Our Priceless Preservation Team

Patty Hoffman,

Photo Restoration Specialist

Patty has been restoring photos for Priceless Preservation for five years. She has worked on many historically important photographs for institutions and families. She has restored numerous tintypes and historical group photos. She also has restored a wide range of portraits, including black and white photos that have been tinted. Sometimes she adds or subtracts people from a photograph at a client's request. Sometimes she colorizes black and white pictures.  She guarantees her work 100 percent. For a few examples of her work, please visit our Photo Restoration page. On rare occasions when she finds she is unable to bring a damaged photo to a point that meets a client's expectations, the client is not charged. Patty works from home with her beloved Coton de Tulear dog, Happy. If you have questions about photo restoration projects, please contact Patty at:
