"Mark and Emily are truly an amazing photography duo that we plan to use for years to come. Outside of the standard selfie and iPhone photos, my husband and I had never posed for professional photos. Mark and Emily made us feel very relaxed and were a blast to work with! I actually recommended them to a friend of ours, who's wedding took place a little over 2 months before ours. Mark and Emily were very responsive, helpful, and made us feel at ease. They were fast to turn around with previews of both the engagement session and the wedding photos and the rest of the photos followed not too long after! They sent us an unbelievable array of photos and we love them so much. We would highly recommend Thomson and Thomson Photography to anyone!"
Jessica & Maury - December 6, 2019
"Mark and Emily are two people you want around on your wedding day!!! From our first meeting through our wedding day, we had absolute confidence that they were right photographers for us. They are a great mix of professional and fun and made the two of us feel comfortable in front of a camera. They are super easy to work with and have every detail covered so you don't have to worry about anything on your big day! Our photos are absolutely gorgeous and can't wait to display them all over our home. Thanks again Mark and Emily and we will be definitely be calling to take photos of our family throughout the years!"
Lindsey & Dave - November 22, 2019
"Mark and Emily were AMAZING!! Extremely responsive, professional, and great senses of humor. We knew from our first meeting with them we had to book them. They picked up on our personalities and vibe we were going for immediately, shared recommendations, and accommodated all of our needs both leading up to and on our wedding day. Emily remarked they would be our 'unofficial wedding planners' keeping everything moving on schedule, and she was spot on, they were fantastic 'family wranglers'. All of the photos they captured were gorgeous, just what we wanted, and they turned them around quickly. Not only would we book Mark & Emily again for future events, but we would recommend them to friends & family without hesitation."
Amanda & Mike - October 19, 2019
"From first consultation, through to the final photos being sent, Mark and Emily were just amazing! I knew going in that I was going to need outgoing photographers who knew what they were doing and could keep me calm and not feeling shy or awkward in front of the camera during my wedding. We knew as soon as we met them, that Mark and Emily would do just that. First of all, they were very welcoming and made us both feel immediately at ease....which wasn't the case with a couple other photographers we met. They were also completely prepared not only with samples of their work, but they asked a ton of questions about our bridal party and our vision so they could plan the perfect day around us. Honestly my (now) husband and I turned to each other when we walked out of that first meeting and were like, 'these are our photographers.' Mark and Emily were super accommodating throughout the entire process to whatever our schedule needed (we rushed to do an engagement shoot so we could use the photos for our save the dates) and worked with us ahead of time to come up with a full day-of timeline so we knew who had to be where at what time for all the pictures. Plus, they walked the venue with us a couple weeks beforehand so we could decide together where on the property we wanted our pictures taken. I cannot thank them enough for everything they did for us at the wedding and all the special moments they captured for us! We got so many compliments on our photos with people saying 'they look better than real life', 'These are the best wedding photos I’ve ever seen.' They were that wonderful, calming, breath of fresh air that I needed throughout the day! Most importantly though, they are just SO talented at what they do. Our photos are absolutely stunning (this from someone who never thinks she is photogenic!) and I can't wait to share them with literally anyone who will look at them."
Stephanie & Vince - October 6, 2019
"Wow, what can we say? Mark and Emily were everything we could have hoped for and more in a wedding photographer. Their communication leading up to the wedding was great, especially for me who needs to know details are taken care of. They were so great at keeping things on schedule while still adapting to circumstances (and emotions) that came up! Guests forgot they were even there which is a compliment, meaning they got great pictures without “being in the way”. More than anything, the pictures were incredible!! We got a preview within a few days and the full gallery within 6 weeks! One of our guests said it best, 'the pictures truly captured every human emotion.' Honestly, some of my favorite pictures are on the dance floor because it gave a look at just how much fun our guests were having. We highly recommend Mark and Emily for any of your photography needs. They compliment each other well and you can trust the end result will be of the highest quality!"
Catherine & Billy - October 5, 2019
"We hired Mark and Emily following a referral from our friends and we are SO happy with our decision. Mark and Emily were so easy to work with throughout the process and very enjoyable the day of our wedding. We got a sneak peek back less than a week after our wedding and the full portfolio about six weeks later. The pictures came out beautifully and Mark and Emily don’t put any restrictions on us using the pictures, which was important to us. I would highly recommend Mark and Emily to any couples getting married or a photo shoot for another occasion!"
Kristin & Mark - September 21, 2019
"Could not have asked for a better photography team to shoot our wedding! They were easy to contact and communicate with, they fully embraced our silly personalities which shined in our wedding photos, and were so much fun to interact with during formal and informal shoots. Would highly recommend to any couple looking for flexible and down to earth photographers, as well as enjoyable and beautifully captured photographic moments of your wedding."
