  • My husband and I had the most amazing wedding and are excited because we have every moment captured thanks to Becky and Josh! You can really see Becky's passion for photography through her work and everyone who has seen our pictures has loved them. She made us look like movie stars! Becky is very knowledgable about weddings and knows that every little detail is important. She even fixed a problem with my dress I didn't know I had! The only thing I would have done differently is to have had them stay longer!

  • Photographer was the first one and also the one we reviewed the most while selecting the vendors for our wedding, since photo is the only image that last after the day. Becky is definitely reliable, well-experienced and professional to work with that left no worries for us on the details, logistics, communications, leadtime as well as deliverables with high quality. Wedding planning became better with her suggestions. Beyond professionalism, Becky has a unique approach to the photos she takes that my husband and I feel “click” with, and couldn’t stop thinking how the photos would look like if we’re the one in them. When we received our photos, no matter for e-session or wedding, not only they’re stunning, unique, appealing, but personal and touching. We can feel the stories and the emotions in our photos, and this is exactly what we’re looking for. We love our photos so much that we plan to make some of them into fine art prints and hang on walls. Becky and AOE is d... Read more

  • They say if you're lucky, you only get married once, and if that is the case, you also only get once to capture that day in photos. I cannot tell you enough how happy my husband and I are that we decided to go with Becky Burgin and the Art of Emotion for our wedding day. From the first email, Becky was quick to respond, helpful, friendly, personable and professional. At our first meeting, she brought up so many points that I would've never thought of on my own and even made a timeline for how our wedding should go so she and Josh could get the best pictures possible. I knew right then and there that she was the only photographer I wanted for my big day. On the day of, she was so professional, kind, and even helped out with my pesky train that just wouldn't seem to stay up! Haha! Her work is beyond amazing! Every picture looks like something out of a bridal magazine. She truly does showcase the life/emotions of that day in all of her photos. My husband and I had decided not to get a v... Read more

  • My husband and I were thrilled with Becky and the Art of Emotion. Our pictures are unique, beautiful, and just what we were looking for. Also, Becky was so organized, punctual, and detail oriented. When planning a wedding it's invaluable to have a vendor that takes so much on and is so reliable. Becky is on task and executes her job perfectly. Also, the boys really enjoyed working with Josh before the wedding. I was lucky and liked all my vendors, but the one area where Becky really stood out was the follow-up. After the wedding I haven't had any contact with anyone else we hired, but Becky checks in regularly to see what we need and make sure we are still happy with our product! Thanks!

  • The Art of Emotion is a joy to work with. From the moment we met Becky we knew we wanted to work with her. She has a warm personality and is helpful in ways that go far beyond what one might expect. She helped plan our time line and even provided recommendations for some last minute wedding gown alterations. Becky also always replied very quickly to all of our emails and had very positive suggestions and ideas that helped us plan the entire day. She's not only talented, but she clearly loves being part of the wedding process. She was undoubtedly our most helpful vendor from start to finish. We loved working with Becky on the wedding day and she put us at ease the entire time. We never felt rushed or awkward and we absolutely love how our pictures turned out. We cannot stop looking at them and we have had the prints for over a month! So, if you are looking for the absolute best wedding photographer in Northern California, then look no further! The Art of Emotion is the photogra... Read more

  • With so many great photographers in the bay area, choosing one was very difficult. We interviewed many others before meeting Becky and although they were nice and professional when we met Becky, we both know that she was the one. During our first meeting it was apparent that she was passionate about wedding photography and excited about potentially being a part of our day. On the wedding day, she and her son Josh showed up on time and thoroughly prepared. She even noticed that my wedding dress was too long in the front and helped prepare a quick fix! Between their skill and relaxed demeanor our wedding day was a great success! After receiving our photos both my husband and I were so pleased to view all the brilliant work from that day. The emotion and love has been captured forever. Thank you Becky and Josh!

  • If I could give Becky and Art of Emotion more than five stars in all categories I would. She went so far above and beyond the call of duty in being our wedding photographer, and beyond that is a powerful creative person in her own right. She has huge attention to detail, and her amount of experience in photographing weddings meant that she was a tremendous help during our event. I really can't imagine having done it without her and her daughter, Erika. If you are planning a wedding anywhere near the bay area I don't think you should even consider anyone else. Her pictures were phenomenal and the service she provided was so much more than that. I've met many photographers over the years for different events -- my wedding, friends and families' weddings, professional events, portraits -- and Becky was by far the best.

  • We are so thrilled that the Art Of Emotion could be a part of our most special day! We just LOVE Becky and Josh Burgin! They added such a neat element to our wedding day. Becky truly puts her heart and soul into her art and because of that, she is a master of her craft! She was by my side the entire day, even holding my lipstick for me! We were so impressed with Becky's talent and her eye for spectacular imagery that we flew her and Josh to Las Vegas to be our wedding photographers. Since we are in the industry ourselves (also being wedding photographers), we know talent when we see it! When we were planning our wedding, we were looking for someone who would not only capture our emotion and the special moments that happen on a day like that but also for someone who would capture them in a very artistic way. We are so glad that we chose Becky and Josh Burgin with the Art Of Emotion. They truly are gifted, talented photographers! And they are absolutely WONDERFUL to work with! Thank y... Read more

  • What you can you say about a photographer who is assigned with the enormous task to capturing one's special moment in a way that will tell their story for decades past it! Becky and Josh did this task with such grace and passion that one would think that they were part of our family and knew how to portray us through their camera lens. They invited us to their home, we shot in their backyard for our engagement and various other locations during the wedding. They worked through all the hurdles of rushing from once location to another, setting up before everyone else and taking charge of the situation when guidance was needed. I know we have some beautiful image that will last us forever but our biggest gain was knowing and becoming friends with some very humble people whom we will refer to as friends for life! Thanks again for everything Becky and Josh! our best, soniya & hamid

  • We chose Becky because she has a unique eye for pictures that capture the heart-flutter moments and emotions as well as all of the day's details. She produces gush-worthy, beautiful pictures. Yet Becky herself is the real asset that distinguishes her from her peers. Her kindness, enthusiasm, and care were genuine, and shooting with her was relatively easy and fun for two camera-shy people! I can't imagine the wedding day without her grace and smile, and we both look forward to future projects with Becky.

  • Lets face it. The dress will be worn and packed up. The food, and cake will get eaten. The music will die down, as will the candles. And as though it felt like this night would never end, it will finally be true what you've heard other brides say. "Enjoy it! Cause before you know it, it's over." We can never really hold on to or keep these things. Yet, with the gift of a great photographer we are able to revisit all the joy, the details, friends and family of one special day. And if you are lucky enough to have The Art of Emotion photographing your wedding day, then you are able to revisit so much more. The romance, the anticipation, the love, the moments that happened when you only wish a camera was around. The Art of Emotion catches it all! I took great care looking for a photographer, I felt it was THE most important element of our wedding day. I searched countless websites, got recommendations that I sometimes felt obligated to use, but they just weren't what I was lo... Read more

  • Becky and Josh were amazing. All the photos came out just the way we wanted. They listened to what I wanted with my photos. They made the day of the wedding not as stressfull with all the craziness going on. She even saved my dress from a boutineer mishap...thank you Becky.
