  • My Style

    People have described my photos to be clean, modern, fashion inspired magazine style photos. And that's certainly what I strive for, something relevant to today's look, yet timeless, to make your day memorable and even hopefully better than what you had imagined. This is what I believe makes my photos different than others.

    I'm a photojournalist, portrait artist, fashion photographer, product photographer, and wedding photographer -- all in one day -- your day! I'm based in the San Francisco Bay Area, and am available for travel.

    Hi Ed!
    Wow! You continue to amaze me! I don't know anyone who has had their wedding photos, even in digital format, turned around so quickly. Your style, professionalism, and quality of work is quite impressive. Seriously, mind blowing.
    I can't Thank You enough. Again, my gratitude is endless.
    Sincerely,
    Liz

    Hi Carlo, 
    THANK YOU!!!!!!

    Thank you from the bottom of our heart for the wedding album. It arrived yesterday and it was more beautiful than we could have ever imagined. The finished product was so polished and professional looking. Thank you so much!! It’s a wonderful memory I will cherish for the rest of my life. And thank you deeply for the fancy album cover; it looks so awesome doesn’t it?? The CD cover looks so professional too. I am happy to provide a recommendation whenever you need it. We have been thoroughly happy with your professionalism. It was really great having you capture our special day.

    It also means a lot that we were able to help you reconnect with your family. The Philippines is such an amazingly beautiful country, you should go back again someday. If you do let me know, as mum has a house there, my parents travel there quite regularly. I’m going back in November as well, so it would be easy enough to meet up again.
    I do sincerely hope we meet again – whether it is in the US or the Philippines.
    Thanks again, and all the best for everything you do in the future. You’ve made me very happy. I love the album.
    Love and best wishes!

    Hello Ed,
    I have heard so many great comments about you as a photographer and these pictures you have posted show how talented you are. We appreciate your professionalism, patience and the time it took to drive up to Roseville. I also enjoyed reading your blog. I look forward to viewing more pictures and look forward to recommending you in the future. Thank you very much for being a part of Sarah and Alden's special day.
    With much appreciation!
    Jim and Anna

    Hey Ed,
    Forrest and I wanted to thank you for a great shoot yesterday. We saw the pictures and they are amazing! I can't thank you enough :)
    Patrycia

    Stated simply, Ed is an individual with remarkable skills.

    I had originally sought out a photographer to take professional photos as I'd accepted a CEO role earlier in the year and felt that it was time to improve my online image (starting with LinkedIn). I found Ed via a web search and felt Ed was the right man for the job after reviewing his portfolio.

    What I had no idea of however was what a wonderful individual he is and what an uplifting energy he has about him. With his positive demeanor and approach, Ed is able to gain an individual's trust (namely mine) and allow that individual to open up for some amazing photographic results. I am an extremely un-photogenic individual - just ask my wife and take a look through our myriad of family photos. The results from this single photo shoot with Ed are stunning.

    On this process as a whole - Ed was a fantastic. He was able to guide me through clothing choices, backgrounds, lighting types, and poses all based on my desired result: a professional but inviting image. Ed was able to well-articulate the rationale behind each choice leading one to (mistakenly) believe his choices and guidance were all "obvious". Furthermore, Ed's own effervescent personality set the stage for a very easy rapport and as importantly, a very positive and fun environment directly reflected in the resulting photographs.

    Ed's skills do not end at camera-point. After reviewing the photos it became evident that my 5 o'clock shadow was quite pronounced in the photos. Ed was quick to explain his ability to digitally soften this element of the images and turned-around a rough mock-up fast enough to quell my concerns and ultimately, provide final imagery with which I was extremely pleased.

    Without question, I have never in my life seen a better collection of photos of myself. It is Ed that deserves full credit for this. Ed made what for me was a very daunting task into something not only successful, but truly enjoyable. His light-hearted approach is well-reflected in the photograph captured.

    I would be more than happy to speak in detail to anyone who might have any questions at all regarding Ed, his process or his results. Please feel free to contact me directly greg.brinton@gmail.com

    Wow! Our Hawaii destination wedding photo is Ed Carlo's profile picture. What a compliment! This review is looooong overdue. My wedding was in 2013 and it has taken me only now to write a much deserved, well-thought out review.

    Carlo is hands down 100% committed to taking the best photos. As a testament to his commitment, during our shoot, he and his assistant, Desiree, both got into the ocean with us to capture the crashing waves and gorgeous Hawaiian scenery behind us. Not only that, he had his iPhone in his pocket while we were in the water and sadly, his phone broke but that didn't stop him from getting the perfect shot. By no means my husband and I are models, but going through our wedding photos, it certainly looked like our pictures could be on the cover of a magazine.

    I first heard about Ed Carlo through my sister, who is friends with him. After introductions via email, we had set up a time to meet in person so I could see samples of his work. I was already blown away by his work and we booked him immediately. Following that were an exchange of emails back and forth so he could get details about my wedding in Hawaii. He recommended a few colors and style of clothing to wear for our engagement and wedding photos (both in Hawaii). I really appreciated that he did that since we had no clue what we should have worn. I texted or emailed him photos of a few dresses I was planning to wear and he helped me pick the best dress that would capture perfectly on camera.

    Once we were in Hawaii, he and his assistant came to our hotel room promptly and took a look at our outfits for our engagement photos. My husband selected a royal blue collared shirt but Carlo recommended a lighter color - so we ALL went to Macy's and we got a shirt that we all liked. I have to admit, it was a great choice - we ended up getting white. Shortly after, we started to take our pictures and it felt as if we wandered around all of Waikiki. The pictures turned out amazing.

    The day of our wedding, Desiree and Carlo were punctual as usual. As most brides are, the bridal party and I were running behind. They were very accommodating. Desiree went off to shoot the groomsmen while Carlo went off taking pictures of my wedding dress, shoes, and candid shots of my bridal party getting ready. When the wedding ceremony began, they both didn't miss a beat. Capturing moments of nervousness, joy, love, excitement, and the celebration of family of friends.

    The photo book was elegant, beautiful, yet captured the island vibe we were looking for. Also, the downloadable images it a breeze to share via social media so the rest of our family and friends could virtually enjoy our wedding too.

    Ed Carlo is worth every penny and truly an investment. And his service doesn't end there. It's 2015, nearly 2 years since the wedding and I contacted him because for some reason I was unable to access the photos I downloaded onto my computer. Might be because my MAC is older. Carlo resent me the link to download my photos and I am downloading them now. I am thrilled he still had our photos on file, otherwise the rest of the memories that were not included would have been lost forever.

    Kim and Ronnel

    Oh wow Mr. Ed those pictures look amaZingggggg and there's still more to come. My parents are speechless. Thank you again for making our dreams come true. It was a pleasure having you as our photographer!

  • About Me

    Hello! I believe there's a great picture in all of us. And I'll make that happen for you! :) I got into photography when I was about to get married and had to hunt for a photographer. The photographer we chose inspired me to create work in the lines of people instead of landscape. Since then, many photographers have inspired me -- I take what I learn from them and apply it to my pictures. My style is natural, clean, and crisp beautiful looking portraits with a hint of fashion -- you can think of it as an eclectic mix of the what's best in the best styles of photojournalism, detail, and classic and lifestyle portraiture. For weddings, I love capturing all the moments that the couple experiences which remind me of my very own wedding. In portraits, I love to capture the essence of person.

    P.S. Most people know me as Ed and my family knows me as Carlo mainly to distinguish between me and my dad whose name is also Ed. I'll respond to either name :)
