From our engagement shoot, to our big day, Carlos did an amazing job, listening to what I (we) wanted. We've never had professional pictures taken before, and he definitely made us feel at ease and captured some great candid pictures. Both my mom and now mother in law were on the picky side, and he handled their requests very well. In my suite, I had quite the glam squad on our big day, and he was like a photog ninja. Our ceremony was gorgeous, and honestly, barely remember everything that went on. Carlos captured so many priceless moments. He captured perfect angles and lighting. I was very worried that we wouldn't be able to gather everyone needed for pictures afterwards. But he told me not to worry. Sure enough, the family members we couldn't track down for pictures, we had the chance to have a mini photo op right before the reception and throughout. From beginning to end, we knew exactly what was going on and what to expect.
Thank you so much for capturing such great shots!
My daughter and son-in-law hired Carlos as their wedding photographer. He took some truly beautiful photographs and even made them available to view on a slideshow during the reception! It was lovely for family and guests to be able to see those special moments unfold, especially since not everyone was able to be present for the ceremony. I would highly recommend Carlos!
The photos that Carlos took at our wedding were wonderful. He made me and my wife feel like the photography was taken care of so we can enjoy ourselves during the day. He wasn't in our faces at all, but still caught all the great moments that made our day special. Choosing him as our photographer was the best decision we could have made!
I picked Carlos to shoot my wedding because he had a strong photojournalism background, had beautiful photos on his website, had no time limitations, and was so nice and easy going during our consultation. He did not disappoint!!
He captured every moment and detail of our wedding day perfectly. At first I was a little concerned because the wedding day schedule didn't exactly go as planned, but Carlos was there the entire day and made me feel like everything was going to be OK. I didn't even notice he was there most of the time! The photos were up on his website just a few days after the wedding and they were gorgeous!
I would absolutely recommend him to any bride looking for an awesome wedding photographer at a reasonable price.
My daughter (the bride) hired Carlos after reviewing his portfolio. She also used him for a save the date mailer earlier in the year. She made a great choice. Carlos not only took great pictures with great results, he moved seamlessly throughout the ceremony and reception getting the best shots.
Carlos did a great job for our wedding. He was like a fly on the wall and was not intrusive at all. He got all the shots we wanted and had great ideas of shots we would love. He stayed with us all day and shot in multiple locations. He was very professional and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.
I could not be happier with Carlos and his work. His prices were extremely reasonable and the quality of his work was exceptional. I absolutely loved that he was able to capture the memories of our day in such a candid way. I would recommend him to any bride & groom.
My husband and I were married 14 years ago and really didn't have money at the time to have great photos taken. This year we decided to renew our vows and take some great pics. I was a little nervous about choosing the right photographer. Carlos was great. We felt comfortable and he had a lot of great ideas. I am so glad we stumbled across his wedding photography page and would totally recommend him to everyone I know.
We were so pleased with each and every photo. They captured every detail of my daughter and son and law's special day. Years to come they can look back at the photos and relive every wonderful moment. The photos are simply spectaular. But it was not just the outstanding photos that made the experience good. On the wedding day the bride and grooms kept changing their timelines. Carlos seemlessly maneuvered through all of the bride and groom changes without missing a beat, along with keeping me calm in along the way. I would highly recommend Carols.
I hired Carlos because I wanted a photographer that wouldn't get in everyone's face at the wedding.
He took our engagement photos, which I wasn't actually thrilled with- the posed pictures from the engagement shoot he picked to send us weren't the best. But that wasn't an issue at the wedding. He got candid shots, which I loved because posed pictures don't really capture what I think the day was about.
He did so great with the ceremony, and the reception, though in the few posed pictures we took some of us weren't looking, or making a weird face.
The candids are the best. The composition and his ability to get the background and details were amazing. I was afraid the wedding pictures wouldn't be gorgeous because it was cloudy that day, but he made the whole thing look absolutely incredible.
He's not at all intrusive on intimate moments but he didn't miss them. And you'll get every detail from your venue. He took shots of our centerpieces, and the outside of the building, the desserts, and everyone getting ready, which I thought was awesome.
We had the package where you set up a monitor so people can see the photos of you getting ready. I didn't love the idea at first, but people really enjoyed it. We also got a big wedding album, which is absolutely beautiful, and a little one for the parents. All the pictures are online and he sends you a CD with them too.
He's also really nice, and his assistant was terrific too. I would recommend him to anyone, with one thing- if you want posed shots with family members, etc., you should set talk about them before the event, and make sure no one's eyes are closed and they're looking at the camera, etc. Candids are great and they're what I wanted, but at the wedding, I realized I wanted some posed photos and they're not the best.
