Book SoCal Standard!! What started out as an Instagram follower (for her love of color, aesthetic, and style), turned into our dream wedding photographer. Erica really made the entire wedding party and family at ease and they had a lot of fun during photos. Erica is not just a basic wedding photographer that takes the same basic photos over and over. Erica captures raw emotions and has great attention to detail. She brings the color, the fun, the energy. I was really feeling myself that day! Everything from the poses, atmosphere, and colors/editing. Erica does it all!! You need someone like Erica who is easy going, but also timely and organized. You just let her do her thing and she'll deliver! We love her so much <3

Erica! Understands the assignment and goes above all the visions I have! She make you feel so comfortable and secure! She knows the vibes and the mood! Also, her editing skills are in another level! She ceases to amaze me on every photoshoot. She’s been my family, wedding, maternity photographer etc. Just know that she never disappoints. She’s worth it! And I would recommend her time and time again. Because she truly another energy, that we all need at our photoshoots or anywhere.

Best photographer there is! Creative, fun, and easy to be around. Gem made our wedding day so amazing, my family hasn’t stopped talking about how they’re the best wedding photos they’ve ever seen! “Straight out of a magazine!”
-Grace & Robert

Gem is the best, she flew to Italy with us in 2018 to shoot our wedding and has done our annual photos ever since. She works with you every step of the way from planning the perfect location, esthetic, outfits, everything! She knows how to make you feel comfortable and coach you through the experience and is an incredibly talented artist. So grateful to have her photographs as little capsules through our life.
-Nick & Savannah

We looked far and wide for a wedding photographer that would do justice to the wedding concept we were going for - and in the middle of the desert! As soon as we saw Erica's work, we knew she was the one. To our surprise, not only is she a fantastic photographer, but she is also so much fun to work with! She hiked with us to shoot an epic engagement session, and camped with us to capture every moment of our wedding. She instantly felt like a friend, and that made her being a part of our wedding that much more special. I could not recommend Erica more!
