I’m Erika Edwards. a lifestyle photographer specializing in high school seniors and couples. I work hard and believe in living a balanced, healthy hustle; one in which I can build a life and business only investing my time in things that give me warm fuzzies, while still devoting time to self-care and playing hard too. Life is short, so I try to enjoy every moment like it’s my last.
I am a Dallas, TX girl that loves the big city lights, big celebrations and big fun. I’m a mama to my high-energy furbaby Liberty and love my role as proud aunt. I live by the notion of doing things with passion or not at all. I have always been a creative at heart. From hosting events, to creating crafts and planning projects, to my love for photography.... you can never have too many passions right!
Of course you’re here because you need a bomb photographer, but equally, you want someone that connects to your story, an experience to remember, and images that genuinely reflect you. Well, I’m your girl and in comes the party planner to Celebrate You!
I’ll cook up the good vibes, the perfect mood and ambiance, and even treat you to surprises along the way. As your host, I’ll encourage you to own that self-confidence as THE outfit of the day. What better way to cure your mix of emotions-excitement, anticipation and maybe even anxiousness for what’s next in life.
I’m all about visibly adding value to your story, empowering you to chase your dreams, and helping you exude style and confidence as you embark on this next stage in life. When you entrust Zest & Zeal Photography to capture you, rest assured it will be an unforgettable and stress-free experience with exceptional service, from start to finish.
Seniors and all things love are naturally my jam! I believe natural and candid moments are most beautiful, but images of glamour and the sentimental details also make my heart swoon. Whatever the moment, I will capture colorful, relaxed images along with minimal formal posing to bring about your natural expressions.
Your images should be engaging, visually tell your story, be worthy of displaying as art in your home and even inspire others to celebrate and treasure every moment. I want each client to look at their images and be able to remember the exact emotions of that very moment.
in doing anything to get the shot.
in raw emotion, laughter, and happily ever after
no moment is ever wasted so CELEBRATion is mandatory!
It costs nothing to be kind & build each other up.
Everyone has a unique story to tell. #zestimony
