Erika Kessel is passionate about story telling through images. She began her career focusing on photography and later earned her M.A. in Design from Pratt Institute. She transitioned into working on sets as a Production Designer and Prop Stylist once she realized she had a natural talent for dressing a set and telling a story.

She has styled campaigns for some of the industry’s leading brands and agencies, including Anhueser Busch, L’oreal, Macy’s, Bed Bath and Beyond, Pottery Barn and National Geographic. Erika pulls from her experience in photography, design and film as a Prop Stylist and always works closely with the rest of the department heads to create visual storytelling that not only reflects her personal aesthetic but allows for the client to see their ideas and vision come to life.
