I have worked for and with several photographers during my journey, but none was so special as working as Erika Chambers Photography's second at weddings years ago! I actually did not do any of my own weddings at that time, and famously told her I never would! HA! The enormity of the responsibilitybeing in charge of the memories at the beginning of a lifetime overwhelmed me then- and is still at the front of my mind now every wedding I take on. The moment I stop getting butterflies before a session is the moment I will know its time to move on!
What I love about Erika is her heart- she understands the emotion and importance behind her captures and where the focus really should be (pun totally intended). Erika's photography career encompasses a wide range of events and social causes. This girl is the real sincere deal, all heart and guts. She is brave when she is scared, a true measure of courage, and doesn't fail to bring her entire heart into every project from the United Way photo journalism, to social causes and her music- oh yeah, she is a ridiculously talented musician and singer. If she wasn't the sweetest damn person, you would be so jealous of all she has going on for her <3
P.S. I love you Erika! I cannot wait to see where your heart, dreams, and adventures take you!
Here is where to find Erika online!
I was blessed to be given a chance to be a part of Erika's team, learning more about the love and art of wedding photography. Here are a few of my favorite photos I took while under her wing!
Ah, this is the one. The photo of the little girl who started my obsession with flower girl portraits and candid photos!
