Pam has photographed our family since my kiddos were teeny tiny! She has grown with us and I love that she's been with us all these years! Pam has natural talent that shows through in her work. She knows how to show the true you in her photos. There's no one better!

Mia ~ Family Portrait Sessions

Pam is the best of the best. She has been photographing our family for the past 2 1/2 years. From our engagement session, boudoir session, wedding, and now family photographs she knows us and gets us. She is part of our family. The quality of Pam's photos and her natural style are what set her apart. There is no formal posing and everything is relaxed. For someone who is not comfortable in front of the camera, she makes you comfortable. Her sessions are filled with laughter and dialogue and you do not even know she is taking pictures. When it comes time to view the finished product Pam sits down with you through Skype and you get to view the photos together. This added feature provides that extra personal touch! You get to talk about the photos, how you feel when you look at them, and see what products she has available - because that is the MOST important thing, displaying these photos. I liken photos to being the only way to document memories and what good are memories if they are sitting on a hard drive somewhere. Being able to display these works of art is what I love the most. Pam's work is addicting. Once you start using her to document you and your family's life you will never be able to find another photographer that matches her skill, style, and personality. To put it simply - we love Pam and will use her for all of our photos from now until eternity. (She also loves black and white photography which I LOVE - pretty sure I only picked black and white photos from our latest session with her)!!!

Alison & Andy ~ Boudoir Session, Wedding Celebration, & Family Portraits

Pam is an extraordinary talent, her pictures are proof. She takes the time to get to know you beforehand, being photographed was like meeting and old friend, comfortable, natural and enjoyable. Her creativity and excitement as the camera was clicking was infectious. It was an absolutely wonderful journey from start to finish. No occasion necessary, no wedding, baby, just me and the camera and I would have never expected to say that at 41 years of age I just had the best photograph taken of myself, but it’s true, thanks to Pam.

Jenn ~ Women’s Portrait Session

Pam did an amazing job photographing our wedding. We are so happy we chose her. She was super professional and responsive throughout the entire planning process. The day of she showed up early, and was a calming force as we were getting ready. She got some great shot. We challenged her with some large group shots, two feisty flower girls, and even my dog. She was super patient and got some great shots of even the hardest models. Pam immediately sent us some sneak peaks the very next day!!!! And we had all our photos within one week!!!!! Would highly recommend Pam!!!

Christina & Jeff ~ Wedding Celebration

I would highly highly highly recommend Pamela as your wedding photographer or a photographer for any event! She was so easy going, flexible, the pictures were gorgeous and even my guests commented about how great she was. Her pleasant disposition and go with the flow attitude really made for a perfect event and perfect pictures. She is AWESOME!!!!

Brenda & John ~ Wedding Celebration

Quick and painless senior portraits. But even better - it was fun! Pamela managed to take beautiful photos of my son and he acknowledged that "it was cool" and "that wasn't so bad". That is quite a compliment coming from an 18-year-old young man that was only getting the photos taken to make mom and grandmom happy! The happy and relaxed-looking casual photos are proof of it all! Thanks, Pamela! We will be back!

Tina ~ Senior Portraits

Not only does Pam have a beautiful backdrop for pictures, she's a beautiful person! She's tons of fun, got great shots fast, and was relaxed the entire time! Can't wait for our next shoot!

Kristen ~ Family Portrait Sessions

Pam has taken our family portraits for the past three years and we couldn't t be happier with them or with her. She makes you feel at ease and really captures those candid moments. She is the best and we highly recommend her to anyone looking for some great photos.

Erica ~ Family Portrait Sessions

Pam did my son's senior portrait session yesterday and I couldn't be happier with the results! She was so easy to work with, professional, efficient and made the entire thing fun...So many great shots to choose from! I can highly recommend her!

Kim ~ Senior Portraits

Pam is an awesome photographer - she generously allowed us to use her own farm for our engagement shoot. The pictures came back very quickly, came out great, and she took so many that it was hard to choose the best ones. She made us feel relaxed and suggested good poses for us. We also used her for our wedding and got a ton of compliments on our photos! She arrived on time, was super easy to work with, and our pictures came back within a week. Pam is the best!

