I cannot say enough GREAT & WONDERFUL things about Edward!! From the start, he was great to work with. He is easy going but incredibly passionate about his work, which shows in his photographer. Our engagement photos were taken downtown Chicago and absolutely wonderful! We had a few places planned but Edward found this alley and we got some amazing impromtu shots. As for the wedding day, he was a blast to work with! It's a long day of pictures, and he made it so enjoyable. Prior to the wedding, we worked out a great timeline, and he was kind enough to scout out some great locations for us at the Morton Arboretum where we were getting married. The whole day went seamlessly, and we took advantage of getting a lot of great photos. Edwards is so creative in finding different shots, and you can be at ease putting your trust in him to get the right shots. Once we get our photos back, I'm sure I'll have even more great things to write. But the few we saw from the back of his camera I was amazed with. Edward also specializes in nature photographer, so if you have an outdoor wedding, he is your guy! I would highly recommend Edward to any bride. You cannot go wrong with him!! I will be using him for photographer again!

Hiring Edward as the photographer for our wedding was one of the easier decisions my wife and I had to make. We met Edward at his house in Naperville and he spoke with us and showed us his some of his work. Unlike other photographers we had met with, Edward showed us all of the photos he had taken for other weddings. He was showing us that anyone can get lucky, take a few good pictures, and make a portfolio to show potential clients. Unlike the other photographers, Edward had nothing to hide. He does wonderful work and he knows it. He isn't cocky about it but has a quiet confidence that you want your photographer to have. He was very flexible and open to suggestions; Edward expressed ideas he liked for us and was very receptive to the ideas we had for him. Rather that just snap random pictures, Edward's pictures created a story of our day. He told my wife and I that our pictures would be done in 4-6 weeks, but probably closer to 6 weeks. They were done in 18 days. He is an extremely hard worker, with a wonderful eye for photography, and has a laid back personality which really helps on a potentially stressful day. If you're even considering Edward as your photographer, consider no more and just say yes, you won't be disappointed.

Choosing Edward Weiland as our photographer was one of the best decisions my husband and I made for our wedding. As a bride, meeting with different photographers and vendors was completely overwhelming and stressful. Hearing complaints from several other friends who chose more “corporate” photographers was frightening while planning our own wedding. Edward made us feel so comfortable during our initial meeting. He has been nothing but wonderful to work with ever since. Our engagement pictures turned out absolutely beautiful – especially given the fact that Edward took them outside… during a tornado warning. Edward created a perfect time schedule for the day, and seeing that time schedule during the time leading up to our wedding was a HUGE stress reliever! He was extremely personable, asking for names of bridal party members well in advance of our day. Having a wedding party of eleven couples, Edward was incredibly patient in setting up pictures, and directing people to where they needed to be with the enormous group. That being said, Edward dealt wonderfully with ALL of the types of personalities he came across throughout the day. We had a great time with him, and laughed so much throughout the day. We are so excited to see our wedding pictures, and so happy that we picked Edward Weiland to capture the moments of the most important day of our lives! We highly recommend him to anyone else planning a wedding!
