I can make a person who doesn’t like to take pictures (hint-hint some “macho” grooms) feel very comfortable taking pictures.

A fun fact about me

I always say “act as if you are happy” when I’m doing photography especially at events where there are a lot of people around. That has never failed to work.

    Emil was fantastic. His response time was phenomenal. We sent him a message on a Sunday to do a family session on that following Wednesday. He responded with the request within a few minutes. At the shoot, he was very personable and worked so well with a three month old who was in and out of being fussy. Thanks so much for your wonderful work, Emil.

    We just contracted Emil for a surprise drive-in quinceanera for my daughter since hers was delayed due to Covid19. He was incredible. His communication was superb, he accommodated all our requests and the pictures were absolutely beautiful. We've gotten so many compliments. We will definitely utilize him again.

    We had our family shoot scheduled a month in advance just so that just so they cancel 2 days before. I scrambled to find another (Bc it's hard to have everyone in the family together) so I went on Yelp and found Gasparian photography. He had really great reviews so I decided to call him, extremely nice and he set the appointment. I was about 30 mins late but no issue he took care of us and most importantly the photos came out great!!!! I highly!! Recommend him for a photo shoot.

    Emil Gasparian is not only a professional smart photographer, he's also very friendly and patient with his customers. He did my family photo shoot and the photos turned out to be so adorable, beautiful, chic and natural. He also managed to deal with my toddler and my baby to get the best pictures possible. He made jokes and played games with my toddler to get him to settle down for the pictures. We're very lucky to get to know him and I'm definitely considering him for any a future photo session. Thank you Emil!

    I organized my family pictures and needless to say I couldn't be more thrilled with the pictures. Emil was wonderful, took multiple angles and most of all extremely patient with our little ones. We hope to use him again on our other events . Booking process was easy and he was kind enough to work with me on the location and what would work best . I also received the edited pictures in 2 days and had so many wonderful pictures to choose from.

    Decided it was time for family pictures and due to Covid19 a lot of studios are closed. I seen Gasparian Photography reviews and decided to give him a try. He traveled to my home and took some beautiful family pictures of my family and I. Definitely will book again for my next event.
