Erika was very communicative from the get go, answering all my questions and putting us at immediate ease. She was punctual, prepare, and organized. Erika corralled our family, who are a bit nutty at times, with grace, control, and humor. I loved working with her and would absolutely recommend!
Erika did a great job at making sure our group looked wonderful during our photos! She is great at what she does.
I booked an engagement photo shoot with Erika. This was our first photo shoot so I wasn’t sure what to expect. I’m so glad I decided to book with Erika we did a sunset photo shoot on the beach and it turned out beautiful. She knew all the good spots, and made us feel so comfortable. Overall an amazing experience, can’t wait for our next one !
I had the pleasure of working with Erika for my branding photos, and I couldn't be happier with the results! From the moment we started planning the shoot, Erika was professional, attentive, and full of creative ideas.During the shoot, Erika made me feel comfortable, she really applies her skills to capture the true nature of what you do and your real personality! The attention to detail and quality of the images is wonderful.I highly recommend Erika for anyone looking for a talented photographer who truly cares about capturing your vision.
Erika is outstanding in every way, and I cannot recommend her highly enough!I contacted Erika on short notice, and she agreed to drive nearly two hours and take a 20-minute ferry to meet me for my proposal on a holiday weekend. The proposal and photo session felt seamless and easy, and my fiancée and I had so much fun. I loved working with Erika and would absolutely choose her again.
Erika is a complete natural. She makes the process feel effortless which is a sign of excellence considering her work involves unpredictable babies and children.10/10 recommend and will hire again!!
Erika was very helpful and I received the pictures in a timely manner. Outstanding work!!
I just want to say what a wonderful job Erika did with my branding photography! Not only do I love my pictures, it was just a wonderful experience. She knew exactly what to do and how pleasant she was in asking me to do different poses. Thank you, Erika! I loved it and everything turned out perfect!
Erika did newborn photos for us and we could not be happier! She was so easy to communicate with before the session. Day of the shoot our baby was fussy and she was so patient with her and was not in a rush. She provided us with a huge album of beautiful photos we will cherish forever. You don't need to look any further for a photographer!
Erika did my maternity shoot on the beach and did an excellent job. She was great about working around schedules/locations, keeping us informed, and the photos came out beautifully. She knows how to work the camera angles to get the best photos in the sun, surf, etc. and recommends great ideas. I felt she was priced fairly and reasonably and is definitely recommended!
Received our pictures and to say we are obsessed is an understatement. Erika did a wonderful job. We will definitely be using her again, next time we are in Wilmington!
We recently used Erika for some family beach photos. She did an excellent job! She suggested a great location, did a wonderful job handling all our different family members (a toddler to great grandparents) and the photos turned out beautiful. Would definitely recommend her!
We absolutely love the photos Erika took of our family while we were vacationing in Topsail! Despite a weather delay and a very windy day, Erika was able to capture our family perfectly and exceed our expectations. Highly recommend her to anyone looking for photos in the Topsail area!
We aren’t from the area, and I had found Erika online to take some family beach photos on our vacation. She loves what she does, and you can tell by how gracefully she works. She was incredibly fun to work with, and her pictures are absolutely beautiful. And I appreciate her patience and flexibility around my fussy 3 year old! Thanks Erika! ☺️
We were very happy with our experience with Erika. She took her time with our family and made sure each shot was just right. It was a delightful experience and now we have pictures that will last a lifetime!
Erika did a fantastic job of capturing our family. She was really good with our son and got him to cooperate and have fun at the same time. The pictures are everything we wanted and more! Highly recommend her and she will be our go to photographer from now on.
I found Erika to take photos for our beach trip since we would have both sets of grandparents together. She captured beautiful memories for us! She worked great with my two year old son and he is smiling in every picture. I highly recommend her! Thank you again
Erika is an amazing photographer. . She was so professional and captured wonderful pictures of our family that we will cherish forever. We had 6 adults and 6 young children and she managed it all very well. We would definitely use her again. Thank you Erika!
