"Colleen was nothing short of incredible! She did our engagement and wedding photos. We were beyond thrilled with how both sessions went and the final outcome of the pictures. My husband and I aren’t very photogenic so we were worried that our discomfort would be portrayed through the pictures. Instead, Colleen worked very closely with us and allowed us to feel comfortable during the sessions therefore capturing our true emotion and creating wonderful photos and memories. When it came to our wedding I had many questions and was constantly calling or emailing Colleen. There was never any hesitation in her response. She was always very accommodating and available. She spent so much of her personal time with me on my wedding day and captured the entire day from the champagne mimosas to the final song of the night. Colleen and her second photographer Jodi were never intrusive or in the way at all during the wedding or reception. Two days before the wedding Colleen called me and had an idea about spicing up the reception with a little photography fun. It was an awesome suggestion and really added a lot of fun for us and our guests. When we saw our wedding pictures for the first time we were extremely pleased. We feel that Colleen far exceeded our expectations and went way above and beyond what she was “contracted” to do. She truly takes great pride in her work and she is very dedicated to her clients. Aside from being a wonderfully talented photographer Colleen is extremely creative, respectful, professional, and accommodating. We would recommend Colleen and her work to anyone and everyone! We feel very fortunate to have had her as our photographer and feel as if we have a wonderful new friend."-The Detwilers

My husband and I were looking for a photographer to capture our baby girl's newborn shots and we were blown away with the way all the pictures turned out! Colleen was patient and accommodating to our baby girl who was only a few weeks old at the time; only a true professional would take the time as she did to wait for a crying fit to subside and then cheerfully snap away.Colleen's pictures are so vintage and beautiful not to mention reasonably priced, it made it difficult to choose which ones to purchase. We have received endless compliments of the personal birth announcements she created for us, they exceeded all of our expectations. I highly recommend Colleen if you have a newborn and are looking for unique pictures that capture the time when they are so innocent:) We are looking forward to Ava's next session!!!

"My family had the unique opportunity to have Colleen take photos for our parent’s anniversary. We were looking for the exception to the norm, and boy did we find it. Colleen has such a great knack with picking the perfect location, and her eye is amazing. She was so patient with our 8 1/2 year old CRAZY chocolate lab!!! When she posted the photos online, I was so taken back - it was very emotional - she nailed it! She created something that I will cherish forever.”Jodi Olsen

"I was fortunate enough to have a maternity photo session with Colleen.. I was 37 weeks and Colleen was nothing but accommodating ... I never felt uncomfortable or tired which is hard in the third trimester!! I would recommend her to anyone thinking of maternity pics.. Her vision was exactly what I wanted and so happy with the result!! It's something I will have forever.. Thank you Colleen!!"-Danielle Drahus

"Working with Colleen was such a great experience! She really took the time to listen to what I wanted. She understood how important getting family pictures was to me. As a busy mom, I value every little moment of joy with my family. I wanted something to really capture the little moments with my family and the love I have for them. The photos that Colleen took captured all of that. She created a beautiful story with all the images and it made my heart melt with joy. Sounds cheezy, but so true! Colleen is a wonderfully talented photographer and artist and I'm so grateful for the moment of time she captured. Now we have that moment for always. As my children grow, there will be so many more little moments (some bigger than others) to come. I'm looking forward to working again with Colleen."- Sue S.

"Colleen photographed our one year anniversary pictures that wonderfully turned into our announcement photograph for our first child. We were over the moon pleased with how they turned out! We love them more than our wedding pictures. We will be using Colleen for every momentous events in our lives. We cannot wait to have our little man this summer so we can use her again. Joe and I recommend her to everyone!"- Joe and Lauren Matta

"My husband and I were very impressed with Colleen's photographs online that we decided to ask her to take photographs of our family. We wanted something personal and vintage, and that is exactly what we got. The location she suggested was absolutely perfect and convenient. She was incredibly accomodating to our family which includes a 4 year old and a 5 month old. Her artistic ability to create such an amazing atmosphere truly captured the emotions of my family. I will cherish these pictures forever." "The only trouble I had was trying to chose the pictures I wanted!" -Gina

"She has a unique style and is extremely great with children. My kids were relaxed and happy throughout entire photo session! Please just mention my name. You will not be sorry you used her!" - Lindsey Peterson

"Colleen perfectly balanced the day by providing a sense of comfort and ease to help us open up, while giving helpful direction to capture exactly what we hoped for. We had such a fun day with her and I'm so thankful that we'll always have these photos to look back on!"- Leah Hazelton

"I must say, after trying to put a family portrait together for the longest time, i am overwhelmed by what colleen did for us. It was a very casual setting within our own home. Colleen made it very simple as she followed us and the kids throughout the house snapping away on her precious Canon. and when the time came to settle us down she did a phenomenal job in coordinating the kids and us as one unit. I am so happy that we had her do our family portrait and I look forward to using her services over and over again."- The Quinones Family
