Erin Petersen
Get to know me

In high school I took a lot of art classes and photography was the space and place to which I always returned and where everything seemed to click. Once I picked up a camera, I never put it back down; it became my constant traveling companion.

I continued to pursue photography and hone my artistic style through college, studying film and digital photography. I received my Bachelor in Art from the University of Minnesota -Twin Cities.

Although, I’ve only been with the SB team for a couple years now, I am right at home alongside my hardworking, creative colleagues. I feel extremely grateful to share intimate moments, excitement, and laughter with every couple. Each wedding is unique and the details are what make this special day your very own. I can’t wait to capture more of these exciting memories and beautifully preserve them forever for you!

What takes up too much of your time?
Reddit, for sure.

If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Give me all the tacos.

What’s one thing your mother/ father taught you that completely changed your life?
My dad told me when I was younger that it’s easy to confuse excitement for anxiousness. Now, when I’m feeling nervous, I just remind myself it’s because I care and am excited about what I’m doing. It makes new situations seem less daunting.

What’s your favorite drink?
Does a root beer float count?

What hobby would you get into if time and money weren’t an issue?
Glass blowing! Funny to think at one point I would’ve said photography, but it’s my career now and I’m so grateful for that!

Who’s your go-to band or artist when you can’t decide on something to listen to?
SZA all day every day

What could you give a 40-minute presentation on with absolutely no preparation?

What irrational fear do you have?
My fear of sharks is pretty irrational seeing as how I live in Wisconsin.

We were so lucky to have the two of you shooting our wedding! We had so much fun with you guys, and are so grateful that you were willing to play along with our goofy ideas. We have received so many compliments from our wedding guests about the two of you- how great you were to work with, how great you were at capturing each moment, and how friendly and fun you were! We are so glad we chose to work with SB Photography and were lucky enough to get the two of you! We loved all of the shots you showed us throughout the day, and can’t wait to see the rest of them!
Thank you again for everything!! We can’t wait to see the pictures!

“Josh and Erin did an amazing job at our wedding. They helped make the night go so smoothly and were so nice. They went above and beyond to make our night special for us and were willing to do anything to get perfect pictures. Couldn’t have asked for a better photographer – I highly recommend them!”

-Stefanie & Santos

“Thank you guys so much! We appreciate everything you did for us. I know our wedding party was a lot to deal with and the weather didn’t exactly cooperate early on, but you guys did a great job keeping us moving forward and getting great pictures. I think Kiryn and I both individually had a minor freak out during the rain, so we definitely appreciate you guys dealing with us and getting some awesome pictures. 🙂 I think after the rain everything went very smoothly! In addition to you two being great photographers, we really enjoyed just hanging out with you guys all day as well. These pictures look great, we are very excited to see the rest!! ”

-Kiryn & Ken

“We are so excited looking through these! 😊 Thank you so much to you and Keri for bringing all of your enthusiasm, talent, patience, and kindness to our day! You both were absolute professionals, and we recommend you to everyone we know. It means so much to us that you took the time to select and edit each photo – you really listened to what we were looking for and cared about everything turning out the way we wanted! We will be in touch again soon – thank you again so much for all you do!!!”

-Emily & Ed

“Erin & Molly from S&B Photography did an OUTSTANDING job taking our photos for our wedding day. Highly recommend! They fit in all the shots we wanted, worked well with family and guests, and were very accommodating. The photos turned out AMAZING. Hiring S&B Photography was some of the best money well spent on the wedding, Definitely gave us high quality value photos. Lots of our guests commented on how great the photos turned out. What really made a huge difference is that S&B Photography were willing to take pictures of other people during our big day, so everyone walked away with great memories. Would use again.”

-Rachel & David

“SB is the BEST! From start to finish, they were wonderful to work with. Finding a photographer who we believed would capture our wedding day in a way that met our high expectations was stressful! With SB we found photographers, Matt and Erin, who not only took BEAUTIFUL pictures that we’ll cherish forever, but who we genuinely enjoyed having by our side throughout the day. I can’t imagine not having them at our wedding! I HIGHLY recommend you stop your search now and hire this incredible company. And if you request Matt and Erin, I promise you will feel like you’re spending your wedding day with 2 of your closest friends in addition to having pictures that exceed your wildest dreams!”
