  • Booking Peter Mahar Photography was the best decision we made. I can't even begin to describe the amount of joy, excitement, calmness and artistry that Peter and Ben bring. Our engagement session with Peter was incredible. The moments he was able to capture were amazing and the outcome was awesome. He made our photo shoot feel like the most amazing adventure. Peter and Ben shot our wedding and WOW. Just WOW. I feel so lucky that I was able to have Peter and Ben shoot our wedding. The pictures we got back were not only in a timely manner, but they were unreal. I can't stop looking at them. Every picture is filled with emotion and a story from our day. Peter and Ben do more than just take pictures, they capture moments, emotions, and write a story with every image. And let me tell you, they are some of the best story tellers around. We love them and I want to give them a million stars.

  • I can’t recommend Peter & Susannah enough as wedding photographers. (In fact, I already have—our friends got their engagement photos done with them and loved them!) I hate having my picture taken and almost always feel awkward. My husband and I had SO MUCH FUN taking pictures both for our engagement and wedding. Peter is fantastic about coaching shots, giving you an idea of what to do and where to look, and most importantly—what to do with your hands. He will quite literally climb rocks or dive onto the ground to get the right shot. On the day of our wedding, Peter and Susannah showed up right on time and dressed professionally. My wedding coordinator was essentially nonexistent, and Peter stepped in and took over that role. He had my schedule printed out and in hand the whole time, making sure the day went smoothly. From the first look to the ceremony to the reception, it flowed exactly how I wanted. We just got our photos back and I cried. I didn’t even cry on my wedding day!... Read more

  • Peter was so easy to work with, especially for a destination wedding! He met us over FaceTime, and invested in getting to know us so he could really get the best shots for us. He was great with our family too, and not intrusive at all. The photos were early, and amazing! He shared over a blog post right away as well as an easy digital link to download. We are so happy with everything - he and his team are very talented. Highly recommend.

  • Peter is absolutely the best photographer we could have possibly asked for! If I could rate Peter six stars, I would have! We heard of Peter Mahar Photography through a friend of ours, who had hired Peter for their wedding the year before. Peter's based in Portland, we're in Eugene, so we coordinated with Peter via video chats and emails - Peter was always very responsive, profession, and offered tips, tricks, and pro-tips to make our engagement photos and wedding photos better than we could have hoped for. We opted for one of the wedding packages that Peter offered, so we got a one-hour engagement photo shoot, two photographers during our wedding, and a lay-flat photo album. "One hour" isn't quite accurate - Peter gave us at least eighty-minutes for our engagement session; and he worked with us to include our two dogs in the photos (which was really important for us). The day of the wedding, Peter's available hours were very clearly scheduled, but Peter actually showed up a couple... Read more

  • Peter and Susannah were a phenomenal team and captured our wedding in the most perfect light. Our pictures turned out better than we could have ever hoped and I would recommend them for every wedding/engagement (they did both for us). Reasons why we love them-- 1) The pictures they take are top notch. I've included attachments of some of my favorites which took a long time to decide on because I loved so many. The quality and style is unrivaled 2) Their style of capturing the wedding is authentic. Peter and Susannah do a great job of capturing the "in between" moments that really tell the story of the day. Of course they include the standard family and bridal party pictures, but so many of the pictures really capture the vibe of the day. It's the tiny moments without any of the theatrics that are some of my favorites. They found a way to capture the personalities of us, our families, and our guests 3) Their teamwork and ability to help lead you through the flow of the day ... Read more

  • Peter and Susannah were phenomenal! They were one of the best parts of our day. Peter is incredibly personable and easy to talk to. His prep beforehand was extremely helpful determining our timeline and working through what we really wanted. They are both so fun and enthusiastic about their work, and we definitely felt that on wedding day. They made us feel at ease and comfortable. My mom, sisters, and I had the most amazing/fun time getting me into my dress. Susannah was there and shot some of my favorite photos of the day. She captured the moments that I will remember forever and was so easy-going and made me feel comfortable. Their work will remain with us for the rest of our lives, and we could not have chosen a better photographer. Their work speaks for itself. My only regret is that it took me a year to write this review, because they are the best!

