My husband and I were planning a wedding in Clearwater, FL while he was in Louisiana and I was in the UK up until a month before the wedding - things got pretty stressful... I had been searching for a wedding photographer for months and months, but I just could not find a photographer that could truly capture the style of wedding pictures I had imagined in my mind. I was just about to give up when I came across Emily & Co - just 3 months before my wedding! I am so glad I did!! From the initial “meeting” over Skype ,to the day of the wedding Emily has just been phenomenal! As an international bride I had 101 questions for Emily so I was constantly emailing Emily, she was always so quick to reply and put me at ease. On the day of the wedding Emily could not have been more professional, yet so friendly. The way that Emily and her team laughed and joked with all of us made me so happy and put us all at ease. What I loved most about Emily & Co is that they build real relationships with their couples and genuinely care about each wedding. By the way that Emily treated me, I felt like I was the only bride she was working with! The pictures Emily captured of our wedding were stunning - way beyond all that I had imagined! So if you’re looking for an incredibly talented team to capture the true essence of your wedding in the most beautiful way, I would 100% recommend Emily & Co!

If you are in the Tampa Bay/Florida Area and you are looking for an amazing photographer, I TOTALLY COMPLETELY RECOMMEND EMILY!!!! I did a TON of research when I was deciding on my photographer. It’s your special day and you want the pictures to be beautiful and capture every happy moment!

My husband (YAY LOVE SAYING THAT) and I are both from Maryland, we currently live in Georgia- but we had a destination wedding in Clearwater Beach, Florida. Crazy, Right!??! Emily was seriously a breath of fresh air to work with. I felt pressured and taken advantage of when receiving quotes from some photographers— but NOT with Emily. She was so sweet from the very first time we spoke. She was so accommodating and easy to work with since the beginning. She customized our package based on our wants and needs. She was perfect.

And during the actual wedding- she was an angel sent from above! A wedding can be very stressful and overwhelming at times, and when its your special day, you really need the people around you and working for you- to work with you to make everything go as smoothly as possible. That was Emily for me. She was so flexible, supportive, and made me feel so comfortable. Emily is not only an amazing photographer, but she is a genuine person.

Her photography skills are undeniable. The pictures are exactly what I was looking for. When I first starting communicating with Emily, I told her about a certain style of photos that I was looking for- “light and airy” and she delivered! My pictures are absolutely drop dead gorgeous!!!- My friends and family members keep telling me how amazing my photos are from the wedding—-and I have Emily & Co. to thank for that.

Emily, Thank you so much for photographing the BEST day of my life!

Emily is simply wonderful! From the first time I got in contact with her she was professional and accommodating. She was very receptive to our ideas and was very helpful in planning our engagement shoot. Throughout our engagement we struggled with deciding between having a big wedding or a small ceremony. Emily was always available to chat and help us feel at ease about our choice. Emily was willing to roll with any idea that we threw out, which really helped relieve some of the stress of planning. We went for the small ceremony and on our wedding day Emily kept everything organized and was very patient and relaxed. I do not know what I would have done without her and Chelsie there! Emily’s work is simply amazing and her creative eye is one of a kind. Working with Emily is so fun and it feels like you are hanging out with a friend. There are not enough words to describe how amazing Emily is and I would recommend Emily & Co. to anyone in a heartbeat!

There are so many amazing things I could say about Emily and her assistant’s work for our engagement photos! Once we contacted her, she instantly began getting to know us and what we like. There was an instant connection between her and my fiancé! She picked the perfect location at the perfect time and everything she had in mind was what my fiancé and I had dreamed of! The session was totally relaxed and well prepared by the time we got there. She took her time and definitely gave us her full attention! She made us feel incredibly special! We even got to see some of the shots on the camera as we went along and were totally blown away by the quality of her unedited pictures! We can’t say enough how much fun and affordable her services are! If you’re like me and want to support someone who is passionate about what they do, you won’t want to miss the opportunity to have Emily be your special occasion photographer. Thank you for all your hard work and dedication! You’re awesome!

First time getting a professional photographer and she made sure that we got some great pictures...she made us look like pros! I’m so happy that she was there to capture our day and she gave us the most beautiful pictures. Coming from out of the area I was nervous booking someone but she was so easy to talk to and quick to respond to any questions.

Emma truly is what you would call an outstanding photographer. With a professional and positive attitude she can capture such depth and emotion in her photography like I have never seen before in another artist. When you book with Emma, you not only have an experience but a lifetime of those little moments caught on film. I am more than grateful that I was able to book her for my wedding and I thank her often for all the hard work she put in to make my wedding photography as smooth as possible! I would absolutely recommend her for any photography needs as she is one of the best photographers in the Tampa Bay/Sarasota area.

Emily is amazing! After looking at all her great photographs we decided to book her for our engagement photos session and not only did we get great photos we got a great person too! She is very personable, kind, and knowledgeable. She takes all of your suggestions seriously, as well as sharing her own suggestions and poses that turn out perfect! Couldn’t be happier with the way things turned out. Emily really captures the moment and the love between people which is a talent hard to find these days! We hope to have her photograph our wedding as well!

