About Erin

I stumbled upon a photography career the way many of us do these days, by working toward something else so hard and diligently that I lost my way, made a big move to a new place, and by realizing that what brings me the most joy could also bring joy to others. Waitress - turned travel agent- turned event planner - turned blogger - turned editor - turned Photographer. A long windy path that started in the rural hills of the Garden State with a little Pentax in the high school darkroom, going on hikes with my dad to fulfill assignments. Following a big bend to the University of Rhode Island gave me the best friends in the world, who I loved to document on film. A semester in Hawaii spending all my free time exploring and adventuring with camera in hand, all my beer money going toward film and developing costs. A post-graduation cross country trip snapping memories of 2 of my besties and I in a little car seeing the wilds of America with big, ecstatic eyes. A big move to Southern California to, as they say, find myself. What I didn’t find was the career I thought I wanted, the one I thought I was supposed to have. What I did find was true love. Three years later Nic and I followed that path back to Rhode Island, buying a house, rescuing a dog, traveling near and far -  and it came to me after the end of a series of unfulfilling jobs and disappointments. Maybe Photography is it. Maybe it has been it all along. My constant companion. My joyful hobby. Maybe that is what I want to do with my “one wild and precious life”. And so I did. And here we are.

Travel is my favorite thing in the world, seeing other places, cultures and especially eating delicious food.

About my approach:

I shoot primarily with natural light. You’ll find my style is soft and sun-kissed. Ever inspired by the timelessness of film, you can be assured your photos will never feel dated or trendy, but classically fresh. I may even shoot a few rolls at if time allows! So far I’ve had the pleasure of being featured in Food and Lifestyle publications like Edible Rhody, The Coastal Table, Rue Magazine and The Food Network to name a few. I’ve been lucky enough to work for many local small businesses (my favorite!) and also to shoot for larger brands like Talbots, Tarte, and Pier 1. I have gradated from the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD’s CE)  program in Digital Photography. 

I live in a sweet little bungalow in Lakewood, Rhode Island with my husband Nic and our crazy pup Mila.  Travel is our favorite thing in the world; seeing other places, cultures, and especially eating delicious food.  

In addition to snapping life, food, and fun, I also capture stunning weddings in Newport, Rhode Island, all of New England, and around the globe.  You can find my wedding work by clicking HERE, much of which has been published on Martha Stewart Weddings, Brides Magazine, The New York Times, The Knot, Style Me Pretty, and many more.
