There was no one else I wanted as my wedding photographer for my southern Californian wedding other than Emily Ku. She is so sweet to work with and has a knack for capturing a couple at their happiest moments. She is very funny to be around and in general makes me feel like myself. She enabled me and my husband (who doesn't like photos!) to enjoy ourselves while getting photographed at our wedding!

She was so not intrusive during the wedding ceremony and yet she got every intricate moment of our wedding and captured all the symbolic moments, I did not notice her but in looking at the photos, I felt like I was right there.

Emily's handling of the color and light in our photos is very airy and happy. She also surprised us with a fun slideshow with our photos. She is very patient and listened to all of my ideas (I have many... as I'm a professional photographer as well) and was thorough and flexible throughout the day.

I look at my wedding photographs all the time and I feel like I'm brought straight back to all the beauty that represented that day. If you want to feel that way in looking back at your photos, hire Emily!

It's taken us a while to get around to writing this review but I hope people find it useful and go ahead with having photography done by Emily. We booked her based on some recommendations for our Las Vegas Wedding. She skyped with us prior to the day and we really felt that she gave us a lot of her time which meant we could get to know each other before we met up in Vegas. When we arrived Emily visited us at the hotel for lunch to further discuss exactly what we wanted out of the photos. She was professional and gave expert advice, we really felt like we knew her and trusted her fully. The big day came and Emily met us at the chapel. She took some photos there and then we travelled to the ghost town, which was a perfect setting. It was VERY hot and Emily came prepared with cold towls, water and popsicles! We loved the photo shoot. We are not models and felt awkward to start with but Emily helped us achieve some stunning photos, we will forever be grateful! We highly recommend her for photography!

My husband and I were so happy with Emily and all the amazing photos she took of our wedding. She takes beautiful photographs and she is wonderful to work with. We were unable to have Emily take photos of our ceremony since we were getting married in a casino so she came before the ceremony to photograph us getting ready and then met us after the ceremony at our reception. Our wedding was late and our reception started around 10:30pm on a Saturday night, but Emily came out late and stayed until after midnight making sure she got all the photos we wanted. The next day my husband and I wanted some photos of just us and Emily took us to some amazing places off the strip and the photos came out perfect! She knows how to make anyone look their best. Emily is easy to be around, friendly, a true professional and gives you a lot for your money. We so enjoyed working with her and would definitely recommend Emily to anyone.

Emily did an amazing job on our engagement photos. Since we're both kinda recent newbies to Vegas she understood my need to have a non-Vegas vibe to our photos. We picked a great location and ended up having a great time. She's super easy to get along with and really values what you have to say in terms of photo styles. She really made us feel comfortable on the day of our shoot and it made our photos turn out fabulously. When it came time for her to put our book together she had a ton of different ideas and ways to do it. We trusted her to pick the best photos to put in the album and not only did we love it but it was a hit at our reception. She put little questions in there for people to answer which everyone loved, it was different than the traditional engagement signing book. We loved working with her and would totally recommend her to other people!!

We found Emily Ku Photography through a mutual friend. It was great, we didn't even bother searching for others, especially after browsing through her website. We liked her style, very natural and the pictures did allow the true emotion of the subjects to come through.

I absolutely love the pictures that Emily took for us! They were very natural. My husband and I were never very good models (hey, how many of us are models who know how to pose anyway?!), but Emily really got us to relax to take some nice pictures. She understood our needs very well and catered to what we really wanted. It's good to have a photographer who has a professional opinion but you also want someone who is willing to work with you.

Emily is very helpful and very friendly. In fact, we have kept in touch since the wedding too! She does have a day job and so, you might need to discuss with her for time schedule etc.

The fee Emily charges is reasonable and she does quite a lot for the price you pay. She is more like a friend on the set rather than just a photographer which is rather nice....


Emily is honest and she would explain what each product (what type of album, what type of print etc....) would be suitable for us. We got the leather-bound album with rigid prints. The album was gorgeous and I absolutely loved the natural, not-too-posy pictures. The album was of very good quality and the colours of the pictures were beautiful. (not cheap, but I know for the quality, this is well worth it! It's only a once in a life time thing and so, I would rather that the album lasts forever and not go bendy after 5 years....)

Emily photographed our wedding reception. She has a great eye for capturing all the important moments, even behind the scenes. She talked with us to make sure it was clear what was important to us for her to capture. She's really friendly and cheerful and easy to work with- she was really responsive and answered all our phone calls/emails right away. The disc she mailed us was very professional and we love all the photos. We can't wait to have an occasion to use her again.
