Meet Emily

Hey y'all!!  Thank you so much for stopping by!  My name is Emily McDowell.  My photography journey began at a very young age.  Images of butterflies and flowers in my backyard soon evolved into a love of capturing people in the beauty of nature.  While in high school, I began to pursue my dreams of becoming a professional photographer and started Emily Lauren Photography! In 2018, I graduated with a photography degree from North Georgia Technical College.


I strive to create images that are timeless and colorful.  No overexposed or dark and moody editing going on here! What excites me most about my craft is that I have the ability to freeze a moment in time.  It fills me with such joy that I am able to use this talent that God has blessed me with to provide my clients with something that they can treasure for a lifetime.  I am passionate about getting to know each and every client so that they feel comfortable and confident in front of my camera.  I strive to capture you at your very best and help display your unique personality.

I am based out of Northeast Georgia but I am willing to travel anywhere to be your photographer.  I love adventuring to new places with my clients! Whether it is the mountains, a tropical destination, or in my hometown, let's do it! :) 



You have found your photographer...look no further! Emily flew out of the country for our destination wedding & continued to go above and beyond our expectations the entire time. All of our photos are absolutely amazing, she was so quick to get them to us, and she was extremely organized and prepared! We were very picky in choosing our photographer and are so pleased she was willing to travel with us. We have hundreds of photos that captured every second of our wedding and going through our album never gets old. She is wonderful!!!
