EMILY FLEUR


The story that makes us unique.

 

I'm a 24-year-old photographer born and raised on my family farm in Devon. As the youngest of five and aunt to nine, I noticed that finding the time to take photos and capture memories could be hard, especially in a particularly large family because there is always something else going on. So, I purchased a camera with money I had saved from selling chicken eggs and discovered a new passion.

I launched my photography business in 2012, leaving school at the age of 15 to give it my attention full-time. I was booked for my first wedding two months later and from there, my business grew rapidly. I am now one of the most successful young photographers in the country.

Having worked at over 250 weddings as well as over 500 photo shoots, it’s safe to say I've had some pretty incredible moments in the last 8 years. One of these would be photographing two farming world records, and another would be photographing a birth.

Business has always come naturally to me – I started selling chicken eggs at age 8, sold geese for Christmas at 13 and then launched my photography business at 15. However, in 2016 I found out I had an AVM – a condition I was born with but didn’t know about until I had my first haemorrhage. A link to the story can be found here.

But don't worry! I'm now recovered and giving my business my full attention.

When coronavirus hit the UK it would be safe to say that everything changed. For me, this meant weddings being cancelled and more time to refocus. The one walk a day rule started a new passion for me - Dartmoor. So after a couple weeks of heading up onto the hills, I started taking my camera with me. Of course these images went down well with my friends, family and customers so now I'm here to bring you the very best of Dartmoor, every day.

*Something to take note of is that I can get any photo I have taken printed/mounted/framed. If you have seen an image on social media and it isn't for sale on here please do message me.*
