Dear Carol,

Thank you so much for taking me on such short notice, and making my photo look so beautiful. Everyone says you captured the warmth in my personality, and I truly appreciate that as it was published in the OC Register last weekend. It must have worked, as several new clients have called asking for my help. You are the best photographer, and I will continually send referrals your way!

There are many professional photographers to choose from but what makes Carol Bridges unique is that she truly does capture ‘Treasured Moments’ with her artistic eye, rapport with her subjects of all ages, and technical skills that produce memorable images. Carol recently accompanied ‘Santa Claus’ to 6 houses on Calle Marta Court in RSM, wonderfully capturing the ‘treasured moment’ of small children, big children and families still believing in the spirit of Christmas.

Hi Carol,

Thanks again for your phenomenal work with all of our pictures. We've done engagement, boudoir, professional, AND pet pictures with you – all of them came out very much to our liking!!! You truly are a professional in your trade - you made us feel comfortable at any place and in every scenario. I'll admit this can be difficult with a dog on the beach, but even Smokey smiled for you J It's long overdue I told you how much we appreciate you capturing all of our special moments. The portrait on canvas turned out GREAT – we are getting so many compliments. Better than that, the house now feels like "our home" with it hanging. Thanks again – you are our photographer for life.

Hi Carol,

Just wanted to say how pleased my wife and I were with the photos of our son and how well they compared with the ones from my youth. It was a project that I had wanted to do for years..(apparently we should have done it a year ago at least to catch my son at the more equal age!)..but I am so glad you were able to understand what it was that I was looking for and to have it turn out so perfectly.

Thank you again for your expertise and also for your generosity toward our cause to raise funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in honor of our son, Zachary.

Your first born is always over photographed with most of the pictures not worth sharing. Carol Bridges has a gifted eye to capture moments you will want to share with the world and treasure forever. Her loving nature and demeanor make the process a very natural experience. We can't say enough about Carol as person and the wonderful images she has been able to capture of our baby Cadence and the entire family.

Thank you for your beautiful work. I will always think of you whenever I hear of someone needing a photographer.

I love Carol's photography. She sat with me and figured out what kinds of pictures I wanted taken at our wedding, what kinds of group shots - she suggested ideas that I had not even thought of. She went several different times to look at the settings where the pre-wedding pictures were going to be taken as well as the wedding and reception. On our special day - I did not even think about something that was going to be missed - it wasn't. Use Carol - you will be blessed.

When you’re searching for a photographer, you look for someone who has strong technical skills and a personality that you can work with. Since you can see for yourself the quality of Treasured Moment’s portfolio, I’d like to speak to the second ingredient. The importance of this “chemistry” is underlined when I recall my brother’s wedding. There was a moment when he turned to me and whispered (through his fake smile) that he was going to lose his mind if that “annoying photographer says even one more word.”

Well, that’s not a scenario you have to worry about experiencing with Carol. From setting up your appointment, to ensuring that she understands the exact look you’re after, to sitting next to you at the computer while she’s editing your photo, she is extraordinarily accommodating. In fact, I’d characterize my experience with her as one of warmth. She just bubbles with happiness and is comfortable to be with. Not an easy task when you much prefer being behind the camera to being in front of it! Even so, I do have a favorite “on film” moment. A few moments after I told her how much I hate doing a head shot, she said “Say I HATE THIS!” She snapped the shot and the rest is history.

Our photo session with Carol was so much fun, we all hated for it to end. There were 13 of us in the family portrait. We all know getting 13 people to hold the pose, smile, and not blink is a difficult task. To challenge Carol further, we added some teenagers, some children, and some toddlers. Carol did a fantastic job! She captured the innocence of the young children and the family spirit in the group. She made the photo session memorable and full of laughes. The pictures came out great! We can't help but ooh and aah when we see them!

Carol, thanks for the great pictures. On top of that, thank you for the great memory my family shared during the photo session.

Dear Carol,


Please accept our heartfelt thanks for the photos you took of all of us in our office.  We know getting all of us to come out looking good wasn’t easy.  We found you professional, creative, easy to work with and fun.  Your equipment was professional and obviously of the highest quality.  You were on time and efficient.  It’s an added treat to see the pictures immediately and then have you enhance the details on the computer.


When all is said and done the bottom line is that it is difficult to get one person looking fabulous but you made all of us look marvelous!


Thank You,

Carol Bridges is the best! She’s friendly, creative and a real pro. Armed with only our vague description of what we wanted, her camera and her talent, she captured more than just images on film. Carol picked the perfect setting. Worked with us on the time table Finally, with her infinite patience, she let the children relax and enjoy themselves thus creating the perfect atmosphere. She captured more than just the images. She captured the souls and spirits of our children so we can cherish them forever. She gave us a lot more than we expected. She is our photographer from now on!

Carol is a professional who pays attention to detail, even when she is photographing in an area she is not familiar with.  When she took pictures of me Belly Dancing for my business, she knew how to plan the background, the lightening, the mood, everything, to set the stage for a successful photo experience.  The result was the Best professional pictures I have ever had taken. And, I have received many compliments on these photos.

As a graphic artist, I am very particular about photographers – especially when they are taking MY photo. Carol not only did an outstanding job, she was easy to work with and took the time necessary to get me just what I asked for. I would recommend Carol to anyone looking for a quality photographer who cares about her clients.

Thanks Carol! I was very reluctant to have my photo on my web site simply because I'm not very photogenic at all but you made such a difference. Having you direct from behind the lens made the end result very nice. I look so professional because of you! Thanks much.

Thank you again for the fabulous in-studio family portrait you took of me and my two teenage boys. You did a great job making everyone feel relaxed and comfortable, I loved the way you took photos of such a big variety of poses, and we ended up with so many good pictures that it was hard to choose our favorite! You’re the best!

Carol Bridges of Treasured Moments Photography has created the most magical and magnificent memories imaginable of our wedding day. From the scheduling and coordination before the big day, to the organization and participation at the event, Carol was flexible and available, just a pleasure to work with, no request was too much and we really worked her very hard! Carol instilled a professional quality to everything she weaved together for our pictures, we are seeing things that we didn't even notice but she captured beautifully. We could not be more thrilled with her work and what she has captivated for us of this special day.
