Thanks for dropping by - we were hoping you would! We love meeting new people and hope you're here to become some of our newest friends.
We are based in San Francisco California (we recently relocated from St. Petersburg, FL), but we love to travel and do it often. We use both film and digital cameras. The soft, warm look of film gets us ridiculously excited (plus, receiving processed film is equivalent to waking up on Christmas morning). Our focus has become capturing loving couples in natural light settings. Romance is magical and we can't believe we have the opportunity to preserve it. We want to rejoice in celebrated moments and tear up during emotional ones (I really will, I'm a sap).
We only offer one wedding package. As your wedding photographers, all we care about is taking the best photos possible. We don't want to check our watches while great moments are happening or leave before the final send off. The bride and groom shouldn't be worried about what time we're heading home. We don't have limits on our time or the amount of images that we capture on your day. We also don't limit the amount of photos that you receive. We are here to provide you with as many beautiful memories as we can, hoping that you will integrate these images into your life and share them lovingly with future generations.
Send us an email (Emily@theganeys.com)! We look forward to hearing from you!

This is a long overdue review! I found The Ganeys when I was randomly on pinterest (which is a rare event) and fell in love with one of their images. After looking through their portfolio and finding out that they just moved to the Bay Area, I was absolutely floored and had to get on a call with Emily. From the onset, Emily was so amazing to talk to - extremely friendly and you could tell that she cares about the couple and the experience she is creating.Sent on 08/25/2019
Three reasons why working with The Ganeys is the best: 1) It is clear that Emily has a ton of passion for her couples and truly wants to get to know them. I'm so glad that we have become friends over the last year and got to enjoy dinner with them after our wedding was over! 2) She is extremely organized and professional - as someone who values planning, I knew I was in great hands with Emily's schedule and plan for our hectic wedding day. She also delivers images crazy fast - I didn't expect our wedding highlights to come back within a week. 3) She is so incredibly talented and she shoots in film as well. This is a KEY DIFFERENTIATOR! Anyone can take 100 shots within 5 seconds on a digital camera and find the best shot, but with film, you really have to capture the key moment precisely while making sure you have great lighting for the image. She does this so naturally and her film shots are so epic and artistic.
I never expected that our wedding would get featured in Style Me Pretty (I don't even follow SMP on IG), but this is all due to Emily's hard work in capturing an extremely long and crazy day!
Some additional thoughts regarding our experience during the engagement shoot and wedding day:
During our engagement shoot, Emily and Thomas were so comfortable to work with! They are hilarious together - Emily takes lead and Thomas follows with jokes and their dynamic makes the whole situation a lot more fun. I totally went into the shoot thinking we would get a ton of awkward shots (because we are the most unphotogenic couple, as evidenced by our typical vacation photos). But when the album came back, I was absolutely amazed. Even Tim was like "wow, I look REALLY good" - this is coming from the guy who dreaded taking photos. There were so many amazing pictures that we had a hard time picking our favorite for our save the date. After the engagement session, we immediately knew we were in good hands for the wedding and couldn't wait to see the two of them again! :)
A few days before our wedding, we saw that the forecast indicated heavy rain showers. I reached out to Emily to know that we were setting up Plan B plans, and she wrote back the sweetest response. Amidst all the stress of trying to move a ceremony location from outdoors to an indoor location, she knew all the right things to say in a very stressful period for us and I can't thank her enough for that. On the day of, she went ABOVE AND BEYOND anything a photographer should have been doing - making sure that we stayed dry and warm in the weather, holding my dress so that it didn't get soaked, guiding us on what to do when it came to cake cutting - all in all she was there for us every step of the way. And we could not have gotten through the day without her and Thomas. Their experience with so many weddings shines through as they're able to foresee what's going to happen next and plan for it before it even happens. It was a crazy and extremely memorable wedding day for us and there's no one else that we would have wanted to be there with us through it all!
Thank you Emily and Thomas for everything - you've created memories that we will cherish forever!!

An Absolute Must!
There are no words to truly describe how incredible these two are! You are not just getting a professional wedding photographer duo - you are gaining a friendship. For Emily and Thomas, this is not just a job. This is their passion and it shows in their work. They are invested in your happiness and are committed to delivering the greatest memories you will have of your special day. They are timely, professional, extremely talented (check their website), and honest. Above all that, they are two of the kindest people my husband and I have met. You feel comfortable around them and taking pictures becomes something that feels natural - that means a lot from someone who does not feel like a natural in front of a camera! Some of the fondest memories leading up to our wedding day were with them and we look forward to continuing our friendship.Sent on 06/01/2019
Our engagement and wedding photos came out better than I ever could have imagined. They captured every little detail. Everyone that was at our wedding, every emotion, and every dance move was photographed! I don't understand how the two of them were literally EVERYWHERE all night! They didn't miss a beat.
Search no further - I can guarantee that you will not find anyone better!

Emily and Thomas Ganey are who you should hire to photograph your engagement and wedding. Period. They are extremely warm and wonderful people to work with. Not only are they experienced, knowledgeable, and incredible artists, but they are also flexible and extremely accommodating. They will make anything happen and will do it with professionalism and a smile. They will *literally* travel anywhere for your shoot. Throughout our engagement year, they were detail oriented and communicative, helping us organize our wedding day timeline and making helpful, experience-based suggestions. They struck the perfect balance of being "on top of it" without being overbearing. They sent us sweet gifts and encouragement throughout the year and quickly became our friends. While shooting, they make you feel so comfortable and at ease. They totally over-delivered in every expectation that I had, and photography was one of my top priorities for our wedding. We were given so many more photos than promised, we were sent preview proofs within TWO DAYS of our wedding, and we could NOT be happier with the photos. Don't think twice about hiring these wonderful people; you will not be disappointed!Sent on 01/31/2019
Emily & her husband are one of the sweetest couples I've had the pleasure of working with. Their kindness and work ethic exceeded our expectations! Emily went out of her way to shoot extra detailed shots for the bride, even on days that she was not scheduled to work. She is super flexible with any changes requested of her and responds in a quick manner. Emily & Thomas genuinely care very much about their clients and will do whatever it takes to make their photos exactly how they imagined them. I also want to mention that she provided the couple with a bunch of sneak peak photos less than 1 week after the wedding... Following the full album (fully edited and downloadable in 3 different ways) 2 weeks after their wedding. I have NEVER worked with a photographer who got photos back to their clients so fast! And of course the photos speak for themselves... absolutely stunning!
Amazing to work with!!
Exceptional talent, professionalism, and heart. One of the greats!
