My Story


Light Your Life. Share Your Story.  Love Your Look.


Hi! I’m Emily, a midwest girl who grew up to be an east coast mom. My destiny, however, is to be an islander, despite my fair complexion. My oldest daughter was actually born in Bermuda! I like spring mornings in the garden, summer afternoons at the pool, autumn evenings on the deck and winter nights, warm inside, by the fire. I love severe thunderstorms, apocalyptic movies, banana rum and, of course, my family.  I will happily share my latest vacation photos with you if you ask. Be warned, it might take awhile, I have a lot.  I am a photographer who loves photographing people of all ages and stages - it feeds my soul and warms my heart. I’m Emily, founder, owner and photographer at Emily Brunner Photography!

Your photo session will be a custom experience, created just for you. I will work with you from the initial planning consultation to delivering your products at home. I can even hang your canvases on the day of delivery, no handyman required! Session fee pricing starts at $150 and most clients will invest $500-$900 on their portraits. 

When & Where:
I work throughout the Main Line and surrounding areas of Philadelphia. Your session is totally customized, so we will choose a location that suits you. Your favorite park, my studio, your home or even the streets of your town are some of the possibilities. We want beautiful light for your portraits so for outside sessions, we will try to time yours to the golden hours just after sunrise or just before sunset.

Your story deserves to be showcased and shared as art, not hidden away as a digital file on an old computer. I want you to have an heirloom photo album filled with beautiful images of everyone in your family, and walls in your home filled with one of a kind family portraits.

Contact me and we'll get started!
