Gareth was great! He is a planner like us. He had us write down posed photos we knew we had to have, some ideas for semi candids and the rest we turned him loose to use his talented eye and really awesome camera gear! The result was quick work that felt like ballet allowing more time for so many priceless memories to be captured for all time. My favorite Gareth memory is him bouncy up to me with a giant smile on his face to show me the beautiful photos he had just taken of my daughter and son-in-law!. Who does that? Gareth does!
Gareth was an absolute delight! He was fun, energetic, and efficient! He kept us on track the entire day and made everyone feel so special. We were so blessed by him and his talent! I also loved that he showed us previews of our pics immediately after he took them, which was so fun! Thank you Gareth for making Joshua and I's wedding pics so amazing!
We absolutely loved everything about choosing Gareth as our wedding photographer. I can't say enough good things! Not only does he take gorgeous photos, but the way he interacts with clients on the wedding day is a huge bonus. After the wedding, I had multiple wedding guests rave about him. He and his wife were willing to do anything to keep stress low and the day going smoothly--from helping groomsmen tie bow ties, to keeping everyone on track with the photo schedule, to joining in the dance party to get the best shots. He was amazing to work with--timely, talented, and we are so happy we chose to work with him for both our wedding and engagement photos.
Gareth was wonderful to work with! He was so easy to talk with and so accommodating to our family. I appreciated his ideas and the wonderful pictures he took. Gareth truly took unique pictures of the wedding, our family, and the reception. I just can't say enough about how wonderful he was to work with. I would highly recommend Gareth Patterson for any photo needs. We will definitely be using him again for family photos, as well as our other two daughter's weddings. Sincerely, Stacey Strickland (mother of the bride)
As soon as we got engaged, one of the first things I knew was that I wanted Gareth to be our wedding photographer! I have always admired his photos, and knew that I wouldn't trust anyone else to capture everything so perfectly. Even then, Gareth exceeded our expectations! He was so responsive throughout the entire process, and even traveled 6 hours round trip to take our engagement photos and never made it seem like an inconvenience. My now husband is so awkward in photos, but Gareth laughed right along with us and still got in amazing shots! At our wedding, Gareth was very organized and prepared, while still staying relaxed and calm. He was able to direct everyone to where they needed to go and when. I've been to so many weddings where the wedding party and family pictures took forever because things were a mess and the photographer wasn't directive enough- I was so thankful to have a much more positive experience with Gareth. We were able to get the family pictures finished quickly and get to our reception and to the fun much faster! He captured all of our special moments, and I never had to worry about anything being missed. After the wedding, we got several preview photos within a couple days, which was so fun and exciting! And then he got the rest of the photos to us really quickly as well, kept us updated the entire time, and was willing to answer any questions we had. We ended up ordering a beautiful photo album from him too, and will treasure these photos for the rest of our lives!
Like a dream come true; Gareth and Jet are amazing! Very professional from start to finish, and a joy to work with. Our wedding day went so smoothly as we did not have to worry one little bit that our day, and the moments we live for, would be captured as we deserve. Gareth’s photography process is easy and clear. We definitely recommend Gareth Patterson Photos to anyone!
We couldn't be happier with the experience we had with Gareth and his wife as second shooter. They helped us both feel so at ease on such a stressful day. Garrth made the day truly special and our photos completely unique to us as a couple.
A wedding is an incredibly special moment in the lives of two families and moms and dads want to be able to experience that moment to its fullest. To do this you have to be present in the moment experiencing every special detail as it unfolds. That is only possible when you have a trusted and talented photographer--someone who comes to know the couple well enough to understand the essence of who they are together and as individuals and is responsive to what is important to them and what they want to be able to revisit through photos from their wedding day. Gareth Patterson did that for our family! The wedding photos will allow us to reminisce as we bring the full presence of our memories from that special day for Lauren and Elika. Thank you, Gareth!
So happy Gareth Patterson was the photographer for our wedding! He beautifully captured all the special moments from our day. Love the variety of packages he offers too! There is one to fit every budget.
We were so pleased with the job Gareth did at our daughter's wedding. We felt that he got all the shots we wanted and even some that we hadn't thought about. He was so easy to work with -- and operated smoothly and efficiently.
Gareth did a wonderful and professional job on our photos. He was very creative, and also endured chilly temperatures to get the shots we wanted for our December wedding! I also appreciated his quick responses whilst communicating throughout the planning process. He answered my many questions diligently. His prices are fair, and even during the holiday season our proofs were back to us very quickly which was absolutely amazing!
The wedding was gorgeous and Gareth did an amazing job capturing all of the special moments. Gareth was able to share photos right away and we love them all. We absolutely cannot wait to see all of the photos.