I found Emily shortly after I started planning my wedding. Photographs were something I knew were going to be very important to me. Everyone that I spoke to told me how quickly the day passes (to which I can now say- they were all right…), and how wonderful it is to have those moments captured to reflect on. My husband and I knew we also wanted a more relaxed and natural feel and look to our wedding photos. After reviewing Emily’s work, she seemed like the perfect fit. I began our consult with the words every photographer dreads hearing, “We hate having our photos taken.” This didn’t deter Emily in the least. She asked all the right questions and we clicked. I knew that she was the person who would get my photo-hating groom out of his shell. Our engagement session was a blast, and our photographs turned out fabulous. Everything felt natural and not awkward at all. We got a sneak peek about a week later and she made herself available to send HD or Web copies of whatever we needed- which was super helpful as we used some of them for my Bridal Shower. Our wedding was similar to the feel of our engagement shoot. Everything flowed naturally and Emily did a brilliant job of capturing the perfect moments. She was very accommodating when guests who had specific requests, but quick to return to capturing all of the un-posed moments. She brought along her assistant and a second photographer, and we couldn’t have been more pleased. We can’t wait to reach out to Emily again for whatever comes next in life!

As a bride planning a destination wedding from afar, I did a lot of research leading up to our big day. I am a firm believer that your photographs are the biggest wedding decision you will make, since it is the only thing that lasts! Flowers will wilt, cake will be eaten, the dress you wear only once…but the photographs are your only way of seeing those special moments, the only investment you will use after your ceremony, and the best way to decorate your new home together! So, I scoured photographers-putting in countless hours of reviewing galleries, reading biographies, and vetting quotes. I even passed up three personal recommendations to choose my number one choice: Emily & Co. Photography. And I’m so glad I did.

Emily is so easy to work with, sweet, creative, flexible, low-key, encouraging, and a MASTER photographer. The moments Emily captured, the natural way she posed us, the going out of her way to meet my dream requests (without making me feel guilty,) the professional editing she added to create the most beautiful beach images, and the thoughtful preview/quick turnaround was worth every penny, if not more. I HIGHLY recommend Emily’s services in order to get the best photos possible.

Devin + Lindsey - Anna Maria Island Wedding Photography - Couple Photos - Emily & Co. Photography (18).jpg
Lindsey and I couldn’t be happier with our photos or the experience of working with Emily. We wanted a small, simple ceremony and Emily was on the same page from the get-go. She embraced the small scale of our event and never treated it as anything less than the most important day of our lives together. She met with us repeatedly to go over the details of the event and to spend time getting to know us.
On the day of the event, she was unobtrusive during the ceremony and then incredibly organized and creative for the photo shoot. Our photos are beautiful! Emily was fun, funny, professional, and informed. She was a huge relief to have involved because at no point did we have to worry about what was going on with the photos, who needed to be wrangled for the next photo, or if things were going to be finished before we lost the sunset.
If you’re in the market for a photographer, please do yourself a favor and meet with Emily. She will instantly put you at ease with her professional knowledge and warm, personable manner. And if that part doesn’t matter to you, perhaps you should stick around for the gorgeous photography. She’ll make you look great.

Emily and her team provided a wonderful experience for our wedding! My husband and I met Emily a few years back and when we became engaged we knew hands down we needed her to photograph our engagement and wedding day. The engagement session was in Summer 2016 and was perfect. She provided a “sneak peak” within 24 hours so we could use a few photos from that to create our wedding website. On the wedding day her and her team arrived promptly on time and immediately started shooting. We opted for two photographers so we could capture more images in a shorter amount of time and I’m so glad we did. Having the extra photographer along with an assistant proved to be a good decision. Every special moment was caught on film. We received some photos in another sneak peak shortly after the wedding so we could share with family and friends. We have yet to receive the wedding photos (our wedding was only a week ago), but I’m positive they’ll be spectacular. We highly recommend Emily and her team for your photo needs.

Emily was such an incredible photographer to work with! Completely professional and extremely easy to work with. She was so helpful and patient with my hectic day and made it so much easier for us!

We were wanting Emily for our wedding however she was already busy on our day. We did talk though about needing some pictures for our save the date cards that needed to go out ASAP and still offered to take those for us. She worked us in the following weekend and had multiple preview pictures up that night like she said. We got a ton of lovely shots and it was such an ease being in front of her camera and at her direction. She also provided us with a list of alternate photographers in our area and price range to help with our search after. We wish she could have been part of our big day but are so thankful for what Emily was able to do for us.

To say that Emily was wonderful would be an understatement! We both appreciate her taking time to meet us in Tampa to capture pictures of our interactions with one another.
She is quick in her response and incredibly flexible. We had our engagement shoot yesterday and already have a handful of amazing previews.
Emily captures the light beautifully and made us feel at ease. She guided us in poses that felt natural and not at all stiff. We are truly grateful that she lent us her talent and are looking forward to her shooting our wedding in July!

