"I first got the chance to meet Carmen at my best friend’s wedding. Since then Carmen has taken our engagement, wedding, maternity, newborn and family photos. She is an amazing photographer. You can tell she loves what she does, and she makes sure your images are what you want. She would not give you a picture that she herself would not hang on her wall, so that makes her pictures and the quality amazing. Not only is she a fantastic photographer, she is also an awesome human being. She is funny, and keeps things light. She is great at finding the perfect pose and making sure you look fantastic. She makes taking pictures fun and not an awkward situation. She will always be our photographer as long as she is willing to take pictures! I highly recommend her to everyone who needs a photographer; you will not be disappointed at all!" Kimberly Johnson
Thank-you for these very kind words! Over the years, it has been great to see you grow as a couple and now as a family, it is a joy and a pleasure to work with you and we really do have fun. Thank you!! - Carmen
"There are not enough words to express how thankful I am that you came all the way to Edmonton to capture the very first moments with our newborn baby boy. I was so excited when you said you would come and even more ecstatic when you were there. Our little guy was only 3 hours old when you took those priceless pictures of our family. Your images are so beautiful and you captured all the little details that would otherwise be blurry memories as time goes on. Looking back I am even more grateful because on day 2 of our son's life we found out he had a heart murmur and on day 6 we were told he would need open heart surgery to repair a large hole in his heart. But on that first day you captured the pure blissful emotions of excitement and love for our little baby; without fear, anxiety or worry that we will never get back. Now that he has gone through his surgery and is healing like a champion we are still thankful that we were blessed to have you there with us on day one. We will treasure these images forever, thank you so much for preserving those moments for us. " The Eckel Family
What an honour to be part of such an event, even better to see that he is a healthy, happy, growing boy! So thankful that I have got to know you and your wonderful family! Thank You! - Carmen
"The images she returned went above and beyond our expectations, and we've received many positive comments from our member businesses about her work. We wouldn't hesitate to contract with Carmen should the opportunity arise again in the future.
The entire process of working with Carmen was a delight. She was very open to our suggestions and shot selections, and supplemented those with her own thoughts and ideas. This collaborative effort paid off in her finished product. Her communication with us throughout the entire process - from shot selections to production and delivery of the final product - was top notch and very welcomed.
Carmen's professionalism is refreshing, her eye for detail is sharp and her abilities behind the lens are unquestioned. I'd highly recommend her to other businesses and organizations looking to build their image libraries with quality images from a true professional." Casey Ressler - Marketing and Communications Manager, Mat-Su Convention & Visitors Bureau
It was truly my pleasure to be part of this project; the area is diverse, surprising and stunningly beautiful! What an amazing area to promote and I hope to be back, thank you again Casey! - Carmen
I would like to thank Carmen Williams for the great photo shoot last night! She has the right equipment and experience to handle your photography needs. Thanks! - Travis Van Ember
Thank you Travis and congratulations on all your efforts, great to see your progress in pictures!! - Carmen
You were an absolute joy to work with! Thank you very much for your relaxed, humorous and patient personality. The comments were so nice to hear about you from our guests. You're a very professional, genuine person and I hope to be working with you more in the future! Love, Mark and Lisa Rabel
What a meaningful day to be part of, it was truly an honour. Your guests, family and wedding party were all so much fun to work with and I loved being there to hear more of your stories. Work in the future? More Rabel's? ;) Thanks again!! Carmen
The weather was turning worse by the second and our nerves were shot knowing you might not get to take the photos. When we pulled up, you were all ready, put both of us at ease immediately and you were actually glad for the weather. The stress I had felt completely melted away. You went right to work having Britanny do several poses in several different places. You 'saw' places that would be a cool background that was perfect for the picture. You 'saw' what others didn't see and we had no idea why you were taking a pose in that place. It actually rained after taking a bunch of pictures and we were done but had to wait because of car trouble, and while we were waiting, the sky cleared up, you suggested taking some more pictures and those were some of our favorites. You could have just sat and waited with the rest of us, but you gave 110% and wasted no time. We are very happy with our pictures. I just wish we lived closer so when it's time for our Son's pictures, you'd be here to take them! Thank you Carmen for being so spontaneous with your schedule and working around ours; we SO appreciate you and we really appreciate the quality of work. BEAUTIFUL! :) - LuAnne Smith
What fun to work with you and to get to meet your beautiful daughter too! All I can say is that I will be back in CO so let me know about those future photo sessions!! :) Carmen
As time passes. . .
We have had our pictures taken by Carmen many times including my pregnancy pictures, newborn pictures of my son and through his first year as well as pictures of my twin daughters. Carmen is very professional and my children love her. She is able to capture beautiful pictures for us to cherish for years to come. Tina Badgerow
It is such an honour to become "part of" a family; thank you for sharing yours with me Tina! Carmen
Something to talk about!
I am very happy with the pictures that Carmen took of my family. Carmen gave me my prints quickly and showed me the proofs the very next day. She has wonderful studio lighting which reflects on her pictures. She is creative and easy to work with. She is a talented lady. I will be getting Carmen to take our pictures again. Heather Naujok
Thank you Heather! You were all so much fun to work with too! Carmen
Carmen Williams has captured the true spirit and excitement of our Thunder in the Valley Drag Race event. Through the pictures that are on the website one could feel the heat and hear the roars of both the cars and the crowds. Carmen brings a very professional, fun, caring attitude to her work. Pictures can speak 1000 words and Carmen’s work is an example of just this. Thanks Carmen for your fantastic ideas and great artistry. Mardi - Executive of Thunder in the Valley Drag Race
I have throughly enjoyed all 4 years of covering this event! The photographers I bring with me love it too! Looking forward to 2013!! - Carmen
Carmen Williams took our family photos this year. We are a large group of twelve with children, teenagers, adults and yes, even seniors. Carmen made it a very relaxing and enjoyable experience. We were so pleased with the pictures and everything she did for us! Thanks Carmen! Alex & Gayleen Blais
You were all so much fun to work with too! Thank you for the fun afternoon! - Carmen
Girls will be girls
Carmen has been the first "professional" photographer I have gone to with my kids. She was great to work with and was extremely amazing with my kids...whom have trouble sitting still for anything! She took some amazing pictures, and I look forward to using her again in the future! Jenn Waronek
Cute girls are always fun to "catch"!! It was a pleasure to work with you! - Carmen
