  • I am so thrilled with the beautiful photos we have of our wedding day. Erik Leise is the hardest worker you will find--he was constantly up and moving, making sure he captured all the special moments. I am so happy to have the perfect mix of formal shots (gorgeous sunset shots, I might add) with the fun, candid shots that make me laugh and smile every time I look at them. Erik will be there with you every step of the way, including the rehearsal, wedding, reception, and more, even if your venue is outside of Richmond, like ours was. And if there is something special to you that you want photographed, he will make it happen. He is not only a great photographer, but he is an amazing person who will make you feel completely comfortable. We 100% recommend him; he will give you thousands of gorgeous photos of your wedding day and celebration, and every time you open your wedding album, you will find yourself smiling, laughing, and remembering all of the beautiful moments of that day. ...

  • I really do not typically write reviews, but Erik really was one of the nicest and easiest people to work with. He was one of my two favorite vendors for my wedding in October of 2019, and even ended up recommending the DJ that we used (who was my other favorite vendor). As I said before, Erik was super easy to work with and so friendly. His energy just made me relax as I knew he would take care of everything. Erik was always responsive to any question that I had and was flexible when I threw things at him at the last minute. He essentially kept the wedding party moving as he knew our schedule in and out. Without him I am not even sure if I would have made it to the church on time! About a month after the wedding, we received a link from him which contained over 3800 photos. We were blown away by all the pictures he took. We spent hours laughing and crying over all the moments he captured. I still do not know how he managed to capture everything that he did and even after six... Read more

  • Erik was so wonderful and down to earth. He was a pleasure to work with. We are a bit informal and very uncomfortable in front of a camera. We knew we wanted a more relaxed feel to everything, but in terms of planned photos, we had minimal ideas. Erik was responsive and incredibly helpful, but he did not push us in any direction we weren't comfortable. He understood what we wanted, and he delivered. He was present but never really in the way, which was a feat given the small space of our venue. He was able to capture some incredibly candid moments and those are some of our absolute favorite photos. Choosing Erik as our photographer was the easiest and best decision we made. We'd highly recommend him.

  • Erik was an amazing photographer to capture our wedding! From our traditional church service, catching all the parts of the ceremony, to being in the middle of the dancing ! The amount of pictures we received that reflected our day exactly how it was is outstanding! We could not be more thrilled with how accommodating he was but also how he was creative with different picture suggestions. We loved that he was able to be at the rehearsal to understand the ceremony and include those memories too. Lastly, Erik truly covered our entire day and we loved the unlimited time of coverage!

  • Erik is fantastic! He captures all of your memories from the rehearsal dinner to the final send off. In addition, he provides you a link to all of your photos and you are welcome to do with them what you please. He was so easy to work with and with both of us that are not huge fans of photos he makes it as painless as possible. Erik is worth every penny you spend and more!

  • We could not have asked for a better photographer. Eric was organized and responsive helping us plan for our wedding, and was phenomenal at the events. At the rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, ceremony, and reception, Eric was omnipresent. He captured thousands of fantastic shots for us to remember our day, and posted them quickly, with an easy link to share with family and friends. He will be our first choice for any future events, and should be yours, too Christian & Sarah

  • Erik did such a great job! He was very flexible and worked with us to make sure we had everything in place before the day. Our pictures turned out amazing and he truly captured all of our favorite moments. He was very patient with our big and unruly family, which is no easy task! We highly recommend booking Erik for your wedding or event!

  • Erik Leise was wonderful to work with at my son's wedding! He was professional, thoughtful, and very flexible. The weather cleared up and he was able to quickly include an entire outdoor photo shoot. He was high energy and was always in the right place to capture some amazing moments! His photos are incredible and included black and white and color versions of literally thousands of great shots! I highly recommend Erik Leise to photograph your wedding! Donna Burnley

  • My husband and I had just moved to the Richmond area from out of state and only had a few months to plan our wedding, so we knew going into this that finding our vendors would be a challenge. We decided to look for a photographer first and we were so glad that we found Erik. My husband and I are both introverts and don’t like being the center of attention. We were looking for a photographer that didn’t focus on posed portraits. We wanted “natural” looking photos. After looking online, we both agreed that we really liked the candid and sunset photos in Erik’s portfolio and that his prices were affordable so we decided to contact him. Within minutes of setting up a meeting with Erik, we knew that we wanted to hire him on the spot. He was so polite, friendly, and easy to talk to that we knew that we made the right choice. We decided we also wanted to book an engagement shoot to get more comfortable in front of the camera before the wedding. Since we weren’t familiar with th... Read more

  • I don’t know where to start. Erik is an absolutely amazing photographer and I feel really blessed to have found him for our wedding! From our first contact, he was very professional, yet still down to earth. It really felt like I’d known him for a long time, and that meant a lot knowing he would be with me for the entire day! My husband and I both feel like we’re terrible at taking pictures, but Erik made the whole experience comfortable. He’s excellent at what he does and you almost forget he’s there . . . until you see the all the beautiful photos!!!! ! We and our families LOVED our pictures and are so happy we had the chance to work with Erik. I would recommend him a thousand times over to anyone looking for a fabulous photographer!!

  • Erik was a fantastic wedding photographer; I'm so happy we found him! He was the most responsive out of any of our vendors, organized with a list of all the photo combinations we wanted, and very flexible/willing to make suggestions for many of our "staged" shots, all without pushing us to do anything we were uncomfortable with. He got along great with our family members and took sooooo many amazing pictures. I can't believe some of the reception shots he got; it looks like he was in the middle of the party, but he was so unobtrusive, we didn't even notice that he was there! I love that he was able to capture so many aspects of our wedding day. Those are priceless memories and thanks to Erik, we have thousands of beautiful pictures to help us remember them. He is a wonderful person and wonderful photographer, we highly recommend him!

  • Erik did a beautiful job photographing our wedding. He managed to capture all of the traditional photos and still provided us with many creative and unusual shots, which is what we were hoping for. We requested a few very specific images and they were done very thoughtfully. He was ulta professional and efficient, and I'm thrilled we chose him. I would definitely recommend!

  • Erik did an incredible job as our photographer for our wedding in September 2018; hiring him was one of the best decisions that we made. Erik is extremely talented, hardworking, professional, and reliable. Plus, he’s personable and a lot of fun! We had him take engagement photos in addition to our wedding photos and they all turned out beautifully. Because our wedding was in Charlottesville and he is based out of Richmond, he even offered to meet us at our venue a few months before the wedding so he could scope out shot locations. He really went the extra mile for us and we felt like we were in capable hands throughout the entire planning process and on our wedding day. Erik caught every detail of our wedding day without being obtrusive. His demeanor and style puts you at ease and allows him to capture gorgeous, natural photos. I’ve loved going back and looking at our wedding photos over and over again; it’s like I’m reliving the day each time I view them! Erik is also very ... Read more

  • Erik did an absolutely amazing job for our september wedding! My husband and I planned our wedding while thousands of miles away from each other and Erik was super accomodating! There was never an issue of service and he truly does an absolutely amazing job. Very laid back and makes you feel so relaxed on a day that is bound to be anxiety filled! He took STUNNING photos and captured memories I didnt even know I had missed on. Highly recommend!!! Thank you Erik for being apart of our most special day, your dedication and loving touch definitely helped to make the most perfect day.
