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!

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

It has taken me a while since my wedding day to write a review for The Ganeys because putting into words just how incredible they are seemed like a daunting task. I truly mean this when I say they were the absolute best decision of our entire wedding day! Emily + Thomas are the absolute dream team of wedding photographers and far exceeded all of the expectations we had. The Ganeys are so amazing to work with - they're hilarious, have an incredible eye, are always responsive and have the best work ethic of any vendor I have ever worked with. Seriously they are some hard workers! They consistently checked in, were doing things outside their scope of work and went above and beyond in every single aspect of the entire process. My husband does not like taking photos and therefore did not want to spend a lot of money on the photographer for our wedding - that changed immediately after our first meeting with Emily and Thomas. Once we booked them, he said it was the best money we ever spent! They even made the engagement and wedding photos fun and comfortable for him! :) The Ganeys are not the cheapest, but after the entire process my husband and I both think they don't charge enough. The amount of time that Thomas and Emily put into our big day prior to, on and after the big day makes them an incredible value. Emily almost became a mini wedding planner providing vendor recs, timelines, wedding day weather forecasts and even reaching out to my other vendors to get them in line! haha. Seriously, what photographer does that?! The pictures attached speak for themselves, but I cannot tell you how many compliments we received about them from our friends, family and strangers - and not only compliments for the photos, but about amazing they were to be around on the big day. No amount of credit or praise is enough to show truly remarkable The Ganeys are. They literally became a part of our family that day and it meant everything to us!Sent on 01/26/2018

The Ganeys are ... hands down ... the very best! We will always be beyond happy that we chose to hire them to photograph our wedding! Since I'm a photographer myself, my then-fiance left it up to me to choose the photographer for our wedding- this was the one thing that I was picky about. I did a lot of research, wanting to find someone who I trusted enough so that I could let it go and not worry about it. I wanted a photographer with 1) advanced technical skills; 2) great people skills; and, by extension, 3) the ability to capture the emotion of our day. The Ganeys have all of those things in spades! They are worth. every. single. penny. I've stalked -- I mean followed -- their work for a while now :-) and it speaks for itself. I'm drawn in by the light, dreamy quality, and the emotion. That feeling you get when you look at a photograph and your heart flutters, and your throat catches. That's the sweet stuff - and not all photographers can deliver it. We had a very intimate wedding (10 guests) so Emily was solo that day. She was a breeze to work with from the first time we contacted her, and helped us work out a detailed timeline in the months leading up to the wedding. She was quick to respond to our e-mails. On the day of our wedding, she was prompt and got right to work. Everyone was immediately at ease and she felt like part of the family. She worked quickly and efficiently, and was able to get so many shots when we didn't even know she was there! She even helped with wardrobe malfunctions, and so many other little things that tend to happen at weddings. It was like she was all over the place! Emily knew exactly how to make us feel comfortable in front of the camera, and gave us direction so that we looked our best. She also captured candids that may just be our favorites (I don't know - we have so many favorites!!) She created beautiful works of art that we will treasure for the rest of our lives! ~ Jim & MindySent on 07/19/2017
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!
