I would like to say first and foremost that Eric is a really nice guy and at time easy to work with. However, there were definitely things that we were unhappy with throughout the process. I think the main piece of this was his professionalism. We loved the idea that we had a really friendly, easy going photographer which was fine at first. But what became a problem was how he interacted with our guests at the wedding and that I felt like he acted more as a guest at our wedding than as our photographer. I was willing to overlook this until we dealt with him post-wedding. Not only did he post our pictures to facebook without our consent, but he also did not let us know ahead of time that he was doing this. The first time I saw my pictures was at the same time as every other random person on facebook. Lastly, instead of an e-mail to let us know that our albums were up on our website, I received a wall post on facebook. I don't even check facebook so I had no idea. I had to find out from a 3rd party that our albums were ready. This was completely unprofessional and disappointing. Overall, nice guy but just not as professional as I was looking for for our wedding.

Eric Farewell takes incredible pictures and was an incredible blessing to us on our wedding day. I ditto all the things the earlier reviews said about him putting people at ease and getting along with everyone. Also, he is a whole lot of fun.
Eric is so helpful and the most non-stuffy person ever. Book him for your wedding and you will never regret it!
P.S. We spent more on photography than on any other part of the wedding but it was so worth it!

Eric and his "team" (his wife Danielle) were wonderful! He is soo good at capturing the moments, not just the poses. They fully commit to you and your special day. He is also very good at keeping things on track if you haven't hired a planner which helps keeps you from spending an hour after the ceremony taking pictures and lets you enjoy the people, music and food! They are very friendly and seemed to get along with everyone involved in the wedding, including my new sister-in-law who doesn't speak English. Overall, I love our beautiful pictures and would highly recommend Eric and Danielle Farewell with Farewell Photography!

I myself shoot a lot of weddings and this is the guy I picked to shoot ours'. Eric's understanding of light mixed with his creative eye were just the thing I was looking for. His candid shots are proof that this guy is always on guard for those perfect moments. Your biggest problem will be choosing what photos to let go.

Eric Farewell did an amazing job shooting our Wedding Day. Many of the guests commented how comfortable he made them feel with his friendly approach which resulted in natural shots- that we LOVE!

Eric always returned our emails and calls and was very understanding with what we wanted from our photographer on our big day.

His beautiful assistant (his wife Nelle) did an awesome job as well and even when she saw me struggling with my bouquet during the speeches offered to run to my room to get the vase. Although only a small thing this shows they care making your day truly perfect in every way.

Our wedding photographs speak volumes about Eric's talent and passion for shooting people's wedding day. I might be a little bias but you should check them and see for yourself. (Link below)

Eric is a wonderful photographer and very passionate about what he does. He also has a good eye for detail and personalizing his work to show off his own style, but also the uniqueness of the couple. We had so much fun having him photograph our wedding. I have known Eric for years and always wanted him to be my wedding photographer; now on the other side of it, I couldn't be happier. He took the time to find out what we were looking for from him and he went above and beyond our expectations. One thing that stood out the most to me and really made me so happy about working with Eric is that he got to know our families and our bridal party and truly connected with them. He also photographed the rehearsal and dinner party and everyone had a great time with him. He has a gift for putting people at ease. I observed during the reception that no one was shy having him take pictures of them. It resulted in fabulous pictures of people having fun together. No one was uncomfortable in front of the camera. His wife, Danielle, works as his assistant and also happened to be my coordinator and she was fabulous. You can tell they both love what they are doing and they make a great team.
Eric delivered our pictures to us in a very timely fashion and put a sneak peek up for us when we got back from our honeymoon. The album he designed for us is exquisite. You can tell he put a lot of time and thought into the layout; it really does tell the story of our wedding and I tear up every time I look at it. I think that says it all.

Where do I even begin? Eric say absolutely amazing, in every way that a photographer should be, and in many, many ways that I never expected from a photographer.

Eric helped us with our wedding from the very first step. If there was ever anything we needed, he was there to help us and offer us advice. He has so much knowledge about the modern wedding industry, which was invaluable as we tried to plan the best wedding possible.

He was ALWAYS punctual (he actually beat us to the wedding rehearsal and rehearsal dinner), always professional, and always positive, which (trust me) is a plus in those stressful last days/moments before the ceremony. He captured our wedding as it happened, staging only what we wanted him to stage, and capturing the rest naturally and flawlessly. I never noticed him taking pictures during the ceremony, and when I got the pictures back, I was stunned (in a great way) at the beautiful shots he was able to get of us without me ever seeing.

Now on to the pictures themselves- there really aren't words to describe his talent with a camera. I still have people, four months after the ceremony, coming up to me and telling me how beautiful they thought my wedding pictures are. (These are often people I've never met before, or haven't spoken to in years.) I could not be more pleased with the quantity, and quality, of the work he provided.

Basically, Eric was tops in every way that matters. The one thing I wanted to invest in for my wedding was the photography, since that's what you take with you when the day is done, and I am SO glad I picked Eric.

Each of Eric’s photos is a piece of art. Whether he captures a landscape scene, compiled of nature, memorabilia and personal items or an uninhibited portrait of friends or couples, he understands how to convey feelings of passion and love that will stand the test of time. He uses light and depth to bring each shot to life. Eric Farewell is my favorite photographer. He and his wife, Danielle are wonderful to work with and I, Amber Love Johnson, highly recommend them.

Farewell Photography is the best! We loved working with the very personable photographer, Eric, and his beautiful wife, Danielle. We were so excited to get our pictures back, and got them in a really timely manner. We were absolutely blown away by them! The emotion Eric catches in a photo is incredible... words cannot do it justice! Our pictures have brought us many smiles and happy tears, and continue to do so every time we see them!

We refer everyone we know to Farewell Photography!
