UPDATE // Where have I been?

Hello there!

Well, it happens to the best of us. I got super busy towards the end of 2017. Here we are, almost April and I have yet to post anything. At the end of 2017 I had the honor to document several important events: Weddings, families, communities, and political movements. I’ve been behind my camera A LOT and in front of my computer very little. So I thought I’d share the latest news!

I’ve been working on a personal project very close to my heart. It’s a documentary called 30 at Thirty. On November 14th I turned 30.  Like most of us I was dreading the birthday but then it happened and I felt amazing! I feel like I’m the greatest version of me. I had also been brain storming ideas for a personal photo project to work on and at that moment it all came to be. So, I’ve given myself 1 year to interview and photograph 30 women at the age of 30. I’ve decided to keep it just inside the US, but I want to make sure I interview women from all over our country. To date I’ve been to: CA,DC,DE,FL,HI,IL,MO,OR and I’m trying to plan a road trip to TEXAS maybe in the Summer.

You can follow my journey on IG: @30atthirty or on FB: https://www.facebook.com/30atthirty/

Each subject gets to choose where she is photographed. The interview consists of the same 15 questions (I’ll get into that later). But I will share this- I’m learning thru this process that as a whole this generation is working hard to be our best selves, (no) not all of us are drowning in  student debt, almost all of us want a family, and we all suffer from anxiety.

Here’s 18 portraits from the series so far:

Are you 30? Do you identify as female? If you answered YES to both of those questions and live in the US please contact me: erika@erikanizborski.com , I’d LOVE to interview you.

 

Stay tuned for more!

Fall Wedding // Inn at Mount Vernon Farm

This past fall I had the absolute pleasure to go back to the Inn at Mount Vernon Farm in Sperryville, VA to photograph another wedding there. It was Maggie and Will’s BIG DAY and they were surrounded by some really amazing family and friends… and their furry four legged family too! Around every corner I found sentimental details, which led to lots and lots of photos.   These two are also diehard Chicago Cubs fans, though they had hadn’t won the world series quite yet at this point they did have a very special surprise at the end of the ceremony. Here are some highlights from the day…

Summer is over!

As we embark on the last true weekend of Summer I thought it would be appropriate to share some highlights from the coolest staff picnic I’ve ever seen! Summer is over! Let’s relive that July heat wave, here are some moments from the staff Picnic at George Washington’s Mount Vernon.  Sweets and treats provided by Rebel’s Kitchen , countless delicious food trucks, and a bouncy house obstacle course.  What fun!

Many of us will head out to a BBQ or Picnic this weekend, what’s your favorite way to end Summer?

Engagement session // at Yards Park with beagle in tow!

Well, it’s been a few weeks since my last post.  We need to catch up! My super busy season is underway and off to a great start.

Today I am delighted to share a really fun engagement photo session from about a month ago.  On an early Sunday morning Holly and Michael, and their adorable little Beagle named Sprocket met up with me at The Yards Park next to the Nationals Baseball stadium (They are huge fans!).  We walked the dock, fetched sticks, and had a wonderful time! Here’s a peek…

Locals Only // Hyattsville, MD Engagement Session

Often I leave my business cards on bulletin boards at cafe’s. It’s not very often that I get a call from one that I have left.  Almost weekly I tack up my card over at my favorite neighborhood coffee shop, Vigilante. A few months ago Meghan and Marshall, who also enjoy Vigilante gave me a call. They saw my card, and they were in search of a wedding photographer! We met at guess where…. our favorite coffee shop!  We hit it off and the rest is history.

These two are getting hitched in Baltimore this fall, so we met up for engagement photos a few weeks ago, and we kept it local!

We started at sunrise in Magruder Park with the couples pup, Booker.  We ended the morning with a hot cup of coffee over at Vigilante.  We had a second meet up a few days later at their home.  M&M make homemade pasta on weekends, YUM.  We ended the evening over at Union Market where the couple enjoys visiting the Rappahannock Oyster Bar .

Here is a look at the highlights…

Engagement Photos in Bloomingdale!

You know the saying “April showers bring May flowers” Well, all last week I had my fingers crossed for nice weather on Saturday for an engagement photo session I had.  “Nice” doesn’t begin to describe happened on Saturday. Not only did the weather man say that it was the best day of the year so far but this couple- they are truly amazing! We took a stroll around the Bloomingdale neighborhood, incorporated the pup, headed to the Capitol for some additional DC flare, and made magic happen! Here is a look…
