Behind the camera

Meet Emma

Originally from a large coastal town in the south of England, Ive been lucky enough to live in many amazing countries, including South Africa, America, France, and Canada. I definitely have always had the travel bug, and to this day I enjoy venturing to new places. I’m now living in the big little city of Auckland among the lush green colour palette of the subtropical and native plants that surround us. Once I’d seen the incredible landscapes of New Zealand, the decision to make my home here was pretty easy to make, and I’ve come a long way since arriving here 12 years ago with just a back pack and snowboard!

I’m constantly inspired by the beauty and variety of nature we’re so lucky to be surrounded by, and I try to capture these elements within each of my shoots and weddings. My imagery is relaxed and natural, as unposed as possible, combined with a laid-back approach to capture who you truly are as a couple or family. I realise that not everyone is a natural in front of the camera, and have lots of different ways to make your session as fun and easy as possible.

MY STYLE

SENTIMENTAL: Things can be immensely powerful... I love capturing the seemingly small details which in years to come will remind you of this exact time and place. Old family photos (dodgy home haircuts and rusty old family cars) are some of my most treasured possessions. I love being able to evoke that sense of nostalgic feeling in my couples and their families.

LIGHTHEARTED: I don't take myself too seriously and am prepared to be a bit of a goof to lighten the mood. I have an array of (awesome) dad jokes and a few other tricks up my sleeve to make even the most stoic groom laugh. I love the moments between moments, when the real you shines through. It's always the most beautiful when people are relaxed and can be themselves.

ROMANTIC: I'm a total sucker for romance, which is just one of the reasons I love my job so much!. There's nothing quite like the feeling of getting caught up in the moment. Your wedding day is made of of these moments, fleeting but amazing moments which you'll want to last forever. I make it my mission to capture them for you, so that you can look back on them and relive those moments forever.
