These days photography can be done by anyone with a smartphone, yet it is mastered by few. We've been creating fine art images since 1998. As an award-winning Certified Professional Photographer (CPP), we will deliver to you natural and vibrant images that you will love.



Our goal is to tell the story of your wedding without interfering in the natural flow of the day. Our aim is capturing the essence of your day in an unobtrusive way. We strive to foster relationships with our clients so when they look into our cameras, they see a friend. When you can act natural with your photographer, you are going to look relaxed, genuine and radiant in your photos.



We want our clients to be able to look back at their photographs and be able to remember what their wedding day felt like, not just what it looked like. If our work can do that, then we've done our job.



We look forward to being a part of your wedding journey.

Working with Eric and Hoffland Studios was so easy and so fun! They were very timely with turnaround of the wedding pictures and also the printing of the pictures took no time at all. Eric has an awesome personality and was so fun to meet with and share ideas with. Being in the wedding business I have worked with Hoffland Studios on many occasions and I would not have chosen anyone else to do my own wedding. They are amazing, there is so much creativity and passions behind each picture!

We planned our wedding from California and had our ceremony at Ashton Gardens-Houston. We had looked at several photographers web sites and appreciated Eric's site and talent. We scheduled an appointment and met at his studio. Eric was on time and provided us a lot of information. When we left our meeting we were excited about Eric photographing our ceremony.
The day of our ceremony Eric and his assistant were on time and setting up. Eric and his assistant took all the photos on our list of family members, since family members came to Texas from California, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Washington State, and Montana. Our family had a good time working with Eric and his assistant and even took photos of them at the reception. Our daughter asked if Eric would come to San Diego to photographer her wedding next year because Eric was easy and fun to work with.
We highly recommend Eric as your photographer he was on time, easy to work with, and does beautiful work.

Eric was absolutely wonderful to work with. He’s funny, creative, and made us feel comfortable right away. He walked us through the entire process, giving us ideas and suggestions to make sure our wedding day was perfect. Eric captured so many special moments and had such creative ideas throughout our engagement pictures, bridals, and wedding day. To put it simply, he will always do an amazing job, and we cannot recommend him any higher!

I used Eric as my photographer for my wedding and bridal portraits at Ashton Gardens and he did a PHENOMENAL job! I absolutely love all the pictures. Normally, I am not great in front of a camera but he made me feel so comfortable and at ease that it was not a problem. During my bridals, he was playing music through the speakers of my ceremony site to make it more fun and comfortable. Also, any time I had questions (may it be from hair to make-up to even flowers at one point) Eric answered anything and everything. You can tell he has been doing this for a long time and is very knowledgable with weddings in general. If you want everything to run smooth and easy and have great pictures from your wedding, Eric is your man!

Eric Hoffland with Hoffland Studios did an absolutely amazing job capturing all the special moments the day of our wedding. The pictures tell the story and hold so many precious memories. Eric is so much fun to work with. I love that he is so creative with his photography. It's obvious that he loves what he is doing and it shows in his work. I actually just picked up our wedding album and I can't put it down! It's like I'm getting married all over again everytime I look at the album. I couldn't be more pleased with the work done by Hoffland Studios!

Eric really takes pride in his work and is passionate about capturing the moment. We found him punctual, creative, funny and overall able to bring beauty and class to an amazing day. He captured the moments and worked the room to get everyone. It was a great experience and if you see his work on his website, you can see he is talented.
Overall, his creativity and ability to capture the best shots makes him a professional above any other of the photographers we interviewed. Further, he delivered and was willing to go to great lengths, like inviting us to meet in New York City, to capture engagement shots. Amazing wouldn't you agree?
Thank you Eric!

It's been one year since Hoffland shot my wedding and engagement photos. I want to hang so many photos up in our house, since they are so unique. Our engagement shots are unique - not just us sitting around in matching shirts. We used the Hotel Galvez and the beach as our backdrops. Even though Galveston beach isn't gorgrous like other beaches, Hoffland colored our photos in such a way that made the beach beautiful.

I cannot stress how important wedding photos are, it happens once and photos and video are all you have to relive the moment and share it with others. Our package was expensive, but services were provided for 10 hours on the wedding day, engagement shoot, meetings and album production. You get what you pay for - most of our shots were amazing and our album is sleek and fun at the same time.

I set aside time before the wedding to do bridal shots, since my makeup and hair were already done. Eric chose the location where to do shots based on lighting, it just so happened he liked the lighting in my hotel room's bathroom (sounds strange..) however, I have wonderful shots from it. The largest bridal shot I framed in our home, is from one of the bathroom shots ;)

Our photos were featured in the magazine Houston Brides, it was fun for our friends and family to recognize us. This wouldn't have been possible without photos by Hoffland Studios.

