Carrigg Photography and Design
Our company recently hired Carrigg Photography & Design to take photo's of some of our screening products in this year's street of Dreams. They were extremely professional and showed up on time for the photo shoot. We had some kids in the photo's and they were really good with the kids and capturing what we wanted in the photo's. They had the photo's back to us within a few days ready for print and posting to our website. We would absolutely use Carrigg Photography again in the future.
Description Of Work:
We were in a rush to have new product photos taken, a new logo designed, advertising created for a local magazine, a pull out display banner designed and laid out, post cards, business cards, stickers for our product, and a new brochure.
Susan jumped right on it. She was prompt, professional, and got right back to us to schedule the shoot. She immediately began on our new logo, and had sample artwork for me within a few days. She scheduled the photo shoot, and she and her husband Steve did an absolutely fantastic job with the photos We were under a 4 day deadline to get our ad created, pick photos to use in it, and have it to the magazine for publication. She beat the deadline by 2 days. She also worked with me on some changes we requested at the last minute. Next she jumped on our stickers, business cards, and the pop up banner. All were done with amazing speed and the work was done flawlessly. Every contact we made she got back to us in record time.

I could never, never, ever have done this myself. My husband and I were looking to get a logo for our blog. Something unique but not off the wall. The idea of going to a graphic designer was daunting and we didn’t know what to expect. This was way outside our wheel house. When I met with Susan Carrigg she made me feel instantly at ease. She communicated with us in a way that we could understand and relate to. She explained the process of actually designing a logo and the information she needed to catch our vision. She also spent time with us thinking ahead and positioning us with a logo in formats that would allows us to use it online, in print etc. etc. I thought there was just jpg. and pdf. Susan really took care of our needs and was the expert for us. Plus, what an artist!! The excitement she had about our design ideas and the time she took in making it just right for us as well as constantly improving on her last design (which was all on her personal time) got me more and more excited about the final design. This was something we never could have done ourselves. The quality of the finished product, having all the right formats, and having a ton of fun…Thank you Susan!
I have always been impressed by Susan’s photography. She is a very skillful, talented and imaginative photographer. Her artistic flair is noticeable in her photographs whether they are of an everyday subject or a bride and a groom.
I have had the pleasure of working with Susan as a printer and have noticed the same talent in her graphic work. As a graphic designer her work reflects the same skill and artistic creativity. She has a great design and color sense which is reflected in her projects. Susan is very cheerful and pleasant to work with. I look forward to working with her in future.
We recently hired Carrigg Photography & Design to take photos of our clinic space, and we are so thrilled with the results. We want to use these photos for various marketing projects, so the quality of the images are very important to us. Susan, one of the owners, met with me prior to the shoot and listened carefully to my needs. She assured me that all my requests would be addressed. I am most impressed by the level of professionalism this company has. They were punctual to all appointments, and on the day of the shoot they set up equipment with minimal disturbance to the rest of the clinic. Everything was left spotless once they had finished the session We hardly knew they were there!
Within 1 week, they provided me with high quality images of the clinic, which I’m so proud to use. It is exactly what I had requested. Susan, at Carrigg Photography is such a pleasure to work with and I am truly happy with the results. I also really appreciate their commitment to customer service and competitive pricing. I highly recommend Carrigg for all your photography and design needs!
Not only does my company use photographers on a regular basis we also make referrals to our clients. So it's great when we get feedback and reviews from those clients. Recently we had a business we work with that needed new staff photographs for advertising. They had been putting off the task because the previous time they had done this with a different photographer, it was time consuming and stressful. With 30 high spirited employees the experience was a bit like herding cats. Susan came out the day before the shoot was scheduled and laid out the plans for which photos needed to be taken and from what locations. Because of her preparations the day of the shoot was seamless. She ran each of the employees through the headshots quickly, organized the team groups by their vehicles and other people by equipment. During the whole time she kept on track and finished as scheduled with no delays. They will be having her back in the future and now that they see how painless it came be will update their photos more often.
We recently hired Carrigg Photography & Design to take some casual photos to be used by our business. We used these photos on our website and in our informational brochures we distribute to prospective customers. We needed professional photos we could be proud of and would leave a positive impression on our customers. Susan came up with some great ideas for poses to use in the photos. The pictures are of high quality and we have received many compliments from our customers. We would recommend Carrigg Photography & Design for all your professional photography needs.
