Carmelo was very easy to work with and very kind in figuring out the services and price that would work best for our budget and expectations. He always responded quickly via e-mail and was very reassuring throughout the planning process. We are thrilled with the pictures he took, especially the candid and creative shots! I thought it was incredibly kind of him to make sure and give us our disc of photos before we left San Juan so we'd have them to share when we got home. Would definitely recommend his services!

Carmelo was very professional and worked with us from Day 1! Always responding to our emails and did an excellent job during the wedding day!

REVIEW EDITED...

Well I had the review as a 5 out of 5 until after the wedding. We were married on July 6th... and were promised the video by the time we got back from our cruise on July 14th...and we didn't. We told him we were having a viewing party back home on July 20th and needed the video by then. He apologized and after back and forth emails on July 17th he was working on Final touches and he would send the video by overnight fed Ex on the 18th or 19th... I didn't hear from him til the day of the viewing party for the video and the video was sent by a drop box link. We had no choice but to deal with it... We upload the link... that's when things get worst... my wife's name was spelled wrong in the opening of the video... the video transition were just bouncing back and forth from different camera angles.. not smooth at all. We had our family give interviews... the last few interviews... were fast forwarded... one person even got cut off during her interview and the rest was played after someone else spoke. We expressed our displeasure with Carmelo and he said he would take care of our request to fix the video. After going back and forth by email, I advised him I had family from out of town coming on August 11th... can we have the video by then.... He said he would have it by the middle of the week (August 8-9)... It is August 11th and after several emails and phone calls..still have no response or video. Last I heard from him was an email on August 3rd.

DeMitri was great!!. My husband and I are from Texas, so we were nervous about finding a good photographer and paying an arm and a leg for the services. When Cory (our Minister) told us about him, we immediately sought him out. From the very start he was extremely helpful. DeMitri was very understanding that we were on a very tight budget for our trip, and helped us by working out a payment plan. He took into consideration any photo ideas we had, and remembered my favorites on our wedding day. The night before we left Puerto Rico, he met up with us and gave us a few of the pictures, so we would not go home empty handed. By what we have seen of the few so far, the rest should come out exquisitely!! We were SO very lucky to have come across him, and we would definitely work with him again!!

I was planning to not have a photographer at my wedding until I saw Demetri in the lobby of my hotel in San Juan taking pictures of another wedding couple. My wedding was the next day and he happen to be available!! He was on time and extremely creative with his pictures and videography. I enjoyed the experience and would recommend his services to anyone. Thank you Demetri.

Carmelo made me feel like a total PRINCESS on my wedding day. It was just my fiancé and myself, but I could not have enjoyed myself more. His suggestions and ability to find the perfect shots and effects were unbelievable. He allowed me to take my time and made it all feel very natural and fun. By the end, I felt like a model and didn't want the camera to stop.

My husband and I were fortunate enough to meet Carmelo when we attended our friends destination wedding, and we knew instantly he would be the photographer for our wedding. We loved his contemporary style and he truly puts his heart and soul into his work. Carmelo communicated with us throughout the entire process, and he became more than a photographer he became our friend. My mother has cancer and was unable to attend the ceremony and so he paid close attention to special details to make it special for her and us. When we arrived at our hotel, all of our electronic belongings were stolen from the hotel and he supported us by communicating with the hotel to try to recover our articles. Since they were unable to recover our belongings he suggested to the hotel that they pay for a video to share with my mother and the hotel agreed. Without Carmelo, my mother would have never been a part of our special day and for that we will be forever grateful. Everyone said it was the best wedding slide show they have ever seen. He is truly an artist, and he captured our hearts. We highly recommend Carmelo and his crew!

Melo’s creativity and originality made for beautiful photography of our wedding. We planned our wedding in Puerto Rico via the internet. Melo was recommended to us by his uncle who was a pastor that we initially made contact with when planning our wedding. We are forever grateful for the recommendation as Melo captured photos that we absolute love! Melo actually arranged a pre-wedding shoot and recommended our ceremony site, which ended up being a private beach which provided for beautiful scenery (despite the rain). He was attentive to listening to our desires and took the time to get to know us as a couple to create photos that tell a story, which our families enjoy. We highly recommend Melo as your wedding photographer……..
