  • I can't say enough about how pleased I am to have had Patty as our wedding photographer. Right from the start initiating contact with Patty as a potential vendor, I was immediately comfortable with her approach to wedding photography. I was so impressed with the materials that she sent us after entering into contract with her- they helped to ensure that I was prepared on the wedding day and also helped to set expectations for the flow of the day. Patty is very comfortable to be around and blended right in. She was calm but also firm to make sure that we checked all the boxes of what we wanted to capture from the day. Her presence actually helped keep the drama and stress at bay which is something I didn't even know I would need. We just got our gallery of photos this week and I'm reliving all the special moments over and over again, as well as getting to see some special moments that I didn't get to firsthand experience which is exciting. I would absolutely recommend Kivalo Photo... Read more

  • Patty was an excellent photographer that we would highly recommend. She is polite, professional, no-nonsense, and will make sure that you get every photo you want at your big day. We weren't able to meet before the day due to our being located so far away, but she touched base frequently to check in on progress and planning, get to know each other before we spent the actual day together, and ask for our insight on what was most important to us day of so she could be sure to get those images. She was also helpful in making recommendations regarding sequencing of photo events to ensure the best amount of photo time and time enjoying our event. Seperately, Patty suggested some great other vendors based on her experience at other weddings, which was so helpful. We highly recommend Patty / Kivalo!

  • I booked Kivalo Photography because Patty had done my brother's wedding a few years prior, and I had loved her work. (In fact I said, "someday when I get married, I want a photographer to make me look this good on my wedding day!"). It was the best choice ever - Patty is fun and thoughtful and creative, and just a pleasure to work with. She gave us this amazing magazine about what to expect from wedding photography (I have never done this before, so "here's what I do for rain, here's what I worry about and not you, here's what you can think about and plan for" was SO helpful). Then, the day of, she came early and got all the details shots and scouted out photo locations on the property that I never even knew were there. Throughout the staged shots and ceremony, Patty rolled with our challenges (we are goofy and we talk a lot; we made a last-minute decision to move our October ceremony outside, literally as I was putting my dress on). You don't realize how much time you spend wi... Read more

  • Patty photographed our October 2018 wedding and I highly recommend her. When my fiance and I decided we wanted to get married in the fall in New England, we knew we had to act quickly to book a photographer -- it was the second vendor we booked after only the venue. In looking for a photographer, I was drawn to Patty's romantic and timeless style. Her photos are more than just images, they tell the story of the emotions felt in the moment that they were captured. We booked Patty about ten months in advance and throughout the time leading up to our wedding she sent periodic messages to check in, which were helpful to make sure we were on track and prepared for the big day. On the day of, we didn't have a coordinator and I can't say how helpful she was in corralling everyone. We had a decent sized bridal party (ten all together) and Patty was so quick and efficient with all the portraits. Again, we had a limited window for family portraits following our ceremony in our Church and ... Read more

  • When selecting a photographer I wanted to make sure they would be a good personality to have around while I was stressed/managing a lot of personalities. Patty was the PERFECT selection. She arrived during breakfast just to scope out all the best spots to take pictures. Then she hung around to exercise her magical moment capturing ninja skills. She got to know us via social media and various surveys she sent before the wedding in order to make sure she knew what would be important to us on our big day. She captured everything I could have wanted and more. Everyone from the bridal party, to my family, to guests on the dance floor LOVED her style and the way she coordinated people. We have had a few hang sessions just flipping through the pictures she took reliving the entire weekend. She was fabulous from start to finish.

  • If you want stunning, artistic, photos that capture every feeling that you have on your wedding day, then Patricia is definitely the photographer that you you need to hire! From planning, to payment, to managing everyone on the actual wedding day, she is extremely organized and has a process in place for everything. Patricia, and her team, are top notch and you will absolutely love how efficient they are on your wedding day. I wanted to get through formal portraits fairly quickly as I valued the candid shots more and I couldn't be happier with the photos we ended up with, both formal and candid AND we still had time to attend part of our cocktail hour without doing a First Look. I was told that wasn't possible, but I knew that she would make it happen! I still can't stop going through our wedding photos, and I love all of them! The beauty and emotion captured in them, takes me right back to our wedding day. Working with Patricia has been such a joy, I have no doubt that we will conti... Read more

  • If I had a dollar for every person that has come up to me after the wedding to tell me how great our photographer was, we could have an hour longer of open bar. Seriously, from the first phone call to the delivery of photos, Patricia was nothing short of incredible. She gave great customer service up front, had wonderful and engaging surveys along the way that made us feel like she had a real idea of who we were as a couple and what our vision was. On the day itself she was organized, professional, and kicked butt. My new husband had a rowdy group of groomsmen and she handled them with ease. I can't believe how reasonable her price was given all the time, effort, and skill she gave us. You'd be crazy to look anywhere else.

  • I had the absolute best experience working with Patty from Kivalo Photography. She was very professional, helpful, and easy to work with. Throughout my engagement she offered helpful tips which made my wedding day seamless and stress-free. Looking back on my wedding day we were able to get all the group shots we wanted and more. Worth every penny!

  • As MOB I could not have been more pleased with Patty/Kivalo Photography. She was professional, organized, and went above and beyond to make our family's day stress free from beginning to end. Corralling a wedding part of 21 is no easy feat but Patty did it with a swiftness and humor. The pics were delivered quickly and are beautiful. I highly recommend this photographer.

  • Patti and her entire team were absolutely amazing! She went above and beyond to ensure that we had every picture that I had requested prior to our wedding day. She is kind, genuine, and someone I now consider a friend because of such a successful vendor - client transaction. I wouldn't use any other photographer, ever. Kivalo is top notch!!!! The best of the best. All of our family and friends LOVE our photos and won't stop commenting on the quality of them. Thank you sooo much!

  • I had AJ as my videographer for my wedding and he was awesome! I really loved that he respected my photographer so much and never interfered with what she had planned. They worked together really well! AJ made things easy and stress-free, and even on the dance floor I could see he was capturing all the important moments on video. I can't wait to see the video!!!!

  • I cannot say enough good things about working with Patricia. My husband tends not to LOVE taking pictures, and yet she was able to keep him smiling and having a good time while capturing pictures from our engagement shoot to our wedding day that we both absolutely love. We had large wedding parties (9 bridesmaids, 15 groomsmen, 2 ring bearers, a flower girl, and 2 dogs)! Yet,she was able to keep everyone organized and focused. We now have so many pictures that will help us keep memories of our wedding day forever. She is completely worth every penny. Thank you, Patricia! :-)

  • The best wedding photographer around! Patty was so incredible throughout the entire planning process and during the day of our wedding, I cannot say enough good things about her! She was very responsive to messages (which I appreciated being busy and trying to plan a wedding!). We first met at our engagement photo session, and immediately I felt comfortable with her and loved her style. She is very laid back but also is able to give direction so that shooting time is use efficiently and catching you at your best. The day of our wedding, she was around while we were still getting hair and make-up finished taking photos, but also looking our for ME making sure my hair looked perfect and the way I wanted it, making sure my make-up was done just right. We did first look photos and most of our group/wedding party shots before the ceremony (which she encouraged and I am SO glad that we did). Patty made sure to give directions clearly so people knew where to stand and what to do, which I rea... Read more

  • Patty is amazing. She is kind, talented, and captured our wedding beautifully. Her presence was like having another good friend around during our celebrations. She helped us enjoy the day and take it all in. The day flew by quicker than anything I could have ever imagined. So grateful to have our day so well documented so we can live it over and over again through our photos.
