Em is just incredible to work with! She makes you feel not only comfortable in front of the camera, but she also makes you feel confident! She will be your hype girl during the entire session and make sure that you’re having a great time. Em is super creative and artistic with her shots, but is also amazing at staging the more typical poses. We had such a fun time with her that even my fiancé said he was super excited to see the results, which we LOVED! We so look forward to working with Em again and highly recommend her to anyone looking for an excellent photographer who will make you feel beautiful (even on the hottest, super humid days lol)

We absolutely LOVE Em!! My family and I have worked with Em multiple times. She has been amazing with our son. She had never worked with babies so young before, but you would never know! She captures his personality through every picture and we are so grateful! Also, her communication and turnaround time is unbeatable! We will continue to use Em for our future milestones and updated family pictures. We can’t recommend her enough!

I had the pleasure of having Emily take my engagement and wedding pictures. She is energetic, easy-going and captures intimate moments with a comfortable feel. I have recommended her to friends and family and will be requesting Emily’s photography services for all my future occasions.

My fiance and I recently got our engagement photos taken by Em Staley Photography and saying I'm in love with our photos is an understatement. I was lost for words when she sent me our sneak peaks and I saw how amazing the photos turned out. Emily was Professional, Fun, Easy to work with, and made us feel very comfortable the whole time during our engagement shoot. I would recommend her to anyone and look forward to using her again in the future!

Emily is simply the best and so nice to work with! My 5 year old daughter literally met her for the first time at our 15 minute mini session and was calling Emily her new BFF by the time we left 😊 And the photos? Freaking gorgeous. Literally ordered my Christmas cards the second we got our gallery back (which was a super quick turnaround time!). And I couldn’t just choose one, two, or even three photos for our Christmas cards. I narrowed it down to 6 photos and got a folding card so I could put more photos on it! I was so happy with the quality and the amount of photos she was able to capture during just a mini session! Highly recommend!!!
