Time moves recklessly onward and we can miss the deeply captivating moments the world offers.
As a photographer, my goal is to assist in capture these moments.
It not only prolongs the moment but allows us to share these intense realities with those who inhabit it with us.
I help couples, families, and individuals by offering them irreplaceable photographs. I do this by providing it in a way that adds value by creating natural, genuine, and memorable filled images. I excel at making your session, not just a shoot but a memory to take home with you. Capturing the raw moments and combining my knowledge of the arts, I create a unique art composition filled with deep emotion.
With the ability to blend into the background of a wedding, I capture perfect moments without anyone noticing, as well as making you feel comfortable during intimate up-close photographs. With a two-part process, I combine natural direction with authentic moments. This unique style and process of my photography create a value in my work like no other photographer can offer. I will direct you on simple gestures of where to put your hands, feet, chin, and how to position your bodies for the best angle that will assist in getting the greatest possible photographs. I love to include laughter, prompts, and games that create a genuine reaction.
My editing technique is aligned with my morals with natural beauty; I do not alter or minulupate bodies other then light adjustments such as acne.
"Colleen was great to work with. It was the first time me and my boyfriend had professional pictures taken and she made the experience fun and relaxed. My boyfriend used the opportunity of the photo shoot on our vacation to Maui to propose to me and she did such a great job with capturing the surprise moment! The pictures came out beautiful and I have gotten so many compliments on how perfect they look. I would recommend her to anyone!"
Colleen was so easy to work with during the entire process! She took a mixture of candid and posed photos. The results are beautiful! Her artistic talent is amazing. I can’t say enough about the beauty she saw in the scenery while taking shoots of us on the beach. Her communication was great!! I did a surprise proposal, she helped me pick out the best location in Maui. She helped me pick the best time and even suggested great ideas for dinner afterwards. She made the process that much easier. These photos made me and my fiancée really excited! Thank you, Colleen!
Colleen was so amazing. We are from the mainland and were vacationing in Hawaii. We wanted a photo shoot to remember our amazing trip and Colleen was great at meeting us where we needed to easily get to, finding a beautiful diverse location, making us feel comfortable, and getting our pictures back to us at a reasonable time. She gave us so much love and I could tell she has a passion for photography and wanted to be there for us. Our pictures were beautiful and I thought the value for her work was exceptional. I would highly recommend Colleen for all picture needs- you will not be disappointed. I am an awkward picture taker and she made me feel so comfortable and effortless.
