This is the best wedding photographer that anyone could ever hire. We have so many fantastic photos of us at our wedding that it is really difficult to choose our favorites. We are not like our friends who want to pick one good picture. We have so many, in so many different settings. We were so lucky to have both Emily and Julie shoot our wedding. They made us feel at ease, they brought out our true personalities. There are no canned smiles. Emily had shot our engagement photos which helped us get used to her style. Her style was to let us be as we are as a couple naturally, with her capturing it, giving us tips to be more photogenic, but not forcing anything. Then at the wedding, we were nervous about the first look, but it was amazing. They set up a perfect setting in a meadow, and then allowed us to be with each other naturally as they took pictures. They posed us at times without it feeling posed, and only in poses that felt more like us. None of our pictures look like any of the other couple's pictures I have seen. The rest of the pictures were of them capturing these perfect moments when we did not think anyone was looking. They were fun, non-obtrusive, just a complete joy to work with. Everyone loved them. We had a lot of decor at our southern wedding and had spent one year planning, doing DIY, bringing furniture in, and so many details on our own, like our southern cake table with 6 regular cakes, all with their own cake topper. When it all came together we were overwhelmed trying to take it all in. Emily and Julie captured all of it, all of those touches. They captured our family and guests at their best. When we look at our pictures, the feeling of our wedding comes back. With some of our other bride friends, that only happens with video, even with the ultra expensive DC photographers. But they managed to do it with pictures that not only "tell" our wedding story, but transport us back to that day and the feel of that day. Christy and Adrianne
Our wedding photos are my absolutely favorite pick-me-up when I'm having a bad day. I look at them almost daily - and it's been 6 months! Emily and Julie were wonderful to work with - easygoing, fun, and patient with our large bridal party (and our crazy families!). They captured the emotion of the day in a way I never dreamed possible. I am so grateful we decided to go with them.
I LOVED working with Emily. She was referred to me by a friend and I could not be happier. She was so awesome and FUN to work with. I adore her!
TellChronicles did an amazing job with our engagement and wedding photos. These sisters have some real talent and capture the MOST BEAUTIFUL photos. Their style is to make the experience fun for everyone and you can really see it reflect in the photography. We would 100% recommend them for your wedding, engagement, or family photos. We'll definitely use their services in the future. Thanks!
I can't even begin to say how much I loved working with Tellchronicles. Emily did both our engagement and wedding day photos and I feel so lucky that she was with us to capture these important moments. Emily is an absolute joy to work with and to be around. In addition to being so sweet, kind, amazing and professional she is ridiculously talented. We are obsessed with our wedding photos and I literally cannot stop looking at them. Emily captured every single important moment on our big day and did it so beautifully. Thank you so much, Emily. We will cherish our photos forever. XOXO
Emily is the most wonderful wedding photographer you could ever wish for. She was supportive, helpful, funny, understanding, and enthusiastic throughout the whole process. My fiancee was dreading doing things like engagement pictures and portraits, but Emily made it so lighthearted and fun that he ended up really enjoying it. The pictures themselves have made everyone laugh and cry and smile. Absolutely beautiful.
Emily's photography speaks for it self. My jaw dropped when I saw my wedding photos (I got them pretty quickly too). She made my husband and I look like we were models! But as if that wasn't enough, Emily was so much fun to work with! She was so easy going yet professional and did a great job of getting us to loosen up during photos and keeping us relaxed on an incredibly stressful day. We would have thought that we were the only focus for the day but when we got the pictures back we saw that she caught so many other thoughtful details and interactions between guests that will be so precious to us as time goes on. Anyone can pick up a camera but Emily has that artistic eye that makes the difference between a mere record of the wedding and memorializing such a huge life event. Memory fades and I'm so glad that I can revisit the best day of my life through Emily's camera lens. You will not regret it if you book her!
From the moment we began our planning, up to the big day, Emily from Tell Chronicles was incredible to deal with! Her natural joy and enthusiasm is contagious! Her photography is an amazing work of art. She manages to capture the entire "story" of the wedding; from start to finish. Emily has a natural way of putting people at ease and it's reflected by the smiles in the pictures. As mother of the bride, I would recommend Tell Chronicles for any event worth having a picture of. I know that we will use them again!
I could not be any happier - I am a professional photographer myself, so having another photographer whose work I admired and respected was very important to me on my wedding. I didn't want to be sitting there thinking "I could have taken better wedding photos myself".
I met Emily at a local bridal show when I was walking around scouting all of the photographers. I was unimpressed by most of the vendors I saw at the show - their work was too generic and their poses were too forced. Tell, on the other hand, caused me to immediately stop and say "these people will photograph my wedding". Emily has a gift, one that cannot be taught, and her use of natural lighting in a scene is something I've rarely seen matched by other portrait photographers. I would have been willing to pay 3 times what I paid them because the prints where that fantastic.
Emily is also great to work with - she's very funny and was able to get genuine smiles rather than just asking us to say 'Cheese'. Let me stress how hard that is - after 10 minutes of forced smiling it becomes obvious in your photos, but every print Emily made has genuine smiles.
If you are looking for a wedding photographer, you have found the one you need. They will not disappoint and you're going to be thrilled you went with them. Photography is expensive, but it's one of the few things you'll take away from your wedding, so it's one of those areas where it's worth spending a few extra bucks. Emily and Tell did such a great job, I'd be willing to stake my own professional reputation on endorsing them!
Emily was an amazing photographer, everyone I spoke with after the wedding had only good things to say about her. We received the pictures promptly and they turned out wonderful. Emily's pictures weren't just any pictures, she was able to capture the moment. The package included: 8 hours of pictures, you receive all the pictures in digital, and you get a nice album afterward for a very reasonable price. I would recommend tell. to anyone who asks for a wedding photographer.
Emily was AMAZING! She is incredibly talented and has the ability to make anyone look like a model! She is very professional but super fun! She really listens to what you want, and is super accommodating and flexible. My engagement photos and wedding photos turned out beautiful. I will absolutely recommend her to all of my friends and use her again when we have little ones and need family portraits :)
We knew we had found the right photographer at our first meeting with Emily. She is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and professional. She always returns phone calls and e-mails right away. She made us feel comfortable and was easy to work with. And most importantly, we love our photos!! We look forward to working with Emily and tell. again in the future!
I can't even put in the words how much we love both our engagement and wedding pictures! Emily captured all the love and happiness of the day. My husband and I HATE getting our pictures taken and usually avoid doing so, but we can't stop looking at every amazing picture Emily captured!
Tell. Photography captured our engagement photos and OMG they were gorgeous! I received so many compliments :) I was so nervous for no reason- Emily did an amazing job making us feel very comfortable and was a great director the entire time! She has a very good eye for poses and the background scene! I recommend Tell. to everyone I know!
My fiance hired Tell. for our engagement photos- I really hate taking pictures & my fiance loves it but Emily made it fun for us.. I'm not an expert on photos but ours turned it really nice- all of our family & friends were very impressed!
Tell. was amazing to work with! They had great suggestions on engagement picture locations and made my fiancé and I feel so comfortable in front the camera. The pictures turned out beautifully and I look forward to working with them for our wedding!
