"Erica and Chad are so knowledgeable about Yosemite, you even get a fun personal tour!"

- Natalie + Javier

I booked Erica for a sunrise engagement shoot in Yosemite and her work was stunning! She and her husband Chad were so kind and helpful throughout the shoot. She had great direction and has natural talent. Her photos were amazing 👏 You won't regret booking her. Both Erica and Chad are so knowledgeable about Yosemite, you even get a fun personal tour!

"got our photos back FIVE DAYS after the wedding!

- Kayla + Jordan

Erica did our engagement session in Yosemite in October 2019. She immediately made my fiancé and I feel comfortable in front of the camera. The photos came out absolutely stunning! Fast forward to our wedding day on 7/31/21. Erica and her husband Chad we’re truly amazing! They are the sweetest people. They rolled with the punches and even stayed late to make sure we got all of the shots we wanted. Erica got every shot we asked for & got our edited photos back to us FIVE DAYS after the wedding! We are so impressed with Erica and can’t wait to use her again in the future!

"Made us feel super comfortable and we actually had FUN!"

- Justine + Tobin

I booked Erica for a sunset couples photoshoot in Yosemite, and I was actually blown away by her photos, like I couldn’t believe it was my boyfriend and me!! I was absolutely obsessed with every single photo. We had never had professional photos taken, and Erica and her husband Chad made us feel super comfortable and we actually had FUN! Plus she got our photos back to us in less than a week! I HIGHLY recommend Erica and can’t wait for another photoshoot with her!

"She went above and beyond "

- Tori + John

I can not thank Erica enough for the fantastic work she did in photographing our wedding. She went above and beyond to ensure she understood exactly what we were looking for in photos, and I can't express how breathtaking the photos came out. Her professionalism, attitude, attention to detail, and ability to direct us so we could get gorgeous photos was more than we could have asked for. Her prices are reasonable, and her quality is impeccable. I highly recommend Erica Houck for any photographing needs, especially weddings. We will absolutely be reaching out to her again for more photos in the future.

"Our photos feel so 'us'...you will not regret Erica or her work"

- Lauren + Caleb

Erica last minute was able to our engagement session in Yosemite National Park. She is honestly one of the nicest, down to earth, understanding person that we know. we absolutely loved working with her and her amazing areas in the park to photographer and her willingness for adventure! Our photos feel so "us" and we adore them as much as we adore Erica. She is so easy, friendly, and communication is great. I wish she was doing my wedding!!! I know that I can always reach out to her about anything and she has helped with things other than photography. You will not regret Erica or her work. she is beyond amazing and I am so happy that I found her. her photos are amazing and so is she!
