Based in Rochester, New York, Emily Stoker is the founder of ECS Scenes, LLC, a freelance photography business specializing in portraits and special events.

She graduated from SUNY Fredonia in 2023 with her B.A. in Visual Arts and New Media, Summa Cum Laude with a concentration in Film and Video Arts.

She has been interested in photography since she was ten years old when she was gifted an underwater Kodak camera but did not begin to explore this passion seriously until her sophomore year of college.

"Photography for me is the realization of life's fragility. Being a part of someone's special moment, offering a permanent token of a memory, of a person, or a stage in life that's fleeting with time." –Emily
