On top of being an incredibly talented photographer, Emily is a beautiful person inside and out. Her photography is top-notch and her easy-going personality and kind smile put everyone at ease during her sessions. On our rainy (and very windy) wedding day, she was able to capture the most stunning photos when the sun finally decided to come out, allowing the memories of our special day to be just that much more special. She is extremely reasonable in her pricing, and very flexible. Her ability to capture the most priceless moments when we didn't even notice she was there was incredible. Also, her turnaround time to get your photos is amazing! We had our pictures within 1-2 weeks after the event and were given the rights to re-print our photos and use them as we please -- as huge bonus!
I would recommend Emily for each and every photo session that you could plan, from engagement to marriage to newborn photos. She is a rare find and one that you would not be disappointed in when you see the final results :)
Working with Emily and her husband Darin was a blessing. We had terrible winds and cold, cold weather, but you wouldn't know it by the pictures! How Emily was able to make the day look perfect was amazing. We felt that she was personal and yet professional.
We love that we got the pictures as quickly as we did. Thanks to Emily for making our memories so beautiful for years to come.
I cannot express enough how great my experience was with Emily. We did engagement pictures, as well as wedding pictures and they were all phenomenal! She is a true professional in all of her dealings, but is also extremely personal. She was always dependable, never letting any detail fall through the cracks. Most importantly, the photos were PHENOMENAL! Would recommend her for any services.
Emily was amazing to work!! Emily was such a great communicator and provided so much advice that was so helpful during the wedding planning process!! Emily and her husband were a great pair to work with on our wedding day and we love all the pictures of our beach wedding!! We were so unsure who to go with for the photography and couldn't be more happy we chose Emily Rae Photography!
We can not thank you enough!
Both my husband and I have been married before so we had a very simple ceremony on the beach with our kids standing up for us. Emily understood our wishes for simple and non-traditional photos that captured both the special moments and also the importance of family for us in a simple yet elegant manner. We are very pleased with our photos and the quality service provided by Emily.
My husband and I got married may 18th 2013. We chose Emily Rae photography and are so happy with the results. Emily is easy to work with and very creative. We had so much fun on our wedding day and the pictures turned out so natural and exactly how we imagined!
Emily Rae and her husband took the most gorgeous wedding photos for our wedding this past July. I have gotten so many compliments and people asking who took my photos. She was more than wiling to do creative shots and she was not afraid to walk around downtown Grand Rapids to get great shots. She was VERY timely and made sure that we stayed to our schedule without rushing us. I was very impressed and would recommend her to anybody getting married in West Michigan area!
Our photos were beautiful and we received them in 2.5 weeks! Emily and her husband Darren were great, and managed to keep our big wedding party under control.
Emily is a wonderful photographer! She is so easy and fun to work with. Her pictures are amazing! I have been getting so many compliments. We were so lucky to have her!
Emily and Darin were fantastic to work with throughout our wedding. She was professional and considerate during the preparation phase and so fun on the wedding day. Despite poor weather Emily (pregnant at the time) and Darin went above and beyond to take beautiful outdoor photos with us. We were very appreciative and so glad that they shared in our day.
Emily and her husband shot our Ann Arbor, MI wedding in October. They were great to work with and handled our large wedding party very well. Emily helped us to plan the timing of our day and kept us on track. They were both so fun and made everyone feel comfortable. Overall, it was an excellent experience!
I am so glad my wife and I chose Emily to capture our special day! She made my wife (and especially me) feel so at ease throughout the entire day. She is super easy-going and great with all the family members. She has great style and taste but also let us put our own spin on some of the photos. She was more than willing to accommodate any of our needs throughout the day and really helped us throughout the entire process. Not to mention she did all this while preparing for a new addition to her own family! We would recommend Emily to anyone and we were so blessed to have her be part of our special day. Emily is the best, hands down.
Emily and her husband photographed our wedding on August 18th, 2012, and we couldn't have asked for better photographers. The wedding day was absolutely perfect, and they had brought a list of photos that I had asked for and made sure we got each one. They are both so nice and genuine, and the photos that we got back were AMAZING. I will be recommending Emily to everyone!
Emily is extremely professional yet easy going. Her husband, Darrin came along to help and was very cool and funny. I would definitely recommend Emily and I plan on using her photography services again in the years to come.
We can't say enough about Emily! We absolutely loved our engagement pictures, and were so excited because we knew our wedding photos would be amazing- and they were! She is so easy to be around, and makes you feel so comfortable. We will definitely be using her for any photography needs in the future! :)
My husband and I got our engagement and wedding photos from Emily for our September 2011 wedding and we couldn't be happier with the results!! Emily and her husband were so much fun during the photos- we were laughing the whole time! She takes such artistic shots without being obtrusive, I didn't even know she was there during the ceremony! She also made our 'Save the Dates' with the engagement pictures and we got so many compliments on them. The return time is super fast, too. I would 100% recommend Emily Rae Photography to everyone!
We had a blast working with Emily and Darin! Our pictures turned out amazing. I look forward to working with her again for family photos. Thanks Emily!!!!
We had our engagement session with Emily, she was amazing. She makes you feel totally comfortable, we had a great time. We loved so many of our pictures, it's hard to pick just one or two favorites.
We are glad to have Emily capturing the best moments of our lives on our wedding day next June!
Emily was great and so was her husband aka second photographer. Couldn't have been more comfortable with her. Perfect.
Emily and her husband, Darin, make a great photography team! My husband truly dislikes having his picture taken and they were able to put him at ease by focusing on candid shots and simply capturing the moments as they happened. The atmosphere was always fun and relaxing - it felt like Emily and Darin were family friends who just happened to show up with cameras. They were really understanding and easy to talk to. I would recommend them to anyone! They are awesome!!
