I would like to share with you a part of me life, let me introduce myself: Francesca Emma wedding photographer and events photographer. I am primarily a London wedding photographer and event photographer, however both my wedding and event photography takes me all over the UK and with destination weddings I have travelled as far a field as Thailand where I was lucky enough to photograph a wedding in Bangkok as well as many events all over the world, most recently weddings in Paris, Bordeaux, Zurich and Spain.
Every morning I wake up and look out of my window and gaze at my beautiful garden and smile and think to myself how lucky am I to have the best job in the world, documenting real life stories of whether it be one of love, as a wedding photographer really is what dreams are made of, or as an event photographer mixing with a diverse selection of people attending many different venues, challenges and places. Event and wedding photography is fast paced, you need to be aware of everything going on around you ensuring that nothing is missed.
I started my career as a fashion photographer and portrait photographer, which really gives a great advantage in knowing how to get the very best from my subjects. My years of a Wedding photographer and events photographer has taught me to really understand light, angles and how to relax people, I love being around people and really believe that we all have our own beauty and as a wedding photographer it is my job to really enhance the beauty in my brides and clients who come to me for their portrait photography. I am very happy to work in a studio environment however I also enjoy being working with the beautiful things that nature has given us and keeping things as natural as possible.
With my wedding photography I have a favourite quotes – “Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead” – Oscar Wilde
My story as a photographer starts from a very young age I constantly had a camera in my hand documenting and exploring anything and everything, there was plenty to be photographed. I was born in Sussex and was fortunate to be close to the sea, the most magnificent county side and the excitement of London. I was lucky enough to go to Art School and explored all different genres of art but every time I always came back to photography.
I now live between Fulham, London and Forest Row, Sussex with my beautiful daughter and dog Cherry and am happy enough to be able to call myself a professional wedding photographer and event photographer. For the past 15 years I have been an event photographer and more recently I have also found my niche as a Wedding Photographer, photographing weddings up and down the country for all Denominations and Nationalities, it’s a huge privilege for me and every wedding I am invited to photograph is a wonderful experience to capture a couple in love story and marriage.
Every couple have their own different story and every wedding is unique and beautiful. My style as a wedding photographer is photo journalism with a bit of tradition and a romantic twist. No two weddings are ever the same and I strive to portray your story in my photography and in every wedding I photograph to find something very individual.
