Portrait by Reno Portrait Photographer Patrick WilkesWhether you're a couple looking for an engagement photo, a Reno, Carson City, or Gardnerville high school student in need of senior portraits, a businessperson seeking a sophisticated shot, or a parent who wants a family photograph, I can provide you with a stunning image that brings out the best in you and your loved ones.

Look Like a Movie Star in a Black and White Classic Film

My experience taking photos in historical and cultural locations and my love of these areas makes me uniquely suited to capture your senior portrait or family photo in front of your favorite historical or cultural landmark. I take plenty of colorful photos. But I also specialize in black and white portraits that create a vintage look, like a movie star in a classic black and white film.

Adorable Children's Portraits

Children's portraits also are my specialty. I can provide you with images of your kids that you'll treasure forever. Kids grow so quickly that it's enjoyable for me to capture one smile or look that will never happen in that exact way ever again.

I invite you to visit my online Portrait Gallery. Portrait sessions fill up quickly. So call me today at 775-560-9453 or email me at [email protected] to book your senior portraits, engagement photos, or portrait sessions in the Reno, Lake Tahoe, Carson City, or Minden – Gardnerville area as well as in any Tribal community in Northern Nevada.

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.
