"Photos can be weird and uncomfortable things for shy people. Sometimes as a musician, i want someone to photograph a live show but at the same time, seeing a lens can be intimidating and can throw me off. Patrick was easy to work with and was a non-invasive photographer that was able to capture beautiful moments from my bands final show like a fly on a wall. i would be happy to work with him again."

"I can't say enough good things about Patrick Garriepy Photography. I knew with out a doubt 3.5 years ago I wanted Patrick to shoot my Engagement photos, after I saw 1 photograph of his earlier that year. Patrick has since shot, a family portrait session, my 2 weddings, ( home and destination) and my maternity shoot.
Patrick is very professional, knowledgable, willing to try and learn new things. Most of all he really and truly has an eye for photography. I saw it in that one picture a few years ago and I am so happy to say that he is my Photographer!"
"We just did a family shoot with a 9 month old at Capron Park and Patrick knew exactly what shots would work with the best lighting. He was so patient and made our son laugh and got the best pictures. He is a perfectionist. He also did our new born pictures when our son was 2 weeks old and again was patient, and had the best poses and the pictures came out awesome. Highly recommend!!!"
"Prior to working with Patrick my wife and I had a relatively poor experience with our wedding photographer which left a bad taste in our mouth for professional photos. Especially when it came to providing payment in exchange for services. With a relatively short session not running us a tremendous amount, we gave Patrick a shot to photograph our family. Patrick worked with our crazy schedule to fit in a block of time that worked.
From the start, Patrick presented himself in a professional manner. The way he spoke about his vision for the location and our family showed that he put thought and planning into the shoot before even showing up. He worked well with our 1 year old son and had patience. Although we were tight on time, he worked remarkable efficiently without being sloppy. The final product took about a week to 2 weeks for him to send us the pictures and they came out far better than we had expected. The shoot went so well, that over a year later, we scheduled another shoot with Patrick and, again, he was professional and pre-planned what he wanted to do. Mind you this was a different location and a different season. Also, our son was now almost 2 and much more of a handful to sit still.
The experiences with Patrick mirrored one another. This presents a large impact considering over a year later, in a different location, and with new variables, he met the challenge and produced an amazing product we were happy to have.
Overall, we had a very pleasant experience with Patrick and would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking to do anything from a small shoot to a wedding. I wish we had him as our wedding photographer."
