Ready to travel around the world

Vancouver-based wedding & family photographer.

Wedding, engagement, and family photography for the people who romanticize real life.

Re-live them as often as you want.

Capture the perfectly imperfect moments.

- Kim

We were really wanting our special moments to be documented meaningfully, in a way that captures the depth and gravity of the moment and all the emotions surrounding it. 

[Colleen] was able to freeze meaningful moments in time that included me, and also surprised me because she has her own artistic vision that I could have never dreamt of myself. 

“[Colleen] cares for you and your moments as if they were her own.”

How I approach every session

And it would be my honor to take a snapshot of this moment for you.

This is about immortalizing fleeting moments…

…the subtle touch

…the belly laughs

…the messy hair and dirt stained shirts.

This is about capturing the feeling behind the moment - as you are, perfectly imperfect.

This is real life.

This isn’t just any photoshoot. 

You’re not just gathering the family together for a Saturday afternoon—you’re getting married!

The kids won’t always be this young and little again.

But not everyone sees your story like you do.

You get to live this narrative day-to-day…

…but what good is it to remain in your mind forever, without saving it for decades to come?

iPhone photos don’t cut it.

When it matters the most,

I find joy in capturing real life on camera, and turning it into your personalized picture book.

Because the “boring”, everyday moments are what makes our lives memorable. 

Or you’re looking to celebrate your love on a random Tuesday night.

Whether your family is growing faster than you blink…..

Whether you’re getting married (or about to pop the question)...

get a glimpse of your most intimate moments.

I'd be forever grateful to

Permission granted to be yourself, to be silly, and laugh at everything in between. And if you need to bust out the juice boxes to keep your little ones at bay? All good. I might just ask for one, if you have extra.

Get timeless photos that truly reflect your story.

I love asking about your story. I live for that look you give to your partner about the first date, or giving you an excuse to shower your partner with that “thank you” that gets lost in the daily bustle. 

Re-live everything as if it were the first time.

If you’re the type to feel awkward when taking photos, I’m ready to help you feel at ease in front of the camera. (Hint: it might involve busting out your favorite Spotify playlist or playing fun games with your partner.)

Feel at home...in front of the camera.

I carry my camera with me, along with these beliefs.

the difference

You spend months planning the biggest night of your lives…but it flashes by in an instant. 

Take a snapshot of your wedding day and flip back to it in the years to come.

This season in your relationship will never come by again. 

Capture the quirks and the conversations between you and the one you love—right here, right now.


This is your space to slow down and look at the beautiful life you’ve built.

Breathe it in and capture it on camera—whether you’re about to welcome your 7-week-old son or surprise your mom for her 60th birthday.

Documenting humans at all stages of life.

I fell in love with a camera because I fell in love with the people in front of it.

My friends and I used to love exploring parks and abandoned barns in nice clothes. 

Those photos don't exist anymore (thank goodness!) but being behind the camera taught me how to notice the tiny, fleeting moments in this big, beautiful world we live in.

Dozens of weddings and family photos later, I get to tag along to capture what matters most to you.

And I’d consider it to be my greatest honor to be your third-wheel/honorary family member for the day.

Hi, I'm colleen! (Co for short.)

Pulling the camera away for a second.


- Levi & Becca

From our first moments together at our engagement shoot, we felt like Colleen was already a friend. She is personable and easy to feel comfortable around, while keeping the show moving and crafting beautiful scenes.

“From offering snacks as we drive to our couple shots, to fixing our hair...Colleen made us feel so special.”
