Still in Need of a Wedding Photographer?

Why Emerald Stone Photography?

Your wedding day is such an incredible investment. Whether you spend 2 months or 2 years planning your big day, you put so much thought and detail into every part of your wedding.

Emerald Stone Photography is there to capture every little piece of your day that you put your heart into for you to treasure for a lifetime.


It’s not easy to see what makes a great wedding photographer. Here are a few things to consider during your search:

– Does the photographer have high quality images (not too dark, too light, tinted orange, etc.)?

– Do the photographs have an altered color or over-effecting to them that’s not natural or timeless?

– Does the photographer fit the style of what YOU are looking for (soft and dreamy, loud and fun, funky and sexy, etc.)?

– Do you notice wrinkles, blemishes, unattractive angles, awkward poses or distracting backgrounds in the pictures?

Meet The Team


ERICA, Owner, Founder & CEO
of Emerald Stone Photography.

I started my full time photography and business journey after my beautiful daughter Kayleigh was born. I’ve always been entrepreneurial. I love people, and I enjoy dabbling in lots of different challenges at once.

I am a 2006 graduate of the Art Institute of York, giving me over 10 years of experience in the Digital Arts, Photography and Business field. With my Digital Arts background, I bring a blend of modern, artistic and photojournalistic photography and editing style together to create meaningful photos that you will love and cherish.

There is nothing more important to my team and I than capturing your wedding day exactly the way you envision it. It is with pride that we continue our business through referrals and from many happy couples throughout the years.

JOSH, Lead Photographer
of Emerald Stone Photography.

My grandfather has always been one to get the details right. Use the best archival materials, keep learning and create something worth keeping. Heirlooms. It’s how I was raised.

I incorporate those life lessons in everything I do, from picture-taking to parenting my little girl, to being a good husband. Your memories are important, and I respect that. As a photographer, my goal is to create timeless portraits that are influenced by my love of cinema. I love bright, clean and vibrant colors, and consider these when capturing photographs that reflect the client, not the pose.

This business is based on relationships, developed over time, and we’d love to be the photographers you turn to for those exciting times in your lives!


KATIE, Creative Assistant of
Emerald Stone Photography.

I am the Creative Assistant, and although I work behind-the-scenes, I am thrilled to play even the smallest role in your wedding day.

I graduated from York College of Pennsylvania in 2014 with a degree in English, and I have been working in the wedding industry ever since. I absolutely adore all things writing and reading, and one of my passions is creating words to match the elegance and beauty of your big day. Sharing your journey and your love for one another is so important, and I am honored to be a part of a team that makes this the highest priority.

I can’t wait to share not only the incredible photos from the Emerald Stone Photography team but your beautiful love story as well.
