creating images with depth and emotion for the modern romantic

ENTER

Most days you can find me in middle of preserving someone's love story so they can never forget how beautiful it is...

I frequent local and online boutiques, trips to Panera, the grocery store and, lets be honest, Target's always on the list.

When I'm not talking with brides or shooting and editing their weddings, I'm seeking fresh air, sun on my skin and sand under my feet... or a Magnolia magazine.

I'm Emily

I've booked weddings in Arizona, North Carolina, Tennessee, Minnesota, Iowa, North Dakota and South Dakota... and I'm still terrible at packing.

"EMILY HAS LEFT US SPEECHLESS..."

She is the definition of a go-giver. From our first message to the last, she took deep and caring interest in our story and vision. Surprise engagements aren't always easy to plan, but the pieces fell perfectly together with the help of Emily's ideas and enthusiastic spirit. We could not have asked for a more magical moment! Sioux Falls has a true gem of an artist in Emily Mitton, and there is no limit as to how far her talents will go. I'm happy to say that Molly & I gained two great friends in the process — THANK YOU!

REVIEW

"I had to sit down because I began crying tears of joy." 

This was by far the most fun my husband and I have ever had taking photos. The very best part was after we got our photos back (EXTREMELY FAST) I had to sit down because I began crying tears of joy! It's been an emotional rollercoaster for us the last 2 years and Emily had taken my vision for these photos and given them wings. They came out far better then I could have ever expected and Emily will forever be our photographer.

"she is the epitome of talent and professionalism."

Words do not do this girl justice. Both my husband and I could not have hoped for a better photographer. Tensions were high leading up to the ceremony, and Emily calmly reassured us that it was perfectly normal and okay for things to get a little hectic, which changed our attitudes and allowed us to take great pictures and have a great time at our wedding!

"Our wedding guests made so many comments..."

If you are looking for a photographer (especially wedding), you need to do yourself a favor and book Emily and her husband ASAP! Not only are they wonderful people but they are SO talented. My husband and I could not be happier with how our wedding photos turned out & we got them back unbelievably quick! Our wedding guests made so many comments to me about how kind our photographers were and have been raving about the pictures.

"I teared up when I first saw the pictures..." 

Ben and Emily are so passionate about what they do, and it shows in the excellence of their work! Emily is so good at directing you in posing... Photographs of your wedding day are such an important thing to have done well, because the day goes so fast that you don't even see half of what is going on! I am so glad we had a second shooter, and I teared up when I first saw the pictures of my handsome groom getting ready!

"She so clearly cares about her working relationships." 

As a professional Makeup Artist I work with a lot of wedding vendors regularly and I cannot speak highly enough of Emily! I know the bride adored her and we all love her work but she was also so thoughtful when it came to working side by side with the other vendors. She so clearly cares about her working relationships and is super professional and extremely talented. I hope we get to work together again because it was an absolute pleasure!

"The bride and groom shoot we did was the highlight to my wedding day..."

Emily made my wedding day so stress free, fun, and memorable. Honestly, the bride and groom shoot we did after the wedding was so enjoyable, I found it to be a highlight to my day instead of just something that later I was "glad I did." She successfully captured the style I was looking for, even when I couldn't completely envision it myself.

REVIEW

I wasn't looking for love when it came my way, but now that It's here, I'm a lifer.

Before I was married, I used to FEEL that the season surrounding your wedding would be the height of your love story –

now I know better.

It's just the beginning.

It will come sometime.

Some beautiful morning she will just wake up and find it is Tomorrow. Not Today but Tomorrow. And then things will happen ... wonderful things.

Yes, I travel all the time! I'm based out of Sioux Falls, SD, but if you love my work and want me to come to you, I'd be thrilled to make the trip. P.S. I'm hoping to return to the Carolinas this year, so if that's where you're saying your vows, we're a match made in heaven.

I've never missed a wedding yet, but God forbid I should suddenly fall deathly ill, you're still in good hands. I'm part of a network of 300 local photographers and 18,000 international photographers that have each other's backs. In fact, I've stepped in myself and been the replacement with only an hour's notice, so I know what it takes! We would immediately find you a replacement of equal or greater value and personally cover any additional expense.

I guarantee 50 photos per hour of shooting, but usually deliver much more. This number varies greatly based on coverage time, amount of details to capture, travel times between locations, weather, extra staff or video personnel needing time with the couple, etc.

I will very rarely take on family or lifestyle sessions when I am not booked up with weddings, but I specialize in couples: their engagements, weddings and anniversaries.
