On WeddingWire since 2014

Erin Shimazu Photography is a wedding photography company based in Los Angeles, California.

Making my couples happy & spreading joy in the world is why I'm in love with being a wedding photographer :). Even after all this time, getting to know my couples - seeing their beautiful uniqueness & the things that make them cool, quirky, warm-hearted, awesome people, and bringing this out in their wedding story - keeps everything so exciting and fresh!

This is why I believe it's sooo important for me to take the time to understand their needs and personalities, not only so I will know how to best create photos that speak to them and have that authenticity but also to help make them feel as relaxed and as at home as I possibly can. I actually think that all of this is an integral part of my photographic style and super important to me!

Please do let me know if you have any questions at all, and I will be very happy to answer them! I simply love photography and would be so happy & honored to work with you too :).

Lots of Aloha,
~ e <3

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!

The best photographer!

I would hire Erin over and over and over again for anything I would want professionally photographed! Erin shot both our engagement and wedding photos, and not only was the quality of the photos amazing, she took so much extra time and care to make sure they turned out just as we had envisioned! She is so sweet, professional and fun to work with! She went above and beyond for us, especially because we do not live in California and had to plan everything from afar. Erin scoped out multiple places for our engagement and weddings photos, gave honest and professional feedback and found the most amazing places to take photos! She even found a specific TREE I had seen in pictures in the area but didn't know the location, I was absolutely amazed, she made us feel so special and truly wanted to bring our visions to life :) Her responses were always quick and she was always very organized and took away so much of my stress about getting all the photos we wanted. She worked so well with everyone on the day of the wedding and we have since gotten so many compliments from family and friends about the amazing job she did. We are so beyond thankful for her work and dedication. Any couple would be lucky to have her by their side for their special day! Thank you for everything Erin!!

Absolutely Beautiful, Personalized Wedding Photos!

My husband and I fell in love with Erin's photos on her webpage; her aesthetic is exactly what we wanted for our wedding. Erin is so professional and does absolutely beautiful work but is also so warm, caring and positive. Erin truly wants what is best for the bride and groom; she scheduled a day for the three of us to tour the venue together! She did this so she knew ahead of time where the best shots would be taken and at what times would be best. She is highly detailed and thinks of every possible shot and wants feedback from the bride and groom in terms of what will make their wedding photos special and personalized. It is so rare to find a vendor that truly has the best interest of the bride and groom in mind. We are so incredibly happy with the photos that Erin took at our wedding. They are so beautiful that our friends and family literally gasped when they saw them!

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!
