Searching For An Event Photographer In The Reno, Lake Tahoe, Carson City, Sacramento, or San Francisco Areas? Photographer Patrick Wilkes Will Capture The Special Moments Of Your Event, Family Reunion, Birthday, or Anniversary Celebration


Fort Ross Heritage Day

Dear Event Planner,

Looking for photographs that capture the unique moments of your event and the emotions that event attendees feel as they participate in your gathering? Great photographs have the power to go viral on social media, spreading the word about your event and increasing attendance.

Photographing events that pay tribute to the culture or history of an area is one of my specialties, but I also enjoy preserving in time those special moments that occur at family reunions and birthday and anniversary celebrations. My black and white photos add a touch of authenticity to any event that pays tribute to a historical time frame or to events held at historic venues.

Here are some examples of the events I have photographed:

  • Official Photographer for Nevada's 150 Year Celebration (many events throughout 2014)
  • Official Photographer for the annual Fort Ross Heritage Day
  • Various events for the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe and other Tribes in Northern Nevada and California (2011 to 2015)
  • The 2012 Symbiosis Gathering at Pyramid Lake
  • Sacred Visions Pow Wow at Pyramid Lake, NV
  • The Annual Glendi Festival in Santa Rosa, California
  • The Northern Nevada ADDY Awards, Reno, Nevada
  • The Fallon Soroptimists Speakeasy event
  • Numerous Family Reunions, Birthday, and Anniversary Celebrations

I invite you to take a look at my online Event Gallery to view samples of my photographs. You can also call me today at 775-560-9453 or drop me a line by email at [email protected] so we can talk about how I can help capture the special moments of your event in the Reno, Lake Tahoe, Carson City, and Northern California areas.

Here's to your successful event or celebration,

Photographer Patrick Wilkes



“Patrick Wilkes is an amazing photographer and a very professional business man. He photographed my wedding weekend, and definitely went above and beyond with pictures. When he sent me my pictures I did not expect most of them. My wedding was on the beach, and the morning of my wedding he took pictures of shells and the environment. It gave me a feel of what the day was like and how I will always remember it. Even though those pictures were not of me and my husband, they are in our photo album because they are very special. I recommend Patrick Wilkes Photographs to the highest degree.” —Gitaine Reis.

“Patrick’s attention to detail and eye for photography is very impressive. Patrick has a true talent for capturing events and appropriately interacting with people to make sure the right photos are captured.” —Scott H. Carey, Events & Community Relations Manager, State of Nevada


“Fort Ross State Park offers many unique settings. I have enjoyed working with Patrick as he is able to capture the ‘moment’. For more than six years we have worked closely with Patrick and have never been disappointed. Patrick is flexible with our needs, finds ways to cover an entire event, and the volunteers and visitors love him. We do too!” —Robin Joy Wellman, Park Interpretive Specialist at Fort Ross State Park

“Outstanding is a great word to describe Patrick’s photographic ability! Whether a posed or candid photo during our event he was able to capture the essence of the party. I would more than highly recommend Patrick Wilkes to anyone who asks for a terrific photographer and even to anyone who doesn’t ask!” —Marjory MacQuarrie.
