about me

who is

indie pearl??

Hi!! My name is Erika and that might have you wondering where the name Indie Pearl Photography came from... well, Indie Pearl is my niece! 

In 2013, when I was starting my photography biz, I thought Erika Smith Photography would just blend in with every other name out there and I wanted something unique. My little sis was pregnant with her first baby and when I asked what they were planning to name her, she said "Indie Pearl". I thought it was so cute, perfectly unique and asked if I could use her name for my business. She said yes and Indie Pearl Photography was born... then a few months later, Indie Pearl Garcia was too!

But, I'm Erika. A born and raised Florida girl. I'm super chill and low maintenance. My hair only looks like that picture on the left on the days I leave the salon, otherwise, it's a wavy MESS. I love reality TV, comedies, working out, theme parks and my Peloton bike. I don't take too seriously, but LOVE wedding photography. That I take seriously. ;)


“We felt comfortable and confident. Your photos really captured what it was like to be at our wedding.”

"YOU DID SUCH A WONDERFUL JOB!!

My biggest fear was not perfectly capturing our wedding day through photographs. When I scroll through our wedding album, I feel like I'm reliving all of the joy and fun that we had that day. The pictures are everything I ever wanted - and more!"
