I am looking for a in

Empiria Studios

You're newly engaged! Yay!! Are you feeling excited? Scared? Emotional? Those feelings are all an important part of this journey, and I would love to capture them all. If you shed a tear, that is just as important as the smile that follows. Out of all the emotions though, love is my favorite. Love is the greatest gift we can give each other.

Me in a nutshell: my family is from the east coast, I was born on the west coast, and raised in Minnesota. I now live near Minneapolis with my husband, and our cat and dog! I tend to be a bit goofy and laugh at simple jokes. I dance in the kitchen and sing to my animals. If i were a sitcom character, I'd be a mix of Leslie Knope and Tom Haverford, from Park and Recreation. And if you put on James Brown's "Get Up Offa That Thing", I will dance until the cows come home!

My name is Sammy and I am planning for my wedding (: I came across your page on IG and was wondering about your packages and what’s included with them. Please let me know! Sammy

I love your joy! You made us feel like the most special couple on the planet, and I think that passion for your job translated into the quality of our photos. I had several favorites, but I am always drawn to the ones with big smiles because happiness is always contagious, I think!

Where do I even begin? From the moment we met Athena, she immediately won us over. Her sweet personality and energetic vibe was just what we were looking for when it came to our wedding photographer. Not to mention, she showed us amazing examples of her work downtown Minneapolis. Athena was highly recommended by one of my contacts at The Marquette Hotel. She shot the professional photos of the renovated space on 50th floor of the IDS Center (Windows on Minnesota) - which was perfect bc that’s where we got married. The photos are stunning. All of our friends and family, particularly in the wedding party made so many comments about how great the photographers were. Also, I’ve received countless compliments raving about the photos. I had no idea someone could truly capture the entire day so beautifully. My family and I will be asking Athena for photography work in the near future and for years to come. If there’s one piece of advice I have for you soon-to-be-brides out there: reach out to Athena with Empiria Studios. You won’t be sorry. It was one of the best decisions I made throughout 2017.

Athena is such a fun person to work with! The moment we met with her at caribou, we knew she had to be our photographer. She works so well with the whole bridal party, everyone loved her! The work she does is purely amazing. Extremely easy to work with, responds to emails quickly, she goes above and beyond to make sure she gets the pictures you want. Highly recommend for any occasion!!

Empiria Studios was a dream to work with. We felt so comfortable with Athena and our day was stress free and went very smoothly. On top of that, Athena was willing to drive from Minneapolis to St Paul to make sure she caught moments of both myself and my husband getting ready. She is calm, collected and very professional. I have a large family (9 siblings!) and was so impressed with how Athena got to know many of them throughout the day, helped corral them all for photos, and managed to capture little moments when they weren't watching. For our family, pictures can be a huge and sometimes stressful/exhausting ordeal, but Athena's ability to keep everything moving quickly and efficiently made it so much easier -- we were actually ahead of schedule all day! Aside from that, she has a stellar personality and makes the day fun and exciting. By the end of the night my entire family was raving about her and asking for her contact information. She's extremely talented and I would highly recommend her, especially to anyone like me who appreciates natural light photography. Athena is great at it.
