ABOUT

"To me, photographing people is very special. Everybody has a unique story to tell, and it is so wonderful and extremely fun for me to capture this through the lens! Weddings especially are a joy to me since they are an opportunity to glimpse, even for just a day or two, some of the most beautiful sides of human emotion ~ I love the details, being there to capture special moments throughout the day, and to help tell the very special story of my bride and groom. I approach every wedding in a unique and special way, collaborating with my couples in order to try and create photographs that speak to them and make them happy ~ this is the most important thing for me and what keeps photography, even after all these years so exciting and fulfilling :-)." Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, Erin has always been an artist at heart. Starting out as a very little girl drawing alongside her father at his art table, she continued to find joy in drawing and painting, and pursued it as she grew. In college she asked to borrow his old, fully-manual Nikon F film camera, discovered photography, and fell ecstatically in love with it. One of her dreams then became not only to be able to pursue her art, but just as importantly (if not even more so), to use it to try to touch the world in a positive way and to bring joy to others. To realize this, she started her own business as a professional photographer, and she has been shooting weddings ever since! Erin also loves teaching and assists for private photographic workshops, as well as volunteering and shooting for the wonderful folks at Make-A-Wish. She has trained at Art Center College of Design, Otis College of Art and Design, Santa Monica College, and UCLA, and holds a bachelor's degree in Fine Art. When she is not shooting, she still loves painting, attempting to play the guitar and her trusty 'ukulele, dancing hula, and traveling as much as she possibly can.
