When we were planning our wedding, Emily was recommended to me by more than one person – and her pricing was actually LESS than we had already looked at – so we decided to meet with her… and within 10 minutes my wife and I knew that she was the one we would go with.
Not only do her and my wife happen to have the same deliciously nerdy interests, we could tell right away that she was a genuine person that actually cared about making our day special. We felt that she was more interested in becoming our friends, than merely making us her clients. Although she was already booked on our big day, she assured us we’d be taken care of.
Our photographers Tiffany and Michelle were awesome, super sweet and professional; and really delivered for us when we had to change our planned outdoor shots on the fly… -32C. in Winnipeg FTL! They took an awesome mix of professionally posed, and candid shots throughout the day/evening and were a pleasure to have with us.
Emily’s editing is second to none! As my wife and I planned our wedding, we quickly discovered that not every photographer is great with interracial contrast, and I am much darker than my wife. This can pose a problem, especially with a bright winter wedding. All of the colours came back so beautifully – and we can definitely tell where/when she adjusted contrast accordingly when needed (thanks! lol).
We are beyond happy with our wedding photos, and plan on contracting Stardust again in the future for our baby pics. I would highly recommend Emily and Stardust to anyone – I can’t imagine finding a better value for wedding photographers. Thank you once again, you’ll definitely be seeing us in the future. Cheers!

From start to finish, our experiences with Emily were truly amazing. I love her energy, creativity and organization. She had wonderful ideas, clued into important dynamics to capture and provided us with the most beautiful and touching photographs anyone could ask for. I have and will continue to HIGHLY recommend Stardust Photography. I can’t thank Emily enough for capturing our special day and am so grateful for her time and talents!!

I cannot say enough about how amazing Emily and Rammy are as people and as photographers! We took engagement photos last November with Emily and our crazy dog and the very next day we got sneak peeks! We used many of them for the save the dates, Christmas cards and along the aisle at our wedding.
All our photos are movie poster worthy photos full of rich color and detail. For the wedding there was a great mix of candids, formals and venue pictures with some cat pictures! They were very accommodating with the spur of the moment photo requests from friends and family, shot in a variety of styles (including “funky” lol).both of them made the whole day so much fun with dad jokes, and capturing the funny faces my husband fell in love with.
If you’re looking for affordable, high quality (voted one of the top 3 on Winnipeg!) and for your photos to be bright, happy and creative, look no further than Stardust Photography!
We used Stardust Photography to take our wedding photos this January and I honestly can not imagine myself going with anybody else. We are blown away by all the amazing photos we got and I am 100% satisfied, I cannot stop looking at them! Emily was absolutely amazing to work with. When we were deciding on a photographer to go with, we met with several originally, and we didn’t feel comfortable with any of them. But then we met Emily and we got along with her so well immediately. She’s such a friendly, outgoing, funny person which makes it super easy to open up in front of her with the camera. We had several meetings with her before the wedding and engagement photos, and every single time she made sure she understood exactly what we wanted and made sure we were comfortable with all the decisions we were making.
When we did our engagement photos, she made a tiny little park look incredible in the pictures with her amazing talent and editing skills, which made me even more excited for the wedding! She would go above and beyond to get different angles and perspectives for our photos; she even lost her shoes in a muddy river for us lol and drove home with nothing on her feet! She told us our pictures would be ready without two weeks, but she surprised us and sent them all within 24 hours which was so awesome!
The day of the wedding, we knew she was bringing an assistant photographer, but she also ended up bringing a third photographer (who I’m pretty sure was still in training), so we had 3 people taking our photos all day which meant we got even more angles and options which was awesome. Throughout the day, they were all coming up with unique photo ideas so we would have lots of beautiful unique pictures, and it was super fun posing for all the ideas they had. When we decided to do photos outside in the -35 degree weather, they didn’t complain and still managed to be with us outside and take gorgeous photos in the snow.
Overall, one of the things I loved most about Emily was she was just a breath of fresh air. It was so refreshing to work with a wedding vendor who clearly was passionate about not only photography, but the wedding industry in general. She was always giving us recommendations for different wedding vendors and always had something positive to say about the ones she’s worked with. It is so nice to be able to work with a wedding vendor that doesn’t treat you like “just another bride”. She was genuinely so excited with me the entire process, even though she’s probably been to hundreds of weddings and done this whole process countless times with different brides lol. She made me feel even more excited about my big day.
I am super happy with how our photos turned out and still can’t stop staring at them. I would recommend Stardust Photography to anyone looking for a funny, fun loving photographer with unique photos!

