What does EMKAY STUDIOS stand for many people ask, EM = (M)Michael and KAY = (K)Keith. We are not only business partners but more importantly we have been best friends for the past 17 years and counting.
Having photographed various events and managing Photo Booths over the past years, we found that there was an abundance of Photo Booth businesses in the Lower Mainland but only a few event services that offered professional quality photos and prints. Our experience of capturing portraits while working with studio equipment, professional cameras and software led us to create this business that we found to be lacking in the event service industry. Yes we do offer the traditional Photo Booth, but also offer a refreshing alternative to the automated Photo Booth by providing an upscale service using Studio Lighting and Cameras that lead each and every photo taken to be professionally edited and printed for guests to take home as a keepsake and for clients to cherish from the special day they spent countless hours planning.
Get To Know Us
Having worked in the accounting industry for 10+ years, I never imagined I would create a business with my best friend! It started with my dear friend (JP) who introduced me to the photo booth industry many years ago. Working the odd job with him sparked my passion and interest to want to do more with a camera. Knowing that Keith also had a passion for photography, we decided to combine our skill sets and create a new niche. Yes, we offer photo booth services but our specialty is capturing the timeless moments of guests and have them take home professional quality keepsakes. I also wouldn’t have been able to pursue my dreams without the support of my wife – love you!
Who would have known that receiving my first ever camera (Nikon D7000 to be exact) from my wife as a birthday present 5 years ago that it would one day turn into a business working with my best friend. Pofu Photography is a photography service I have been providing for the past few years and has led me to want to further my skills and experience by creating Emkay Studios with my partner Mike. Who wouldn't want to own a business while spending time with their best friend??
