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

I'm 25 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 before me. 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, recently India, and the Philippines again! Here are my dream destinations.
