IT'S PAID FOR ITSELF

A worthwhile investment

The detail I got from Erika was more than I ever expected.  She really listens and cares about you and is able to understand your business and what you need to do to help yourself out.  She was really open about everything and wasn't afraid to say what I needed to hear.  My bookings are up, I'm getting clients that match me and I'm so confident in my brand now.  I'm so glad I worked with Erika!

PILLAR OF STRENGTH

LIKE WORKING WITH AN OLD FRIEND

Erika and her team are so professional.  Everything from quick answers to our questions to helping us through some of the more stressful parts of our wedding day.  It didn’t feel like we were working with just another “vendor”, it felt like we were working with a friend.

HONEST + PURE

A TRUE REFLECTION OF THE DAY

We didn’t want to look too posed in our photos but we also wanted someone who was comfortable working with people who needed some guidance too.  We feel like “us” when we look at our photos and we were so comfortable the entire day.  I’m so happy with my wedding photos!

INTERVIEW

Q:  Where is your favourite place to capture engagement photos?

A:  This is a frequent question by clients but it’s so hard to narrow it down to just one answer!  I think there’s the right location for each and every couple; you need to be comfortable in your environment.  If the couple is comfortable and having a good time then I’m a pretty happy photographer.  That being said, I think any location that has some interesting texture, perspectives or architecture as well as good lighting can be so much fun to work in.  What’s more important than the location, though, is the time of day.  Shooting right after the sun rises or right before it sets is the best time of day for photos since the light is perfect at that time.

Q:  What do you recommend for couples who are shy in front of the camera.

A:  The first thing you have to do is choose a photographer that you feel comfortable with.  If you don’t feel a connection with your photographer at time of consult, you probably aren’t going to feel a connection on the shoot day either.  Once you’ve found a photographer you love, choose an engagement photography location that makes you feel comfortable.  Don’t go out of your element.  If you like hiking and picnics then choose a park, trail or waterfall as your photo location.  Finally, embrace the awkward.  Unless you’re a trained model, everyone feels weird in front of a camera – trust me.  Just go with it!

Q:  Why do you think it’s important to take engagement photos?

A:  Very few people take professional pictures anymore; the last time many of us were in front of a camera was for grad photos or when we stood in a friend’s wedding.  Being able to relax while in front of a camera can be difficult for many; taking posing directions can also prove to be awkward for many.  Taking engagement photos lets your “practice” all those awkward moments before the wedding day as well as allows you to get to know your photographer even better and further establish your rapport with them.

Q:  What do you think people should do with their engagement photos?

A: Print them!!  Whether it’s just a 5×7 for your desk at work or a larger wall portrait for your home, printing your photos is a way to decorate your home with amazing memories.
