Hi there! My name is Emily Canterbury, and I am a private photo editor for wedding photographers. For four years I had an absolutely wonderful career as a wedding photographer (though I've been in the industry since I was 12), but after getting married in October 2018, I realized I needed to rethink my priorities. I decided to close my photography business and become a full time editor! I still love weddings and all the wonderful people I was able to meet, but spending the weekends with my husband (and someday, our future kiddos!) has become more important. I am so thankful for that season in my life, because it prepared me for where I am right now!

A million percent cannot recommend Emily enough for what she does with her private editing. I used to think private editing was VOODOO and that the work isn't "mine" if someone was editing it for me. WRONG. It's actually quite the opposite. I edit 20% (ish) of the photos I send her, from any and every lighting situation throughout the wedding day. That way, she knows exactly how I would edit a certain situation especially when it comes to lighting, and we all know that's pretty much what the job is on a wedding day, finding the light. She also has my EXACT presets that I use too, which makes it all the more easy. With that said, Emily has NEVER let me down. She has always been SPOT on from day one. I literally can't tell even a teeny remote difference between my own edits and hers. The reason I hired her? I take on 30+ weddings a year, and while it's my full time job, that doesn't mean I am shooting just weddings alone. This is on top of traveling, engagement photos, client meetings, ect. Mental health is SO important to me, and spending time with the people I love the most is #1 ALWAYS. I wanted to stop spending SO much time on the computer editing and more time living life and providing for my clients in other ways for a more well rounded experience. Emily has DRASTICALLY sped my process up and my clients get their galleries back in LIGHTING speed. Like I said, she's SO fast with turn around, consistent, and so understanding of any and everything. I have literally asked her to rush a gallery before and no questions were asked. If you feel like the weight of the world with editing photos is on your shoulders right now and you're reading this, you found your solution. Hire her NOW. WORTH EVERY PENNY. You will NOT regret it.

My husband and I own a white farmhouse on two acres, and we love spending time together on new projects. We are incredibly passionate about farming using regenerative and permaculture practices! We are always adding new animals to the family :) I am absolutely obsessed with dogs, but especially with our German Shepherd, Lincoln!

I have the most wonderful family, and when we’re all able to sit down for dinner together, there is a 100% chance of my 3 sisters and I laughing until our stomachs hurt and mascara is running down our cheeks. I am both an introvert and an extrovert, leaning more heavily towards introvert ;) I really enjoy being around people I love, but I need my down time too. 

I specialize in editing whatever YOU specialize in, and I am obsessed with making sure those horizon lines are straight!! I know there is something so incredibly special about being chosen as the person to capture those soon forgotten moments at a wedding, and I would be so honored to be chosen as the person to edit those moments for you. This would give YOU more time to make special memories with the people you love too! I would absolutely love to meet you, hear your story, and perhaps get the chance to work together!

Giving the editing of your images away it's a bit like giving away your babies... and you need someone that you can trust and can reproduce your brand vision accordingly. Emily has been amazing for my business and has edited all my weddings over the past couple of years so that I can concentrate in growing my business and take some time off with my kids during the week.

Emily is so wonderful! She has given me the ability to enjoy editing again and gain more balance in my life. Emily has been my editor for 2.5 years now. Prior to finding her, I tried out multiple editors and was never able to find someone who gave my images as much attention to detail as I do. Emily does that and always blows me away when she sends back edited galleries. I just received one today and once again she nailed it. She is always so prompt as well and has enabled me to deliver galleries to my clients in record time. So she has not only helped me get time back, but also elevate my client experience. I can't say enough good things about Emily and highly recommend her to anyone needing a private editor!
