I know how important budgets are so I am beyond flattered that you are willing to invest in me. There is so much to consider when planning a wedding and it's completely up to you to decide what to prioritize. This is nothing more than a gentle reminder that you should be willing to invest in your photographs, not despite all the other costs and efforts that go into planning your wedding day, but because of them. It's not just stuff you invest in, but moments and memories. Not just little details, a fancy venue or a pretty dress, but the look in his eyes when he sees you walking towards him for the first time in it. At the end of the day, that's what this is all about, right?
Eventually these precious moments will be all that remains of your wedding day. The photos will be the one thing that get more valuable with every year that passes. That is why you want someone by your side that doesn't take this responsibility lightly. Someone whose work took your breath away the first time you saw it. Not just a person with a camera but someone with a shared vision with whom you click on a personal level and whom you can trust to capture your most precious memories.
If you’ve come this far that means you’re probably about to fill out my contact form, and I can’t wait to hear all the details about what kind of session you’re inquiring for whether it’s for your wedding/ elopement, engagement photos *congrats*, portraits, lifestyle, or boudoir I’m excited to start planning.
Once you reach out I can send over a more detailed pricing guide as well, this way you can select the package that best fits your needs.
This will vary based on the session but all galleries have a 50 image minimum. For wedding galleries you can expect around 100 images per hour of coverage.
The short answer is no. I think you’re perfect just the way you are. I don’t typically use photoshop unless there is something distracting in the photo.
While these are the areas of expertise, I’m always down to run with new ideas and push myself creatively. Have something in mind? I’m all ears!
For all sessions a 50% deposit is due at booking. Remaining balance will be due on shoot day. For weddings a 30% non-refundable deposit is due at booking to secure your date. The remaining balance will be due 30 days prior to your wedding. If you you'd like to break down payments further I'm happy to work with you on a payment schedule that works best for you.
“Erika captured our destination wedding in Italy perfectly. Her energy at the reception, patience for our huge family and how much fun she is to work with is why we loved her so much. Thanks to her we can relive our favorite day with all the emotions we felt, over and over again. She goes that extra mile.. or in our case 5000 extra miles!”
“I’ll let her work speak for itself — simply put, it is beautiful. To me, the work & the person behind the work is what makes a top-notch photographer. From the first 10 minutes of meeting up with Erika to chat about our wedding, I KNEW she was the perfect fit for us. Erika is so personable and actually cares to get to know you as individuals, a couple, and in my experience, a family. Erika goes above and beyond to get the exact shots that you want, and she will constantly communicate with you all day at your wedding to ensure that you are getting every single shot that you want. And, she is seriously just so much fun to hang out with all day, too. You will NOT regret her as your photographer.”
“I reached out to Erika almost a year before my husband purposed and told her I thought the time was coming and block the date for us. That was one of the very few things we both agreed on without question was booking Erika as our photographer. We didn’t even look into any other photographers. The connection Erika creates with her clients is so unique and special. For our wedding day it was extremely important to us that we had a photographer that knew us and what we wanted and would go above and beyond to make sure they took good care of us and she did all of that and more. The memories she captured the emotion everything I will never be able to put into words how full my heart is. I will hold on to these forever and relive our magical day over and over again. I could not personally recommend Erika more… she will always be apart of our family and we will have her here for every milestone to come.”
