"We feel so lucky to have found Carrigg Photography & Design!  We had never had a professional family portrait done and were very excited for our session.  I called for the appointment and Susan was able to schedule our family very quickly.  She had several great location suggestions but was happy to meet us anywhere we wanted. Susan was a pleasure to work with and our session was relaxed and fun.  Most importantly, our pictures are incredible!"
– Lisa and Dave McKinney

"Susan and Steve did a fantastic job photographing my 2-year-old granddaughter.  Susan responded to my initial inquiry on the same day that I called, and suggested a location for the outdoor photo shoot that I wanted.  I was impressed by how many beautiful images - that truly captured my granddaughter's personality - they were able to take in only 30 minutes!  The session was a lot of fun for my granddaughter as well, thanks to their kindness, expertise and experience. I really appreciated Susan's suggestions for location (an outdoor park) and timing (9 in the morning, for the best lighting).  When she agreed that a 30 minute session was plenty long enough for a toddler, I KNEW that she had experience with this age group!  Susan was also flexible when it came to scheduling.  We had to change the appointment date at one point, and she was very gracious and accommodating.  We had a morning appointment and the images were available to view that evening.  Susan responded to all of my post-session questions quickly and completely.  I decided to purchase the entire set of 32 digital images from the session and received the images as soon as payment was received. I am delighted with the quality of work performed by Carrigg Photography and plan to schedule additional sessions in the future"
– Julianne Byrne

"The whole experience was very pleasant throughout. Booking went smoothly, but we were doing an outdoor shoot in October, and ended up needing to reschedule due to rain. There was no problem with the reschedule. They were there to meet us right on time, and took pictures in a number of locations at the site. Susan, the photographer, put my daughter at ease, and also graciously tolerated pose suggestions from the peanut gallery (me).  She allowed time for an outfit change. We were very happy with the resulting photos. When we asked for a little editing on one photo so it could be used for the yearbook, Susan was happy to accommodate us. She emailed the digital photo straight to the yearbook folks at the school, so there was no problem getting them exactly what they needed on time.  Even though it took me months to order my own digital photos and prints, everything was still waiting for me on her website when I was ready to place my order. Susan was very accommodating and pleasant during the whole process -scheduling, during the shoot, after when we wanted extra editing. The pictures were great.  I would definitely recommend Carrigg Photography"
– Ariel Shattan

"We asked the Carriggs to take pictures of our children for Mother's Day.  We preferred outdoor photos and the Carriggs were able to recommend a great location based on the time of day we were meeting (for optimal light).  They did a wonderful job getting my 5 year old son to pose.   They were also flexible and patient with my 18-month old daughter.  She was a little grumpy that morning, but you would not know it from the photos.  The Carriggs were also quick to capture spontaneous moments of the two kids playing - adorable.  The pictures are beautiful - a great hit not only with their Mom and Dad, but with friends and family as well.  A final bonus - we had the pictures quickly, and when promised!  A great experience."
-– A Very Happy Mom

"Carrigg Photography & Design did a fantastic job on my son's senior photos.  They were very prompt in answering all our emails and questions and made some suggestions on locations for an outdoor setting.  We chose a local park and they did a great job picking settings at the park.  The digital images ready for our review within a couple of days.  The photos were great, and they gave us lots of choices in length of photo session, number of  digital images to purchase and print sizes which we could order.  After we placed the order for prints, we had the final prints in a couple of days.  The prints are wonderful. The price was very reasonable compared to other photographers. I would highly recommend Carrigg Photography & Design."
-– Peggy  

"We were so  impressed with the senior photos of our son that were taken by Susan and Steve.  The variety of photos/poses  was really nice -a lot to choose from and our son got to choose where the photos were taken.  They also made it a fun photo shoot as we could tell by the smiles on our son's face!!  I would highly recommend them for senior photos!"
– Ann Scherner

