Let's Colour Your Wedding Photography!

Emily captured both our engagement shoot and wedding day at the end of last year. We loved the bright and vibrant style in all her photos. Emily is very professional, accommodating and helpful. We would definitely recommend Colourful Creations Photography ~ Sarah & Jeremy

From the moment we booked Emily, she made plenty of time for us, helped schedule our day and ensured all important aspects were covered. We really enjoyed the pre-wedding engagement shoot. It helped us relax in front of the camera and we also got some great shots as a keepsake before the wedding. Emily was so great to work with and we found her presence and attendance almost unnoticeable during the ceremony which made for a flawless experience. Throughout the day, Emily was also very understanding of the limited time we had with our guests and we found a balance for making wonderful photos and ensuring we had time to relax and enjoy. We would highly recommend Colourful Creations to any couple planning their wedding. Thank you so much for our beautiful wedding photos!~ Lauren & Matt
