ABOUT EMILY & LORRAINE
photographing across suffolk, norfolk, essex, london & beyond
I live in the Suffolk countryside, hot mug of tea in hand, with my musician husband and our two little humans. Here we seek out the slow. I fill my days with the simple, beautiful parts of life and take time to notice the lights and shadows that dance themselves through daily life.
I adore rummaging around vintage stores, candlelit yummy dinners with friends, and dancing in the kitchen to vinyl records; myself and Rich bonded over a love of Bowie. I love getting lost in Wes Anderson movies and I’m happiest when I can feel the sun on my skin.
Photography is what I’m most at home doing and it has long been a part of my daily life. I adore shooting film and digital and learning understanding the delicate artistry that goes into learning both. A box of very well-loved polaroid photographs can be found on a shelf above my desk – unless it’s out, as it often is, for me to rummage through our memories and keep adding to. There’s nothing better than the feeling of looking back through old photographs and noticing all the little details in those memories; it’s why I love helping you preserve yours too..
People and connection is so integral to the way I shoot – I adore the ‘big deal’ stuff like the vows, but equally I love nothing more than capturing the proud looks and nervous hand squeezes, best friends belly laughing together, the clinking of glasses and all the little bits of human connection you might not have noticed… it’s the best.
You’ll find me living in sunny Suffolk with my husband and our beautiful daughter. I adore being by the sea and the brisk seaside winds that come hand in hand. Evenings around a fire with friends are where I’m happiest; the sound of laughter amongst the crackles of the logs just cannot be beaten.
Photographing weddings is what I’ve been put on this magnificent planet to do. Because, yes; love does indeed make the world go round. Cheesy, but true. And frankly, after the past few years, it’s time to finally relax and celebrate with our very best people.
I couldn’t have been happier when Emily asked me to permanently join the team. We’re so similar; not just in personality but our style and approach to shooting a wedding too. I love getting to know our incredible clients and the friendships we make. One of the things I really look forward to, is the pre-wedding call to chat through the nitty gritty details before the wedding. Hearing our couples so animated and excited for what’s ahead, seeing it all come to fruition on the day and leaving at the end feeling so proud of what they achieved, feeling like I’ve known them forever – there’s nothing better.
We are luxury wedding photographers specialising in photojournalistic imagery, telling the stories of weddings and luxury gatherings, frame by frame – there’s no awkward posing here! We also offer timeless, feel-good photographs for wonderful families and documentary photography for joyous and events.
Between us, over fifteen years we have developed a distinct photographic style that marries photojournalism and beautiful portraiture, seeking out the moments in which the overwhelming joy of love is present in its many forms. In doing so, our couples can relive their day in natural, playful wedding imagery with artistry and imagination at its heart. We take influences from fashion, art and music in to our work.
All our wedding and family clients are as unique as their celebrations. Our images capture the narrative of your wedding, considering the unique partnership between a couple, their loved ones, the location, and their celebration; crafting an intimate and honest portrait of their happiest days.
Our approach to our clients is simply about connection and trust. It is always a privilege to be present for every wedding, celebration, gathering or family we photograph. The most important thing to us is to work unobtrusively and respectfully with you and your loved ones; ensuring that we document each moment, focusing on the natural flow as the day unfolds. Whether this is as part of an exquisite wedding or the beautiful everyday in the life of your family, our approach is the same. We want your experience of being photographed to be easy and relaxed. You want timeless photographs to remember all the big deal moments but all the tiny moments of human connection like the nervous hand squeezes and clinking of glasses too… If this sounds like you, then we’ll be the perfect match.
We both take on a limited number of weddings and commissions each year in order to truly dedicate time, space, and energy to each of our unique clients.
After eight years photographing exquisite wedding celebrations and beautiful family portraits, Emily decided to share the knowledge and skills she’s picked up along the way. She’s now proud to offer tuition through hosting portfolio building photography workshops and through her 1-1 mentoring programmes. Her past mentoring clients have had incredible results and she couldn’t be more proud of them.
