Emily’s approach to wedding photography is artistic reality ~ a “photojournalist” style incorporating utility and creativity by artfully capturing moments as they happen.
The majority of Emily’s wedding photographs are candid, natural, and spontaneous. As most couples would like some traditional portraits from their wedding day, we do offer up to two hours of planned, posed photography. Offering both candid and formal portraits gives a complete record of your wedding, including both the people you would like captured and the moments that unravel as the day progresses. All wedding packages include a pre-wedding style consultation, to make sure that Emily’s vision matches yours.
Emily Rumsey is the primary photographer, but all wedding packages include a minimum of three hours coverage with a second photographer. The second photographer provides a second set of eyes (and hands) during a busy wedding day, and ensures that there is visual variety of angles during the wedding ceremony.
Emily Rumsey Photography releases photo print rights to all wedding clients. This means that you will receive a disk of finished images, and you can have your photos printed at the photo store of your choice. (You are not required to buy your wedding prints through Emily Rumsey Photography). High quality photo stores will produce a significantly better product than discount photo stores, and we are happy to make local store recommendations.
All wedding clients receive a private online photo gallery, so that sharing photos with family and friends is both easy and stylish. There is a shopping cart and slideshow feature in the photo gallery, so that family and friends will be able to purchase their favorite images or view the whole event.
As one family member recently wrote to us, “I found it particularly innovative that you created a website with a slideshow of the wedding photographs, allowing [the bride and groom] to give the URL to friends and family. It was quite nice that everyone could purchase whichever photos they liked most.”
The best way to artistically archive your wedding is with a professionally designed wedding album. Emily Rumsey Photography provides wedding photo books that showcase your favorite images with elegant layouts and high quality printing. Please view sample books by visiting our bookstore.
“I couldn’t attend the wedding because I live in Phoenix, AZ. Your skillful combination of portraits and candid shots really made me feel as though I was there. I saw your great use of backgrounds, and the subtle use of natural framing in nearly every picture. Your mixture of color and B&W also added much to the slideshow. Thank you for doing such a tremendous job at my nephew’s wedding.” ~ Phil, Uncle of a Wedding Client