From the first email contact with Gareth Patterson Photos, we felt he would capture the special moments of our daughter's wedding! He asked questions we hadn't even considered to insure the photos included every magical moment of the day. When Gareth arrived at the venue, his calm and cooperative attitude was balanced by creative suggestions and directions that made taking photos efficient and fun! We are thrilled with the images - treasured memories for a lifetime!
I wish we could get married all over again and again and again. And we would choose Gareth Patterson Photos every time. Gareth is VERY talented, personal, and professional. He and his team made sure to meet ALL of our needs, and even went above and beyond. We were so impressed at how easy and smooth the process was to work with Gareth. He was reliable, punctual, and captured our day better than we ever imagined. So pleased! 5 months later and my background of my phone and computer are still Gareth's photos (and will be for a very long time). :)
Mr. Patterson was very polite and very professional. His photos are amazing! Anyone in need of a photographer would be blessed to have him. He is a true artist!!
Gareth went about and beyond with our wedding photos. I can't even begin to explain our happy we are that he was our wedding photographer. He was such a joy to have around. He makes you comfortable and laugh and he's so patient with a bride who's not so great at taking pictures. The turn around time for proofs was faster than I even thought possible. I whole heartedly and enthusiastically recommend him. Thank you for your hard work.
From the engagement session to the wedding / reception, Gareth was so comfortable to work with and always shot with our best interest in mind based on what was natural for us. He has such a talent for finding the best pose, angle and lighting and did an incredible job of capturing our personalities. After being 45 minutes late to shoot my bridals because of traffic and road closures, Gareth assured me, despite my stress, that we had more than enough time to get them done. He was a blast to work with but more importantly, his top priority to ensure the moments we wanted to remember forever were beautifully captured!
Just got the proofs from the wedding Gareth did and amazing job. He was wonderful to work with and captured the wedding celebration perfectly!
We loved having Gareth at our wedding. It felt like having a close friend by our side, he allowed the day to flow and didn't force it or over demand anything of anyone. The family photos were quick and easy. We hardly noticed him in the events, which was a breath of fresh air. The photos were beautiful and natural - I can't wait to show them to our kids and grandkids someday!
I couldn't be happier with the way our pictures turned out or just the process of working with Gareth. Gareth was always quick to respond to emails, texts, or my phone calls. He made sure to take the time to answer all of my questions and to give me answers to questions I hadn't even thought to ask. He was so patient with me as I looked through his packages and continued to ask questions. It was SO nice to know he just wanted me to have everything I wanted and could afford in my budget. He helped me walk through forming a timeline and planning out pictures to take within my timeframe. I was SO impressed with his patience and devotion to making the wedding day easy and fun. His wife was a wonderful help and they work so well together! We just received our pictures and they are ABSOLUTELY breathtaking! PLEASE pick Gareth Patterson if you are searching for a photographer. You will NOT be disappointed! Thanks Gareth for all you did for us!! We are so thankful for you and your wife!
Awesome, awesome, awesome! Could not have asked for a better wedding day experience, or a better photographer. Thank you for cutting down the chaos by knowing exactly what photos you needed and being a few steps ahead of everyone else at all times. Very friendly, patient, easy to work with, and did a great job making everyone feel comfortable and relaxed. We are all still in awe of the final photos! Thank you, Gareth!
Gareth and his wife are absolutely amazing to work with. He is accommodating, patience and is a true professional thoughout each session. His pictures are stunning and I am anxiously awaiting the final shots from our wedding that I know he captured so beautifully! I would not have chosen any one else for the day.
From the engagement photos,to the bridal session, to the wedding day, I just can't say enough on how impressed I am with his vision. He captured the essence of our wedding experience. He was helpful, fun, knowledgeable and above all professional! The photos were beautiful! Anyone who chooses Gareth is getting a real gem of a photographer!
Gareth did an amazing job capturing all of the special moments on our wedding day. The pictures that he and his wife took were awesome. Looking at the photos made it seem like I was going back to the exact moment it was taken. Seeing the pictures of my beautiful bride made my heart soar! Gareth even made sure Summer and I had time to ourselves in all of the wedding celebration. It was the best day of my life and I am glad that Gareth was able to catch all of those candid moments.
As a bride, you don't just hire the photographer for the end-goal (the pictures). Obviously that is the MAIN reason, but there are several minor reasons too. For mine and my husband's wedding, I knew that we wanted someone who could blend in but could snap a perfect moment, someone who could also command a crowd without being overbearing (let's face it, family pictures are tough), as well as someone who could remind me of why I surrounded myself with such chaos. Gareth and his lovely second shooter/wife (It's adorable, I know) were everything I had hoped for; professional, affordable, creative, encouraging, fun, communicative, and comfortable. They are for sure the best in the biz!
