We could not have asked for a better photographer for our wedding! Since we don't live in Chicago, finding a photographer was going to be tricky. Thank goodness we found Erika. The way she was able to use natural light to create beautiful artistic photos was exactly what we were looking for. After getting in touch, we were able to set up an engagement photo shoot in a week's time. Even though it was last minute, Erika was able to accommodate us on a very cold morning in Milton Lee Olive Park – not a single complaint from her! There was a great mix of nature shots, intimate shots, and cityscape. She had great ideas for how to get exceptional photos, and entertained some of our bad ones (you can tell the difference when you see the album). For the wedding, Erika and her husband/second shooter did a great job both finding a venue for our first-look photos as well as organizing all of the after-ceremony photos. She was professional and made sure that everything ran smoothly. One of our biggest concerns was that whichever photographer we chose would be a focal point ("in the way") during the ceremony and reception. Not only did Erika listen to our concerns, but we BARELY noticed her during the events. If this impacted the kinds of photos she was able to take, we cannot notice. They are all phenomenal. And she was very prompt in getting our edited photos in the online gallery! We cannot recommend Erika enough. We hope she keeps it up, because we'd love to hire her again for any future events.

Erika was a joy to work with. When my elopement planning went awry she stepped in with genius ideas, she got to the location early to scout for the best photo opportunities, and she's an all around pleasant person to spend time with. My husband and I have never taken professional photos before and Erika managed to put us at ease and capture many beautiful moments.

I actually met Erika at my friend's wedding when I was a bridesmaid and loved her style and how comfortable she made us all feel. Naturally, I had to book her for our engagement shoot. Despite some setbacks, like our location being closed, Erika handled it all like a pro, and was so flexible with different locations and captured our playful relationship. My fiance and I never had so much fun taking pictures. She also is super responsive and gave us our gallery crazy early! I cannot recommend her enough!!! Hoping to get her for our wedding in early 2019!
I met Erika over a year ago and was immediately enthralled by her work. She has such a special eye for designing each image artfully while at the same time making her couples feel completely at ease. I met her as a fellow photographer but loved her work so much that I ended up booking her for my own wedding later that year. She delivered our images early and was a joy to have around the day of. She is organized and kind on top of being incredibly talented and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer!
