My wife and I got married in Napa in March 2013. We paid Erica $4,500.00 to photograph our rehearsal dinner and our wedding. Although Erics's talented artistically, she's been horrendous to work with ever since. Our contract said we'd receive proofs of the pictures within 2-3 months, and the final albums 5 months after the wedding. It took Erica 5 months to get us the proofs. We responded within 7 days of the pictures we wanted in the albums. It's been over 7 months (today is October 4, 2013) and we still don't have our albums. Recently, Erica has stopped responding to our e-mails, texts, and voice messages. What's worse, Erica sent us the proofs of the pictures, videos, etc., on a thumb drive, and the drive is sloppy, disorganized, mislabled, and included pictures from another wedding.

Unfortunately, we paid Erica upfront. So, now I am in the process of filing a lawsuit against her for breach of contract. Additionally, I'm going to ask the court to order Erica to turn over all of our wedding pictures and videos, as I cannot tell from the messy thumb drive if Erica included everything. We had about 10 vendors at our wedding. All of our vendors were great, except Erica. Erica came recommend to us by my wife's friend. Erica photographed my wife's friend's wedding, too, and caused the exact same ordeal. If you are contemplating hiring Erica, do yourself a favor and find someone else. In fact, my wife's cousin is getting married this spring. The cousin asked us for Erica's information. We told the cousin to hire someone else.

Erica’s photos speak for themselves – she is a truly gifted photographer and she makes it look so easy. We booked Erica when she first moved back to NYC and was establishing a business here. I am so happy we found her. Within 3 days of our wedding, we had around 50 edited shots already up on FB and a 4 minute stop motion video that blew us away.

Though we have yet to receive all of our pictures, the work we have seen so far did an amazing job capturing the day. Without telling them, Erica and her assistant Kara (not to mention her new videographers!) grasped onto the dynamics in the room and got great shots of people in their element.

Before our wedding, we had already suggested Erica to friends and got to see her in action as guests a few months before our day. Her style of shooting is def not traditional – very few posed shots and a much more photojournalistic approach. She “dances” with guests, mingles throughout and along the way captures amazing pictures. If you want a more formal approach to wedding photography – Erica may not be for you. She is warm and real and my husband and I now consider her a friend.

Her editing skills are incredible and she makes pictures look like paintings but if that is not your style, she is also adept at natural edits. Her prices are very competitive for NYC and I would expect will increase as she establishes more business in the area given her results.

I wish there was a way to give Erica more then a 5 out of 5 rating! I honestly believe that she is one of the most talented, creative photographers I have been in contact with. My husband and I met with many photographers before we found Erica and we were so discouraged! Then it was like a mircle meeting her!!! Her work speaks for itself, she is just INCREDIBLE!!! And to top it all of, her turn around time is better then anyone! I have friends that waited 6 months to a year for their pictures, we got our proofs less then 2 months after the wedding, and she uploaded pictures the NEXT day to my facebook which makes her a ROCKSTAR in my book!! Oh and did I mention that her prices are UNBEATABLE!! Anyone that lives in the tri-state area and does not look into her is a fool!!!

(we) cannot thank you enough for the wedding photos…to say they’re “amazing” really doesn’t do your work justice. Let me start off by saying that I’m not my #1 fan in photos…but out of the 500 or so shots we have so far…there is NOTHING I would delete. My other self-critic in the family (that would be Mama Bloom) also loves herself in these…which is nothing short of a miracle. You’ve captures the mood, spirit and energy of our wedding flawlessly. Every shot is just “us” - without too much posing or “picture” faces going on. The group shots are amazing and take me right back to that moment. I am so glad we found you and hope that you can keep capturing pictures of our family as it grows (of course, I suppose we should get on it before you become way too famous and expensive for us…ha ha ha ha ha ha)
Thank you again.

Erica is a really good and talented photographer.
Even though she just recently started in a wedding world photography, she knows what she is doing.
The only thing is that she is so busy that she doesn't respond to emails very fast.
You need to remind her or call her. Other then that, the pics are amazing.

I met with Erica what seems to be many moons ago and hired her right away to be my wedding photographer. We ended up having an engagement session and a trash the dress session as well as having her shoot our wedding (all part of her gold package)! We could not be happier in any way. Once we made our commitment to her and got the contract she was always quick to respond to my e-mails and being on a shoot with her was always so fun and easy! Her work speaks for itself, but if you haven't checked it out yet, it is all stunning! I would highly recommend Erica to anyone looking for a wedding photographer, she is young and excited about what she is doing and she does it for a cheaper price and way better than most! She always made me feel beautiful and comfortable and after our final trash the dress shoot I am ready to be a professional dress trasher, it was soooo much fun. Feel free to contact me if there is something you'd like to know that I didn't mention.

Hiring Erica to take pictures was the best wedding decision we made. She's a creative genius. Erica shoots with different lenses, edits in a variety of styles, and honestly, our wedding day looks a lot more beautiful in her photos than it did in real life. She's sweet and funny, will direct you into cute poses if you want her to, and has a great eye for cool props and locations. Her rates are low enough that you should hire her even if you don't live in the Bay Area. We hired her for our Vegas elopement, and she was far superior to any of the local photgraphers, at any price. For additional pics, see this site (ours are the Vegas/Elvis wedding ones) http://flickr.com/photos/ericaberger
