Working with Erica was great! She was so easy to work with. She knew my fiancé and I weren't sure how to stand and pose and would ask use if we wanted assistance or not (and we did!). She was never annoying or overly suggestive as I have been in bridal parties where the... Read More photographer was like that. She also added the best touches AFTER our wedding. She surprised us with a wooden storage box for our wonderful wedding album. She also surprised us with a wooden box with a surprise 50 printed photos from her blog on our wedding. We had a winter wedding and she made us feel special/unique for having a winter wedding rather than making us feel odd about the rare seasonal wedding. She really embraced the atmosphere for our pictures. I adore looking back at our pictures and our canvas is in our bedroom and it is stunning. I found Erica from an old friend's wedding pictures and I always wanted to work with her. Once I found out her prices and I saw on her website where she talked about bringing lightness into special events, I knew she was the photographer for us! She is a magician with lightening. She is really such a joy to work with. I can't get over how special she made us feel with our winter wedding and how she surprised us with little touches after the event. Heck she sent US a thank you card for being her photographer - hand-written too! I mean that just doesn't happen any more people. Buy her highest package with the most benefits and perks in it. You'll be amazed at the memories you'll have forever in your hand.

Erica is fantastic! So professional, yet easy to work with- most of the time I didn't notice her taking pictures. And what awesome pictures they are! We wanted the classic, but also personal, poignant shots- and she came thru beautifully! Thank you so much for giving us... Read More such wonderful memories!

Erica, I just want to say thank you for coming out and capturing the memories made at my cousin's wedding.

I wish there were more than five stars to give Erica. She's the consummate professional, which makes her incredibly easy and fun to work with, but she also gets the job DONE without being bossy or demanding. She took our engagement photos in March 2017 overlooking Table Rock... Read More Lake and wedding photos in May 2017 in St. Louis and the images blew me away. Each one is more stunning than the next and she captured every detail I could have wanted but didn't even know to ask for. She traveled to St. Louis with ease and I never had to worry about a thing, she had everything prepared and handled. Not to mention that you get a bargain for what you pay compared to her professionalism and the quality of images you get. Hire her immediately!!!

My sister in law highly recommended Erica for our wedding photos, and I cannot rave ENOUGH about her. I was so impressed by how she wanted to get to know both my husband and myself before the wedding with a sweet questionnaire that she sent us. It made us feel very appreciated... Read More and well taken care of before we had even met her. Every conversation we had leading up to the wedding left me feeling more at ease. Then, when the big day came, she could NOT have been sweeter, kinder, or more helpful. Our wedding day was very cold and while walking around KC, Erica was kind enough to lend me her gloves so my hands could warm up. She took care of us all day long- whether it be helping me put my jacket on, fixing my hair in the wind, etc. It is the small things like that that really mean so much on the big day when so many other things are happening. She has the ability to stay calm, even in the midst of chaos. In addition to all of that, her pictures are FLAWLESS! Plus, she is very quick! She wrote her blog post of our day within 5 days of our wedding, and we had our proofs within 10 days. Erica is incredibly talented and has left us with gorgeous photos from our wedding day, that will be treasured forever. Our wedding day was amazing, and we have Erica to thank for a large part of that.

Our dear friends chose Turner Creative Photography for their wedding over 3 years ago.

Erica was the perfect answer to what I thought was going to be the most difficult decision I had to make for our wedding.

This review is long overdue as Erica shot my wedding in May of 2012. We hired her from Kansas and didn't get to meet her prior to my wedding due to my busy schedule (she offered!) but when I met her on my wedding day I was instantly comforted with her sweet, positive presence.... Read More She delivered on every single idea that I had, and then some. My only regret is that I did not plan ahead for staged photos BEFORE the wedding! That was my fault though as I thought we would have plenty of time after the ceremony, but I'm sure as any bride knows the day SERIOUSLY flies by!!! All of my guests commented on Erica's manners and on how well she blended in, capturing such special moments without making a big scene, which is an amazing talent. Also, we did not have to wait at ALL for the photos, she gave us a preview like seriously the next day and the photo CD shortly after. Her photos are so touching and timeless, and I would confidently recommend her to all of my closest friends. I wish I lived closer (we relocated to Colorado)so that she could be our family photographer, I seriously would consider flying her out here for a future maternity shoot. It was a blessing to stumble upon Erica & Turner Creative in my search for a wedding photographer, I seriously cannot imagine having had any other photographer on our special day.

I can't remember when I first saw Erica's photos, but I instantly fell in love. And I hadn't even met my future husband yet! So, when I did get engaged, I quickly contacted her. She's a good distance away from St. Louis, but she conveniently squeezed in a meeting with me when... Read More she was in town for another wedding. I could already tell her talent, but meeting her proved that she was kind and easy to work with. We booked her for our March wedding, and scheduled our engagement photos for that July. We got to work with Erica in both weather extremes - super hot and muggy for engagement shots and freezing on the wedding day! She was a pro in both! She really put as at ease, allowing us to be ourselves while she shot her amazing photos. Her eyes see things most people don't, and she's able to capture moments that are so special! We ordered her package that includes albums after both sessions - so we received an album of engagement shots that we used as a guest book and a larger album of our wedding. For both albums, she selected the photos and layout - and they were perfect - I didn't have to do anything! I was so afraid of having a thousand pictures and not doing anything with them for years after the wedding - so this was a huge plus for her to just take the reigns and make it happen. And, everyone we've shown our photos to are just amazed at the quality! We had a pretty small budget for our wedding, so I'm still amazed that we were able to get my dream photographer, with my dream albums, and even more so that she exceeded our expectations. We were so happy with Erica - so much that we plan on booking sessions with her for future life events - even if we have to drive to her or pay her extra to come to us! Best investment ever!!

Let me start by saying, photography for our wedding was my #1 priority. We got married at a location that was considered, "Destination" to us, so we had to find a photographer without recommendations from anyone we knew. We REALLY lucked out by finding Erica! She was so... Read More reliable, and prompt when answering questions, because we primarily talked through email. On the day of the wedding she was so friendly and patient with us. The groom does not like to make it easy to get pictures of him, and Erica did such a good job of getting him to warm up and relax for the pictures. She also was so open to any ideas that we had. It was also really important to me to have pictures of my flower girls who are at a difficult age to capture. Erica has great ideas for waiting and timing things out to better capture what we wanted. I only see Erica getting better and better at this because she just was so willing to do whatever it took. I hope we can find a way to work with her again some day!
