My name is Edward Michael Benavides and I have a passion for creating great experiences.  I have been doing so since I got my 1st job taking photos in 1997.  It wouldn’t take long for me to realize how lucky I was to find what I love to do in life at such an early age… So I decided to start my own photography business at 19 in 1999.  It has been a wonderfully, terrifying, learning experience.  First, I had to overcome my fear of failure (this is much harder than it seems).  Then, I had to master the art of photography and find my style, this came very naturally to me.  Finally, came the best part… meeting people just like you who have empowered me to express my creativity through the art of photos.   All of this has resulted in creating great experiences for myself and my clients.


I believe in honesty.  If I don’t think I’m the best photographer for you, I will gladly introduce the right photographer for you.  If I don’t think you look good during your photo-session, I will stop everything and find a new spot to capture you at your best.

I believe you have to connect with your photographer.  If you like the photographers photos but not the photographer you will have a bad experience and that will resonate in your photos.

I believe photography is the third most important thing about your wedding, right behind the actual ritual of marriage and you having one of the most amazing days of your life.  After all… What’s the use of great photos if the marriage didn’t take place and no one had a good time?

I believe we will become friends for a lifetime!  This is the case 100% of the time.  Your event is a very intimate special day in which we all become witnesses of your journey and I look forward to every event I shoot.

I understand the importance of my presence at your event and I take my job very seriously.  This is my passion and I am grateful to every single person who allows me photograph them.  I have the privilege of capturing them at their very best… and I get a piece of cake while I’m there :).

I look forward to hearing from you.
