about me - emily faith grateke and andrew grateke family photo

Well HI there!

I’m Emily and I’m so happy you’re here!

I'm a wedding photographer based in Southern California. I capture every single detail of your love story. From proposals, to engagement shoots, to your wedding day, to maternity and babies... I want to capture it all! 

My photography style is candid, romantic, and moody! My goal for every shoot is to make you forget I’m even there. I want to capture the real you; that real laugh, that knowing glance between you and your bride, and that real kiss. But don't worry, I give direction when needed. ;) I want you to remember what it FELT like when you first fell in love, every time you look at your pictures! 

My favorite weddings are laid back, romantic, in an epic scenic location! 

<— This is me in my absolute favorite place, with my three boys!

Choosing to use Emily as our engagement/wedding photographer was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! From the moment we arrived for our shoot, she made us feel so comfortable and we were ready to have so much fun! Emily helped us shape the ideas in our head into a perfect plan for the day, and the photos came out looking even better than we could have imagined. All we wanted was for our fun, adventurous relationship to be shown through our photos, and she captured exactly that, plus so many more incredible moments. We are so thankful we chose Emily Faith Photography!

Emily did a birthing & Fresh 48 photo-shoot for us in July 2017. We met during our birthing course in Saint Louis, MO. I always wanted someone to capture my birthing experience. Unfortunately, I never thought I would meet the right photographer to share the most precious moment of my life; until I met Emily. First, Emily is absolutely talented with her work, a natural and a top professional. She arrived promptly to speak to us, which was wonderful because I was absolutely nervous. During our photo-shoot she was able to capture the most beautiful moments of our lives! Emily is amazing! Within a few hours she sent us few photographs to share with our families and friends. Everyone commented on how beautiful and natural our photographs look; Emily definitely captured breathtaking moments. Lastly, Emily and her beautiful family have become part of our family. We had an amazing experience and we will forever be grateful! I couldn’t recommend Emily more! You wont regret it, I promise; Emily’s work is priceless

"One of my highest priorities for my wedding season was to get gorgeous engagement photos. I knew I wanted to hire Emily when I saw how well her work captures intimate emotion and illuminates nature. Even before my now-husband and I arrived for the shoot, Emily was extremely communicative and even helped me plan the outfits I would wear. She made us both feel so comfortable during the photo session- which is not always easy when you're being asked to kiss on camera! I appreciated how she made the whole day fun and lighthearted, and I love how the photos came out even more. We got our pictures back very quickly and we are still over the moon with how they capture our personalities so well. There are so many shots we love, and I feel like the value is incredible for so many amazing pictures. They are some of my all-time favorite photos we've taken, so I am so glad we decided to prioritize an engagement shoot with Emily. I would recommend Emily Faith Photography to any couple looking for an honest, heartfelt, and insanely talented photographer. And I already have! We are so grateful to look back on our photos and fall in love all over again!"

Emily was so great to work with! Her passion for what she does is evident in how she cares for her clients and makes them feel at ease throughout the session. She aims to see your vision and make it real. She made sure she heard and saw my vision for what I wanted and exceeded my expectations of it.
