Welcome to Erica Ann Photography and Fine Art! As a professional Portland wedding photographer, the temptation is to have people pose. But who wants cookie-cutter wedding photography? The truth is, great wedding photography happens when everyone is comfortable being themselves. That's why I love being one of Portland's photojournalistic wedding photographers.
As your Oregon wedding photographer, capturing the beauty of your northwest wedding is only the beginning. How those images are transferred to physical media is where the fun really begins! Using the best shots of your wedding, I create a custom album that you will love to show off to everyone you can. My real specialty is taking your favorite wedding photographs and putting them on canvas. I can print them on, paint them on, or both - it's up to you. I'm not just another Portland photographer.
I come to each wedding to capture the life and beauty of the day. My photographic style is a creative blend of fine art, portraiture and photojournalism. I use an artistic, natural lifestyle approach to portland wedding photography. With my lens, I watch your story unfold without trying to run the show or set up every shot. I will capture the serene moments of careful preparation and the spontaneous expressions of joy and celebration. I will document the striking details that you have spent hours planning for that might otherwise be lost forever.
As a Portland wedding photographer, I believe that the first purpose of a work of art is to convey truth and the second is to reveal beauty. I know that might sound a little corny, but there you have it. I'm not interested in a thousand posed pictures, (but maybe ten.) I don’t want you to look back on your event and think, "Oh, I remember when we posed for that and when the photographer made us stand there and then she couldn’t get the flash right."
That is not my idea of successful wedding photography.
My goal is to stay out of the way as much as possible on the day of YOUR wedding, and be there to photograph the best you. I do not only want to simply make a visual record of your wedding, but help you relive the emotions, beauty and truth in your life whenever you look through your custom wedding album.
Wedding packages start at $2995. I am available for travel as long as you can get me there and give me a place to sleep!
Custom Wedding Albums
Canvas Cover Watercolor
These albums are flush mount with thick lay-flat pages and no middle gutter. The inside pages are printed on either Art Watercolor, Art Linen, Art Recycled, Satin UV, or Pearl UV press paper and adhered to heavy black cardstock. This allows each spread to lay flat with a thick and rigid look and feel. Pages are printed as full spreads and not cut so imagery and design elements are not lost in the center of the book!

The flush mount album is perfect for remembering your Portland wedding photography. The acrylic photo cover makes it especially customizable. The prints are made by Robi's Camera in Lakewood, Washington and bound by Renaissance Albums in Port Chester, New York. The SoHo album is a contemporary flush mount style and is designed to showcase full page spreads. It is artistic, unique and unrivaled in presentation. This award-winning book uses seamless page craftsmanship to create its distinctive style.

The coffee table album is beautiful with a full cover photo in a matte finish! The pages are heavy; they come in a matte, glossy or pearl finish.

Portland Boudoir Photography
Boudoir photography is the ultimate wedding gift for your husband or maybe even just for yourself! All shoots are on location so we can get that authentic bedroom feel. I recommend bringing at least five outfits and any other accessories that you think you might use – shoes, tie, jewelry etc. The more we have to choose from, the better! The boudoir session is $245 and includes professional hair and makeup as well as complimentary refreshments.
Portland Engagement Photography
Engagement photography sessions are included in every wedding package because I believe that building a relationship with you is crucial and much easier to do before the day of your wedding. Being a Portland photographer, I know all the great hiding spots in Portland to find the best backdrops. I will scout out the best location that reflects your style and personality. Whether you would like a fun urban photoshoot or an intimate natural setting, I will help you create lasting images to reflect this evanescent time in your life. Most wedding packages include an 8" x 8" coffee table photo guest book.
Photographing people is my passion because you will never laugh, kiss, or even sneeze the same way twice. I do not only want to simply make a visual record of the day, but help you relive the emotions, beauty and truth in your life when you see the images.
My art begins with my camera. Some moments are so fleeting, I can't imagine holding those things in my mind long enough to get them down on a canvas. The goal of my fine art work is to first convey truth - and, second, to reveal beauty. Being in the right spot at the right time during your wedding means I'll get the best shots to turn into fine art that you will proudly hang on your wall. What better way to show off your beautiful portland oregon wedding photography with the fine art of a canvas printing with acrylic highlights? Imagine a custom watercolor painting of your first kiss - truly timeless!