My only disappointment was that some of the shots I wanted were over-exposed so I didn't have everything on my list.

If you want photos that are UNIQUE, albums that are high quality and can afford it, I highly recommend Hoffland Studios.

I absolutely loved my pictures, Eric did a wonderful job and EVERYONE who has ever seen our photographs comments on how great they are! He is a master at the photojournalistic style and the pictures all end up looking like magazine shots! The only complaint I have is that he does try to sell you a lot of extras and I personally felt pressure from him. Other than that, he was great and I would highly recommend him to anyone!

My wife and I used Eric for our wedding a year ago at Royal Oaks Country Club and he simply did an amazing job! He not only captured all the classic shots one would want from his or her wedding, but he also incorporates a contemporary element to enhance the overall look and feel. We strongly recommend Eric and Hoffland Studios for any important event and know he will exceed your expectations!

We used Eric for both my bridal portraits and our wedding photography. He has a very artistic style of photography and captured many sweet moments from our big day. When our pictures were posted after the wedding, our friends were blown away by how gorgeous they were, especially thanks to Eric's editing and post-effects. He has a very loose style of direction and tries to keep the mood very light and upbeat. If anything, I would probably have preferred a bit more explicit direction and feedback from him during the portraits as I sometimes felt nervous in front of the camera.

Overall, we were very pleased with the beautiful outcome and I would definitely recommend Eric to any friend.

Hoffland Studios does amazing work with photography. The quality of the pictures and the moments captured are priceless.

eric and maddy are phenomenal to work with during your event or session! they have a great balance of professionalism and friendliness, and they make you feel at ease when they are capturing your moment. They are punctual and reliable for the big day (which is a must criteria for every bride!). Their vision and talent translate beautifully in their photos. The pictures are fabulous, and they make sure to get all of the shots you asked for. You probably will not find better in Houston. Although, when they get busy, they get busy! and that's the reason for the one mark down. I waited for a month to see my pictures, when the contract said the proofs would be available 2 weeks after the client's event. I was a little frustrated with this, especially since 3 other brides I knew from the greater houston area who had the same wedding date as me but different vendors had their wedding pictures uploaded onto facebook before I had even had a chance to see mine, but when I expressed my concerns eric was very understanding and had our pictures up within 24 hrs after the 1 month mark and my corresponding email.

Please DO NOT RUIN your wedding experience by using this photographer!!! Dealing with Eric was THE SINGLE MOST FRUSTRATING relationship I've had in my wedding and overall as a customer! I believe he was an average photographer, but he was unorganized, unprofessional, and absolutely RUDE! He emailed me a month before my wedding asking me the date of ceremony and was afraid he double-booked! Who does that?!? 2 days before my wedding he changed my package by being the only photographer (although my package included an additional photographer). He lied and told me someone else would be there (after having a screaming match on the phone), but the second photographer only took pics as I walked down the aisle (less than 2 min) and those pictures were not even available on my gallery. He posted my gallery 2 weeks later after SEVERAL emails from me. He was 2 months late ordering my photo album and then refused to compensate me for any of his mistakes. He argued with my wedding coordinator and was overall VERY difficult to deal with for everyone. I can't even continue writing about all the problems we've had with him. We ordered the 2nd most expensive package, but 2 days before the wedding he went on to say how inadequate this package was and like a used-car salesman pressured me to spend an additional $1,000. Pictures are very important and I'm so sad we went with this man! Thank God we have a great video!

In response to your reply, I am sad as well about the experience, but that's not news to you. I expressed my frustrations several times and you failed to make adjustments. I did not experience the "consistently exceptional service."
I placed the order on June 14th (you said it was a 6-week turnaround). You emailed me on 10/01 to say my album was finished. That is over 15 wks later! That is not "delivery before promised deadline." Please ask your attorney to stop the phone calls, emails, and letters. I will not remove my posts or filter the truth!

Hoffland Studios responded with the following comments:

Lauren,

After reading your review, my first reaction is sadness. I’m sorry you are so unhappy because I take great pride in consistently offering my clients exceptional service. I am disappointed that your comments contain unfair and untrue assertions. Shame on you for your deceitful comments regarding my sobriety, especially after the time and effort I put into making your wedding album spectacular and it was delivered to you before the promised deadline.

The pictures say it all: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/1ipaqgzlrz30z4e/_XyJtjv15J.
