E. M. Anderson Photography is
a free spirited wedding photographer
serving Jacksonville, Florida and beyond. 

Hey guys! I'm Emily, obsessed with the art of photography, an extroverted introvert, and always up for beach time. 
Weddings are completely fascinating because there are so many different, special relationships all coming together on one big day. 
The bride and groom, mothers and daughters, brothers and sisters, highschool besties, the list goes on.

Weddings are just exploding with all the awesome parts of life.

Get Comfortable

Weddings are a big deal for sure, with all the moving parts and decisions to be made, but that doesn't mean it has to be stressful. Once your wedding starts, the only thing you should be thinking about is being together forever with the person you love best. I make sure to help both of you be comfortable and relaxed, because that's how you can be your beautiful, real self.

People are art.

Magical, curious, funny, thoughtful, quiet, kind, weird,...  Every single person I photograph is interesting and valuable;  a chance to create something deeply beautiful.  


Real life beauty is the best

Stiff and manufactured poses may get lots of instagram likes but it doesn't show the unique beauty of who a couple really is. I want you two to look back at your wedding photos in 20 years and say 'Oh, that is SO us!'. I'll give direction when you need it, and be a fly on the wall when you don't.

Every photo I take is about telling the gorgeous, messy, REAL story of your day. 


What my clients are saying

The photos BLEW ME AWAY. They brought us to tears! You captured our day better than I could have ever imagined possible. I already felt that you were a great fit for us just because you were so amazing and easy to work with, but now I am certain that this was a match made in heaven.
— Jordi N.
Picking a photographer for your one big day can be overwhelming but you cannot go wrong with Emily. She is very flexible and great at what she does! I can’t say enough good things about Emily and our photographs.
— Brittany I.


Choosing a photographer can be overwhelming, let alone planning a whole wedding! Everyone saying 'Pick me! Pick me!' and it's hard to even know what you want in a photographer until you've already had one. I'm here to help you think through exactly what you need. There's no such thing as a dumb question so please reach out and ask away!
