We got married on September 2nd at Turf Valley Resort. We first met Eric at a wedding show and then continued to see him at a few other wedding shows. I really did not meet with too many photographers because I got a great first impression after meeting Eric, his work was beautiful, and his pricing was very fair. Eric has clearly been in the business for a long time and has developed a great reputation. I asked my coordinator at Turf Valley if she know Eric and what she thought of his work—she spoke very highly of Eric! On a related note, Eric knows a lot of other professionals in the wedding business who he was able to recommend. I trusted Eric and felt that if he vetted them, they would do good work. He recommended a beautiful cello and flute musicians for our ceremony and cocktail hour—they were awesome! He also recommended our videographer. Although we only got a sneak peek video so far, we are very impressed! Eric worked very well with our families, bridal party, and other vendors. Eric answered all of our questions prior to the engagement photo shoot and wedding. He made sure to have our day of schedule and photo list with him. He was also very flexible to me wanted to reschedule our engagement photos a few times due to weather. He is very professional and quick to respond—he even set up a phone call with me to help me make a day of time line. We got our engagement photos back just a few days after and our wedding photos about a week later. This is NOT A NEGATIVE REFLECTION OF ERIC, but I do have a tip for future brides—we had 175 guests at our wedding and a large bridal party; if you have a similar situation, you may want to consider hiring Eric for extra hours or hiring a second shooter. He worked extremely hard within the timelines we set up and Eric got amazing pictures and captured wonderful memories of our day, I just wish I had thought to hire him for longer or with another photographer. We would enthusiastically recommend Eric for any event!
After being a part of multiple weddings and dealing with different photographers, Eric is a cut above the rest. He made us feel comfortable and relaxed during the photo shoot, while also providing us with great direction. He was flexible and always made himself available. The shots we got from our shoot were incredible. He comes with my highest recommendation and is the photographer you need to hire for your next event. Thanks again Eric, we loved working with you!
Hey there Eric,
Thank you for sending the link to the photo gallery! We really appreciate your quick turnaround. Andrea and I spent a good part of the day yesterday looking through the pictures, and we are so pleased with the results!
We want to take the time to express our gratitude and thanks for all you did on our special day. We loved your approach and skill in photographing the event, and look forward to enjoying these photos for years to come.
All the best,
Andrew and Andrea Vanderwagen
We could not have dreamed for a better photographer!! Eric and his assistant were both so kind, helpful and fun! Their attention to detail, creativity in photos, and knowledge of the "wedding world" is impeccable. They were both incredibly personable and blended in with the guests, but also remained very professional. Absolutely wonderful!!!
Eric was a wonderful photographer! He was helpful in answering all of questions prior to our wedding. He was on time and ready to capture the important moments of our day. He blended into the background during our ceremony and captured the most beautiful images. He was very accommodating and captured all the bridal portraits we desired after our ceremony. Our photos were available for us to view ahead of schedule with a link we were able to share with friends and family to order their own photos.
Thank you Eric for capturing all those important moments. The photos are beautiful!!!!!!!!
Eric and his team were wonderful. The photos were absolutely stunning, and the Album at the end is top notch. I will hire him for sure the next time i have a need for professional photographs.
Absolutely AMAZING - the BEST!!
Eric Stocklin photograph was wonderful! Eric was very patient with both the bride and groom and both their families. He was on time, communicated well, and really captured some wonderful moments during our wedding and during the reception.
Choosing Eric Stocklin as our wedding photographer was a fantastic decision! He was so available and responsive through personal meetings, phone calls and emails. He really made Jamie and I feel like celebrities, photographing every special moment of the day. It was really nice to get an understanding of Eric's photography style through an engagement photo shoot early on our engagement. He was flexible, patient and accommodating to all of our photograph requests during the big day. What is the most amazing of all is the speed in which James and I received the proofs from our wedding. When we signed on he talked about seeing our photos during our honeymoon and he followed through! It was a real comforting experience to have all the photos available to us a week later. We highly recommend Eric Stocklin as your wedding photographer!
We don't live in Baltimore so flexibility was very important to us when choosing our photographer. Eric met with us to review his packages, he customized a package to fit our needs and immediately shot our engagement photo session without pressuring us to sign a contract with him.
I used to work in the event industry and Eric has always had a great reputation for his professionalism and his talent. Working first hand with him was a pleasure for myself, my husband and my guests. So many people commented how nice and attentive Eric and his assistant Kat were. Eric sent us our pictures two days later and he captured so many great moments of my guests arriving to the church, mingling at cocktail hour and all of the moments we couldn't be there for as I was getting ready, taking pictures after the ceremony, etc. Your wedding day will fly by and Eric made sure to take my picture wish list and he worked with the D.J. to call guests up to make sure all of the photos were taken. I cannot recommend Eric and his team enough!
