Meet erica payne

For our team, photography is more than snapping a pretty photo. It’s the ability to manipulate light and create an image that conveys a story without uttering a single word. We love capturing split-second moments and making them into priceless artwork.

This is why I started EP Photography.

After completing college and receiving my B.F.A. in Photography and Graphic Design, I began working in the commercial photography industry.  l LOVED editorial-style photographs because they were compelling. (And I like all the #EXTRA-ness about them!)  One of my favorite parts was planning all the details.  It was exciting taking an object, a person, or a location and  adding all the details together to tell a complete story in just one image.

Being an artist I have other skills up my sleeve too! Sewing, jewelry-making, textiles (I majored in art, after all) come in handy when designing custom shoots. 

When I'm not photographing, you can find me watching movies, showing off my Pitmaster skills, and hanging out with my husband and three kids. But most of all, I love being #EXTRA. (If you saw my kids' birthday parties, you'd agree!)
