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.

Where to begin! Working with Meghan was instantly a great fit. She was right there with me from our first meeting through the collaborative process and of course during the two full days of shooting. I asked a lot of her and she delivered above and beyond my expectations. I was so impressed with Meghan's work and professionalism I've already booked my next shoot with her. I highly recommend Meghan as a photographer and a retouching expert. She is my go to photographer for DEKKO moving forward!

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 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!

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 was so sweet and accommodating for us. She drove a long way to our property so that we could have our photos here, and included our two dogs and horse. We also booked her rather last-minute and she was so wondrful in helping us find a date that would work. She even got my youngest son to smile!! We love our pictures and can't wait to print and share them with our family and friends. Thank you KMJ Photography!! Sincerely, The Hayes'

I have so many good things to say about Angela and her photography! First I have to talk about the serendipity of our finally meeting. Angela and I lived in the same building in Northwest Portland for years without ever getting introduced! I moved down to the waterfront and work in St. Johns. When I was researching photographers for our ceremony I was hitting a wall, most studios had a minimum of time for shooting a wedding, usually at least 6 hours! Ours was going to be a very intimate shindig, 10-12 people including us and the judge, so we didn't need 6 hours of a photographer's time. I then had a stroke of brilliance and went in to Blue Moon Camera to get a recommendation, and got in touch with Angela. What a perfect match! She is so easy to work with, flexible, and understood intuitively the kind of pictures we were hoping for. We immediately got along like gangbusters, felt perfectly comfortable and at ease. And the results are perfect!

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!
