Let us capture your memories

Patronus Photographic is a Lifestyle Photography boutique located in Buffalo NY. We specialize in creative, stunning and often moody photography, in a variety of disciplines. Having worked with creative agencies for 20+ years, and brands like Fisher-Price/Mattel, we've had the privilege to experience a multitude of photographic situations. From photographing children, to product shots of jet fighter engine components, to visually stunning food (that we always try to take home after), we've seen a lot. We're also a family business who believe that absolutely everyone deserves to have a nice photo and we work hard to accomodate every budget.
