Eric Hegwer Photography is Closed

by Eric Hegwer on 1 October, 2012

It is with a heavy heart that I write this post.

As of October 1, 2012, I am no longer working as a photographer.

I am still working hard for my previous clients to deliver them their photos and albums.

Thank you all for you patronage and support over the years. I’ve had the privilege of attending over 400 weddings, and participated in so many celebrations. I am grateful to all my clients over the years.

Engagement Picture Poses



by Eric Hegwer on 5 January, 2012

Tomorrow is my first bridal session of the year.  Heck, It’s my first shoot of the year, too, and I can’t wait to work at the incredible Laguna Gloria again.  I’ve been shooting bridals for years, and know all the tricks to get you to relax in front of the camera.  I know hundreds of poses to find the most flattering angles for you.   I know all the best photo spots, too.

But this year I’m adding something special to my shoots.  That je ne sais quoi that takes the pictures to the next level.  Something that makes you look at an image and just know that it was taken by Eric.

All throughout last year I began to prepare for this year.  It started during the typical wedding slow time in the late winter, when read Outliers: The Story of Success.  I was so inspired and motivated I bought and read and the rest of Malcolm Gladwell’s books. Mastery he says comes after 10,000 hours of a task.

10,000 hours? Thats 5 years of 40 hours a week (or 1,250 8-hour weddings)

But I had an ace up my sleeve. I was going to shoot 150 different couples over the course of the year, and with each one I evaluated everything: what time of the year, and even the time of the day was the shoot? What was the location they choose to have as their backdrop, and where were the best photo locations within that location? What did they wear, and even how did their bodies move?

I began to tweak my style, ever so slightly, heading in a different direction than I had been shooting in the past.

Now, this year, I’m excited to share that with you, and the rest of the world. Stay tuned. I think you are going to LOVE it.
