"I don’t take pictures for the sake of photographing. I take photographs to express what’s going on inside of me. Photography turned out to be the most handy tool." - Rumio Sato
My name is Edith Weiler. After twenty plus years as a cosmetologist, eleven years of salon ownership, I went back to school for photography in 1999. The two careers cross over in many interesting ways, making my creativity and interest in people still the most important part of what I do.
Some of my fine art photography is ready to hang and on display in my studio/reception space. By appointment only.
The commissioned side of my photography consists of Tintypes, several styles of portraiture, intimate weddings, high school seniors, pets, and candid event photography. I also photograph 3D art and some commercial photography. Several size restrictions due to studio space.

No matter what the event or occasion, my preference is to always meet with the client first to talk about what is desired, how it all works, then I can give a realistic quote for the session or event. At that time we go over the formalities, including a non-refundable booking and/or sitting fee deposit. Investment and style of my photography stay within guidelines and costs that fit nicely with different tastes and budgets.
Portraits can be done on location or in studio.
I cater to the intimate wedding with the smaller guest list. Each approach is as different as the client involved.
Event Photography - Anytime a group of people are together is an event-make it even more special by having it photographed. Candid shots and photojournalism is a must at any important event.
It's a real privilege to be asked into any close group of family and friends.
Photography keeps my psyche sharp, my mind engaged, and my soul humble, giving me regular outlets for my curiosity, my study of detail, and a natural examination of the world. What keeps all this alive is my desire to tell visual stories that give emotional messages.

My introduction to art appreciation started at an early age, with close family and friends who were extremely talented in many types of artistic expression, including music. My earliest memories of photography started when my grandmother would often show a hard-cover copy of National Geographic.
In it was an article about her first cousin, Dr. William Harding Longley, a botanist who, in 1926, partnered with Kodak to make an underwater camera that photographed the FIRST COLOR underwater image. This camera now rests in the archives at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington DC. An article describing this remarkable partnership can be found on National Geographic’s website.
