About Me

Hi there! I'm Erik Weiss, a freelance photographer who grew up in the gorgeous Chippewa Valley. After living and studying in Madison for four years and after a short stint abroad, I have returned to my roots here in Eau Claire. Each landscape or person I photograph has played a formative role in shaping the lens through which I view the world.

I strive to capture the natural beauty in every setting. I often find myself traveling off the beaten path, with my camera in tow, in search of magical locations. I don't use a flash or altered lighting if I can help it. Instead, I use the natural lighting to capture my subjects, whether they are people or landscapes, at their best. 

Life moves so quickly we often miss the little details. A shy smile between newlyweds, a child in mid laugh, or the vibrant autumn colors before the first freeze. I strive to catch the beauty in these moments and preserve them so they'll last a lifetime.

All shoots come with unlimited access to the full resolution files after they have been uploaded to the website. You are free to print all images without restriction. Generally I try to deliver roughly 20 unique images per hour of shooting.
Custom Packages
If you have an idea for an event in mind that you aren't sure fits any of the above (for example maybe you want a sunset elopement with pictures under the stars followed by a small session the next morning at sunrise), send me a message and we can figure something out! I'm always up for adventures.
Additional Costs
Depending on the location of the shoot, I may add a traveling expense to cover transportation and/or lodging if not in the Eau Claire area. Additionally, if you desire a second photographer for part or all of your coverage, I can try to arrange for that as well.  Any additional costs will be communicated in advance and included in a signed contract.
