ERICA ERICA BECKMAN PRINCIPAL PHOTOGRAPHER AND FOUNDER View Erica's Portfolio I’ve had a long-term love affair with photography, from my experimental college days photographing punk bands, to my years as a Wall Street Journal photo editor. Today I bring creativity as well as exacting editorial standards to all my work, and I love what I do. Clean Plate Pictures is all about capturing the heart and soul of a celebration, recording the big events as well as unexpected candid moments. We love weddings. We love the uniqueness of each couple’s story. We love the nerves and excitement, and everyone dressing fancy for a day. We love the aunt who brought her poodle. We love embarrassing bursts of emotion and the palpable joy after the vows. We love raging dance floors and exhausted revelers leaving in the moonlight. We love witnessing all of this through our lens and presenting it back to you, because weddings are amazing. Clean Plate Pictures makes the experience of being photographed easygoing and fun, so you look and feel happy and relaxed. And although the day may fly by for you, we capture the entire thing so you have visual memories that will make you laugh, melt and maybe tear up a bit.
