We are natural light wedding photographers located in the San Francisco bay area. We use both film and digital cameras to capture your wedding with a timeless, fine art approach. We adore working with couples that invite us into their wedding as "family" - allowing us to capture authentic genuine moments as they unfold.
We are inspired by details and love when a couple pours their hearts and souls into making their wedding resonate with their story.
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.
Thomas and I work together to capture your day seamlessly. We utilize both film and digital cameras to document your day, capturing moments in a soft, romantic, warm style.
Occasionally, I (Emily) photograph smaller events by myself. I offer a la carte pricing for these types of events.
Perhaps you’re thinking “Film?” Yes, we use film cameras (like what our parents used decades ago)!
Film is a medium that allows us to capture moments in a soft, romantic, warm style that digital photos just can’t replicate. That said, we’re hybrid photographers, using both film and digital cameras throughout your wedding day to keep up with the fast-paced environment - allowing us to capture all of the in-between moments.
We've had our business for more than 10 years and we've photographed over 175 weddings. Our couples are what motivate us. We work hard to capture timeless, authentic, joyful photographs. We are detail oriented. We partake in a balanced dance on the wedding day - providing direction and prompts to capture frame-worthy portraits while also focusing our attention on those brief candid moments that are unfolding in front of us.
I am extremely organized and passionate about what I do. I love partnering with couples and planners to ensure that I'm as prepared as I can be for a wedding - focusing on what matters most to the couple. Thomas and I work together seamlessly. He knows how to anticipate my needs. We make a great pair - while I'm keeping my eyes out for the good light and anticipating moments, Thomas provides a level of comfort that allows couples to let their guard down. We truly love this career and the people we meet. We feel so fortunate for this journey.

As your photographers, our priority is documenting your day in the best way possible, which is why we created our one wedding package with you in mind.
When we started our business, we knew we were going to partake in memorable events. What we didn’t realizewas that our lives would be touched by so many incrediblepeople. Our couples that we’ve photographed have truly become some of our closest friends!
We’ve had game nights, shared meals, played at the dog park, traveled abroad, defeated escape rooms, gone skiing (Emily) and snowboarding (Thomas), hiked numerous mountains, attended baby showers and truly developed relationships with so many of our couples. They mean so much to us.
When I received our photos back all I could think was how happy they were - nothing seemed forced or staged. Their photography truly is effortless in the best possible way. And with that being said, you can tell how much effort they truly put forward to achieve this result. My mom’s word to describe Emily is “meticulous.”
Their attentiveness to detail and overall experience allowed us to have a stress free day that was beautifully photographed. Emily was a critical part of our whole process, working incredibly with all our vendors and family/friends. When we received our photos they were beyond anything we could have ever dreamed. Hire Emily & Thomas, it will be the best decision you can make.
The Ganeys are hilarious, have an incredible eye, are always responsive and have the best work ethic of any vendor I have worked with. They consistently checked in, did things outside their scope of work and went above & beyond in every single aspect of the entire process. The amount of time that E&T put into our big day prior to, on and after the big day makes them an incredible value.
Emily is so kind, thoughtful, and talented as a photographer, and Thomas is the secret ingredient that makes grooms everywhere feel at ease!
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 (they truly work 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.
When my husband and I first looked through all of the photos from our wedding day, it felt like I was gasping with every picture. All of our bridal party and family commented on how amazing these two are, and how they seemed to be everywhere at once. They are so genuinely warm and made everyone feel really comfortable
We love laid back couples. We love couples that know their day will be perfect, in all kinds of weather. Our favorite couples are affectionate and filled with joy. Our brides aren’t afraid to get their dress a little dirty. Our couples are kind souls. Photography is a large priority for our couples, but above all, they make their own love the priority of the day.
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.
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!
Above all, we want to make sure we are a great fit our couples - that our personalities and styles align. We'll be spending a lot of time together and we want to make sure you cherish your photos.
