Emily, the photos are absolutely amazing!! You totally captured the moment, and now we have these beautiful images that I am still looking at every single day!! I am so glad that I found you (all the way from Georgia) and that you were available. I would suggest to any bride to be sure and look you up for their big day!! Thanks again from the mother of the bride!!

Dear Emily, Thank you so much for being part of our special day! Despite the rainy start, everything turned out even better than we could have asked for, and we were so glad to have you there capturing all of the special moments. You made the experience even better with the easiest, least stressful photo session ever! We are truly appreciative!

Philip and I cannot thank you enough for all of the gorgeous photos you captured on our special day! We sincerely appreciated you standing knee-deep in snow + being outside in the cold for our dream Colorado wedding! You are an absolute rock star!

You did an amazing job in a short time (due to the freezing weather). You were able to use the trees to block the wind and blowing snow. You captured our happy little family in a beautiful setting. Although it was chilly, you kept us moving and the photos were amazing!!!

Emily, we cannot thank you enough for capturing all the joy & laughter on our wedding day. You are a phenomenal photographer. Thank you again!


Emily, you’re an excellent photographer.  The photos look great even though it would have been better had the day been cloudy.  And with your cheerful and encouraging personality, you made us all feel very comfortable.  It was an enjoyable experience.

We seriously love the wedding photos!  Every single one of them!  It definitely exceeded our expectations and I could not be happier with them.  You were such a joy to work with and I couldn’t have imagined a more perfect day!  I can not stop looking at them, I’ve probably looked at them 1000 times already!... Thank you so much again, you truly captured our day and made it perfect! It is like I am reliving the day over and over again! It was such a beautiful and fun day and we are happy that you were the one to tag along with us! Thanks so much again! Seriously, a million times THANK YOU! You are the best!

Emily, Our photos are amazing... You did an absolutely perfect job of capturing our personalities and they are stunning! Thank you so much! I am so HAPPY!!!!




Absolutely loved working with Emily. Quick to respond to all my emails. Coming from out of state I didn't know the area but expressed my wishes to her & she had the perfect spot for us! The photos were amazing, great quality work for sure. We will use her again when we return to Colorado!

Thank you for coming so far to do our wedding photos. We certainly had a blast! We will be calling you again when we have some little ones join our family. Thanks again!



One year ago today, Emily Schmutz and I took a walk up the Vail Pass bike path to get some last-minute belly pictures. This picture, which is hands-down my favorite picture that's ever been taken of me, was one of the results. Thank you for capturing such a beautiful time in my life, dear friend. I can't believe this was a year ago. 

Incidentally, I saw this picture for the first time only a few minutes before I went into labor. I think it was good luck.

We loved working with Emily! She was fun, patient, calm, and creative! She captured some great moments and we haven't even seen all the pictures yet! Thanks for making this day so wonderful for us!


The Harrington Family

We had a fun family photo session and Emily really worked with us.... Keeping it fun, laughing along with us as our grand babies were crying. Hope she is still in Frisco for a repeat session in the future!!
My only negative is.... There are so many cute and well taken pictures that it's very hard to make choices!!

For anyone looking for a photographer, I highly recommend Emily Schmutz! I have used her twice for family pictures in 2013 and again in 2015 when my family was on vacation in Breckenridge, Colorado. We have a large extended family of 16, which can be quite challenging to shoot, but Emily beautifully captured the personality of our family in both traditional and candid portraits. She is very flexible and easy to work with. With our large group size we truly appreciated here "go with the flow" attitude as many of the men/boys in our group were not totally up for having their picture taken. The memories we have from our family vacations are beautifully resonated from these photography sessions, which are priceless memories; especially since the 2013 vacation celebrated my parent's 50th wedding anniversary. Thank you Emily from the Weihl, Ammann, Brylak and Rippa families. We appreciate your talent so much! Keep up the great work! We will be calling you on our next vacation to Colorado.

I just wanted to follow up and say thank you for such a great experience at our wedding last month! It was a great day and I appreciate all of your help and positive attitude during the rainy day.

We sent out several wedding pictures as holiday gifts, and I know I've told you this already, but we love the pictures. They are exactly what we were looking for, so thank you! We wish you the best, and would love to have you take more pictures at some point.