Nicole & Phil ~ Engagement Session & Wedding Celebration

We had such a wonderful time during our session with Pam! We were feeling a little awkward and uncomfortable prior to the shoot but Pam made us feel comfortable and we got some really great photos because of it! Thank you Pam for going above and beyond to make sure our experience was perfect. We can’t wait for another session with you in the future!!

Lindsey ~ Couple’s Session

Pam is amazing! She makes everyone feel at ease...and is able to really capture the joy that everyone is feeling!  Thank you Pam for being you and capturing memories forever

Christine ~ Wedding Celebration

Pam was wonderful to work with- very friendly and professional. She helped me to feel at ease and was very responsive to my communications before and after my session. The finished product was beautiful. I highly recommend Pamela Harvey Photography.

Chrissy ~ Boudoir Session

Pam was such a fantastic person to work with. We were thrilled at her expertise, professionalism, and ability to always be in communication with us. She dealt with all of the personalities of our wedding party, griends, and family so well! She was extremely organized, and made sure that we were happy with every step. Our pictures capture all of the momemts that we would want, posed and natural. We definitely recommend her 🙂

Meghan ~ Wedding Celebration

Pam was a wonderful photographer with which to work. She was very flexible the morning of our engagement shoot and turned a foggy morning at Rocks State Park into a beautiful photo opportunity. We had never taken professional photos before, and it can be a little awkward kissing in front of a camera, but Pam made us feel at ease and we really had fun with it! She was extremely speedy in processing the photos and returning them to us. We've gotten lots of compliments on the amazing shots she took. We are very happy with our engagement photos, thanks to Pamela Harvey's beautiful photography!

Erin & Jason ~ Engagement Session

Love, love, love Pam and her work, she makes the entire experience fun and flexible. She has awesome ideas and seeks to please her clients. We are so pleased with all of our photos!

Patti ~ Senior Portraits

Pam was ABSOLUTELY wonderful! She was very responsive through all of our communication and very open to any ideas we had. She was always right on time and captured simply fabulous photos. She is able to capture a moment and a feeling, not just a pose. Somehow everyone looked fabulous in every picture! Her pricing is also very reasonable for what you receive. I also used Pam for a boudoir photo shoot prior to the wedding. She was extremely professional and managed to make this awkward girl look and feel great! I would absolutely recommend Pam to anyone looking for a photographer for any occasion! We live in Pittsburgh and I wish she was closer so I could recommend her locally as well!

Melissa & Ryan ~ Boudoir Session & Wedding Celebration

Did a boudoir shoot with Pam and absolutely loved the experience. She was professional and made me feel at ease. Best gift I ever gave to my hubby!

Tressa ~ Boudoir Session

Pam did a wonderful job photographing our wedding, from the engagement photos, to the wedding day to the beautiful album we just received! She worked with our schedule and drove to multiple places to get all the photographs we wanted! We also received our photos very quickly after the wedding, and they were wonderful!!! We would definitely recommend Pam!!

Alex & Gary ~ Engagement Session & Wedding Celebration

Pam did an absolute amazing job! My husband and I would recommend her 100%. She is truly caring and a pleasure to work with. She did a great job capturing our special day and we are grateful! Thanks Pam! You rock!

Aimee & Ian ~ Wedding Celebration

Pamela photographed our wedding in 2013 and we keep going back. We just finished our 4th session (fall photos) with her and she has been an absolute joy to work with every single time! So incredibly sweet, fun, and accommodating. She genuinely loves what she does and it shows.

Tammi ~ Wedding Celebration & Family Portraits

Pam was extremely professional and made sure that she gave us everything that we wanted for our wedding photos. She was very attentive and got amazing shots without being obtrusive. Pam was very responsive and flexible, and gave us even more shots than we expected. We got great quality photographs at a reasonable price, and excellent service as well. I would definitely recommend Pamela Harvey Photography to my friends and family.