I was really happy overall.
Carlos is truly a great a wedding photographer. He made me feel at ease ,relaxed while capturing each moment. Every picture Carlos took was great not one bad photo . He really captured the most beautiful moments. I feel every picture told a story in its self. I would highly recommend this talented photographer for any Bride and Groom who wants to truly capture their story in the most beautiful way. Thank you again Carlos for your amazing art and beautiful heart.
Thank you for the kind comments, Crystalene. I'm very happy that I was able to capture all the moments of your special day!

My husband and I just renewed our vows in Maui this October. Carlos made it out and did an amazing job! We are very pleased with his work. He's a great photog and captures every moment. Very prepared and ready! Thanks Carlos!!
Thank you for the nice comments. I had an amazing time in Hawaii with you guys!
Me and my husband were very pleased with the quality of photos and service provided by Carlos Delgado. He knew how to make us feel relaxed in front of the camera, and that is something we were concerned about before the wedding. Carlos and his crew were fun and worked well together to capture our special day through amazing photos as well as great video. They even had a slideshow of all the getting ready and ceremony photos ready by the reception for our guests to see!
I would recommend Carlos to anyone I know who needs a creative and talented photograper who is great to work with.
Thank you very much for the kind review. I am happy to hear that I was able to make you feel relaxed and comfortable.
Carlos was a true professional and always made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. The photos were beautiful and the album was perfect. He and his team captured all the important moments from every angle possible in a creative, story telling way. I hardly noticed him at all during the big day, and he made it incredibly easy and an absolute pleasure to do business with him.
I would recommend Carlos and CD Wedding Photography to anyone looking for quality wedding photos at a reasonable price.
Thank you so much for the kind comments! I'm glad I made you feel comfortable in front of the camera and that I told the story of your wedding day while hardly being noticed.
My husband and I chose CD Wedding Photography for our engagement photos, wedding, and a family gathering. We selected CD Wedding Photography because we were immediately impressed with the quality of Carlos' work. When we met Carlos in person, we instantly felt comfortable with him. We expressed our concern with feeling awkward/uncomfortable while taking photos, and he assured us that he will make us feel comfortable. He was right! Carlos is very easy to work with, and he helped us to feel comfortable during our photo sessions. In fact, during our wedding, there were times that I didn't even realize he was there. His ability to capture important memories without intervening was very impressive. It allowed us to enjoy our special day while still having amazing photos.
When we received our photo album, we were impressed with the quality of the photos and the album. We were really happy that our photos turned out so well, because for us, the photographs were crucial for capturing our memories.
I would recommend Carlos Delgado and CD Wedding Photography to anyone who wants a professional photographer who is easy to work with, flexible, and reasonably priced.
Maribel, thank you for the positive review! I'm happy to hear that I made you and Lin feel comfortable and that you were impressed with the quality of my work.
We approached Carlos to photograph our wedding and met with him to discuss our ideas. He was very friendly and worked with us to meet our requests and budget. He visited the venue before the wedding to understand the layout, lighting, and best places to take some close-ups. His photos are very high quality, high resolution, sharp, vivid, professional-grade and was able to take many photos, some of them difficult, in a short period of time during the ceremony. He edited them well and quickly. He posted the photo gallery on his website within a few days after the ceremony while we were on our honeymoon! I definitely recommend Carlos and his team.
Thank you very much for the nice words. It makes me happy to hear that I was proficient and easy to work with.
As any bride will find out, planning your wedding can be very stressful at times. Carlos was always very professional and patient with all of our questions. On the day of our wedding, it was great to see him all over taking pictures at every angle. Even though the day went by in blur, I can look back at our beautiful wedding album and feel like I am there all over again. I always recommend Carlos to anyone that asks me.
Amber, thank you very much for the glowing review. It makes me glad to know that you can look back at your photos and album and experience your special day all over again. You made it easy for me to take nice photos!
My husband and I were very happy with our decision to use CD photography. Carlos was a lot of fun while also maintaining a level of professionalism. He was very flexible and worked around our schedule as well. We felt that we got a lot for our money as the package included our engagement session, full wedding day and a beautiful album. If you are looking for a great wedding photographer we would recommend using Carlos.
Thank you for the kind words! It makes me happy to know that I was fun, flexible, and that you felt you got a lot for your money. I definitely strive for newlyweds to feel that way about my service at every wedding.
Fantastic results, more then courteous, and a total professional. My wife couldn't have been happier. I couldn't recommend Carlos Delgado enough.
Thank you for the positive review. I'm very humbled that you thought I provided you with a perfect experience! That is definitely my goal.