Amanda & Brendan - September 14, 2019
"Mark and Emily were terrific! Our engagement session and wedding day could not have gone any better. The are highly experienced, take excellent photos, and know how to move things along efficiently so that everything stays on or ahead of schedule. They have great senses of humor and are fun to be around, which makes posing for photographs a more enjoyable experience as opposed to an awkward one. These two are such an obvious choice for your big day that there's really no need to continue this part of your vendor search. Just book Mark and Emily asap and rest easy that you're in excellent hands."
Caitlen & Tom - August 3, 2019
"We can't recommend Thomson and Thomson enough! Mark and Emily were so accommodating and professional. We loved that they even came to the ceremony venue a few weeks before the wedding to see where they could get the best shots. We got married on one of the hottest days of the year, and Mark and Emily were extremely patient and supportive throughout the entire day. We were able to get all of the formal pictures we wanted without sweating to death due to their organization and professionalism. The pictures we have seen so far are beautiful and you would never know it was as hot as it was! Throughout the planning process, I always felt at ease when I met with Mark and Emily. They are exceptionally knowledgeable and talented."
Molly & Brian - July 20, 2019
"Mark and Emily make an amazing team! They were a huge factor in our wedding day running smoothly and being stress free. We found them via a friend's referral so we already knew the actual pictures would come out lovely. From our first contact, they were responsive and professional. You spend a large portion of your wedding day just taking photos so on top of the final product, it is important to pick a photographer that you enjoy being around. They were able to offer suggestions without being pushy and their proficiency made for more time to get to spend enjoying our wedding rather than taking photos. I would absolutely recommend them to all of my friends and family."
Stephanie & Mark - June 8, 2019
"Mark and Emily were truly the stars on our big day. They came fully prepared after having done a walk through with us of all of our locations (we had 3 - and they were not close together!) and getting to know us during our engagement shoot. They kept everything moving EXACTLY according to the timeline so we had plenty of time to enjoy cocktail hour and our guests, without feeling like our wedding was just one large photo shoot. Emily is an expert family-wrangler (seriously!) and they moved through portraits SO easily. They were so professional, so prepared, and so much fun to hang out with on our big day. And let's just say the PHOTOS ARE AMAZING. Truly breathtaking. They sent us a sneak peak the very next evening and we were SO excited to receive the full gallery. Everything was captured exactly as it occurred and there were some moments captured that I truly cannot thank them enough for. Look no further than Mark and Emily for your wedding photos - it will undoubtedly be an incredible decision."
Carmen & Connor - May 25, 2019
"We got married May 2019 and have the most amazing pictures to remember our special day all thanks to Mark and Emily! Right from our first meeting, we knew right away they we're the right fit for our big day. They are very professional and will put your mind at ease by pre-planning everything ahead of time. They even did a walk thru with us a month before hand at the venue and found hidden picture spots that we didn't even notice before! On our wedding day they were helpful keeping things going smoothly, but they were hidden all at the same time. We even had guests comment on how they didn't even notice our photographers during the whole event. The next day we got sneak peak photos, and about a month later we got over a thousand pictures! All the photos captured were truly amazing and we could not be any happier! We can't wait to make our full album! We hope to have Mark and Emily capture all our big special moments to come in the future! 10/10 recommend!"
Jennifer & Chris - May 10, 2019
"Pictures were one of the most important aspects of the wedding day for us. We decided early on that we wanted to have two photographers, and Mark and Emily were the perfect choice. While the wedding party was getting ready and en route, Mark worked with the guys and Emily stayed with the ladies to capture their hair/makeup, dress reveal, and other moments. It was great having two separate angles and styles for the ceremony and reception, and Mark and Emily worked very well as a team orchestrating larger family shots efficiently. Speaking of those family shots... we wanted a lot of them. Perhaps, objectively, a ridiculous number of different combinations. Mark and Emily were very patient and somehow got so many great pictures even as we were all braving the wind and cold at our reception venue. As an intelligent and capable adult man, I managed to cut myself shaving a day or two before the wedding, and that was visible in a lot of our guests' photos. Thomson and Thomson edited it out perfectly where relevant (and without me needing to mention it). Despite that, they still managed to get us teasers while we were still on the honeymoon and the curated set of ~1000 best takes within a month. Thomson and Thomson captured so many great moments from our wedding day. We are very grateful to have had them as our photographers, and highly recommend them."
Sarah & Tim - April 27, 2019
"Mark and Emily are amazing! They were with us from the save the dates and our wedding. Always very helpful and quick to respond to emails. Very professional, they provided helpful suggestions while listening to what we really wanted. They played a big role in our wedding day, helping us stay on time and keeping our large bridal party in line. We loved our pictures and hope to work with then again in the future. Would highly recommend:)"
Lizzie & Dan - February 16, 2019
"I can't say enough good things about Emily and Mark. First, they are brilliant photographers. They both have a remarkable ability to 'see' a photo, which made for gorgeous, unique, and interesting photos. We will have a really difficult time selecting which photos will go on walls and albums (and I'm not even one for hanging photos on walls--they just made legitimate art suitable for framing). Second but of equal importance, Emily and Mark are just really good, cool people. You don't realize until your wedding day just how much time you spend with your photographers, but its a lot. As I said to them on our wedding day, they were there to give us direction on how to not awkwardly position our hands or propose ideas for a creative first look, but blended perfectly into the background during intimate moments, like our vows and first dance. I wouldn't hesitate to book Mark and Emily over and over and over and can't recommend them enough."
