Erin Parker Photography in Sayulita, Mexico

Highlights
Award-winning photojournalist
Documentary approach
Available to work in Sayulita and Surrounding areas
Unobtrusive and subtle

Our lives are all collections of moments and I am a photographer

because of moments. Capturing and sharing them is my joy. 


My documentary approach is unobtrusive, honest and subtle. I blend in. I make my subjects feel comfortable. I watch, I wait and work hard to never miss a moment. I have an eye for the giddy tenderness that makes a wedding unique. The traditional scenes—getting ready, that kiss, the first dance—become exhilarating showcases for the bride and groom’s personalities. 

I'm an award-winning photojournalist, trained to blend in with a crowd and expertly employ natural lighting. This is wedding photography at its best, striking the perfect balance between irreverence and professionalism that will capture bright, priceless moments for you, your family, and your friends to cherish forever.

Couldn't have asked for a better wedding photographer!
We are so happy we chose Erin to photograph our wedding in Sayulita! She was great to work with right from the start. Obviously her photography and ability to capture the moment are amazing, but shes also the coolest chick ever. One of our main requirements were that we didn't want to feel like there was a camera in our face the whole time and we were much more into someone capturing people enjoying themselves instead of portraits/posing. She definitely delivered on all of that and everyone comments on how amazing our wedding photos are. You really feel like you have one of your best friends photographing the wedding. She has a great eye for taking unique photos and isn't afraid to get right in there! Thank you so much Erin!

Excellent photographer! Really knows her stuff!
When my husband and I were planning a destination wedding we really didn’t know what we were going to do about a photographer. We searched and searched. Of course friends and family were suggesting photographers that were local. That really didn’t help us because of our location for the venue.
It’s kinda like finding that perfect dress. When you know you know.
That was the feeling we both got when we talked with Erin Parker. She just got us, understood what we were looking for, and promised me that we wouldn’t have to spend hours getting the uncomfortable family shots.
Instead, I have so many precious moments with my sisters, Mom, Dad, best friends, and of courses my husband that she had captured in such a way that brings be back to that day. She even captured moments that I didn't from that day that was such a nice surprise to see.
The dedication she had was truly amazing.
If you are looking for a photographer to go above and beyond what your are exspecting then Erin Parker is the photographer for you.

There are 3 things I wouldn't change about our wedding....
1.) My wife
2.) The location
3.) Erin Parker!

My wife and I had always known that we wanted a destination wedding. We met at one, and knew it was right for us. The question was; where? We fell in love with Sayulita. I proposed at Hotel Villa Amor. And we decided on the flight home that that was the place.

Our wedding planner, Karen Ruezga, provided a list of photographers she had worked with in the past, so we set up conference calls with 3. I have been in sales for years and know that to get the right product, at the right price, you have to explore your options and be patient. Weigh your choices carefully, and make a measured, sound, decision. That all went out the window when we spoke with Erin.

First of all, she responded faster and more frequently than anyone else we reached out to. Secondly, after we got on a "short" conference call with Erin, we didn't stop gabbing for over an hour. It was like we were old friends who hadn't talked in forever. You know, the kind that you don't speak with for months or years and it doesn't matter, you just pick back up where you left off. That was key to us. We knew we were on the same wavelength.

Erin has a wonderful down-to-earth quality that is charming and endearing. Having viewed her work - I already earmarked her as my favorite - and speaking with her, we knew she was the one. We cancelled our other calls right after hanging up. She asked the right questions, gave us her honest opinion, and sincerely wanted to know us, our friends, and our family, so that she could do her best work.

Taking it to another level, she was ultra flexible for us. Rehearsal/rehearsal dinner the first night. Wedding the second. And our son's birthday party/"trash the dress" photos the third day. How awesome is that? She was there not just for our wedding, but to capture the highlights of the whole trip, the adventure. And in some ways, she was our guide. Not to mention the personal gestures. She and I loaded up into her "beach mobile" the first night so that she could take me into town for medicine for my son. Above and beyond, ladies and gentlemen. Above an beyond.

