Meet Emily

My name is Emily Shafer and I am the owner / artist behind Emily Shafer Photography. It is an absolute privilege that you have considered hiring me as your photographer. You have a story that needs to shown, and it is so important that you feel relaxed, comfortable, and excited when you step in front of my camera. You will receive a collection of images that captures your beauty, preserves a moment of time, and inspires you with every glance you give. It fills my heart with joy to serve you and to create something you will treasure for a lifetime. Thank you for letting me be a part of it!

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 is 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.
