About

Like most photographers, I am better with pictures than words, so I’ll keep this short and sweet and let my photographs do the talking for me!

I photograph weddings for awesome chilled out couples that like to have a laugh on their day who want relaxed, beautiful and real photographs of their day!

I was born in Jersey, the Channel Islands, but grew up in Portugal. Twelve years ago I came to Ireland for six months for work and never left!  I now live in wild & wonderful West Cork, but I still love to travel whenever I can.

I love freshly brewed coffee in the mornings, sunshine on my face, pasteis de nata,  Lindt chocolate, small intimate fireside evenings with a good bottle of Ripasso wine, exploring and adventuring and taking off in our VW camper for weekends away.

I like to meet people before the day so we can have a coffee or glass of wine and get to know each other. If the images here resonate with you please do get in touch and let’s chat!

 

“Emma took our photos for our wedding and booking her was one of the best decisions we made. We’d choose her a 1000 times again. She made us feel relaxed throughout the day and she did everything with a smile. Everything was so stress and trouble free and our beautiful photos reflect that. Thanks for capturing great memories Emma!! x” Aisling & Joe 2014

 

Emma has been a freelance photographer for over twelve years and her work regularly appears in national and local media, such as The Irish Times, The Examiner, The Limerick Leader and The Southern Star. Before becoming a freelancer she worked as part of the Press 22 (www.press22.ie) team and was nominated for numerous awards with the Press Association of Ireland (PPAI) in both the News and Politics categories. She relocated to West Cork four years ago and is available locally, nationally and internationally for work. Although she photographs weddings and civil ceremonies all over Ireland, Asia and South America, it is travel photography that is her greatest passion. Emma’s approach to photography combines patience, humour and talent. She takes time to consider the subject in its setting, ensuring the composition, light and exposure all enhance the final result. Her photography and teaching style are informative and relaxed; ideal gateways into this art form.
