Don’t miss Eric McCallister Photography at the Maine Wedding Showcase this weekend. {Sunday, 7/31/2016}

Tell us a little bit about you & your business.
I began my photography career shooting rock climbers scaling cliffs throughout the U.S. By combining my passion for adventure with my love of art and design, I very quickly became obsessed with creating images that were not only “pretty” but conveyed a sense of “being there” and of the emotions felt by my subjects. Seeing and capturing fleeting moments from behind a lens proved to be a powerful addiction which led me to portraiture and wedding photography. On the wedding day, I strive to create images of a couple that show the spectrum of emotions felt on one of the most important days of their lives.

What makes your business different?
I’m a visual storyteller, along to re-tell your story through one-of-a-kind, creative imagery. I create these images using an approach that I call Creative Documentary. I work as unobtrusively as possible to capture events and emotions from a unique perspective, combining what I believe to be the best aspects of photojournalism and classic portraiture, but with a modern twist. My style is fluid. I don’t photograph off of lists (except for group portraits) or try to recreate other peoples’ pictures. I let your day unfold as it may, occasionally stepping “into the scene” to provide a bit of direction. In the end, you will receive a collection of photographs that are all your own, and a true representation of who you are.

Why do you like working at Hardy Farm?
Hardy Farm allows couples to host their own perfect rustic weddings. They are not locked into a cookie cutter wedding coordinated by a hotel ballroom planner. They have access to a variety of areas on-site… from the farm house to the tent to the barn, and so much more. Photographically, Hardy Farm offers a lot of diversity, too.
