Choosing PBE is a decision you won’t regret. Emem makes effort to see that your fantasy or your dream photoshoot comes to life. Having photographed my family through the years i see the steady growth improvement she puts into her work evident in the pictures. The ambiance, the staff, professionalism and the outcome of my pictures were breathtaking

Emem is an AMAZING photographer! Not only is she the sweetest person, but she is absolutely wonderful with children. Her photographs are GORGEOUS and the amount of effort she puts forth is incredible. She makes sure to capture the best spots and poses and makes great edits. Her attention to detail and her ability to capture these perfect little moments is a testament to her talent. Thank you so much Ememsco of PortraitsbyEmem, can’t wait to book again with you.

Having Emem capture my images for my 40th was something I really looked forward to because I had been following up with her work for about 5years and was glued to her page all that while. Meeting with her in person gave me a lot more assurance that I was working with right person. Geeez...She's got Super powers that calms a storm. I had too many worries from being Camera shy to Styling as I had last minute disappointments with the dresses I ordered. She assured me that regardless of what I had available, her job was to make sure I got the best images. She saw through my personal style and helped bring to fruition all I had always imagined in my pretty head. The moment I walked into her studio, I felt Super Special reading the message they had on display for me and her staff guiding me through the photo session. I absolutely had the best time being photographed. Needless to say, I'm saving up for my next PBE experience.
