Emily & Thomas Ganey

As a husband and wife team, we are driven by capturing real moments and documenting love stories in an organic way. Some of our favorite aspects of our job are hearing unique stories, meeting amazing people and capturing love that can move mountains. We seek out couples whose weddings embody these ideas. We’re inspired by authenticity and adventure, and as your photographers we’ll rejoice in celebrated moments and tear up during emotional ones. If our images become a piece of your future – a lasting, tangible memory of your most beautiful day – then we’ve done our job. 



We’re excited you’ve dropped by and that you’re considering us AS YOUR PHOTOGRAPHERS!

I've always loved photography. Whether I was driving to summer camp in Vermont or flying to study abroad in London or China, my camera always made the trip with me. My friends and family seemed to realize this was more than just a passion project for me. I have to thank Thomas for encouraging me to start this business, even though nothing seemed more terrifying at the time. After more than 100 weddings, I still jump out of bed each morning with a smile on my face. I feel incredibly fortunate I get to do what I love and interact with incredible people every day.  I still can't believe it!

I'm a jeans and a t-shirt kind of girl - but my aspirational wardrobe on Pinterest is filled with Anthropologie. I would like to think I'm a plant lady, but let's be real, they're all struggling a bit. I was never a big TV person until one of my brides shared her streaming account. After that, I managed to watch all 14 seasons of Grey's in less than a year. Current binge-worthy show? Younger! My perfect weekend would consist of conquering an escape room (or a cooperative board game, like Pandemic), hiking along a lake with the pups, and getting lost in a Jodi Picoult book. And, probably crossing an item or two off my to do list. I'm a doer!

OUR PHOTO ALBUM

With Emily's help, I've been able to to turn a longtime hobby into a wonderful weekend adventure (the first day we met I impressed her with photos of lightening I took during a thunderstorm...just kidding...she wasn't impressed..). The most rewarding aspect of this business is becoming friends with the people we meet - truly, we've met some fantastic couples that we still connect with regularly.

During the week, I work in finance, which allows me to express my nerdy side. Within that thread, Emily likes to say I know a little about a lot of things. Living in California has been a dream of mine since 2014 when I took a road trip through Big Sur while Emily was at a photography workshop. I'm thrilled that I can call the bay area home now - partially because of all of the amazing hikes close by - and also because snowboarding is so accessible. I hope to hike the pacific crest trail one day. Getting lost in Costco trying samples, eating at a new local restaurant, tossing the frisbee with the pups, and playing Overwatch on Xbox are some of my other favorite pastimes.

Traveling to new places has been a huge bonus for us, too. The map above our bed has scattered pins for every place we’ve been along this journey, and we’re always looking to put the next one up. We’ll work with couples as much as we can to make that happen.

See where we've been

We have a goal to shoot an engagement session or wedding in every state in the US. It sounds crazy, but we love a little adventure!

Are you ready to learn more?
