    I am so happy we picked Erika to take our pictures. My husband and I both don't like having our pictures taken and she was able to make it enjoyable for us. She certainly helped make the day more relaxed and fun :)

    Amazing photographer! Makes you feel like you've known her forever. The best family photos we've ever had taken. You'd be crazy not to have Erika Rice do your photos!

    Erika was fantastic. I had a little DIY backyard wedding, and when Erika arrived to start taking photos at the time we’d agreed upon, I was still scrambling to get all of the set up done and wasn’t nearly ready to be photographed. I felt terrible, but Erika had such a good attitude, and jumped right in and started helping set up the dessert table. I was so appreciative of her kindness and flexibility. When I had trouble pinning on my groom’s boutonniere, she even helped with that. When it did come time to start taking photos, Erika was wonderful at getting shots quickly so that we didn’t have to spend a lot of time standing around and posing awkwardly. My husband, who hates having his picture taken, was especially pleased with this. Near the end of the wedding, my husband remarked that Erika “felt like one of our friends,” rather than a photographer who we’d only just met! Our photos ended up colorful and lighthearted, and really reflected the style and feel of our wedding.

    Erika is wonderful!! We hired her for our upcoming wedding and also had her do our engagement pictures. From the beginning Erika was professional and prompt in our communication. She was easy to set up meetings with and accommodated the date we needed for our engagement pictures due to us living out of town. My fiance generally does NOT photograph well but she got wonderful shots of us. She was also flexible and helped us execute any picture ideas we had. Very much looking forward to her shooting our wedding!

    Best Photographer EVER!!! Erika was amazing!!! The Husband guy and I are NOT the most photogenic people...not gonna lie, can't keep a straight face for our LIVES! But she was STILL able to capture super romantic moments without our goofy faces ruining it!!! I am constantly recommending her now to friends with Wedding's coming up...she is AWESOME!!! :)

    So often, I have felt uncomfortable with photographers. It's always, "Chin up, look that way, eyes here, move your hand to the left". Erika is nothing like those photographers. She really puts you at ease. She understands that no one likes to look 'posed', and while she will recommend particular situations for you and your groom, they are very cute and she doesn't over-do the directions. That way, we ended up looking very natural! Erika has done our engagement photos, and I am SO excited for our wedding, because I do not have to worry about an awkward photographer. Even my fiance, who is not a photography person, is very comfortable and at ease with Erika.
    Really, it's like getting awesome pictures from a friend, rather than some over-priced all-business photog.

    I spoke with many photographers when I started to plan my big day and Erika out did herself!!!! I worked midnights and sent her an email to find out more info about her services and she emailed me back that night!!! I couldn't believe it!!! Then we scheduled a meeting to sit down (cause I had to have a good feel for the person that was going to capture one of the biggest events of my life) and from there it was history. I went home that night and told my now husband i don't care what she costs I want her!!! I loved erikas joyful demeanor, her huge smile and her passion for photography. I was a bride on a budget and Erika worked with me so I was able to get a day full of happiness :) Her professionalism was out of this world. She took so good care of me and my bridal party the day of the wedding. I have for sure found the person that will be taking pictures for me in the future but also I walked away with a great friend!!!!

    Erika is great - for both my daughter and son-in-law's engagement pictures and the "teaser" wedding pictures on Facebook - they were all great. Not only is Erika a great photographer, she is really fun, but can take charge if necessary!

    Erika was great!!! She was so much fun to work with and I loved her sense of humor and joy she had while doing our photography. She did our engagement shoot and wedding day photos. During our engagement shoot she spent more time than she had to...we probably spent 3-4 hours during our engagement shoot and the shoot was only supposed to be 1-2 hours...but she spent more time with us because she was "having so much fun"! Her pricing was very reasonable and the quality of the photos were spectacular! We loved her very much and had so much fun with her on our wedding day as well! Recommend Erika any day!!! :)

    We booked Erika based on her website and we were THRILLED with the service she provided for us! She was very easy to work with and did such a great job. She did such a good job with all of the photos and was very quick at getting the shots all done. She kept us moving and the posed and candid pictures were outstanding. We loved the ability to use the DVD and to make online photobooks. She was very professional but also a lot of fun to be around.

    In addition to being an amazing and professional photographer, one of the best things about Erika is that she really CARES about the couple that she is shooting. She is a loving person that easily turns clients into friends. My husband and I love our wedding pictures and her price tag! She's also extremely flexible. We was totally cool with traveling to a beautiful nearby park in order to get some great couple and wedding party photos. We were so pleased with everything about Erika Rice Photography and are looking forward to working with her again in the near future as we prepare for the arrival of our first child!

    Erica is great! She's very professional and fun. She helped with so many little things at the wedding & rehearsal dinner that were outside of her responsibility. She was flexible with time and had a ton of great ideas. Her prices are unbeatable - you really can't beat them. I've been to and in weddings when the photographer has been really intrusive and kind of in the way - she wasn't like this at all, as the bride I didn't realize she was even there during the big moments (she even brought me snacks & drinks throughout the night, what more could you ask for?). My bridal party LOVED her, the one getting engaged soon will be calling Erika right away to book her.

    Erika provided excellent service and superior photos of our wedding. I had never heard of her before hiring her and was a little nervous, but in the end, there was no need for that. She was very professional, but also very personable. She was very helpful before the wedding - going above and beyond the duties of a photographer. During the wedding, she moved around and got the best shots without being a distraction and without anyone even realizing she was moving around during the ceremony. Our photos were AMAZING and she had a very quick turnaround. I was very pleased with the entire service provided from beginning to end and would recommend Erika Rice Photography to anyone looking for a photographer.

    Erika was wonderful! She took the extra step to make sure that everything was perfect the day of my wedding/ including things she was not even responsible for. She has a wonderful and outgoing personality, which to me says alot about a person and their work. Upon recieving my photos from her I was very impressed with them. I would HIGHLY recommened her to anyone who is looking for an outgoing yet professional photographer.

    Erika was amazing! She went above and beyond to make sure our day went went smooth and had smiling photo opps! She clearly cared about getting great shots taken for us and took her time on details. Not only that, but she even helped my MOH lace up my dress lol.

    You will not find a more fun and easy to work with photographer than Erika!! She put us so at ease with both our engagement session and at our wedding, and the pictures are just so wonderful. She helped so much the day of the wedding with things totally not her job and she felt more like a friend than a "hired vendor." We just can't say enough about her personality and her quality of work. You won't be disappointed :)

    Very disappointed in our pictures. Was expecting much more after seeing her previous work. She did try to correct the problems for us.

    I am unaware of the situation regarding this negative review because they have chosen to remain anonymous. However, I did have a wedding the season that this comment was left that had to be cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. That booking received their money back as well as notice to find another photographer since they did not want to use my contracted partner as is their right. In ten years, there was bound to be one cancellation and emergency, unfortunately, this was it.
