I’m Emily Reiter, the founder of Anna Delores Photography and an educator for wedding professionals who want to grow their businesses with elevated styling skills, connections with wedding vendors and publications, and entrepreneurial savvy to maximize long-term success.
Former careers in visual merchandising and a business startup, plus a summer studying marketing in Paris (ooh la la!) have provided me with a unique skill set ideal for flourishing as a creative entrepreneur, and I’m passionate about sharing what I’ve learned in nine years of business with other wedding professionals. Whether through in-person workshops, online courses, or one-on-one mentoring, I love to lead other photographers to grow thriving businesses in the wedding industry.
My vision for success for other wedding photographers is excellence in both the aesthetic details AND business acumen in order to achieve a healthy, thriving business. My focus is on empowering wedding photographers to be good at EVERY piece of their business and not just portraiture. Telling a well-rounded story of the full wedding celebration AND having your act together behind the scenes so your business is legit are my goals for every photographer taking my courses or working with me one on one.
If your name is Emily, who is “Anna Delores”?
I’m so glad you asked!
Anna Delores Photography is named after my paternal grandmother and maternal great-grandmother.
Yes, I get called “Anna” all the time, and no, I don’t mind!
Expertise + Offerings
Wedding styling + details
The Wedding Styling Playbook was developed as an all-inclusive guide for photographers and other wedding pros to elevate their styling skills.
Modules focus on flat lay styling, reception details, and collaborating with vendors to reinforce the importance of details when it comes to telling a couple’s wedding day story.
Submissions + publications
Submitting images for publication online and in print is a powerful technique for building your wedding business!
Wedding Submissions 101 gives the low-down on the impact publication can have for your business; I also offer one-on-one consulting for refining submissions and getting featured.
Managing a team
To help wedding professionals reach their full potential, I specialize in sharing and showing the life-changing benefits of hiring a team, outsourcing, and automating tasks.
I’ve managed a team of associates since 2014 and run a profitable wedding studio of four photographers covering over 50 celebrations every year.
Keeping it legit
I grew up as a self-proclaimed teacher’s pet, so of COURSE I’m a stickler for the rules! Creative business owners can download a free self-audit checklist to ensure their operation is totally legit (and how to fix it if it’s not).
Ensure legal compliance, masterful client communication, and the magic of managing a business you LOVE.

The hype is real.
Don’t just take my word for it — here’s what other wedding pros have to say!
I count myself as incredibly lucky to have had Anna Delores Photography shoot some of our work — I have never seen such beautiful styling and attention to detail. As a stationer who prides herself on creating keepsakes for clients, I am delighted by the useful knowledge on how to beautifully capture those keepsakes.

There are a lot of courses out there and so many are quite heavy on the ‘fluff,’ but Emily offers real, actionable, applicable knowledge for new and seasoned photographers alike. Hers is a very thoughtful, meaningful, and holistic approach to the documentation of a wedding day and it’s an approach that resonates with her clients and fellow vendors.”

I’ve been shooting weddings for about eight years now but I am working to take my business to the next level. I feel like I have a pretty good clientele and my name’s already out there, I just really wanted to take it up a notch, and I knew that Emily would really teach me that. And she did! – she brought it.

The Inner Mentorship gave me the one-on-one attention I needed to ask my personal questions and have Emily’s expert eyes on my work. She selected photos for publication from my galleries, led me through feedback on each gallery, and shed light on blind spots I had in my work. I’m now able to tell a better story for my clients!
