    One of the most important vendors for my Husband and I was our photographer. We wanted to make sure someone would capture all the moments of our day so we could relive it for years to come. Without a doubt, Erica and Jordan did that and so much more. Words cannot describe how incredibly happy I am with choosing Closer North Photographer. From the first time we met Erica at our engagement photos until the wedding she made both of us feel so comfortable and at ease. On our wedding day Erica was seriously one of my favorite people. I truly felt like I could relax because she was so organized and kept us on schedule. All our wedding photos came out so amazingly beautiful and it is because our wonderful photographers can capture the most unique and natural photos. I would highly recommend Closer North Photography to any couple!!

    I don’t even know where to start. We found Erica and Closer North when browsing for engagement photographers when my now wife and I visited Acadia National Park. We met her and it felt like we had known her for years. She was SO comfortable to be around. My wife and I have never had professional photos taken so we didn’t know what to expect, Erica made it fun and very easy going. She even brought a friend along to hold our dogs when they weren’t in the photos! After looking at wedding photographers in Pittsburgh and finding nothing that really struck us in the way Erica’s photos did, we decided to have Erica shoot our wedding in Pittsburgh, PA. She was once again so easy going and organized. She provided a timeline for the day and truly put my wife and I both at ease. She brought her husband as our second shooter and we were also so comfortable around him. You could feel the love between the two of them and that’s important as well. Erica and Jordan helped with just about anything that needed done, from pinning the men’s boutonnieres to making sure our ceremony went as planned. They were fun and a joy to be around. My wife and I are probably slightly awkward to photograph but Erica and Jordan made it fun! Our wedding was only 8 days ago and we haven’t received our photos yet aside from some AMAZING sneak peaks however judging from our beautiful engagement pictures and sneak peak photos that our wedding pictures will be even better. Wedding photos are the only thing we keep forever and we are so grateful to have found Erica and Closer North. She felt like an instant friend and someone we truly trusted throughout the entire wedding planning process. We can’t wait for the day we have kids and we take them to Maine and have Erica continue to capture moments in our lives. Thank you Closer North!

    Erica was a our engagement and wedding photographer and everything about our experience was awesome! She is extremely easy to work with and makes you feel comfortable. My husband and I had never taken professional photos together and she walked us through every step. She has great recommendations, but also lets you just be in the moment. Then when we received the final photos, I was blown away! Her angles, perspectives and picture quality are amazing. We got our photos back very quickly too which was great! Erica is very professional, but she also feels like a friend! Thank you for giving us the best wedding gift: amazing photos that capture every special moment (even some we didn't see!)

    Honestly, if you are comparing Closer North to any other photographer for your wedding day or any other event, don't. Just book Closer North. You will not be disappointed. Every one of their photographers are amazing to have, but we felt exceptionally lucky to have Erica for our wedding day. As unsurprisingly chaotic as the day may have been, Erica made it feel like everything was all okay. She was honest, creative and made my husband and I feel so relaxed during pictures. We have never had our pictures taken professionally, but after our experience with Erica and the high quality pictures we received from our wedding day, I absolutely plan to use Closer North in the future.

    Wow, Erica and her team at Closer North were amazing. We booked Closer North because they did my brother in law's wedding back in 2015, and everything looked so beautiful back then so they were an obvious choice. Erica met us for our engagement shoot several months before the wedding and we immediately clicked with her. She moved us through the photo shoot effortlessly and before we knew it the session was over! Then she sent us sooo many wonderful photos. She really captured our personalities and had fun with us. Fast forward to the wedding day and wow, just wow. Erica and Ember were amazing and took our requests with enthusiasm. They captured so many amazing moments and were not invasive or distracting at all, but were also warm and friendly as if members of our wedding party :-), honestly I miss them already! Everything from the vibrant colors of my bouquet to the laughter and merriment on everyone's faces at the reception was captured in intimate detail. All of our friends and family who have seen the photos are in total awe. We will never forget Closer North!

    Erica and Jordan were wonderful to work with from day one. From the day we hired Erica, she was attentive, helpful, professional, and easy to work with. On the wedding day, she dealt with family dynamics with grace. Erica took our interests/requests in stride while also making professional recommendations (which I am very happy we listened to). Every shot she recommended turned out beautifully. We truly love our wedding photos- instead of feeling stiff and posed like many I see, Closer North truly captured the joy, love, laughter, and happiness of our day. My husband and I had so much fun getting to know Erica and Jordan and truly enjoyed spending time with them. Taking pictures never felt like a chore but rather felt very natural and relaxed. We are VERY thankful we hired Closer North and honestly don’t have a single complaint. It was wonderful to get a flash drive of our images rather than having to pay for individual prints. Everything was seamless from beginning to end. Hire Closer North and you will not be disappointed!!

