Al and Carmen are awesome! They were able to get my 1 year old to smile and he does not stay still! I plan on returning for my very own bday pics in a few months, highly recommend!

my father's health has not been the greatest this last year so for his 79th birthday, we wanted to have family portraits taken. carmen and crew were so very friendly, accommodating, patient, professional, knowledgeable... the list goes on! as their portfolio demonstrates, all of our photographs came out beautifully! we actually had to have the session at the hospital but you would never realise we were in a hospital setting at all. :) would definitely use their services again and highly recommend to anyone looking for an awesome photographer!

I have used Al Torres Photography about 4 times now from everything to my wedding, family photos and professional headshots. They are so professional, excellent quality of work, and had such special presentations of them all. They make you feel like your day is just as important to them as it is you. I would NEVER get photos complete by anyone but Al Torres....unless they retire. :) More...

Great photography. Highly recommend. Al takes the time to get to know the client and literally to put them in the most flattering light. I was impressed with not only how good the photos looked, but how quickly he turned them around. Thanks Al! More...

Al Torres Photography was amazing from start to finish. He made my husband and I feel extremely comfortable as he shot our engagement and wedding photos. He also made me feel amazing during my bridal photoshoot. He got us the photos from each session in a very timely manner. We love the energy and passion behind his work! More...

Awesome experience!  From My first call gathering information to me walking out after a Comfortable, Professional, Fun, Experience.  I was extremely nervous about the whole ordeal, as i'm not one that enjoys getting my photo taken.  This has changed.... a little, due to Carmen and Al! They are so friendly, and made me feel so at ease, that the session flew by!  Al is very creative, and working with him I just trusted his eye and direction.  I showed up with choices, lots, from scarves, belts, jewelry, touch up makeup, different colored underpinnings,  depending on which color top, bottom was recommended. So being prepared, definitely helps.What helps even more is Carmen, she knew instantly which outfit would work, and recommended things i had not even thought of.  They are a True Team and their ideas bounce off one another that make the experience even more comfortable and fun!I would definitely return and recommend anyone looking for Professional Photographer to hire Al and Carmen.  P.S. Not quite sure if people use "underpinnings" any more! Lingerie, as in panties and bras!Some people may choose to use Spanx, heck i don't know !  What a pleasure meeting such a Great Team!  Thanks for an awesome experience! More...

Al is simply amazing!!! I have been following him on Facebook for several years - always in awe of his ability to really capture a moment. So, recently when I decided to have some photos taken, I could not wait to place the call to his studio. From start (thank you Carmen!) to finish, the entire experience was unbelievable and the photos were just simply beautiful. I am very camera shy, and yet Al's warm demeanor put me at ease, and as such, and he captured ME - my personality. I was not just photo of me. He is a true master of his craft. I have booked him for my upcoming wedding this fall! THE BEST in Houston! More...

Love love love ❤️ this studio. I have been using them for years. Al the photographer is on point. I usually hate having my picture taken but he knows exactly what he's doing and makes it a pleasant experience. And Carmen, the studio manager rocks. She is friendly and personable and runs everything smoothly. I will definitely continue to use this studio. More...

Where to start. So if you are like me and get nervous when it comes to having your pictures taken let me tell you that there is no better place (even if you are not like me) to go. From setting up the appointment to receiving the finished product it was an absolutely pleasant and enjoyable experience. AL is such a master with the camera and you can see and hear his passion for his craft as you work with him. There is a reason why everyone goes here beyond the experience he truly cares about his work and that does make all the difference. Carmen was kind and pleasant - they make a wonderful team. Any chance I have to take pictures this is where I will be having them taken.I would highly recommend having them take your pictures it makes a difference. More...

I absolutely love Al and Carmen. Hands down they take the best pics (I've only done the studio ones, for wedding portraits and then family shots) and I swear by them. They are in a very unassuming strip center over by Pappasitos by Hillcroft and Richmond, but don't be deceived by that. My fave shots were the ones on concrete with the back garage door open (any photographer knows that's the lighting that makes you look your bestest!) These guys know what they're doing and I do believe they are quite reasonable. You can walk away with TONS of shots for reasonable cost and the prints are high quality. Highly, highly recommend!

Al and Carmen took care of everything from our engagement photos to the wedding. They are wonderful to work with and very easy talk to and explain what you are looking for. They captured moments on the wedding day that I didn't even remember and that is exactly what I was looking for! The range of albums that they offer are endless and has something that everyone would love. I will definately be using them again in the future! More...

