MEET Erica

Erica Reade-244.jpg

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by. I just celebrated my 12th year living in NYC, and I grew up in Montreal. When I'm not shooting weddings, I am a total beach bum. It might sound kind of weird coming from a native Canadian, but I adore the ocean, I swim and surf whenever possible. Born and raised in Montreal Canada, I have been in NYC for twelve years, and I get out to the Rockaway beaches as often as I can. Because of this, I do a ton of beach photography, including a series about couples at the beach, and this series has been published in Flavorwire,  Phoblographer, and Medium, among others.

I have an activist background, I went to the New School for an MA in International Affairs, and I have taught photography to kids for several years.  I married my love of photography with my passion for social justice into my wedding practice and here I am.
