About Eric

I’m a New Hampshire wedding photographer with a photojournalistic approach to documenting wedding days, and a contemporary twist on wedding portraiture.

I began my photography career documenting rock climbers scaling cliffs throughout the U.S. By combining my passion for adventure with my love of art and design, I very quickly became obsessed with creating images that were not only “pretty” but conveyed a sense of “being there” and of the emotions felt by my subjects. Seeing and capturing fleeting moments from behind a lens proved to be a powerful addiction which led me to portraiture and wedding photography. On the wedding day, I strive to create images of a couple that show the spectrum of emotions felt on one of the most important days of their lives.

I have been photographing weddings in New England since 2003. I photographed my first wedding on my own in the Fall of 2008. Since then, I have photographed well over 400 weddings, mostly in New England, but also as far away as Wyoming, New Orleans and the Cayman Islands.

I currently photograph approximately 30 weddings per year, which allows me to focus on providing great service to each and every client.

“I am passionate about life and the images that I create. As a visual storyteller, I strive to create beautiful images of real people and sincere emotions.”

A few of my favorite things…

Family First

My family is the reason for all of this. I worked in investments when my wife and I had children, and we decided that it would be better for all of us if we raised our kids vs. letting daycare do it for us. Photography has afforded me the opportunity to be home with my kids when they were little, and now when they get home from school, coach their basketball and baseball teams, and so many other irreplaceable things.

A Photog’s Best Friend

I love animals, and top on that list is of furry critters is our rescue mutt Polly. She’s almost nine years old now, but working from home she is my constant companion. Scared of everything including her shadow, she is also fiercely protective of her “kids.”

On Belay!

I have climbed rock and ice all throughout the U.S., and it’s these adventures that laid the foundation for my photography career. At first, a few images sold helped fund the next big trip, but eventually that helped me recognize the potential I was holding in my hands with a camera. A planned trip to the Bugaboos that coincided with the birth of my daughter helped push me towards weddings and other photographic pursuits that would not take me away for weeks at a time. And the rest, as they say, is history.

Play Ball!

I love baseball. I played into college, but an ankle injury ended my playing career. About 8 years ago I began playing again, and currently play in the Coastal New England Baseball League. There feels like no better way to reconnect with my roots than lacing up my spikes and running out onto the diamond! And while I love the Red Sox, I will always be a Phillies phan. I once took batting practice with Phillies legend and Hall of Famer Mike Schmidt at the old Veterans Stadium, which was truly a highlight from my youth.

More snow please!

Summer is nice and all, but winter is where it’s at! Especially in the mountains. Skiing, ice climbing, the solitude of a hike in a snowy forest… I love it! I grew up in Delaware where we had winter but not much of it. And while winters have been pretty lame in NH the past couple of years, I’ll take a cold, snowy day over hot and humid every single time!
