Working with Justin and Erica for Bob’s Red Mill has been a delight. They are reliable, professional, creative, and always produce stellar content. Every recipe really hits the mark on the brand’s messaging and USPs and they have a great attention to detail that I really appreciate!
We have worked with Erica and Justin to create and activate beautiful and engaging content that they share to reach their fans. Their photography and creative posts represent our natural food brand clients well and are so eye catching that we look forward to sharing their posts in our clients’ social media feeds too!
Working with Erica and Justin has been incredible! Collaborating with them is a dream, thanks to their responsiveness, attention to detail, and quality of work.

We originally reached out to Justin and Erica for our Waterloo Whole30 campaign because of their Whole30 dedicated page, but we also loved that in addition to their food posts, they show the faces behind the camera and give their followers a glimpse into their personal lives. We strive to hire influencers like this because of the real connection they’ve created with their followers, which in turn builds trust. Their sponsored posts come off as less of a transaction and more of a “sneak peek” into something they love so much they just had to share.
Justin and Erica were wonderful to work with on this campaign – they followed campaign guidelines, submitted content in a timely matter, created content that was unique, fun, and engaging, and were always pleasant and easy to communicate with! They provided value to this campaign not only by creating great content, but also by engaging with their followers on their posts. Justin and Erica were so great at responding to follower questions and giving recommendations, which is vital when sharing a new product. We would absolutely work with them again!Lauren Werner, Influencer Marketing Coordinator, VizSense
