I am the owner and lead photographer of JamesErickPhotographyUtah.com as well as UtahPhotoShootSpots.com. Photography is my full time job, and I love it!
My wife took this picture of me during a location scouting hike to Silver Lake, a difficult 1.5 hour hike up from Silverlake Flats, which is a 35 minute drive up from Tibble Fork Reservoir. I spend much of my time scouting out new locations so that I can know where all the best shoot locations will be.
I started my photography career in the nature photography business, traveling to all the national parks and many other places across the US. I was offered a job with National Geographic, but I was in school at the time and wanted to finish my degree, so I declined and moved into shooting models and actors. After shooting a friend’s wedding, I decided to start my own wedding photography business. This allowed me to combine my skills at photographing people and nature at the same time.
People often ask me what it takes to create a great picture. I tell them it takes years of experience, perfect timing, great lighting, a willingness to do crazy things like lay down in the snow on your back, climb a tree, hang off the edge of a cliff, or stand waist deep in a freezing river. It also takes knowing your camera like the back of your hand, having a great relationship with your clients and sometimes just some good common sense.
Utah is one of the most scenic states in the US and I am never at a loss for great locations to do bridals or engagements, no matter what time of year it is.
I love my job, and can’t imagine doing anything else. Thank you for considering me to photograph one of the most important days of your life. I know how important that is, and it means the world to me.
