“Emily has an extremely professional demeanor with an amazing eye for candid and artistic shots. We use her shots across all social media platforms as well as in prints and professional networking media. Her work is amazing because it captures the organic feel of our beer and brew pub and is able to visually communicate our story to our guests.”

“Emily is my go-to gal for advertising my wedding business. She adds the most delicate touches to anything I ask for. Emily designed my business cards and they are beyond gorgeous! I needed something that would stand out as there are so many beautiful places to tie the knot in the Black Hills. Most businesses succeed by keeping the customer happy, but it’s also important to grab their attention. Emily is there when I need an artistic point-of-view!”

“I can’t even begin to describe how truly amazing Emily is! Throughout the whole process working with her, she has been kind, creative, and generous. Emily has created bridal shower invitations, bridal shower games, save the dates, a wedding invitation suite, a thank you sign, bathroom basket signs, and reception place cards for me. She also so beautifully wrote out my guest addresses in calligraphy. For my wedding invitation suite, I was so indecisive – Emily didn’t stop creating until it was exactly what I had envisioned. I have received so many compliments on every single piece that Emily has done for me. Throughout my time working with her, she has helped me create the wedding of my dreams, I can’t thank her enough. I highly recommend Emily to others who are planning their wedding. She does everything to make sure it is exactly what you want. Emily has been super professional throughout this journey, and I can’t wait to work with her in the future.”

“Ordering stationery for a wedding can be overwhelming and confusing. There are so many kinds of paper, pricing is all over the place, foil no foil, who knows!? Emily helped guide me every step of the way. She took my ideas and kept my needs in mind and gave me the best suggestions, including helping me stick to a budget (which all Brides know is hard to do)!

I loved the process so much that when it came to ordering invitations, I didn’t hesitate to reach out to her to turn Dream #2 into a reality! We have had so many friends and family tell us how much they LOVE our save the dates. I smile every time and I cannot thank Emily enough!”

“Emily is amazing. She did everything for my wedding: engagement photography, save the dates, bridal shower invites, programs, signs, wedding photography AND videography, and lastly thank you cards.

As an unartistic bride I was so thankful to have someone with vision to help me make my wedding complete. I gave Emily vague descriptions of what I was thinking of and it was so spectacular to see more than I could imagine come to life.

Her photography is completely breathtaking and captured the day perfectly. Our engagement photos were gorgeous and the shoot was so much fun. Myself and my husband are not particularly fond of being in front of cameras but Emily has this amazing demeanor that can make anyone feel comfortable making the results look so much more genuine. It seems that all Emily’s work drips with genuine saturated life.   The video of my wedding lets me relive the day and the experience with my friends and family over and over.

Working with Emily was so easy. The results were amazinf but it was also super reasonably priced. I have recommended working with Emily to all my friends and I would recommend it to any one.”

“Emily created the perfect invitation for my wedding! She customized the design and made it unique, elegant, and exactly what I wanted. Emily worked professionally and promptly to provide me with samples, designs and anything else I needed. I was able to get a proof of the invitation first and then received the final invitations very quickly after. I couldn’t be more pleased with the invitations and am so thankful for Emily’s hard work!”

“Working with Emily for our save the dates and wedding invitations was a treat! Her work is unlike anything else and her creative abilities shined throughout our design. She took a lot of weight off our shoulders during all the wedding planning and was very easy to work with. We changed our minds on several decisions throughout the whole process and Emily was always willing to make changes for us.  She gave us several different design options in a very short amount of time and had great prices! And to top it all off, she even included the cutest handmade magnet in the package with our invites. Overall, we loved working with D.D.E. Aesthetics and will go to her first with any future projects we have!”

“Working with Emily in any capacity has always been a pleasure, but I was especially impressed when she did a photo shoot for me involving some of my pottery. Her demeanor is, of course, kind and caring, but her professionalism, timeliness, and overall quality of work was astounding. I was looking for someone who could both photograph my work while simultaneously somehow capture the spirit of ‘me,’ and I was not disappointed. I feel that the photos I received were a true expression of my art and therefore myself, and for that I am beyond grateful and cannot wait to hire her again.”

“I had the pleasure of working with Emily for my sister’s bridal shower and bachelorette invitations. I couldn’t have asked for anything more. She was very easy to work with and was always ensuring that I was getting exactly what I wanted. She always had a couple of different options when I was unsure about what I was looking for. She was very quick and responsive. I would recommend her to anyone looking for something creative – you won’t be left disappointed with her work. I plan to use her in the future!”

“Emily’s impressive artistic abilities are clear in the many sets of invitations she has created for me! She flawlessly designed my wedding, bridal shower, bachelorette party, gender reveal and baby shower invitations. Emily not only designed my invitations but also doubled as my photographer! She is accommodating, punctual, professional, and easy to work with and I can easily say that I am a customer for life!”

“From start to finish, Emily was incredible to work with. I contacted her to help us create our Save the Date, wedding invitation suite and various other paper products for our wedding. To start I sent her three or so different things I saw on Pinterest that I liked. Emily then came back to me with an original design for each project that incorporated all the different ideas that I liked – in an even better way than I could have imagined. She was so patient and willing to make as many revisions as we needed to make sure the product was exactly right. She also was very conscious of our budget and was always willing to give us a few options cost-wise.

I will continue to go to Emily for every invitation or paper project in the future and recommend her to anyone who wants a personal and amazing experience!”
