My fiance and I did both our engagement and wedding photos with Porter. I literally could not be more happy with my choice. She did an excellent job of getting all of the essential photos that you need for a wedding along with some absolutely gorgeous artistic shots.
Porter did a wonderful job on my wedding pictures! She was even able to make my husband take pictures without him running away or turning to me and saying "no more!" She was very professional in her interactions with everyone at the wedding and made sure that we got all of the photographs that we wanted. The pictures that she produced with absolutely stunning! I am more than happy with the results, I only wish I would have done the engagement shots!
Porter was exactly the photographer we needed. We were looking for someone with a photojournalist's eye, and who would be comfortable with our very low-key, nontraditional event. Porter totally embraced it, and understood exactly what our priorities were (we didn't want a ton of posed group shots; we did want good portraits, and lots of photojournalistic candids, and shots of all of the details). She did all of that, beautifully. She also made the shoot painless for my husband, who hates having his picture taken -- she put us both completely at ease.
We appreciated so much Porter's friendly, down-to-earth approach. She's incredibly easy to work with, and very responsive and professional. She was also extraordinarily supportive, patient and flexible with her schedule when our venue backed out on us at the last minute and we had to change the time and location of the wedding.
We feel so lucky to have been able to work with Porter as she is embarking on her photography career. She is enormously talented, and we feel certain that one of these days, we'll be able to point to her work and say, "The famous Porter Watkins shot our wedding when she was just starting out!"
Porter Watkins is a fabulous photographer and a great person to work with. She wrangled my 50+ person family into pictures in less than 30 minutes, she gave my new husband and I some time to ourselves and she totally fit right in with the guests. I cannot express how happy I am I found her and our pictures are beautiful and timeless. You can't go wrong with Porter, I promise.
Porter was great to work with! She took our engagement photos for us. We weren't sure what we wanted as far as location and didn't have many ideas, so Porter made some suggestions and we ended up with a great set of engagement photos! We met Porter on a Sunday night and she was very friendly, easy to talk to and made it easy for us to be comfortable while taking our photos! (Which is SO important!) She had some really great ideas for photos that are out of the norm, and did a wonderful job of placing us in locations to really get a great shot, and has a total gift with finding perfect lighting. She had our photos touched up and a few posted to a blog within a day or two, and we had our final shots shortly after! We had a wonderful experience with Porter and recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer who does great work and makes you feel comfortable!
Porter did a great job photographing our June 2011 wedding. To be honest, we were a little nervous when booking her because she hadn't done that many weddings before and so had relatively few example pics to show. But the rest of her photography was beautiful and eye-catching, so we decided to take a chance.
That was a really good decision. Porter was easy to work with, liased with us and with our coordinator really well, and dealt with wrangling family into shots with ease. She was incredibly willing to work with what we wanted out of the day's photographs, and she did an amazing job. I love that the pictures she took aren't cookie-cutter wedding photographs. Instead, they perfectly represent the tone of the wedding and our unique day. I would hire her again in a second!
