Seattle area native Bruce Hudson and his late wife Sue started Hudson’s Photography in 1982. Bruce, a former Tahoma High School band director in Maple Valley, WA, and Sue, an administrative assistant for the City of Renton, WA, took the wonderful hobby of photography and turned it into a full time profession! In the early years of Hudson Portraits, Bruce and Sue’s main focus was to build a business on the strong foundation of superior customer service and innovative photography. “We have always had a passion for our clients that was contagious. I feel that is why our business grew so quickly from the start. Positive word of mouth marketing spread like wildfire,” says Bruce!
As the business grew, so did the number of photographic awards. Bruce Hudson’s local, national, and international accolades are numerous. And thousands of photographers have personally studied with Bruce over the years. Today, Hudson’s Portrait Design is considered one of the top family portrait and wedding photography studios in the country! 33 years later the focus is still centered solely on the photographic needs of their clients. Many of Bruce Hudson’s early high school senior clients from the 1980’s returned later as brides and grooms. They then came back as parents of newborn children, as family portrait clients, and even parents of high school senior clients! “At Hudson’s it’s all about relationships! When you treat clients right and provide them with a unique and professional service, they come back again and again,” says Bruce.
