Choosing Ed to be our wedding photographer was hands down the best (and easiest) choice we made. From day one, Ed was completely professional and easy to work with. He made a big effort to get to know us as a couple and even spent extra time with us during the engagement photo... Read More session to make sure we got all the shots we wanted! My husband and I are both camera shy, but thanks to Ed, we felt comfortable by our wedding day. Ed was able to capture the genuine emotion of the day with his unique vision, and we are so happy with how our photos turned out. Not only is Ed talented, but he is also incredibly kind, trustworthy, and hardworking. He was very easy to communicate with and was also super responsive throughout the whole process. Thank you Ed for everything - we will treasure our photos for a lifetime!

My wife stumbled upon Ed as we were searching for a photographer for our wedding. Believe me when I say that you will not regret your decision when choosing Ed. Not only is he passionate about his work, but he will also pour his heart and soul into making this one of the most... Read More memorable event (regardless of what it is) of your life. He's very diligent every single step of the way and his communication style is excellent. He delivers only the best quality pictures to you and they really epitomized his talents as a photographer.

Edward is fantastic! He takes all the stress out of having your photos taken and the end result is beautiful photographs. He's upfront and open from the get go and really works hard to get to know you as a couple to make sure you're getting exactly what you want. I'm a... Read More photographer myself so I'm very particular when it comes to the quality of pictures, how they are framed and what they show in the end. My wife and I ended up choosing Edward because not only is he extremely easy and delightful to work with (as well as being a genuine great guy) his photographs are fantastic in every aspect. Not only is the quality there, but he takes risks and uses his creative instincts to provide you with pictures that tell a story, captures a moment, or embodies a feeling that you will now remember forever. Organized, professional, easy to work with and services were provided at a great price. Can't recommend Ed enough!

Ed is the best!

Reviewed on 1/16/2016 Hannah H

My husband and I loved working with Ed. From the first meeting we had with him we had a good feeling and he was very easy to talk to. He scoped out locations ahead of the wedding and sent us a preview so we could choose where to take photos before the wedding day. He was very... Read More generous with his time for our engagement session. On the day of the wedding he was very professional, put anxious family members at ease and once the ceremony started we hardly noticed him (in a good way). He took great photos - both the posed portraits and candid shots. We got over 200 within a week after the wedding and the rest of them within two months. The value of our package was awesome and our experience with Ed was the best. We wholeheartedly recommend hiring him!

Ed is amazing!!!

If you want to have stunning wedding photos and enjoy the experience of working with your photographer, then talk to Ed!!!!!!! Looking back, the three things I want to highlight most is how Ed is 1) Relational, 2) Ridiculously skilled, and 3) Highly responsive and... Read More accommodating. 1) We first met up with Ed over coffee in NYC (he traveled to meet us). In addition to getting to know his work, we learned more about him and vice versa. Ed was genuinely interested in my husband and my story, so we met up another time to talk about our relationship and what's important to us, which helped Ed know what to focus on during the wedding and engagement shoot. I appreciate how much Ed values the engagement shoot because it really was an opportunity for us to grow comfortable in front of the camera and with him behind it. Ed learned when we needed guidance for posed shots and when we should just be natural and let the candids roll :) 2) His pictures are stunning. Every time I look back at our engagement or wedding photos, I am mind blown. Seriously! My friends have raved about his work, and they've told me their friends have somehow seen our pictures on social media and say that ours have been the best e.ment/wedding pictures they've seen so far. Ed captures candids, detailed shots, portraits, etc. so, so well. Please look through his pictures! 3) Ed is proactive about maintaining solid communication throughout the process and responds instantly to all questions. He checks in to make sure he has all the logistics down; he sends you sneak peek photos soon after each event; and he keeps you updated on when all the photos will be ready. Not only is Ed responsive, but he is also really accommodating. He woke up at 3am to meet us for a sunrise engagement shoot, and he took more wedding pictures in a style I said I liked after looking at the engagement shoot photos. Ultimately, Ed really wants you to enjoy your wedding and leave you with pictures that capture the beautiful, exhilarating, and emotional moments that transpire throughout your special day.

Photographer first and foremost, accommodating, and timely

Reviewed on 10/29/2015

Ed was an amazing photographer who we would both highly recommend. The three main reasons we really appreciated him were that he is a photographer first and foremost, he is incredibly accommodating, and he is timely in terms of responses and editing. 1. Photographer. On our... Read More engagement shoot in NYC, we happened to walk past an interesting alcove with bold red curves. Ed spontaneously stopped us and asked us to pose in front of it. These shots turned out beautiful and ended up gracing the cover of our engagement album. It was clear to me that Ed wasn't just a “wedding photographer” who churned out the same poses in the same places for each couple, he was a photographer who happens to do weddings and do them well. 2. Accommodating. He admitted to us that isn't a morning person, but he still got up at 3am on a Saturday morning to catch the sunrise with us. He also scouted out several spots for the engagement shoot on his own time for great locations. And though he didn't have a car, he made the trek out to our church in NJ to visit before the day of the wedding. 3. Timely. Everything he did was provided to us in a very timely manner. We got a sneak peek album of over 100 photos just two days after the wedding. We left for the honeymoon that afternoon, so we were able to relive that day on the flight.

I would likely have booked with Ed based on the quality of his work anyway. But when I met with him for the first time, his attention to detail and his relational approach to his work further assured me that he was the right photographer for my wedding. Ed was thoughtful... Read More and well prepared from start to finish. He even came out to Long Island (he resides in New Jersey) to scope out our venue and get our input so that he wouldn't be going in cold on the wedding day. The engagement shoot, which happened about a month prior to the wedding, was a lot of fun and his creativity was evident. Leading up to the big day, he communicated with us clearly to establish expectations and he deftly worked around little hiccups. Perhaps most importantly of all, we (and our family & friends) love the photos! He captured so many amazing candid shots that conveyed all the emotions of our day. Thanks Ed!

As the sun was setting, Edward noticed how beautiful it was outside on our venue, which had willow trees and a pond reflecting the sunset. We snuck out of the reception to take a picture a few pictures and I'm glad we did. Those pictures are some of my favorite pictures from my wedding. Edward has a great photographer's eye.
