Erin's work really spoke to us--it was simple yet beautiful and artistic. We particularly loved how she captured light in her pictures. Erin's easygoing, relaxed and positive energy is contagious, and we had a blast taking photos with her throughout the day. Our pictures are gorgeous, and we will cherish the beautiful and hilarious moments that Erin managed to perfectly capture for years to come. We couldn't have found a better photographer, or nicer person, to share in our wedding day.

Erin truly looks at each and every wedding from a personal perspective and works extremely hard to make sure she captures every moment and provides the client with the best memories she possibly can. My wedding was no exception. She captured moments that we will always be able to look back on and told a story of our day that was honest, real, and beautiful. We can't thank her enough for the amazing work she did and wouldn't have changed a single thing.

Erin made everything so easy. She was great at managing our friends and family when needed, and captured truly amazing photos while somehow managing to make it seem like she was behind the scenes!

We just recently received our photos and both my husband and I, both our families and all of our friends are obsessed with the photos. They turned out so beautifully and all our friends and family have said they just have a more artistic look and feel than any other wedding photos they have seen before, and we could not agree more!
