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.

Steady State Studios were THE BEST videographers any couple could wish for on such an important day of your lives. After working with them for months pre and post wedding, we can safely say they are the kind of people you can trust that GREAT work will be achieved at the end of the day and everything you said, mentioned, will be heard and considered. Long story short, SSS and us were halfway around the world from each other, with a 15 hour time difference and they were accommodative, efficient & responsive from our pre to post wedding conversations. They tried their best to accommodate to our every request, as we were quite demanding! I am Chinese and my husband is Hawaiian, and we were incorporating traditions from both cultures into our wedding! We asked for a drone for our wedding at Youngberg Hill, they’ve not done any wedding shoots with drones before but very quickly found someone to help us/them with it and the results were breath-taking! We also needed them to do a quick turnaround as we were hosting a wedding reception for 250 people in Singapore about two months after our Oregon wedding and it was crucial these 250 people get to watch the highlights and ceremony of the wedding. On the day of the wedding, they were everywhere but nowhere, catching snippets of stuff that went on in and around the wedding party that was so amazing to relive or watch in our wedding video. Jason and Kevin had in their minds how and what would be included in the final product, capturing important details I’m sure other people would have missed. I could go on forever about our experiences with SSS but that would take forever! Finally, I would like to express our sincerest thank you and appreciation to these two amazing men for not only capturing the heart and soul of our wedding but being able to take our ideas and their own artistic licenses and create one of the best videos anyone we have shown the video to have seen! THANK YOU STEADY STATE STUDIOS!

Kelly took headshots for my guitar studio. It was the first time I worked with a professional photographer and I didn't know what to expect. She helped me feel at ease and did a superb job with my images. She did not hesitate to go the extra mile so I could get the pictures I needed. Kelly is great! I highly recommend her.

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!

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!

Alfred volunteered to photograph our annual conference in 2016. He was professional, courteous and eager to learn about what we did so that his photographs would be all the more effective. In the end they were fantastic photos that we will use for social media as well as print. I would recommend Alfred to anyone looking for a high-quality professional photographer.

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.

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!

I worked with Fibre Creative on a very special project that was near and dear to my heart: a video celebrating my coming out as a queer man. Coming out was the hardest and most emotional thing I have ever had to do and Mike and Jenn could not have been more sensitive, professional, and fun to work with! They consulted with me at great lengths to uncover the essence of what I had gone through and the final product was creative, thoughtful, and sweet. The quality of their work was astounding, and their storytelling was masterful. They went above and beyond by interviewing some of my best friends and family members to create a fuller picture of my life. They also took still photographs which I have used professionally and on social media. I could not be happier with them! I wholeheartedly recommend them for any videography/photography project out there. Check them out! PS: For the those interested, check out the video they made here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oh-CtG2jDQc

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!

Vanessa is an very talented photographer. She did both our engagement and wedding photos and she did such a great job. We both are awkward posers but she made sure she coached us during the portraits and made the photos look natural and beautiful. Her candid shots were amazing. She is very professional and friendly and prompt in responding or answering our questions. We loved working with her.
