Working with me is like working with an old friend on your wedding day....making you two the most comfortable you can be with a camera in your face is what I do best. Leading up to the wedding I can be as hands on or as hands off as you want.  I am more than happy to help with everything or just show up and make romantic magical images on your wedding day.  All my packages include the digital images and I encourage all my clients to order a wedding album.

Anniversary and engagement sessions are so much fun!  It is the perfect excuse for a date night or a trip to Maine!  I also encourage my destination Maine wedding couples to do engagement photos with me in their home state!  Getting a change of scenery or a taste of home for these photos is the best!

Patti and her entire team were absolutely amazing! She went above and beyond to ensure that we had every picture that I had requested prior to our wedding day. She is kind, genuine, and someone I now consider a friend because of such a successful vendor - client transaction. I wouldn't use any other photographer, ever. Kivalo is top notch!!!! The best of the best. All of our family and friends LOVE our photos and won't stop commenting on the quality of them. Thank you sooo much!

I cannot sing Patricia's praises enough. When it comes to her incredible talent, I think the photos speak for themselves. But what the photos don't capture is that aside from being talented, she is also very organized and responsive, which made working with her throughout the entirety of the planning process an absolute joy. She captured moments that we didn't even know existed. Everything from the angles to the lighting in these photos was just so perfect.

Thank you so much for the beautiful wedding photos!  We absolutely fell in love with them.  We've had a hard time deciding which ones we want to frame because ALL of them are so gorgeous!  You have an amazing eye and we really enjoyed our time with you!  Thank you for making our day special!

I had the absolute best experience working with Patty from Kivalo Photography. She was very professional, helpful, and easy to work with. Throughout my engagement she offered helpful tips which made my wedding day seamless and stress-free. Looking back on my wedding day we were able to get all the group shots we wanted and more. Worth every penny!

I cannot say enough good things about working with Patricia. My husband tends not to LOVE taking pictures, and yet she was able to keep him smiling and having a good time while capturing pictures from our engagement shoot to our wedding day that we both absolutely love.

From the engagement photo session through the last dance, Patricia was a wonderful addition to our special time. She was an amazing resource throughout the day and an incredible calming presence. The photo's captured genuine emotions and came out flawless.

Being a hybrid (digital & old school film) photographer, I love the soft and romantic feeling a film image provokes.  Film has made me a better photographer and really forces me to perfect an image before the shutter is clicked.  It offers my couples ethereal imagery of their wedding that is hard to duplicate.  I transition seamlessly between digital and film so my clients get the best of both worlds.  

Hybrid Photography 


Photographs are meant to be experienced.  Some of my fondest childhood memories involve rummaging through old boxes of photos. What would I uncover? Albums are the experience that your children and grandchildren will have with your memories. They will flip the pages and debate who was who. They will laugh at the fashions and marvel at how much they look like you.   

My photography style is romantic & connected. It is important to be relaxed and have fun on your wedding day and I make that happen through snuggles, laughter, movement, and the occasional furry friend bringing doggy kisses. Many of my clients say I am easy to be around, helpful, and that I just feel like another one of their friends. I am so job is amazing it brings me happiness and beauty every weekend.
