Amazing! Helped us have the best day ever!
Emma is absolutely amazing! From the moment we met her I knew she was going to be our wedding photographer. The whole process was amazing and seamless start to finish. Emma communicated throughout everything and even when we had a few hiccups with the venue, Emma jumped in to take care of it so that we didn't have to stress about anything. She truly shows that she cares about making your wedding day the best day ever, and makes your feel comfortable and worry-free. Emma was super accommodating and made sure we got photos of everything that was important to us, while also throwing in her creativite ideas of shots of her own that are truly breathtaking. I look through our wedding pictures often and are taken away by how beautiful they all came out. I also love the funny candid shots that she got of everyone at the wedding, it's fun to go back and see everyone have such a good time and being able to relive the day again.
We also ordered a wedding album through Emma and her layout and creativity of it was just so beautiful. The way it is organized makes it really feel like I'm reliving that day over again. It's nice to get a glimpse of all the photos from getting ready in the begining of the day, to ending the night off with our sparkler send off. Emma sent proofs of the album over ahead of time to make sure I was happy with it, and I absolutely loved how it came out. I highly suggest getting album because the day goes by so fast so having the photos to look back on again is so worth it. Everything about Emma is exactly what you need for your wedding day as she will take care of you, your wedding party, and make sure everything is as perfect as can be so that you can just enjoy your day. Thank you so much Emma for capturing our beautiful wedding day, you are amazing!Sent on 07/28/2020

Highly recommend working with Emma!
Emma is amazing, and an absolute pleasure to work with! Her photos are beautiful and creative, and we have sooo many gorgeous photos from our wedding day! She is very professional and responsive, and kept in touch with us regularly leading up to the wedding (particularly once the COVID crisis started becoming a factor in our day, she was regularly monitoring all the restrictions/rules in CT and keeping us up to date). We were forced to postpone our big celebration due to COVID, but didn't know up until about 9 days before our original date if we could still do our small ceremony, and Emma was really supportive and went with all the crazy flow with us. We ended up having the most beautiful day, and the best part is we get to work with her again for our full reception in 2021! Thanks so much, Emma!Sent on 06/05/2020
Emma Thurgood Photography's reply:Thank you so much Kristen for this review! I had such a great time with you and Jeremy for your intimate ceremony and I can't wait to party hard with you for your big wedding in 2021!

Emma (and Brittany) were awesome to work with at our wedding earlier this year. The level of professionalism in her work was incredible. All of our photos are gorgeous, and the lighting and shadows on so many are breathtaking. It's worth going with a professional for your wedding photos because you're going to want to enjoy marveling at them for a long time. It's hard to limit the number we want displayed in the house. Emma also helped us come up with a specific package that worked better for our timeline and budget.Sent on 07/18/2020
Emma Thurgood Photography's reply:Thank you so much for this review Marina! It means so much to me that you loved your wedding photography experience and your photos.

Hey There, I'm Emma! I'm a loud adventurer who loves to explore outdoors and take gorgeous photos of people in love! I will seriously gush over how cute you two are together and work with you to create magical photos that really represent who you two are in your souls. I went to seven years of art school, so there is seriously nothing that's too weird for me and I love coupels who aren't afraid to get goofy, nerdy or go on an epic adventure with me exploring the outdoors. I have a great partner who I've known since we were twelve and together we have an amazing daughter who is a creative wonder, but also a tiny tyrant. I live in New Britain which is an awesome little CT city and I'm a New England girl through and through!
