Kara & Jason
"Looking back, I cannot imagine our wedding day without Ernst being a part of it. He's so incredibly professional, all the while having a comforting calm about him. I am unbelievably grateful that we chose Ernst to tell our story. The man with the camera is pure magic." Kara
Only a few Saturday’s still available June through October for 2021
(Book the date with a small retailer plus have the peace of mind knowing you can reschedule the date at any time).
My style and approach.
People hire me because they ‘get it’. They completely understand that a mostly natural and unchoreographed representation of their wedding day can be truly beautiful. Generally, my clients want to relax and enjoy their day without the constant intervention and fussing of their photographer. They tend to be people who really appreciate thoughtful, well-composed photography and have often searched through site after site looking for it. I am happy to rise to that challenge of providing such imagery because that is exactly what I would want. My clients are more often than not people in creative industries, other photographers, or simply just lovers of quality documentary photography. If this sounds like you then we will all be on the same page.
I feel a huge responsibility to give people something precious and I mean that sincerely. I want people to be able to look back on these images and smile and perhaps shed a tear. I want them to see the day they didn’t see, the little moments as well as the big ones. I want to create a family heirloom.
I put a lot of thought into my photography of your wedding day. I am not happy with second best. I am not happy with duff expressions, unflattering angles, or poor compositions.
I do not have a wedding package list. Cliched as it may sound I do like to keep things very simple. I provide a full day’s coverage for $2500. I typically arrive about an hour or so before you leave your home or hotel to get married and then I quietly shoot all day, usually staying a little beyond the first dance. That 9 hours generally covers all the major aspects of the day, but I can stay longer if you need me on a pro-rata basis. A few weeks after your wedding you will receive a usb in its presentation box ready for you to view and print to your heart’s content. You will also receive a beautiful online wedding gallery to share with family and friends.
If this feels like what you are looking for simply get in touch and I’ll let you know if I still have the date available. Provide me with a few details regarding your wedding day below, text me at 309.287.0848 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to connecting!
