- Whether your wedding is a three day extravaganza, or a small service at a local registry office, Emerson Photography is a natural choice for your wedding photography. Combining candid, documentary wedding photography with some fabulous, dramatic wedding portraiture gives my clients the very best of all worlds. Prices start at just £680 for four hours coverage or £1080 for up to ten hours. All your finished images are made available for easy download at full size and high resolution from your own personal gallery which is also the perfect way to share the photographs with your guests. You can print, copy and share these as often as you like. Wedding albums are available from £300. Emerson Photography has been hard at work since 2006. Mixing a true documentary style with a little heart-felt wedding day portraiture is what I do best. If you're not so keen on standing in rows all day, grinning for the camera, you're in the right place. If you'd prefer your friends and family to get every second of enjoyment out of your day, rather than standing around in awkward poses for hours, I can help. Although I'm currently based in Aberdeen, I've recently shot weddings in Tuscany, London and Edinburgh amongst many other great locations.

What is your most memorable wedding?
Tough one - there have been so many! Other than my own, I suppose it was the biker wedding I photographed some years back. A strange mix of tradition and motorbikes. Hardly a suit to be seen - this was all about leather and denim in a very beautiful country house venue. Quite surreal and just so much fun!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Candid, friendly, almost invisible, modern, timeless.
What about your business are you most proud of?
Its longevity. I must be doing something right to have been in business since 2006 :-)
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Have a well thought out structure for your day. Weddings are so much more enjoyable without any long gaps between events. Maybe go for a later ceremony to avoid that early afternoon slump.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I've seen everything from a troupe of 10 year old dancers performing Swan Lake, to the groom abandoning everyone to play with his band at his own wedding! The most touching gestures are the small ones though, I think. Like the groom who tied a love letter to the couple's dog collar and let his bride to be find it on the morning of the wedding. Such tears!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Although I'm pretty 'hands-off' on the day, I do like to get to know my clients. It's helpful to have an idea of what makes them tick, so ideally, I'll meet them at least once before the day. After the wedding, it takes up to a month to deliver the finished photographs (I'm meticulous but it's worth the wait!).
What is the #1 photo that you think every couple should take?
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
At the end of a particularly riotous wedding, the groom appeared in the bride's dress, snogged the best man and demanded a photo for prosterity... And no, you can't see the photo...
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Wellies. Porridge for breakfast.
Describe how you got into photography.
My grandad was a wedding photographer so I grew up constantly exposed to all things photographic (my mum is a keen amateur too). Like so many, I received my first proper film SLR camera at about age 10 and carried the interest throughout my teens and 20s. It wasn't until I was nearly 30 that I decided to ruin a perfectly good hobby by returning to university to take an arty photography degree.
