I'm Emma, a West Cork based wedding and elopement photographer.
I love to photograph weddings for loved up, off beat and fun loving couples that want relaxed, stylish and documentary style wedding photographs with no stress and no faff!
I have a background in press photography, so my style is a bit more relaxed and reportage than posed and formal. I've been a photographer since 2005.
I'm a visual story teller, I capture the candid moments that show your tribe being their wonderful, silly, shy, playful and raucous selves. Your people. This is what it is about.
I'm there for the real moments from your day - that look in your besties eye as she cheers you on, tears rolling down your dad's cheeks as he sees you for the first time in your dress, or that infectious belly laugh of your favourite uncle. My style is less about posing and more about playing!
I also do the formal family pics for the mantlepiece, but my speciality is blending into your group and documenting you and your people being yourselves.
Together, we'll create timeless, beautiful photographs that you will cherish for generations to come. This is the start of your legacy. The start of your families story. You need a photographer who will capture your people in an honest, warm & joyful way.
Having shot hundreds of weddings, you can trust you are in experienced and safe hands.

Thank you again so much x I'm looking forward to meeting you for a drink soon!

"Emma is an amazing photographer. Her bubbly, easy going, fun personality was exactly what we needed on our wedding day to keep us calm and relaxed. Her professionalism, talent and dedication to her work really shone through on the day. We absolutely love our wedding photos and my sister was so impressed with them that she booked her for her wedding the second she saw them. Thank you Emma. You are a true artist and a master at what you do X"

A bit more about me personally
Travel is in my blood. I like nothing better than exploring a new place, being consumed by new smells, sights and food. Meeting exciting people, having incredible road trip adventures and taking beautiful photographs fills my soul. (As does cake!)
I can also say, (with some exasperation and love) that I am a failed fosterer of many rescue animals. Ask me how many animals I have now!
I love West Cork landscapes and incorporating that nature into a wedding day, cold water swimming, Gougane Barra, walking the dogs on a beach at sunrise, sunshine on my face in spring time (actually anytime), Yoga With Adriene, camper-van adventures, my girlfriend Anna, Delicious creamy custard filled Pasteis de nata, vegetarian cooking and Portugal (which is where I grew up, so will always hold a special place in my heart).