"Steve and Susan Carrigg took our daughter's senior pictures and took some family photos as well. They are comfortable and fun to work with and put our daughter at ease. They are flexible with times and locations, and their services are very reasonable. We are very happy with our photos and would highly recommend them!"
– Elaine

"We hired Carrigg Photography and Design to shoot some photos for our daughters portfolio. I was ASTOUNDED at the job they did!!! I was so impressed I asked to see some of their other work and I couldn't believe how good they were... I saw complete photo packages from two very different weddings (they nailed the style of each) and then I saw some of their commercial work for business web sites and brochures. They were creative, artistic, imaginative, and just flat fantastic. Susan, the owner, tells me that she and Steve work well together because they each bring to the table the artistic and technical skills that the job requires. I have to say this is an understatement. I am very happy to be able to pass their name along to anyone wanting a really top-notch job."
– Trisha

"I highly recommend Carrigg Photography and Design. They are professional, knowledgeable, and strive to please. Their experience in photography speaks for itself in the excellent quality of their photos. I have had the pleasure of using their services many times, and have always been impressed at how quickly after the photos are taken, for them to be available for purchase. Their team of photo experts will work with you to get you the final finished product that you will treasure always."
– Kristi Kasparek

"They were wonderful high quality photos at an affordable price.  We were very impressed with how the photos turned out and how easy the Carriggs were to work with.  Truly fantastic people who create great pictures."
– Mary Schuh

"I have always admired the work Susan does.. never letting an opportunity to browse through her photo books or her portfolio pass by... I think her work is truly amazing! So as the holidays grew near & being a California transplant, I thought to myself... what better gift then some professional portraits of my kids and myself for the family who don't get to see us very often? So I reached out to my favorite photographer about getting the family photo shoot scheduled. Susan was so beyond flexible with her scheduling, since we do live in the NW, she was watching and waiting for the perfect day to do an outdoor shoot. When she saw the break in the weather she immediately called me, scheduled it on a weekend and got some amazing shots, I mean she made me look like a movie star! I am so impressed with the pictures and can't wait to book another session with her, she is so professional and fun to work with...she even managed to get my teenage son to crack a smile! Not only do I plan to use Susan's services again in the future but I have and will continue to recommend her to anyone looking for great pictures."
– Nicole Whaymond

"We are very happy with our daughter's senior pictures by Carrigg Photography. We've also had several family reunion photographs done by Carrigg. We love working with them and the results have been amazing! They make us look good."
– Ilene Wight

"Steve Carrigg recently took photos at our anniversary party at our home. He could not have been more pleasant or fun to work with. Some of the photos were candid shots of the guests and others were more posed. We were so delighted to see the results of the photographs taken throughout the afternoon, as they are a wonderful collection of friends and family to be cherished always. Thank you so much for making this a special day."
– Margret

"I hired Carrigg Photography and Design for both my son's high school senior portraits.  Steve and Susan were very fun to work with and great at making the boys relax and smile, when they would much rather be behind the camera taking the shots.  Steve and Susan are both professional, knowledgeable and creative.  I highly recommend the quality service and product they provide."
– Linda S. Turzillo

"We had family portraits taken by Susan and it was an absolutely remarkable experience.  Susan met us at a park on a sunny day to make the most of the beauty of Oregon.  Having family portrait photography in Beaverton proved to be the best possible scenario.   Susan has a keen eye for capturing the best of the individuals and their personalities coupled with the backdrop that makes for truly memorable family portraits that can be enjoyed for a lifetime.  This sitting also served our son for his senior portraits.  We look forward to enjoying our family portraits and calling Susan again when we have need in our business for business photography, business portraits and brochure designs."
– Mitch Stanley

"We have a large family, 10 adults and 5 busy grand children. We wanted a family portrait. Susan and Steve were awesome. Gave us 3 separate sittings, both black/white and color to choose pictures. We also ordered the prints from them and were not disappointed. Highly recommend them, excellent experience."
– Scott Sleeman

