Green Hat Media was wonderful to work with! Garrett totally got my weird and quirky ideas right away and just went with it, and made them look just as I imagined, but better! I would definitely recommend his services!!!

Garrett and his team always go the extra mile to provide the best experience for their clients. Green Hat produced exceptional photos and videos for my sorority's recruitment. They created a beautiful piece for the full video, a heartfelt piece covering our philanthropic efforts, and an energizing promotional video. When we asked to do an extra video for our International Headquarters, they quickly turned around the piece that blew us away. I look forward to working together in the future!

Green Hat Media did a fantastic job as videographer for our wedding!! My husband and I met Garrett at a wedding and he showed us a highlight reel that he had produced previously and we knew we wanted one for our wedding. He was timely, had affordable pricing and was very professional. Can't wait to work with him again on our upcoming maternity shoot! Highly recommend Green Hat Media!

From our initial meeting to discuss my goals for the photographs to the final selection process, I found Garrett to be a great person to work with. He was patient, kind and funny when working with me and my canine pack. One of his photographs brought tears to my eyes as I felt it perfectly captured my joy. He has a great eye and readily shared ideas of how the photos could be used for future marketing purposes.

My wife and I organized and paid for our wedding together. In the midst of the chaos that was our wedding, Garrett was right there with us helping make sure we got the shots we wanted. Garrett knows what he's supposed to do, that much is very clear. More than that, he knows the sweet spot for every series of shots and how to bring it out in you. Whatever your event may be, go with Green Hat Media LLC.

Garrett Poortinga did the photography for my wedding and he did an amazing job! He has handled everything very professionally. I am amazed at how well he coordinated the day of the wedding, especially with the people who were not so easy to deal with. Garrett was great to work with, he has a great personality and is very easy to get along with. I highly recommend him and would hire him again in a heartbeat!

Garret is the greatest! If you're not used to being in front of a camera it can be quite unsettling at first but he is great at getting you to relax and have fun. He was also very patient with us as we are a silly couple. Bottom line... Our headshots were so good that it was hard to choose which ones to use. 10 stars!

Behind the Lens


Garrett Poortinga, founder of Green Hat Media, is constantly intrigued by the world around him and the mind’s capacity for perception. By way of camera, both still and video, Garrett has learned to view the world around him and better understand the people, places, and events that define his life.

Starting Green Hat Media in January of 2014 was a nature extension of this curiosity. During his master program in Media Design and Production at Indiana University, Garrett focused on better understanding the client relationship, which culminated in a three-tiered capstone project serving clients in three areas of media: Arts & Entertainment, Non-profit, and Commercial work. In addition to running Green Hat Media as primary photographer and video producer, Garrett loves to teach and learn, to travel with his wife, and to help make his local community of Bloomington Indiana a wonderful place to live!
