about emily bartell


I'm Emily, a wedding and portrait photographer based in Richmond, Virginia. I am passionate about telling your story through beautiful images that will stand the test of time.  I focus on getting to know you before you step in front of the camera, capturing your true personality, and providing you with a wonderful experience.

I have always been a creative and drawn to the arts, but it wasn’t until my own wedding that I truly fell in love with photography.  Throughout the entire process it was evident how much our wedding photographer enjoyed her work; I was inspired by the way she was able to capture our story so beautifully, from the big picture moments to the most intimate details.

Aside from being a photographer, I’m a wife to my best friend, mom to the sweetest twin boys, and animal lover with two dogs of my own. A few of my favorite things include food, fashion, and any excuse to travel! Nature is my happy place, whether it’s taking in a mountain view or relaxing on the beach.  

If you think we’d be a great fit and are ready to learn more, head over to the contact page and let’s get started. I’d love to connect and hear your story!
