“40th birthday surprise”
For my husband’s 40th birthday, I wanted to surprise him with something fantastic.
He had seen some of Ed’s work and thought it was awesome, so I decided to reach out to Ed. Though I was very nervous about actually going forward with my gift idea, Ed’s endearing nature in our initial consultation made me feel at ease with the decision.
Ed graciously offered to come to our home on the day of my husband’s birthday as his big surprise gift and a second consultation. It was an incredibly fun way to begin the process, and my husband was thrilled.
We decided to have the photos taken in our home and at a nearby park, and Ed was open to all of our input.
The idea of taking nude photos was certainly intimidating (especially after having 2 children), but once I got past the initial nerves it was a wonderful experience to share with my husband.
We had so much fun and really bonded throughout the whole process - during the session as well as getting ready for it and viewing the photos after.
This gift for my husband turned into a gift for both of us.
Ed is an artist. He is able to work with light and shadows in a way that can only be described as magnificent. He also has a gift for illuminating the human body in intriguing and beautiful ways. Not only are my husband and I impressed with Ed’s photography talent, we also like him as a person. He is a really good guy and knows how to put his clients at ease.
We thoroughly enjoyed working with Ed - so much so that we now consider him a friend.
