EMP Studios » Decatur, Alabama Premier Photographer

Meet the Crew

well hello. we are so excited for you to meet our team.

emily & brandon mcmurry. the photographers.

2EMP Studios was opened (originally Emily McMurry Photography) in late 2009.  A dream that I (Emily) never expected would come true. Brandon joined the team in the fall of 2011 and hasn’t looked back since.  We love being able to work together and do what God created us to do!

We are so blessed to do what we love every. single. day. Our goal is to capture life for you.  To freeze a moment in time that you can always remember.  We want to create an experience for you that is more than just having your photo taken.  Whether you are a pre-teen, senior in high school, brand new family or a growing one, we want you to have BLAST and feel and look great while you’re at it!

Pictures can be and should be something fun to look forward to.  We know it isn’t always easy to be in front of the camera, so we’ll help make it easier! Our biggest goal is to reflect who YOU are.  Not a set that we have build or a location we have chosen, but your style, personalities, and love for each other!

the hair and makeup artist.  

Most of our sessions include hair and makeup (and you can add hair and makeup to ANY session!)  These 2 ladies are fabulous at what they do and will leave you feeling like a rockstar!!

Hair and makeup have been my passion since I was a little girl playing dress up in my mom’s closet! I love nothing more than helping teenagers and women see themselves in a new way through having their hair and makeup done for special events in their life! With 9 years of experience I would love to get to know you and make you feel like the royalist you are during your makeover session!
