Ottawa Photography Reviews
DOMINIK & DOMINIK – NAC WEDDING – AUGUST 2019
Emma is the absolute best at what she does. She is dedicated, creative, kind and loves what she does and it shows in her work. Emma was always so flexible with me. She always answered me promptly and helped with anything I may need. Her work is flawless and my husband and I are absolutely in love with our photos and we’ve gotten so many compliments on them. My sister actually recently blew up some of the pictures and hung them up in her house and they look absolutely amazing and so professional and I will be doing the same shortly! Emma is the only photographer I will ever hire in the future for whatever photography I may need. I also forgot to mention that her pricing is VERY competitive for the quality of her work. Her turn around time to get the photos back to you is amazing seeing that she carefully edits each of them. I could go on and on about her but please take my advice and hire her, you won’t regret it! A million thanks to Emma, because of you I will always have beautiful memories of my wedding day!
KELSIE & JON – RESTAURANT 18 WEDDING JUNE 2019
Choosing Emma as our photographer was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. We already knew that we loved her light and airy style, and all her photos were amazing, but I was even further impressed with her professionalism and organization in prepping you for the big day. Our photos are stunning, thank you Emma for capturing our special day.
ABIGAIL & JAMES VALENCIANO – WEDDING TORONTO MARCH 2013
Hiring Emma as our wedding photographer was the best decision! 6 years later I still look back at our wedding photos with fondest memories and love reliving the day by sharing them with old and new friends. Emma truly captures our day in a beautiful and memorable way that causes nostalgia. Her approach is both artistic yet journalistic. She does her work professionally, efficiently, and without compromise, but also created a personal relationship with her clients so that you are comfortable. The entire process from sending an inquiry to post-wedding interactions was smooth and enjoyable. I can’t say there’s an end to the relationship once we received our wedding photos because now I look for ways to hire her for capturing other live events!
JENNIFER MULLIGAN – SPARK LIFE CARE
Emma is our only choice for office photos. The only thing that exceeds the quality of her work, is her glowing presence and out-of-the-box creative thinking. Each time we have worked with Emma, the final products always surpass our expectations, and we are left with bright, beautiful, crystal-clear images. Her ease and natural charisma make even the most nervous of us feel comfort and relaxed- and we find ourselves laughing through the whole thing. You’ll forget there is a camera around! Thank you, Emma, for all your hard work, professionalism, and all the ‘inside’ jokes we now share- here’s to many more years of working together!
ASHLEY BEAUDIN – THE IMPERFECT BOSS

AALA+ HAYDER – WEDDING SUMMER 2018
Emma is an incredibly talented, and passionately humble photographer who will go above and beyond to capture the magic of your special day. I’ve been following her work for years and always imagined how much of a dream it would be to have her as my wedding photographer. I truly feel honoured that my dream became a reality! Emma, thank you for not only being our wedding day photographer, but for being a calm, trustworthy, and loving part of our special day. You serve your clients with so much love, patience, support and care and we truly believe any one who gets the opportunity to work with you is lucky and will certainly be blown away. If you want someone who will be more than a photographer -someone who will selflessly support you where and how you may need, accommodate you to the best of her ability, reliably show-up prepared to work her magic, and support you with her loving words of encouragement, and calm presence -then Emma is your person. Thank you for your talent, love, and support, Emma. Your work not only captured a part of our story, but it became a part of it♥️
AMAL + NAZIR – WEDDING WINTER 2017
I can say with absolute certainty that investing in wedding photography is one of the most rewarding aspects of the wedding experience, and I am so grateful to Emma and her team for the absolutely fabulous job they did. Emma is amazingly talented and you will notice that right from the start with her incredibly personable approach with many customizable options to meet the unique needs of the wedding. Emma took the time to do an engagement session with us which was a great way for us to familiarize ourselves with the process. On both the engagement and wedding shoots we were amazed at Emma’s dedication to capture the moments perfectly. Despite the cold weather, Emma worked tirelessly and was receptive to spontaneous suggestions and adjustments. She worked around other vendors seamlessly. She used her unique talent to capture every moment with the same magic with which we experienced it, from the most picturesque angles in order to create a stunning gallery. These are the kind of pictures you will never tire of looking back on fondly and with gratitude. We highly recommend choosing Emma to capture your special day – you won’t regret it!

SEAN & SARAH – WEDDING SUMMER 2017
There are not enough words to describe Emma and her talents. She is truly a beautiful soul with an amazing talent. She is extremely organised, tentative, a great photo coach and a friend on your wedding day. She makes any area magical and brings out the true beauty and personality of every couple in her photography.
My fiance and I had such a great experience with Emma! She was very wonderful to work with and made the day fun and intimate. She has a great eye for capturing naturally beautiful photos; all of our photos were absolutely stunning! We also really appreciated her flexibility and her guidance in helping us pick the perfect location for our photos.
LEENA & TARIQ – ENGAGEMENT SUMMER 2017
Emma is the best photographer I’ve ever dealt with. She is externe talented in capturing the best photos, no matter the content, whether its a cute table setup, your shoes and accessories and especially with couples. Rather than having set poses, as other photographers I’ve dealt with, Emma studies your chemistry and your comfort zone to get the best shots. It never feels forced, feigned or uncomfortable, and her delivery is absolutely amazing.
