My husband and I got married in July and Ed did an absolutely stunning job. My sister had Ed as her photographer as well so we knew we would work well with him and the quality would be fantastic. I had a morning wedding with a slightly unusual timeline and Ed worked with me... Read More until everything was done, regardless of the number of hours actually in the package. He, his nephew and his wife came and his nephew was a second photographer and his wife acted as coordinator. All the of the shots are unbelievable. I highly recommend Ed and his family because they treat YOU like family.

Ed and his family are absolutely amazing! We couldn't be happier that we decided on him. Ed is incredibly personable and took what could have been a stressful and frustrating process and made it easy. The first time we met he immediately put us at ease. He really worked... Read More with us on our budget and we were able to customize to get what we wanted without breaking the bank. He was incredibly easy to work with and generous with his time and we were honestly very touched by how kind and considerate he was throughout the entire process. We did both our engagement photos and wedding photos with him and he was a joy to work with the entire time. He put us at ease so instead of being stressful taking pictures was actually fun. The day of the wedding was no exception. Ed and his team (especially Cassie) were just wonderful! They blended right in and we got so many gorgeous shots! They captured absolutely everything and the pictures were just what we wanted and more. They have an excellent eye for photos and had great ideas for shots and you can really see the professional quality in the pictures. They were a blast to work with and really made things fun. My guests also loved him and we got a lot of nice comments about him and his team. Getting a disk with all the pictures and printing rights is also a really great advantage since you get to keep all of the pictures and you can print however many you want without having to decide all at once. It's also great to get more than one photographer since you can get different perspectives of the same event which is a great help. The whole process was very all inclusive and stress free which is amazing. Ed and his family are just the nicest people and we are so happy that they were there for us on our special day. They really added to the day not only through the amazing pictures but also by just being so nice and fun to work with. I'd recommend Ed highly to anyone!

I had the best experience working with Ed. He was there from the start for engagement photos to rehearsal to the wedding. Ed and his family were so professional yet at the same time so personable with everyone. The day of the wedding he was with us from 8am (with 6 crazy... Read More girls) through the ceremony to the reception which didn't end until midnight. He captured every moment of our Big Day, from the pictures we requested to the action shots of our friends and family at the reception. We received all of our pictures within a month and ordered our prints (which we had within a week of ordering them) and they are gorgeous. I highly recommend Ed Vaflor for anyone looking for a fun, energetic, and just all around great photographer and person!!!

We LOVED every moment of working with Ed, his wife, and his nephew. Ed is organized and capable, our first meeting we felt totally comfortable with our unusual requests (my husband and I do a lot of stage combat, and wanted pictures with the wedding party sword fighting). He... Read More arrived early on the day of, and because things had gotten a bit behind, he ended up staying a smidge past the point we'd arranged.

Ed and his family are absolutely wonderful. Ed's photos are beautiful and he takes a lot! His son also came along as a second photographer and his wife was an amazing assistant. She made sure every picture I had previously told them I wanted was taken. She also ensured my dress... Read More was laying nicely on the ground so you could see the details in the train. Ed worked all day, from the morning when I was getting ready until almost all the guests had left the reception that night. I could not believe the abundance of photos provided, I was so excited looking through them all. He did a beautiful job and I love the effects he applied to some of the pictures, black and white, different color tones, etc. You get full copyrights to all the pictures when he sends them to you on discs, so you are able to share with all your loved ones. He also offers prints at an additional cost. And they all had such a great personality, it didn't feel like a stranger at your wedding. Ed even jumped in the photo booth with us for some great memories! Best part for me: I was able to get a very high volume of amazing, high quality photographs and help contribute to a local family business at the same time. Thank you Vaflor Family!!!

I wanted two photographers to capture our wedding ceremony and reception. With Ed, he gave us exactly what we wanted and more. Ed came with his whole family which included multiple photographers (I think 4, there were so many!) and his wife coordinated the shots to make sure I... Read More got all my Pintrest pictures. The photos turned out wonderful and there were SO MANY! The price could not be beat either!! But the best thing about Ed Vaflor and his family is that they are so personable, kind, and accommodating. They were able to organize our large families for group shots quickly (when we only had 20 minutes for formal pictures at the Catholic church). Ed is the best!

Ed and his family are so wonderful and the photographs we received after our wedding were awesome.

Ed and his family provided exceptional photography leading up to and on our wedding day. From our first meeting I understood that Ed was passionate about photography and it shows in the final product. His wife Amy acts as a coordinator, ensuring each requested photo is taken and... Read More helped us stay on schedule throughout the day. Having two photographers throughout the day enabled Ed to capture all aspects of the wedding, even when me and my husband were at different locations getting ready. By the end of the reception Ed and his family felt more like a part of the guest list than just my photographer- however he never stopped taking photos. I would highly recommend hiring this team to capture your special day.

Very Easy to Work With

Reviewed on 12/29/2012 Ashley P

We used Ed for our October wedding at Graystone Winery and he was very easy to work with. He's very easy to communicate with, responds to emails very quickly and efficiently and has a great eye for wedding photographer. He's new(er) to the wedding photography business but... Read More don't let that scare you off. He's very talented at what he does and has a great eye for photography. His son also helps to photograph your day and his wife will help coordinate the photos and make sure any shots you want are not missed and also makes sure things run smoothly throughout the day (which is very helpful). His prices were EXTREMELY affordable for the value of what we received and the amount of time he provides on your day. Photographers are pricey and yes, you want to make sure you have great pictures to remember your big day by forever, but you don't want to go broke in the process. Ed and his wife have great personalities which make working with them a fun experience. They're funny and on your wedding day, it's nice to be working with people like them. My husband and I genuinely enjoyed the fact that throughout a good portion of the wedding, we forgot we were even being photographed, Ed and his son just "blended in" so well. We didn't feel like we had to stop and pause all the time for shots; we could just enjoy our evening and Ed would capture all of the moments as they happend.

Great value and experience. We went with package where Ed would be there for our rehearsal dinner and with the prep before the wedding through the reception. He was there from the second we started getting ready until the reception was winding down. Very professional and... Read More respectful. He met us a few times before the wedding to discuss what we wanted from him (everything from his dress to what photos we wanted).

The CD had over 700 photos!
