“Show Emma a piece of work and she will know within seconds how you could make it even better.
She is an excellent storyteller, knows everything about gear and is a one of a kind teacher. I know I succeeded with a wedding film when she has nothing more to add.”
Photographer & Videographer
“Emma is one of Europe’s top female wedding filmmakers and helping to level the playing field in a predominantly male industry. She has twenty years BBC filmmaking under her belt and ten years shooting weddings which, quite frankly, is like being an Olympic athlete of video.”
“Thanks to Emma, I went from dreaming of being a videographer, to knowing exactly how to use my camera and take professional footage in one day. Since then I have invested in all my training and development with Emma and I can honestly say she really knows her stuff and it’s been the best value for money in myself and my business.”
