San Francisco Ed Pingol - Bay Area Wedding Photography: California Wedding Photographer: about the ed pingol photography team

May 10, 2006

about the ed pingol photography team





this is the section where most photographers would write about their history and why they became photographers... maybe even some of their philosophy to talk about how much they love photography. but i think i'll skip all that and just simply tell you that we really like artsy fun photography. and luckily enough, our clients do too... so if you like to have fun, please read on.

ed pingol photography is a happy accident.

we began as a husband-and-wife team consisting of me and my wife, monica, and have grown to a cooperative of several very talented photographers. = ) we love having fun, goofing around, getting to know our clients and honestly portray who and how they really are in pictures. though i love having fun and goofing around, when it comes to getting some kick-butt images, we REALLY don't mess around. feel free to check out our personal blog to stalk, errr... i mean, get to know us better. ; )

another thing you might not want to know (but if you've read this much, why stop) about us is we love sushi! we love lola, our weiner dog, who likes to come along during our family photo sessions and e-sessions.

oh, and make sure you check out the FAQ because there's A LOT OF INFORMATION in that little section.

this is us... uhhh, the real us.



this is my brother and fellow photographer, hamilton (a.k.a. jeff) and i phooning. sounds weird, i know... but it's SO much fun.



hamiton is an awesome lighting assistant and photographer during shoots... especially when i'm in a climbing mood.



monica helping out the lovely jasmine and her hubby, jerome.



monica's going to kill me by putting this up (sorry love) it's part of the process... if you don't want these type of images up on the net, don't make funny faces. = )



i tend to shoot monica quite a bit to test out exposures... she loves it! just look at that smile. = )



yes, more monica.



this picture below is me on my 28th birthday celebrating with immediate family - i love pyramid beers and cupcakes, uhhh... but not at the same time. i also have a lot of happy wrinkles.

What a great tribute to yours and Monica's work; and how you make people feel during their sessions with you two.

I would love to see more behind the scene with Ed and Monica and see the end results like how it was shown here.

Christine has left a new comment on your post "cornell, christine, camila, and cheyenne's family ...":

Ed/Monica,

These pictures are amazing. I can't wait to see the rest of them. So, we didn't get a chance to capture Chayenne's umbilical cord. The opportunity to have someone as creative and talented as the both of you photograph my newborn made up for it 10 fold.

I love the way that you guys were able to capture my babies in their environment and not at a studio where it's cold and unfamiliar. Being able to take photograph at home were my kids are comfortable made such a big difference and made the pictures much more special.

Another thing that I love about you guys is that you are both so down to earth and easy to get along with. This made such a big difference to my older daughter. Now every time we take pictures, she says "Macaroni" and laughs.

I'm defiantly going to book you guys when Cornell and I have our 3rd baby. I will be recommending you to all my friends and family!!!!

Thanks a bunch!!!!!

--------------------------------------------

Enoch Photography has left a new comment on your post "liana and henry's wedding - the cathedral of st. m...":

Holy Cow - these are outstanding. I'm really digging that mixture of HDR into the images. I've been playing around with that for a while now... but the time it takes on each one... def. only meant for special images. Keep it up dood! you rock star you.

--------------------------------------------

So fun! I love your engagement shots and can't wait to see you guys again.

Ed and Monica .. Henry and I were left speechless when we saw our pictures! You two are absolutely AMAZING! The pride and integrity that you have in your work truly shows - I could not think of a better photographer team than the two of you - plus Hamilton of course!

Thank you so much for bringing your positive energy to our wedding. You all truly made our pictures UNFORGETTABLE!!!!!!
