INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism
What do your packages include?
Albums, Custom Graphic Design, Digital Files, Flush Mount, High Resolution Images, Prints, Proof CD of All Images
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
Yes, I enjoy black and white and sepia images. Black and white has such a timeless elegance about it and is perfect for showcasing images filled with emotion. However, I also think an image should be able to stand on its own without the need for a lot of post processing.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
Although my preference is to shoot with natural light whenever possible, I am definitely comfortable shooting under any lighting conditions, whether it be indoor, outdoor, or mixed lighting. In addition to my on camera flash, I also utilize off camera lighting to bring more drama and depth to the images, especially during the reception.
Is your media preference film or digital?
I made the switch to entirely digital about nine years ago and love it!
How many photographers do you work with?
I own my studio and one of my goals is to provide very personal service to each and every couple. You will only deal directly with me in all of our communications. Depending on the package, I do also shoot with a second shooter at times, but that is always in addition to my shooting, never instead of.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
I only ever shoot one wedding a day, and typically only one a weekend.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Yes! My husband is also a professional photographer and would be the first person I would turn to, but I also have a network of photographers in the area that I could call upon if needed. It's never been necessary in all the time I've been shooting, but it's nice to know they're there, just in case!
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
My Nikon cameras and lenses and off camera lighting are standard, and then added to as the situation demands.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Yes, definitely! I have backups for everything, from camera bodies to flashes to lenses, etc. No professional photographer should ever be without backup equipment!
Do you charge hourly or full day?
My most popular packages are for full day coverage, but I do also offer hourly packages.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
Yes, as I only ever shoot one wedding a day, it's never a problem to stay later if necessary.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
The action never stops during a wedding, and that means neither do I!
Do you charge for travel?
It depends on where it is. Travel within 50 miles of the Raleigh area is included, as well as Boone and Asheville. Ask about your specific venue and I'd be happy to give you a quote.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
Depending on the time of year, proofs are generally available for viewing withing 4 weeks, with a sneak peak up on the blog within a couple of days.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
Proofs are posted to an online album that is available for both viewing images as well as ordering prints.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
The online album is posted for a minimum of 3 months.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
Yes, I retain the copyright but the couple receives a print release allowing them to reproduce the images for personal use.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
Yes, unless special arrangements are made with the couple ahead of time.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Yes, all of my packages include the digital files with print release.
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes, all of my packages include an online proofing album that will be online for a minimum of three months.
What kind of albums do you offer?
I offer a wide variety of albums, from contemporary flush mount styles, more traditional matted albums and even eco-friendly green albums.
When will the client get the final album?
After you receive your proofs, I recommend that you take a little while to really absorb all of the images before making your selections for the album. You'll find that each time you look through them, you'll notice different images. When you're ready, you'll give me a list of must have images for the album, and then another list "if there's still space" images. I'll use these lists to design the album, which usually takes 2-4 weeks, depending on the time of year. You'll then review the design and I'll make any necessary changes. After you approve the design, it goes to the album company.

Patricia was recommended to us by a co-worker and she was great. Easy to work with, professional and most importantly the pictures were fabulous! At first we were going to go with a package with 2 photographers, but she recommended only using one as our wedding was fairly small. It ended up being a great recommendation as we barely noticed her once the ceremony and reception got going, but looking through the pictures, she was able to get everything and then some, and saved us some money. Couldn't be more pleased.

Patty was recommended to my husband and I by one of my sorority sisters. Patty took the pictures for her wedding and we are so glad she was able to shoot our wedding. She is an amazing photographer. Our pictures turned out better than I could have imagined. Patty is very flexible, professional, and captured so many great shots from the most amazing/fun day of my life! Book her!

Patty took my boudoir pictures in April 2010. She was wonderful to work with and instantly put me at ease during the photo shoot. The pictures are amazing and my husband LOVES them! I've caught him looking at them several times since receiving the pictures as a gift for our wedding. Thanks Patty!

Patty photographed a friend of mine's wedding I was unable to attend and I felt like I had been at the wedding just from looking at the photographs. I was immediately interested in having her photograph mine and my now husband's wedding. My friend said she was great to work with and I have had the same wonderful experience. Patty has a great eye for not only photographing but does seamless photo-editing (which is important as my mom wanted to remove a "bump" of tulle in my veil for her larger bridal portrait, etc.). She is also great at working with all different types of individuals. (I had the gamut in my wedding from the demanding matriarchs to the wise-cracking groomsmen and she was able to please the queen bees and joke with the groomsmen equally well...She even quickly figured out to direct our 12 year old nephew as he often likes to make faces in pictures without any warning.) We had 12 bridal party members and she was great at quickly organizing everyone for group shots in a direct but polite fashion. I was extremely pleased with all of our images and honestly feel like no one else could have done a better job. Patty is very personable and creative and really puts a lot into doing everything possible to make her clientele happy--and it shows in her work! I very candidly recommend Patty to anyone for their wedding; it is really evident she puts her heart into her work. I have received nothing but compliments on all of the images from my friends and my often difficult to please family. Other important items: Patty is very prompt at returning any calls or emails you may send her; answers all of your questions; she is very flexible and professional; and she will remind you if there is anything she needs from you (which is extremely helpful if you�re planning a wedding yourself!). If you�re interested, don�t wait too long to book. I called Patty just over a year before our wedding and someone called the next week for our same date. Our wedding day was really such a wonderful blur; my husband and I are equally glad we invested in such quality photography preserve our memory of it. Happy wedding planning!

Patty was excellent!!! My husband and I were so happy we found her to photograph our wedding because those are the memories we get to look back on. We did a bridal session as well as a "Trash the Dress" session after the wedding. She captured so much with her images and the album she designed was amazing....we get compliments on it everytime we have friends over to our house. I highly reccommend Patty for your wedding as she was professional and was not overbearing like many photographers I have seen at weddings.

Patty was a absolute joy to work with! We've gotten so many compliments on our photos. We chose her as our photographer because she did a great job on a wedding I was a bridesmaid in. She's easy to work with and doesn't pull the "I'm an artist" attitude that I saw when interviewing other photographers. I also did a boudoir session with her which if you're thinking about doing I would definitely recommend! Overall it was a fantastic experience. I debated about what to put for value and ended up giving her a 4 just because she's not what I would call a budget photographer, but I would say she's money well spent and worth a bit of a splurge. Book her!
