megan + ernie {the portraits}

And now for the portraits. Ernie gazing, Megan beaming, and some yummy Santa Barbara sunshine… I think these next two images are becoming sort of a signature set for me.  I love the cheek kiss, and I love processing them in this vintagey-sepia-love. Love the sunsets in Santa Barbara! Michelle drew this cute heart in…

The night is young, the skies are clear
And if you want to go walkin’, dear
It’s delightful, it’s delicious, it’s de-lovely

megan + ernie {the ceremony}

The first time we met in person was on their wedding day, yet they felt so familiar… Megan and Ernie are wonderful people… truly lovely.  Their wedding day was beautiful, and seemed to flow so easy without stress and complications (minus one ornery zipper on  a bridesmaid’s dress). I’ll start of this post with some…

sara, owen, will, and charlotte {just a peek}

I’ve been living in Central New York for about two years now.  Yesterday, however, was the first time I drove to Ithaca; and already, I can’t wait to go back.  The drive was filled with amazing rural landscapes, which I hope to photograph in the springtime, if not sooner. I didn’t have time {to stop…

Maybe that’s just from my own personal experience! :)

introducing my amazing sister {and new studio manager!}

I’ve been in business for myself for about fifteen years… give or take.  Throughout all of those years, I’ve been the girl wearing ALL of the hats… photographer (that is my favorite one), marketer, accountant, errand girl, editor, etc.  If you have ever been in business for yourself, you know there are A LOT of…

Beth - Thanks for the awesome introduction :) . I am so excited to be working with you! You have amazing skills as a photographer and with me working on some of the other things, you’ll be able to concentrate on the things you’re best at! Like you always say, “Two Pattersons are better than one!” (Of course usually we’re just trying to open the ketchup bottle).

Anonymous - It looks like you guys will make a great team!

b’ville {dipped in gold}

The colors of fall here are so amazing… I mean super aaaaammaaaaazzzziinnnggg! The contrast of being in sunny southern California one day, and back in New York’s fall the next is striking.  It feels like I have on rose colored glasses… but I don’t!  The colors against the bright blue sky are simply breathtaking!   Well,…
