Abi & Dan, 2021

From the minute we met Emma at our Engagement shoot, we knew we’d made the right choice. Both my husband and I are not fans of having our photos taken but she made us feel totally at ease with her professional yet chilled approach. We really felt like she was listening to what we wanted and understood where we were coming from. This continued right through to the wedding. Emma has a wonderful ability to be present, capturing all the little moments whilst also managing to  be in no way a distraction to us or our guests. Our main request was to capture the natural moments of the day, especially the ones we would miss, and she totally delivered! We have the most beautiful selection of photos that fully showcase the day, how our guests felt and what it all meant to us. We couldn’t recommend her more highly!

Martha & Anthony, 2021

We found Emma on River Cottage’s website when we were looking for wedding suppliers and fell in love with the candid nature of her photos she had taken at another wedding there. It was great to know she had done other weddings at the venue, which meant she would already know the best places to get great shots, and we wanted our wedding photos to be as unstaged as possible – which is exactly what we ended up with.

We had a few phone-calls with Emma and got on really well, which filled us with confidence for the day. When we met the morning of the wedding, it was so lovely to put a face to the name and voice, and we barely noticed Emma taking photos throughout the day. When we received the full album, there were so many times when we both said “I didn’t know she took a picture here!” because she was moving around completely unnoticed and really captured the joy and emotion on people’s faces.

When we went up onto the hill to take photographs of just the two of us, Emma made us feel really comfortable and the end result was wonderful.

We would absolutely recommend Emma to anyone getting married – she has an innate talent for capturing moments in such an intimate way and the style of her photography is just so beautiful. We often look back through our photos, they mean the world to us.

Hannah & Lawrence, 2019

The photography and videography by Emma & Stuart on our wedding day were exactly what we were hoping for. They are both so at ease outdoors and captured all the most special moments of the day. Emma knew the sort of imagery I was looking for and she managed to create the warm tones and summery feel we loved so much.

Jade & Richard, 2019

“I first met Emma Stoner at a quaint little wedding fair and fell in love with her candid and relaxed photography style. We then met in a little cafe in Totnes to discuss our wedding plans and came away thinking she was slightly bonkers – we knew at that moment we didn’t want anyone else to be our wedding photographer. Emma was just so personable and made us feel immediately relaxed. She caught the most amazing photos of our day without getting in the way or making things feel staged. We loved her so much we asked her to arrange a maternity photoshoot when we found out we were expecting our first baby.”

Janey & Adam 2018

Has to be said; Emma has a certain power as a photographer which means, all biases aside, she transcends the standard (dare I say boring?) Wedding photographers out there. She is more than a wedding photographer- she captures every little smile, every grin, every tear and even the tiny things you often miss that make you tear up – at mine and Adam’s Handfasting she captured the beauty in every lost shoe, a wooden sword, an ashtray, a stray flower, a nervous laugh or even a bit of stress when something goes a little stray from the plan. In short, she will flit around like a dragonfly, disappearing and re-emerging, catching every sparkle you may want. That is the power of Emma Stoner – she just gets it. Her photography is special. Schedule a meet with her and if you’re not bowled over by her beguilingly easy-going personality – take a look at her portfolio and try not to smile.

Amy & Stephen, 2018

Emma gave us a great deal on our wedding package after meeting her at the Bridwell Park Wedding Fair. We loved her photo albums and boxes she had on display and instantly clicked with her. Emma worked so hard throughout our wedding day, ensuring she captured absolutely everything and everyone. Emma ended up staying at our wedding later than we had booked in with her, just because she wanted to continue to capture the amazing sunset evening we were having. Emma kept in touch with us almost on a weekly basis after the wedding, sending us previews even two days after the wedding. Needless to say, we absolutely LOVE our wedding photos and so does everyone else. Would highly recommend to other couples!

