Are you looking for a wedding photographer?
Organizing a wedding is a big task. You have a list of hundreds of things to think about and do before your big day. The venue, the dress, the guest list, the flowers, the bridesmaids, the car, the food, the DJ, all the details that come with it, the invitations, the cake, hairstyle, make-up, videographer, photographer ... the list is endless. I bet you already feel overwhelmed. Let me help you with at least one essential thing from that list: choosing a wedding photographer. You may have already started looking but don't know how to choose and who to choose?
I understand your struggle. This is the most important day in your life, and you want it to be perfect. You want to find someone who can take great photographs, guide you through the entire wedding day process, advise on how to pose, suggest which package will be best for you, a photographer who will help you design the photo book or create some wall art.
You want to get the best out of that day and create beautiful memories that you will cherish for a very long time. Memories are our most precious assets, and photography is a must for capturing them.
Before you go straight to my offer, I have prepared a small guide to help you decide which photographer best suits your needs! It will help you answer questions like:
- How to choose a wedding photographer?
- Should I get to know my photographer?
- A few things about reviews
- Should I sign a photography contract?
- Should the photographer be insured?
- Should a photographer have a wedding offer?

WHO AM I?
Hi! My name is Emilia, and I am a wedding and lifestyle photographer based in Barnsley, South Yorkshire. However, I am happy to travel all over the UK and the world if you want me to be your photographer! On a daily basis, I am an outdoor lover, a mom of one, a food enthusiast, a dancer, a free spirit... I could add some more here; however, you can check my ABOUT ME section under the link and find out a bit more :)
If you would like to see more of my wedding portfolio, please have a look here: SAMPLE WEDDING PORTFOLIO. You can see not only the entire wedding day shoots but also post-wedding outdoor shoots. My style is light and airy, intimate, and romantic. I always look for candid moments during your wedding to capture the spirit of the event.
Make sure you check my ENGAGEMENT PORTFOLIO as well :) Having an engagement shoot is a great way to meet and get to know your photographer before the wedding. If you want to know more about engagement photography, you can check my blog, where you will find plenty of valuable tips and knowledge about it as well.
WHAT ARE OTHERS SAYING?
You can find some of my reviews below or at the bottom of this page. Alternatively, they are on my Facebook page or Instagram stories under reviews!
She captured the magic!
Emilia was an absolute dream as a photographer. She made both my partner and I feel at ease by getting to know us before the shoot and generally being very warm-hearted. She really captured the mood and emotion of the day, giving us an abundance of 'artwork' that we will admire for years to come.
Her entire process was very professional, with an outstanding online gallery from which we could view our photos. This was like an added part of the experience for my partner and I to view the photos together in style and then choose which ones we would like to print.
Emilia asked me if there was any (body)part of myself that I didn't feel confident about and she took that into account, which meant that I was really able to love the photos and not feel self-conscious. We really felt like she cared and that she is passionate about what she does. As a result, her photos speak for themselves!
I'm really grateful and feel blessed that we had Emilia capture our special day.
Nuneeta & Gareth
High-quality life experience.
It was a wonderful wedding photoshoot with Emila. She helped us choose the best place, she worked with us all day long supporting us the posing for photos. We felt at ease in front of the camera lens. It was an incredible day with a good team. She also helped us create a beautiful commemorative album and gave us back the processed photos very quickly! Big massive thank you!
We will definitely repeat the photoshoot with Emilia :)

WHAT’S MY BOOKING PROCESS?
If you are happy with my style and attitude, let's have a chat. You can fill in my wedding contact form below to inquire about your day. At that point, it would be great if you have your wedding day and venue is chosen, so I know which day I should book in my calendar and how far it is from where I am based. :) If you haven't chosen your venue yet, you can still get in touch with me :) If you would rather see me in person to have a chat about my service, you can either come to Barnsley or meet me via Zoom. It would be a basic consultation where we would discuss your needs and ideas and choose the best package, and you would also have the chance to see my printed portfolio and other printed products. While having a cup of coffee, you can ask me anything. I am always happy to advise.
Regardless, if you want to meet or book straight away, first, I need to check if I am available that day. After that, I ask for a £250 non-refundable deposit (if cancelled by the client) to secure your date. The remaining amount is due at least two months before the wedding, and it can be split into three instalments if necessary.
WHAT'S HAPPENING NEXT?
If your deposit is paid, I will send you a photography agreement to sign, and we are sorted for now. Everything is done electronically. About two months before the wedding, we schedule a wedding consultation, preferably in person or via zoom, to discuss all the details, as by that time, you should know all the essential bits :)
WHAT'S MY ACTUAL OFFER?
With each package, you will always receive the following:
- Access to an online gallery (password-protected) where your photos will be stored for a month. You can share your pictures on social media or with your friends and family. Everyone with a link and password will have access. Everyone can also create their favorite lists of photos, download them, or even order some prints while scrolling through the gallery.
- Wedding consultations where we discuss all your needs and ideas as mentioned above (about two months before the wedding)
- Traveling within 50 miles of Barnsley, South Yorkshire; however, I don't mind traveling further! I am always very excited if I can travel further, so do not hesitate to contact me if you are based across the country!
- High-resolution professionally edited photos without a watermark. They will look similar to the other images you had a chance to see in my portfolio :)
- Editing time up to 4 weeks. I don't like when couples wait too long for their photos, so I always aim to deliver all galleries as soon as possible.
- A discount voucher for any other photo shoot (e.g., family, pregnancy, hen party). You can use it or give it to someone. The amount of the discount depends on the package you choose.
- Around 10 best highlights edited within 48 hours from the wedding so you can share them with your friends and family!
- Possibility to add a second shooter to the package. £250 up to 6 hours, £300 up to 12 hours.
BESPOKE PRINTED PRODUCTS
They are a real treasure! You will be watching them and showing them to your family and friends with a huge nostalgia on your face :) The actual copies of the photos that you can hold in your hands or hang on the wall will be a fantastic gift you can give to yourself or your family. It's like a cherry on top.
I make beautiful customized photo books, photo boxes, USB drives, or large-format prints. If you'd like to see what I can make for you, please have a look here PHOTO PRODUCTS.

