Meet Emily

How long have you lived in Nebraska?

We moved to Nebraska from Treynor, Iowa when I was five years old. I grew up in Fremont, Nebraska. I moved to Lincoln and attended the University of Nebraska - Lincoln.

Tell us about your family.
I married my husband Jeff in the fall of 2010. Our one-year-old Pomeranian, Iggy Piggy keeps us on our toes. We love to spend as much time as possible with our 14 nieces and nephews - hosting sleepovers, attending little league sporting events and all the cuddles this Aunt Emmy of theirs can get out of them. We are also so thrilled to be in the waiting period of growing our family through adoption.

Why are you excited to have the Emily Hardy Photography Team?

Having a team is something I have dreamed about for years. Each of these gals are so amazing. Amy is my right-hand and helps keep business flowing. Her positive outlook on life is such a gift. Jen takes all of the crazy ideas running around my head and makes them happen. She is one of the most thoughtful people I know. Jolie is truly our missing-link and she rounds out our team so perfectly. Her quick smile and caring nature is one of a kind.

What are you most passionate about?

Sharing my love of photography with the world. I fell in love with photography as a child. I would sit and look at our family photo albums for hours. Family photos are so precious and remind us of where and who we come from.

What's your favorite thing to do with your family photos?

Gift them! My absolute favorite thing is to surprise friends, family and my amazing clients with gifts of prints and products.

I can’t say it enough, Emily is not only a wonderful photographer, but also a wonderful person. She is so easy to work with and makes all of our pictures stunning. We love Emily Hardy Photography and would recommend her to everyone.

I choose Emily Hardy Photography to do my engagement photos and my wedding photos. I absolutely loved working with Emily Hardy Photography!! She did amazing work, and was a joy to work with. She captured every perfect moment from my wedding. She went over and beyond what i expected from my photos and photography experience!

I recommend Emily for any type of photo session you are looking for. She will give you amazing memorable photos and you'll have fun while you take them.
