Emma Pilkington


With a background in fashion photography I have developed a very personal wedding style. I love natural light, simplicity, beautiful locations, and shooting on film.

My fashion work has been featured in publications including I Love You Magazine, Hunger Magazine,, ASOS Magazine and Material Girl.

Weddings and bridal shoots have taken me all across the UK and France. I have had the opportunity to shoot with designers and boutiques including Maria Senvo, Shell Belle Lingerie and The White Closet.

I shoot weddings for couples who prefer a relaxed yet beautiful style of imagery. My approach to photographing a wedding is inspired by fashion editorials and reportage photography. I have an unobtrusive style of shooting and like to capture the special moments when they happen, without getting in the way or staging them. I then like to shoot some fashion style portraits with the bride and groom, to give you some truly unique images from your day.

I enjoy working with natural light as much as possible, so the images of your special day look exactly how you remember them. I have successfully photographed a variety of different weddings, and couples have always appreciated my hands-off approach that lets me think creatively and deliver my version of their day as beautifully and as naturally as I can.

I’m based between Manchester and Cardiff, but I cover all of the UK and I also have a passport and am happy to travel.


"Emma was the perfect choice for our wedding. She was very professional and well mannered. And she got so many lovely, happy, natural looking (and flattering!) shots of the whole day - just what we wanted. My family and I were totally made up with the photos. Thank you so much Emma!!"

"Worked with Emma professionally and she is amazing - now were getting married I couldn't have anyone else capture our wedding day. She really is amazing and so lovely."

- Lucy & Sam

"We chose Emma to take our Wedding photos and she did a fun engagement shoot with us too. With a fashion edge and a relaxed style, we were utterly delighted with the ultra stylish shots she gave us. The thought of a bunch of clichéd wedding line ups filled us with horror!! Emma really understood the informal look and feel we wanted. I'd recommend her unreservedly. Thanks again Emma - we still cherish our photos."
