I fell in love with telling a story through taking pictures. A picture is more than just an image, it captures the essence of a time, a place, a person. The beauty of telling a story in images is in the details, its in capturing the twinkle in your eye, or the way the sun lights your hair. For me, all of this translates into wedding photography. Capturing the love between two people on such a special day is telling a story full of its own details and charm. Wedding photography is the art of telling your story. I love being a part of your special day, I hope to make you feel comfortable, and I want you to have fun. Most of all I want you to have pictures that will make you glow every time you look at them for years to come.

Erika is a joy to work with. She is so easy going and makes taking pictures on your wedding day a breeze and FUN. I just received my wedding photos back from her (in a VERY short period of time!) and they are STUNNING. She is so talented and wonderful!

Erika is a true professional! She managed the hustle and bustle of my wedding day so well and really tuned in to what I wanted captured. Plus, our second shooter, Samantha, was just as great! I was able to see a couple of sneak peak photos and WOW, can't wait to see the final product. I definitely would recommend!!

Erika was great to work with. In the beginning, she was easy to get a hold of and always answered my questions promptly (this was especially important to me, since New Orleans was a destination wedding for us). Her prices were very reasonable, and I feel like we got what we paid for. On the day, she was friendly, relaxed and had great insight as to what would make great photographs. We were really happy with the product, and we received our photographs promptly! I would definitely recommend Erika to other couples getting married in New Orleans!

We knew immediately that Erika was the perfect photographer for us just by the images on her site, but after speaking with her briefly, we booked her right away. My husband and I were planning our wedding from out of state, which has it's potential for disaster. But Erika was so easy to communicate details with us, you'd never have thought she was more than a short drive away.

On the wedding day, she was early to our venue, stayed later than she probably needed to, and even gave our hair stylist a ride! Who does that?! During the event, she was like a photography ninja. When we looked through the photos we couldn't believe there was only one photographer. It was amazing! Every single moment was captured beautifully, but without disturbing or forcing anything. She captured our wedding better than I can even remember it. Anyone can take pictures or adjust camera settings, but it takes a true artist to CAPTURE moments the way Erika did.

Book her, book her, BOOK HER! :) Do it.

Both Kev and I enjoyed working with Erika immensely. She is a wonderful photographer and very professional. She also gave us a lot of advice on how to enjoy our wedding and the planning process. She documented both our wedding in Malaysia and New Orleans and was able to photograph 2 distinctly different weddings with poise. I have a large family and she was able to manage the crowd and get crucial shots of family and friends that came out beautifully. She is very eagered to learn about various cultures and tailored her photography to highlight the cultural components of our weddings. I highly recommend her to all my friends and family. You will not be disappointed!

Erika Parker is a phenomenal photographer! My husband and I really enjoyed working with her. She met with us several times before the wedding to help guide us through the process and delivered just what we were looking for. Everything from our magical first look, reigning in our large families for group shots, and candids all came out perfectly.
We couldn't have asked for a better day & photographer- beautiful memories that we will forever cherish!

Trying to pick a photographer was agonizing for me, as I felt there were so many different styles and choices. When I found and interviewed Erika, though, I knew that she would do everything in her power to capture my wedding day without me having to worry a single second about it. My mind was completely at ease. We got a taste of her incredible abilities at our engagement photo shoot, where she accommodated us beyond what I could have hoped for. She showed up early to the pre-wedding goings-on and went right to work, asking my input when needed, but was otherwise completely at home doing what she does best. There were a lot of things on my mind during the wedding day, but whether or not my pictures would be alright was absolutely not a concern. The confidence she instilled in me was a fabulous respite from the other anxieties of wedding planning. All I can say is THANK YOU, ERIKA PARKER! We are so grateful and 110% in love with all our pictures.

Erika is professional, fun, easy going, accommodating, talented and the list goes on. She is very prompt and responsive with her communication. When we first met up with Erika prior to choosing her, we were able to take a look at some sample albums of wedding photography she had done and knew instantly that her style was exactly what we wanted. When we did our engagement photos, she made us feel very comfortable and helped to guide us how to pose and stand-I wanted this. But if you wanted to do anything in particular or have props, she's open to that. We got our engagement photos on CD with the release within a month! Each photo was edited (these were about 400) and come in both color and black & white. Our wedding photos captured our day in such a way that we relive our wedding day each time we look at the photos. Can't wait for our formal wedding session! I was a bride that did alot of my photography research online and highly recommend Erika!
