"We’d definitely recommend Erika to anyone looking for someone to capture their wedding day. Not only will you have beautiful photos to remember your day by, but you’ll meet a lovely person!"
"Hi Erika [our wedding day] was lovely thank you very much, and it was lovely to meet you! The photos are gorgeous thank you x"
Carla & Gaz, Wedding Photography, November 2018
"We love the photos thanks! You managed to really capture the spirit of the day"
Mr & Mrs C, Wedding Photography, October 2018
"By our wedding day, our photographer was our friend. Knowing she was ‘on my side’ made me relaxed and comfortable enough to open up and trust her. Her photojournalist style meant I didn’t have to stand in a line up with a rictus grin hating every minute. She caught every careful detail of our day. Little things that would otherwise have been forgotten. To look though our wedding album now is to relive our special day. To remember the silly thing that made me laugh, or the way my new husband looked at me as he made his vows. There are also the clever shots, the beautiful quirky ones that are my favourite. What we got were beautiful, treasured pictures that fill the walls of our home with happy memories. Thank you Erika."
Mr & Mrs Armstrong, Wedding Photography, September
"As a wedding celebrant, I go to a lot of weddings and I see a lot of pictures. Erika’s pictures always make me smile because she sees the little details; she always catches beautiful moments in time, and captures the uniqueness of the day. I will happily recommend Erika to any of the couples that I work with because I know that she won’t let them down. She produces beautiful pictures that are perfect for each couple over and over again. "
Lemon Drop Ceremonies, Wedding Celebrant
"If you're getting married and you both absolutely hate having your picture taken, you need to hire Erika! We chose her to cover our wedding at Crook Hall in Durham earlier this month and she was so chilled and lovely and made us and our guests feel so comfortable. As well as taking fantastic candid, natural photos of us and our guests that really captured the feel of the day, Erika took so many creative and beautiful shots of our venue, and she captured so many little details of the day and our ceremony without us even realising.
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, Wedding Photography, July 2018
"Some of them look so good - looks like we didn't stop laughing the whole time 😊 very happy with them and definitely feeling more comfortable - I'd definitely recommend an engagement shoot to anyone getting married."

It was great having you and will recommend you to all and everyone."
Rhona & John, Wedding Photography, May 2018
"Thank you so much! I love love love the photos!"
Laura & Daniel, Wedding Photography, March 2018
"We chose Erika to cover our 10th wedding anniversary renewal of wedding vows in December 2017. And how happy are we that we did. Erika was with us throughout the day from us leaving to go to the Church and then to the reception afterwards. We have stunning photos and yet never really seemed to notice that she was there. The Church photos of the service are wonderful. All those beautiful memories of that day are now captured to re-visit at any time thanks to her skill. What a lovely lady and I would not hesitate to recommend her photography. We said of that day that it was picture perfect, in a frame and wrapped with a bow of love and Erika was a major contributor to this. Thank you Muchly. Carole and Phil "
Carole & Phil, Anniversary Photography, December 2017
"I can’t recommend the lovely Erika enough. She was amazing throughout the whole day. She is so professional, kept everyone in line whilst also being so approachable and helpful. She not only took photos through the whole day but helped with getting ready, organising things in the day and kept everyone calm! She also has the best Marys Poppins bag full of all kinds of useful things. Thanks a Erika for being part of the day and I hope the chickens are all ok."
Jan & Stephen, Wedding Photography, October 2017
"I have just received my wedding photos back today I am completely taken back and stunned at how beautiful they are. And also how perfect they are as well. Definitely deserves 5* and more; amazing photographer and loverly lady as well x"

"I can't praise Erika enough for everything she did on our wedding day. So professional from the get go, and everyone commented on how approachable she was.

Thank you again for all your hard work, Mr & Mrs Campbell xxx"

"We are over the moon with our pictures. Can't stop looking and having such a laugh. Brilliant memories. Amazing job Erika.
Emma & Richard, Wedding Photography, August 2017
"We definitely made the best choice choosing Erika to photograph our wedding! Erika is so professional but you barely know she is there, it was Luke having another friend at the wedding! She worked so well alongside our videographer and their ideas just bounced off each other, the day felt like it shot itself. Extremely laid back and so much fun! We had a blast riding down to the beach to take extra pics and video. Erika, you are awesome and we can't wait to see our pics."
Gillian & Betty, Wedding Photography, July 2017
"Fantastic photographer, a pleasure to get along with and easy to work with."

