He started my photographic career shooting nature as art. Erik strived to capture the beauty of the moment and share it with the rest of the world. Over time his focus shifted away from nature and natural light to portraits, weddings and the use of creative lighting techniques. Erik wants to translate the moments of the day and the beauty of the bride into a work of art.
Erik was trained by a photojournalistic wedding photographer and still works closely with photojournalists. This close relationship created a unique combination in his photographs, blending storytelling and art.
During a wedding he will capture the bride and groom in natural and relaxed poses. He tries hard to steer away from static posed images and cheesy grins. Erik works to get those candid moments that are real and not staged. During the wedding he won’t ask you to pose or look towards the camera. He let you have your day and will go about getting the images you want.
Weddings are about romance. For the formal portraits and photos of the bride, Erik uses special lighting techniques and equipment to create a portrait that doesn’t look like it was taken by just anyone. He wants your portraits to look like they were taken with studio lighting, without the need for it to actually be present.
Look over Erik’s portfolio of wedding photographs and even his portraits and commercial work. You will see the quality of light (dramatic, creating depth and texture) in all his photos.
He hopes to create works of art from your wedding as well.
