Memories to Last
Carl was exceptional to work with. He takes generous time to meet with the client to understand what you're looking for, your style, your day, etc. by asking detailed questions. He provides expert feedback including how to schedule your day-of timeline. It seems every photographer can shoot an outdoor winery wedding well, but indoor low-light shots are a challenge. We searched high and low for a photographer who could photograph well indoors and in low lighting, and finally found Carl through Instagram. His photography colors, lighting, shadows, etc. were all exactly what we were looking for. Away we went!Sent on 12/28/2018
Carl (and Charles) were so patient to work with day-of. They captured all the important moments, and expertly shifted us around to get excellent group and family shots. What you get with Carl Elixir are not just photos - they're memories. Our emotions were captured perfectly and we can still feel them through our photos. The light touch-ups on our photos were expertly done and provided the touch needed for the type of photos we were seeking for our wedding style. Thank you for the memories for many many years to come!

The best photographer in DC!
Carl and his team are super professional and creative. Definitely the best photographer in DC! The whole booking process and after-shooting service went highly efficient and smooth, which are beyond our expectation. Also, Carl is very easy to get along with. His assistant, Charles, is very professional and friendly as well. We are very pleased with the whole experience and we would definitely recommend Carl to any of our friends who are getting married.Sent on 07/05/2019

The compliments keep pouring in the pictures and if you’ve seen them, you'd understand why. We been working together for many events / special days and worked great as a team to make sure the wedding looked the best in every way. Carl was able to capture creative and innovative images that flattered all of the guests. The pictures have received tons of compliments and continue to help other vendors' portfolio as well. This is a young man who has natural talent and will go very far. All in all I'm extremely pleased with the results and would definitely work with him again and I HIGHLY recommend Carl to anyone who needs a good photographer.
I had the opportunity to do the makeup for an engagement shoot and wedding that Carl photographed. The photos are drop dead gorgeous! He has an amazing eye for beauty and art. There seems to be a whimsical element in his photos. In addition to the amazing quality of his work, he is extremely professional. He showed up to the preparation venue earlier than scheduled and immediately began taking shots. There was no hesitation, indicating his great level of experience.
I am happy to recommend my couples to Carl Elixir Photography. Carl takes gorgeous, flawless photos. He is extremely professional, easy to work with, knowledgeable, and flexible to your needs. Carl Elixir Photography delivers stunning photos for your memorable day!
