Why should I learn from you two?
Well, Erica & Chris have a fun photo history together. One of Erica’s first engagement sessions ever was of Chris and Brisa. And Chris’ first ever wedding was of Erica and Jeff. As you can see from the images below, they both started somewhere and have come quite a long way since then! =)