Kate & Kyle - November 10, 2018
"Mark and Emily are an absolute pleasure to work with and they do amazing work! We had them shoot our engagement photos and our wedding and they consistently deliver exceptional results. We knew from our very first meeting that they were the photographers we wanted to work with. They are so easy to work with and really worked with us to understand what types of shots we liked and really took those requests to heart when shooting our wedding. They were complete professionals and were always early for every meeting or shoot to make sure they were ready to go. They work great as a team and I never felt uncomfortable. I probably would have invited them as guests to the wedding as they were so fun to be around! You really couldn't ask for a better service than what they offer and deliver. I highly recommend them and would absolutely love to work with them again!"
Alexis & Tony - October 5, 2018
"We loved working with Mark and Emily - by far our favorite wedding vendors that we worked with on our wedding day and for our engagement shoot! They went above and beyond to meet with us multiple times beforehand, as well as walk through the venue prior to the wedding so we were very comfortable working with them on the day. The finished photos were everything we could have hoped for! They did a wonderful job organizing everyone and knowing what photos needed to be taken so the posed photo sessions with family and friends went by very smoothly. They also are able to capture excellent candids! They offer such a unique perspective on the day, as Mark can follow the groom and Emily can follow the bride - resulting in photos that truly capture the entire experience. We can't say enough positive things and we would recommend them to any future wedding couple!"
Emily & Forest - September 22, 2018
"Mark and Emily are the best! We absolutely loved working with them! They took the time to contact us multiple times prior to our wedding day to make sure they knew everything about our venue and exactly what we wanted. The photos from our wedding are more than we could have ever wished for. They are absolutely beautiful! They were very organized and made sure we got all the pictures we wanted. They even did an amazing job capturing all the little details and the best candids! They make such a great team and it was so nice having both of them there on our wedding day. We are forever grateful that we had such amazing photographers to capture our special day!"
Sarah & Taylor - September 15, 2018
"Mark and Emily were so easy to work with and we are so thankful we chose them for our engagement and wedding photos. Not only do we have great posed shots, but we are so happy with the moments they caught in the candid photos. We felt like they really captured the happiest moments of the day and every single aspect of our wedding that was important to us. The video didn't make us cry- but the photos definitely did. We are having a tough time deciding what to put in our album because we genuinely love so many of the photos. You will not go wrong here."
Liliya & Jerry - September 2, 2018
"We are so thankful we chose Mark & Emily for our engagement photo shoot and wedding! They are a wonderful team that makes you feel at ease the instant you meet them. We received our photos so quickly and got a chance to relive the day all over again. Mark & Emily have unique perspectives behind the lens and the quality truly comes through in the photos. We loved all of the candid photos of guests, family and wedding party, and shots of the little details we weren’t able to focus on since the day was a complete blur! Thank you both for capturing all of these beautiful moments, we are forever grateful!"
Amanda & Brandon - September 1, 2018
"Emily and Mark were the absolute best, we couldn't have asked for more! Our wedding day was unfortunately rainy, but they acted the same as they would've if it were sunny- running around getting soaked so that we could get shots in all the areas we had hoped to. I have a large family that can be hard to corral, and we had 5 kids under the age of 5 in our wedding. I was a little worried going in, but they jumped right in and took charge like it was nothing. The detail shots, candids, first look photos, dancing, speeches..everything, all had beautiful photos. We ended up with close to 1000 photos, and couldn't be more pleased with each one! They're also incredibly nice people, and easily blended right in with the wedding party as we got ready. We loved working with them, an awesome pair who take beautiful photos."
Tanya & Rich - August 18, 2018
"We loved working with Mark and Emily! First and foremost, their photos are beautiful. We absolutely love them. They were also really easy to work with. They have very calm personalities (which is really needed on your wedding day) and are able to adapt their plans on the go. It rained the day of our wedding and they were able to change the plan to indoor photos and sneak us outside when the rain stopped. We also felt their prices were very fair. We learned about Mark and Emily from a friend, and we would be quick to recommend them to our friends."
Lauren & Ben - August 11, 2018
"We had the most wonderful experience working with Thomson and Thomson Photography! Mark and Emily were such a pleasure to be around, and are SO incredibly talented. We really appreciated that they took the time to meet with us at our venue several weeks prior to the wedding to review the sequence of the day, lighting, photo opportunities, and to listen to any preferences for arrangements, etc. We are so pleased with the photos they have taken - the quality is outstanding, and their attention to detail is second-to-none. Mark and Emily captured all of the best moments of our day (including some we didn't know happened!), and did so in an extremely professional and discrete way. We received many compliments from our guest - not just about the final photographs - but also about how thorough they were in capturing every moment and every guest. Selecting a wedding photographer was a big step in our planning process, and we couldn't be happier with our selection of Thomson and Thomson."
