    Emily is soooo talented!

    Emily is a DREAM!!! She is organized, well prepared and stunning in person. She got my 12 year old nephew to actually smile for a photo. Emily's vibe is spectacular both in prep and execution. She brings the best out in all of us both in our planned photos and capturing the essence of the day. THANKS EMILY!!!

    the best wedding photographer!


    Emily was a dream to work with!
    We were going to go with a different photographer, but when I met Emily, I know that I had to go with her.
    She is helpful from the very start with ideas for engagement photos to helping with talking about good places to go for flowers and DJs. Emily went above and beyond for her craft. She captured the personalities of my husband and I in every photo. All the guests and bridal party have nothing but kind words to say about my photographer.
    If you want someone who will go above and beyond for your wedding, Emily Theisen Photography is the place to go!

    Stephanie!!!!

    I didn't know you were going with another photog! Now I feel SUPER honored!!! Seriously, you are the kindest couple and I am so honored I had the opportunity to document this beautiful time in your lives. I still get misty eyed looking at the photos of you and your dad dancing. This will be a moment that I will never forget.

    Thank you, again, from the bottom of my heart.

    Amazing Wedding Photographer!

    Emily Theisen was our photographer for our September wedding. The search for your perfect photographer can be such a daunting task, but I am so incredibly happy I came across Emily Theisen Photography! She was very easy and fun to talk and work with. She was very professional and clearly takes pride in her skills and what she is able to capture as a photographer. Her photos are beautiful and of high quality. She is also very willing to help with bouncing ideas around for your wedding (she has been to plenty to know what is a good idea and what is a not so good idea). I highly recommend Emily to be your wedding photographer (or any other event really)

    Emily is AMAZING! She is extremely organized and prompt! She made our wedding enjoyable with her fun and upbeat personality! She makes you feel comfortable and has creative ways to capture genuine moments! We had a large wedding party and huge wedding and she was able to coordinate everyone in a respectful way! She hands down is the best photographer and I’m excited to have her take our family photos going forward!

    Thank you!

    Where do we even begin... Emily did a fantastic job for both our engagement photos as well as on our on our wedding day! My wife and I cannot thank her enough for capturing our wedding day and all who were there. She did an amazing job and we would absolutely recommend her to anyone who is in need of someone who is not only professional, but truly enjoys her job and has fun doing it! Thank you again Emily for all that you have done for us. We will certainly be coming back to you in the future to help us capture more moments in our life!

    Emily was the best! She was so flexible and accommodating, and made me feel at at ease during planning and on the wedding day- a must have for a busy bride!
    She traveled an hour to our engagement session so we could take pictures at our college where we met and fell in love.
    On our wedding day, she was so easy to work with. The day goes by so fast, but she captured all the details, expressions, and emotions. Our family and friends adored her. I loved that Emily kept everyone on schedule, and always checked in with me to see how I was feeling or if I needed anything.
    We will definitely be recommending Emily to everyone we know for all occasions, and we can't wait to work with her again!

    Emily did a wonderful job at my daughter's wedding. She was very professional, respectful, creative and fun! She was able to take photos that matched the bride and grooms personalities and interests. And, she can even work with those pesky family members who try to take charge :-)

    Emily is great to work with. I have previously worked with her through my friend for my MBA graduation photos. I manage to get her one week before my courthouse wedding and she was very accommodating to my schedule. Even though we only had like a short period of time to get to work on some shots - but everything was great. She gave wonderful suggestions on how to pose. And a lot of my friends back home love the photos. Would definitely recommend working with her.

    Emily Theisen is truly a find! We were truly blessed to have her as our wedding photographer.

    We knew we wanted a photographer that not only took beautiful photos, but one that could handle the diverse group of personalities that would be part of our wedding. After meeting her we knew that she would be the perfect fit. Her personality is wonderful, and we knew she would not only be able to win everyone over, but also keep them in line if needed, and we were not disappointed.

    Working with her was a dream. She responds very quickly to calls, emails and texts, which was very important to us.

    Our friends and family all loved her, and have told us repeatedly how much they liked her. We were very lucky to have her as part of our big day.

    Here is the other thing – She went above and beyond as a photographer. Her wealth of knowledge was invaluable on our wedding day. She had a lot of great tips and advice, and she literally bustled my dress for me when no one else was able to do it. That is service.

    We just received our photos and they are gorgeous. We are so excited to share them with all of our friends and family.

    If you are looking for a photographer who takes gorgeous photos, has very competitive pricing, will respond to your questions and requests quickly, that everyone will love working with on your wedding day, and who goes above and beyond Emily is the photographer for you.

    Emily was very professional and knew the type of photos I was looking for to use in my job search and on linked in. She gave valuable advice on what to wear, make up tips and how to bring out a genuine smile. She was recommended to me by a friend that had portraits done several years ago. His (more pensive, in sepia and very artful) were a very different type than mine (head shots of a professional, approachable sales person) and she demonstrated great skill in both varieties. I plan to pass her name to people in my circles as I take joy in sharing what and who I find to be the best.

In addition she is wonderful with family members of all ages (from 8 to 93 in our family). I highly recommend hiring her as the photographer for your event - you won't be disappointed! We love our photos!

    We hired Emily to photograph our wedding in May 2015. Emily was wonderful. We are so lucky to have found her. She was reliable and easy to get a hold of. She asked lots of questions about what we wanted and was easy to communicate with. She got wonderful impromptu shots as well as staged photos with family members. (I still can't believe she managed to wrangle my extended family of thirty into a photo where everyone looked good!) She was also great with the details- making sure ties were straight and nobody was holding beers in the staged photos. She got all the special photos we asked for, including mouthwatering photos of the food, and she had some great creative ideas of her own that really captured the feel of the space. She also was upfront about prices and worked with us to find a package that would fit in our budget. In short, a total pro. A pleasure to work with, and we couldn't be happier with our our photos.

    Emily did our engagement pics on very short notice so that we could have them in time for the central MN brides magazine. She was very helpful, with an infectious bubbly demeanor =) we probably can't afford in our budget to have her do our wedding unfortunately...although I wish our photography budget was as gargantuan as Keith and I's love for each other! Emily was still going into our engagement photo session as if she was catering to royalty, and she definitely made us feel high class and did a great job! If I could do my budget over for my wedding, I would save more spending room on the photography portion for sure! And Emily deserves every penny and then some!!! Her work is worth it's weight in gold, thanks for helping us out Emily! I look forward to seeing her in the future for family portraits, hunting portraits, and recommending her to anyone looking for a memorable experience like never before...
