Hi! I'm Emma, I'm 26 and based in Carlisle, Cumbria!

I fell in love with photography around the age of 17 when I picked up an old film camera in a vintage shop while on my art college lunch break. I actually learnt photography from that film camera through months of trial and error and a LOT of rolls of film! For years it was just a hobby and I ended up going from art college to a 9-5 job in accounting, until I finally took the leap to pursue a more "me" career in April 2022.



A lot of people ask me "why Emma Halliburton Creative? Why not 'Photography' instead?" Truth be told, when I took the leap to go self employed, I'd just been made redundant from my 9-5 and didn't have much time to prepare. I'd dabbled in illustration and design work for a couple of years (my main client being illustrating and designing the tins for The Victorian Candle Co), and originally thought I'd pursue design work as my "main" career and photography second. I thought the easiest way to run my business would be to have it all under the one name, and "creative" fits both elements perfectly.


However, things definitely changed after I shot my summer of weddings in 2022 and I realised that wedding photography was my true passion. There's just something about the buzz of weddings that I thrive off, it's such a happy environment and the job satisfaction when my couples receive their photos is indescribable.

So, maybe one day I'll rebrand to Emma Halliburton Photography, but for now, Creative it is!


I have an extensive wedding photography portfolio and have worked across Scotland, Cumbria and Northumberland. When I'm not snapping or designing I absolutely love to travel and explore new places (meaning I'm ALWAYS up for travelling for a destination wedding!).


I have a documentary wedding photography style, meaning I LOVE to capture those natural, candid moments and opt for more casual posing prompts rather than those stiff-looking traditional poses. I absolutely love capturing the raw emotions of the day - the smiles, the laughter and the tears. If you think we'd be a good fit for your wedding (or family photoshoots!) just drop me a contact form submission or an email!
