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.
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!
Kelly Mooney is absolutely the best photographer our family of 6 has ever used! She is creative, and truly captures the essence of the people she is taking photos of. She has taken 2 of our children's senior photos, family photos and birthday party photos. She has a natural ability to bring out the best in those she is photographing.
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.
Ryan is awesome. He's personable, friendly and professional. Just tell him your ideas and he takes it up a notch. Ryan did our family photos and we just get tons of compliments. We never imagined they'd really turn out so well. He over delivered by far. I then hired Ryan to do some photography for our business and the end result was equally as exceptional. We did product photos, business headshots and some shots of the office spaces and made our project turn out miles better than using typical stock photography. We couldn't recommend anyone higher than Ryan.
Stefani did a fantastic job working with our loud and rambunctious family for our wedding! She was on time, studied the look we were hoping for in our photos, and delivered excellent professionalism all day long! She was incredibly easy to work with, and I would highly recommend her. We will gladly seek her services in the future with our family portraits and other life events. She was great!
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!
Ethan worked with us to get the perfect family portrait. A toddler and baby made things a little challenging but we are very happy with the results. Would definitely hire him again.
We have hired Chris on 4 different occasions to take photographs of rental properties that we were selling. The photos were used for our promotional sales flyers, lawn signs and MLS listings and in every case he did an excellent job of capturing each home's personality and showcasing each home's best features and selling points. The photos were crisp, clear, well lit and beautifully composed. His expertise with his wide angle lens provided excellent coverage of even the smallest and most cramped rooms with absolutely none of the distortion that many less professional real estate photographs seem to suffer from. Chris was very personable, easy to work with, and able to meet our scheduling needs for each and every shoot. His prices are more than reasonable, his turnaround time was extremely fast and we could not be more pleased with his services. We would highly recommend him to anyone that needs the services of a professional real estate photographer - you only get one chance to make a good impression with a potential buyer and he will make sure your home is able to put it's best foot forward!
The photographer was on time and had a lot of good ideas for our daughter's wedding photos. She was concerned about the background and lighting, so directed the wedding party into the ideal locations for the best photos.
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.
Kalie did some really outstanding photos for my son's senior picture and a family photo. She was really easy to work with and had some great ideas. I would hire her again the next time we need pictures.
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.
Photographer was so friendly
I have worked with many professional photographers over the years and Kerry is not only the most talented, but he is also just a really nice person and super easy to work with. He is an absolute perfectionist without being stuffy. Although he is full of great ideas, he was also very attentive and patient while i explained to him what i wanted. I would highly recommend Kerry to anybody who wants to have a high quality photographer at a very reasonable price for what you get.
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!
This is such an amazingly gifted photographic artist. My wife and I are so pleased with the way the photos turned out. All of her photos will become our family keepsakes.
Jacob is a great photographer and a lovely human. I was stunned after he sent the finished prints to me, my family loved them!
