Contemporary, elegant and artistic wedding and portrait photography, a blend of photojournalism and editorial.

With a background in fine art photography, we approach each wedding day as the beautiful narrative you have worked so hard to make a reality. We relish in the fine details of everything from the flowers to the shoes, colors and of course the dress! We are able to capture all the emotions and details from a refreshing & unobtrusive perspective. Each part of the day is captured with the care and emotional understanding of a recent bride herself ;) We know how important these photos are and we feel it is an incredible honor to photograph a wedding.

Emily is absolutely a wonderful talent and a wonderful human being. She was the first vendor I booked and had her picked out even before I was engaged, she'd done several coworkers weddings and I fell in love. Unfortunately, my fiance and I cancelled our wedding (MIL problems) but our engagement photos are hung around our apartment, our save the dates were beautiful, and I cannot thank Emily enough for both those images of us in love and also for being so caring as we worked through this. She is a very happy soul and really gets to know each of her couples. I think that definitely shows in her pictures and they are something I will cherish forever.

Working with Emily was one of the best choices we made for our wedding. She and her husband Matt (second shooter) were such a pleasure to share our wedding day with! We loved Emily’s calmness, their positive energy, overall warmth, and team dynamic. Many felt it, as we had several guests tell us afterwards that they loved our photographers.

From our engagement shoot to our wedding day, we felt so comfortable with Emily. That’s not something tangible, but it's important. It’s such a personal and intimate celebration, but we felt relaxed and could truly be ourselves.

We first met Emily in-person for our engagement shoot. We hung out in our neighborhood getting to know each other, and then went off to shoot. We felt like she could have been our friend. We laughed a lot and unexpectedly had so much fun!

During the planning process, Emily was flexible with changing our engagement shoot date and overall was responsive to any concerns that we had. We discussed a lot of details through email.

When we received our wedding photos, we were so happy! They captured the cherished moments, family, friends, our venue and details in such an elegant way. We will forever treasure these photos. Her compositions and lighting are truly stunning. We love so many photos, but we especially loved our couple shots and the candid moments. We also appreciated that they hit just about everything on our (long) shot list.

If you hire Emily, you won’t be disappointed! She’s an authentic person with incredible talent for fine art photography.

Emily and Matt photographed our July 2016 wedding and they were incredible! The moment we met up with them for our engagement photos, we knew that we had made the right choice. They instantly felt like friends and we made connections through our love of great breweries and our home state of Maine. My husband was very nervous about getting in front of the camera and when we were done he said, "that didn't even feel like a photo shoot!" That was because it felt like we were hanging out in nice clothes with a couple of close friends -- smiling and laughing a whole lot!

Emily and Matt brought this feeling into our wedding day and they made the day seamless! The week of our wedding it was threatening to pour down rain. Emily contacted me and we had a long phone call that eased my stress and assured me that we had a plan to capture great photos -- no matter the weather! We were so thankful that when our wedding day came the rain held off, but having a plan eased my stress.

When our photos were delivered, they took our breath away and we will cherish them and share them with our family and friends for years to come. They are art. They are moments. They are us.

Emily and her husband Matt did an amazing job at our wedding! The pictures they gave us were just perfect and captured so many special moments for me to relive! They were also so friendly and relaxed during the entire process you forget they are there to do a job. I would highly recommend them. We received our pictures very quickly too. The style of the photos is very romantic and soft and perfect for telling a love story.

Emily and Matt were an amazing couple to work with! They make you feel comfortable in front of the camera while having a great time. We felt like we were hanging out with them rather than posing awkwardly. However, they never lost their professionalism and attention to detail. Our engagement photos were amazing and we can't wait to see the wedding ones. I would highly recommend Emily to anyone looking for a creative and talented photographer.

I'm beyond ecstatic about how our wedding photos came out -- Emily and Matt are both spectacular photographers -- but what makes the photos even more special for me is that I was unsure if I was the "right" kind of bride for Emily. You see, I'm a plus size bride -- which Emily doesn't generally feature on her website - and I was concerned up to our wedding day that even as beautiful as Em's pictures are, even as lovely as our engagement photos turned out, and even as wonderful, fun and kind a person she is, that I still wouldn't measure up. I'm stiff in front of the camera because I'm concerned about "looking fat" and I never come out looking like how I picture myself in my head. I was convinced while we were taking our formal portraits that as beautiful as I felt, I was ruining the shots with my stiff affect, my double chin and jiggly bits. When we got our photos back, I was shocked. Grinning back at me from the photos there was this glowing, gorgeous bride, who looked as spectacular I had felt on the day. Emily and Matt captured not only beautiful colors and light, but also the intense joy of that day, shown in our faces and those of our guests as we got married, ate, drank, danced and laughed our butts off. They captured moments that I remember so clearly and just locked them in time forever. Sure, there may be a stray double chin or jiggly bit here or there, and I may not be a bride featured in her portfolio, but her photos captured the magic of the day in a way that exceeded all my expectations, and they make me feel like a pretty princess every time I look at them!

