Hey Guys!

I have some exciting news for everyone!!!!!!

If you haven’t heard Erika Liz Photography no longer exists (we’ll except to a few previous booked clients)!  Ok ok ok so I know you’ll be asking all these questions in your mind so I’ll try to answer them all for you, if in the event you are still left wondering about something be sure to shoot me an email and I’ll answer whatever you’ve got.

Q) What is going on?

A) Erika will still be trudging along here in Northwest Arkansas and still providing you with wedding photography as well as portrait photography so be sure to schedule those fall portraits today!  Be they seniors, families, or just for fun!

Liz on the other hand has moved on to bigger and better things.  She has moved to Dallas, TX to pursue the work of the ministry.  I know that’s a big goal for them and she will still be shooting down there as well, so if you’re a Dallas, TX blog reader be sure to give her a call. So congrats to her and good luck!

Q) You still have packages that include a second shooter, who will that be?

A) We have a list of highly qualified second shooters that we find very talented and capable of providing you with amazing wedding photography!  So no worries.

Q) What is the new website for Northwest Arkansas Wedding Photography?

A) It will be Erika Dotson Photography!!!!  That’s exciting!  But be sure to have a bit of patience with me as I am in the process of transferring all the technical websity stuff.  I will have a new blog up very soon so be sure to subscribe to that one when it’s launched!

Ok that’s all for now I’m getting sleepy.




RJ and Chelsea 4.18.09

We have gotten to know Chelsea’s family very well, considering we’ve shot her siblings portraits this year (she has two younger twin siblings that are seniors in high school).  We were warmly welcomed into their house to start photographing their special day.   We also fell in love with RJ and Chelsea during the short time we met for engagement pictures – which rocked with their indivdual styles.  RJ and Chelsea are truly in love with each other and anyone that was around them that day can testify of that.  They were married at the beautiful Magnolia Gardens in Springdale. 


I love this shot from the ceremony during their communion.


RJ is full of surprizes as he dipped Chelsea for a first kiss……….well really like a third kiss……he was kissing her all through the ceremony!


What a beautiful couple!


These girls all met while participating in the mission program and flew in from all over for RJ and Chelsea.





I look like a Black Sheep in this photo, but Chelsea looked far from it after her hair was done by the Black Sheep Salon off Dickson St.


Here they are excited to head off to their honeymoon….. 



We want to thank these two families for allowing us the opportunity to share and capture this special day with you.  We really had a wonderful time and enjoyed spending the day with your families. 

Best Wishes,

Erika Liz Photography

Shane and Tiffany 9.12.08

Sorry this post is long overdue. My cousin Shane and Tiffany were recently married at the LDS church in Mena, AR. Just moments before the ceremony was to begin they were tested by a heavy downpour of rain. Tiffany was determined to get married though, she even said she was willing to get married in the rain. That’s just what they did. They were so lovable and had such sweet spirits about them that day. Tiffany, we are excited to have you join our wild family. Best of wishes to you both and congrats!

Her beautiful dress

You don’t see this too often on the wedding day- Thanks Shane for an awesome photo op!

The girls!

The boys!

The storm that hit minutes before the ceremony

The kiss

Uncle Rick got her pretty good!
