Behind the Lens
Hi! I'm Rebecca Nash Emerson and I'm a wedding and business branding photographer based in the London, Ontario Canada area. Or at least that’s my official title.
I started Rebecca Nash Photography in 2009 because I loved to photograph people. To take a moment, to freeze it in a beautiful photograph and say ‘this one, this moment stays’.
The first time I photographed a wedding, I fell in love with photographing weddings. What can I say? I’m a total hopeless romantic.
Now, I’m excited to work with amazing couples who are excited about not just their wedding, but their marriage. Brides who have big dreams but don’t want to walk the planning road alone. Couples who want to save themselves the time, and overwhelm, of trying to do it all themselves.
On October 2014 I walked down the aisle and said I do. To this day, it’s the best decision I ever made. That day I became a wife.
Now, when I look at the things around me I recognize the most valuable thing I own, the most valuable thing I will ever own is my wedding album.
It reminds me of the love we have. It fills me with joy to remember all the people who wanted to support us in such an important moment. And I will never tire of curling up on the couch and looking through the images with my daughter.
Being a bride gave me new perspective not just on the value of a photographer and the impact they can make, but on what it feels like to be on the other side of the camera. To stand in your shoes as you plan for your wedding day.
Take it from someone who feels more comfortable behind the camera than in front of it - a great photographer can not only make you look and feel good in front of the camera, they can grow your audience and increase sales for your business too.
Why you need personal branding photos…
The most popular social media platforms for most people under 40 are Instagram & Pinterest, both very visual platforms. If you want to show up in front of your ideal client and connect, they need to see you.
Save the hours upon hours spent searching for the right images to match your brand when you want to post online, create new marketing materials, and so much more.
Well planned and styled images tell a story of who you are, what you do, and why you do it at first glance helping people connect to your and your why. People don’t buy what you do, they buy why you do it - but in an increasingly visual world how do you share it?
With professional photos, you are seen as a credible source and thus are trusted enough to purchase from which can lead to an increase in sales.
People buy from people they know, like and trust. Showing up consistently (both in frequency & the style of images) communicates that you are professional, reliable, and trustworthy. The right images shorten the know, like, and trust factor so that you can get clients quicker.