Laurentiu Craciunas, Professional Head Shots, June 2017
"We had the pleasure of Erika as our Wedding photographer on 18th March this year, we chose Erika after she shot our friends wedding in 2015. She is an absolute dream to work with, I could not recommend her more! From arriving on the morning Erika was not only snapping away but being so helpful doing dresses up helping to fasten/fix bracelets, and throughout the whole day! We've had so many comments from guests how fantastic she was (at both photography and just generally as a person!) The photos are absolutely perfect and I can't stop looking at them, Erika manages to capture moments so naturally and it's just amazing! Thank you Erika xxx"
Robyn & Dale, Wedding Photography, March 2017
"Erika photographed our wedding in April and we are thrilled with the results! Our photos are absolutely stunning and have made us feel really special. Erika was brilliant to work with from start to finish - very professional, really clear and happy to answer questions about what her packages include and how they work, and relaxed, reassuring and organised on the day. She is friendly and nice to chat with, but also has a gift for melting into the background when appropriate - there are some beautiful pictures of moments where we didn't even realise she was there. We couldn't be happier and would absolutely recommend her services. Thanks so much Erika!"
Lucy & Gerry, Wedding Photography, May 2017
"I've had the pleasure of working with Erika on numerous occasions for various photoshoots and weddings . I am a makeup artist and my portfolio is very important in attracting clients and thanks to the stunning pictures Erika has produced my portfolio looks amazing. We have had two photoshoots featured in ETC magazine north east which we are very proud of and I can't wait to work with her on future projects. Erika is talented, professional, warm, friendly and a very laid back lady... you'd be crazy to look anywhere else for your photography needs."
Nicola Quimby, MUA Contributor, March 2017
"Erika is not only a very talented photographer who captures and creates stunning memorable photographs she is also very professional and friendly. As a wedding florist I have found her to be one of the most approachable photographers in the industry, not only was she willing to allow me to share some of the images she had taken of my work she also sent me various file sizes of all of the photographs that showed my work off at its best, which there were a lot! For any couple looking for a wedding photographer Erika comes highly recommended by me and I hope to work with her again in the future. Amy - Thoughts of You Wedding Flowers"
Thoughts of You Wedding Flowers, Wedding Contributor, March 2017
"Over the moon with the photographs, which seem to have captured everyone, and I know will be a great comfort and joy for my mum.Thank you so much for your patience and kindness on the day.

Thank you Erika for looking after us, for fitting in so well with all our guests and for capturing our day so beautifully!"

Toni & Gemma, Wedding Photography, October 2016
"Erika has been absolutely fantastic, from the start of our journey with her right up until getting our pictures of our big day. We enjoyed our engagement shoot with Erika and she did an amazing job making us comfortable and planning our important wedding shots.
On our wedding day she took care of all the shots we asked for as well as capturing so many (and varied) candid shots of our guests, making for some funny and moving memories. We would recommend Erika unreservedly and will definitely look for an excuse to have her work with us again! Thanks so much."
Ella & Jonny, Wedding Photography, September 2016
"Erika has such vision. Her work is consistent and beautiful. I have rarely met someone in this profession who attends to such detail. She is able to convey emotion and beauty in everything."

Katie & Ian, Wedding Photography, November 2015
"Erika is not only incredibly talented and fun to work with: she's also one of the most patient people I have ever met!

I have no hesitation at all in recommending her. Thank you Erika! Xx"
Christine & Richard, Wedding Photography, November 2015
"Erika is one of the most talented photographers I've worked with! I've never been so comfortable on a photo shoot before with her relaxed and quirky personality she is one of those photographers that soon as you work with her you know that the pictures are going to be amazing! She knows just how to get the perfect lighting and shot to suit the individual.She brings out the best in you. I can't wait to work with Erika again in the future."

