• Hello & Welcome to the Portrait Collections!

  • Portraits

    Hello! It's a pleasure to meet you and welcome to the portrait guide! Our philosophy is to treat photographs as art, to give you the best mix of great lighting and expressions but still make it look like a real photograph. I'll help you with planning the photoshoot to get the most out your photos.

  • What to Wear & Prep

    • Coordinate, but don't match (choose same tonal range)
    • Choose solid colors, and/or subtle patterns
    • Layer clothing, if the weather permits
    • Choose complementary colors to the background (for a park with greens: purple & reds work well)
    • Typically don't choose white unless it's an accent color (like a shirt under a jacket) or it's at a beach location
    • Make sure you come groomed, with nails clean, clothes pressed
    • Full session packages come with consulting so I'll give you feedback on your outfit choices
    • The process: When you book, I'll help you plan your photoshoot - pick the best timing and outfits for you so that you're prepared for the shoot. Right after the session, we'll pick the photos you like the most so I can start to edit the photos and get it delivered to you (usually within 2 weeks)

  • About Me

    Just a little more about me...

    Hi! My name is Ed and I believe there's a great picture in everyone! My goal is to get you the best possible picture for you. I've always be fascinated with how great pictures get created, and I'm excited to share this with you. I'm located in the San Francisco Bay Area, but can travel if needed. I've done portraits and weddings in Hawaii (3 times so far), Los Angeles, San Diego, Denver, Phoenix, Philippines, and Cancun -- you can view some of these on my website :)


    Great photographer who captured our family of 6 on camera with ease! With multiple young children, you have some limitations and he easily kept it fun, casual and candid so it was not work at all to help him capture great moments among our family members... we are very pleased with all of the photos from our shoot. Highly recommend!

    Wow. Ed is fantastic. I just wished he was around when I got married 20 years ago! We had him take fashion shots of my daughter. He is very professional yet easy-going.

    Stated simply, Ed is an individual with remarkable skills. 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. The results from this single photo shoot with Ed are stunning.

    Thank you again for making our dreams come true. It was
