About Me

WEDDING, ELOPEMENT, + Portrait PHOTOGRAPHER, BASED IN Ohio But will travel for photos or tacos.

Hi there, I'm Erika Brooke

Just a nerdy girl with a camera whose heart beats fiercely to make magic out of the ordinary.

If you would have told me when I was in college studying law that I would end up traveling the world and capturing love stories for a living, I would have never believed you. (Although you could have spared me several unnecessary degrees and a good amount of student loan debt.) But here I am, and I absolutely could not imagine doing anything else.

I met my husband, Trey, in 2006 when we were 16 at the county fair. We finally tied the knot 9 years later in 2015, and now have 2 beautiful children and 3 fur babies. So if you love dogs, 2000’s music or if you’ve never met a glass of cabernet sauvignon that you didn't like… 

This may be the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

My Approach

If you're just looking for a girl with a fancy camera, you've come to the wrong place. I am not the right photographer for everyone and that is 110% okay. A traditional bride deserves a traditional photographer. My couples? They're adventurers. The laid back, live for the moment kind of people. I believe every detail matters, not just photos of your first dance with your dad, but photos of the tears on your mom's face when she watched the two of you.

Travel list

2023 - 2024

If it wasn't already obvious, travel is a huge part of who I am. I've never been a walker of the well beaten path. I hope to spend the rest of my life en route to places I've never been doing things I was told I'd never do. Want to elope or take photos somewhere magical? *starts frantically packing suitcase* That's my JAM! I'm on my way! This travel schedule is based on current bookings. I'm always updating it so check back often. When I'm not living out of a suitcase you can catch me living in my tree house in Central Ohio.
