Kind Words

Aleasha & Matt

I can't express how amazing Emily is as a wedding photographer. I got married in Blind Bay this August, and Emily is one of the vendors that made my wedding a dream (and also made it look like a dream!).

If you are ever looking for a wedding photographer, hire her! Here are the reasons why you should:
1. Cool, Calm & Collected - Emily is one of those calming presences, that you immediately feel more relaxed around. With a thousand things happening on a wedding day, it really is nice to not have a photographer going "okay whats next, whats happening, etc.". Emily knew where she was supposed to be, and was there. Nevermind she also wrangled a bridal party of 14 without breaking a sweat or getting upset (which honestly I was not even able to do).
2. Creative - Emily always had a variety of pose ideas for us at the ready. Whether it was during our engagement shoot, or during getting ready (see amazing champagne pose below!), or during couples photos, Emily was coming up with fantastic & creative ideas on what would look amazing. We had so many shots that I truly love, and would not have happened if Emily wasn't there.
3. Kind & Professional - It takes a special someone to listen to someone else's grandparent talk while trying to get a job done. Emily really did an amazing job at being so kind to everyone she talked to, but still being a professional & stepping away courteously when she needed to get a shot. All of our families loved her, and spoke so highly of her after the wedding.

10/10 highly recommend Emily!

She is so easy to talk to, very relaxed and comforting, her photos are absolutely stunning, has a flexible schedule and makes it easy to make everything work!

We hired her for our wedding and we just got all our photos back and we can’t thank her enough! We’re so happy with how the photos turned out and she got some great shots! Neither of us are very comfortable with photoshoots as we feel awkward and don’t know what to do with ourselves and she made it so effortless and made us laugh to get that genuine emotion. We loved how she has a good mix of the standard posed photos that everyone loves but also some great movement and candid ones too!

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,

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!

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!

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!

Emily is so gifted. Her warmth makes her clients comfortable and she is very creative in her images. She truly captures the beauty in the day despite the weather in B.C. being occasionally unpredictable with the rain. Thank you for giving us wonderful photos filled with fun memories.
