Who is Emily Fleur?
I'm a 21-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 nearly 250 weddings as well as over 500 photo shoots, it’s safe to say I've had some pretty incredible moments in the last six years. One of these would be photographing two farming world records, and another would be photographing a double wedding (two sisters).
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 looking forward to being able to give my business my full attention, having been concentrating on getting better for the last two years.
Why a chicken?
So why did I choose a chicken for my logo?
Ever since my first business selling eggs at age 8, I've had my own chickens and I have always adored them.
I wanted my logo to mean something to me, as well as being a little different.
Inside the logo, you'll notice a wedding couple at a church, a cow, a lamb and a family having a picnic. These are things I really wanted to try and incorporate within the logo as not only do they represent what I photograph, but they also say a lot about me and the things I love in life.
