Music is my inspiration

As a musician and a former recording engineer, my immersion in the world of sound has deeply influenced and inspired my approach to photography. Just as music is a language of emotion and expression, I strive to capture visual melodies and rhythms through my lens. My understanding of composition, harmony, and storytelling, honed through years of musical practice and performance, informs the way I frame scenes, balance elements, and evoke emotions in my photographs. Just as a musician meticulously crafts each note to convey a desired feeling, I meticulously compose each image to evoke a specific mood or narrative. Moreover, my appreciation for the interplay of light and shadow, akin to the dynamics in music, enhances my ability to play with lighting and create depth in my photography. Overall, my music background serves as a rich foundation for my creative vision, infusing my photography with a unique sense of rhythm, harmony, and emotional resonance.

About Eric

Hello there! I'm Eric. Thank you very much for considering me to photograph your wedding day. I love the fact that no two weddings are the same. Every couple brings their love, desires, dreams and families together for what is one of the most important personal events of our lives. Marriage.


A little about myself...I was a recording engineer for 25 years before I ever picked up a camera professionally. I have visited 17 different countries, have four kids and a wonderful, loving wife. Our dog is a 15 year old Cairn Terrier mix. I play guitar in a classic rock band. I was an art director for Indiana University as well.


I would be thrilled to meet you and talk about your very special day...your plans, your expectations, your hopes and dreams. I've shot weddings in Palm Springs, Chicago, Louisville, Indianapolis, Maine, and countless other cities across the US. Want to have a destination wedding? Let's plan it! How about an elopement shoot? I have a passport and I'm ready to go!
