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.
Incredible videographers !! When their team came to shoot our wedding video, (my husband hates cameras), but we barely even noticed they were there - just like they said it would be! He was amazed. Save for a couple of special "scripted" action shots that we wanted to make our video pop, they were nearly invisible so that we could focus on being there with our family and friends. They captured all of the important heartfelt moments of the walk in, the ceremony, grandparents laughing and friends crying, killer dance moves and our full party set up (we had a lot of special decorations) and the video told everything beautifully for a huge emotional impact. We considered going with a more expensive service that would have been twice as much, but I'm super glad we chose to work with Jason and Kevin since they always maintained prompt communication, flexibility with our video edits, and an extremely high quality outcome. I would highly recommend them for everyone - top notch, very well put together video, and very fun people!!
Kelly was fabulous to work with and I would recommend her to anyone who needs a professional photographer! She took beautiful pictures of my son for his senior portraits, was great to work with, went above and beyond with her service to us in providing us pictures and made the entire experience a memorable one. I will definitely use her again in the future!
Kelvin is a very skilled photographer and a pleasure to work with. I look forward to giving him more assignments in the months ahead!
Juan was great to work with. We had a small courthouse wedding with a five minute ceremony, but we wanted to get dressed up and a professional photographer anyway. We had a limited budget, and other photographers came in with lower offers, but we felt more comfortable that Juan would help us with great photographs that we could share with all of the friends and family that couldn't be at the actual ceremony. Juan was on time, excited for us while also being professional, and was able to cater to special requests. Even though we were a small wedding, we felt that Juan gave us the same attention as if we were throwing a huge bash, and we were thrilled with the quality of the photos and the timeliness of his delivery.
Top notch service! It was an absolute pleasure to work with the photographers at Impression Arts. Not only were they really nice and fun to work with but they were consummate professionals and their creativity rendered fantastic photos. I could not have asked for anything better. They captured the best in our wedding ceremony and reception and we'll remember it for the rest of our lives.
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!
Rob came with his wife and the two did as much as two photographers. The quality of the resulting photography was excellent.
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!
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.
Great photographer, been working with Rip City Photography for about a year now and he provides great photos, very easy to communicate with via, email, calls, or text, Chris sends us to copies and is very well priced for his services.
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.
KMJ Photography really worked hard for our event. I would recommend them to anyone for photography services.
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.
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!
Boyd was truly a joy to work with! The video he produced for us surpassed our hopes and expectations. Boyd was very responsive, helpful, professional, and a super talented videographer. You will not be disappointed. We are so thankful to have had the opportunity to work with him and look forward to working with him again!
Johnny was very easy to communicate with and was extremely punctual and professional the day of filming. I would recommend Johnny to anyone looking for an event videographer!
Tamara Sloboda was a phenomenal videographer to work with. My wife and I are able to relive our best day of our lives through the amazing wedding video that was created by TessFilms. I would highly consider using her for your wedding. Very professional, always serious, business like and very easy to work with. The communication was important for us and she went above and beyond what we expected. The best surprise was when we were handed our video in a little cute, wrapped present. Thank you so much Tamara Sloboda!!!
Jacob is a great photographer and a lovely human. I was stunned after he sent the finished prints to me, my family loved them!
David is a true Artist. The quality of his work is impeccable (both because his camera equipment setup is outstanding and because he is incredibly talented as a videographer). He was an absolute pleasure to work with and get to know. A lovely person and a very talented artist. And his prices were by far the most competitive in town, especially considering the quality of his work. I imagine he could charge three times as much for the kind of work he produces. Yeah I said it! He is that good.
