" Engagement Session:
Gerard and I had not planned on doing an engagement session because it’s always the same type of session. The couple always goes to a beautiful location and the photographer captures photos of the couple within the scenery. Once we told Eduard we did not want one he called me back and had a fantastic idea that would be different and not your typical engagement session. We were so excited with his idea and felt it represented are personalities and our love. Our engagement session turned out amazing and Eduard was able to capture a side of us that truly showed who we are as a couple. Eduard is very talented behind the camera and we were so impressed with the quality of his work.

Gerard and I are very pleased with the work that Eduard had conducted the day of the wedding. When the lighting in the area wasn’t great Eduard used his techniques and skills to produce impressive images for our album. I really liked how Eduard would give us tips on how to position ourselves which was really nice since none of us are models or professionals. It was nice to have the guidance and by the end I felt like I was a professional taking fantastic photos. Eduard has a great personality which made it easy to work with him and it made things more comfortable. When Eduard completed our photos and created the album I had no words to describe how incredible it turned out. The story he captured of our special day is exactly if not more then what I thought it would be. His photography skills and quality of work is 5 star and I plan on working with Eduard in the future.

“We had an amazing experience with One Time Shot Photography for our wedding day!
Eduard was very involved and eager to make our day come to life in the photos he took. He paid so much attention to details and really guided us through the whole process. Sometimes you can feel lost when you are getting your photo taken, but Eduard made us feel so comfortable, had so many ideas and helped position us so that we looked the best in our photos. We had so much fun taking our photos that day, and we were really put at ease with Eduard's calm nature and creative ideas that everything came so naturally to us and the experience was so refreshing. One thing that stood out for us was that Eduard got to know us as a couple before he started taking any photos of us. We felt so comfortable after that knowing that he really knew our tastes and what we wanted for our wedding day.
I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is taking photos for any occasion - he is now my go-to photographer! We were so happy with the quality of the prints, and the time and care he spent showing us different samples. I have never seen the same quality of prints he can provide - they are outstanding and I have gotten so many comments from family and friends how beautiful the photos turned out. They will be a keepsake we will have forever and we are so glad that we hired Eduard for our special day!”

" Eduard is a very unique and passionate photographer. He not only did the type of engagement photos we wanted but he went over and above to have us for another session and added his own touch to them. We are so happy with all of our pictures and excited to have him as our wedding photographer next year.
Thank you so much! You're amazing :) "

"We won a Virgin Radio contest and got the pleasure of working with Edward for our wedding. The one thing that stood out to both of us was his passion in photography and also his commitment to whom he is working with. The first time we met with him before our wedding, we could already tell that photography was up his alley. The passion and excitement, whenever he showed us the pictures he took, really stood out to us and we knew that on our special day he was going to be able to capture every special moment.
Before the wedding day happened, Edward was MUCH of a help! And lemme tell you coming from a bride, it was such a huge relief. He was always willing to suggest in order help out. There were times where I, the bride, would be surprised because he was so much of a help. He would suggest makeup artists, jewelry and much more in order to take pressure off my shoulders! He is a very detailed oriented person. The work that you put in with him, the better your outcome will be on the wedding day. He wanted to know our story of how we both came to be, who our family was, where our ceremony was going to be held and reception. He did his research and that definitely paid off during the wedding day!
After the wedding day, we went put on our attire again to take another photo shoot. He again did his research, and it paid off! We went to a place so beautiful and took photos there. We were able to have fun at our shoot, all the while, him showing us photos he's taken at that moment. We're very blessed to have worked with you Edward! :)
Thank you for doing our wedding and hope many more for you to come!!"

" We wanted to have some memories created for our little girl in a studio type set-up but had no clear vision for what we were looking for. I was thinking some traditional portraits with white background and posed photos type of session. But then, when we talked to Eduard over the phone, he asked us to meet with him for a personal consultation and to bring our daughter as well for them to have a chance to meet. I’m so glad we went to that meeting because that’s what started this beautiful experience we ended up having during and after our photo session. As soon as Eduard saw our little girl, he knew a fairy set-up would the perfect match for her personality and looks. To be honest, I was a bit hesitant at fist for a fairy session like many others I’ve seen before and didn’t quite like but after talking to him and seeing the fairy dress he had in his costumes collection and the description of his fairy set, I was convinced to give it a try. It was a best decision and I’m so glad I trusted his vision and ideas. When we arrived at the studio, everything was set up like in a fairy book and our girl was feeling so happy to be there. I was also surprised how patient he was when working with her to capture all those images and how many little tricks he had to keep her interested and focused in the set……"
Thank You Eduard,
Viorica, Andrew and Sophie
"What can I say about Edward? I can tell you how passionate he is about photography, how creative his imagination is, and most importantly how it come through in the pictures he takes. I couldn't have asked for a better experience in our wedding shoot. The pictures turn out marvelously and so unique. The most important thing about Edward is that he takes his time to make sure a shot will be perfect, not making the couple feel rushed or uncomfortable he wants the pictures to emanate love.
Edward is so passionate that with every picture he creates a mood before snapping the shutter. I see nothing but truth in the pictures he takes, showing my happiness without looking posed. It was an experience I've never had with another photographer, being so involved and seeing how happy it made him to be a part of the process.
I wouldn't hesitate to refer anyone I know, to have a day so special as their wedding day photographed by him. Any moment worth keeping is a moment to have Edward there to share in keeping the memory for years to come.
Thank you Edward!"

"Edward did a great job of engaging our kids and keeping them interested and smiling for the camera. He had some cute ideas as to what would look good and most of all he had a tremendous amount of patience as with most kids and photo taking - they were not cooperating the entire time. We ended up with some great family shots which we will treasure for ever!
Thank so much! "
