Emily and Thomas are a dream to work with. They are both so passionate about providing beautiful, quality images to their clients. I am so happy that I have some photos of me and my husband on film, thanks to Emily. Her work is incredible and I am so happy to have worked with her. She is quick to respond, happy to discuss details, and provides a beautiful product. I highly recommend using Emily and Thomas for your wedding, engagement, portraits, etc!

Emily Katharine Photography shot my wedding in March of this year. My expectations were absolutely exceeded. Emily was professional and on top of it. The lines of communication were open and direct. Whenever I voiced a need or a want, Emily responded gracefully and made it happen. Emily also directed us while we were taking photos, which was invaluable. She and her team took initiative with the photos and it showed. The pictures turned out beautifully. We couldn't believe it! The team had done the research, gone to the venue, scoped out the light and location, and gotten to know us and what we wanted. This really came through in the shots! As a bride there are so many things to worry about, and if you book Emily Katharine Photography-- photography will not be something you will need to worry about. She covers her bases, and does this job beautifully and with style!

I’ve known Emily since I was about ten. We went to summer camp together and she was always an incredible friend. When my husband and I were looking for wedding photographers for our August wedding in Vermont, I knew immediately who my first choice was. I’d been following Emily’s business since it started, and I was so impressed with her portfolio. I was beyond thrilled that she was available and able to travel all the way to Vermont with her assistant Thomas to photograph our wedding. Through the entire time we corresponded, to the end of the night of the wedding, she and Thomas were so incredibly professional, kind and considerate of all of our requests. There are so many moving parts involved in a wedding, and the last thing you want to worry about is whether your special day will be captured. With Emily Katharine Photography, you will have absolutely nothing to be concerned about. Emily and Thomas are such professionals, and, unlike some wedding photographers I’ve seen, blended right in and were so nice to our guests. I heard so much positive feedback from everyone about how incredibly polite and courteous they were throughout the night. Not only were they astounding the day of the wedding (literally climbing into the barn’s hay loft to get better angles), but the turn around on the photos was lightning fast, we had most of them within a month or less. The photos were lovely and we will cherish them and what they captured forever. We can’t thank Emily and Thomas enough for everything and wish them and their business the best of luck! They come with the highest recommendation my husband and I can give.

We heard about Emily and Thomas through a friend who had recently gotten married. After meeting with Emily for the first time we never felt out of the loop. She kept in great contact with us and gave us updates throughout the process of taking pictures (first engagement, then wedding) all the way through us getting our disks and her asking for feedback. I am not normally a person who enjoys being photographed, but Emily and Thomas made the experience a breeze. Within minutes it feels like you are just out taking pictures with old friends. They are both amazing people and phenomenal at what they do! We cannot recommend them highly enough. I also don't believe you can find a sweeter photographer!

From the first email, Emily was quickly responsive and very helpful. After a few conversations with Emily, my fiance and I decided to try her out with some engagement photos. We had a blast as Emily and her fun loving second shooter, modeled for us, kept conversation flowing and helped us relax. I love how while waiting for the photos, sneak peeks were available on her blog and Facebook. We loved the arrangement of photos we received back on a DVD packaged so sweetly. We kept in very close contact with Emily and Thomas up until our wedding, when they blew us away with the moments they captured. They were very professional yet easy going, which was important to me. They were able to snap so many candid shots without being noticed. I am so thankful to have had Emily and Thomas photograph our big day and I look forward to the next event I can work with them again.

I am the type of person that does a lot of research before I commit to a vendor. I personally know a lot of photographers and my husband had been a wedding photographer for a while too. When we were researching, Emily’s photos had a look to them that no other photographer got quite so perfectly. They captured a feeling, a quiet, a palpable sense of peace in their pictures that eventually boils down to raw talent. No other photographers gave us the visceral and immediate feelings that Emily Katharine Photography’s photos did.
We booked Emily a year in advance. We had a very specific date in mind that didn't have flexibility on changing. Before the big day, Emily would text me regularly to get me hyped up, and to also keep a pulse on how I was feeling throughout the whole planning process. Wedding prep is really hard, and it's easy for a bride to get completely overwhelmed by the details. Emily honestly cared about me throughout, highlighting the importance of timelines and itineraries, and served as an awesome sounding board for ideas. She also helped keep me grounded through the process, making sure my ideas were reasonable on everyone involved. On wedding day, Emily was my shadow. While I was in the whirlwind of getting ready and getting pushed from place to place to stay on schedule, Emily documented the whole process for me. She has this down to a science. She watches and waits with incredible patience and captures every moment. From hair to makeup to dresses to standing around and generically “getting ready”, she is next to you, supporting you, gushing about you, loving you as much as she genuinely and professionally can-- while taking pictures of it all. Together with Thomas, they get every nuanced and tender second, while also capturing all of the giggle fits. It’s impossible not to love everything about Emily Katharine Photography!

Emily Katharine Photography was hired as our engagement and wedding photographers. I had shot weddings in the past myself, so I knew what my wife and I would need in regards to skill level, equipment used, and general knowledge of how to be a wedding photographer. Emily Katharine Photography's skill level was immediately evident when we looked at the website. Also, we enjoyed working with Emily and Thomas on a personal level. People underestimate the importance of getting along with your vendors. We needed to be able to trust our photographers, and they absolutely earned that trust from our first meeting.
Thomas and the rest of my party knew we were in for a long wait. My wife, while I love her dearly, has a poor concept of time. She planned a lot of buffer and blew right through it in prep. Thomas hung out with us and photographed the boys being boys. He took me aside and got photos of myself alone without being intrusive. All in all, both Emily and Thomas were very professional and great about keeping both parties on schedule without being pushy. They’re sensible and they prioritize; they know which shots are necessary for Thank You cards, while also recognizing which moments will matter most to the bride and groom. Both Emily and Thomas know when to give excellent direction. They were a pleasure to work with, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone else and work with them personally again.

As soon as I saw samples of photos taken by Emily and Thomas of Emily Katharine Photography, I knew I wanted them at my wedding! And, I was so fortunate for that to come true. Emily and Thomas were professional and sweet ... our friends and family adored both of them. They also made posing for pictures more fun than my husband and I could ever imagine! It's said that your wedding day will be a blur, and it was, but when I look through the pictures ... from the photos of our entire family to the amazingly detailed candid shots of the experience ... I remember it all well. That wouldn't be possible without Emily and Thomas. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Emily Katharine Photography is a phenomenal company and the photographers, Emily & Thomas, are the definition of professionals in the wedding and photography industries. We had a great chemistry with Emily, right off the bat, with her warmth and knowledgeability. She was able to gauge and accommodate our photographic needs based on our personal styles and how we wanted to remember our event.
It was very important for us to have a great communicator in our vendors because we were planning our Florida wedding from Nashville, TN. Imagine our relief when we booked with Emily Katharine Photography, we guaranteed ourselves a vendor that was on time to our event and responded to our questions & concerns swiftly.

I am forever grateful for the way Emily captured every moment of our wedding, and I will treasure her photos for years to come. Plus, her blog writing was spot on - she brought our love story to life with such beautiful words. I will highly recommend Emily always!
