i’m the person behind the camera

I’m Emily (or you can call me Em), the owner & photographer at Emily Blackford Photography. I love being able to share in the love of two individuals and feel blessed to get to work with such wonderful people each day!
I am based out of St. Louis, MO and I am fully in love with photography! There isn't a day that goes by that I am not so thankful to be doing my dream job. I am here to make this process as simple as possible for you and I am happy to help with each step along the way!

My Approach

I am here for YOU and to make this process simple and carefree so you can focus on enjoying your big day to the fullest! I want you to feel comfortable and for you to have the time of your life! From your engagement session to your wedding day I want to capture the moments authentically and tell your story beautifully!

Your experience is my top priority and I am happy to go above and beyond for your day to be exactly how you imagine it! I like to think of myself as a friend throughout your planning process, so please do not hesitate to reach out with anything you need!


what sets you apart from other photographers?

I believe fully that my clients wants and needs are the most important part of my job and I will go above and beyond to make your wedding planning process and wedding day wonderful! My favorite part of my job is the people I get to meet and capture and I value connection with each person in front of my lens. This means that not only will the moments captures be authentic but we will have a darn good time too!

How long does it take to recieve photos after the session or wedding and how will those be delivered?

Sessions take 2 weeks to receive your photos back! For weddings, you will receive sneak peeks within 3 days of your wedding and your full gallery within 2 months! All galleries will go to your email in an online gallery format.

Do you have a list of preferred vendors?

Yes! I have worked with some AMAZING vendors from planners, florists and hair and makeup artists to venues and videographers & I would love to share their information with you!

How do we book you?

A 20% deposit & signed contract is required in order to get your wedding day on the calendar.
