Hey! You made it!
What's happening?! I'm Erika Stewart, owner and lead photographer of It Clicks Photo. Upon graduating with my BA degree in Photography at GVSU in 2013, I started looking for office jobs to do during the day while building my business
and learning more about being successful.
Luckily, I landed a job at The Wedding
Shoppe where I sold wedding gowns,
and met some of my best friends,
Codi, Haley and Katie. TWS is
where my dreams started to
really develop. I would hear
about these wonderful events
being put together, and I wanted
to see the details and help the
brides on their day. I got into
wedding photography this way,
starting with friends and family.
In 2015, my friend from college called
me to see if I would shoot her wedding
that October. Little did I know her
fiance's best man would later be my
husband. They set us up on a blind date 4 months
before their wedding, and we hit it off! (If you want to hear more about that, I'd gladly tell you all about it!) From weddings of friends and family, it expanded to friends of friends, and soon enough it became complete strangers- growth in business is a beautiful thing!
The more weddings I photographed, the more I fell in love with the detail pictures of the rings, flowers, and jewelry, the directing and flow for imagery, and capturing love stories. I loved it all so much, I started taking photos for
TWS in 2016 for their social media
and website to help them tell their
own personal "love" story (with their business). This moved to doing
fashion shoots for the company
whenever arrivals of new dresses
came in. I really owe a lot of my own success, learning and community love to The Wedding Shoppe.
