get to know the team & our space

San Francisco Photography Studio

welcome to our studio.

We have lived in the neighborhood for over 12 years, together for 15 years, and married for 10.

Emily has had the love for photography ever since she was little, and has been a professional photographer at Emily Jenks Photography for 5 years, serving hundreds of families and couples, focusing on smaller weddings and elopements, along with newborn, maternity and family photos. She loves to document every stage of life!

Oh hello! We are Tony and Emily Jenks - Co-Owners of Sunrise & Sunset Studios! 

Tony has a background in international affairs and the nonprofit sector, after working at the British Consulate General in San Francisco for 5 years and the Japanese Community Youth Council in San Francisco’s Japantown for over 5 years.

Tony is very passionate about his family and helping support the family business that Emily has successfully created and built. Tony has officiated over 150 weddings for Emily Jenks photography since 2020, loves nature and photography (especially Emily’s), and helped found and launch Sunrise & Sunset Studios.

These elements combined led Tony to join the Emily Jenks Photography team full-time as Director of Operations, where he will also help manage Sunrise & Sunset Studios. 

Our curated, natural-light studio space is perfect for families, couples, newborn, milestone, product, branding, and social media content photo and video shoots! It’s also perfect for small, intimate meetups.
