Hi there! I am excited to announce that I have a new website which you can access at ericadietzphotography.com.
Thank you <3
...but I was born Erica Sue.
Named after my father (Eric) and given my mother's middle name (Sue), I grew up in Homer City, Pennsylvania, which is smaller than it sounds. I enrolled at the Indiana University of Pennsylvania as a young artist where I learned how to create and critique art, which would later become the foundation of my photography career. After graduating, I took on an internship as a photojournalist at the Valley News Dispatch where I fell in love with visual storytelling--as well as the man who would later become my husband, Steve. After working 3 years as a freelance news photographer, followed by 4 years of working as a staff photojournalist, I am eager to pursue weddings and portraiture full-time.
My shooting style is heavily influenced by art and photojournalism: my appreciation for art taught me strong composition and awareness to light, and the skills I developed as a photojournalist trained me to document candid moments with ease. I combine these elements in fun ways to coach you and capture your personalities--not poses.
I currently reside in Cabot, Pennsylvania with my amazing husband, Steve, and our Golden Retriever puppy, Roxie. And yes, I share way too many pictures of her.
