Capturing memories
Seasoned with weddings


I believe that your wedding day is the most important day of your life to date - the day you start a new life with your best friend by your side. The images from your day should capture the memories of the day, but also capture the emotions of the day. I strive the tell the story of your day with the images I capture so you can remember it all every time you look at the photos.

I hope you’ll consider meeting in person so we can discuss your plans and find a program that will work for your needs and your budget.

Patty is amazing!

Patty was truly amazing! We were comfortable with her from our very first meeting - she really made the effort to get to know us. We had our engagement session in March 2019, which was a great way for us all to spend some time together before our November 2019 wedding. Patty was organized and had many ideas and suggestions to help the flow of the wedding day timeline. She was able to direct us and make sure we were ready for the next step, while still making it fun. Even when we had a minor timeline hiccup between the ceremony at the church and the reception at the golf club, Patty managed to ensure we ended up with the best photos of every important moment, with plenty of candid ones too. The wedding day went by so quickly, but once we received our images, we were able to relive the day. We couldn’t have been happier with Patty and her second photographer. Our wedding albums, which we received recently, are just perfect and we are happy to have them to share with family. Patty is so easy to work with, has great communication throughout the process, and truly knows her stuff. We will definitely be working with Patty again for family photos in the future! Thank you, Patty!

Exceeds expectations!

Patty and her crew are INCREDIBLE. From the minute we engaged in the on-boarding process, Patty actively connected with us, kept us informed, and spent time learning about us. She doubled as a wedding planner (not kidding) as she helped us make our visions reality. We had two ceremonies (Christian & Hindu) plus a morning Indian ceremony and an evening reception. Patty thoughtfully outlined a preliminary schedule to help us get started. She went above and beyond the day of to make sure everything ran smoothly. She was a true partner through the process, and a killer photographer the day of! Trust me, a wedding is stressful enough, and it can be hard to be "present" day-of, but having Patty there was so reassuring. She doesn't miss a beat and is quick on her feet. Patty and her crew were a true blessing and we are so happy they shared in our big day!

A Great Photographer!

Patty was fantastic! She was always available, her pictures were beautiful, and she made sure to get all the shots we asked for. She was patient, realistic, and incredibly helpful throughout the entire process. She not only gave us great pictures, but also gave us advice on other good local vendors to use and helped us throughout the pre-wedding and wedding day stresses! We were thrilled when we got our pictures back and can't wait to see the book she is putting together for us!

I have had the pleasure of working with Patty on many photoshoots doing makeup and hair. She is the ultimate professional and her clients love her as she has many that have been with her for years. This allows her to follow her clients special milestones and capture all of their most precious events beautifully forever. Her work is timeless and perfect. I would highly recommend her to anyone for senior portraits to brides to families to head shots and everything in between!

I got to work with Patty and her team on a beautiful, overcast, early fall evening wedding. They were professional and very easy to work with. I've viewed the photos from that night on her website and just love what she's done. She had advised us before the wedding that with the overcast sky, we'd loose the light quickly and we were able to come up with a solution to get the photos in a little early and what she produced is magnificent. I will recommend her to any bride and look forward to working with her again.

Patty Schuchman was the event photographer for a Fashion Show that I worked on. She captured the models in action and got amazing photos! She also took headshots at the event and the final products were fabulous. The business women have been using their photos both in social media and for business. It was a pleasure working with Patty and her team. Can not wait to do it again.
