"I will happily tell anyone and everyone about our wonderful experience with Emily!!

Thanks to Emily we have a unique and timeless memory of our wedding day to forever cherish. 

Emily painted and created a beautiful portrait of your wedding ceremony. Her attention to detail from decor, to facial expressions was incredible.

Guests still talk about this experience and for many this was their first time seeing a live wedding painting.

Emily's strong communication and social media presence also greatly contributed to our positive experience and review."


"Emily is such a talent. We had her at our wedding on Sept 7th to live paint our first dance.

All correspondence leading up to the event was polite, courteous, and punctual. She was totally on the ball and it filled me with confidence that she was going to be a professional on the day.

She was such a perfect addition to our wedding day as well- she set up to the side of our hall but was still very visible so our guests could watch and interact with her.

While I could go on and on about her 'in event' professionalism and courteousness, the painting she created for us was outstanding.

Her attention to detail in capturing both myself and my husband, as well as the detail she gave our parents makes it without a doubt our favourite wedding memory.

For couples looking for an interesting and unique addition to your day, with the benefit of being able to take home an incredibly special memento from your day should look no further."


"Emily painted the most beautiful portrait of my son and daughter-in-law at their wedding March 5/22.

It is a beautiful portrait and she even included their little dog Ruby. She didn’t miss any details and it couldn’t be any more authentic.

Emily is not only a talented, gifted artist but she was always so pleasant to deal with and kept us informed every step of the way.

The guests loved stopping by at the reception as her portrait slowly developed into a stunning painting.

It’s a unique addition to any celebration and I highly recommend Emily."


"We hired Emily as a live painter at our wedding reception, and it was truly such a pleasure to work with her from start to finish.

She was extremely responsive when we first reached out to her, answered all our questions about the process, and followed up in the days before our wedding to make sure she knew exactly what we wanted.

On the day of the wedding she impressed so many of our guests with her painting - we were getting comments and questions about her for months after our wedding.

She took our painting home afterwards to really fine tune the details and lighting, and kept us in the loop every step of the way.

I would definitely recommend reaching out to Emily if you're looking for a live wedding painter."

It's such a unique sentimental idea, and Emily will work really hard to make sure it's done perfectly!


"Emily was a last minute addition to our wedding and the only regret I have is not hiring her sooner!

Our painting is hanging on our wall and every time I see it, I relive the day in my head.

Emily is very professional, extremely talented and very proud of her work. She went above and beyond to ensure that everything we wanted in our painting was there and always went through us for any changes or recommendations.

Not only did she provide entertainment for the guests as she painted live during the reception, she was so kind and patient with the many questions and stares.

I HIGHLY recommend Emily for a unique experience at your event and a beautiful piece of art!"


"We retained Emily for a live wedding painting during our recent ceremony.

In addition to the experience of having Emily paint at your wedding/event, Emily's work is fantastic and would recommend her 100%.

We absolutely adore the painting and appreciate the effective communication to make the vision come true.

The framed painting now resides as the main piece in our living room.

Very professional, respectful and courteous."


"Emily painted a very precious and beautiful moment for us on our wedding day Sept 26 2020 at the Cambridge Mill.

I surprised everyone having Emily at our wedding, they all loved what she was doing for us.

She is extremely professional, flexible and she is such kind soul.

I would recommend her to anyone who wants to capture a special moment. She won't let down, guaranteed you will love her work. I will always be grateful to her."


"Emily painted the most amazing scene at our wedding! Not only is she beyond talented, Emily is so professional, organized, and lovely to work with. She has excellent communication and worked with us when we had to change our dates because of covid.

She was an absolute pleasure to work with and we are beyond thrilled with our painting!"


"We hired Emily to do a live painting of our first kiss at our wedding ceremony. We went BIG! 36x48! 

It was Emily’s first time doing such a large wedding painting but WOW it came out amazing!!!!

She was great at communicating the whole time and so patient with us rescheduling our wedding twice because of Covid.

I wouldn’t recommend anyone better to capture a once in a lifetime moment. We will treasure our painting forever. Thank you Emily!!"


"We cannot recommend Emily enough for being a part of our special day. She is professional, talented and an all around kind person who is easy to work with.

She arrived early to check out the venue and prep her area. She painted throughout the reception and we, as well as our guests, were amazed by the work she had completed by the end of the night.

She painted our vision perfectly. We cannot wait to see the finished product and appreciate she takes time to update her clients along the way. Emily is a great person to have at your wedding day."


"My wife surprised me with a painting from Emily for our wedding and it was such a special touch on the best day of my life.

Emily puts so much effort into the painting to make it absolutely perfect. In fact I thought it was finished the night of the wedding when she revealed it to us but she took it home to add even more details!

If you are looking for the perfect idea to commemorate a special occasion, look no further - Emily is a superstar and will likely be booked full so call her before she starts booking years in advance!

Thanks Emily, you've captured such a special moment that will stay with us the rest of our lives."


"You must hire Emily for your special day! She was absolutely amazing to work with and created a truly one-of-a kind keepsake for us.

We now have such a beautiful customized piece of art to hang in our home that is such a special reminder of our wedding day. We cannot recommend Emily enough, you won't regret it!"


"I truly can't say enough good things about Emily! She is incredibly fun and easy to work with and is such a kind person.

She did a live painting at our wedding and all of our guests absolutely loved it and still talk about what a unique experience it was.

Emily was so great with all the communication and we loved how detail oriented she was with everything in the painting.

The final product is absolutely stunning, Emily is so talented and created a beautiful art piece that we will always cherish. We can't thank her enough."

