WELCOME TO 

Erika Mills Photography BLOG

Guys, I am LOVING that my blog has been taken over by maternity sessions! Since that door is closed for me it’s always a treat to chat with soon to be mommas (for the first, second or more time!) about it all! I think it is INCREDIBLE to see what God can and let’s be […]

Have you ever thought what is a guests first inclination of what your day would be like? The thing that sets the tone for it? It is hands down your wedding invitation!! It lets guests have a sneak into your “theme” or “colors” and how formal or relaxed it will be! I love to see […]

  I’ve always been very vocal about being a mom was the one thing I wanted to be when I grew up. I didn’t really care much about anything else except wanting kids. Coming from a large family (I’m the oldest of 6 in case you’re new around here!!) having my own family unit at […]

When Dan’s best man stood to give his speech, he admitted he had so much more he wanted to say but his words were falling short. Today I am sharing the same sentiments about their Marriott Ranch wedding in Hume, Virginia! What a testament to the kind of people Daniel and Katelynn are that they […]

I could hardly believe it going through all these pictures that Kara, the quiet girl from Dance Magic who everyone liked, was now actually a bride and had emailed ME about it! I’m confused how she grew up and I’m still the same age ;D When we were planning their session, Kara really wanted to […]

You might be browsing this post and say, where are all the other wedding photos?? My reply to that is there are none 😉 Courtney and Keith have been married almost three years, but she emailed me that she never really loved her wedding pictures. She wanted images she could love and since her dress […]

I almost didn’t blog this session so I could be in denial that she is a senior in high school. Riley came into my life, blonde bouncing curls, nearly ten years ago as a tap dancer at my mother in law’s dance studio. Right after I got married, I started working for her parents at […]

It is no secret that distance can make the heart grow fonder but let’s be real: sometimes the distance just plain stinks. Meet Daniel & Katelynn, two people who are making the distance work for the short time! Daniel met Katelynn while they were both in college, him studying to go back into the Marines […]

There is something to be said about shooting a wedding in the brutal July heat and when you reminisce on it, the heat is the last thing you remember. I remember walking into Stephanie’s childhood home and her waving frantically with the biggest smile on her face. I’ll always remember her momma telling her she […]

Sunday was the perfect day for a wedding at Portsmouth Woman’s Club. We have been experiencing brutal heat in the Hampton Roads area the past two weeks, which forced Chris and Brittani to move their ceremony inside versus the lawn. I feel like the theme of their day was “be flexible”! These two were so […]

Some days I really, really do not feel like it has been well over 10 years since I attended an orchestra class in high school but sadly it has (like WELL over!) That is where I met Erin, since orchestra wasn’t graded dependent and she is younger than me we still had time together! Imagine […]
