Erika Tanith | Photographer

In a Nutshell

Erika shot her first wedding in 2004 and has a unique reportage wedding photography style that creates beautiful images that help keep your memories as fresh as the moment you said “I do”. Based in the North East of England, and happy to travel, she works with couples who want to express their personalities in their wedding; people who like to do things their own way and want their wedding be filled with fun and emotion, love and joy. Capturing all the genuine emotions of the day, there’ll be no posing, no pretending for the camera (unless you specifically ask for a handful of portrait and group shots). If that sounds appealing, get in touch.

Why do you want to work with us?
I love the vibe on GWG, there’s so much fun! I think weddings should really express the personalities of the wedding couple and GWG has a big focus on uniqueness and getting the most out of your wedding. Couples who do that have the best wedding days and that’s where I like to be pointing my camera.

What is your creative approach to weddings?
I try not to direct too much through a wedding. Most of what I do is documentary style photography, which is just capturing the day as it unfolds. I’ll pull together a few portraits and group shots where they’re requested, but my best work is taking photos of what’s there. I also think that those are the pictures that couples prefer the most: the ones that show people’s personalities and bring back all the great memories of the day.

What do you enjoy most about what you do?
I love being around people on the happiest day of their lives, when they’re surrounded by the people most important to them. Everyone is their best selves and I have the great privilege to capture and preserve those moments. It makes my job very special.

What is your favourite wedding reading?
First Poems by Rainer Maria Rilke

What is your favourite wedding song?
Fade Into You by Mazzy Star. It’s not played very often, and has a lovely 90s vibe to it. It’s romantic but not saccharine. A close contender would be Little Trip to Heaven by Tom Waits. I love blues, and blues dancing. This is one of those tracks that you don’t need lots of dance lessons before you can dance to it well!

What is your travel policy?
Travel costs are included for the first 100 miles from my location. After that there is an additional time and travel charge for mileage (please check directly for current rates). Where the wedding location is a significant distance from my location overnight accommodation may be required in order to ensure that your photographer is in the best state to cover your special day, but don’t worry I’m a cheap date! 🙂
