Full Description
When we got married, we knew we wanted to have an amazing day celebrating with the people most dearest to us. No stressing about the details, and definitely no standing around for ages in awkward cheesy poses. We wanted some belting pictures of our day, without the photographer taking over. We wanted our day to be unique and reflect us as a couple, with just a nod to the odd tradition thrown in (mainly to keep the mum's happy!) If this sounds like you, then we should talk...

Emily, how beautifully you have told our story!
Emily, how beautifully you have told our story! Ten years to the date in the same spot we celebrated our marriage conversion with our very own little girl. We wanted to thank you personally for your kindness, professionalism and talent on the day. Unlike our original big white wedding we chose to celebrate privately this time - you were our only guest. We had not met you previously but had chosen you via a recommendation from another photographer. You arrived as our ‘spur of the moment’ photographer and left as our friend. All within the space of a couple of hours! How lucky we were to have chosen you, thank you for agreeing to photograph our special day. I could not recommend you and your photography talents enough! What a lovely, genuine talented person you are. On the day you were so generous with your time, kindness and patience. Our ceremony was so very small but you took the time to detail all of our special moments together. We had asked you to capture our little family on the day and we have treasured the memories in the photographs that you have taken. We still smile at all of the belly laughs that you captured - still not sure what we were laughing at! What beautiful photographs of our little girl too! So lovely to see the happiness in our family reflected back through your lens.

Emily is awesome.
"Emily is awesome. Her documentary style was exactly what we were looking for. Everyone at our wedding has commented on how great she was and have loved looking back over the photos. I can’t recommend her highly enough!" - Iain and Libby

I can not recommend her more
"From start to finish Emily has been fantastic to work with, she listened to exactly what we wanted from our wedding photographer and delivered far more. The pictures are beautiful, and capture the whole of our day so wonderfully. Having Emily at your wedding is like having an extra pair of (sober!) eyes, she seemed to be everywhere the action was - risking life and limb to get some ceilidh action shots! We wanted to spend time with our guests, not hours posing away from them, and we were able to do this and get some beautiful couple shots. I can not recommend her more." - Hannah and Aidan
