If you're planning a Washington DC wedding, we've got the inclusive, offbeat-minded wedding photographer for you. We fell hard for Erika Nizborski when we saw that she was all about equality, embracing what makes you unique, and had her own offbeat wedding (so she totally gets it!). Her documentary style will tell the whole story of your day with tear-jerking candids and little funny, meaningful moments you'd never have found otherwise. It's my favorite kind of photography style.
In addition to photographing weddings, you can also find Erika running around Capitol Hill documenting various social justice issues, covering events, and working on editorial projects. Not in the DC area? Erika has her passport ready and is available to travel worldwide! Are you ready to hear more about how Erika will expertly capture your wedding like a photojournalistic superhero? Let's do this…
More about Erika & her style
Erika has been capturing images professionally since 2010 with the foundation of a BFA in photojournalism from the Corcoran College of Art+ Design. She loves to tell stories through her imagery and it totally shows in her portfolio. We already knew she was seriously hard-working, accessible to her clients, and ready to make the process of getting amazing wedding photos super easy.
Here's a little more from Erika herself…
I cater to offbeat couples because I believe that no two weddings are the same. We are free to create our own traditions because if you're not having fun then who is? I should know: my husband and I had our own offbeat wedding. We got married in the same room as a manatee!
Some of the most memorable weddings that I have had the pleasure to document have been the ones that included the couple's personalities and interests. From a motorcycle museum to a theme park to everything in between. I’m a very adaptable photographer and love the opportunity to photograph in a new and exciting space.
Have any reader specials going on?
Hell yes we do! This one is ultra useful, too…
Mention that you found Erika on Offbeat Bride when you get in touch and receive a complimentary engagement session upon booking your wedding photography.
We aaaaalways recommend an engagement session to get more comfortable in front of the camera and already have a great rapport with your photographer before the wedding day!
I'm almost convinced…
Let's hear from a few of Erika's past clients to see if she's got the chops…
Erika was amazing! She was such a pleasure to work with and everything from our engagement photos to the wedding day photos came out better than we ever could have imagined! She even got us a first look at some highlights two hours after the reception ended! We could not possibly recommend working with Erika enough! – Karuna, married on 06/16/2018
For one of life's most important events, there's no one I would trust more than Erika to not miss — and to capture in a brilliant way–the moments that form the mosaic of why the day matters so much. Erika herself not only had an eye — and timing — for seeing the best of our day, but also for finding those opportunities to show the fuller story of our wedding weekend. She put us both at ease — as much as by her personality as by her talent. And, beyond executing a flawless performance as our lead photographer, she assembled and led literally a world- class team that had previously captured presidents and key leaders in our nation, as well as weddings for well-known couples across the country. In short, she was exceptional — and an integral of making our wedding weekend the best time of our life. Fortunately, thanks to Erika, we look back and see it all. – Chrys, married on 07/01/2017
I could not recommend Erika enough! Our wedding day was magical, but it was also stressful (naturally) and Erika had the most calming, friendly, responsive manner about her and she calmed me down more than most of my friends did! Most importantly, though, Erika captured our day exactly as we had envisioned. All of our friends and family are obsessed with the photos we have shared so far, and we are having a hard time narrowing down our own favorites since all of them are wonderful. She also did an incredible job with our engagement photos and was such a pleasure to work with. I can't wait to hire her again for family portraits, actually. 🙂 – Sarah, married on 10/14/2017
Yep, we're in. East coast wedding couples (and elsewhere!) take note that Erika is in demand and her schedule books up fast. Don't hesitate to say hello, see if she's got your date free, and check off “find a stellar photog” off of your to-do list.
Now THAT'S the kind of shot you want to remember.
