Hi! I’m Emma Garlick and I’m a documentary wedding photographer from the beautiful village of Denby Dale, West Yorkshire, but I shoot weddings all over the UK.
I live with my amazing husband, we have 5 gorgeous children between us but only two now live at home. The others are grown up and are off making their own adventures. We also have 3 Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Ruby Roxy and Rio. I couldn’t live without my friends and family, my dogs and my camera and when I'm not working, nothing makes me happier than spending time with my family and friends, socialising or walking with my doggies.
My love of people is what inspired me to become a wedding photographer. I’ve been a photographer for many years and I absolutely love it. Im a people watcher, I just love to watch people! So the best thing about doing what I do is that I get to observe people, capturing those moments that may otherwise be gone for good whilst having lots of fun and meeting new people.
My wedding photography style is fun and relaxed. I capture all the special and wonderful moments, which lets you get on with having a fabulous day.
I love it all but for me, one of the bits I love the most about a wedding day is the portrait session. It’s a chance for you to have a little breather and for me to be creative. We move away from all your guests, I then lead the way with some gentle directions and aim to get you laughing and looking at each other without putting you in awkward poses that you may find uncomfortable and that just don't represent who you are.
If your wedding is all about you and your new husband/wife having a wonderful time , you don’t care too much about all the formalities and you just want to have an amazing time with your favourite people whilst your photographer discreetly captures all the special moments of your beautiful day then please get in touch, I would love to chat about your wedding!

WHAT PEOPLE SAY...
"Emma was recommended to me to do our wedding photography by the owner of the boutique where i got my dress. I got in touch and arranged an appointment which was at Emma’s house. As soon as we arrived (I went with my mum) I knew I wanted Emma to be our photographer - super friendly, professional and made me feel like our big day was important to her, not ‘just another wedding’. I filled in a short brief about the kind of shots that would be important to us along with key information about the day and from thereon in Emma took control. She wasn’t afraid to tell people on the day how and where she wanted them and made sure she captured everything we wanted - without being ‘bossy’, and she brought a second photographer who captured my husband with his groomsmen getting ready and waiting at the church. Lots of our guests commented on how great they both were, and I love the finished photos, the quality is amazing. I couldn’t recommend Emma highly enough for any special occasion - she’ll make it even more special - love her!"
