Kind Words

Alexis & Brian

WOOOOW. I am so so excited to get your email and I just LOVE the photos. They are goofy and happy and distinctly us.

Your photos are stylistically exactly what I wanted and I could not be happier. Thanks so much for all your hard work and for making us both so happy!

Even more excited for the wedding now!!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart,

Melissa & Matt

I am someone who dreads getting my pictures taken and I was very anxious before our couples shoot. Emily made the entire process natural, fun but most of all - easy. She told us to be ourselves and act natural, while she captured our best moments. She encouraged us to talk, be funny, laugh, dance, kiss and be our usual selves the entire time.

Our pictures turned out beyond anything I could have ever imagined. I almost always have something negative to say about pictures I see of myself, but these photos are perfect and I will treasure them forever. I highly recommend Emily Cantera Photography for any photos you need done!

Riley & Jordyn

I personally am not a huge fan of getting my photo taken but Emily took our photos and made it so comfortable, easy and so much fun! Would 100 percent recommend to anyone looking to get their photo taken! You wont regret it!

Elise & Dom

Emily is a professional and understated photographer. Her work is unique, clean, clear and captures the song that is rhythm in my family. She has been able to time and time again capture my families story and put it onto paper. I absolutely cannot recommend her enough and keep coming back for our family's photography needs. Thanks Em - you're amazing!

Meet Emily

Self-proclaimed mermaid, adventure seeker and bibliophile

Hello! I am Emily, I also go by Em so feel free to use either of those. I am a wedding and lifestyle photographer in the Fraser Valley and Greater Vancouver area. I am slightly obsessed with capturing details and documenting your day to tell a story constructed of pictures.

I currently live in Abbotsford, BC but I love to visit new places and adventure. I have traveled to only 8 different countries but plan on visiting many more soon. My next big adventure looks like it will be in Peru! As much as I enjoy exploring foreign places, British Columbia in itself is one of the most gorgeous places in the world. I am always up for exploring new places in this beautiful province I call home, so if you would like to go somewhere cool I would love to tag along!
