Love, Emily

Hello!

I’m

Emily,

the

owner

&

lead

photographer of Poppie Studios. One of my favorite things in the world is the ability to share in the love of two souls as they come together as one. I feel blessed to get to work with such wonderful people.

Ba s e d out of Ta lla ha sse e, Florida, I have b e en sho oting we ddings fo r a l mo st t e n ye a rs now! I fe el very fortunate to have found my dre a m job and p assion in life. When I’m not behind the camera, you can find me at the beach with my two rescue fur-children, Bailee and Frank. We take total advantage of the abundance of sunshine every chance we get! There’s never a dull moment in our house! After graduating from Ball State University with degrees in Fine Art Photography and Advertising Art, I started documenting weddings of friends and family members to build up my portfolio. In 2010, I started my own business and have never looked back!

frequently asked questions

ANSWERS TO HELP GUIDE YOU THROUGH MY WORK

Q: WH AT MAKES YOU D I F F E R E N T F RO M E VE RYO N E E LS E ?

A: I take all of my photos in intimate, relaxed settings and try to use natural lighting as often as possible. Most noticeably though, I shoot beautiful, grainy, yummy film - which naturally lends itself to the light, airy photos we’ve all come to love. Q: H OW M ANY P HOTOGR A PH E R S WI L L BE AT O U R WE DD ING ?

A: It depends on the size of the wedding, but typically it will be only myself. Although you can always add on a second photographer for an additional cost. Q: WILL WE GET FEATU R E D I N A M AGA Z I N E O R BL O G ?

A: Many of my sessions get featured, but this is not something that is guaranteed. Most publishers are interested in colorful, uniquely designed weddings! Q: DO YOU P HOTO GR A PH E L O PE M E N TS?

A: Of course! Depending on availability and the number of hours you have set aside for photography, I have special rates for weekday weddings and elopements. Q: HOW S OON AFTER OU R WE DDI N G D O GE T O U R PH OTOS ?

A: Because I shoot film, it must be processed by an outside lab. Their standard turnaround time is 3 weeks. After that, I cull, edit and refine your photos with an average delivery date approximately 6 weeks after your wedding day. Q : HOW DO W E R E C E I VE O U R PH OTO GR A PH S?

A: Your photos will be provided via an online gallery, which remains online for 90 days from date of delivery. I recommend that you download all of your photos and store them in a secure place (iCloud, DVDs, etc). After 90 days, albums are moved offline to my offsite storage provider. From the gallery you can order various products such as prints, enlargements and frames.

Q: WE’RE DOI NG A DES TIN ATI O N WE DDI N G, D O YO U TR AV E L ?

A: Yes! I love destination weddings and have been lucky enough to travel for client’s weddings. Send me more information about your travel plans and I’ll create a custom wedding collection to meet your needs.


bridal tips N E CE S S I T I E S

FLOR ALS

Stash a small duffel or large shoulder bag to use the day of the wedding. You won’t want to bring an entire suitcase to the bridal suite, but a smaller bag with anything you may need the day of will come in handy.

You spend a lot of time and money on your wedding flowers so why not preserve them? There are several options: you can choose to air dry, press, silica-gel dry, or freeze dry your wedding flowers.

M O M E NT S

A week or so before the ceremony, supply your photographer with a list of moments that are important to you. Keep in mind, each shot takes about four minutes so plan accordingly when allotting time for photos.

The day of your wedding can be full of people with questions, well-wishes and cameras. It can be difficult to keep your energy up when you’re “on show” for 12 hours. Make time for yourself on the big day: whether you stretch, have a glass of wine or a good laugh with your bridesmaids.

groom tips GI F T

R I N GS

Send your bride a gift the morning of the wedding. Or a letter. Or both. After all the planning, stress and probably a few tears, this morning is your first and best opportunity to remind her she’s what matters most.

Know where the rings are. Check on this. Then check again. Your groomsmen have the easiest job of anyone at the wedding, but one of them is likely in charge of the only task with any real significance. Make sure your ring bearer comes bearing rings.

Having at least 30 minutes for details ensures that I have plenty of time to get beautiful photos of the details of the day. There are times when a hotel room is too crowded or simply unappealing; so I may have to take the dress all the way down to the lobby or even outside. This can take some time it’s well worth the additional work. PR E PA R ATI O N

Having 45 minutes to an hour of preparation is ideal for my style. During this time, I’m getting close-ups of the makeup and hair being applied as well as the candid moments as the bridesmaids and groomsmen get ready. Keep in mind that these are some of the most emotional and fun times of the day, so you don’t want to cut it short. I NDI VI DUA L PO R TR A I TS

Right after prep, for about 20-30 minutes, is the best time for individual portraits of the bride and groom (separately). Besides makeup and hair being completely fresh, the day hasn’t gotten hectic yet so we can take our time and get those perfect portraits. F I R ST L O O K

The first look should be around 15-20 minutes. During this time, the bride and groom enjoy seeing each other for the first time on the wedding day. While the actual first look might only be 5-10 minutes, the rest of the time is spent on a few basic portraits of the bride and groom. CER E M O N Y + VE N U E

Before the guests are seated, this is the only opportunity I have to capture the beauty of the reception room prior to guest arrival. W EDDI NG PA R TY + FA M I LY

Immediate Family Photos take about 45 minutes to 1 hour. It’s important to have additional images with your parents, grandparents, and siblings beyond the basic formal. Plan on 3 minutes per group on average. For example, if you have 10 groups, schedule in a 30 minute time slot. We all know how much weddings mean to the immediate family, and we want to make sure we’re capturing enough photos with them. I also recommend creating a list of groups and helpers from each side of the family to help round people up.


TH ANK YOU SO M UCH! I know you have unlimited options when it comes to choosing a wedding photographer. It means the world that you’ve reached out to me. I’d love to document the most important day of your lives. 850.728.3113
