Eric Vest is an absolute gem! When I first came across his website, I immediately fell in love with the style of his photography. I was sold when I discovered a whole page on his site that is completely devoted to military couples (my husband is in the Army). I knew that he was the one vendor that I could not live without, and he did not disappoint! Eric is one of the most enthusiastic, highly passionate, and incredibly kind people I have ever met. His creative mind when it comes to photography is out of this world, and he has so much fun doing his thing! He is really relaxed and easy to work with. For one set price, he will travel to your location and stay there on your wedding day for however long you need him to be there to capture all the special moments. I am a little sad that I do not get to work with him anymore now that my wedding is over, but I will tell anyone who will listen how fantastic he is! And did I mention that his photographs are stunning?Sent on 08/24/2016

Eric was absolutely fantastic. From the first time we met with him (which happened to be a year and a half prior to the big day) we knew immediately that he was going to be the perfect fit for us. He made us feel comfortable throughout the entire process, which was important to us. His work is incredible and he knew exactly how to capture who my husband and i were all about. Eric was simply amazing from the first time we sat down with him to talk about who we are and what we wanted from a photographer. He had lot of ideas about what he could do but also listened to what we wanted him to capture. He had a ton of fun ideas and made us laugh and put us at ease from the first click of his camera. Actually the first picture he took of us, ended up being one of our favorites from our engagement session. Prior to the wedding, he sat down with us twice to talk about details, helped us set up a schedule for the day, and answered all of our questions. He obviously has a wealth of experience and knowledge and was professional and insightful throughout the planning. The day of our wedding, we was simply amazing. The day went by SOOOOO fast and he captured every moment, even things we may have overlooked. Our wedding photos turned out simply stunning and we could not be happier! We were overly eager to see our photos and when he posted the sneak peek we knew we had made the perfect decision. Less than a month from our day, we got the email that we were waiting for. EVERYONE absolutely loves everything he captured. The photos completely exceeded our expectations in more ways than we thought possible. Eric is extremely talented and is simply an amazing photographer. He has such a passion for his job and it shows 100%, his love for his family and the work he does it amazing. He was one of the best professional wedding decisions we made. We went into the process hiring a photographer and ended with much more, a friend for years to come. Thank you Eric for all you did for us.Sent on 09/20/2016

Eric Vest is a passionate and talented photographer and a compassionate and caring person. The time we've spent with Eric has always been filled with laughter and smiles. He has an infectious personality that lights up any room he's in and has an incredible ability to make you feel as if you've known him your whole life. He made us feel comfortable during our engagement sessions and especially on our wedding day. He was fantastic at organizing our wedding party and families for photos and he managed to capture so much emotion. We have amazing memories to look back on, and it's all thanks to Eric. He somehow was always at the right place at the right time to capture the best moments. We are so thankful to have met him. He is not only our wedding photographer, but has become a great friend.Sent on 02/08/2017

Megan · Married on 07/02/2016
Eric was absolutely amazing! Right after I got engaged I reached out to 10 different photographers in the Twin Cities area. Eric was the only one who personally called me after receiving my web inquiry. The thing that impressed me most is he genuinely wanted to get to know us as people before asking more business type questions. His passion for love and photography is evident in his work. He dedicates the entire wedding day to you so you don't have to worry about how many hours or photos are in a certain package. I wanted to find a photographer who captured candid moments between my husband and I. Eric does just that! He is all about having fun! We continue to get compliments from family members and friends about how professional yet personal Eric was. I can't say enough GREAT things! Thank you Eric!!Sent on 08/05/2016
Eric Vest Photography, Inc.'s reply:Thank you Megan! You are so kind! I had so much fun with you guys on your big day! Everything was perfect!!! Thanks for including me! You and James rock!!!
Michele · Married on 06/11/2016
Eric is absolutely amazing!!! My husband and I had both our engagement photos and wedding photos done by Eric! I knew I wanted to work with Eric the moment I saw his pictures online. He has an amazing eye for detail and I couldn't wait for my phone consultation. As I was talking to him, I was blown away by his kindness and charisma!! I instantly felt like we were old friends catching up! I am was SO happy he had my wedding day open and he was very flexible when scheduling my engagement photos in MN since we live out of state. He always responded promptly to emails and was willing to answer any question! He also had a consultation near my wedding day to ensure he had an accurate time line and was aware of all the photos I would like!Sent on 02/08/2017
Throughout my wedding day, he helped out in any way he could, kept us on schedule, and made taking photos stress free! He is so creative, capturing such unique and meaningful photos, and people constantly compliment me on them. He had the ability to capture the whole day, and I am so grateful I can relive it through his photos. As my family and I look back at my wedding day, Eric truly stands out as one of the greatest assets! I will never use another professional photographer again!! :) He is so passionate about his work and I would HIGHLY recommend him for any occasion!! Thank you so much Eric and I would LOVE to work with you again in the future!
Eric Vest Photography, Inc.'s reply:You're awesome Michele! Your day was fabulous from start to finish and you and Andrew were so much fun to be with!

Eric was the best to work with! I'm usually really uncomfortable in front of cameras but he made my day so much fun!

We LOVED working with Eric! We received so many compliments on how friendly and kind he was from our wedding party.

