I met Colleen in a black and white photography class and after viewing her images on instagram, I knew I really wanted to work with her and be among the many stunning photos she'd taken. As someone who prefers to be behind the camera, I was surprised that I wanted my portrait taken at all, but I had a feeling Colleen would create a beautiful memory for me and that feeling was right!
Leading up to the shoot, Colleen was available to talk through all details including my vision for what the portraits would look like and even offered to take a look at what I planned to wear that day. She helped me choose a location that would really capture the beauty of the Colorado landscape as well as a time when the natural light could work its magic!
Colleen was great at helping me warm to the camera and made me feel at ease throughout the entire portrait shoot. She provided guidance when I wasn't quite sure of what to with my hands or how to pose, which may have been for most of the shoot! I feel like Colleen approaches her craft with a very confident and positive energy that I couldn't help but take on while she took my picture.
I'm so happy I have these images to document both this time in my life and my adventures in Colorado and would enthusiastically recommend Colleen to anyone who is looking for not just amazing photos, but also a truly memorable experience.

I have been photographed by Colleen multiple times: once for my head shots, and the other with my boyfriend. Both times I fell in love with the images AND the experience! Colleen is not only an incredibly talented photographer, but she is SO much fun! I laughed a lot during our shoots and felt so comfortable. She brought out the best in me for my head shots and in my boyfriend and I for our couples shoot - and you can truly tell in our images! You will not regret hiring her for your photo needs! Love you Colleen!

Colleen met me at my place to do professional pictures for my business. She was creative, enthusiastic, and encouraging to help my awkwardness. The pictures turned out beautifully and perfect for the branding I wanted to create.

Thank you so much, Colleen!! I am so happy that I decided to shoot with her! I will certainly refer my friends to Colleen. And I will definitely be purchasing prints from her as well.

Colleen is one of my favorite Denver fashion photographers! I've been blessed to work with her several times while updating my professional modeling portfolio. Each time, Colleen has created a new look and style individual to the needs of every client. She goes above and beyond in planning and executing the final look. From hair and makeup, to wardrobe, and the final product of photos. Not only are the photos amazing with every shoot, but I love the personal time we get to know each other! I highly recommend Colleen to any model looking to start or further their professional portfolio. And I know for a fact agencies love her, as my portfolio in Los Angeles is a result of some of her dedication to the craft!

My husband and I got married in September 2013 in New York's Hudson Valley. About 6 months prior to our wedding, our original photographer cancelled. I perused various wedding blog sites searching for other options and was shocked at the NYC prices. I remembered that my old roommate's sister, Colleen, took beautiful photos as a hobby, and they were the exact type of feel I was looking for in our photos - soft, vintage looking, and of course beautiful. I immediately called her to see if she would be interested in us flying her out to NY to photograph our wedding and thankfully she said yes.
This was Colleen's first time photographing a wedding solo, as she had assisted on other weddings where she lived, but I had no doubt that she could handle the task. We were lucky enough to be in Denver the spring before our wedding so Colleen took our engagement photos at Red Rocks. We had such a fun time together! The pictures turned out great and are such a fun memento to have. The day before our wedding, Colleen scouted our location so she could have a plan of what she wanted to do on the big day. Colleen was a complete joy to work with on our wedding day and was even a pit bull when the time was right - gathering people for the post-reception group photos to get that process over and done with quickly.
Our wedding photos are stunning and absolutely perfect! I'm glad our initial photographer cancelled because there's no way he could have done a better job than Colleen. She was exactly what I was looking for! The best part was how quickly she had the photos ready for us to see. We had them shortly after our honeymoon. I never understood why some photographers take months to deliver photos. I highly recommend Colleen, she's a doll personally and professionally.
