“If you're getting married and you both absolutely hate having your picture taken, you need to hire Erika! As well as being a hugely talented photographer she's also a genuinely lovely person, and we're so happy she was part of our day.” - Rosie & Liam
Hi, I'm Erika, a North East Wedding Photographer based out of Newcastle.
If you're looking for creative North East wedding photography, with a real focus on reportage (or documentary style) wedding photography, then you've come to the right place. I'm available for weddings throughout the North East and the UK all year long. I shoot in a reportage wedding photography style. Which is another way of saying in a natural, storytelling manner. My style is unposed, candid photography, full of colour and light. This style allows me to be as unobtrusive as possible through the day. You can find examples of my work in my portfolio above. If you like what you see you can find my wedding photography prices here.
I've always believed the images we cherish the most are those which capture the spontaneous moment; a look of love, a genuine laugh, the spark of life being lived to its fullest. As opposed to staged poses and 'saying cheese'! I like to fuse this with a contemporary feel and classic techniques as well as the mood and atmosphere in any given setting. I try to make my wedding photography creative and unique, something for my couples to treasure whenever they look back on their photos.
I've featured in many of the biggest wedding magazines in the region, have a glowing list of reviews from a long line of happy couples, and have won a number of awards for my reportage style. If you're wondering what exactly IS reportage wedding photography, I've put together this article to help explain the term and my style: What Is Reportage Wedding Photography?
Having being a professional wedding photographer since 2012 I've photographed hundreds of weddings in that time. I've shot at some of the top North East & Northumberland wedding venues including: Alnwick Castle, Beamish Museum, Durham Cathedral, Eshott Hall, Gateshead Old Town Hall, Guyzance Hall, Healey Barn, Hexham Abbey, High House Farm, Jesmond Dene House, Le Petit Chateau, Matfen Hall, The Baltic Mill, Tynemouth Grand Hotel, Tyneside Cinema, Wynyard Hall and many more!
Wedding photography in the North East can be a wonderful thing! If you're looking to book a consultation or want more information, just contact me.
