"I wouldn't want the photos any other way and just couldn't imagine such  sweet, honest, light & deeply romantic photography for me and my husband" - Katrina, February 2022

"It was so wonderful that you were able to glide between moments, and you were so kind to allow us to feel like we were able to  have moments as a couple" - Maria and Matt, March 2022



Hello and welcome! My name is Emily and I am an award-winning, UK-based, luxury wedding, elopement, engagement, and portrait photographer.

My aim is to provide each and every client with timeless and breath-taking imagery that tells their personal story.


So whether you are throwing a luxury wedding in central London or eloping in the rugged, romantic hills of the Scottish Highlands, you can trust that I will unobtrusively capture your day to a fine art standard worthy of hanging in a gallery.

My Approach

After graduating with a Master's in Psychology, I decided to take my love of people and human interaction and channel that towards my passion for photography. Nothing makes me happier than taking your story and turning it into a deeply romantic, cinematic, and timeless collection of images that represents you.