On short notice I hired Al & Carmen to photograph our engagement party. They took amazing photos of me & my fiance and of the engagement party. They created a gorgeous linen photo album, posted the photos online for our friends & family to enjoy & as a bonus they created a DVD of the event with music in the background. Awesome! More...

You absolutely get what you pay for & Al Torres Photography is worth every penny! Hands down, the most impressive duo I've ever seen. They are so easy to work with & a joy to watch. They have perfected every detail when it comes to capturing the memories of any special occassion. My matron of honor (9 months preggers at the wedding) even used them for maternity photos throughout the course of her pregnancy. There is no doubt in my mind that we have found our photographers for life. More...

When we looked for a photographer for our wedding and saw Al's web page we knew he would be the one. And then we met with Carmen and she showed us more samples and my mom said ""this photographers on top of his game"" We are so excited about our upcomming wedding now that we booked our photographer.

Al's use of the lens to capture life images you would never think possible is stunning... simply stated yet true. Pictures Al and Carmen have tastefully displayed in their studio and on their web site are a testament to his skill and artistry as a photographer, which are unsurpassed and superb. Look for yourself. He is truly the best photographer I have ever known and I do not say that lightly. I am a Naval Officer and I have traveled the world many times over in my 29 years of service. I have seen and been with many great photographers in my career, including the wonderful men and women of the combat photo teams and naval Information offices. Never have I seen the talent to which Al applies in his shoots and photos. He is genuinely caring, calming, professional, and exacting. His ability to pin point the perfect angle, light and posture to produce outstanding pictures are amazing, even on the fly in natural settings! The story of my exposure to Al?s true gifts is unforgettable. I came to Houston to receive treatment for my daughter at Texas Children's Hospital. My daughter unfortunately passed away there. My family and I had been staying in a nearby apartment and we decided to get a photo shoot done with our daughter before she went in to the hospital. Carmen and Al immediately put us at ease the minute we walked in. When we saw the proofs prior to her passing, we were floored. Al's use of available lighting in his studio and spectacular colors through flash filters captured our souls. My daughters eyes were so vivid and life like we can still almost touch her right through the image. Her main headshot was framed and placed at the head of her bed while she was in the ICU. Every doctor and nurse who attended to her was struck by the photo and the way she seemed to be watching them. It is now the centerpiece of our home and I can say the most shared and sacred photo of my wife and I. Thanks Al and Carmen for the everlasting memory! You are the BEST! More...

I've been modeling since I was 10 years old. Most of the photos I use to represent myself (portfolio, comp cards, etc) are from Al's shoots. Even the one I put on myspace for my fam & friends. Not only does Al know how to bring out the very best of you--he does it in a way that still looks like the real you! It couldn't be any better! I'm always referring friends and strangers to Al. From engagment & weddings to friends that want to get into modeling, I send them all to check out Al. I always tell everyone he's the best and very reasonable for such fabulous photos! If I ever cut my hair or change my look, first thing I'll do is go back to Al for my new headshots & photos. Can't say enough. :) Rachel More...

I worked with Al many times and let me say this, there is no fluff or tricks with him or his shooting style, JUST STRAIGHT OUT AND NATURAL, the best i seen.

Al will walk in with a ""normal lens"" ,Photographers you know what i mean, and he will shoot the best images ,PERIOD. More...

Al and Carmen shot my bridal portraits and wedding in March of 2005. I was incredibly pleased with their proffessionalism and attention to detail they gave both shoots. From the moment you arrive at the studio until the final shot they are constantly making sure you are comfortable and relaxed. I think this is why they get such amazing photographs. I especially liked the candid pictures Al took at the wedding. Half the time we didn't even know he was taking our picture which captured my favorite photographs. I highly recommend Al Torres Photography to anyone looking for a photographer to work with for a lifetime. More...

They make you feel so welcome each time. Al is so creative and always gets great shots. I have used him most recently for shots of my little girl. He gets great shots even on her not so happy days. Carmen is great with suggesting other little great things like the album I am putting together for my little girl. I highly recommend them for their professionalism, creativity, and their ability to make you feel right at home. They are awesome and well worth the trip we make in town to the studio!!! Very reasonably priced...and willing to work with you so you take home exactly what you wanted..no more, no less! More...

If you have ideas, he lets you give your input which adds a personal touch to the photograph style or props.
