Hi! My name is Erica and I am a photographer from Boston who loves taking pictures of weddings, kids, families, you name it. This blog is a great place to keep up on what I have been up to, from my latest shoots, to my random adventures. I want to thank all the people that support my dreams and help them come true. Thank you to all of the couples who have included me in their special day. I have been so lucky to have the coolest clients on the planet, and couldn't ask for anything more. Thank you so much for visiting!

    Happy Easter!

    I had such a great day. I spent the morning hanging out with nana, then later spent some time with my cousin and her five kids. When I got home, Reese had a HUGE easter basket waiting filled with my favorite (sour patch kids). He knows the way to a girl's heart :)
    I hope everyone enjoyed the day and had a happy easter! I did. :)

    Create your own wedding website

    Every now and then, I come across awesome wedding ideas that I want to share with you. Yesterday, I found a company that offers free wedding websites for you to stay organized and keep you guests in the loop. Here is the site: www.ewedding.com

    Also, here is an article with a few more details about how cool it is to have one:

    Keeping your friends, family and wedding party in the loop of your upcoming wedding can be very time consuming and burdensome. But not anymore. Having your own Personal Wedding Website will take care of all that, plus much more.

    Having a professional wedding site is a great way to share all the news and events on your upcoming wedding. You can post the date, location, time and directions to your Stag, Shower, Rehearsal and other events. You can post your Registry and add items to a personal Wish List, list local attractions for friends and family that are visiting and collect best wishes with your Guest Book.

    Getting the word out about your site is as easy as including your web address on your invitations. We have seen many invitations with 'For more information, and directions, please visit www.your-wedding.com.' This way, everyone invited to your wedding, including those who can't make it, can go to your wedding website to get up to date information. You can edit any of the information on your site, even the style, to keep it updated and reflect any changes you have made. Another great benefit of a web address is the ability to put it on wedding favors, wedding bulletins or for posting at the reception. This way people will come back to see your wonderful wedding day photos.

    Keeping track of those coming to your wedding has never been easier either. Offering online RSVP is one of the most popular features of a wedding website. It saves you time and money, no extra envelopes or stamps required, and long waits for getting back the RSVP's in the mail. Just put a simple link to your site in the invitation and your friends can RSVP at your website and you will be sent a message right away. Your site will also keep the RSVP's in memory so you can manage your list and know who you didn't hear back from yet.

    The above features, along with many more, will really make planning a wedding, and sharing it with friends and family around the world, a pleasurable experience. A Personal Wedding Website, let everyone share the joy of your big day.

    Race for a Cure 2008

    As most of you know, my dad, who was my best friend, role model, and my hero among all the other roles he played in my life, passed away February 27, 2007 from Multiple Myeloma. It has been close to a year now, and while it doesn't seem to be getting any easier, I could never have made it this far without the love and support from my friends and family. Mom, Kelly, Reese, Dave, to name a few, I love you so much and can't begin to explain how much you mean to me.
    Every year, my family, friends and I, have an annual tradition of running in the Multiple Myeloma Foundation's Race for a Cure. We have managed to raise around $5,000 annually and hope to keep up this important task. This year, I will be photographing the event instead of running, but will continue to raise as much as I can for the cause.
    I ask everyone reading this blog to help me in my endeavor by DONATING HERE. Thank you in advance for all of your support, help, and kindness.
    Here are a few shots from last year's event:

    Weddings are expensive! Between the flowers, food, and invitations, it can definitely add up, so we are integrating a new idea for your photography. This is your opportunity to register not only at Crate and Barrel to get that pots and pans set, but with Erica Ferrone Photography to allow your guests to participate in giving you the gift that will last a LIFETIME, your wedding album.

    Give us a call to come pick up some nice cards to pass along to your wedding party, family, guests etc.

    As always, thanks for looking!

    Michael, Ryan and Ciera

    I really miss being little. Hanging out with Michael, Ryan and Ciera made me remember the times when the most important thing in the world was winning at hide-and-go-seek, or soccer. We spent the whole afternoon playing games and climbing on their playset. If I could relive one day from my childhood, it would be playing cops and robbers with my old friend Chrissy Carr, and then later, hanging out at our fort in the woods. We actually believed we were going to dig a hole to the other side of the world!
    Thanks for looking!

    North Carolina

    So a few weeks back, I had an engagement shoot with Taurus and Rodney in North Carolina, which allowed me the great opportunity to drop in on my sister and her husband (Tom) to see their new house and the newest addition to their family, their dog Tessy (yes, you know you're from Boston when....) Their house is absolutely gorgeous. They have have the best neighbors and the weather certainly helps. Here is a few shots I took of their new life:

    Announcing Make-Up Artist, Jessica Barry!

    From time to time, I work with incredible vendors and I like to fill in my brides about their awesome talents. Jessica Barry is one of them. She goes to brides' houses to do their make-up and even offers dicounted prices to their bridesmaids. She also does trial runs to test out the look so it is one less thing to be worried about the day of their wedding. And man, the girl has skills!

    I was so honored when she asked me to design her business card:

    Fun with photo booths!

    This Sunday I had such a great time at the Westin/Copley bridal expo. I got to hang out with cool brides, and more surprisingly, very understanding grooms who were willing to put up with invitations, photographers, fashion shows, etc. for an afternoon.

    Normally, my favorite part of these expos is the cake (of course), but this time boston photo booth beat out the competition. This is a company that rents out PHOTO BOOTHS for weddings so that all of your guests can leave with their own fun pictures! If you are interested, here is the site, http://www.bostonphotoboothrental.com/

    Of course I had to join in on the fun! Here is Sheryl and I:

    Briana and Ricky's Wedding

    Briana and Ricky got married in the quaint town of Hopedale, MA. Felix Rust had asked me to be his second shooter for the day. It was so cute! Ricky is a cop there so for their main entrance into the reception hall, they drove in on a police golf cart with the blue lights flashing. Good food, good friends, GREAT dancing.
    Here is the ALBUM that Felix made of the event. Go check out FELIX RUST PHOTOGRAPHY for more pictures of the event!
