about

Emily Keeney is a Seattle-based photographer.  Her journalistic style is to transform real moments of real people into heartfelt images. 


Hi, I'm Emily.

I'm a Seattle based photographer. I grew up somewhere between the cornfields and the city of Chicago and lived there until I was 24 and my husband and I packed up our lives and our cat and drove across the country to call the PNW home. My mom used to take me for car rides to short weekend trips listening to Van Morrison and U2 and those years created a yearning in my heart for adventure. I am trusting and loyal, a true Leo. I had a baby boy this year and my heart grew twice in size and it makes me even more sure that telling people’s love stories is what I want to do with my life. I’m glad you found me.

Some fun facts:

  • I can touch my nose with the tip of my tongue. I was extremely proud of this in grade school and showed it off to everyone.

  • I love Star Trek. I'm currently watching Voyager, but The Next Generation is my favorite. I have a bit of a crush on Patrick Stewart.

  • I love reading, and memoir and creative nonfiction are my favorites.

  • My favorite thing to do is to head out for a drive with good music and explore somewhere I've never been before. Bonus points if there's a quaint little town involved.

  • My husband and I have been together for 11 years. We met because he was my guitar teacher. I stopped playing but never stopped loving.

Emily’s pictures are amazing - she captured so many fun and special moments on our wedding day that are so great to look back at, especially since it’s such a busy day and it goes by so fast. She is awesome to work with - her calm presence was very much appreciated on a hectic day. She is also very detail oriented and gives great advice about what will look good in pictures.

First, and most important, our pictures turned out fantastic.

Working with Emily was amazing. She is passionate about what she does, and it shows in her photos. My (now wife) and I loved our time with Emily. She is lively and energetic and fosters an environment where it’s easy to let your natural self shine for her to capture.
