I've had a camera in my hand ever since I was a kid, and have accumulated 10+ years of photography experience. I've also been featured by publications such as Wedding Rule and Couture Colorado. Over the years, 100+ clients have granted me the honor of documenting their lives through my lens, and I'm grateful to also consider each client a friend (and the more, the merrier!)
While my imagery is influenced by the timeless aesthetic and rich colors of Kodak film photography, my true inspiration comes from celebrating and capturing the stories and relationships unique to each couple and family. I invite you to peruse through my website, learn more about photography with me, and then be sure to say "hey!" Let's make some magic.
Hi, I'm Erin!
am so excited you're here! My name is Erin, and I'm your Colorado wedding and family photographer. I'm a sucker for stunning natural light, and have a passion for preserving precious moments and everyday beauty. Big smiles, infectious laughter, colorful flowers and the clinking of champagne glasses are just a few of my favorite things.
I grew up body surfing in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Florida, and playing make-believe in the backwoods of North Carolina. My free time was spent reading, dancing, and riding my horse... and as I've gotten older, honestly not much has changed!
In 2010 I went to college at North Carolina State University, and it was there, in an Early American History Honors class taught by a quirky and charming professor, that I met my (now) husband. Fast forward 7 years, and the military moved my husband (and thus myself) to Colorado Springs in the gorgeous Rocky Mountains! He is my best friend, and we've been happily married since 2019. We enjoy frequenting breweries, watching football, and playing with our young daughter and pets.
My background story
consider myself a Southerner at heart, even though both of my parents are Yankees.
A Look into my
1 / 2
My family is the cornerstone of my life and my "Why." I am thankful to say I grew up with loving parents who have always supported my endeavors, and who encourage me to be (and do) my best. I also have an older sister who always has my back and keeps us laughing!
I'm blessed that my family has grown to now include my incredible husband and our beautiful daughter. Our daughter is the light of our lives, and it is truly amazing to watch her take in and experience the world around her!

I learned to walk by holding onto our family dog, and I wrote my first "essay" when trying to convince my parents to let me get a hamster (at age 6!) As a teenager my love for animals expanded to include horses, and I eventually went on to compete for my college equestrian team. As an adult I still cherish our pets, and their presence in my life is a constant. My family and I currently share our lives with our 2 dogs (Bailey - a Bluetick Coonhound, and Jolene - a German Shepherd mix,) and a cat (Spartacus Neville)!

"Our wedding day was the best day ever, and Erin Winter Photography definitely captured that! Erin took the time to get to know my husband and I even before any photos were taken. Erin made sure she understood every aspect for what we wanted on our special day. The day of she made sure even the little details were captured. When we received our photos back it was like reliving our amazing wedding day all over again! We would recommend Erin to anyone!" - Jess
"Erin was so fantastic to work with that we hired her for our engagement photos as well as re-engagement photos after Covid postponed our wedding! She is professional, fun, and made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. Her work is top quality and we can’t wait to work with her again soon!" - Sarah
"Erin is awesome! She is so friendly, outgoing but personable, and snaps the best photos! She is extremely flexible as well. When we did family photos with our 8 month old, she was so patient and made me feel and my family so comfortable in front of the camera. Thank you Erin!" - Alicia
"Erin did an amazing job taking our maternity photos. She was flexible and rescheduled our date due to subzero temperatures, since we had planned an outdoor session. She took us to the most picturesque locations at Garden of the Gods, and was able to capture the very special time in our lives! Erin found the best lighting and most flattering poses. The photos turned out beautiful. We would recommend Erin to anyone who needs family photos of any kind in the Colorado Springs area!" - Katie
