Irislove Photography

I am Emma Hartley, and I love photography. 

What inspires my work? Love. What do I also love? I love my mum, and her name is Iris.
So "irislove" was born.
I've been taking photos for over 10 years now, it's been a hobby that has turned into a profession - I feel very fortunate!
I have a Diploma in Professional Photography, and I specialise in Wedding and Family photography.  I am Auckland based, but please ask me to travel!
I have a wonderful husband, I am the mother of two incredible children, I am British, and I am really looking forward to meeting you and take your wedding or family photos! :))

Here are some of the lovely words my clients have said about my work:
"Emma is fantastic! My husband and I booked Emma for our engagement and wedding day photos - whilst neither of us is generally at ease in front of a camera, Emma made both sessions simple and relaxed. 

On our wedding day - we felt we had struck gold - Emma not only took wonderful photos of our day, she also helped us in getting ready, rallied the troops when it started to rain, (and dabbled in some baby sitting). It was as if she was an extra friend and guest on our big day.

And so we thank you Emma, and would absolutely recommend your service to our friends, family, and others"

Rebecca & Dan

I was so impressed with your focus on making sure my daughter was happy at home and letting each moment speak for itself.
You made the process so easy, and the pictures will be treasured forever"  


"Can't speak highly enough about Emma.
Emma knows how to make you feel very relaxed and has a real talent for capturing those special moments.
Her professionalism and the way she also makes your guests feel special are exceptional.
