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 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.
Had a great time with Deanna. She was very flexible in the timing and was able to provide a venue for outdoor shots of our family. This was to our benefit because that's the setting we wanted, and hers because she did not have to travel anywhere and knew the landscape and how to best shoot in it. The preview pictures we've seen so far look wonderful, exactly what we were looking for. Thanks!
Juan is a treasure we were fortunate to discover in Portland when we were searching for a photographer to shoot our family's portrait. Nothing disturbs this artist and all our requests were satisfied. He is a true professional and we are very happy with the photographs. Hire Juan and your photography concerns will be answered.

We enjoyed our photo session with Ryan. He put us at ease and was professional and efficient. He took some beautiful outdoor pictures.
I found Rob on thumbtack and really liked the uniqueness and quality of his photographs. He was excellent in working with our family both with our tight schedules and with an infant. He took extra time editing the photographs and taking me through the steps to review, download and purchase the memorable family pictures that will last a life time. I would recommend him for anyone who wants excellent photography for any family or special event. He was great to work with, prompt, helpful and professional.
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.
Jen did a great job of taking family photos of our dads 84th birthday. She mingled among the guests and made everyone comfortable. Jen and her helper Shawn were both patient with the kids and able to keep them focused. She is very proffesional arriving early and we were able to get photos within a few days.
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!
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.
We got a family portrait with parents taken by the studios in Minneapolis recently. The pictures came out great and we are receiving rave reviews for it. We also had a pre-wedding video shoot done which was amazing fun. It captured our relationship perfectly and has become a memory we will always cherish - A & P
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.
Roo is our go-to photographer for all of our family's major life events! From pregnancy photos, to family pictures, and photos for our family Christmas card, he always knows how to capture the moment! Aside from being GREAT with babies, he is extremely patient and caring when it comes to getting everyone in position for the perfect shot. Best of all, he's extremely down-to-earth while maintaining professionalism. I never feel like he's rushing us or not receptive to the type of "mood" we're trying to capture. I'm pretty particular of what I want from our photo shoots and he is GREAT at being very accommodating and understanding! I wouldn't recommend anyone else for family photos!! Trust me- I've worked with 3 other photographers and he's hands down, the best!!!!
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.
Rachel is so easy to work with. She is the perfect photographer for family portraits. We had two babies in our portrait and she has a knack for getting that perfect shot! She makes you feel very comfortable and that translates to a photo that really captures the moment. I would work with her again!
Jessica is hands-down the best photographer in the area. We couldn't be more happy with the photos she took for our wedding. We wanted someone who could take quality photos inside and outside, and Jessica could do both well. Almost every other photographer I looked at had pictures that looked fake, or were blurry inside. She was the best photographer we could find, and in our budget too! She was wonderful to work with and it was a lot of fun having her capture our special day. I recommend her highly.
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.
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.
Seppi was fantastic and I wholeheartedly recommend him. My husband and I weren't super familiar with the Portland downtown where we got married (we chose it because it was central to our parents) and Seppi was great with walking us around and helping us pick good places to do photos. He was busy doing pictures of us and our families the whole time, even when we had a few minutes waiting at the courthouse he took that moment to get shots of the rings. He was funny, charming, a hard worker, and just a really nice person and a great photographer.
Noah was great with our young family. He was so patient and kind as the human aspects of a photographing session with a newborn made themselves known. As a new mother, I had high expectations for my family going into this session: we would all look our best, and appear well-coordinated, happy, and connected to each other. But my son was having a fussy day and so it was difficult to get positive shots together. But both Noah and his assistant Taylor were constantly calm and fearless about capturing each moment as it came. Some of the sweetest photos that came out of the session were candids of me soothing Theodore when he was upset. Noah is really good at taking advantage of the pure emotion and wrapping it in an image that is cherished; he just kept shooting and smiling at Theodore and we ended up getting some good sad ones as well as happy ones. His peacefulness, persistence, and words of encouragement helped us truly feel comfortable to shine and be ourselves. I love the raw feeling he was able to capture in our images, and his lighting and composition style are so cool. I feel like he treats the act of photography like art: honoring the muse and participating with inspiration when it strikes. The result is a series of truly creative images that reflect his signature as well as our own. I can't wait to hang our prints in the nursery! All of the communication with him has been very professional and timely, but also laid back with an authentic voice which has made us feel familiar from the start. Highly recommend Noah Richard Photography for your family photos!