We've now received our photo package, including our wedding album, and are so pleased with the results! Eric's authentic eye has given us many special images of our wedding day and of our favorite people. He has a natural artistry that drew us to him in the first place, and it showed wonderfully in our wedding photos. It was a rainy day, and I was worried about lighting, but Eric pulled off some amazing photos. He made sure to get everyone in action, and he truly does move through the crowd without making himself noticeable. Thanks, Eric, for beautifully capturing our wedding day!
Eric was amazing start to finish. He really wanted to make sure I had everything I wanted exactly the way I wanted it.
He is timely with getting you photos and is able to capure the true essence of the moment with them.
I would recommend him for any event!
Thank you Eric for capturing moments on one of the best day of my life :)
Eric was very responsive from the first conversation we had with him well over a year before our wedding. We ran into him a number of times in between and he was helpful with advice on other vendors. We were able to snag a limited time special promotion, which was great although in retrospect we should have chosen the highest tiered option with the most benefits. Eric and Anna, the second photographer, were amazing on the day of the wedding, very expedient in setting up shots so we were able to get a lot of different setups. Of course, there were a few shots we didn't think to get during all the craziness on the day of, so I recommend making a list of any shots that you would definitely want to get so that time is allotted for them. Also, I wish he had better used his second photographer early on in the day because we did not get any before pictures of the groom/groomsmen or guests arriving at the church.
It was an honor and a true pleasure to work with Eric Stocklin on our wedding day. We met Eric at a small (read: calm/not daunting) wedding expo. Eric was such a delight to talk to and given the nature of the expo, we actually had the chance to chat and become acquainted.
Several things struck us about Eric - he is incredibly down-to-earth, genuine, approachable, and friendly. When looking at some samples of his work, we quickly realized how talented he is! We were fortunate, as Eric had our wedding date available, and so we booked! Easy decision!
During the planning process, my husband and I experienced an unexpected loss of a beloved family member. In response to this, Eric was sympathetic, flexible, and truly committed to accommodating us in every way possible. He focused on our wishes and he was open to any changes we requested given the circumstances. We appreciated Eric's sincerity, compassion, professionalism, and understanding.
Eric's work and presence on our wedding day was characterized as unobtrusive and fiercely dedicated to capturing every single important moment. He was everywhere; yet nowhere -- meaning, he captured every image we could have ever asked for, yet did this is the most professional and inconspicuous manner. We joked that Eric is like a silent photo ninja. He is incredible!!
My husband and I did not want to miss our entire cocktail hour and we also did not want to do a first look. These circumstances could make it challenging for a photographer to get all of the important pictures given the time limitations we were imposing, but not Eric!! He captured all of the important family and bridal party pictures after the ceremony and still gave us plenty of time to make it to our cocktail hour.
Eric is truly talented and an exceptional photographer. He is responsive, efficient, and has an amazing personality! He sent our wedding pictures to us quickly and we have over 17 pages of outstanding images from our wedding. THANK YOU ERIC!
We met Eric at a vendor fair in the Baltimore area. The photographer the fair venue hired did not show- Eric took it upon himself to volunteer to photograph the fashion show at the fair. Even though he was now working a "surprise" job at this fair, he appeared from our consumer's prospective to be completely calm and having fun! When he came back to his booth later in the fair, he picked right up where he left off meeting and greeting guests at the fair. This was one of our amazing impressions of not only Eric's professionalism but his personality as well!
When we began speaking with him, Eric was calm and knowledgeable, and I, as the bride, did not feel pressured in any way- this was a very unique experience as all the other vendors were very pressuring with booking them that day since I had so "little" time left (4 months...).
We met with Eric a couple weeks later and he spent a lot of time with us as a couple, getting to know us and what we did and did not want. He tailored his photography packages to fit our needs, not his. The value with his company is fantastic. Eric contacted our wedding planner to arrange a meeting to go and see our venue on his own time since he had been there before.
On the day of our wedding, Eric and Julie arrived early, and did an amazing job being professional and flexible with our events, personalities, and timeline! We even accidentally threw him a curve ball last minute and hired a videographer when we decided we really would like to have a video of our wedding as well. Eric contacted the videographer and the day of our wedding everyone worked together so well and was very professional.
I would highly recommend Eric Stocklin Photography!
Eric was an amazing photographer who managed to capture all of the special moments of our wedding and ceremony despite an exhaustive list of shots I had requested. Eric even had all of photos ready for viewing online within a week after the wedding! Very Fast!!
Of all of my vendors, Eric was hands down the easiest to work with. He did our engagement photos and made my husband who literally would have wanted to do anything else that day totally comfortable. Those photos came out great and we used him for the wedding as well. I didn't give him much direction aside from a list of the formal portraits with bridal party that I wanted and just let him do his thing and the photos turned out great. He seems to specialize in the candid moments. His assistant was fantastic too, and I think took a lot of the detail shots of the rings etc. He is unbelievably fast with all of the post wedding stuff, the DVD of our pics was waiting for us when we got back from our honeymoon, and the only delay on getting the album together was on my end. The album was fantastic too. I also think his prices are pretty reasonable for the level of skill he has.
