Kind Words - Ted Ely Photography
Thanks again for making your creative space so open and explorative. Even over a month later, I still find myself going back to our session while self taping. If I’m ever feeling frustrated or stuck filming something, I remind myself of the power I felt behind your lens!
These look fantastic! I am beyond satisfied. I cannot say enough good things about my experience working with you. I’ve been beaming about it to my friends since the shoot a few weeks ago.
I’ll be downloading the gallery ASAP and reaching out to my reps to see which images they think would be best to retouch.
Wishing you the best week,
I love my new photos. They are so good. SO GOOD! And so different from any other shots I've had. Thank you so much for collaborating and putting me at ease! You are an absolute artist.
I'm so glad you recommended the white tank top look... those ones are my absolute favorite ever. You were right!
In all seriousness this was one of the most pleasant experiences I’ve ever had in anything. Both you & Jen brought your delightful special sauces and I just simply cannot wait to see the magic that was created today.
You are all such wonderful beings with such incredible energy and I cannot wait to see the shots & work with you all again in the future at some point.
Sending you all tons of love and a phenomenal weekend!!
All my best,
TED!!! THESE PICTURES ARE AMAZING!! I have been obsessing and struggling to pick all week.
I want to thank you so much for everything! You made my first experience getting headshots probably the best I will ever have in my life. I will never forget the way I felt both during the session and after I left. The positive and uplifting environment you created made me feel this comfort and energy in my skin I never have before. I will be forever grateful to you and your talents because that headshot session will be one I will never forget! I'm currently looking through the pictures now which look INCREDIBLE! Again, thank you so much! I hope we can cross paths again soon.
All I can say is DUDE! WHAT! SHUT THE FRONT DOOR! I absolutely LOVE every single photo. I'm just sad I have to narrow the choices down. You are an amazing photographer, and I have told all my actor friends about you. I'll gladly work with you again in a heartbeat. In conclusion, you ROCK!
Enjoy the rest of your week.
I can't tell you how blown away and excited I was when I opened my headshot file.
Best. Headshots. Ever.
I loooove them. I had an expectation of what each shot would ideally look like and you beyond nailed it. Thank you thank you!
I cannot thank you enough for these stunning shots! This was the most confident, comfortable, and seen I've ever felt in a headshot session (and believe me, I've done more than I care to admit). And the result is totally there!! I look like myself, and I feel so represented in who I am and how I want to reenter the industry in a few months. THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart! It's going to be so hard to just pick two!
I am so thrilled with my headshots, they came out great. I’ve been narrowing down my favorites (which is no small task). I have gotten wonderful feedback from industry folks and I can’t wait to start using them! A few words people have been using to describe their favorites are: intriguing, captivating, poise, maturity, and character.
Thank you for helping me capture such great acting moments!
Thank you so much for an amazing headshot session! I had so much fun collaborating with you, and I am absolutely THRILLED with how these shots came out!! Truly, this has been the best headshot experience I've ever had--both in terms of the creative process and the end result. Thanks again, Ted! I will definitely recommend you to all of my friends/collaborators, and I would absolutely love to work with you again in the future.
Thank you so much!! These are incredible-- I'm absolutely speechless.
I had such a great time working with you and would love to work with you again in the future.
Man these are absolutely incredible. Sorry it’s taken me so long to draft a response but I want to say these shots surpassed every single one of my expectations. Truly you brought out some really amazing things in me and I am just in complete awe of your work. Wow thank you, thank you, thank you. I’ll be in touch soon about retouching. I’m having my manager look them over as well to see which ones he likes. But man. This is incredible. Thanks again man. Keep being you.
I wanted to say thank you for these beautiful pictures. You were really able to capture exactly what I was going for and I’m really grateful for that.
Thank you so much and much luck to you!
Thank you SO much for the wonderful headshots, we love them! The whole experience was great and very much appreciated.
Megan and Leah
My headshots are PHENOMENAL!!!! I literally am like can i use them all? WOW. I am blown away. Thank you so much!
Thank you so much Ted, I love them!!! I’ll be in touch soon with which images I’d like retouched. I think I would like to have 3 instead of 2 pictures retouched if possible. I can Venmo you for the extra edit, or whatever works best. Again, I’m just so thrilled I came to you for headshots!! I truly had the best time creating with you!
Oh. My. Gosh. TED ELY!!!!!!!!
I don’t even know what to say....
These are f$&@ing AMAZING!
I could never have dreamed these would come out so awesome
You made me look so good. Lol.
The sets up, the angles, all the other photography terminology I don’t know.....make it all look so sizzling hot.
I am seriously so so happy and I have just looked at them quickly one time.
I just wanted to write back and say THANK YOU!
You took an introverted anxious camera shy writer and made magic. #genius
Oh my goodness. I LOVE them. How am I going to pick? Thank you for capturing the authentic me. I am so incredibly grateful.
Thank you, Ted. Thank you thank you thank you. I will be in touch soon.
All the best,
Hi There! I wanted to let you know that we are BEYOND THRILLED with your work!! The experience was an absolute dream come true for Gwen. James and I were so appreciative of the way both of you treated her with age-appropriate kindness and warmth, while also making her feel like a respected professional. The photos themselves absolutely blew us away. I knew to expect great work from your website, and yet I was still floored by how amazing the shots are.
