“They captured so many little details that we would have never seen”

“We feel so lucky to have the chance to work with EMRY. Ryan and Emily are 2 of the nicest, professional people we have ever met. They made the journey a little easier. If you are like me then you find searching for vendors a little overwhelming. After our 1st conversation with them, my worry went away. We had an instant connection with them. Talking to them felt like we were talking to life long friends. We booked our engagement session with them along with a make trial. Emily did an amazing job and we couldn’t be happier with our photos. We couldn’t wait for the wedding. Throughout our journey of wedding planning they often checked in to see how planning was and if they could help in anyway. They have a great blog and offer everything from style tips to signature cocktails! It was refreshing that we didn’t just feel like another client. They took the time to get to know us and our wedding style. They were nothing short of amazing on the wedding day. We were fortunate that they worked our venue many times so they got right to work. Even when we got a little behind they made adjustments to make sure we still had great picture opportunities! Our guests were also impressed with how hard they worked and how they were all over making sure to get every detail! When we received our photos was just as exciting as the wedding itself. They captured our day perfectly! They captured so many little details that we would have never seen. I can’t say enough good things about them. If you are planning your wedding, Congrats! And know you will not be disappointed if you book EMRY!”

In Good Hands

“Made every shot count”

“I just wanted to say thank you so much for everything yesterday!!! Ryan captured my wedding day so perfectly, he was patient he was kind & full of ideas. He & his wife Emily went for it in every picture no matter the angle or lighting they made every shot count & every minute taking pictures worth it. It was so easy to work with them & knowing that capturing my wedding day was in good hands. Ryan was amazing getting all the good shots & making sure we got to enjoy the reception as well as capture some intimate newlywed shots. His wife Emily was amazing I’m so glad she was able to stay the full day she was the MVP of the night constantly fixing my dress in every picture we took she was awesome! Adam the videography was amazing as well I hardly even noticed he was there filming! you guys make an amazing team! In 1 week we received a sneak peek of our wedding pictures a few of their favorites & then 2 weeks later we got our full wedding gallery online to view. Then just a day later our wedding photos were delivered on a personalized EmryPhotography usb. Thank you for everything you guys were amazing!”

“Amazing pictures to keep as memories for the rest of our lives”

“Ryan and Emily were an absolute joy to work with. They took both our engagement and wedding photos and we are so thrilled we have these amazing pictures to keep as memories for the rest of our lives! On our wedding day, Ryan was such a joy. He made us both feel comfortable and relaxed and really wrangled the whole family to get the pictures done quickly (which was an insanely difficult tasks knowing both are families were huge!). We had one request to make it to the last 10 minutes of our cocktail party – and he pulled it off!! Nothing but amazing things to say – highly recommend!”

Best Decision I Made

“Went above and beyond to capture our wedding”

“Hiring EMRY to be our wedding photographer was the best decision I made. Ryan was knowledgeable, helpful and went above and beyond to capture our wedding. I was surprised at how responsive he was on answering questions before the wedding and how quickly we got our photos in. My friends and family are in awe over his work and have been asked by several for his contact information. Whatever venue you pick, pick EMRY to do your photography.”

“Beautifully crafted, artistically awesome photos”
“Ryan and Kevin were absolutely fantastic! We are so glad we found them and were so lucky they were available for our wedding day. Their style is exactly what we were looking for – beautifully crafted, artistically awesome photos. They captured every special moment from the day and were so incredibly unobtrusive you barely knew they were there. They were professional and easy to work with, and we felt they really captured our personalities and style well in their images. We love the photos so much, and would 100% recommend them.”

1000/10 Recommend
“They’re so sweet and I love them to pieces!”
“My wedding coordinator suggested I use Ryan as my photographer and I don’t regret it! He’s a talented photographer indeed. When I was looking for a photographer, everyone was priced at about $3k. Ryan’s prices are very reasonable. His wife, Emily, is a makeup artist. I’m not really into make up so I didn’t know really what I wanted to look like except for eye make up. I looked great in the pictures (not to toot my own horn lol). Emily uses great make up products and it lasts even into the next day! The way my husband and my story is told on the Facebook page I feel really captures US and it was so great to read. 1000/10 recommend Ryan and Emily for pictures and make up. They’re so sweet and I love them to pieces!”

“a highly artistic style”
“Ryan and his second shooter captured our special day in the most beautiful way! I am thrilled with how great all of the photos came out. He got so many amazing shots of things that I missed and was oblivious to being the busy bride. He captured all of the most important moments of our ceremony and reception with a highly artistic style. They were very professional, non intrusive and was apparent how hard they were working. But they always had a smile on their face. The only problem is that I now have too many GREAT photos to choose from to display in my home. 🙂 But a dilemma I will embrace happily. Thank you so much EMRY!”

