The Best Wedding Testimonial You Might Ever Read.

“There are wedding photographers. And then there are really good wedding photographers. And then there is Jay Emme. Not really a wedding photographer, just an incredibly talented and creative superhero (girl ninja) who makes magic happen with her trusty cameras (which she wears in holsters because she is totally bad ass)!

We first met Jay at a friend’s wedding, and had both fallen in love with her before realising she was there in an official role. Likewise, on our wedding day and leading up to it, Jay played a pivotal role in helping us to feel confident and excited. She was such an important part of the atmosphere and fun that some of our guests have actually taken a load of pictures of Jay taking a load of pictures of us, they just knew she was significant! How many wedding photographers can you say THAT about?!

We both hate getting our picture taken and come from rather shy families. Having been to lots of weddings with cringe-worthy guys in horrible waistcoats telling us to “do something crazy!” or “jump in the air!” part of us wanted to avoid the whole photos thing altogether. Then we met Jay and everything changed. She has the rare ability to instantly make people feel relaxed and somehow she captures the best version of you, the essence of your spirit in the moment. Our videographers (Papertwin Weddings, check them out!) could not contain their excitement at the prospect of working with her again and we soon saw why. Even our most timid family and friends came out of their shell and the results were stunning, not cheesy or cliché but powerful and special.

As a feminist bride, it has been particularly meaningful to see how Jay has portrayed me not as a demure pretty little thing staring passively at a satin shoe, but strong, empowered and in love as we embraced in a corn field against a dramatic sky, caught up in the romance and the breeze. Somehow she has captured the spirit of the two of us and that, to us, is priceless. If you want a modern and beautiful take on a (let’s face it) tired industry and are ready to feel like film stars for the day, then Jay is your woman. Thank you Jay for giving us something we will treasure forever, and also for being a phenomenal guest and human!”

The Old Library Custard Factory Wedding Birmingham

Rosie & Nick, Birmingham, UK

We knew as soon as we got engaged that we wanted Jay to capture our big day. She was utterly brilliant, snapping away without us even knowing. We wanted photos that summed up our day/relationship/family and Jay totally got that. Every time I look at our photos I grin from ear to ear. I would (and have ) recommended Jay to everyone I know.

Germany Feldberger Seenlandschaft Wedding, Jay Emme Photography

Cate & Jan, Feldberger Seenandschaft, Germany

We love the wedding pictures - thank you so much! I don't know if I've said it enough, but thank you so so much for everything you did on the wedding day for us - and the party before too! You helped us out so much from the very beginning, with the wedding dress corset trauma to helping us in the rain - all while taking the most amazing pictures! We couldn't have done it without you and we really appreciate it. And we had such fun with you as well - I'm sure people say this all the time, but I'm not a big fan of pictures of myself, and you may have taken the only profile shot of me I actually like - and it was all because we were so chilled and relaxed with you.

Farm Garden Marquee Wedding in York

Emma & Mark, Yorkshire, UK

Thank you for these gorgeous images! We are so pleased and excited to share them! We definitely want to order some prints but at the moment it is too hard to choose. I also wanted to say a huge huge thank you for your part in making our day so special. It was such a relief not to be scared of the camera. We just look so happy in the pictures! All our family and friends have had wonderful things to say about you. My Dad in particular thought you were fantastic. Thank you again.
