Erci is the best!
When we first Eric he was very friendly, however, we then figured out that He genuinely cares about the happiness of the couple more than anything else! He became an amazing friend. Eric made us feel like we were the only couple that matter to him, even though he was extremely busy. He did not hesitate to answer all of our questions whenever we bugged him. Even making the long trip out to meet us each and every time we asked. Eric is a genuinely amazing person, photographer, and all-around human being. We wish we can have our wedding again just to have Eric be our photographer again. He made our wedding fun and lively! Thank you so much Eric!!!Sent on 07/18/2019
Eric Vest Photography, Inc.'s reply:Yes!!! You do your wedding again and I'll be there! :) What a total blast we had! I can think of so many moments on your day where we were laughing so hard our faces hurt! Thank you two for being incredible people! From your engagement session, to your wedding, to our coffee dates to catch up after your wedding - I have loved and continue to love every moment with you guys!

Eric Vest is Truly the Best!
If you are looking for the most professional, kind, organized, and talented wedding photographer out there, look no further than Eric Vest-electing to work with Eric was the best choice we made throughout our engagement and the process of planning our wedding (and there were quite a few choices to be made!) From planning our engagment photo shoot, to taking the time to talk to me for an hour on the phone to walk through every moment of our day, to the incredibly easy-to-access photo galleries and detailed information about the download process, to the just DOWNRIGHT GORGEOUS photographs that we will treasure forever, Eric was absolutely perfect to work with in every aspect. We are over the moon satisfied with both our engagement and wedding photos-looking back at them makes us feel like Eric captured every single important moment of the day-he didn't miss one thing! Our family and friends have been so impressed with how the final photos reflected the spirit of our event and our unique selves. We had a perfect day (truly!) and we are so thankful that we chose Eric Vest to be apart of it. I would recommend Eric to anyone looking for a photographer that is not only talented, but is a joy to work with, too.Sent on 08/21/2019
Eric Vest Photography, Inc.'s reply:You two are seriously gems! Thank you a million times over for your kind, heartfelt words! To hear you see and feel the spirit of your wedding and your unique selves in your photos makes me so happy! You guys made it easy to capture your beautiful relationship and your amazing personalities! So blessed by you both!

You will not be disappointed with Eric!!
Eric was personable, professional, and brought a level of energy and joy to the day that was amazing! We absolutely loved having him! He did our engagement photographs as well and made it feel so comfortable and natural for us. Both the wedding pictures and engagement pictures turned out so goodSent on 10/21/2019

Above and Beyond All Expectation
Five stars is certainly not enough for Eric! From day one, Eric made us laugh...were not the biggest fans of taking photos however he made it super easy. If you’re looking for a photographer who makes you feel extremely comfortable while also getting you to joke around....Eric is your guy! Our wedding day was perfect and I know our photos will be just as amazing because of Eric. Thank you so much!Sent on 04/25/2019
Eric Vest Photography, Inc.'s reply:We had SO much fun!!! Thank you for your super kind words Kenyah - you guys rock! Dying to show you all of your wedding photos soon!

Look no further! Eric is the best!
Honestly, If we could give Eric 100 stars we would! Not only is work amazing, he is just an absolute joy to be around. I knew from when we met him for coffee that he was who I wanted by our side all day. With his contagious smile, he gives off so much positive energy that we knew we would love to have on our wedding day to keep things lighthearted and fun.Sent on 03/24/2019
Eric was so thorough at our engagement session! It was a very hot summer day and he spent nearly three hours with us, getting amazing shots. He made us so comfortable and it was great to build that relationship and get to know each other before the wedding.
Leading up to our wedding day, Eric was soooo helpful with determining the timeline for our day. We had a phone conversation with him a few weeks before the wedding that really helped me to envision the flow of our day. When it came to our wedding day, Eric was simply amazing. Of course he was our photographer, but he also did a great job keeping the day running smoothly and on time. He fixed my hair when it was out of place, totally embraced our January wedding, and we received NUMEROUS comments from our wedding party and guests about how awesome our photographer was. He showed us a few shots on his camera that day and I knew I was going to be blown away by the images. They turned out to go even beyond my expectations. He captured every thoughtful detail that we put into our day and we have so many amazing photos of us as a couple as well as our wedding party. He truly captured the feel of our special day and I especially loved our night shots. It was so great to take a few moments to step away from the celebration, take it all in, and we ended up getting some of our favorite shots of the day.
I would absolutely recommend Eric Vest Photography. In fact, he will be shooting my cousin's wedding in June 2019 and I am so exited. He is so talented, personal, and we have truly made a friendship with Eric. He's amazing! :)
Eric Vest Photography, Inc.'s reply:I was so honored to be by you and Charlie's sides all day Dani!!! Thank you for your incredibly kind words! Super glad a friendship with you both came out of this amazing experience and I just smile when I think back on the memories we've already made!!! Keep being the rockstar couple that you two are!!!

