Testimonials for our portraits of Families, Pet Lovers, Dogs, Other Pets, and Headshots
“Our family photo by the Carls is priceless to me. They have a wonderful way with all of the animals. With their creativity and patience, Josh and I were able to have our whole family (with 6 dogs and 3 cats at that time) in one beautiful family photo. It is all of our joy captured in one image. Look at this wonderful outcome, courtesy of Vicki and Craig Carl! I love their work. They also did a wonderful job on our wedding!”

~ Linda Naugle
"So unbelievably happy with my pictures! I had a photo shoot at a pet store with my bichon 13 or 14 yrs ago. They were so kind to my nervous little girl and I love her pictures. Last year at almost 17yrs old I lost my girl. I also gained a Pomeranian puppy. Not sure if I would find the same photographer I searched and to my joy I found them again. This time I brought my little guy to the studio and while he certainly didn't act like the pro he was captured so beautifully and friends think he looks like he knew exactly what to do in each pose. This is just how wonderful Carl photography is my boy was not cooperating but they made him look effortless in his pictures. Not only did I have 2 great experiences I had a surprise little book of both my babies in my package today! They still have my little girls pictures and made the extra effort for some forgotten pictures. Thank you! Beautiful property a sweet couple!"

"It has been several years now since the Carl family began taking photos at my dog training facility. The day goes smoothly as moms, dads and kids and especially their family pets come through the door throughout the day.
Vicki checks them in with a cheerful smile; sometimes Brandon is available to give the dogs a pet. And Craig is at the ready behind the camera to apply his expertise and knowledge of photography.
We sometimes hear, 'I just know Rover won't sit still for this.' When these questioning customers see their proofs the comments become, 'These are wonderful, amazing, I just love these.' I have had my dogs photographed separately and together numerous times and treasure each picture. "I invited my granddaughter to join me for a holiday pose.
This is a special and beautiful keepsake. Craig Carl never fails me, and I am always totally pleased with his work.”

“'WOW' was my first impression when the pictures arrived! Having the studio in their home is great. Odie is normally pretty active but he settled in and the Carls used his personality to their advantage. We have fantastic photos as a result. I wasn't sure what to expect but we both had fun! Thank you so much!”
