Personable and professional wedding photography!

Patty was truly amazing from start to finish. She went above and beyond throughout the entire wedding process-- She even offered to come to our joint bachelorette party to take pictures. Everyone at the wedding thought that she was phenomenal and very personable. The pictures are gorgeous and really reflective of who my wife and I are as a couple.

A trusted professional with a wonderful eye!

I can't say enough about how pleased I am to have had Patty as our wedding photographer. Right from the start initiating contact with Patty as a potential vendor, I was immediately comfortable with her approach to wedding photography. I was so impressed with the materials that she sent us after entering into contract with her- they helped to ensure that I was prepared on the wedding day and also helped to set expectations for the flow of the day. Patty is very comfortable to be around and blended right in. She was calm but also firm to make sure that we checked all the boxes of what we wanted to capture from the day. Her presence actually helped keep the drama and stress at bay which is something I didn't even know I would need. We just got our gallery of photos this week and I'm reliving all the special moments over and over again, as well as getting to see some special moments that I didn't get to firsthand experience which is exciting. I would absolutely recommend Kivalo Photography to new brides. You won't be regret it this decision. Thank you Patty!

Wondeful Experience

Patty was an excellent photographer that we would highly recommend. She is polite, professional, no-nonsense, and will make sure that you get every photo you want at your big day. We weren't able to meet before the day due to our being located so far away, but she touched base frequently to check in on progress and planning, get to know each other before we spent the actual day together, and ask for our insight on what was most important to us day of so she could be sure to get those images. She was also helpful in making recommendations regarding sequencing of photo events to ensure the best amount of photo time and time enjoying our event. Seperately, Patty suggested some great other vendors based on her experience at other weddings, which was so helpful. We highly recommend Patty / Kivalo!
