Hello!  This is me.

I’m Emily, a female Documentary-stlye Wedding and Portrait Photographer, based in Durham, in the beautiful North East of England, but adventuring all over. 

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 tv series like Spaced or Flight of the Conchords.

I’m an image maker, mum, vintage camera enthusiast and occasional open-water swimmer.  I love my converse trainers, going to see live music, any genre of music really, but I do love a bit of Maximo Park, Kasabian and Royal Blood.

When I’m not busy snapping away taking photos, you can catch me signing up for some daft physical challenge, mostly involving pulling on a wetsuit and jumping into a lake!  My family are the most important thing to me, and 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 portraits are WAY more fun!! I really, really enjoy getting involved in all the emotions of your wedding day, and I'll come away from each wedding with cheek-ache from grinning all day behind my camera! (or wiping away a small tear during speeches)!  I really do get invested in each day I document, and as each wedding day is unique, like you, you will receive a very personal set of images and memories from your special day.  You can follow me on instagram if you would like to see some examples of what I get up to.
  • I met my husband at school
  • I have three sisters
  • I love Glamping
  • New York is my favourite city (I’ve visited so far…)

 

I love to work in a natural documentary style, I'm not into making you do awkward poses! I really love to capture real emotions and real moments, real connections between you and your family and friends.  Just being yourselves is the winning formula!!

I'm really relaxed and I love to quietly blend in, capturing all the love, laughter, tears and joy of your day!  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.
