Patrick receives an 5 star rating from me for exceeding all of my expectations in the areas of customer service, quality of work offered, price, timeliness, and most importantly the finished product. Let me preface my review by stating that I have had extensive prior experience working with photographers in Portland over the years including my year as Mrs. Oregon. When I went to choose a photographer for my fifteen year old daughter's headshot, I had several top photographers in mind. After reviewing his work on his site and finding it to be comparable to the best photographers in PDX, I selected Patrick over the others who were more well known to me due in great part to his flexibility, responsiveness, and customer service skills. (sadly these skills are rarely seen among top notch photographers.) I took a risk with someone I wasn't as familiar with and was pleasantly surprised to have all my expectations exceeded. Let me explain. Personality/Skill....My daughter had no prior experience with posing other than school photos. Additionally, she was apprehensive about going into a studio to take her head shots. Patrick put her at ease, was able to coach her through the basics of posing, and even brought in his makeup artist to give her some tips. To see the quality of her posing improve so much so very quickly over the course of the single session was nothing short of amazing. Makeup/Hair..One thing I was looking for in a photographer was a skilled makeup/hair artist. Not really knowing what to expect, I hoped for the best. It isn't uncommon to get a cookie cutter makeup look for all clients from a makeup artist. I was extremely impressed with Ashley. To begin with she cared enough about her work to ask for photos in advance of my daughter as well as the look she was going for. The final result was nothing short of amazing. She was able to achieve two distinct looks that we provided with precision. She is a perfectionist. It is her personality, however, that was perfect for our needs. She is a young woman who relates to teens extremely well. She brought my daughter out of her shell and put her at ease. I highly recommend paying extra to use her to do your makeup. It was money well spent as she created the foundation of the look that Patrick was able to capture very artistically. Price/Value..The photos are stunning. I didn't want a senior portrait photo being marketed as a headshot. Patrick really knows the local industry and what they are looking for in the various niche markets. We have a great assortment of photos reasonably priced. In my opinion, a photographer who is very skilled will charge a reasonable photo session fee and then charge for each photo selected individually. Don't get sucked into packages as you may end up with only one or two good shots while paying for many mediocre ones. Patrick is confident enough that he will get enough great must have shots that you will love that he will end up making the same or more money from me than a photographer who mandates a package. He doesn't need to force clients into packages. I literally love dozens of the final photos. When all is said and done, I will have paid less than I would have for a package with no assurance of quality. Customer Service..In the end the customer service is the most important part. Patrick was responsive to my initial inquiry and all follow up questions. The proofs were done remarkably fast. I will be scheduling a follow up session to pay for my final selections. He so cared about my daughter's experience, however, that he let her have a few of her favorite shots right away. That is something you would never see from a large photo studio. In short, you can't go wrong with Patrick.
It was great working with the photographers. We were just supposed to have one photographer, but we ended up with two, so more photos! It was an outdoor wedding and the weather didn't fully cooperate; the photographers did a good job working with the elements and caught some nice moments.
Taylor Creery photographers are amazing and so much fun to work with. They made my wedding day go very smoothly. I would recommend them to anyone.
Kelly Mooney is absolutely the best photographer our family of 6 has ever used! She is creative, and truly captures the essence of the people she is taking photos of. She has taken 2 of our children's senior photos, family photos and birthday party photos. She has a natural ability to bring out the best in those she is photographing.
Jarrad is an amazing photographer. He was patient, he was kind, and he took amazing photos! We have a family of 4 and he took photos of us at a park and at our home. We found him on Thumbtack last minute because our original photographer had an emergency and we were not going to cancel the shoot (it took far too much work getting the kids prepared to take photos). I submitted my Thumbtack request at 6:30 on Saturday morning and by 8:00 am we had 12 Thumbtack responses. I am so thankful that we booked with Jerrad. And I am so thankful that Thumbtack exists. Who knew such an amazing site with such amazing talent existed!! If he'll have us, we'll use Jerrad again!
Great experience! She was so nice and fun to be with! Also an amazing photographer! I'm so glad I chose her as my senior picture photographer! & im looking forward to keep getting pictures taken from her :)
Meghan is an amazing photographer. The photos she takes of my fused glass art pieces leave me amazed! She is very pleasant and has a wonderful disposition.
Katharine Kimball is amazing. Katharine was my wedding photographer. She was incredible to work with. She was very responsive in returning emails and messages. The day of my wedding she was on point and a pleasure to deal with. Katharine was very quick in her turn around time on posting snapshots from the wedding on facebook and I received my disc of pictures very quickly thereafter. I highly recommend Katharine Kimball Photography for any of your photography needs. Outside of being a dream to work with, Katharine is out of this world talented and has a natural artistic view that make her pictures magical.
