Linera learned the importance of photography when she welcomed her son into the world. “Watching him grow and change every day filled me with joy and a pinch of sadness simultaneously. I could feel the time pass by very quickly and I wanted to find a way to hold on to the memories. I have found my greatest passion in capturing emotions and celebrating life and love through photography.”
We selected Linera to be our photographer. Linera met with my wedding planner and I a couple of days ahead of the wedding. We discussed my vision and concerns and she absolutely listened and delivered! Linera did a great job at capturing every special moment even in Central Park on a very hot day. She was wonderful to collaborate with and make my vision come to life in our photos. We are so grateful to Linera and the entire Emma Cleary team for delivering a product that we will have to remember our special day forever. If you are looking for a wedding photographer who will listen to you, collaborate with you, be extremely professional, but also deliver her own creativity, Linera is the perfect choice.
Linera was our lead photographer and she gave amazing direction and advice. While doing our bridesmaids photos, she suggested some of my bridesmaids give me some marriage advice during the shots, which was so thoughtful and made those photos even more special. We felt extremely comfortable with her during all of our photos and we are beyond happy with the end results. Linera offered great posing direction and was so patient with our family and large group. They took amazing candid and reception photos. They really captured what our guests were feeling and experiencing during the evening. We had our 3 year old nephew in the photos as well, and he did not want to be there lol, but some of the photos they took of him are my absolute favorite!
Linera, you're amazing and fantastic and thank you for helping me stay calm. I cannot recommend Emma's team enough to all the brides out there. My day was a mess (lateness, covid, people not showing, etc) and I can barely remember how happy I was - it is a whirlwind of a day, it is overwhelming, it is too short! You NEED fantastic photos, you need videography, and you need the quality Emma and her team give you.
We had Linera and David for photo and Angel and Joseph for video. From my first phone call with Emma it was clear that she was so knowledgeable and professional, covering all details. She provided a clear timeline for the day and worked alongside my wedding planner to ensure timelines aligned properly. The team arrived on time the day of and kept us on track for first look, church ceremony, etc... All team members were friendly and fun and gave us creative direction, while making us feel so comfortable! They were such a pleasure and we are so happy with the end results. We didn't give much direction as to where we wanted our first look and group photos but they scouted out such perfect spots on our family farm where we had our wedding. The team has such a great eye for what they do! Our photo and video are so beautiful and we got so many compliments from friends and family!
Linera and Ryan were an absolute joy to work with.
They were the perfect compliment to Vinny and my personality.
Both gave great instructions and recommendations and made us very comfortable. I am thankful that you paired us with them. We are thrilled with the way Linera and Ryan captured this special day for us. There are so many gems.
