A former television producer and news director, Patty is known for her efficiency, ability to keep things on schedule under pressure, her attention to detail and storytelling, as well as capturing genuine moments.... the laughter, the smiles and the tears on wedding days. Patty and her assistant photographers use only the best equipment, shooting with Canon 5D Mark III's, L Series Canon lenses and on & off camera flash when necessary to get the results natural light alone can't achieve.
Patty has photographed over 300 weddings since starting her photography business in 2005. She believes in delivering quality work within a reasonable timeframe. Her average turn-around time to deliver wedding galleries is one month or less from the wedding date, and portrait session galleries within 2 weeks or less.