"It’s hard to explain just how good she makes you feel during the process, it’s something you need to feel for yourself."

"The most beautiful painting of my husband and I during our first dance and I am in love with it, I have no words to express it."

"Emily is absolutely amazing! We had the pleasure of working with Emily at our wedding! We gave her full freedom to paint whatever scene from our wedding ceremony. AND SHE DID NOT DISAPPOINT!

Her talent to literally paint US in a night is insane!! She was a main attraction at our wedding, our guests absolutely loved her work, and were able to watch her paint. Also, just an FYI, she is SUPER COOL and an amazing person to talk to; so friendly and kind!

Even afterwards, she took our painting back to her studio to make it perfect and kept us in communication on the way! Her live art work is one of my best and favourite investments from my wedding! I will 100000% recommend Emily again, and hopefully we can work together again soon!"


"I’m really not one to review, but honestly, Emily is a m a z i n g!
We knew we wanted a photographer, but didn’t like the idea of a videographer for our wedding. I stumbled upon Emily through her instagram (@emilypaintsevents) and I instantly sent her page to my soon-to-be hubby, telling him how unique this would be for our wedding!

It was really no debate that we would hire her for our wedding, and we are so glad we did! She is the sweetest soul, extremely talented at what she does, keeps you completely up to date with the entire process (always posting updates through Instagram which was my favourite), and just handled the entire thing so well.

Sometimes you forget that she can have 20+ paintings “on the go”, because you feel as though she is so invested in your specific piece. It’s hard to explain just how good she makes you feel during the process, it’s something you need to feel for yourself.

If I could give her 100 stars, I would. 100/10 highly recommend having Emily at your wedding/event (or she also does cute Christmas ornaments too)!"


"Emily was phenomenal! Having her paint throughout cocktail hour and dinner was so magical. The painting turned out beautifully and I’m so pleased. If you’re looking for something extra special on your wedding day, book Emily!"


"This is the most special core memory of my wedding and the perfect keepsake for my husband and I.

Emily did the most beautiful painting of my husband and I during our first dance and I am in love with it, I have no words to express it. Emily definitely paints magic, she is such a sweetheart and listens to our wishes and caught every bit of details we wanted. She responds to our questions immediately which is amazing and helpful for new couples!

I would totally recommend Emily to anyone who wants to get a live painter on their special day or any other occasions! Thanks Emily once again from the bottom of our hearts."


"I can’t say enough positive things about Emily! She was the perfect addition to our wedding day. After talking to her I was so excited to have her paint our wedding. She is so friendly and amazingly talented. Everyone was in awe watching her at our wedding and now we have a very special forever keepsake of our first kiss as Husband and Wife. Thank you so much Emily!"


"Emily was the PERFECT choice as our live wedding painter! She has an extremely organized and straight forward online communication system, great response time to our inquiry and questions, really gets into the details that you want portrayed in the painting, and she was very respectful to our different cultural rules/requirements within the temple during the ceremony!

The painting was completed on time as she stated in the initial contract, and not ONE thing went awry with her services. The painting is BEAUTIFUL and is so realistic - it truly does bring back memories of that day. :)

Thank you again Emily for the lovely painting! I highly recommend ALL brides to look into her painting service for your big day!!!"


"Emily captured our big day in such a beautiful, unique way. She captured the scene we wanted and incorporated other parts from the day - including our dog and some doves that we released.

She is so talented! Our guests loved seeing her paint throughout the evening. If you’re looking for a special way to capture your day, Emily is your answer!"


"My husband and I could not be happier with our gorgeous painting. I’m so happy we found Emily and decided to book her for our wedding.

From start to finish she was an absolute joy to work with and our guests (plus ourselves) were astounded by her work.

Top notch, 10/10 stars. If you’re hesitating to book her, don’t! Trust us when we say you won’t regret it. Our painting is beautiful and will be with us for years to come. Thank you again Emily!"



"My (now) wife and I had seen Emily in action at a friends wedding a couple of years ago, it was the first live painter we had ever seen at a wedding.

We thought the idea was very cool and unique, not to mention how talented Emily was.

 I ended up reaching out to Emily during our wedding planning process and was very thankfully she was available for our big day! The plan was to surprise my wife with Emily on our wedding day and we pulled it off, it was perfect!

I reserved Emily about 10-11 months out, we kept in touch once every couple of months including me providing details of where on the property I would like the picture captured for Emily to paint.
She was very communicative, outgoing, and a 'breath of fresh air' to work with compared to other wedding vendors!

I highly recommend Emily for your special occasion, we received many compliments and are thankful for the beautiful painting hanging in our family!"


"She was very communicative, outgoing, and a 'breath of fresh air' to work with compared to other wedding vendors!"

"We decided to hire Emily for our wedding after seeing a live painter at our friends wedding and we were so glad we did!

Emily was very professional during our meetings and was always quick to respond to any inquiries we had leading up to our big day.

My husband's father passed away this year and we wanted to incorporate him in our wedding even though he wasn't physically there, the painting depicted him like he was right there with us for our special moment.

Our family and friends were so impressed and moved by the painting, and the talent that Emily showed was unmatched! It was a beautiful touch to our wedding and now we will have it in our home to cherish forever."


"My husband and I commissioned Emily to paint our October wedding and it was one of the best wedding decisions we made!

Not only is Emily one of the nicest people to exist… her painting of us is amazing. The communication from her prior to, during and after our wedding was amazing and made us feel so comfortable through all the chaos of a wedding.

Our guests STILL talk about how incredible the painting was and how they loved watching her create. If you are planning a wedding, Emily is a MUST HAVE for your day!! Thank you again so much Emily!!"