"We had a wonderful on-location photo shoot for my son's senior pictures; the Carriggs were willing to try out a location we requested that they had not worked previously and even used 2 different locations for us! (a park and the PSU campus, which gave us a really wide variety of backgrounds to choose from) Teenage boys do not get very excited about having their picture taken and I was very pleased at how they were able to get him engaged, by the time we were leaving the session he couldn't stop talking about how much more fun it had been than he had expected. The Carriggs are really great at what they do! We were hoping we could get a session soon because the deadline was only a couple months away, they responded quickly via email and established a couple of dates for us to choose from . . . .we were also hoping they would be willing to do the session at PSU campus and they were not only open to the idea but even excited at trying out a new location. We established that we needed at least a 45 minute session and made sure that we arrived early to meet them; they also arrived early which enabled us to have a productive session which never felt rushed. My biggest problem now is that we have too many photos to choose from that we like; the best kind of problem you can have!."
– Ruthann Hughes

"My daughter was gone for the entire summer, so I was in a "rush" to get her senior portraits by the high school deadline for the yearbook.  I browsed Carrigg Photography's website and liked the pictures portrayed there.  Also, I was looking for a local vendor so the location was perfect.  I called Susan and explained my situation.  She replied that we would have no issues getting a photo shoot and a picture sent to the high school before the deadline.  Susan was very willing to accommodate my daughter's very busy schedule.  We picked a day and time, after discussing my daughter's preferences for pictures (i.e. change of clothes, outside shots, pictures with her instrument).  As the date neared, Susan noticed that the weather was uncooperative so she was willing to push the date out a bit.  Susan chose a venue with which I was not too familiar.  However, the places she found to take the pictures were fabulous; I never knew that the park had so many different and beautiful places!!  Susan and her husband arrived on time (as a matter of fact, we were a bit late!!).  She chatted with my daughter and was able to get her to feel comfortable and relaxed.  My daughter hates having pictures of her taken so it was nice to see Susan get my daughter to relax and have fun.  I do think that my daughter enjoyed the photo shoot.  After the shoot, Susan had the pictures ready to preview on the website in less than two weeks!!  The more I came back to view the pictures, the harder time I had just picking one for the yearbook!!  The pictures were gorgeous!!  When we finally selected the one for the yearbook, Susan handled getting the digital image to the high school.  After we decided which digital images we wanted, I let Susan know that a check was in the mail and she opened up the website for individual orders THAT DAY!!  This was the best experience I had for a portrait session, and working with Susan was like working with your best friend.  She was always accessible; her email responses were quick - always the same day.  I highly recommend Carrigg Photography to anyone wanting beautiful portraits.  I hope Susan is still photographing when my son is graduating from high school in eight years!! Thank you, Susan!!.
– Sara Tyge

"Thank you so much for such personal and professional photos (of our family). You two are a perfect team, capturing art and precision with apparent ease! I recommend you to all."
– Dolores Niebergall




"Carrigg Photography is easily rated an A+ rating. They provided excellent customer service, and beautiful pictures.   I was not expecting the photo shoot to be so comfortable, and it was a lot of fun.  The whole experience exceeded my expectations. The pictures for my business cards turned out extremely professional, and the process was very organized.  I loved working with the Carriggs and would recommend them to anyone.."
– Joanne Ossanna, Realtor

"I have recently started a small business, and wanted an inexpensive head shot for my website. Susan fit me in the next day, at a convenient time for me; took the photos and in 20 minutes I was on my way. The photo was sent to my email ON THE SAME DAY. Susan and her husband were both warm and efficient; I was very pleased that we found them. Others we called wanted much more for this service."
– Nila Epstein, Psychologist

