My motto in life has always been “Go big or go home.” Whether it’s card games or major life decisions, I love the exhilaration of taking the big risk for the big reward. I have never been content with, “say cheese!!!” Ugh.
After 9 years in the photography business, weddings are still my first love. Each one is so different and deeply personal with its own unique style and flavor. Sharing each couple’s adventure is what fuels my passion to preserve them into works of art.
There is nothing I treasure more than seeing the beauty of this love captured and presented in the form of showpiece-quality heirlooms that complement the authenticity, beauty, and emotion of those original moment, allowing you to relive that memory for years to come.
As a company founded on truth, beauty and art, I set out to document these life events in a way that helps them live on forever – on your walls and in the album that you’ll share with your kids and grandkids.
Miroslava - Erica is not only a great photographer, she is also a great and easy going person.
We were specifically looking for a photographer that would be there to document our intimate wedding but that would not be telling us how to pose and what to do every 5 minutes. We immediately felt comfortable with her, as did our friends.
She captured some great moments and 2 years later, we still look at those photographs with excitement and awe.
Sarah - Erica took amazing photos. We did not want a lot of pictures that were posed and she did a great job of capturing the day naturally. The layout of the photobooks we got was amazing, nothing I had ever seen before and our families loved them. She met with us before the wedding and listened to our likes and dislikes, and we got our pictures back pretty quickly. We got to see them up on a big screen which was cool too!
Erica is so laid back and she helped everything go smoothly!
A Google User - I must say that of all of the great photo galleries out there, yours is the only one leaving me wanting to see more of your work. Keep it up!
iboboth - Working with Erica was a dream! I got all of the shots that I wanted, her rates were very reasonable… I really felt like she cared – personally – about my wedding and the way it was captured. Now I have top quality images to commemorate my very special “once-in-a-lifetime” day!
I would HIGHLY recommend her and her services… you won’t be sorry!
Laura - Erica provided quality images of the day… but even better, I felt like I had a friend with me all day, not a stranger!
Completely professional and high quality work!
lathrop - Erica really took the time to get to know us and that made things a lot easier. She has a very artistic eye and does things no other photographer would think of. The best part is how natural it was to have her taking photos without us even knowing she was there. A+++
moboyle - Erica did a spectacular job shooting my wedding. I really couldn’t have asked for anything better. I was able to enjoy my wedding and not worry about whether or not she was getting the shots I wanted. She got everything. She has very reasonable prices and the quality of the prints is just fantastic. I highly recommend Erica!!
jennmichelle21 - Erica did a fantastic job with our wedding photos. All of the pictures turned out better than I could have imagined. She made the process go very smooth, and it was a pleasure to have her there on our wedding day. I feel privileged to have had her take our wedding pictures.
Thank you Erica!!
Jenni and Bjoern

Kris B. - Erica Ann does beautiful and outstanding work. On her website, she says that one of her goals is to guide you into the best of you – she does this with ease! She was flexible, listened to our needs, and received gorgeous outcomes. Her pictures often come with stunning intensity of color. She has great spacial awareness… I never imagined that we would be able to have photographs outside on our December wedding, but she was able to find picturesque locations to do so (even in the church’s parking lot – who knew?!). I would recommend Erica Ann to anyone who is looking for an outstanding and committed photographer!”
Meredith F. - Erica is fantastic! She shot my fiancé and I for a special styled engagement session — won via a giveaway.
Not only was she attentive, thoughtful, and professional, but we had a blast planning the shoot, taking the photos (it was like she wasn’t even there!), and getting together afterward to select images.
I was really impressed by the quality of the images, and by the quality of the printed album. We have an amazing keepsake that we’ll treasure forever, and of course someone we’ll recommend to all our friends!
anotherportlandbride - Erica takes the best wedding photos I’ve ever seen. They don’t look like “wedding” photos, in fact. They look like professionally commissioned works of art. Erica took our engagement photos, our wedding photos, and some boudoir shots. I loved all of them. I am only giving a 4.5 for value, because I feel like maybe she is a hair on the pricey side, but the truth is, for her quality of work, she may not be high-priced at all. She was very open and flexible about moving dates, changing plans, changing layouts in the photo books, etc. Erica is one of the few people in the world that can so effortlessly and successfully blend her professionalism with her sorta “sure, okay, whatever, let’s do it” attitude. The results are truly personal photos. Erica doesn’t just take your pictures, she tells your story. Her assistant Kim was also a pleasure to work with. While Erica Ann Photography isn’t for super-low-budget brides, you should find other areas to trim expenses so that you can afford her. After everything is said and done, your pictures are what remain of your event, and Erica will make sure they tell your story. Highly recommended.
A Google User - Erica did such an incredible job with our wedding photos! The pictures turned out better then we could have imagined. Erica was so easy to work with and made our wedding day that much more special. I still look at our pictures everday in amazment! Jenni & Björn

A Google User - Erica made impossible possible for Aris and I. We won a styled engagement shoot with her and Kimberly of Billede Design. From day one both were attentive to our needs and preferences, engaged and excited, and professional. It was so comfortable shooting with Erica and it’s clear that she’s always considering her subjects’ style in every snap of the camera. We were beyond thrilled when we received our album. It’s an incredible keepsake and the quality is amazing. Anyone looking for a pro should give her a call!
JC P. - We used Erica Ann Photography and Fine Art for our hot-air balloon engagement on June 29th, 2012. We can’t thank Erica enough for the amazing photos she shot.
Erica is also super-cool and easy to work with, which made not only the picture shooting experience fun and relaxing, but quite honestly it made the day of our engagement that much more memorable. My fiancée and I will remember Friday, June 29th for the rest of our lives and thanks to Erica, even when we are old and senile, we will still be able to have wonderful pictoral memories of that day! :)

Joan - If you’re looking for professional, engaging and high quality photos – you want to meet with Erica to discuss your options! She is beyond talented and brings out the best in her subjects (even some of my family members who don’t tend to be photogenic). I would recommend her to anyone, from start (engagement session) to finish (completed album), I will have lasting memories through her artistic eye!
Leif U. - When my then fiancé – now husband and I found Erica Ann, we couldn’t believe how lucky we were! Reliving the journey through our engagement and wedding albums with awe, we still can’t believe it! She has this unique ability in capturing the emotions of our most intimate moments that it has taken our breath away. Her mixture of professional guidance and artistic flexibility made for a fun and pleasant experience which is reflected within her photos. ~ Leif and Kari
Mere J - I’ve never done anything like a Boudoir Session… My husband researched the idea and truly wanted me to do it, for both of us. He set it all up–I just appeared, to be totally spoiled by Erica Ann, Austie and Brenna for the better part of yesterday afternoon. All three of these lovely ladies, each with their unique, warm and welcoming personalities, put me at ease right away. It was a total treat for me; my man and I can’t wait to see the photos! This experience is one EVERY woman should have, no matter what the reason! Get yourself an appointment; I promise you will not regret it.UPDATE: We were so excited to go see the pictures… not to be cliche, but they were everything we imagined, and more! Make a date for yourself. Truly, you will regret it. It’s a time for you to focus on yourself, be completely pampered, and see yourself in a different light. The pictures are provocatively artistic, beautiful, and so tastefully done! We love them!
