The Victorian: A. A. Nelson Home

Our studio is located in the historic Victorian home built for Albert A. Nelson in 1898. The home has seen many changes and owners over the past 100 plus years. It was designed by Diedrich Rulfs, who designed more than 50 homes, churches and buildings in Nacogdoches from the 1880s until the 1920s. Many are listed as Texas Historical Landmarks or National Register Landmarks.

The mere fact that we operate out of this gorgeous home gives our studio an edge others cannot compete with. It's not just the unique look we can achieve from our in-studio portraits either. Our studio is an inviting place where clients and prospective clients alike may leisurely engage in one of our no obligation consultations While we get to know you better, your children are free to enjoy the playhouse and play area. This process helps the entire family feel comfortable when the time comes to take portraits.

The Portrait Garden

G. Patterson Studio boasts the largest portrait garden in all of East Texas. With greenery and colorful blooms year round, our garden includes a beautiful country gazebo, quaint pond complete with waterfall, rock flower beds, arbors, pergola, rock and stone paths.

We often hear clients say that they are utterly amazed at the variety of looks we can get from within our garden. And this East Texas secret treasure sits right in the backyard of our charming Victorian Style Studio.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the staff! They are awesome! I love that they are no pressure and let you get what you want and spend as little or as much as you want. And they are always helpful when helping me pick the right poses.

The studio and grounds were simply amazing and I can't think of anywhere else we would of liked better to share in such a special memory of graduation. Thanks for working so well with Crash(the dog) and for the delicious cookies!!

David, Debi and Devyn J.

I had a GREAT experience and the outcome was totally worth it! My pictures couldn't be better and I don't think I would ever go anywhere else to take pictures for any occasion!

Brittany H.

I would highly recommend Greg Patterson for any of your occasions, believe me, it would be worth it to travel-like I did.

Brittany H.

We picked up my son's senior portraits yesterday! They were absolutely amazing!!! Better than I could have ever imagined! Thank you all so much! Great professional service before, during and after the session! We will definitely suggest you to our friends!

Darla S.

Our family portrait session was relaxed and lots of fun. The variety of ways Greg had us pose to get the right personality stood out. Greg obviously cares about what he's doing and likes people. You won't be disappointed - Well worth the investment.

Melissa B.

I can't begin to express my appreciation for all that you provided for our family photo. From the very beginning of this adventure, you gave me your full attention to what would help make everyone feel at ease. Your outstanding people skills provided us with an A+ morning

Helen O.

Our family pictures are gorgeous and we were so surprised as we could not believe how many good pictures we had to choose from. It can be so hard to photograph 3 kids under the age of 5. The pictures were amazing!

Stephanie C.

Every session has been very professional, fun for my daughter, and most productive. Greg is wonderful, patient, so good with kids. My daughter can be rather shy but she always warms up to Greg. And I love seeing the final product.

Dana C.

The pictures are always very high quality. My friends and family are just blown away by the backgrounds, fun poses, great expressions, and (again) the quality of the photos. If you want amazing pictures of your children and family, THIS is the studio to choose.

Dana C.

Everyone who has seen my pictures loves them. We're really excited to do our little boy's newborn pics this week. And my husband, who hates taking pictures, wants to come back in the spring for family photos. Now that says something!

Kathy R.

My children have been photographed by Greg Patterson for the past 10 years. He always does an amazing job, and each time I feel like it is more and more difficult to narrow down the photos. I cherish the memories he helps to capture in time.

Lori H.

The portraits of my daughter were perfect. We are so proud of all the work they did. We had a great experience with the whole Patterson Studio Crew before, during and after the shoal Worth every penny.

Rhonda C.

Thank you for taking such wonderful pictures of our wedding! They are all so beautiful. We will be telling others how great all of you are both personally and professionally.
