What we do:

Carolyn Emberley Photography works in weddings, events, portraits, and product photography. Senior class portraits, engagements, newborns? Yeah, we do all that. The grand opening of your yoga studio? We do that too. How about a glamorous pinup or boudoir shoot for a birthday present? Images of your latest artwork? A few shots to commemorate a dinner party? Photos can be both memories and art, a record of what happened, and a creation of a story. Be creative with what you want photographed, and you'll be rewarded with creative images. Due to the variety of shoots possible, please contact us with details for a quote. A typical 1-2 hour portrait session is $250.


Here at Carolyn Emberley Photography, our goal is to let you shine, to capture the small moments, gestures, and glances that are authentic and memorable. It's your day after all! The photographer should be there to record those special moments, not dictate or intrude upon them. To that end, our style leans towards the photo-journalistic. We begin our relationship with a consultation to get a sense for the mood you would like captured and what shots are important to you. We will communicate again closer to the date to firm up details for the big day.

We understand that waiting is hard, so within a week of your wedding, we will post a few proofs to a private website for you to view. Your fully edited photos will be available within 2-6 weeks of the event, depending on the season and our schedule. A DVD of high-quality files of all of the edited shots will be mailed to you, in addition to posting the images to a password protected website. You will be able to share that website with your friends and family, and you will all be able to order high-quality prints and albums from there.

Since every wedding (and every budget!) is different, we don't have one set menu of options, but will work with you to create a package that meets your needs. Want photos of the bride prepping? We can do that. Want the whole shebang, start to finish, with multiple angles and a video? That can be arranged. On a budget, and just want a few portraits of the couple and their family after the ceremony? We can do that too. Please don't hesitate to contact us with your needs, and we can provide a quote. An average package of roughly 6 hours including the ceremony; portraits of the couple, bridal party, and families; and a few hours of the reception, with two photographers, and some specialty artistic edits of select photos typically costs around $2000.

We are based out of Somerville, MA and generally service the greater Boston area and a three hour driving radius. However, we are very willing to travel for an additional fee.
