About us

-hannah + steve

Erika photographed my wedding, and I could not be happier with her work! She was very thorough leading up to the wedding, having conversations with me about what I was looking for, as well as even travelling to visit the venue to scope out the good shots. The day of the wedding, Erika was very professional, and kept everyone focused for the family/bridal party photos (not an easy task!). What I'm most impressed with was the results of our newlywed photos, they came out beautifully! I seriously could not say enough good things about Erika and would recommend her to anyone I know.


Erika was the glue that held our day together from the early stages of planning and helping us create a timeline to being calm and organized the day of. Erika wanted to know all the little details so she could photograph them. She was very organized when taking family portraits of two huge families. When the night wound down, every single one of my vendors said she was a dream to work with and I couldn’t agree more. We had expectations and she surpassed anything we could have even dreamed of. Thank you for everything! You wouldn’t regret booking Erika.

Erika was an absolutely amazing photographer and you can tell from the get-go that she cares about getting to know her clients and wants to make sure she captures everything about our day that’s important to us. She was patient and kind as she led me though the process of developing a day-of photography timeline and by the time she showed up the morning of our wedding she had every step ready to go and kept us on track and on time. What’s more, she does it in a way that’s comfortable and subtle. And the end product - the photographs! Natural and gorgeous. She has such talent. Thank you, Erika, for everything you did for us!!!

My husband and I cannot say enough thanks to the amazing work that Erika did for us. We did our engagement and wedding photos with her and were blown away by the photos. Our unique style was captured through her work. She is flexible and willing to try different ideas. I couldn't believe how quick her turn around time was with all of the photos! We could not have asked for a better photographer. We cannot wait for our next photo opportunity so we can work with her again - maybe yearly photos are going to be a new thing. Thank you so much!!

Our wedding was extremely small and intimate. Erika didn't just take great care in her attention to detail and captured moments we may have missed, she truly became part of our family. She blended in seamlessly and made the experience one where we could focus on the one thing we were there for, love. We've gone back to Erika over the years for family photos as well, as our family has grown.

-Nick + Jeremy

Erika photographed our wedding and we couldn't ask for better results. Her skill behind the camera is only matched by her kindness and care. She was incredibly professional from start to finish, while also making us feel like an old friend was there immortalizing our big day. We definitely intend to ask Erika for our future photography needs – we know she won't disappoint!

-Dionna and Neil

Erika is a wonderful photographer and person. She helped us feel more comfortable taking photos, something we were nervous about, by including an engagement shoot with our wedding photography package. She is a consummate professional with a warm touch, and her photographs are beautiful. We enjoyed having her as part of our wedding day!

Erika was amazing, she saved us that day. We planned a whole wedding and reception in a week and a half after deciding we weren't going to wait post Covid. Erika was very flexible and receptive during the planning process. We had to change the venue last minute due to weather and she didn't skip a beat. She had helpful suggestions for staging and really captured all the pieces I wanted to remember on that day. Over and above what we expected!

-leslie + logan

We loved working with Erika on our engagement and wedding photographs. She was a real professional and her turn around time for photos was very quick in my opinion. I’ve never had professional photos done and I felt really comfortable working with Erika as soon as I met her! Our wedding photos in the snow were just gorgeous! Thanks, Erika!

-megan + jon

I cannot begin to express how amazing Erika was! Erika shot our wedding 9 months pregnant and even though we kept encouraging her to take a rest, she wouldn't. She was adamant about capturing every moment. And the pictures were everything that I could hope for and more- and there are so many photographs! Our wedding would not have been the same without Erika.

I have to first start by saying I was more than nervous about having pictures taken. My (new!) husband and I are quirky and silly and weird and I thought there was no way anyone could get a good picture. Boy, was I wrong. Erika was quick and organized, communicative and fun, and really listened and understood my fears and made everything work for us. I am more than happy with all our shots and I have been raving to everyone about how fantastic she was. Although I don't have to rave far, as most of my friends and family are finding their own amazing things to say. I cannot wait for my next professional photo opportunity to work with Erika again. Christmas cards? Baby perhaps?! Whatever the reason I will not hesitate to reach out and get on her schedule Thank you so much, Erika!

-maeve + matt

My husband and I cannot rave enough about our experience with Erika for our wedding. From the get-go she was beyond professional and easy to work with. She was more than helpful and offered advice on the timeline for events, which was beyond appreciated. My husband and I got married in Cleveland, and Erika was more than willing to travel to be there, and even made it up for the rehearsal so that she could get to know the venue as she had not shot there before, and wanted to be acquainted with the space before the big day. On the day of our wedding, she helped us keep to our timeline. Without her guidance, the day would certainly not have gone so smoothly. We would sincerely recommend Erika to anyone looking for a photographer as she went above and beyond to provide the best possible experience and final product. She is the best!

Erika was amazing! Even from the beginning, she helped so much with planning out details for the wedding and certain things I should look for, which was a great help especially with having a destination wedding. She always made sure to remind me to pick what I wanted for my wedding and was a champion for what my husband and I were wanting to do. The wedding day itself couldn't have gone any smoother, which was especially possible because of Erika. At her recommendation, we did a first look (we are so happy we did!) She made sure we got all the family pictures we wanted and especially made sure we got all the newlywed portraits we wanted (which meant driving around for a few hours in a national park, thank you!!). She made sure that the pictures felt natural and like "us". I couldn't recommend Erika enough. Thank you for everything :)

I found Erika on my neighborhood's online forum. I reached out to her and we set up a time to meet. This probably sounds very similar to how most brides find their photographers, the only catch was this was an exact month from my impromptu wedding date! Erika did not seem fazed or stressed by this and thankfully was available! She has a professional, take-charge attitude and is extremely detail-oriented and organized. She rolled with our surprise wedding plans and captured it all perfectly. She takes great shots outdoors and indoors. She even did a free engagement shoot with us out in the chilly rain, just to help us get comfortable in front of the camera. I feel so grateful to have found her as our photographer. Not only does she take lovely photos, but she is a lovely person too! You will not regret choosing her to shoot your wedding!
