Hey, I'm Emily. I like to make things super sweet & simple. If you are here you hopefully are in love with my authentic, adventurous, and moody style. I love to capture real moments, so you can just relax and be yourself! When I don't have a camera in my hand you will find me playing baseball with my son, studying for my Bachelors in Criminal Justice, or spending time at the beach with my family. My favorite things are plants, online shopping, worship at church, and beach time of course.

“If I had one word to describe Bella Navi Photography : outstanding. My husband and I were looking for a photographer last minute because our original photographer CANCELED! (One of my worst fears for the wedding day) I was referred to Emily and I could not be happier that she had availability!! Her photography style, price, and genuine personality was exactly what we were looking for to capture our wedding day. Bella Navi Photography was truly a blessing for us. Not only did Emily capture amazing photograph”

“From the start Emily was so helpful, she took time to get to know us and our story. She was very flexible when planning the whole engagement session and elopement. When meeting Emily for the first time at our elopement, she made us feel like life long friends rather than clients, everything went so smoothly and I could not have asked for better experience. Our pictures turned out amazing, everyone we show them to is in awe and always asks who our photographer was. I highly recommend Emily for any photograph”

The name "Bella Navi" means Beautiful Vessels in Italian. Jeremiah 18:1-12 talks about us being vessels, molded and crafted in the Potters hand. These words remind me daily of how important it is to be willing to be molded and crafted into someone beautiful that the Lord can use in this world. We are all beautiful vessels, waiting to be filled with the Lords love and goodness, to overflow into the lives of those around us.

One of my favorite songs is, "Broken Vessels" by Hillsong Worship and that had an influence on my name choice as well.
