About Emma Austin Photography

hired 5 times on Thumbtack

I am a student, traveler, waitress, hostess, sister, daughter, adventurer, bookworm, and artist, and I have been doing photography for 3 years. I love it and can't wait to keep seeing my photography grow over the years.

I have a small studio space, but prefer to do on-location shooting.

    I received the most rude service from Emma. She doesn't return texts and when she does finally text you back, she accuses you of harassment. This girl has a lot to learn in customer service.

    Emma was an amazing photographer for my wedding reception. She was so open to offering us suggestions when we didn't know what we wanted, but also so ready to hear what our opinions were when we had them. Everyone loved her work, her personality, her professionalism, and she offered me an outstanding deal because she knew I was on a very tight budget. Our sound went out moments before the reception- something totally unrelated to her job description- and she climbed right in with my family and I to fix it without any expectations. She just wanted us to be happy. Do yourself a favor and get a photographer who cares about your special day, no matter what it is.

    Emma is amazing. Not only is she extremely creative and skilled, but also flexible to work with and great with kids. She made the session fun and let the kids be themselves. She did a wonderful job at catching their true personalities and real smiles. Additionally, turn-around time with our pictures was very short and the price to have rights to all of them extremely affordable.

    Myself and my family met Emma and her assistant Jessica yesterday at Ridley State Park for pictures, she was on time, we walked around for about an hour getting different back rounds, she was fabulous, very out going and had great ideas for different poses etc... I can't wait to see the pictures. I would definitely reccomend her to anyone. Jessica Kyle

Q. How did you get started doing this type of work?

A. My story to photography s very sentimental, I snapped a shot of my Great Grandfather before he passed away. After the images were printed everyone loved the photograph. My love of photography just grew from there.

Q. What types of customers have you worked with?

A. I typically do portrait shoots wedding and event photography cor clients. I love to do family, children, and couples. I have experience doing maternity, engagement, family, extended family, children, and birthday photography. I have a passion for capturing the true you. not a stuffy posed version of your family. I love to use minimal props and mostly interaction between people.

Q. What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?

A. Photography can be expensive, it is not always true that the cheapest is the lowest quality or the most expensive is the best quality. Please understand you are purchasing my lives, my art, and your precious moments or memories in time and sometimes that can cost a little more but it well worth it later when you are looking at photographs.
