Lou Emery Photography 

About Me


I began my career as a professional freelance photographer in Connecticut for the award-winning Milford Citizen newspaper during my high school years. As weekend photo correspondent, I had the opportunity to cover many assignments from both a local and national perspective.  Auto accidents, fires, elections, sporting events and celebrity profiles are some of the subjects covered in the best and worst of weather.  From City Hall to the White House, I have shot, gathered information, and developed film for several publications, inaugural balls, political campaigns, banquets, and charity events. I have covered a variety of happenings and can make sure your event is recorded memorably and reliably.
