what my clients say:
"Jim's medium is not only light and the elements that make a stunning photograph, but his humor -- a relaxed photo shoot always produces the best portraits, and he works with you to bring out your authentic self so that you wind up feeling and looking your best. His work is an artful blend of professionalism and playfulness, and the result is always marvelous. I recommend him wholeheartedly."
Hannah - Langley, WA
"I've always been a bit camera shy, but Jim put me at ease right away and had me feeling like a movie star in no time! He is so open to suggestions and experimentation, shooting with him feels like a collaboration. You can tell he is really excited by his work, and that passion shows in the photographs."
Sophia - Clinton, WA
"As an actress, I'm constantly in need of high-quality head shots. Jim Carroll is my first choice of photographer whenever I need to update my look. His warm and professional demeanor is conducive to a fun and productive shoot. I highly recommend him!"
Katie - Bayview, WA
"Our family had the pleasure of working with Jim Carroll when our daughter and son in law decided to get married on Whidbey Island with just one week’s notice. The wedding planner at the Inn at Langley recommended him, as she was familiar with his work. If we had interviewed photographers for a year, we could not have been happier with Jim’s memorialization of the wedding. With just hours’ notice, Jim showed up with all his equipment and started unobtrusively taking photos, occasionally suggesting a posed shot. He was a joy to have as a part of our wedding party and made the process painless and fun. When we all left for home, Jim went to work. He put together the most wonderful wedding book we have ever seen and which we will cherish for generations to come. We would not hesitate to recommend Jim as a photographer and artist!"
Kim - Tamuning, Guam
"Jim was very creative on the spot and helped us think of meaningful and attractive poses. We were nervous, but Jim was very reassuring and put us both at ease! He has a great energy that spills into his photos and his interactions. Working with Jim is a pleasure and we can't wait to work more with him!"