Nikki & Michelle, Wedding Photography, July 2014
"Erika is the friendliest, most helpful professional photographer we've had the pleasure of coming into contact with. She's not in your face or overly bossy, and likes to get to know you prior to the event so that the pictures do your day justice. Many of our guests commented that she felt like just another guest rather than being a photographer."
Sheila & Jack, Wedding Photography, November 2015
"Erika came to my home to do a shoot for my 10 month baby boy. She was very friendly, professional and gentle with my son which was important for me. Erika is very easy to get along with and understood what we wanted in regards to the photos. I would highly recommend Erika, the quality of her work is fantastic. I am extremely happy with my photos. Thank you!"
Elodie, Baby Portrait Photography, December 2015
"Erika is a genuine, down to earth photographer who listens to what you want and delivers. We are so happy we decided to get a professional photographer for our wedding as it all seems a blur now. It is wonderful to be able to relive the day through beautiful pictures. Several of our guests also commented on how lovely Erika was on the day. Erika is genuinely interested in your story. She takes time to guage your personality which is important to the feel of the photos. Unobtrusive and gracious. Also has great package options and add ons which you can choose but only if you want them. Fabulous! Just what we wanted. Thank you Erika."
Mr. & Mrs Maughn, Wedding Photography, September 2015
"Thank you so much for my beautiful USB!! And thank you for the day, I love the photos"
Grace and David, Wedding Photography, August 2015
"Erika has been a joy to have as our wedding photographer. She has been very reliable, sending frequent email updates and answering our questions clearly. She was very friendly and polite with all the guests, so she slotted into the busy day easily and naturally. We have received beautiful photos from her - a perfect mix of posed and natural pictures to accurately reflect the day - and can't wait to choose some for our album and display some in our house! We also loved that she included an engagement shoot to get to know her and get used to the camera before the wedding, as it meant that when she arrived on the morning of the wedding we were already familiar and relaxed and she fit right in.
All in all we would thoroughly recommend her. :)
Lewis and Caitlin Meadley, Wedding Photography, July 2015
"You were just brilliant and the nicest lady I could have wished to spend the day being photographed by or just being around... Can't wait to see the pictures!"
Suzanne & Troy, Wedding Photography, June 2015
"When I first opened the door, I was a bag of nerves. I am not a natural model, and had no idea what to expect. Five minutes after setting up, and we were already chatting like we had known each other for years. Erika has a wonderful ability to make you feel calm, comfortable and in control. She is as personable as she is professional. Every shot was shown to me for approval before we moved on, and I really felt as though she valued my input on the direction of the shoot while providing strong aesthetics of her own. She was sensitive to my requests and ideas, and helped me to realise them with a smile on my face.
She went above and beyond what she needed to do to get as many diverse shots as possible, and it was absolutely clear that she has a genuine passion for what she does. She had a fantastic knowledge of lighting and composition, and took the time to explain how these elements would play out in each shot.
I had a fantastic time during my shoot, and would not hesitate to recommend Erika to anybody. If I have any local occasion in the future that calls for a photographer, I absolutely will be hiring her again!
CH, Boudoir Photography, June 2015
"Thank you Erika for being our wedding photographer, after our initial meeting with you there was no doubt in our minds that you would put us at ease on the day and create wonderful memories for us to treasure. We were not disappointed, our pre wedding photo shoot allowed us to feel comfortable in front of the camera and within minutes we were feeling less awkward and soon found we were really enjoying ourselves, coming away with some stunning photos. Your easy and friendly manner makes you feel less like you have a photographer at your wedding and more like an another wonderful guest who is sharing your day, you seemed to know exactly how we were feeling taking us off on the pretense of a few more photos just so we could have a couple of quiet minutes alone to gather our thoughts, thank you so much, it was a moment of quiet and calm in a wonderfully busy day. We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer you somehow managed to capture the entire mood and feel of the day perfectly in your photographs, we now have wonderful moments of memories captured to look back on. If we require photography in the future we will 100% be contacting you! I would not hesitate to recommend you to all our friends and family, as I know they will not be disappointed in any aspect of the service you provide, from your amazing photography to your warm and professional manner, Erika you rock."
Charlotte and Mick, Wedding Photography, September 2014
"My now 'husband' absolutely loved the photos. He was totally gobsmacked! Thanks again for everything X X"
KW, Boudoir Photography, May 2015