Julie & Lee - July 28, 2018
"I couldn't be more happy to leave a good review for Emily and Mark. Our experience with them was fantastic and I'd recommend them to anyone. Our first meeting with them was enjoyable and all of their information and terms were very clear. Their prices are great and they are very easy to work with. The day of, Emily and Mark were friendly, punctual and clearly pros at what they do. Emily even helped me with the clasp on my dress! The photos came out amazing and were available quickly. We could have never gone with any other photographers and would recommend them a million times over."
Susan & Jason - July 21, 2018
"Emily and Mark are fantastic! They are energetic, creative and 20 steps ahead of you throughout the process. We were thrilled to meet them and over the moon upon receiving the photos. Every shot they take is magical whether it is a closeup of an emotional embrace or a breath taking landscape of the ocean. We are so thankful and grateful for their level of expertise and involvement in our special day. The photos and our marriage are sure to last a lifetime. Thank you!!!"
Michelle & Nunzio - July 8, 2018
"We are thrilled to have had Emily and Mark as our wedding photographers! They are such incredible photographers who have truly mastered every aspect of what we were looking for - creative details, group shots, and unbelievable in-the-moment photos. Once we met them in person and saw their portfolios, we knew they were the perfect team for us. They are extremely kind, attentive, and easy to communicate with. Having never been professionally photographed before (and a bit camera shy), the opportunity for an engagement shoot was very helpful. Mark and Emily have an amazing, unobtrusive approach which really helped ease nerves, but offered suggestions and guided us through some shots for such beautiful results. On our big day, we felt so comfortable with them and barely felt their presence around us. They were incredibly thoughtful with helping us choose our first look location and other places around the venue, and didn’t flinch for one second in the 95+ degree weather and humidity. The in-the-moment photos during the first look and ceremony truly captured our emotions and we will forever treasure them. They also were extremely attentive to our happy guests, and we have countless amazing photos of everyone having an incredible time. We could not recommend them enough, and are above and beyond thrilled with their work!"
Susie & Marty - June 24, 2018
"Mark and Emily are both unbelievable photographers and people. We used them for both our engagement photos and wedding photos and could not be happier with our experience and the final results. On a professional level, Mark and Emily are extremely organized, reliable, and thorough. They clearly put a lot of effort into communicating with us to make sure all of our specific requests were met, while also adding some very helpful suggestions of their own that we greatly appreciated. This was so refreshing given our experience with some of our other vendors, who only seemed to be in touch when it was time to collect money. The final output from both the engagement photos and wedding photos is phenomenal. We have more amazing pictures than we know what to do with. On a human level, Mark and Emily are both very personable and a lot of fun to be around. They are the type of people you would want to have a beer with any time. A notable aspect of our wedding is that our beloved groomsmen could best be described as barbarians - they were rowdy and boozed up the entire day (including during the pre-wedding pictures). Not only did Mark and Emily have a great sense of humor about it, but they did an amazing job pulling these guys together for the formal pictures and also capturing their hilarious antics on the dance floor. We cannot say enough great things about the Thomsons, both professionally and personally. With all of the choices you will have to make for your wedding, let us make this one easy for you: book Mark and Emily ASAP!"
Rachael & Josh - June 23, 2018
"My husband and I were extremely pleased with Thomson and Thomson Photography from the very start! Emily and Mark were such a pleasure to work with. We were given their name from a friend from work who hired them for her wedding. They were very prompt with emails and responses. They set up an in person meeting within 2 weeks of my inquiring. Our engagement photos were just beautiful which set the tone for our wedding photos! We got married at Ocean Edge this summer. Mark and Emily made our day so special. They were very organized and prompt; we did not have to worry about one thing the whole day. They coordinated everything the day of our wedding, even asked the band to announce to guests to sign the guestbook and use the flip flops we had bought for dancing! Mark and Emily were able to capture our personalities in our wedding photos; the candid photos are our favorites . We would recommend Mark and Emily to all of my friends and family looking to hire a photographer. They are such kind people and were truly a pleasure to work with. We could not have chosen better photographers."
Meghan & Phil - June 9, 2018
"Absolutely amazing! They were great the entire time and were able to handle everything, even people wandering off. I cant wait to get the rest of the images the sneak peak was fantastic. Would highly recommend them for anything."
