Introduction: My business stands out through the quality of work I produce for my clients, and the way I treat my clients. For example, on, I have been awarded the Couples Choice Award for 4 years in a row. I have 44 reviews on WeddingWire for an average of 4.9 out of 5.0 stars. You may read my reviews both there and here on Thumbtack, and you will see what others are saying. I create a variety of lighting and poses in portraits, and capture a cross-the-board array of photos when I photography events. do this for a very reasonable investment. I edit each photo to produce a high quality image while maximizing quality of each photo straight out of the camera. My turnaround is usually only a couple of days on edits for portraits, and 4 days on weddings and events. I truly enjoy all aspects of photography from lighting to composition to editing. I enjoy the process of producing each photo, and it brings me great pleasure to see my photos bring joy to others. I basically enjoy everything about my photography.

Eric did AMAZING when working with us for our engagement photos!! It was a hot day but he still worked so well with the sun and heat and poses!! I highly recommend selecting him for your photography needs!! He was available quickly considering we are not from Jacksonville and had the proposal two days prior!! He works very well with children as well!! ❤️❤️ Thanks again Eric!!

Wedding Photography

Eric was very polite, professional and timely. We are highly satisfied with the quality of our photos from our wedding. We watched the DVD slideshow over and over again because of how well put together it is, not to mention the quality of the photos are spectacular! I would definitely book Eric for future events and refer him to my family and friends. Thank you so much for capturing our special day!

Engagement Photography

My experience working with Eric was wonderful. I hired him to shoot my surprise proposal on the beach. Eric was punctual, kind, and extremely accommodating. He remained inconspicuous, so that my girlfriend was unaware he was there! He even stuck around an extra hour to make sure we were happy with all of our poses/shots. His turnaround time was quick as well - about 2-3 days. Our photos turned out great and we couldn't be happy with Eric's work product. I highly recommend Eric if you are in need of a talented, easy-going photographer!

Portrait Photography

Eric was so responsive each and every time. I had reached out to two other photographers as well and one never even got back to me. Eric was friendly, open to hear out my questions. We are from out of town and he provided us suggestions for photo site on the beach close to our hotel. Eric provided digital album in record speed (48 hours) and mailed flash drive in 48 hours. Eric was on-time, friendly and kind. Eric lets you do whatever poses you want and isn't pushy or demanding.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I tailor my price to the customer's needs, and price competitively to give clients a great bargain.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I work with a client by consulting with them to get an idea of what they need, and often research good locations for portrait sessions. Upon completion of a session, whether it be portraits, weddings or non-wedding events, I explain my turnaround time to clients. Upon completion of a wedding, portrait session or event, I edit the photos, and immediately notify the client when I post their photos to my client page. I also immediately send via priority mail their flash drive with high resolution digital copies of their edited photos. Payment is due on the day of photography. The only type of photography I where I require a deposit is wedding photography. A deposit for wedding photography is 20% of the total investment. I value good communication with my clients. I do my best to give clients a clear picture, no pun intended, of what I'm doing every step of the way. Here is the bottom line, however: I know how to wing it when necessary.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am self taught, with a wealth of experience. My first photography work on any professional level was 40 years ago when I was a senior in high school making photos for the yearbook. I'm always researching my field of photography, and editing of photographs. I also experiment with different lighting and camera settings.
