Ciao! I'm Erika!
I'm an Italian Photographer moved in Virginia in 2012 because of... LOVE!
I express myself best when I to use the magic warm light to capture the most genuine laughs. In my portfolio you will not see static poses or fake smiles. My photos are on the move. They are images of emotions, hugs, kisses ... hands holding each other , teasing glances and sincere smiles. With photography I want to show you your real YOU!

Erika was recommended to my husband and I through a mutual friend. As soon as we looked at her Instagram page we had a good feeling and set up an appointment to meet her; she was very responsive and we arranged a meeting quickly. After our first meeting with Erika we knew we wanted her to photograph our engagement session and our wedding. She was extremely friendly, professional, clearly talented, and reasonably priced. The engagement photos looked like they could be on a magazine cover. She was such a trooper during the process; going to spots we were excited to use as backdrops for our photos, in the freezing-cold January weather. She was very supportive throughout the months leading up to the wedding; checking in, asking about our vision, making sure she knew exactly what we wanted for our big day. We could not be happier with our photos! I still cry when I look at them and can’t wipe the smile off my face. They’re just gorgeous. She caught so many moments that are so meaningful to us. Guests also loved her and commented about how sweet and friendly and accommodating she is. To say we are happy with Erika and our photos is an understatement. Highly recommend her!!Sent on 01/06/2020

Erika is such an amazingly, talented artist- her pictures are truly works of art! She is very responsive prior to the big day, which made my life easier as a bride. She is very easy to get along with and having her document are day was a blast! She also had a quick turnaround with her final edits! She is the best!Sent on 04/20/2020

Apke Photography is the BEST!
Erika, the owner of Apke Photography, is hands down AMAZING. She is so personable and easy to work with. Her work is stunning and truly captures the little moments that you can look back on with a smile. In my first phone call with Erika, she made us feel at ease about getting pictures taken, even though my husband and I are not fans of a camera in our face . She puts together a package to help you prepare for your engagement session/Wedding day. During your sessions with her, she plays games with you to get you to relax. She spends the time to get to know you and your partner and honestly cares about her couples. To top it off she is reasonably priced and super reliable, on time and trustworthy.Sent on 11/18/2019
