Amanda and Miguel have tied the knot! You may remember them from their beautiful High Line/Meat Packing District engagement session. This couple is so filled with love and so much fun that I knew their wedding would be one to remember and alas they didn’t disappoint!  There is so much to love about this couple and their stylish wedding that I have decided to split the day into two chapters.  Their wedding was France themed as this is where  he popped the question. How romantic is that??  And to top it off, Amanda got ready in an old house with an amazing artist’s studio in the attic.  It could seriously have been transplanted from a cottage in the French countryside.  The lighting there was just amazing.  Best wishes to the wonderful couple!

:Just Because: Meet Kristine + Andy

undefined

San Francisco/Bay Area Photography- When we have free time from wedding photography, we like to do what? Why, more photography of course! We simply can’t get enough. ^.^ So, on our recent trip to Pacifica, California with our dear friends Kristine and Andy, we explored the moodily beautiful seascapes of the area and had some fun with the camera as well. I love how playful Kristine and Andy’s relationship is and their chemistry is unreal! But, I didn’t have to say that…  as you can so tell by the images.  Thanks, Kristine and Andy for your friendship, the great memories and for allowing us to capture your wonderful love!

:Fine Art Boudoir: Meet Mrs. P.

classy boudoir, captured by erika, hotel, sexy, natural light, loungerie

Mrs. P is a beautiful girl inside and out and we had so much fun together. She wanted to give the gift of boudoir to her now husband as a pre-wedding gift. And what a great gift that was! Once he saw the book filled with sexy images of his gorgeous bride, he was absolutely floored.  At their wedding he came up to me numerous times telling me how much he loved the boudoir book and that he wanted to purchase 10 extra copies!  hehe ^.^  This is pretty much the same sentiment I get from all the husbands, fiance’s and boyfriends who receive one of my boudoir books.  Ladies, if you are looking for a unique gift to give your future or even current hubby, you can’t go wrong with a classy fine art boudoir session!
