The Wedding Experience

Meeting you in person and learning all about your story and wedding day is very important to me! It's also important that you find a wedding photographer who's style you resonate with and connect with on a personal level. Next up is setting up a time to video chat or a phone call to make sure we're the perfect fit for one another!

GETTING YOU COMFORTABLE!

Engagement sessions are a perfect date night and set time away from the hustle of wedding planning! I offer engagement sessions in all of my collections. Why? E-sessions are the the perfect opportunity to get you comfortable in front of the camera and familiar with my shooting style. It also gives us the chance to meet before your wedding day.

PLANNING FOR
YOUR SPECIAL DAY.

Around three months before your wedding I send over a detailed questionnaire for you to complete. After this, we finalize your timeline, talk over your expectations and requests, and anything else I should know about your big day.

The Process

Alexandra + Nick

"Throughout the entire process, she was professional, warm, friendly, and well prepared. She went above and beyond in every possible way, and she brought so much joy and peace to our wedding day. " 

Working with Colette was one of the very best decisions we made for our wedding day.

Rachel + Jeremy

"She was exactly what we were looking for when we sought out a Catholic photographer. She did an amazing job incorporating the beauty of being Catholic into her work and she worked with us through every detail to make our vision to come true! "

Colette absolutely hit the mark when it came to incorporating our faith in every shot.

Mackenzie + Hudson

"Through her genuine personality, we were immediately put at ease being in front of the camera. She was clever, polite, and organized when it came to naturally posing everyone."

Interested in working together?

Next Question

Yes! Over the years I have found that providing a second photographer ensures that each part of the day is covered fully and no moment is missed. It also means I am able to accomplish everything you would like captured without rushing or sacrificing something for the sake of time.

DO YOUR COLLECTIONS INCLUDE A SECOND SHOOTER?

Next Question

I do not give out raw files under any circumstance as they are not a proper representation of my work. A raw file is like a painting half complete, my own editing style in the final touch and what sets me a part from other photographers.

DO YOU GIVE OUT RAW FILES IF WE WANT TO EDIT THE PHOTOS OURSELVES?

Next Question

I shoot with top of the line Canon DSLR and mirrorless camera bodies and lenses. Every camera I use has duel card slots which means I have 2 copies of each photo I take. I always bring back up equipment with me and make back-ups of your images on my external drives and cloud storage.

WHAT KIND OF GEAR DO YOU USE? DO YOU HAVE BACKUPS?

Next Question

Absolutely we do! Right after you book, we will send over a primary timeline based off your wedding mass and reception times along with what we see as best for your individualized day. We are always available to answer any questions or concerns you may have through the process and love to create a stress-free timeline for you as soon as possible!

DO YOU PROVIDE YOUR COUPLES WITH A TIMELINE?

Next Question

Yes! My business is insured and I would be happy to provide a certificate of insurance upon booking and request.

MY VENUE REQUIRES THAT ALL MY VENDORS MUST BE INSURED. DO YOU HAVE BUSINESS INSURANCE?

Next Question

Each wedding day will vary, depending on the size and how many hours of coverage. I estimate that you can expect around 50-75 images per hour of coverage 

HOW MANY PHOTOS WILL I RECEIVE FROM MY WEDDING?

Next Question

I understand that choosing to cancel or move a wedding is not an easy decision. If you find yourself in this situation, I ask that you let me know as soon as possible. The retainer you pay to reserve your date is non - refundable but can be put towards a future portrait session. 

WHAT IS YOUR
CANCELATION POLICY? 

Next Question

When we meet for a consultation call, we will talk over what is currently planned for your wedding day so far. I will make a suggestions based on the details of your day, but you can always adjust and add on an additional hour of coverage at a later date.

WHAT IF WE DON'T KNOW HOW MANY HOURS OF COVERAGE WE NEED YET?

Next Question

Yes! We have a list of our preferred vendors that we know and trust will provide you with the best possible experience and product or service for your wedding day. We want to make sure that your experience working with other wedding professionals is positive and you have the best of the best!

I AM STILL LOOKING FOR OTHER WEDDING VENDORS FOR MY DAY! DO YOU HAVE RECOMMENDATIONS FOR ME?

Frequently Asked Questions

Sydney + Jacob

"From the beginning, she was always available to talk and help formulate our vision for our day. She is so easy-going and sweet and we never felt rushed or panicked about needing to take pictures. She made being in front of the camera feel natural! We will treasure the photos from our wedding mass forever. These were the only photos we really cared about, because the Sacrament is what matters most. Colette truly captured the divine. " 

Colette was the perfect wedding photographer for our big day!

Grace & Alex

"She worked so well with our other vendors and made sure everything was set to go. One of the most important things for my husband and I was our wedding mass. Colette's knowledge of the catholic mass allowed her to capture it perfectly and those are photos we will cherish forever. We can not recommend Colette enough! "

Colette was absolutely amazing throughout our entire planning process and wedding day.

Bridget + Johann

"On the day of the wedding, Colette was extremely professional, personable, supportive, and calm. Even though we hadn't met in person before, it honestly felt like having an old friend come to photograph our wedding. She was so organized and prompt, yet never made us feel rushed or stressed, even when we were running behind schedule and got caught in a thunderstorm. And most importantly, every single photo turned out absolutely beautiful and we will truly cherish them forever. "

Colette went above and beyond to get all the photos we wanted, and so much more,
