It has been a pleasure working with Jim over several years for our major fundraising event photography as well as highlighting the accomplishments of our volunteers and clients. Jim has a way of capturing the mission of our organization with beautiful images that tell a story. These professional quality photos have been used in our collateral materials as well as featured in press articles. The catalog of images he has captured are invaluable to our organization!

The YWCA of Greater Portland truly values the excellent photography we have received from PDX Event Photography. Jim can work with limited direction in a fast-paced event and come out with beautiful photos that we use over and over again in print publications as well as digital communications. We look forward to working with him every year!

Wedding Reception

Jim Garrison is a truly gifted photographer. The photos he took at my daughter’s wedding reception were amazing. He captured many candid moments that were an excellent compliment to the more formal photos taken by her wedding photographer. Jim is very skilled at catching exactly the right moments, the ones that show the very essence of a celebration or event. We were also fortunate enough to have Jim take senior photos for two of our children. The outdoor photo shoots were so much fun, and the pictures turned out great. There were so many beautiful shots that it was hard to choose our favorites. Jim loves what he does and it shows.

Retirement Party

Jim Garrison’s work as a professional photographer is exceptional. He has an uncanny ability to capture the unique spirit and excitement associated with an event, and is mindful of the need for a variety of settings in which to display the fun and enjoyment being shared among those in attendance, not just all standing in one common area or venue. He is a master with light and color implications, helping preserve the intensity of the location. Jim is very mindful of the importance of seeing people in various points of connection. I would always enjoy having Jim provide his masterful photography to any event that engages people in ways you want to capture forever.
