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!!
Ryan is an outstanding photographer! He was quick to respond to my request, we met shortly thereafter and had a great photo session. His work is some of the very best photos I've ever had taken.
Rob came with his wife and the two did as much as two photographers. The quality of the resulting photography was excellent.
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.
Ethan photographed our engagement and after seeing the quality of his material, there was no doubt we wanted him for our wedding. His positive nature as a person and his abilities as a photographer provided us life-long memories and we are forever grateful to him!
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 recently worked with Adam and couldn't be happier with both the process and outcome of the shoot. Very professional yet personable, very punctual and an awesome photographer. I would recommend giving New World Industries a shot!
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.
Wonderful and talented photographer! Takes direction well and executes with class. I highly recommend Karney for your next project! ~ April Banta
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 was amazing! We had our wedding at an outdoor location (state park in Sonoma County). She really maximized the potential that the images could have had in such a setting! Our wedding photos are absolutely stunning and memorable and I would work with her again in a heartbeat. She was very thorough ahead of time in making sure she had all of the necessary details to help her have a successful shoot. But most of all she is so enjoyable as a person! We had such fun with her and our guests and family commented on what a joy it was to have her as our photographer. She was timely, professional, fun, warm, and really able to capture some amazing moments that we can treasure for a lifetime!
I used Fibre Creative on a personal interview video I needed for my business, The video came out perfect and exactly what I had in mind. Additionally Michael Morris made some still photography portraits that I consider the best pictures of myself I have had taken. I highly recommend Michael and Jen at fibre 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
She's simply the best photographer ever!!!
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.
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!
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!
