Really lovely person and amazing photos!

Really lovely person! Had such a great zoom meeting before the wedding to discuss priorities and what photos we wanted. Then on the day she was so great. Even helped me get ready cuz I was panicking and my sister and mother weren鈥檛 ready either (of course)! The photos are so beautiful and she was so great at finding places in Chelsea to take photos by before the day. I can鈥檛 wait to see the full catalog of images and would highly recommend her!

She's absolutely wonderful & you'll be more than pleased!

Emily truly is an outstanding photographer! We had our first photoshoot with her just after getting engaged & hope to have many more in the future!
I had a very clear vision as to what I wanted the photos to be and she exceeded that times hundred! She ensured a very calm atmosphere and naturally guided us along the journey. We didn't feel any pressure or stiffness which is honestly so important when you're not professional models.
She also was very kind to stick to our initially set date eventhough had a change of plans herself. Arrived at the location perfectly on time and straight from the airport. Now, if that's not true dedication to your craft, I don't know what is.
The first photos came incredibly quickly and the whole gallery was sent to us within the time period stated in the contract. Very professional!
As to the final part, the photos themselves, I can't express how lovely they came out! I would't want them any other way and just couldn't imagine such a sweet, honest, light & deeply romantic photography for me and my husband to be. We loved every single one and couldn't thank her enough for the wonderful gift of her immense talent.
Did I say she was also super sweet and funny in person? Well, I honestly could't have dreamt of a better photoshoot experience. Highly, highly recommend! :)

Emily Montay is THE BEST - 5 out of 5 stars

We found Emily by chance and it was the best decision we made. We decided to do our legal wedding at the local courthouse in London, followed by a small home reception, and Emily covered it all. She was incredibly easy to work with, and made my camera shy husband feel more comfortable as we did ''plan-did's''. Both the indoor and outdoor photography was equally stunning, and she captured the day perfectly!

Good human who takes beautiful photos

Emily is a joy to work with, she makes an effort to understand your wishes and advises if you're not sure what you want. She's been lovely and accommodating, very flexible and most of all, took beautiful shots. She makes you feel very comfortable which results in very natural photos. Highly recommend!

The Best Romantic/Travel Photoshoot Experience

Emily was so responsive, open to our ideas/feedback and flexible with timing/location! We can be a bit uncomfortable in front of the camera and she helped make the shoot feel totally natural and fun! So grateful to have these stunning pictures from our trip to London!
