THE GIRL BEHIND THE LENS.

Let me introduce myself,

My name is Emily Shafer and I am the owner / artist behind Emily Shafer Photography. Photographing people and creating an atmosphere where they look and feel their best is thrilling to me! Nothing fills me with more joy than the thought of people loving the way they look through my photography and showing them how beautiful they truly are.

Photography has been my way of connecting with people ever since I was a little girl. I traveled to study photography in Nashville, TN, and graduated from Nossi College of Art with a commercial photography degree. I am so grateful for the time I had to learn all the complicated aspects of my art form, and for the professionals that I had the privilege of learning from.

Since then, my dreams have grown into being a boutique, portrait photographer. I have set up my own studio in my hometown of Charleston, West Virginia. Photography is more than snapping pictures, it’s preserving a moment in time, capturing the love between people, and expressing what makes you unique. That is why I take my job so seriously, and why being chosen to be your photographer is truly an honor. My goal is simple, to provide the best photography service available for you and your loved ones.