I needed an 8x10 portrait for business. This was a great experience.  Susan and Steve are experienced professionals and extremely nice people on top of that.  They were able to fit the shoot into my schedule on short notice.  They worked together very well and made the shoot fun.  Susan gave me directions while Steve took the pictures. At first I resisted when she said, "smile more," but when I saw the pictures, she was right every time.  The pictures that everyone (including me) liked best were the ones in which she had the most input.  I got the digital images within 2 days and the 8x10 print within a few days after I selected it.  The cost was less than I had expected.  I chose them because of the great reviews on Angie's List and certainly made the right choice.  I highly recommend them.  Thanks Susan and Steve."
– Greg Silver

Susan took many shots and allowed me to bring in my own "prop" for a series.  Very professional head shots and half-body shots that I use on my website and in my business literature.  She presented me with a variety of shots from which to choose and had my chosen photo files to me within one day.  Superior service and quality.It was a great photo session - I was nervous! Hadn't had "professional" photos since high school - but, Susan put me right at ease and made it a fun experience."
– Marti Bowen, Realtor

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."
– Ty Kraft, Kraft Screen

I had called Susan with a very unusual request of taking headshot photos of 9 people for our website where none of us could go for the session at the same time or the same day. She was very accommodating and allowed us to make individual appointments with her at no extra charge. She kept track of how many people had showed up and kept me constantly updated on how many people showed up and what day so I could send reminders to others. She did an excellent job of retouching and finishing the photos and we are very please with her on-time delivery despite our intermittently scheduled sessions with her. I would definitely recommend her to all my friends."
– Jackie Garg, Virtual Information Executives

"I recently had a professional portrait done by Carrigg Photography & Design.  I felt very relaxed even in the midst of Susan taking great care in getting everything (the lighting, etc)  "just right" - to her it was more than just a head shot .  I would not hesitate to recommend Susan and look forward to the next opportunity to hire her."
– Conni Haffey, Certified Bookkeeper

"Susan Carrigg took my professional photos to be used on my brochures, website, business cards, etc., and she did a fantastic job!  I am not a person who loves being photographed and Susan put me at ease and made the whole experience very enjoyable! I put the pictures out on the web and have received nothing but compliments ever since!"
– Dorothy Schock, Fascial Aesthetician

"Susan is passionate about her photography. When I told Susan I needed a new business profile photograph for my different media venues, she went right into action. I have had problems in the past liking the results of my picture being taken, but Susan really worked with me, and it came out beautiful. It was a pleasure working with her and I would highly recommend her to anyone who is wanting to have their picture taken."
– Marla McNichols, Premier Designs Jewelry

"I'm thrilled with the art portfolio Carrigg Photography & Design created for my original ceramics work.  My requirements were quite specific.  Steve and Susan listened carefully and carried out my every last wish and then some!  Their strong technical skills and competent use of appropriate equipment put me at ease immediately.  My excitement and confidence grew when I experienced their innovative and varied approaches to composition, light/shadow, angle, and backgrounds.  The Carriggs illuminated my artwork's best features.  Susan and Steve's commitment to excellence, eye for detail and amazingly smooth teamwork skills showcase their passion for photography.   I left this experience with an elevated sense of esteem as an artist and a top-notch set of photographs I love.  Carrigg Photography & Design overshot my expectations by miles!"
– Carol

"Susan and Steve Carrigg did a great job with my business photos for a very reasonable fee.  I will use at least two of the photos on my professional webpage.  The Carriggs are very personable and they are obviously experienced and professional.  The "turn around" time for them to finish the photos was only two days.  I have had to wait up to two weeks for other photographers.  I would highly recommend them."
– Damon Petticord, Attorney at Law

"I am so impressed with Susan's work! She was flexible about scheduling at a time that was convenient for me, and about offering a variety of indoor and outdoor settings. In addition to her exceptional photographic artistry, she is also very adept with Photoshop and other design tools. She was able to retouch my portraits in such a way that no one could tell they had been retouched... the results were fabulous! I wholeheartedly recommend Susan for any of your photographic and graphic design needs!"
– Delila Ollson, Wize Communications

"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!"
– Dr. Natasha Kassam, 8 Hearts Wellness

"I have a painting business and I hired Carrigg Photography & Design to take photos of my work and help me with my branding. I constantly receive positive comments from prospective clients on my portfolio and print material and its set me apart from the competition. My business has more than quadrupled in the past two years, and I have to attribute that in part to my image that Susan and Steve have helped me create. I give Carrigg Photography and Design my highest recommendation, and encourage all business owners to look at their work."
– Nancy Long, Sisu Painting, Inc.