This beautiful and charming character of hers shows through in her work. It's her attention to details, the candid and personal touch, the way she captures the natural moments... You will not be disappointed with her. Or, the memories her work will invoke decades later - transporting you back to that place, and those precious seconds.

When we came home, I put together a 20 minute slideshow of the long wedding weekend for our Michigan reception. At the end, everyone stood up and cheered! They experienced what it was like to be in that beautiful place, sharing that time with us. Erin's work did that.

Above and Beyond Service and Fantastic Photos
Working with Erin was fantastic, I cannot recommend her highly enough! If you are looking for a wedding photographer there is really no other option.

My husband and I took a quick 6 day wedding planning trip to Sayulita about 4 months before the actual wedding. Choosing a photographer was one of the things we needed to accomplish on the trip and we met with a handful of photographers looking for a good fit. We met with Erin first and she set the bar high for all the others. Nobody else even came close.

To me, the thing that made Erin stand out from the others we interviewed was she was the only one who asked us “Tell me your love story.” She wanted to hear how we met and how we fell in love. We had a whole conversation about it, and in that time, not only were we interviewing her, she was interviewing us. And it became so obvious that she was an amazingly experienced photojournalist. Ahead of time, we didn’t know that was what we wanted in a photographer, but by the end of the meeting it was obvious we wanted this style of photography. During a 30 minute meeting over a couple of beers on the beach, she was taking notes and already thinking about how she was going to capture the magic of the big day, the magic of our love.

Communication was also spectacular with Erin. She was so prompt and thorough with our email conversations back and forth over the next few months. I would bounce ideas off her about different locations or ideas I had and she was she was honest and clear in her responses about why something would work well, or would be a challenge, but she was always up for the challenge. Additionally, she would point out suggestions or ideas that I hadn't thought of, which was super helpful as we planned the whole thing on our own - No wedding planner.

Her organization, attention to detail, and time management were all spot on and made working with her a breeze. But the real beauty of it all was the amazing portfolio of photos that she produced for us. She captured the whole day beautifully. She captured emotion and love and joy in the photographs she took. Looking through the photos you can see the feelings everyone is having, happiness and nervousness and excitement. As I look through the photos she gave us, I am instantly transported right back to the day of our wedding, my heart gets excited and a huge smile comes over my face. And for that I recommend Erin Parker Photography wholeheartedly to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.

Friend for Life
My wife and I decided on 5 things that were important to us in regards to selecting a wedding photographer.

1) Style of Photography
2) Will the Photographer be willing to share a full wedding gallery and not just a few great pics.
3) Must encompass all traits of a professional photographer
4) Willing to define very clearly their prices and what you are actually getting and what you will own after the wedding.
5) Compatibility


We interviewed several photographers and it wasn't till my wife came across Erin Parker's website did we find a photographer that would meet all of our above bullet points.

After meeting with Erin we knew instantly we had our professional photographer. What we didn't know was that she would not only meet all our criteria but exceed all our expectations. Erin immediately felt like she was part of the family and put all our guests, wedding party, and most importantly the bride at ease.

What we personally loved about Erin is she understood that the day was about the Bride. She politely and with amazing tact avoided getting sidetracked by that uncle or aunt we all have that wants to start their own private photo shoots. She politely declined their requests and remained focus on the bride and capturing her big day.

We loved her documentary style pictures and absolutely loved the fact that she put so much time and thought into her shots. Please note she did do a run thru with us and let us know what to expect and also explained to she wanted to capture particular shots due to lighting, crowds, etc . She came to our wedding rehearsal and spent time with our family and went over how she would shoot the pictures the day of the actual wedding which put the entire wedding party at ease.

She embodies every aspect and trait of a professional photographer and our wedding coordinator said she was an absolute pleasure to work with and responded in a timely manner to all our wedding coordinators emails.

Both my wife and I absolutely loved Erin on a personal level. We found her to be funny, clever, and very easy going.

In the end we feel like we made a friend for life.

