I LOVE Carmen’s work. She is a true artist! She has captured the most amazing moments of my life: my wedding (honestly, they are the most beautiful photographs!); my pregnancy and most recently, my baby. Carmen is passionate about her work. She truly “gets” her clients and is able to capture their vision for their special days. Carmen is my photographer for life!
Gorgeous photographs from amazing photographer!!! Carmen is a joy to work with!!! She is very kind, highly professional, excellent with direction and attentive to your needs. Despite very short booking time (I was such a bad planner, I didn’t have the photographer booked until two months to the date:-)), she was able to work with us and customized a package that fit both our needs and our budget. My deepest gratitude to her for job extremely well done!
Carmen Rubio was more than amazing!!! My husband and I met with her prior to our wedding to review exactly how we envisioned our day. She listened carefully and took our suggestions and ran with them. She was even nice enough to scout out our locations prior to the wedding to see what would work best. Her creativeness really came through in our photos. On the day of our wedding…we needed Carmen to be our “little” ring leader and she did just that but in a more gracious way than most photographers I’ve seen. Most photographers are very much “in your face” and even though Carmen was in our face, lol, we didn’t even know she was there and when she wasn’t there, we wanted her to be! She is the first photographer we looked at and the only one we will ever use for any future occasion.
I actually was the groom. My wife and I absolutely love Carmen. She has an easy going fun loving personality. She is very professional and kept our wedding party conscious of time with out being rude. And best of all the pictures came out great! Since our wedding, we have referred our friends to Carmen and plan to use her to do our family portraits once we start building one.
In all honestly there are almost no words that would truly express how wonderful Carmen and her work are! She is the ultimate in professionalism and creativity. She was a pure joy to work with as well as very informative and knowledgeable about ANYTHING that concerned photography and then some! She was easy to work with. She made me and my now husband feel like our wedding and wedding photos were so important to her. She added a special touch because she really got to know us and and what we really wanted!
If you want AWESOME photos…Carmen Rubio Photography is the only way to go!
I would highly recommend Carmen Rubio Photography!! It was an absolute pleasure to work with Carmen. She truly loves what she does and goes above and beyond to make your day a special one. My pictures came out beautiful!! Her work is amazing and Carmen is such a wonderful person!!
One word…AMAZING!!! Carmen Rubio Photography was a pleasure to work with. Her vision is FABULOUS and her photographs are even MORE ASTONISHING. She was able to see things in such a UNIQUE and INTERESTING WAY that most people would not, which WE LOVE! She caught eachintimate moment in such a classy way that we didn’t even know she was there, and caught the fun moments at the perfect times. Every moment of our wedding was caught on camera in such a BEAUTIFUL way. Every picture brings us back to that wonderful day so we can relive it all over again. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND Carmen Rubio Photography!!!!
Carmen was recommended through an old friend and the best recommendation ever. We felt comfortable with her at our meeting. I have seen her work and how she tell the story in her pictures. We met again a few months before for an engagement/family shoot and all the kids felt comfortable with her. Those pictures were beautiful. Carmen gave us the laid back feeling we wanted in a professional way. The quality of her work is excellent. She and her assistant are so friendly. She even called me the night before to see if I was ok and reassured to see us the next morning. Love her.
If you are looking for boring, everyday wedding photographs then Carmen Rubio is not the photographer for you. If you are looking for the most beautiful, artistic, creative photographs that truly capture the essence of YOUR special day, then look no further than Carmen Rubio. She was the first vendor we booked and she was truly amazing–she not only focused on the photographs but also took the time to recommend other vendors (Kalijo Works for our invitations and Jeany Star salon for my hair). Carmen is a true artist and the utmost professional whom we recommend without any hesitation.
We had two planning meetings with Carmen before the wedding during which she walked us through the entire plan for the big day. She helped us focus on what was important to us and helped us determine exactly what we wanted her to capture on our special day.
I have to say that we are extremely happy with our beautiful wedding photographs and I would encourage you to check out some of Carmen’s work at www.carmenrubio.com or find the Carmen Rubio Photography page on Facebook.
