Erica Baldwin was referred to me by my boss, nearly a year before my wedding date. Fortunately for me, I had the opportunity to see a lot of Erica’s work through what she had done for coworkers, which also gave me the opportunity to hear about their experiences directly from them. I was incredibly impressed right off the bat with the work I had seen from coworkers, but had some concern with pricing as I wanted (needed) to get the best deal possible. I was confident that I would end up using Erica and “suck it up” if I had to pay more than what else was out there because her work was such high quality and worth it… To my surprise, however, Erica’s pricing was VERY competitive with what I had found in researching other photographers. In fact, she was priced well below most and included much more!? My fiancé (at the time) and I did an engagement shoot with Erica, which ended up being lots of fun and the photos turned out great! Erica was easy to work with and the shoot was a telling sign that Erica was the right choice for our wedding day. Once that very special day came around, Erica was already well in tuned with our style and what was important to us, because she made sure to ask those important questions well in advance. Erica even took a moment of her own personal time to drive out to our venue with us the week before during our rehearsal, to see the venue, meet our party and be prepared to be at her best. ?Erica made our event very fun and managed (somehow) to keep our wedding party and guests “on task” when needed (in a kind and fun way, of course). At one point during our dinner, Erica was dangling from a second floor balcony to catch her “perfect shot,” which ended up capturing some of my favorites! My only issue throughout this entire experience has been the daunting task of picking out favorites for our album, because they were all so good! She captured so many incredible moments of this day and I look forward to booking her for many more events in the future, for years to come. She has become a great friend over the last couple of years as well, a true testament to her character.