  • If I could give more than 5 stars I absolutely would. I chose Peter and Susannah to shoot our engagement photos as well as our wedding day. My husband and I are not the type that are constantly taking pictures together so thinking of doing a whole photo session was a little nerve racking. From the start we fell in love with Peter and Susannah. I spent forever going through photographer after photographer and looking through all their pictures... their photos were not like anyone else's I had seen. They capture genuine moments and expressions that you feel like you get to relive when you look at the photos. When I contacted them stating I was interesting in using them for wedding they set up a time to go have lunch with us and to get to know us. They are easy to talk with, friendly and you can tell they know what they are doing. Our engagement photo session was a blast! I never thought I would have so much fun taking pictures. For the wedding... just wow. I LOVE LOVE LOVE my photos. L... Read more

  • Love, love, love our photos from Peter and Susannah! They were so helpful in thinking through the little details of the day as we planned our wedding from the opposite coast and exuded a calm, positive energy that helped us keep our cool the day-of. They were able to go from capturing our large family formals, to the pant-busting moves on the dance floor and really highlighted the moments we hold most dear. Thank you for all your thoughtful touches and the photos that we will cherish for a life time!

  • Holy smokes!!! Can we give them a 10 out of 5 star rating?! As I'm sure many of you can relate, the idea of being the subject of thousands of photos was extremely daunting for my husband and I. Enter Peter and Susannah. These two are nothing short of amazing! Peter and Susannah are not only extremely talented photographers, they each possess an adventurous spirit that is utterly contagious. I mean who else is climbing over boulders while 8 and a half months pregnant in the Gorge then enthusiastically agrees to fly down to Mexico a few months later to a whirlwind of a wedding weekend? While I will let their amazing photos speak for itself, the experience of working with Peter and Susannah is one we will never forget. My husband and I both felt as if we were hanging out with lifelong friends that just happen to be snapping some pictures along the way, yet somehow the end result was an incredible collection of photos that truly captured the emotions of the day. There are no other photo... Read more

  • Peter and Susannah were a joy to work with. They were open and caring in our initial conversation about their services, and kept in touch with helpful ideas up to the wedding. They kept us genuinely smiling and laughing throughout our big day, and the moments they captured were the heart and soul of our day and the people we love. We love their style and personalities, and recommend them in a heartbeat! Worth every penny for the way their capture lifetime memories.

  • Not only did we get amazing photos of our wedding, super quickly and packaged pretty awesomely, working with Peter was a fun experience for everyone. Prep before the wedding was super thorough, which gave me huge peace of mind about how we'd get the pictures we were hoping for throughout our wedding day. On the day of, Peter was upbeat and quick, getting so many moments captured at different locations even while working solo (Susannah couldn't make it). He put up with the elements on our cold Alaskan winter wedding day, and took advantage of all the snow's magic despite how uncomfortable it must've been to be working outside for as long as he was. Despite the typical harried chaos of the day, he was patient and cheerful, helping us all feel comfortable being photographed and making it a lot more fun than I've ever experienced wedding pictures to be! Several of the bridal party mentioned to me how much fun he made a typically painful (unfortunate but true) part of the day, and I think ... Read more

  • There was over 3 ft of snow the day of our wedding! Everything got changed at the last minute, but Peter was prepared for everything! We wanted snowy, outdoor photos and he was extremely willing to put up with the 20 degree temperature. Peter's awesome, fun personality made us forget about the cold. Our pictures were absolutely breathtaking, and we get compliments all the time. We couldn't have asked for a better photographer and would definitely recommend Peter Mahar Photography!

    Thank you so much guys! You both were amazing in that cold too!

  • As soon as my husband and I met with Peter and his wife, I knew they were the ones I wanted to be my photographers. I have bad General anxiety, with them I never had an ounce of anxiety on my wedding day. Between the two, someone was always right there taking pictures.

  • My husband and I hired Peter and Susannah to photograph our wedding, and they were absolutely amazing. They were such a pleasure to work with, and the end results beautifully captured our special day. In the lead up to the wedding, Peter was easy to communicate with and made the planning process really effortless and streamlined for me. I also love that Peter doesn't have any of the hidden costs that a lot of photographers have where you get really basic service and everything extra is more so you don't really know what you'll end up paying. We also met up for a drink in Oregon city to all get to know each other a bit before the big event and it was so fun to hang out (and they suggested a really cool tap room to boot!). On the day of, Peter and Susannah arrived early and were ready to go. My husband who hates having photographs taken was put at ease by them, and they were able to capture us in our element. They were also excellent at graciously corralling stray family and f... Read more

  • Peter and Susannah were a great team and made us feel so special throughout this process. They were very attentive to our needs. My husband and I typically are very camera shy and don't know how to pose, they helped us through the whole process and made us feel like we knew what we were doing. They were able to work with our large group and each picture captured the emotion of the moment. The personal touches that they do only add to an already perfect team.
