We get it, you're doing your research to find the best photographer to capture you candidly, not overly posed, and you want to feel comfortable. We've showcased ten five star Google reviews below and have a lot more where they came from.

First & foremost, Emily SHOULD BE if she's not already your "GO TO" photographer. I kid you not, I planned on my second shoot before my first one was even done haha! I say that with the utmost confidence because she's absolutely incredible and capable of capturing any occasion PERFECTLY. A few months ago, I found myself on the hunt for a local photographer for our last minute wedding plans due to COVID. I had contacted Emily as well as a number of other photographers in the area (most of which never even responded to my inquiries). Emily not only responded immediately, but was VERY interested to find out what my "vision" entailed. Vision? I hadn't even given it much thought honestly. Emily worked tirelessly with me going back and forth discussing the tiny details of our wedding to ensure absolute perfection & we definitely got just that- despite any last minute hiccups like the Jefferson Hotel NOT opening until our actual wedding day ha! The flexibility and support that Emily and her husband provided definitely went unmatched. She checked in periodically with me to see how I was feeling about everything and to see if there was anything she might be able to help with. They truly are great human beings! It's not just a business, it's Emily's passion & she's absolutely spectacular at what she does from the minute you first connect with her.

Can’t say enough good things about Emily! We originally had her for a full 7 hours for our wedding, when it became clear we couldn’t do the event we had planned she was extremely understanding after first canceling and then agreeing to do a significantly scaled down event. She was great about directing our first look as well as corralling all of our relatives (and dog) for family photos. During the event she was great at making sure we got important shots without being a bother or getting in the way. The end product turned out amazing and the quality couldn’t have been better! I highly recommend Emily and would certainly use her again in the future! Thank you Emily so much for capturing the special day in the best way possible!

Emily is a phenomenal photographer and has such a natural talent at what she does! Her energy is so personable and positive. She is really fun to work with and takes all the stress and anxiety away of having your pictures done. My headshots and branding shots came out beautiful, professional and captured the look I was hoping for! She is a wonderful person and is amazing at what she does. I recommend her to ANYONE who wants their photos done for business, personal or celebratory events. It feels so good to know I can call on her in the future for any new photos I'll definitely be needing done. Thank you so much Emily!!!!!

I absolutely loved Emily. She was very professional but also silly and had a fun personality. Our wedding photos came out phenomenal and I will DEFINITELY hire her again if I need a photographer. Well worth the money! She also let us do our impression of a meme which I thought was awesome.

Emily is amazing! My fiance and I had our engagement session with her a few months ago - she completely blew our expectations out of the water! She is so much fun, responsive, professional, and she makes you feel so comfortable behind the camera. On top of that, our pictures turned out absolutely incredible! So grateful we found her to capture our special day!

Emmi was amazing! Her attention to detail, professionalism, and group interaction made her an integral part of our wedding. Her work is just beautiful and everyone who attended commented about her. If you want a photographer who will truly capture the magic and every special moment of your event, then I highly recommend EmmiClaire Photography!

I decided to go with Emily after seeing so many great reviews of her work online! I asked her to photograph me proposing to my (now) fiance at Libby Hill Park in Richmond, VA. She is so friendly, easy to work with, communicated with me throughout the entire planning process, and caught so many candid moments on camera when the day arrived. I would definitely recommend her!!!

I had such a positive interaction with Emily from the start! She goes the extra mile to get the photos that you are looking for. She offered some mini sessions in a sunflower field and I jumped on the opportunity. Prior to the shoot, Emily sent some dress tips and answered any questions that I had. Within a day or two she shared a few images from the shot and I was so impressed! She shared the rest of the gallery with me very quickly and the photos were beautiful. Definitely would recommend her services to anyone in Virginia and I will definitely book with her again!
