Winter Wonderland Wedding: Geneanne + Glenn

This is exactly how we wanted our wedding pics to look like! Your vision and technique is unparalleled to any other photographer’s work I’ve ever seen

Wow. I literally do not know what to write. This man is the best photographer… EVER. Amazing shots of us and of all my guests. I could not have imagined better wedding photos. I mean, I knew they would be amazing, but I never thought they would be THIS amazing. Thank you so much Erwin for capturing the best day of my life. We had a blast with you in Vegas. I honestly did not even notice you guys there, which I guess is a good thing! I had no idea you guys were taking these shots and I am so glad you did. Everyone talks about just enjoying the day and not to worry about missing out on things. I felt as though I got to experience what everyone was else was experiencing through this amazing photos. You are truly the best. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Our engagement session was fun and easy.  You felt as if you were out taking pictures with a friend.  The wedding, even easier.

 

 

We met Erwin at a coffee shop.  It’s pretty clear early on if you are going to connect with someone or not.  Erwin was immediately accommodating and friendly.  No pushy sales tactic, just eager to show his work and find out about us.

I’m tough.  I work in a very visual industry so my standards are high, and worse, not easy to photograph!  They’ll be no cover of Vanity Fair for me any time soon.  We reviewed other work; most of the standards applied, center headshot type photography with little to no visual style.  And then came Erwin.  He’s as much a photojournalist as he is wedding photographer.  After all, your event is a series of events told in motion, not just a few snaps to remember who came.

Our engagement session was fun and easy.  You felt as if you were out taking pictures with a friend.  The wedding, even easier.  Who wants to worry about everything?  The idea is hire the right people (professional people) and let them do their thing.  Erwin and his second photographer were both fantastic, great directors, and knew exactly how to control the early part of the evening to get what they needed.  From there, they were invisible, but constantly documenting and interacting in the perfect way at the perfect time.

They delivered, and boy did they deliver.  I can’t imagine the time it took to edit so many images, but they were all great.  We stayed in contact the entire time and all the results were wonderful.

I can say without hesitation, Erwin is not only someone I would recommend, but I’m proud to say feels like a long term friendship.  Can’t say enough.

I never felt, not one single time, scripted or unnatural. He let us be our goofy selves, and gently guided us to “share our fire that lights up his camera”

 

Erwin was by far the greatest surprise of our wedding planning. His aim for accuracy and professionalism not only exceeded our expectations, but I’m pretty sure our entire guest list would like to hire him for any and all upcoming occasions.  I witnessed my friends wanting to follow, help, and be-friend him … not because he needed any assistance whatsoever, rather they were enamored in AWE with his endless & clear communication, flourishing ideas, cool presence and keen eye.  Though I’m sure he would have appreciated some space, he never once cracked or even politely asked attendees to get out of his way. Oh no! Erwin remained quietly focused like a true artist; nothing could deter him from capturing any specific moment in time that he deemed authentic or special.

Because our destination wedding was located in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, many of our friends and family were not able to make the trek. Though their absence was missed greatly, I was thrilled Erwin was able to capture and deliver live moments to share with them. Moments I had forgotten, or simply not able to comprehend their greatness at the time due to my overwhelming emotions or constant distraction. As the bride, I felt so nervous as I anxiously awaited every little planned event to execute flawlessly.  In fact, until I saw the pictures I was honestly shocked to see all the joyful moments filled with laughter that Erwin secretly captured.  Every single person replied to our photo album thankful because they felt like they were there.  Now that to me is pure magic.

I could honestly write a ten page dissertation describing my respect for Erwin and his colleague Daniel (whom he hired locally in Mexico) … I just wish him every bit of success he so grateful deserves. I have attended a fair share of weddings from enormous southern soirees to the posh beaches of Palm Beach where I witnessed my girlfriends standing tirelessly posing and holding awkward positions with fake smiling for dated shots of their demanding photographer. I never felt, not one single time, scripted or unnatural. He let us be our goofy selves, and gently guided us to “share our fire that lights up his camera”. I can not sing enough praises for this man, any bride who’s fortunate enough to connect with Erwin should be as absolutely overjoyed as I am. Thank you Erwin, thank you from the bottom of my heart … I never thought in a million years I would have such beautiful captured moments to share for the rest of my life.
