    Eric was a life saver! My original plan for having wedding photos fell through last minute and I didn't think I was going to find anyone!!! He responded to my post very quickly with an impressive portfolio. It was a pleasure to work with him. The photos he took are absolutely breathtaking. So glad it worked out that he could be there to share our special day! Couldn't have asked for anyone better. :)

    Had to write a review ASAP because you were an absolute pleasure to work with. You were able to group my crazy wedding party together and get great photos in before the rain. Even with screaming babies you kept it all together and captured the best shots. Could not thank you enough for being so flexible and working around my schedule. You are a true professional and outdid yourself. Thank you for making my day the BEST day ever I could not have had a better photographer.

    We hired Erik because of how excited he seemed at the idea of shooting pictures for our outdoor, waterfall wedding. We are so glad we did because we have the most beautiful wedding album I could imagine. Erik was so professional and on time. Other than posed photos, we barely noticed he was there, and he captured all the best moments of our day. We would absolutely hire again, and highly recommend!

    Erik is AWESOME. We did an engagement shoot with him and were pretty nervous about it. We are very "photographically challenged"people, but wanted to capture this exciting time in our lives. Right from the beginning, Erik made us feel welcomed, comfortable, and relaxed to get the most amazing shots! We cannot wait to see these photos (will post) and for him to shoot our wedding next year! We could not be more thrilled at his professionalism, personality, creativity and artistic choices. This guy is the real deal. He is worth every penny. HIRE HIM!
