First off I’m going to say that 5 stars isn’t even close to enough of how many stars I would like to give. Erika, you are INCREDIBLE! Every single one of my photos is absolutely breathtaking and stunning. You made Matteo and I feel so comfortable during the whole entire engagement shoot. The talent you have is unreal and I couldn’t imagine having anyone else to capture all those precious moments for us. Thank you a million times! I am so happy with my photos!! Love always, Marina and Matteo More...

It was truly a privilege getting to know Erika through our wedding planning process. I am NOTORIOUSLY uncomfortable with photos, but Erika makes you feel so incredibly comfortable it soon becomes a breeze. At our wedding last weekend our videographers noted “you guys are naturals at this” - I can confidently say that it was thanks to our engagement photo session with Erika we both felt so comfortable in front of cameras. The bright, airy quality of her photos completely make me swoon. She’s a true talent and a super nice person to top it off! More...

Erika is such an incredible photographer and more importantly a greater person! We did our engagement photo shoot as well as our wedding photos with her, and we were blown away with the result! Her vision for fun, relaxed, natural images really showed during our photo sessions. At no point did we feel awkward or uncomfortable during our photo shoots! She really does have a gift for creating the perfect shot. I 100% recommend Erika to anyone! You WILL NOT be disappointed. Thank you for the memories Erika!Rob and Hilary More...

I met Erika through my wedding planner. Didn't know her beforehand but had to place all my trust in her for my big day. She killed it! She understood exactly what we were looking for and was able to generate really cool and fun photos without much to work with. We were pressed for time and backdrops, but she made it work so well. I was shocked to see the final photos. They are absolutely AMAZING!I highly recommend her for any special occasion that requires photos. More...

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Erika at weddings and she is super professional but connects with all of her clients so that she is able to truly capture the essence of their story and love. You can always see their personalities shining through Erika’s photos and that is not something every photographer is able to do! Definitely recommend hiring her for your wedding, special event or branding! More...

Thank you Gael and Shanelle for helping us with our wedding! Gael and Shanelle did a seamless job helping us plan our wedding last Aug 17th. Our first meeting with Gael was an eye opener that we really needed their help! She's organized, calm under pressure and creative. She's passionate at what she does and we think that's really important. Gael and Shanelle also did the decorations for our venue. They listened to the vision we had and we were amazed at how beautiful they made the venue looked. They even did a revision of our intended style and made it look 10x better! We couldn't ask for a better wedding coordinator than Gael and Shanelle! Planning a wedding is overwhelming but they made it so easy for us. They took off the pressure from us when it comes to handling the vendors. For those looking for a day-of wedding coordinator or a wedding planner, we definitely recommend them! More...

I found True Mate Weddings online because I couldn’t manage to pull together a wedding on my own. When I met Gael, she made me feel so comfortable handing off most of the decision-making. Which is hard for me because I’m a control freak. She pulled me in when needed, but took the reins and made a lot of decisions without involving me. Every decision she made was exactly what I envisioned for our special day. She really hit he nail on the head.

The day of our wedding, there were a number of issues that came up. Unbeknownst to Gael and I, the caterer we chose made numerous changes that would have completely thrown off the day. Gael jumped in and took action, hiding most of it from me so I wouldn’t stress. She turned a disaster waiting to happen into an amazing party. If it weren’t for the hard work and dedication of Gael and her team, our wedding day would have been ruined.

Gael’s attention to detail and care for her clients is outstanding. I highly recommend Gael for any party planning as she knows what she’s doing and can do it better than most. So glad I chose her.

Gael did the day-of coordination for our wedding in June and we are SO happy we chose her! I didn't have to worry or think about anything on the day... Gael had everything under control and made it stress free for me (every Brides dream!). She set up the signs for the ceremony exactly where I wanted them (We got married in a forest) and set up the ceremony with the cross perfectly. She showed up early to help organize the morning of and stayed throughout the reception, helping us with our entrances and making sure everything went smoothly. The welcome table and decor was also set up beautifully, she has a great eye for styling I would definitely recommend her to any bride looking for a wedding planner. (She also makes amazing vegan cupcakes and provided them for our wedding too!). Thank you Gael & Calder for making our day perfect!! More...

