"Ernst has such an amazing talent for capturing ‘moments’ which is exactly what you want on your wedding day. It’s not the formal photos that remind you how great your day was – it’s the natural fun and excitement that is so important to be documented. Ernst’s ability not to miss a moment is incredible, and his energy and true passion comes across in the photos." Brittany and Chris



With You.  Your Family.  Your Friends.

This is your story.  A story about you. Your family. And your friends. Everyone coming together to celebrate your love and commitment to each other.  Having walked the path you are on now, I know this day provides a rare opportunity to capture the once-in-a-lifetime moments that happen between the people who mean the most to you, and who love you the most.

Your Authentic Story, Artfully Photographed

You can truly relive your wedding day when you can view the complete story from start to finish – moments artfully photographed in sequence that captures the real, authentic and often fleeting moments of the two of you together, with your family, as well as with your friends who were there to celebrate the day with you. 

For most of the day, I will be an observer photographing your parents who will hold hands and cry on the first row of the chapel. Your sister dancing with that boy she will marry in three years. Those kids who will grow up so quickly.  Your first kiss as a married couple, your best friend busting out his signature dance moves, and the flower girl asleep under a table.

A Love Story … to be re-told

The intention with every wedding is the same; to create a beautiful, genuine story that is uniquely yours and that will enable you to remember not only what your wedding day looked like but also what it felt like.

Although this is your story, it won’t be just for you.  Your wedding photos will also be for your family, your friends and, perhaps one day, for your children.

On Your Wedding Day

For most of the day, I will blend in with your wedding guests to capture real, authentic moments between the two of you, your family and your friends.  During this time, I’ll be relaxed, friendly … and as unobtrusive as possible.

For a small portion of the day, we’ll take a few simple photos of you as a couple, you with your respective families as well as with members of the bridal party.  I’ll provide you with a simple, initial list of combinations that you’ll be able to amend as you desire.

We will also set aside a few moments of the two of you together.  This will be more about setting the scene than stiff posing and we’ll try to approach these so that you both look and feel as natural as possible.

After Your Wedding

While you take a much-deserved rest after your wedding, I’ll get to work hand-editing each photo individually.

Within a couple of weeks, you will be able to view a visual re-telling of your wedding day story and feel again all the emotions you experienced.  You will be able to view your wedding from the perspective of your friends and family who were there to celebrate the day with you.  And you’ll provide others who were not at your wedding with the ability to re-live your wedding day and feel the emotions you felt as if they were actually there.
