ED PINGOL PHOTOGRAPHY
I don't know if Ed and the team will be shooting my wedding because of budget restrictions, but I say if you can afford their rates, they are worth every penny. I am a friend of some of Ed and Monica's staff. In spite of having known them for years, I continue to be blown away by how talented and hardworking they all are. I keep shopping around for another photographer at a lower rate, but no one really measures up. They actually shot my brother (hehe) in his friend's wedding (they've known Ed for years) and they said everything went very smoothly. Ed's a total pro even when working with his friends!
I am continually checking out their blog just to ogle their pictures... that and so I can give my friends a hard time by saying things like, "So, THIS is the wedding you missed my birthday party for!" It's OK... I still love them.
Awesome! I couldn't have asked for a better photographer for our wedding! You'll end up wanting to frame up every picture he takes. Very professional on the big day and he even had helped us to keep on schedule even when our other vendors where delayed.
Ed Pingol was AWESOME. what more can I say? People act surprised that I had so much fun taking pictures on my wedding day, is it NOT supposed to be fun? Because Ed made it fun! Showed us some teasers at the reception as well. We're still waiting for our pictures, and I am dying with anticipation. We also did an aftershoot with him as well, so I can't wait to see those pics! I guess my only complaint would be get those pics to me sooner!!! I'm just impatient it's killing me! But overall
I would recommend him through and through. He may have been way over my small budget but we don't regret it at all because the investment was worth it to have someone fun and professional to work with!
As soon as I got engaged, I told my fiance that if I could only have ONE thing at our wedding, it would be Ed Pingol Photography. Ed Pingol and his crew are the best of the best hands down! Not only do they take the most amazing pictures ever seen, but they are both professional, friendly and just so much fun to be around. Every single one of our guests commented on how wonderful he was to work with. Ed Pingol gets my full hearted review and I hope to use him to document every step of my life with my new husband!
When I first saw Ed Pingol's work, I knew I had to have him as our wedding photographer and this was even before we were engaged! Ed and his wife are the most down to earth and friendly people ever! From our first email and meeting, they were so easy to work with. They were prompt when responding to emails and so helpful too. They would provide guidelines for the engagement session as well as getting ready for the wedding day.
During our engagement session, they made us feel so comfortable and we had a blast with them. We loved our engagement photos and they were more than what we were hoping for.
We just got some photos from our wedding and they were AMAZING! Ed and his team captured every emotion and all the little details of our wedding. He has this incredible eye and his shots were so creative. Our family and friends were raving at how friendly they were at the wedding and they can't get enough of the photos that we have now. We can't wait to see the rest!
We were so fortunate to have Ed as our photographer. Every time someone hears that we have him as our wedding photographer, they say how lucky we are. He really is one of the most sought out photographers in the Bay Area. We love Ed so much we can't wait for another opportunity to use him again.
We recently got our images from Ed Pingol and we are absolutely thrilled with his work. We were able to book him when he was first starting out in the business, and had been following his work on his blog for a year. His work just got better and better and we felt extremely lucky to have him as our wedding photographer.
On our wedding day, Ed, Monica and guest photog Chris were so much fun to work with. They captured every emotion of the day, took shots of all the details I worked hard on, and made every member of our families feel at ease. We took our proofbook around to family members' homes during the holidays and everyone was impressed at how good they looked in the pictures! Because of Ed, we have pictures that our families will cherish for a lifetime.
We thought that our disks were delivered very promptly. We were married on October 25th, and teasers were posted on his blog November 11th. Based on the experiences of my other friends married this year with their photographers, we didn't think we'd get our wedding pictures until after the holidays, so we were really surprised that they were ready before Christmas! Needless to say, wedding pictures were our go-to gifts this year :)
We couldn't have picked a better photographer to capture our wedding day. I wholeheartedly recommend Ed Pingol Photography to anyone!
Ed and his wife Monica are awesome! Not only are they our #1 wedding photographer, but they are truly an inspiration to us. They are such an amazing team, with glowing personality. I love everything that they produce...just check out their website, you'll see what I mean. We had so much fun working with our photographers. We never thought we could be models, but Ed and Mon made it feel very easy for us to feel comfortable posing around them.
I was just wondering if any of the September and earlier couples received the rest of their wedding images from Ed Pingol. He told us they would come in 6-8 weeks, and it's already been almost 14 weeks! I was just curious what the hold up is with the rest of the pictures and why it is taking almost more than double his proposed time.
Ed has amazing pictures, but timing is also important. Especially paying a huge price, we deserve not only to view great pictures but to receive them in a reasonable amount of time. I have friends that just got married in late October and have already received all of their images. The photographer had amazing photos as well!
Ed Pingol Photography is a husband and wife team. They are based out of San Francisco. I looked for a very long time for a photographer that would be able to showcase the splendor of Hawaii and capture the love that we felt on our wedding day. We were not disappointed. Jed and I were truly impressed with the hard work, dedication, superb talent and professionalism of Ed and Monica. Our pictures are breathtaking and a work of art. There is no doubt in our minds that Ed Pingol Photography will be one of the most best wedding photographers of our time.
