I was late to my own wedding, and instead of sitting around, he took advantage of the delay and photographed all the men in the family, setup, and arriving guests. 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. The final photos were sent to us three weeks after our wedding day, and we also received a CD in the mail promptly after that. He really worked some magic and we are so happy with our photos. We highly recommend Blue Spot Photography!!

Carlos was wonderful!! We witnessed his work a couple years ago when they photographed our friends wedding. When we booked with Carlos it was so easy. We told him what we wanted and he created a picture package for us. Carlos met with us at our venue about a month away from... Read More the big day and went over all the places we (planned) on taking photos. On our wedding day Carlos was there promptly at 1pm, I wasn't even there yet, he got started taking all the little detail shots until arrived. It was pouring rain for most of our wedding day so Carlos really had to get creative, all our photos had to be inside the same room because of the weather. 3 weeks later now and Carlos emailed us the link to our private galleria last night. They're perfect! I love them all! It's so nice to have the online gallery to be able to share with people. We had the best experience with Carlos, they were willing to do anything we wanted them to do but also had their own great ideas as well. I'd recommend them to anyone that asked!
