Lorraine Patricia Photography
Lorraine is a fabulous photographer who has an eye for classic, traditional photos mixed with photojournalisitc shots. She made the groom, families, and bridal party feel comfortable and relaxed and she took a LOT of pictures, mixing posed with many natural, candid shots. It rained on our big day, and you would not know it in the pictures - we used umbrellas as props, took lots of shots outside, and all the photos came out beautiful. I chose the Sandalwood package for my wedding, and the unlimited image and 12 hours of coverage was helpful because of the rain, and travel time between venues with summer traffic. I love that I now have a full set of proofs - printed - for us to keep in addition to the album we ordered. I do, however, wish that the images viewed online could be done in high resolution, and that a disc of images would be included prior to a year after the wedding date.
Our wedding photographs are just beautiful. stunning... our wedding album is enormous because we couldnt choose just 15-20. i think we have like 40 -50 photos in it.. BUT Lorraine was late. about an hour late, no phone call, no apologies. instead showed up with an attitude.
we went to take photos before the church, and then literally arrived at teh church 3 min before the 3pm start. WITH THE MEN!! the family were all milling in the back because there were no ushers to seat them
then at the reception we had to run and get her a few times to take some photos... and finally. she left before it was over
all in , we have beautiful photos and thats the main point. but if you dont want to start out your day stressed and in tears.. and then angry and frustrated, i say stay away
When we first met with Lorraine we really liked her personality and just clicked with her. We liked her style and her photojournalistic approach as well as the fact that she is very organized. She had the unobtrusive approach we wanted and a mix of photojournalistic, model, and posed photography.
At the wedding she and her husband were very helpful. They came to the hotel while the girls and I were getting ready and even gave some of the bridesmaids a ride to the reception hall because we didn’t really plan out the arrangement all that well, LOL. Due to time constraints they fit in as many posed pictures as they could but kept us on schedule.
During the ceremony and reception, Aaron and I barely knew they were there which we thought was wonderful. They stayed out of the way and were basically invisible until we saw Lorraine’s husband (her assistant) setting up a laptop on our gift table. He had set up a slideshow of the pictures they had taken before the ceremony. We had no idea they were going to do that and it was so neat to see the pictures, already edited, from that morning! What I saw was wonderful so I cannot wait to see all the pics!
I was very pleased with the services that Lorraine Patricia Provided. The package that we chose included an Engagement Session which gave us the opportunity to see her work with us as the subjects before the wedding. Needless to say, we were very pleased! Lorraine and her entire staff were very helpful thoughout the entire process. She is easy to contact and always gets back to you to answer any and all questions. She also did something really cool... she set up a laptop at the reception where there was a slide show of photos from me getting ready and things at the church. It was awesome and many people commented on her work!
I highly recommend Lorraine Patricia Photography. She really captured our wedding on film. The shots - both posed and candid - are all amazing. It was really difficult picking the photos for our wedding album since there were so many great ones to choose from. And the amazing thing is she captured all these moments without being obtrusive at all - I hardly noticed she was there. Just amazing work! It was also a pleasure working with her - she was very organized, listened to our requirements and really knew what we were looking for on our wedding day.