Emily was the photographer for my wedding this June and words cannot describe how amazing she was!!! Everything from the meetings we had to the actual wedding day and then to receiving my photographs, everything was so organized and professional. Her second shooter Taylor was also a pleasure to work with. The love Emily obviously has for other people’s love really made my wedding day special.. all the compliments, creative ideas, and smiles despite her running on only a few hours of sleep (from another wedding in another province the previous day!) were so appreciated. My wedding photographs also came SO FAST!! I was truly shocked to see that I had a download link in my email within a month!! And then to see I had been mailed an amazing little wooden box with mine and my husbands names engraved into it that held the USB drive was such a beautiful touch. Everyone who sees any of the photos is absolutely blown away with how beautiful they are, as am I. Emily asked me what kind of “style” I’d like them edited/shot in, for example – bold and colourful or more airy and light – and she made them look exactly how I’d imagined them looking, like my very own fairytale! I will forever recommend Stardust photography to anyone who’s looking for a lovely, caring, and creative person to capture their special moments! Thank you so very much to Emily (and Taylor) for making my wedding day the best day ever!!

Emily was an absolute pleasure to work with. We admire her skill as she has a wonderful eye for setting up breathtaking shots, time and time again. That’s really saying something, as both my husband and I are not used to being the subject of the day. She has a positive energy that is very contagious, and you can tell that she is very passionate about her work. While some people saw a rainy day, she toughed it out for us and captured the magic when I’m sure many photographers would have preferred to move indoors. She went above and beyond for us as far as we are concerned. She returned our engagement photos to us in record time, and we cannot wait to see more of our wedding photos. She is highly adaptable, very friendly and professional. I would recommend her services to anyone in a heartbeat!

Emily was our photographer for our destination wedding in the Dominican. She was absolutely amazing and we recommend her to EVERYONE. She is super organized, creative, friendly and fun! She took the time get to know us before our engagement shoot to find out what we were looking for with our photos. We loved what she did so much with the fall engagement photos that we decided to leave it up to her to come up with unique places to shoot for our wedding. She was so excited to do our shoot that she scouted areas around the resort for days making sure she knew all the fun places we could get amazing shots at. We are really glad we chose her because all our pictures came out amazing and you really get a sense of her passion for photography! She is also an amazing editor and can really throw some extra kick into your photos if needed. All of our family and friends loved her and she just fit right in to our group on vacation. I have had so many people ask where I found her and that they have never seen such a unique, beautiful photos. She really exceeded our expectations, and we are so grateful we chose her! Thanks Emily
– Tia Hurl
Wonderful company! Quick answers, I never waited long for a response. The photos are gorgeous and all of our friends and family love our photos! We will definitely be coming back in the future. Thank you so much Emily and Rammy for all your hard work and capturing our special day!! :D!
– Jennifer Barr
Emily was absolutely fantastic to work with. From start to finish, she provided exceptional service. Emily, along with her second shooter Jensen, were able to capture amazing, creative photos that we are so in love with! They were total professionals and able to be flexible to our needs throughout the day. We are so happy with our decision to work with Emily. Her prices are extremely reasonable and the results are incredible. Thank you, Emily, for capturing our day perfectly!!
– Janelle Banville
Stardust Photography were the photographers/ videographer at our wedding and they did an amazing job! I met with Emily before the wedding and went through the itinerary with her and she helped plan out the best timings for her team to be there in order to capture all moments of our special days! Furthermore, we had 4 events for our wedding and wanted all events captured in our highlights video, Emily and her team were so accommodating to ensure attendance at all events and each event was beautifully captured in our highlights video (which was a huge hit amongst our family and friends). Emily and her team were always early, set-up and ready to go at our agreed upon time. The pictures were ready so fast (within a month!!!) and they were amazing! All special moments were captured, Emily did a few special effects for some of the photos these were sooo lovely and again a huge hit amongst our family and friends. In addition to all the talent, Emily was a true pleasure to work with and it was so easy to communicate with her throughout with any concerns/ requests. Overall, we highly recommend Stardust Photography to anyone looking for a photographer!

