Award winning published WEDDING photographer


You won't appreciate how valuable a photograph is until it's all you have left.
A birth certificate shows you were born.
A death certificate shows you died.
Photographs show you lived.

You're a 405 Brides wedding couple if you:


My name is Emily Avila, an Oklahoma Wedding Photographer, and I am the founder of 405 Brides Photography. I found a passion for photography when I worked years ago for a fashion studio. I then apprenticed under a professional who was a wedding photographer in Oklahoma. He taught me the ins and out of weddings and it was a blast! It was then I knew I wanted to pursue my love for weddings. If you are looking for an Oklahoma Wedding Photographer or a wedding photographer for wherever you are in the world, I'd love to hear from you!

I could not have asked for a better photographer. Emily and Shar were top notch in their demeanor and skills. My husband and I could not be happier. As stressed as I was, Emily was there to calm me down and improvise. We were beyond excited when we saw our album and prints. We had to improvise on the location as my original location was muddy due to recent rain. With her improvising in locations, we ended up with some AMAZING photos that we will cherish for the rest our lives. Please do not hesitate to decide on using Emily for your wedding!

We hired Emily to shoot our wedding because we had heard great things about her photography. Her website was full of beautiful photos. When we contacted her, she was very friendly, accommodating, and gave us a great rate. On our big day, she showed up early and made my husband and me completely comfortable and even suggested great poses for us and for our guests. The turnaround was very quick afterwards, and we were blown away by all the great photos. The day seemed to be a blur for me because of my emotions, but when I saw the photos I realized how much fun I had sharing my big day with all my family and friends. I would definitely recommend Emily to others. She's very professional and warm and gave us photographic memories that we will cherish forever.