“We had our engagement shoot with Emilia at the weekend and had an amazing time. She made us both feel so relaxed and captured us both perfectly! We received the images really quickly and are over the moon with them. Can't wait to book for our wedding. Thanks again x”
Paulina & George
,,We've popped on Emilia's website through Hitched recommendations, we were searching for a wedding photographer, and Emilia's style was exactly what we were looking for. Our wedding was a small ceremony for 20 people, and we wanted this moment to be captured on photographes to have good memories to go back to, but what Emilia done was above and beyond! Starting with amazing contact prior to the wedding going through what we want and what we were expecting to the actual wedding day, she captured all the surroundings made an amazing impression not only on us but on family, friends and the owners. She made everyone feel comfortable and captured moments the way we didn't even think is possible. We've loved every movement of working with Emilia, nothing was to much, she made us feel relaxed and created great photos! And on top of that we've received our highlights in less then 24h which made the facebook annoucemnt even more elevated also rest of the photos followed soon after that which was very impressive taking in considiration that most of the times those are provided weeks after the wedding but thats not the case with Emilia! If you are thinking about booking any photoshoot with Emilia don't even hesitate! We can't recommend Emila enough!!!''

As a huge nature lover, I decided to make a difference and, while doing my job, do something for our planet as well. So, together with ONE TREE PLANTED, I plant trees. Each time you book a wedding with me, I plant 10 trees, and if you book any other shoot, I plant 3! I do this because our planet is our home, and you do take care of your home.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO BOOK ME FOR YOUR DAY? HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO DO NEXT
Please fill out the below contact form tell me more about your day and see if I'm available. I then schedule a consultation or a call with you to discuss your needs, ideas, and packages.
Booking a photographer is one of the greatest investments you can make, as the photographs will be reminding you that special day for years to come!
Do we receive the unedited images?
As a photographer, I consider myself being an artist who does not like to show unfinished work. Editing is part of the job. So, unfortunately, I don’t offer all the unedited images only the edited ones included within your package.
How far do you travel?
As far as you want me to! As I love to explore new places travelling has never been an issue. Extra travel costs can be added on top, depending on how far from Barnsley you want me to travel.
When will we receive our photographs?
Editing any pictures takes plenty of time. The more pictures you choose, the more it takes. If it's a small shoot like a family, maternity, couple or small birthday party or hen party, then it takes up to two weeks. If it is a wedding, then up to four weeks. I do my best to deliver the photos as soon as possible, so sometimes, if I am not that busy, you can have them quicker.
What is the booking process?
Get in touch by filling out the wedding contact form. We can then discuss your needs through the phone or schedule a meeting in person or via zoom. I always try to meet in person as I can also show you my printed portfolio and some great albums we can create together :) After your enquiry is made I am asking for a deposit to secure the date which is £250 and we also sign the photography agreement which includes the service I provide for you.
Do you work alone?
Yes, I do work alone however if you would like a second shooter, especially during your wedding then I know some great photographers who will be happy to assist. Cost of adding a second shooter is £250. They will shoot with me during your wedding and then pass the photos to me so I can edit them and them deliver to you as a whole gallery.
Do you require a deposit?
I ask my clients for a £250 deposit if they want to secure a date and book me for their wedding day. The deposit is non-refundable if I am cancelled within 8 weeks before the wedding day.
Can I order prints and albums?
Of course! All your photographs are provided at full quality with no watermarks, which means you’re welcome to print them away. I do bespoke photo books, photo boxes, large format prints, crystal boards, USB drives and traditional albums. You can have a read about them just above under PRINTED PRODUCTS.
