about emily

hi there! i’m emily, and i take photos.

i take photos of lots of different things, but people are my favorite. i love to shoot portraits and events, and i strive to show people how they really are in the moments that i capture. i want my photos to tell you about the people in them, and i want those people to be able to look at their photos and remember feelings that can otherwise be hard to capture.

i graduated from a small liberal arts school in upstate new york in 2009 with my BA in studio art. originally intending to work for disney for five months on a college program internship, i ended up becoming a permanent transplant to central florida and worked as a photopass photographer for almost two years. during that time, i realized that i wanted to be in creative control of the images i created for people, and decided to start my own company so that i could capture the magic on my own terms. e. gilbert photography was created in the fall of 2010 and i never looked back.

as a self-proclaimed geek, i love all things nerdy & kitschy. i’m a foodie, but i also have a strange affinity for junk food & all things overly salty. i watch way too much television while i edit my photos. i love anything joss whedon, baz luhrman or wes anderson. if you let me loose in a craft store or target, i’ll be gone for hours. i love firefly, doctor who, harry potter, jurassic park, and anything & everything disney. i also like sushi, wes anderson movies, banjos, pinterest, my dog charlie & cat godfrey, chai tea, young adult fiction, and planning my vacations to the point of obsession & spreadsheets.

i love capturing weddings of all kinds, but i specialize in telling the stories of couples who choose to express their love in less traditional ways – ways that feel true to who they are. if you’re planning a wedding that’s styled after your personalities, i might be the right photographer for you. e. gilbert photography offers affordable & creative wedding photography in orlando & central florida.

my work has been featured on Style Me Pretty, Rock ‘n Roll Bride, Ruffled, The Lovely Find, Magical Day Weddings, When Geeks Wed, and The NotWedding Blog.
