Making everyday an experience to remember is my thing. Whether it's a hike to a backcountry campsite or munchin' on spicy street food in Bangkok - I'm into anything that pushes me outside of my comfort zone. Whatever you want to experience on your day, we can make that happen.

I'm EriN! Your elopement photOgrapher  and experience creatOr

becki + windsor

She had so much enthusiasm for our day, ideas to improve our elopement experience and guidance on our many questions. Not only did Erin take some spectacular photos, she actually performed our wedding, too! We were so excited to have the intimate, adventure experience we hoped for. After the ceremony, my husband even said to me, "that was perfect. That's how all weddings should be." She acted as photographer, officiant, ring bearer, wedding sherpa, gear carrier, wildlife scout and so much more.

alison + kurt

Erin is just the best. She went above and beyond to create a meaningful, highly personalized elopement experience for my now-husband and I. Erin has an intuitive way of bringing the best out of couples, and she created a fun-filled day and captured it beautifully on camera. She has a knack for being attentive but also "invisible," making you feel cared for but also free to focus on your partner.

alicia + anthony

She continued to keep us excited, wishing the day came sooner! She checked in multiple times to ensure she could do everything in her power to make sure the ceremony went perfect and was customized to our liking. Even on the day, we wound up with crazy high winds and sleet but she was all in for weathering the storm with us and had a great attitude and excitement that was unreal!  I would have Erin marry us over and over again! IF YOU'RE QUESTIONING HIRING ERIN OR NOT, HIRE HER! DO IT!

Amanda + brenton

One thing we have found difficult is finding photographers that are willing to spend adventures with us and capture us in our natural element rather than styling shoots and posing us.
Erin encouraged us to just walk the beach and be ourselves. It made it fun and lighthearted, and I think it truly made all the difference in the pictures!!

"Erin was a superstar at making sure what she was capturing was true to us."
