We are Erin and Liz, the creators of Papered Heart Photography! Welcome!
We are a couple of modern free thinkers. We are foodies, lovers of art, lovers of music, with eclectic style. And we are world travelers, international photographers bringing change and revolutionizing how photographing love should be.
We do all of this with passion, for like-minded people who are madly in love.
Our passion for photography is fueled by your passion for each other and your willingness to share it with the world and your trust in us to be a part of witnessing and capturing your love and your magical moments.
At Papered Heart, we photograph relaxed, fun, and non-traditional weddings and love couples that embrace making a wedding about who they are as a couple. Remember to ask yourself "why" you're doing something, and if it doesn't feel right, or it's a tradition you're not excited about, question it and let it go if it's not right for you.
You'll have the best experience of your life if you can figure out how to make the wedding and celebration personal, and figure it out together. After all, it's about you BOTH, right?
It's also about love and commitment and celebrating that joy with loved ones and having incredible images to tell the story for years to come. We want generation after next to be able to feel your love from the images, as if it's happening right before them and they are experiencing your moments with you.
We strive to bring a fresh, positive vibe with us to every wedding, making everyone feel at ease, which allows for incredibly natural and beautiful moments to happen!
We accept a limited number of weddings each year, so that we can continue to place our focus on quality, and always bring the best experience to your wedding day.
Destination Weddings are our specialty and we love to travel for weddings and engagement sessions everywhere. Whether it's a large or small wedding or a sweet elopement, we will travel for it. We have photographed weddings all across the US and Europe. We fly, we travel well, and we have a blast doing it. So don't be shy, ask us to come to you or travel with you. It will be the best experience imaginable, trust us.

Our favorite parts of this wedding? Has to be the incredible First Look shared by Whitney and Matt, when they both did the “Dougie” during their cake cutting, and the GLOW TAMBOURINES, yes you heard right. GLOW TAMBOURINES.. Oh and all the sparkly fashion and the most outrageous wedding party entrances, EVER. Enjoy!!
We were so happy to collaborate with some of our favorite creatives to bring together this fabulous shoot. While in the process of re-branding, we wanted to find elements that shouts this is US!, with modern geometrics while keeping with our boho and eclectic aesthetic. These rad geometric hearts, created by artist Andrea Everman, were the perfect find for us! We combined them with hearts created by the super talented and dear friend, Renee Rodgers, from Renee Nicole Design, for a fun, eclectic mix. This heart is now sitting pretty up top as our new logo. Fresh and fun, and a little funky, that’s us.
Happy New Year friends! What better way to start off 2014 on the blog, than with super incredible love.
Ahhh these two, their love is what our job is all about. There is no need for words when images can tell such a story.
All we can say is that we can’t wait for their family property wedding in a few months, a celebration in the middle of nowhere, with live indie band music, guitars and stars, and camping in RV’s and airstreams.
If Epic was enough to describe what’s to come, we would use it.
Cheers to 2014!!!
Erin and Liz
P.S. These gardens have been my refuge since I was a child, I never grow tired of being still here, it is my sanctuary. I think Mr. Bok himself would be touched to know people experience such love and peace here as he hoped and built. ~ Erin
These two represent such an emotional love. The kind that pulls at you every second until you see each other again. They were anticipating their First Look so much and couldn’t wait to lay eyes on each other!
Their passion is not only for each other but for Christ and the role that their faith plays in their lives, especially as they join together. It strengthens them and brings out the goodness in each other. All the more reason to have a worship service during their ceremony! Such a moving moment for everyone there, even us as their photographers. It also proves a very good point that we say time and time again: God loves you and shines on your love whether you get married in a church setting, or even better, under his open skies.
We felt like family with them this day and worshiped with them and celebrated them.
Congrats Sarah and Marshall! We hold you so dear to our hearts.
If you didn’t know that the Salvador Dali Museum is available as a modern, new and hip venue for weddings, you must check it out!
I couldn’t get enough of photographing the geodesic goodness of its large glass entryway and skylight. The helical staircase was designed around Dali’s obsession with spirals and double helical shapes…and admittedly, I am now equally obsessed.
The style and beauty of the museum and the garden lend itself to be one of my favorite wedding locations in our area. I was absolutely thrilled to be contacted by Lindsay and Luke to photograph their wedding at the Dali. The museum’s “Wishing Tree” was the perfect location for their First Look and their Golden Retriever, Brewer, stole my heart!