Eric was fabulous!! He came early to take pictures of the church and outside the reception. He was very prompt in getting us our pictures back. Professional and skilled just what I was looking for in a photographer. He took so many pictures!! Caught every moment. I am so thankful we chose Eric Stocklin!
Ahh well I am absolutely obsessed with my wedding pictures!!! Eric and Mike caught every moment from getting dressed, the gowns, the groom with his gentlemen, every family member, the flowers, the decorations, every moment of my ceremony and every moment I witnessed and missed throughout the reception! Really there is not one more shot that I could have asked for. Eric not only was able to capture every special moment that I requested, but also went above and beyond with his creativity and talent! Now I am able to look back and relive the fantastic evening picture by picture :). I highly recommend Eric for any and every occasion you would like to capture - without a doubt you will spend hours and hours just taking in every candid shot smiling the entire time.
If I could give Eric a score higher than 5 stars, I would! We have three kids (ages 5, 5 and 7) and we challenged him to capture moments that would celebrate the wedding and our family, and he did just that! He was so easy to work with and was able to strike just the right balance between getting us in places were he knew would be great pictures and letting us go to capture candid shots with friends and family. He was so creative in his posed shots at the Cloister's Castle that the pictures were incredible! While dancing with family and friends, every time I wanted to capture that moment, he was there. I never once had to look for him to capture a memorable photo! He arrived earlier than he planned and stayed much later than the contract required him to stay. He delivered the link to our pictures within the time he stated and we could not be happier with how he staged the photos and captured all the significant moments of the ceremony. Every single guest at our wedding was included in the photos. If we had it to do all over again, we would definitely use Eric.
Eric was the photographer for my daughter's wedding and it was phenomenal! He took the time to meet with us beforehand and to understand exactly what she wanted as well as offering suggestions that she hadnt thought of. He arrived on the day exactly on time with his assistant and the results are phenomenal! And the best part of all was that Eric and his assistant moved around during the wedding and no one noticed they were there! That is exactly what an excellent photographer should do and everyone remarked on how nice they were. He was able to get a lot of the "formal" shots before the ceremony (at my daughter's request) so that she was able to really enjoy her day! Great Job!!!
Eric did a beautiful job capturing the whole event. The posed pictures were beautiful, and the candid ones were amazing. He has a true talent and is wonderful to work with. Professional, timely, helpful, and one of the best photographers I have had the pleasure of working with! Finally, we ordered a photo book, and Eric did an exquisite job. It still moves me to tears!
I worked with Eric in the journalism field, so I knew his work and how easy he was to work with. He brings a journalist's mindset to the job, so the candid shots and the times when he takes photos and you don't even realize it are all incredible. He is great at capturing emotion and tells the story of our wedding day perfectly in our album.
There were a few times when Eric didn't readily to respond to emails but he would get back to us and I never worried. He's also very flexible; we did two revisions to our album before getting the final copy.
As others have said, take him up on his offer and give him a list of things you want shot for the wedding. He and his assistant will take whatever it is you ask of him.
Best of all, while we took a lot of photos, it didn't feel like our whole wedding day was us posing. We were able to really enjoy everything and now we have photos we will treasure forever.
Eric was very nice to work with leading up to the wedding and he was very prompt getting us the pictures after the wedding. However, I did have some frustrations with the service that was provided on the day of my wedding. I paid for two photographers; Eric and one of his associates. I was assured that by doing this, one photographer would always be with me on the wedding day, and one would be available for other photos of guests, scenery, etc. There were many occasions throughout my wedding day that either the event coordinator or one of my bridesmaids would have to stop and go find a photographer because there was something going on that should not be missed.
The candid photos that were taken were wonderful… and the main reason that I chose him was because he said that was his strength. Leading up to the wedding he encouraged me to make a list of photos that I really wanted. I did not do this and I wish I had; I take full responsibility for not having any photos that I really wanted. But I also felt that some photos are “standard” for a photographer to take: Pictures of the rings, the bride and grooms special toasting glasses, an engraved cake knife, pictures of the bride with her mom… So I recommend Eric but with some reservations.
We chose Eric to be our photographer when we saw him at a wedding expo. His photos weren't all posed; the best were downright artistic. He will do the posed shots, but it's the more natural, candid shots he gets that sets him apart. Talking to him was great, he was always friendly and professional. He helped explain our options and talked with us about our timeline for the wedding day. During the event, he directed guests for the needed posed shots, but remained unintrusive for the rest. He was also quick to help with things like the wedding dress's train when we needed it, and he really blew me away when he produced a bottle opener for some sparkling cider we had. He took any extra photos we asked for, he seemed to love shooting us in the outdoor settings we'd picked out and, best of all, the photos came out great. He took hundreds of beautiful photos and we had such a hard time narrowing down our favorites for the album he created that we ended up upgrading to a much larger album!