Incase all the other 5 Star reviews didn't convince you!
Although my wedding was about as perfect as it gets, Erin was most certainly one of the most memorable parts of our wedding day. She brought a wonderful vibe that allowed both of us to breath and enjoy the experience in a way only Erin could. Then she sent us the photos! Which are as exceptional as wedding photos can be. If you like someone who is laid back but incredibly talented and professional you should go with Erin!- Nathan Mills

Erin is an INCREDIBLE storyteller!
Where do I even begin when describing our time with Erin Parker?? Working with her was like a dream. I truly could not have asked for a better teammate, and would recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer to capture memories to last a lifetime. Erin is a story teller, and told the events of our wedding with the photos she gifted us. She was incredibly personable from the first time we met her on our scouting trip, and was easily accessible through email and phone conversation thereafter. Erin is very professional, down to earth, and has a way of putting everyone at ease with her humor and wit; not to mention her creativity and artistic eye! This gal is something special, and truly has raw talent that captured the genuine, emotional moments that I will cherish for the rest of my life. Erin went above and beyond, and was incredibly adaptable. To paint this picture a little further, my groom and I did our first look pictures with Erin, but then missed our ceremony and reception due to extreme illness. However, we made an appearance at the reception once we got home from the hospital, and she captured the emotion of our arrival, and the reception that followed (without us), to the point that we can look at the pictures and live vicariously through them. She has a unique way of capturing the energy of the moment, that allowed us to be transported to that period of time. Erin, we love you and are forever grateful for having met you. Thank you for telling our story through photos that will be cherished for many years to come!!

I can't say enough good things about Erin!
I am so happy that we choose Erin to photograph one of the happiest moments of our lives! Right from the start after speaking with Erin I knew I chose the right photographer. Erin was extremely easy to talk to and communicate with throughout the entire planning stages. She is extremely organized and it is obvious she knows what she’s doing—she made sure to bring up points and ideas that I didn’t even think about! Erin came to our wedding rehearsal for a “meet & greet” so that we and our wedding party would feel more comfortable with her and know who she was. She is THE BEST to work with!!! She’s not stuffy or formal, she’ll tell you if you have a booger (which is important…thanks Erin haha!), she’s light-hearted, and makes the potentially awkwardness of being photographed disappear. My favorite thing, however, is the photos she took. She totally captured the type of photos I definitely wanted to get, but she was also great at capturing “in the moment” photos that created the perfect photo diary of our big day. Erin was a dream to work with and I highly recommend to her anyone looking for a fabulous photographer with a great experience!!!

Professional Photography by a Gifted Communicator
Erin knows how to get a good shot. She learned that from studying and working as a photojournalist. Just as important is the work that she does communicating, planning and listening. She's always present and can be firm when necessary to bring order to the day. She's encouraging and has the confidence that comes from being witness to many marriages. But what stands out for me is her ability to get everyone to relax and have fun in front of the camera. We knew that the photos were not something that we needed to worry about when we hired Erin. In the end, we will cherish the hundreds of images that she captured. Oh, and being married is awesome! Thanks, Erin!

Beautiful candids
I'm probably just going to repeat what everyone else has reviewed here (which is the reason why we wanted to work with Erin) but I can't reiterate enough how amazing Erin was. We, most importantly, didn't want someone who was obtrusive or super formal, getting in everyone's faces and making us do staged photographs. We wanted someone who could capture the joy and emotion of the day in a candid style and that is exactly what she did. When the lighting was perfect or she saw a perfect moment, she would pull us aside for just a moment to capture it...we never felt like we were away from our party for too long, which was really important for us. After our first look photos, we drove through town to take some pics, which was really fun and those are some of our favorite photos- I would recommend doing this to anyone.
I can't stop looking at our pictures. They take me right back to the best day of my life and let me relive that happiness again and again.
As a bonus, Erin is a really fun person to work with. She is hilarious and relaxed, which made it easy for us to be relaxed, as well. Our wedding was perfect and Erin captured every bit of it!
