Dear Eric and Maddy,

Jason and I wanted to take a moment to thank you again so much for the wonderful work that you do. We have received so many compliments on our engagement, bridal, and wedding portraits, and we know it is because of the skill and talent that you possess.

After we got married, within a 5 month time frame Jason and I had lost three of our grandparents.

I can not tell you what it means to look back at those pictures and remember that day, because it is more special than you can imagine. For many of my family, including Jason and myself, it was the last time that we were able to spend time with our grandparents before they passed away.

Again, I can not put into words how grateful I am for the moments you captured..They will be some of the fondest memories that we have of our grandparents.

Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts.

Rachel and Jason Everett

To be fair, Hoffland takes good pictures, but the rest of our experience was disappointing. We primarily chose him to shoot our wedding based on the beautiful albums advertised on his website (although if you follow them over time you will see he changes the dates of the albums to make them look more recent). However, our album looked like the pictures were just thrown together on an all-white background, with little to no evidence of any effort. There were no interesting backgrounds, cropping, or photo manipulations that are obvious on the albums he displays, even though we specifically requested these things (he requests input regarding how we want the album to be laid out, but he obviously doesn??t pay much attention to these requests). The last couple of pages had 8-10 pictures crammed together on a single page, as if he was running out of space and time and just didn??t want to deal with it anymore. We tried to change the album into something more like those on his website (based on our own revisions), and he charged us an additional 50% of the album cost (>$500). And the album is only part of the disappointing experience. From day 1 (as soon as he had our deposit), his communication was dismal. My husband and I would place bets as to whether or not e-mails or phone calls would be returned. Often weeks would go by before we would hear back (if we even obtained a response). While the wedding photos were good, they did not cover several things we specifically asked them to shoot, and approximately 25% of our guests were not documented either at all or outside of the few posed family photos. This included immediate family and several key players in the wedding. And there was at least an hour during the reception when they weren??t doing anything at all. I could go on and on? There are a lot of very good photographers out there. Hoffland is not worth the hassle.

Pros: Good photos

Cons: Difficult to work with; final product is poor quality

I just had to take a moment to say you both "worked your tails off" to capture Caroline and Jason's Day. You were fantastic to be with, work with, and were not obtrusive to the wedding festivities while still capturing the precious moments. As mother of the bride, I cannot thank you enough!

Jason and Caroline invited us and his parents to dinner last night.....they leave today for their honeymoon to the Ocean Club in the Bahamas. They were so pleased with your work and looking forward to reliving the day through your pictures.

Sincerely,
Martha Morris

We ordered and paid for a portrait on canvass mattboard and Hoffland's delivered a portrait printed on photopaper on mattboard. When we took it to a frame shop, the framer informed us of the deception and suggested we go back to Hoffland's to have it corrected. Two months had passed and Hoffland refused to correct the error. Time had never seemed that important to Hoffland before since he never delivered at the promised time. We had paid for a canvass portrait and have a receipt for that, but this is not what he delivered. Dealing with Eric Hoffland has been a real disappointment especially since he is an Aggie. He is a very talented photographer, but not an honest businessman. We will not recommend Hoffland Studios.

To begin, I will say that this is a great photographer, but that is not all it is about. If you have problems getting the final product then what it the point! I have faced an on going issue with this company for years. They sent me albums that contained the wrong pictures that I asked for, and they promised to replace them if I sent the albums back that I did not want. I did that, and six months later I called to follow up on the new albums. They stated that they were no longer going to replace the albums, did not have my other albums anymore, and were not going to refund my money. To also show the lack of reliability and professionalism of Hoffland Studios, you can search OFFICIAL REVIEWS under their former name of Third Wheel Productions, and you will see that they have a history of customer complaints. "AGGIES DON'T LIE, CHEAT, or STEAL," but this Aggie ran business does!
