Hi! I'm Ed.
I grew up in Italy on Lake Como, but I've been calling Southern California my home for the last 9 or so years. I currently live in Orange County with my wife Shanan and my occasionally bite-y black cat, Fangs.
I love cooking, painting, pizza (stereotypical enough?), avocados, horror movies/books, boba tea, and I have more clothes with cats on them than any man should ever own.
I could come up with some catchy stuff to try and convince you to book me, but the simple truth is that I love capturing the love between two people (that, and I get to eat wedding cake on the reg, which I'm not gonna lie is totally a bonus.)
Not everyone is ready and willing to open up their relationship to a complete stranger though! That's why my main goal is to get you to trust me and see me simply as a friend with a camera. I want to get to know you and for you to get to know me. I don't want you to feel like you have to put on a mask when you're dealing with me, I want you to feel like you can show me the real you. There's no better you than that.
If you think we'd be a good fit get in touch! I'd love to hear more about you two and what you're planning. You're getting married in a warehouse downtown? Awesome. Eloping in Yosemite? I'm already there. Whatever you have in mind I want to hear about it, so that together we can tell your story in a way that is meaningful to you.

some testimonials for those who love review (and who doesn't?)
"We just wanted to take a moment to say thank you for photographing our wedding! We’ve been to a few where the photographer was just completely in the way and so annoying and we felt like you were there whenever we looked around to request a photo but never felt like you were in the way. We will definitely sing your praises to any friends in need of a photographer and if we ever need photos again you’ll be our first call! Thank you for all of your work and being such a great addition to the wedding. We really appreciate you." - Grace & David
"Don't wait to even consider anyone else ... Ed is the BEST! I was nervous booking online, but when I saw his portfolio I was so impressed with his shots ... then we interviewed him and he was so kind and genuine and professional - I almost thought he was too good to be true. Waiting until the day of the wedding to meet him in person was tough for the cynical side of me (I thought he is going to have car trouble, a family emergency, some crazy thing that would prevent him from showing up) but he was early and AMAZING. We had a lot of family dynamics - and Ed took each one with grace and style. He took some amazing pictures of our day and truly captured the feeling that we both had in our hearts with his lens. He is a wonderfully talented photographer. I want to use him again ... just need to come up with the excuse to do it! Would highly recommend his services to anyone who needs a trustworthy and fantastic photographer!" - Elicia & Mike
"My husband and I booked Ed for our engagement and wedding photos and he really exceeded our expectations! He is very accommodating, extremely talented, and also makes you feel super comfortable in front of the camera. You can tell in his photos and his personality that he really cares about his work and his clients. We are so happy we got to work with him and would recommend him to anyone!" - Lauren & James
"I'm crying. Thank you. Thank you beyond words. The photos are beautiful, we love them so much!!" Ashley + Ben
