About this pro

How does your business stand out?

For 2017, Thumbtack awarded me the TOP PRO classification. Less than 3% of all Thumbtack Pro's qualify for this classification. In the past, Thumbtack awarded me the honor of being the #1 Creative Photographer in San Antonio" in both 2015 and 2016 and also “Top Pro” in the Austin area based on the client reviews I have received. I use top of the line Nikon digital SLR camera's and I love to take lots of pictures. My clients will receive all of their edited images on a flash drive in high resolution with a copyright release as part of the base price of the photoshoot. For indoor photoshoots I always shoot the images to a laptop for easy viewing on a large monitor as the pictures are being taken. This allows for any adjustments or changes while the shoot is taking place rather than after the shoot and its too late. I am a 2004 graduate of the New York Institute of Photography. I'm very experienced and all of my clients will attest to the fact that I am very laid back and easy to work with, making them feel comfortable and putting them at ease. Take a minute to read the reviews and references on my profile for assurances of my photography skill, knowledge and professionalism.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I enjoy meeting and interacting with new people and bringing out their best in the photo's that I take. The ultimate compliment following a photoshoot is when the client tells me how much fun they had during the shoot. I am very good at making people who don't like having their picture taken feel at ease.

    We felt so at ease knowing that Doug was there to capture all the special moments of our day. From first contact during the hiring process to the end of our wedding reception he made sure that all our questions were answered. Doug never stopped working throughout our big day and we couldn't be more grateful knowing that he was there to capture all the images we will cherish for years to come.

    Doug was great to work with! He did business headshots for my husband and it was a great experience! He was very easy to communicate with through thumbtack and had availability to meet our needs. Once at his studio, the process went very smoothly and quicker than I could imagine! My husband and I actually enjoyed the photoshoot session and the end result was beyond what we expected! I would highly recommend Doug Carter!

  • Erin P. Jun 15, 2017
    I'd never had headshots done and was a little nervous--I'm not very photogenic. Doug is excellent at making his subject feel comfortable. He laughed with me as I awkwardly adjusted to being a "model" and knew just how to help break the ice. Once I had a better understanding of what I was doing everything was easy. Doug is great at catching subtle movements and changes so that you have a ton of options to work with in picking the best shots. I had dozens of each outfit/pose to go through to find the best. I know that these photos will stand out on my business cards. Thanks Doug!

    My 12 year old was in need of updated headshots. After shopping around I chose Doug Carter Images because of pricing, packages and number of edited images. Doug is very personable and professional. He interacted with my daughter and may her feel comfortable from the very first snap of his camera. He also let her view all the pictures as he took them. Doug took time to suggest wardrobe and poses. He also suggested ideas for future photoshoots. At the end of the shoot, were given a flash drive containing all the photos. We will be reviewing a select number of edited photos within a week. We enjoyed Doug and will be coming back soon for a complete portfolio package. Thank you Doug Carter! Highly recommend!
  • George D. Jun 6, 2017
    I booked an appointment with Doug and it couldn't have gone better. He met me at the door so I didn't have to go looking for his suite. He quoted me a price for 5-7 pictures, but I liked so many of them that he was nice enough to go above and beyond by giving me 10. I know this took extra time, but he didn't charge me any extra. That's what I call excellent service. Thank you Doug for taking care of me, I truly appreciate it.

    Doug was great. Very friendly and professional. Our clients can be really demanding at times, coming up with last minute requests we didn't see coming. Doug handled those requests without a second thought, and with a smile. The quality of the photos Doug provided us are second to none. They will be a great addition to our social media accounts and offline marketing materials. I can't recommend Doug Carter Images enough, and if our clients return to San Antonio for a future event I will contact him without hesitation.

    An Amazing Photographer
    Doug Carter just took my daughter's senior portraits and I am blown away by his amazing talent. Doug is an outstanding photographer, very professional, and has a very outgoing personality. His ideas are endless and knows exactly how to capture the true personality of the person he is photographing. I have another photo session booked with Doug for family portraits in June and I will be looking forward to another positive experience. I highly recommend Doug for any of your photography needs as I think you will be completely satisfied by his professionalism and true work of art.

