I’M EMMA! I CAPTURE MOMENTS AND TALK ABOUT DOGS (A LOT)

I can be found taking photos at weddings most weekends and during the week, if I'm not busy editing I am probably out taking in a pretty sunset, walking my dogs at the beach, or relentlessly chasing them around with my camera.

After graduating high school & being offered a place at uni for psychology, I decided on a whim that I wanted to take time to investigate this really enjoyable "photography" hobby that I had taken up towards the end of high school. I enrolled in a TAFE course with my trusty film SLR in my hot little hands.

I never looked back - there was just nothing that compared to capturing an instant in time, an expression of love or excitement - I knew that I had found my passion! For this reason, 10 years ago, I decided that I wanted to document weddings and all the fun and emotion that is poured into them!

Something unexpected happened back in 2012 when I was asked if I would consider photographing a wedding in Vanuatu. UMMMM YESSS PLEASE! Since then I have traveled across this beautiful country and overseas as a destination wedding photographer to capture some incredible celebrations and I just couldn't think of a cooler way to see the world! So far I've photographed weddings in Vanuatu, Fiji, Bali, Queenstown NZ, Hayman Island, Daydream Island, Port Douglas, Melbourne, Sydney and Byron Bay. I would love nothing more than anything to expand my destination wedding portfolio to include some of my bucket list locations like South Africa, Canada, Germany, Iceland, USA, Ireland & Germany!

SOME THINGS ABOUT ME…

... after all, if you're going to spend your whole wedding day with someone who is constantly taking photos of you, you should probably know a thing or two about them!

I have two mini dachshunds who are my babies. Their names are Pepper & Bueno and they turned me into a Crazy Dog Lady.

I overuse exclamation marks and emojis, that's just who I am as a person ;)

I'm married to a pretty cool guy who likes to do things like gardening and building things out of wood. Our wedding was so much fun. Apparently I can't get married every weekend but luckily people ask me to spend their wedding days with them so I'm putting those post-wedding blues on hold foreverrrrr!

I love cake, pineapple & coconut everything, going on adventures, interrupting conversations to point out dogs, picnics, freshly baked bread, snuggling under a blanket and reading a book on a rainy day, laughing until my stomach hurts and binge watching tv shows on Netflix (usually while editing photos).

I want to travel the world making my own memories and capturing other peoples!

I know all the words to an impressive portfolio of 90's hip hop and rap songs, but none of them are very "cool". Just call me the Fresh Prince.

I believe pets are family and a snuggle with my girls is all I need to turn a bad day around.
