Emmie Jackson is a wedding and elopement photographer for adventure loving couples based in Alaska.


My approach to photography is to capture your story as authentically as possible. That means I’ll rarely force you into those awkward poses, and my greatest desire is to work with you to capture your vision. If you’re wanting me to show up on your big day or your session, ask you to stand pretty and smile….ummmm…I might not be your gal. I’m the photographer who will show up and SERVE YOU in any way that I can. Whether that’s fixing your hair, making sure you’ve eaten, blotting your face, carrying your lip gloss, repinning your boutonniere, or filling your champagne, I am there for YOU.  

An Alaska farm girl, lover of haikus and big hugs, 2000s pop fanatic, and the owner and gal behind the camera at Emelia K Photography. I like fun people who love life, too.

Here I sit smiling | I cannot wait to meet you. | Let’s become great friends.

My haiku for you: 

I'm Emmie.

  1. I learned that you need to click with your photographer. You need to get to know each other. You spend more of your wedding day with your photographer than with your soon-to-be spouse! Forming that relationship from our initial consult call is so important to me. 

  2. I learned that everyone deserves a personalized experience. Your relationship tells a story that is unlike any other. It is so important to me that your photos on your wedding day are uniquely you.

  3. Lastly, I learned that being in front of the camera can be stressful when it should be a total blast! I do all that I can to put you at ease and ensure we have FUN. I guide you through everything from wardrobe choices for your engagement session to timelines for your wedding day. I make sure that by the time you get in front of the camera, we are total BFFs.

I never set out to be a wedding photographer but back in 2018, I found myself in your shoes. Marrying my better half, partner-in-everything, and best friend. It was the most perfect day that I still dream about. Planning my own wedding and the experience I had with my photographer taught me so much about what I wanted my business to be for others.

let's go

While my home base is in Anchorage, I rarely stay there for more than a few days at a time in the summer. I’m ready to pack my bags to travel anywhere across Alaska and beyond. Whether you’re planning a helicopter glacier elopement, a kayaking engagement session, or a wedding at one of Alaska’s gorgeous wedding venues, I’ve got you covered. Let me know your itinerary and I’ll send you my travel costs!
