We Speak to Emily of Clicke Photography
Who is Emily, the artist behind the camera?
Hi! I’m Emily! The heart and soul behind all those beautiful images you’re seeing! I’m a 20 something bubbly outgoing girl who is my couples biggest fan! I love iced lattes, my heated seats, chocolate chip cookies (let’s be honest, this should be the first thing on the list!) and my amazing fiance, Tyler! I have two amazing huge dogs who I adore so much. Hemi, who is our German Shepherd was our second dog together! He’s definitely our baby! Charlie, our bulldog pitbull mix, is the biggest baby you will ever meet! He loves long cuddles! I love connecting with my couples who also love their animals!
When did you first realize your passion for photography, and how has this journey cultivated you into the photography team you are now?
I always had a camera in my hand, taking classes in high school to further my knowledge about photography! After high school, I went to college for Radiology. Fast forward a few years, I was working a full time job behind a desk as a receptionist (me behind a desk just wasn’t working!) One of my friends had seen my old portfolio and took me along to one of her weddings, WHERE I FELL BACK IN LOVE WITH MY CAMERA, AND OF COURSE WEDDINGS!!! It was at that point I left my full time job to start my business and jump head first into the industry. To say I am doing what I was born to do is an understatement. I freakin’ love this job, and all the people who cross my path. Being able to watch my passion turn into a thriving business is truly a dream come true and is so humbling. I love every single one of my couples from the bottom of my heart and am so so thankful to be doing this!!!
How would you describe your photography style?
What makes my couples able to be themselves in front of my camera is the experience I am able to give them. Being a full service photographer, I am with my couples every. step. of. the. way. By getting to know each one of my couples and doing an engagement session (which is complimentary 🙂 ), my couples are able to relax and let their personalities truly shine! My style is fun, relaxed and romantic. I want you to look back on your images and remember the way you two look at each other.

What is the process like for couples who want to book you for their wedding?
Most of my couples find me on social media! And since I have such a strong presence on my Instagram, most of my couples already feel as if they know me before even inquiring! I encourage all my inquiries to chat with me on the phone or in person making the decision to book with me, to ensure we are a good fit! My bubbly outgoing personality isn’t for everyone, and that is okay!! When you’re ready to book, just say the word! And I will send over an online contract and invoice. Booking is as easy as signing the contract and paying the 25% retainer! BOOM! That’s it! Now the fun begins 🙂 Well start to get to know each other through asking each other questions and chatting back and forth! I help all my brides plan their complimentary engagement session after booking so you aren’t on your own! Engagement sessions are my favorite way to get to know you both and see you two interact with each other before the wedding!
What do you love most about photographing weddings/couples?
I honestly LOVE getting to know everyone. Seeing two people come together as one and learn about all the love stories makes my heart sing. I also love giving my couples memories they can cherish for the rest of their lives. That’s such a honor and privilege to me!! The wedding day is full of SO many moving parts! And I love them all. Prep. The groom seeing his bride for the first time. Saying I do. And everything else!!

Besides weddings, what other moments do you like to capture?
My couples LOVE to come back to me for maternity and newborn photos! And I love seeing my brides growing their family and for me to get the opportunity to photograph you two again is amazing!