"We were in a rush to have new product photos taken. Susan was prompt, professional, and got right back to us to schedule the shoot.  She and her husband Steve did an absolutely fantastic job with the photos… with amazing speed and the work was done flawlessly."
– Jeff Evans, Kitchen Compost Caddy.

"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."
– Betty Benson, Rubbish Works of Portland

"I had Susan take photos to be used on my website and for publicity purposes.  She took body shots and head shots in her studio, making suggestions of backgrounds and poses along the way.  She also suggested and applied a special effect to the bodyshot, and touched up and adjusted the color on both the body shots and headshots I selected. I arrived a bit late because I got lost thanks to a mapping program that sent me in the wrong direction.  Susan was very understanding, and after discussing what I wanted in detail, we took a look at the outfits I brought, chose one, and got to work.  I am no model, but Susan made me feel very comfortable while she took the pictures, and gave me a lot of direction about how to pose, in particular for the bodyshot, which had to be just right since it was a picture of my entire body.  She worked quickly but efficiently, and I was only there about an hour.  I got the proofs online a few days later, went back and forth with her on color adjustment, touch-up, etc, and then she had the disk ready for me about a week after the session.  I must add, I had had someone else do similar shots last spring, and they were not good--bad angles, bad poses, bad clothing suggestions.  So I was leery of having more shots taken.  But everything went great, and I was very happy with the outcome of the photos, which turned out exactly as I wanted and have now been posted on my website."
– Melissa Manley, Author




"I needed some marketing paraphernalia for my new business fairly quickly, and Susan was on it!  She was very responsive, emailing me for feedback frequently even in the evenings and weekends.  She finished the logo, business cards, ad, and brochures within a few weeks and the final product looked great.   Would definitely recommend her to others!"
– Sarah Naidoo, DVM, Mobile Veterinary Services

"By lucky accident I found Susan, of Carrigg Photography & Design when I'd seen a website, business card and brochure collection, she designed for another business. I wanted a great design and company logo that was impressive enough to imprint, distribute and enjoy. I'm in the promotional products business and for years have not practiced what I preach (based on lack of logo design). If you want to maintain company awareness and obtain new relationships, you must promote your business, project or event. My philosophy to stretch a budget - provide a useful item, containing an interesting design, that anyone will want to use again and again. I met with Susan, discussed the nature of my business, desired colors, design elements and she was off and running. I was flabbergasted that within 24 hours I saw my logo take shape. I don't know how she did it, but she nailed it on the very first run. She was so intuitive, knowing what I wanted when I didn't have a clue. I highly recommend Susan for your design needs as she is professional, efficient and reasonable. I will definitely work with her again and highly recommend her work."
– Chris Souder, CS Promotional Products

"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."
– Jeff Evans, Kitchen Compost Caddy

"Fantastic! I don't have the time to write how pleased I am with the design, how easy it all went, and how glad I am that Susan asked me, "I have an idea, would you like me to continue working on it?" She aproached me with idea of taking our initial logo and expanding/adding/integrating to come up with a most fantastic design! I am consistently told what a great looking cart I have."
– Matt Fendall, Jaffles and Wraps

"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!"
– Sarah Mendoza

"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!!"
– Scott Gallagher, Gallagher Auto Spa

