Thanks for dropping by – we are excited that you’re considering us for your wedding day! We’ve rebranded – go check us out over at The Ganeys! :) 

We love meeting new people and hope we have the opportunity to get to know you.

Emily Katharine Photography is based in St. Petersburg, FL, but we love to travel and do it often. We are hybrid shooters – wooohoo! That means we use digital cameras and we snap images on rolls of film throughout your day to capture moments in a soft, warm, and romantic style. I know what you’re thinking … “Film?” Yes, we use old-fashioned film cameras! If you like the images on our site or instagram, then we’ve got news for you – yup, they’re all film! We love it, and it captures images in a way that digital cameras can’t replicate. That said, we use both types of cameras for wedding days to keep up with the fast pace environment. Get it? Hybrid shooters! Woot!

Our focus is capturing our couple’s love, a love that can move mountains. Romance is magical, and we are so thankful that we have the opportunity to preserve it. We want to rejoice in celebrated moments and tear up during emotional ones (I really will, I’m a sap). Photography has always been our passion, and we would like to share this adventure with you! We look forward to capturing your romance, laughter, and smiles. Learn more about our one wedding package and send us a message. 


000049660015When reflecting on important moments in my life, I can relate many of them to photography. In college, my focus shifted from travel photography to capturing the personalities of the people around me. I fell in love with the history and facets of every individual I met. Photography was where I found my motivation. After much encouragement from family, friends, and Thomas, Emily Katharine Photography was born in August of 2012.

I’m an organized person, but my car is filled with mix CD’s from the 90’s. London has a special place in my heart. I adore westies and, if it is cold out, I’ll even wear my westie socks to your wedding. Some days I’m convinced I love foamy milk more than the latte itself. I can’t get enough of our two dogs – Oliver and Canon. I use six calendars – yes, six. I take pride in finding bargain deals. There are few things better than handwritten letters. If it weren’t for Thomas, this dream would not have come true the way it has. I believe in laughter. I believe in surprises. I believe in details. I believe in you.

P.S. As a reference, I have a few blogs with “tips” to help you plan for your wedding and engagement session. I hope you enjoy our photographs; we can’t wait to hear from you!


Meghan Mike Wedding FIlm-81Allow me to introduce myself as the bag handling, film swapping, lens switching, umbrella holding, and accessory organizing half of the Emily Katharine Photography team. Aside from those ever-critical roles, I also occasionally take a photograph or two. You’ll usually find me laying on the pavement while snapping a shot of your shoes, inching slightly closer to capture your ring at just the right angle, or starring wildly into the sun searching for the sensationally mystifying and ever elusive “sunflare” opportunity. Sometimes, I even take a photo of you smiling.

All kidding aside, I am extremely excited about our photography practice. With Emily’s help, I’ve been able to turn a long time hobby into a wonderful trade. The most rewarding aspect of this business is connecting with the people we meet. Being able to take part in a friend’s wedding day, in addition to capturing their first moments as a married couple, is truly an honor.

Outside of composing life through a lens, I’m a huge finance nerd. Don’t ask because I’ll talk too much about it. I also enjoy reading, cooking, tossing the Frisbee with the dogs, snowboarding (which is pretty tough to do in Florida), golfing, and traveling.

Send us a message – we look forward to working with you!
