We are so excited that you have stopped by and that you are interested in our work!  Our photography team consists of myself {Erin} and two associates {Noemi & Jennifer}.  Click HERE to meet them and see their work.

As for me , I have been a photographer for 14 years.  I exude my heart, soul, and technical expertise in every single photo I take. It gives me great joy to be in the inner circle of the wedding day; documenting the unrepeatable emotions, events, and details. I strive to make my images bold, exciting, and just a little bit quirky.

We'd love to connect with you.  Please call us at 612.529.9792 or send us an email at mail@erinjohnsonphoto.com.

Warmly, Erin & Team

The GOD + LIFE + PHOTOGRAPHY retreat is an opportunity for professional women photographers to get away for a weekend and renew their hearts before God through photography, business strategy building, community with others, teaching, discussion and worship through holy yoga.

Retreat Details
All lodging and food are included  for three nights and four days at a cozy lodge in northern Wisconsin.  We will talk about how to run a God centered business and help to build your branding and push your photography skills. Highlights include a styled shoot, business and image critique, and holy yoga. 

The GOD Part
Teaching and discussion topics will include finding your true identity in Christ and how to balance God + Life + Photography. Erin and Emily will each share about their own journey as a business owner, wife and mother. You will also be encouraged to talk about your own journey. Each day will include prayer time and worship through Holy Yoga led by Katie Fredrickson.

Emily and Erin will cover photography techniques; including lighting, exposure, posing, and composition. This teaching will be followed by a hands-on portrait shooting of one another (yay for some awesome new head shots, eh?) We will also be doing a styled shoot with professionally designed florals, table settings, dessert and a bride and groom dressed for the occasion! Erin and Emily are experts in shooting details and portraits and have had many of their weddings and styled shoots featured in magazines and blogs. They will explain their process, and then everyone will have the opportunity to apply what they have learned from behind the camera.

The LIFE Part
This retreat is rejuvenating! It’s a chance to get away from daily responsibilities and just be yourself with like-hearted women. Open up, share, and allow yourself to simply relax, enjoy, and receive! 

$795 per student includes lodging & meals. The retreat is open to 11 participants – limited spots remain!

The WHY Part
It’s more than photography workshop, it’s more than a women’s retreat, it’s the best of both and will give you inspiration and confidence behind the camera. The God + Life + Photography retreat is an investment in YOU. Our goal is for each person to leave this retreat refreshed, renewed and refocused on building your business in a God-centered way.
