Looking for a 'Photographer near me'? Welcome to:

Emma-Louise Walton, Photographer

UK Portrait / Events / Wedding Photographer

If you're looking for a 'Photographer Near Me...' I'm based in Burnham, South Buckinghamshire but also have studio space in Almondsbury, Bristol.  This means I can easily cover most of the South West of England.

I have a portable studio to visit you at home as well as extensive location shoot experience.

Portrait and family photoshoots are available at both studios, although Burnham is my main studio.

I have been the photographer at events all over the country, both corporate and personal.  I love helping people to record the memories of special events.

It's also been my pleasure to photograph wedding couples celebrating their special day whether near me in the UK, or the Caribbean!

A Little Bit About Me

Hi, I'm Emma-Louise and welcome to my website.

I studied photography at university before working with Hasbro UK Limited as their product photographer.

However I have always had a passion for working with people and in 2010 I went to work for Venture Studios in Eton as a portrait photographer.

Finding how much I did enjoy it I made the decision to make the scary decision to be my own boss and I've never looked back!

My husband and I also run our own Ballroom and Latin American dance school in Burnham.  This is also where my main photography studio is based.

I have photographed intimate weddings up to 100s of wedding guests; family gatherings to celebrity 60ths; and product photography for both local businesses and multi-nationals.

Feel free to contact me if you'd like to discuss my availability or a particular project.

Client Testimonials

Bride and Groom Rural Field - Wedding Photographer“Emma-Louise Walton Photography was the perfect choice for our wedding. Emma-Lou was professional, relaxed and gave a personalised service that fitted the style we wanted for our wedding day.

Her style of photography was fun. She took all the formal shots as well as great casual and personal close-ups that captured the day brilliantly.

Thank you Emma for creating great visual and long-lasting reminders of our wedding day. The photos were totally fantastic – you are brilliant!

Your style is exactly what I had hoped for. It's relaxed and fun but still got captured all the important moments perfectly!

Thank you so much!”

Amy and Darren, London

Mother and Two Sons embracing - Family Portrait Photographer“Emma, thank you so much for the photo shoot it was amazing. We had three and a half hours of fun and are very impressed with the photos. There were lots of tears of joy trying to work out which of the photos we would like blown up.

I will strongly recommend you to anyone who’s looking for a fantastic photographer.

Thank you from Lisa, Paul and family.”

Lisa S, Portishead.

Young Adults laughing on a garden bench - Family Portrait Photographer“When I asked Emma-Louise to take some photos of my almost grown up children; I never imagined that she would capture their sense of fun and personalities so perfectly.

Within minutes she had made them feel so relaxed and enjoying the whole experience. They lost any self-consciousness that they might have felt.

The result was some fantastic photos that I will cherish forever!!

Thank you so much!”

Jenny and Boyd, Bristol

Bride and Groom in a stone archway - Wedding Photographer“Emma and (second photographer) Rob provided us with an outstanding service for our wedding day photos. We spent time with them prior to the big day and talked about requirements; they visited the venue to look for those extra special locations for us to have photos taken.

The big day arrived and they were superb! Immediately they built up relationships with our families and close friends and the snapping began.

At times we didn’t know they were there (fantastic reportage shots!) But equally they guided and managed us and our guests through all the photos we had requested. They were a joy to have around and share our special day.

When we met up after our honeymoon we could not have been more pleased with the photos (I cried!). The only trouble was choosing for our album as there were SO many good shots.

Once we had made our selection and the album arrived we were truly delighted – the quality and layout were second to none.  We could honestly not recommend Emma and Rob enough!”

Tim and Lella, Almondsbury, Bristol.

Harmonica Player on Theatre stage - Event and Music Artist Headshot Portfolio Photographer“As a professional harmonica player of many years standing, I recently had the best and most creative photographs I have ever had taken.

These were done by Emma-Louise during a live show and are now used as my display photos. They feature in many top line UK theatres and on major cruise ships.

Emma-Louise is in the same league as Angus McBean and the photographers from the old landseer studios in London during the golden age.

She is a modern photographer of artistry and quality.”