“The candid ones are unparalleled”
“I can’t say enough great things about Ryan and Emry Photography! Ryan shot both our engagement and wedding, and both turned out amazing. His attention to detail and eye for catching the important moments, and the candid ones are unparalleled. If you are looking for a photographer to take your photos to the next level, then Emry Photography is the right fit for you. I loved his use of bright vibrant colors and just having the best “eye” for the right shots to take. My husband doesn’t LOVE getting his photo taken so he made sure it was a simple and painless process for him as well, which I’m grateful for! As the other reviewers stated, Ryan is very professional, arrived on time, took the exact shots I wanted and listened to my specific requests and got them done. I am so thankful that Emry captured our wedding day. THANK YOU EMRY PHOTOGRAPHY!”

“One of the best decisions we made!”
“Emry Photography is amazing! My husband and I are beyond thrilled and thankful that we chose Ryan as our photographer for our special day. Ryan and his assistant photographed our wedding on July 1, 2017 at Aviation Vineyards in Temecula. Ryan is professional, punctual, always there to answer any questions, and super friendly. He had great ideas and his attention to detail is incredible! We were so happy the day of, but even more overjoyed now that we were able to see all the memories he captured for us! His work is unbelievable! Ryan and his team are exceptional and one of the best decisions we made! I highly recommend Ryan and Emry Photography!”

“My perfect dream”
“Ryan from Emry Photography was absolutely amazing! He is a phenomenal photographer and took pictures that I couldn’t even have imagined in my perfect dream. He was on time, professional, and friendly! He wasn’t intrusive but I think he actually has mutant shape-shifting powers to transform into walls lol. His pictures are not the standard “prom” looking pictures but individually artistically crafted! I highly highly recommend Ryan and Emry Photography! He perfectly captured our fairy tale wedding!”

“The photos were more then I ever dreamed of”
“My husband and I live in Kansas and decided to do a destination wedding in San Diego. From the moment we had a phone call with Ryan to discuss pricing, photography style and what we were looking for, we knew we were going to choose EMRY. We decided to come to San Diego in advance of our wedding to plan a few things and take engagement photos. We actually met Ryan at a bar and had a beer and chatted before taking photos which really helped to lighten the mood for our first professional photos. Our engagement photos turned out INCREDIBLE and were more than I had ever dreamed of. Since it was a destination wedding, Ryan put me in contact with the other half of EMRY, his wife Emily. Emily was able to do my make-up for the wedding and provided a hairstylist for me as well. My hair and make-up turned out perfect! I could go on and on about how amazing our wedding photos turned out and how many compliments we have gotten on them but I’ll take this time to focus on what a great professional Ryan is. He was prompt in responding to my (many) questions and provided a questionnaire for the big day which was very well thought out. Our wedding had a few hiccups before starting the ceremony and Ryan took it upon himself to get things under control, calm the panicked bride down, and make sure everything was set up perfectly. That was not in our contract at all, but EVERY person that was at the venue noticed that he went out of his way to help out and we can’t thank him enough for that! We are soo happy that we chose EMRY and would recommend them to anyone!”

Couldn’t be Happier
“Captured some authentic, genuine moments ”
“Ryan and his team are amazing! I was so lucky to have found Emry Photography and I hired them to do my Engagement Pictures and Wedding Pictures. After our first meeting I knew he was going to be an awesome guy and now I just wanted his pictures to speak for themselves. Starting with our engagement pictures, Ryan was very helpful with giving me ideas for unique settings and places. He was a great communicator with quick response. All in all our engagement pictures were beautiful. I got so many great comments, not only on the pictures, but also the style they were shot. Since my wedding was only a week and a half ago, I don’t have all of them, but Ryan gave me 15 sneak peak pictures and from what I can see, they are to die for. <3 <3

I hired 2 photographers for the wedding and his partner was just as great. They have great energy and make you feel very comfortable. They also had a lot of different ideas, and were open for some quick off-roading to a random tractor we found on a hill 🙂 I would recommend EMRY Photography to anyone who needs any kind of pictures. He is an amazing, experienced photographer with a great price. He was worth every penny! I couldn’t have asked for any better pictures. We will be back when it’s time for maternity photos! *Another great thing, is that EMRY Photography also partners with a video production team and will give you a deal for using them both. I would definitely recommend that*

Ryan and his team really captured some authentic, genuine moments on my special day, and I couldn’t be happier!!”
