Eric Rolph is a Colorado wedding photographer and commercial photographer with 16 years of experience whose commercial clients range from General Electric and Coca-Cola Corporation to Hawaii Magazine and The Royal Order of Kamehameha I.
I believe that exceptional photographs reveal the rare, authentic and enduring qualities of genuine emotional experiences. A safe, comfortable and relaxed photo shoot with lots of engagement where one can be their self, share a connection and have fun is important to my work.
Photographs that last the test of time reveal something more than a beautiful image. Enduring and genuinely spectacular photographs come from layers that reveal depth, looking for evocative moments and showing people relating to each other and their environment. My passion is to turn those qualities into stunning photography meant to be passed on as vivid visual memories for generations.
Born from experience as a commercial, documentary and editorial photographer, my work is based on environmental portraiture using a wide field of view along with the latest in portable studio lighting technology to highlight people in the environmental beauty of Colorado. My technique gives my photographs an expansive three dimensional feeling with gorgeous color tonality — the way colors unify and the quality of light that bathes everything in order to achieve harmony and contrast.
In college I studied behavioral ecology, a branch of anthropology, and documentary filmmaking that led to my early career as a photojournalist for a major metro newspaper. This experience gave me a strong sense of story telling and the ability to capture decisive moments. My photojournalism work opened an opportunity to make documentary films with Harvard anthropologists. There I developed a deep respect for cultural perspectives as well as important techniques in documentary photography and lighting. Later my work was recognized by creative ad agencies and art buyers for my environmental portrait style. In shooting advertising and editorial work I developed an evocative lighting and framing technique using gorgeous environments that made my work stand apart from others. And that lead to my first wedding shoot for an art director who wanted extraordinary wedding photographs for his Maui wedding that avoided cliché. It was a complete thrill. I continue to feel that thrill from directing and producing uniquely beautiful wedding, portrait and commercial photography.
I live for creative innovation in photography and collaborating with my clients to produce photographs that catch your breath and make your friends crazy jealous.

Eric did not do my photos for my wedding, but he did fabulous engagement pictures for us! He was fantastic to work with! I was so worried that my fiancé (now husband) would not be cooperative with the poses that a photographer would make us do, but Eric really worked with his personality and made it enjoyable for him. Eric found us the most gorgeous spot to take pictures at and was even open to ideas, which made him become adventurous with his equipment to climb walls and such to get PRICELESS sunset pictures! I would highly recommend him for all occasions! Eric I would love for you to do my future family photos!Sent on 06/12/2014

If you want to have amazing wedding photos, look no further. Eric was absolutely phenomenal on our wedding day. He was a pleasure to work with and couldn't have captured are day with more beauty. People are consistently envious of our images... I don't know anyone with photos looking as good as ours do... and that says a lot considering I'm a wedding photographer as well!Sent on 07/15/2012
