Patty Wells: Atlanta Wedding Photographer

Patricia Wells Photography: Capturing the joy of your wedding day!

I’m Patty Wells, the heart and soul behind Patricia Wells Photography, based in the vibrant city of Atlanta, Georgia. My passion for photography knows no bounds, and I am thrilled to document love stories across the South and Southeastern USA, from the sunny beaches of Florida to the rolling hills of Tennessee, and beyond to Texas, South Carolina, Kentucky, and more.


Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, and I am dedicated to capturing every precious moment with a friendly and enthusiastic touch. With a keen eye for detail and a knack for blending into the background, I aim to document your day as it naturally unfolds, creating beautiful, timeless images.

Wedding Day Coverage
Getting Ready / Preparations

The excitement and anticipation of getting ready is a magical time, filled with emotional and candid moments. I love to capture the bride with her parents, grandparents, and bridesmaids as they prepare for the day ahead, showcasing the intricate details of the dress, jewelry, and bouquet. Similarly, I focus on the groom with his family and groomsmen, highlighting the finer details with James Bond-style shots of ties and cufflinks.


During the ceremony, I strive to be unobtrusive, capturing the solemnity and joy of the occasion. From the procession to the vows, the exchange of rings, and the first kiss, I document each moment with care. My approach ensures that the true essence of your ceremony is preserved, whether it’s a quick ten-minute affair or a traditional hour-long service.


Formal portraits are an essential part of any wedding day. I work efficiently to photograph family groups and the entire wedding party, allowing everyone to quickly join the reception and start celebrating. With fun, candid portraits of the wedding party and intimate, stress-free moments for the newlyweds, I ensure that these images reflect the joy and love of the day.


The reception is a time for celebration and joy, and my goal is to capture the lively atmosphere. From the first dance to the cake cutting, toasts, and candid moments on the dance floor, I document the festivities with a photojournalistic style. My images highlight the decor, the laughter, and the heartfelt interactions, creating a comprehensive visual story of your reception.

Destination Dreams

While I am based in Atlanta, my love for travel means I am always excited to photograph weddings in new and beautiful locations. I dream of capturing love stories in Switzerland, Germany, Italy, Greece, Hawai’i, and other tropical paradises. No destination is too far, and I am always ready for the next adventure.

Signature Shots

Some of my favorite moments to capture include the groom and his groomsmen in a “cool” Reservoir Dogs-style shot and candid interactions in the dressing room, like a mother helping the bride with her jewelry or a father assisting the groom with his jacket. These unique touches add personality and depth to your wedding album.

A Team Effort

For most weddings, I am joined by my husband Mike, and sometimes an assistant, ensuring comprehensive coverage of your special day. Whether it’s a small, intimate ceremony or a grand celebration, my team and I are committed to providing exceptional service and stunning photography.

The Patricia Wells Philosophy

The most important aspect of wedding photography is to create amazing photographs that you will cherish and proudly display forever, all while remaining unobtrusive. My aim is to document your wedding day authentically, ensuring that you and your guests can enjoy the celebration without distraction.
