About Me

My couples are looking for an effortless elegance–an unfussy luxury experience on their wedding days. They value fashion, fun, and the people present on their day. A fine art approach, without sacrificing authenticity.


Your photos are more than just images; they’re a reflection of your unique story and spirit.

I approach each project as a genuine collaboration, immersing myself in understanding who you are and capturing moments that resonate with your essence, beautifully and authentically.

Drawing from a blend of photojournalistic, cinematic, editorial, and creative styles, I craft images that tell your story with depth and emotion.

Our journey together yields timeless treasures, allowing you to revisit cherished memories decades from now. With gentle guidance and genuine rapport, I ensure you feel relaxed and natural in front of the camera, whether you’re embracing dynamic movement or savoring quiet moments of joy, and caputring all the in-between moments and micro stories on your wedding day.

Together, we’ll create a tapestry of images that evoke the sensations and emotions of the moment—whether it’s the warmth of the sun on your skin, the feel of your family members group hug on your wedding day, tang of salty sea air, or the fragrance of your wedding day blooms.


Emily Choy epitomizes the essence of destination wedding photography, calling Hawaii and Europe her home bases while embarking on journeys across continents to immortalize the essence of wedding days.

Her craft is fueled by a profound appreciation for authentic human connections, the nuanced intricacies that render each couple and their special day truly unparalleled. With an exquisite blend of documentary-style photography amidst the opulence of luxury weddings, Emily seamlessly merges influences from fine art and editorial realms with a photojournalistic flair, weaving together narratives that capture the entirety of the occasion.

Her approach is characterized by a serene and composed demeanor, infusing wedding days with a tranquil ambiance. Emily delights in uncovering and magnifying the subtle micro-moments of joy – a cheeky kiss, a soft hand hold, a forgotten pair of shoes – that often otherwise may go unnoticed. Her couples treasure the significance of their loved ones’ presence, the holistic experience, sartorial elegance, and pure fun.

Through her lens, Emily crafts timeless, emotive, and cinematic masterpieces that resonate with romance and evoke a profound sense of nostalgia.

When she is not capturing love stories, she is enjoying her family-her husband, three children, and mini farm-dogs, chickens, ducks, fish, and turtle.