    Highly recommend Doug for professional headshots
    My experience with Doug was wonderful from start to finish - a process that took less than 2 weeks! I submitted a request for proposals to do professional headshots, and he replied within an hour with a competitive quote and great samples of his work for me to view. We scheduled a photo shoot at his studio for later that week - everything was easy and efficient. The shoot lasted less than an hour and he had produced over 160 pictures with multiple poses in two outfits. He even offered to do more if I wanted! I received a thumb drive with the raw images and got to select 3-5 images that Doug touched up within 2-3 days. I now have a beautiful set of headshots to share on networking sites. I can't recommend Doug highly enough - he is a true pro (and a nice guy too!!)

    My shoot with Doug was actually my first ever photoshoot. Obviously, I was a bit nervous, especially since it was a boudoir photo shoot. But once Doug greeted me, I knew I'd have a great experience. He was so easy going and full of ideas! I didn't realize how fast time flew by until the shoot was actually over! I felt so comfortable working with him, and the price was right within my budget. I couldn't have made a better choice for a boudoir shoot. Thank you, Doug!

    Comfortable engagement session
    We had our engagement session, of course were a little nervous because we had never done professional pictures. Doug emailed throughout the process with suggestions and tips of what not/to wear. The session was so relaxed, we never felt too posed or fake. Choosing our favorites was a difficult task because they were all so great!

    An excellent choice for wedding photographer
    Doug was unobtrusive but omnipresent. He got a great mix of solemn, necessary and fun shots -- he delivered more than a thousand edited photos that encompassed all the most important aspects of the ceremony and reception. Nothing was left out. We had limited time after the ceremony to take pictures in the church, but he managed to get all the necessary ones with various groups and branches of the family. The technical aspects of photos, such as lighting and focus, were excellent. He has a great personality, got along well with the guests, and was altogether both professional and reasonably priced.

    Wonderful experience with Doug
    I chose Doug among 5 bidders, at the beginning mainly because I liked his profile, especially when he mentioned that he would take 100+ pictures in order to choose the perfect one and also he would take a laptop with him to see the results right on the spot. All these were proven to be true after he took pictures for my 15-people firm. Doug took the time to visit us at our location ahead of photo shooting to get familiar with the inside and outside environment. Doug was highly professional by making the plan before the photo shooting day, communicating and coordinating with staff, arriving earlier to set up the site, being flexible with personalities and preferences, going extra miles by taking pictures from every distance and angle to maximize the results. Because of the wonderful experience that we have had with Doug, we are considering to make a photo shooting an annual event to bring up our firm spirit. Pictures turned out to be great and we are planning on sending to our clients and family members after editing. I would highly recommend Doug to anyone who has the need for photo shooting. Another point worth mentioning is Doug's price is very reasonable. You can't go wrong with Doug.

    I'm not that good at writing reviews so hopefully I will do this justice. Doug was amazing during our shoot together. He spent a great deal of time with me taking photos of various poses and outfits. By the time we were done we have over 1300 photos! I was able to keep all of them too because Doug gave them to me on a USB, I don't know of anyone else that allows you to keep all the photos. He and his girlfriend helped me to feel comfortable and were welcoming. I will certainly be going back for another shoot with him in future!

    I chose Doug to take some headshot of me based on his outstanding rating and reviews. I'm not photogenic and not comfortable having my picture taken, but somehow he put me at ease from the very beginning. I never imagined it would "be fun" for me as some reviewers stated, but it was! Also I had so many good pics to choose from, it was very hard to decide.

    Jessica did this review prior to the photoshoot. Afterwards she tried to write a "post shoot" review but it wouldn't let her since she had already done one. She wrote me this and asked me to post it on Thumbtack somehow. This is what she wrote: Title: Hire this photographer! Professional and dedicated. Wouldn't stop photographing until he captured the perfect shot. Quick turn-around time for digital images. Walked out of the studio with originals in hand on a thumb drive. After selecting the photos I wanted touched up, he had them back to me within a week. I was interested in doing my first boudoir session, and I felt completely comfortable. I brought a friend along to the shoot, and Doug had a female assistant present at all times. I appreciated the wine he offered while I was having my make-up and hair done at his studio. On that note, I would also recommend Doug's contact for hair/make-up, Chelsea (he can give you her contact info). I appreciated that he kept the themes/poses to the ones I had suggested during the booking phase, but also made some other great artistic suggestions. I honestly enjoyed the overall experience from start (booking) to finish (printing). Thank you for making me look and feel so beautiful, Doug!

