Patty has been a Professional Maui wedding photographer here in Hawaii since 1985. In that time she has had the privilege of shooting thousands of beautiful Maui weddings and family portraits, plus many years of professional and amateur sports. She truly enjoys her work, and feels blessed to be able to make a living at what she loves.
"Not many people can be working on the beach, in the most beautiful place in the world, can they! And I make it my first priority to make sure that all my clients receive the most flattering, highest quality photo's within my power, while making them feel truly relaxed".
Most people feel a little uncomfortable having their picture taken. That's why Patty likes to have fun with her clients, so as to take that edge off. By the time the photo shoot is over, you feel like you've know her for months.
Some of her published works includes, Outdoor Magazine, Sports Illustrated, Hawaiian Air Ticket Folders and Maui Magazine. She has also shot for the Women's Kemper Open, PGA Senior Tour, Bank of Hawaii, Maui News, Lahaina News, Hawaiian Canoe Racing Association. And has her works in galleries here on Maui.
Patty is also available for professional family portraits and group photography. Being a great lover of children, Patty is involved with "A Keiki's Dream", a non-profit organization which sets up dreams for Maui's children in crisis. For more info. on "A Keike's Dream" please email her direct.
Born and raised in Chicago, she moved to Aspen, Colorado in 1968 and then to Maui in 1984. She now resides in South Maui with her 3 dogs Sheba, Thunder and Buster along with her 2 birds Pickles and Pepper.
Patty is a self-taught Professional Photographer, learning everything she could along the way. Which goes to show you that you do make your own world.
Thanks for your time and hope to hear from you soon.
