The best thing about being a wedding photographer in Brighton is the amazing weddings it’s attracts from all over the world. This year I’ve shot for three American couples, two couples from France and then Michael and Gordon, who live in Germany working in theatre. I knew from the first time I spoke to Michael on the phone that we were going to have such a laugh. I’ll be blogging their wedding soon but in the meantime here’s what they had to say. Thanks so much Michael & Gordon, I think you’re both pretty ace too and it was an honour to be part of your amazing day (and possibly the most emotional ceremony I’ve ever photographed!) <3 See some images from their wedding here.
“Emma is quite simply the absolute best! Just the way she walked up to the hotel before we even met chilled us right out! (if only she could see that we were waiting, faces pressed against our sea facing window hoping she would be on time, which of course she was).
The brief was to be there but not seen, we didn’t want any staged or orchestrated pics, she assured us this was not her style or approach anyway and we were left feeling totally confident about her shooting our day. Even the intimate moments like the ceremony or when we gave both our mothers their gifts from us, we didn’t even know she was there and yet she managed to produce some of our favourite shots. Emma did however insist we were to take some couple shots as we would regret it later on in life and we have to agree we are so grateful she insisted, we met early in the morning and took a walk around brighton, again – we wanted to do this before the day got going as the last thing we wanted was to leave our Guests hanging around in the middle of the day while we went off to take pics!
Emma’s approach, her manner, her friendliness, it was just fantastic. We forgot we were being photographed after a few mins, it felt more like we were hanging out with a mate! It was so nice just to chat and learn something about her, and take some pics just for the fun of it. I don’t know if this is her ploy in order to relax her clients but something tells us she is just a diamond girl with a huge talent and vision, one we are so happy to be a part of.
We really will treasure her photos forever.
Thanks Emma! x”
