Becky, Erika, and Joshua Burgin are the photographers
behind The Art of Emotion. The three have been pooling their award-winning
talents and working as a team since 2000. Together, they've photographed
hundreds of weddings in the San Francisco area and beyond.
Becky Burgin is The Art of Emotion’s lead
photographer and creative visionary. She’s also the team’s
actionista, able to respond quickly to changing timelines and
solve logistical problems as they arise. Her passion is reflecting
the romance between two people in the unexpected moment.
Joshua Burgin is the team’s photojournalistic
photographer and videographer, known to literally sprint to position
himself in just the right place to capture award-winning moments.
And Erika Burgin is able to discern the emotional needs of people
around her—an invaluable photographic skill for visually
telling the “story” of day.
As a family of artists, Becky, Erika, and Joshua
love what they do, love working together and enjoy combining their
strengths and talents to bring joy in the form of shared memories
