Miss A Columnist

Christine Alhambra is originally from Annapolis, Maryland and recently made the move to Arlington, VA., working in DC. In Annapolis she worked as the managing editor at an international boating magazine, traveling, writing, and living aboard boats across the country. This new start included a job change and of course, new surroundings. Change is always exciting, but also requires getting comfortable outside of her normal comfort zone.

Emily says that usually for weddings, she gets requests from brides, but for the most part, the photographer decides what to photograph. “I’ve done it long enough now that I know what to look for and I am there and ready for most of the moments I like to get,” she says.

“It’s important to me that the couples who hire me trust me enough to get all of the important moments of the day so they do not have to worry about it. It’s my job to know what to do and to also be creative. The bride and groom should get lost in the excitement and happiness of their day and forget I am even there.”

Emily Clack is a wedding photographer based in Washington, D.C. and has been documenting weddings for the past 3 years. After becoming inspired by another wedding photographer’s work, she decided to go back to school to learn digital photography and follow her new passion. Emily has a photojournalistic style when it comes to capturing weddings and enjoys telling each couple’s story through beautiful imagery.
