Lifestyle Wedding Photography:
A wedding is a perfect event to use lifestyle photography.
It allows bride and groom to feel more comfortable around the camera and
involves everyone that is part of the event. It also leaves bigger room for the photographer to create special moments and capture them as casual,
perfect images. It also helps the just married couple document the most special
day of their lives in a way that every time they visit the pictures, they will
relive every instant. That right there is the main objective of a Lifestyle
Wedding Photographer. Weddings are full of emotions! From happiness to tears of
joy; laughter, nervousness, every single feeling is shown throughout the day.
Capturing the chronological story of your event enriched by all these emotions
in every image, make your wedding pictures the most cherished treasure of that
The history of wedding photography starts with traditional
style approach. This is the timeless style that you've probably seen time and
time again offered by local and international photographers. The hallmark of
this style is carefully posed photographs of the key moments. Benefits: The
traditional photographers usually use a planned "shot list", which
means you'll get all the important images. The photographer virtually becomes a
"wedding official," directing the wedding party and guests according
to a pre-planned list. The wedding album look is attractive, and timeless.
Contemporary style also known as photo reportage and
documentary approach, photojournalism has become a very popular style, used by
many best wedding photographers, features a series of candid photos covering
the entire day. Benefits: wedding photojournalism gives you a series of unique
images aimed to "tell the story" of your wedding day. There is no
pre-planned "shot list," only the photographer's instincts; images
are unpredictable capturing the beauty of the moment.
Illustrative style: The illustrative style photographers place the subjects in certain settings to take advantage of good lighting or backgrounds. Then, once the scene is set, the couple and their party are free to be themselves, and this results in a more spontaneous feel. Unlike the photojournalistic style, illustrative photography takes advantage of the photographer's artistic judgment rather than capturing a series of moments. This style often used by the best engagement and pre wedding photographers. However, when it comes to decisive moments such as in proposal photography, this style can not be used.
Expectant mothers & newborn portraits
expecting! Having a baby is an exciting time. You feel like the day that your
baby will arrive cannot get here soon enough and then, before you know it, your
pregnancy experience is over. How will
you remember all of the miraculous little details? Those fluttering kicks and tumbling rolls,
the glow in your skin and the joy in your smile, the way everyone in your life
looks at you in that special way. A
maternity portrait session is the perfect way to capture all of the wonder and
preserve it forever.
I have always loved
photographing babies, especially newborns.
I felt it was such an honor to be able to capture their tiny fingers,
toes, nose, etc. during a time in their lives that goes by so amazingly fast. I also felt it was a great gift to create
beautiful images the parents would cherish forever. So many of my newborn portrait clients had
expressed how much they cherished these portraits, how quickly their babies
outgrew that teeny, tiny stage and how happy they were to have portraits to
remind them of that sweet time. Experience has taught me that we could pose sleeping
newborns and from that iSp2 Newborn Portraits was born.

Families are our most prized possession. Nothing is more rewarding than to deliver a beautiful wall portrait of an entire family to loving parents and grand parents. Let Ed turn your loved ones into a work of art.
An individual portrait tells a story of its subject. Ed had come to love all his clients – and where there is love there is beauty. Ed finds that beauty in everyone he photographs.
Although we regard all of our photography as art, we are beginning a special line of art portraits. These unusual pieces portray your loved ones in a beautiful way you may never have imagined and make spectacular art prints.
Corporate Work and Headshots
Corporate Work and Headshots
Nothing is more important than a first impression. A potential client's decision to do business with you will often be based in large part on the sense of your competence, professionalism and demeanor created by your photographer.
Ed's corporate headshots are subtly crafted based on the individual branding of your business.
Simple as they may seem at first glance, creating a very effective corporate headshots requires a sophisticated photographer capable of understanding the branding of your business, and of translating that into a visual message. Ed always shoots his own corporate headshots, and never delegates the responsibility to other photographers. Most images are created digitally, and most fees can be quoted as simple flat rates.
We encourage you to compare Ed's corporate headshots side by side with any other photographers you are considering (always be sure to ask to specifically see a portfolio of business headshots) and ask yourself who you would most like to do business with based on the photography.
What is an Editorial Photographer?
If a picture is worth a thousand words, photography is the art of composing those thousand words in a visual narrative, whether a single image or with a series of several images.
