Micro Wedding + Elopement Photography

Hi, I'm Erika!

I’m a wedding + portrait photographer born, raised, and living in northern New Jersey, but at my absolute happiest when I’m in a cabin in the woods somewhere. My husband and I built our relationship on road trips and weekend getaways to New York state, eventually getting engaged and also married in New York.. so, basically, I *HEART* NY. We now have three little (very silly) kids, who we’re totally obsessed with and think are the best humans ever, though we’re probably a little biased. I’m so lucky.


My photography is relaxed, fun, and happy and I 100% believe that’s how a couple should be on their wedding day. My documentary shooting style and true-to-color editing style create images that show what your wedding day really looked like - a lot of smiles, a lot of happiness. The way I see it - make it official, take some awesome pictures, then celebrate accordingly. I’ve been doing this for 10+ years and will never get tired of documenting each and every way couples decide to marry - you do you, I'm here for it!


A wedding is a celebration, not a performance. If at the end of the day you are married to the one you love, then everything went perfectly


📸🌲😎⛰ 🌈🖤✨

Likes: Good food, chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream, watching TV, swimming, tolerance, respect, positivity, sports, art, lazy Sundays, farmers markets, being outdoors, being low maintenance, horses, puppies, naps


Dislikes: Conflict, cancer, humidity, being sweaty, popcorn, people who lack empathy, disorganization, not getting enough sleep, taking life too seriously, wasting time, cheesy wedding photography trends


While we're working together, my goal is to support you and to have your best interests in mind for your ideal wedding. I want you to feel comfortable with me around, like spending time with any other friend!


I'm a super easy-going person in general, so I get along with mostly anyone. I think this is especially handy for intimate weddings, I always fit right in! If you're looking for the cool, calm, and collected vibe, I'm definitely your girl.


I want to create incredible photos, but beyond that, I want to be as helpful and supportive as I possible can!

comprehensive SHOT LIST

For every wedding and elopement, I work closely my couples to create a detailed timeline and shot list, I always want to be totally prepared. We'll do our homework - through emails, planning calls, and online questionnaires.


I make sure I am super organized, have all the info and know all the VIPs. The last thing you should be doing while getting married is worrying about photography, you should just be enjoying yourselves!

Engagement Session

Engagement sessions are included in my micro wedding coverage and can easily be added or swapped into elopement coverage also. They're a great way for us to get to know each other and for you to get some practice in front of the camera while getting fantastic portraits.


I like to keep sessions easy and fun, I only ask that you two enjoy each other's company and smile - I'll give you some simple direction and take care of the rest!


"SMILE!" - Me, every 2 seconds


The more communication the better! Once you decide to book me, I'll send an email outlining all our steps in working together - and then I'll send reminders to keep us on track and in touch throughout the process.


I'm always available by email if you have any questions along the way, I normally reply to emails within 24 hours. Phone/video calls can be scheduled on my online calendar whenever you need to chat!

The WEdding day

It's time to enjoy your day - and I got your back! The planning is done, I have my plan (and back up plan) and know your expectations, you just need to have fun and get married.


My priority is that your day runs smoothly, so you both can relax and be connected. And, of course, that the photos are awesome and real.
