The Creative Team

We are Emmylie Cruz and Richard Stokes, a husband and wife team, parents of little Ellie, the love of our lives.

We met seven years ago and have been together ever since. We celebrated our marriage twice: in Ireland and Brazil. We started our wedding photography and videography business before we got married, and after we tied the knot, we continued photographing weddings with even more passion than before. We truly adore what we do!

We also love traveling and have been lucky enough that our photography & videography work has brought us to some of the most amazing places in the world: California, Morocco, Spain, Portugal, The Czech Republic, Brazil…

Inspiration

We take our inspiration from the world around us and its diversity:  people, nature, music. We are strongly inspired by love. Love in all its forms: Between partners, family members, friends.

As wedding photographers and videographers we are invited into one of the most special days people will ever experience. We get to capture in our photographs and films, truly beautiful and emotional moments that you and your families will treasure for years to come. Moments we will carry with us forever. 

It is rewarding to capture some of the most amazing wedding stories and to know our work will be part of a family’s records for generations. It’s a legacy that will outlive us. For that, we are so honoured and eternally grateful.

Love stories

We see every wedding day as-is: a beautiful love story yet to unfold in front of our lenses and we approach it with the eyes of natural photojournalists while creating stunning photographs and films.

For us, beauty exists even in the most ordinary moments in life. We observe events unfold naturally throughout the day and capture not only the details you might have spent hours dreaming of on Pinterest, but the love, the feelings, the laughter, the happy tears, the connection between people.

We strive to capture genuine moments and your true essence, translating the story of your day in gorgeous wedding photographs and films that will make you feel everything all over again.

 

Experience

As an Ireland Wedding Photographer and Videographer Team, we have been part of hundreds of weddings over the year and we have seen it all, well almost! Our experience and relaxed approach allow you to enjoy your day with family and friends while we capture it all naturally with an artistic touch. If you need gentle guidance here and there we will help!

We want to get to know you better in order to find out everything that is important to you. From getting ready until the first dance, we want you to have the very best experience! We won’t keep you two away from your party for very long. We can go for a short stroll around the garden. You will be able to relax and enjoy your day fully, knowing the memories of your wedding day are being beautifully captured.

Wedding Photographer and Videographer Reviews

Working as an Ireland wedding photographer and videographer team, we have been privileged to photograph and film some remarkable moments our couples shared over the years, providing them with beautiful and precious memories that will be treasured for generations. Here are some kind words they shared about their experience:

"We felt like we struck gold when we had Emmylie and Richie as our Ireland wedding photographer and videographer. They are the perfect duo and work extremely well together. From the moment they step into the house they put you at ease. Apart from being extremely friendly and warm their professionalism shines through. Emmylie is more like a wedding coordinator, organising everyone in order to get the best shot. You feel 100% confident on the day that they are getting all the shots and all the best shots! They have an amazing eye for light and detail not to mention capturing the most precious moments on the day. There is constant communication before, after and during the big day, whether it’s a phone call, whatsapp message or email. We are so happy with the photos and videos of the wedding day. It is such a hard decision to make; who to pick as your wedding photographer and videographer. Thankfully we were highly recommended Emmylie and Richie and we in turn highly recommend them to you.

"Having Emmylie & Richie as our wedding photographers was one of the best decisions we could have ever made. They were so professional and organised. They met with us and talked us through the day and also we had the joy of having them capture our second wedding in Morocco. On the day of our Irish wedding in Connemara, we barely noticed they were there floating in and out, capturing moments of the day, that we now look back upon and realise we missed so much! This is the importance of having a photographer capturing the moments that you as a couple may miss but such a joy to look back upon. They both brought a calm presence to both our days, even though they were constantly working, for our couple & bridal party shots they made us all feel so comfortable, we could really just relax and enjoy being in the moment. We know they went above and beyond what was expected of them for both our weddings especially in Morocco when they offered to take us out for a second day shoot to the stunning city of Chefchaouen. A magical experience and the photos are out of this world, it brings tears to my eyes when I look back upon them, always bringing me back to that magical feeling. We are just so happy and will highly recommend Emmylie & Richie to anyone looking for a photographer. The fact that we are both wedding photographers ourselves, says it all! As when you were already in the profession you have your own style and your own visions and I can 100% say they fulfilled both. We are both always happy to forward couples to them too, if we are not available on their dates. Thank you both so much and look forward to working with you in the future."

"I don’t have a favourite photo from our wedding day because every time I look through the beautiful album - hand-delivered with chocolate on Christmas Eve (!) - I pick a different one, such is Emmylie and Richie’s talent. They have an incredible eye for a magical, natural moment, but are also superstars at orchestrating the must-have formalities. Fastidious but not fussy is a powerful combination. From the second they arrived at Sinéad’s house, Emmylie was at work making everything and everyone comfortable but beautiful. And we really mean work! She even tidied the bedroom and styled it to showcase the dress, the accessories and the bride. That work ethic didn’t let up at any stage - from spotting the perfect light in City Hall to capturing dance moves at the Guinness Storehouse. One of the things engaged couples should remember is that they spend a lot of their wedding day with their photographers. Emmylie and Richie were an absolute joy to spend our special day with. So much so, that in the end, I wouldn’t have minded if the photos were only OK - but they were beyond anything I could have imagined. Their photos showcase the vibe and atmosphere of our big-but-modern Dublin City party wedding, while also keeping it fashion forward and a little editorial. Book them!"

"10/10! What an amazing decision to ask Wonder & Magic to photograph our Wedding Day! Everyone who sees our photos says they are the best they have seen and it easy to understand why. They are simply amazing photos presented beautifully. Emmylie is a fantastic photographer with so much experience. Her communication from start to finish is brilliant, she is so friendly and beams positive energy. I am not someone who usually likes to be photographed but she worked her magic and brought out the best. My wife was so comfortable and calm knowing we were in the right hands to have the all the feelings and happiness captured. The final products are something the whole family cherishes dearly. Thank you for making such a special day even more special!"
