Experience

Merging creativity with a career was the dream of husband-and-wife Pat and Ken Gordon. Ken harbored a lifelong vision to pursue his interests in the visual arts. Due to family life and the Vietnam war, his goal was put on hold until 1985, when the devoted couple established their own company. Ken reconnected with his vintage Rolleiflex Twin Lens Reflex camera and rediscovered his true passion in life. Soon, their son Doug joined the team and discovered his true calling in life. Over 35 years later, the business boasts numerous awards and accolades within the wedding industry. Now led by Doug, a renowned figure within the industry, the company boasts a professional and diverse collection of artists.

    Beyond Any Expectation

    Words can't begin to express how happy we are with how Patken Photographer handled our wedding, but I will give it a go.

    We had the fortune of meeting Doug at a wedding expo. Immediately, we were impressed with his track record and congeniality, and knew we could trust him with capturing our day. This was no small feat as we both are working students with a set budget who started planning nearly a year-and-a-half in advance so there was no shortage of research and vetting when it came to selecting our vendors. Doug was, and is, that good because we did not even make it out the door before deciding that he was our photographer.

    Doug was always punctual, and he and his team always reachable. On the wedding day, he wasn't just any old vendor (and we had several great vendors). It was like having your favorite uncle from New York taking the pictures, and I couldn't help but smile as he interacted with my family. The pictures came in quick, and they were wonderful!

    I strongly recommend Doug and Patken Photographer to anyone looking for photography, and I know he will be the first person I call in the future the next time I'm looking to capture valued memories.

    PATKEN PHOTOGRAPHER's reply:

    Thank you so much for your kind words about Doug. It means so much to us that you trusted us and took the time to review us. We look for2ard to seeing you in the future

    Valentina’s Sweet 16

    The staff at Patken photographers are absolutely amazing. From the office staff to the photographers and videographers they make your event the most special event you would ever have. My daughter‘s sweet 16 was truly a night to remember. Sabrina and Jimmy captured all of her wonderful memories without being intrusive. I cannot wait to see the final products. I would definitely use them again.
