Experienced shutterbug Edward Weiland artistically captures sitters in a free-flowing combination of formal poses and photojournalistic candid shots. During one-hour shoots in his studio or on location, Edward puts families, kids, and newborns at ease with his laid-back manner, and he also welcomes four- or eight-legged furry friends to outdoor sessions. For the most striking effect, Edward suggests that groups wear matching outfits such as jeans and black sweaters or color-coordinated Mexican wrestling masks, as well as bringing props with which to personalize the shot. After the session, clients can pick one or more of their favorite proofs to print with a password-protected online gallery. After airbrushing away imperfections from faces, Edward produces one 8”x10" image suited for framing and three 4”x6" or 5”x7” prints ready to be slipped into holiday cards or traditional New Year’s Eve ransom notes.
Edward Weiland Photography
As a youngster, Edward Weiland loved to visit the Sierra Nevada Mountains and Yosemite National Park with his family—always with his camera in hand. These experiences became the foundation of his style, a combination of fine-art photography and free-flowing photojournalism peppered with traditional poses. The key to Edward’s success is his high level of energy, which not only makes him quick on the draw when he’s hunting for candid shots, but also helps him establish a rapport with kids and families. However, he can also maintain a calm disposition when he needs to, as when he’s taking portraits of newborns as they slumber in their mothers' arms or yawn in their Russian literature professor’s face.
Often Edward’s images contain clear, crisp colors with slightly heightened saturation to make them more memorable. It’s these tones newlyweds will see if they hire Edward to make for them a custom fine art wedding book, each of which is designed by a graphic artist and hand made in Italy.
