Owner and lead photographer of Erika Grace Photography, INC has 8 years of wedding experience and a formal education in photography from UCF with a Bachelor of Science. (Go Knights Class of 2015!)
With my experience you can expect a very hands on approach with direction and guidance. I am here to help you plan for a memorable and fun photography experience! Many of my clients say I have a sweet personality that has made them feel comfortable in front of my lens and I want to "click" with you too. :)
So, let’s get to "clicking" and making beautiful memories together!
I want others to feel just as inspired as me that anything is possible with a strong work ethic, faith & the right intentions. I'm a second generation business owner in my family!
I started my company in Florida, but in 2020 I had the opportunity to grow in North Carolina as well. I love the mountain air, hiking, meeting new faces, and enjoying the breathtaking landscapes to work in!
The bond I make with my clients is unmatched. Photographing couples and families is my passion. I genuinely care about how you feel and making a bond that lasts beyond than your wedding or portrait session.
Growing up we had antique family albums and old prints that I would have fun looking through. Those physical memories provided the special opportunity to take a glimpse into my family's past. I want my clients to feel the same appreciation and joy when looking back at their memories I capture.
I watched my parents build a tree removal business together in the 90’s. It was risky and scary for them. They did not have a lot of money or a higher education to justify their credibility to open a business. Financial freedom and abundance was placed on their heart but it required a risk. I’m thankful my parents did not allow fear to oppress them into thinking the American Dream was out of reach. I was once that little girl drinking a yummy 7/11 Slurpee on my dad’s very first work truck. I’m really proud of my parents and where we came from.

I am thankful to have had both sets of grandparents married 50+ years until they past away. I look at old black and white prints they stored in worn out albums and I think about all the love and memories they must have shared. Even the not so happy times, but they continued to choose each other and fight for a marriage that lasts. I can't help but feel inspired and I want to share a little piece of that hope with my couples. Classic black and white edits are my FAVORITE and will be included in your gallery!
2015 is special to me. The year my grit and faith was tested. I value education both in a hands on approach & with a formal education. So in 2015 I graduated with my Bachelor's degree in Photography from the University of Central Florida, two photography internships (Orlando Magazine and Snap! Orlando gallery) , and a few years of shooting experience under my belt. This was the year I took the leap of faith right after graduation to establish myself as a corporation and begin growing my brand. I feel very fortunate to be entrusted by so many couples and families with their photography experience since then!
In 2020 I celebrated my 5-year anniversary as Erika Grace Photography, Inc!
