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.
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 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 didnt 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 youre looking for someone guaranteed to deliver every time, your photographer is Deanna Sammons.
Kelvin did my wedding photos last year and I couldn't be happier! Friendly, personable, and very reasonable rates! I got my pictures very quickly after the wedding including them all being loaded onto a disc and edited. Highly recommend.
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.
We had the pleasure of working with Venia Photography for our engagement and wedding photos! For our wedding we got the opportunity to work with Rachelle and AJ. We got their full attention from getting ready in the salon to the moment we rode away in our chariot. They were so easy to work, professional, and creative. We were so happy to see some of the "surprise" shots they took behind the scene. We look forward to taking our anniversary shot with Venia Photography every year!
Stefani did my college graduation photos, my wedding photos, and a fun shoot that let me put my dress back on. She is extremely creative, and makes you feel completely confident and comfortable in front of the camera.
Rob came with his wife and the two did as much as two photographers. The quality of the resulting photography was excellent.
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!
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!
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.
All of the photographers and staff for Pastores Photography were kind, diligent, professional and fun to work with! As a model, I really enjoyed working with them! Hope to work together again sometime!
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
Jennifer gave us a better experience than we could of hoped for! She was kind, understanding, friendly, professional and really just wanted us to have the best experience for our maternity shoot. Not to mention that the photos turned out beautiful and just what we were wanting. Highly recommend anyone looking for professional photos to come to her!
Jessica did such a great job with the photos for our wedding!
Fantastic photographer, and great personality to go with it. You won't regret choosing Shannon for you photography needs.
Sebastian is amazing. He makes you feel super comfortable with getting your picture taken. As someone who is uncomfortable in those scenarios, Sebastian made it all a breeze, whether it was with a joke or letting me know that I’m doing great. He’s awesome and I highly recommend him for any sort of photo shoot you’re looking for.
Ann was an absolute joy to work with. She made my both my boyfriend and I feel comfortable in front of the camera and guided us into poses to create beautiful shots. I’m so happy with with finished photos we received and hope to work with Ann again!
Mary took our wedding photos and I couldn't be happier. We have so many gorgeous photos of our happy day! I would recommend Mary for any occasion over any other photographer I know. She is truly a wonderful photographer and a pleasure to work with!
