Full Description
It’s my job and my passion to capture genuine moments exactly as you remember them, so you have a complete record of all the special, funny, emotional and crazy moments that made up your wedding day. It’s important to me that the photographs I take are honest, so you won’t find my work to be over-stylised. I want your images to last a lifetime and not become dated and I believe this is done by producing beautifully lit, and sympathetically edited images. Lots of photographers advertise themselves as being discreet, I prefer appropriate. During your ceremony I will definitely be as unobtrusive as possible but when the party starts you’ll find me in the middle of the dance floor grabbing those action shots. You’ve got to be in it to win it! Above all, I promise to listen to you and do things your way. I’m not big on drama, I like things to be relaxed and fun. The best way to achieve this is to do everything I can to make sure that your big day is running exactly the way you want it to. I want every smile, in every photo, to come from the heart. "Emma exceeded all our expectations - she knew exactly what we were aiming for instinctively, and got it just right. I had total confidence in her from the word go, and would not hesitate in recommending her. I was thrilled with how she executed our vision. Talented and professional." So if you're looking for a photographer or stationery designer who gets you and will adapt to your requirements, look no further. Doodah's the answer!

FAQ
(10)

What is your most memorable wedding?

Cheesy answer, but it has to be my own. After designing and making all my own wedding stationery and flowers and then delaying my honeymoon to photograph someone elses wedding I knew it was time to take a leap and start my own business. It was the beginning of so many adventures!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Personal, relaxed, intuative, flexible, diverse

What about your business are you most proud of?

I'm proud of the relationships I build with my clients and the trust they put in me to deliver.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Use small businesses where you know you'll always be dealing with the same person. If you build a relationship with your supplier they will go the extra mile to make sure everything is perfect for you.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

The couple's one year old son in a blue three piece suit and brown brogues which perfectly matched his dad's. It made a great picture!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Getting to know you is really important. A face-to-face chat in the first instance will help me to interpret your style and your feelings about being photographed. If you want to go ahead and book then I'll send you a plain-english contract and ask for a 25% deposit. The balance is due 4 weeks befoer the big day. I'll contact you close to your wedding date to finalise all your plans.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

When you look back at your wedding album, no matter how much you love your venue or your dress or your flowers, the fondest memories will be of the people. The best image has got to be of just the two of you, looking relaxed, happy and in love, straight after the ceremony.

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

I love taking the behind the scenes candid shots of the bride getting ready. Knowing that the groom will get to have a sneek peek into what he missed before his bride walked down the aisle. A really original photo was the bride in her enormous lycra pants which not even the groom knew were hiding under her stunning dress!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

There's always a way around the rain. An overcast sky can make for some really dramatic shots and it rarely rains all day long. I recommend getting out there, you'll only do it once! But if you'd rather stay in the dry, remember it's the people that make the memories, not the surroundings. Clever lighting can still make for some great images.

Describe how you got into photography.

Photography was a module of my fine art degree. I learnt to take pictures on film and develop them in the dark room at my college. I loved the process of making photos but mostly I loved being able to capture a moment in time and fleeting expressions on peoples faces which caught them at their best.
