What can I say about Erika?!Erika was the photographer for our wedding in October 2019, but she was so much more on the day. She was so supportive to me (as the very nervous bride) and became an important part of the day, mixing in alongside our friends and family.She captured the day in the informal style we wanted - only the 'posey' shots we requested and then everything else was spontaneous and natural. The pictures we received document the day perfectly from bridal prep to first dance and everything in between.We met with Erika before our wedding and she carefully listened to all we asked for. Nothing was too much trouble at all.The service we received from Erika was faultless. From the pre-wedding communications, to the organisation and efficiency on the day through to the timely return of our photographs - beautiful edited and in both an online wedding album and a memory stick posted out to us.I want to thank Erika SO much on behalf of myself, my husband and our entire family. Everyone we have shared the images with has commented just how talented Erika is and how much she did justice to our day. An amazing lady - would recommend to anyone without a second of hesitation!

We booked Erika for both engagement and wedding day photos. Amazing experience from start to finish, she really knows what she is doing and was great to work with. Can't recommend her highly enough and the pictures she produced are stunning More...

Erika was our photographer for our wedding in September 2019. From the start she was friendly and professional and took time to meet with us and make sure that we had the right package. On the day she was brilliant. We have been at weddings before where the photographer can seem a bit intrusive, but this was absolutely not the case with Erika, and she made everyone feel calm and at ease while clearly putting a lot of thought into her shots, with a nice mixture of posed shots and reportage style. The outcome was an exceptional set of photos which really captured the essence of the day. We would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone else. Thanks so much! More...

I booked in with Erika to have some headshots done and I really couldn't be happier with the results. I'm usually pretty camera-shy but Erika did a fab job of putting me at ease, mainly by making me laugh! I don't think I've ever felt so comfortable in front of a camera. Highly recommended. More...

Thank you so much for capturing our day so perfectly, and for being so lovely and wonderful on the day, it was an absolute pleasure to have you there. You went above and beyond, you helped calm my nerves in the morning with chats about Italy, and you were so lovely and chatty throughout the day with everyone!Most importantly, we absolutely loved the photos, they're amazing and really captured the special moments of the day. The fact we only waited 2 weeks for them is amazing, you are one talented lady! Thank you! Laura & Rich More...

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! More...

Erika shot my wedding and she did it with grace and style. It's only one day and it's pretty special but you don't get much left over after a week. Erika made sure our memories were cemented in stunning shots, touched up like you wouldn't believe, in personalised and well thought out albums that will never date.She listens to what you want and delivers just that but she'll certainly, very gently, talk you out of ridiculous mistakes that you'll regret later. The wisdom she brings to her work is phenomenal and, boy! Does she care about doing a good job! No matter what package you go for, the service and product you get will be worth more than you'll pay.Her personality will bring out the best in your guests and she's like a bride whisperer for calming your jitters.In short Erika made our wedding and we will never in our lifetimes be able to thank her enough.Why are you still reading this?

We chose Erika to cover our wedding at Crook Hall in Durham a few weeks ago, and we're so glad we did - we both hate having our pictures taken and really didn't want staged wedding photos; Erika took the most amazing natural photos of us and our guests that captured the feel of the day so well. She's also just a really lovely chilled person, and she fitted in perfectly with our guests. Our photos are absolutely stunning and a really beautiful record of our day. More...

Erika is the friendliest, most helpful professional photographer we've had the pleasure of coming into contact with. She's not in your face or overly bossy, and likes to get to know you prior to the event so that the pictures do your day justice. Many of our guests commented that she felt like just another guest rather than being a photographer. More...

Erika photographed our wedding on the 6th of October and she was amazing from the day we first went to meet her.

Erika is amazing! She is not only a photographer but like your wedding planner as well! Helping me with my dress and keeping everyone in check! We got married at 5 so there was so little time to squeeze everything in but Erika managed amazingly well! Our pictures are amazing, we really do love them and they are more natural than the posed type which I absolutely love! Thank you so much Erika xxx More...

Well what can I say, Erika is SO much more than a photographer. We don't live local and found Erika by chance and wow are we glad we did. From last minute supplier advice (the day before!) to keeping me the bride calm on the day when something went wrong she was simply amazing. Add to this the fact her photos are something else makes her one of s kind. She really listens to what you want and makes it happen. I couldn't have wished for any more than we got in her.
After one conversation with her you'll know she's the one for you.

Erica photographed our wedding in April and we are thrilled with the results! Our photos are absolutely stunning and have made us feel really special. Erika was brilliant to work with from start to finish - very professional, really clear and happy to answer questions about what her packages include and how they work, and relaxed, reassuring and organised on the day. She is friendly and nice to chat with, but also has a gift for melting into the background when appropriate - there are some beautiful pictures of moments where we didn't even realise she was there. We couldn't be happier and would absolutely recommend her services. Thanks so much Erika! More...

Erika is a genuine, down to earth photographer who listens to what you want and delivers. We are so happy we decided to get a professional photographer for our wedding as it all seems a blur now. It is wonderful to be able to relive the day through beautiful pictures. Several of our guests also commented on how lovely Erika was on the day. Erika is genuinely interested in your story. She takes time to guage your personality which is important to the feel of the photos. Unobtrusive and gracious. Also has great package options and add ons which you can choose but only if you want them.
Fabulous! Just what we wanted. Thank you Erika.

