Fritz and his team were a joy to work with during our engagement session and wedding day. Fritz has an eye for story telling and capturing amazing pictures and making people look their best. He is an artist. I can’t recommend them enough not only for weddings but any photography need. We are definitely happy and satisfied clients for life. ~Rex and Kirtana held their wedding at the Victorian Belle in Portland
My (now) wife and I are fairly relaxed people, and when it came time for our wedding, we wanted a photographer with similar composure. Fritz and team were not only down-to-earth, they were courteous and capable professionals that took beautiful photos without being intrusive or high-maintenance in any way. We were in AWE when we received the photos! They were absolutely stunning. We never felt stressed or rushed when they were around( even though weddings can be stressful!). We will most definitely be contacting Fritz again for our next photography sessions! ~Henry & Kate held their wedding at The Marshall House in Vancouver and Enso Winery in Portland
Perfection! This is the best way to describe what was captured on our wedding day! My Husband and I spoke on the phone a number of times with Portland wedding photographers FritzPhoto, and expressed all of our wants for the big day. We saw everything we asked for and more! What a FUN, PROFESSIONAL and RELAXING experience we had with Fritz and his team. We get comments all the time from folks that we have the BEST wedding photos they have ever seen! It was so great to work directly with our photographer and not a receptionist or assistant. He made us feel really special and important and that is just something we will never forget. Thank You! ~Katie & Justin’s destination wedding was at Shore Lodge in McCall, Idaho
Fritz Photography was so wonderful to work with for our wedding reception. With them, we had complete confidence that we’d ‘get the shot’ – you know, the perfect-for-framing image that you see in your mind while you’re planning this beautiful, once-in-a-lifetime event. Actually, we got more than just the perfect shot – we got hundreds of perfect shots. They honestly captured the essence of our evening in a way that perfectly mirrored our style and tone. Putting together our album was a dream come true thanks to the Fritz Photography team, and we couldn’t be happier. Believe us when we say that you want to trust your wedding to them – they just get it. ~Maryn & Jason, wedding at Oregon Golf Club
From the very beginning, simply looking at their website, Fritz Photography became our top choice of photographer in the Portland area for our wedding needs. When we initially met for a consultation, there was no doubt they would get our business- from the quality of images, to a keen eye for capturing scenes, to a variety of shots at any venue- the sample albums were phenomenal. We initially hired them for engagement and wedding photos, but when we decided to elope on a whim, they were able to shift on the fly and follow us one weekend to the coast. The proofs were amazing and turnaround was about a week, fully edited. They complied with all our wishes, were polite, and made our memories indelible and perfect. Fritz Photography was very professional in doing business with us, but most importantly, they are incredibly talented artists. We recommend them without any reservations and will use their services again. ~Julie & Mark, married in Cannon Beach, Oregon
After I got engaged, I looked at hundreds of wedding photos and photographers in the Portland area, and FritzPhoto’s photos kept catching my eye. Eric & I certainly made the right decision! We had such a blast working with them during our engagement session as well as at the wedding. They had fabulous ideas and helped to loosen everyone up and to make us laugh. They truly have an eye for capturing amazing moments! I spent so much time on the “little things” to make our wedding special and they had such an eye for detail. With their creativity, they captured every detail that I had worked so hard to accomplish and brought them to life. The coffee table album they created for us is absolutely gorgeous; we have had so many compliments – people keep telling us that our photos look like they have come right out of a bridal magazine. You have created lasting memories for us to cherish throughout our lives together and for that we will be forever grateful! ~Megan & Eric, married at the Abernethy Center Abigail’s Garden
When we first got engaged, we were so excited about our future together, yet overwhelmed with choices that needed to be made regarding ceremony and reception details. Although we had different opinions on the small details (napkins, flowers, etc), we were very certain that our photographer needed to be our number one priority; after all, when the wedding is over, all you have are the memories, captured on film!
We searched for months for a photographer that fit our style, and budget. A good friend told us about FritzPhoto, and after viewing their online portfolio, we were sold!
