About Emerson Photography

Emerson Photography, based between Sunderland, Durham, Newcastle and Houghton-Le-Spring and looking after the wedding and portrait photography needs of the whole of the North East.  Plenty of my clients live all over the UK too - I'm always willing to travel.  I also specialise in Dog Lifestyle Portraiture - this is high end canine portraiture for clients who love their dogs!

I'm Jamie Emerson, North East wedding photographer, and I've been pouring my heart and soul into Emerson Photography for many years.  In 2001 I ruined a perfectly good hobby by packing myself off to college to study photography.  It was a big part of my life anyway and had been for many years.  I just wanted to make the financial and time commitment and 'do it properly'!  I didn't just want the technical skills you can pick up doing a night class or a HND - I wanted to immerse myself in the subject's history, to come away with a thorough knowledge of what has gone before, and an inkling of what might come after.

The college course led to university where I studied photography in the art school and graduated with my BA Hons degree.  By the end of 2005, I was finally in business, after completing various business start up courses.  Bits and pieces of commercial work helped pay the bills but after shooting a few weddings for friends, I found my photographic home.  I loved shooting weddings, clients seemed overjoyed by the results.

And I still absolutely love my job.  I'm also still learning - every single wedding presents its own challenges, new technologies bring new possibilities and perhaps most importantly, meeting new clients keeps my customer service where it should be.
