Happy Otter Photography

Wedding photographer in York covering Yorkshire and the Northern England


G+D - Winter Gardens, Preston Hall

Our photos are absolutely PERFECT. Emma has managed to create exactly what we wanted and so much more. Cannot recommend her enough! We are not posy people at all and didn't need to be, we were made to feel at ease and it felt like a friend was there with us. We would both like to thank you very very much for capturing our day exactly as it was: colourful, loving and fun! Thank you again so so much we are thrilled

If I could give Emma more than five stars I would- everything about our experience was perfect. From the initial meeting and discussing ideas, to the lead up to the day and the day itself was brilliant thanks to Emmas professional yet relaxed manner.

Both myself and David hate having our picture taking but Emma took all of the stress out of it and made them enjoyable. All our guests agreed and commented on how lovely it was to have a photographer who captured special moments rather than having staged pictures.

We were so excited to get our pictures back and they were better than we could have imagined! The way we received them was so thoughtful and the pictures were amazing. All the important moments were perfectly captured and we got to see parts of the day we missed.

We couldn't have been happier with the service and photos we received from Emma.

Thank you!

L+A - Crook Hall, Durham

Absolutely amazing choice for a wedding photographer! Emma's relaxed and professional style creates the most gorgeous shots for your big day. She concentrates on capturing moments rather than framing shots, helping the day go smoothly and providing wonderful memories. Excellent service, good price, and quality product. I highly recommend her!

R+J - Lumley Castle, County Durham

On the day she worked tirelessly, it was obvious a lot of planning had gone on because she was right there for every important moment. When we got the photos we were over the moon! We had the necessary 'formal' shots we had asked for, and the rest were an amazing picture story of the whole day. Years from now that photo album will come out and take us right back to that day, and that is exactly what we wanted.

We can't thank Emma enough. Everyone who's seen the photos has praised her work so from us she comes highly recommended.

We've just received our photos from Emma and we are absolutely over the moon! She has perfectly captured so many special moments and I honestly felt like I was reliving the day as we went through them all!

So many of our guests had commented on how refreshing it was for a photographer to blend in and capture all the little moments, rather than jumping in front of guests and dictating the day.

We honestly couldn't be happier with the results of your hard work - thank you so much!

C+P - Newcastle, North East

We've just had our wedding photo's back from Emma and they are absolutely fantastic!


L+N - Morpeth, North East​

Thank you! They're wonderful. When we shared the sneak peak photos that were on facebook everyone said they're beautiful. Emma was brilliant. Although we did do a few posing it was all very relaxed without anyone waiting around for hours while photos were taken. She just blended into the day perfectly.

M+M - Walworth Castle, County Durham

Truly amazing from start to finish! Emma just blended in all day and captured the things that we had missed... now our photographs are here and I'm so glad that we picked this very talented lady to be part of our special day.
