about us | freehearted film co | tampa wedding photo and video for free spirited lovers

We both grew up in the Northeast, but it's only been a matter of time since we made the Northwest our home. Here's a lil bit about us humans!

Emily: Discovered I have ADHD, as an adult, which was wild. It set me free to love myself and now I just hope to help everyone else find the same self-acceptance. I studied fine art in college, and thus my love of oil painting was born. I once wrote a 12 page research paper about Wes Anderson's films and I recently discovered I like some anime. I'm less than patiently waiting for Animal Crossing to be released on the Switch (of course I preordered it). I would foster/adopt all of the kittens in the world if I could. I will probably forever be hopeless addicted to coffee. In my spare time you probably can't find me because I'm on the side of a mountain somewhere with no cell signal.

Atlas: I'm your resident Ben Wyatt, literally - I do all the numbers for Freehearted. Definitely on that #gymlife but I ain’t That Guy.™ I'll definitely talk your ear off about my favorite places across America though (including my famous 8 week roadtrip). I have a lifelong dream of petting every dog on earth, and have a scale for each one that ranges from Yip to Arf to Boof. Show me your dog - I will pet it and inevitably tell you where it falls on this scale and why. I have a habit of what Emily calls "too many dad jokes," as if that's a thing. One time a car didn't share the road with me and I bombed off my longboard, and now I have a chipped tooth to prove the story.

We fell into portraiture and videography because there is something purely ethereal and magical about the practice of documenting the simple complexity of people. To freeze a moment in time, to capture an emotion, to show a side the world might not otherwise see? This is our Passion, and we're so thrilled to create something with you!

What Our Couples Have to Say

“Emily was such a joy to work with for our wedding photos. She really listens to her clients for what kind of memories they want captured on their special day—on which she delivers. She makes thoughtful suggestions and sees potential compositions that most photographers would overlook. Her photos truly captured the feel of our wedding—we get so many compliments on them! And, Emily took photos of our guests—many of whom traveled from out of town—which was truly appreciated! These were great to share with friends and family as well. Emily has a great approach with people and is patient with families/guests—which is important on your wedding day! She was very accommodating and made the dreaded process of rallying our families together so much less stressful. Emily’s perspective is unique and artistic. Her skills, paired with her calm personality, make her a fantastic photographer. Her photos induced tears—the good kind—and we can’t stop looking at them. We cannot recommend her enough. ” – Terry Wilkerson
“We didn’t initially plan to do videography for our wedding, but I’m so glad we did because Atlas was absolutely wonderful. Our wedding video brings happy tears to my eyes every time I watch it, even a year later. He was totally professional, answered any and all emails and questions promptly, and was just a blast to hang out with on our wedding day! I could not recommend his services enough!” – Liz Weden “Atlas turned our vision for our wedding video into a reality. He went above and beyond to add an extra camera for our wedding to capture additional moments that we will cherish forever. Atlas and his crew were extremely professional and his services were worth every penny. I still get compliments on just how amazing our highlight reel turned out. Highly recommend!” – Kevanne Hughes
