Steph & Brad

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

"Not even sure where to begin with this review because I am still speechless over my wedding photos!! Eric was absolutely, hands down, the BEST photographer we could have asked for on our wedding day. He went so far above and beyond our expectations that I still can't believe we found him. Not only was he professional, flexible, easygoing, and SO MUCH FUN, but his pictures are stunning. He captured every single moment of our wedding day, down to the minute and was truly up for any crazy idea I threw at him. He took time to get every detail and was everywhere you wanted him to be, but he never felt intrusive. Half of the time I did not even know he was there because he is just THAT good. I am so thankful for Eric and I cannot recommend him enough! You will not find a more perfect person to document your big day!!"

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

"Wow! Where to start...Eric was by far the easiest part of planning our wedding! He was responsive, helpful, and made us feel comfortable. Our engagement photo session didn’t feel like a first meeting, it felt more like taking fun pictures with an incredibly talented wedding photographer friend. And the engagement photos were absolutely beautiful. Our wedding day was no different. He made sure we got the perfect wedding photos while simultaneously making sure we were having fun and enjoying the day. Everyone that has seen our wedding photos is blown away by them. He truly captured us on the best day of our lives! And everyone that met him the day of the wedding has said how great he was- friendly, engaging, and working hard to get the best photos. You could not go wrong with Eric as your wedding photographer!"

Wedding at Landoll's Mohican Castle in Loudonville, Ohio - Cleveland Wedding Photographer Eric McBride

Gabrielle & Matt

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

"Where do we even begin with Eric.... hands down the best overall wedding photography experience! From our engagement photo session (that we LOVED) where Eric made the couple hours we had together feel like three friends just hanging out and laughing. Not once did it feel staged, forced or unnatural and that shined through in the end results. Fast forward to our wedding day, we couldn’t have asked for a more prompt, professional wedding photographer who knows EXACTLY how to get the most natural, candid moments of that day that actually captured our true emotions. Beyond just being a wedding photographer, Eric was an amazing person to be around and work with. Such a genuine, down to earth guy who helps bring the calm to the storm of nerves you’ll feel on your big day. If you want the total package, Eric is your guy!"

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

"I found Eric through the Thumbtack app I instantly fell in love with his work via his website and reached out. From the minute we spoke on the phone I knew he would be a perfect fit for my fiancé and I! Eric is such a personable laid back fun guy! He made things really easy during our shoot and captured the most natural candid moments of our day! He was open to trying any of our ideas as well as showing us his vision for each photo. He made things easy and relaxed which was very important to us. Cannot thank him enough as my family wants to order every photo he took of us! Highly recommend Eric and will be sharing his info with all my friends and family!"

"Our wedding photos are absolutely beautiful! I could not believe it! I am so glad we chose Eric to be our wedding photographer. It was adorable the way he took my kids under his wing, especially my little girl. That definitely added a little something to the day! Eric did such a great job and really went the extra mile and I can't thank him enough. I'll recommend him to anyone who'll listen!"

Anna & Brian

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

"Okay! So Eric is seriously the sweetest, easiest going, kindest human being. From our first phone conversation, we knew we would get along! He was funny, personable and so ready to go for a hike with us! Our engagement session included all four of our dogs. One has some serious health stuff going on including a partially torn ACL. While my fiancé and I were getting frustrated, Eric was relaxed and patient. I'm not going to lie, it was seriously like being out in the woods with one of our friends. We genuinely had fun, laughed and he caught it. He also took some awesome shots of our dogs. And we love that! He showed up in hiking boots, got muddy, and we got off trail for some awesome pictures!! We want to do another engagement shoot just to hang out with him💕💕 He had our pictures to us in a week and they are beautiful! The colors, shots, his editing. Beautiful."

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

"Let me start off by saying Eric is an absolute pleasure to work with! He's got such a friendly and warm personality that you can see and feel through his work, any nerves we had went away within seconds of meeting him. It felt like we were meeting an old friend to catch up. Our engagement photos are all so candid (besides the classically posed ones that we know Grandma is going to LOVE) it was so easy to forget we were doing a shoot! We're going to treasure these engagement photos for years to come!!"

There was tons of laughing, chatting and he took the time to really get to know who we are as people and as a couple. I am beyond thrilled with Eric’s work and can't wait for him to capture our wedding!"

"Eric goes so far above and beyond what you could possibly hope for as your wedding photographer. He captured joyous and heartfelt moments from us and our families. He was more than just a wedding photographer for our wedding day, it felt like we had a life long friend there with us. We think that's the key to his beautiful wedding photos! It's impossible to not feel comfortable in his presence! Both my younger sisters are excited to have Eric capture their wedding days!"

It might seem like a long form to fill out, but I promise it makes a HUGE difference in getting to know your personal wedding photography needs and creating the perfect wedding photography package for you and your fiancé (:

Once I know the details of your wedding day, I'll send you an email with pricing and availability, as well as a link to a full client gallery from a past wedding for you to check out. I can't wait to hear from you!

Engagement sessions are free when booking 6+ hours of wedding day coverage or +$300 if booking less than 6 hours of wedding day coverage.

**Need help deciding? A quick way to estimate how much photography coverage you'll need is to start about 3 hours prior to your ceremony and end about 2 hours before your reception ends (unless you're having a sparkler exit!) For example, if your ceremony is at 4pm and your reception ends at 11pm, you'd most likely want photography coverage from 1pm - 9pm (8 hours). This is just a rough guideline to use as a starting point and I can definitely help you figure out exactly how much coverage you'll need (:

This helps me better understand what you and your fiancé like!
