Meet me in Polkadot Park! // 9/23 Community Portrait Day

Hello! Over the past few weeks something incredible has happened in my beloved town of Hyattsville, MD. Local design boutique Green Owl Design has organized a community mural painting project and it has evolved quickly into something truly inspiring!

On Saturday 9/23, the same day as Hyattsville’s Arts and Ales Fest there will be a community painting day AND  from 5:00pm-7:30pm I am excited to announce that I will be offering FREE portraits to ANYONE who would like to have their photo taken with the murals. I only ask that you wear something FUN that makes you HAPPY!

We will start at 5:00pm at 5302 Baltimore Ave, Hyattsville, MD 20781 and we will be moving around the area mural hopping.

If you can’t find us when you arrive please  call or text me: 202-617-0593 and I will let you know where we are! 🙂

Baltimore Wedding at AVAM // is it fall yet?

Hello! WOW, so the past 6 months have been a whirlwind and, I can not believe I haven’t posted anything. (I’ve barely had time to breath!) I’m picking things up right where I left off. It might be August but a fall chill is in the air and I think that TODAY is a great day to share this fall wedding from last year. M&M got hitched at the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore on a WARM November day.  The foliage was peak of the peak and the whole event was down right stunning! Here are some of my most favorite moments from the day….

Happy New Year! // What Will 2017 Bring?

I hope everyone had a great New Years! We still have lots of events and weddings to share from Fall 2016 but here is a little recap of some of the highlights from the year! Thank you to all of my amazing clients, nothing is possible with out you!

Cheers- Erika

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…

The Hyattsville Project // an ongoing series

This week I would like to share one of my personal photo assignments I have been working on for some time.  It’s called the Hyattsville Project and it’s an ongoing series documenting my neighborhood.  Recently it’s gotten some attention over at Capital Photography Center. Here’s a little excerpt from the article…http://capitalphotographycenter.com/blog/article/planning-a-personal-project

I’ve also just recently processed a few more rolls of film from the series and I have some new images from it that I just scanned.
