ABOUT BRITTANY ERWIN PHOTOGRAPHY

Hi! I'm Brittany Erwin, an Indianapolis wedding photographer based out of Speedway Indiana out here on the near West side. I love to travel for awesome weddings, especially to Columbus and Chicago.

I am a huge nerd, geek, and possibly a bit of a dork too. You can find my husband(and second shooter) and I out at GenCon almost every year demoing as many board games as humanly possible or out at Tappers, the arcade bar, in Fountain square on date nights. We have a wonderful little boy, Malcolm, that shows me just how weird I really am by acting just like me - his poor father. We also have one fur baby, Ripley, named after Ripley from the Aliens franchise. She's a bag of crazy in the body of a brindle pit mix that just wants to love... and chase squirrels.

In the realm of photography, we love finding that stunning light and letting the magic happen. I would describe our style as posed photo-journalistic. I love finding those intimate moments throughout a wedding day while also capturing some stunning portraits in great light.

I am so very grateful that I get to do this job that I love so much with the man of my dreams.


FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

Q: What do you wear to photograph weddings?

A: Typically, I wear either a dress or black pants and a formal top. If you want me to dress up like a storm trooper, we can talk about it, I might just miss a few shots.

Q: How long have you been shooting weddings?

A: I shot my very first wedding all the way back in 2010 and went full-time in 2012 as a wedding photographer.

Q: Do you offer albums/prints in any packages?

Q: Does it cost extra to have the images edited?

A: Nope! That's included and all images you receive will be edited so they are ready to print.

Q: What is the first look?

A: It is when the couple sees each other for the first time before the ceremony. This can be great because it allows couples to move directly from the ceremony to the reception.
