As a wedding photojournalist, my approach to shooting is unobtrusive and intuitive, with an attention to detail. I take great pride in photographing beautiful portraiture, but the essence of my work is artfully capturing those joyful moments in-between. Those brief instances help tell the beautiful wedding story of your day and will make you remember what’s ultimately most important: how your day FELT.
Since 1998 I’ve shot well over 500 weddings, countless portrait sessions, been published by magazines and blogs that I'm truly proud of and worked with the best of the best in the wedding industry -- I really couldn't imagine doing anything else. So please check out mywork everywhere, and if our vision is in sync I hope to hear from you soon!

A Master of His Craft
When we chose an indoor venue, one of my biggest concerns was finding a photographer to capture our big day, despite the added challenges of artificial lighting. Echard exceeded all of our expectations! We chose a package with an engagement session, and I’m really glad we did! It was the perfect opportunity to get to know Echard. We had so much fun, and we left knowing that our wedding photos were in great hands. In fact, we loved our engagement photos so much, that we added a bridal portrait session! Echard made taking pictures feel effortless and natural, and our photos are spectacular!Sent on 11/16/2019
On top of being an incredible photographer, Echard knows weddings. We relied on him for vendor recommendations, ideas, and advice. Whether it was choosing where to take certain photos or how to incorporate a special moment in our timeline, Echard had a solution. He was always patient, kind, and responsive. We truly can’t recommend him enough!

Echard Wheeler Photography: best wedding decision!
Besides choosing each other, hiring Echard was the single best decision my husband and I made for our Labor Day weekend wedding at Historic Tredegar in Richmond, VA. Starting with meeting him for coffee prior to the wedding weekend and then throughout our entire 9-hour day together, Echard was calming, professional, and brilliant.Sent on 10/04/2019
My husband and I, despite having dated for a decade, had never taken professional photos before and didn’t really know what to expect. Echard immediately put us at ease, encouraged us, and never once felt intrusive. Echard and his lovely wife (who assisted him for part of the day) were a bottomless well of creative ideas for shots. Looking at all the photos a month later (can't beat that turnaround time), we are floored by the volume, quality, and emotions of the images he took. He took all the shots we could've possibly asked for and also surprised us with so many incredible pictures of moments we missed entirely.
Also, you'll spend a lot of time with your photographer on your wedding day, and we couldn't have asked for a more professional or warmer person to be around than Echard. Truly. We will always treasure Echard's gallery of 1500+ images from our wedding and appreciate how much joy and warmth he added to our day. Thank you, Echard!
Echard Wheeler Photography's reply:Liza, you literally made my week!!!!! Working with you two was a true joy. I wish you many many years of love, happiness and good health.

Great photography on our wedding day!
I highly recommend Echard Wheeler as your photographer for your wedding day. I luckily booked Echard in advance as he appeared to be frequently recommended by venues in the area. He was on time and professional. He took beautiful photos that Phill and I are so happy we have to remember our day. You can tell that Echard takes pride in his work. He also gives you online access and a jump drive of the images which he sends to you with lovely packaging. Thank you, Echard, for your talented work to remember our day!Sent on 12/17/2018
Echard Wheeler Photography's reply:Thank you so much Rachel :) Your wedding day was absolutely gorgeous and I am so honored you guys chose me to document the day!
We LOVE having Echard shoot at Lesner Inn! He is the most easy-going person and always rolls with the punches on a wedding day. One of our favorite memories is a wedding that he shot here last summer where it was pouring rain but he still managed to get the most stunning portraits of the bride and groom. Nothing was going to stop him from getting the perfect picture and he will go above and beyond to make sure he gets it. And that's the best quality you could ever want in your wedding photographer!
LIke a silent photo ninja artist, Echard takes pictures, magnificent photos, and you had no idea he was there. I've worked with him at several weddings and his are some of my favorite!! Consider him, he's an expert, and your pictures would be perfect. Love, pastor cory <><
"The Team with Style" just had the pleasure of working with Echard this past weekend at a Norfolk wedding! Echard is sure to capture your special day in an elegant and detailed way! He is always professional and such a joy to work with! We look forward to many more events with Echard Wheeler!
