Greg was great to work with! He was very professional and incredibly patient while trying to take photos of our two year old son! Not an easy thing to do, but our pictures came out great! Thanks Greg!

Greg is a wonderful and talented photographer. He put us at ease and made the experience fun for my son's Senior pictures. He took time to talk to our son between photo shots and really listened to him and in the process captured our son perfectly! We wanted a natural outdoor setting and he suggested a location. It was really a great location. Greg is very professional and on time. We did not expect to see the pictures for a couple of weeks and instead had them within a couple of days! There were so many great photos it took my son over a week to decide on his favorite photo for his school yearbook.
We can not say enough about Greg! Thank you for truly special photos of our son.

Greg (and Britni) were so wonderful to work with!
We began our journey together from a groupon. Vendors have been very slow to respond in my past experience; this was not the case at all. Greg emailed me back right away, thanked me for my purchase and we began discussing what I was looking for. He recommended a few local areas and was willing to come to us; a huge perk!
We arrived at the park, not sure what to expect as we've never had a professional shoot, let alone with a baby. Greg put any worries to ease. He had arrived early, scouted the location and had some shot ideas in mind.
Greg was very detailed and focused on getting the right shots, but still allowing our son to roam around and explore.
We had a wonderful time, and shared a few laughs as I tried to keep my son from chewing on some crisp fall leaves.
Greg was very professional, friendly, fast, and amazing.
He returned our photos within 3 days!! He gave us many photos, and the rights to print; another huge perk!
We are so thankful we found Northwest Foto and wish Greg all the best in his photography business.

We had One Year Old pictures taken of my daughter, and we were SO happy with what Greg had done. The pictures turned out amazing, and he was so patient and great with her. She's always on the go, but he managed to capture so many terrific pictures of her. He brought some stuffed animals to keep her attention, which worked perfectly. And he recommended a great place to take the pictures. The backgrounds were beautiful.
He was very quick at getting back to me and responding to my questions. And he was very quick at getting the pictures all edited and posted on his website for us to view. I would definitely recommend him and I will definitely go back to him for family or individual pictures.

Greg was a lot of fun to work with. He made my daughter and I feel very comfortable. He got some great shots of us, which was not an easy task considering my 3 year was a bit on the wild side. I would recommend him to anyone looking to have their family photos taken.

My wife and I were lucky to have Greg & Northwest Foto capture our wedding in July 2014. Greg is not only a great guy, he is also a very talented photographer. He's incredibly easy to work with, works extremely hard to capture what the client wants, and has a natural ability to capture great moments on camera. My wife and I were SO happy with the photos Greg captured on our wedding day.
Additionally, getting to know Greg also led us to see his landscape photography, which is awesome. He's taken some beautiful shots of the Oregon countryside and well-known landmarks around Portland. We highly recommend booking Greg as your photographer for anything.

Used Northwest Foto to capture "One Year" portraits of our daughter, as well as some family shots.
First, I could not be more thrilled with the pictures that Greg captured. And I really mean capture, because our daughter never stops moving & just loves to go.
Second, Greg was very professional & prompt. He responded quickly to my request for a session, gave us ideas on good spot for the photos, was a ton of fun during the session, & the turn-around on viewing proofs online was quick!

"We purchased a Groupon for a portrait session of my daughter who's nearly 3 years old. I asked if we could choose the International Rose Test Garden for the site and though Greg voiced some concerns about people traffic, he was still amenable to shooting there. Greg is a supremely talented photographer who captures not only beautiful surroundings in creative ways, but also those precious brief moments when toddlers are naturally still. His trained eye picked out that a set of stairs toward the side of the garden would make a nice background. I never would've thought of that. His eye was right, and one of the best pictures he took was in that setting. Greg was on time and we were, regrettably, late. Greg was gracious in overlooking our error. He went above and beyond in his patience in working with a small child, the number of different areas that he shot in across the Rose Garden, and asking us if there were other shots that we wanted to take. Greg's an affable, down-to-earth professional and was a pleasure to work with."

"Greg was happy to meet us at our requested location and spend time scouting out a variety of settings for my son’s senior pictures. The pace was relaxed, and the process collaborative, making it a truly enjoyable experience. We are so pleased with the many wonderful images Greg was able to capture, especially as he made the most of the park’s many great backdrops, including some unexpected ones. We highly recommend him, both for his art and for his approach."

"Greg was a fantastic photographer to work with in all aspects of the business. He was incredibly timely in his email replies from my very first inquiry and he was well prepared the day of our shoot with lots of unique and fun poses for capturing my husband and I with our puppy and "baby bump!" Greg even helped us with determining the perfect locations for some great photos against the Portland backdrop so we could remember our short time living here. He deserves extra kudos for helping with handling our crazy 6lb chihuahua while snapping some incredible shots of just hubby and I. Finally we got some classic shots, candid shots as well as some very artistic and unique photos using our ultrasound picture of baby! Impressed and appreciative of our maternity photo collection! Thanks again Greg! "

Greg did a wonderful job taking our maternity photos. I really appreciated how accommodating he was with our schedule and the weather. Greg definitely wants to make sure that he gets the type of photos that you want. Fast turn around time in getting the photos edited.

My husband and I are moving to San Diego for our new jobs, and we asked Greg to do an outdoor photo shoot session to help us preserve memories of our lives in Portland. We don’t typically enjoy having photos taken, but Greg was very easy going and we felt quite at ease. His images turned out to be some of the best images of us! We can’t be more pleased. We highly recommend Greg and Northwest Foto - brilliant service, perfect photos, and fantastic experience.

Greg was the photographer for my wedding. It was a summertime farm wedding. He was there to photograph from setup to takedown. I love the photos! Especially the posed shots of my husband and me, as well as the families. He was very professional and fun and he is very easy to talk to. It was nice having a photographer that was "just another face" at the party (not in your face). I recommend him to everyone.

Great photographer getting his business up and running. Has a very relaxed and easy going manner. Makes you feel comfortable enough to be goofy or serious depending on the look you're going for. Will also shoot until you get the exact look and style you want in your photo.
