Erika is incredible! Our pictures are absolutely amazing. She captured our family so perfectly!!! Thank you so mich for capturing this moment in our lives so incredibly beautiful! Erika was so patient working with our 9 month old son close to bedtime. She took the time to get everything and more that we asked for. We booked the shoot with her for our family vacation week. Erika was quick to respond to messages. Was so accommodating to our limited schedule. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a family photographer

Erika was absolutely amazing. I was somewhat hesitant for a professional newborn shoot but my wife talked me into it, and after she left I told her it was worth every dollar. She spent a ton of time with us, was super patient and so easy to work with for the entire time. Not to mention the actual photos came out awesome!! Highly recommend.

What a total pro. Before Erik started taking our photos, she mentioned that she wasn’t feeling well. I wouldn’t have known if she didn’t mention it! She was warm, fun and patient with my two year old son. My husband who normally hates this sort of thing even had a great time. Most importantly, our photographs are beautiful and will only become more meaningful to me as my son grows up. I’ll always be able to come back to this little moment. Erika’s prices are fair and her online payment system made life super easy. She’s quick to respond to emails. Her location and styling advice was also extremely helpful. She’s put a lot of thought into how she can make her clients happy. I’ll definitely be hiring Erika again in the future! �

Erika was very helpful from the beginning and responded right away to any questions that I had! She did an amazing job making our family comfortable during our maternity shoot and was able to help us determine what we should wear. She had great ideas on how to pose us, but also was amazing at capturing pictures with us just being ourselves!! I highly recommend Erika Rigger Photography to anyone looking to feel absolutely beautiful in their maternity photos!!!!

(2016) Erika was great! I found her online for a last minute beach maternity session. We ended up doing maternity photos, family photos and photos for my parents 40th wedding anniversary all in about an hour or so. It was a great experience and the pictures turned out absolutely beautiful. I was lucky to find Erika in a random search online! Everyone had a great experience and loves the pictures!!(2017) We used Erika again this year for more family pictures while we were on vacation. This time it was to take pictures of our newly formed family of 4! She took our maternity pics last year and I couldn't love a set of pictures anymore... until I saw the pictures from this year! She did an absolute wonderful job. Our kids warmed right up to her. She was fast with taking beautiful pictures even though are kids were cranky at times. She's always pleasant and flexible and a wonderful person to work with. Erika-I'll be in touch about next year's photos. This is quickly becoming a tradition. �

We hired Erika to take some family photos while we were visiting North Carolina for the Thanksgiving holiday. Since we are from out of town, Erika provided some excellent options of places to do the photos based on what we were looking for. Our daughter is 11 months old and had been pretty sick the few days leading up to our photos so she wasn't her normal smiley self the day of the shoot - there were a lot of blank stare looks at the camera! :) Erika was so patient and just all around lovely to work with and to top it all off, the pictures turned out wonderful!! I will definitely be calling her again next time we are down in NC!

I knew I wanted a lifestyle photographer to document my family following the arrival of our son. Erika and her work exceeded all expectations. She was on time, warm and friendly. She made my 2.5 year old daughter comfortable and worked around and WITH the chaos that is a newborn baby and a toddler. The pictures are GORGEOUS. Additionally, we had the pleasure of having her capture the craziness of our daughter and her pre-school classmates at Hullabaloo Academy. Honestly, I've never seen "school pictures" that made me want to buy ALL of them (even for the kids that weren't mine!) until I saw these! Every single 2, 3, and 4 year old had several beautiful, NATURAL portraits that captured their unique personalities. I highly recommend using Erika!!

Erika was wonderful to work with! She was so calm, patient, and easy going with my daughters. I teared up looking at the final images she sent. She captured memories to last a lifetime! I'm a photographer myself and always struggle to get pictures that I'm included in since I'm always behind the camera. I highly recommend Erika. She is phenomenal!

My family and I had Erika take family photos of us while we were on vacation in Surf City, NC. Our experience taking the photos went great even with two babies under the age of 1. The pictures were amazing and everyone was very pleased with Erika and the overall experience! I would highly recommend.

Erika was wonderful for our newborn session. She was professional, friendly, and incredibly patient. Our little one arrive 2 weeks early and Erika made scheduling a breeze. During the session she helped mom and dad get great shots without having to pose. And when attempting to get some shots with heirloom pieces she was so patient with our little one, who was having a bit of a moment. The photos are incredible and the prints we ordered came out great.

We wanted some family photos while we were at the beach over the summer and are so happy we found Erika. She was great working with our 6 month old and was able to get some really amazing shots. She made everyone feel very comfortable in front of the camera and was a real pro when it came to capturing the best light. The whole family loves our photos and will definitely consider using her again. I highly recommend Erika Rigger Photography.
