About Me


I am a Husband to my beautiful and amazing wife Ariel.
I am now a Father to my son Elijah John.
I am a Photographer and a Graphic Designer.
I am about to be a high school Art teacher.
I grew up in Colorado and I miss the mountains.
I now live in Iowa… and many ask why.
Last but not least, I follow the truth and hope found in Jesus.

My creative endeavor is to capture your unique and beautiful story through my photography.
When future generations find old photos of you and your story…
I want to be the one who captured those memories for your family to enjoy.

Let me serve you and your family by capturing these memories that will last a lifetime!
I can’t wait to meet you and hear your story!

The thought of capturing that one photo that your family will cherish forever is why I do what I do.
Patton Design & Photo is here to capture your beautiful memories and portray your legacy for generations to come.
I do not want your story to be forgotten and I want to capture it in the most beautiful and telling way I know how… photography.

Feel free to browse through my portfolio of Wedding, Engagement, Senior, Baby, Family and the rest of My Life.
You will find that I have what I like to call a photojournalistic and fine art style… in other words… I hate cheesy!
I try my hardest to keep my sessions authentic but fun.

With that said I would love to meet you and hear your story!
If you love what you see and are ready to have your story captured by me I would love to hear from you.
Send me a quick email through the Contact tab in the menu even if you still have questions.
Thanks so much for your interest in using PDP and I hope you enjoy looking through my work!