Johnny S, Sheffield

Blonde Female Singer Colourful Close Up - Event, Theatre & Music Artist Headshot Portfolio Photographer

“I’m not really too keen on having my photo taken. However I had to have a photo shoot done for the purpose of a University project.

Emma made me feel really comfortable and at ease, I had such a fun day and the pictures turned out amazingly.

Emma puts a very creative edge in her work, the finished product stands out, she certainly knows her stuff!”

Michelle H, Langley

Smiling Groom placing ring on ecstatic bride - Wedding Photographer

“Emma-Louise really captured the essence of our day. From the outset, she spent time with us to make sure she knew exactly what style and kind of photographs we wanted.

We have photos that really reflect our day and all the little moments that really mattered! She seems to have captured the best side of everyone!

We had a wide variety of pictures to choose from; Emma-Louise worked with us to ensure our album reflected what we really wanted.

Emma-Louise was highly professional and not in any way intrusive – we would highly recommend you use her for your special day!”

Nicola and Richard, Maidenhead

Couple laughing against a tree - Portrait & Family Photographer“Emma, I cannot express how delighted I am with the results of your work. The photographs alone were very pleasing but the finished products are superb. From the framed black and white portraits to the truly beautiful wraparound canvasses.

As you could probably tell from my rather emotional reaction when you brought them over today; it has been from start to finish a fantastic experience.

The thought of going to a studio and being photographed by someone we didn’t know had been preventing me from having a family photo session. With Joe going off to university and Alex having her 18th birthday; it was not possible to ignore the fact that if we didn’t take the plunge now, we never would.  

From the start you made the whole day easy going and by the end very relaxed and even enjoyable. We had great fun and I think that shows through to the finished photos.

By putting the photographs together on the CD slideshow; then spending a considerable time going through them with us to choose and select the ones we wanted to have made up you managed the whole project to perfection.

Whilst not being at all pressured you talked through all the photos and gave the best professional advice.  

Now with these wonderful family pictures are in my house, I am just really pleased that we decided to take the plunge and ever grateful to you for agreeing to take it on.

On behalf of us all, many thanks."

Dee, Dave and family, Amersham.

Smiling Elderly father and daughter - Event & Portrait Photographer“When I wanted someone to take family and friend photographs at my Fathers surprise’ 80th birthday party it never crossed my mind to ask anyone except Emma-Lou.

Having used her before, I knew that she was a very talented photographer, and yet again she did us proud! She took some lovely photos, both formal ones of the family group, and lots of informal ones of the party.

She captured some very special moments and produced a permanent reminder for us to look back upon.

Once again, thank you so much.”

Jenny, Bristol

Close up of baby looking at the camera - Baby Newborn and First Year Photographer“I want to thank you Emma-Lou for all the wonderful photos you did for me of my beautiful daughter. Your work is truly amazing.

Now that I have another daughter, I will definitely be calling on your services again in the near future.

Love the work.

Thank you very much.”

Miranda C, Cippenham

Smiling Teenage Girl in black and white - Family & Portrait Headshot Photographer“The girls were very excited at the thought of a photo shoot – I don’t enjoy having my photo taken and so was less keen! Emma managed to make the whole experience fun for all of us.

She was very professional and open to ideas from the girls about what they wanted (the photos of them jumping in the air are some of my favourites!)

Emma took a lot of photos and so we had a good choice of images.

She suggested different ways in which we could present the images and again was very keen to ensure we were happy with the results. I am delighted with the photos we have.”

Sally S, Windsor.

Three kids hugging smiling and laughing - Family & Portrait Photographer“I used Emma to take our family portrait photos after she was recommended by a friend of mine and I’m so glad I did.

The whole experience was amazing and my children thoroughly enjoyed themselves.  Emma made us all feel so relaxed and comfortable the whole time she was at our house.

The photographs are amazing and great value for the quality and expertise you get from Emma.

I would definitely recommend her and we will use her services again when required.”

Sarah and family, Portishead.

“Emma was invited to Silchester Manor School to photograph the children having fun on their last day at school.

The school was about to close and the children wanted to say goodbye with a fun-filled day.

The photos Emma took perfectly captured the day. The photo collage that each child received will surely make a souvenir worth treasuring.

Her patience, dedication and talent definitely come through in each photo.

Thank you!”
