Hello! I'm Patty. ♡
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, learn Spanish, shake my booty in Zumba, practice bikram yoga, cuddle with puppies and kitties, and eat (dominate) Korean BBQ with friends and family.
I am passionate about authenticity, mental health, self-care, and travel.

When I shoot, I feel alive. Pursuing photography full-time was a dream that turned into 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 warm, gentle, 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 my best work comes from capturing beauty and moments that unfold.
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 been to California, India, and the Philippines to photograph some beautiful weddings + love.
Here are my dream destinations. This season, I will be in Europe, Fiji, and Bali to photograph and film some pretty wonderful humans! ♡
