We all know that the economy can go through some hard times, and be somewhat reminiscent of past recessions. However, as people cut back on non-essential little luxuries here and there, one constant remains: weddings. People don’t tend to just stop getting married due to a poor economy, nor should they! So, in an industry that keeps on going through thick and thin, what are some things to expect for the future, and what is really necessary to still make that wedding day memorable and...Read more
While some of us were fortunate enough to be born as extroverts, not everyone feels the same way. For a good chunk of the population, any number of the typical wedding day traditions can inspire anxiety and existential dread. This day is all about you, yes, but does that mean all the attention has to be on you as well? FROM VOWS TO CHITCHAT, WHICH REMAINS SACRED?

RAVES, REVIEWS, AND New York City - Metro WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER RECOMMENDATIONS

Anjali & Neal

Hi Ed, Choosing you as our photographer was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. The level of dedication and precision you exhibits when taking pictures is unparalleled. During our engagement shoot, you were upbeat and excited the whole day, even when we became tired (it's a long day!). You knew the best places to take pictures and exactly how to catch the light to make each shot perfect. As we were walking through Central Park, you would stop us randomly because you were ALWAYS looking for a great picture. You brings a lot of joy to your work, which is inspiring. Leading up to the wedding, You were incredibly professional and always made yourself available, whether for a venue walk-through or just a call to figure out details. We had two days of wedding events and you was so excited to be part of both - you was literally everywhere taking pictures and documenting our wedding weekend, but without us even noticing you being there. You were also full of great ideas for where to stand to get the best view of our venues. You also gives a lot - you doesn't care how long the day takes, you are there the entire time. Our wedding day was incredibly long, but you was happy and energetic all day long - you made our families smile and worked to get the best out of each of our family members. And when we received the pictures, we were blown away. They are all so incredibly beautiful. You really captured the best moments of our day without us looking posed. You took so many great shots, it's hard to choose which ones we want to include in our album. We are so grateful for your amazing services and will highly recommend you for any event. Your energy and sheer passion for your work was evident throughout our wedding. Thank you, Edward!!

Geoff and I had the absolute best day ever in large part to you. Aileen, you are seriously incredible at what you do. You can command a crowd when needed and then set up the most romantic shot seconds later. You were so calming, especially in the morning when I started to get a bit worried about the timeline. You know what it takes to get the job done and you're able to get everyone's attention and focus without being rude. You were a miracle worker with my nephews (they are quite the handful). I was so anxious the week of the wedding about being able to do our first look outdoors and take a couple pictures outside and you were so reassuring leading up to the day. And lo and behold - the weather ended up working out so well. Aileen, you were one of the first vendors we booked and we are so glad we did. Our wedding day was seriously the most special day of my life and it was great having you be such a huge part of it. It's incredible that you get to be part of people's most special day weekend after weekend. You and Ed run a fantastic business, you're able to be so professional and on top of everything and yet be so fun and natural to be around. Thanks again for all your work. You and Ed and your team are just so fantastic and we are so so thankful we had you as our photographer.