Tyslie & Justin June 3, 2018
"The best!!! I cannot say enough just how amazing it was to work with Mark and Emily. The day after our wedding we received a number of beautiful “sneak peaks.” It made reminiscing the day after that much better. The day of the wedding they arrived early and got right to work. Mark went to the grooms suite and Emily stayed in the bridal suite. Emily helped me stay on time and helped to organize when it was time for me to put my dress on. She set up the room beautifully for the perfect background. Having two photographers allowed us to get every moment captured. The pictures came out stunning. It could have been chaotic to have such a large bridal party and family trying to take pictures, but with Mark and Emily it was not. They stuck to their timeline while taking every single picture that I had asked. The posed group shots went by smoothly, calmly and quickly, and they came out amazing! My husband and I had so much fun working with Mark and Emily. They made our day perfect! They were always quick to respond to any question I might of had. In less than 30 days after my wedding I had all of my wedding photos in hand. They came out incredible! I would highly recommend them to any bride and groom!! You won’t be disappointed!"
Caroline & Marc May 27, 2018
"If you're looking for wedding photographers these are you people!! The work they do is absolutely stunning, they both have an eye and a talent to capture a moment, making it last forever. They truly want to make it your day and what you want, and while they did a great job being unobtrusive on the day, the passion they have was also very evident. We cannot say enough about Mark and Emily as people, but also professionally. We could not be happier with the photo's from our wedding and I can promise you you will not be disappointed. They are incredible."
Meredith & Adam - May 12, 2018
"Mark & Emily were absolutely great on our wedding day! They created a schedule for us to make sure we got every picture we wanted and they came out perfectly! They worked so well together coordinating our very large wedding party as well as capturing really special moments that we will forever be able to look back on. They were professional, direct and extremely organized which helped the day go very smoothly, I would definitely recommend them to all future couples!"
Leslie & Fran - April 21, 2018
"Mark & Emily were completely incredible to work with! From the moment we met with them, we knew that they were an excellent fit for what we wanted in our wedding photographers. They are both so kind, patient, and talented – and their stellar portfolio speaks for itself. We were initially impressed with all of the amazing shots they were able to get during our engagement session. We were in awe of all of the pictures we received back and were impressed with what a keen eye they both have for capturing unique, personalized moments that often incorporate the beautiful natural patterns and views of your surroundings/environment. After receiving our wedding pictures back, we were similarly amazed at their high-caliber work. We got married at the Museum of Science, which lent itself to an incredibly diverse array of photo opportunities. Mark & Emily were completely on board with every location and idea we wanted to try out and were able to expertly guide us in getting some astounding pictures. They are everything we could have hoped for and more. From getting ready, to first looks, to the ceremony, and the dance party, they did such an amazing job capturing every moment of the day and we feel so lucky to have been able to work with them as our photographers – we wouldn’t have wanted anyone else. We will forever cherish the memories that exist in the thoughtfulness of each shot and are so excited to share their work with our friends and family. Overall, we highly recommend working with “Thomson and Thomson Photography” and are looking forward to other opportunities in the future to be able to work with them again!!"
Matthew & Peter - March 24, 2018
"We first saw Mark and Emily from Thomson and Thomson photography at my cousins wedding and after watching how they operated on the wedding day and seeing their photos, we knew we wanted them to capture our special day as well. Choosing Thomson and Thomson Photography was one of the BEST decisions we ever made. From the day we first formally met Mark and Emily, in person, they instantly made us feel like friends. They are so down to earth and have a great sense of humor, which makes everything that much easier and enjoyable. On top of being attentive, personable, and extremely kind, Mark and Emily know how special this day is to you and they really make it about you. The day of our wedding they really let the day unfold and captured the essence of it perfectly, without putting any pressure on anyone! Just two days after the wedding we were lucky enough to receive a sneak peak of about 15 photos and they were absolutely amazing. The preview made us so excited to receive all our photos and just a month after our wedding we received the MOST BEAUTIFUL pictures. They truly captured exactly what we were looking for and highlighted all the great moments of our wedding. I can’t say enough great things about Mark and Emily! They will help make your wedding the day you always dreamed of and capture all the best moments for you to hold onto forever!"
Kelli & Luke - October 14, 2017
"Mark and Emily were our photographers for our wedding at The Colonnade Hotel in October 2017, and they did a phenomenal job at capturing our day! When searching for photographers, we were very critical and interviewed with almost every photographer available on theknot.com. However, when we met with Mark and Emily we were confident that they would be a great fit, because of their open line of communication, organization and passion/skills about taking great photos. These characteristics were evident on our wedding day, as they kept us on our schedule, were able to quickly improvise to get us the perfect photos, and our end results were beautiful. We loved all of our photos and couldn't be happier! We also loved all of our engagement photos too! They are highly recommended!"
Kristen & Brandon - October 7, 2017
"I can not begin to say enough wonderful things about Mark & Emily Thomson. Right from the moment we met I knew they were the perfect photographers for our big day and they did not disappoint. They were kind, patient and really listened to what we wanted captured the day of our wedding. They truly captured every moment and detail that was important to us and told an incredible story of our wedding day through photos. We were married on a family owned dairy farm that was not set up in any way shape or form for a wedding and Mark and Emily were so flexible and creative when it came to shooting our wedding (they were even amazing at incorporating our dog in many photos). We recieved our pictures back in about a month and they were incredible. The lighting, the scenery, the emotions, everything was captured. They truly were beyond a pleasure to work with and I hope some day to have the opprutunity to work with them again. Please consider hiring them for your wedding, you will not be disappointed!!"
