Your Wedding, Engagement, Senior and Family Photographer

Let me introduce myself - my name is Erika Blackwell. Born and raised in Nothern Michigan. I really love to be creative and capture my clients being themselves. I have a real talent making people feel comfortable in most any setting. I like to have fun but have no problem with giving direction. Sometimes you just don't know where to put your hands. My biggest goal within my whole business is to make sure you have the best experience from the inquiry process until after you receive your gallery of images.




Erika is AMAZING! Had our engagement photos and Wedding Photos done by her! Full of energy and all around fun to be around! Wouldn't choose anyone else! You will not be disappointed if you hire her!

Fun, easy, comfortable and taken care of!

Upon seeing Erika's work on a family members wedding previously and meeting her in person, I knew I needed her for my wedding. I was BEYOND relieved to find out that she had our date available - once I had her booked, everything else fell into place! She is so extremely easy to work with, makes you feel so comfortable and beautiful, and just honestly an all around great person to have a conversation with! She is now a friend. HIGHLY recommend her services!!!

Erika has always been our go to photographer. Everything from weddings, engagements, senior pics, family photos and more! She puts 110% into her work and when you meet her and watch her do her thing behind the camera you can tell she actually loves what she does! It’s not just a job to her. And when you get your photos back you will be more than amazed with the results! If you don't go with COA photo, you simply don't have the best.

To me, there is no other option for our boys senior photos. Erika radiates sunshine and makes the kids feel completely comfortable and confident. Her sessions are filled with laughter and smiles while she captures their exact spirit with her amazing eye! I cannot wait to have her do our other boys senior sessions and I would highly recommend her to anyone and everyone looking for a photographer that is truly passionate about making her clients feel like family. Erika Blackwell is simply the best.
