Award Winning Whinstone View Wedding Photographer

I founded Emma Marie Photography in 2010, and since then, I’ve been offering portrait and wedding photography services in Guisborough and throughout North Yorkshire, including at Whinstone View. My love for photography began in my teens and grew stronger after the birth of my daughter, Hannah, in 2007. To enhance my skills, I even studied Photoshop in college. Today, I treasure the moments I capture for my three daughters and clients. My eldest, Hannah, now 15, has been assisting me in wedding shoots since April 2022 and is showing great promise as a photographer.
