Reviews on working with Deja View Photography


"she knew how to put us at ease"

Deja was wonderful to work with. She enjoys what she does and it shows in her work. We had our photos taken outside at our home. Deja scheduled our appointment so the natural light would be at its best during our session. When we began she knew how to put us at ease and our photos turned out natural, not stiff. In addition to my husband and me, she took photos of our dog and cat too. She really captured their personalities. Our photos are better than we hoped they would be. We would definitely work with her again! Zoe L.


"I turned to the only person I knew who could deliver the photo I needed"

My 50th college reunion is coming up and I needed a photo that made me look just right for the reunion book. I turned to the only person I knew who could deliver the photo I needed - Deja Webster. She expertly and gently guided me through the photo session. At the time in November, I told her. "This experience has been an early Christmas gift!" The result was one of the best photos of me ever taken. Thank you. Peggy W. 


"Deja radiates qualities that make you at ease"

In my professional career, I search for a gifted professionals who offer their very BEST at all times. Deja radiates qualities that make you at ease, comfortable, smiling, and eager to please as she does the same with you. Her photographic skills are top-tier! Made my busy day slow down a bit, with an added smile, while making a great friend in the process. Paul C.


"she made the whole process a breeze" "patient, highly skilled and fun to work with"

Deja is an incredibly talented and compassionate photographer. She really pours her heart and soul into her work. I had Deja take professional photos. She was patient, highly skilled and fun to work with. She made the whole process a breeze! We had 2 photo sessions; 1 in her studio and another outside, carefully scheduled to capture the best lighting. My photos were beautiful and the experience was amazing. Nancy O.


"went the extra mile" 

We had a delightful time with Deja this Christmas. She took family photos of all 20 of us, and was careful, considerate, and wonderfully professional.  I was so impressed that she went the extra mile to see our home before the photo session to know where she wanted to take photos. On the day of the photos, she arrived knowing everyone's name and had even made the effort to learn what she could about each person. Everyone commented on how much fun the session was.  She worked beautifully with our little ones as well. Couldn't be happier! Nancy


"she definitely delivered!!" "delight to work with!!"

My husband and I took a trip to Washington State last week and had an amazing time! One of the best parts about our trip was meeting and being photographed by Deja!! She was so incredibly personable when I first spoke with her on the phone (and that was maybe two weeks before our scheduled trip)! She knew exactly what I wanted and she definitely delivered!! She was very happy to do it and was a delight to work with!! When we actually met Deja, on the day of our shoot, she said it best when she said it felt like we had known each other forever! Nothing was awkward and she turned out with some really wonderful photos of our wedding!!! On top of being a super-talented photographer, she also gave us a fun little tour of her town Port Townsend! She was fun to hang out with and gave us great tips on where to eat and what to see!! It was a pleasure Deja, and I hope we meet again!!  Robin



"she helped us create a unique experience that our daughter will always remember"


We've worked with Deja for all our daughter's high school senior photos. Initially, we used her services to take a student photo, but then we had a fantastic opportunity to work with her for a senior photo shoot. She not only worked with us, but she helped us create a unique experience that our daughter will always remember. With having such a great experience we came back and asked Deja to take our daughter's graduation photo with her cap and gown. Overall we feel like we've made a friend in working with Deja. We can't say enough good things about Deja, and how grateful we are to have found her.


"photos look 'natural' not posed or forced"

I appreciate Deja's approach for keeping it real and bringing ease to the session. The photos look 'natural' not posed or forced. I loved having the session out of the studio, too. Fun to take photos around Port Townsend where the background adds interest without being a distraction. Highly recommend. Kristina M.



"captured our time together for many lasting memories"

Our family traveled into Port Townsend to celebrate my in-laws 60th Wedding Anniversary. Deja was wonderful in working with our family. She captured our time together for many lasting memories. Jennifer


"she went above and beyond"

My husband and I hired Deja to photograph our grandchildren while we were visiting Port Townsend. I asked that she take candid photos while the children played. If you have ever participated in a photo session with toddlers, you know that tears and fits are often included! Not so, with Deja! We had a splendid day following the kids to the pirate ship, beach and playground while Deja took some amazing shots! She went above and beyond and extended our session to another location after we took a lunch break! It was like spending the day with an old friend and the results were fabulous! I highly recommend Deja View Photography for your family photo needs! Abban



"if she could wrangle our family and get the awesome picture we got you better believe she has talent"

My family and I had our pictures taken at Deja View Photo Studio two years ago for Christmas and she made it such a nice experience. We had a four-year-old that wanted to do everything except get her picture taken and Deja was so good with her that not a shot was wasted. I did not know much about Deja View Photography Studio until my daughter-in-law found her while searching for a studio to get our family photo. I sensed having watched all the work she does for the animal shelter and continuing to view the picture she posts daily. The pictures she takes are wonderful and if she could wrangle our family and get the awesome picture we got you better believe she has talent. Very comfortable experience! Thank you Deja.

"Deja does her research!" "She captured my daughter's true essence"

I first met Deja in 2014 at a Wedding Expo in Port Townsend where she and fellow photographer, Kay, had a booth.  I was immediately drawn to their warm personalities, but also to their obvious love for their art.  I decided right then and there to book Deja View Photography for my daughter's Quinceañera the following year.

Deja does her research!  She learned about the cultural event, attended a rehearsal for the traditional dances and visited our church to ensure religious boundaries were honored. She and Kay checked out the lighting and placement in both the church and fiesta venues. Because of all this preparation, they, and the additional photographer, were able to be in the right spots for the various special moments. 

But planning and preparation are not all that make Deja special.  She takes the time to really get to know her subject.  In our case, we needed a picture beforehand for the invitations.  I thought a studio session would work and the portraits were quite beautiful, but Deja sensed something else in my, then, 14-year-old and suggested going outside. The results were fantastic!  She captured her true essence and the two of them became so close that when we went back for the prints, they went outside again for more photographic fun!  

Deja further excels at her craft in the countless hours she spends in post-event production at her studio. Her openness to client requests and her attention to detail ensured the final product will be loved.  We have a gorgeous Quinceañera album and now, a year later, beautiful memories of my daughter's Confirmation as well. With Senior Portraits almost two years away, I'm searching for an "excuse" to fill in the gap! Karen B. 


"Deja did a fantastic job from start to finish"

If you have other things to worry about than your photographer, choose Deja....she will take care and plan for everything. A huge weight was lifted.

Deja did a fantastic job from start to finish. We initially did our engagement pictures, they came out so well....we decided to go all out with the wedding. She was well prepared, didn't leave out any detail, and got all the pictures we requested as well as some beautiful surprises. Her timing was perfect, she'd gone out to the venue the weekend before to ensure the shadows wouldn't affect the pictures.

We also purchased the wedding album from her, very well done....definitely would recommend that. Another bonus that Deja brings to the table, she has a lot of connections in the area. She recommended our florist and cake vendors as well. The three of them working together was a great decision. Rob
