“What will
her wall
look like?”

“What will her wall look like?”

In 1954, two people said “I do” in a small church in rural Minnesota. He was a bagger at the small grocer, and she was the little sister to his buddy. 

From that promise to honor, love and serve came three kids, eleven grandkids, and now grandbabies. That was the starting point of their legacy - September 11, 1954. 

That boy and girl are my Gramps and Grams and their love story sets my heart on fire to document others. While I was growing up, my grandparents had a wall in their home that was covered in photographs. The photos showed bath times, violin recitals, hand-made Halloween costumes and LIVING. 

I think about that wall every time I pick up my camera to photograph one of my brides....


I'm Erika, the oldest sister to five siblings, the mom to two boys, and heart match to a saltwater-loving adrenaline junkie. I've been so fortunate to spend many of my favorite memories near the sea, and I now raise my family by it. 

Growing up with four sisters close in age, I've developed a natural love for all things girly: shopping trips, coffee time and now sister night. I'll always choose pepper over salt, sangria over beer and novels over newspaper. Words of affirmation is my love language and I'm happier with lots of experiences then things. 

But most of all, I believe in walls that are covered in photographs. Not because it will be filled with wedding portraits. I believe in walls covered by the bath times and violin recitals, by family vacations  and the holiday traditions that all happened

I am honored every single time a bride and groom chooses my custom photography. I will no doubt cry behind my camera when your daddy sees you, because I remember when my dad cried walking me down the aisle. When it’s time for the momma and son dance, I’m typically a mess because one day that will be me! I believe in documenting I do and I will. I believe that YOUR story should reflect you and your love. 

It is so important to me that all my brides and grooms know this: I believe in legacies captured in their most sincere and intentional moments because I've been blessed enough to grow up in one and start one of my own. It is my philosophy to make the process easy and actually enjoyable! From picking engagement outfits to choosing vendors, making timelines to managing rowdy groomsmen (hey it happens!) I am there for each couple!

Erika was truly a gem to work with. I could not have asked for a better photographer to work with. She was extremely professional during the sessions and prompt in providing us the photos. Not to mention her photos were beautiful! 

Not only did she capture every special moment of our big day so beautifully, but she was amazing to work with. 
We highly recommend her! She made a stressful process easy!

I was in awe! She was everything we were looking for and more! It wasn't just her photos that I loved, I immediately loved her as a person!

Absolutely Love Her! First time we met, I felt like I had known her forever. Love her approach to photography. Anyone who can get my husband to at least look comfortable on camera, is a magician :) The photos turned out amazing, both our engagement and day of pictures. 

Danny & lauren



She did an absolutely amazing job and she's so personable that you want to keep using her for all your picture needs. She helped me create a timeline so that we knew how the day would go and when it turned into a rainy mess she made sure we got the most amazing pictures that made the rain worth it.
