Our experience with Anne was wonderful from start to finish. She was so professional, very kind, and took great care of us.
She was a terrific communicator and was always early or right on time. She sent preview photos to us within a quick timeframe, and sent our final photos much quicker than we ever imagined.
She did a fabulous job, was wonderful to work with, and so very accommodating. Our group enjoyed spending the afternoon with her, too.
We love our photos and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to friends and family.

We used Anne Marie Carson for our engagement session and wedding photos. Through the entire experience Anne was a consummate professional. She was extremely patient and worked closely with us on every detail along the way. Anne was very accommodating and fulfilled all of our requests to ensure our happiness. Her pictures were absolutely stunning and we could not be any more pleased. She was everywhere, yet she was hardly noticed. She was so friendly that we did not even consider her the “photographer” because she was one of our friends. We would definitely recommend Anne for anyone. Thank you so much Anne for everything that you have done for our family and for the everlasting picture treasures that will have forever. Steve & Nikki

Anne is amazing, she did our engagement photos and prints which turned out absolutely beautiful. And on top of being a wonderful photographer she was very friendly and helpful when helping me find a few beautiful locations in Austin to take our photos. She was very professional and I couldn't be happier at how our photos turned out. :)

Anne did such a wonderful job at our wedding! She listened to what we wanted, asking plenty of questions before the wedding day. On the day of the wedding, she was prompt, attentive and very professional. She was so good at fitting into the wedding crowd that I actually forgot she was there, working for much of the event. The result of her work, however, was perfect! She captured so many sweet moments before, during and after the ceremony. We are thrilled with the quality of her work and would highly recommend her.

I simply cannot say enough about Anne! She voluntarily took on the job of my wedding because my original photographer was rushed to the hospital a week prior to my event. Whew... I'm sure you can imagine how stressful that was for a bride! But Anne contacted me immediately, provided reassurance, helpful questions and ideas, and a genuine eagerness to do anything and everything to fulfill my hopes and desires. It was clear to me then but even more so now that this is more than a job to Anne....it's a passion, she enjoys it and she cares genuinely about her work and the people she does the work for. She is extremely kind, flexible, generous, and fun to work with. I researched and considered several different photographers when I began my wedding planning and it is definitely one of the most important pieces to do right! Please believe me, you will not be disappointed and your money will be well spent if you choose to go with Anne. She goes above and beyond in every aspect of the job....from her email correspondences, to her ideas for creative shots you wouldn't have thought of, to her final dvd presentation of your photos. I give her my very highest ratings as both a photographer and as a person!

Anne photographed our engagement pictures and was the second photographer on our wedding day. We actually lucked into finding her, and it was an absolute blessing that we did. She is so laid back and easy to work with. She is also very attentive, supportive and helped us beyond our wedding day. I cannot express how easy Anne makes taking pictures… reiterated by the fact that my husband, who hates pictures, actually had fun at our engagement session. Anne let us run wild in Austin, and we spent the day laughing and taking great pictures. I LOVED the finished product, I LOVED working with Anne and I definitely recommend her as a photographer.

If you are looking for a photographer par excellence, if you are looking for someone who can be trusted to capture the most memorable moments of your life, and if you are looking for someone with an eye for the angle and the light, then you need look no further…You have found the right person….Ann Marie…
My own firsthand experience of Ann Marie’s outstanding work was when I hired her to photograph the event I was putting together to celebrate Hindu New Year’s day combined with my son’s Birthday… The photography challenge I had for her stretched beyond her experience zone of wedding photography…My event location was my backyard decorated with color and fervor to give the feeling of an ancient Indian palace; the guests were all American, all dressed in traditional colorful Indian attire; and the events ranged from thousands of years of old traditional customs involving both the hosts and the guests, to the kids dancing to the beats of Bollywood music …
Capturing such a fast paced eclectic event, with an eye and feel for the right moment was a challenge that I was not ready to entrust to anyone with an expensive camera and a light….Only a great photographer could deliver the results I was looking for, but the results that Ann Marie delivered were beyond my expectation…She had captured every indelible moment with the perfect angle and lighting, yet she seemed so inconspicuous during the event itself….She clearly knew when to click, what to save, and what/how much to edit – to produce a set of digital memories that will remain as a treat to the eyes and the mind forever in the future….Every time I see the pictures of the events, the whole evening comes to life right in front of my eyes…Only an extra ordinary photographer can create such lifelike memories and Ann Marie is that one-of-a-kind photographer…. Last but not the least, her ebulient nature and friendly personality made her more of a guest than a photographer which to me was very important as it made the communication that much more effective...
A parting advice: amidst all the stresses involved in wedding or event planning, you can be assured to have one less worry with Ann Marie’s photography….

Anne was amazing. Having a good photographer for our wedding was very important to me, so I looked in to a lot of different people to shoot our wedding. Anne's portfolio stood out to me. I felt like she had the skill and was someone I could trust to capture our wedding beautifully. I emailed her and was immediately impressed by her professionalism. She always emails back within 24 hours (which definitely helped ease some stress during the wedding planning) and she was so easy to work with. A major selling point for me was her ability to be professional without making me feel intimidated. I'm extremely shy with people I don't know and have trouble talking to strangers; She was completely understanding and was happy to do most of our communicating via email, because that was how I was most comfortable.
Working up to the wedding day with her was smooth and thorough. She was very organized and had me fill out a questionnaire so that I could have all the important shots I wanted planned out. I felt like she really knew what she was doing, and she definitely did.
On the wedding day, she showed up on time and enthusiastic. She got amazing shots, and I'm incredibly proud of our wedding photos. She and her assistant photographer were amazing and efficient.
After the wedding, Anne got our photos to us sooner than I had expected! Which was a pleasant surprise. She posted our gallery online, which was password protected, so I could send the link to friends and family. Then, we got our DVD's in the mail, which she assembled so beautifully: They came in a gift box, in a nice case, and each DVD had one of our wedding photos printed on it. It is such a great way to store our (hundreds!) of amazing wedding photos!
In the DVD are all of our photos in Print quality, and Web quality, so that we can have smaller versions to post online.
I would recommend this photographer for sure. She is amazing.
