I Shall Take The Heart Photography

Mainyard Studios, 280 Mare Street, London E8 1HE



Hey there, I’m Emma, the grin-toting photographer behind I Shall Take the Heart. I’ve been shooting all kinds of creative, unexpected and beautiful weddings since 2015.

To me, beauty isn’t about perfection. It’s a stolen glance or a wild dance, it’s about the real, authentic connections between you and your loved ones. That, is beauty.

You want a photographer who shares your values and fits in with your vibe. Someone who’ll blend in, with unobtrusive photography that reflects how the day really felt. Not forgetting some kick-ass portraits capturing you in your loved-up wedding-day glory. And making all this feel like the easiest, most relaxed part of your day.

A former journalist, music photographer and globe-trotter (pre-pandemic!), I’ve lived all around the world. My inspiration comes from art, architecture and the places I’ve been. I have a keen eye for those storytelling moments that make your wedding day truly unforgettable and unique. 

When I’m not behind a camera, you can usually find me chugging oat milk coffees. Or hanging out with my son Jake and his two dads (my co-parents). We’re a rainbow family, and I’m proud to be a part of a community that celebrates love in all forms.

So, if you’re looking for a wedding photographer with heart, humour, and an adventurous spirit, then I could be your gal. And don’t just take my word for it, read some I Shall Take The Heart reviews from some of my awesome couples. Excited to hear all about your plans! 


“All our guests have said the photos were amazing and they wish you had been their wedding photographer!” Rachel & Chris

“I’m afraid there really is nothing we would improve so no constructive criticism to give. I dug deep but unfortunately, we couldn’t have been happier with everything!” SJ & Alec
