Erika Peterson Photo
Here to capture genuine, whimsical, free-spirited love stories
I’m a Colorado-raised gal with a passion for documenting love stories. If I’m not behind the camera, you’ll likely find me trying out that new local restaurant, traveling somewhere on my bucket list, or belting out the words to Mr. Brightside.
My #1 priority is for you and your honey to enjoy your time together. I don’t care if it’s the two of you with your favorite mountain lookout or your favorite 100 people, this is YOUR day. You deserve to experience that soul-deep connection with each other amidst all the excitement.
I’m here to be your professional third wheel, lightening the mood and making sure you guys are comfortable. Photography is an intimate process, so it’s important that we vibe with one another. That way we can create authentic, non-cringey images together.

We couldn't recommend Erika enough! Leading up to our wedding, Erika met with us several times and asked very thoughtful questions showing us that she was attentive and considerate. We did a couples session to get our shyness out of the way and within minutes we felt comfortable and well-directed. There was a snow storm on our wedding day, but Erika showed up energized and well-prepared. It made all the difference! She has a knack for catching those one-off candid moments (you know, the ones with your real smile). When I look back at those photos, I am in that moment again and my heart is so full. Afterwards, our family and friends raved about our friend who did our photography, how professionally she conducted herself while also busting a move on the dancefloor when the time came. It was such a joy to have Erika with us - she truly brought out the magic of our snowy wedding day.

What. A. Delight. From planning to execution, Erika exceeded all expectations. If you want a photographer that truly cares, has an amazing work ethic, and has the BEST attitude - this gal should be your go to. When the day arrived, it was nothing but easy and smooth sailing. We had the shoot in the wee hours of the morning, Erika’s smiling face met us at Garden of the Gods and from there our grogginess turned into excitement! She had the coolest spots staked out prior to the shoot, and made the shoot so FUN and so EASY. We we walked, danced, laughed and had the best time. When you look at the photos you can see how comfortable we were and in that came some of our favorite shots. I can’t recommend Erika enough for all your photoshoot needs whether that be graduation, portraits or especially weddings. This girl is so talented in what she does and her passion for this craft exudes with each shot that goes from camera to client. I can confidently say we’ll be recommending her to all of our friends and family for the special occasions that come their way!

Erika has a knack for making you feel comfortable in front of the camera. She’s energetic, creative, and made our couples shoot feel so fun and authentic. We are naturally camera shy, but were amazed at how cute the pictures turned out. She truly cares about her clients, their visions, and knows what she’s doing. We can’t wait to have her photograph more of life’s events for us!

Our experience with Erika was one filled with highlights! We felt that she captured our love wonderfully. We are really happy with how these professional pictures turned out and we highly recommend Erika for anyone who wants to capture their magical moments.

Oh my gosh Erika is amazing. Her photos are not only gorgeous but she does a great job at taking care of her clients. We brought our three Labradors for our two hour engagement session with her and she did fantastic with them; giving them little chunks of cheese as treats, squeaking squeaky toys to get them to look her way, being so gentle & loving as one of our dogs likes to jump on people & even staying behind to walk with our more senior/ out of shape chocolate back to the car. She also carried our accessory bag around along with her camera just to help out & make things as comfortable for my fiancé & I as possible. When she says "Working with me is like hiring a professional third wheel" she means it 110%. If you're looking for someone who is going to make the experience as comfortable as possible & do anything in her power to meet your needs, you've come to the right photographer.

What do you consider your style to be? My style is candid and emotion-driven. I'm a sucker for natural movement and raw, love-filled moments. I take a personal approach, getting to know you and your partner before the big day. That way you can live in the moment together, knowing I've got everything I need to authentically capture your day.
What are your favorite kinds of couples to work with? I can't get enough of fun-loving, go-with-the-flow kinda couples. If the number one goal for your wedding day is to be yourselves and have a great time, then we'll definitely vibe. I'm here for all the off-roading, booty shaking, and belly laughing you've got!
Do you travel for clients? If so, where? YES I travel! Anywhere and everywhere! It's one of the things I love most.
What is your favorite part about a wedding? Far and above, my favorite moments are the in-betweens. The ones where you and your lover truly connect amidst the joyful chaos of your big day. Stolen glances, gentle touches, and heartfelt smiles. That's the stuff I live for.
