Contact Emily Santoro

I am a wedding and elopement photographer. More than a photographer, I like establishing a deep connection with my couples, so they can feel comfortable with me in any moment, before and during their special day. I believe that my job does not end with photography, but it includes all the support that a couple need, whether is technical or emotional.  
As part of my process, I send a questionnaire to get to know each other, and as a gift a guide that help them through the planning process.  
About my photos: The style is storytelling, natural, real, authentic 
There is always a human connection between me and you, so during the day you can feel comfortable and relaxed, to really enjoy every moment. 
Think about me not just as you photographer, but as a friend who truly believes you deserve the best moments of your life, and I am here to help you in any way I can.  
I cover UK, Scotland, and Italy but would love to travel everywhere. I will be officially based in Florence from September 2022

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

I am based in Leeds but I will be Italy based in Florence from September 2022. I can cover everywhere in UK and Italy. I have different price lists depending on where I have to go.

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

I have been a wedding Photographer for 6 years. I don't remember precisely, but I have been the main Photographer for at least 150 weddings till now

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

My style is really natural and candid. Definitely I am not that kind of photographer that tells you all the time what to do and where to look. I prefer go with the flow, leaving space for you two to enjoy the moment, guiding you of course, but in really easy and not posing way. My goal is catching and describe you in an authentic way, the way you two melt into each other as you would do every day.

What's the typical wedding coverage package that you offer? What is the price?

Generally is the one with 10 hours of coverage, for a total price of 1,250 €

Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?

I have my personal studio in my house, I would be more than happy to have you here for a chat. We can also grab a coffee in a quiet place to discuss about your big day ;-) 
Yes, I am available also for Skype/Zoom appointments

What are your professional degrees, credentials, affiliations? Have you taken any recent educational workshops or classes?

I have a degrees in Photography. I attended the IED EUROPEAN INSTITUTE OF DESIGN in Rome

Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself?

The happiness of my couples is my priority. Every couple I worked with, gave me something in terms of emotions and personal growth. For this I always give 100%. It is extremely important for me to create a connection with them, in order to understand what they want, and what they feel. Most of the time, I feel yes like their photographer, but also something more. A friend, someone that understand your needs, and feel you as human being.
