The only thing that will last beyond your wedding day are your photographs. This is the day where your story begins and these photographs will be the way for you to remember it all. The way he looked when he saw his bride for the first time. The overwhelming joy after you are announced husband and wife. Your dad tearing up during his speech. Nothing will compare to this day and I think it should be honored and celebrated in a way that truly reflects the both of you.

I love going on adventures with couples who love to explore this beautiful world as much as I do. Couples who honor their personailities and don't have a wedding that looks like everyone else's. They value marriage and commitment above all else. And they aren't afraid to be bold and daring

If this sounds like you, let's create something together.

The love that you two have now will grow and change so much in the years to come. Time really will fly by. It's so important to document your love and life as it changes in each season because it will be surprising how easy it is to forget those feelings and memories as life rushes on. Your love when you got engaged, your love after 10 years of marriage, your love after your first child, will be so different in such a beautiful way. Adventure sessions are the perfect way to document your everyday love for each other. 

Whether you want to hike a mountain, go strawberry picking, or sip coffee in your home, let's plan a fun date and I'll bring my camera.

From the moment we discussed our wedding dreams with Erika, her passion and creativity overwhelmed us with so much joy and excitement. We truly felt like our thoughts and ideas weren’t only heard but we had full confidence in what she would make of them. The one thing as a bride that I truly appreciated is how she valued not only capturing the quiet, intimate moments, she created them.

Erika has such a great personality that makes the process fun and allows you to feel comfortable posing! This is what allowed me to truly be myself during our shoot, which then turned into me loving every single shot! I’ve never been happier with how our photos turned out! I plan on using her again in the future and I’d recommend her to anyone!

If you want a generic engagement session don’t come here. Erika is anything but generic. Our engagement session was love, laughter and adventure all rolled into one to make for the best experience we had (only second to our wedding day). We are the most uncomfortable, unphotogenic people and we have never felt more relaxed than in front of her camera. It wasn’t just about getting beautiful pictures, she created an environment where we could soak in our love and excitement for our upcoming nuptials. We honestly forgot she even had a camera. You’ll walk away with not just gorgeous pictures, but a memory you’ll never forget.

As we looked through the photos there was laughter, “aww’s” and tears of joy. They were simply amazing!

Erika is a remarkable photographer with a skill set to match her creative flair. She truly loves what she does and that is evident throughout her work. Her calm and sweet persona helped put my partner and I at ease during our shoot. We were able to have fun and be ourselves and we’re so happy with the results!