Trish & Tony, 2018

Emma was fabulous from start to finish; from the first time we spoke, to our Engagement shoot at a magical spot on Dartmoor, right up to our first dance on our big day.
We had every confidence that she would be able to achieve what we had in mind for our wedding photographs, and we were by no means disappointed.
Her attention to detail, passion for photography, truly likeable personality and ability to make you feel at ease when faced with the camera are just a few of the deserved reasons why we have no hesitation in voting for her at these awards, or indeed recommending to any of our friends and family who may choose the beautiful county of Devon as their wedding venue.

Fiona & John, 2018

Emma was professional, friendly, hard-working with a super positive attitude. We loved her photos which captured the day and all those moments. We were particularly pleased she insisted on throwing confetti in the snow!! The presentation of the USB sticks and 30 prints in the box was gorgeous and Emma definitely represents good value for money. We could share a link and all our photos with friends and family.

Lupe & Doug, 2018

My husband and I are both involved in photography and film. We knew what we wanted when it came to finding a photographer. Someone who had their own distinct style, could really tell a story with their photos, and whose price was reasonable. Emma was all of those things and more. She was incredibly easy to work with and really made us feel comfortable. She is worth every penny and some.

Deb & Dave, 2018

Emma Stoner was an excellent choice for our wedding in Dartington and reception at Kingston Estate. Emma took some great photographs in this beautiful venue capturing myself, my wife and my guests in natural poses throughout the day. We are both really pleased with our photographs. Thank you Emma.

Gaia & Calum 2017

Emma was a godsend for our wedding. We were approached by Emma after we had posted on a forum to get married at Glastonbury Festival. At first, we thought we would take our wedding attire to Glastonbury to have photos in, but Emma went above and beyond to find people run a handfasting ceremony for us. We were fortunate enough to have Emma come round with us across the festival after the ceremony and capture the best moments in our life. We never expected such a service from a photographer, but there is a clear indication that Emma truly cares and is passionate about what she does. We cannot thank her enough.

Susie & Keith, 2017

Emma is a fantastic photographer who tells a perfect story with her photos. Her style really suited our natural, vintage wedding in my home county of Devon. She stayed for the whole day and took amazing shots from the pre-wedding, wedding ceremony, party and evening celebrations. She was able to capture some wonderful moments which we will treasure forever. We can’t thank or recommend Emma Stoner Devon Wedding Photographer enough!

Yomi & Nick 2017

Emma is an absolutely amazing and talented photographer as well as a great person. Nick and I are not the most amazing people in front of the camera but she made the whole experience so natural and easy, the pictures speak a thousand voices at to how at ease she made us feel. It was of course one of the best days of ours lives and thanks to Emma’s amazing talent we can cherish that forever. Thank you Emma!!

Nicola & Mike, 2016

Emma is brilliant to be around and she worked extremely hard to ensure that she got the right shots. Even mike who hates having his photo taken felt at ease and managed to break into a smile!
The photos were exactly what we had hoped for and Emma had worked extremely hard to capture every moment of the day.

Lara and Atilla, 2016

These are so so so gorgeous! Thank you so much! They are better than I could have imagined! I love them. You really captured the day! Amazing!!!

Jenny and Dave, 2016

“We were so pleased we picked Emma to photograph our wedding, her photos are stunning and it’s great to have it all captured so beautifully. Emma was amazing at photographing all the little moments that make up the big day. She took a lot of time talking to us about our wedding and the style of photos we love. On the day she blended so well into our wedding party that she got fantastic shots of our friends and family relaxed and having fun – just how we want to remember our wedding!”

Katie and Finn, 2016

I cannot recommend Emma enough!

She photographed our wedding and was just brilliant from our first enquiry to the incredible catalogue of photos we now have capturing the day. We’ve had a lot of superlatives about Emma’s photos from so many people – ‘best wedding photos ever’ comments. Emma has a really special talent for capturing individual magic moments and as well as the overall feeling and atmosphere. She is so easy, flexible, enthusiastic and professional she really makes the whole experience a pleasure and breeze.

If you are looking for a photographer to capture a special occasion – look no further.

Thanks Emma!

Louise and George, 2016

Thank you, they are beautiful photos! We love them. You’ve done an amazing job. Will have to look at them a few more times to take it all in. They capture the day beautifully.

