We are natural light photographers located in the Tampa Bay area. We use both film and digital cameras to capture your wedding with a timeless, fine art approach.
We adore details and love when a couple pours their hearts and souls into making their wedding resonate with their story.
As your photographers, our priority is taking the best photos possible, which is why we created our one wedding package with you in mind.
We’re yours for the whole day, providing you with as many beautiful memories as we can, with the hope that you’ll see our images as a part of your life and a tangible piece of your love story.
Our package comes with all the bells and whistles. We also provide some killer brunches, lattes and puppy kisses (invaluable, in our eyes) along the way.
This is due in large part to the price of film, which can be hefty – but is oh so worth it! That said, the best aspects of the work we do are hearing unique stories, meeting amazing people and capturing love that can move mountains. We seek out couples whose weddings embody these ideas.
Occasionally, I (Emily) shoot smaller events by myself, which comes with a less hefty price tag (dang, Thomas is high maintenance).
Perhaps you’re thinking “Film?” Yes, we use film cameras (like what our parents used decades ago)! If you dig the images on our site or Instagram, then we’ve got news for you – they’re all film!
Film captures dreamy, superior-quality photos in a way digital photos just can’t replicate. That said, we use both types of cameras for wedding days to keep up with the fast-paced environment.
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.

The talent and passion that they have for photography shines through their beautiful images. They capture the story that is uniquely you. My husband and I love nature and the outdoors, and Emily and Thomas could shoot for National Geographic the way they capture the nature in the background of our shots.

Emily and Thomas’ talent is obvious from their website galleries and rave reviews— but what truly sets them apart is how genuine and helpful they are throughout the planning process and on the big day!

The Ganeys were professional but also fun – they put us at ease being photographed (one part of the wedding process I’d particularly dreaded), and we became friends (Emily truly works to build relationships). Several of our wedding guests complimented Emily and Thomas for somehow managing to be everywhere at once and for their happiness to be a part of the celebration.
Emily and Thomas are professional, talented and kind-hearted photographers who went to immeasurable lengths to meet the needs of my husband and I. They helped not only with our photography, but also gave wedding advice when needed. They set up a timeline for our big day and made us feel like someone who knew what they were doing was in our corner. To top it off, their talent is second to none.
Albums are a beautiful way for you to cherish your wedding for years to come. These are your first family heirlooms. These are the pages that your children and grandchildren will look through. We offer a variety of beautiful albums and would be happy to show them off!
A wedding typically includes about 100 edited images per hour of coverage. If we spend 8 hours with you on your wedding day, expect around 800 images. 10 hours of coverage? Expect around 1,000 images. The image count depends on a few factors, such as if you opt to do a first look.
We love laid back couples. We love couples that know their day will be perfect, in all kinds of weather. Our favorites couples are affectionate and filled with joy. Our brides aren’t afraid to get their dress a little dirty. Our couples are kind souls. And above all, they make their own love a priority for the day.
Absolutely! Invite us some place! We keep a map above our bed and we put a pin in it whenever we take photos in a new spot! We’ve done sessions all over the US and even in Canada and South Africa (what??). For real - let’s talk about doing your engagement session some place fun!
