It was a pleasure to work with Carlos for our wedding. We meet in Chicago, but he went out of his way to make it to our wedding in Florida. We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer for our big day! He didn’t miss any of the special moments. From our baby daughter... Read More helping me get ready, to the big moment when I could not stop laughing during our vows and capturing our big and crazy Colombian party (it was like hearding cats but he did it!). The best part is looking back through our picture book and getting transported back to our magical day. Carlos absolutely captured the essence of who we are and we are so grateful to have his stunning pictures to remind us of the best day of our lives.

Carlos was our wedding photographer and I could not have asked for a better experience.

I don't think that we could have been any happier with Carlos as our wedding photographer! Carlos came all the way to Marquette, Michigan, in the Upper Peninsula, to shoot our wedding. Carlos went above and beyond with anything expected of him during the several days that he was... Read More in Marquette with us. When my then-fiance and I showed him around town a few days before the wedding, he was so positive that it helped ease some of our nerves. Since it was a destination wedding, we invited Carlos to the welcome dinner the night before the wedding. He came and was so happy to meet everyone and was able to get a sense of who everyone was for the wedding day. On the day of the wedding, Carlos was so excited about taking pictures of us that it made us excited to go to all of the different locations and take our time with the pictures. Between the two of us, we have been to and been in many weddings-- and you oftentimes never really hear anything about the photographer, unless there are problems with the photographer. We had numerous guests approach us to tell us how much they loved Carlos, AND we had our other vendors tell us how much they loved Carlos. I even had the person in charge of the venue text me the next day specifically to tell me how much she loved Carlos! We could tell that he was happy to be at our wedding, but he also did a wonderful job of staying very low-key, so that you almost didn't even realize he was there, which I think helped contribute to why our pictures turned out so wonderfully. We can't thank Carlos enough for coming all the way to northern Michigan to help make our wedding day perfect!