I’m so glad we chose Emily for our engagement photos. We had our session two days ago and already have a preview of some of the finished photos online; they are absolutely gorgeous! Emily knows how to best capture the natural light to create really beautiful photos. She is professional but also super friendly and made us feel very at ease. She had tons of suggestions for poses and told us exactly what to do, but was also accommodating for any requests we had. She even took extra shots after the session ended so we could capture the beautiful sunset that popped out. Her prices are also very affordable! I highly recommend Emily and would definitely hire her again- hopefully she’ll be available for our wedding!

Emily is awesome! She was very professional, approachable, fun, and easy to work with during our engagement photos session. She came with good ideas for poses which looked great, but also requested to know which poses and props we wanted to use, too. She made us feel very comfortable, and we will definitely reach out to Emily for any future photo sessions we plan to take. We were anxious to see how the photos came out, and she even started working on and sharing some of the photos she had taken on the same day, and they are amazing! The lighting was perfect, and she really captured the essence of us and our relationship. This experience and the photos are worth every cent, and I am so glad we found her!!!!!

Emily was an absolutely amazing photographer. Her photos were absolutely gorgeous and she had such a way of making us feel comfortable and natural with all the photos. We had a blast with her doing our engagement photos and our wedding photos. I even did a mini boudoir shoot with Emily to give as a gift to my now husband and he said it was the best gift he had ever gotten! I would highly recommend Emily & Co photography. You will not be disappointed!

Emily has far exceeded any expectations I had as far as a weddding photographer goes. She is so attentive, offers so many great suggestions, and is so open to the style and feel of what you want for your wedding. She was able to capture my day in a way I never thought possible. She is an incredibly sweet human being, and made the day super enjoyable and not stressful in any way. If your looking for Pinterest worthy pictures and an amazing experience to boot, this is your girl!

I can’t say enough good things about Emily. She did a pre-wedding shoot for me and was so enjoyable to work with! She made me feel at ease in front of the camera and we had a great time - but most importantly the pictures came out AWESOME!
She then did our wedding and my husband and I both just were so happy with our decision to hire her. Our personalities meshed so well. She gave great creative direction and was also very open to our ideas. Emily was able to make sure we got all of the pictures we had discussed wanting but also letting us enjoy our wedding! She is brilliant behind the camera and a pleasure to work with. If you hire her you will not be sorry. We have only seen the sneak peeks and they are amazing. Pictures are very important to my husband and I so we couldn’t be more pleased with who we chose and the pictures we have forever :)

We had Emily capture both our engagement photos last year and our wedding day in April 2016; I cannot recommend her enough! The engagement photos were so stunning, it was hard to believe she could get better until we saw the wedding photos! She is truly an amazing photographer and we are so excited to see how Emily and Co. will continue to grow. We are convinced she is going to be famous one day! Emily and her team are professional yet fun and put everyone in front of the camera at ease— so important because that shows in the pictures. Emily consistently went above and beyond to make sure our day was captured perfectly. We had a wonderful team of vendors but I have to say Emily was our favorite and contributed the most to us feeling at ease and that everything was under control. When the limo showed up late, she is the one I called! To sum up, we are so glad we found Emily and that she was able to be a part of our special day. The photos we’ve seen perfectly capture the joy and magic we felt that day and we can’t wait to see the rest!

Emily was great for my wedding. Besides being a great photographer, she also became a go to person for me to figure out some random wedding stuff (like cutting the cake, which we didn’t go over in rehearsal!). Having Emily at my wedding was a huge relief for me as she was very professional, creative, and had a great demeanor about her throughout the day. I loved working with her and wish I lived closer so I could have another shoot with her.

Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a professional photographer!
I completely and thoroughly enjoyed my experience with Emily & Co. Photography! From the first moment I contacted Emily about the photo-shoot she was polite and nice and helpful! The photo-shoot itself was bliss, she was amazingly good at maintaining flow and taking pictures at the right time so that it could be something fun and enjoyable! She was great at gently explaining what to do and how so that everything would come out right! I adored the whole experience and would do it again and again! Thank you so much! You’re awesome!

I flew Emily to Boston to take our photos. Although she claims she usually spends time at the site of the photo shoot beforehand planning, you would never know!

Emily is the most amazing perfect photographer! I am so happy I found her and recommend her to anyone and everyone. She is SO sweet and so talented! She met me before my wedding to walk thru the venue together and let me point out spots I would like pictures at and she recommended spots as well. She was on time and met me exactly when she said she would. She also was at the wedding before I arrived like I wanted her to be. She took pictures of my wedding ceremony, reception, formals of Chris and I and all our family and friends. She recommended poses and did her own thing! She uploaded all the pictures in a timely manner after the wedding and I am blown away! My pictures are so beautiful and she truly captured my magical day! I am so grateful and thankful I have such beautiful captivating pictures for the rest of my life. My family and friends who have seen the pictures are just as impressed and say she’s an amazing photographer! She truly has talent and I wouldn’t of wanted any other photographer! If you are getting married or having any type of event and need a photographer, you HAVE to hire Emily. She really is a dream come true and very reasonably priced! Emily, thank you from bottom of my heart for capturing all my moments! It was a magical, perfect day and the pictures show that and are a dream come true as well! You are such a sweetheart and such an amazing, gifted photographer!!!
