“Human connection: I worked with Emily once, once is enough to know so much about a person. I’ve always learnt to judge people not how they treat me but how they treat others around me.
Emily, your photographic eye to capture the most humane photographs from a wedding is beyond amazing but to know when to put the camera down and be there for the subject you are photographing is what separates you from the rest, whether it’s during the morning and immerse yourself in the clients culture or grabbing a chair next to the mother of the bride for five seconds to comfort her.”
