Hey, I'm Emily


I'm stoked that you're here

Let me get right down to it- your marriage day will be one of the happiest days of your life. Whether you choose a traditional wedding or an intimate elopement, you deserve to have your memories captured authentically and artistically, to re-live til death do you part.


Not only do you deserve beautiful photos to look back on forever, but you deserve a laid back experience that allows you to be present with your loved ones and enjoy every moment of the BEST DAY EVER.

for laidback lovers

I'm Emily Cooksey- the face behind Rose Trade Co! Memorializing all the feels on your wedding day, in the DMV or across the globe. I'm here to capture the small in-between moments along with the big ones, telling your love story intentionally and artistically.

If you're able to laugh at yourself, love a good road trip, obsess over the perfect thrift find, or are a little TOO into charcuterie, we're gonna be good friends.