"I had Carrigg Photography & Design create a postcard image for my skin care business. The work was stunning and all of my clients who received the postcard had nothing but positive things to say about it. The work was professional, her response was timely and her design was unique. If you are looking for photography and design, do not hesitate to contact Susan."
– Jane Crawford, Lavender Stone Massage

"Susan has talent! I wanted to change my logo to represent me and my interior design business. My first logo was simple and a quick design, I designed. It was time to step up my logo and branding, I hired Susan to work on my new image.  She did an awesome job that I completely fell in love with! She captured me and my creativity with a flair of elegance. She has a natural talent for graphic design. She is currently working on my brochures!"
– Karen Linder, Karen Linder Interior Designs

"Recently I had the pleasure of working with Susan of Carrigg Photography and Design. After agreeing to be a participant in an event that would showcase my business, I knew I needed a professional marketing piece to convey the culture of my business and keep the branding as well as advertising the promotion I would be running throughout the event. Susan was the first and only person who came to mind! After asking questions to make sure she understood my vision and end goals she deftly put together a flyer that was professional, clean and conveyed my message superbly.  Thanks to Susan, I received so many calls afterward that my new clients are scheduled out for 3 weeks!"
– Lori Rush, Career Counselor

"I've worked with Susan on some graphic design projects and I'm totally impressed.  She has a great design sense, AND she combines that with technical skill and knowledge. The quality of her work is amazing and she's a pleasure to work with. I'd recommend her without hesitation to anyone looking for graphic design or photographic work."
– Mike Lottridge, Speedpro Imaging of West Portland

"I hired Susan and Carrigg Photography & Design to design and implement a new website for my company, Ad Specialties of Oregon NW, Inc. after seeing other websites she had designed. Susan was able to not only create a very competitively priced website, but also implement interactive product photography into the layout. Our business has had increased web traffic to the new website and our customers have really liked the new, modern look. I highly recommend Carrigg Photography & Design."
– Daniel Kirkham, Ad Specialties of Oregon NW

"Carrigg Photography and Design has handled our graphic design and photography needs for the past several years and has always produced excellent material. Susan is creative, highly organized, responsive to our needs, and Steve's photos are beautiful and high-quality. These, coupled with Susan's design skills, always yield fabulous publicity materials for our dance company."
– Kristin Hill, Northwest Dance Theatre Publicity Chair

"I recently used Susan for assistance with my personal website. She was prompt, creative and very reasonably priced. She has an amazing concern for detail and does great work. I recommend her highly."
– Tim McBratney, Senior Loan Officer

"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."
– Paul Sivley, Photographer

"The Carriggs were professional, organized and very attentive to my individual needs and budget. Their timely work and design ideas were a great help in establishing a business identity for Mountain Painting. I would highly recommend them to anyone!"
– Dave Mountain, Mountain Painting Company

"We've worked with Susan Carrigg several times on various graphic design and photography projects, and we've always been exceptionally impressed with the quality of her work and attention to detail.  Susan will spend as much time as is necessary to get everything EXACTLY perfect and press ready.  We LOVE her and highly recommend her to anyone looking to have their special moment preserved forever.  Weddings, senior portraits, family and baby photos are her specialty, though she is equally well versed in creating compelling logos and design layouts. She is very accommodating and is extremely pleasant to work with.  We highly recommend Carrigg Photography and Design!"
– Carolyn Miye, Speedro Imaging of West Portland

"Recently I decided it was time for an update to my business image. A friend introduced me to Susan Carrigg and am I happy I made that introduction. I wasn't quite sure what I wanted. I liked parts of my old design but not all of it. I am sure she thought I was indecisive or confused or who knows what when we first met but Susan made me feel at ease. She asked great questions and then went to work giving me visual options to choose from. She showed me how they would look on my website, my letterhead and even my business card. With each option she would ask what I liked and didn't like ultimately helping me to create just the right look. Susan also has great printer resources that will save money and time. I love that she can also help me with the right photographic support for my work."
– Sherry Jordan, Business Coach
