Erik Waddell at A Thousand Moments is a fun and active photographer. He does very well in communicating with people and just capturing the moments as the day goes by. I truly loved his interaction with guests and wedding party. He was constantly taking pictures throughout my... Read More entire event and dedicated the time to meet my needs in group photos.

Erik is amazing. We had him take our engagement photos and our wedding photos and we could not be happier with our choice. I met Erik at a Bridal Expo and I remember he said to me "I don't want to take photos of how you and your guests looked on your wedding day, I want to take...

I have every intention of having Erik photograph our future children and highly recommend him to all brides everywhere!

A Photographer's Wedding Photographer

Reviewed on 4/23/2014 Lisa W

As a serious amateur photographer, I was looking for a wedding photographer whose sense of composition, lighting, and capturing the feeling of the moment were of a quality that would yield beautiful photos that I would love and admire long after my wedding. Erik at A Thousand... Read More Moments Photography exceeded our expectations. So many of our wedding photos had great composition and perfect lighting while capturing us in so many magical expressions on our special day. Every special photo request was captured beautifully, and before the wedding, Erik even scouted out a few different locations to determine the optimal location for our formal family portraits. We received a proposed layout of our wedding album a few weeks after our wedding, and I liked very much that Erik does both the photography and the wedding album layout. Instead of us sorting through all the wedding photos to pick our favorites, Erik provided us with a head start by doing the initial editing by preselecting the album photos. We were very happy to have our parent albums completed in time for us to give them as gifts at Christmas. We loved Erik as our wedding photographer and recommend him to all of our family and friends.

We could not have chosen a more perfect photographer for our wedding day

Reviewed on 10/28/2013

Like many brides I was getting a little overwhelmed over needing to make so many decisions and find the right vendors. I love pictures and a wedding photographer was very important to me. I wanted to find someone who not only took amazing pictures (and I'm talking about the kind... Read More you look at and think wow these look so much more beautiful then any pictures I could ever take ..as opposed to the kind you see and think that any guest at the wedding could have just snapped) but also who I felt comfortable around and could see working with on what I imagined would be a day where my stress level was incredibly high. We met with a few photographers and Erik was immediately our top choice. I have to say we really nailed our goal of finding the perfect photographer for us and someone we'd feel comfortable with and enjoy having around us on our wedding day. Erik was an absolute pleasure to work with and our parents and also many of our guests commented on what a nice/great person he is. We truly love our wedding photos and our biggest problem is that we have too many pictures we like which we now need to somehow whittle down to fit into an album. Our families and friends have also commented on how beautiful they think our photos came out. I do not typically write reviews but I really wanted to say that I don't think it's possible for anyone to regret choosing A Thousand Moments as their wedding photographer.

My high school friend recommended Erik from "A Thousand Moments Photography" to me for my wedding. We ended up choosing him and are so pleased that we did! Erik did an absolutely amazing job with our wedding photos! Throughout the day, he never stopped, snapping shot after... Read More shot. He captured everything including a plethora of very emotional and candid pictures. He was fantastic to work with and made sure to let everyone know that he would be more than willing to take any photos they wanted. We had a coffee-themed wedding and asked him during the reception to capture our wedding bands in coffee beans. The resulting photo was spectacular. Erik was very quick to post our photos online and the quality and scope of photos was amazing! Also, his pricing is very affordable which was very important to my husband and I. Because of his extraordinary level of talent, professionalism, and commitment, I highly recommend "A Thousand Moments Photography".

Exceeded my Expectations

Reviewed on 7/25/2013 Alicia C

First off, anyone who has ever searched for a wedding photographer knows it can be a grueling task. Erik of A Thousand Moments was recommended to me by a friend of my mother-in-law. For some reason I always thought that I wanted a female photographer to shoot my wedding, so I... Read More sort of brushed it off. Once I exhausted all my other leads I contacted Erik and set up a time to meet and I am so glad that I did! Within 10 minutes of leaving the meeting I knew he was the one. I called him immediately to reserve our date. He was so professional, his work was amazing, and I instantly felt comfortable and confident that he would do a great job. We met last fall to do an engagement session. My husband isn't the most outgoing person and isn't very big into posed photography, but Erik made us have fun and we truly had a blast with the session - the pictures came out amazing - our friends and family loved getting them as gifts for the holidays and we used them for holiday cards and save-the-dates as well. The weeks leading up to the wedding Erik made sure we had communicated our must have photos and went over who the important guests of the wedding were so that he would know all their names and be sure to get shots of them throughout the event. (Very personal!) The day of the wedding Erik showed up well before we had scheduled to survey where he would be working. Throughout the day he did a fantastic job of keeping me at ease without really letting me know he was there. I cannot speak enough about the quality of work and professionalism that Erik possesses. Our photo's were ready for viewing along with a custom album within two and a half to three weeks and there were close to 900 amazingly beautiful shots! The turn around was so fast. He has been more than helpful in arranging and editing our album and we will be ordering it this week. We were married on June 8, 2013 and it is less than 8 weeks from the day of the wedding. - I know people who were married over a year ago and still don't have their albums! I would recommend Erik to anyone who is looking for a photographer - and already have! He exceeded my expectations!! Thank you Erik for capturing our day. Alicia & Brian Kemp.
