"In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary." - Aaron Rose
We believe that the entire universe conspires soul mates to find each other. That serendipity, wander-lust, adventures, and the grand scheme of life are to be celebrated.
Our goal is to document the pretty details, the organic moments, the joyful tears, belly laughs, and the quiet beauty of your wedding day.
We hold ourselves with the highest standard and aim to provide the best service, as well education and professional advice so you’re always making informed decisions.
With a curated and editorial eye, we document each portrait, detail, and moment with refinement. We direct and step in when we need to – moving your dress or invitations to be composed artfully, along with directing + guiding during portraits for luminous natural light, authentic moments, and flattering angles.
Stories will outlive us when we’re long gone. They are our legacy and they are worthy. We are eternally grateful to photograph love for a living, to be trusted with such responsibility, and to be consumed with art + beauty on a daily basis.
My husband and I were so lucky to have found Emma! Working with her was an absolute breeze from start to finish. Wedding planning was one of the most complicated and stressful processes we've ever tackled, but I can confidently say Emma never gave me any reason to stress. She was one of the most dedicated and organized of all our vendors. She's straightforward, very detail-oriented and delivers top notch service and results. During our wedding day, Emma and Allen were completely patient, flexible and kept everyone comfortable through a very long (and hot) day. Choosing the right team of vendors was such an important part of our wedding day and we're glad we didn't go wrong with Ether and Smith.

If wedding photographs are important to you, you've found the RIGHT wedding photographers! Emma and Allen are amazing at what they do and are worth every penny. [They] are kind, professional and talented artists. They made my man feel at ease taking photos (his least favorite activity) and provided us with SO MANY hi-res, museum worthy images. I highly recommend them. They will do awesome work, be compassionate towards you and will not let you down. Congratulations on your big day and finding your best photographer!!

Emma is AMAZING. 100% the best vendor I worked with for my wedding (and I did work with some fantastic vendors). Not only was she supremely organized and just all around on top of it (at times better than my planner), she brought this excitement and energy that made me and my now-husband feel confident that the pictures were going to capture everything we wanted and more.
03. Jenny & Devin
Ether & Smith was the most wonderful vendor to work with. We had already put in a deposit with another photographer but decided to jump ship after discovering them. Ether & Smith is made up of a wife-husband team, Emma and Allen. Emma's level of communication, professionalism, and customer service truly sets her apart from the rest of the vendors. From the first welcome/thank you card to the post-wedding communication, my wife and I didn't have to play guessing games because we were well taken care of.
04. Jeena & James
My husband and I (and our wedding planner) kept saying that hiring Ether & Smith was one of the best decisions we made when it came to our wedding. And we made a lot!! Our photographer was one part of our big day that we knew we didn't have to worry about, that we would be taken care of and captured beautifully. Boy were we right! We are madly in love with her editorial/ethereal/film style. This husband and wife duo have artful and amazing eyes, and were able to find and capture priceless moments from our special day that we will now have forever. They were worth every penny!
05. Kacie & Austin
We met Emma and Allen over a cup of coffee and quickly realized that their friendly, approachable personalities would make them the perfect photographers for our special day. Emma’s photographic style is timeless and she has a fantastic eye for composition creating the most dreamy-romantic photos! Emma was a pleasure to work with. We had lots of fun! She made us feel relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera and she was discreet whilst also being authoritative when she needed to be. We are still getting countless compliments on our photos and we cannot wait for another big event so we can work with her again!