Carrigg Photography has done work for me several times. Wether it was for business card design or logo's the time they have spent was incredible. Not only was the price fair and creativity was top notch. Not only did they go the extra mile, but most places wouldn't even consider doing the art work for the intense style and design. This is why Carrigg Photography and Design are recommend by everyone they work with!!
I’ve known Susan Carrigg professionally for several months now. We belong to a business networking group together, so I see her on a weekly basis. Additionally we are currently working on a design project together for my company. After I saw her quality I asked her to help us out.
Several things impress me about Susan besides her photography. One is her positive attitude, she is always upbeat. Another trait is her punctuality; she’s never late for our meetings. She also has tremendous drive for her business, this woman and her company work very hard. She is a bundle of energy. And of course . . . the photography, which is like nothing I’ve ever seen before.
I don’t know how to else to put it other than to say her pictures look like they’re alive. When I asked her how she achieved that type of quality, she told me it was the type of camera method they use when they are doing the actual shoot, something about an image file type. Whatever it is, it’s very impressive.
Carrigg Photography excels in all types of photography, not just weddings, or children, or landscapes. These are all wonderful, but her still action photos are unbelievable. This is what caught my eye; it was the first type of work that I saw from her.
At first glance I thought it was a model posing. But as I looked closer I could tell it wasn’t a pose, it was action photography. Her subjects were frozen in time and focus and very detailed. And they’re not small prints like 8.5 x 11. It was a much larger format and she told me that they can produce extremely large format prints. Here too . . . very impressive. You have to see it for yourself, words don’t do it justice.
I recommend Carrigg Photography for all of your photography and design needs. They are a cut above any photographers I have seen.
Susan Carrigg is a tremendous graphic designer you can call on for creative, fast, technically superb ads, brochures, or a wealth of other marketing material. Susan created an ad for me that matched my brand and included wonderful gradients and design. I gave her about 10 pictures and asked her to choose the best 3, simply asking for diversity in gender and location. Having her make those image calls was a big time saver for me when I faced a tight ad deadline. What struck me about Susan was that she personified great customer service and technical skills- whether it was quickly responding to emails or handling the conversion to CMYK color space so the ad colors would be true to how they were captured. I highly recommend you contact Susan to kick start your promotional campaigns in a stress free way.
I have a small painting business and in this market, we need to really be on top of our game to keep things going during this economy. I have been using Carrigg Photography & Design as sort of my own marketing team, since I don’t have one in house. They’ve done all of my before and after photos of paint jobs, helped me build a portfolio, created excellent print materials; such as, door hangers, brochures, flyers, business cards, and also designed my entire website, photographed professional headshots and taken pictures of our crew and the crew in action. I have to give credit where credit is due, and I believe that the work that the Carrigg’s have done has been a major key to our success. We pride ourselves on being the best paint company in town, but I don’t know how to portray that to the customer. But, the Carriggs sure know what they are doing and have done so much to help me showcase our company in the best possible way. I highly recommend this company for all of your photography and graphic design projects.
I also hired this company to take some pictures of my granddaughters. They are the sweetest pictures you’ve ever seen, and I get so many compliments on them. I think my granddaughters should be models now! Susan put the pictures into a hard cover book that I have on my coffee table and it is the ultimate Grandma brag book. So, I was so delighted with the photos of my granddaughters that I hired them to photograph my daughter’s wedding. We were all blown away by the quality of work and the level of artistry that went into all the photography. I swear they made the wedding and reception look better than it really was. It was quite a challenging day, getting married outside in not so optimal weather. It was rainy off and on, things got muddy, the wind blew too much, but looking at the pictures, I can see how everyone had a fabulous time and all my hard work paid off. And, my daughter was an absolutely stunning bride and the pictures look like they are right out of a magazine. They captured pictures of the flowers and décor and all the guests. These photos will be treasured forever. If you hire Carrigg Photography & Design, make sure you have them do the invitations too. They were so creative when it came to making up the invitations and thank you notes and programs. And, it was much more affordable than I would have imagined because wedding invitations can get so expensive. I was really happy with the price of everything. I got a lot done and I know if I’d have gone anywhere else, I would have paid more than I could really afford. I’m so happy with my decision to go with the Carrigg’s. They made a special day even more special. And, the bride and groom had a blast that whole day.