Danielle & Harry - September 23, 2017
"Mark and Emily were our photographers at our wedding at the Boston Harbor Hotel this fall. For my husband and I, finding the right photographers were amongst the top of our priority list and we spent a great deal of time researching and meeting with prospects. If any of you are in this same boat - look no further, Mark and Emily are quite honestly the best. Both of them bring a different perspective to their photography which gives a great outcome in their photos. They were also SO great to work with, very accommodating and receptive to ideas of what we were looking for. Great attention to detail and captured our personalities and the energy of the night perfectly. We’ve received so many compliments on our photos and couldn’t be happier with how they turned out. Quite simply, we would absolutely recommend Mark and Emily to anyone and everyone."
Kaitlin & John - September 10, 2017
"Mark and Emily were fantastic. When beginning our search for photographers, they made us feel at ease, answering our every question and noting things we might have forgotten. It's so important to have two photographers capturing shots throughout the wedding; their chemistry and laid back attitude proved to be an important characteristic throughout. They really have an eye for the creative shots—we loved the photos they took at our wedding (and our engagement session, too). Even with questionable weather, they were flexible with shooting and were able to capture the precious moments at the exact time they happened. We especially LOVED our first-look photos. We'd certainly recommend them to anyone who is looking to have the photos from their special day tell the perfect story."
Katherine & Mike - September 8, 2017
"Hire them! Mark & Emily are fantastic! Beautiful & ORIGINAL photos! You will feel comfortable, confident and beautiful! They Are worth your trust!!"
Kelsey & Andrew August 19, 2017
"Incredible is the only word fitting to describe Mark and Emily! Right from our first meeting with them, we knew we had made the right decision. They are so welcoming and immediately made us feel so comfortable. They had never been to our venue before so we set up a walk through a few weeks before our wedding this past August. They both have such a creative eye and saw spots to take pictures that I would never have looked twice at! The day of the wedding, they we’re so helpful keeping us on time while still getting all the pictures we had wanted. I don’t always love having my picture taken, but I felt so at ease with both Emily and Mark. It was easy to relax and enjoy myself, and that absolutely came through in the pictures. The whole day was filled with so much love and laughter, and they captured all of it. The pictures all came out beautiful and we couldn’t be happier with our choice to use Thomson and Thomson Photography! The easiest decision you could make while planning your wedding is booking Emily and Mark to be your photographers!"
Jenn & Matt - August 12, 2017
"Emily and Mark are a great team! They were easy to work with, made us feel comfortable, and were able to direct our families and friends to accommodate all of the photo combinations that we wanted, which isn't always an easy task. Our sneak peek was amazing - and they successfully captured our faces when we had a couple surprises at the wedding. We were extremely happy with our engagement photos and can't wait to see wedding pictures!"
Emily & Jon - July 21, 2017
"Mark and Emily are great! They shot our wedding back in June and we could not have asked for a better team to help capture the best day ever! They had never shot a wedding at our venue before so they set aside some time with us before our big day to come down and take a walk through the venue and the places we wanted formal photos. It definitely put our minds at ease knowing they were so dedicated to making sure they were well prepared for our big day. All of our pictures came out wonderfully and we had such a hard time narrowing them down to put into our album! We wish we could have put them all in! One of our wedding guests was a professional photographer and she commented to me how she was very impressed that Mark and Emily seemed to be capturing the right moments and moving around to get great angles! Mark and Emily are professional, fun, hardworking and very easy to get along with! We would highly recommend Mark and Emily to anyone looking for a photographer especially one for their wedding!"

"The best photographer team! They captured our day perfectly. They are professional, personal, creative, and easy to work with. Highly recommend them."
Heather & Kevin - June 10, 2017
"Mark and Emily were wonderful to work with and our wedding pictures came out amazing! They really made an effort to capture all the images we discussed even when the weather was not cooperating. They blended in with our guests and were able to catch many special moments that we will be able to share with our friends and family! They were extremely professional and we couldn't have made a better selection. Thank you for documenting the most important day of our lives!!!!"
Melissa & Greg - May 6, 2017
"Emily and Mark were so fantastic - everything we could have hoped for in a wedding photographer and more. We wanted a photographer that was able to understand us as a couple, get the pictures important to us, and make sure to capture all of the candids from our New Year's Eve wedding. And they did exactly that! Mark and Emily are husband and wife who communicate perfectly, and their relationship allows them to bring you an extra level of service. We were so impressed with them through the whole process, but especially when we talked to them the day before our wedding and they had been near the hotel and venue scoping out sights! They incorporated everything we had asked for - with the perfect combination of creativity and seriousness. Their photos are perfect and prices are very reasonable - you would be crazy not to choose Mark and Emily to shoot your wedding!"