Elizabeth & Ian, Wedding Photography, May 2015
"Erika is amazing! She is not only a photographer but like your wedding planner as well! Helping me with my dress and keeping everyone in check! We got married at 5 so there was so little time to squeeze everything in but Erika managed amazingly well! Our pictures are amazing, we really do love them and they are more natural than the posed type which I absolutely love! Thank you so much Erika xxx"
Rachael & Scott, Wedding Photography, April 2015
"Erika you are fantastic. We feel so lucky to have found you to be our photographer at our wedding. You put us completely at ease and knew exactly how to capture the entire feel of the day. We've just received our album and slide show and are blown away, thank you, they are better than we ever could have imagined xx"
The Ellis Family, Wedding Photography, March 2015
"Erika is such a friendly, approachable and all-round lovely person, with an incredible talent of capturing the most special moments so beautifully. The photos from both our engagement shoot and our wedding were everything we hoped for and more. Erika really listens to what you want and was such a calming presence to all involved on the day. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Erika to our family and friends, and will never tire of looking at the amazing photos she took from our special day! Thank you so so much. xoxoxox"
Hannah & Chris, Wedding Photography, January 2015

Matt & Laura, Wedding Photography, December 2014
"Thank you so much it will take us a bit of time to pick the ones we want [for our album] as we love them all and thank you again for making us feel so relaxed and chilled out x"
Denise & Ron, Wedding Photography, September 2014
"We cannot thank Erika enough for everything she has done for us. Erika is incredibly professional and organised she even offered to help in other areas of the wedding where we were having problems! The engagement shoot was brilliant and the wedding day photos are amazing. On the day Erika felt just like another guest which in turn made everyone relaxed and happy to have their photo taken. The support Erika has given us has been fabulous and not just on the wedding day but from the moment we booked her she has been a pleasure to work with."
Amy & Kev, Wedding Photography, May 2014
"Our wedding was small and intimate, we were surrounded by our family and friends helping us to celebrate our special day. There were lots of smiles and a great deal of happiness in the room and Erika captured the essence of the day in the photographs. Many of our guests have commented on this, saying that she did a great job, one comment – they are fantastic and really capture the day’. Other guests commented on Erika’s friendly approach to photographing the wedding and the unobtrusive way in which she takes the shots. Even better from our point of view we both look fab on some of the photos – well done Erika! Ps Erika is also very well organised and that helps to reduce your stress levels on the run up to the wedding."
Cheryl & Kevin, Wedding Photography, April 2014
"I had the best time working with you! OMG I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THESE! You are a genius! They look so awesome. The background pops right out at you. I like them all equally lovely! :-)) Anyway thank you tons and tons and had so much fun. look forward to future collaborations."
Trixie Blue, Portraits, March 2014
"When Jessie and I set the date for our civil ceremony, one of the very first things we did after deciding on our date and our venue was to get in touch with Erika to see if she was available to take the photographs. Luckily she was and after looking at our final album, we know that we had definitely made the right choice. She was extremely professional and put everyone at ease straight away. Looking through the prints, she really has brought out the best in everyone and captured each special moment beautifully. This is just as well, as on the day they all passed by so quickly! She has left us with an album which we will cherish forever, so we just wanted to say thank you for helping to make our day, one we will never forget."
Sarah & Jessica, Wedding Photography, December 2013
"So many guests at our wedding commented on how lovely Erika was; she made even the most camera shy amongst them feel at ease. She managed to capture such beautiful moments and integrated so well on the day it felt like having a friend take the photos. The service both before and after was exemplary, and we heartily recommend her work!"
Kirsty & Frazer, Wedding Photography, November 2013
"I LOVE the photos!! Thank you so much for being so brilliant on the day and taking such amazing photos."
Sarah & Andy, Wedding Photography, November 2013
"I can’t recommend Erika highly enough. We hired Erika to photograph our wedding in 2013. She is absolutely lovely and instantly made something we were nervous about easy and fun. Erika really listened to what we wanted and encouraged us to be a part of the creative process so that now we have pieces of art that are very much ours and we will cherish forever. Her technical skill has allowed us to be more adventurous and choose some very stylised approaches, such as a film noir pre-wedding shoot and 1930’s ‘Golden Age of Hollywood’ style wedding portraits, in addition to the soft dreamy pictures which catch all the tiny details of our day in a beautifully romantic way.
As well as being a very talented photographer, she is a great ‘people person’ and worked hard to make us feel relaxed and confident when we both started out self- conscious and a bit insecure. Erika made doing our pictures one of the best bits of the whole wedding experience. I would use her services again in a heartbeat."
Shona & Andrew, Wedding Photography, November 2013
"We couldn't have wished for a better photographer. You captured it perfectly and the photos are excellent. You were also really laid back on the day which put us at ease and make everything go smoothly. When we got our CD it arrived in a lovely box which we definitely did not expect. So thanks again for everything!"
Mieke & Tom, Wedding Photography, October 2013
"I just wanted to say thanks for all your hard work and the time effort and assistance you afforded us with the whole thing. Craig and I hate our photo taken but we felt at ease for most of the day at least. As for the album its-self comments such as stunning, gorgeous, amazing, beautiful and the best they have ever seen area few of the comments we have had from those who have seen it. I would just like to say thank you so much for the day you captured for us. it was a pleasure having you there immortalising our day for us. I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone looking for a photographer for their wedding in the future."
Glenda & Craig, Wedding Photography, September 2013
"Thank you for being part of our day, you were fantastic!! Xx"
Laura & Matthew, Wedding Photography, July 2014
"My Wedding day could not have gone better. Erika was very professional and friendly she is a credit to the profession."
Robert and Amy Bagley, Wedding Photography, September 2013
"We are absolutely over the moon with the photos so thank you so much!"
Caroline & Keith, Portrait Shoot, July 2013

