Hello! I'm Patty. ♡
I'm 27 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, go to the gym, practise yoga, cuddle with doggos, and eat (dominate) Japanese food 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 recently been photographing and filming in Fiji, Greece, France, and Spain! I've also been to California, India, and the Philippines to capture some beautiful weddings + love.
Here are my dream destinations. This past season, I was in Europe, Fiji, and Bali to photograph and film some pretty wonderful humans! ♡
