Telling stories has been in Erin’s blood since she was old enough to pick up a pen. After a caring high-school teacher told her she had a gift for writing, she set off on a path to become a journalist, spending her first six years out of college as a newspaper reporter. Over time, she gravitated toward photography as well, which naturally lead to wedding photography, where her love of storytelling swelled to an outright obsession. Through the beautiful, one-of-a-kind family celebrations we are fortunate enough to be invited to, she loves seeing the depth of human relationships and discovering what is most important to people – in their lives, and on this one day. She loves the connection that develops between photographer and subject, the thrill of beautiful light, seeing raw emotion unfold before her eyes – and blending it all together inside her camera. It’s an honor she will always be in awe of.

Erin met Ben in 2007 at a photographer’s wedding in Mexico, where both were guests (for once!). They fell in love and rearranged their lives to be together. Erin moved from Atlanta, and Ben moved from Santa Fe, and they settled in San Francisco, where they spent seven years building Chrisman Studios together and traveling the world photographing weddings. 

Erin and Ben now live in Charleston, South Carolina with Roxy, their tw0-year-old daughter. They are still photographing weddings all over the world, and are also proud owners of a portrait studio in downtown Charleston called King & Fields Studios