FATIMA & MOSHTAGH – WEDDING SPRING 2017
Emma was the photographer for my wedding, and I am absolutely blown away by her work. Emma always exceeded my expectations by being extremely accommodating and very professional. The quality of the photos themselves are astounding and we are happy to have had Emma capture this important memory. We have been recommending Emma to our friends and will definitely be asking her to take our pictures in the future! Thank you Emma!
JINAN & ABDULKARIM – WEDDING SPRING 2017
Emma is so professional and yet so caring as well, not mentioning her AMAZING photography! She really puts you at ease, as nerve wracking it can be to be a bride and to plan a wedding! She made sure to find out my schedule and all the shots I wanted for sure ahead of time, making the accommodations I needed. She and her photography partner for my wedding day did everything they could to make sure we were comfortable and happy, for the 12 hour day I had booked her for, at 4 locations, working so well with my videographer as well! It was such an amazing experience! I would recommend Emma over and over – thanks so much Emma for everything, for all your care and patience, and for listening so well to my dreams and concerns, and working with them!
RASHA & ABDALLAH – WEDDING SPRING 2017
We chose Emma for our wedding photography and she was exceptional from the first day we met her! She was very warm and friendly, professional and precise, for months before the wedding and communication with her was very smooth and she replied promptly, she makes sure that she attends to all our needs and vision for our wedding photography, and she amazed us and all guests at the wedding day, everyone commented on how fast she was jumping from one place to another with her assistant to capture each and every moment, she did not leave a tiny thing without capturing and she shared some pictures in few days after the wedding so we can see how they turned out and they were amazing, extremely creative and wonderful! everyone loved them and mentioned how talented Emma is! I highly recommend her for your wedding photography without question, if you did not hire Emma, you are losing the best vendor for your wedding!
FATIMA & HUSSEIN – WEDDING SPRING 2017
My husband and I had a great experience working with Emma on our wedding day, despite the rain. PBE is a highly organized and honest company. Emma herself is both friendly and kind and has a good eye for detail. Prices are fair and reasonable. I would highly recommend!
RAMA & MOUHANNAD – WEDDING SUMMER 2015
Emma is a wonderful human being and an amazing and talented photographer. My husband and I still can’t believe how well the pictures turned out, a year later! We don’t get tired of looking at them. The lighting, colouring, poses, everything was perfect! I loved that you captured every detail of the wedding and helped us retain these wonderful memories. I have always admired your work and was so excited to have been able to have you take pictures of our wedding! I hope that we will find other opportunities to work with you.
The pictures are so amazing and you’re so right, it’s pretty much the only thing we have left from the day which is why it’s always my advice to my friends to pick a good photographer because that’s what stays with you!
HEBA & ROSIE – LIFESTYLE SESSION FALL 2016
Had the pleasure of doing a mommy and me photoshoot with Emma recently and I was totally blown away by the entire experience. She loves what she does and it definetly shows! Emma is extremely professional yet so kind and friendly. She gave me suggestions on venues, advised about what style or theme I had in mind, and just overall kept every small detail in mind. She knew exactly how to deal with my little girl and kept her happy to get the most gorgeous shots. Emma is a huge advocate for spontaneous shots, which created some of the most memorable photos in my opinion. It was so natural, I didn’t have to try to look good – she just made it happen! When the photos were ready, Emma sent an email with a link to an online gallery that was so easy to access and was a breeze to navigate. I downloaded my images in less than 3 minutes! The online gallery is amazingly laid out and displays the photos beautifully. But most importantly, the quality of the photos exceeded my expectations. The way they were shot, prepared, and edited make them so fluid, soft, harmonious, yet striking, filled with laughter and happiness. I am beyond thankful for this shoot, it helped me turn memories into something I can look at for years and remember this precious time in my daughter’s life.
HEBA EID – LIFESTYLE SESSION FALL 2016
I am extremely camera shy and awkward when being photographed. Emma was very patient, put me at ease, and I enjoyed every minute of the session!.She made me feel beautiful :). Emma has an eye for what works and what doesn’t. A talented photographer for sure!
KRISTIN PRITCHARD – LIFESTYLE SESSION FALL 2016
Emma was fabulous! We had such a great experience. I’m sure photographing children is a challenge and Emma managed to get great shots of our littles. Will absolutely go with her again for photos!
PEGAH – LIFESTYLE SESSIONS – FALL & WINTER 2016
Emma did our maternity and newborn photography. We were very pleased and felt comfortable with her. The newborn shoot went very smoothly and we were not rushed. Emma reassured us that we can take as many breaks as needed for feeding and changing the baby which we appreciated.
HEBA & AKRAM – WEDDING SUMMER 2014
She photographed my Engagement, Bridal shower and wedding. Wouldn’t ever use anyone else’s services! She is amazing at what she does and I would hire her again and again. Our experience was unmatched, she was professional and personable from our first meeting through to the gallery delivery.
