Amazing, Quality, Professional, Extraordinary Experience
We originally scheduled Pat for our wedding that was planned this past October. Due to the unforeseen circumstances 2020 presented, we decided to push our wedding back to 2021, but continue with our original wedding date for a small elopement. Pat was incredibly easy to work with for rescheduling our big ceremony/reception to 2021, and was incredibly generous with her time for our elopement in 2020.Sent on 12/24/2020
My wife and I loved that she took time to get to know us as individuals and a couple, and wow did it show in the final product! I am not the kind of person who likes standing in front of a camera, but Pat made it incredibly easy and fun. She really knows her stuff, exactly where to position you, the perfect lighting for the situation, and came prepared for anything.
I think the thing we appreciated most, was that she was very protective of us. I know that sounds weird, but believe, me in the moment it's amazing. Pat had no problem moving people out of the way and making sure we got exactly what my wife and I wanted. She made sure the day was all about us and getting the absolute best product possible.
We just got the pictures back from Pat this week and oh my goodness are they amazing! There's a reason Pat is the absolute best at what she does, and I would highly recommend anyone who wants gorgeous pictures that you will be able to enjoy for decades to come, to look no further.
We're already so excited and we can't wait to work with Pat again in 2021!

Incredibly Talented Photographer and Amazing Friend!
Pat is an incredibly talented and supportive photographer. She made our engagement session fun and enjoyable even though my husband and I don’t do well in front of cameras. On the wedding day, she took her time in order to ensure her artistic vision was carried out and gave advice when we began to feel nervous or overwhelmed. Pat does an amazing job of making her clients feel like a friend and not just someone paying for her services. She is truly amazing! I cannot recommend her enough.Sent on 04/25/2021

Match made in wedding photographer heaven!
My husband and I both hit it off with Pat on our very first meeting. She is knowledgeable, genuine, and so easy to speak to. My gratitude for her is immeasurable and she was truly the best support system while trying to plan a wedding...especially during 2020. Any anxieties I had during the engagement session or on our wedding day itself were quickly resolved because she truly acts as a friend during what can be a whirlwind of a day. She is always responsive, honest, and truly connects with her couples’ individuality. I could go on and on! You’re gaining a friend in Pat, as well as picture perfect memories of your most special day!Sent on 04/17/2021

Pat Cori Photography is amazing!
WOW is an understatement! I’m truly amazed, mesmerized, speechless, etc. with the talent that Pat has! Not only is she a FABULOUS photographer, she’s also so kind and really gets to know her couples. Not only did she take our engagement and wedding photos, but she will be the one we go to for all of our other pictures. Such a joy to work with! So so so so happy we had her as our photographer! Wouldn’t choose another soul🥰💛💛Sent on 12/10/2019

Pat is just simply the best! She’s not only an amazing photographer but she’s wonderful to work with (as a bride & as a vendor)! We received our wedding photos back recently and let me tell you, if you have not booked a photographer for your special day, don’t wait another minute to book Pat Cori Photography. Our wedding photos were even more breathtaking than I imagined they would be, Pat captured our day and our relationship perfectly and we are so glad we hired her for our wedding. I’ve known Pat for a couple years and after the first wedding we worked together on, I knew I’d want her to shoot my wedding one day. When I reached out to see if she would be interested in being the photographer for our wedding, Tyler and I didn't have a wedding date yet. We wanted Pat to capture our engagement photos on the Blue Ridge Parkway as the Fall leaves were changing and time was ticking. Pat didn't skip a beat, jumped right in and made sure we had the perfect date scheduled to take engagement photos. To say they were amazing is an understatement and we had so much fun during the session! Several weeks went by and we still hadn't found a venue for our wedding, which meant we still didn't have a wedding date. Pat was so patient with us and worked with us making sure we knew which dates she was still available and we were able to work with each other's schedules to make sure she could work with us on our wedding day. Leading up to and on the day of our wedding, Pat was so helpful with shot lists and what would and wouldn't work to make our day run smoothly (since neither of us like a lot of pictures or attention) she listened to what we wanted and she and her second shooter made perfect suggestions. I can't say enough wonderful things about Pat, if you are looking for an amazing, talented, fun photographer for your wedding day who will deliver phenomenal pictures for you and your spouse to cherish for years to come, book Pat today! The pictures speak for themselves and she is worth every penny and more!Sent on 12/02/2019

