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: Keisha+Adam

Saturday, January 7th, 2012

I was looking through my blog at my wedding posts and realized I didn’t update 2010 weddings. My New Year’s resolution is to stay on top of the blog way better so I’m going to just keep on going so I catch up.

I remember this wedding very clearly. It was my first summer wedding while being pregnant in 2010 and I was still in sick/tired mode. I take my profession super serious and did not let it effect me on the day. The only thing that got me was watching them zipline. :) The motion and trying to focus… standing on a hill while looking up. This wedding party was the first to do the zipline at Boyne Mountain. Keisha is awesome at planning/details/decorating and when I walked into her reception and saw the decor I was like, YES! I could have made this blog post way longer but I have read that a viewer loses interest after 30 seconds of looking at photos of someone they don’t know. True or false?? Leave me a message and tell me if you did. (I hope you didn’t but be honost!)
