love notes

I found Erika while surfing the web. I met up with Erika at a Panera Bread, we hit it off immediately. Her bubbly personality and excitement about my wedding day confirmed that she was the right choice for me. Erika was at my rehearsal, before me, she was exactly as I remembered and was so excited for me. This was just my rehearsal and she made me feel like the center of attention, I knew I was going to be in good hands for my wedding day. Erika was a joy on my wedding day. Her personality helped me to stay calm and to focus on the great things instead of all the small nitt-pickey things. Erika captured my wedding day perfectly. My family has made comments on how all of my pictures looked amazing. The convience of getting all of my pictures on a disk was fabulous. I could print however many pictures I want, in whatever size I want, whenever I want to. I would recommend Erika to anyone. Why spend thousands of dollars on mediocre photography, when you can get breath taking photos without breaking the bank. Megan Harrison

Erika Rice shot my wedding on May 2, 2009. I am very pleased with every aspect of her performance. I felt comfortable with Erika from the first time that we met. She is very friendly, but also professional. Not only did Erika do a wonderful job capturing the memories from our special day but, after our wedding was over I felt like Erika was an old friend! Erika seemed to wear many hats at our wedding. Not only did she take wonderful photos, she helped us in many ways during our wedding. When we didn't know what we were doing (which was often) she stepped up and pointed us in the right direction. When I first met with Erika and she informed me that she would make herself available for the rehearsal, I thought "how nice." Now that I think back, I thank my lucky stars that Erika was at our rehearsal. It seemed Erika being at the wedding rehearsal was the only thing that went right that day. When my minister had to leave before we could even get into the space where the wedding was to be held it was Erika who stepped up and took the lead. When everyone was just standing around looking at each other Erika quickly jumped to action and walked us through the procedure. Our wedding day was a beautiful day and Erika did a wonderful job capturing that. Again, I feel like Erika went above and beyond her job title. Erika was there to help us get ready and again kept us on task and on time. Our wedding ran a little later than expected, and I thought we would never get to our reception on time. Erika did a wonderful job coordinating with the wedding party and family to get the shots that we wanted and she did it efficiently. We got to the reception in plenty of time. Thank you Erika! You were a big part of our day and we will never forget it. Summer Bartsch

Erika was so wonderful at my wedding - she was helpful in more ways than she needed to be, picking up wherever need be. I cannot brag on her enough! All of our guests keep talking about how wonderful they thought she was also. SHE'S AMAZING! Libby Langston

Erika photographed my wedding and I cannot say enough good things about her. She was so much more than an amazing photographer. She helped fix my makeup, bustle my dress, and anything other little things that came up. I have had so many people that were at the wedding ask me if Erika was a friend of mine because she fit in so well and was so wonderful to me. She is just so personable and makes you feel at ease. She even came with me to Sephora where I was getting my makeup done and got some amazing shots from that. Her brides are her top priority and she will do anything for them. She also helped keep the wedding going smoothly. Besides all that, my wedding pictures are so beautiful. I can't stop looking at them. I've had a few people tell me they look like artwork. Hiring Erika was the best decision I made. I can't imagine my wedding would have been as smooth without her. I really just can't say enough good things about her!Mindy Hegyi

We had Erika take pictures of our 2 1/2 year old twins who HATE having their pictures taken(I try everday), they were also tired & pretty grouchy/fussy as well as slow to warm up to strangers(and it started raining on us). From the moment she got out of her car and patiently waited as we dressed our daughters, I knew I liked her. She had my girls laughing and loving her right away too, she is great with kids, she acts silly with them and really easy going. Erika felt more like I was having my best friend take pictures of my girls, not someone we had all just met!Our pictures are Amazing, I thought since my girls were being so uncooperative due to their tiredness we wouldn't have that many good ones but they are all wonderful. I fell in love with Erikas online photos, they are so beautiful and like pieces of artwork and now I have them of my own girls : )Thanks so much Erika.Christina Kerns Kemplin

Erika - you were marvelous this weekend! I cannot wait to see Amanda and Nick's wedding pictures. You helped make their day the best! Don and I loved you! Moxie Garman, Mother of Bride

Erika came to our house and took family portraits for us! She was very easy to work with and had great ideas for some unique ways of capturing our family! Highly Recommend her work - it is excellent! -Mandi Cool

My wedding day was a day I wanted planned out down to every small detail. I wanted a photographer that would be easy to work with and do a great job. I chose Erika and couldn't have made a better choice. Erika met with us weeks before the wedding and wrote out what we wanted. Then the day of the wedding she was such a joy. She made me and my husband feel at ease with her and captured some of the best moments of the day. She was very personable and helped make our wedding day a day we'll never forget. -Mr. & Mrs. Gilbert

Erika is great! She's very professional and fun. She helped with so many little things at the wedding & rehearsal dinner that were outside of her responsibility. She was flexible with time and had a ton of great ideas. Her prices are unbeatable - you really can't beat them. I've been to and in weddings when the photographer has been really intrusive and kind of in the way - she wasn't like this at all, as the bride I didn't realize she was even there during the big moments (she even brought me snacks & drinks throughout the night, what more could you ask for?). My bridal party LOVED her, the one getting engaged soon will be calling Erika right away to book her. -Christina Leasure

Erika was wonderful! She took the extra step to make sure that everything was perfect the day of my wedding/ including things she was not even responsible for. She has a wonderful and outgoing personality, which to me says alot about a person and their work. Upon recieving my photos from her I was very impressed with them. I would HIGHLY recommened her to anyone who is looking for an outgoing yet professional photographer. -Amanda Odon

Erika is a joy to work with! - Sherry Liles
