My name is Erica Mendenhall, a Palm Springs Wedding and Portrait Photographer, excited to photograph your awesome day!
Wedding and Lifestyle photography has been a passion from a very early age. My love of light, people, landscapes, and architecture is never ending. I wake up thinking about photography, and go to bed brainstorming locations. I am just as excited with every new wedding or session as if it were my first. I truly believe that the art of Photography is not only my passion and dream as a young child, but it’s also my gift from above. A love and talent that the Lord has blessed me with, and one that I am so excited to share with you.
“Bringing joy through photography is my passion, capturing once in a lifetime moments is my purpose and cultivating fabulous relationships with my clients is my blessing”.
We laugh, we joke, we cry… new phases of their lives form…new tiny additions and even some tears over family members that have passed on. The emotions that we share together are real. I am happy when they are at their highest and pray for them when they are at their lowest. Even though we may not see one another very often or sometimes for years; my clients and I are forever connected through those moments captured during our time together. My work is more than just being their photographer – I am and always will be a friend.
On a personal note, I’m also a wife to my husband Brock, (aka “gorgeous face”) of 15 years, mommy to our two beautiful daughters, and puppy Lucy!
My relationship with Christ is my everything. His love, forgiveness and grace push me to rise above all of the obstacles that life throws my way. His mercy is new every morning (praise God), and so I strive to be like the Proverbs 31 woman. To be my best in life as a wife, mother, daughter, sister, business owner, photographer and friend. To encourage, to laugh, to eat mint and chip ice-cream, to have snuggle time, to be at every softball game, to teach my girls that Jesus loves them more than anything, and to shine with His light daily.
Creating amazing sessions together, planning out that wedding timeline, driving miles away to “the perfect” location is what you can expect from me :). If you’re looking for a photographer who truly desires to be a part of your biggest life changing moments, who genuinely wants your day to Rock, and for you to shine in your images, than let’s connect! I’m ready to make fabulous images with you!
