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.
"If you’ve never had professional photos like this taken before, you probably have a ton of questions buzzing around your head. What do you wear? Where do you go? How do you pose? Will it be awkward? Relax, we’ve got you covered. I talked to two wedding photographers to find out what to expect for your engagement photos and how to plan for the ultimate photo session."
"Erica Was So Amazing To Work With And She Is So Much More Than A Photographer!
She was so easy to work with and she did an amazing job. When first meeting her she was very down to earth and very personable. When working with her she was the helping hand we didn't know we needed. If you hire Erica you hire not only a photographer you hire someone who will help with anything you need the day of, from getting you water to working with you DJ or caterer to make sure things are happening according to plan. She also was great at hyping us up making us feel good and confident, while making the photos feel comfortable. We can not recommend enough!

What does a wedding day or elopement look like with me? I want to give you a glimpse into what your day would look like when you hire me as your wedding photographer. I'll tell you exactly what you can expect from the minute you book, to your wedding day and what will happen after your wedding.
Initially, I’m hired to follow you around on your wedding day and take your photos. But honestly, I strive to do so much more than that with every wedding I’m hired for. From start to finish, you can count on me to give you advice, help you through the planning process and guide you through any questions or concerns you may have as things come together for your wedding day.
