    Teddy is the photographer you dream of having. Professional, courteous, accommodating and his work is beautiful! I brought my entire team for company website shots. He made the progress smooth and fun! We even brought our pet pig for a headshot! The studio is conveniently located, clean and comfortable. Teddy's work was also quick and efficient- he had our proofs ready the same day as our shoot and final proofs within the same day we made our selections. I would definitely recommend TedShots. I plan to use his services again when needed.

    Amazing, funny, caring and very professional. I needed a professional headshot for work and Ted made the magic happen. I'm very shy around the camera and Ted worked very well with me. He was funny, he had amazing suggestions, and even did some magic with the pictures. He is truly amazing. I'm glad I found him via Yelp and I would definitely use his services again. Can't thank him enough for his work.

    We have worked with Ted on a couple occasions to take corporate head shots and he will continue to be our "go to" photographer in the area. He is professional, efficient, and made the experience surprisingly enjoyable. Ted accommodated our request for both indoor and outdoor shots and everyone was happy with the results.

    As a person who has had a difficult relationship with the camera lens, I approached my wife's idea of getting a professional photo with some trepidation, but Teddy made what could have been an embarrassing ordeal into a great triumph! The pictures he took of both my wife and me were terrific, and we've immediately put them to good use in support of our professional activities. Teddy was extremely friendly, patient, and immediately responsive -- with a quick turnaround and editing process. I highly recommend Teddy, and absolutely would go to him again were I to need additional photos.

    Excellent photographer. He helped me with a LinkedIn corporate headshot. He'll take a multitude of photos then go over them with you to choose the best one and from there he'll adjust it in Lightroom and email you that photo along with seven or so of your top ones. Easy to work with funny and cool guy.

    I am not an actor or a big corporation, and don't have a big event planned, I just wanted some personal photos. After searching for months I'm so glad I found Teddy. He's just awesome. Whatever you want on film he can do, from a studio portrait to a movie. He was very professional, made me feel comfortable, understood what I wanted, was fast and affordable. I will definitely be using his services again.

    Worked with Teddy very recently and he was amazing. Had really great ideas on my look and was very professional yet really chill to work with. Made shooting fun and comfortable. He was too good, now I'm having such a hard time choosing from all the amazing shots we got. I would recommend to anyone and definitely plan on going back anytime I need more shots. Ps. played really great music in the background which made things even more fun and exciting.

    FAQ

    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    Some things to know

    How do I book a shoot?

    Call or email Ted to schedule a time. He will then send you a calendar event and email with all of the information that you need.

    How soon can I book my appointment?

    It’s best to schedule a week or two in advance, but sometimes we can take you as soon as same day.

    What should I do to prep for my shoot?

    Make sure your clothes aren’t dirty or wrinkly, come looking your best, and drink plenty of water the night before and morning of to keep your skin well balanced.

    What if I have no experience being on camera?

    This is actually very common. Ted has many methods to capture the most authentic version of you. He will direct you along the way, so that you get into the moment and out of your head about how you look. It’s actually quite fun and often funny.

    When do I get my proofs and final shots?

    If it’s a quick one-off professional look then the final shot is chosen and touched up before you leave the studio. If it’s a longer shoot or an on-location shoot, then right after the shoot Ted sends you a link of online Proofs. Once you pick your favorite shots from the proofs, touchups are complete usually within 24-48 hours.

    Do you watermark your photos and make me pay to remove your logo?

    No. We don’t keep your photos hostage. Although we recommend you wait for your final touched up, you are free to post any raw proofs online. We only watermark images for clients who have yet to pay.

    Do I need to book hair and makeup?

    This is up to you. If you think you need hair and makeup then we can bring you one of our partner stylists for an additional fee. You can also get your hair and makeup done before your appointment.

    Can I pay by credit card?

    Yes. Of course. We even accept bitcoin.
