Mt Gulian Beacon New York Wedding

Erica is, without exaggeration, one of the most genuine, kind-hearted people I’ve ever met. You can’t help but feel uplifted and happy when she’s around. I knew within the first couple minutes of meeting her that we would get along great and that she was the right person to photograph our wedding. It was so important to us to find a photographer who we really connected with, and Erica was just that person! The thing that stood out to me about Erica’s photos was that not only did they look gorgeous, but she has this fantastic ability to capture real and raw emotion in a way that is so beautiful.

When we went to our engagement shoot, I was nervous because my now-husband is very shy and doesn’t like to have his photo taken. Erica immediately put both of us at such ease and by the end - we were all laughing and had the best time. She really does make you feel like the best version of yourself in front of her lens.

In the days leading up to the wedding, Erica continued to check in with us and even sent us little gifts that made us feel so appreciated and cared for. She arrived on our wedding day with a huge smile and a big hug - with such excitement and energy. She truly is phenomenal at what she does, and her second shooter was wonderful as well.

She even sent us a sneak peek the night of the wedding, and we were absolutely overjoyed. Her photos were beyond anything I could have ever hoped for, and captured what turned out to be the most magical day so perfectly. Her pictures made the day even better than we remembered!

We really can’t recommend Erica highly enough. We will be singing her praises for a very long time.” - Haylee + Brian // September 2018

What can we say about Erica and her team that others haven’t said already? When we saw her portfolio, it stood out tremendously from others, whether it’s the natural colors, lighting, or composition, we both knew she was one of the most skilled photographers we’d seen, and we knew we would love her to be our photographer. When we then went to her website and read a little bit more about her and her story, we both became wide eyed and knew this was definitely our photographer. Over the next few weeks/months, as we made facetime dates together, set up our engagement shoot, and finally met in person, we both knew not only would Erica be our photographer, she had become our friend as well.

Erica has a sweet disposition about her and is one of the nicest human beings you’ll ever get to talk to. She puts you at ease, makes the entire experience fun and very stress free – this is critical on one of the most stressful days of your life! She is excellent with communication, and her customer portal has all kinds of information that you didn’t even know you needed, and which will guide you throughout the whole process. She is quick to get you sneak peaks right away, which is fantastic since we all want to share those shots with friends and family right away. And once she sends you the final product, you will be blown away by the natural feel to each photo and how she captured each moment perfectly.

Planning your wedding is already difficult enough - things go wrong, vendors don’t get back to you fast enough or are vague with their information – but working with Erica is a breath of fresh air! She stays in constant communication with you, is always available to answer questions or brainstorm ideas, and smooths the process over with ease. Plus, her positive nature is infectious and will rub off on you, especially on your wedding day. I’ve seen stressed out moms, bridesmaids, and a bride go from looking a bit overwhelmed to just beaming and glowing once she shows up and starts snapping away.

Erica lives up to her company’s namesake ‘Sweet Alice’ because that’s what she is. The sweetest photographer (and person!) you’ll ever have the pleasure of working with. If you are considering hiring her for your wedding, take it from us – DO IT! It’ll be the easiest and one of the best wedding planning decisions you make!” - Christina + Jonny // June 2019

”From the very first time we spoke with Erica, we fell in love! Even though we were totally heartbroken that she was already booked for our wedding date, we felt so comfortable with and truly believed in Erica. we were totally excited to book her associates for our wedding!

Something I quickly learned was that when you book Erica for your wedding, you aren't only booking an amazing and kind photographer, but you are making a friend, who will be there for you EVERY SINGLE step of the way!

We definitely hit bumps in our wedding planning, especially when our wedding venue canceled on us only three months out from our wedding date! Having already secured all of our vendors, we were in complete panic mode. We had absolutely no idea what to do, so I texted Erica. Within twenty minutes (no exaggeration at all), Erica had suggested two possible venues, and after a few more hours, she found us even more available venues. Erica truly empathized with our difficult situation and worked so diligently to help us find a resolution. Through Erica and her contacts, we were able to secure our perfect wedding venue! I can honestly say that we would have been completely lost without her!

Erica's greatness does not end there! Even after securing an amazing new venue, we had wrinkles in our day, especially with scheduling, as our new venue was further away than originally expected. Erica helped us fix our timing and made sure everything would run seamlessly.

Not surprisingly at all, the day of the wedding came and her associates were amazing! They, like Erica, were so sweet, professional and of course, amazing photographers!!! They made sure to execute our wedding day schedules down to the minute! Even when the car for me and my dad ran late, they made sure to keep everything else on schedule. When I had questions, they had answers and we felt so comfortable to have them with us on our big day.

But to truly understand how amazing Erica is - she surprised us on our wedding day! Please remember, Erica shot another wedding all day, but went completely out of her way to be a part of our big day. As we cut our wedding cake, all of a sudden Erica was there with the biggest smile on her face and we knew our wedding day was complete and perfect!

And not that we were surprised, but we were beyond happy when we received our wedding photos (so quickly). The only problem we have is figuring out how to find enough space to display them all!!! We could not have been happier that Erica and her associates were a part of our big day!

Erica was 100% the best decision we made! She is incredibly kind, extremely skilled at what she does, and cares deeply about each one of her client friends. We never second guessed our decision to book Erica, and specifically, her associates. After meeting Erica, we knew that if Erica chose these associates herself, they would be great. They were not only great but exceeded all of our expectations.

I wholeheartedly believe that we would not have had the wedding we did without Erica! Thank you Erica and your associates for our making our wedding day perfect, and for giving us the best gift – our beautiful photos.” - Maria + Derek // October 2018

"Ah! Where to start - based on photo composition alone, Erica's work truly stands out with bright, clean photography and an amazing eye for detail, which is what drew me to ask her if she was free for our wedding in the first place. Matt and I got SO, so many amazing compliments on what we had to share from both the engagement shoot and wedding day. She knows how to make you/your spouse/your wedding party feel comfortable in front of the camera (especially with a partner who doesn't like having his photo taken all that much)! Also, digital photo turnaround time is super, super quick which was helpful (and exciting) for all of our eager family members looking for pictures from the big day! Erica was truly a blessing during our whole planning process, not just for the pictures, either. No one in either of our families had much experience with recent weddings, so Erica ended up helping me find a hairstylist, planned our whole wedding day itinerary basically, and also found time to clean my rings for me while I was getting into my dress! I truly cannot thank her enough for all of her help to make our day the best it could have been. The passion she has for weddings & photography is evident, and was very much appreciated - we'll be cherishing these photos and memories for years to come. Thank you, from the bottom to the top of our hearts!" - Nicole + Matt // June 2017
