Overwhelmed would be an understatement – I still can’t believe that I won Bespoke Wedding Photographer of the year in the South West Wedding Awards – If I’m honest I sort of thought I’d dreamt it (or that I’d made it into the matrix and made up my own awards to win) but this pretty piece of glass is still on the shelf and I am just so bloody grateful to all of my super wonderful couples who voted for me (then made me weep after reading all their comments). It has taken me a week to digest it really as there are so many amazingly talented photographers in the south west. For me it’s not really about being the best in the area (I don’t believe that to be true for one second) it’s about being the best fit for my couples and this award must mean I’m getting that bit right – and that is the bit I’m most excited and proud about – not least because it’s the only thing that really matters. When I set up this little freckle of mine, all I wanted was to find the right people and the right couples to find me, by being honest and as much myself as possible. I am so happy to be doing this and can only hope that I continue to be found by my favourite kind of people; those who laugh easily, love hard and have generous hearts. Thank you SO much to all of you who have voted. Each and every one of you xx
I’m sharing these comments because they made me laugh and cry, you lot are just ace…(and don’t feel you have to read them all – I just couldn’t pick out any faves)
Amazing photography and really made us feel relaxed during our day. Engagement shoot allowed us to meet long before our big day so Emma could really understand what we wanted.
Outstanding service provided by Emma and the photos were AMAZING!
Emma is a fantastic photographer who is kind, I would definitely consider her a friend now. She captured so many special moments from our day and I’ll always be thankful to her
Emma from Freckle is the best photographer and a wonderful addition to anyone’s wedding day. She arrived early because she was excited to get started and even stayed beyond the time we paid her for out of good will to capture the first dance as we ran late. The photos are beautiful and she really captured the spirit and fun of the day. I have since recommended her to a friend who has also booked her for their upcoming wedding. I could not recommended her highly enough, and all of this for a very reasonable price to top it off!
Amazing photos and Emma is a lovely lady!! Thanks so much for the most beautiful wedding photos- you’re the best!
Emma was amazing from start to finish. Highly professional yet personable. Her skills with the camera are astounding! We love every single photo she took and thanks to Emma we have some wonderful.memories captured! I can’t recommend Freckle Photography more highly!
An incredible photographer who captures every special moment beautifully. Emma is relaxed, easy going and an expert in her field. Will be using Emma for other photography projects/needs in the future.
Emma was fantastic, so friendly, committed and easy to get to know. Her photos were just brilliant, and we got so many that it was like re-living the day minute by minute! She is a lovely person with a real talent and certainly deserves recognition!
Emma is an absolute super star – she really does have an eye for capturing the most perfect moments as well as taking utterly stunning photos – all a work of art as opposed to your standard photographs.
I have been recommending Emma left right and centre as she really is the best around!!! No one deserves it more than Emma!! Xx
Emma was fantastic, from the minute we met on our engagement shoot the nerves disappeared and we had fun. From the beautiful pictures taken that day we knew we were going to have some special pictures on the big day. We had the best day and Emma didn’t feel like just the photographer, more like one of our lovely guests. Emma has a great eye for where and how a picture might work and we have so many lovely pictures of us and all our guests to treasure. Most probably the best money we’ve ever spent, highly recommended.
Emma was an amazing photographer and we loved having her as part of our day. She captured every moment perfectly and I couldn’t thank her enough. I highly recommend Emma.
Emma is amazing, all our guests said how fabulous she was. She blended into our wedding so easily, was like having a great friend take our photos. She put so much passion into what she does and she went beyond what was asked. Had a great time on our pre wedding shoot as well. The amount of commemts we have had regarding our photos has been overwhelming. They are gorgeous. I love the personal touch too with sending us our USB with photos in a lovely wooden box, personal letter and some already printed photos of us. Which we thought was a lovely thing for her to do. She was well worth her fee and more. Emma really is outstanding and the most warm and friendly person , So much hard work she has put in and totally deserves to win !!! 🙂 woop woop go Emma !!
Emma was extremely professional and was also able to guide us in a very reassuring way. We were always relaxed around her and were absolutely delighted with the photos that she produced for us. We have also had a lot of great comments from our friends and family as they have also been impressed by the photos.
Truly professional but friendly experience. Our photos tell a complete story of our magical day. We didn’t know Emma was there most of the time!
Fantastic! Lovely to deal with and the pictures were everything we hoped for and more! Cant recommend Freckle Photography highly enough.
Can’t praise Emma enough, felt very lucky to have her as our photographer
Emma of Freckle Photography is a truly talented photographer who has an infectious enthusiasm for all things wedding! Pete and I were thrilled with her work and commitment from first correspondence, to pre-wedding shoot and the big day, through to the beautifully designed albums which she got to us in time for us to give them as Christmas presents. She always got back to us promptly, even during her busiest wedding period, and the photos say it all! We were so glad to have found her and have recommended her to all our friends!
