Hello, I’m Emily. I’m a family and wedding documentary photographer. For me, this means I love capturing authentic moments. Intensely.
Did you know that cases of anxiety and depression have risen steadily over the last 60 years? A whopping 8 million of us in the UK suffer or have suffered from a condition that can be truly debilitating. And here is a cheery thought... suicide is the biggest killer of young people in Britain...
There is overwhelming evidence to show that we are becoming a generation that is forgetting to love "moments", forgetting to love the ordinary. 5 year olds are already established consumers always wanting the next gadget; 11 year olds stress about their SATs results (actually, their parents do, so their kids do too); our 16-24 year olds are reported to be the loneliest group of our society; early 30 year olds kill themselves trying to achieve their career ideals whilst at the same time needing to be "perfect parents", and so it goes on... every generation tries to aim for something that is slightly beyond their grasp. Earn a little more, to buy a little more, to be a little more happy. Except it appears that behind all the social media rose-tinted images we post... we're not...
So this is why I love moments. I went through the cycle above... and for a while, I forgot to love these moments , I forgot to love the ordinary (and sometimes still do!). So now, I love spending my time capturing them. Coz after all, they're all we've got, aren't they?
So if you too are getting fed up with all the fake happiness, fake insta lives and fake smiles, and just want help with capturing your authentic moments, give me a bell. I have been told by paying clients that I do capture moments well, ones that you don't even realise are there. So if you want yours captured and like my style, drop me a line.
