Hello! I'm Patty. I'm learning more and more about myself everyday, and this is what I know to be true.

I'm 26 years old, and I'm a constant work in progress. When I'm not holding my camera or editing, I like to paint, read books, sing in the car, practice bikram yoga, shake my booty in Zumba, and eat (dominate) Korean BBQ or sushi with friends and family.

When I shoot, I feel so alive. Pursuing photography full-time is a dream that turned into my reality. Everyday, I am grateful for the life that I've been given, and I endeavour to make every moment matter.

This is why I love to capture the soft, warm, and genuine moments; the deep connection between people. I like to see who you really are: your heart, your love, and your joy. I truly believe that there is so much adventure within you, and I'm here, doing what I do best: capturing the beauty and the moments that unfold. You are free to be who you are; to do anything you need to do and, simply, be yourself.

My task is to ensure the frames I take are honest, authentic, and lasting. I want you to be comfortable in your own skin, and have memories to treasure for lifetimes ahead. I also get really excited when couples are willing to get playful and audacious and go on adventures and explore sunsets and extraordinary locations with me. I encourage you to get in touch, I would love to hear from you!

I'm based in Auckland, New Zealand--originally from Manila, Philippines--and happy to travel anywhere around the world to be with you on your special day. I've already been to California to photograph a wedding, India, and the Philippines as well! Here are my dream destinations. Soon, I will be heading back to LA, then Europe, and Fiji!
