Wedding Photography

With my base in Milton Keynes, I am ideally placed to cover wedding photography in venues in Milton Keynes, Bedford, Buckingham, Northampton, Cambridge, and Peterborough. I  have had the privilege to photograph weddings at many venues, including but not limited to Longstowe Hall, The Stanwick Hotel, Chicheley Hall, Hothorpe Hall, Towcester Racecourses, Highgate House, Pendley Manor, Holiday Inn Newport Pagnell, Ladywood Estate, The Barns Hotel, Bedford School, Westminster College, Woughton House, and the Park Inn Bedford. I love to travel so please do get in touch if your wedding is a little further afield.

I travel throughout the World for wedding photography, I truly enjoy being part of your day and capturing the emotions and excitement of the day. I like to get to know my couple before their wedding day so that on the day you are relaxed and used to me, it feels more like you have an extra freind at your wedding. If your looking for a cold clinical approach I’m afraid that’s not me. If you book me to be your wedding photographer I want to know about your day. Do you have a theme or colour scheme? Do you have an outfit? If you do can I see it? If you have a Pinterest board share it with me, we can collaborate together. I am genuinely interested in your day and will be as involved as you want me to be.

On the day it’s self I’ll be there to help you throughout. Button fallen off, no problem I have a sewing kit and will sew it back on.  hair falling out, no problem I come armed with hair spray and grips to help  you. I have more non photogprahy stuff with me than photography equipment because if I can make your day less stressful I will.

I aim to capture a mixture of images that capture the day as it happens and working with you to create a few stand out or wow images where I help to gently guide you to create images you will treasure forever. I’m aware that not everyone is used to having a photographer around, sometimes your wedding is the first time you have had professional photos. This is why all of my all day packages include a pre-wedding shoot which gives us a chance to help you relax in front of the camera and work out the style of photos you like.

Portrait Photography

Portrait photography is something of a lost art. We all have phones and take photos on them every day of our loved ones, but how often do we think about the photo? Portrait photography is about capturing the essence of the person, their personality and who they are. When more than one person is involved it’s about capturing the relationships between them.

Your portrait photography session can take place in my Milton Keynes based studio or at a location of your choice. Before your session, we will discuss what your aim is for your final images, how will use them? Do you want a final image which can be displayed in your lounge? Or images for your relatives, knowing how you wish to use them we can work together towards this goal.

Newborn Photography

Newborn Photography is often the first opportunity to have professional photos of your new addition. I truly love newborn photography, capturing all those little details of your new baby. Their tiny hands, their little nose, just how small they really are. Any parent can tell you that after the first few weeks your newborn changes hugely. Babies only look newborn for a few weeks, so capturing these moments is so important. Babies grow so quickly.

My newborn photography sessions take place in my Milton Keynes based studio. This enables me to provide a safe and controlled environment for your newborn. I provide a variety of props to create unique images for you.

Emma is simply an amazing photographer!! From the beginning through to the end, Emma offered endless support, advice and guidance. Myself and Sara decided to book Emma for our engagement photos. We spent a whole day with Emma just walking through London capturing every moment perfectly, with a lot of laughs as I always find romantic poses a bit awkward. On the day itself we felt in good hands and it was like having a friend there with you. Emma’s experience and professionalism shines through, allowing you to relax and have an amazing time. When we received our first round of photos we couldn’t be happier with the results, Emma is super talented and has a genuine passion for what she does, I think she was more excited than us to see the final photos. She nailed it! If you are thinking about booking a professional photographer Emma is the perfect fit. You won’t be disappointed. The moments Emma captured that day we will cherish forever, can’t wait to see what Emma has in store for our wedding day. Amazing job Emma, from myself and Sara thanks for the awesome day and getting my good side

Craig and Sara
A lovely, friendly and professional lady who obviously has a passion for what she does. Even better, she isn't precious about getting her way or the high way...if you have a suggestion she'll talk you through it and help you get exactly what you want. Recommended.

Emma is such a excellent photographer, the photos Emma took was outstanding quality and amazing value. I was so happy with the pictures and the effort she put in. She has so much patience and also such a lovely person! I couldn’t thank Emma enough. I would highly recommend!!

Emma is fantastic. She did a photo shoot with my son when he was a newborn and she captured some gorgeous shots of our little boy. She has loads of great ideas for different types of shot and was really patient with our little one, allowing breaks when he was getting a bit fidgety. She also managed to get some great shots of our baby with our dog which isn’t an easy feat as our puppy is a bouncy little thing. She also did a follow up shoot at Christmas for us and captured some beautiful images of our boy using lots of Christmas props. A great photographer to use x

We were lucky enough to have Emma photograph our wedding in July 2019 and she was amazing. She was more than just a photographer - she helped out, gave really good advice and the photos she took really are stunning. We highly recommend you get in touch with her. You’ll see just how knowledgeable and talented she is!

We’re so glad we chose Emma to be our wedding photographer, she’s certainly very talented at what she does. She was patient, kind to all our guests and helped us to feel so comfortable in front of the camera and captured every beautiful moment on our wedding day, the wedding pictures came out so amazing and we couldn’t be more happier with them. I would definitely recommend Purple Rose photography.

My new wife and I booked Emma for our wedding in October and we're both so glad that we did! Emma was professional throughout, keeping appointments, answering our (stupid) questions gladly throughout and generally setting our minds at ease. When it came to the day itself Emma was timely, efficient and really helped the day to go smoothly. She was able to quietly go about her business in the background when she needed to be invisible, but also organised our guests and got us all in order when required, whilst constantly popping up with some great photo suggestions throughout the day. She was happy to embrace the soggy weather and was really committed to capturing some the key moments in our day, as well as the little ones that made the day so special - despite the certain prospect of getting sopping wet! Hand on heart we can say that Emma (and Grant) fitted in seamlessly and just did the perfect job. We are so happy with the digital photos she's provided us and can't wait to see the album we have ordered. I would not hesitate to recommend Emma and Purple Rose Photography if you are looking for a wedding photographer for your own special day!
