About me

Click on the video below to watch some behind the scenes of how I photograph couples!


Las Vegas wedding photographer Emily Ku from Memory Lane Video – on Vimeo.

I have been calling this crazy town called Las Vegas my home since 2010. Prior to that, I was living in Boston, and before that, Washington, DC. I love it here so far, and that it is such a diverse city! I can drive to the Strip and eat dinner at a world-class restaurant, I can go hiking right outside of the city, and I can go snowboarding at Mt. Charleston, just 40 min from the city (yes and it gets real snow!).

My style

I’ve been shooting weddings since 2009 and I approach each wedding differently because each wedding is unique! Even if it’s the same location that I’ve shot multiple times, I always approach it with, “What can I do differently this time? What is going to wow my couples?” All my couples are different too, so I love brainstorming with my clients and creating a vision together that is meaningful to them. I really like to get to know my couples so they feel comfortable around me and in front of the camera.

10 things about me:
1.) I love playing soccer.
2.) When I was a kid, I wanted to be a comedian. Seinfeld and the Cosby Show were my favorite shows growing up.
3.) I probably watch more reality TV than I should.  I also love House of Cards, Breaking Bad, Scandal, and Mad Men.
4.) Las Vegas doesn’t really get that cold for boot weather but I love wearing them anyway.
5.) I love to turn up the radio and sing in the car.  This is a little embarrassing but half the time I don’t know the words.
6.) I have a fish tank with tetra fish, cute little algae eaters, and a couple of ghost shrimp.  Everyone gets along swimmingly.;)
7.) Eating is my favorite pastime. My Instagram feed confirms that.
8.) I have not one, but two sets of dimples on my cheeks.
9.) I have a weakness for shiny electronic toys.
10.) I can’t contain my excitement sometimes so I use a ton of exclamation marks! Yay!!:)
