Capture the Moment


Hello and welcome to ERE Photography!


I'm Emily, a licensed, freelance photographer in the UAE. I have been taking photographs since I received a Kodak 110 for my 10th birthday. I can still remember the very first photograph I took with that camera, a picture of my ginger cat.


I therefore firmly believe that photographs capture precious moments in time, so that they can exist forever. How many times have you looked at a long lost photograph and then been swept up in the memories to which it is related? 


When I show photographs to my 5 year old daughter, of her as a baby, she smiles when she recognises herself. Likewise when I see a photograph of me aged 2 with my grandparents or one of me as a Brownie in 1980. The first photograph of my husband with our daughter is priceless, as is the first one of me and my son. Some moments can never be replicated and a photograph prevents them from being lost or forgotten. Memories may fade but photographs can help you relive the moment, in an instant.

I really enjoy seeing the reaction of people who view their photos from a shoot for the first time and it is so special to be able to offer them that experience.


I have an absolute passion for photography, which has not dimmed over the years. I really love to shoot weddings, as they represent such a wonderful moment in people's lives. I also capture family or lifestyle shots, your pets, and various celebrations, such as a cake smash session or birthday parties. Other special occasions such as an engagement, an anniversary, a hen party or a baby shower can also be covered. I accept commissions and corporate requests, such as products, interiors or headshots.


Would you like to display a piece of photographic artwork in your home or workplace? High resolution digital files are available for some of the photographs on this website, such as the desert ones, UAE landscapes, camels, forts, flora and fauna. They look superb blown up and on canvas!

If you like my style, please get in touch; I would be honoured to provide you with photographs to treasure.