– Kelley Shuster
Emily and her assistant did a fantastic job of capturing our beautiful day! If you want a friendly, personable, caring, positive, motivated and extremely patient photographer for any special occasion my husband and I strongly recommend Emily. She not only took the time to keep in regular communication with us during the whole process, she went above and beyond for us without hesitation to guarantee we felt special. Emily was such a joy and honour to have capture our wedding day, and we are now both using Stardust Photography for all our upcoming special life events. She is not only exceptionally talented she is very genuine, and has a soft heart which you can see in her smile. If your looking for a photographer please consider Emily, you won’t be dissatisfied!
– Rachel Blair
Emily is absolutely fantastic! My husband and I have gotten to know her over the last two years and she is the most sweetest and creative person who also shares our love for the British sci-fi show Doctor Who (which was our wedding theme!) She did our engagement pictures last year and she did not disappoint with our wedding pictures. I am in complete awe with the previews we’ve gotten already and I can’t wait to see the rest of them! Thanks again to Emily and JD for spending the day with us and capturing our special moments! If you are looking for someone that takes mystical and enchanting photos, Stardust is the way to go!
– Nicole Martinez
After working with Emily, I have a new standard for photographers. There aren’t enough good things I can say about her, the attention to detail, her caring spirit, creativity, sense of humor, love of art and people, willingness to work around schedules and patience… her style is adaptive but consistent, her editing is emotional and she has given us the gift of memories that we will cherish forever.”
– Nicole Lawrence (maternity/newborn sessions)
“We have never done photos before and I was a ball of nerves. Emily made the process of having our engagement
– Megan Burda
“We had Emily photograph our wedding and she was absolutely amazing! She made sure to talk with me before the wedding so that everything would go smoothly and I felt completely comfortable leaving everything in her hands! We had an amazing time and all of our photographs turned out beautifully! We also received all of our pictures very shortly after our big day. I 100% recommend Stardust Photography to anyone looking for a photographer. I will definitely be booking again!”
– Heather K.
I really enjoyed the photography session with Emily. I’m not a person who likes being photographed, but she made my 8 month old daughter and I very comfortable during the shoot and the result was a series of photos I absolutely love. They are a beautiful keepsake my daughter and I will have forever, to commemorate her fleeting babyhood.
– Heather Senyk (family session)
“My fiancée and I were so fortunate to have Emily as our photographer for our engagement photos this fall!! She is so extremely dedicated and passionate about her work, and it shines through in our beautiful photos! She was able to capture so many natural laughs, smiles, and truly tender moments between us that we will cherish forever.
Additionally, Emily made the extra effort to make sure that our photos turned out just right! Whether it was by incorporating a variety of creative techniques at the time, providing us with photo “sneak peeks”, or through our beautiful final photos, she goes above and beyond in all she does!”
– Danielle Paradis
“Cannot say enough how happy I am with my family/
– Candace K.
“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Emily twice in the past year. She’s one of the most creative minds I know. There are no limits to what her imagination can bring to your photo shoot. She is excellent to communicate with prior to shooting, I always have so many questions and she answers them all with patience. She is open to all suggestions and really leaves room for you to bring your own spin to the concept. She’s also great at putting you at ease once you are in front of her camera. I have a lot of fun with her and look forward to working with Emily again in the future.”
– Roxanne Lebeau
“I wanted to send you a little note to say WOW! We really appreciate your efforts and the final results. You made my daughter very happy with the pictures you took. I would highly recommend you as a photographer. Thanks again for helping us record such an important event for our family.”
– Cynthia Borges (family session)

– Daniel Bean (Maternity shoot)
“Emily is not only an amazing photographer but a kind and caring individual. I have worked with her on several occasions and her dedication and excitement is inspirational. Anyone meeting her from a professional standpoint can’t help but fall into a friendship with her. She is dedicated and not afraid of a challenge and believe me she has faced many! Emily will be a fantastic person to work with, and you will not regret hiring her.”
– Melinda Gulbinski
“We would like to extend a HUGE thank you to the lovely Emily from Startdust Photography for volunteering and donating her time and talent to our Pet Pictures with Santa Paws event for Jenn’s Furry Friends Rescue.
She is such a pleasure to work with, and is extremely talented. Everyone (both human and 4-legged) loved her, and we sincerely hope that we will have the pleasure of working with her again.”

– Tyler Syata
“Thank you so much for the lovely work you did with our photos. They turned out beautifully and I feel that you really captured our personality as a couple on camera. I was a little nervous going into it, as it was a new experience for us but I am so thrilled that we had you take these pictures of us in this stage in life. I cannot say enough how thankful I am or how much I love the photos. I look forward to having you capture more memories and moments with our little one!”
– Vanessa Martens (Maternity shoot)
Emily was the photographer for our wedding and as soon as we booked her I knew we were in good hands. I have known her for several years and have worked with her before, my confidence in her abilities put me at ease. Her communication was great and we got the photos earlier than she originally told us to expect them which was a nice treat. The visuals captured were intimate and special.
– Scott Carnegie
Our hockey team had photos done at the Forks on the ice in the FREEZING cold. Emily was a rockstar and took incredible photos (even more impressive because she probably couldn’t feel her fingers). Not being able to feel my toes after an hour outside was definitely worth it seeing the pictures she got. Best team photos I have ever had hands down.
