  • Patrick Roddie is an extraordinary photographer. His is a candid, free-form style which catches the imagination, and his subjects, in a manner unlike any other photos of people I’ve seen.

  • I don’t know how he does it since he does not retouch his photos. To see his photos of me, and know that’s really me, is quite amazing. He has taken the time to get to know me, my baby, my family. And he has provided the most meaningful pictures for us.

  • He has a way of capturing the essence of each person and brings back to life the experience of being in the moment. We still can’t decide which photos to print out – they’re all so good. As for the other times I’ve worked with him, let’s just say that I never thought I was photogenic until I met Patrick.

  • His style of photography — candid shots, artistic quality not your basic studio photos, focusing on getting the perfect lighting to capture the moment and the people — was exactly what we were looking for. After a very short time, we forgot Patrick was in our home.

  • I’ve always been a huge fan of his work, but he absolutely blew me away as our wedding photographer. We just got married at San Francisco City Hall on the first day of legal same-sex weddings. He somehow managed to both give us our space so we almost forgot he was there, and simultaneously he didn’t miss capturing a moment.

  • Patrick was great! He also helped when our faces were too shiny or our bra straps were showing. All my guests were commenting on how they have never seen a wedding photographer work so hard – he really got into it and as a result we have some beautiful and unexpected pictures. And he’s just an all around sweetie!
