I am the owner and lead photographer of James Erick Photography. 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, or stand waist deep in a freezing river, knowing your camera like the back of your hand, having a great relationship with your clients and sometimes just some good common sense. And 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 have been blessed with an amazing family, my wife Lacey, my son Logan, my daughter McKinly, and my son Gage. My family means everything to me. We have so much fun and I love them all so much!
I love my job, and can’t imagine doing anything else. Thank you for considering my company to photograph one of the most important days of your life. I know how important that is, and it means the world to me.
Hi, I'm Steve. I have a passion for photography. I discovered this passion while I spent several months rebuilding a car, which was a childhood dream of mine. I borrowed a camera to document this project by capturing some nice photos. The time I spent with that first camera got me hooked on photography. Soon I was shooting product photos for my mother's jewelry business, family portraits for my best friend and engagement and bridal's for my sister and her fiancé. These experiences led me to where I am today as a professional photographer.
Photography is not only my passion it is my career. I enjoy the process of getting to know people, understanding their wants and needs and making them real. Take a look through my portfolio and lets talk, I am excited to help you. Thank you for considering me to capture the most important details of your big day! I look forward to working with you.
Best wishes, Steve