Fritz made us both feel so calm and relaxed prior to the ceremony, we never felt stressed, or pressed for time. we found ourselves laughing, and simply enjoying our last few moments together, prior to the ceremony.
Fritz captured EVERYTHING at the reception..we were unaware of most of the photos he took, and never felt like we had to stop the fun, to pose for photos. We have so many beautiful candid shots, mixed with pre-ceremony “formal” photos. Best of all, we received our online album just days after the ceremony!
Choosing FritzPhoto was the best choice we made–besides the choice to marry each other. ~Sarah & Justin Scharf, wedding at McMenamins
When my husband and I were planning our wedding, I told him one of the most important things to me is having beautiful wedding pictures that we can look back on to remember our special day. My husband is someone who does not typically enjoy having his picture taken and a wedding photographer was not on his priority list. Knowing how much professional pictures meant to me, he decided to let me have full control over picking the photographer so I could have my beautiful pictures.
When looking for a photographer, I not only wanted someone who took beautiful and artistic photos, but I wanted a photographer that had already shot at our venue so they were familiar with the location. Fritz Photography was the first photographer on the preferred vendor list that our venue provided, so I decided to start there. After meeting with Fritz for the first time and seeing his amazing photography, I knew I had found my photographer. He was friendly and very professional. I knew my husband would feel comfortable around him too.
When it came to our wedding day, Fritz and his assistant were amazing. They knew the best locations to take pictures and helped direct my husband and I who had no idea how to pose for pictures. They made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera and we had a lot of laughs during the process. We felt like Fritz was one of our wedding guests rather than a vendor we hired. Even a couple of our guests commented on how much they liked Fritz and could tell he was a photographer that knew what he was doing. We could not have been happier with how our wedding pictures turned out. They are absolutely gorgeous and captured our wedding day perfectly and we have received many complements on them. My husband and I are quick to recommend Fritz Photography to anyone looking for a photographer who takes beautiful and artistic pictures that also makes you feel at ease in front of the camera. ~Kristina & Ryan, wedding at Youngberg Hill Vineyard
We had amazing time photographing with Fritz. His eye for details, creativeness, talent, and natural gift for studying people’s character and than transforming it into art is vast and incredible, words cannot do his photography justice! He is a MASTER at what he does!! ~Lana
Fritz took time to listen to both of us in our vision for the shoot. He made it fun, furthermore his eye for detail made it educational for me. He strives for excellence 100%, yet is able to make the experience personal. There is no words to describe his art like creations. I would LOVE to work with him again. ~Mirna, photographed at McMenamin’s Edgefield
Fritz has a buoyant personality that makes people feel at ease and allow their most authentic self to be present. This combined with his individual and artistic voice as a photographer gives way to unique images that capture the essence and moods of the people he photographs. ~Elizabeth, senior portraits photographed in Portland
We are so happy that we chose FritzPhoto for our wedding day! He captured tons of amazing shots, especially candid moments that seemed small, but became stunning images. Fritz was also easy to work with, making clients who are not used to having their picture taken feel at ease. We highly recommend FritzPhoto for any special occasion! ~Sarah & John, married at the Oregon Golf Club

But most of all, we value the praise of our customers:
“We live in New York City, but we held the wedding at Edgefield because we have a lot of family in the area. As a result, I did a lot of my research and planning online. I was immediately intrigued when I came across the Fritz Photo website. Their work really captures the personal touches and the feeling of the couple, the guests and the day, instead of featuring their most photogenic clients in bridal magazine poses. It was exactly what I was looking for.
“When the big day came, my high expectations were exceeded. Fritz arrived on the scene and we were immediately put at ease by his combination of professionalism and warm personality. In addition to covering the ceremony and reception, he also had a great grasp of the Edgefield grounds and was able to take us to some out of the way spots for some really unique photos. My favorite contribution was not photography related at all. When the time came, we realized we had no idea how to properly cut the cake and he went beyond the call of duty and talked us through the process.
“I would highly recommend choosing Fritz Photography to anyone seeking an excellent wedding photographer and a great experience.”