Liesl & Doug - December 31, 2016
"Emily and Mark were incredible. We were impressed from the day we met them! We planned our entire wedding within 3 months and could not have pulled it off so well without them. They are professional, kind, understanding and they know their stuff. As soon as they left I received comments from guests about how the photographers seemed to be "in all the right places at the right times". So far, the pictures are stunning and I have referred them to 3 couples already. I highly recommend Emily and Mark."
Jordana & Nate - November 12, 2016
"One of the best decisions we made for our daughter's wedding was to trust in and hire Mark and Emily Thomson as our photographers. They came highly recommended from a friend and we could not be more pleased with this choice. They first did the engagement photos and then the wedding. They will continue to be our family's photographers capturing life's most joyous moments! We are forever grateful to them!"
Amanda & Cody - November 5, 2016
"Mark and Emily were the first photographers we met with and immediately knew we were done looking! They were so easy going and responsive to what my husband and I were looking for. They took the time to meet us at the venue prior to the wedding to see the space and to get ideas of where to photograph. They found the best spots for us to be photographed and we couldn't be happier with how all the photos came out! The staged shots are great, but the candid shots they managed to take throughout the night were amazing. They really captured how everyone was feeling that night. An amazing couple to work with we couldn't have been happier with the results!!"
Erin & Chris - October 14, 2016
"Our wedding was a week ago, so we don't have all of our photos in yet, but I can confidently write a 5-star review for this couple who exceeded expectations and whose "sneak peak" photos are beyond impressive. I do not know how anyone gets by with just one photographer. Mark & Emily are an amazing team and absolutely killed it at the wedding! They are professional, organized, creative, and direct us appropriately to get all of our desired photos taken (you NEED someone to tell you where to go due to the endless distractions); at the same time, not overbearing. We made the best of a rainy, windy day - amidst the COMPLETE last-minute change from outdoors to indoors wedding. The two really pulled it together for us immediately once we found out the ceremony AND reception would not be outside - which is what I had in mind and planned for MONTHS (thank goodness for a plan-B). Mark and Emily still managed to take us outside with large umbrellas keeping us dry; while working together in high winds to keep themselves and their equipment dry, in great efforts to take a few outdoor gazebo photos (which, for months, I dreamt of). They are the whole package, the real deal. We're glad we said "yes", to our outstanding photographers!"
Natalie & Matt - October 9, 2016
"Mark and Emily were the very first "vendors" that we hired for our wedding. The second we met them, I felt so comfortable and hired them immediately. I had no doubts that we made the perfect choice. Two weeks prior to the wedding, they both met us on site to scope out our venue and go over ideas we had and even helped me plan the perfect "surprise" first look. They put my mind at ease and I never once worried. Come wedding day, they arrived early and looked very professional. They were able to orchestrate all of the photos I wanted on my "must have" list in no time! They were so efficient in taking pictures, that it allowed me and my husband to fully enjoy our wedding with our loved ones. Now let's talk about Emily and Mark. They were willing to do just about anything to get the perfect shot! Including Emily going for a hike down a mountain and hiding in ferns (and God knows what else!), and Mark carrying a massive ladder with him to get perfect ariel shots. They were so subtle during the ceremony, I even caught myself looking around to make sure they were there! (I hate those photographers that are up in your face ruining the moment for everyone else!) A few days later, they sent us beautiful sneak peak photos while wee were on our honeymoon! We were so excited to see how beautiful they came out and what they captured. About 3 weeks later they let me know our thumb drive was in the mail! We got it the very next day! 826 beautifully edited photos later, my husband and I were left stunned. Keep in mind, I got the photos about a week ago and am just now getting a chance to write this review because I have been reviewing these photos on replay for the past week! They captured beauty, candids, artistic shots, shots I couldn't have ever dreamed of! We are still in awe. If you have any doubts about who to hire, think no further and hire Mark and Emily. We are so happy we did and that our perfect day was captured in such a perfect way."
Ashley & Billy - October 8, 2016
"Mark and Emily were an absolute pleasure to work with for our wedding photography. They are such an easy and fun couple to get along with - we felt like we've known them for years. Our wedding pictures are absolutely stunning! They captured every moment beautifully. We couldn't be happier with our photos and highly recommend them!"
Lauren & Ryan - September 23, 2016
"Emily and Mark are amazing. I've had the pleasure of working with them at two weddings (my own, and my best friends) this year and their work is incredible. There is nothing better than feeling like you are among friends on your wedding day - and that is exactly how Emily and Mark make you feel. Both Emily and Mark take great pride in their work and understand the importance of YOUR wedding day. I could not say enough good things about Thomson and Thomson Photography. I tell everyone I know to book them for their wedding and you should too!"
