My name is Jennifer and I am from Grand Rapids, Michigan.  I graduated from Calvin College with a B.A. in photography and graphic design.

I realized my passion for photography as soon as I got my first job in a mini-lab. Working with the film made me understand how precious a photograph can be to someone. It is so much fun to discover how different every person is with their own styles in weddings, portrait sessions, and just in general. I have gotten to known so many amazing beatiful people and I am excited to now meet even more and shoot some fantastic pictures.

My camera of choice currently is a Canon 5d Mark III, with a backup Canon 7D. In short - super amazing cameras. My favorite two lenses of choice are the 24mm f/3.5TS-E, and 35mm f/1.4. Fixed lenses are where it's at! But I have several other lenses as well to capture every moment of your special day!

Many people have asked me, "Why Emily-Waid Photography?" I chose to use my middle name after considering many others. Plus it made such a great logo!

I shoot my subjects mainly outside in natural light, since I find it incredibly beautiful. My genre is lifestyle, and I make sure the client is as comfortable as possible. True smiles always make for the best pictures!

Curious about my second shooter?
