Love. Details. Emotions. Fun.


We capture it all. Elders Ridge Photography by Emily Smith is a western PA wedding photographer offering wedding photography, portrait photography, and wedding films in Indiana County, Westmoreland County, Allegheny County, Butler County, Armstrong County, Washington County, Beaver County, and pretty much anywhere else in the state and/or planet. Our wedding photography has been described as unique, personalized, emotional, and fun. Use the links above to see our work and let the pictures speak for themselves.

I would highly recommend Elders Ridge Photography to anyone planning a wedding (or in need of any pictures actually)! From the beginning Emily was great to work with and really tried to get to know us and what we wanted! She was amazing and our pictures turned out absolutely beautiful. Almost a year later and people still talk about how she captured the day so perfectly. Guests also noticed her genuine and fun energy. My husband & I both aren’t very comfortable in front of the camera but Emily made us feel soo at ease and had us laughing and relaxing in no time. I cannot recommend Elders Ridge Photography enough!!

Emily was an outstanding photographer. She captured all of the moments of our wedding day that you would want and more. She is easy to talk to and collaborate your visions with. Emily went through the woods and down into a stream to capture some pictures of the wedding party! Our pictures are great, and we have received a lot of compliments on them. As part of our package with Emily she made us a custom coffee photo book album, it is beautiful. I am very pleased and satisfied with our wedding day photos. I would recommend Elder’s Ridge Photography! Thank you Emily for all of your work and providing us with many pictures of the memorable moments from the big day.
