Hiring Erica Was The Best Wedding Decision We Made
Our search for a photographer began by looking at pictures of weddings at venues we were considering. We looked through lots of photos this way, and after stumbling upon a wedding Erica shot at Threes Brewing, we knew we had to meet her. We were in awe of how she captures the emotion, energy, and intimate moments of the occasion and loved how bright, colorful, and joyful her art is. Dancing was to be a main focus of our wedding so we also wanted a photographer who could do a sweaty dance party justice – looking through more of Erica’s photos, we knew she could! It took a short, casual meeting with Erica early in the planning process for us to know that she was exactly what we were looking for: someone who is laid back, warm, responsive, not pushy, and who would adapt to our vibe (rather than imposing one herself). Even though Erica was across the world in the winter/spring, she was super responsive and answered all of our questions. Come wedding day, Erica was prompt and flexible and spent time with us in our respective getting-ready locations. She provided great guidance as we took our couple’s portraits and directed us accordingly as she found lighting and portrait opportunities while we walked. During the wedding itself, we rarely noticed Erica, and we mean that in the best way possible – looking at some of the photos, we’re still in awe of how Erica was able to capture certain moments – she found a way to be there while somehow remaining invisible. Erica delivered the photos in a more-than-timely (3 weeks!) manner. Going through them, we could not be happier with how they turned out. They are exactly what we wanted and more and will be a way for us to remember how we felt on this day forever. Erica really caught everything. The emotions she captured are indescribable, the action shots – featuring a series of really cool long exposure ones - of the dance party are so fun, her portraits are beautiful, and the ceremony photos are perfect. Really, the only hard part has been narrowing down our favorites. We cannot recommend Erica highly enough, and we feel so lucky to have worked with her. In working with a photographer, the value of a low stress relationships and knowing that the photos will exceed expectations cannot be understated.Sent on 07/21/2019

Beautiful, warm, heartfelt photography.
Erica is definitely an amazing thoughtful photographer. She captured moments we would not have imagined happened. The photos we received were stunning; making us laugh and cry tears of joy. Every time we look at them we relive our wedding day. The quality of her work is superb.Sent on 11/28/2018

Erica is a magician and a truly talented artist.
We are a queer couple who got married on our tenth anniversary. After having waited that long, we devoted a lot of energy to planning our wedding, and Erica was the first vendor we booked. We found her work online and immediately knew that she was the person we wanted to help capture our memories. We knew we wanted a queer-friendly photographer who could capture the right moments, and Erica proved to be so much more than that. The photos were the most important element of the wedding planning for us, and we couldn't be happier with our decision. Erica was willing to travel from New York to our wedding in small-town Virginia (which reflects both her flexibility and the degree to which we were sure we wanted to work with her).Sent on 01/16/2019
Erica photographed our entire multi-day wedding event, which included a rather unconventional scheduled program with both Hindu and western ceremonies on the day of, as well as a sangeet the night before, Erica was there before the sangeet set-up even started, and stayed till the very end, capturing the most candid moment of the evening with grace and compassion.
On the day of the wedding, she arrived at breakfast time raring to go, and didn't take a break until after the second ceremony, when we reminded her to eat. Her admirable work ethic is only rivaled by her eye for catching the most genuine images. Erica was so tuned into what was happening at every stage of the wedding that she caught so many moments we wouldn't have otherwise remembered, or that we'd viewed from a different vantage, or even that we ourselves missed entirely. Looking at her photos after the wedding has recreated our wedding experience for us, and continues to add new layers to each moment every time we look at them (and that's been a lot!) She had a magical ability to be present everywhere at once, but simultaneously to be nearly imperceptible and completely unobtrusive. Our guests remarked on these qualities, as well. We felt so at ease with Erica, to the point that guests asked how long we'd known her.
In the end, Erica provided us with so many more photographs than we expected, and they were all beautifully edited. We spent an entire weekend absorbed in them when we first received them. None of them are template, run-of-the-mill wedding photos; every single one is a sensitive, creative, energetic, and beautiful representation of our favourite day. We are equally enamoured with the candid portraits of our friends and family as we are with the photos that indulge our own vanity (we will never feel as beautiful as these photos make us feel!). We will cherish these photos forever, and will be proud to show them to our kids and grandkids someday.
When we booked our Erica, we were looking for a passionate, talented and empathetic photography professional. What we got was so much better; we came away with a friend.
