kind words & testimonials

Dear Emily, we cannot thank you enough for the pictures that have become so precious to us.

I searched all of Santa Barbara for a photographer that was not only wonderful to work with, but just amazing! I called Emily Hart-Roberts and she exceeded all of my expectations. She is someone you can completely trust to take the most amazing pictures for the most important day of your life.

We had our first photoshoot with Emily when our daughter was only 5 weeks old. Emily made us feel comfortable by coming to our house, taking photos that were not "staged," and even included our dog! We have since worked with her two more times, and will set up appointments every 6 months or so. She has such a keen eye for family moments; without being intrusive, she captures those tender interactions that only a skilled photographer can. The best part is her affordable prices, the retouched images, and her speedy turn-around time. We absolutely love Emily.

Emily is amazing!  She's an absolute natural with everyone from babies to adults.  We love her creative eye and her kind heart - in fact, she has become the one and only photographer choice for our family!

It is such a pleasure working with Emily. She is a true professional at capturing beautiful and natural images. She has an exceptional talent working with children. I'm amazed at the quality she's able to get from the sessions. Her camera equipment, and her eye for the perfect image, are the best!

Emily was fantastic to work with.  Our photo session was not stressful or rushed - even with a baby AND a dog!   She captured such natural photos with beautiful lighting that we will cherish forever.   

Emily Hart-Roberts was great to work with, and her photographs were amazing.  She photographed our family, from ages 8 to 84 years old at the beach on a windy day, and they turned out beautifully.  Emily was warm, friendly, and professional.  We love the photos she took for our family, and highly recommend her.  The creative ideas she had for arranging us were fun.  Emily has a good eye for beauty, a style for setting up shots, and knows how to create innovative photos in a natural setting.  We just love Emily Hart-Roberts, and her unique, stylish photography! 

We are grateful that Emily was able to take pictures that not only captured the beauty of our environment, but also the playfulness of our family.  She brought out the best in her choice of shots, and in the ways she suggested and directed the shots, in a spontaneous way we would never have imagined on our own.  Again, she is just amazing and wonderful, and we will definitely work with her again.

Dear Emily, We are so happy with the photographs you took of our wedding day. From the start to finish, you were a calm, helpful presence- warm, personable & professional. We felt confident in your ability to produce what we dreamed of from the day we met you, and you have given us the reality of that dream. Thank you!

We appreciate how easy Emily is to work with, and how intuitive. She's wonderfully gifted at being able to get a sense of what you might like, and even the kinds of shots you don't know enough to ask for... She's conscientious, unobtrusive, and professional, but the memory that lingers is how warm and friendly she makes the whole experience.

Thank you so much for the fabulous photography work you did at our wedding. You and your assistant were so friendly, fun, and easy to work with. And somehow, you managed to be in all the right places at all the right times, and yet were entirely unobtrusive. The photos are beautiful and genuine- we love them!...

I highly recommend Emily Hart-Roberts for any photography event. She photographed our wedding last September and I was more pleased than I ever thought I would be. Emily provides you with the photo-journalist approach and captures all of the details of the day. The most amazing part for us was the pictures of the actual ceremony. She captured not only the details of the ceremony but also the emotions happening for my husband, myself and our families- truly remarkable! The best part is that you aren't spending the entire wedding posing! I rarely ever saw her! She is able to capture absolutely everything and be completely in the back ground. I loved my pictures so much that I had to get the largest album I could find because I wanted to use all of them! The other truly wonderful quality about her is that she helps to keep things calm on this day full of nerves and emotions. I never once felt like I was on a timeline for my pictures. Emily will definitely be our photographer for any upcoming events the future....

On our wedding day, Emily captured moments to share and remember. Emily documented the essence of who we are, our personalities, our style individually and as a couple. Although our photographs prove that she was everywhere, we never noticed her. This is impressive since we have over 500 photographs of our wedding day. She told the story of our wedding, in a personal, touching and professional manner. Our albums are tasteful and beautiful. Emily is a pleasure to work with throughout the planning, event and post event phases. We plan to have Emily photograph all of our family milestones.
