for the newly engaged...
Aside from being a bride myself, I’ve been in the photography biz for over a decade. I’ve learned a thing or two about weddings - this includes the good and the stressful. The best way to share what I’ve learned is through a bit of wit and sarcasm with a side of margarita.
You Are Enough!
Weddings are a celebration of our lives! They involve our communities and our families. You have found another person that you want to commit your life to, spend all your time with, and snore next to in bed. For life! This is the CORE of a wedding. This is marriage.
And then there is the wedding industry. I guess you could say that this page is just a part of it with "tips and tricks" on how you should or shouldn't plan your wedding day. I certainly don't want this page to be a spool in the wheel. You see, the wedding industry yells, no SCREAMS, that your wedding day will be "the perfect day." In fact, they tell you that this day will be the best day of your life. A day with every detail planned to the nines, coordinated perfectly, and filled with curated things for your guests to feast their eyes upon. For the love of all that is bacon, I hope your wedding day is not the best day of your entire life. And I mean that. I hope you have many, many great days before and after and in-between. Your wedding day is a celebration of ALL of those days...past, present, future.
Let me preface what is below with a few... notes, if you will. There is so much inspiration, blog posts, and Pinterest boards out there in the interwebs. Some couples love the entire wedding planning process, the pomp and circumstance of a time of their lives where everything is curated! Some couples. For others, the wedding planning process is described as overwhelming and frustrating. It's considered a process with a never-ending to-do list that takes you down a rabbit hole you feel as though you will never crawl out of.
It’s your engagement. It's your wedding. It’s whatever you want to friggin' make of it.
so, I am going to tell you this one thing: YOU ARE ENOUGH. No matter what you read or don't read on this page, I want you to remember that.
Let's Create An Experience Together...
...cause we're all about couples doing things their way. but with purpose.

I saw Erin's work on Pinterest and instantly knew she was the perfect
photographer for our elopement. She went above and beyond to help us every
step of the way, including referring us to our wonderful officiant and providing lots
of insight about Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Her pricing and contracts
are so straightforward and reasonable, which speaks greatly to her
professionalism and reliability. The day of, she captured our personalities
beautifully, never putting us in cheesy poses. Our day was an absolute fairytale
and thanks to Erin, we have the pictures to prove it.

Erin and her team are amazing, really. We are photographers as well, and alllllll
throughout the planning process and even after the wedding, people asked us if it
was hard to pick a photographer for our own wedding- not at all. Erin was a
breathe of fresh air during our hectic day. She was timely, fun, creative, and most
importantly for us, down to earth. There is something so important about meshing
with your photographer that really lends to the best pictures, and we definitely had
that. I am so grateful that we picked such a fun team. Thanks Erin!

Erin Morrison Photography is one-of-a-kind. Erin is incredibly down-to-earth,
genuine, and talented. She loves getting to know people, and she is a natural
storyteller. We found Erin through Wedding Wire; out of all the photographers that
we looked at on Wedding Wire, her photos caught our eye and made us stop and
look. Her photos are very authentic and incredibly artistic. She was able to take
two slightly photo-awkward people and make us feel comfortable in front of the
camera. Our engagement and wedding photos are literally art. We will treasure
them forever. We would recommend Erin to anyone looking for an authentic,
professional, talented, easy-to-work-with wedding photographer. She won't

If you are looking for an engagement and/or wedding photographer look no
further! Erin is so talented and has incredible vision!! Like most couples, my
husband and I are not professional models so did not know what to do for a photo
session. However, Erin made us feel so comfortable the whole time like we were
spending time with a friend instead of having our pictures taken. On our wedding
day, Erin was able to get the most amazing photos in a short amount of time so we
could spend time with family and friends! HIGHLY recommend!
Michelle + Matt
If I could leave 6 stars I would! All the praise and good reviews in the world would
not do justice to the incredible work Erin and her team does. As if the fantastic end
product wasn't enough, she is also the kindest, most personable person. She
makes what can often times be a stressful and hectic day go by without a hitch!
Erin had a way to make you feel so comfortable and loved and I think that's huge, especially on your wedding day!
Kelsey + JP
I'm a huge photo hoarder so a good photographer was important to me and when I saw Erin's work I instantly fell in love. When we met her, it was not a disappointment! As it was our first professional photoshoot she made it easy and fun and never missed a beat! She did our engagement and wedding photos and
I'm completely obsessed with both! She gave us pictures to treasure for a lifetime
and I could never pay enough for that- she's not just a great photographer but a
great person. We'll never go to anyone else for photos!
