Hello, I'm Colleen!

"This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it." ~Psalm 118:24

Ever since I was a little girl I always loved observing  how the sun lights each thing it touches differently and watching the shadows dance around with the wind. Or watching the rain delicately touch the leaves and caress the window as it falls. Joy fills my heart when I am able to preserve the beauty of the world and people around me that the Lord created to be so unique and immeasurably beautiful. What I love most of all is getting to know YOU and being able to tell your amazing and real story through my work. I am an artist whose desire is to spread the absolute joy I receive from this calling in my life to you through your unique and personal images.

I studied commercial and portrait photography for four years in the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains of North Carolina in the quaint college town of Boone. After graduating from Appalachian State University I have enjoyed preserving the memories of graduating seniors, beautiful families, the true love stories of recently engaged couples, their joyful weddings, and the cute new additions to their growing families!

I was recently married and enjoy living in the Wake Forest area with my husband Ryan and our three dogs! When I'm not photographing, you can find me hiking through the trees, running around with the dogs, or sipping on a nice glass of Insomnia Red Blend on the back porch with a good book watching the sunset. 

I don't want to just be "the photographer." I want to be your friend, someone you can trust to capture the rest of your life's most precious moments. I would be absolutely delighted to grab some coffee or sip some wine and grub on appetizers while we get to know each other and talk about what I can do for you. Head on over to my contact page to answer a few questions and I will be in touch with you shortly. I look forward to hearing from you!

xoxo, Colleen
