The minute we looked up Eric's website, we knew we had found our photographer. Not only were we attracted to his lovely natural light photography, but his "About Me" section made us laugh a loud. We felt as though we had stumbled upon an old high school friend that we hadn't talked to in awhile. Maybe it is because we are all from the midwest or maybe Eric is just that cool, but from the moment we first started emailing, we felt as though we had found a kindred spirit. Eric is obviously very talented, but he is also a dream to work with, very organized, very thorough, and sensitive to the little details. Eric helped us work through the timeline of our wedding day and fit himself into that process with ease. The first time we met in person was on our wedding day and by that point we trusted him completely and he did not disappoint. The proof is in the pictures. Thank you Eric for capturing our day and making it all the more enjoyable.
After searching for a photographer for our wedding last summer, I was blown away by Eric's beautiful photographs. They looked timeless and professional in a way I hadn't seen from any other photographer. Eric was a pleasure to work with. Living in Arizona and planning a wedding in Wisconsin was no easy feat but Eric always kept in contact and would reply promptly to all my emails. My guests at the wedding just raved about how much they loved my photographer, he was great at capturing pictures of my guest and interacting with them! I on the other hand, barely noticed him as he took some of the most beautiful pictures of me and my husband! I truly fell in love with our photographs and I could not recommend Eric more! Thank you for giving me timeless, beautiful photos from the best day of my life!
Just enjoy the day and hire Eric M Schwanke Photography to keep everyone calm ;) I had the day meticulously planned down to the minute and it still ended up being disorganized and a total disaster.
Eric was more than we could have ever hoped for in a photographer! On the day, he was so prepared, calm and extremely friendly. He fit in completely with my wedding party & family which made the whole experience easy and fun! He gave me a sense of peace throughout the day knowing that everything I wanted photos of would be taken care of! I could not be happier with my photos! :)
