On WeddingWire since 2014

Making my couples happy & spreading more 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 & all the things that make them cool, quirky, warm-hearted, awesome people in order to bring it out in their wedding story - keeps everything exciting and wonderfully amazing!

It's super important for me to get to know the needs and personalities of my couples in addition to their photographic wishes, just so we can truly create photos that speak to them and tell their unique stories. Authenticity is extremely important to me (as well as making sure everyone feels relaxed and has a really fun time while we are shooting!) ~ to me these are also integral parts of my photographic style :).

If you might like to see more of my work and also a little bit more about me, please do feel free to visit my site:

And please do let me know if you have any questions at all! I will be more than 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!

Erin is a wonderful photographer!

Erin is a wonderful photographer! Not only are her photos amazing, she is also an incredible person who truly cares about making people happy. She is super friendly and responsive, and she was so helpful throughout the entire process from our initial meeting to planning and scouting locations to the beautiful photos we received. Erin is such a joy to work with, and we absolutely recommend her!

Erin was such a pleasure to work with! She had so many ideas, and as an awkward couple, it really helped us ease the process. It was really nice to get to meet her first in-person to discuss what we were looking for, and whether she was the right fit for us. She worked with our budget and expectations, and the photos turned out amazing! Such a lovely and friendly person, even our family really liked working with her!

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!
