Attention to detail was second to none
Emma was our photographer for our wedding on Saturday, what can we say, she was amazing! She made ourselves and all our guest feel completely at ease and was fantastic with all the children attending (she even put my sons shoes on and helped him with finishing touches when he decided it was the right time). Her attention to detail was second to none and she seamlessly mingled with our guests while ensuring all special moments were captured. She went above and beyond throughout the whole day, we couldn’t have asked for anyone better. We can not recommend highly enough for anyone looking for a photographer for those special occasions. We can’t wait to see the final photos, Thank you once again Emma Tom & Louise Osborne

Our wedding
Picking a photographer is a big responsibility as it's a main part of the wedding. We was so pleased we picked Emma, she is so friendly and really easy to get on with, also very good communication. We had a pre wedding shoot as part of the package. This is really good to discuss the day, what photos you want and to get used to have photos taken. On the wedding day Emma was taking pictures non stop and we didn't feel she was in the way or taking over, she was very helpful on the day. After the wedding when we got to see the photos online we was so happy with them and couldn't remember most of them being taken. We then got all the photos on a USB stick. Me and Bruce made the right decision having Emma as our photographer and would definitely recommend her.

Well what can I say Emma has done and absolutely fantastic job, all of the pictures and edits are amazing we could not be any happier, she was so relaxed and made us feel so natural when she was taking photos never at one point did you feel pressured or felt like the camera was put on you, she got on with all our friends and family and always took people's photos if they asked her to, at one point me and the wife was very overwhelmed so Emma took us to one side to have a break from it all which was really kind of her, she then took our photos in the sunset, also what we liked is that we had a trial shoot at our venue so on the day Emma new all the good spots and what photos to take, on the day she just floated about you wouldn't have even known she was there, the amount of natural photos she took really capture the beauty of the day we can not thank her enough for capturing our special day for us, we also really liked that you get a USB with every single photo taken. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is getting married she is absolutely amazing.

Nothing was too much trouble
Right from the very beginning Emma and Ross were so accommodating. We had an engagement shoot with them initially to meet Ross and get to know him and informally get our ideas for the wedding and more importantly get to know us and our young children, which really helped for the ‘big day’. Ross came and met us at the venues and ‘scouted’ for the best shot places etc. He was very well prepared. He also took detailed notes for our wedding day. On the day itself he was there early capturing all of the important pictures, but he was not too imposing and captured lots of great natural shots. The after service that Emma and Ross provide is also great! Nothing was too much trouble!!

Mallorca Wedding August 19
Emma came over to Mallorca recently to shoot our wedding and we are delighted with the pictures and overall experience. A big part of our choice of Emma was not only the standard of work but the communication from the outset, it was first class. One element of the service we would only experience on the day was would Emma make us feel at ease on such a big occasion for us...she absolutely did! The mix of humour and reassurance was ideal. A big seal of approval from us, keep up the good work Emma!

More than a photographer
Couldn't have wished for a more fantastic wedding photographer. On the build up to the wedding and on the day, Emma was so supportive and did an incredible job. She was a massive help beside getting people in the right places for photos. Would absolutely recommend her. She was amazing! Our photos are beautiful and thanks to Emma we have very special memories to look back on.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Vintage, Fun, Relaxed, Natural & Contemporary

What about your business are you most proud of?

Since starting the business I'm most proud of the relationships we've built up with many of the couples that we've photographed - many of whom I would now call friends. We always feel very lucky when couples choose us to be a part of one the most personal and special days of their lives. We spend time getting to know the bride and groom before the wedding to ensure they are relaxed on the day, and we get to see things that not even their family and closest friends do. Many of the relationships we develop don't end after the wedding day... we are often then asked to capture the weddings of their family and friends too. We genuinely get to know people and that means they are comfortable around us and let us get the best shots! We often become a 'photographer for life' and we get asked to photograph other events such as family parties, christenings or even newborn portraits. This makes us proud as we get to see the enjoyment people get from our work - not just on the day itself, but over time as they look back too.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

The first thing we would say is that not all wedding photographers are the same… have a look around and talk to people to find out what styles you like and what you expect from your wedding photography.  A wedding is a personal experience shared with friends and family, and the photos that record all of the moments and little details are just as personal.  We get to know every couple who let us be a part of their wedding and building a relationship is an important part of getting great photographs. If you get on with your photographer and trust them it allows for a far more relaxed and enjoyable wedding day… and a happy couple makes for better photographs.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

We meet up initially to discuss your wedding photography and for you to view albums and galleries of previous weddings we have photographed. You would then have an engagement shoot, this is a great chance to spend some time with you in a more casual environment, and get you used to being in front of the camera lens.  We then meet four weeks before the wedding day to go through the final schedule for the BIG day and in order to find out exactly what you want from us, there isn’t time to be wasted on the wedding day itself, so preparation time is well spent to ensure that we capture all the photographs you want.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

Every couple genuinely wants something different, so we make suggestions rather than tell people what photos they must have. But the main recommendation we would always make is for couple to take 5 minutes for themselves away from everyone straight after the ceremony. This is when it really sinks in that they are married and they can share a personal moment or two. I don't pose them, or get too close, but get one or two natural photos from a distance. That's one of the moments of the day most couples really cherish and without a photo to capture it would often get lost and forgotten amongst everything else going on during the day.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Rain isn't something to be scared of. Anyone involved with weddings regularly knows that the weather is the one thing you can't control, and can have a different impact depending upon the venue. Often rain gives couples the opportunity to get something a bit different or quirky, and we always ensure we have a number of beautiful umbrellas and flash lighting to get something creative. But the main advice I would give to a couple is to trust your photographer and be flexible. Being entirely honest it might mean that not every shot planned and wanted will be possible, but we make sure we get photos to tell the story of the day, but also the 'wow' shots that couples want to share with friends and family. Often it might mean whisking the couple away for 5 - 10 minutes at different times through the day to catch the odd break in rain, but the couple should just enjoy themselves and leave it to us to worry about how the weather will affect the photos.