We have hired Chris on 4 different occasions to take photographs of rental properties that we were selling. The photos were used for our promotional sales flyers, lawn signs and MLS listings and in every case he did an excellent job of capturing each home's personality and showcasing each home's best features and selling points. The photos were crisp, clear, well lit and beautifully composed. His expertise with his wide angle lens provided excellent coverage of even the smallest and most cramped rooms with absolutely none of the distortion that many less professional real estate photographs seem to suffer from. Chris was very personable, easy to work with, and able to meet our scheduling needs for each and every shoot. His prices are more than reasonable, his turnaround time was extremely fast and we could not be more pleased with his services. We would highly recommend him to anyone that needs the services of a professional real estate photographer - you only get one chance to make a good impression with a potential buyer and he will make sure your home is able to put it's best foot forward!
Ryan Erlandsen Photography is amazing. From wedding photos to family photos, he's always provided the best customer service and amazing, quality photos. We've used him multiple times in the past 5 years and have referred him to others who have been just as pleased. He's easy to work with, listens to your ideas, wants, needs, and is professional. Our family looks forward to many more photo sessions to capture special moments with Ryan and highly recommend him.
Alfred volunteered to photograph our annual conference in 2016. He was professional, courteous and eager to learn about what we did so that his photographs would be all the more effective. In the end they were fantastic photos that we will use for social media as well as print. I would recommend Alfred to anyone looking for a high-quality professional photographer.
Adam was so easy to work. We requested candid photography for our event and the pics came out very good. Adam came in few mins early to the event and made sure he has all the right view and angles to cover the pics. He also bought portable lights for us as add ons to take few portrait pics of our family. Thanks Adam- we would hire you again and recommend to our friends and family Thanks Raj
I was SO pleased with the photos Jennifer Selberg captured for my blog and website. I have had several photo sessions with Jennifer including Christmas photos with my family the past several years, and each time I have been amazed at the photos Jennifer has captured. Her skill and attention to detail is just what is needed to make any photo look amazing! I look forward to using Jennifer for my future photography needs!
Rob came with his wife and the two did as much as two photographers. The quality of the resulting photography was excellent.
As an event producer I've worked with many photographers over the years and Paul Rich is one of the best out there. I've worked with Paul multiple times on events I personally produce and I've referred him to many couples for their wedding photography and he always brings it. He has a wonderful demeanor with guests and his photos are excellent. If you're looking for someone who is personable, flexible, and who cares about your needs as much as he cares about getting great shots Paul is the photographer for you; I recommend him without hesitation.
Kalie did some really outstanding photos for my son's senior picture and a family photo. She was really easy to work with and had some great ideas. I would hire her again the next time we need pictures.
We absolutely loved working with Kirsten for our family photos. She brought us to a gorgeous location, and made us feel so relaxed and comfortable. The photos are amazing - we all got teary looking at them because she was able to capture so much feeling in each one. The lighting, colors, composition....was all fabulous. I'm so glad she was able to capture this time in our life and would hire her again in a second.
All of the photographers and staff for Pastores Photography were kind, diligent, professional and fun to work with! As a model, I really enjoyed working with them! Hope to work together again sometime!
We used Fibre Creative for some long-overdue family portraits recently. Mike and Jenn could not have been more accommodating or professional. Mike's artistic eye made for some beautiful - and unusual - pictures, along with what one would consider "standard" photographs. He used both natural and artificial lighting to make each and every one of us look our best. I think it says a great deal about Mike's ability when I say that not a single family member has complained about how they look in the pictures! The photographs are a very welcome addition to the family historical record and we have Mike and Jenn to thank for that. We will definitely call them again for future events.
I had a wonderful experience working with Hrach. I had not previously used Thumbtack for photos, so I was a bit nervous and unsure of what to expect. From the beginning, Hrach was very helpful and calmed my concern. He asked for example photos of what I was looking for (yoga), helped me pick out a spot that met our requirements, and then was extremely professional and relaxed during the shoot. The whole experience of the shoot was very efficient - he was ready before I even arrived, and had excellent suggestions of photo locations - some of which were very unique and I would not have thought of on my own. The quality of the photos he returned was excellent - just as I was looking for. The qualities in the example photos I wished for were strong in these images, and I really appreciated his outstanding communication and positive attitude. I would highly recommend working with him as your photographer.
First off let me say that Jocelyn and Spencer at Jocelyn & Spencer Photography are two of most generous and understanding photographers I've ever met. The first time my fiance and I had our engagement photos done (else where) it was a total flop. I decided to look around for another photographer and that is when I discovered Jocelyn & Spencer Photography. I addressed my concerns to both of them, explaining how unhappy I was with the first experience I had. I was astonished with the amount of compassion these two had for us and genuinely looked forward to our photoshoot! During our photoshoot I never felt like I didn't have control over how my pictures where going to be, and the friendly atmosphere Jocelyn and Spencer provided I felt like I was working with great friends. I completely recommend these two to anyone who are looking for a couple of professional photographers, yet extremely fun and outgoing individuals! I can't wait for our next photoshoot. Thank you again Jocely & Spencer Photography!
