I tell love stories about weddings and couples, and families of all shapes and sizes. I tell styled stories that fuse fashion and editorial storytelling for extraordinary trash-the-dress sessions, fantasy portraiture and boudoir photo shoots, collaboratively planned from concept to creation.
I am available for hire in Seattle and the Pacific Northwest, as well as Maui and destinations beyond.
I started my career as a photojournalist, first working at my hometown newspaper, and shooting entirely with film. My approach to lifestyle photography blends my photojournalism background with my unique brand of heartfelt storytelling. I collaborate closely with my clients to create images that are vivid and genuine, modern and a little out of the ordinary. Let’s make magic!
You should know: I believe every photo shoot should be fun! I’m a little obsessed with my dog, whose name is Birdy. It makes me really happy to cook for a house full of friends and family. I still have my very first film camera and every once in while I load it up with a roll of black and white. I’m an NPR junkie. I love to garden. I also take pictures of plastic horses. I could sit and read cookbooks for hours, but I’ve got to get back to Lightroom!
Reviews for Erin Lodi:
“Erin did a fabulous job taking our wedding photos! She did an amazing job capturing the day in a way that was beautiful and authentic. She was also a pleasure to work with and I loved the way she interacted with our guests. Many of our guests ended up with gorgeous photos of their families, and several of Erin’s pictures are now my friends’ new profile pictures on Facebook. I wholeheartedly recommend Erin as your wedding photographer.”
“Erin is fantastic. She’s passionate about her product and is so skilled at making people feel comfortable. She’s also great at looking outside the box for great photo opps. We’ll definitely use her for our family photos moving forward.”
“Erin did our engagement session prior to our wedding and gave us all the coaching we needed! It was so easy to relax with her and just be ourselves. This gave us a lot of confidence for how our wedding photos would turn out! As expected, our wedding photos are absolutely beautiful.”