Anna and Keith, 2016

Wow these photos are all absolutely amazing, we have just worked our way through all of them & love the story they tell. You have captured all the love & laughter so perfectly.

Dan and Jessica Stephens, 2015

Hi Emma, Jess and I wanted to say a massive thank you for all of your hard work on the the day. These preview shots are absolutely amazing and we can’t wait to see the rest. We have been nothing but very impressed by your service throughout and would recommend you to anybody. Having the trust to just “let you get on with it” is testament to your professionalism and skill with the results speaking for themselves. For anyone looking for the perfect mix of formal and candid shots, Emma is the person to hire. We wish you all the best and success in the future.

Amy & Chris, 2015

Emma is a star. My wife Amy and I put our hearts and souls into our wedding, and capturing all the love, smiles, emotion and fun was Emma – who from our first Skype call (we started planning our Germany) was passionate, reassuringly understanding of the look and feel of the day, and always professional. Our day was amazing, and so are the beautiful images that Emma skilfully and carefully took– meaning we could relax safe in the knowledge that we’d have not only the main parts, but all the little touches that made the day so special, to enjoy forever. We’re both over the moon with our photos and the service etc. Thank you so much Emma 😀

Stephanie and Steve, 2015

Emma was great. Her photos are beautiful and completely capture the feel of the day. We spent weeks researching photographers before we came across Emma and are so happy with our decision. Of course, it helped knowing she was asked to photograph Glastonbury festival, one of our favourite places, so we knew we had found someone like-minded. I think the photos speak for themselves.

Tamsin and Alex, 2015

We liked Emma straight away, she put us at ease from the beginning by chatting with us on Skype. On the day she was incredibly hard-working and good to be around. The photos are stunning and I know we’ll treasure them.

Sophia and Oli, 2014

Emma is an incredibly talented photographer who truly captured the joy of our wedding day. We were really keen to find a photographer who would not interrupt the flow of the day; Emma’s reportage style and eye for a shot in the moment, combined with her ability to work unobtrusively, has resulted in a selection of photos that really tell the story of the event but that also allowed us to enjoy the experience. Emma is a lovely person to have around and I am sure this is part of the reason she managed to get amazing shots of our friends and family, even those who hate having their photo taken.

Karis and Dominic, 2014

Emma was just great. Her informal style was just what we wanted and was perfect for us and the theme of the wedding. We hate staged photos so we had on a couple of posed group shots and the rest where all in the moment. Take Emma through what you want exactly and she takes the time to listen and then she can make sure she gets all the shots and people you want in a natural way.

Stephen and Cherry, 2014

“Emma was great – prompt, professional, friendly, and creative. We commissioned Emma for a pre-wedding photo-shoot around London. She offered great services and products before, during, and after the photo-shoot. The photos turned out wonderfully and on-time; we also had great fun through the whole process. We highly recommend her service and would have hired her for our wedding day had our wedding been in England.”

“We highly recommend booking Emma for your special day. She was very professional, unobtrusive and captured some brilliant shots of our day. We are so pleased with the outcome, we couldn’t have wished for any better!”

“The photos are fantastic – exactly the kind of thing we had hoped for, and they capture the day(s) beautifully. Awesome job. You’ve caught so many lovely moments, and they’re stunning.”

Verity and Martin, 2014

Thankyou so much for the lovely photos which have helped create such a special record of our lovely day. All of our guests commented on how relaxed and natural your approach was. You really helped to add to the day. We wish you every success in the future.

Hannah and Dean, 2014

“Overall we couldn’t have been happier – Emma is very easy to talk to and discuss ideas with – we had a Skype chat straight away and then a meeting at the venue prior to the wedding which made life much less stressful for us. Everyone at our wedding commented on how professional, but easy going Emma was, and also how busy – popping up at all the right moments! We couldn’t be happier with the results. Thanks Emma!”

Lucy and Chris, 2013

“Emma – they are amazing! And to think that these are just the preview, we are very, very happy with them! Thankyou so much! You have managed to capture all the special bits, and there is so much emotion in some of them… We love them!”

