I'm based in Central Mississippi, but always willing and ready to travel anywhere adventure takes us. Photography for me is more than a job. It's a literally the cliche dream come true. I adore my clients and chasing sunsets with people. I go into each session or wedding with one serve you and serve you well. I don't want to just be your photographer. 

I want to do life together, as a true friend, while capturing all the wonderful moments that make your life so incredible along the way.

back to main


Hey hey! I'm Erica. I'm a wife to my best friend and middle school crush. I'm a momma to 4 kiddos this side of Heaven and 3 more waiting for me in Eternity. I love exploring new places and traveling, (like would seriously hop on a plane to travel any day of the week, no questions asked) but also love a nice quiet night at home binging Netflix. I drink entirely too much caffeine. White chocolate, caramel and coconut iced lattes and Loaded teas are my love language. I love my friends and am so totally lucky that so many of my clients become such wonderful friends. I've been a nurse for the past 13 years, but left patient care in 2021 to be a full-time wedding photographer, and it's been one of the best decisions I've made!

I'm a lover of light, color and all things joyful. I tend to have a true to life, yet warm and colorful shooting style and literally swoon when I'm chasing sunsets and that golden light hits. A majority of my sessions are made of me looking silly watching where light touches things to paint the landscape. I still can't believe that this is my job and I'm so so blessed to do this thing daily! I can't wait to meet you and work together!

I am seriously obsessed with details. Give me all the textures, pretty little details and lush florals. Styling even the tiniest of details is one of my favorite parts of photography. 



I have a serious case of wanderlust and a heart for overseas missions. I'm always down to explore new places while sharing the love of Christ around the world.

missions & travel


Whether it's in the car, at church, or just hanging around the house, I love listening to and loudly singing off key to worship music. It just makes everything better.

worship music


Let's be honest, I don't discriminate between caffeine sources, but coffee is my first love. Give me a white chocolate and caramel iced coffee and I'll be your best friend.

photographed over my career (who's counting!)


I believe in quality over quantity and never want my clients to feel like just another face in the crowd. You can trust that each and every session gets the time and attention it deserves to ensure it is perfect. I absolutely love going through life with my clients and that so many of them become friends that we regularly text and chat about our lives. I believe in serving people, and serving them well, and consider this wonderful career my mission field. Consider me an extra set of hands, hype girl, best friend and encourager. I want to do life together and lift each other up. That doesn't stop once your session is over. Cheesy as it may sound, I'm here for the long haul, friend.

what makes me different ?

I know you have a ton of choices that are AMAZING for photographers, so I don't take it lightly when you choose me. Over the past decade, I have worked countless hours to hone my craft and learn and improve skills. I have primarily been self taught, but also benefitted from some amazing educators in the photography world that made me both a better photographer, business owner, AND person. I don't depend on current trends for my editing or shooting style, as I prefer timeless imagery that won't date itself. I am absolutely not the photographer for everyone, but if you're looking for a photographer that's more than just a photographer, I might be your girl.
