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

This was one of the best years by far for awesome details at weddings. I know a couple brides used pinterest for some ideas… I really wish that site existed when I was planning my wedding!

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: Ashley and Tyler

Thursday, December 20th, 2012

The first time I talked to the brides mom on the phone before I knew it an hour had passed without even knowing it. What I did know was I was going to love this wedding without kmowing one person attending. From the minute I walked into the room where the bride and her girls were getting ready I had a smile on my face… it didn’t leave until I left. The people, decor, the dancing, touching speeches, smiles, laughs and cries. You will see in the super long blog post how awesome it was! Ashley and Tyler are the perfect match. They really enjoy being together and I could tell totally tell from the time I spent with them.

Introducing Mr.& Mrs.

Tuesday, March 20th, 2012

Ok so I have so many favorite parts of a wedding! Probably a good thing right? I think so… I am going to start highlighting them. “Introducing Mr. and Mrs….” These are just a few that stood out to me. When the bride and groom turn to their guests and start their first walk as a married it makes me so happy to to catch them. Everyone is so different as you can see! I don’t think you can plan your reaction.