Alison & Jefferson ~ Wedding Celebration

We are so happy that we were able to work with Pamela for our wedding. She was very open to my ideas and had a lot of ideas of her own that really helped the night go smoothly. She was cheerful and upbeat and blended in well with the crowd. After the wedding, we were nervous in wondering if she captured all of the important moments. Not a problem! She got EVERYTHING and the photos are absolutely STUNNING! Really, it was four months ago and we can't stop looking at them! She definitely has an eye for the moment. Thanks for everything, Pamela!

Chad & Beril ~ Wedding Celebration

Pam was amazing!!!! We could not have been happier. She was fun to have around and we didn't even focus on the fact she was taking pictures. Most of our shots are candid moments that help us to realize how wonderful our day really was. It poured on our wedding but Pam made the situation fun. As soon as the sun broke we took as many photos as we could. They all turned out beautiful! I strongly recommend her!

Shannon & Doug ~ Wedding Celebration

Pam is an excellent photographer! She knows how to capture every moment of your special day, from getting ready, to the ceremony, to intimate couples pictures, to the party. She is so personable and easy to work with that you forget she is even capturing the most important day of your life. She does not stage any pictures, rather she just captures the moment for what it is! I highly recommend Pam to photograph your wedding!!!

Meghan ~ Wedding Celebration

We couldn't have been happier with our choice to hire Pam as our wedding photographer. She is extremely friendly and warm, and made us and our entire wedding party feel comfortable in front of the camera. She had creative ideas for shots which we really enjoyed- people are still complimenting me on our wedding photos, over a year later! All of her photos were very high quality, in focus, well situated, and I think she made us all look spectacular- she has a gift for capturing the moment. She is so easy to work with and we got our prints (which were included in the price, another bonus) in record time. I can't say enough good things about Pam and she was a wonderful person to share our wedding day with.

Heather ~ Wedding Celebration

Pamela has photographed my wedding day, my first baby, & my last pregnancy. She is very professional, oozes creativity, is easy & fun to work with, great with kids, arrives fully prepared, & gives fantastic results. Her photographs are priceless & are true treasures.

Amanda ~ Wedding Celebration & Family Portraits

Pam was extremely professional and made sure that she gave us everything that we wanted for our wedding photos. She was very attentive and got amazing shots without being obtrusive. Pam was very responsive and flexible, and gave us even more shots than we expected. We got great quality photographs at a reasonable price, and excellent service as well.

Alison & Jefferson ~ Wedding Celebration

Pam shot our big day & it was such a wonderful experience. She made everyone feel so comfortable & was a blast to work with! The pictures turned our beautifully & she captured all aspects of our special day! We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer & we are so happy with our pictures that we will cherish for a lifetime!

Beth & Dave ~ Wedding Celebration

Pam did an amazing job photographing our wedding! She fit right into our special day and helped us keep on track with our wedding timeline while capturing all of the photos we requested and many more! She was very professional and was able to manage the many personalities that all families have. She is passionate about her photography and she gets your beautiful final images back to you quickly so you can relive your event over and over again! (She also does an amazing job with boudoir photography, which makes a great wedding gift for your spouse.)

Kara & Andrew ~ Wedding Celebration

When I decided to move to New York City to pursue acting, I asked Pam to take some head shots for me & they were amazing. Not only were they great photos, but the really captured my personality. Pam makes you feel so comfortable in front of the camera & that relaxed atmosphere makes for a tremendous project! I have been blessed to be a working actor for the past 5 years and the face that introduced me into my career is the head shot that Pam shot of me. I have also referred several of my friends to Pam for their weddings and they have ALL been VERY happy with the product & the memories of their special days. Pam has a unique eye for capturing the special moments in ways no other photographer can!

Matt ~ Modeling Head Shots

Thank you so much, Pam!!! Nobody in my family has ever had a photographer at their wedding. It’s going to be so great looking at pictures from our special day. Your ideas & creativity have been great. Will & I think very highly of you. It’s been a wonderful experience & you’ve been such a delight. It’s been a pleasure working with you & hope to again? Can we say baby pictures?

