Alisa Kren Review Patience and Thyme

“Patience & Thyme are phenomenal! We chose them to capture our wedding day. They were easy to work with from start to finish. We were amazed at how well they blended in with our family, guests, and the venue. As a couple we were worried that the cameras would feel intrusive, especially during our private moments, but honestly, we forgot they were there and made us feel comfortable. Em & Mike helped make our day go so smoothly. They produced high quality video and photos in a timely manner. Highly Recommend!”

“I have worked with Emily on multiple shoots and they have all turned out amazing. Whether capturing mother-daughter pictures or my multiple boudoir sessions, she always manages to catch the most perfect angles and lighting. Emily makes you feel at ease in any setting and is great with providing feedback and support as she helps you strike the perfect pose. I highly recommend her for your next photo session, whether family or for something a bit sexier.”

“Emily captured everything that we wanted for our son’s Senior pictures. We wanted to show his personality, passion for soccer, and the small town we raised him in. Emily made our vision come true, she was very professional, fun and I trusted her expertise whole heartedly. She is an incredibly talented photographer with a meticulous eye. Emily put dedication and creative vision in every pose, depicting the moment perfectly. My family had a wonderful experience and will cherish these picture forever”.”

Tracy Warmington-Smith Review Patience and Thyme

“My daughter is not comfortable being the center of attention but Emily's personality put her at ease so that her true personality came through in her photos from her Senior Session.”

Diana Pressnell Review Patience and Thyme

“My daughter was really struggling with self image when I reached out to Patience & Thyme. I wanted to get pictures taken for her birthday, but desperately wanted someone to be able to capture how amazing my daughter is, so that she could see her own beauty. Emily not only took incredible pictures that day, but she gave my daughter a truly wonderful gift. She captured my daughter’s spirit and helped her see the beauty she holds, inside and out. Thank you for your talent & kindness during that difficult time.”

Sara Smith Review Patience and Thyme

“I can't say enough about Emily! She did an amazing job with my hard to shoot son! She made him enjoy his picture being taken! She is amazing and no one else will take our pictures from here on out! Best Team in Ohio!”

Shayla Wray Review Patience and Thyme

“We've had such positive experiences with our multiple photo sessions with Emily and Patience & Thyme. Emily is extremely organized, and she makes everyone (even crazy kids and apprehensive husbands) feel comfortable and relaxed! She makes the session fun and helps you pose to ensure your photos turn out beautifully! She is a talented editor that creates perfectly curated collections of priceless memories. She has always delivered the galleries in record time too! I can't recommend Patience & Thyme enough!”

Courtney Koverman Review Patience and Thyme

“I cannot express how fortunate we are to have such a high caliber local media company. Whether keeping us live and up-to-date on local sports events during a time many of us would be left in the dark; or whether blessing us with spectacular photography...They always impress us with their innovation and creativity. Thank you Emily and Michael for your talent and vision.”

Julie Sykes Review Patience and Thyme

“Emily took my daughter's first birthday photos and she did an amazing job! She was able to capture so many great images and make my little one feel comfortable during the process. Emily went above and beyond to ensure we got just what we wanted to capture that special day. I look forward to working with her again to capture other photos for my family!”

Kara Anderson Review Patience and Thyme

“They captured our proposal and did an amazing job. Can’t wait to have them photograph our wedding March 2022!”

Alicia Sickles Review Patience and Thyme

“Lucas had the most awesome photo shoot with Emily! She came to our home, allowing Lucas to be in a comfortable space! It took no time for Lucas to warm right up to her, showing her all of his fancy football and basketball moves. He even picked out a great pic place on our bench in the dining room. Not only was Emily professional but she was warm, friendly and patient. She did an amazing job capturing his personality!❤️”

Steve Johnson Review Patience and Thyme
