the studio

Carlson Photography is located in Appleton, Wisconsin; not far from the Appleton International Airport. We have grown our business through the years with our client's needs in mind. We want our clients to enjoy a memorable experience that is easy and fun. That is why we built our studio location with 5,600 sq ft of space … 2,500 sq ft is dedicated to our camera rooms with more than 30 unique photographic sets. The remainder of the space is designed with spacious dressing rooms and comfortable galleries for you to relax in while visiting our studio for your appointments.

Just outside our back door, we have 2.5 acres of land that has been purposefully designed and landscaped for outdoor location photography. It is complete with urban and industrial settings, woodsy and natural nooks, fields of flowers and grasses, a creek, a vintage truck and many more possibilities to give you the most variety in your portraits. You have unlimited choices for both studio and location photography all in one location!

With more than 20 years of experience in professional photography, we have seen a lot of things change in portraiture. We are always learning and updating our photography skills to stay current with the trends, but we also have the foundational skills and expertise in lighting and posing that ensure you will look your best in the portraits we create for you. But with all the changes we have made, one thing still remains the same --  our commitment to excellence and to serving our clients well. We value each and every one of our clients!

We would be honored to be your photographer.  Give us a call so we can chat about your portraits!
