I’m Starr, wedding, lifestyle and portrait photographer serving Southeast Saskatchewan. I love all things adventure, am always dancing to my soundcloud playlist and lead a full and passionate life!
If everyone has a super power, mine is the ability to bring out the best in people with a camera. To see the extraordinary in everyday life and the life in extraordinary days! I believe that it's one of life's greatest pleasures to make a living from something you love so much and I've been lucky enough to do this since 2009. I love creating beautiful images, but more importantly, I love serving families and individuals in creating stunning portraits. I truly believe pictures are treasures and memories are gold!
TO BE INSPIRED IS GREAT. TO INSPIRE IS INCREDIBLE.
When I’m not behind my camera you can find me a wearing graphic tees, kimonos & kitten heels (to make me taller) while avoiding laundry and re-writing my to-do list. If you ask me, I will tell you the story about how I ended up living in my hometown after a decade in the big city. My favourite color is any shade of green and my best friend and I started as penpals at age 9. My husband and I designed and built our dream home...took 11 months and our marriage survived it. I’m known for finding an excuse to have ice cream with my three outgoing kids almost every day. I'm all about new adventures...summer boat rides, hiking unknown trails and winter sledding. I'm always planning a date night to the movies or painting mixed media art while watching Netflix.
I love the smell of the mountains and the wide open spaces of the prairies. You can find me living-it-up in small town Saskatchewan with one husband, two red heads, a brunette with glasses and an adopted dog name Piper.
I’m starting my 8th season as a professional photographer and this job at times feels like a DREAM! My goal in life is to help people see the best in themselves and capture it.
I just wanted to say THANK YOU for stopping by and taking a peek at my passion, high five if you’ve read this far and I hope we get to meet real soon!
I love all things adventure, West coast vibes and refuse to settle for a mediocre life!
Thunder Mountain Railroad, cotton candy, It’s a Small World, Mickey ice cream treats, holding hands while walking for hours, Tower of Terror and 100% dedicated family time.
BOOK OUR NEXT TRIP TO DISNEY
I travel there every chance I get!
Pack for a weekend trip to the mountains
Starbucks beans + local honey + a splash of almond milk = the perfect cup.
Enjoy a Morning Coffee
There’s nothing like living in ‘the land of the living skies!
The only day of the week our family is all together, which is the best place to be...and we make the best of it.
Pack the backpack for our next Sunday Adventure
There’s always a project on the go around here to make our house a home.
Catching up with my Rock over dinner and then catching a flick at the movie theatre or watching Netflix at home...hangin’ out with this guy is the best.
Book a sitter for date night
It might sound strange, but planning and crossing things off the list in my notebook is so rewarding!
To Do Lists
You could say that my style is a natural...capturing real moments with a hint of lighthearted emotion...this is what defines life & love and really speaks to me as an artist. I also love to suggest playful gestures to evoke movement and then pull back to capture that epic laugh or smile. I love to help my clients and thus have created the Starr Mercer Photography experience. This has me helping you from booking to after your session and spoiling you with goodies along the way. I’m here to give lots of help leading up to your session, wardrobe styling assistance, location planning and help with choosing what print products would look best in your home from your session. I’m there to help every step of the way.
