Im one of those people that doesnt like my photo taken, i just never like my photos. We knew when selecting our wedding photographer we needed to stress this to the one we chose. We searched and searched...we came across Emma Cleary's photos amd immedistely fell in love with her talent. The day of our engagement shoot i was so nervous. How akward is this going to be hating most every photo im in? Well to my surprise once we received our photos there were so many great candid shots i had a hard time just picking one for our save the dates. Bashful or not this is the photographer you want, Emma's talent is beyond the average and she is wonderful and very flexible to work with.

If you want a photographer with an amazing artistic eye, who will capture you at your best on your wedding day.... hire Emma Cleary.

Emma and her team photographed our wedding in Central Park last Friday. Emma is extremely professional and well-organized, such that I barely noticed she was there during the 'getting ready phase.' The first look and family photos were seamless and very fun!

Emma has already shared the proofs with us and the photos are just amazing - works of art! As my sister said, there is an artistic suprise in nearly every picture! Based on the direction that Emma was giving during the 'first look' and 'family photos', she and Aaron truly captured us at our very very best! Because the team included two photographers and one assistant, we have a wonderful mix of posed and candid photos.

Professional, artistic, and prompt!

Emma and team (she had two other colleagues) were Awesome!! As a groom who is not a fan of pictures, they were extremely professional and very easy to work with. They were quick and did not waste time, but also not rushed. We both were running late but Emma was very calm and helped us get all the locations my bride wanted in Central Park. During the reception, you knew they were there but they really mixed in well with the guests, almost as if they were part of festivities. I think this helped them capture all the key moments of the ceremony and festivities. They did a great job of including all the guest shots we asked for as well. I just showed the initial results to my family and they were blown away by her work. Very professional and extremely high quality results at a reasonable price.

From the moment we met Emma to our post-wedding exchanges she has been nothing but professional and dedicated to her craft. Prior to our wedding day she was always prompt when it came to answering our questions and we had nothing but trust in her. On the day of the wedding Emma and Massimo got right down to business and despite the rain, multiple lighting changes and various locations they adapted and didn’t let anything get in the way of them getting a great shot! When we received our wedding photos we were thrilled! Emma captured every single detail and it allowed us to relive our wedding from start to finish. Emma also retouched all of our pictures making them look flawless. She had an ability to capture all of the little candid moments, without us even knowing she was taking a picture, therefore the photos felt so natural and are beautiful. We would highly recommend Emma and her team to anyone!

We spent a long time researching photographers before contacting Emma, and couldn't be happier with our decision. Emma is incredibly professional and timely (which is notable when talking about any vendor in the wedding business), and her attention to detail is evident in not only her photography but in her email correspondence. Her photos are all quite beautiful (the main reason why we contacted her to begin with), and she truly captured the spirit of the day.

I have to say that I was very, very picky in picking my wedding photographer and met with a few different people. After meeting with Emma, I couldn't stop thinking about how much I loved her work and knew I had to hire her for our wedding ASAP and I am SO HAPPY that I did. Aside from capturing the important pictures of me and my husband, she got a lot of great pictures of things I never got to see the day of and I felt like I was reliving our wedding day through her pictures which is exactly how it should be. Emma is a natural - she has never been to my venue before and was still able to find the best spots for pictures. Emma was easy to communicate with leading up to the big day and was even able to respond to my (many) emails when she was halfway around the world. We had a big wedding, 240 people, and Emma & Massimo (second photographer) did a great job, everyone is blown away by the pictures. This won't be the last time we use Emma for our events.

Our wedding was held at Jericho Terrace in Mineola, NY and we took pictures prior at the Old Westbury Gardens.Emma was great from start to finish! Staying on top of every email correspondence and submitting insurance documentation promptly. We really appreciated the fact that our photographers had done a lot of research on the venues prior to our wedding day and was so well prepared. Aaron and Dimitri coordinated our "first look" shots and were so easy to work with. They really made me feel at ease( which is huge for a bride!). Our day was filled with so many emotions; laughter, tears of joy, and a seriously high energy dance party reception!! It was hard to imagine how this would all translate into photos, and without a doubt my husband and I are beyond pleased with the outcome. As we went through our photos we found ourselves experiencing and reliving all the joy and emotion of our day. The photos were incredible!! We are so happy we made the decision to go with Emma Cleary photography. These memories will truly last a lifetime!

We used Emma Cleary for our wedding and I have to say she far exceeded our expectations. Emma was prompt, kind and organised – she stayed on top of things both prior to our wedding and on our wedding day. Emma was extremely professional, and her presence was very relaxed and supportive. We cannot even begin to describe how perfect our photos are. Emma took many artistic shots, elegant photos with beautiful backgrounds as well as candid shots. The photos were natural yet breathtaking beautiful. We were amazed at how Emma was able to capture the unscripted moments; it was great to see the photos of the guests enjoying themselves as much as we did. We have never had so many compliments on photos. Her work speaks leaps and bounds for itself. We are so lucky we found her, you will not be disappointed!

Emma Cleary and her team are simply amazing! My husband and I are so pleased with her work! I met Emma three years ago when I had a photo session with her for my new head shots. My head shots came out fantastic! I was so happy with the results. When my husband and I started planning our wedding, I knew we had to have Emma shoot our special day! Fortunately for us, she was available! Emma was always so responsive and extremely professional. She always answered all of my questions and I always received super quick responses from her. I knew we were in good hands. The day of our wedding, Emma and her team arrived right on time and got to work right away. They were so professional and made us feel comfortable. The angles and shots captured of our wedding day were beautiful! Emma made sure all of our shot requests were fulfilled! Emma and her team were very discreet in their approach and most of the time we didn't even know they were there!

We got our digital prints less than 2 weeks after our wedding! We were amazed at how quickly we received them! As soon as we chose our pictures for our albums, she immediately got to work on it! Our highlight reel is perfect and she managed to creatively incorporate our wedding theme. We can’t wait to see the full video!

If you are looking for a wonderful photographer/videographer who is professional and talented, look no further than Emma Cleary!
