Here are a few testimonials from our treasured customers just to give you a taste of what we do here at Captured Hearts Photography, wedding and portrait photography of County Durham.


Stunning photos.

Captured Hearts were truly amazing at my Nana's 80th birthday party. The photographs were beautiful and great quality with a lovely boarder and writing. Emily doubled the photos so a copy could go in a guest book for my nana and everyone wrote under their photos which was a lovely idea. The photos are memories that we can keep forever which we wouldn't have be able to without captured hearts. Thank you!! X

Well what can i say Emily is absolutely fantastic. I am not a one and neither is my husband on getting pictures together but emily made us feel relaxed and as she knows we laughed through our whole pre wedding shoot. Emily is professional, friendly and easy to be around. Her photographs are fantastic and all of the family have said the same. If anyone asked us to recommend a photographer emily would be at the top of the list everytime. She made one of our special days even more special with the memories she has created with the stunning photos. Me and Daniel cannot thank you enough for everything.

Mr & Mrs Scott 02I am over the moon with my wedding photographs, thank you for creating amazing photos that will always leave us with such special memories on my special day. I would highly recommend you to everyone looking for a photographer with lots of patience, character and an eye for natural photograph shots. Emily’s vision and truly captured everything that I had hoped for and asked for. I think having a woman’s perspective really does give that extra touch of beauty, class and insight to the job. Emily is a professional and approachable lady to work with and I can’t thank you enough for everything!

Mr and Mrs Goodwin's wedding

Emily is absolutely fantastic, as someone who isn't a fan of having my photograph taken she made us feel so comfortable and the whole process was made very enjoyable. Emily is both very professional and friendly and it just seems right that she's a part of your special day. Her photographs are awesome, we would highly recommend her every time! I have never seen a photographer more dedicated to their work or work as hard as Emily did on our very special day. We can't thank you enough.

Amazing photographer!

Where to start? I first met Emily through a mutual friend and went to meet her to look at some of her work. We had a coffee and I must have looked at 3 photos of an album and I knew that Emily was the right person to photograph our wedding and booked her there and then!
We met Emily in Durham for our pre-wedding shoot and we had so much fun and both felt at ease whilst Emily snapped away and were so happy with the pictures we couldn't wait to see the photos of our big day!!
Emily was available to answer any questions we had running up until the wedding which was fantastic, as well as coming to the venue before the day so she could get a feel for the place.
When our wedding day finally arrived Emily blended in with everyone taking natural, posed and family photographs as well as providing us with an incredible photo booth on the evening which all of the guests loved! As for the groom - what goes on in the photo booth stays in the photo booth haha ;o)
We both don't like getting photographs taken so we were amazed to see Emily's incredible work! The pictures that she took of our wedding day were filled with love and laughter in a way we had never seen before and it was like living the whole day again looking at them!
We both want to say thank you so much to Emily and we have not just met an incredible 'photographer' but a true friend!!!
Thanks again

Captures the moment

Captured Hearts offers a comfortable, friendly and undoubtedly professional service, transporting you into an array of fantastical settings and capturing the true essence of a moment in a delicately presented photograph. I am beyond happy with the work she has done for me - I'd recommend her any day of the week.

Amy Telford

Absolutely Fantastic!

I booked Emily as i didn't have any nice photos of my daughter and I.
And wow.....I was so happy with the shots of us both, she captured us both in such a lovely way, portraying the bond between us in a way i wouldn't have thought could be shown through photographs. Emily is very professional, friendly and puts you at complete ease while she is taking photos, my daughter and I had lots of fun posing for the camera too, and we even ended up on the flyer for her fathers day offer!
I would definitely recommend capturedheartsphotography if you want special photos to treasure, that are much more fun than sitting in a boring studio....location portraits photos are definitely the way forward!
Thanks again Emily 🙂

Again we also met Emily through a mutual friend after she had asked if we had found a photographer for our wedding. We arranged to meet up and knew Emily was the perfect photographer for us after seeing about 3 pictures she had taken from a previous wedding! My fiancé especially loves how Emily's photographs are natural as he's not a fan of posing. Since booking Emily for our wedding next July me and my daughter enjoyed a Mother's Day shoot and found it so hard to choose between pictures! We can't wait to see the album of our big day, especially now we have found the perfect photographer! Amazing work Emily, a true talent!!

On The Buses.

I discovered Captured Hearts through a shout out for a commercial photographer on Twitter, we were after images of our fleet vehicles to use on our website and various publicity material. I got quite a few replays including recommendations and decided to go Emily because she was local, keen and competitively priced. I knew Emily's forte was portrait photography and by her own admission was a little 'afraid' of motor vehicles!. However, after two half day sessions on location she produced some amazing images of cars, mini bus and coaches. After working with and being involved with Captured Hearts for only a short time, we found Emily's approach very organised and friendly. We will definitely be using her services in the future and would not hesitate to recommend Captured Hearts to anyone else looking for that perfect picture.
