to make everyone I meet feel like a freaking celebrity

to create imagery that surpasses more than just time and trends

to eternalize moments that will become your favorite  heirlooms


I wasn't one of the cool kids who was born with a camera in her hand, but I have always been creative. I know I wanted to create art and make a difference in the world when I was a kid, so I got my Bachelors in Marketing. It was the only "real-paying-job" that allowed for creativity so I was all in. HAHA. Oh man, Corporate America does not leave much room for creativity lol. BUT it was one of those amazing experiences that put me exactly where I wanted to be. A couple of months running AD campaigns for big companies such as In-N-Out and Coca Cola forced me into the visual world of social media. Next thing I know, I'm picking up a camera to create ad content for various campaigns. Apparently, I was pretty good at it because campaigns turned into portraits, portraits turned into couples, and couples turned in weddings. Needless to say, LOVED IT ALL, and quit my corporate gig to be a full-time photographer. That was 6 years ago and I've never looked back. 

I'm the wild one, the ultimate hype girl, the professional boss running the show, and the creative photojournalist making magic out of the ordinary. I like my photos like I like my life: adventurous, colorful, carefree, meaningful,
a little crazy, and hella bougie.

Seriously, Erica cease to amaze me every time! Her work is so good! This is one talented woman. I get so many compliments on her work, she’s the one that makes us look good! We just got our wedding pictures and OH MY GOD there are absolutely no words of how obsessed and thankful I am that choose her for my big day. She knows the angles, the editing, poses literally the girl knows it all. As well as her work, her personality is just so sweet and comforting! She makes you feel at home

I was referred to Erica by another photographer and I was honestly so excited she referred me as I had already been stalking Erica’s IG. I reached out about doing a breastfeeding shoot for #BlackBreastfeedingWeek and when I say, she delivered. She DELIVEREDT!
I have worked with many photographers and Erica is one of the BEST. Her personality is infectious, she is kind and fun and her work speaks for itself. I can’t wait to work with her again. If you haven’t booked with her, what’re you waiting for?

My wife Emily and I could not recommend Erica more. She was our wedding photographer and perfectly captured our day. She was easy to work with and fun to be around. She put us at ease with her kindness and sense of humor. Our only downside was having too many amazing pictures to choose from. What a problem to have. She was thoughtful and creative and we will cherish her pictures forever. We loved her so much we asked her to shoot family photos for my sisters family

did we just become
best friends?