Susan & Geoff - September 10, 2016
"Let's just say, I don't think there are enough words to describe just how awesome Mark and Emily were. Minutes into our initial meeting we were sold -- we knew they were a perfect fit for our wedding. They are so down to earth, hard -working, easy to work with, responsive and fun! They understood exactly what were looking for in our wedding photos and captured the day beautifully. We are BEYOND THRILLED with how our pictures turned out. We continue to get so many compliments about our photos from friends and family, even from people who weren't at our wedding. Most of all we love how the pictures really tell the story of our day. I don't think you get that with just any wedding photographer, so I think that speaks to Mark & Emily's experience and understanding of what we were looking for. I will be recommending them to all of our friends and family."
Amy & Gerry - August 13, 2016
"Emily and Mark were absolutely wonderful to work with and our pictures our fantastic! Thomson and Thomson Photography met all of our expectations and then some. From the first meeting to the follow up after the wedding, Emily and Mark are professional yet warm, non-pushy but confidently capable. We heard from guests that they were always present but never in a way that interfered. They made a special effort to meet with us as went through the planning process, ensuring our day went smoothly and we got the pictures we wanted. Their little extras and attention to even non-photograph details was very much appreciated. We loved how we received our photographs and their turnaround time was incredibly fast (which is a good thing because after seeing our sneak peek photos we definitely wanted to see the rest!). Our wedding photos are beautiful and capture all of the emotions of our special day. We couldn't have asked for better wedding photographers. We highly recommend them!"
Jessica & Tony - July 30, 2016
"Mark and Emily did an amazing job working with all the different people in our wedding party and helping us get all of the pictures we wanted. Our pictures were stunning and Mark and Emily could not have been more positive and pleasant to work with! I would recommend them to anyone!"
Samantha & Lyman - July 2, 2016
"Mark and Emily photographed our wedding this past June 2016 and we could not have been more thrilled with our choice!! Mark and Emily were not only professional and organized but also made us feel comfortable on what could have been an otherwise stressful day. These traits were evident in the quality of the photos that we received. We would absolutely recommend Mark and Emily and hope to be in touch in the future!"
Hilana & Drew - June 25, 2016
"Emily and Mark were recommended by a friend of ours, and from the moment that we initiated contact, they were very responsive. They gave us a clear idea of what their vision was, and how they would be working with us on our special day. They met with us at the wedding venue well in advance of the event in order to plan the specifics of the day. They had a bunch of great ideas on how to use the gorgeous natural surroundings, and were very accommodating and responsive to our own needs; we felt very comfortable in their hands. On the day of, they were the perfect blend of friendly and professional; they unobtrusively took some amazing candid shots (which is exactly what we wanted), and yet were also able to deftly manage situations that called for a little more presence (such as gathering groups of people together for formal shots). The final photos were delivered to us within a couple of weeks after the event, and they were absolutely stunning. We would love to work with them again, and would recommend them unequivocally!"
Sadia & G - June 17, 2016
"Working with Mark and Emily was fantastic! They were professional, nice and the final photos are beautiful. Before the wedding they met with us and walked around the venue to help us decide what we wanted during the wedding. Their suggestions were really helpful and made the day of the wedding go more smoothly. During the "first look" photos they helped calm our nerves. Then they were able to make the family photos fun relaxed situation. Finally, during the ceremony and reception they took great photos that captured some very sweet and funny moments of just about everyone at the wedding."
Kelsey & Andrew - May 29, 2016
"Mark and Emily were amazing and super fun to work with! They really understood what we were looking for, and our personalities really came through in the photos! We really appreciated them coming down and doing a run through at our venue, and the turn around time was the fastest I've ever heard . Would recommend to anyone getting married!"
Jessica & Patric - May 21, 2016
"I couldn't have been more happy to work with Mark and Emily of Thomson and Thomson Photography. We found it very professional and personal that they offered to meet with us after a few email exchanges so we could get to know each other. They were the first ones to bring up timing of the year for sunlight, etc as well as to go out to the property for our future pictures. We had them do our engagement pictures, which came out amazing! Mark and Emily were more than game to meet us at our favorite spot in Massachusetts to take the photos. I had many questions along the way and they were always quick to respond and they always put me at ease. I'm so glad we all went to the venue to check out the landscapes and plan our agenda. I was so nervous about how everything would come together with the DJ, photographer, and wedding coordinator, but Emily and Mark lead everything flawlessly. Everyone always new where and when they were supposed to be and we were able to do all of the pictures we wanted within the timeframe we had planned - and we had a lot of people involved in our pictures! We received so many compliments from family and friends about how organized, professional, and fun they were to work with. As for the wedding pictures they took, we also couldn't be more happy with them! They took every picture we had on our list and we have so much variety in them as well! These pictures are not your standard wedding pictures. I think this is what I like about their style best - they take care to get to know the bride and groom so that the real essence comes out in the photos as well as the happiness and energy of a sunny April day! I think I saw that from the beginning when I initially looked at their website and photo albums and I'm so glad it came out in ours. Highly highly recommend and can't say enough good things about Thomson and Thomson photography!"