    We were so lucky to find Doug Carter to be our wedding photographer! We looked for a while and most photographers charge so much for their packages. But then we came across Doug and we are so grateful! His fees are very reasonable and he is definitely very experienced. Doug arrived early to our venue, he stayed for the entire ceremony/party (no extra fees for staying over 6 hours), he was very friendly and easy to work with. A couple of weeks after the wedding we received 2 CDs with about 700 pictures. He captured every single detail! We did not have a videographer, and to be honest we did not need it. We can play a slide show of all the pictures and it's like having a movie! The pictures are great, it will be really difficult to choose the ones we want to print. So many details and emotions were captured through out. Thank you Doug!!!

    Scheduling was easy, but follow up was not. I got ripped off. While I did get an appropriate number of photos, when I followed the instructions to send back images for touch up, I never received them. My money was essentially stolen. I now have raw images but not the head shots I purchased. I called twice and emailed and never received a response. Don't hire this guy. I paid $150 for polished headshot photos and did not get them.
    Doug C. Feb 15, 2016

    Okay, something is obviously very wrong here. After her photoshoot I never heard back from her. We did an hour and a half photoshoot and she received over 200 very good, high quality professional photo's with a copyright release. It is not unusual for me not to hear back from people who don't want their "3" top images photoshopped. Some people don't want that photoshopped look. I took a screen shot of our Thumbtack messages showing there was no correspondence after the date of her shoot, but there is no way to attach it to this message. Thumbtack can verify this. The fact remains why wait 5 months for your pictures and then write a mean review? I always get the touched up images back within a week of the shoot. There is no record of her trying to contact me. If she called why not leave a message? My record speaks for itself. All you have to do is look at all the other reviews. I will contact her to make everything right because all of my work is 100% satisfaction guaranteed.

Communication was outstanding from the first Thumbtack email, until the completion of the photoshoot. I chose Doug's services based on his experience and knowledge regarding taking actor head shots. His price was fair and reasonable and within my bidget. We will not hesitate to use Doug's services again.

    We hired Doug for headshots of our Executive Management Team. I found his price very reasonable. He arrived for the shoot timely and was great at putting people at ease during the shoot. He was very easy to work with and delivered a professional product. I would definitely call on him again for all professional photography. Thanks Doug!

    Went in for Actor Head shots not to long ago. The price was amazing first off. Second, we spoke over the phone first before booking and it felt right. The session itself was amazing and went very smooth. I was ecstatic about the results and will recommend him and will reuse him over if I ever need too.

    Doug has been wonderful! He not only did our engagement pictures but he did our wedding photo for this past Sunday. The engagement pictures came out wonderful. Lots of family and friends have complimented the photos and loved them. We haven't received our wedding photos just yet (Like I said it was on Sunday), BUT I know Doug has done an awesome job. He showed up early, gave us direction on how to pose and ensured that we were running on time. He is awesome!

    Our experience with Doug Carter of Creative Images By Doug Carter was a mixed bag. It is best to start with a narrative of events. First he conducted a photo shoot for our company. The problem started when two of our employees were unable to make it to the shoot until towards the end of the session due to urgent work commitments and further travel arrangements. We were unhappy with the results of this photography session, but understand that he felt rushed with the last two people. He agreed to reshoot the pictures. We missed a further make up session again due to the urgent nature of our work. Unfortunately, despite our apologies and willingness to accommodate any solution that would be in both of our interests, the Mr. Carter chose to sever any commitment to us and not to complete the agreed upon services. I am disappointed with his stubbornness and unwillingness to provide positive customer service by going above and beyond to please his customers despite our challenges. Unfortunately Mr. Carter values his time over yours and has shown that he is unwilling to be flexible in meeting the needs of his customers, furthermore he is not hesitant in being unpleasant in venting his frustration to you.

    $450 for 150 pictures and only 39 of them were decent. I think a photographer that works with models should provide a little direction in order to get the best photos. Many photos were at bad angles resulting in unusable photos. He was professional and on time.

