The intimate moments shared between loved ones, the tears welling in the eyes of a father, the thoughtful details and the promise of forever between two people - ten years of doing this work and every time feels like the first. It is an honor to work with the couples that I do in documenting the start of their forever. I can't wait to be there for yours.

Please inquire for more details and to discuss the best fit for you.

I have realized that most people search their whole life looking for that one thing that sets their heart on fire. I found mine and everything I do in this art is fueled with that passion. I love what I do, and even though I was not born with a camera in my hands, I needed time to see life with my own eyes first. Living that experience has allowed me to see the magic that exists between two people in love. With that, came a realization that love is tangible through the medium of photography.

QUESTIONS                 ANSWERS

Q: How far in advance do I need to book you as my photographer?

A: Usually I book a year out. But with that being said shoot me your date and maybe you will get lucky and the date is still open.

Q: How may weddings do you shoot?

A: I take limited weddings to maintain a fresh and creative artistic documentation of your wedding day. This is not just my job but it is very personal to me to create beautiful images for you to keep for a lifetime! PLUS, I kind of like my family so balance is something I always strive for.

Q: First look or no first look?

A: I love to talk to B & G about first looks. I know traditionally, in the old days, you wait until you walk down the aisle. But since we all are planning our weddings around sunset, and I cannot hold the sun up, then to get those beautiful light and ethereal images we must cooperate with mother nature. To be honest a first look is actually whom it is suppose to be about, which is you and your partner. Also, just think, after the wedding you can actually hit cocktail hour and actually ENJOY your guest that have traveled so far to be a part of your day!

Q: Do you work with weddings planners and if so, do you think they are important to hire? Also, do you assist with the timeline?

A: Yes I do work with planners often. The venue coordinator has her hands full of other tasks to make sure the day runs smoothly and has no time for the finer details. A wedding planner has so much more experience then the first time bride There is a flow to your wedding day and when it is planned perfect the day just flows with beauty and grace! I do work with them in regards to the timeline and I value their option as much as they do mine. It really makes for the PERFECT team to pull off a PERFECT day!!!

Q: What do you think is the perfect timeline?

A: I always say your day, your rules. so there is not such thing as a perfect timeline. with that being said you can click this link to get an example of a timeline. (I have a pdf for this) or say click here for your complmentary timeline

Q: What is your style of photography and what sets you apart from other photographers?

A: I really like to classify my style of photography in a few different words organic, raw and romantic. My style is a little more photojournalistic and less traditional. I love to let the day unfold naturally because truly my one goal is for you to look back at an image and remember what you felt at that VERY moment! THEN I know I did my job!

Q: What does a hybrid photographer mean?

A: Because film has made a come back and creates a beautiful images you will see me on the day of your wedding with both a digital and film camera

Q: How did you get into photography?

A: I really wish I could give you some beautiful story that starts of by “every since I was a little girl I had a camera in my hands” but that is NOT my story. It was not until after I was married that I truly did not want the feeling of capturing moments to end…so my Husband bought me a camera and I thanked my lucky stars that God allowed me to find my passion in this lifetime! I truly believe when you find the spot where you belong you hit the ground running, and that is exactly what I did and have never looked back!

Q: We love your work, how much do you charge for wedding day coverage and can you customize a package?

A: Absolutely! I would love the chance to customize a package that fits your needs.  Reach out to me here.

Q: After the wedding how long do the images take to edit and when can we expect them? Also, what is the process of how we view them?

A: Depending on the season typically your images take 4-8 weeks to edit and complete. Then all images go on an online gallery and professional lab for you to view/and or order from (including guests). Then I also add some of my favorite images on my blog as well as social media for you to share!

Q: How many images are delivered?

A: Well that can depend on the time I am contracted to photograph. But a general wedding of 8 hrs can usually yield 800-1000 edited images.

Q: How do I purchase prints and products?

A: It is quite easy! You and friends and family can purchase directly through the gallery.

