Photography Reviews

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.

Emily is the best photographer out there! She was a delight to work with and she captured every angle of our wedding that we wanted! She went above and beyond for us capturing drone photos, funny moments, behind the scenes sneak peaks, detail shots, and many more aspects of our wedding day that we didn’t even think of! She’s hilariously full of funny moments that help you feel comfortable like you’re doing a photo shoot with a friend. She really did an amazing job capturing my wife and I’s best angles, poses, lighting, and even bridal party as well! She is reliable, polite, quick to respond, thorough in her work, and as professional as you want her to be! Shoutout to her second photographer as well who helped her capture our day in multiple angles! 20/5 stars!

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!!!!!

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then EmmiClaire Photography is a whole book! I couldn’t be more happy with the experience booking Emily for my wedding. She’s responsive, professional, personable, and most importantly: she’s honest! I’ve never worked with a photographer before that is willing to tell you when a pose you are doing or a face you are making isn’t going to make for a good picture, and our wedding portraits are proof of that. If you are considering booking Emily, do it, you won’t regret it!

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!

If you’re looking for a photographer you can stop searching because EmmiClaire Photography is the best hands down! Emily is great at what she does. She’s professional and skilled, but also a great person to work with. My husband does not smile for pictures so I knew our engagement shoot and wedding day would be interesting, but Emily is so good at making you feel comfortable and catching shots of you in the moment which led to so many beautiful pictures. I’m so happy I have beautiful photos with my husband actually smiling that I get to cherish for a lifetime. Emily made the entire process so simple for us and captured so many beautiful memories from our special day. I can’t say thank you enough. I highly recommend her!

Emily has a true passion for photography and she will make your session truly special. She’s the sweetest most professional photographer that I have worked with. Her pictures are spectacular and she’s there for you every step of the way. Super responsive and knows her stuff! I’m so glad we found her because she’s going to be our family photographer for a very long time!

Emily was a delight to work with!! Both my fiance and I were not the most comfortable in front of a camera but Emily made this such a fun experience. She quickly made us feel comfortable so we truly were able to relax and have a fun time goofing around. She is such a sweet person who honestly made us laugh so much! We're currently having a hard time picking a photo for the save the date since there is so many good options!! Do not hesitate to book Emily and she will deliver such great results :)

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. 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. 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. 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. 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.

I have nothing bad to say about our experience with EmmiClaire Photography! From booking to getting our photos I have loved the very personable yet professional experience I have had. The ease of the website, the helpful suggestions for locations, the contact we have had with the owner and our photographer have been wonderful and that doesn't even cover the beautiful photos I was happy to receive and display in my home. Absolutely intending on rebooking EmmiClaire Photography for next year's family photos!
