Edward’s philosophy is simple; honor you, the day and live in the moment. His photography style is an artistic blend between modern photojournalism and traditional wedding photography. His goal, capture you're precious fleeting moments and preserve them for a lifetime.

Please keep in mind when you sit with Edward to discuss your wedding plans that he will be your photographer! Edward will be the one shooting your wedding and preserving your day for a lifetime. He enjoys getting to know his couples and the stories of how they came together.

Today many studios have you sit with a commissioned sales person and you never meet your photographer until the day of your wedding. With Edward you hear the passion in his voice and see the love for what he does in his eyes. You hear how excited he gets as he describes to you the images that he has captured.

The human spirit continually fascinates Edward. Somebody once said that we are not human beings having spiritual experiences; we are spiritual beings having human experiences. Is there a more perfect way to capture your story and experiences than through the lens of Edward's camera?

He is always honored to be present on such a special day. Edward thrives on capturing the romance and emotion of the day. Edward uses his heart to see the images and mind to capture them. Always mindful of the details both big and small that set the stage.

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!

Edward,

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 Rogus

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!

Edward,
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.

Edward was absolutely wonderful to work with. I would recommend him to everyone who needs a photographer and wants a great experience and great photos!
Edward was able to keep a relaxed, comfortable and fun atmosphere the whole time during our engagement session and my entire wedding day. My husband, who is not a huge fan of picture taking, had a great time and was completely mesmerized at the quality of our photos. So was I! Edward was able to capture moments in a way I've never seen before. My wedding album is amazing!

How do we start? I attended a bridal show in Tinley Park, Il where I first met him. His work stood out beyond belief! Eds' eye for detail and personality was what sparked my intrest in his services. After looking at different photographers and companys none matched the personal touch that we thought we wanted. On our first meeting he drove out to us at least two hours round trip plus the two hours we sat at panera and reviewed his work and went over the different packages. Our package included the engagment shoot which we had to reschedule at least twice once because my soon to be husband had the swine flu and the second because the weather was too humid. He was so pleasant to work with and knew what would look excellent, the poses looked so natural and we never felt uncomfortable. We were so happy with him that day, and was so relieved to see that he wasn't going to make our wedding day chaotic with rushed photos. Ed was at my mothers' house at least an hour before his scheduled time and took the time to walk around and get a feel for the upcoming photos. His attention to detail does not stop however at photography, any questions we had or rescheduling that needed to be done was never a problem. He was always just a phone call away and returned the call the same day if he did not anwser which was very rare. Ed made our day special with the photos he took, I can honestly say that no one or any company can come close to his work!!!
