this is erica ann...

I believe that the first purpose of a work of art is to convey truth and the second is to reveal beauty. I know that might sound a little corny, but there you have it. I’m not interested in a thousand posed pictures, (but maybe ten.) I don’t want you to look back on your event and think, “Oh, I remember when we posed for that and when the photographer made us stand there and then she couldn’t get the flash right so we had to wait for the….” that is not my idea of a successful photoshoot.

My goal is to stay out of the way as much as possible on the day of your event but be there to gently guide you into the best you. (That sounds confusing and grammatically incorrect, but its not, I promise.) Photographing people is my passion because you will never laugh, kiss, or even sneeze the same way twice. I do not only want to simply make a visual record of your day, but help you relive the emotions, beauty and truth in your life when you see the images.


I have had a camera around my neck for seven years and have been shooting weddings since 2006. I graduated from George Fox University, earning a degree in Studio Art with an emphasis in Photography. Read less

Erica was amazing! She is an artist who makes even my bad side look good! My husband and I were blown away by our engagement shoot and didn't know how she could top it until we saw our wedding photos. She works amazing under pressure. My husband was told to be at the venue by 1 due to unforeseen circumstances he showed up at 3 changing our 3 hour photography window into a 1 hour window. I was so concerned that we had lost our photos but she turned it around and I am completely in love with our shots. Not to mention her albums and canvases are truly heirloom quality. Like I said before Erica makes my bad side look good how can you beat that!?

If you're looking for professional, engaging and high quality photos - you want to meet with Erica to discuss your options! She is beyond talented and brings out the best in her subjects (even some of my family members who don't tend to be photogenic). I would recommend her to anyone, from start (engagement session) to finish (completed album), I will have lasting memories through her artistic eye!

Erica takes the best wedding photos I've ever seen. They don't look like "wedding" photos, in fact. They look like professionally commissioned works of art. Erica took our engagement photos, our wedding photos, and some boudoir shots. I loved all of them. I am only giving a 4.5 for value, because I feel like maybe she is a hair on the pricey side, but the truth is, for her quality of work, she may not be high-priced at all. She was very open and flexible about moving dates, changing plans, changing layouts in the photo books, etc. Erica is one of the few people in the world that can so effortlessly and successfully blend her professionalism with her sorta "sure, okay, whatever, let's do it" attitude. The results are truly personal photos. Erica doesn't just take your pictures, she tells your story. Her assistant Kim was also a pleasure to work with. While Erica Ann Photography isn't for super-low-budget brides, you should find other areas to trim expenses so that you can afford her. After everything is said and done, your pictures are what remain of your event, and Erica will make sure they tell your story. Highly recommended.

Erica did a spectacular job shooting my wedding. I really couldn't have asked for anything better. I was able to enjoy my wedding and not worry about whether or not she was getting the shots I wanted. She got everything. She has very reasonable prices and the quality of the prints is just fantastic. I highly recommend Erica!!

Erica really took the time to get to know us and that made things a lot easier. She has a very artistic eye and does things no other photographer would think of. The best part is how natural it was to have her taking photos without us even knowing she was there. A+++

Working with Erica was a dream! I got all of the shots that I wanted, her rates were very reasonable... I really felt like she cared - personally - about my wedding and the way it was captured. Now I have top quality images to commemorate my very special "once-in-a-lifetime" day!

I would HIGHLY recommend her and her services... you won't be sorry!

Erica took amazing photos. We did not want a lot of pictures that were posed and she did a great job of capturing the day naturally. The layout of the photobooks we got was amazing, nothing I had ever seen before and our families loved them. She met with us before the wedding and listened to our likes and dislikes, and we got our pictures back pretty quickly. We got to see them up on a big screen which was cool too!
Erica is so laid back and she helped everything go smoothly!

Erica is not only a great photographer, she is also a great and easy going person.

We were specifically looking for a photographer that would be there to document our intimate wedding but that would not be telling us how to pose and what to do every 5 minutes. We immediately felt comfortable with her, as did our friends.

She captured some great moments and 2 years later, we still look at those photographs with excitement and awe.
