our belief as San Diego
wedding photographers

We believe in dreaming big, living slow, exploring, relishing in great company, sipping good wine (and tasty microbrew!) and embracing life. We’re here for the laughter and love, ugly crying, care-free adventures, parties on the dance floor, tipsy grandmas, bad dance moves, romantic gestures and capturing moments on camera that will last a lifetime.

The day we received our photos was just as exciting as the wedding itself!

…Emily and Ryan captured our day perfectly! They saw so many little details that we would have never seen. I can’t say enough good things about them!”

Based out of sunny San Diego, CA

… we are Emily and Ryan Burhop, the husband and wife team behind the award-winning Emry Photography studio in San Diego, California.

Between us we’ve had cameras in hand for more than 20 years capturing more than 200 couples’ unique stories of love and celebration in San Diego, CA and throughout Southern California. These couples have helped us be recognized as recipients of Best of The Knot and Wedding Wire’s People’s Choice awards for the past five consecutive years.

The responsibility and trust placed in us to photograph a wedding day is a gesture we continue to be humbled by. From the first look to the last dance (and everything before and in between), we’ll be there—because the best wedding photos are from the moments you least expect but never want to forget. And we don’t want to miss a thing!

love notes

  • The photos were beautiful and full of emotion.

    “…On the day of the wedding Emily and Ryan were on top of it, along with their videographer Adam. The 3 of them worked together so flawlessly. Their passion for what they do is evident, and their natural talent for capturing all the special moments is amazing. We laughed with them, cried with them and joked with them. If they weren’t there as our photographers, I would have wanted them there as friends. Our wedding night flew by, just like everyone warned us it would, but I was comforted to know that every moment was captured by Emily and Ryan and that we would forever be able to relive our special day… ”

  • they captured our day so effortlessly

    “They were the perfect duo… rarely seen or heard, but apart of the action at every step. I loved working with a couple because they offset each other and complement each other so well. Not to mention that they are absolute sweethearts but still super professional and serve a great product.”

    Alexandra + Eric

  •  They didn’t miss one little detail and their pictures tell the whole story from the day!

    “…You would never imagine some of the pictures they get but they just know how much it means to have detail from a day that goes by so quick! They are awesome people that will not disappoint! If you are looking for photographers, don’t look any further and go with them!!!”

    Kaylee + Roman

  • they are more than what we could have ever dreamed of

    “They have made both my fiance and myself feel like we are their only clients through this whole process. Emily and Ryan have wonderful personalities, and I truly feel they are our friends instead of just a photography vendor. We actually enjoyed to spending our whole wedding day together with them. With all of the stresses we have to go through planning a wedding, I never once had any fear or anxiety with their service. ”
