About PATKEN PHOTOGRAPHER

Vintage Glamour Meets Contemporary Fashion

Patken Photographer Inc (www.patkenphotographer.com) established in Lindenhurst, N.Y is a family owned and operated photography studio serving world wide with offices in Long Island and Central Florida On a credit card and a dream Pat and Ken Gordon took a chance that would forever change the course of there lives and many others. Ken had been around weddings and photography his whole life starting as a teenager. He was hooked early on and loved the power of the arts. This led him to study at the famed School of Visual Arts in NY City. Unfortunately Vietnam and starting a family slowed his dream a bit to become a full time wedding and portrait photographer. After several years of letting there dreams sit idle and working for others doing what they had to do rather than what they were meant to do. They decided as a couple it was time for change. The time had come for Pat and Ken to stop dreaming. So in the basement of there Lindenhurst home back in 1985 Patken Wedding Photographer and Video were born. Ken dusted off his old Rolliflex Twin Lens Reflex camera and went for it. 
As though he had never stopped the love affair with wedding photography was instantly reignited. Although it wasn't yet full time employment they were having the time of there life. Both Pat and Ken continued working day jobs while trying to manage Patken at night. Although the company was growing, they knew there was only so much they could do as part timers. That's when the light went on for them both which proved to be the turning point in Patken Photographers history. There son Doug Gordon who was a long time assistant for his dad was getting to the later years of High School. It was clear by his effort in school that college was probably not an option. So they made an offer that Doug couldn't refuse. Come help us grow! Work in the studio so that we are open full time, learn to sell, learn to create art rather than just photograph weddings and most importantly share who you are as a person and we will call you partner. At the young age of 16 while still attending High School Doug changed the destiny of Patken forever. For the first time in his life he knew what he was meant to do and loved to do. He was obsessed.To this day he says that it was his first love affair. The ability to create stories, make subjects feel good about themselves and freeze history was beyond exciting to him. " I love the fact that people remember there lives through my eyes, my feelings, my emotions and everything I am" he says. " wanted to be the best and for the first time in my life I was willing to work to get there". That work payed off as Doug Gordon has worked over the last 28 years to become one of the most well known and highly decorated photographers in the world with his crowing moment in 2011 when he was chosen as one of a very select few to ever receive a United Nations Leadership Award for his work as Wedding and Portrait Photographer. His vision not only extended to himself but to the Patken team as they quietly continued to grow and build through there family and friends an unparalleled team of photographers and cinematographers. When asked what separates a Patken Photographer, Doug says simply "consistency, our team is trained to do things the same way and adapt to a clients individual needs, personalities and desires." 

After 33 years of photographing weddings and portraits around the world, we can say proudly the love affair is only just beginning. As one of the leading photography and cinema companies in the wedding and portrait industry today, we continue to evolve and grow. Patken is about our clients and we consider you our extended family. We love being able to create and capture the story of who you are on the inside and out through the lenses of our Nikon cameras. Our images are described best as personable and glamorous with a fashionably editorial twist, We aim to create the same consistent images for all of our clients with subtle differences who make you who you are.
We want to thank you for visiting our page and for the opportunity to see who we are. We look forward to meeting you.

Doug Gordon is a phenomenally talented photographer and, an absolute delight to work with. Doug's impeccable style is somewhat a hybrid between sexy, (but tasteful) and romantic which is classic. From the first time my Fiancé and I met with Doug, to our engagement shoot, and beyond, we took comfort in knowing that we could rely on Doug to capture our personalities and relationship, and that peace of mind is priceless. At our engagement shoot, Doug was always there making sure we were comfortable with every stage of the process. As a well seasoned Photographer, Doug went over and beyond three weeks prior to our shoot, notifying us of a potentially double booking of our outdoor engagement shoot which could of potentially jeopardize the look and feel of the day/photos. In the end, with his experience and being the venue's (e.g. Old Westbury Gardens) preferred Photographer's; we was able to be the one scheduled session for that day!! To top it off, we received all photos taken that same day with a beautifully crafted slideshow. Many, Many, Thanks Doug,

- Adana and Vincent

Looking through some of our photos and a trailer of our video, I am so happy that we used Patken for our photos. Steve and Rachel were awesome during the day taking photos. They were so friendly and made both of our families feel comfortable with posing and taking pictures. They had both been to our venue for weddings and since they knew where all of the best photos were, it made the entire process so much smoother! Steve had made extra sure leading up to the day of that he knew what we were looking for in our photos (who we wanted photos with, where we wanted photos taken, and the type of style we were looking for). It all ran so smoothly. Our videographer Mike was also amazing and captured so many little details of our day that I feel like I am reliving it every time I watch our wedding trailer. I highly recommend Patken, they were very professional and great quality.
