"Emily Turner is exceptional.

Exceptional as a photographer - have you SEEN her work?! Not only is she brilliant technically, but she has an exceptional talent for capturing moments that tell stories: whether it’s of my reaction to my husband one-hand-handstanding’ on the dance floor, our family’s faces immediately following a round of shots off a surfboard and of course...her unbelievable sunset photos. Thanks to Emily, we not only have stunning photos of our wedding to share with generations to come...but also a collection of incredible, spontaneous moments artfully captured by Emily as well."


David & Daphne

"Emily is truly the best! We are so grateful to have found her as our wedding photographer! We were very particular on style that we wanted for our wedding in Hawaii and she was the perfect fit. She is so personable, down to earth, and one of the sweetest vendor we've worked with. We have done many research in finding the right photographer and Emily's photos just stood out the most to us. You can feel the moment through each of the photos that she captures. She threw us by surprise when she had sent us a beautiful slideshow preview in less than a week after our wedding! Amazing! She captured every perfect moment so beautifully & naturally. We are still in awe just looking at the pictures today! Thank you Emily! :)

Book her if you haven't done so and you won't regret it!"

Emily is a phenomenal photographer and so much more than we could have hoped for. We are so lucky that we were able to work with her for our wedding!
To preface this review, I hate 99% of the photos taken of me. But I also wanted to be stunningly beautiful in my wedding photos. It was a pretty impossible task. And yet Emily made the impossible happen. I loved every single photo she sent over to us. She truly captured all of the love, joy, and fun of our wedding in gorgeous photos, and I find myself scrolling through our pictures frequently to relive that day. She took the time to listen to everything we wanted captured for the day, but she was also efficient at getting all of those shots so that we had time to enjoy the wedding with our guests. She's clearly a pro. On top of all of that, she is genuinely one of the kindest and coolest people you will meet. She is incredibly calming and put my husband and I at total ease while she snapped photos of us. She gave great direction for the photos, and we never felt "forced" or "awkward" during the photoshoot.
If you're reading this, BOOK EMILY. I'm sure you will love her and her work as much as we did!


Arlett & Marcos

"I cannot recommend Emily enough. She's an absolute gem and will capture the most beautiful moments that you'll get to cherish for life.

My absolute favorite part of working with Emily was how professional and timely she was. For our pre-ceremony shoot, she shared sneak peak in a matter of 12 hours...can you say superwoman?!

A few days after our wedding, she sent a sneak peak slideshow of our amazing (edited) photos, complete with music that brought us all to tears! There were so many little sweet moments she caught on camera that just made the photos much more special.

Thank you Emily for your amazing work!!"


Mariko & Kris

"One of the best decisions we made for our wedding was having Emily as our photographer! She was professional, kind and sweet throughout the entire process. She knows how to take flattering photos of us and she made us feel comfortable in front of camera. She also knows how to capture the moments of our friends and family enjoying the day. I’m so amazed she was able to capture so many great shots in such a short time!!She is extremely talented and we absolutely love how the photographs came out. I’d give her 100 stars!!!!"
