MEET ERICA!

She does absolutely stunning work and she has the most wonderful and comforting personality! 

For us, Erica was the ONLY option! I hate taking photos (and our elopement was the first time we ever took professional photos) and she was so good at directing us as well as making sure we were enjoying our time. Also, she provided us with sooo many suggestions while traveling and gave us an awesome elopement checklist to follow leading up to the big day. Additionally, she was very accommodating to our dogs being with us and included them in the best way, even when one of our goofballs was a little too excited to be there. If you want to feel like your bff is taking your pictures, look no further! She’s the best of the best

Can I give more than 5 stars? Erica is family for us. She has been a part of our story since our elopement. 

When she got there I was freaking out due to a last minute problem and she was a friend to me, she talked to me, made me laugh and forget about the problem and enjoy the moment. She captured all the emotions that were going on when I had my first look with my bridesmaids and my parents through FaceTime. She set up the best spot for our first look. If you are looking for someone to be JUST a photographer, Erica is not for you. Because she will be MORE than that. She will take care of you, be your friend, email or text you asking if you need anything and have fun with you.

When Erica and I finally met in person it felt like I had known her for forever and we just clicked right away.

From day 1 Erica was so easy to work with and flexible, we knew after our first video call with her that she was the photographer we wanted to work with. Finally our wedding day came and Erica was so professional and fun all at the same time, we unfortunately had rain the entire day of the wedding and Erica worked around it and still got the most beautiful and amazing shots, you couldn't even tell it was down pouring! After our time had ended with her she stayed and had fun with us and our guest at our ceremony, which just added to our experience with her! When we got our pictures back I was in tears looking at them, I have never felt so beautiful! The colors were STUNNING, and the pictures were to die for, there wasn't a bad shot in sight!

This chick is so sweet and fun to work with (and obviously mega talented, but the photos speak for themselves!!)"

 My fiancé and I wanted a cool Colorado vibe with our engagement photos, and she DELIVERED. I asked for some suggestions for a mountainous terrain, and she sent over a dozen options with links to her photos previously shot at the locations so we could see what it would actually look like and felt confident we made the right choice on where to do the shoot. We laughed a lot, and Erica prompted us with questions / things to tell one another to get our genuine reactions, smiles, giggles and all the sorts caught on camera. Erica lets you determine the vibe and shots that you want to capture if you have any ideas in particular.  Erica helped guide us through the process and made it SO SO easy for us - and we got AMAZING photos at the end!!
