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.

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!

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.

I loved being able to work with Kelvin Watkins. My experience with him was very enjoyable! He was very professional and a incredible photographer. He delivered exactly the type of photos I was wanting. He is very creative and my photos came out great. I really loved being photographed by him and I'm very satisfied with the results of my photos. I recommend him to all who are in need of being photographed.

I needed to photoshop 2 pictures for my mom's memorial, and I had a 24 hour time limit. Tim contacted me immediately, gave me a great price and was done in 15 minutes. In one of the pics, my dad had to be removed, but it made my mom's shoulder look too small. Tim filled in the area by reconstructing a very difficult patterned blouse to fill in the void. Then he stayed in touch via email until I went to Kinko's and had the pics enlarged. He was very concerned that the project worked out well for us. Great work, great price, great guy!

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.

My wife and I knew that we wanted photos to commemorate our wedding, but we also knew that what we were looking for was less traditional. Additionally, neither of us had experience with professional photographers before, so we were a little nervous (but excited!). Katharine made us feel very comfortable and helped create a very memorable experience. We are definitely looking forward to working with her in the future and would absolutely recommend her services to anyone looking for outstanding photos!

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.

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.

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.

I have worked with many professional photographers over the years and Kerry is not only the most talented, but he is also just a really nice person and super easy to work with. He is an absolute perfectionist without being stuffy. Although he is full of great ideas, he was also very attentive and patient while i explained to him what i wanted. I would highly recommend Kerry to anybody who wants to have a high quality photographer at a very reasonable price for what you get.

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 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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