While the advent of compact digital cameras has expedited the process of rendering pictures in camera, editorial photography remains a specialized domain. Expertise with photographic techniques and strong conceptualization skills are the core strengths of editorial photographers. An editorial photographer should be able to convey a story through pictures.
Fashion & Model Porfolios
Our job as photographers is to not only take a technically beautiful image, but also to coach our subjects in order to bring the best out of them. Ed has always considered the job twofold, one part photographic technique and the other a flurry of constant photographer banter. The proper use of both allows the photographer and subject to capture a photograph that both people can be proud of.
Are you looking for a photographer to shoot photos of your teenage daughter or son? Do you want your son or daughter to pursue a career in photographic modeling? Do you need photos for her portfolio? Are you a teen hoping to break into modeling, or are you looking to update your model portfolio? Looking for a photographer to create a comp card for your photographic modeling debut? Or do you just want to have fun and give photographic modeling a try?
Whether you are an established professional model, just looking to update your portfolio, or even if you have never modeled before but just want to give it a try, you should contact Ed to photograph your model portfolio.
And if you do have that something special, rest assured that Ed will recognize it and with your permission, submit your photos from your model portfolio to magazines and modeling agencies. Ed's rates for teen model portfolio photography are very affordable and he can also provide professional hairstylists and makeup artists if you require their services.
The Celebration of the Quinceañera
Quinceañera, sometimes called fiesta de quince años, fiesta
de quinceañera, quince años or simply quince, is the celebration of a girl's
fifteenth birthday in parts of Latin America and elsewhere in communities of
people from Latin America. This birthday is celebrated differently from any
other birthday, as it marks the transition from childhood to young womanhood.
The celebration, however, varies significantly across countries, with
celebrations in some countries taking on, for example, more religious overtones
than in others.
The Quinceañera celebration has all of the grandeur of a
large church wedding, and begins with the Misa de accion de gracias
(thanksgiving Mass). The girl being honored ("quinceanera") arrives
in church dressed in a fancy full-length gown, usually white or pale pink in
color, together with a matching headdress and an elaborate bouquet. She is
accompanied by her parents, godparents and members of her "Court",
consisting of several young women called damas (maids of honor) and several
young men called chamberlains (escorts).
At the conclusion of the mass, the quinceanera places her
bouquet on the altar and the girl's family and friends pass out small
commemorative favors to the guests in attendance. All then proceed to a banquet
hall for a festive dinner and dance reception.
After a sumptuous feast, the music and dancing begins. The
first dance is a waltz danced with the quinceanera and her father. Next,
members of her Court are introduced and then the godparents have their first
dance. The dance floor is then opened for all guests, with men taking turns
dancing with the quinceanera.
Nostalgia-What Is Left Behind
The human experience is an accumulation of multiple narratives, revealed in the journey, and characterized by the interplay between the present and the past. This exchange is facilitated by the mechanism called nostalgia, and this thing gives us a sense of belonging by connecting us to our common humanity, and by reconnecting the here and now to the then and there. We satisfy this sentimental longing for the past, with the memories that we hold, with the dreams that we have; with things that we come across in our journey and with the photographs that we treasure. Images, which can act like triggers activate memories in a vivid recollection of a time or place, or of sentiments associated with happiness or sadness with melancholy or a sense of loss. Objects like the Airmen’s uniform used in this series of images cause meditation and contemplation on the physical and transcendent experience of a time and place. These universal themes related to memory, relationships, belief systems, societal constructs, and the observation of the human condition, provide the source for the exploration of a fundamental quality of the photograph.
This body of work mediates the experience of time and space. Like a gravestone these photographs with a sense of romanticism, present nostalgia as an empirical testimonial to time. Methodically constructed scenes, each frame’s undeniable serendipity challenges the observer to question what constitutes present and past. The quiet and timeless qualities of the images make the familiar and the everyday space foreign, like a landscape begging to be explored. The camera suspends time so that belief can also be suspended. Creating an environment with lighting, atmosphere, and objects, settings, these images render the subject immobile for the viewer to examine, like a fastened down laboratory specimen. These photographs have obscured locations, however they lure the viewer to a familiar but foreign place. The images are assembled to offer a glance into daydreams and recollections employing seemingly distant narratives. This collection of photographs reflects the passage of time and an unmistakable association with what is left behind.
