A lifelong hobbyist turned professional, Emma Dallman prioritizes clients' ease and comfort level through natural posing and emotional perceptiveness, citing her goals for each wedding as, first, creating beautiful art that captures every detail of her couples’ sacred days, and second, ensuring the bride and groom feel as natural and comfortable as possible as she documents their experiences.

A Theology of the Body devotee who has worked in TOB education and ministry, Emma reveres the uniqueness of every person and “"marvel[s] at God’s glory and creativity communicated in every face."

From Emma:

I view it as a privilege to be invited into someone’s “inner circle” on their wedding day.  There are so many emotional, joy-filled, imperfect, and sometimes crazy moments you get to witness as a photographer, and those are the moments that make someone’s day unique and memorable.

Married love means thinking of yourself second. It's always asking yourself, "How can I help my spouse?" It's evaluating whether aspects of your life are good for them or not. Ultimately, it’s helping the other person get to heaven. Photographing a couple as they enter into the sacrament of marriage always reminds me of the blessing of my own Catholic marriage, and encourages me to go home and love my husband a little better.
