Full Description
Hello! My name is Emma and I am a Sussex wedding photographer who lives by the sea in Brighton. I love to travel and happily cover weddings throughout Sussex to London and beyond. I frequently hear from couples how fast their wedding day goes by and the best advice I can give is to make sure you take time to step back and enjoy each moment. My goal is to capture these moments in an authentic, creative and unobtrusive way. My style is relaxed and informal, I wont boss anyone around – unless you ask me to! I consider photography to be a form of storytelling and I fell in love with it as soon as I picked up a camera. When I’m not photographing weddings I enjoy other types of stories, going to the theatre, watching films and reading books. I genuinely love getting to know each couple that I work with, every wedding is different. Being able to provide you with a set of images that tell the unique story of your day is something I strive to create and find hugely rewarding. So whether you’re having a rural wedding, a beach blessing, or a big party in the city, I would love to hear from you. Emma x

"She made us feel as if we were her only clients"
Emma did such a wonderful job with our wedding photos, we highly recommend her to anyone! Even with short notice, she made us feel as if we were her only clients. This, being our first wedding, she answered all our questions and helped us plan the photos we wanted for the wedding and suggested ones we hadn't thought of (we completely forgot about photos of just us on the day of). All of the photos came out beautifully. They really captured the spirit of our wedding, friends, and family. Emma was very professional and was able to provide us with photos from a variety of perspectives. She had the photos back to us very quickly in an easy to use and share website as well as a gorgeous USB drive. She was very personable with us and our guests. Everyone at the wedding loved her and the photos.

"We couldn’t be happier with them!"
“Hi Emma, we just wanted to email to say we love the wedding photos. Honestly they are amazing, we couldn’t be happier with them. We spent about 2-3 hours last night looking through them all in detail and its great to have such lovely photography to look back on, you definitely did the day justice and have very happy customers! I love the party ones also, as you captured little moments we’d missed or forgotten about! I like how we all get more progressively drunk with every slide as well! Amazing work, we are very happy – thanks again and we’ll be recommending you to everyone we know”

"Emma was absolutely fantastic at our wedding"
Emma was absolutely fantastic at our wedding. She worked so hard and managed to get everyone into the group shots very seamlessly. She carried two cameras with her which meant we got a range of amazing photos. She was friendly, professional and reliable all the way through the process. I chose Emma because I loved the natural style her photos portray and our photos definitely did not disappoint. She really captured our day beautifully and all the nature around us, which was very important to us. Many thanks Emma we would highly recommend you to anyone!!! Love Jo and Morgan Barry

"We can’t recommend Emma enough"
We can’t recommend Emma enough. Her calm demeanour and professionalism was amazing and so reassuring. With both of us both being unsure as what to expect with the prospect of having a camera pretty much on us all day Emma made us feel so relaxed and it all felt very natural. We absolutely love our resulting photographs, they captured our wonderful day perfectly and are the exact style we were hoping for. Thank you so much for being part of our wedding day for making it extra extra special and for your lovely words of advice and guidance to two very nervous grooms. Edd & Neil xx

"She managed to seemingly be everywhere at once!"
Emma was our wedding photographer in August 2017 and did a fantastic job, we would recommend her to everyone! She has a good eye, a lovely natural style and captured our day beautifully. We are delighted with our photos and the slideshow she put together for us so quickly after the wedding. She was very efficient and organised throughout the whole process. Emma is also a genuinely lovely person and got on well with all our guests - many of whom have commented on how impressed they were with her unobtrusive style. We barely noticed her at times but somehow she managed to seemingly be everywhere at once and took some amazing photos! Thanks again Emma, love Simon and Helen

"You have 110% definitely done our day justice"
"So we settled down with a cuppa to look through the photos like you suggested and they are absolutely amazing. You have done such a fab job capturing every aspect of our perfect day. I cannot wait to show our families they are going to love the pics. We both wanted to say a massive thank you to you for be part of our special day and capturing every shot as perfectly as we had imagined and for also including so many different shots we really appreciate the amount of extra work you have put in just for us. It has been great getting to know and you have 110% definitely done our day justice. It would be lovely to stay in touch with you and you never know we may even require your services again once our family is complete"
