I cannot say enough GREAT & WONDERFUL things about Edward!! From the start, he was great to work with. He is easy going but incredibly passionate about his work, which shows in his photographer. Our engagement photos were taken downtown Chicago and absolutely wonderful! We had a few places planned but Edward found this alley and we got some amazing impromtu shots. As for the wedding day, he was a blast to work with! It’s a long day of pictures, and he made it so enjoyable. Prior to the wedding, we worked out a great timeline, and he was kind enough to scout out some great locations for us at the Morton Arboretum where we were getting married. The whole day went seamlessly, and we took advantage of getting a lot of great photos. Edwards is so creative in finding different shots, and you can be at ease putting your trust in him to get the right shots. Once we get our photos back, I’m sure I’ll have even more great things to write. But the few we saw from the back of his camera I was amazed with. Edward also specializes in nature photographer, so if you have an outdoor wedding, he is your guy! I would highly recommend Edward to any bride. You cannot go wrong with him!! I will be using him for photographer again!
Edward was an amazing photographer!!! We could not have been happier to call him our wedding photographer. He was so easy and fun to work with and we can’t wait to see our wedding pictures! You will not be disappointed and I would recommend him to everyone!
Edward was awesome. Not only does he take AMAZING pictures but he is such a fun person. My entire wedding party loved him! He was so laid back and made the experience even better with his happy attitude. Words do not describe how grateful I am that he was our photographer. He was prompt, professional, flexible, and you could tell he absolutely loves his job. You will not be disappointed! THANK YOU EDWARD!
Edward was such a pleasure to work with! My husband and I could not have asked for a better photographer! Being a couple who lives out of state, Edward always kept up with our crazy schedule and met with us when we were in town. He is well organized, flexible and he was so much fun to work with. Our pictures turned out amazing and our picture book gets kudos from all our friends and family! We were so happy to have Edward be part of our special day and he captured every moment perfectly!
What can we say? WOW! From they day we met you you were helped create the vision of our day. You didn’t do that in a staged and unnatural way, but did it incorporating thought, emotion, artistry, and tradition. Your work helps tell the story of our day from each expression, detail, and memorable moment. You were you were thoughtful, thorough, planned out, efficient, but not intrusive. We felt as though you had a plan that followed our vision. When we share our wedding pictures people’s faces light up. The photographs are stunning, clean, artistic, natural, and look like they belong in magazines. The art book you helped put together is truly that: ART. Our album is something that we will cherish forever. Thank you for being such a big part of our BIG day.

Hiring Edward as the photographer for our wedding was one of the easier decisions my wife and I had to make. We met Edward at his house in Naperville and he spoke with us and showed us his some of his work. Unlike other photographers we had met with, Edward showed us all of the photos he had taken for other weddings. He was showing us that anyone can get lucky, take a few good pictures, and make a portfolio to show potential clients. Unlike the other photographers, Edward had nothing to hide. He does wonderful work and he knows it. He isn’t cocky about it but has a quiet confidence that you want your photographer to have. He was very flexible and open to suggestions; Edward expressed ideas he liked for us and was very receptive to the ideas we had for him. Rather that just snap random pictures, Edward’s pictures created a story of our day. He told my wife and I that our pictures would be done in 4-6 weeks, but probably closer to 6 weeks. They were done in 18 days. He is an extremely hard worker, with a wonderful eye for photography, and has a laid back personality which really helps on a potentially stressful day. If you’re even considering Edward as your photographer, consider no more and just say yes, you won’t be disappointed.
Choosing Edward Weiland as our photographer was one of the best decisions my husband and I made for our wedding. As a bride, meeting with different photographers and vendors was completely overwhelming and stressful. Hearing complaints from several other friends who chose more “corporate” photographers was frightening while planning our own wedding. Edward made us feel so comfortable during our initial meeting. He has been nothing but wonderful to work with ever since. Our engagement pictures turned out absolutely beautiful – especially given the fact that Edward took them outside… during a tornado warning. Edward created a perfect time schedule for the day, and seeing that time schedule during the time leading up to our wedding was a HUGE stress reliever! He was extremely personable, asking for names of bridal party members well in advance of our day. Having a wedding party of eleven couples, Edward was incredibly patient in setting up pictures, and directing people to where they needed to be with the enormous group. That being said, Edward dealt wonderfully with ALL of the types of personalities he came across throughout the day. We had a great time with him, and laughed so much throughout the day. We are so excited to see our wedding pictures, and so happy that we picked Edward Weiland to capture the moments of the most important day of our lives! We highly recommend him to anyone else planning a wedding!
Lindsay and I really can’t express in words how thankful we were to have your as our Wedding Photographer. From your outstanding customer service throughout the entire planning process to the product you delivered on wedding day, everything was superb and helped make our wedding truly perfect.
As you know, southwest Michigan has a special place in our hearts. We wanted to make sure picture of us were captured in the vineyards of the wineries, as well as the beaches of New Buffalo, just as the sun set over the Lake. We didn’t know how this could happen, especially with us living in the western suburbs of Chicago. The fact that you, without batting an eye, offered to meet us two hours around the Lake on a Sunday afternoon, so all that is special to our relationship could be captured in our Engagement Photos, was more meaningful to us than you know.
Based on your experience and expertise, you understand not all goes as planned when preparing for a wedding. Every time an unexpected wrinkle came up, you showed incredible professionalism, and adjusted around our schedule. Not very many people are as willing to be that flexible and for that, thank you.
We spent nearly a year planning our wedding. A year’s prep for an event that lasted one day. An event and a day that we wanted to be perfect. Based on the quality of your work product, Lindsay and I now have hundreds of reminders of the best, most perfect day of our lives.
All that being said, please accept this note as our way of saying “Thank you!”. Thank you for having an incredible personality and for making us laugh every step of the way. Thank you for capturing Lindsay and I in the place where we fell in love. Thank you for being professional, flexible, understanding, supportive, and for producing such an outstanding work product. Most importantly…thank you so much for helping make our wedding perfect!
Our Most Sincere Regards,
Lindsay & Andy
