Carmen started as a photographer after immigrating to the U.S. at age 15. She built her portfolio as a popular Hispanic photographer for private events and made a name for herself quickly. After the success of her photography business, Carmen opened a Bridal Shop in 1986 serving the Southwest Houston area. As her skills and clientele expanded, she opened Carmen's Banquet Hall in 1998. She now manages the Bridal Shop after son took over the business in 2012.
Her consistent passion for events shows in everything she does. You will often find her at a Quinceañera or wedding at Carmen's Banquet Hall as she continues to be involved to this day. She lives in the greater Houston area and often can be found at her bridal shop. She is very proud of everything her son has accomplished in life.
