Celebrate Again
More Than A Photographer

True or false life is what you make it. More than a photographer, I am your connection experiential guides. With my 12 years of working as a photographer and with couples I believe that I know how to help couples experience genuine connection beyond just having their photo taken.

This is what I’m here for: I don’t want you to hire me as another photographer to just take your photos but as a guide to help you experience celebration and connection.

Think of me more as your guide than as your photographer.

Lumalia (Emmy) With Celebrate Again

“There is nothing
prettier in the
whole wide world
than a girl
in love
with every breath she takes.” ― Atticus Poetry, Love Her Wild

meet us


Can I tell you a secret? I have this determined side of me that is bent on making everything better. I am a problem solver extraordinaire. If my parents had their way I would have been an engineer and while figuring out how things work has always been fascinating that wasn’t enough for me.  I’ve been fascinated with the human connection since I was a little girl. Always people watching and learning by observation. Running around with a cheesy smile plastered on my face at all times, it was a strange habit of mine to try to make strangers smile.
In the end all I ever want to do is help people feel good inside and out. Celebrate Again has been a dream of mine for half a decade now. I love helping couples like you feel connected in front of my camera but more than that I love helping you experience time together that changes you. Time together that propels you into deeper connections with yourself, each other and the world around you. While I wear the hat of the main guide and photographer I also love to teach yoga, and if you’re a fan too I love to incorporate a custom made class in your couples photography experience.
You may notice I don’t photograph anything past 4 hours, have an assistant with me and take limited bookings per year. Chronic illnesses became a part of my life story in 2016. I have some major limitations but this has only propelled me to reach more people. To give back to those struggling and share more of my story. In my free time you’ll find me adventuring with my family, practicing yoga, having regular dance parties, reading spiritual books, snuggling my maltese dog, recipe creating for my crazy paleo/vegan diet and crafting to satisfy DIY addiction.

Follow along on our  self care yoga membership.

envision this

Envision putting together all the best experiences you’ve ever had into one day, top it off with connection to your beloved and we’d call that a perfect day. 

This is exactly why we’re here, to guide you into a day that breaks up the monotony of life, gives you a deep dive into connection while celebrating your relationship. 

Giving your permission to let go of traditions to live out your unique life story.

We don’t want it to end there, with your photos you get to look back and relive those moments WHILE we get to give back.

Let’s Celebrate Being Alive

Let’s celebrate connection.

Let’s celebrate your story.

Let’s celebrate again and again.

Life is too short not to celebrate every single day.

Life is not the amount of breaths you take, its the moments that take your breath away.

1. Chat about your ideal celebration day:

I’ll get to know you, your relationship, and what celebrating your love story and anniversary means to you. Tell us your desires, ideas, some of your story together as a couple so we can help craft an unforgettable experience together but more importantly documenting your love.

2. Reserve your date:

I only need to know is when you’d like to celebrate your relationship. I also need a general idea of where you’d like to go (Oregon Coast, Alpine Lake in Oregon, Waterfalls in Oregon, Hawaii). Don’t worry if you aren’t sure exactly where you’d like to go, we have a lot of resources and tools to help you decide!

3. Let’s create your unique experience:

Through my process I’ll get to know you and your story and how to help you curate your ideal connection experience. I will help you narrow down where to go and the best time of day to be there. Then we will help narrow down an experience. We’ll create a list of customized locations, activities and possible vendor recommendations for your connection experience. You just need to pick your favorite locations, activities, book your final travel arrangements and vendors, and pick out what clothes to wear!

4. Have one of the best days of your life while I document and lead you through connection:
Let’s celebrate! I come alongside you on your celebration documenting your ceremony if you’re eloping, your fun adventures and wrapping up your ideal day soaking in a beautiful location while we lead you in a time of connection.
5. Enjoy the beautiful memories to leave as your legacy of love

The moment you get back to regular life you’ll receive sneak peaks to help take you back to your unforgettable day together. Next you’ll receive your full gallery of images that tell the story of your love, to take you back to moments of reconnection that spark a deeper connection. Keep these photos forever as a way to reconnect and to share your legacy of love with your family.

6. I give back
I don’t just want these anniversary celebrations to be reserved for people with the financial means to enjoy such an extravagant beautiful commemorative day. I want all relationships especially those in the service of others with lower incomes, disabilities, or in serviced based careers without the means to have an opportunity to celebrate again too.

She made us us feel at ease…
“Lumalia Emmy is a wonderful photographer! She did anniversary photos for us in a beautiful mountain park outside of Denver, Colorado. She did a great job of making us feel at ease and we had so much fun during the process! I loved the photos that we ended up with; they really captured the moment. They will be something we can look back at for many years to come.” – Daniel

We want to create a culture that celebrates relationships every single day, and especially on our wedding days and anniversaries.


I want to create a space for couples who want to celebrate their love, but for whatever reason haven’t been able to have that grand celebration.


I want to create a day that is unforgettable.


I want to create a day that stirs you deeper into an affection that then projects you into a love so profound and beautiful it cannot help but radiate to the world around you.

Brittany, with Celebrate Again did such an amazing job capturing our photos! My favorite part was how she captured the joy and love behind us as a couple and surrounding the whole day. She was great at capturing the perfect light to create beautiful photos. I’d highly recommend her to anyone. Lumalia Emmy and Brittany were all a joy to work with, proactive in their communication, and took time to get to know us as a couple. A great photographer was number one on my list and Celebrate Again did not disappoint. We’ll be enjoying these photos for years to come!
