I promise to always back up my images

The #1 question I recommend every couple getting married asks their photographer is: "How do you backup our photos to make sure they are safe?"

I photograph weddings on a camera with 2 memory card slots, creating a duplicate of each image automatically. At the end of the night, photos are backed up to 2 additional external hard drives + 1 cloud-based location.

+ I PROMISE TO ALWAYS BACK UP my IMAGES

I PROMISE TO ANSWER YOUR EMAILS PROMPTLY

Inquiries receive responses within 1-2 hours. All other emails receive responses within 12-24 hours. I am also available for scheduled phone calls or FaceTime calls to answer questions. 

In short, I won't leave you hanging!

+ I promise to answer your emails promptly

I PROMISE TO DELIVER PHOTOS ON TIME

I deliver sneak peek photos within 1-2 days of any wedding or engagement session. I deliver full galleries from weddings within 30 days, and full galleries from engagement sessions within 14 days. 

No following up, no wondering when you see your photos...just a transparent, easy timeline! Who doesn't love that?

I PROMISE TO MAKE YOU FEEL AT EASE 

One of the most common fears people have about hiring a photographer is, "I'm worried about what to do in front of the camera." I get it, cause S A M E. Before every session/wedding, I send a questionnaire to get to know you better. During photos, we play music while I give you specific invitations and prompts to interact with each other so the experience (and the photos) feels natural and fun. I've got you!

I PROMISE TO BRING A POSITIVE ATTITUDE

My dream is to create demand for better service in the wedding industry. You deserve a team of wedding vendors who is thrilled to serve you throughout your wedding planning process! I want to be a part.

I consider it an honor to be anyone's wedding photographer. I witness sacred moments every weekend. I love my job, and I will show up with genuine excitement on your wedding day, ready for whatever comes!

I promise to help you print your photos

Let’s be real, your grandkids aren’t going to be looking at your wedding photos on your iPhone. Printing your photos can sound like a chore, and a lot of people don’t even know where to get started. The solution? My studio offers custom, heirloom albums designed and printed completely in house. From design to delivery, my team and I take care of everything! These albums are handmade with quality materials and built to last so you and your family can enjoy them for decades.

Frequently Asked Questions

NEXT

PREV

01

Short answer: YES! Engagement sessions are not just warm-up runs for us to get used to each other before the wedding. They are a pause in the wedding planning process. It’s a day for you to slow down, remember why you chose this person, and celebrate your connection. I recommend taking the day to relax and be together, to soak it all in before you even arrive for photos. Lots more info and resources available to you as we start planning yours!

Should we have an engagement session?

02

A second shooter is an assistant photographer who works with me to photograph your wedding day. I only welcome seasoned second photographers who are extremely proficient both technically and stylistically to photograph your wedding day. It’s like having me in two places at once (very convenient if you and your partner are getting ready in separate locations, have a large guest list with many to photograph, etc). I highly recommend all couples hire both me and a second shooter, but we can decide if it's right for you.

What is a second shooter, and do we need one?

03

Good news: You can have me for as many hours as you want! No two weddings are the same. At minimum, I require wedding clients to book me for 7 hours to accurately receive full coverage of your wedding day. You may need a photographer for 12 hours if you have a long wedding day or want rehearsal dinner coverage. When we hop on the phone, we can walk through a sample timeline of your day to see how many hours you need a photographer. For elopements, collections begin at 5 hours.

How many hours should we book you?

04

50-75 photos per hour of coverage. I guarantee a minimum of 500 photos for 8 hours of coverage. Often, more are delivered - I don't hold back! I send every usable image to you (excluding only duplicates or photos where someone is blinking/chewing/not looking their best).

How many photos do we get?

05

Oh gosh yes. Almost every couple says they’re nervous about photos. A big part of the process is getting to know each other. Everything is less awkward when there’s already been some vulnerability and ice-breaking. I create a safe space during our time together by asking you questions and providing you with invitations to interact with one another and hold each other in a way that feels natural and comfortable. One of my biggest strengths is putting you at ease - check out my reviews to confirm!

We’re nervous about being in front of the camera, any tips?

06

Absolutely, yes. Please only hire a photographer who carries insurance, for all our sakes! My gear is insured, too. Happy to provide proof of insurance to your venue upon request!

Do you have liability insurance?

07

Your full wedding gallery will be delivered within 30 days. Sneak peeks usually arrive 1-2 days after the wedding, because who likes waiting? (not me)

When do we get our photos back?

08

Ahh, editing. I edit to ensure lighting is spot-on and the colors are looking vibrant/true to what we saw. Occasionally, I will edit out objects or signs that I consider distracting, though this is not guaranteed (leave it up to my discretion). I like to smooth skin a little for close-ups. The best way I can describe editing is “your photos with a little makeup on.” If you’re looking for someone to heavily edit your body in post, I’m probably not the photographer for you.

Editing! why does it matter and what do you edit?

⭐Rave Reviews⭐

Erin is hands down the absolute best! From the moment we booked her, she made our engagement and wedding feel special and as stress-free as possible. Our engagement and wedding photos are absolutely stunning and we feel very grateful we have these photos to cherish for the rest of our lives. In addition to her excellent work, Erin herself adds so much positivity and thoughtfulness to the entire experience. Our families and friends fell in love with her and were ecstatic to have her as a part of our intimate wedding. I really can't say enough about Erin's amazing work, level of professionalism and organization, and the amount of kindness and thought she'll put into capturing your entire wedding experience. Our wedding would not have been the same without Erin. We can't wait to book her again to capture our lives' next big adventure!

Erin is the best. Period. It's hard for me to really find words to describe this incredible woman and the photos she created for both our wedding and engagement sessions. First of all, Erin runs her business very well. She's a great communicator, up front with pricing and services, and conducts her research to make sure she truly captures you as a couple. Second, she's SO talented. The lighting, composition and editing of the photos is exactly what I was looking for - airy, bright, simple. They don't look over-edited but still have that vividness that makes them look like they should be in a magazine. Lastly, Erin is just an outstanding human. She is kind, funny, goofy, and went the extra mile (actually the extra 200 miles) when we decided to elope after our wedding was cancelled for Covid. Like what?? Without a second thought, she jumped into planning mode and captured the day perfectly. WE LOVE YOU ERIN! And we will cherish these photos and your friendship 5ever.

If you need a photographer YOU MUST BOOK ERIN!!!! I had the incredible experience of having Erin photograph my wedding, and the list of good things I would have to say about her goes on and on. Erin literally BLEW US AWAY. The photos turned out better than we could have ever expected. All of our family members and friends have raved about how AMAZING the photos are and how they look like they belong in a magazine. She captured every moment perfectly and went ABOVE AND BEYOND her job to give us the most perfect photos. On top of this, Erin is an absolute pleasure to work with. She was so supportive and always made us feel comfortable and taken care of. HIGHLY RECOMMENDING HER IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT, and if you don't believe me just take a look at some of her photos! You won't regret booking her!!!!
