Eric Crossan was absolutely amazing! Every aspect of the photography experience was great! As a bride, you know how everything can be so stressful while planning a wedding…especially a destination wedding thousands of miles away! Eric was more than helpful with everything. He knows a lot about the island and was so helpful while I was trying to plan our trip. He went above and beyond just being a photographer. If I asked him his opinion on anything, he was always throwing out suggestions for things to do like dinner, places to see, and beaches to go to.
He really eased my mind with being the one responsible to photograph the biggest day of our life! I had never met him until the actual wedding day, but I felt totally confident that he would do an outstanding job based on the recommendations I got and having multiple conversations with him before the wedding via phone and email. Every time I contacted him, he was totally available and very prompt. One time I talked to him on the phone around noon, and we discussed him putting some things together for me and sending me an email. Eric sent me an email with all the info within an hour. He is definitely a professional, get it done kind of guy. He did not procrastinate on anything which makes us crazy brides feel at ease.
The BEST part that made me feel so good about choosing Eric as a photographer was his flexibility. He gave us a personalized payment schedule which was very helpful with all of the other expenses. Also, during our stay at St. Croix, he was totally flexible when it rained the entire day of our wedding and we had to switch venues at the last minute. The new plan was to meet that afternoon at a resort. With all of the rain, one of the “shortcut” roads we attempted to take was totally flooded; we were unable to cross and had to find a different way. Needless to say, we were late and Eric had to wait on us in the lobby for almost an hour. Instead of being rude or upset that we were late, Eric was totally relaxed. He said, “No worries, I understand. We’re on island time. Things happen.” I was so relieved and impressed. Before, during, and after the ceremony, he was phenomenal. We got so many great shots! He was taking pictures of everything and everyone in the wedding party.
Eric and I had discussed a trash the dress event prior to the wedding. We met up at sunset the day after the wedding in our wedding clothes to do the session. Eric was amazing! He was so willing to do any shot that we wanted. He has wonderful ideas and was excited to do anything that we suggested as well. The best part about the day was getting into the ocean with our wedding clothes on and having wonderful pictures to have for the rest of our lives. This is how awesome Eric is, he actually got out in the water with us!! Yes, he took himself AND his expensive camera into the ocean! We were speechless and so thankful we found him to be our photographer!
Thank you Eric for giving us such precious memories for the most special day in our lives! We are so grateful! We look forward to getting you to take some more pictures for us one day!