Erika is a beautiful Soul! She was so nice and worked with my family to capture our last pregnancy. I could cry with how amazing the photos turned out. Seriously if you are local. Use her for your photos you WONT regret it!!
Erika does fantastic work with the final album. We scheduled a family session on the beach, and she did an amazing job getting our two-year old to focus. Though summer is a busy season for her business, she kept us updated on the status of our final edited album, and personalized our pictures. Highly recommended for those with young children and family photo sessions on the beach.
Erika shot a newborn session for us and we just did a six month session with her too. Both times she was extremely patient and accommodating. She’s also very easy to talk to and she makes the whole process fun. Her suggestions were great and she was able to get the shot every time. All of our pictures have turned out great. I could not recommend her more. We can’t wait for our one year session!
Erika was wonderful to work with. She captured beautiful maternity pictures as well as when our little one arrived. She had great suggestions for location to give us the exact background we were looking for. Our newborn photos were done in home, so it was a laid back experience as new parents. She does her thing and finds the perfect lighting and poses for amazing pictures. Would definitely recommend having Erika capture the beauty of your family.
Love love love Erika! She was so accommodating and patient with us. She was fun and out pictures turned out so well. I am telling everyone I know to call her. So happy with her work. ❤️
Erika photographed my large immediate family, including siblings and their families while we vacationed in Surf City. She is so talented! Our photos turned out even better than we imagined and it is clear she loves what she does. I am impressed by her efficiency in photographing all of us, as individual families, as couples, as a large group and then dozens of cousin groupings, all within the beautiful “golden hour”light. She commanded the attention of even the littlest children and the proof is in the gorgeous, laughing, smiling, perfectly candid photographs. She captured the love and life within our memories from our vacation and we are so grateful.
An easy going experience. Erika is very enthusiastic and was amazing with our 3 year old. Pictures turned out amazing with high quality photo finishing. We plan on using her again next year!
Our pictures came out really nice despite the insane winds on the beach! Erika was quick to respond, friendly, fully present during our session and great with our kids.
Erika was amazing to work with! She met our family at a beach near Wilmington we were staying at. Beforehand, she fully prepared me for a photo shoot with 10 people and how to get everyone there on time and feeling their best! During the shoot, she was amazing! She was funny, nice, professional, and everything you would want in a photographer. She made it fun, got pictures of our extended family including 4 children (3 babies!) and captured life lasting pictures that we will cherish for years to come.
Erika is wonderful, we had a large family ages 9 months to 69 years old. She was able to capture such beautiful shots. THANK YOU for making this happen for my mom, she has been wanting family pictures for forever.
Our multi generational family of 15 had a fantastic experience with Erika. She came right to our beach house and took some truly fabulous photos. She was extremely friendly and worked great with the smaller children making it a fun experience for them.
We were vacationing from Ohio and wanted to have multigenerational family beach pics done while we were there. I honestly had NO idea where to start. I am beyond grateful to have found Erika! She was quick to respond to communications and provided a ton of information prior to the session that made preparation a breeze. She kept the shoot relaxed and the grandkids entertained, while making sure to capture just what I was looking for. Even my husband said it was actually fun! I just cannot say enough good things about our experience, it was wonderful from start to finish. Contact her - you will be so glad you did!
Erika did an amazing job on your family photos. She was great to communicate with before our session and she was very professional during our beach photos. She made all of us feel at ease and she was absolutely wonderful with our kids. I would definitely work with her again if we vacation in the area again! I recommend her to anyone!
Erika captured beautiful images of our family- even with a difficult 20 month old running wild on the beach! She was calm, professional and fun to work with. We will cherish these photos for years to come.
