We LOVE our gallery. We had a strong feeling Carlos was the right choice for this event - very much a "Goldilocks" fit in terms of balanced style, professionalism, and personality - and we are so glad to see that borne out. (His assistant was wonderful as well.) These were worth... Read More every minute and every penny. Here's what our loved ones had to say when they saw them: "I'm only on page one, but all of these look so good and make me smile." "Seeing these makes me feel mushy all over again. In a good way." "Thanks for sharing lovely pictures to remember a beautiful day!"

Carlos is an amazing photographer and a pleasure to work with. He was very accommodating and patient. My husband and I are very introverted so we were very nervous about the first-look session.

Carlos provided enough direction to smoothly shoot gorgeous photos but left enough room for us to be ourselves in front of the camera.

We really enjoyed working with Carlos. He is very professional and responsive. Our day-of photographer was Ed who did a very nice job capturing our wedding and the pre-wedding shoot with the bride and bridesmaids. Ed was about 30 minutes late which made things feel a little...

And are very grateful for working with Carlos and Ed.

My husband and I have very large families and they all wanted to be in the post ceremony family photos. Carlos was so patient and made it work. We also had about an hour of his time left when the reception ended, and we drove to another site to have photos of just my husband and me.
