About

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, 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!

    Light Romantic Film Photography with Attentiveness and Kindness

    The moment I looked through The Ganey's portfolio, I knew that I absolutely wanted Emily as a photographer for our wedding. Her use of light and movement left me absolutely speechless - I know nothing about art or photography in a technical sense, but at this point I'd been through hundreds of photographer's portfolios and I knew something was different about her.

    Turns out she photographs using film - actual tangible film on rolls - which apparently makes this soft, ethereal look that I adored. So much so that we only looked at venues that were available on dates that Emily was free to work on.

    After our initial planning meeting she sent over a list of some of her favorite places she'd done weddings at - and this helpfulness/bridesmaid-esque attentiveness from her lasted throughout all of our planning and the wedding itself. From providing neck fans during our first look shoot so I didn't melt my makeup off, helping me actually get dressed, keeping us on track logistically and just generally being a calming presence during the day, she was so much more than just a photographer for us.

    I will never look at our photographs without thinking of her with warm, grateful feelings and could not recommend her more.

    Beyond Obsessed!!

    I seriously can't say enough good things about The Ganeys! Not only are they insanely talented and delivered beautiful and timeless photos, but they're honestly just so much fun to work with. People say you spend more time with your photographers on your wedding day than anyone else and that's honestly true, so it's important to like them and we genuinely loved hanging out with Emily and Thomas. They're hilarious together and create such an approachable environment. It's also great that they're husband and wife so they can demo romantic poses and show you how to look great on camera!

    They also absolutely saved us on our wedding day. We had a full wedding planner, but your planning team will be busy getting everything ready the morning of the wedding and Emily and Thomas did an amazing job at keeping us on time and on track (even when the groomsmen decide to play golf instead of getting ready when they were supposed to and the groom forgets half of his clothes...).

    If you're deciding between The Ganeys and another photographer, save yourself the trouble and just go with Emily and Thomas! It'll be the best wedding planning decision you make!

    Unbelievable

    The Ganey’s were the best thing that happened to our wedding. Emily’s expertise, personality, attention to details, ability to capture all our moments, and overall ease to work with allowed us to have an incredibly low stress magical wedding day. She is a planner, a photographer, a friend, and advice giver all in one. Emily and Thomas made our wedding day and when we received our photos back they were more than we could have ever imagined!

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!
