Reviews on working with Deja View Photography
"she knew how to put us at ease"
"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.

"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"
"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
"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.
"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"
"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.
