Hi Ed, From start to finish, our experience with you for our wedding photography was incredibly pleasant and easy! You are so great to work; you have great professionalism and skills. We are so pleased we chose you as the photographer for our big day–we’ve heard nothing but rave reviews of our photos since. You captured our magical weekend beautifully and our only regret is that we didn’t hire you for our rehearsal dinner as well! We want to thank you for capturing our wedding day and night so beautifully and allowing us to relive it over & over again through photos!

You and your entire crew were so phenomenal yesterday. Thank you so much for all your help and being so dedicated and helpful and cheerful and energetic. When the weather opened up out of nowhere, it was a shock and I didn't see how the day was going to turn around. But you guys made it so nice and put so much effort into getting us the shots we were hoping for despite the curveball. I just wanted to extend a big thank you and let you know how much we appreciated it.

Hi Edward, You and your assistant did a fantastic job with our wedding photography! We did not want conventional ”posed” photos and you completely understood our vision. You really captured the moment and we can feel the energy of the day when looking through the photos. You have a great photo journalistic approach and were so professional. We're really pleased with the photos and can't recommend you enough! Thank you again for capturing our day and understanding our vision!