Update: We have now had Erika photograph our family four times and she does not disappoint! She perfectly captures our family with beautiful photos. Her photos are timeless. I highly recommend Erika!!!Erika has now taken our maternity photos, newborn photos, and one year photos for our family and has done an AMAZING job each time! She is so easy to work with, quick to respond, and so personable. I highly recommend Erika!! You will not be disappointed!!
My husband and I recently had our maternity pictures with Erika and needless to say she did an amazing job!! We are so pleased! We are so ready to meet our little one and have her take his newborn pictures as well!
Erika is amazing! We have now used her a few times for our family photos and special family moments! She is so easy to communicate with, is very professional but personable, as a photographer should be!She captures our family perfectly every time. She is able to make everyone comfortable and make our kids personalities shine! Erika gets beautiful family portraits and candid shots, which are my favorite! She has a great eye and our photos are always beautiful even in the midst of the chaos of wrangling children! We will definitely continue using her for all our family photos, she is the best and I can't recommend her enough!
Once again, an amazing experience all round! About a year ago, Erika captured my son's preschool photos. We loved them so much, we knew we had to have her do our family portraits. The whole session, from start to finish was so much fun and we all felt so comfortable throughout. Needless to say, the portraits came out beautifully!
We couldn't be happier with how our maternity and newborn photos turned out! Erika is an amazing photographer. She is professional, gives you great information before your shoot about what to expect, what to wear, etc., and she has beautiful visions for photos. We will definitely be using her again in the future!
I am so happy our research led us to Erika for our maternity photos. She was absolutely wonderful to work with. She made us feel at ease when both my wife and I are slightly awkward picture takers, and because of this our photos turned out beautiful. Erika is definitely a pro at finding the best scenery and lighting shots and we can’t even narrow down our favorites! We are looking forward to having her capture our newborn photos once baby arrives!!
I do not even know where to begin with how grateful I was to be referred to Erika for newborn pictures! Her upbeat attitude, friendly personality, and professionalism made it feel so natural. I was having issues finding someone with the right style and capturing the simplicity of our family in a photo. When I saw my friends maternity photos I knew immediately I wanted her to do my newborns! We hesitated for a moment to do in home -with me being a nurse, Covid, and having a premie baby but Erika wore a mask the entire time and I felt at ease with her in our home. I received our pictures today within the 2 week time frame as promised and they are flawless. I highly recommend her!!
Erika was professional, organized and provided a lot of information prior to the photo session to make it successful. She was on-time and worked well with our family. I would highly recommend Erika Rigger for your beach photos!
Erika did an amazing job of capturing special moments during our recent photo shoot. She made "herding" four children (5 and under), two sets of grandparents along with six sets of parents look like an easy task! Erika's ability to organize, all of us, along with taking pictures was nothing less than amazing. When we received our gallery, (which arrived days earlier than projected), tears were flowing at the moments she caught of the kids and adults. When it is time to schedule our next family beach photos, we will call Erika again!
Erika was great to work with! Our maternity and newborn pictures turned out AMAZING. We will use her for all future photography needs. Her prices are great and she is very talented at what she does!
Erika is fantastic! She is creative, artistic, and was so patient with our little ones. We will treasure the photos that she took forever. Family photos are the absolute best use of money when you do them with Erika. We enjoyed the entire process and can’t wait to go back to Topsail Island next year and have Erika take annual family portraits!
Erika was great with our kids and overall it was a laidback experience. Although both the weather and our small kids were somewhat uncooperative, Erika took some beautiful pictures which made a great use of the beach landscape and light. Highly recommended.
We had such an amazing time as a family capturing memories that we will have a life time. 3 generations just having fun and getting our pictures taken. COVID-19 may have changed our lives but we found away to capture this time together as a family. Thank you so much for our wonderful pictures! Totally recommend Erika if you are in the area.
Erika was so great to work with! Our family sometimes suffers from “awkward family photo” syndrome and Erika made us feel so at ease and natural. The photos felt like us. She captured our genuine emotion and the stage of life we are in with our boys. So happy with our experience and photos!
