Fantastic photos from a talented guy!!!
Wowza, I can't even begin to say all the wonderful things my husband and I think about Cole, I would give him a 10/5 if I could! He was a fantastic photographer for our small intimate COVID wedding ceremony. He is definitely experienced, professional and knows what he is doing. He provides excellent direction to his photo subjects (me and my husband!!!) when they have no idea what to do when getting professional photos done that results in BEAUTIFUL photos!!! Cole is also very careful and proactive about social distancing during this pandemic. We had a very easy time keeping six feet away from one another and he wore a mask the whole time when our other family members were around during the wedding ceremony. He is also great at directing family members for family portraits and working with little ones! You would be lucky to have him working with you on your special day or for any occasion! I definitely hope I can have Cole take photos with us again in the future. :) Thank you so so much!Sent on 11/09/2020

When a rating of 'Excellent' doesn't quite seem enough, you know you are lucky to have had such an incredible photographer!
Cole's work is a truly an art form. The moments he's given us to treasure through our gorgeous, candid, expressive photos that perfectly allow us to relive each moment of our wedding day are truly priceless. He brings the most precious moments to life in each and every photo. We were truly honoured by his passion, creativity and sincere care for his craft that will allow us memories to last a lifetime.
I first met Cole during my best friend's wedding. The moment you meet him, if feels like you've been friends for years. He immediately makes you feel comfortable to be yourself. When it came time for my own wedding, without a doubt, we knew it had to be Mr. Cole Hofstra!
During Covid, having to change our guest list from 150 to 30, we knew how incredibly important it was to capture every little detail, every smile, laugh and tear to be able to share with our family who couldn't attend. With so many uncertainties, and anxiety running high, it was an absolute blessing to know that no matter what, we were in good hands with Cole, knowing he would bring each special moment to life behind his lens.
With every photo, you are transported back to the moment. Anytime you would turn your head, he was already two steps ahead of you to capture the moment. Cole captured our special day absolutely perfectly and we would recommend him to anyone we know, a million times over.
Not to mention, we've called him the photo-wizard, because within DAYS we had sneak peeks and in less than 2 weeks we had the whole album! This is truly unheard of and we know that he went above and beyond to make that happen for us! But this is no surprise, because he gives the same attention, love and detail to every client he encounters.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you, Cole!Sent on 17/08/2020

NYE wedding made Magical
I can not say enough about Cole, he is so experienced and professional. We had him for over 12 hours during our NYE wedding. He arranged our first look, took us across downtown for photos, captured every moment of our day from noon to midnight. Cole takes the kind of photos you would see in a wedding magazine- elegant, timeless, breath taking. He has an amazing eye for back drops too. He knows all the great spots in the city and can make you look both elegant and bad ass posing in front of a graffiti wall.
He sent us about 35 photos the next morning as a preview and we were blown away with them.Sent on 06/01/2020

Cole photographed our wedding in Lethbridge on November 2nd and he was an absolute pleasure to work with! Not only is he an absolute master of his craft, but he also kept things fun and light the whole time. He brought amazing ideas for shots and provided us direction, which we definitely needed as a couple. Cole’s personality kept us laughing and smiling the whole day. We couldn’t be happier with our choice in a photographer and would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for someone to capture their wedding. 10/10 - Chris and KarlynSent on 27/11/2019

Absolutely breathtaking pictures and SO MUCH FUN!
We would 100% recommend Cole every time. We had such an amazing time shooting both our engagement photos and wedding photos with Cole. He is so easy going and makes everything so much fun! His photos are all absolutely breathtaking and I can't stop looking at them. Cole is fantastic at finding the best spots with the perfect lighting and the perfect backdrop, as well as coming up with the coolest ideas on how to take some of the best photos I've ever seen! We couldn't be happier with having Cole photograph our adventures and we will be using him for any and all future life milestones! Cole went above and beyond what I could have ever expected, was able to get amazing candid shots of all our friends and family and got a long with every single guest at the wedding. Our guests were all so impressed with his ease of fitting in with everyone they had assumed he was a friend that we had known way before the wedding! Cole is amazing!! Book with him asap as he books up fast!!! Best photographer out there if you're looking for someone to make wedding photography fun and to take incredible pictures that you will want to show everyone you know!!Sent on 30/10/2018
