Photo booth experience

Photo booths are a must have for wedding fun! Our photo booth add on is a perfect way to include the photo booth experience with the convenience of not having to look for another vendor and pay twice as much!

Marcus and Elysa

Throughout the entire process leading up to the wedding, Carmen was amazing to work with! They made the process easy and fun for Marcus and I planning our wedding on our own. As I look at our pictures it is like reliving the best day of our lives. This was the one vendor Marcus said “ We have to have her.” If you are looking for a photographer to capture you and your significant other as yourselves, this is the vendor to choose!

Carmen Goes out of her way to support and make sure her couples feel like family.

Melissa and Benny

Carmen has exquisite attention to detail and was able to capture our beautiful memories  in such a way that we will look back on and cherish them every time we look at them.  She Included all the personalized  moments that made our day special. We will adore these photos for the rest of our lives!!

All of our photographs were second to none and absolutely amazing.

Melissa and Benny

Carmen was very easy to work with because of her personality. We loved working with her and we are excited to work with her again in the near future. We recommend Carmen to everyone that is getting married soon, or even for family portraits.

When we were looking to hire a wedding photographer, we didn't want photography that didn't show our story.
