Booking Eric for our engagement and wedding photos was hands down the best decision we made for our day. He is so incredibly talented and professional.

Eric is absolutely amazing. My partner and I are kind of awkward people and don’t typically photograph well, but he was great to work with, really put us at ease, and we look good in the pictures!! Beyond just taking flattering pictures of awkward, un-photogenic people, Eric is...

Eric photographed our downtown Boston wedding in December and captured our night perfectly. He has an eye for a backdrop and makes pictures unique.

It's almost unfair to limit a review to just words. Just take one look at the photographs Eric takes and you will not need to read any further. The pictures Eric is able to take are nothing short of spectacular . He can take a a gorgeous perfect day and capture it all on film,... Read More somehow making it even better. Eric is super easy to work with and very open to any ideas. When we first met Eric for our engagement shoot, I had a list of suggestions for places we could take our photos. Eric took my suggestion list and walked for 5 hours through the city of Boston so we hit not just one but all the sites. On our wedding day we were lucky enough to have beautiful skies on our wedding day and Eric was able to capture the skies color and vibrance in all our pictures. I love looking at the reception pictures from our wedding as well. There are so many pictures of all my guests caught in perfect moments of happiness and joy and fun. It is wonderful to have those memories captured. Eric's skills are truly worth every penny. Photography was the second most important wedding expense to me on my wedding day after the location and I don't think I could have asked for anything more than what Eric provided. Friendly, easygoing, and most importantly, incredibly talented.

Eric is an amazing photographer and was such a joy to work with! He did both our engagement and wedding photos and they turned out absolutely beautiful! He also sends the photos out really fast! After both sessions we had a handful of photos in our inbox the next morning (which... Read More was especially impressive after our New Year’s Eve wedding!), which made our moms very happy because they had awesome photos to post on Facebook! Eric provided all of our photos to us on a thumb drive, which was a huge selling point for us! During our wedding, Eric was by our side all night and captured all of the most important and special moments, but without being in our face or annoying. In fact, most of the time we didn’t even notice, which meant he got a lot of beautiful, genuine candid shots. Eric is a trooper and would do whatever he needed to get the perfect shot! At one point he was laying in the snow without a coat on to get a picture of us during the NYE fireworks show. We absolutely loved working with Eric and highly recommend him for any event.

Ladies! Gentlemen! Do yourself a favor and BOOK Eric McCallister Photography! Best decision my husband and I made!! I consider myself someone who is very hard to please and Eric absolutely amazed me with his creative talents!! I loved his website photos when I first discovered... Read More him and contacted him right away. We hired him immediately before our first in-person meeting ended. He and his second photographer, Brian, were ALWAYS polite, unobtrusive, fun, efficient, and easy going. They were extremely professional and did every formal (work friend, college friends) or photo (rings, cake, my shoes, guys getting ready) we wanted from the list my hubby and I put together. Just last night we received the email link to our proofs. I immediately sent it to my MOH and mom which created another unforgettable moment. We all cried (in a good way!! tears of pure joy!) while looking at the photos. He brilliantly captured the moments so we were able to relive it all over again. We did not have a videographer and knew how important the photos needed to be. After months and months of planning, the day goes by in a flash and you'll want EPIC photos to capture every special moment and even those you might have missed! Eric delivered everything and more! Booking Eric will seriously be a load of stress off your shoulders. You will not need to worry about anything, just pick the package you want, provide a list, and they will do the rest. Worth every penny! We cannot say thank you enough!

We are from New Jersey and were married in Rockport, Massachusetts so there was a little bit of anxiety finding a photographer out of state for our destination wedding. I spent a lot of time researching photographers in the area and viewing their work and reviews. We couldn't be... Read More happier with our choice. Eric is a true professional. His photos are unique and classic. He has the ability to capture natural looking photographs with the most beautiful background without having it looked staged. Eric was great to work with.

We definitely felt like we got the absolute best for our money.

I searched through a million blogs to find a photographer that would really capture the energy of Mark and my special day -- when I found Eric's portfolio, I immediately reached out. I was a bit too late in the year and Eric was not available on the day of our wedding, so he... Read More introduced me to his associate photographer Peter Martin who still had the day open. Firstly, Eric runs a fantastic business; it was so easy and streamlined to work with him from start to finish, which is ideal when you have 500 things on your to-do list.

His demeanor was so fun yet still calming, just what a bride needs amidst the nerves. He was able to understand all of my family and friend's unique personalities and somehow capture all of those in the photos he took. Mark and I can't thank Peter and Eric enough for such an incredible experience and for capturing the memories of our wedding so beautifully.

She told us that of all of the weddings and events she’d been a part of,... Read More she’d never seen photos quite like his. After working with Eric and seeing the moments he was able to capture, we couldn’t agree more! Eric was extremely professional, made us feel comfortable, and was able to creatively and unobtrusively document our day. Beyond this, Eric is just a wonderful person. He went above and beyond to make sure we had priceless photographs of a family member who wasn’t able to make it to the wedding.

We hired Eric and his assistant to take photos of our Rehearsal Dinner and our Wedding in July. I live in NYC and our wedding was in NH so I was putting a lot of trust in someone I hadn't met, even though I did a lot of research and booked him a year in advance. We were SO... Read More pleasantly surprised by the amazing quality of his work. Our friends and family can not stop raving about the beautiful photos we have, and they all exceeded our expectations. At the last minute we asked him to photograph our rehearsal dinner and he made himself available and captured many beautiful photos of our clam bake. Eric has an artistic style, but incorporated many posed photos, beautiful candids, and our important details in a beautiful way. He captured moments my husband and I missed - which is such a gift for us. We had dinner with friends who are engaged recently and they asked us what was the best decision we made, and my answer was that we hired Eric! I had this vision in my mind of how great our photos could be and I was so ecstatic to have the final product (that we got in THREE WEEKS by the way) exceeded our expectations in any way. A special thing he did was send us a handful of photos via email the very night of our wedding, so we went to bed so happy that we knew we made the right decision.

Meet The Owner

Eric McCallister

I began my photography career shooting rock climbers scaling cliffs throughout the U.S. Combining my passion for adventure with my love of art and design, I very quickly became obsessed with creating images that were not only “pretty” but conveyed a sense of “being there” and of the emotions felt by my subjects. Seeing and capturing fleeting moments from behind a lens proved to be a powerful addiction which led me to portraiture and wedding photography.
