My husband and I hired Patken for our wedding, 12/27/19 after my sister had such a great experience with Patken at her wedding. The pictures are AMAZING and their service is remarkable. Any questions that we had were answered right away and they were very easy to work with.Sent on 02/20/2020
I had Sabrina as my photographer, who makes taking pictures enjoyable and Danny as my videographer. My sister had Vinnie as her photographer, who is just as amazing! I cannot say enough good things about all of them! They are truly incredible. They made taking pictures fun, while listened to every request we had. We were amazed at how they were able to capture every minute of our beautiful day. To give a little insight on how amazing Sabrina was, she had packed up all of her cameras and a family member ran up asking for one more picture, so Sabrina, without hesitation, went to the car to grab a camera and came back to take a picture for them. Truly AMAZING!
We just received our pictures and they are absolutely stunning. Overall, from the moment we stepped in for our first meeting with Patken, to our wedding, everything was so natural and perfect. I could not have asked for a better experience. If you want an excellent experience, Patken is definitely the way to go!

Doug was our photographer for our wedding and engagement photos. He did such a wonderful job of capturing the emotion of the day, which is very hard to do. Anyone can pose you and make you look pretty. But, to feel the love in the photographs is a great talent. I would definitely recommend Patken Photography for all your special life events!Sent on 12/16/2020
PATKEN PHOTOGRAPHER's reply:Thanks so much Hillary! We are so thrilled to hear of your great experience with Doug. He loved you guys as well. Hard to get him to drive 5 hours each way for anybody,lol!

Book with patken asap
My husband and I got engaged back in 2018, and we began planning our 10/10/2020 wedding right away. As the pandemic raged on this year, our plans that were in the works for years had been almost completely turned upside down. Our original wedding photographer offered a refund after informing us that they were no longer 100% comfortable shooting our wedding and that there would need to be cuts to our package - 30 days before the big day! We were scrambling. A family friend recommended Patken and the rest is history! We wish we booked with them sooner! Patken was so reassuring, accommodating, and really put our nerves at ease during such thing times. The flexibility in their packages was super budget friendly and they cut out all the fluff that other companies will try to squeeze from you. I had the absolute pleasure of working with Beatrice for wedding photography and Jimmy for wedding videographer. These people know what they are doing! So terrifically professional, talented, kind, and funny. Their stunning personalities made the day that much more special. My husband and I are just gushing over our wedding video and photos! We cannot wait to use Patken for all of our photography and videography needs in the future!!!! We recommend Patken for you too.Sent on 10/31/2020