Collette & Will ~ Wedding Celebration

Pam photographed our daughter’s wedding four years ago & we still love reliving the time by browsing through the images. Pam’s pictures are sensitive, creative, & timeless. Our daughter & I have favorites, of course, but there are so many beautiful images that we never tire of looking at them?We are also planning to have her photograph our first grandchild in the near future. You can’t miss when you have Pam photograph that special event in your life.

Eve ~ Mother of the Bride

Pam's professionalism, dedication, enthusiasm and passion for her work is unquestionable! From the time she began working with us as we were planning our wedding, through the ceremony and reception, as well as in the days, weeks, and months to follow as we took our time selecting the photos, Pam was amazing! . Through her photos she captured the story of our love, intimacy, friends, and family.  ~ David Pam's work ethic, professionalism, passion, dedication and details to her work is what make her the amazing photographer that she is. I couldn't imagine somebody else taking our wedding pictures! On Our wedding day Pam was able to capture moments that were so uniquely beautiful and special to us. Pam has a way of bringing out the natural beauty of people through her lens and captures each moment of the occasion beyond expectations. We can't thank you enough! Best Photographer ever!!!!!!!  ~ Victor

David & Victor ~ Same Sex Engagement Session & Wedding Celebration

Pam Harvey took portraits of our son & we had a wonderful experience. The session was very relaxed & natural and she was able to capture his true spirit. The prints- in both color & black and white- are beautiful. Pam is a talented photographer & she is a pleasure to work with.

Kate & Mike ~ Family Portraits

Pam photographed our wedding on June 2, 2007 & we could not be happier with her work. She was professional, efficient, & photographed the event exactly as we’d envisioned. She is truly a talented artist, with many years of experience. Pam suggested shots that neither my husband nor I had thought of & many of these turned out to be our favorite photographs of the day! She designed the most GORGEOUS wedding announcement using one of our photographs & we sent out to our friends & family. Pam also designed a beautiful album for our wedding photographs that tells the story of our magical day- it is exactly what we asked for. Pam’s prices are very reasonable & her attention to detail is a rare gem. She puts the client first & truly understands the meaning of “customer service”. I recommend Pam’s services whole-heartedly.

Holly & Jason ~ Wedding Celebration

Scott & I want to thank you so much for doing such a wonderful job photographing our wedding! You were so easy to work with & professional right from the start. People were commenting on how inconspicuous, creative, & fun you were! The pictures are beautiful! Thank you so much, Pam. We wish you much success in your career…

Sarah & Scott ~ Wedding Celebration

Pam is a truly talented photographer & we have used her many times to help collect our family memories. She is thoughtful, patient, kind, creative, & fun. Pam is also very relaxed & takes the moments as they come- and with kids, things don’t always go as planned. Occasionally we have experienced a true meltdown during a photo shoot, yet Pam was able to capture quick moments of love & sweetness. Incredibly amazing.

Tavia ~ Family Portraits

It was such a pleasure to work with Pam. The wedding was a lot for my fiancé and I to handle, but when it came to photography – we couldn’t have made a better choice. The photos turned out amazing, everyone had nothing but rave reviews of her work – so much so that she had to post an online album so that everyone could review and purchase their favorite photos. I would recommend her to any and everyone.

Mike & Kenny ~ Same Sex Engagement Session & Wedding Celebration

We hired Pam to photograph our wedding & were thrilled with the results. She was warm, friendly, & enthusiastic throughout the entire day. Everyone enjoyed having her around & we forgot that she even had a camera! She is a very skilled photographer & has a trained eye for what will look good in the finished pictured. We are still getting compliments on our announcement photo, which she took looking down on us from a balcony. We have some of the best wedding pictures of any that I have seen & I give all the credit to Pam. We highly recommend her work & feel lucky to have found her!

Heather & John ~ Wedding Celebration

Pam is an artistic, passionate, & talented photographer whom I would recommend to anyone looking for beautiful photography. From our initial meeting, I was impressed with her enthusiasm. On the day of our wedding, she was great at capturing natural moments unobtrusively but was also able to step in & help coordinate more posed pictures. The photographs from our wedding perfectly capture the emotions of the day & are shots that I will cherish for a lifetime. Friends that were photographers themselves even commented that her pictures were “the winners” of the day. I have already recommended Pam to friends in the area & would definitely consider her for future photography for my family.

