Hi, I'm Erin!

Travel Enthusiast – Home Decor and Design Junkie - Pink Pedicures

Hi! I’m Erin, from Erin Wilson Photography. Photography is my dream job, I'm 100% in love with what I do for all my couples and I take pride in creating artful classic imagery documenting my couple's love story and precious family memories. I have studied fine art and painting since I was 12 years old and fell in love with photography after college. I'm from Texas, where I grew up my entire life, I met my husband in college (we're college sweethearts). My husband and I have been married for 10+ years and when we first were married we moved around from Missouri, to Tulsa Oklahoma, then right outside Boston and then he got a call to take a job in his tiny home town in the heart of Arkansas. We bought a 70's fixer upper and we've been living here for almost four years working on making over our sweet home.  I love living close to our families and being within driving distance to all my favorite southern states and close to an airport to jet across the world to photograph a beautiful wedding. I LOVE traveling...I fell in love with exploring and trying new things. My husband and I have two sweet children Penelope Lane (a red headed 10-year-old little girl who loves ballet and music) and Emerson Gray (a 3-year-old blonde hair gray eyed cutie who loves legos and Mickey Mouse). My sweet little family loves a good brunch date, a Taylor Swift dance party and making up themed nights around movies.

a little more about me...

I have known for a very long time that I wanted to be a wedding photographer. I knew I loved photography and creating art but always from the beginning I knew that what I wanted to do was document love. Being married for over ten years to my husband I know what it's like to look back at my own wedding photographs and think of the day our lives started together. Even after we were married my sisters and my brother got married and I had the chance to see the process on the other side. I know what it's like to look back on that incredible day and reminisce and it's so important to me to document each of my couples in a natural, joyful and artful way. I realize these are the images you have for the rest of your lives and I take pride in working hard for my couples to make those as beautiful as possible. I love outdoor weddings, historic homes, family farms, beautiful venues full of love, relationships, fun, dancing, gorgeous details and handwritten vows. I will probably tear up at your first dances, your vows and the beautiful words your friends and family say about you during your toasts. I don't just show up on a wedding day to take images...I'm there to help in any way I can. I have sewn in bustle on a wedding gown, put in a hundred wedding veils, I always end up being the one putting on the groomsmen boutonnieres and I do it all with pride. I know that it's more than just photos that make a wedding day beautiful and stress free. I have always joked with my brides that I'd finally put it on my website that I was prettayyyy good at putting in a veil and buttoning up a dress and so I'm finally publicly admitting it. I just want all my brides to be treated the way I would have wanted my best friends or my sisters to be treated and I do just that!

 

My photography style is natural, artful and classic. I shoot film and digital images to keep your images dreamy beautiful and classic. I have fallen in love with film images and the colors, tones and depth and shoot it as much as I can when the light is beautiful. I love to capture those candid sweet moments as well as create a beautiful artful scenic image for each of my couples. Most of my couples love how dreamy my work is and I love that! 

 


FUN FACTS:

Pride and Prejudice (the 2005 version) is my FAVORITE movie and I watch it at least once a month.

I think pedicures and coffee are the best things in the world.

I’m the oldest of 5 siblings in my family which has been so fun to watch all my siblings grow up.

I LOVE to cook for people, throw parties and entertain.

I'm a little bit obsessed with HGTV and pinning home decor ideas on pinterest. My husband and I bought an old 70's fixer upper three years ago and have been making it over from top to bottom. 

I took my first trip to Europe this year and fell in love. My ultimate dream is to photograph a wedding in Paris or Italy. 

I lived most of my life in Houston Texas so I take pride in being a city girl but I have fallen in love with quite small town life with my husband in the heart of Arkansas. 

I could spend half a day in Target. It's my vice. 

I love fashion magazines and pretty cookbooks. 

Anthropologie smells so good and gives me SO much inspiration. 

I take pride in loving elegant classic design with a little artful twist. 

I've studied art and painting since I was 12 years old and it's one of my favorite pastimes.

I love being creative all the way around from a good party, home decor, painting and of course...photography.
