Beautiful Photography from Jay Emme
One of the best things about this, is when people come up to me with a nervous face, and say, “Ninjographer? …what, do you take stealth photos or something?” And my answer is always “HELLS YEAH!”
I’m a wedding photographer (who really IS addicted to weddings) who prefers to blend into the shadows, not be in people’s faces, and photograph your day exactly as it’s happening. I don’t boss people around – instead, I become a guest with a camera, who is capturing everything awesome from your day. I know that you don’t want someone who will repeatedly draw attention to themselves – the day isn’t about me, it’s about you, your partner, and your lovely friends and family!
When you start planning your wedding, you would hope other people could be as excited about it as you are. I don’t like to take your money and then go silent until the big day. I work closely with you, as a team. I think that’s IMPORTANT for all involved, in order to shoot your Best Day Ever! And if you’re planning some pretty awesome stuff, you can bet your butt I will want to share some of that excitement with you!
I’m definitely a creative wedding photographer. None of the same old traditional stuff you’ve seen a thousand times before, life is too short for that. I will shoot your day exactly as it happens, and we’ll have a time out for some MORE FUN! I love new ideas, challenges, shooting on film, and awesome weddings.
I live in Hollywood, Worcestershire, and travel the whole of the UK with no additional travel fees. I also travel internationally – my passport never rests!
I can’t wait to hear from you!
What's NOT to love??!? I can't get enough of brides realising how gorgeous they look WITHOUT Photoshop. I love all the details showing off the imagination and personalities of the couple. I love being on the road, travelling to the wedding and wondering what adventure I will have that day. I cannot get enough of the dance floor antics at the end of the day. I ADORE that moment when a groom (or bride!) throws his hands in the air and cheers loudly after they've had the first kiss. I get excited by the nerves and anticipation, calm and restless excitement, as the couples get ready for the wedding day. I get happily nostalgic going back through the photos, long after I've edited them. I love the fact that I make brilliant new friends, every time. Seriously, what's not to love about weddings?
The best advice I could give to any couple looking for their wedding photographer, is to absolutely get to know the photographer AS WELL AS their work. Browse their website and get a feel for their style of photography, and then work out if they're the sort of person you would invite to your wedding. Remember, that person is going to be with you the whole day, and it's important that you get on with them incredibly well. It can be hard to tell, at first, but even things like taking a look at their various business social media accounts (Facebook, instagram, twitter, Google + etc) before contacting them, can give you an idea of what they're like!
My passport NEVER sleeps - I love to travel and would definitely get on a plane/boat/train/submarine/spaceship for you!