Tanith McLeod, Model Extraordinaire, June 2013
"Erika, you're so damn good at your job!! They're great!! Thank you very much!!"

Erika was friendly & professional and the end results are fantastic. I would highly recommend Erika and look forward to working with her in the future."
Sabrina Peppiatt, Model, May 2013
"When I first spoke with Erika Tanith about an art project that I wanted to have photographed she was passionate, encouraging, organised and professional. She was very attentive to my ideas for the photo shoot and also gave excellent creative input, which made the experience really enjoyable and the results even better than I had hoped. In addition, Erika gave me valuable advice regarding potential marketing opportunities. She has been a pleasure to work with throughout the project. I look forward to our next photo shoot in a few weeks’ time."
Catherine Bennetts-Cash, Product & Arts Commission, January 2013
"WOW. They are ... awesome! That's really all I can say!"
Kit Darling, Modelling Commission, February 2013
"Erika is a great photographer to work with, I have worked with many and Erika is deffinately one of my favourites, I felt very comfortable at all times which was especially important as most shots were almost naked, she was fun and easy going and I can not wait to see the images as the ones I have already seen are looking great!"
Holly Standing, Professional Model, February 2013
"I worked with Erika on a shoot modelling merkins for an arts and crafts book, i was greeted warmly and made to feel comfortable throughout the shoot, it was great to work with someone who is very professional and smiley! I highly recommend her to work with and look forward to shooting again with her in the future!"
Rebecca Scope, Professional Model, February 2013
"I wanted some new, fresh photos taken of me and I didn't hesitate to ask Erika again after the Urban shoot back in March. The Boudoir shoot went really well and I was beyond pleased with the end shots, professional and slick. Just what I was after. On set I felt relaxed and comfortable when the photos were being taken. Working with Erika is always a great experience."
Kat Poland, Boudoir Photography, November 2012
"Erika is a photographer who really captures the art in her photos whether it's beauty and satire or Grimm and gore! She’s definitely a lady I would work with again."
Fifi Galore, Performer, November 2012
"Erika Tanith has been our lead photographer at the last two big events we’ve run, and we’re trying to secure her for the next. Her photography is fabulous, capturing the essence of the performers and their performances. What makes her work so exciting to us at Etrois, especially for our events, is that she can work with movement, and doesn’t need shots to be staged, or posed. She is a pleasure to work with, very proactive and passionate, and on behalf of Etrois, I would recommend her for any event you are looking to capture through the lens."
Ellouise Hempstead, Director, Etrois, November 2012
"I love it thank you. Print arrived in a large envelope doubly reinforced with card. Much preferable to using a tube as it's always awkward trying to get the curl out of them. Beautiful photo, I can't wait to get it on the wall."
Shellie, Print Purchase, October 2012
"I had a great shoot with Erika on Sunday; Erika made me feel so comfortable and made the Autumn shoot great fun. I love the wonderful photo's and really appreciate Erika's advice and knowledge of photography :) Thanks again! Louise xxx"
Lou, Lifestyle Shoot, October 2012
"My band the Hypnotix State played a show at BarLoco a few weeks back. Erika did some wonderful photos capturing raw emotion, energy and the superb lighting in the room. She is a progressing talent who is diverse, passionate and serious about her work. I look forward to working with her again."
Robert, Hypnotix State, Gig Pictures, October 2012
"Our service from Erika Tanith was fantastic. She asked us what we wanted and how we wanted the pictures and delivered exactly what we had requested. Erika is lovely to work with and her work is fantastic. I highly recommend Erika Tanith Photography and I look forward to working with her in the very near future."
Stephen Hardy, Head Chef at The Gourmet Spot in Durham, May 2013
"I did a photoshoot with Erika a couple of weeks ago. As a burlesque dancer, I have a lot of pictures of me performing, but I wanted to show a different side. Erika has fantastic ideas and is very imaginative, she knows straight away which shot is going to work or not, and which angle to use to make the model look good. We did many great pictures with very different atmostpheres in only a few hours, and I am thrilled with the results. She is also a lovely person who makes you feel very at ease straight away, and I would definitely recommend her."
Betty Bang, Modelling, September 2012
"These look great - thanks so much! Josh and I both had a great time today... Thank you for being so thorough and professional and helpful with every step of the process. I look forward to working with you again!"

