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.

Jerrad is the best photographer we have ever had the pleasure of working with. We had so much fun my family forgot we were even taking pictures. Every single shot is nothing short of amazing, I can't stop looking through them...I love every one of them! He's so kind and patient with children and somehow managed to capture the very best of all of us! He is very creative and has a great eye. We will be using him for all of our photos, I highly recommend him!

Verified review

My husband and I are church pastors and are in constant need of decent pictures to use for various things, so we scheduled a photo shoot with Deanna. She took us to a couple different locations, scoped out the surroundings, and then the rest was history. Artistry in the making! She has a way of looking at things that no one else does! She captures things that I didn’t even know existed and turns them into something that will literally make you catch your breath for a moment. When the pictures were ready, I remember being in awe by the beauty, the angles, the emotion in the pictures, the variety of landscape choices and photography techniques. Not many people have her gift. I also loved how I was able to download every single picture directly to my computer to use any time I wanted! If you’re looking for someone guaranteed to deliver every time, your photographer is Deanna Sammons.

Adam was wonderful to work with. He helped to put our staff at ease and captured some very professional images. He even offered to come and re-shoot any that we needed without charging us extra. The images are exactly what we were looking for. He is both prompt and extremely reasonable. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an experienced photographer. We will be using him going forward.

Kalie was AMAZING!! Such a joy to work with. She was friendly and professional every time I met with her. She did well taking direction from multiple people and did not seem to be bothered by random people yelling her name out to "take a picture" :). She had nice picture ideas and even brought props! Her rates are very affordable and definitely worth it!! I highly recommend her to others!!!

Abby distinguished herself from the pack at the get go by her warmth, professionalism and competitive pricing. I hired her for my sister's post wedding black tie party as a wedding gift. It was the best decision I made! She perfectly captured the spirit of the evening which was so happy and filled with love. Her eye and her sense of whimsy added a dimension to the photographs of this special evening that I think few photographers could capture. I wish I could give her 10 stars! Thank you Abby!

Chad was absolutely awesome. As this being my first photo shoot, he was funny and professional. He actually had ties and a watch if I needed one just in case. The attention to detail and the photo advice was priceless. I have found my new photographer as I could not imagine going to someone else.

I hired an Marie photography for my daughter's wedding they had eloped and then we're going to have a formal ceremony during his leave from the military. This was a hard task due to the fact that they didn't know when their we was going to be. On short notice Anne Marie and her husband worked with their hectic schedule, made it a lot of fun and I was able to give my daughter her dream wedding on a budget with beautiful photos for a lifetime of memories my other daughter is getting married next summer so I know I will be using her again! I highly recommend her!!!

Jules is a consummate people person and an all-around excellent photographer. Her ability to manage our team (during a highly stressful and busy time for us internally) and bring everyone together, add levity to the day, and bring out the poise and grace of each individual she photographed was unsurpassed. Her skill in bringing out the best in each individual was beautifully and authentically expressed through her images. I highly recommended working with Kismet. It was a total joy.

Thanks to Kevin, my college senior photos turned out incredible! The photos below are just a few of my favorite. All I did was show up with several outfits and Kevin professionally guided me from there! His humor ignites your most genuine laugh, ultimately capturing the best photos. And his ideas for posing are on point and easy to follow. With him, the photoshoot was comfortable, fun, and affordable. I highly reccomend him for all your photography needs!

My wife and I hired Chris as our wedding photographer. He was professional, arrived early, and was flexible with our requests. Everyone loved the photos he took. He found some great backgrounds near our venue to use. The pictures ranged from very candid to staged; but all of them looked awesome! We were lucky to have hired such a great photographer last minute. We'd highly recommend Chris to anyone looking for an event photographer.

I absolutely loved working with Tanya! Everything about the shoot was incredibly professional, while still being extremely friendly and kind. She made my photo shoot with 4 of my friends into a truly magical experience. We felt like movie stars and models. The shoot was an extraordinary and exhilarating experience, but nothing compared to the feeling of receiving our photos. Never in our lives had we seen more stunning pictures of ourselves. Tanya is an outstanding photographer who will make your wildest dream of an image into a stunning reality.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost for a photographer for a wedding?

Finding the right wedding photographer can make a big difference for your ceremony. Nationally, the average wedding photographer’s price ranges from $800 to $1,000, but costs can be much higher in areas like Chicago, New York or Los Angeles where some couples spend $2,000 to $5,000 or more for the photographer they want. Factors that can affect your wedding photographer prices include the photographer’s reputation and experience. Heavy hitters can command top rates, especially during wedding-season weekends. Day of the week also affects your cost. You may get a $200 discount on wedding photographer prices if you get married on a Friday in November rather than a Saturday in June. Time onsite is also an important cost factor. Hiring a photographer to snap photos from the moment you wake up until after last call at the reception is going to cost more than five hours of pictures during the day. Multiple photographers, special lighting, and videography will also increase your costs. Ultimately you want to find someone who has a style you love and can provide the number of edited shots you want for a price you can handle. Learn more about hiring a wedding photographer.