I don’t even know where to begin with how amazing Erika and her second shooter, Rachel were. They both went above and beyond what we could have imagined. Erika is so easy going, and great to work with, we had so much fun, and she made us all laugh with her bubbly personality. Everything felt natural, and she directed us beautifully. We just received our previews and holy S*** they are stunning. Her personal editing style is so incredible, the light and airy look is breath taking, and I just love that all the photos have that touch. I cannot wait for the rest. I would recommend Erika, to anyone who wants a happy, fun spirited, professional photographer that is amazing at what she does. The best, hands down!!! More...

If I could give her a sixth and seventh and eighth star, I would...Erika did photos for my husband and I with our newborn - what an amazing experience! The pictures turned out incredible and she was an absolute dream of a photographer to work with. I was a little nervous about my less-than-camera-ready post-partum body being in front of the camera, but she was so awesome to work with that all of that insecurity disappeared after the first few minutes of chatting with her :-) She did an incredible job of capturing the love and joy my husband and I share over the birth of our little boy...the pictures are stunning! The only problem now is how hard it's going to be to pick which pictures to put up first because they're all so gorgeous! More...

I can’t even begin to describe how great it was working with Erika! Such a sweet and kind person. And very professional as well! A great combo. Her photos are amazing, I was pleasantly shocked. I am not a photogenic person at all and had a baby a couple of months before my wedding but she took such beautiful shots. If I could give 10 stars I would! Get her ASAP!! More...

Engagement Session and Our Wedding Day were both times we were so lucky to have had Erika Alvarenga as our photographer. Her patience, support, photography skills along with her passion to capture love in all forms, has given us more then photos to cherish but an experience we get to relive each time we see each picture. During each session Erika captured our personalities, visions and love story so beautifully. Her positivity and encouragement had us and family members feeling so comfortable and natural in front of the camera.Erika was really dedicated to us and always was quick in assisting us in anyway. The presentation of our galleries was stunning and truly showed her talents. Amazing creativity!Cant wait to have Erika as my life long photographer as her kindness, beautiful work along with professionalism creates for only positive life memories for any life event. More...

I'm a photographer who works with Gael often, she not only is an amazing planner who keeps everything well organized and running smoothly, but she is also very creative, professional, and most importantly she makes everyone's day light up just being in her warm, friendly & kind presence! She loves to serve her clients and their guests and truly treats them as family! More...

Erika was able to capture our family so perfectly! It was a joy to meet her and work with her. Anyone who is able to photograph a hungry, grumpy newborn yet have the photos make him look contented has a true talent! We love every picture!

Our family had the pleasure on three occasions to have Erika photograph members of our growing brood. Each experience was fantastic not only is she a talented photographer and truly the beauty of the pictures speak for themselves but her beautiful personality and soul allows her to connect to her subjects. She makes everyone comfortable and somehow always manages to let their true personalities shine through. When shooting my daughter and toddler grandson she captured their pure joy of life and love of being together. The maternity shoot involving my son and daughter in law showcased not only a growing bump but the true core of their relationship of laughter, playfulness, love and friendship. Not an easy task with my camera shy son! After the arrival of the above mentioned bump Erika took amazing newborn pictures of our new grand daughter, son and daughter in law where you could truly feel the love emanating from the new family. Words cannot properly express what a wonderful experience it is to invite Erika into your life to memorize these special moments. We will continue to book Erika for all of our special life events, there is nobody better. Thank you Erika! More...

Terry and I decided last minute to get a photographer, and when I mean last minute, we chose Erika (or Erika chose us ! ) on Thursday, and our wedding was on Monday!!! Talk about crunch time… I didn’t know what to expect with a last minute decision as this, but WOW, we were impressed! Erika was on time, and very professional, and funny!! She made the process of taking pictures an easy one, as if we were all having a good time without us even knowing she was snapping away. And now about the pictures…. Erika’s photographs and her eye to detail is absolutely incredible. These were hands down the BEST pictures and we couldn’t ask for anything more. I am not exaggerating about the pictures, they are AMAZING!!! I would totally recommend Erika for any of your photography needs. Erika, From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for making our day complete along with permanent memories that we will cherish forever. Ruh & Terry More...
