    Ernst is definitely one of the best choices we made for our wedding

    Ernst was incredible at our wedding and reception. Easily one of the best decisions we made. He's definitely a very good photographer. Getting the very best out of his subjects and can have a lot of fun along the way. We definitely recommend hiring him.

    The best vendor choice you will make

    This will be a very long and detailed review because we could not have been more thrilled with our decision to hire Ernst. I hope that reading about our experience can help other couples come to a decision they feel confident about.

    When I was shopping around for a photographer for my wedding I felt a little overwhelmed. There were many options out there and I know little about photography. After showing a few different galleries to my dad, an amateur photographer, he recommended that I choose Ernst. I am so glad I took his advice.

    Ernst was so understanding with the 3 date changes we had due to covid. He did not charge us any fees or penalties.

    Ernst's services are worth every penny and more, which is amazing when you consider how competitive his prices are. He worked with us to make a time line that fit our needs exactly. He guided us through the planning of our wedding day photos with ease. He explained the entire process and more. He offered us tips that went above and beyond what we expected that helped to make our day run beautifully.

    Ernst showed up early and stayed late. He was so flexible. Even though I ended up being 45 minutes late to our first look, Ernst got us back on schedule while still managing to capture all the photos that we wanted. It was a very hot day, and there was a moment when Ernst dabbed sweat off of someone's forehead with his own sleeve. What dedication to making sure our photos were perfect.

    During the ceremony and reception, Ernst seemed like he was everywhere at once. We had about 125 guests at our wedding, and he made sure that everyone was represented in the photos. Every time I saw him, he was taking a photo. He worked hard the entire time. He was accommodating and receptive to suggestions and requests from guests. He was as professional as could be. He was right there for every special moment. Looking through our gallery I see quite a few photos where he captures the same moment from opposite sides, and I am baffled as to how he pulled some of these shots off.

    I give Ernst the highest of recommendations. I feel confident that anyone who hires him for their wedding day will be in the best of hands. I have heard that working with a photographer can be stressful sometimes, but in our experience, Ernst was a source of calming and organization. He helped our day run smoothly, helped ease a lot of wedding day stress, and provided us well over a thousand wonderful photos. Thank you so, so, much Ernst.

    Our photos are everything we asked for and more.

    Ernst captured the unique story of our pandemic wedding, the true emotion of the day, and created perfectly posed moments. We will treasure his work for a lifetime!
    Ernst is a true pleasure to work with. Our sessions felt very natural and we appreciated his keen eye for detail. He is extremely professional. As the only non-guest at a very small wedding, it would have been easy to stick out, but he blended into the day seamlessly.
    We couldn't be happier with our choice of wedding photographer and highly recommend him!