    A NOON, OUTDOOR WEDDING IN AUGUST! What were they thinking? The angles she mentions is because in her group family pictures everyone wanted to stand in the shade rather than the gorgeous background overlooking the hill country. Everyone had sweat running down their faces and sweaty wet spots on all of their clothing.

    Though I may have been late to the game, I've come to realize how important professional photographs are for my online presence. I did my research and chose Doug Carter and I'm glad I did. Doug was free-spirited, professional, and he took a lot of pictures at an excellent price point. He produced some great shots while making the photo shoot a light and fun affair. I recommend his work and look forward to working with him in the future. Doug did great work at a great price.

    What a wonderful experience! Doug was friendly, professional and efficient. He had everything set up and ready to go when I arrived. He explained that he would take several shots and we would be reviewing them along the way. That helped so much! I was able to see the pictures from his perspective so I could fix my hair, improve my smile, etc. Doug was able to schedule my session the day after I contacted him and his professionalism certainly won me over. I'm not sure when I'll need his services again but when I do, I know he will do a great job. It is without hesitation that I recommend Doug Carter to my friends, family and perfect strangers!

    Doug did an amazing job with my daughter's Senior pictures! First, Doug was wonderful to work with. He always promptly responded to all of my questions and kept me up to date throughout the planning process. Second, he was very personable and made my daughter feel so comfortable during the photo shoot-- she had never had professional portraits made and he completely put her at ease! Third, he chose a beautiful location and knew the perfect time of day to capture the best light. Last, but certainly not least, the pictures are amazing-- we could not be happier with them!! They were so natural, beautiful, and truly flattering to her. Very reasonably priced too! Very pleased!!

    Doug Carter did a great job with my daughter's head shots. He took about 350 pictures and provided them on a disk at the end of the shoot and a document giving us the rights to the photos. He had an assistant there to see the photos as the shoot was going to suggest pose changes or to fix stray hairs or other imperfections. Then he edited about 10 of the photos that we picked as our favorites. It was very difficult to narrow it down to 10 because they were all so good! I will use him again as it warms up for an outside shoot.

    March 15, 2015 Hiring Doug Carter to be our wedding photographer for my son’s wedding was one of the best things I did. My son had asked me to be the wedding planner for his wedding. It wasn’t easy as the bride lived in Russia and the groom in Hawaii. But, from the first time I talked to Doug, he reassured me that it would turn out fine. He is truly a professional. He was everywhere at the same time yet totally nonintrusive. He and the videographer we hired worked out a system together and everything went smoothly. When the bride arrived two weeks before the wedding, we were able to set up a meeting in person with him. He was so organized, asked us the questions he needed and gave us ideas as to some pictures we hadn’t thought of. The bride was as impressed as I was. He has had 20 years of experience in professional photography and it shows. He is one of those rare people who is totally focused on doing a great job for the customer. I was so impressed. He knew exactly what we needed and was right there to get the shots. He loves to take candid shots also and from his website they are wonderful. He actually came really early to the wedding site to set up then worked non-stop until the end of the evening. He squeezed in pictures of all my family and friends as well as doing shots of the bride and groom at different sights after the wedding and before the reception. If you are interested in a really excellent photographer who really “cares”, Doug is the person I would recommend you hire. I am sure you would be as pleased as I was. Gratefully, Sherry Whitmer-Hall

    Doug took professional headshots of me in his downtown studio. He shot 190 shots and made me feel very comfortable. He got two really good shots. The others all looked very unnatural, as he had me tilt my head too far. It would have been helpful if Doug had communicated in advance what colors, attire I should have with me. Overall, it was a good experience, however, and Doug did a fabulous job of photoshopping the selected photos!

Very Impressed with his easygoing attitude made us feel at ease and captured the best looks for a actors profile. His rates are very affordable and the results are extremely good.

I contacted him to get my boudoir shot around Monday I believe and we did it on Wednesday. During the shoot he was very kind and his girlfriend was awesome even helping and giving ideas. He let us know about where we could get professional prints and a little black book. I recommend him to anyone looking to get photography done. His eye for seeing whats right and wrong is excellent.
