Where do I begin with Emma Lynn?! She is seriously a blessing from above! She went above and beyond to assist us in making our engagement and wedding videos (yes, plural), so amazing and I feel so lucky she was by our side. She was attentive, thoughtful, and such a kind spirit,... Read More she made Amos and I comfortable. In regards to the videos, she would always give us a preview before publishing it and was so considerate of our suggestions, she created a film that was more beautiful than we can fathom. I have already recommended her to a few my girlsfrends who are planning to get married soon. If you haven't found a videographer yet, its because you have not come across Emma Lynn. She's seriously one of the best in the buisness.

This girl is one of the sweetest, kindest, and amazing videographer/cinematographers that I have ever met! From the day I met Emma, I knew she would capture everything I was looking for in a video. On our engagement shoot, she tagged along to capture different moments... Read More throughout to create a small 2 minute video. I have NO idea how Emma did it, but she took different clips and moments, and turned them into one of the most tear-jerking films I have ever seen! I absolutely loved our engagement video. We received SO many wonderful comments on it. After that, I just knew Emma would do an amazing job on our wedding day. Throughout the entire engagement, Emma always made sure to check in with me and make sure there were no outstanding questions or concerns, which was something I truly valued. I love when people go out of their way to ensure you are comfortable and ready for one of the biggest days of your life! On the wedding day, Emma showed up right on time (if not early) and was ready to shoot. She brought along an assistant who was also truly sweet and wonderful. I know Emma captured everything I would love to see in our wedding video, and I cannot wait to see the final outcome of it!! I will forever recommend Emma to anyone who is looking for a videographer/cinematographer! Thank you so much for everything!!

Emma was the best decision. We decided not to get a videographer to help with costs since we were paying for most of our wedding ourselves. 2 weeks before the wedding I started having major regret about not getting a videographer. My photographer recommended Emma and after... Read More looking at her work I knew she was the one. Her style of videography is gorgeous, romantic and whimsical. My mom ended up surprising us and paying to have Emma for our wedding day. I was so happy Emma was available for our wedding day with such short notice. She responded quickly by email and even called to explain all my questions I had. She was seriously the sweetest person ever, very patient and respectful. She worked well with my photographer. I never noticed her like you do some videographers. She was hidden when she should be to capture the most natural shots and then in your face for the obvious shots. My husband and I loved her and we have seen a short teaser of our wedding day and are in love. We can't wait to see the whole thing. She has many priced packages to work with all budgets. She stayed so calm and works very efficiently so the whole day ran smooth!
