My name is Micah Emily and I am the creative behind & Two Were Tamed. I am a type 7 and if you know what that means then you can imagine me giving you jazz hands right now and laughing with you about it. I was born and raised the "wild & free" middle child of my tightly knit family. Growing up was farm life in small town Western Oklahoma; I graduated with a shocking 26 people. I moved to Colorado to be a ski bum for a bit and at 23 I took mud season to hitch hike across the U.S. with my best girlfriend. I had had a camera in my hands since high school but this is when I first fell in love with the documentary side of photography. My strength is in the ability to make other humans feel comfortable and known. My weakness, cocoa covered cashews. I like to wake up at dawn to run before the world awakens from its slumber, even though I can’t always pry my eyes open and never ever without coffee; morning joe was a ritual in my family and it remains, deeply ingrained within my soul.
I do this life thing with the sweetest husky pup named Kyote Elaine. She is a spunky sled dog who loves the outdoors and occasionally tearing apart the trash when I’m not home. Exploring the beautiful rugged places that surround us all fills my being. I love to camp, to run, to hike. I also love quiet evenings indoors, re-watching old Star Trek episodes, and forcing Kyote to cuddle with me. She's literally the most energetic, independent, and stubborn pup. Reminds me a bit of myself.
Greatest of all time list:
Vegan Tex-Mex + swing dancing in Austin, Revive Campfire Kombucha, Drive with Ryan Gosling (I think the cinematography and the story are unreal!), also Wes Anderson Films, hitch hiking across the country, backpacking through Yosemite, breakfast tacos and beer while relaxing in Sykes Hot Springs, Dodgers baseball at Dodgers Stadium, Oklahoma thunderstorms during sunset, Sweet Cow mint chocolate chip ice cream, Crema Coffee in the Rino district of Denver, Sunday afternoons at my grandmas, and lastly my dad serenading our family with his guitar and fiddle before bed - I might have been the real Laura Ingalls Wilder.
The photos I capture are hand chosen, edited, and delivered by me. This means, I do not outsource any part of the creative process but personally work with your photographs from start to finish; carefully piecing together the unique story of your love. I believe as a wedding photographer that my job is not simply to photograph you, but to work alongside you, to truly tell your story from your perspective, not mine. I promise to invest in you and your adventure, to document your unique story as if it were my own.
