Wonderful, natural wedding photos
We can’t recommend Erika enough! From our first meeting with her, we knew that she was the right person to cover our wedding. We’re over the moon with our photos and our family and friends love them too!

Fantastic work from start to finish
I can honestly say the best thing to do for your wedding photography is to hire Erika. We had both an engagement and wedding shoot and Erika really knows her stuff and we have amazing pictures and memories of our big day. Erika was great to work with and really knows how to get the best out of the venue and the people. Extremely professional from start to finish and the final images are stunning, cant recommend here enough. Hire her for your wedding and you will not be disappointed.

Excellent wedding photgrapher
Having our wedding photographed professionally, so that we would have a record of our memories to keep forever, was something that really mattered to us. It’s the photographs that will help us remember everything about the day in the years to come. After choosing the venue, this was probably what we felt was the next most important decision to make. When we started looking, a friend from work recommended Erika to us, so we got in touch with her to make an appointment for a chat. We’re both not the type to pose for the camera, and neither really are any of our friends and family. Whilst we liked the idea of capturing some group shots of family and best friends with us on our wedding day (when else is everyone all together?), we really prefer photos that show people naturally, having fun. We also had quite a large number of children coming to our wedding, which was another reason to look for someone who was good at taking natural/spontaneous photos. When we met Erika we both liked her straight away – she’s a really nice person, no airs and graces, just genuine and relaxed. When you’re looking for someone to photograph all the important parts of your big day it needs to be someone you can feel relaxed with – it would be no good having someone you’re not very comfortable with photographing you on your wedding day! Erika showed us some of the work she’s done before and chatted about where we were getting married, what our plans were, and what we wanted in terms of photographs. We felt like she really listened to what was important to us, and could tell she cares about what she does. On the day itself Erika was a star. She helped guide us with different bits and bobs, like how to cut the cake (not as easy as it seems when it’s 3 tiers and everyone’s taking photos!). She even found some sparklers for us as she’d had an idea for some photos of the two of us, outside with the fairy lights behind us. Several of our guests have commented since the wedding that they really liked her. She had the photos edited and ready before we’d even come back from honeymoon – phenomenally fast! Once we’d got back we had a look at them all and they’re really lovely! The usb stick which she put them all on is really nice to keep as well – wooden in a beautiful wooden presentation box. We’d definitely recommend Erika to anyone looking for someone to capture their wedding day. Not only will you have beautiful photos to remember your day by, but you’ll meet a lovely person!

Fun, relaxed wedding photography
We have been lucky enough to work with Erika previously, before the wedding our Bride was so positive about the 'amazing photographer' she had booked and was so excited for the wedding photos. When we met Erika on the wedding day she was very friendly and was continually helping the bride and bridesmaids as well as taking lots of photos. She was unobtrusive and didn't interfere. After the wedding our Bride sent us lots of the stunning shots Erika had taken. When I contacted Erika she was very complimentary of our work and was more than happy for me to use the images. We would reccomend Erika to any Bride or Groom looking for a photographer, the photos from the wedding are stunning and have been used in Your North East Weddig Magazine and online as a real wedding feature.

What is your most memorable wedding?

All weddings are special, there's little touches, speeches, and events from far too many to pick just one.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Relaxed, Friendly, Fun, Emotional, Sneaky!

What about your business are you most proud of?

I love how many bookings I get from people who were guests at weddings I've shot. I think it's a great testament to the work that I do on the day and the photos I produce that people will want me for their own special days.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Ask yourself "will this decision make me happy" with whatever you plan to do. It's easy to get sidetracked by traditions and trends, and lose sight of what you really want.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

I love confetti canons, especially over first dance.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

We meet up to have a chat about the wedding and I get a sense of who you are and what you want from your wedding. A month or two before the big day I ask for a formal shot list and timings to make sure that everything runs smoothly. It's about getting that balance between a plan and reacting to the day so that the spontaneity and fun is kept throughout.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

Just take a little time out with the two of you and your photographer, no distractions, and have fun.

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

A replica of the bride's parents' first kiss photo in exactly the same place 30 years later.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Make sure you have a plan B for if it rains, and make sure you love it as much as plan A.

Describe how you got into photography.

My father was a keen photographer with a great natural eye for a picture. His natural talent and enthusiasm really rubbed off on me.
