About Picture Purple Photography

I’m Emily, a former Forensic Photographer; I swapped my white suit for weddings, and now specialise in photographing couples getting married across Surrey and the neighbourghing counties.

Don’t let my forensic background put you off - I’m very good at getting on with the living!

I’m relaxed, friendly and down to earth, with a very good sense of humour and I love meeting couples planning their wedding.

I always take time to get to know you both before your big day so I understand whats important to you when it comes to your photos. That way I can deliver a bespoke photographic service tailored to your individual needs; capturing creative and natural images that are personal and meangingful, as well as beautiful; ensuring you get photographs you'll love looking back through for years to come.

If you like what you see and want to know more, please get in touch - I'd love to hear the plans you have for your big day!

  • "She made me feel relaxed"
    This testimonial was entered by Picture Purple Photography on 10 April 2019

    Emily was fantastic at our wedding. I am not keen on having my photo taken but she made me feel very relaxed. She came up with some fantastic ideas and we have some really great photos of our special day. We would highly recommend her to anyone. Jenny & Richard - Merrist Wood Golf Club

  • "Half the time we didn't even notice she was there!"
    This testimonial was entered by Picture Purple Photography on 10 April 2019

    We had no real idea of what sort of photographer we wanted for our special day and when a family member recommended Emily, we looked at her website and liked what we saw. We met up with Emily to discuss our thoughts and she was so helpful with ideas and really helped put my mind at ease. Meeting at the venue a week before the big day was great as it meant we could pick out our favourite places where we could have photos taken. The big day came and it rained all day but Emily still managed to capture the real mood of all our family and friends using various props such as bubbles and umbrellas. The photos didn't take long to come back to us and they were perfect! It was so lovely looking through the photos and reliving the day. Emily sometimes gave us some direction but without being bossy and half of the time never even noticed she was there! She is a brilliant photographer who we would thoroughly recommend. Gemma & Garret - Loseley Park

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the price of your service?

I have created 4 different packages with a simple & transparent pricing structure to make it a bit easier to choose what's right for your wedding. Ceremony only £295. Ceremony to Wedding Breakfast - £995. Bridal Prep to Wedding Breakfast - £1150. Bridal Prep to first Dance - £1550. Please visit my website to see full package details. Prices correct from May 2019

What does the wedding package include?

All wedding packages include ; *An in person consultation where we can discuss the style of your wedding, what sort of photographs you're looking for and how we can best capture it for you. *A pre-wedding venue visit to familiarise ourselves with your venue(s). This will allow us to get a feel for the character of your venue and style of wedding; bounce ideas off each other; suggest ideas of where will lend itself to those 'wow' shots, and scope out areas we can use in the event of bad weather - we are in the UK after all! *2x photographers covering your day (except for the 'short day' package) *quality control, colour management and minor enhancements (such as cropping). *minor blemish removal is included (in case you get a dreaded big pimple in the middle of your forehead!) *Bespoke wooden photobox with a personalised USB stick containing all high-resolution digital images. (Other products are available at an additional cost).

How far in advance should I contact you?

Whenever you're ready! Some people book a year in advance, some people call up last minute. I don't 'pencil' people in, so if I'm free, I'm free and you can book me. It's easy to predict when the busy periods will be, but it's harder to predict when I'll get booked up for those periods.

Do you cover more than one wedding a day?

Gosh no! Who even does that??

Are you able to travel?

I’m based in Guildford and cover most areas in Surrey and the South East. If you’re wedding is particularly far away, then there may be an additional travel cost, but this will all be discussed up front with you and there will be no hidden fees.

What style of photos do you take?

I blend reportage and documentary style photography with elements of direction to achieve a stunning mix of natural, creative and 'wall worthy' images. I capture everything from hand made details to the moments of emotion that reflect the love of your wedding - all without being intrusive or imposing.

Do you use a specific technique or innovative approach?

Each wedding is unique and personal - so I always spend time listening and getting to know you beforehand to learn what's important to you both. Maybe you’re a ‘Selfie Queen’ looking for something adventurous and bold; or perhaps you’re a little more camera shy (like me) and want something more subtle from your photography. Whatever your priority is, I promise to deliver a bespoke service tailored to you - and photos that you’ll love!

What kind of equipment do you use?

I’m a Canon girl! I use a 5DMK3 and a variety of lenses and flashes.

What''s the delivery time for photographic report?

I always send you a few previews straight away that you can use on social media. Your full set of wedding photos will be delivered within 4 weeks of your wedding day - but often before.

Do you send all the photos taken?

You will receive all useable images - so any misfires or test shots won’t be included - but everything else will given to you.

Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?

I work with a photographer colleague

In case of unforeseen circumstances, do you have a replacement photographer?

Yes - I have a bank of photographer colleagues and friends that I know and trust to cover your wedding should something unforeseen happen to me. They have photographed my own wedding, and my other family members weddings; that’s how much I trust them!

Do you charge per hour or per event?

Per event. Packages are clearly listed on my website, but please contact me should you have any questions.

If needed, would you be able to work extra hours?

The packages I offer cover most scenarios required, however should you need something extra, this could be arranged on an individual basis.

What are the forms of payment?

Cash, cheque and bank transfer

What if it rains?

You can plan your wedding to the tiniest of details, but you can’t affect the weather, and even the Great British Summer can be wet and rainy! We will always have a contingency plan for bad weather, which we will discuss with you when we visit your venue(s). You don’t need bright sun and blue skies to get great photographs of your wedding. Some of our favourite shots come from weddings where it’s rained all day - and who doesn’t love a moody looking sky or a rainbow! Part of our job is to be flexible, read the day, stay a step ahead of everything so we don’t miss anything, and most of all seize the moment, so we’ll encourage you to pop outside with us during any dry spells with our bridal brollies. We’ll help you gather up and arrange your dress so it doesn’t get ruined - but if you’re up for jumping in puddles with wellies on, we’re up for photographing it for you!
