Hello there! I'm Emma!
I have been taking pictures since I was a little girl, playing with a hot pink point-and-shoot, taking pictures of my friends and my little brother. However, I've been a professional since 2015, earning my photography degree in 2021. I grew up dreaming of becoming a wedding photographer, and in 2013 I started that process. When asked why "Pop of Pure"? I answer with this: I chose the name Pop of Pure because I want to capture the absolute purity of who you are, where you are, and what you look like. The Pop comes from my Bubbly Personality! I work with my clients to help them feel comfortable, beautiful, and confident in the photos I take. I believe that to best capture who someone truly is, I have to take time to get to know them. It's the beauty of simplicity, and I aspire to show off the wonderful life that stands in front of my lens, whoever that life may belong to.
As for the more FUN side of me, here are some things you should know! ;-)
I collect Pop Funko Figures, mugs, sweaters and Christmas decorations. My favorite color is what I like to call "Rubber Ducky Yellow". And I am five foot exactly and proud of it!
I love playing video games, bike rides, and I especially love to swim! Not a perfectionist in the slightest, but I do love looking for the small things. I have been told I am funny, but I'm not sure that's true. I Love Jesus, and am an active member in my church, in Worship as well as Children's and Teen Ministry.
And finally, Whether it's a wedding, graduation, an anniversary, engagement, a new baby, or just pictures for Grandma: documenting the purity of Relationship is always my main goal.
Joshua is my Second Shooter. He specializes in architecture, landscape, and object photography. He keeps me on track, and carries my ladder because I'm too short to carry it with dignity.
I've known Josh for a little over 9 years after meeting him in a Photography Basics class in middle school. We've worked side-by-side on our High School dance team, as employees for Mont Lamm Events, and as novice baristas. Before working together, I greatly respected and admired Joshua's work as a photographer. When my business was only an idea, I knew I wanted to work with him. Amazingly, through some minor miracle, he was available for work!
A day in Joshua's typical week includes working at a candle company, teaching at an Irish dance studio with more than a decade of personal experience, and loving the color orange and coffee. Thanks to his two sisters, one older and one younger, he's got some sass and is super fun to work with. All while being dedicated to capturing the sweetest little details of your day!
And now! Introducing, David!
Hi, I'm David!
I grew up on a farm and have always had a love for the outdoors. I started taking pictures at a young age just trying to capture any simple thing that I thought was cool or beautiful to look at, and that kinda transitioned into landscape photography, which then turned into portraits, and later on weddings!
Photography is just one of my creative outlets. I also enjoy videography and just being creative in every day life!
A couple fun facts about me:
- I love Jesus
- I am a coffee connoisseur
- I really enjoy fitness and learning how to eat healthy
- Music is one of my passions. I play drums, piano, guitar, and I sing as well.
- my favorite color is ocean blue
- I am 6'4" and an 1/8 to be exact
Most importantly, I will help ensure that we capture the most impactful and special moments of your Wedding Day and document them for you to enjoy for years to come!
