The Studio

Joe and I have been in business long enough to know how to create one of a kind, beautiful, handcrafted portraits for you and your family. We are a full service, professional portrait studio here in Murrieta, California. Our studio is used for our portrait photography only. We don't live here, but are lucky to live about three miles away so commuting is a breeze! This is our dream studio!

Why us?

When you come to Joseph Carroll Photography, we want to create something beautiful and unique that will reflect who you are. We are a full service, modern boutique studio, with not only an indoor studio, but with a full acre of outdoor studio areas to photograph. We will create a portrait that has lasting beauty, from digital size all the way up to lifesize. From start to finish, all of our work is hand crafted and meant to last. Many people think that their smartphones will be enough. We know that they won’t be! When you put your Joseph Carroll Portraits up, they will never come down!

 

We welcome you to come by and have a look around and even a cup of coffee if you like! Just make sure to check our studio hours!

We have had Fairy and Mermaid pictures done here and we love them. They turned out beautiful! They were so great with my girls (5 and 7). I loved all the shot, it was hard to pick just a few lol. They have wonderful backgrounds and costumes. I Highly recommended!
