Exceptional work! Thank you so much for the great photoshoot. Working with students can be worse than herding cats but you were able to get all the shots we needed in the allotted timeframe. The photos came out better than we hoped for!

You and your staff provided friendly, easy-to-work-attitudes, professional, efficient, and expert services for our Christmas Party. For the record, I have heard nothing but positive comments concerning your quality of work and attention to detail. I understand our President, was extremely happy with your services and has already given the order to hire New Orleans Event Photography for our party next year!!

Associate Producer, Zoom.7

“I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for your wonderful work at our Mary Kay leadership conference. The Portrait Gallery was the perfect choice for our event. The photographs were fine, looks great, and were a huge hit! I especially appreciated how efficiently you operated each station. Your organization and professionalism were outstanding. I feel very fortunate to have worked with such a wonderful group of people.”

Brenna Glaeser

Team Member Loyalty Manager Hilton New Orleans Riverside

“The Portrait Gallery is a pleasure to work with for our employee events & functions. Their friendly, professional staff is always early to prepare for the set-up of events. They work quickly to ensure that everyone is able to get a picture, but their speed of service does not affect the quality of their work. The Portrait Gallery consistently delivers a great product with a friendly staff. I would highly recommend using them for your next event or function.” 

Rebecca Altobelli

Technical Assistant Chevron Oronite Company LLC

"We have received excellent service from the Portrait Gallery. We have used them for many years for our Holiday Party pictures that are given as souvenirs to the party attendees. The employees are always excited to get their picture taken in their holiday outfits." In fact, our sister company has started using their services for their party as well. 

You can depend on The Portrait Gallery to be on time, professional and specialists in their craft. We know that we can depend on The Portrait Gallery." 

Bonnie C

"The Portrait Gallery has been the photographer of choice at several of our reoccurring company events for many years. Their customer service is outstanding. Yvette, Wade and the staff at The Portrait Gallery takes great pride in their work, and they pay specific attention to detail when it comes to their customer's desire. The finished product is always the best quality. Thank you for making so many of our events worry-free and giving us very fond memories to refer to."

Donna Malbrough

"I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Yvette and Wade of New Orleans Event Photography (or The Portrait Gallery). They are extremely creative, accommodating and professional, as well as really nice people. Their services have always made my job easier and my event more special. A photo is a perfect memory of a special event and Wade and Yvette help capture and preserve that memory for our honored guests." 

Gary D. Myers

Director of Public Relations New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary

“Wade and Yvette Ponthier have provided photography for New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary graduations for more than six years. I am impressed with their attention to detail and great customer service skills. Not only do they deliver top quality photography, they are a joy to work with. I value the relationship we have established with the Ponthiers and The Portrait Gallery.”

Hope J. Gibbs

“When managing projects from a distance, I need to have confidence in my vendors. The Portrait Gallery was recommended to me― and I wasn't disappointed. They provided us with the quality photos we needed to make the project come together.”

Linda Nosko

UniGroup Marketing

“We can't thank you enough for helping make our booth one of the "must see" exhibits at the trade show! Attendance at this show was down slightly from last year but we managed to capture just as many leads. That says a lot about how easy it was to bring folks in with such a great (photography) promotion! Working with you and Katie was such a pleasure. We loved that you worked with us as a team and made everything fun and memorable for our customers.”

Jennifer Topolski


“I just wanted to drop a note to say thank you to you and your staff for the wonderful photographs that you provided at our event.

We loved your professionalism and are looking forward to working with you again in the future!”
