It's wonderful to
have you here!
Hi, I'm Patricia,
I'm a Senior Portrait, Wedding & Elopement photographer/filmmaker. (I also write screenplays -- but that's a different story and an entirely different website). I live in western Montana but am happy to travel nearly anywhere to your event, document your beautiful life and help preserve your memories with care and artistry.
I love photographing young adults for any reason: portraits, headshots, modeling, lifestyle, etc. Young adults are simply fun to photograph because they are filled with hope and optimism! Hope and optimism makes everyone of any age naturally beautiful and photogenic. Senior year, is a true milestone in one's life. For that person, everything and anything is possible. Filled with dreams, goals, excitement, and perhaps trepidation — senior photos capture who the person has become and whom they hope yet to be.
Regarding weddings and elopement -- I've been married to my husband for 30 years. We eloped on a very hot night in July-- at exactly 11:30 p.m. -- in Las Vegas. Trust me when I say this, the photographs and video we have from our wedding are truly priceless. Sadly, we have only a few photos from that night and a very weak "video" captured by the wedding officiant herself. Still, I'm grateful for what we have. I'm grateful our children can see who their parents once were, and it's an important memory for my husband and me as well.
At the time we were married, we didn't know how much photos and video would matter to us later in life. Recently, a cousin sent us a short amateur video someone captured at an "after we eloped" party. It is the only document of the day I have. I made certain to copy and send it to duplicate hard drives and to our kids for preservation's sake.
If I had only known then...
But you know. You won't regret turning the pages of your album or watching a beautiful film of your wedding day with your children or grandchildren. You'll be amazed -- and likely a bit choked up. :`)
Even if you choose someone else not me to be the one to capture your memories -- Do it.
Get copies of the video. Get prints and albums of your wedding, your engagement, your elopement, or another event. You'll be glad you did.
It is truly a once-in-a-lifetime moment. Cherish it always.
Life is lived in the moment.
A timeless photograph, or film of your once-in-a-lifetime event becomes more precious with each year and each generation that follows.
Your memory becomes your family's precious, priceless history.
I'm super excited to hear about your plans!