Best Photographer Ever!
Please look no further for a wedding photographer - Eric was talented, professional, kind, and shared in our vision for the big day. We met with other photographers before meeting him but didn't click with them as we did with Eric! His work is impeccable but even more importantly, he was a pleasure to work with. Eric kept me and my husband feeling comfortable throughout the engagement photo session and our wedding day.Sent on 01/21/2019
Eric also has a lot of experience putting together wedding timelines and answering detailed questions about the day, so we depended on Eric for help in those areas as well. He always has a great attitude. My husband and I not only had a great photographer for our wedding day but also made a good friend. Eric went above and beyond our expectations in every way. Thank you, Eric, for your dedication, professionalism, and positive attitude.
Eric Vest Photography, Inc.'s reply:Kristin & Matt! It was my joy to be part of your amazing day! Thank you for including me! Wow did we have fun! So many awesome memories from your winter engagement session in Duluth to your gorgeous winter wedding! So glad to call you both friends now!

Brittany · Married on 10/11/2018
Truly an incredible experience!!
Eric had shot 2 of our friends’ weddings before we even got engaged. After working with him those 2 times, it was an automatic choice to pick him to photograph our wedding once the time came! He was truly incredible to work with!! He was always prompt in answering our questions and had great ideas and inspiration to each photo he took. Working with Eric, it felt like we had known each other for years. Our pictures turned out so amazing. I couldn’t imagine having picked a better photographer!!Sent on 07/18/2019
Eric Vest Photography, Inc.'s reply:I was so excited when you told me you were getting married Brittany! I knew it would be so much fun to work with you and Shelby and it was even better than I dreamed! You guys are sweethearts and I'm so grateful to have been able to be part of your day!

If you are looking for a down to earth, kind, fun, talented wedding photographer - look no further. Eric was so great to work with from start to finish. His energy and positive attitude are contagious. He was very professional, organized, and responsive. We are in love with how our engagement and wedding photos turned out! He kept us very calm and made sure everyone had a great wedding day. Our bridal party and our other vendors and guests all commented on how great Eric was/is to work with. We were so lucky to find him! SERIOUSLY HIRE ERIC AS YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER!! Thank you Eric :)Sent on 10/25/2018

Nicole · Married on 09/07/2018
Eric did an awesome job! He kept us on schedule and was so organized that we didn’t have anything to worry about! We had a few issues with a guy missing a tie and one had the wrong shirt size and Eric rearranged the schedule so we fit all our pictures in and it wasn’t stressful! He is so easy to work with and so fun!Sent on 09/21/2018

Eric was such a joy to work with for our engagement session, wedding day, and photo booth! He even made my husband excited to take photos! We really appreciate that he came to Chicago for our engagement shoot — it was such a fun day! Our photos turned out amazing and we can’t wait to see Eric again!Sent on 09/25/2018