Pat is amazing!
Pat was the photographer for our engagement photos and wedding and we were nothing but impressed by her (and her second shooter, Cricket!). We loved every photo we've received from her, and she was so great to work with. She knew how to direct us to get the best shots and had so many great ideas for locations and different shots that she knew we'd love. She was also very easy to get in touch with (even when she was in Italy) when we had questions or just wanted to keep her informed on changes to the wedding. Day of, she was on time, excited, and helped us stay on track with timing. I cannot recommend her enough!Sent on 09/05/2019

Pat cori was our dream photographer
From the first time I met and worked with Pat professionally, I knew I wanted her to be my photographer if I ever got married. Pat has a way of capturing such natural moments of connection - not posed and awkward - and making them look magical! We wanted to go ice skating for some of our engagement photos (for sentimental reasons, not because we're good skaters), and she agreed without hesitation! There were many other people on the ice and we were trying so hard not to fall, but you'd never know that in our photos! Not only is the quality of her photos remarkable, but she captures REAL emotions and real moments. On top of that, she's so fun to work with, and makes you feel like you've always known her! I love Pat, and would recommend her to any couple who wants their photos to truly capture their unique connection.Sent on 10/24/2018

Pat and Jason were a joy to work with by making the posing pictures naturally fun and capturing fun candid photos throughout the night! They were very efficient and creative throughout the entire day and were very flexible for photos/poses I requested on the fly. They were a blast to work with and very attentive. Thank you for beautifully capturing our big day!Sent on 01/02/2018

I can't sing enough praises for Pat Cori! We booked an A La Carte package - an engagement session, bridal portraits, and 8 hours of coverage the day of.Sent on 12/26/2017
The engagement session was a great way for Jimmy and I to get comfortable with Pat and being photographed. Pat gave us tips on posing, how to relax in front of the camera, as well as answered a lot of questions we had about other vendors and day of questions.
The bridal session was a much needed and enjoyable "dress rehearsal". Pat again gave pointers on posing and moving in my wedding dress. Looking back, I really enjoy having these portraits since the day of was very scheduled there wasn't a lot of extra time to have such in depth portraits done.
In addition to the a la carte package, I hired her separately for a boudoir shoot and album. Pat was amazing - making me feel comfortable, with creative and tasteful setups/poses. The finished album was incredible. I gave Jimmy the album the day of, to open when he was getting ready. The images of Jimmy opening and seeing the album are some of my favorites. This is one of my top 5 wedding memories.
Then, my very favorite, the day of! The images are incredible, I've been obsessed with them for months! From start to finish - getting ready, venue details, catering images, first look, family portraits, the ceremony, the reception, the exit. All amazing photographs that we'll love for forever!
Pat is so professional, and worked tremendously with our other vendors. By the time the wedding was over Pat wasn't just a hired photographer, she was a friend. Jimmy and I loved the whole experience, we would without a doubt hire Pat again!

The minute I met Pat, I knew she would photograph our wedding. When you first speak with her, the passion she has for her profession is palpable. It is obvious she is much more than a photographer -- Pat is a true artist who cares immensely about the quality and style of her work, while ensuring she connects with each and every one of her clients. She really cares about getting to know you and making you feel as comfortable as possible. Plus, Pat likes to keep things fun, light, and more impromptu! She had her hands full with my (now) husband, who is definitely not a fan of the camera, but even managed to get him relaxed enough for a smile or two :) I highly recommend buying a package with an engagement session (even if you have previously had pictures made or did not intend to do such) because it gives you a chance (& Pat) to see how you react in front of the camera - plus, more time with Pat before the big day! I highly recommend Pat to anyone in Roanoke and the surrounding areas of SW VA. Our day wouldn't have been the same without her & Lindsey (who was an awesome addition and just as easy to work with) -- I can't wait to see our wedding pictures!Sent on 10/18/2016

Pat did my bridal portraits and we had so much fun! When it rained on the day of my bridal portraits, I was bummed that we wouldn't be able to do the outdoor shoot I originally wanted, but it didn't phase her. I should have trusted her because she did amazing things with the indoor lighting and angles. She immediately made me feel at ease, which made my pictures look so much more natural. We are so pleased with the way the photos turned out and would highly recommend her!Sent on 05/02/2016

