I could not imagine choosing a better wedding photographer than Emily and her team. Choosing a great photographer was one of the most important decisions during our wedding planning process, and I looked into many, many photographers before choosing Emily. Emily’s incredible... Read More work speaks for itself, but what really sets her apart is her professionalism and wonderful personality. Emily was such a joy to work with from start to finish. She is very organized and detail-oriented and helped to make the planning process worry-free. We loved the engagement photos that she shot for us, and could not wait to work with her again on our wedding day. On our wedding day, Emily and her team were such a calming presence and made it so easy for us to capture all of the various photographs we wanted without us feeling like we spent the entire day taking pictures. She helped us to feel so natural and comfortable in our photographs and really captured every single raw emotion and special moment during our wedding day. Her assistant Nick was also such a warm, funny person and a joy to work with as well. We truly could not have imagined our photographs coming out any better. I cannot stop looking at our gorgeous photos, and Emily and her team did such a wonderful job of capturing the special moments that I feel transported back to our perfect day every time I look at our pictures.

Unbelievable.. truly unbelievable! Emily Wren Photography is simply the best in the Philadelphia area. My husband and I hired Emily to capture our wedding day. She did not disappoint! In fact, she exceeded our expectations from day one during our first meeting. Emily is... Read More professional, authentic and a true artist. Her work is unlike others as her style is soft and romantic. Further, she tells a story through her photos which we absolutely love. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Emily and her team.

We truly had the most special day and are absolutely blown away by the memories Emily and team have captured for us to look back on for a lifetime. As my mother simply put it, "Emily is a world class photographer." Thank you!!!!

Emily is an incredibly talented photographer and organized business woman, which make her THE gal for your big day. Hiring her for our engagement and wedding photos was a decision I'd make over and over again. Not only does she take beautiful photos, but she is extremely... Read More organized and communicative; she sent valuable timeline and planning materials well in advance, had a couple of prep calls with us beforehand, and overall, Emily gave me confidence that the day would go smoothly and on-time. On our wedding day, Emily and her second shooter, Nick, made us feel beautiful, comfortable, and they captured all of the best candid moments without being obtrusive. They also worked SEAMLESSLY with our video team, Squareware studios (who Emily recommended on her preferred vendors). My husband will never forget Emily's preparedness, as she gave him an emergency Kind bar when he was hangry :) She's one of the best in the biz and made us so happy -- we have received endless complements on our photos!

While living in Philadelphia, I became friends with Emily’s husband Gregg and learned about his wife’s photography business. I remember looking at her photos and thinking “how stunning!” When my now husband proposed and the wedding planning began, I immediately thought to hire... Read More Emily Wren Photography for our big day. They were so accommodating, especially given the fact that we were now living in the New York area. We video chatted for our first “meet” and immediately felt comfortable. On the day of our wedding, Emily, Gregg and her team were absolutely amazing to work with! They were very easy going, funny, gave great direction and moved things along quickly. Every person in my wedding party raved about the team, and I couldn’t agree more. They went as far as walking in the water to get the perfect shots! We received our sneak peek (which was way more photos than we expected) in such a short time and the entire suite of pictures within a month – and they are STUNNING! We received our videos shortly after, and are absolutely in love! I highly recommend Emily Wren Photography and hope to work with them again some day!

Emily was such a joy to work with! She is an extremely talented photographer and brings such a high level of artistry and romanticism to her work. On our very first phone call, I could tell Emily would bring a sense of calm to our wedding day. Our engagement photo session and... Read More portrait sessions felt very relaxed and comfortable and never forced. Anytime I mentioned that Emily was our photographer, I received an “Oo” or an “Aww” and I knew that we were in good hands. Her team was wonderful. I can’t say enough nice things about them. They were all very professional, courteous, and also constantly had us smiling and laughing! By the end of the night our friends were requesting photos with them. I received so many compliments after the wedding about Emily, Gregg and the rest of the team and how great they were. And now I’m receiving so many compliments on how amazing the photos turned out. Thank you all so much for making our wedding day so special! I wish we could do it all over again!

We got Emily's name from a friend who used her for their wedding, so we knew going into wedding planning that she was great and we loved her work, but we were not prepared for just how WONDERFUL Emily and her team are. From the first email to our wedding day, Emily was... Read More professional, responsive, thoughtful and kind. We always felt like we were talking to a friend, rather than a vendor who had a bunch of other couples to deal with too. She helped answer questions and made us feel comfortable every step of the way. My husband and I both hate being the center of attention, which is obviously difficult to avoid on your wedding day, but Emily and her partner Nick made everything feel so natural and easy. I can't recommend her enough - if you're looking for the best photographer out there, Emily is your gal!

