Chanell and Ronnie’s wedding is just a little over a month away and after hanging out with them during their Lake Las Vegas engagement photography session, we cannot wait for these two to be wed!  They just have the best chemistry.  Fun and playful one minute and then totally romantic and sweet the next.  It was so wonderful to capture them laughing and just being happy together!  All you need to do is check out the way they look at each other to know how in love they are.

We had a great time walking around Lake Las Vegas getting to know more about them and their wedding day plans.  Engagement sessions are also a nice way for you to get to know us and get used to being in front of the camera.  Then, come the wedding day, it’s just about having a great time together!  We’ll be old friends by then 😉

Now here are few of our favorites from Chanell + Ronnie’s session.  Enjoy!


Are you recently engaged? We’d love to hear from you!  Let’s set up  a time to chat soon :)  Click Here to connect with us!

I just love it when married couples choose to have portraits together.  I think it’s so important to document your love in a fun, romantic, and casual way!  That is exactly what these guys did and we had so much fun together.  I especially loved I was able to photograph them while in Orlando, FL!  It was a nice change of scenery :)

Being anything but average, Holly and Jason decided Vegas would be the ideal spot to tie the knot.  They came from my hometown state of Maryland and brought about a dozen or so friends and family to witness them say “I Do”.  After their ceremony, we met up with the trendy couple at the iconic Neon Museum.  When I saw Holly’s black wedding dress and bright red lips, well, I just knew we were in for a treat.  We had such a great time capturing their happy smiles among the old casino signs.  When our time was up at the Neon Museum, we made our way to Freemont St. and walked around another iconic Vegas area.  Once the sun started to go down, we made sure to get a few shots of the Vegas lights coming on!  Holly and Jason were two people we could have just continued to hang out with way after our session with them was over.  They’re fun, easy-going, and full of love!  We wish them nothing but happiness and beautiful adventures together in their marriage!

I’ve been working on something new for months now and hinting about it on our facebook page!   Well, the day is finally here and I’m thrilled to now be offering lifestyle and children photography, as well as weddings & couples. This is an entirely new endeavor and we’ll have an entirely separate website, facebook page, and instagram for my family photography.  Why not add another portfolio page to The Emerics and call it a day? Here’s why.   The  name for this new site is Jessie Emeric | Lifestyle Photographer.  Keeping it simple, folks!  But, as you can tell by the name, this is just me. Yup, Jason won’t be photographing the kiddos and families alongside me.  So, it just made sense to have a separate website for my lifestyle kids and family portraits, plus it’s a different set of clients.  Of course, Jason and I will most definitely still be offering the same photography coverage for wedding, engagement, and couples here!  We absolutely love photographing weddings together and nothing’s changing about that!

Here’s the deal, though, I don’t just want to offer plain ‘ol family portraits or stiff and boring photos of your child. No way! I want to offer families the same kind of happy, natural, and fun photos we offer our wedding couples. I want to capture the natural smiles, the belly laughs, the family connections. To me, photography is all about documenting life and life is unscripted and definitely not perfect. But life is oh so beautiful and if you let me, I want to show you how beautiful you and your family are, imperfections and all.

So, head on over to my new website and have a looksie, then go to the blog and enter the giveaway!!!  Up for grabs is one child, family, or high school senior lifestyle portraits session.


Thanks so much to all the families who have already allowed me to capture a bit of their awesome families and kiddos!  I really am excited to meet many more wonderful families and kids who want something a little different to capture their loves! xo