The Forbes Family, Birthday Party Commission, August 2012
"The service from Erika Tanith Photography was fantastic. Her genuine ability to make us feel relaxed and comfortable during the photo-shoot helped get the most out of us. Her extensive knowledge of the equipment she used made the setting up of the shoot appear quick and simple. Knowing that we were in such good hands made the day hugely enjoyable! The end results were truly amazing and impressed both friends and relatives. We would highly recommend Erika Tanith Photography, and look forward to working with her again in the very near future!"
Aarron & Ryan, Artistic Commission and Portraits, June 2012
"Huge thanks to Erika Tanith photography - made me feel really at ease and had great fun doing these shoots - great value for money for a local talent."
Kerry, Cherish the Dress, April 2012
"On my wedding day my photographer, Erika, was unobtrusive and she felt like part of the family. On the day everyone said how brilliant she was and my photos of the day were better than what I could've wished for. I would always recommend Erika to all my family and friends."
Fiona & Brian, Full Day Wedding, May 2012
"I used Erika Tanith Photography for my wedding. She took pre-ceremony shots at the hairdressers and at home whilst the make-up was being applied, obviously for the ceremony and also for the party afterwards. Erika's friendly approach felt that she was a genuine guest of the wedding. She was professional and cheerful throughout. I would always recommend Erika to anyone with photography needs."
Jo & Glen, Full Day Wedding, May 2012
"I am really impressed by the service provided by Erika. I'd gone to her when struggling for a creative direction, and left it all to her. She produced a number of great photos with varied poses and locations. Would definitely use again."
Mark, Guitarrist Promos, April 2012
"What can I say other than fantastic! We wanted some family photos to cherish and a friend recommended using Erika. We didn’t know much about her so I gave her a ring and following a chat about what we were after we decided to arrange a shoot. I am so pleased we chose Erika as the end product was stunning and during the shoot she managed to make the kids feel at ease whilst managing to get them to listen to her. I was a little disappointed when she confirmed that she didn’t do babysitting as a sideline!
The Saturday afternoon we spent with Erika was great and we ended up with some fabulous family photographs which we’ll always treasure. I would not hesitate in recommending Erika to anyone who wants a friendly and professional service with excellent results.
David, Family and Children's Portraits, March 2012
"We had been thinking about getting some portraits taken of our dog Butters for quite some time, pug shots, if you will. Erika was recommended to us by a couple of friends, so we decided to book her for a shoot. Butters is a bundle of energy at the best of times, never mind when he is the star of his very own photo shoot, but Erika handled him brilliantly. She was very patient and some how managed to get him to strike a variety of poses, and we were blown away by the results! We would not hesitate to recommend Erika for any occasion, she offers great value for money and a highly professional service. If Butters could speak, we know he would agree too!"
Sarah & Jessie (and Butters), Pet Portraits, May 2012
"I just want to say a big thanks to Erika – I’m thrilled with the photos. I haven’t been to many shoots but found working with Erika to be both professional and fun - she has a good way of making you feel at ease. She came up with some really cool themes for the shoot, but also listened to the ideas I had, and this meant the pictures really reflected my personality. I would like to work with her again."
