Of all the vendors I worked with she is hands down the most organized and professional. She is such a good business person, but on top of that she's so warm and friendly! The photos are GORGEOUS and just filled with so much love and happiness. This is more than I could have wished for our wedding.
Ailynne & Derek
Emma was the one vendor I never had to worry about during the entire wedding planning process. We love all of our wedding photos and could not be happier with how they turned out. Emma went above and beyond our expectations and we highly recommend her to any couple looking for dreamy and romantic wedding photos.
Tiffany & Alexandre
We went through hundreds of photographers and hundreds of hours of research to find the perfect match, and we're glad we found Ether & Smith. They were spectacular and very reassuring when it came to our requests and desires on our wedding day. Everything looked ethereal and heavenly.
Hattie & Mitch
Emma and Allen made us feel so at ease and like we were the hottest models lol. On our wedding day, they captured everything I could have possibly wanted, and more.
Susan & Justin
Emma is truly an artist, professional, and so OCD organized in the best way - I LOVE IT! She gives incredibly great direction on posing for photos and made my husband and I feel so comfortable. There was so much detail, moments, and emotion captured that we either missed or didn't notice so it was absolutely wonderful to be able to see them and relive them.
Juana & Jesse
We can't thank Emma and Allen enough for capturing every detail of our wedding! We absolutely loved both our engagement pictures and our wedding pictures! Every time we look at our pictures, we fall in love with them more and more!
Linaja & Michael
Emma and Allen are fantastic human beings! Hiring Ether and Smith to photograph our wedding was - by far - the best wedding planning decision that we made!