When it comes to choosing wedding vendors, you want the best for your special day; especially when it comes to finding someone to capture your day exactly as you remembered it. Carmen Rubio is definitely an amazing photographer with great talent. Her artistic style and extremely sweet personality made it fun shooting together, and the end result was a fantastic day with thousands of memories created by Carmen Rubio. She and her assistant were there to make sure we had some great shots, and I couldn’t have asked for anyone to have depicted our day as beautifully as she had. She also did an engagement shoot for us at the beach, and the photographs were fantastic. Carmen is truly a warm and personable person, and we knew after the engagement shoot that we had made the right decision in choosing her to do our wedding. She was AMAZING in every respect!! She also created a beautiful sepia tone photograph from our wedding pictures, which she created our thank you cards with. We got so many compliments about her photographs and her work, and even afterwards, about how beautiful the thank you cards were. If you have any doubt in your mind about your wedding plans, you can ease your worries if you choose to go with Carmen Rubio for your photography. Truly an amazing choice and I would recommend her to anyone.
We live in Dublin, Ireland and found and booked Carmen Rubio Photography via the internet. Naturally we were a little concerned at not being able to visit her offices for a consultation until the week of the wedding but we need not have worried, we couldn’t have been happier with the service provided on the day. Steven and Sara we’re so professional and really put us at ease. Many of the guest remarked at how friendly they were. The album arrived last week and it’s great to see the finished product, anyone who has seen it have said how great it looks. We would no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Carmen Rubio Photography to any prospective clients.
Carmen Rubio is extremely professional and outgoing person. She went above and beyond for us. We are very happy with our pictures, they came out perfect!
Carmen Rubio Photography is a must for any bride to be! Her level of professionalism balanced by her easy “can do” attitude made her a pleasure to work with!
I loved her…. she made me feel comfortable, she was a great professional. Her pictures were absolutely wonderful. I would totally recommend her ….. you will love her too
I had a fun time working with Carmen. Her photos are awesome and she captures the best moments of the wedding and engagement photos. Her style is one of a kind. Thanks Carmen!!!
Carmen was AMAZING!!!! She did an absolutely fantastic job on our wedding day. Every bride knows how important pictures are and we wanted the very best for our special day and Carmen DELIVERED!!! To start off, I met Carmen at her long island city office to review some of her previous work as well as go over the various wedding photography packages she had available. Let me just say; I was impressed!!! Her attention to detail was dead on and every couple looked amazing in the sample albums. My fiancé, (now husband) and I discussed it and booked her right away. It was the best decision we ever made. On the day of our wedding; we wanted to take pre-ceremonial pictures (which meant that Carmen would have to arrive very early in the morning). She did not miss a beat. She was on time and brought along her assistant to ensure that every detail was captured. (If I remember correctly; I think you got the assistant based on the package you chose). Oh, and before the wedding day, Carmen called to get the names of family members we wanted in our pictures. She took an incredible amount of pictures for the pre-ceremony (what most brides know as the “getting ready pictures”) the ceremony and reception.. Looking at the pictures; you would never know how hot the day was and believe me it was hot. We had a summer wedding (July 24, 2010) and it was a gorgeous day but definitely hot. If photos are important to you then you should definitely consider Carmen Rubio’s photography. You’ll love your pictures. One last comment; this is not all too consuming but certainly important to those in similar relationships. If you’re an interracial couple, you’ve probably thought about the lighting and how it may or may not affect your pictures (more specially; if you’re a black and white couple). Well, I can honestly tell you that you have nothing to worry about. I am black (originally from Ghana) and my husband is Caucasian and that miniscule fact had absolutely no effect on our pictures. They were simply lovely. To sum up; we felt tremendously blessed by the incredible talents of every vendor on our wedding day and we are especially thankful for our amazing photographer; Carmen.
First off I have to mention that my Photographer, Carmen Rubio, came highly recommended when Alan and I were in search of a photographer.
Alan and I discussed in the beginning of the whole planning process that we were not going to skimp on photography or music. We sat with plenty of inexpensive and plenty of expensive photographers, but never felt 100% confident until we met with Carmen.Her prices are reasonable; she is very flexible, easy to get in touch with and eager to answer questions and to make you feel comfortable.
Our engagement shoot is when Alan and I felt the relief that we had made the right decision. We had so much fun and felt so comfortable we were able to be ourselves and she made us look good : )
On our wedding day she arrived on time and ready to work. I never felt any pressure or anxiety with her, her confidence really relaxed me. After the portrait photographs we didn’t even notice her or the assistant, they both stayed out of the way and got tons of beautiful photographs and didn’t miss anything. Carmen is NOT that “in your face obnoxious” kind of photographer it was perfect for us. She really is a great photographer we couldn’t be happier.
Carmen was: Nice, efficient, fun, professional, punctual and an amazing photographer/artist and to top it off affordable.
