"I couldn’t have found a better photographer for our wedding! She is so charismatic and down to earth, it made our engagement session so effortless and relaxing. She really took the time to figure out who we were and what makes us unique. Then she took that information and portrayed it in her photos of us, which turned out amazing! She did a phenomenal job."

-Brianna H. 

Meet Erin

Hey hey! I'm Erin, a rural wedding photographer based out of Aberdeen, South Dakota.
I've been known to head to the pasture for sunset photos, finish engagement sessions with a beer with my couples, pray with my bride before the ceremony, and hop the party bus after.
I've always said, "If you're not having fun, you aren't doing it right."
My priority on your wedding day is to make the photos about the day, rather than the day revolving around photos.
I'm here to catch all of the joy and laughter while making your day relaxing and intentional. 
Here's a few fun facts about me:
I grew up in northwest Iowa, but after graduating SDSU I never wanted to leave South Dakota!
I have an MBA in Marketing/Finance, which is super boring and nerdy, but has helped me so much in smoothly running a business and doing more of the things that I love!
I love being rooted in one place, but I'm a huge traveler! I've been to Europe 3 times, and to almost all of the 50 states. Alaska + Maui have been my favorite! I love to hike and it's a goal of mine to hit all of the national parks.
I grew up on a farm and still try to get home often, especially during harvest. My dad lets me be head honcho in the combine, and snap a few photos along the way. They're some of my favorite days. 
I'm a huge critter person. I have a golden retriever, Leonard, and a cat. They do a great job of supervising my editing and taking breaks for snacks. Please bring all the fur babies to your session!
I truly believe that your wedding photographer is one of the most important decisions that you will make when planning your wedding. This is the person who will spend the entire day third wheeling you. I hope this helps you to know more about me, I love when brides follow me on Instagram, and it feels like we've known each other for YEARS even when we meet for the first time for engagement photos. 

So that's me! I want to hear about you! If you're ready to reach out, head on over and fill out a few questions for me so I can get to know you!
