About The Photographer

Hi! My name is Erika Blackwell and I am the photographer of Center of Attention Photography. My business is located in Northern Michigan. My blog is a way for everyone to view some of my favorite images from recent sessions and get to know me! I am the VERY proud mommy to Braylan and Grayson. I LOVE what I do and I hope you can tell! These are not JUST pictures I take. I create memories... My heart and soul go into my work. I care about my clients and get to know them and learn what they like and dislike. I am a mommy & artist. I care about the ones I love like crazy, I love to have fun. I make crazy sounds to get those smiles. I dream big. I have tons of ideas. I cry during touching ceremonies and awesome reception speeches. I can usually be found smiling. I get inspired very easily. 231.549.2038

WEDDING: Kaela and Michael

Thursday, January 3rd, 2013

Kaela and Michael were married at the Catholic Church in Harbor Springs. It was so beautiful!
As you may notice the church was full of their friends and family. So many people came to celebrate this marriage. It was a super hot day in June… but you can’t even tell. I always look to see if the groom (who is fully dressed) looks hot. NOPE! He champed it!

On another note. These guests/wedding party can DANCE! I was laughing so hard at some of Michael’s football teammates moves. It was soooo fun! We were standing on chairs trying to get everyone as the busted a move.

WEDDING: Karen+Chris

Sunday, January 15th, 2012

This wedding was at Castle Farms and was small but warm and full of love. It’s hard to explain when you meet two people that are so in love with each other that it makes you feel happy to be around them. It makes my job so super fun! They hired us for 4 hours and we got so many real awesome moments. You will see as you look through the post how happy they were on their big day… and Karen’s smile. I could not help but post so many pictures of her REAL not posed smile. Also the moment that Chris saw her walking down the aisle. I teared up along with him. SOOOO sweet!! They snuck out while their guests were finishing their dinner and got some pictures around the property as the sky turned into magical colors. That isn’t photoshop… totally real.

The picture’s below were taken at the same exact time. One by me and one by my second shooter. It’s a perfect example of the two different styles mixed into one.
