“It is more important to click with people than to click the shutter.”
— Alfred Eisenstaedt

Hello!  My name is Ed Allen…

Photography is so much more than the pictures that are taken. It is about the relationship and the story both the photographer and the subject are trying to tell.  I have been working hard at perfecting my ‘storytelling,’ and I am always looking for new subjects to explore.

In addition to sports portraits, I also photograph seniors, families, and couples. I use a Canon camera with a few different lens choices depending on the circumstances of the shoot. I also have professional lighting, but can shoot outdoors in natural light as well. I use a variety of locations, but can come to you as well.

Whatever the circumstances surrounding your need for a photographer might be, you can rest assured that I have your best interests in mind and will do my best to help capture the moments you are looking for during your shoot.

Why Choose Me?


A variety of lighting opitions, both indoor studio lighting, and outdoor natural lighting.

From the lighting, to the props, to the camera itself. Everything I use is quality grade.
