Hello!  This is me.

I’m Emily, fun, un-posed documentary wedding and Lifestyle photographer, based in Durham, in the beautiful North East of England, but adventuring all over.  I’m a mum of two, wife of one, with a big smile. 

Keeping my finger on the pulse since 1979…


I’m slightly obsessed with shoes, rock n’ roll and cosy pyjamas, but not all at the same time.


Most days you’ll find me running about in the fresh air with my two small children (trying to wear them out!), cooking weird and wonderful recipes from old cook books or getting cosy on the sofa with my husband to watch old movies.

I’m an image maker, mum, vintage camera enthusiast and occasional open-water swimmer.

When I’m not busy snapping away taking photos, you can catch me signing up for some daft physical challenge, mostly involving swimming in a wetsuit in a lake!  As a family, you can usually find us outdoors, either getting lost and muddy in a forest somewhere or playing on a beach in Northumberland.


Here are five more things you might not know about me…


  • I am a professionally trained award winning photojournalist with over 12 years experience in Editorial Press photography, having worked for regional and national newspapers and magazines since 2002.  Would I go back to Press photography?  NO! Photographing weddings and Lifestyles is WAY more fun!! You can check out instagram if you would like to see some examples of my editorial work
  • I met my husband at school
  • I have three sisters
  • I love Glamping
  • New York is my favourite city (I’ve visited so far…)


My Wedding Photography Bucket List:

I’m always on the lookout for quirky and interesting things.  My photography bucket list is basically really cool places, themes and activities I really REALLY want to be able to photograph.  I can offer a discount to any couples wanting a wedding a little bit out of the ordinary!


  • A hip festival themed wedding
  • A wedding in a forest
  • A wedding on a beach, in the UK or abroad I don’t mind!
  • A wedding on or in a lake (I’ll bring my wetsuit)
  • A wedding with a pet in attendance (horse, goat, pig, dog, rabbit)
  • A wedding in Iceland
  • A wedding in Norway (guests in Traditional dress, yes please!)
  • A wedding amongst a ruined building of any kind
  • A 1950’s rock n’ roll wedding
  • A Ford Thunderbird for a wedding car
  • A Las Vegas wedding, come to think of it, anywhere in America


I love to work in a natural documentary style, I'm not into making you pose! I really love to capture whatever is going on around me in my unique style.  If you want to know more about what I can offer, you may want to start with looking at my Portfolio or checking out a detailed description of How I Work or even reading some of the fantastic testimonials or Raves I have received.  If you still want to know more please check out my blog.  I'm always up for meeting up for a coffee or even a glass of wine, if you would like to chat some more don't hesitate to Contact Me.
