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.
Jarrad is an amazing photographer. He was patient, he was kind, and he took amazing photos! We have a family of 4 and he took photos of us at a park and at our home. We found him on Thumbtack last minute because our original photographer had an emergency and we were not going to cancel the shoot (it took far too much work getting the kids prepared to take photos). I submitted my Thumbtack request at 6:30 on Saturday morning and by 8:00 am we had 12 Thumbtack responses. I am so thankful that we booked with Jerrad. And I am so thankful that Thumbtack exists. Who knew such an amazing site with such amazing talent existed!! If he'll have us, we'll use Jerrad again!
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.
It was a pleasure working with Kelvin on my daughter's senior pictures. He is very easy-going and was able to curb her initial panic and get here to enjoy herself. The photos turned our beautiful - so hard to choose my favorite. I would definitely recommend him to anyone needing a great photographer. My daughter says that Kelvin "is nice and fun to work with. He had some great ideas and the pics came out amazing."
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.
Couldn’t be happier with Rob`s work for our pregnancy shoots! I love my maternity photos – it was such a wonderful thing to do just before giving birth! Rob was absolutely incredible to work with. He is experienced, very creative and his warm personality brings out the best in his subjects, especially if you are unsure of how to "act" in front of the camera. He makes you feel completely relaxed and at ease, and it truly makes a difference in your photos. I have to say Rob actually makes taking photos fun! I'd consider myself not photogenic until I started working with Rob - he really works his magic and can give just the right direction to make all the difference. I absolutely love my maternity photos and can’t believe how fantastic Rob made me look just a week before giving birth! Him and his assistant were patient but professional, giving us tips throughout the session to make sure the pictures came out great. At every moment they were kneeling, bending, standing on chairs just to get the shot they wanted. Rob is very dedicated to get the best shots, it is clear though that he truly loves what he does. Robs photos are stunning, natural and proudly hanging throughout our home. We will treasure our photos for years to come and will likely be back for future family shoots. Rob is also great at portraits and wedding photography. Check out his blog for loads more cool pics. He has an incredible eye for the "right" shot, being a top notch photographer and we are so happy we hired him! I would recommend him for any special occasion you want to remember forever.
Stefani did our family portraits; we LOVED them! My daughter (and husband) aren't great with cameras on demand and she was wonderful with them. Her props and techniques were the perfect way to get some of the most amazing candid family photos ever. I will be recommending Stefani to anyone who asks about family photos and we hope to work with her again for updated photos (and hopefully maternity shots one day :) ) I literally could not pick my favorites out of the 100 something photos we got.
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!
Great experience! She was so nice and fun to be with! Also an amazing photographer! I'm so glad I chose her as my senior picture photographer! & im looking forward to keep getting pictures taken from her :)
We hired Shinee Studios services for our Maternity Shoot pictures! Extremely satisfied!! Photos came out BEAUTIFUL!! Shiva was very patient, creative and he was more than happy to accommodate our ideas for the photoshoot. Would definitely recommend Shiva.
Felicia did an amazing job taking maternity photos for us. She captured some wonderful images for us that we will have forever!! I would definitely recommend and use her again in the future for a variety of photo needs!!
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!
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.
I hired Jenn to do my maternity pictures. She was so warm and we felt so comfortable with her, like we’d been friends for years. We had a great time and I would definitely book her again. When I got the pictures back I was amazed at the quality of the work! She did an amazing job and is a wonderful photographer.
Dana is one of the best photographers I have ever worked with. She has a unique perspective which has given me the most beautiful and creative pictures I have ever had taken
By far one of the best photographers I’ve worked with
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
Nathaniel is an incredibly talented photographer and I love the way my photos turned out! He's easy to work with and has a great eye.
