We had a great experience working with Becky. They were very professional from start to finish. Their price is very reasonable and provided good value. We don't consider ourselves photogenic and usually don't like pictures of ourselves. Considering this, I enjoy looking back at our pictures and could do so for hours. I would recommend them.

I saw my coworker's photographs from her wedding and I knew that Becky was the right photographer for us! Weddings are once in a lifetime, and she and Josh captured it in a way that made us look like we belong on a cover of a magazine. The photos are artistic and tasteful, definitely what we wanted to have for the rest of our lives.

Becky was very sweet and I felt very comfortable with her immediately, which is something you want with a photographer. She is extremely professional and has an amazing eye. I loved how she captured the emotion on our special day. I highly recommend her!

Professional Network & Endorsements

What can I say about Art of Emotion other than that they are WONDERFUL! I have been fortunate enough to witness them in action at multiple weddings and also had the amazing opportunity to have them photograph my own wedding! One thing I love most, is that Becky and her team are so fun to work with. Becky goes above and beyond to make you feel comfortable, and she really takes pride in her work. Plus, she is filled with a wealth of valuable wedding suggestions that really help to make your event flow smoothly. Most importantly, the images are AMAZING!!! You can literally feel the emotion in each one!! You will be so happy working with Art of Emotion... so what are you waiting for!

When I first met Becky she said, "Welcome to the team" To a videographer like me, this was music to my ears. To have a collaborative and creative experience on a wedding shoot is as good as it gets. Becky has really fresh ideas and is fun to work with. I recommend her highly.

Always look forward to working with Becky not only she's Passionate about her work but always finds "The most perfect moments" to take those unique shots... she's a delight to work with. Her work simply speaks for her and you won’t go wrong with hiring her for your event.
