There aren't enough words to explain how amazing Erin is! Not just as a photographer but as a person, it was an amazing experience working with her from the first consultation meeting to our engagement session to the wedding day itself! We really wanted to find someone who could capture us as a couple, and not just the same generic wedding photos and poses you see these days, and Erin completely blew us away. Everyone who has seen our wedding photos has commented on how she captured our personalities. Going through the photos now, they take me right back to the day and I get butterflies all over again, that’s how perfectly she captured each moment. I can’t say enough about how lovely Erin is as well—she has such a sweet, warm, funny demeanor and made us feel completely at ease in front of the camera (which is really saying something because my husband and I are so awkward). I can’t get over how great this experience was, how breathtaking the photos are, and how wonderful it was to have someone as lovely as Erin with us on our big day!Sent on 01/17/2017

Stunning photos, wonderful photographer
Erin was absolutely wonderful! First, her photos are stunning. She can capture such a spectrum of emotion from a couple fully relaxed, to in stitches with laughter, to moving and dramatic. She helped us to feel ourselves, both at are most confident and vulnerable. She is super conscientious--in how she approaches photography and her relationships with her clients. Erin listened for the special moments and roles of our guests in our lives, and photographed them accordingly--making them especially heartwarming too. She shot details beautifully, from my jewelry to the accents and architectural details of our venue. In spite of my too-big nose, I fell for her profile photos, which were ultimately among my many favorites of us.Sent on 04/10/2020
Erin's kind and gentle demeanor helped us to relax, put us and our families at ease , even being a refuge when moments of stress came up. The way she laughed and spoke with us made us feel like we'd known her forever and ultimately gained a new friend. She was generous with her time to ensure she understood what we wanted from our wedding photos, the details that were unique and special to us, like capturing an inside joke. Erin's warmth and positive personality just puts a smile on your face. She asked us questions along the way and always answered ours promptly and thoroughly. Her second shooter for our wedding, Adam, was also really great. He echoed her calmness, ease, attention to detail and ability to capture photography rich with light and emotion--whether in an expression or an elegant cocktail.
Thank you so so much. We would choose you again in a heartbeat and couldn't recommend you more. All the best. C & A

Absolute Pleasure To Work With
Having Erin as our photographer for our wedding day was an absolute pleasure! After communicating with multiple photographers, there was just something about Erin where we instantaneously knew that she was the photographer for us! She made the process so easy that we had everything in place to book her for her services within 2 days! In preparation, she had suggested that we meet prior to the wedding to scout the venue in order to get a better idea of the type of photos we wanted and to provide her creative input as well. Her willingness to meet with us and to also answer any questions we might have had was so helpful in calming our nerves as this was our first professional photoshoot and we definitely didn’t want any of that to show in our pictures. Come the day of our wedding, Erin did exactly that! She made us feel so comfortable and relaxed that no nerves were in sight! Our photos taken after our wedding ceremony throughout the venue was so seamless and enjoyable. When we received our photos, the quality of work was beyond our expectations and every single one was amazing. She was able to capture every special moment that we can relive and cherish for the rest of our lives. Her professionalism, flexibility for last minute changes, and responsiveness during the entire process prior to and on our wedding day made it one of the best experiences and we’re so grateful to have shared this with her. We highly recommend hiring Erin if you’re looking for a great photographer!Sent on 03/09/2020
Erin Shimazu photography was exceptional!Erin was one of the very first vendors to arrive at the venue! She took a lot of time. We arrived early as well and Erin took so much trouble to take so many images of our flowers! The Castle Green at Pasadena, is a historic venue and Erin placed our floral deco in very unique areas of the hotel that made it stand out so well! She has an exceptional eye! We loved her style of photography and would highly recommend her for your special day!
