Emily 1 - Home


Hi I’m Emily. I’m a North East wedding photographer from Newcastle, covering Durham, Northumberland, North Yorkshire, the North East and all over the UK.  My wedding photography style is natural, fun and relaxed.  I’ll capture real moments as they happen in my own creative style.  Visual storytelling full of candid moments.  Perfect for anyone who shudders at the thought of awkward posing!  

I have over 15 years experience working as a full-time professional photojournalist, and now I’m loving life photographing weddings all over the North East and beyond.

See how it all works over on my Story page.  Take a look through my Portfolio and you’ll notice I tend to focus on candid, natural moments and real emotions.  I’d love to hear from you, please check out my work or get in touch to see if I’m free for your date.

 "We didn't even realise Emily was in the room! When we got the photo's I couldn't believe how she had got them because I just wasn't aware of her working, which is what we both wanted." - Garry & Sue

Genuine Storytelling

I work unobtrusively to capture all the big moments as well as the little moments that you'll likely not see, to tell the whole story of your day.  Mum wiping away a tear, belly-laughs from friends or a cheeky flower girl stealing the icing from the cake.  I LOVE capturing real moments and real emotions.  Catch me grinning away behind my camera for the entire day because I absolutely LOVE weddings!


Raw Emotions

I thrive on capturing the raw emotions of your wedding day.  These will be your most favourite photographs and the moments you'll remember!    I will be there to photograph what happens, so don't be afraid to wear your hearts on your sleeves!

Real Moments

I know that a wedding day is not just about the bride and groom.  It's about that hug from Grandad, the tight squeeze on the hand from Granny, Aunty's legendary fudge cake coming round as canapés and your Best Man fumbling with the ring before he drops it.  I believe that there are so many little things that happen during your wedding day, that when you put them all together, they tell one big story of your day.

Fun and Natural

This is YOUR day, and you've been planning it for ages.  I totally get that this is your once-in-a-lifetime kind of day when all your family and friends are together in the same place!  I want you to spend your day having fun with your family and friends.  I hear you when you say you want natural photos but you don't want the photographer taking over!  We can make time for a few casual portraits of the two of you and a few group shots, and I always keep these relaxed and cheese-free.

Relaxing and stress-free

I want to help make your wedding day as stress-free as possible.  This is your big day and I will never bark orders, rush you or take over.  You wont be dragged away from your guests for hours and forced into cheesy poses either!  I strive to make sure your experience with me is super-chilled and fun so I can capture you at your most laid-back and happiest.
