I’m imparting knowledge, expertise and insight from three decades of videography and storytelling and ten years of wedding filmmaking as Creative Director of Story Of Your Day.


“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.”

“Emma is an icon to touch. I have seized every opportunity to take advantage of any mentoring she offers and my business now proudly and confidently offers videography alongside photography. And while nothing compares to a happy client, I am still most proud when Emma approves of my work.”

-Natascha, Belle & Sass

“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.”

-Isa, Belle & Sass

To be honest I only thought I could learn small golden nuggets from Emma when in fact I was blown away with the amount of insight she has shared with me and I have learnt so much more than I could have imagined. If anyone is sitting on the fence, they need to take the leap now!
