Born in Golden, BC, Patti has spent most of her life here in the great Canadian Rockies. Settling in the Bow Valley in 1983, Patti began pursuing her passion of all things photography. She started out managing the Banff and Canmore Film Labs for over 13 years. In 1999, she opened her own portrait studio in Canmore that provided a full range of photographic services as well as custom picture framing.

Making the decision to simplify life two years ago, Patti sold the portrait studio and became a valuable part of the Alpine Peak Photography team as their full-time image editor.

Her technical expertise gained in the processing side of the industry, combined with the keen eye of a seasoned photographer, as well as a passion for perfection, shows in her image editing.

Patti is editing with the latest Adobe PhotoShop CS and Portrait Pro Max imaging software. Each and every image is checked and edited for colour correction, retouching, cropping, acne removal, makeup fix, removal of obstructions and portrait retouching.

Patti works very hard behind the scenes to make every wedding couple look their very best! Once the editing is complete (about 6 weeks after your wedding day), Patti will upload your images to our web site gallery and burn a USB card that will be sent out to you in the mail.