Jo and Paul, 2013

“The photos are absolutely fantastic! We are both delighted and they bring back such happy memories of the day. Thanks so much, do pass on out thank to Gareth too, he was great. We have so many favourites!”

Anna and Roy, 2013

“Thanks for your e-mail. We did receive the DVD, I meant to e-mail you sooner but I’ve spent all my time going through the photo’s, putting them up online, printing them out and framing them. They look really great. Roy and I are really pleased with them. Everyone loved the non-posed/action shot style of them. Thank you!”

Fran and Chris, 2013

“We booked Emma after she shot my sister’s wedding in 2012 and were really impressed at the time with her ability to capture natural, ‘people-moment’ shots. She definitely did this again at our wedding and we’re delighted with our photos. Emma’s also really good at ‘blending’ into the background at the wedding, which I think is one of the reasons she captures such natural shots. We’re so pleased with all of our pictures, and Emma delivered them in good time after the wedding too. Many thanks Emma!”

Lou and Colin, 2013

“The photos are brilliant, we love them so much. You are very clever at capturing the spirit of the day”

Erika and Ash, 2013

“The pictures are brilliant. Thankyou again”

Sarah and Clive, 2013

“Just to say we really love the preview photos – they are great! Thanks for taking such lovely photos.”

Christine and Joe, 2012

“Emma was fab! Her remit was to capture the emotion of the day and she certainly did that. We chose her because we saw her listed on The Natural Wedding Company and I liked the way she managed to capture people’s candid expressions. She was a joy to work with on the day, very cheerful and she put us all at ease. I think this comes across in the pictures. She was willing to go above and beyond to capture the pictures we wanted, for instance she stayed overnight with a view to taking pictures the next day if we were going to the beach – but in the end there was too much packing to do!”

Helen and Matt, 2012

“We booked Emma to photograph our wedding at Coombe Farm in September 2012. We really liked her style from her website and when we met we knew that Emma would fit in with our friends which was important for the festival feel we wanted. Emma began by spending valuable time with us to understand what we were aspiring to on our special day and she really took the time to construct the right balance for the day. She and her assistant Alice arrived early and were very unobtrusive as they circulated around all of the morning activities across the farm, capturing a host of great moments that we would never have known about otherwise. She is clearly passionate about her work and as well as capturing the special moments in a very candid way, which was important to us, she was continually thinking about what she could do that would give us that perfect memory. She used the landscape to give us fantastic results and went way beyond what we expected throughout the whole day, including staying very late to capture the post party firepit gathering. We received the initial photo selection soon afterwards and were so pleased with the results, they really reflected how we felt about the day. The full set had some unique shots of our family and friends, we loved how they weren’t like a standard set of photographs. For a final magic touch, Emma had taken some recordings through the day and put together an online album to music with sound from the day woven in. This included photos that hadn’t made the original set so it gave yet another view of the day and gave it a story feel not just moments in time. We would recommend Emma to anyone who is looking for someone to really capture the feel of their special day.”

Liliana and Kevin, 2012

“Highly recommended, Emma was great to work with and captured our day well. Professional, creative and a wonderful eye for details, bringing her own unique style to her photography. Thank you for capturing our day and adding that special quality to our wedding photos.”

Jenny and Peter, 2011

Brilliant – we could not recommend Emma highly enough! Her photos were excellent and she captured everything we wanted – particularly photos of our family and friends throughout the day. She was great at blending in with our guests and most people did not notice her taking photos of them. She was enthusiastic and creative and we like her ethical focus. We really enjoyed working with Emma.

Tess and David, 2011

“Emma really made our day for us – we didn’t have to worry about a thing and we had some beautiful shots to look back on – we were delighted with both the reportage and the formal photographs. Her eye for detail meant that many hidden little moments were captured forever, from a dancing baby to confetti blowing on the wind. Heartily recommended!”

Emma and Tom, 2011

“Just to let you know we received the DVD last Friday and have really enjoyed showing them to friends and family. We LOVED your natural style of pictures and are so pleased with the work. We’ll treasure them.”
