How do you edit your photos?

I’m live in Scottsdale, Arizona, but I LOVE to travel to photograph outside of the Valley of the Sun! I'm willing to travel anywhere else inside and outside of Arizona for just about any session.

Pretty simple, fill out my contact form and I’ll get back to you within 48 business hours! From there, we’ll discuss all of the details (date, location, etc.) and we'll move forward with getting you booked. I require a deposit and signed contract for every type of session. I accept PayPal or Venmo for deposits, and these options along with cash or check on the day of the shoot for the remainder of the balance.

Afterwards, I begin sorting through the photos, narrowing down the best of the best and I begin the editing process. For portraits & events, please allow one week for images to be digitally delivered. For weddings, please allow one month for your images to be delivered.

You will receive your images through a beautiful online album-style gallery. From here, you'll be able to download and share your images immediately! This gallery will remain available to you indefinitely.

Yes, and I make it super easy to order! You will be able to purchase prints, albums, holiday cards, canvases, & more directly through your online gallery after delivery!

It varies by session, but you can expect between 20-30 images per each hour shot, but I don't have a cutoff. I never withhold great photos!

I deliver final, edited images to all of my clients. I promise you don't want all of the raw, unedited photos! I will deliver all of the best shot to you, only taking out the blinks, blurs, unfitting images, & test shots. Crafting the deliverable images through editing is just as important as actually capturing them, and I would never want to give anyone half-finished work!

I don't just apply a filter to all of your images and hand them over, I give care and consideration into each photo taken after sorting. I remove anything that’s temporary, like blemishes or bruises, and I leave anything permanent, like moles, freckles, or scars. I create a custom editing workflow for each shoot, but my style remains bright, colorful & natural throughout all of my work.

Absolutely! I’m completely open & willing to help with styling and location scouting for any type of shoot. I can suggest a wide range of beautiful outdoor locations, and can send Pinterest boards for styling inspo if requested.

Do you photograph LGBTQ+ couples?

Of course. It would be my pleasure to document any moment or celebration for individuals of any orientation.

Can I bring my dog?

Um, yes! I welcome furry family members at any type of session.

Do you have any travel fees?

All travel fees are included in my prices within a one-hour distance from Scottsdale, Arizona. Travel fees outside of here vary by distance and will be discussed after inquiring.

I'm awkward/don't photograph well, can you help me?

My goal is for each person I photograph to feel comfortable enough in front of the camera so their true selves shine though, so yes! And rest assured, almost everyone thinks they'll be awkward in front of the camera unless they're a professional model. After a few minutes into our shoot, that feeling will fade away.

What's your style?

If I had to put it into words, I narrow it down to bright, natural & adventurous! I specialize in shooting all types of portrait photography (individual, family, couples) in outdoor locations. I aim to use the natural surroundings found on location to frame my subjects. If you love nature, you'll love my work! My event photography remains very true-to-life, bringing out the best candid moments of the event.

Erica is a portrait, wedding, lifestyle & event photographer based in Austin, Texas.
