Welcome to the Blog

I'm Erica a D.C. wedding photographer, with two young children, and a love for organization. Welcome to my small space on the internet where I can share with you special sessions, real weddings, and even little looks into my everyday life. Take a look around, and thanks for stopping by!

I loved every minute of planning and photographing Jack’s Jamestown senior pictures. I first met Jack a few years ago when I photographed his older sister’s engagement portraits. Then I shot his family’s holiday photos that winter. It was so fun catching up with them and seeing how Jack has grown into his element as […]

Real Weddings

One of my favorite trends that has stuck around since Covid is more intimate weddings. These are weddings with guests count less than 50 people.

Christmas Tree Farm photos only get better when you add in a Blue Truck! It’s no secret that the weeks between the start of September through mid-December are some of the busiest weeks in my year.

In fact I’ve hired her as […]

Isn’t the internet just a marvelous thing?  If it wasn’t for the internet I would have never got to meet Felicia & Dan. I wouldn’t have gotten the chance to meet them early on a Monday morning for their destination engagement photos at the D.C. Memorials. This adorable couple LOVES TO TRAVEL and in true […]

Three generations of strong independent women in one photo? Ummm… Yes please! I met Sam last year during my Holiday Mini Sessions. When she reached out to me this year with the idea of generational family photos including her sister, mother, & Gran, I was all in! I have wanted to do a portrait session […]

Surprise wedding proposals are one of my favorite sessions to photograph. From all the detailed planning to being there to document such a magical moment, I love every minute of them. Alec reached out to me with a plan of a sunset proposal at Blackrock Summit on a Friday in November. Our original plan had […]