Gwen looks beautiful, engaged, connected, full of personality, and shows a lot of versatility over the range of looks, poses, and expressions. Her makeup and hair are absolutely perfect to enhance what she was born with while looking deceptively effortless, and again wonderfully age-appropriate.
We are so grateful that you gave her such a fantastic experience, with an amazing body of photos as the result.
Thank you SO MUCH TED! I’m already so happy with them after a first glance and I just couldn’t be more grateful for how confident and comfortable you made me feel!!
I hope you've been well. I can't even describe how much I love the photos!! Thank you so so so much. I've had such a hard time narrowing down to a top two or three favorites, I love so many of them.
Again, thank you so much!!!!!
Ted! You rock! There are some really great shots here!! Thank you so so much. Will have a million looks through and get back to you. Thanks again for making me feel seen.
Thank you so much!! I just wanted to thank you guys for this process. I loved shooting and I love how the photos turned out and I’m really excited to get back out there auditioning again. I’ll definitely be scheduling a lifestyle shoot sometime soon as well!!!
I wanted to thank you again for creating a safe space for me to capture my most authentic self in my headshots. I really look forward to working with you again... let's get some sick dance photos!
TED!!! These shots are fantastic!!! Thank you for your positivity, enthusiasm, and talent. I had such a great time in the studio with you and Jen. You guys made me feel so at ease and comfortable — truly cannot thank you enough, brother.
THANK YOU! It was so hard to pick because there were too many shots that I absolutely loved and you really managed to capture my essence. I will continue to recommend you to every actor I know.
OMG they look AMAZING!! I LOVE them! Thank you so much! I had a great time working with you & can’t wait for the next time!
It’s going to take me a while to sort through these and pick my favs, so I downloaded them & will start weeding through them ASAP!
Thank you so much for these beautiful photos. You captured me and my authenticity so well. I felt so beautiful in our session and I can’t thank you enough for making the room a safe space to be me:) Next up… A dance session to collaborate on together. I hope you had an awesome holiday. You are the absolute BEST!!!
I just want to say that these are absolutely beautiful! I’m so, so thankful for our session and CANNOT wait to get these out. I’ll be going through them and will let you know ASAP.
Thank you again so much!
These are so awesome man. I’m astounded at how amazing the difference is and how good these came out. My mom cried when I showed her hahahaha. AND it was an absolute blast working with you man. You truly are the best.
THESE ARE STUNNING!!!!
Wow... I am so happy.... THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!
I texted my friend after the shoot just saying you were the best photographer I have ever shot with. And I firmly stand by that.
It is going to be very, very difficult to decide...
Seriously, thank you again.
These are INCREDIBLE. I am so happy!!!! Thank you thank you for a great shoot yesterday. Looking forward to choosing!!
Hi!! I wanted to say THANK YOU for the shots. Re-touched and raw and all. They are beautiful and I'm beyond happy to use them. Till next time, friend.
Thank you so much for the most amazing experience. I am absolutely elated by these shots. WOW. Just wow.
Have no idea how I am going to pick only a few for retouching. They are all phenomenal. (And prepare for tons of Instagram tags, because I will be posting so many of these)
You are the best.
Thank you again,
Oh my god. Thank you so much for these amazing headshots! I truly have never looked this good. It’s all thanks to your unique vision and your innovative approach - thank you for sharing those with me.
I just wanted to send you a quick note and confirm I received and downloaded the full session. These shots are incredible and I had the best time - thank you so much. My reps and I are excited and frankly it'll take us some more time to choose! Will keep you posted for sure - they're so dope.
Hi Laura, Ted, and Jennifer-
I just wanted to thank you all for such a wonderful shooting experience. I received the proofs today and am over the moon- I feel as if what I had envisioned was captured perfectly- even in ways I couldn't have imagined. Thanks for such a creative and supporting environment. I am so excited about what these headshots will yield, and I'll be back! Enjoy the rest of your summer!
Thank you so much Ted! I’m not even halfway through them, and I already don’t know how I’m gonna narrow it down, haha. Truly a great experience.
Oh my god, just….wow. I have never been this happy with any photos taken of me in my 51 years! I can’t thank you enough for doing this shoot with me and working your magic once again! You truly are a gift!
Ted and Laura,
This whole experience has been absolutely wonderful. Thank you for calling me off the waitlist, for working with me, for teaching me, and for such beautiful results. My jaw dropped to the floor when I first opened the gallery. These shots are STUNNING. I am thrilled.
Sorry it took me so long to sort through and decide on retouching, but you see it was hard because they're all SO GOOD.
Thank you again so much for this experience. I have been and will continue to recommend you to all. Let me know how payment works for the two additional retouched images.
Wow Ted, I’m a little emotional looking at these! I’m always so nervous for new shots but I’m genuinely blown away. THANK YOU! I’m so excited for these photos! Appreciate it and also - the photos on the mustard/orange jumpsuit look great!
DUDE! How do you expect me to narrow down these shots to a handful?!?!?! Hahahaha wooow. Amazing, amazing. Help.
You are a remarkable artist, Ted. Wow. I’m blown away by these. Thank you for your kindness and being such a brilliant talent to collaborate with. Truly. I feel so damn lucky and grateful we connected!!
Ted, these photos are amazing! Thank you so much.
I am so so happy with them, and my manager is super happy as well. I can't wait to get these new shots up online!
