Our commitment to you:

Everything you need to know about what matters the most

We know planning a wedding is not easy. You might feel overwhelmed with all the information out there. If you are an engaged couple who value real moments and human connection and want your day to be captured naturally with an artistic touch, we can help!

You might be camera shy and that’s ok. Most of our couples say the same. Our style is focused on natural emotion, beautiful light and gentle guidance for stunning portraits. You will feel completely at ease to fully enjoy the day while we seamlessly document it for you. We will provide you timeless, elegant and emotional wedding photography and videography, that you and your families will love for generations.

Before your wedding

Before you book we can schedule a relaxed skype/whatsapp call for you to get to know us and for us to get to know all you’re dreaming up for your day.

If you decide to book we will have another meeting or call a few weeks before the wedding date, to go through the timeline and confirm all the details for the day. We will make some decisions, like location for photos and can work together on a list of family members you would like photos with, so that everything runs without stress on the day. You can also email, text or call us at any stage if you have any questions or would like any suggestions. 

An engagement session will be scheduled sometime before the wedding, if included in your package.  This without a doubt, benefits both – us and you – the wedding couple. Why? This session allows us to get to know each other even better and get you comfortable in front of my camera so on your wedding day you know what to expect and everything  will  flow  with ease.  It’s  also  an opportunity to take the time just for the two of you, to get some beautiful, romantic shots and most importantly to celebrate this amazing time in your lives and the love between you.

On your wedding day

Coverage begins 2 hours before the ceremony. If you opted for second photographer/videographer he/she will be with your partner in the morning.

Initially we will photograph all the details – shoes, rings, flowers etc – and then while you are getting ready, we will move between completely documentary photography with an artistic touch to very occasional and gentle direction to get the best angles and light, when needed. 

At the wedding ceremony our approach is totally unobtrusive. We respect the natural flow of the wedding and we are usually out of sight, so that you and your guests so that you can enjoy all the moments.

Next, based on our experience we suggest that we do the family photos and bridal party photos. We will decide on location for these photographs prior the wedding. During these sessions we will ensure everyone is looking and feeling their best, aiming for natural interaction.

We can then take some time to get pictures of the two of you, while you talk about all the lovely & beautiful things that happened during the ceremony, enjoying each other’s company. Or you can go straight to reception to enjoy time with your family and guests. There’s usually a 20min window until your guests are ready to welcome you for dinner, so we can do some couples portraits then. Whatever you choose is fine by us! 

Depending on the coverage chosen, we will stay until you sit for dinner or until after the first few dances. No matter what coverage you choose, we will capture naturally all the fun & laughter. You, family & friends having a great time, so that you can relieve it all when you look at your wedding photos.

After your wedding

Shortly after your wedding we will send you a beautiful online highlight slideshow with music. You will also receive a link with the photos used in the slideshow, so that you can download and share with friends and family.

Then we individually edit every single image to the highest standard. No photoshop is involved at this stage but this process takes quite some time and we do not rush it. These are the photos you will treasure forever after all! 

When photos are finished you will receive a link to your private online gallery. All images are in high resolution & with no watermarks. 

If you book wedding videography, the link to your wedding trailer will be sent to you up to 4 weeks after your wedding. Your wedding film will take longer to edit. Please allow 4 to 6 months as this process is labour intensive.

Your personalised memory box with will be ready for collection around 8 weeks from your wedding date. Please allow 12 weeks if during the wedding season. 

Once you decided about your album collection and we receive your choice of photos we will put together a beautiful layout to show you and will get your approval before send it for printing. Delivery of your memory box and album can also be arranged. 

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. They have an amazing eye for light and detail not to mention capturing the most precious moments on the 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.

We couldn't have been happier having Emmylie and Richie document our special day. From the minute they arrived they put us completely at ease. We wanted relaxed shots which they delivered in abundance and our video was incredible as neither of us knew what the other had said until we got it. With the after wedding blues it was the most amazing pick me up and is something we will cherish forever. We couldn't recommend them highly enough and if we could do it all again having Wonder & Magic would be a no brainer for us.
