Hilary & Rob Engagement Photography Session
Erika is such an incredible photographer and more importantly a greater person! We did our engagement photo shoot as well as our wedding photos with her, and we were blown away with the result!
Her vision for fun, relaxed, natural images really showed during our photo sessions. At no point did we feel awkward or uncomfortable during our photo shoots! She really does have a gift for creating the perfect shot.

I 100% recommend Erika to anyone! You WILL NOT be disappointed. Thank you for the memories Erika!

If I could give her a sixth and seventh and eighth star, I would...Erika did photos for my husband and I with our newborn - what an amazing experience! The pictures turned out incredible and she was an absolute dream of a photographer to work with. I was a little nervous about my less-than-camera-ready post-partum body being in front of the camera, but she was so awesome to work with that all of that insecurity disappeared after the first few minutes of chatting with her :-) She did an incredible job of capturing the love and joy my husband and I share over the birth of our little boy...the pictures are stunning! The only problem now is how hard it’s going to be to pick which pictures to put up first because they’re all so gorgeous!

I have had the pleasure of working with Erika and it’s evident from her work, just how passionate and dedicated she is to her photography. Every detail is captured and the results are always breathtaking. Would recommend her to any of my brides!

I can’t even begin to describe how great it was working with Erika! Such a sweet and kind person. And very professional as well! A great combo. Her photos are amazing, I was pleasantly shocked. I am not a photogenic person at all and had a baby a couple of months before my wedding but she took such beautiful shots. If I could give 10 stars I would! Get her ASAP!!

Engagement Session and Our Wedding Day were both times we were so lucky to have had Erika Alvarenga as our photographer. Her patience, support, photography skills along with her passion to capture love in all forms, has given us more then photos to cherish but an experience we get to relive each time we see each picture. During each session Erika captured our personalities, visions and love story so beautifully. Her positivity and encouragement had us and family members feeling so comfortable and natural in front of the camera.
Erika was really dedicated to us and always was quick in assisting us in anyway. The presentation of our galleries was stunning and truly showed her talents. Amazing creativity! Cant wait to have Erika as my life long photographer as her kindness, beautiful work along with professionalism creates for only positive life memories for any life event.

It was truly a privilege getting to know Erika through our wedding planning process. I am NOTORIOUSLY uncomfortable with photos, but Erika makes you feel so incredibly comfortable it soon becomes a breeze. At our wedding last weekend our videographers noted “you guys are naturals at this” - I can confidently say that it was thanks to our engagement photo session with Erika we both felt so comfortable in front of cameras. The bright, airy quality of her photos completely make me swoon. She’s a true talent and a super nice person to top it off!

I don’t even know where to begin with how amazing Erika and her second shooter, Rachel were. They both went above and beyond what we could have imagined. Erika is so easy going, and great to work with, we had so much fun, and she made us all laugh with her bubbly personality. Everything felt natural, and she directed us beautifully. We just received our previews and holy S*** they are stunning. Her personal editing style is so incredible, the light and airy look is breath taking, and I just love that all the photos have that touch. I cannot wait for the rest. I would recommend Erika, to anyone who wants a happy, fun spirited, professional photographer that is amazing at what she does. The best, hands down!!!