It was shortly after getting engaged that I discovered Pat Cori Photography and I was immediately interested in working with the woman behind the camera, Patricia C. Giovannini. I didn’t need a reference or prior experience, her work spoke for itself. When I contacted Patricia for the first time I loved that she offered to meet with me and my fiance for coffee to get to know each other and see her portfolio. My fiance and I had such good vibes after meeting with Pat that we booked Pat Cori Photography immediately even though our wedding was over a year away! Between then and our wedding day, Pat worked with us for our engagement photoshoot (which was SO fun) and was more than willing to provide us planning advice from a photographer’s perspective (such as setting a ceremony time to get the perfect lighting). By the time our wedding day arrived, Pat was more than our photographer, she was a friend we could trust to capture all the special moments on our big day. I’ll tell one small story to illustrate her dedication to her clients. A couple days before our wedding day the forecast was showing pretty much 100% chance of rain. No matter how hard I tried not to care, I was feeling pretty gloomy about that fact. It wasn’t until speaking to Pat that my spirits were lifted. She said to me and my fiance, “If you all are willing to play in the rain, I’ll play too!”. The evening of our wedding, my husband and I slipped away with Pat to take shots of just the two of us. Pat got absolutely soaked but captured the most stunning picture of us kissing under an umbrella in the rain with candlelight cascading beside us. Patricia is more than a wedding photographer, she is a brilliant artist. I recommend her and Pat Cori Photography unequivocally.Sent on 12/13/2016

Pat Cori is an amazing photographer - her work truly speaks for itself. My father is a photographer, so we were really picky when it came to who we chose. Everything Pat does is truly breathtaking, but don't take my word for it, email her yourself. When I booked her, she let me see the complete work for one the recent weddings she did. I was blown away. My pictures are so beautiful and so professional. Everyone I know has complimented me and told me how surreal the photos are! To top if off, her second shooter, Jason, was so talented and so professional and friendly too! And they showed up precisely on time, stayed the entire ceremony, and took all the shots that we wanted. It took about 3 months to get the photos back after our wedding; it was SO worth the wait. I would pick her again, every time.Sent on 08/12/2016

I am SO happy that I chose Pat Cori to capture my wedding!! Pat is extremely professional, considerate, and hard working.Sent on 07/27/2016
Pat took the time to meet with my fiancé and my girlfriends to really get to know our story. She was so excited to hear about our different cultures and made sure to incorporate the two cultures together.
We originally hired her for our wedding day but then decided we also wanted her to capture some moments from the guy's golf game and the party the night before. We were having so much fun that we asked her to stay an extra hour and she was flexible with us stayed longer to get a few extra shots.
Our wedding day was hectic but Pat was cool and calm and took the time to work around the hectic-ness to capture some amazing pictures.
It actually was a rainy day on our wedding day and I was feeling bummed but Pat reassured me that the gray skies would make for great photos. She was right!!! Our pictures came out absoluteely stunning!
The time and incredible detail that Pat puts into each picture is remarkable. She is worth every penny!
I would highly recommend Pat Cori Photography for your next event!

Wow. I don't even know where to begin with this lady! I first met Pat when I was an event coordinator for a venue in the Roanoke area. From another vendors stand point, hands down the best to work with! So, when it came to booking a photographer for our wedding there were no questions asked--it was definitely going to be her. I had also worked with her other photographers whom are all awesome! After our engagement shoot that was just perfect, my then finance was for sure on board--which he's picky so I knew everything was going be fine. Pat takes the time to make sure she gets everything you want. Our scheduled engagement shoot was 3:30pm-5:30pm--Pat was loving the light so more and more pictures were taken. I decided to purchase her bridal portrait package and it was totally worth it. I needed the pictures ASAP and she was wonderful to work to pick just the right ones. When wedding day came, knowing you have a great photographer can put your mind at total ease. Everything detail, every personal touch, every sentimental item, EVERYTHING is in their hands to make sure its captured--and EVERYTHING was captured just the way it should have been, plus more :) Upon receiving the pictures I happen to be at work. I shut my office door and sat in my chair and literally cried for about 30 minutes. The day of your wedding there is so much going on that you don't get to see some of it, and Pat captured some moments that were just perfect.Sent on 11/20/2015