Q: How do I book Katina Patriquin for my day?

A: Click here and send me a note! I would love to meet and chat over coffee and talk about all the amazing details you are planning for your wedding! I actually leave with visions in my head! If we are a good match then I will send a contract and require a deposit to hold the date. Ta-da I am BOOKED!

Q: If I purchase an album how does the design process work and do I get to pick the images for my album?

A: Yes, I am a firm believer that even though I document the day it is still YOUR story! After the images are uploaded to the online gallery you can create a folder of the images you want in your album to tell your story!

Q: Do you have an assistant/2nd shooter that comes to the wedding as well?

A: Yes I do! He or she acts as my second shooter when I physically cannot be two places at one and acts as an assistant as well! They are highly skilled photographers and also a great asset to my team and success!

Q: Are the digital downloads included and how do I receive them?

A: Yes, all delivered digital files are included in all collections. I recommend loading them on several computers and also storing a flash drive in a safe spot! As far as printing them…well you get what you pay for! I ALWAYS recommend a professional lab.

Q: Do you accept or work off of a "shot list"?

A: I do ask you for a list of people and groupings for family portraits. It makes the process go smooth an enjoyable! As far as for example "Pinterest shots" I always say to brides I want to photograph YOUR day and not duplicate anothers. That is the beauty in planning your day and seeing it unfold from behind my camera!

Q: What if we need more hours then contracted?

A: Yes, you can always check with me and we can always add more hours for an additional fee.

Q: If the collection I invest in comes with an engagement session what can I expect?

A: l love the engagement session for so many reasons I love to get familiar with your personalities and get a feel for the love you share together. Normally the e-session is 1-1.5 hours and 2 wardrobe changes. One more casual and one dressier. I have several locations but I really like to brainstorm with you to really pick a unique spot to take your photos. I do have some destinations brides that cannot shoot the e-session and that is not problem, something about the suspense of meeting you for the first time on your wedding day makes me giddy to capture all the details of your day. I can get a feel of the person you are through the details you have chosen.

Q: Do you have insurance?

A: I can provide that certificate to your venue if they require it.

Q: Do you photograph destination weddings?

A: I spend most my time and work between the Central Coast of California and Arizona. love seeing different areas and getting inspired by the different surroundings! Please email me for details.

Q: Do I pay sales tax?

A: Yes, I am required by the state to charge sales tax

Q: If you could offer me one piece of advice on hiring a wedding photographer what would it be?

A: I always say that photographer is very subjective….there is no right or wrong the only true judgment is how it makes you feel. With that being said two things come to my mind when I am asked this question 1. Make sure you are comfortable with the photographer if not it will show through in your photos and the next piece of advice was one that is not related to photography but something I personally did for my wedding …..STOP take a few seconds throughout the day to take a deep breathe and take it all in! Make a conscious decision to do this because the day goes so fast …and if for one moment you could stop time…this would be the time.

Katina is an amazing photographer! Great at giving direction she made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera, and she's great at capturing those perfect moments; I would highly recommend Katina and her crew! I love looking through our photographs and re-living the moment!! Thank you, Katina!

Katina is wonderful! I couldn’t be more pleased with our choice to have her photograph our wedding. She is incredibly talented and has such an amazing eye!

In addition to her incredible talent, she is also a delight to work with. She made the entire process as smooth as possible, and we truly enjoyed working with her.

I can't say enough amazing things about Katina. She is the epitome of a true professional and her team was equally awesome. Her cool, calm, collected attitude made my wedding day a lot less stressful and she was so great wrangling together all of my friends and family to make sure we stayed on time. Katina really went above and beyond my expectations and I would love to work with her again someday!

I can't say enough about Katina! She made me and my husband feel so at ease on our big day. Every person who see's our photos say they look straight out of a magazine. She truly captured our day in ways we would've never expected and I'm eternally grateful for her and her work. Now we can relive our wedding day with the moments she captured. I would without a doubt recommend her for any event or special day you would like to capture.
