about emily bartell
I'm Emily, a wedding and portrait photographer based in Richmond, Virginia. I am passionate about telling your story through beautiful images that will stand the test of time. I focus on getting to know you before you step in front of the camera, capturing your true personality, and providing you with a wonderful experience.
I have always been a creative and drawn to the arts world, but it wasn’t until my own wedding that I fell in love with photography. Throughout the entire process it was evident how much our wedding photographer enjoyed her work; I was inspired by the way she was able to capture our story so beautifully, from the big picture moments to the most intimate details.
Aside from being a photographer, I’m a wife and mom to the sweetest twin boys. I’m also an animal lover, with two dogs of my own. A few of my favorite things include food, fashion, and any excuse to travel! Nature is my happy place, whether it’s taking in a mountain view or relaxing on the beach.
If you think we’d be a great fit and are ready to learn more, head over to the contact page and let’s get started. I’d love to connect and hear your story!
