Testimonies from Clients and Critics
"The entire staff at Village Properties has been impressed with Bill’s talent and how easy he is to work with. He has paid close attention to the finer details of his images in the way he stages and sets up the shots. It is exciting to be working with Bill Breneman Photography and to have his work proudly displayed on the Village Properties at Sunriver’s website."
~ Katie Ball, Marketing Manager, Village Properties at Sunriver
"Bill Breneman was a pleasure to work with for providing professional photography to our foodservice distribution center project in Portland, Oregon. Bill was organized, timely, and thorough, taking great care to ensure all requirements of the session were fulfilled. We are looking forward to working with him in the future."
~ Michele Loppnow, Executive Sales & Marketing Coordinator, ESI Constructors, Inc.
"Bill, we were THRILLED to have you as our featured author! Our crowd loved your pictures and slide show. We had SO many people interested in seeing you! Thank you for taking time off of work, driving to us all the way from Bend, and putting on a great presentation as part of our 'Power of the Pen' local author series. We really appreciated it!"
~ Anne Whitlock, Community Relations, Courtyard Fountains Retirement & Assisted Living
"Bill, thanks so much for your help at the home fire outreach event. You got some great pics! I like that you got some good background and volunteer shots as well as good documentation of the alarm installations and education component with families. We’ll be able to use many of them on the Red Cross's Volunteer Connection site, our website and other promotional items."
~ Paula Fasano Negele, Communications Director, American Red Cross, Cascade Region

"I am THOROUGHLY stunned and amazed. Your photos are mind-blowingly excellent. A coworker is getting married next month, and I know she was envious because as I showed her your work, she said, 'I wish I could change my photographer, but it's too late'. She spent four times as much on her photographer! I continued bragging about your website features which are mind blowing! I can order anything I want, in any size, even with a frame and matting! Plus my friends and family members can choose the photos they want to order. Her photographer didn't offer these services. You were able to capture moments and memories that I would have never seen as a busy bride. Through your lens I experienced my wedding in a way I couldn't have while the wedding was taking place. You were a complete joy to work with. You were so professional and sincere. You met with us twice at the venue before the wedding to go over lighting and give your input. I had 100% absolute trust in you. You saw and heard my vision even as it was developing. Immediately you felt the rhythm, rhyme and vibe we were embodying as a couple but also for our wedding experience. I am definitely hiring you again!" I can't thank you enough."
~ Melissa Ferro
"Thank you so much for the amazing engagement photo shoot. The pictures turned out fabulous. I can't wait to see them on a big canvas print! I appreciate what you did so much!"
~ Elizabeth Friton
"I was immediately impressed with Bill's credentials and demeanor. On the job Bill proved to be very organized, pleasant and willing to go the extra mile to get things done. He has impressed me personally as well as professionally, possessing wisdom well beyond his years. His positive and upbeat personality is a welcome reprieve."
~ Cheryl Weinert-Fry
"Thank you again for bringing us your pictures of the 3-alarm house fire. We appreciate it. Several of your pictures were used in many of our newscasts throughout the weekend, and will likely be used again. Your pictures will also be featured on our website with a courtesy to you."
~ Andrew Padula, Reporter/Assignment Editor, KPTV Fox 12 Oregon
"As a massage therapist, what I bring into my space and share with my clients is very important to me. When I found what Bill had captured through his camera on the internet, I became committed to bringing his artistic gift into my clinic. What made my experience even sweeter, was having Bill come and visit me personally, to discuss my needs and to see what photos and layouts would work best for my space. Bill's personal touch as both an artist and an individual has been greatly appreciated, and I look forward to bringing more of his artistic talent into my clinic. Thank you for being so generous with your time!"
~ Luna Pereira, Owner, Esencia Bodywork LLC, Portland, OR
"If a photograph tells a story, and a picture is worth a thousand words, then Bill Breneman's publication, 'Oregon Journeys', is a photographic essay that merits more than an honorable mention in a list of must-reads."
~ Tammy Asnicar, Rouge River Press, Rouge River, OR

~ Alison Hart, CEO, Gresham Area Chamber of Commerce
