DESTINATION WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER.
I’m Emily, and I’m a documentary destination wedding photographer, with a relaxed style offering creative coverage across the world. Award-winning UK portrait photographer based in Rainham, Kent. Read more about me.
Natural documentary DESTINATION wedding photographer
I’m Emily Crutcher, a destination wedding photographer with a relaxed, natural, documentary style of photography. Although I hail from Rainham, Kent, I’ve shot weddings all over the world. 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. You can also read a little more about me.
“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
My destination wedding prices start at £2995. 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.
BEAUTIFUL PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY
When I take a photograph, I capture a moment that you can never again get back – but you can relive it through these priceless images. Your newborn will never again be this small; your child will never again be this young; your family will never be at this point again; you will never feel the same way you do right now – so come on, let’s make sure this time lasts forever. Let’s make sure you remember those details. Let’s make you shine. For more information on my prices, please get in touch or visit my pricing page.
I love shooting proposals and beautiful engagement/couples photo sessions, to capture the both of you as your natural selves.LET'S talk ENGAGEMENTS

- Sonia & Ben
Emily is a wonderfully talented photographer with an excellent eye for detail. She was always attentive and happy to chat, particularly in the run up until our wedding (when I was asking hundreds of questions!) she remained helpful and kind.
- Daisy & Ian
Wow. There’s not much more I can say than that – the pictures are stunning and we are so happy with them! Thank you sooooooo much!!!
- Christie & Stephen
She was fantastic at getting my son to look at the camera and keep him engaged and keep the shoot fun. With my wedding she blended in and captured the raw emotion of all who attended. The shots were so natural and that’s what I love about them. She helped capture the moments of my day so we are able to relive them.
- Sophie & Ashley
Her friendly, relaxed nature made everything so much easier on us, since usually we both hate having our photographs taken! Everybody has mentioned how impressed they are with Emily and the photographs, it has been a genuine pleasure.
