NATURAL WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER KENT
I’m Emily Crutcher, a Kent wedding photographer with a relaxed, natural, documentary style of photography. Although I hail from Rainham, Kent, I’ve shot weddings all over the UK – and am now branching out to shoot them worldwide and internationally as a destination wedding photographer Kent. I believe that beauty is in the eye of the beholder and can be seen in all things, big or small – and I see it in every image I capture. I’ve had the honour of photographing weddings in many amazing locations, including the woods and countryside inside tipis and tents – and never tire of what I do. I love to photograph weddings.

“A marriage is not a noun; it’s a verb. It isn’t something you get. It’s the way you love your partner everyday.” – Barbara De Angelis
I’ve shot civil ceremonies, same-sex ceremonies, church weddings, DIY weddings, manor house weddings, castle weddings, outdoor weddings and rural barn weddings with some of the coolest couples you’d ever meet and alongside some amazing suppliers. Here is a link to some of the wedding venues I have photographed recently.
“I took a photo of us mid-embrace. When I am old and alone, I will remember that I once held something truly beautiful.” – Joe Dunthorne
What I do is all about blending in with your plans, without causing a disturbance or directing your day. Natural wedding photography is all about capturing you in your most candid state – with real emotions. Happy tears and silly faces; tender embraces and intimate moments. These things fill your wedding up from it’s very rawest state. The feelings, the emotions, the people are the things you are going to remember from your wedding day – and these are the things I photograph. When I’m working, I’m unobtrusive, friendly and relaxed – I’ll quietly snap away moments as they occur without intruding on them. I follow the action. If you’d like, you can pop me a message and find out if I’m available on your wedding date!
“Love is the voice under all silences, the hope which has no opposite in fear; the strength so strong mere force is feebleness: the truth more first than sun, more last than star.” – E.E. Cummings
My couples tend to be relaxed about their wedding day and wishing to enjoy every moment as much as possible without the stress of being forced to stand around for hours, when they could be sipping champagne. Sometimes they are shy around the camera – and that’s completely normal! – this is something that we work together to combat, particularly through a pre-wedding engagement session. Some couples are unsure as to whether they initially want the session, but once we’ve spoken about it and reassured their fears, every person who has been unsure has come back to me and said they are so glad that they went for it – and that they feel so relaxed and trusting about their wedding photography now that they know me and my camera. When their wedding day comes about, they already know me and can relax with me in the room. After the wedding, many couples come back to me and mention that it was great to have me involved in their wedding because they hardly noticed I was there for the candid moments. I will briefly capture some group photographs for you, should it be your request, as I know that these are something your family will treasure. My couples also all receive a short newly-wed portrait session once they are married – however, there is no “forced” malarkey with me. We will take a walk together against a beautiful scene, where you can finally take ten minutes to be alone with your new husband/wife. You can chat, laugh, cry, play, and I will simply snap the natural photographs of you two together as a couple – in love. This is what I do best as a wedding photographer kent. Capturing your relationship.
“Love is the emblem of eternity; it confounds all notion of time; effaces all memory of a beginning, all fear of an end.” – Madame De Stael
Rather than simply saying I take photographs, I would describe what I do as creating memories. I want to capture the emotions you are sharing with your loved ones and create images that you will cherish for years; handing them down to your children and grandchildren and saying “this is my wedding. this is us, entirely in love.” I am entirely addicted to love – I’ll follow where the emotions flow and chase that sense of adventure that comes with it. Documenting two people or a family in love is just one of the amazing parts of my job. I’m passionate and devoted to my work, and you can read more about my approach to wedding photography.
