The best decision we made!

Emily was so professional - we didn't notice her once during the ceremony or reception, but somehow she managed to get some incredible, intimate shots of the whole event. The photographs were of such high quality, and really captured the essence of the day. I would highly recommend her to anyone!

Amazing wedding photographer!

You need Emily as your photographer for your wedding.
Nothing was too much, so fitted right in with the bridal party the morning of the wedding and with the groom party getting ready. She helped the men with their ties and had sound tips and tricks throughout the day. We love our photos, she put us at ease throughout the day and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone for photographs.
Thank you so much Emily 💖

Incredible photographer with a natural & relaxed approach!

I cannot recommend Emily enough, she really is an amazing photographer and our wedding photos have exceeded all of my expectations.

We wanted a more relaxed approach to our photos, and Emily's style fit this perfectly. She made us feel so comfortable throughout the day, and knows exactly what to suggest to capture the perfect photo without making poses look forced. We had such a good time getting our photos taken together.

All of the photos throughout the day are incredible, and Emily just blended in perfectly, I didn't even spot her capturing some very special moments.

Not only is Emily fantastic on the day, she was very helpful during the build up to the wedding as well, sharing helpful tips and suggestions that ensure you're fully prepared for your wedding day.

We really couldn't have been happier - Thank you Emily x

Amazing, exactly what we hoped for and more!

Emily was absolutely amazing throughout our whole wedding process, from very early planning stages to the end of the evening reception. She was always so accommodating, responsive and helpful with everything that we asked for, and she was so helpful on the run up with lots of tips & tricks to ensure the day ran smoothly. We are totally in love with our wedding photos and wouldn’t have picked anyone else to capture our day!

Perfect Wedding Photographer

Emily was the perfect wedding photographer! It’s such a big decision choosing who to trust to capture your big day but we definitely made the right one! Emily was so relaxed and fitted seamlessly into our very chilled out wedding day. We loved Emily’s candid style and we were absolutely blown away when we received the link to our gallery of photos - problem is, we just can’t decide which one’s to print as we love them all! The online platform for viewing and downloading photos is very professional and easy to use. Communication was great and we found Emily’s emails, which were full of great advice, very helpful with planning. We wouldn’t hesitate to highly recommend!
