Sometimes in the chaos of wedding season, a friendly reminder of why you do what you do goes a long way…
“Emma (York) is awesome because:
she has zen-like abilities to put a smile on people’s faces. It kind of falls into the same category as “always knows the right thing to say.” Like always.
she is full of ridiculously gripping stories that are at times hard to believe. They’re so awesome, they will guaranteed keep you awake on late night drives home.
she’s super good at posing in photos spontaneously and acting as a backdrop for ring shots.
if she ever had a bad day, I don’t know that I ever would have been able to tell. She had the most incredible way of telling me about her life and consistently sounding positive. In fact, I can’t think of a single negative feeling I have towards Emma, except for some mild resentment for being so incredibly fantastic all the time. Not many people have that kind of capacity for greatness.
she’s incredibly ambitious and talented. Once I got to know her, I realized her life experiences and skills far surpassed an average person her age. Not only that, decides to pursue something, she nails it. I mean, seriously, look at her photography. She’s progressed significantly since she started dabbling in it over a year ago, and while I blame solid mentorship (you rock, Chris!) I think her growth is attributed to this uncanny desire to grow and just, all in all, be awesome.” ~ Emma Wheatley, owner of Rose Wheat Photography
-My wife and I decided to use Emma York for a “Joy Session” as well as for a baby announcement (our first!). We wanted to make 100% sure that who we used was going to be nothing but AWESOME! Emma did a fantastic job at getting us “out of our element” in order to express the joy of our occasion! Even as a life-long resident of Manhattan, Emma was able to take us to a variety of places around our community that I never knew existed, and the backgrounds for the photos were amazing! Emma is creative, fun, enthusiastic and so passionate about what she does! Working with her was an absolute pleasure! I would HIGHLY recommend Emma York to fit well with anyone to photograph any sort of event! -Adam and Jessica B.
