Erika is extremely professional and great at what she does! A week before the wedding, Erika had a slight accident and broke her elbow. Needless to say we were a little worried if she would still be able to cover our wedding. She not only covered our entire wedding day, but she did an awesome job too! She even got a second shooter free of charge. We loved her and so did our families!

We have known Erika for a long time and couldn't picture anybody else as our photographer. We were so lucky that she had an opening on the day of our wedding because we had a pretty fast engagement. She was so helpful in planning out the dates of the shoot and went above and beyond for each photo session. Erika makes you feel comfortable and the images we got we will treasure forever! Thanks Erika for capturing our big day and giving us gorgeous pictures to remember it by.

We were planning our wedding out of state so we found Ericka's website and immediately fell in love with her style of photography and the photos reflected the emotions of each event so perfectly you felt like you were there in person. We had several phone calls and plenty of emails with Ericka and she was always professional and responsive to all of our questions. She was such a joy to have at the wedding and our second photographer was too. They fit in well with the bridal party and our guests. Our photos came back and looking back on them I am amazed at how wonderful they all turned out. I cried as I looked back at our first look photos because the emotion on our faces were so real that I felt I was standing back there that day. We have had so many compliments on the photos and how beautiful everything turned out. There is nothing we would change about it and are so happy that we chose Ericka to capture our special day.

Happy MOB
Wedding:

5.0/5.0
Erika is an artist. She thinks and shoots completely outside of the box. I am the MOB (mother of the bride) and my daughter's wedding was June 5, 2011. The journey with Erika was more than I could have hoped for. Check out her website and you will see what I mean. One shot in particular came from the Engagement session. She balanced on a log and shot the most amazing picture of Ben and Jessica sitting on a dock yet captured a perfect reflection of them in the water. It is stunning. She sees light and background in a way that captures non "posed" pictures. I am so very thankful that my daughter chose Erika Dotson Photography....here I am 4 months later and I can still feel the moments through the pictures she captured. What a blessing!!!!

Beyond her abililties, she is professional, and very easy to work with. She was always on time and did not even break a sweat when what we all thought was to be a normal "First Dance"....was a surprise choreographed hip hop dance. She calmly changed position and captured some amazing action shots!

If you are looking for a photographer that shoots beyond the expected posed photos, Erika Dotson is your girl.

Erika is simply amazing. She was so helpful, and really worked with us to get exactly what we wanted. We had some unexpected issues arise the week of the wedding, and some of our parents couldn't make it to the wedding. Erika took what could have been a sad wedding day and turned everything to cheer. She took beautiful photos that we will cherish for a lifetime, and we're able to share those with our family that couldn't make it and they can really see our 'story.' Thank you SO much to Erika. We would definitely recommend her to anyone!

Kezia Tunnel of Erikaliz Photography was amazing! We didn't meet Erika until the wedding day, but she was just as fabulous! The quality and style of the pictures produced from Erikaliz Photography are phenomenal. Kezia took a lot of time to make our pictures outstanding! We won an engagement session from them at a bridal fair, and I went into it thinking our pictures would be ordinary. I was totally wrong when we received them back! They were so incredible, we decided we had to have Kezia shoot our wedding! I am so glad we chose Erikaliz Photography, because our pictures were absolutely beautiful! I wouldn't recommend anyone else to do your wedding pictures! It has to be Erikaliz Photography!

I had no worries on my wedding day! Everything was taken care of and Erika Liz Photography definately went beyond my expectations! They were usually available and if they didn't answer they would call back within 24 hours. I really appreciated having the two girls to contact with all my worries. They are very down to earth and able to handle everything we threw at them. It only took 2 weeks to get my pictures back and they said it would be at least 3!!!! They were amazing!!! If you want individualized pictures I recommend Erika Liz Photography for everything! THANKS!
