    Simply perfection

    Emerald Stone Photography is simply perfection. The associates that photographed our wedding were AMAZING. They were both creative with the shots they were setting up and were a lot of fun to work with. Im often uncomfortable with pictures of me, but they kept it fun and lighthearted. I have seen a few sneak peeks and they have been stunning! I cannot wait to see the rest of the pictures!

    Erica was also a lifesaver and easy to work with. We had to postpone our original date due to COVID and due to scheduling issues we lost our original photographer. When I reached out to Erica about our predicament she was quick to respond and answered all of my questions. She was an integral part of keeping our day special and we couldn’t have asked for a better person to work with.

    Emerald Stone's team is amazing!!

    Erica was absolutely phenomenal to work with throughout the entire planning process, event, and follow-up! Matt and Josh were outstanding photographers and so much fun to work with, they did a tremendous job of capturing so many amazing moments and helping us create treasured memories. Our wedding day was far beyond anything we could have hoped for, and Emerald Stone played a huge part in making it the best day of our lives. I would recommend Erica and her team to absolutely everyone seeking talented, professional, kind, and creative photographers.

    Great Team

    We loved having Emerald Stone as our photographer! Josh was great and picked up on our fun easy going personalities right away. We were able to get a ton of creative shots all over the grounds of the PA Ran Faire. He was able to make us feel very natural while taking posed photos.

    Amazing Day with Husband & Wife Team from Emerald Stone!!

    In light of COVID-19, my husband & I decided to elope & postpone our big celebration until 2021. We contacted Erica with Emerald Stone less than 2 weeks before our surprise nuptials & she responded timely, making sure we had one of her team members there to shoot our day. And they did not disappoint!! We spent the day with Bryan & Laikin who made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. They got creative when it started to rain & made sure we had some amazing shots that reflected our love for each other. So happy to have our engagement & elopement photography done by Emerald Stone & looking forward to spending another day with them in 2021.

    Amazing, fun, flexible, helped make our wedding

    Josh and Bryan were our photographers and made our wedding so much better with their presence. They were so flexible and willing to get any pictures we wanted including climbing over fences and in tall grass. They made sure my dress was perfect getting off anything that would look bad.

    Very happy bride

    It was a great experience! We got the teaser video the very next day! We were extremely grateful because we were able to send it to all the people that couldn’t come due to Covid. The final video was absolutely perfect! We couldn’t have asked for anything more.

    Fun flexible team captured every moment!

    Emerald Stone Photography was our choice to capture our engagement photos and wedding day. Prior to our big day, communication was great! Erica is prompt, thorough, and responsive when planning and understanding your vision. The team was fun and flexible to work with.
    They were everywhere but never in the way! Snapping great shots all day without us even knowing. Some of our favorite photos are the candid ones they took. Photo turn around time was amazing and we had sneak peeks that weekend! Thanks for capturing our favorite day!

    Made My day So Much Better

    Josh and his assistant Matt are so amazing at what they do and have such great personalities! They made my day stress free and helped make sure they got every shot I asked for and more! This was extra special to me because my sister Erica is the Owner of Emerald Stone and I have always loved and admired her work and how they get such in the moment shots which are my favorite. I highly recommend Emerald Stone Photography and I guarantee you wont regret it!

    Go with the flow and low stress

    Emerald Stone Photography provided two exceptionally nice photographers! They were able to adapt to the changing weather and the wacky ideas of the bride and groom. We had a blast laughing and just having fun! They managed to capture the fun we were having throughout our entire day. Their attention to detail is remarkable! We had them for 6 hours and they were able to capture so much in that time frame. We received our photos and I was astounded at the quality and editing. The price we paid was worth it because we got more than we asked for!

    Professional and Punctual

    Emerald Stone Photography was nothing short of amazing. From our engagement shoot, last year we knew immediately that we had made the right choice. As our wedding day approached, Erica was prompt on returning any e-mails and answering any questions. Josh and Bryan were absolutely amazing to work with and super accommodating to all of our little requests. They made sure that we were always looking our best and went out of their way to get the perfect shot. It also helps that they both have a great sense of humor and were able to keep the air light, in spite of our nerves. I look forward to working again with Emerald Stone Photography for any photo needs that our family might need in the future! We cannot thank them enough! You captured the most special day of our lives and we will have those photos forever.

    Great to work with - highly recommend!

    I had not heard of Emerald Stone Photography, so kind of took a risk and hired them. Not only did they exceed expectations, the photographer the day of could not have been nicer or more professional. When our schedule shifted, they accommodated us and made suggestions on how to get the most out of their time there. I would highly recommend them!

    Absolutely Amazing

    Words cannot do justice how amazing the Emerald Stone Photography team is. The constant communication and check-ins, attention detail, asking questions that I never would have thought to alert someone about - everything was far more than I could have imagined. Erica was amazing to work with on the back end, and Josh & Bryan made a couple who hates getting their picture taken love every minute of our time with them. They are worth every. single. penny. and more.

    Our Small Wedding

    We absolutely loved our photographers, their personalities clicked with ours and we had so much fun during our engagement and wedding shoots! The photographers and the team were always quick to respond and attentive to our needs/wants for the big day. Our sneak peeks are amazing, can’t wait to see all of our wedding photos.