Just amazing and so friendly. Would recommend Emma to anyone. Beautiful person, beautiful photos.
Emma was absolutely fantastic! Right from the engagement shoot we felt at ease with her and she felt like one of the guests at the wedding! Her photos are stunning and capture the day in a relaxed and creative way perfectly.
Emma of Freckle photography is a amazing lady! We first met her on our engagement shoot and she made us feel relaxed and the photos were just beautiful! On our wedding day, I had no worries at all, I knew she would do us proud! Everyone said how down to earth and approachable she was, a few guests thought she was a friend-which of course she is now!! She just “got us” and took all the sorts of photos we were after. A talented, lovely easy going photographer, with the highest level of professionalism! Thanks again Em xxx
Emma’s photography is possibly the most skillful I have ever seen. The photos themselves were incredible, her manner was perfect and we could not have asked for more from her! She captured the essence of our wedding day in such a relaxed manner and gave us the most beautifully natural photos in a timely manner. This was the same when we had our introductory engagement shoot. Emma was just lovely to have around and managed people/events beautifully. She was calm, fun and professional; blending into the background with ease. Many of our guests commented on how personable she was and, when the photos came through, how they were the best they’d seen. She snapped the most stunning photos throughout the day; capturing all the most beautiful moments with such ease and with such a genuine passion for her work. We owe Emma a lot for her dedication to making our wedding photos exceed even our highest expectations.
She’s the best! So friendly and talented.
Emma is an incredible photographer and both our engagement shoot and wedding photography was absolutely perfect. She is warm and friendly and made us both feel so comfortable. She captured us perfectly and we constantly look back at our photos and are so glad that we chose Freckle Photography!
Wonderful photography- captured all the best moments of the day whilst being so discreet. We didn’t want intrusive photographers and Emma managed to get amazing photos and we hardly saw her! Great value when compared with other photographers. Emma was so lovely, friendly and helpful, especially for two people who aren’t used/ are very self conscious of being photographed. She made it easy to be ourselves in front of the camera and the shots are very natural and unposed as we wanted. All in all, I’m so glad we had Emma as our photographer, it felt like she was a friend we’d known for years and the service was exceptional, plus we liked the fact she had an environmentally friendly approach!
Included in the price was a great engagement photo shoot. She made us feel very comfortable and have fun with it. On the wedding day itself we barely noticed she was there, but she managed to capture some great reactions and moments on camera. We have been showing the photos off to people and their jaws drop!
Emma from Freckle Photography is quite simply the most talented, loveliest wedding photographer you could wish for!
Where do we start, Emma of Freckle Photography is quite simply amazing. My husband and I are both quite awkward when it comes to photographs, but Emma put us at ease straight away. Her beautiful photographs captured every essence of our day in such fantastic detail, catching us and our guests sharing happy moments from ceremony to celebrations. Everyone marveled at her friendly, professional nature and her wonderfully natural photos. We are delighted that we have such perfect mementos of our happy day!
Emma was truly truly fabulous, my day was shown as the perfect story. She made every moment shine in each of her pictures, even on the cloudy moments. She was extremely relaxed and made herself invisible when needed. She was terribly welcoming, ever so smiley and more importantly, professional, which made her a joy to have by your side for those personal moments (especially if you’re not very comfortable around a camera, which neither of us were/are). The products she supplies at the end are absolutely stunning, including the gorgeous wooden USB I carry around with my all the time just to show off some pics 😉 1 would 150% recommend her to anyone who is not just having bridal pictures but any occasion you want to capture perfectly forever.
Emma was wonderful and our photographs are beautiful, I adore out engagement photos which capture such beauty. She is now even doing my sisters wedding photography
We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer. Emma just got us straight away and made our day so special just by doing her thing. With anyone else it wouldn’t have been the same and we are so so happy with the photos. They are better than we could ever have imagined. Every detail from the engagement shoot to getting the photos was perfect and well thought out. She really is amazing at what she does and thoroughly deserves this award!
Emma was a fantastic photographer. She was so friendly and warm, and seemed like a friend from the beginning. The photos themselves were brilliant. We have had so many comments on how fantastic our photographer was.
Emma was a fantastic photographer and we are really pleased we chose her. The photos she took were beautiful and she blended seamlessly with our friends and family.
Emma was incredible in every way; she was very organised and communicative, lots of fun and really put us at ease on the day. She stopped at nothing to get a good shot – I still have memories of her sprinting through a field of sheep poo, with 3 heavy cameras hanging off her, to get photos of us riding a tractor. The photos are simply stunning, she is not just a photographer, but an artist. I can’t recommend her highly enough.
Absolutely brilliant photography, from the funky stationary, the efficient emails, the friendly manner that helped put us at ease. Emma was wonderful. A joy to spend our special day with.
Emma was totally amazing!! We had so many comments about how great, professional and friendly she was on the day. We were over the moon with all our photos we received.
