Hertfordshire Wedding Photographer

Award Winning Documentary Wedding Photography.

Hey there, thanks for scrolling down! So, you are getting married (woo hoo!) and you’re on the hunt for a wedding photographer, well thanks for stopping at my site,  I hope you like the images that you’ve seen so far. I like to sum my work up as Real Moments, Creatively Captured. Your wedding is unique and I want your photos to reflect this. If you don’t want your wedding to feel like a photo-shoot, and are looking for a more relaxed, less traditional approach to your day, then you could be looking for a ‘documentary wedding photographer’ and would you believe it, thats what I am!  I want you to enjoy your wedding day, with big genuine smiles written all over your happy faces. These are the moments I love to capture. Real moments, captured creatively (see I said it again!) in a natural and relaxed manner.

I live in Hitchin Hertfordshire, which is the best town in the world, if you don’t know it, come visit, tell me, and we can grab a coffee and talk weddings!

WEDDINGS ARE BACK!

Well, sort of. I’m thrilled to have been able to dust off my camera, clean up my lenses and get back to snapping again. I have had the honour of shooting three ‘mini’ weddings within Hertfordshire recently. I’ve really been missing capturing these celebrations, from the confetti, to the kisses, I miss it all! So If you are sticking two fingers up to Covid and embracing these strange times you may find my post on smaller wedding celebration in Hertfordshire helpful.

NEW TO MY SITE ‘SUPPLIER LOVE’

Within the home counties we are spoilt for choose when it comes to great wedding suppliers. Over the 9 years I have been photographing weddings I have worked with some amazing people and I think they deserve a little shout out, so I’ve made a handy little guide.

"She has enough presence to command a group or staged photo but more importantly enough stealth so take the most amazing natural photos to capture the essence of the day. So many of our guests have complimented the photography"

"The wedding day was very difficult, -1c with a wind chill of -8c. Despite difficult conditions Erica captured some magical moments outdoors, and improvised when needed to ensure guests were all kept comfortable. We were amazed with the results!!"

"The best way of showing praise for someone’s work is to recommend them. I have recommended Erica to everyone I know! Her photos are amazing and I can’t stop looking at them. She has captured perfect moments in a still image that I haven’t seen before and they are so natural. Every shoot that I see of hers is the same. She manages to capture the atmosphere brilliantly. Erica keeps in contact from beginning to end and fulfills all your requirements and is great value for money."

"Erica has high emotional intelligence and great sense of humour which enabled her to capture the genuine moments of our day. We loved our photos so much and I always enjoy looking at all the other weddings she shoots on her excellent Facebook and Instagram pages. She is the queen of the candid shot which makes every photo shoot unique."
