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 15 year old kitty (he's going to live longer than me), 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? 

I have been working in the wedding industry for six years, and have started to work in the business branding/custom content field in the last two.  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.  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.


In addition to a knack for planning, I studied graphic design during my undergrad and have a Masters Degree in Business Administration, which makes me unique from other planners in my area.  I have the ability to design custom items for your event to seamlessly maintain your theme, creating an event that is completely unique to you.  As a photographer, I have the ability to not only design and create an aesthetically pleasing event for you and your guests, but I also know what will look the best in your wedding photos, so that you can relive and enjoy the day for years to come. As a designer, I can create customs designs, signs, business content, logos and artwork to suit any need.

My packages vary and are customizable, as each client I work with is different, with varying needs.  Feel free to email me with any questions - I love to meet for coffee and chat with new people!

 To me, Photography is so much more than capturing a moment on film.  I am all about real life moments.  I love the type of photography that evokes raw emotions and displays one's true self." 

Sharing in a client's vision of their dream wedding, or picture-perfect special event, and bringing to life everything they envisioned for their day is a task so much more rewarding than I ever imagined."


Associate Coordinator

Kinzie is a seasoned wedding planner, starting her career planning weddings for Blue Boot Events in Austin Texas.  Describing herself as a total hopeless romantic, Kinzie has always been drawn to the wedding industry and is so excited to continue working on weddings back in her hometown.

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 :)