    Effortless

    My experience with Emerald Stone Photography was so smooth, Erica was professional and very quick to respond to emails, texts, and even calls! Our lead photographer was Josh and assisting him was Matt, both fit right in with our vibe and captured beautiful shots of our special day. We had our engagement photos done with Emerald as well and loved the style for all of them. Both times we got them back relatively fast for the high quality editing Erica did. At the time I booked they were running a special for 50% off all wedding packages which helped tremendously otherwise it would have been a little too much for our budget so we got extremely lucky. But if you're in between deciding where to spend and save money, remember that everything will be for just that one night except your wedding pictures. Definitely reccomend them for the best day of you lives!

    Treated Like Friends

    We got 3 photographers who each excelled in something different. 1 followed the bride everywhere and got incredible candid shots, another went the artistic route and focused on the structure surrounding us. It helped they all seemed to be having a blast alongside us. We literally cannot recommend Emerald enough. The price we paid seems like a steal for the service that was provided. We will happily use them again for future celebrations!

    Beautiful Pics and East to Work With

    We used Emerald Stone Photography for our wedding in June. Erica was super responsive and easy to work with leading up to the big day. Josh and Matt were our 'day of' photographers and they were excellent. They stuck to the schedule we determined ahead of time, but were flexible when I threw last minute changes at them. My mom who is super picky even commented how amazing they were. Most importantly, our pictures turned out beautiful ones we will treasure forever.

Thank you so much for choosing Emerald Stone to capture this wonderful day for you and being so amazing to work with.

    Perfectly captured a whirlwind day!

    We are so appreciative of the quality and care taken to make sure our wedding day was perfectly captured. The questions asked beforehand were thoughtful and thorough, allowing us to leave the details to them and fully enjoy our day as bride and groom. Erica helped us to pin down the timeline and was gracious in working with our budget so that we were able to extend the total hours onsite to capture all the important moments of the day. Wrangling our huge rowdy family in the epic heat was no easy task, but the photographers were absolute pros. The time we had alone as a couple, taking pictures around my childhood property, was one of the highlights of the day (and not at all nerve-wracking as the groom was anticipating!!) thanks to the great sense of humor and relaxed vibe of the two photographers and videographer. We got the pictures back a month later and it was such a treat to relive the day again through these stunning shots. Thank you to the entire Emerald Stone Photography team for a great experience from start to finish!!!

One of our favorite parts of your big day was that everything had such important meaning to you two- just like being on the land that was so important to you in your childhood. There wasn't a detail out of place, and we were so happy to capture if for you. Thank you so much for your review and for choosing Emerald Stone to be there with you on this special day.

    Excellent Service and Great Candid Shots

    We hired Emerald Stone for both our Engagement photos and Wedding. Working with Josh was so much fun! He provided a little guidance for us, but mostly just let us be ourselves...making for some great, natural shots! On our wedding day, he placed himself in the perfect position for most of our photos, and the ceremony was captured perfectly. What we enjoyed the most though were the candid shots of our guests at the reception. We were so busy, we really did not get to spend much time with each of our guests. The photos showed us how much fun everyone was having, making the day even more special for us. Emerald Stone, and Josh, are highly recommended!!!!!!!

    Emerald Stone is incredible! From day one we worked with Erica, who truly went above and beyond anything we expected in every aspect of our big day. Within just a few weeks of signing our contract, Erica traveled to Philadelphia to shoot our engagement pictures on a frigid cold February day. The pictures were stunning and serve as wonderful reminders of a very special day for us. We received 'sneak peeks' the day after taking our pictures and had all of the edited shots back within a week - so impressive. In the months, weeks and days leading up to the wedding, Erica was on top of planning all of the photography and videography details for our wedding day. She created a detailed timeline and immediately responded to emails and texts with questions, requests and thoughts for the day. She provided sample pictures for us to review and also encouraged us to send her ideas of the styles we liked best. On the day of the wedding, Erica (lead photographer) and her team of Josh (videography) and Crystal (second lead photographer) were nothing short of amazing. Our entire wedding party had so much fun with them throughout the day and they made sure to capture all of the memories from our entire day. Erica even managed to get us some sneak peaks the morning after the wedding before we left for our honeymoon. We would recommend Emerald Stone to anyone who values photography and wants beautiful pictures from their special day!

    Emerald Stone Photography was such a pleasure to work with. We had so much fun with Josh during our Engagement Photos and the more so during our Wedding Day. We appreciated his playfulness and commitment to making sure he captured who we were. He has such a great vision for photos and set us up for some really great shots. His easy going nature and ability to go with the flow worked well with our dynamic. As far as communication goes, I appreciated how easy it was to contact and get in touch with everyone. Erica was very responsive over email and Josh stayed in touch up until the day before the wedding. It was a nice touch him reaching out a few days before the wedding, it made the whole experience feel more personal. We just got out sneak peak photos, and I cannot wait to see the rest!! Thank you Josh, Ashlie & Erica for helping us capture such a magical day in our lives. <3
