Do you pose us?
Yes but only subtle! While 90% of a wedding day for a photographer is candid and natural. Certain elements such as the group shots and couple photos need a gentle guiding hand. and it all depends on the couple and guests themselves. some weddings are guided more than others based on what you need and like. We have a consult call to run through preferences.
What is the booking process?
There is a £200 booking fee and e-contract to complete. Once this is done you are booked into the diary. We then have a call approx 1-2 months before the wedding to run through all preferences and schedules.
Do you help us with our timings?
Yes! On our call we will go through all of the details of the day. So I know where i need to be to avoid missing anything. I also act as a bit of a go to planer! Helping to advise on timings if I think things might be tight and too stressful. As a photographer we see so so many weddings, so often know what works and what does not!
Emma was one of the best suppliers we had at our wedding and I am SO glad that we went with her. She was unavailable for our original date but when it was postponed due to Covid we managed to book her in. She was excellent in the run-up, and on the day made everyone feel so at ease. The shots she managed to get were INCREDIBLE and five months later I still regularly look through the gallery. I cannot recommend her enough, you will not regret hiring her!!!
Emma was the most amazing photographer for our wedding! She was so responsive leading up to the day and completely understood exactly what we wanted and didn't want. The photos are more beautiful than we could imagine! My husband and I are both usually not very comfortable in front of the camera, but Emma helped make those moments in the day so much fun, where my husband and I could just celebrate - they ended up being some of my favourite moments. We had a couple shoot ahead of the wedding too and it was so great for helping to get us more comfortable in front of a camera and was a chance to work with Emma before the big day. Everyone who's seen our photos has since raved about them - including saying they are the BEST wedding photos they've seen (that's to Emma's credit, not us). Also, we never noticed her throughout the day (which was something we were worried about) - she was so discrete that there were many photos we saw and realised she must've been nearby when taken, and we don't remember seeing her. Cannot recommend highly enough!
I cannot recommend Emma enough to all brides and grooms to be. The work she does is pure magic, she is so intuitive, creative and can put you at ease in an instance. I promise you will have fun when Emma takes your photos! I had some ideas about how I wanted our wedding photos to look, I told Emma to be as creative as she wanted. She took us into the river Thames for our engagement shoot and lay us in a poppy field on our wedding day. Everyone is obsessed with our photos and if you book her they will be obsessed with yours too. Thank you Emma for everything, you made the planning process so easy and I will be forever grateful that you rearranged your schedule so you could fit us in when we had to postpone. You are the Queen of photography and I wish I could take you everywhere with me.
Emma-Jane was fantastic - from our initial contact, all the way through to the editing of our wedding photos. Her style and composition were what both my now-husband and I loved about her pictures, and we couldn't have picked a better person to capture our day. I will openly admit that I am dreadful in front of the camera - however Emma's calming, friendly style helped me to relax on our engagement shoot. By the time that we had got to our big day, I didn't even notice that she was there, which gave us the most beautifully relaxed photos. My husband was overjoyed, as I never let him take our pictures..! Emma-Jane was professional, courteous, and really took into account our personalities when shooting. We would recommend her to anyone planning a wedding or celebration, and feel lucky to have had her capture ours.
We absolutely loved the photos that Emma did for us. They captured our day perfectly and were more than what we could of hoped for. We have had so many compliments for our photos. In the run up and on the day, Emma was professional, helpful and increibly calm even when timings started to get a bit tight! My partner was worried about feeling uncomfortable about having his photo taken, but Emma made us feel completely at ease and we had so much fun. I would 100% recommend Emma to anyone looking for a wedding photographer who will make you feel and look great. They're images that we'll treasure for ever.