Brittany · Married on 08/11/2018
Eric is honestly such an amazing photographer. From our engagement shoot to our wedding, Eric was professional and fun. He has great vision for awesome photographs and we have gotten SO MANY compliments on how great he was to work with and how beautiful our photos are. He took the time to remember names of our wedding party and made our whole wedding day wonderful. His personality and love for what he does truly makes the photography AWESOME. I would not go with anyone else for my wedding photos and his prices are affordable and totally worth it! THANK YOU SO MUCH ERIC! :)Sent on 08/27/2018
Eric Vest Photography, Inc.'s reply:You guys are downright awesome Brittany & Jack! Your wedding day was truly a day to remember! From your engagement session to your wedding day - loved each second with both of you!!!
Jean Champagne · Married on 07/28/2018
Fun & professional!
Eric made the entire process easy, which was exactly what I needed. From the beginning, the communication was quick, clear and efficient! Eric came with us to look at the venue and meet the family weeks ahead of the wedding, which was such a kind gesture, over the top! (Everyone loves him by the way - family, venue staff, etc). I wanted to push the limits a bit with some of our photos, as my husband is an adrenaline junkie, and Eric made it all happen! Throwing couches in the air, climbing trees, etc. We also had a special request of setting up a photo booth in our vintage Airstream trailer. Eric made it happen! The pictures, because of course that is what you care about and can actually hold on to, are BREATHTAKING! See for yourself. I would choose Eric over and over again, and recommend to anyone who wants stunning wedding photos from a fun, professional wedding photographer.Sent on 07/18/2019
Eric Vest Photography, Inc.'s reply:Oh what a joy to get to know you, Kirk, and your amazing family through this whole process! We did some crazy fun things on your day Jean! You two were a total blast to work with and I'd do it again in a heartbeat! Thank you for your kind words!
Kayla · Married on 07/07/2018
Eric is an amazing photographer! There are simply not enough words to describe our experience. At our engagement photo shoot we quickly learned that Eric is one of those people that has a joyful and infectious personality, it’s hard not to laugh and smile when you are working with him. He loves his work and shows that by how genuinely excited he was to capture our story. I received so many complements at our wedding on how organized and helpful he was. He is able to engage people he photographs and yet make you feel incredibly comfortable. Eric is the upmost professional and the gold standard. His work is OUTSTANDING! I have shown photos to several people who have said his work/wedding photos are the best they have seen. I completely agree. He captured so many precious moments (I would have otherwise missed) that I get to relive because he is so good at what he does. I could not have asked for higher quality photographer because I am certain it doesn’t exist.Sent on 08/05/2018
Eric Vest Photography, Inc.'s reply:You guys rock! My time with you guys couldn't have been more incredible! So many hilarious and special memories with you two! I smile when I think about you guys! Can't wait to keep in touch Kayla & Nathan!

Best decision ever!
Eric is an incredible photographer! We could not be more happy with the quality of the photos we received for our engagement and from our special day. Beyond that, Eric himself is an amazing person to work with. He is responsive to questions and ideas before the event and even better the day of. He was a source of calm on what can be a crazy stressful day. He helped our DJ with our timeline and made sure to be there for every important moment. He even helped bussel my dress! We received our pictures very quickly as well which was great! If you want amazing photos that capture every moment of your special day and an amazing person (Eric) to work with them you need to hire Eric Vest Photography!Sent on 07/18/2019
Eric Vest Photography, Inc.'s reply:Abby! You and Aaron were such a dream to work with! Your day was absolutely perfection and you had so many amazing details and amazing moments alike! Thank you for allowing me to be there to capture it for you guys!
Jenna · Married on 06/01/2018
This man is a GIFT to his profession! I am a type-A bride who spent hours and hours and hours pouring over thousands of reviews and conducting lots of interviews in order to assemble a team of 5-star wedding vendors. And after 18 months of intensive planning and working with some incredibly talented and dedicated people, I can still say without even hesitating that hiring Eric Vest was THE SINGLE BEST decision I made for my wedding!! From the first email Eric sends you, you will be able to recognize his energy and his kindness. He is not only the kindest wedding vendor I worked with; he is also one of the kindest people I have ever met. But it’s also essential to mention how exceptionally organized, professional, dedicated, and talented he is as a photographer. He always responded immediately, warmly, and thoroughly to my zillion emails, and he offered tips and advice that were super helpful. When he did our engagement shoot at Boom Island in September, the photos blew us away, and his personality was so infectious that even my (now) husband who hates getting his photo taken had a blast during the shoot. So we knew we were in great hands when our wedding day rolled around this June, and sure enough, the photos are sensational and surpassed our already exceptionally high expectations for Eric’s work. Everyone in our wedding party and immediate family adored Eric, and appreciated his warm and energetic presence. His second shooter, Nikole, was also very kind and did an excellent job. I highly recommend hiring a second photographer as it is well worth the money. But, most importantly, MAKE SURE YOU HIRE ERIC VEST! Hiring Eric is the FIRST piece of advice I would give ANY couple planning a wedding!!Sent on 07/18/2018
Eric Vest Photography, Inc.'s reply:Jenna! You are SO very kind!!! I loved each and every moment with you and Matt and I am so thankful I was able to celebrate these special moments with the two of you (and your incredible families & bridal party!)! Thanks for being amazing and I can't wait to keep in touch with you two as you continue on this journey together!

