  • Erika perfectly captured our amazing day! We had a fun first look by the river and then the ceremony and reception in a unique, antique venue. She had the perfect eye to go beyond the standard and fake-looking wedding shots. Erika was able to capture the uniqueness of our space. We received so many compliments on our photographs and had issues picking which picture to put on our thank you notes and to print - there were too many good options. Erika was great to work with and we would definitely hire her again.

  • Sharing our wedding through quality, meaningful, and personal photos was very important to us since there were many who were celebrating with us from afar. We are so happy that we chose Erika for our engagement and wedding photos! She instantly put us at ease while finding different locations and setting up shots. She was proactive and communicative leading up to the wedding, so we knew we’d have no problems day of. She got our photos back super timely and we loved all of them. In fact, everyone who sees them has nothing but compliments. We’d highly recommend Erika to anyone looking for a wedding photographer!

  • Erika was amazing and so helpful in the days/months leading up to our wedding and especially the day of! We had a large party and she managed our entire group and we received our beautiful photos less than two months after the wedding! Thank you Erika!

  • Erika was a joy to work with. When my elopement planning went awry she stepped in with genius ideas, she got to the location early to scout for the best photo opportunities, and she's an all around pleasant person to spend time with. My husband and I have never taken professional photos before and Erika managed to put us at ease and capture many beautiful moments.

Her photos are beyond beautiful and truly are a treasure our families will cherish forever!

  • Erika was such a amazing photographer and person to work with. My husband and I just received our photos this past weekend and we were totally blown away. The photos were above and beyond everything we ever wanted. If you are looking for a kind, caring, personable photographer - Erika is it!

  • Erika and Brandon were amazing! Not only as photographers, but as people. My husband and I found Erika’s work with the help of my sister-in-law, and once we saw her website, we didn’t need to look anywhere else! Though the weather didn’t cooperate with us on our wedding day, and I may have lost my composure for a little bit, Erika and her husband stayed calm, collected and assured us that the photos would turn out beautiful if we just let go of doubts and embraced the night. They were more than right! Our photos turned out beautiful and with such a quick turnaround! We received a sneak peak within a week, and our curated website with over 900 edited pictures, plus a post on her blog was ready in three weeks! They exceeded our expectations, and I cannot say enough good things about Erika and her work!

  • I actually met Erika at my friend's wedding when I was a bridesmaid and loved her style and how comfortable she made us all feel. Naturally, I had to book her for our engagement shoot. Despite some setbacks, like our location being closed, Erika handled it all like a pro, and was so flexible with different locations and captured our playful relationship. My fiance and I never had so much fun taking pictures. She also is super responsive and gave us our gallery crazy early! I cannot recommend her enough!!! Hoping to get her for our wedding in early 2019!

  • My fiancee and I are both a little awkward in front of a camera and Erika put us at completely at ease. My fiancee's grandma was ill and we had requested to have the photos delivered within a short window due the circumstances, Erika did not disappoint. She could not have been more accommodating. She also helped us brainstorm ideas for our engagement session and took the time to get to know us before we actually met for the photo session. We loved working with her.

  • Erika is an amazing photographer to work with. We initially met Erika through my brother and sister-in-law as she was the photographer for their wedding. After seeing their photos and getting to know Erika, we couldn’t wait for her to capture our special day. Throughout the entire process, Erika was helpful, accommodating, and professional. She made us feel comfortable and we could not be happier with how our photographs turned out. She captured our day so perfectly and we will cherish the photographs forever.

  • I cannot say enough great things about Erika. Her photography style is beautiful, shes extremely responsive and just such a pleasure to work with. Booking her as our photographer was one of the best wedding decisions my husband and I made! Starting with our engagement session back in February, Erika drove out from the city to our Chicago suburb while it was snowing. In fact, we had planned the shoot for the day before but Erika let us switch the date last minute so we could get some snow photos. It was her first shoot back from maternity leave and she was still so flexible. It was freezing and Erika stayed with us well over the allotted time to ensure we got wonderful photos. People have told me they are some of the best engagement photos they've ever seen! Erika did just as great, if not even better of a job on the wedding day. We opted to do a second photographer instead of an album and our second shooter was her husband Brandon. There was something really special and comfortin... Read more

  • Erika took such beautiful photos! My fiancé and I booked her to do our engagement photos, and I was so pleased with the quality. Erika was flexible and worked with both of our schedules to set the date of the shoot, and before we arrived, she scouted out locations for us. While taking photos, she struck a nice balance between instructing us on how to pose and also letting us feel natural. Overall, she was very friendly and her photos are so creative. 10/10 would recommend.

  • We can't recommend Erika highly enough, and we also can't stop looking at our digital photo album! We had a two-day, interfaith, intercultural wedding weekend celebration, and Erika was incredibly thoughtful about how she captured and highlighted the most aspects of each day. When we had scheduling snafus, she was patient and understanding and flexible enough to accomodate us. She also managed to capture details and aspects we didn't even know we wanted to remember, and we are so appreciative of that. If you're looking for a photographer who is not only talented, but also cares about how her subjects feel during the process, contact Erika!
