My name is Rebecca Emily, and thank you again for taking a moment to explore my website and art. I'm currently located in Corvallis, Oregon, but travel all throughout the Pacific Northwest for clients and creative projects. I started my business in 2020, but have been shooting digitally since 2016. I specialize in editorial photography and bring this aspect to all forms of my work.
Although I've spent most of my life here in the Willamette Valley, I like to think that my years of growing up in Arizona have made me more appreciative and observant of the beauty that Oregon has to offer. Incorporating nature into my shoots has always been an important aspect to me. Additionally, I would describe my work as spacious, feminine, and honest.
I often get asked why I pursued photography, and my usual response is a ramble about always having had a camera around as a child and deciding to take it more seriously later in my twenties. However, the real answer is rather a cliche. You know the old adages, "A picture is worth a thousand words" and "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder?" I suppose little me took those ideas to heart. I believe photography allows us to speak where words fail. It is a fascinating and visceral way to learn about the world around us as it lets us step into another's reality or dreams, past or present. Both creating and observing it fulfill my desire to learn, explore, find community, and share through pictures what can't always be expressed with words.
As for my day-to-day life outside of photography, it consists of farmer's market bouquets, five different language learning apps, a pole instructor who laughs with me when I fall, a menagerie of candles I never actually burn, foodie trips with friends, messy granny square blankets, late night talks with my parents, and - of course - my lovely cat, Charlie.
“"Rebecca and I have worked together a handful of times and each time I'm blown away by her talent behind the camera! She understands how to use light and capture the perfect angle. She is also extremely helpful with ideas and posing! Rebecca is professional and makes you feel at ease during your shoot! I highly recommend her and am positive when you receive your photos back you will be ecstatic you selected her for your photography needs."”
