Hi, I'm Erica

Elopement + Wedding Photographer // Owner

I'm 26 years old and I'm a Midwest girl at heart. I grew up in South Dakota and loved every second of my childhood there with my blended family.

I'm introverted at heart, I love to stay in play games and read but that is totally different when I'm working. I'm so comfortable going out of my comfort zone when I'm working it's hard to believe I'm actually introverted.

I thrive on coffee and crime podcasts as I run this little business out of my home. I love being a wedding photographer so much because I get to be creative, meet new people, travel and have full control of the business side of things.

I feel so honored to be a part of the big moments in your life.

How many wedding photos should I expect?

On average, I deliver 35-50 photos per hour of photo coverage at weddings. This number depends on a few factors: which hourly package you choose, how many details you have, if there was travel between locations, if you add a second photographer and so on.


How long after the wedding should I get my photos back?

Typically after your wedding day, you will receive a preview within 1 week of your wedding day. After that, you can expect to get your photos back around 4-12 weeks, depending on the time of year. During the high booking months it can be on the higher end and if you have your wedding during the lower booking months, such as winter, you can expect to get them back around the 4 week mark.

How many hours should I book for my wedding photography?


The most popular hourly coverage for wedding photography would be the 9 hour hour package. This covers most of the events from your day, without having to rush too much. If you have some travel and want time to relax and spend extra time with your guests, the 10 hour package is a great option for you.
