I'm a Portland-based photographer that specializes in weddings & families with a photojournalistic touch. I love photographing couples and families in epic, outdoorsy, and scenic locations. My ideal clients are outdoorsy & adventurous couples who are madly in love. When it's your wedding day, I'm more than your photographer: I want to be your friend & confidante, all while taking gorgeous photos to capture the story of your big day.
If that sounds like you, you've come to the right place. Grab a drink and poke around. Don't forget to scout my latest adventures (I mean, work) on Facebook (/ErinFortinPhoto) and Instagram (@ErinFortinPhoto).
I don't have words to accurately express how AMAZING Erin was at our holiday party. We had a photographer call in sick the day of the event, which would be any planners nightmare! Thankfully I connected with Erin and instantly she provided peace of mind and professionalism. She made what could have been a disaster a wild success. I received phone calls the morning after our event with rave reviews. She photographed kids and adults with Santa at our holiday party, and took charge. This could not have been more needed since kids can be difficult and we didn't want it to be a negative memory for them! The Santa called me and let me know she knocked it out of the park. Not to mention the photos! High quality, beautiful finished product. THANK YOU a million times over, Erin!
Response from Erin Fortin Photography:
Lyndsay, thank you so much for your kind and generous words! Your company’s event was an absolute joy to photograph - from the wonderful families and coworkers, to the perfect Santa - it made my job a breeze. I’m glad the stars aligned so that we could work together. I look forward to working with your company again soon!
Erin was an absolute pleasure to work with. She kept us organized, had great pose advice, and she has an incredible eye. Our wedding photos turned out amazing and I'm so excited to share them with my friends and family! She enhanced my day with her smile and her warm personality. I'm so happy we hired her!!
Response from Erin Fortin Photography:
Oh Sam, thank you for the kind and generous praise! You and Justin were so much fun, a pleasure to work with, and your wedding was a dream. Thank you for everything!
Erin was awesome! She was prompt, friendly, out going and was enjoyed by all! She interacted with all of our employees taking candid shots as well as offering to take family photos as well. I would highly recommend her to anyone and would hire her again in an instant!
It all started when we asked Erin to take maternity photos of me and of course my husband too. We scheduled it for a weekend day outside with the beautiful fall leaves, but as it turned out, the weather didnt cooperate. Erin improvised and made our pictures look amazing inside our home. Long story short, we had her do our daughter's newborn shoot and 1 year photos because we loved her and her work so much. We loved how easy going she is, how she so naturally finds poses and places, and how meaningful the pictures come out.
A photography session with Erin is not only a question of having great pictures. It's a real moment for sharing emotions. Erin will make you feel totally at ease and more important, she will make you feel beautiful because in her eyes and in her camera, everybody is special. She is naturally talented but also a hard worker. We had the chance to have two photo sessions with her and I can't wait for the next one.
"Erin was our friend before she started photographing us. The first time we hired her to do a couples session we had such a wonderful time and were so happy with the photos, they captured our relationship so well and were beautiful. Then my now-husband secretly hired her to photograph our engagement proposal. She was wonderful and did an amazing job keeping the secret!! We especially love our photos from that day because they captured the joy and excitement we experienced. We can't wait to hire her again in the future for more family photos."
We had a fantastic experience working with Erin. I was so impressed by how well she handled my kids, and they warmed up to her right away. We met at a location that I chose and she made sure to get a variety of shots with different backgrounds. I definitely recommend her!
Hi, I'm Erin! Transplanted from Colorado, I am now based in the luscious Pacific Northwest (Portland, specifically).
whole-body laughs, playing outside, dogs, romantic gestures, strong coffee, being prompt, working hard, dreaming big, spontaneity, heart to hearts over red wine, natural light, and making photographs.
photography with a photojournalist style, so that means going for a stroll at a park or relaxing at your home to capture genuine moments together. It means using natural light in the serene hours of the morning or late summer afternoon.
that everyone deserves quality, timeless, beautiful photographs of themselves.
