Erica truly cares about her clients. She will go above and beyond to help you out and to make sure that you are satisfied with your pictures! Truly captures the best. She knows how to make you feel confident and comfortable!
The photographs are just absolutely breathtaking! Not only did she capture our day perfectly, but it also resulted in a re-connected friendship that I am so thankful for! Erica has an absolute rare talent and I couldn't be happier that we chose her to capture our special day!
You've done the research and thoroughly stalked my instagram and are ready to take things to the next level. Inquire about your date and you'll hear back from me within 48 hours!
I'll send a short questionnaire for you and your fiancé to fill out together so that I can get to know you and your vision for your special day.
I'll send you a customized proposal for you to review once I receive your questionnaire back based on your needs for your wedding day. If you have any questions, concerns or tweaks that you want to make, feel free to email me. If everything looks good to go, you'll be ready to book!
To make things official, I require a 50% deposit and signed contract to secure your date.
In the months leading up to your wedding day, I’ll check in with you to start talking all about the day-of timeline. We’ll also start figuring out all the important details that go into your wedding photography experience, including family portraits, special traditions, family heirlooms and so much more! This is the time when things start to become “real”!
I absolutely love photographing engagement sessions. Your engagement is such a special time in your relationship and one that doesn’t last very long! Capturing those memories so that you can look back on this time of joy and anticipation is an essential part of your wedding photography experience—at least in my opinion! Now, I know what some of you may be thinking… “Erica, we live far away, how are we going to plan an engagement session before our destination wedding?” In this case, we can capture memories on your honeymoon or do a casual pre/post wedding shoot while you're in a dreamy location!
Can you believe it’s actually here?! Your wedding day, the day you say, “I do!” to your best friend and celebrate the life you’re building together. It’s going to be an amazing day, and I’m so honored that I’ll be there right beside you to celebrate and capture each moment, from beginning to end, so that you have memories to last a lifetime!
After your wedding day, while you go on your honeymoon and start settling into married life, I’ll be hard at work curating and editing your images to tell the story of your big day. You’ll receive a sneak peek within 1 week and then you’ll receive a link to your full online gallery within 6-8 weeks where you can view, download, share, and print any of your high resolution digital files.
An intimate affair, typically with no more than 50 guests. They still feature time-honored traditions that make a wedding but on a much smaller scale.
Absolutely! Travel is at the heart of everything I do. My travel fees are calculated per location (flight, car and hotel) and are booked by me. Any wedding within a 50 km radius of Weselberg, Germany has no travel fee. To receive pricing info for your wedding, please fill out the inquiry form found here.
Rather than aiming for a certain number, I focus on creating quality images that tell your story. That said, I average approximately 500 images per wedding. This also depends on the amount of hours of coverage.
I will deliver a sneak peek of your special day within a week of your wedding day. Full wedding galleries are delivered 6-8 weeks following your wedding day.
This is completely up to you! It is an additional cost which is why I leave this up to you. Since I specialize in smaller, more intimate weddings, I do capture a lot of them myself with two camera bodies; however, I’ve also shot many with a second photographer based on the needs of that specific couple’s wedding day. If you would like to discuss it further, feel free to reach out!
A retainer fee of 50% of the total cost and a signed contract are required to reserve your date. The remaining balance is due 30 days prior to the big day.
To me, marriage is a lot like traveling. It’s a never-ending adventure with your best friend. It’s the deepest level of human connection and also about being uncomfortable and humble and striving to learn and understand all about the person to whom you’ve said “I do” to.
A destination micro wedding or elopement is the perfect way to represent all of the adventure that’s ahead of you after your big day. And I am so drawn to photographing each moment of the beginning of that adventure.
My mission as a photographer is to come alongside couples and celebrate their unique love. My goal is to support them through the wonderful-chaos of wedding planning, to walk as far as they want to find the perfect location, and most importantly, to capture each candid moment of the wedding day and preserve those precious, fleeting memories.
