Carl Weber was born in Philadelphia, the son of landscape painter Gottlieb Daniel Paul Weber (1823–1916). He studied at the Munich Royal Academy of Fine Art and took private lessons from two Frankfurt artists: landscape painter Jakob Becker (1810–1872) and Johann Eduard von Steinle (1810–1886). Afterwards he spent a year in Paris, and returned to Philadelphia sometime in the mid-1870s.

Weber shared a studio with his cousin, Carl Philip Weber, and exhibited intermittently at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, the Philadelphia Art Club, and the National Academy of Design. He was a member of the Philadelphia Artists' Fund Society and the American Art Association, which awarded him a Gold Medal in 1902. After 1891 Weber had a studio at 816 Chestnut Street, the same address as Earle's Gallery, where many Philadelphia artists exhibited.

Weber was a successful landscape painter noted for his views of rural Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New England, and Illinois. He died in Ambler, Pennsylvania, and was buried at Rose Hill cemetery.