We choose Erika to be our photographer last year, once we had found our wedding venue. We thought Erika's style and personality would really show of the amazing venue Aikwood Tower in Scotland- she really did not let us down.

On the day, Erika arrived in Scotland and was buzzing with energy as she started snapping away getting general shots of the venue. She fits into the wedding party and celebrations well and you barely even notice she is there at times.

Both myself and my husband are not the most photogenic, and usually hide from the cameras, but Erika quickly put us at ease. We choose Erika for the journalistic style as we didn't want to have lots of posed shots and we feel that we definitely made the right choice.

Erika manages to capture your personalities and the atmosphere. We are absolutely blown away by the images captured and couldn't ask for anything more.

As for the turn around for the images- she blew our expectations out the window. We received the initial images two weeks after our wedding while still on our honeymoon and the finished USB arrived the day before we returned from our honeymoon. We couldn't have asked for anything more!

Thank you Erika for being part of our day and for managing to capture our memories forever. You did an amazing job!

We have had two photoshoots featured in ETC magazine north east which we are very proud of and i cant wait to work with her on future projects.

Erika has been absolutely fantastic, from the start of our journey with her right up until getting our pictures of our big day. We enjoyed our engagement shoot with Erika and she did an amazing job making us comfortable and planning our important wedding shots.On our wedding day she took care of all the shots we asked for as well as capturing so many (and varied) candid shots of our guests, making for some funny and moving memories. We would recommend Erika unreservedly and will definitely look for an excuse to have her work with us again! Thanks so much from Ella and Jonny More...

Thank you Erika for looking after us, for fitting in so well with all our guests and for capturing our day so beautifully! More...

Erika is not only a very talented photographer who captures and creates stunning memorable photographs she is also very professional and friendly. As a wedding florist I have found her to be one of the most approachable photographers in the industry, not only was she willing to allow me to share some of the images she had taken of my work she also sent me various file sizes of all of the photographs that showed my work off at its best, which there were a lot! For any couple looking for a wedding photographer Erika comes highly recommended by me and I hope to work with her again in the future. Amy - Thoughts of You Wedding Flowers More...

We had the pleasure of Erika as our Wedding photographer on 18th March this year, we chose Erika after she shot our friends wedding in 2015. She is an absolute dream to work with, I could not recommend her more! From arriving on the morning Erika was not only snapping away but being so helpful doing dresses up helping to fasten/fix bracelets, and throughout the whole day! We've had so many comments from guests how fantastic she was (at both photography and just generally as a person!) The photos are absolutely perfect and I can't stop looking at them, Erika manages to capture moments so naturally and it's just amazing! Thank you Erika xxx More...

I can’t recommend the lovely Erika enough. She was amazing throughout the whole day. She is so professional, kept everyone in line whilst also being so approachable and helpful. She not only took photos through the whole day but helped with getting ready, organising things in the day and kept everyone calm! She also has the best Marys Poppins bag full of all kinds of useful things. Thanks a Erika for being part of the day and I hope the chickens are all ok. More...

If you're getting married and you both absolutely hate having your picture taken, you need to hire Erika! We chose her to cover our wedding at Crook Hall in Durham earlier this month and she was so chilled and lovely and made us and our guests feel so comfortable. As well as taking fantastic candid, natural photos of us and our guests that really captured the feel of the day, Erika took so many creative and beautiful shots of our venue, and she captured so many little details of the day and our ceremony without us even realising.
As well as being a hugely talented photographer she's also a genuinely lovely person, and we're so happy she was part of our day.

We definitely made the best choice choosing Erika to photograph our wedding! Erika is so professional but you barely know she is there, it was Luke having another friend at the wedding! She worked so well alongside our videographer and their ideas just bounced off each other, the day felt like it shot itself. Extremely laid back and so much fun! We had a blast riding down to the beach to take extra pics and video. Erika, you are awesome and we can't wait to see our pics. More...

We chose Erika to cover our 10th wedding anniversary renewal of wedding vows in December 2017. And how happy are we that we did. Erika was with us throughout the day from us leaving to go to the Church and then to the reception afterwards. We have stunning photos and yet never really seemed to notice that she was there. The Church photos of the service are wonderful. All those beautiful memories of that day are now captured to re-visit at any time thanks to her skill. What a lovely lady and I would not hesitate to recommend her photography. We said of that day that it was picture perfect, in a frame and wrapped with a bow of love and Erika was a major contributor to this. Thank you Muchly. Carole and Phil (Washington) :) (Y) More...

We used Erika for our wedding and it was truly the best decision we made! The reportage style really captured our experience of the day and Erika was so friendly and skilled at putting our guests at ease that it felt like we had a friend doing the photos. She was very reasonably priced and provided a much more personal service than you’d get from some of the bigger companies. We loved all of our photos which she edited together to make a gorgeous photo album. We were very involved in all decisions and she ensured everything ran smoothly on the day. 100% would recommend her! More...
