Pat Cori Photography - Junebug 1

PAT CORI WAS OUR DREAM PHOTOGRAPHER. From the first time I met and worked with Pat professionally, I knew I wanted her to be my photographer if I ever got married. Pat has a way of capturing such natural moments of connection - not posed and awkward - and making them look magical! We wanted to go ice skating for some of our engagement photos (for sentimental reasons, not because we're good skaters), and she agreed without hesitation! There were many other people on the ice and we were trying so hard not to fall, but you'd never know that in our photos! Not only is the quality of her photos remarkable, but she captures REAL emotions and real moments. On top of that, she's so fun to work with, and makes you feel like you've always known her! I love Pat, and would recommend her to any couple who wants their photos to truly capture their unique connection.

Pat is by far the best photographer I have ever worked favorite thing about Pat is how unique and artistic she is. She is enthusiastic to try something new. She will make you look and feel beautiful, but more than that, her photography will capture/enhance the connection between you and your significant other. Her pictures are unique and entrancing, and she makes you feel 100% comfortable. My husband and I are very awkward when it comes to pictures, but Pat made us feel comfortable. I would be honored to have her do all our family pictures in the future. Pat, thank you for capturing our engagement and wedding pictures. #number1fan #bookhernow

Pat Cori is an amazing photographer - her work truly speaks for itself. My father is a photographer, so we were really picky when it came to who we chose. Everything Pat does is truly breathtaking, but don't take my word for it, email her yourself. When I booked her, she let me see the complete work for one the recent weddings she did. Everyone I know has complimented me and told me how surreal the photos are! To top if off, her second shooter, Jason, was so talented and so professional and friendly too! And they showed up precisely on time, stayed the entire ceremony, and took all the shots that we wanted.


It was shortly after getting engaged that I discovered Pat Cori Photography and I was immediately interested in working with the woman behind the camera, Patricia C. Giovannini. I didn’t need a reference or prior experience, her work spoke for itself. When I contacted Patricia for the first time I loved that she offered to meet with me and my fiance for coffee to get to know each other and see her portfolio. My fiance and I had such good vibes after meeting with Pat that we booked Pat Cori Photography immediately even though our wedding was over a year away!

Pat was the best photographer ever. She felt like a part of the family at the wedding and the reception. She made everyone feel comfortable during all the photos. I would recommend her 100% to everyone.

The minute I met Pat, I knew she would photograph our wedding. When you first speak with her, the passion she has for her profession is palpable. It is obvious she is much more than a photographer -- Pat is a true artist who cares immensely about the quality and style of her work, while ensuring she connects with each and every one of her clients. She really cares about getting to know you and making you feel as comfortable as possible. Plus, Pat likes to keep things fun, light, and more impromptu! I highly recommend buying a package with an engagement session because it gives you a chance (& Pat) to see how you react in front of the camera - plus, more time with Pat before the big day! .