Lauren & John ~ Wedding Celebration

In the spirit of full disclosure, I need to let you know that Pam is my niece. With that said, the photo albums that she produced for both my daughter Kara, and my wife Lisa and I, were absolutely stunning! From the pre-wedding planning, through the entire wedding day, and culminating in the final product, the wedding albums, she was extremely helpful, and truly showed how much she enjoys her work. She did a great job of capturing this special day in our family’s life, in a manner which was totally professional, and which helped us deal with the many details that she has encountered many times, and which we would never have thought about, with this being our first wedding. I felt bad at first, worrying that she would not be able to relax and enjoy the wedding, along with the rest of the family, but I came to understand that she really enjoyed being Kara’s wedding photographer, and we loved having her do the photography! Pam is a wonderful person, that you can be assured will do everything she can to make your wedding day special, and that she will leave you with beautiful photographs to remember your special day.

Michael ~ Father of the Bride

Dear Pam, I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful job you did taking the photos of our wedding. We couldn’t be any happier with the outcome. Your pictures really captured the moments of the best day if our lives. You were professional & fun at the same time. Everyone comments on how great you were at being right there in the moment but not taking over the moment. You did a great job of getting all the shots we wanted you to take & then some. We were so happy that we found you for our wedding & will highly recommend you to anyone looking for a photographer in the years to come. Thank you so much!

Cindy & Marty ~ Wedding Celebration

I have had 3 different experiences with Pam. She has photographed my son, my sister & her family, & my last pregnancy. Her work is outstanding & better than most I have seen. Her work with children is done while they play & she captures moments of delight, concentration, joy, & innocence. In the settings she chooses to have the subjects pose, she photographs at angles that make the photographs truly unique. I am always in awe of her talent as a photographer. Her work is simply beautiful!

Valerie ~ Family Portraits

We are thrilled we made the decision to have Pam do a pregnancy photo shoot for our family. She was wonderful to work with, a perfect combination of professional & warm. We felt totally at ease & had a lot of fun. And, we absolutely loved the outcome. The photos are fantastic & will always be cherished.

Martha & Michael ~ Family Portraits

I have had the good fortune of working with Pam on two occasions. The first occasion was our daughter’s wedding. Choosing a wedding photographer is huge, in my book. We wanted everything captured, from start to finish- formal shots, candid shots, personal shots, fun shots, serious shots. We wanted the essence of the day captured. Most importantly, we wanted a photographer who understood that. After our initial meeting with Pam, we knew we had found that photographer. On the big day, Pam was calm and collected when I was most definitely not calm and collected. She somehow managed to be everywhere without appearing to be everywhere! We got shots that were formal, candid, personal, fun and serious. We got shots that captured the essence of the day! She had the images ready to view in just days. We were so glad that we purchased the disc because there was no way we would have been able to choose. The second occasion was a huge step out of my comfort zone. I did a boudoir session. At the age of 51, I took a huge leap of faith and had Pam shoot images that I never would have thought of having done! From the start, Pam was encouraging and patient. She gave suggestions and offered her opinion. Most importantly, Pam made me beautiful…she captured something I wasn’t sure still existed in this 51 year old body. It was a very liberating experience. I look forward to asking Pam to photograph me and my husband for our upcoming 30th anniversary. I can’t wait to have grandbabies on the way so she can do “belly” photos of my beautiful daughter. If I have any say when my son gets married, I hope she will grace us with her talents once again. What a great gift to know this fantastic photographer that I now can call a friend.

Paula ~ Wedding Celebration & Boudoir Session

Pamela was wonderful to work with. We found her to be easy going, professional, and reasonably priced for the quality of the photos. We were very pleased with the photos and they arrived quickly after we returned from the honeymoon. She met our expectations and would recommend her to others.

