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.
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.
I chose Jerrad as a photographer and he was absolutely amazing. He had such a great attitude and spent as much time as needed with attention to details. The shots came out great.i highly recommend Stil Soul photo.
Deanna is the best! She is extremely talented, so genuine, and has a great eye for details. You will NOT be disappointed when working with Deanna. Her skills and talents are truly a gift! I highly recommend her as your next and only photographer! She photographed our wedding and several family sessions after we had kids!!
I am so Happy! Jen is an amazing Photographer. She actually got my son in a happy smile. She completely captured his personality. I am so happy that I chose Jen to take my son's senior portraits. She was professional from beginning to end. She was on site before we were, we were delayed by traffic and were a little bit late; but she was up and going when we got there. She was very personable and friendly. Her ideas for the location and lighting and poses made everything great. I would, and have been, recommending her to anyone that wants professional quality photos taken. I will Definately be having her take more photos of my son and my whole family too in the future. I couldn't be more pleased with the entire experience.
Jade has a fantastic photographic intuition! Absolutely wonderful at generating a vibe for fun pictures! She has an innate ability to orchestrate the delicacy of wedding photos by bringing family and friend groups together as well as a splendid sense of detail in capturing intimate photos of the bride and groom! It was a true honor, and a delightful enjoyment to experience her very professional and impeccable artistic skills at our wedding! Thank you Jade!
Ryan is a great photographer. He is easy and patient to work with and gets the shots you want. We are pleased with the head shots for my daughter. M. Radcliffe
Rob came with his wife and the two did as much as two photographers. The quality of the resulting photography was excellent.
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
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.
Shinee studios has taken a photoshoot for me and my wife last year and they did a fabulous job. The photographer had many ideas and props. They are enthusiastic, timely and creative
I was planning a surprise proposal to my beautiful girlfriend Kim after a thrilling skydive at Skydive Oregon in Molalla. At the last min, I realized that I need a photographer to capture this big day! It was the weekend before the big surprise and I did a quick google search for photographers in the area. Amber was quick to respond and her price was very reasonable. I contacted her immediately and filled her in on the details. Amber played a huge part in coordinating all our friends and teaming up with my brother to make sure everything went perfect in surprising Kim. I knew there was a lot of things that could have gone wrong, but Amber even took time out of her day to come early in making sure everything went accordingly. With Amber's help, our special day went perfect! To make it even better, Amber took very beautiful prints, candid and action shots. Family is very important to me and because of Amber, I have beautiful memories to share with love ones back home in hawaii. Thank you Amber for your beautiful pictures and bending over backwards on capturing a very special day! Lars Valencia
Best Photographer in the city.
As a thumbtack professional myself , I couldn't be happier to post a review here for Abby! I couldn't speak more highly of her incredible photography. She has such a beautiful artistic eye and knows how to capture those special moments. She makes you feel very comfortable during the shoot and offers great guidance. Her years of experience shine through every picture. She absolutely has a natural gift. I am an artist and musician and could definitely see myself using one of these photographs as an album cover! They're absolutely beautiful! Thank you Abby for such a wonderful experience. I highly recommend everyone to do a shoot with Abby!! Tara O'Brien :)
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.
She's simply the best photographer ever!!!
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.
Sienna and Josh are such an amazing couple and excellent photographers! Meeting with them to discuss our wedding was fantastic, they were on time, they answered all our questions, never hesitated on an answer! They were so kind and all around fun people! Felt more like having two new friends at our wedding than photographers! Our photos are beautiful and we were given a generous sneak peek while they still were working on them after the wedding. I highly recommend Sienna and Josh for your special day! They make taking the photos stress free and fun! Recommending them to ALL my friends and using them for any future photography needs I will have!
Our family has used Carly Menard Photography since my daughter was in my belly! She was our maternity photographer, newborn photographer, wedding photographer and has been our family photographer ever since! She came to our home when my daughter was only a few days old and took the most precious pictures of our little one. She was patient, calm, gentle and so caring with our new little babe (and with her stressed out Mama!). She is generous with her time and talent - never giving up until she has captured pure magic in her lens. She has never let us down, but continues to blow us away with her creative eye and ability to capture family in just the right light and moment. We adore Carly and give her the absolute highest recommendation. If you want a photographer you can trust with the most precious milestones and life events, Carly is the one.
We kept screening for photogaphers for our Pre-wedding and Wedding shoots who would not only capture the important moments but go that extra mile to capture them right - Lo and behold we met Jisha from JJ Photography. The quality of her previous work impressed us and we could gather that she had a great understanding of capturing moments and people during their big day. Her preparedness and professionalism stood out the most and she went beyond what would routine photographers do by making our shoot a lot more fun by getting to know us and our close ones. All in all, it was a great experience and credit to her for bringing out the best in us during our shoot and making our wedding pictures so beautiful. We just loved working with her and she is now a permanent fixture for all our events!
