Embodied Celebration Experiences
On a mission to cultivate a lifestyle of celebration, we’re a team of photographers with over 10 years of experience each, along with our founder and CEO Emmy Gaines, a certified yoga instructor who also runs Celebrate Again Yoga. We believe that all of life deserves celebration, the dull moments, the grand moments and everything in between.
We get that life is sometimes overwhelming, amazing and a magical experience all at once. We exist to provide you with life changing experiences that help you, not just know, but rather, embody celebration.
We provide life changing experiences through our elopement photography experience in Colorado, Oregon couples photography experiences, creative process branding photography, transformational personal experiences through Celebrate Again Yoga, and our developing nonprofit to sponsor the underprivileged to access our high class experiences.
We get that life is too short to just know the possibilities, we want you to live them.
Are you ready to Celebrate Again?
Founder, Photographer & Yoga Teacher
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 have this insatiable desire to live life to the fullest but not just know how to, actually do it, which is what Celebrate Again is all about, giving you embodied celebration experiences. Whether I’m your Oregon photographer or guide as a yoga instructor my goal is always to lead you deeper into connection with yourself or your partner, experiencing a level of affection that transforms you to being able to show up to all of life with your best.
You may notice I don’t photograph anything past 4 hours and have an assistant with me. 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 make Celebrate Again not only a business but also a nonprofit.
In my free time you’ll find me exploring the PNW with my husband and daughter, practicing yoga, dancing, reading spiritual books, snuggling my Maltese dog, and recipe creating for my crazy paleo/vegan diet.

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:
We’ll get to know you, your relationship, and what celebrating your love story and anniversary or elopement means to you. Tell us your desires, ideas, some of your story together as a couple so we can help craft an unforgettable day together celebrating your wedding or anniversary but more importantly documenting your love.
2. Reserve your date:
All we need to know is when you’d like to celebrate your elopement or anniversary. We also need a general idea of where you’d like to go (Colorado, Oregon, California, Hawaii, Alaska, Charleston, etc). 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 elopement or anniversary experience:
Through our process we’ll get to know you and your story and how to help you curate your ideal celebration. We will help you narrow down where to go and the best time of day to be there. Then we will help narrow down a one or two day experience that has the perfect formula of celebration. We’ll create a list of customized locations, activities and possible vendor recommendations for your celebration. 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 we document your day:
Let’s celebrate! We 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. Then you’ll receive a slideshow to get a deeper dive sneak peek into your celebration. Finally 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. We give back
We don’t just want these anniversary celebrations to be reserved for people with the financial means to enjoy such an extravagant beautiful commemorative day. We 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…
“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
THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT WE’RE HERE TO CHANGE
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.
DRAW YOU DEEPER TOGETHER
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.

THEY CAPTURED THE JOY AND LOVE BEHIND US AS A COUPLE…
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. 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!