Eric should be your photographer!
Stop your searching - Eric is who you want for your photographer!! We cannot say enough good things about the whole process with Eric - from the planning ahead of time (so nice to have an expert in the industry to help you make your timeline and bounce ideas off!) to the day of details and photos to the finished product afterwards! Eric is extremely professional, personable, and a wonderful presence to have on your wedding day! I am not exaggerating when I say, we loved every photo! If you hire Eric, you’re not only getting quality photography, but you’re getting to work with an excellent person! Win - win!Sent on 11/02/2018

Kirollos · Married on 10/28/2017
We used Eric as our photographer and utilized his “I Do Booth” photobooth service. We cannot express the amazing work and personality of Eric! Eric was the best choice we made for our wedding. From the day we first met and throughout our wedding, Eric was such a positive person to work with. The time we spent together during our engagement session was a blast and we instantly knew that Eric was going to be the perfect person to work with on our wedding day. His eye for photos, scenes, and ideas are unparalleled. Our guests loved his presence and had so many positive comments about how pleasant he was! We signed up for a photographer and ended up with an amazing friend. We loved every experience with Eric and his work is by far one of the best in the Twin Cities. He is great with communication and will go out of his way to make his clients happy. He truly loves what he does and it evident in his work and demeanor. There is not a single negative thing we can think of having worked with Eric. The “I Do Booth” photos were also amazing! Our guests had printouts, had a blast, and the personnel were so friendly. Our photobooth had a line the entire night. They had fun props and many backdrop options. Most importantly, the quality of the photos was amazing, and we have physical copies of all the photos and an electronic version. Eric Vest and the “I Do Booth” would be our choices if we had to do it all over again! Thank you for everything Eric! You made our day PERFECT.Sent on 01/08/2018

Eric is by far our favorite photographer in the Twin Cities and believe us we interviewed many!
My husband and I had looked into many photographers for our wedding! We were trying to capture a flexible but classy photo journal of the day as our wedding was victorian themed and rather large. But were having a hard time finding a photographer that would work with us/for us. After contacting Eric we knew he was it after interviewing so many other "5 star" photographers. We are soooooo happy that we were blessed to get his skill to capture our day! His photography is beautiful and he had an amazing way of capturing some of the most special moments. He really got into the theme of our wedding as much as us too and seemed to know exactly what we wanted. Us, the wedding party and guests loved working with him and his organizational skills for a large wedding party (18 we had) were amazing. The photos are absolutely gorgeous and creative! We still get so many compliments on them when people see them! Eric is by far our favorite photographer in the Twin Cities and believe us we interviewed many! We will be forever grateful for his excellent million star photography that captured so beautifully, our happiest day!Read LessSent on 10/22/2018

I am so thankful that I found Eric for our October 2017 wedding! First of all, his photography style is absolutely gorgeous - crisp, clear, genuine, and classic without being stuffy. Secondly, he is a DREAM to work with. Punctual, polite, professional, and kind...he's the best. He even made time to meet with my mom when she was in town, and answered her many questions with patience and kindness. With Eric behind the lens during our engagement photos and wedding day, I felt SO comfortable and so did my husband. He not only makes you look good in photos, he makes you feel happy while he's taking them. This in turn leads to some fantastic, natural shots. Your photographer influences a lot about your wedding day - with Eric, I can guarantee you will be relaxed, on schedule, and having a blast. I am recommending Eric to anyone who will listen, and I look forward to continuing our friendship with him!Sent on 01/29/2018
Eric Vest Photography, Inc.'s reply:You guys are beyond awesome! I'm humbled and honored by your words! It was such a joy to be part of your day and love thinking back to the many many amazing memories from your perfect day! So glad you have you both as friends now!

Eric and his crew were amazing! We used them for our wedding in Sept 2017 for Photography and the I Do Booth - Photo Booth. Eric was SOOOO assuring that he was going to help my wedding day go smoothly! My husband and I could not have been more impressed. Our pictures we got back exceeded our expectations. The photo booth was a highlight for our guests! Eric was super responsive, understanding, and accommodating. We hope to be able to use him for future work!Sent on 03/25/2018
