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.

Ryan is an incredibly talented photographer! I went to him for new acting headshots, and was not disappointed at all. He is friendly and easy to talk to, and was willing to talk through what was working and what was not with each photo. I would definitely recommend visiting him for your photo needs!

He was so helpful with finding the right location, helping my wife move about and just being positive and great with dealing with my family. We had such a great experience with Juan and I would recommend his work to anyone wanting a professional photographer and want to spend the money for quality photos. He is such a good worker and even helped out with my wedding greatly when directing everyone! Such a good man. Would go to him again for any event!

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.

Stephanie was so patient and understanding with us! We actually showed up about 10 minutes late and she used that time to scope out the location to make sure we shot in the absolute best places. What an angel! This was me and my partner's first photoshoot and we were a little nervous but Stephanie immediately made us feel comfortable. Within minutes we were laughing, giggling, and we forget there was even a camera! The pictures came out spectacular and I cannot be more grateful for what Stephanie has captured. The picture I attached was perfect timing and that encapsulates the way she photographs, her timing is everything!!! I can't wait to get these printed and put up in our apartment. For those of you who might be nervous, she is a great photographer for first-timers. She isn't afraid to get dirty for the perfect shot and her smile and warmness makes you feel at home.

One of the better photographers I've worked with in the past. Most of the photographers on thumbtack are a scam or aren't actual photographers. I was skeptical at first but was happy to be proved wrong. Will work with again in the future.

The qualities of the photos he took of me were speechless and breathtaking. I've worked with photographers in Corvallis, Taipei, Hollywood before, but his support, concentration, and mood making while shooting were the best. He gave me advise how to move around my body, which smoothly got me in the different types of mood with ease. I did not know I could look that beautiful, artistic, and moody in pictures. Not to mention, he is such a nice person that you feel comfortable staying with for a long time, and he brings you into the different types feelings, and he reflects the moments in pictures. People who want beautiful photos should have Edis as their secret photographer.

Sarah Haimes has truly been a dream to work with. I started booking her travel dates and can't be even more thankful for having her be the one to document very precious moments of my life. She is primarily a wedding photographer, but OMG you know it's talent that no matter the time of day, or the location, or the genre of portraiture. Because Shuttergram Photography PREFORMS. That is the true beauty of working with a professional! Shuttergram Photography stands out from other photographers in the industry because of her unique eye and artistic approach to all sessions. She has strong work with single subjects all the way to group photos for families or wedding portraits. But what really gets me is her artistic editing and knowing how to highlight your best features that make you feel like a million bucks. I'm a proud client and supporter of Shuttergram Photography. And I've been contemplating on a vow renewal just so I can get wedding portraits with her artistic vision!

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.

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.

Stephan was very hardworking and professional before, through and after our photo-shoot session. He was on time and gave us a lot of good suggestions for how to pose. His communication skills are great and he understood our wants and needs very well. We were in a rush to get the pictures and he accommodated us by working to reduce the turn-around time on the photographs. The photographs came out very well and have since been used for professional brochures for my husband.

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.
