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 and Madye were wonderful photographers, and they captured really beautiful moments of us and our family members on our wedding day. They made us feel comfortable, and we enjoyed having them as a part of our big day!
I absolutely loved working with Kelly she's an amazing photographer and all my pictures turned out amazing! She takes you to the most fantastic spots and always makes you feel beautiful.
Jerrad is an amazing photographer and got all the photos we asked for. He is friendly, easy to work with, and we are very pleased with our photos. Thanks again Jerrad!
Took photos for mothers day at the beach! she came to me! Very kind and engaging with my younger siblings, the photos are outstanding! My mother loves them so much, I would recommend her to everyone I know!
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.
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.
Stefani has done many photo shoots for me and my husband, and we are never disappointed. I especially loved our wedding photos that she did, as they were so gorgeous and captured us so well. She has an eye for picking out great locations/backdrops, knows how to edit photos to look amazing, and delivers a quick turn around time for final photos. She is not only an awesome photographer, but is such a lovely person to be around and work with, which is super important. I totally recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer!
Our Unplugged Wedding in a Redwood Grove. A picture is just a picture unless it captures the essence of the moment. It takes someone with dynamic talent, an eye for composition, and understanding of human behavior and emotions to create aesthetically beautiful memories through pictures. If this is what you're looking for from a photographer, then look no further. Alfred is your guy! I could probably write a thesis about our experience that day-- how Alfred was incredibly professional, how he showed up super early and stayed super late, how he was friendly and accommodating, how he was like a ninja who quietly and efficiently got the job done, and how our pictures were delivered in the most thoughtful way--but I'm going to spare you all the details and just focus on what I think makes him unique. My (now) husband and I wanted to have an "UNPLUGGED" wedding ceremony for two reasons: (1) We got married outside in the middle of a gorgeous redwood grove and wanted our guests to be present in nature with us and (2) we wanted to see and feel everyone's emotions as the ceremony unfolded instead of looking at everyone through a screen. Alfred has a real talent for capturing both the beauty of nature and the subtleties of the many emotions we felt that day - it was perfect! When I look at our STUNNING pictures, I remember feeling inspired by the trees towering over all of us, I remember feeling hopeful for the future, and most importantly, I remember all the love. It is all bottled up, frozen in time, and ours to keep forever. Alfred, thank you for your energy and your passion. With love, Phoebe and Michael Keesey
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
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.
I had an excellent experience with Jennifer. She was very flexible in allowing my to take several different types of photos during one shoot. One of my professional photos required a specific backdrop to which she pulled off with perfection! My feedback in edits was well-received and I was able to review different styles of the same photo with the interface Jennifer uses. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a personal, professional experience, and those uncomfortable with most other photo sessions.
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.
Kirsten was phenomenal to work with! She was flexible and accommodating. So, sweet, patient and kind shooting our family with a little one so close to bed time too. She is exceptionally talented. I love every single thing about the photos she captured of our family. And she returned them so quickly and for such a steal of a deal! I will look no further for a photographer for future family photos and you should not either!
Kevin photographed all three of my children for their high school senior pictures and also my oldests college picture. He has also taken our family photos. He has a knack for capturing the best moment & greatest picture. He is reasonably priced & just does fantastic work.
Caitlyn did our wedding pictures and bridals. They turned out gorgeous! She made me feel so special and was extremely helpful throughout the day even though her only job was the photographer. I recommend her to every bride looking for an amazing and caring photographer. She is sure to capture your most beautiful moments PLUS her turn around time on photos is only a few days. Definitely will be hiring her for all future photo shoots.
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!