Kallie · Married on 08/21/2015
Eric was AWESOME and does AMAZING work! My husband and I have been married for a few months now. We live in WI and got married in MN where our family and friends live. My husband and I wanted to take our engagement photos where we got engaged and Eric was more than willing to make the drive out to WI to do just that! It was pouring rain the day of our engagement photos, but we were up for anything and so was Eric. By the end of the session, we were soaked from head to toe but the memories we made are priceless and the photos turned out AMAZING! Eric made himself available for any questions and when wedding day got close, I couldn't meet with him in person so we found an alternative way to communicate with video chat. Wedding Day: Eric was there bright and early ready to capture every special moment. He stayed until he knew both my husband and I were happy and there was nothing else we needed/wanted to capture. Eric did an amazing job and our photos are BEAUTIFUL!! I highly recommend him to anyone and cannot wait to use him in the future!! THANK YOU ERIC!!Sent on 02/10/2016
Eric Vest Photography, Inc.'s reply:Kallie, you and Brandon are seriously awesome from head to toe! Every moment with you guys was crazy fun!!! Thanks for being such a blast! I had so much fun documenting your love story!

The first time we met with Eric, his fun and laid back personality helped me know that he was the photographer I wanted for my engagement and wedding photos. Eric has so many creative photography ideas, but at the same time he really listened to what types of pictures my husband and I wanted. On our wedding day, Eric was there from early morning to late at night, and he captured every amazing moment possible. My wedding party loved working with him, we had so much fun! Now that I have my wedding photos back, I can honestly say that I couldn't have hoped for anything more. I trusted Eric to be there on our special day and to really take photos that would allow us to remember the day forever, and he delivered. Looking through our wedding photos was like reliving our wedding day. I loved every moment.Sent on 09/19/2015

I wish I could give Eric Vest Photography more than five stars in every category! He is absolutely outstanding and worth every penny spent. I received so many compliments from friends, family and the bridal party throughout our wedding day on how great our photographers was. Everybody LOVED Eric. He has a way of making the photos throughout the day feel relaxed and fun for everybody. Not only this but we were blown away by the photos received. I just finished making my wedding album and it was incredibly difficult to pick which photos to use as they were all outstanding. Not a bad problem to have I guess! Overall if you're even considering Eric as your photographer, give him a call. You'll realize that his personality is worth just as much as his amazing photos. Thanks again Eric for everything!Sent on 02/15/2016
Eric Vest Photography, Inc.'s reply:You are too awesome Cassie! You and Mike are so much fun to be around and you both just spread joy! I wish we could go back and re-live your wedding day over and over! It was so fun! So glad to call you both friends now!

Eric kept us on track throughout the wedding day and was very organized and professional while still having a great time. We loved working with Eric and our pictures are absolutely beautiful!

Eric did a wonderful job with our wedding weekend. We had a traditional Indian Hindu Wedding that lasted a few days with multiple events. He was very attentive to our desires and what we needed. We could not have asked for a better photographer and team to cover our wedding weekend. Even when it was time to do the photo album, he was so dedicated. On his own, he reprinted the albums until they matched his high standards. The album came out beautiful! We found a great friend in Eric as well, and we can't wait to give him more of our projects to cover!Sent on 02/15/2016
Eric Vest Photography, Inc.'s reply:Priya, what a celebration it was! Thank you for letting me be a part of all the special moments! You guys and your families were so amazing, I felt like I was adopted in to the family through this awesome experience!

There literally aren't enough words to describe Eric. He's not only an amazing photographer but a great down to earth guy. From the first moment I sent him a message (might I add he replied right away on FATHERS DAY) to the time we received our wedding photos and still to this day it everything has been such an ease. He truly puts you the client first. He will do anything and everything to get the perfect shot. The thing we loved most about Eric Vest Photography is that there is no time limit on your big day. Eric is there to capture every moment. I don't know of very many, if any photographers that do it that way. He makes taking pictures on your wedding day fun and stress free. Most of the time we didn't even know he was there. We are so blessed that we found Eric Vest Photography and consider Eric and his family lifelong friends now.Sent on 02/15/2015

Eric is an amazing photographer! I would recommend him to absolutely anyone! He has an amazing personality and an amazing way of capturing every amazing detail of a moment! We interviewed a handful of photographers but I knew immediately that Eric was the right choice for us. During our engagement session Eric was completely flexible in the location and timing. During the entire session Eric did everything possible to make us feel comfortable; he make it seem like a walk through Minnehaha Falls with all of us getting to know one another and taking a few simple pictures. He set us up in the falls/park area, in locations that were fun/unique spots in the park. I was even more impressed when he sent us the pictures from the engagement session! They were amazing! Eric doesn’t limit the number of pictures that he takes and he captured some amazing shots with me and my fiancée. Eric was very thorough in our prep meeting and made sure that we had a realistic timeline, the listing of critical photos for the day and how he could help meet our overall expectations for the day. It was one of the most important prep meetings and Eric made sure that we felt completely comfortable with the plan.Sent on 01/04/2015
The day of our wedding went very quickly, but we were so lucky to have such a great photographer!! Eric captured all the details expected and not expected from the day. Eric also was there for under an “as long as needed” timeline, I know he was with us much later than I had expected him to be, but he was hesitant to leave before he believed he had all the pictures we would want and was sure to ask us if there were any additional pictures we wanted before he departed for the evening.