I can't even begin to tell you how lucky I feel that I landed Emily to photograph my wedding. Not only did she customize the package to make it exactly what I needed for the big day, she made planning the day so easy and stress-free for me which was really really really helpful... Read More since I broke my leg only 3 and a half months before the big day. She made me feel so at ease all day and my family even commented after the wedding that she was lovely and really quick on her feet. She got all of the family photos done so efficiently that my husband and I had time to enjoy part of our cocktail hour, which I think is amazing. She captured the best parts of the wedding through a variety of circumstances: outdoors in nature, during the ceremony, family portraits, and reception that was without power due to a township-wide power outage. Everything I wanted to remember dearly was captured in beautiful color and warmth. I couldn't be happier with how my photos turned out and have actually ordered prints from the wedding to give as gifts because of how beautifully they turned out. Working with Emily was the easiest part of the entire wedding planning process, minus saying "I do". :) I would highly recommend her to anyone anytime any place!

Emily is one-of-a-kind & an incredible photographer. I’m still amazed at how she captured our engagement photos in 45 minutes & sent them back to us within 24 hours- talk about a lasting first impression! :) What differentiates Emily is that she goes above & beyond in her role... Read More in your wedding and all that leads up to it. She’s genuinely invested from start to finish, making it her priority to have the day be well-organized, flawlessly executed, fun, memorable & relaxing for the bride, groom & their family/friends. One thing I love about Emily is her ability to leverage & refer her amazing network of vendors to ensure an overall spectacular event- for me this incl. florist Faye+Renee & wedding planner Caitlin @ Clover Event Co, who was my saving grace and I met only from Emily making the connection. Everything about our wedding was so incredible due to this collaboration of all-stars, all possible thanks to Emily’s guidance & expertise- we feel so grateful to have had her as the leader to our dream team of A++ vendors! Picture this: 11 bridesmaids, 9 groomsmen, 4 sets of parents + extended family, a bride & groom; requesting a first look & all family photos to be completed before the ceremony scheduled for 6:30PM. With Emily’s composure, advanced preparation, organization & just plain awesome-ness, we accomplished this successfully & stress-free! She is professional, reliable & brought her right-hand man/best team member of all time (Nick Antony) to assist onsite at our wedding. My husband & his groomsmen became Nick’s biggest fans almost instantly and sang his praises for the rest of the weekend. To top off our lovely wedding day w/Emily & Nick, 2 days later we received from them the kindest email simply wishing us well & letting us know we could expect a sneak peek to our photos in no more than 2 weeks. I can’t speak highly enough of Emily & all she did to make our wedding absolutely lovely- she's so good you may want to consider a new date if she's already booked! :)

Our pictures are, simply put, amazing. The whole day still feels like a blur, but the photos captured everything perfectly. Seeing the photographs actually proves that the day was real. Emily's communication throughout the wedding process was phenomenal. Lauri, one of Emily's... Read More associates, was our photographer and we loved getting to know her during our engagement shoot. We felt so comfortable with her on our wedding day. In all of the photos that I had previewed from different photographers of our venue, they all had similar "typical" spots at the venue where they photographed. Lauri had such a great eye for finding different spots, which blew me away when I viewed the photos. Everyone that I have shown the pictures to has raved about them. Emily was one of the easiest vendors to work with. She works closely with her associates to ensure that no detail is overlooked. The editing of the photos is amazing and the finishing touches and packaging shows just how thoughtful Emily is with her business. The photos still make me smile every time I look at them. Thank you, Emily and team!!

We received so many compliments on our springtime cherry blossom shoot! On the day of the wedding, Emily and her assistant Nick (Nick is also fantastic and our guests absolutely loved him!) showed up early and stayed the entire day capturing everything. Emily will tell you, she takes more pictures than most photographers and her attention to detail really shines through. We've been in awe of the breathtaking pictures and moments that Emily was able to capture. Candid shots during the ceremony, beautiful nature shots of our outdoor venue, tasteful shots of the tables/food/place settings before the party started, and she is an absolute professional at organizing group shots. We had a very large family to be photographed and Emily controlled the situation and kept everything flowing without any stress for us or our guests.

Emily not only captures your day, but also adds to it.

Emily was recommended by my venue... Read More (Front & Palmer). Front & Palmer is unique and urban; it lends itself to a lot of BHLDN-ish weddings. I knew I wanted this style for my wedding, but I also wanted to add a romantic/glam touch. When I looked through Emily’s portfolio, I knew she would be able to photograph my vision. The first thing I noticed was her ability to capture emotion. Her photos tell the story of the wedding day. She captures intimate moments, details...EVERYTHING. Each wedding you look at of hers makes you feel different because every bride and groom is different. I planned my wedding out-of-town, so phone calls with potential vendors were huge for me. I remember the first time I spoke to Emily, I felt that she was truly listening to my vision, while also being true to her own style and giving me all the information I needed to know about working together. She does a ton of weddings and because of this is incredibly organized. She contacted me at the appropriate time for our engagement shoot, sent us a preparation checklist for both the engagement and wedding day. She even guides you in things like what to wear! It takes all the stress out of the process! On our wedding day, we had two photographers--Emily and Nick. They were both AMAZING! They guided us through the process, but were not ever a disturbance. The locations Emily chose for our photos were gorgeous, and the entire bridal party was impressed by her leadership.