Tina & Andrew ~ Wedding Celebration

We are in love with you. 🙂 You were so attentive, lovely and so sharp witted. Having you there was a tremendous joy. Thank you for bringing such good energy to our wedding and for making us so calm too. I can’t wait to see the photos.  xoxo Excellent work! Pam was always 10 steps ahead of everyone at the wedding, making sure everyone looked their best with such finesse and calm. The photos turned out exactly how we wanted them, with every segment of the event captured beautifully. And what a great sense of humor! Trust me, you will want someone with an uplifting personality such as hers around in a day line this. We loved everything about her. Thanks, Pam. You were awesome!

Lorenzo & Adam ~ Same Sex Wedding Celebration

Pam was amazing! The pictures that she took really told the story of the day and captured everyone’s true spirit that day! I honestly can’t think of anything she could have done better!! Not only were we super pleased with Pam’s services, several of our guests commented on how pleasant and unobtrusive Pam was while doing her job. The only thing better than her pictures is her personality. She is very friendly and caring and you can tell that she really cares about what she is doing and the importance of it for her clients. I would use Pam Harvey Photography for any event that I want captured in pictures!! She and her photos are awesome!!

Lisa ~ Wedding Celebration

Thank you so much for your email and for sharing those sentiments with us! It was truly the most beautiful and memorable day of our lives and it’s so cool that it felt as special to other people as well. We were so overwhelmingly blessed with the love of all of our friends and family who were there, the gorgeous weather, and certainly not least talented, professional, and seamless services from all providers involved- including yourself, of course! We are so thankful that you were a part of it, from engagement pictures through this past weekend, and couldn’t be happier with the result. You were so easy to work with and have the ability to capture things with an artistic eye in a way that highlights the uniqueness of each moment. We just looked at the gorgeous pictures you emailed and are so excited to look on the Facebok page for more as well!!! We can’t thank you enough for capturing the most special day of our lives for us so beautifully, and can’t wait to relive the memories every time we look through these pictures. We keep saying that we wish it could’ve lasted 10 times as long as it did, but that we’re so happy to know we’ll at least have great pictures to remember it by!

Katy & Blake ~ Wedding Celebration

Pam is great to work with! She is extremely nice and comfortable to be around, even after only knowing her for a few hours! She did a great job working with us and providing us with exactly what we wanted. During our ceremony and reception I never noticed her around, but she got the best shots. She had a few sneak-peek pictures for us to see the day after our wedding. We had our CD with all of our pictures within 2 weeks of our wedding. Once we decided on what pictures we wanted in our album, she agreed to meet me at my work to give me the album when she got it in the mail. Our album is perfect! I wanted an album that I could display instead of one that would sit in a bookshelf in a few years. Our album cover has one of our favorite photos with an acrylic overlay. It makes the album! Another thing I love about Pam is that she can grow with our family over the years with her different packages she offers. I can’t wait to use Pam again in the future with our growing family. Pam did a wonderful job with capturing our engagement pictures and our wedding.

Megan & Tucker ~ Engagement Session & Wedding Celebration

My first experience with Pam was when she photographed my wedding in 2005. She was easy to work with and produced spectacular photographs, both posed and candid, that I will treasure forever. Since that time she has annually photographed our growing family. Recently I asked her to come and do a maternity photo shoot and the results were better than I could have imagined – her photographs made me feel beautiful in a way I never did with my two other pregnancies. We are planning to have Pam come and document the birth of our 3rd child in September and I just wish I had thought of this with my first two children! Photo shoots with Pam are always relaxed and low key and the results are superb. I can’t recommend her highly enough!

Leah & Jeremy ~ Wedding Celebration & Family Portraits

Working with Pam Harvey is a joy. She photographed our tenth wedding anniversary party, capturing candid images of our friends & family that contained all the love & laughter of the evening. Gracious & generous, she blended seamlessly into the group. Everyone assumed she was a longtime friend. Six years later, when my father died, we called on Pam again, this time to photograph his funeral service at Arlington National Cemetery. Pam’s work was remarkable. The images of that morning flow like a film, capturing every detail we were too distracted to notice at the time. Her talent has given us a wonderful gift that honors my father’s memory.
