Vendor Review - A+ - Boudoir Session

Hi Ladies,

Although my wedding date is far far away I had to jump at an opportunity of a boudoir session with Studio by Carmen. I got a $300+ session for $59 on couptessa(my new obsession). Throughout the session, Carmen was so good at making me feel comfortable and picking flattering poses that suited me. Well, yesterday I went to see the pictures and OMG I almost couldn't believe it was me. I am so happy with the outcome and can't wait to see the finished product(black photo book). Ideally, I wanted to give my fiance the book on our wedding day but of course I cannot wait so I will be giving it to him in October for his birthday. Overall, Carmen was great to work with and I am hoping to do our engagement and wedding pictures with her!!

Has anyone used her for wedding or engagement and if so how was your experience? And since I am in the very beginning stages of planning, how are her prices compared to other vendors? I appreciate any and all tips/comments.

xoxo, Ceci

    Carmen is my photographer and she is wonderful.  We did our engagement pics with her in Gainesville and loved the pictures!  You are in good hands with her.  Her prices are very reasonable, I believe her most basic package is $2,500.

    ARose: yes the photo books are seperate, she has different sizes and types according to your budget.

    Dee: our wedding is not until 03/12 it's so far away :-/ do you really think I should wait???? What's everyone else's thoughts should I wait a year & half?


    Crystal: thanks for your comment!! Would I be able to see your pics? Did you shop around to compare prices or was she your first choice?

    I figured that.  Could you send me how much you paid so I have an idea?  I wanted to have a book instead of just the 1 picture that was provided with the deal.

    i LOVE Carmen. I almost hired her as my photographer. Her prices were very competitive and good and her work is great!

    And you MUST wait till the wedding day.  Ask Carmen to hold making the album till much closer to the wedding (at least after his bday, Holidays, and Valentine's Day) so you won't give in to your huge desire to give it to him earlier!!!!!!!!!!!!

    GL =)