    Closer North was absolutely amazing to work with! They exceeded all our expectations. They showed up early, we requested 2 photographers Erica and Hillary. They were kind, professional, and just really awesome to be around!! We were continuously laughing and having the time of our lives, they made everything so comfortable and easy! As a bride, stressing that everything turns out perfect is always the top of my mind. But not while working with Erica and Hillary, they put so much work into the photos I was instantly excited to see the end result... And I was right to be, my mind is blown away by the photos I have seen so far and I cannot wait to see the rest of them. They did a phenomenal job and are worth EVERY PENNY SPENT!! I highly recommend using Closer North for any event!!

    Having Closer North do my wedding photography was one of the best decisions I made while wedding planning! Erica and Danielle were fantastic! Neither myself or my husband have had professional photos done in the past, so we were both a little nervous, but Erica and Danielle made it fun and effortless! Their creativity and artistry is amazing!

    Erica went way beyond our expectations. We have worked with her before and were more than pleased then, but this time we were floored. She not only captured the memories of my daughters special day in pictures, but she captured the spirit of the event and the emotions of those involved in her thoughtful and wonderfully artistic images. In my opinion, and from my experience, Erica is by far the premiere wedding photographer not only in our area, but our state, and quite possible New England. She is amazing.

    We could not be more thrilled with the results. Not only were they both extremely warm and friendly on the day which made us feel comfortable and at ease, but they were easy to work with, very professional and great at giving us subtle direction in order to capture some truly spectacular photos. We are so happy to have such wonderful memories of the best day of our lives and we could not recommend Closer North more highly. Erica was extremely responsive and communicative throughout the planning process and had highlights for us to look at just a week after the wedding. Thank you Ember, Erica and Closer North!

    Let me start by saying, before my actual wedding day I had not met Erica. I had followed Closer North on Facebook for a long time and always swooned at the moments she captured and her style of photography captivated me. Photos are the only visual memories you will have from your day, so to me, this would be the most important decision of the entire planning process. From day 1 of booking her services she was always available by phone or email to answer questions or provide insight and help in any way when needed. She was a pure delight to work with and I would highly reccomend her for your wedding. She was professional, gracious and accomodating. She captured the moments I wanted specifically and then some. You have an incredibly artistic eye and it is clear to me that you are very passionate about what you do. You even made my husband ( who hates his photograph taken) feel comfortable in front of the lens, which is a feat in of itself. Thank you again, Erica! We LOVE our photos and are so grateful we chose to work with you on our day.

    I am so thankful that we chose Closer North Photography. Erica and Jordan did such a beautiful job capturing such special moments. I can't tell you how happy I was looking through all the photos and reliving these moments. They did such a perfect job capturing my friends, family and us in such special moments really accentuating such beauty and character. These physical photos piece together such beautiful memories of a perfect night. Thank you!!

    Closer North is true talent and professionalism. As a hectic bride and in the midst of my wedding day, Erica was an amazing help and captured the precious moments of the day that passed in a blur. My wedding day was filled with a lot of emotion and she made sure to capture every tear, every smile and every special moment (while keeping the wedding timeline on track). I cried once seeing my photos after my wedding. It was like reliving my wedding day all over again but at the most beautiful angle. Wedding photography is an investment and Closer North is worth every single penny. In the moments of my reception that needed a little assistance, Closer North was there to help with ideas to make the moments more magical. For example, placing my wedding cake under the warm glow of our cafe lights to make even more incredible pictures. I highly recommend Closer North. They are guaranteed to capture each wedding uniquely in its most perfect way.

    I would highly recommend closer north to photograph your wedding. Erica is great to work with and her photos are unbelievably beautiful. A groomsmen of ours used to do wedding photography, and has become admittedly jaded to the field, and he can't stop talking about how beautiful are photos are! Erica and Jordan seemed to always be in the right spot at the right time to capture those perfect moments. My husband and I were super awkward on how to pose and Erica did a great job directing us and making us feel completely comfortable throughout the process. Erica posted highlights of the wedding very quickly and we got our flash drive with all our photos much sooner that I would have expected. She even captured a video of our friends perform in a song for us which was a huge surprise!

    A few weeks ago, I had the joy of being a part of the wedding in beautiful Bar Harbor of my daughter and now son in law in which Erica from Closer North photographed. She combined both a relaxing and professional presence. The pictures were stunning! She was able to "lay low" and be in the background unobtrusively during the ceremony and reception when needed, yet capture so many countless moments in the perfect way! Thank you for the keepsake we will treasure forever.