JC Carver, Actor's Head Shots, March 2012
"Great shots! Erika has a true talent for capturing the perfect "killer shot". We recently played a gig in Newcastle with Erika taking pictures I could see she was getting up close an personal with the bands. After seeing the photographs afterwards I was gob smacked! Super amazing quality photos and amazing angles that I had never seen much of before at these types of gigs. Excellent work and I would definitely recommend her work to anyone putting on gigs or any other type of event that a photographer is needed.
I also have to mention her prices are at a great affordable rate considering the work and amazing outcome of the photos I was considering paying more! Great work Erika I will definitely be using her services again!"
Lee Walsh, HxSxA Gig Pictures, April 2012
"Thank you for the great work you did for our daughter's wedding (Jennifer and David)- the album etc are fantastic."
Pam, Wedding Photography, May 2013
"The photos that Erika took of my son, Thomas, are fantastic! I will be getting all of them produced into a photo book. She was very patient in taking the shots as it can be rather difficult for a 2-year-old to sit still and pose. I would highly recommend Miss Tanith and can't wait for the next shoot."
Joanne, Children's Portraits, March 2012
"I was very impressed with the way in which Erika works, she is insightful and thorough before taking each shot, considering lighting, angles and composition. I'm very pleased with my modelling portfolio. I was also impressed by the way in which Erika engaged within the shoot on location, and took every opportunity to explore her creativity and she is very easy to work with, I felt at ease and happy with direction, and the pictures we had taken worked really well on the basis of a grunge theme. It was apparent that Erika is a passionate photographer with real insight, she knows what works well."
Katherine, Modelling Portfolio, March 2012
"Erika shot my wedding and she did it with grace and style.
It's only one day and it's pretty special but you don't get much left over after a week. Erika made sure our memories were cemented in stunning shots, touched up like you wouldn't believe, in personalised and well thought out albums that will never date.
She listens to what you want and delivers just that but she'll certainly, very gently, talk you out of ridiculous mistakes that you'll regret later.
The wisdom she brings to her work is phenomenal and, boy! Does she care about doing a good job!
No matter what package you go for, the service and product you get will be worth more than you'll pay.
Her personality will bring out the best in your guests and she's like a bride whisperer for calming your jitters.
In short Erika made our wedding and we will never in our lifetimes be able to thank her enough.
Why are you still reading this? Message her already!"
Jennifer & David, Wedding photography, May 2013
"Fantastic photographer, very friendly and approachable and at excellent rates. Took some great shots of our border terrier Milly, both indoors and in the surrounding countryside. Very impressed with getting the pictures the very next day. Milly thought she was great too!"
Alan & Maureen, Pet Portraits, February, 2012
"Thank you for doing such an amazing job at our wedding. The photos are exactly what we wanted - beautiful and natural. So glad we found you to share our day - we love your style!!!"