As the mother of the bride, I was interested to see the way Ed and Monica worked together for HOURS. They were extremely professional, hard working, invisible (not intrusive in any way), energetic and FUN young people.
The teaser pics on their blog were posted in FOUR days--an unbelievably short period of time, even for an eager bride and her mom. They are a revelation--clever, tender, fun, artistic, moody and inventive by turn.
To all you mothers out there, this is the team to book!
We haven't seen our pictures yet, but some of our guests saw them on-site, and have been raving about them ever since. They were amazing- they made sure we got all the shots, but were not at all intrusive. Ed and Monica are great!
Ed Pingol Photography is definitely the way to go if you're looking for a cool, fun, and extremely talented photographer team! Ed and his wife took our wedding pictures this past June 2008 in San Francisco, and their work was beyond phenomenal! The images truly speak for themselves.
They were so easy going, fun, energetic and professional. They were so easy to work with and we all had fun working with them.
A BIG THANK YOU TO ED PINGOL PHOTOGRAPHY!
LOVE HIM! He made my wedding look so beautiful. I feel like everytime i look at my wedding teaser I tear as I remember vividly what our day was like. When my father posted a comment on his blog... it reconfirmed that this is the best decision I've made. Always having an interest in graphic design photography was my priority. I gave up a lot of my ideas to fit him in our budget and I'm glad I did. Even my husband that was hesitant to spend any money... he bowed down to me.
All my family and friends loves him, his wife, and brother as they made taking pictures so much fun. They are professional, prompt, quick, and have a creative side that is priceless. If you don't believe me my photos of my e-pics and wedding are in my photo album in my profile.
I felt this after hiring them photos were the least of my worries. BIG THANK YOU TO ED PINGOL PHOTOGRAPHY!
Absolutely terrific. I'm the mother-of the bride. Ed and Monica were everywhere, yet not in the way a single instance. They clearly loved what they do. The resulting shots were quite a variety--some romantic, some highly artful (honestly looked as if they would be in a glossy magazine for celebrity weddings) and some were just downright fun--creative and youthful. My daughter and son-in-law LOVED Ed and Monica, and I will thank them forever more every time I look at their stunning work. The bride organized all of this long distance from Texas, and could not have found two people more accomplished and trustworthy and easy to work with.
Ed is a gem! He and his wife have an artistic eye and the output is amazing. I have not gotten all my photos in yet but I know that based on my engagement photos I won't be disappointed.
During the initial contact, I emailed him a list of questions that he promptly responded back with. One of the great things he does, is provide a "Tip Sheet" for the engagement photos noting what is best for the photos and other suggestions. This helped a lot.
For those who worry about responses, you get a quick one from this team. They were helpful in providing me a time line of photography and checking in with me the day before.
I got the photos and they were worth it. He picked up some of the best parts of the day, the emotion, the joy of it all. If I got married again, I would use this team no doubt.
Eddie and Monica are a great wedding photography couple! They did our engagement pictures in January at Stinson Beach right at sunset. And with weather being unpredictable, it did rain before our session, but once that sunset peaked out, the pictures they captured turned out great! I love going to their blog and looking at the other wedding and engagement pictures they shoot. Eddie is so amazing at creating modern images that most wedding photographers do not capture. They travel and they're really popular now- so book them as far advance as possible! =)
The images speak for themselves. Ed was my photographer during a photoshoot in San Francisco. The pictures surpassed my expections; absolutely beautiful and classic. I love his very unique style and a keen eye for perfection. Modern, fresh, and timeless. I HIGHLY recommend ED to shoot for any special occasion especially weddings. He is well versed in lighting, directing, and editing. If you're looking for someone who is professional, experienced, and easy-going...Ed Pingol Photography is the way to go!
Ed and his wife Monica did such a great job on both our engagement and wedding pictures. Everyone asked me who did your pictures and couldn't believe how well they turned out. Ed Pingol is seriously the best photographer out there. He has a great eye and makes you feel very comfortable. We received all of our pictures within a timely manner and were very impressed on how professional they were. I recommend Ed Pingol to everyone. He's the best! Thank you Ed and Monica!

Ed is a super awesome photographer, his work is always top notch and off-the-hook! He is very versed in everything technical and no doubt is one of the best in the industry. I would not hesitate for one second to hire Ed to shoot your wedding!

Ed delivers amazing and creative photographs. He knows how to show the personality of each couple through his work and takes really fun wedding party group shots. If you want something a little edgy then Ed is your man.
A great wedding photographer!!
Ed and Monica are so much fun! They capture every detail of the wedding day, always maintaining a positive attitude, the bride & groom are always smiling when they are around. -- Maria Chang of PMA
