When her career in homeopathic drug mulery didn’t pan out (turns out there wasn’t much of a demand for it), Emily, a longtime reader of APW, started shooting weddings. Then with a gentle push from Meg (okay, it was a swift kick in the pants) she started Emily Takes Photos. Now, in addition to photography, she works with other sane wedding vendors to build thriving and practical businesses. Her likes include gypsy jazz, ranunculus, gouda, and lists. Her dislikes include eggs and coke at the same meal.
