WELCOME TO 

Erika Mills Photography BLOG

Ah my LAST engagement session of the season!!! What an incredible year it’s been between weddings and 2018 engagements, maternity sessions and the countless other portrait sessions I don’t share here on the blog because I would be a good 5 months behind on blogging! I met Carter when she was in town briefly to […]

With the colder weather approaching, that means engagement and portrait sessions have slowed down so has the blog!! BUT I have two more sessions to share before we close out the year, and this is one of them!! It has been a whirlwind of a year for me and this little photography business. 2018 is […]

Today’s engagement session featuring real life heroes, but duh I am biased. Cayla and Ben are getting married next October at the Historic Post Office but really wanted fall engagements!! They showed up dress to the nines AND gave me the sweetest gift. (Words of affirmation and then gifts are my love language so it […]

I have just been SO blessed with the most incredible couples for 2018 and I am loving all these fall engagement sessions with them!!! You know I am definitely a summer and beach girl but I can’t deny there is something so pretty about that fall glow and the soft muted colors fall brings!! Especially […]

You know the best part about engagement sessions is always finally getting to meet my bride and groom in person (usually!!) but the worst part? It could be another 8-12 months before we see each other again!!! After rescheduling because of a stupid Hurricane wind effect spin off who knows kind of weather, these two […]

When Andrew and Meg started planning their engagement session, she just wanted it to feel like FALL. We originally were hoping for a pumpkin patch but on a Sunday in October all the ones around are either closed or JAM PACKED so we scratched that idea and turned to the newly renovated New Earth Farm. […]

  The forecast had 0% chance of rain and when I pulled up my Dark Sky app while I was standing AT the Founders Inn and still 0% and I was outside in a light mist. I walked into the calmest getting ready room, where Kristen and her girls were relaxing waiting for me! Bopping […]

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 […]

I am so excited these two FINALLY are on my blog! Meghan and Will met when they were both serving together in the US Navy and have been together for years. Will proposed to Meghan after getting his and her family down to his home in Georgia, but she was on to him. She said […]

I cannot believe this day if finally here for me to share on the blog! When I first talked to Kat, I knew we were a fit. We bonded over our love of beauty things and she is one of the most genuine people I have ever met! After spending time with her and Corey […]

It’s not too often that I get to shoot engagements at out of town wedding venues due to scheduling and travel. So I was ecstatic when Ben & Rachel wanted to do their engagements at Rock hill farm, where they’ll wed in 2018!! Rock Hill Farm is a beautiful property situated in the hills of […]

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 […]

If you would have told me two years ago my calendar for 2018 would be FULL of incredible brides and guys who just are totally dreamies, I would have laughed at you but here I sit and jokes on me (thankfully!). Meredith and Erik are one of my couples with Katelyn from Haddy Ever After […]

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 […]
