I'm Emily and I am the owner of Emily Summer Studios - a photography, design and event planning company based in Missoula, Montana, but travel basically anywhere my clients bring me (like seriously, anywhere). Most days you can find me in my home office drafting floor plans, editing photo albums, designing custom brand content, creating wedding timelines or any of the other 7,284,729 things I tend to get myself into with the company of my bulldog and teacup Pomeranian. I am a busy bee by nature, and constantly looking for new ways to grow and love learning new things. I am happiest when my plate is full....metaphorically and literally, because I mean, a girl's gotta eat right?
Working in a creative field has been something I knew I was destined for from the time I was a little girl and I have always loved coordinating events and activities. I have been working in the wedding industry for six years and it has been a complete dream. Taking something that begins as simply a vision or dream and making it a reality for my clients is something that brings me the greatest satisfaction. I work tirelessly to meet the needs of clients and create the perfect customized event, whether that's through the eyes of a camera lens, custom designs or flawless planning.

"Emily did an AMAZING job with my wedding, down to the very last detail. Emily has a natural way of making people feel relaxed, calmed and assured that everything will be taken care of from the moment you hire her. She was also always available to answer little questions and to offer support whenever I felt stressed. I also loved that she took the time to ask about our vision for the wedding day and worked tirelessly to create it. My day was perfect and I would highly recommend her services to any and every bride grooms! I can't say enough good things"
"We hired Emily as our day of coordinator and she was the best money we spent on anything related to the wedding. She was lovely to work with and made it so we actually got enjoy the wedding instead of running around and trying to handle all the last minute things that always come up. She handled all the vendors, helped set up flowers, taped down table cloths because of unexpected wind and kept everything on schedule. She also cleaned up the entire dining room after dinner so the next day when we came back to break everything down, we had very little to do, which was such a relief. Hire her, you will not regret it!"

"Emily sure helped put us at ease during the entirety of our wedding photography planning and also on the day of. She is very professional and kind. I am extremely pleased with how the finished photo package turned out! So many memories captured just the way that my husband and I had hoped they would be. I recommend Emily Summer for engagement or wedding photos. Thanks Emily!"
