Emma Russell Photography Reviews

“If you have the chance to book Emma Russell for your wedding, you should not hesitate. We were absolutely thrilled to have her as our photographer for the day. Our wedding, already complex because we were planning from Boston, was delayed by a year thanks to Covid. Having suppliers that were kind and dependable was far more important than we could have known when we originally began planning. Emma happily rebooked for us and could not have been more understanding, despite it being such a difficult time for the wedding industry. She was super communicative and patient while we had many trips to Dublin cancelled.

As for the actual wedding photography – she is phenomenal. She was a great presence on the day – calm but firm – and went above and beyond to make sure she got the best shots (shoving that giant couch to make room for my veil for instance!). And the pictures were beautiful. Choosing a few favourites to display will be difficult. There were even some sneak peak shots as early as the next morning – helped keep my impatience at bay!

We highly recommend working with Emma if you get the chance – you will not be disappointed.”

“Emma is a fantastic wedding photographer! We chose to go with her because we loved the creativity and style in her work, and she did not disappoint. She was very professional and easy to deal with, and on the day she was fantastic for putting us at our ease and making great photo suggestions. The photos turned out wonderfully, with all of our favourite moments captured. One of the photos even won Emma a photography award, which we think is very well deserved! We can’t recommend her highly enough.”

“We wholeheartedly recommend Emma Russell for any couple looking for a wedding photographer. She is just incredible at what she does. We were both quite fussy when it came to choosing a photographer for our wedding in July this year and initially chose Emma for her contemporary, artistic and natural style of photography.

From the very beginning she was so helpful. We had a couple of telephone conversations with her prior to our wedding. She was photographing our three wedding ceremonies and so her input regarding timings was invaluable. Her experience was especially useful as she understood how long we needed for each aspect of the wedding and this really reduced our stress when having to advise each of our suppliers regarding timings.

From the moment we met Emma on the day of our first ceremony, she was so warm and put us at ease straight away. Whilst she is professional, she also has a beautiful, bubbly personality which meant she was a lot of fun to work with. As two people who are usually camera shy, she provided us with just the right amount of guidance, which resulted in outstanding photos, which we will cherish forever. She also got on so well with our families and friends, which meant she was able to capture wonderful candid photos of our guests. Emma also ensured that we maximised our time with our guests and enjoyed our day(s), ensuring that everything was seamless. She was very efficient when taking couples photos and photos of larger groups. Our guests are still talking about our amazing photographer!

Looking back at our photos, she captured every moment just perfectly. Like a lot of couples who got married this year, our extended families were unable to travel from overseas for our ceremonies. She so beautifully captured every moment from the small details that made our wedding personal, to all of the emotions and special moments with our families and friends. We have watched the slideshows that Emma created for us so many times, re-living the precious moments that she captured. We can’t recommend Emma enough. She is truly talented and an absolute dream to work with.”

“There are no words for how talented Emma really is. Being a wedding photographer myself I usually spend most of my time scrolling & scrolling on Instagram studying wedding photography. Emma’s work is just impeccable. I’m extremely picky so hats off to emma I couldn’t fault a thing I loved everything she captured. My family & friends just loved the photos!

Our photos flew by and we had such a laugh with her! Everything was seamless. Can’t thank emma enough!”

We wholeheartedly recommend Emma Russell to any couple in search of a wedding photographer. We hired Emma for our wedding earlier this year and we couldn’t have been happier! Not only is she an incredible, talented photographer but she is one of the nicest people we have ever met. She is an absolute delight to have with you on your wedding day, something that was very important to us. From the moment we booked, Emma was so friendly, professional and such a joy to work with.

We feel in love with Emma’s contemporary, artistic and natural style of photography, so much so I found myself completely glued to her Instagram page. On the day, Emma instantly got on so well with our families and friends too which kept everything relaxed and meant she could capture all the fun of everyone enjoying themselves. Despite a rainy afternoon Emma found the perfect spots for our portrait photos and although we wouldn’t normally be very comfortable in front of a camera, she managed to put us at ease and we couldn’t be happier with the results! Our photos are beyond our wildest expectations. Emma has beautifully captured our entire day from all the small details that made our wedding personal, to all the emotions and precious moments that we have been re-living ever since.

We can’t thank you enough Emma, we will treasure your photos forever!”

I cant stop looking at mine! I just love them so much! Thanks Emma again for such a great job! We will cherish them forever!”

“We had Emma for our wedding in July and were blown away when we received our photos. She is incredibly talented and captured so many gorgeous and hilarious moments for us. On the day, she was super organised, efficient (useful when organising my massive family!) and was genuinely warm and funny. We booked our wedding from Australia and so really appreciated the fact that Emma was so easy to deal with, quick to answer emails and reliable. Would HIGHLY recommend!”

Roisin & Anthony – July 2019

“Cannot recommend Emma highly enough! Both my husband and I agree that booking Emma as our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions we made. As well as being amazingly talented at what she does, Emma was brilliant to work with on the day and put us both at ease. The finished photos were fabulous and we will treasure them forever.Thank you again Emma!”
