Patrick Aalto

So much more than a nature photographer

With 30 years of experience photographing weddings, adventure and anything outside, I have developed a unique style and approach to working with people. I first fell in love with photography in 1994.  Nature is my primary photographic love, and to be able to photograph people doing their thing outside is very rewarding.  I also enjoy seeing people share with friends and family the love they have for one-another.  I am creative and chase the light and the action in order to create images of people as they are in the places they love.      

Weddings & Engagement

I had the joy of making photographs for my first wedding job in 1999 and have shared in over 20 weddings in four States.  I will be more laid-back than your average wedding photographer, and I really strive to connect with the people and location, in order to capture your experience beautifully.  


Adventure & Sports

Being outside is what makes me happy.  Doing cool things, and being with friends doing cool things outside is even better.  As an active rock climber, surfer, underwater photographer, scuba diver, skateboarder, snowboarder, hiker, backpacker, stand-up paddle-boarder and site-seer, I live to be outside and I understand how to photograph people in their favorite element.