Gretchen & Scott’s wedding was held at McMenamin’s Edgefield
“Thank you SO much for the care, professionalism, and artistry you put in to every aspect of your work on our wedding. Not only are your photos our favorite keepsake of the event, you and Gretchen were so warm and genuine that it felt like having 2 more friends or family members at the wedding rather than another vendor.”
Julianna and Aaron held their wedding at McMenamin’s Edgefield
“Thank you a million times for the beautiful wedding photos. They turned out better than we could ever imagine! We had a great time working with you and sharing our special day. I don’t think you realize how easy you make it for the people you are photographing to be themselves. You have an amazing gift and we are so happy to have found you. You did an amazing job and we can’t thank you enough. We look forward to seeing the book and you will definitely be seeing us in the future.”
Pam and Scott had their wedding at Youngberg Hill Vineyards in Yamhill County, Oregon
“I scoured New York City for a photographer that had the same editorial style that my friend had gotten for her wedding. After my 15th call I was ready to throw in the towel when my husband suggested I see if my friend’s photographer travelled for weddings. How lucky I was when he said he did. The shots were everything I had hoped they would be. Fritz couldn’t have been easier to work with, and fast!! He had my pictures posted online 3 days after the wedding. I just wish he’d move to New York City now!”
Brooke and Ryan held their wedding at the Angel Orensanz Foundation in Manhattan, New York City

Jenifer, on The Knot, wedding at Bridal Veil Lakes in the Columbia River Gorge
“WOW! What can we say except…WOW! You must be so proud of your work. We certainly are! You are such an artist and we cannot thank you enough for being a part of our day. We are both overjoyed with the amazing photos that you took of us, our families and friends. What a treat. We cannot stop beaming over them! There were so many times we looked at each other and said “did you know he was taking photos then?” A true testament to your ability. The slide show you put together expresses our personalities and the fun that we had exactly; right down to the music you selected. You really nailed it right on the head. For those that were unable to join us, it is a great way to share the full story. We would recommend you to anyone and everyone. These are not just photos, they are works of art and we can’t wait to share them and enjoy them over and over again!”

Stephanie and Robert, married on the Portland Spirit, on the Willamette River
“Thank you so much for all of your hard work on Saturday. You were both so easy to work with and I never felt uncomfortable with either one of you. I even woke up on Sunday wondering where you were? I think you should just follow me around for the rest of my life and capture every moment – all while making sure my chin is tilted just right!”
Allison and Jack had their wedding at Riverplace Hotel, Portland

“I just got through going through the prints of my daughter’s wedding AGAIN! They are such a perfect reflection of a perfect day…. Your photos captured many of the joyful, spontaneous moments that made Jennifer and Eric’s day so special and unique. Thank you for leaving us with a wonderful memory of one of the happiest days in our family’s history. Sincere thanks, Doris Robinson”
“You did a fantastic job on everything: the pictures, communicating with families, making it easy for us. It was impossible to pick out pictures for the album because every single one was so good. Thank you so much for so eloquently capturing the memories of this very special event!”
Marta and Peter, married in Beaverton, Oregon at Beaverton Foursquare Church
“Just wanted to send you a note because I can’t stop watching the loop of pics you took of Cale! You are amazing. I had no idea how emotional it would be to see the finished product you created of Cale – it so captures the magic of our son’s spirit. The pride in his eyes when he’s holding his soccer medals…. the sparkle in his eyes under the Christmas Tree…. the refection of his face in the window pane all remind me how magical our lives are right now. The years are so fleeting and soon he will be a young man – and then a grown man. I am so lucky to be his mother and so grateful to you for capturing that powerful yet intangible feeling on film. You are a master of your craft. When I am an old woman I will still be savoring each and every one of these photos. You are the closest thing to “time in a bottle” I have ever found. Let us never lose you! Can we get on your calendar for the same time next year?” -Cale’s mom on their family portraits
“Your interaction at the wedding was comfortable and refreshing. The coverage of our day is beautiful. Thank you for working with us so much and for going the extra mile with all you do–we are forever grateful.”
Tyler and Heather, married at The Academy in Vancouver, Washington
