Seattle Family Photographer

ERIN SCHEDLER


While attending college at UW, I apprenticed under a fantastic wedding photographer, learning how to shoot film and run a photography business. Committed to my career “plan” however, I moved into sales and marketing, completed my MBA, then took a director role for a solar startup. Photography was my side hustle for a decade but, after my son was born in 2012, I couldn’t ignore my calling anymore. I quit my job and took photography full time. Next to marrying my husband, it was my best decision ever.

Formal, stiff, posed images are not my thing. I prefer natural light and candid shots instead. I don’t want to distract from the purpose of the photo, which is to capture you exactly as you are, at that beautiful moment, with the people you love, in an image that will stand the test of time. My motto: “What will you remember most? Let’s photograph that”. 

Based in Seattle, WA but available for travel worldwide.

RELAXED AND FUN SESSIONS

BUT WE'RE NOT GREAT IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA


Most people dread photos. That’s because other photographers ask you to look at the camera, contort your body and neck, and force an expression. Torture!

I don’t do that. Instead of forcing a shot, I prompt. For example, at a family session I might ask the parents to stick together and kids to hide behind them. When I count to 3, the kids have to jump out and yell “boogers”! Kids have fun, parents laugh, and we get a beautiful shot.

For couples, I might ask one person the most annoying trait of living with the other person. Burn? Maybe. But it always gets a belly laugh, and great shots.

I keep the pace up, and move around the location to keep everything light and fun, and the photos interesting and full of motion. Before you know it, you’re done. So many clients finish, saying “that was really easy…I actually had fun!”. Exactly as photo taking should be.


WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING

Brooke + Jesse
Erin is amazing! We have used her for family pictures many times and each time the photos came out perfectly. She does a great job of getting our baby to smile and laugh. She is able to get a great variety of poses and backgrounds, and is open to recreating any specific shots we want, while understanding that time is limited when shooting with a toddler. She also does a great job of catching all those little moments in between poses that showcase everyday life as a parent.

Elle + Brendan
Erin came to Thailand to photograph our destination wedding. From capturing candid moments, putting even complete strangers at ease, she was thorough, kind and did an amazing job. In the months leading up to the wedding, brought a sense of enthusiasm and her post-wedding followup was just as friendly and dedicated. Erin is that perfect combination of talent, thoughtful professionalism, and grace.

Megan + Ben
Erin shot our wedding and she was able to capture the day exactly as my husband and I remember it. She is that remarkable combination of easy-going, detail-oriented, and creative. I have nothing but amazing things to say about Erin and her photography, and would recommend her to anyone. This gal is the real deal.

Erin took both my maternity and newborn photos and they are amazing. She captured our family perfectly, I highly recommend her - she is an awesome artist. She is a new mom herself, was so accommodating of our newborn little guy, and had all the tricks to keep him calm and happy through the shoot.
