...because they are a way to remember those moments that are lost forever. The tear falling down your spouse-to-be's cheek as you read your vows. Your grandma breaking it down on the dancefloor. Your best man doing the splits - and splitting his pants during your wedding party portraits. Let's get real, weddings are super fun, and we make sure that everyone is having a good time while remaining professional and getting our job done.
...more than someone that just clicks the shutter, they're the one vendor that will be with you all day. If you hire someone that doesn't mesh with your personality—it won't matter how good the photos are. You will remember that wedding photographer that was too uptight or wasn’t professional. Having trust in your wedding photographer is key—and we work like hell to earn it. 📸
We're Erika and Shawn, a quirky soon-to-be-married photography team, currently based out of Regina, SK.
We often get asked why we chose wedding photography over everything else. The truth is, we're suckers for love, and we're obsessed with documenting moments that only happen once. You know, those moments that you can only remember when you close your eyes—the moments you wish never ended.
...fun, adventurous, fiercely in love, and maybe a little offbeat... we might just be the photography team for you!
The types of couples that like to work with us typically aren't afraid to get a little dirty, love road trips and adventures, and are planning a wedding that is uniquely theirs, in the beautiful outdoors. ✨
...whispering "I love you" in our kitties' ears, supporting the many local businesses around our home in the Cathedral area of Regina, cooking meals together, and going on adventures.
We're currently planning our own wedding for Summer 2020 and we're so excited to be sharing that experience with our couples, too. Read Shawn's perspective on the blog of our Denver, CO Engagement! 🥰

Love love love! Erika and Shawn are amazing people and photographers. I deeply appreciated not only the fantastic photos they took of our wedding but also how easy they both were to get along with it. It made it feel like just having extra friends at the wedding. I will definitely be working with Erika Gayle Photography again in the future. 😍

Erika and Shawn went above and beyond photographing our wedding this past summer. 42° weather, lots of folks in a small backyard, a worrier for a bride and nothing seemed to phase them. When our third hope for an air-conditioned shooting space was closed, they found the perfect place in the park and even drove us for some hilarious shots (and water!) over at the local grocers. They were great organizing all the families and capturing some downright beautiful pictures. The day flew by and I am so happy we have professional pictures to look back on ❤️ Huge props and big thank yous!

"Erika took supreme care of photos at our wedding this past summer, and I couldn't be happier with them - the ceremony shots and candids were gorgeous, and the posed ones were incredibly fun (coming from a person who doesn't love being on the non-picture-taking side of the lens) and we are so so so blown away with how they came out!
Erika is a serious gem - very fun to work with and have around, and produces absolutely incredible images"

"Erika is a literal WIZARD. We were just goofing around like idiots and like MAGIC she produced spectacular photos that made us look like something out of a wedding magazine instead the slightly tipsy overheated weirdos that we were . I have no idea how she even did it. Complete voodoo. A WIZARD I TELL YOU"
- Arloe and Drew
Absolutely the best I could have hoped for. Erika did our wedding photos for us and they are super gorgeous. She is very professional, laid-back, and has an eye for photography. Photo composition is perfect, the colour and contrast is beautiful. Erika was easy to talk to, stay in contact with, and is definitely my first stop for future professional photography.
Thanks again Erika, you were perfect for us.
- Alex and James
Erika is amazing! Years ago she helped me with pictures for a poster and did an amazing job, so of course when I wanted to do an engagement shoot she was my first choice. The whole shoot was a blast! We had an amazing time doing it and the end result was exactly what we wanted. I highly recommend her to anyone wanting great pictures!

Shawn and I are so excited for our adventure on the road. We’re prepping to live tiny, and believe me, slimming down your possessions is difficult... but also freeing! I think I will love the minimal life 😉 . It’s been a lot of blood, sweat, and tears…but we are so excited about where the road takes us (pun INTENDED). Keep up with us on instagram @lifewithbus!
Once our bus-house is completed, we're heading out on the road, and we'll be taking Erika Gayle Photography on the road with us, which we are SO excited about! Enter your email below to be the first to hear about updates to our bus, hear about new blog posts, upcoming specials, and more!
