About this pro

How does your service stand out?

Listening, observing, asking questions- in as much time as we have together, I want to get to know you. I'm all about creating moments and memories. So how do I do that? Gathering momentos of places, events and people has been a natural part of who I am since childhood. Creating photo albums packed with various items that would "transport me back to that event" was commonplace. Napkins from restaurants, plane, train and concert ticket stubs, receipts and ofcourse PHOTOS! One of my many mantras is..."everybody has a story and I love to tell stories,"

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Having the glory of limitless creative opportunities. Working with people ( all inclusive) - from maternity to seniors presents a new and exciting experience with each request. Bringing complete excitement & joy to a client, when presented with a stunning photo. Capturing that photo that is so perfect, so natural that looking back at it from behind the lens presents an adrenalin rush followed by goosebumps! Patiently waiting for a pets perfect pose and snapping it! I find beauty in everything and everywhere. The magic occurs somewhere in the connection of subject/my eyes/the lens.

    Loved working with Patti for our engagement photos! She went above and beyond arranging locations and props for my vision of vintage 40's style save the dates. She made the whole experience so enjoyable. We will never use another photographer!

    She was great and extremely friendly with everyone involved in our wedding. If we ever need a photographer for an event again she will be our first call/email.

    Wedding Photography
    Verified Review
    Patti was wonderful, our venue had a time crunch but, she captured so many special moments! She was wonderful to work with before, during and after. My special day was captured exactly how I visioned it. I knew from the first moment Patti contacted me that she would make my wedding perfect by capturing the goose bump moments! And all the moments in between.

    I find Patricia's photographs thought provoking & some just pure lovely to the eye. I have seen many of her photos and give her high marks on her art! I would hire her in a minute to take wedding photos & any other photos of any special occasion. I highly recommend her !!

    Patti is a professional with a heart! Her work is outstanding & she puts her all into each picture. She did photos of my twins when she was an amateur 11 years ago & I still treasure those photos today. Patti proves that you can still get your money's worth & feel good about it!

    Patty has an excellent eye for capturing vivid, candid moments in photo of your special event or occasion. In reviewing her portfolio you will be endeared and drawn into the photos seemingly experiencing the event as if you were there albeit through the lens of her camera! Great artist, hands down!

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Online classes through dps photography, plus blogs and connections with other photographers
What types of customers have you worked with?
I photograph nearly everything! May Be...everything. Flowers, animals (wild and domestic), people, landscape, graduation photos, modeling shots, architecture, water, insects, musicians, events...just look at my samples or I can get you my link for Viewbug....Facebook. I think my work should provide a good cross section.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Communication is critical. Engage with the photographer you believe you want and if something doesn't "feel" right? If you don't feel 100% comfortable? Say this word...NEXT. ?
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
I wish they knew the immense joy that photography, and journalism gives me. The creative process completes me. I wish they knew how dedicated I am to providing above and beyond what is expected.
