I was recommended to Patti after a few friends had booked her for their upcoming mitzvahs. Upon our first meeting, I could already see how much she loves what she does and was truly excited to be a part of our upcoming event. Patti's prices were very reasonable, in fact, much lower than the other photographers I had researched. As the event drew closer, Patti was a delight to work with throughout the months ahead. She was always available when we had questions and we trusted her opinions highly as she sees so many b'nai mitzvahs each year. The poster photo shoot turned out beautiful, and our guest book was exactly what we had wanted. It was truly special to see the relationship she established with our daughter and how they quickly became pals! When the big weekend arrived, Patti was just amazing. Our temple photo shoot, was actually fun and Patti put everyone in the family at ease. So many of them commented to us how great she was. She was there to capture all of the special moments of the party and we even had pictures in hand by the Tuesday after the event! Our album was quickly ordered, and arrived just a few weeks later and is just gorgeous from cover to cover. Days after the album arrived, I booked Patti for our son's bar mitzvah in 2012! I can't imagine having another event without her!! ... and I mean every word! JULIE
Working with Patti is an exceptional experience!! We are getting ready to use her for our 3rd mitzvah. Patti finds a way to get all of my children to smile and look very natural. She is able to capture shots where everyone in the photo looks good (or she can make them look good with her editing)!! There are always an enormous amount of photos to choose from and every moment is captured. Patti goes out of her way to make working with her easy and convenient. Patti's artistic and creative skills are demonstrated in the amazing one-of-a-kind albums that are custom designed with your needs/desires/style in mind. In addition, Patti is a wonderful resource with great recommendations!! My family loves Patti and I love working with her - one less thing I have to worry about! I used the green screen for my son's Bar Mitzvah and we were thrilled with the pricing, product and CD of pics at the end.Hillary Saban
"patti did an awesome job at both my kids' mitzvahs. She is so much fun to work with! She even got my very serious son to smile for his sign in picture!!!! If she wasn't a friend before, she will definitely be one after you work with her!!!!"
Patti~ YOU ARE THE BEST! I was so impressed with you at a friends Bar Mitzvah, before I even saw any of your pictures, that I just had to have you for Matthew’s Bar Mitzvah Photographer. You were so accommodating...came to our house to take pictures for the sign in poster, came to the Temple on Thursday for pictures with the Rabbi and Cantor and got pictures at the party of everyone I asked you to. You even put up with my crazy family during our “family photo shoot” before the party! Our party was crazy with Whirly ball, Laser Tag and the Traditional aspects - you didn’t miss a beat. You become part of the party and guests don’t even realize that you are there. When I noticed that my dad and aunt were having a quiet conversation, I asked you to take a picture and your response was, “already got it”. You just don’t miss a trick! I LOVE the album and have gotten compliments on it every time someone looks at it. My parents have 2 collages of pictures that you made that they hang proudly on their family room wall and get compliments galore! You were the first call I made when I got Scotty’s Bar Mitzvah date for 2012! I can’t wait to work with you again. Marci Lasaure
From the moment I met with Patti, I knew that I found a flexible and creative photographer and a new friend. She answered all my questions along the way, and many of them were not even about photography, but about other decisions that I had to make when planning my first Mitzvah. She was patient and always smiling. When I saw the finished album, I not only loved it. Patti is not one of the expensive Atlanta photographers, but you would never know it by looking at my album. We consider Patti to be our family photographer, I am looking forward to working with Patti for a third time when my daughter has her Bat Mitzvah in 2012.Marci Louza
