Life isn’t about fake, uncomfortable poses – it’s about those real, candid, true to life moments! I specialize in capturing those doubled-over laughs, lovesick glances, happy tears, and silly faces. While classic portraits are often mixed in with those epic pictures, my focus is on catching the real personalities behind each smile!

With my shoots, you never have to worry about feeling awkward or uncomfortable. As soon as I arrive, I make it my mission to get everyone laughing and telling stories to break the tension for anyone feeling nervous! Soon enough, you won’t even remember I have a camera in my hands 😉

I might be based out of Springfield, Missouri, but I’ve got my bags packed to travel ANYWHERE (seriously, they’re always packed)! No matter where you are, I want to capture your EPIC shots! Now, break out your bucket list because we’re about to capture some adventurous, EPIC moments. Let’s do this!

"Erin Gamble is hands down the best photographer I have had to take our family photos. She is professional and personable and goes out of her way to make the best experience possible for everyone involved. She has an excellent eye when it comes to photography and knows what it takes to get that “best shot”! I would highly recommend her for any photography needs."

- Erin Nelson

"Erin is a 5-star rated photographer for a reason. She is not only incredibly talented with her ability to capture amazing moments beautifully with her camera, she is also most talented working with people in general. Erin has such a calm and engaging personality. She did a wonderful job of helping our family stay in the moment and relaxed enough to just be ourselves throughout the process of being photographed on our wedding day. She even took time to sit with our youngest son and let him show her some of his beloved Polaroids he’s taken of family vacations that he’s so proud of! Erin specifically curated photo opportunities that captured our unique vibe and love - it felt as though we were with a friend all along. I can’t say enough great things about her. We came from out of town to have our wedding in a place where we didn’t know any of our vendors. Erin has a great reputation that precedes her, and came highly recommended by multiple vendors in the wedding industry. I’m so very glad she was available to work with us. In line with so many other reviewers, I very highly recommend booking this talented photographer for your special day!"

"Gambles Photography has captured all of the most important moments of my life; my proposal, engagement photos, my wedding, two boudoir sessions(before and after baby,) maternity photos, the birth of my son, his newborn photos and several family photos since then. My favorite family photos were taken during her snow machine minis she does every year! Erin is a joy to be around and makes you very comfortable as she's doing your photos. She also is amazing at getting my little guy to smile for them! My house is covered in photos she's taken and I plan to have many more done."

- Maranda Vincent

"Erin is amazing. She has been doing our family pictures for almost five years now! This includes two adoptions! I have her make me a professional photo album as a keep sake. I love all the pictures and can never choose what to include in the album so I turn it over to her. She knows how to get my teen boys loosened and smiling. My favorite sessions with her was color wars for my sons adoption this summer. Due to COVID we where not able to have him a formal celebration. My boys still talk about how fun it was! I would recommend her for all your photography needs!"

- Max Wagner

"Erin was a fantastic photographer to work with for our wedding! She is very positive, professional, and phenomenal. She was completely committed to making our day the way we wanted it, helping us celebrate the best way possible, and capturing those moments for us. My wife and I 1000% recommend her for any occasion! She clearly demonstrated why she is the best in Springfield and we couldn’t be happier with the results."

Hi there! I’m Erin ~ Story teller, travel enthusiast, and hopeless romantic! And this is Dawn, the ultimate hype girl and VP of GP! Photography is my passion and my purpose! My style is very candid, true to the moment, and adventurous. I’m not afraid of getting a little dirty: Climbing trees, wading in a river, army crawling through the field, you name it, I’ve done it, and I have the shots to show for it! Whatever it takes to get that EPIC shot! Choosing a photographer can be a big decision. Do your personalities click? Do you like the style? Is the photographer offering everything you need and want? Thank you for considering Gambles Photography, and hopefully we’re a perfect match!

With love,

Erin Gamble Northrip