Emily Delamater is exceptional in every way. She (and her husband Matt) are truly talented photographers. Their images are spectacular - managing to be soft but crisp, beautiful and real. Nothing gimmicky or tacky about Emily - pure, innate talent and taste. I couldn't be happier with the results of our engagement shoot and wedding day.

Beyond that, Emily is simply a great person and professional. She was generous with her time, really getting to know my husband and me. She put us instantly at ease, even managing to make us look natural (not easy!) She and Matt were also fabulous with all our family and guests - including grandparents and children. Everyone adored them.

We are likely more traditional than most of her clients, but still love the fine art photography style. She balanced our need for formal wedding portraits along with our desire to capture really candid moments. She also was a great source of support throughout the day, helping us keep to our timeline and facilitating all the necessary photos. During the reception, she maintained the perfect balance of being available, but not intrusive.

I echo other reviewers who mentioned they are fans of Emily Delamater Photography! I felt like I was in the presence of (the nicest, most humble) celebrity. It was an honor to have them photograph our day - Thank you Emily and Matt!!!

Oh, Emily Delamater, it was a dream come true to have you (and your husband, Matt!) photograph our wedding. I saw pictures of someone in a wedding and began following Emily Delamater Photography on Facebook in December 2013. As Emily posted more and more beautiful pictures on her page, I was amazed by the softness, brightness, beauty, calmness, happiness, love - she captured every single feeling you would want for your wedding pictures. As someone who absolutely LOVES pictures, it was everything I could have asked for and more. I didn't think we could ever afford or book Emily (since she is SO talented, popular, and in HIGH demand). Having her as a photographer was something I wished for, but didn't think was possible. Our friends started getting engaged and planning their weddings and we realized that if we didn't throw our wedding together this year, we probably wouldn't have another time to plan a wedding. So we reached out to Emily and planned our wedding date based on when she was available in November. Yes, she was THAT important to have. While the photography was definitely a hefty investment, especially as a graduate student (and both my husband and I are applying to more graduate school now), booking Emily is the one thing I know for sure I would never, ever, ever, ever change if I were to do my wedding again. Seriously, she's that good. And to be honest, if she was even more expensive, I would have sacrificed other aspects to have her. Because we planned the wedding in 2 months, we didn't have time to do the engagement shoot Emily offers as part of her packages. So we booked her and her husband for our bowling alley rehearsal dinner! My husband and I aren't the best posers - I'm the one who typically snaps all the pictures - so we felt a little awkward being the center of attention, so when we got our sneak peek, I was relieved that I loved the pictures and cannot wait to see the rest! I wish I could write more but I am out of space!

I can't say enough good thinks about working with Emily (and her husband Matt) for our wedding photography. Emily knew that my husband and I wanted to have a casual and relaxed atmosphere, and they certainly catered to that. All of our guests commented about how they felt relaxed around the photographers, as evident in all the great candid shots of the day.

Speaking of the photographs, we were blown away by the amazing shots Emily put together. The composition and quality of the shots are just stunning. She has a way of shooting brilliant pictures - evident in all of her work (that you should check out online).

This was a destination wedding, and due to scheduling and time constraints we were unable to get out to Maine for a meeting with Emily before the event. We were able to take care of everything online and over the phone, which was a major plus for us.

We highly recommend Emily's services to anyone who needs a photographer in the greater southern Maine area!

Emily is beyond amazing to work with. Her and her husband Matt make an excellent team and we can't thank them enough for all they're hard work! They're not only amazing people but are extremely talented photographers. We were blown away after getting our wedding images - they are all stunning and they capture all the perfect little moments that made up our wedding day. Her images are everything you would ever want your wedding photos to be, when you look at them it's like you get to re-live it all over again. I love the soft focus, natural lighting, candids, and more traditional shots too! I can't say enough about Emily and definitely recommend her services to everyone!
