Intimate Beach Wedding Ceremony-Erie, PA Wedding Photographer

I joined a couple for a private wedding on the Beach out on Erie’s Presque Isle State Park. Diana Ziemniak officiated the ceremony around Dusk, with an exchange of vows, and a wine pouring ceremony. The couple enjoyed the company of only one witness to share this private day. She definitely caught that bouquet! This romantic setting made for a beautiful, and intimate wedding on the shores of Lake Erie. The pictures came out so beautiful because of something called the Golden Hour, sometimes called the Magic hour. This happens when the sun is lower in the sky, right after sunrise or before the sun sets, basking the subjects in a soft golden red light.

Diana gave them a piece of beach glass as a memento of this memorable spot in time.

The Beautiful Brazilian Bride wore a simple airy white dress, a pretty flower headband, and carried a bouquet White Roses and Hydrangeas.

A wine ceremony was preformed, joining the two wines together to become one and sharing a drink of new beginnings together.


The Bride and Grooms friend from Brazil had no competition catching the Bouquet!

I was happy to share this very special wedding day on the beautiful Lake Erie beach, Presque Isle State Park, Erie, PA.

Banking Corporate Photography – Erie County, PA

We are now thouroughly enjoying working on commercial photography projects in the area. Our most exclusive so fair is the local bank corporation Marquette Savings Bank. You know, “The Hometown Bank, with the Hometown Touch”?! We have worked on several projects together taking photographs for website and marketing purposes. Many of our images are being used for their website, newspaper ads, and billboards.

The biggest project we've accomplished so far is the images for their new website! We were contracted to photograph various people, businesses, and local landmarks all over Erie county. Some of the places we traveled to include Meadville, Linesville, Edinboro, Albion, and Presque Isle. We photographed head shots of the CEO, Executive Management, and the Senior staff and Officers. The city of Erie even shut down North Park Row to shoot the executives in Perry Square

Take a moment to navigate through their site to see some of our work.

Most recently our photographs were included their 2013 Annual report. We have developed a unique editing style for this company that they love. All of our images match their logo and design scheme, which creates an artistic flow throughout all of their images.

This page even features a picture of our own kiddos playing in a local creek!

Boudoir & Pin Up Photographer makes the Newspaper!

Well kids, Pin Up Erie had an amazing article in the Erie Times News today!! Take a LOOK HERE!

Pin Up Erie Newspaper article

There is only so much that can be said in a few inches of copy in the newspaper, so I wanted to expand a little and let people know exactly what our businessES entail.

Like, a diamond, our business is multi-faceted. From engagement & wedding photography, commercial photography, and family portraits to Pin Up and Boudoir, we can capture that perfect moment. While we have a niche in the retro/vintage era, including Pin Up and Boudoir, the style of shoot is totally up to the client! If she wants photos done with her old sewing machine… let’s do it! Modern day Glam? Sure. We will turn any idea into a reality. Our goal with Boudoir & Pin Up is to make our client feel special and glamorous, no matter what style she chooses.

Our studio is anything but makeshift; we have a complete studio that caters to a variety of settings, with professional equipment and an array of props and outfits. We also have completely mobile lighting and equipment and can work almost anywhere!

While my husband Brian continues to partner with me for weddings, for studio or on location Pin Up/Boudoir shoots we have a fabulous ALL-FEMALE team to assist with hair, makeup, wardrobe choice, styling, and positioning. The goal is to have our clients be comfortable and enjoy the process while producing amazing photos and memories that will last a lifetime. Want to know more? Visit our website at for more information or message me for a consultation.

Also, now seems like the perfect time to share one of our promo videos! We have a bunch more coming ( including “How-To Prepare for a Photo Shoot”) tutorials coming very soon, but check out Karol’s amazing experience here:

If you havent visited yet, make sure you check it out. Pin Up Erie is the tri-state area’s only Classic Boudoir, Vintage Pin Up, and Hot Rod photography service. We’ve been working on search engine optimization lately and because of a lot of malarkey Pin Up Erie is not appearing in search results for “Boudoir Photographer + Erie, PA”, etc. It really is a pain in the butt to keep track of that stuff!
