The Art of Emotion is composed of a family of award-winning wedding photographers in the San Francisco bay area. Capturing emotion is the 'focal point' of The Art of Emotion wedding photography. Documenting the start of your life together through photography is an art.

Choosing your wedding photographer can be viewed as the most important choice of your wedding day (aside from your choice of groom or bride!). It is the photographer who bears the responsibility to record your memories, document your day, tell the visual story. It's an investment in your memories. Those photos are irreplaceable; being a photographer is a huge responsibility and a great honor.

Choosing a wedding photographer is also an art as you will want your photographs to reflect who you are as a couple. You can't recreate a wedding, so photography is the ultimate documentary assignment and the photographer has only has one chance, one 'shot'. As time goes by after the wedding, everything else is going to be forgotten and only remembered through the photographs. In one survey, a year after the wedding many brides felt that they should have spent less on the dress and more on the memories. Memories are priceless. By choosing the right photographer, it's possible to relive your wedding day through your wedding images.

Contemporary wedding photography involves informal photojournalism, that shows more genuine emotions. Likely illustrative photography will also be used, setting the scene and stepping back for a spontaneous feel. Most contemporary wedding photography aims for candid shots from a distance, usually catching real moments. Posed or formal photography is usually used only for family formal portraits. In the San Francisco bay area, the wedding photography trend is using photojournalism, candid photography along with illustrative artistic style. Typically digital photography has the advantage of ease of posting online and taking more pictures in the day.
