Y’alllll. Collette is magic behind the camera. During our wedding I completely forgot we even had a photographer because she made everything feel so natural and unposed, which is totally how it should be! There were pictures that we got back that I was like w h a t — I don’t even remember her being here for this part. It took us days to pick our favorite pictures and still I look through all of them and am so happy we chose Collette to shoot our wedding!!! Oh, also. The girl braved a whole ice storm and got the last flight out of Colorado to shoot our wedding in Dallas! She said if she couldn’t get a flight that she was going to rent a car and DRIVE all the way because she wouldn’t miss our big day. We love you, Collette!!!!



Tara & Conlan

My fiancé and I have had the pleasure of shooting with Collette a few times. She has an incredible way of making you feel comfortable and beautiful. We have printed almost every photo she’s taken of us. Not to mention her editing style is amazing! I highly recommend booking her for individual or couple photos. She NEVER disappoints!!



Reagan + Dawson 

Collette was our wedding photographer and she was amazing!! There wasn’t a stranger in the room in her eyes, she was personable & dedicated to getting all of the best shots, you could perfectly see that with how amazing our photos turned out 😍 So thankful we chose her for the best day of our lives!



Elle + Jason

Me and my husband loved working with Collette! She made us both feel so comfortable with having poses for us to do and ideas on how to stand and be more free flowing. She definitely was able to capture our love! Also! Collette was super amazing about getting our photos back to us in timely manor. If your looking for a third wheel for your day of I would hire her immediately. 



Hannah & Kevin 

We travelled to Colorado from Florida for a quick weekend trip and decided to take engagement pictures while we were there. We found Collette through an Instagram search and she was SO responsive and easy to book with! When we met Collette it was like we had been friends for years, she kept the shoot super fun and there weren’t any awkward moments! The pictures she shot were PHENOMENAL. She captured the exact vibe we wanted to portray!! We are so lucky that booked with her, she is truly an artist behind the camera. 



I specialize in intimate elopements and micro weddings all through the rocky mountains. Having a big wedding? Im down for that too. I'll get rowdy with you and yours any day of the week. My dream is to make your dreams come true. I will plan your big day with you, help you pick out floral arrangements, and be your biggest hype gal through our time together (oh, and after).
