I find that if I come with a good attitude and pay attention, my clients will show me what is appropriate, funny, lovely and uniquely themselves. Even with family portraits and multitudes of personalities, a little respect and patience goes a long way in resulting in natural, not overly manicured photos.
What was your favorite wedding photo?
The hardest task I've faced has been choosing photos for our book because I love every single one of the hundreds of photos Colleen took for us. I'm trying to pick one, and I just can't. I really do love all of my photos, and they help me relive the most wonderful day of life over and over again!
How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?
Colleen is the perfect asset for any wedding. She was not just the photographer, but a wonderful guest. Colleen was so amazing that people are still asking me about the photographer even if they haven't seen her wonderful photos. She made us laugh and feel comfortable in front of the camera. She caught incredible candid and action photos that captured the emotions of the day as well as the traditional portrait shots of families.
What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?
Aside from capturing wonderful shots, Colleen's wedding package is amazing because you own all of your photos. She sends you discs with all of your photos edited and from there you choose which ones to put in your book. When we have the money (we're both students right now) my husband and I plan to get larger prints from Colleen, but in the meantime we can print from our computers the photos we are not putting in our book.
How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?
Colleen is just a delightful person to be around, and it's impossible not to feel comfortable with her. I fell in love with her when I met with her for the first time. She makes you feel special, and she genuinely wants to be a part of your day. As an example of making me feel comfortable, I was concerned about some mud on the bottom of my dress. I have several little nieces and nephews, so Colleen got a diaper wipe, bent down, and got the mud off of my dress herself just because she knew I was worried about it.Colleen does everything to make your day run perfectly.
