    A Perfect Choice for a FUN, CANDID Engagement Shoot in the Mountains!

    Cole was referred to us by some friends for our engagement photos back in January – and we are so thankful for that!

    We wanted to do this shoot to help us get more comfortable in front of the camera, and also so that we would have some photos to treasure and celebrate our engagement while our wedding plans were on hold. Right from our first call with Cole we could tell that he would help us feel comfortable and that we would have a great time the day of our session – indeed, we had such a fun afternoon, and Cole perfectly captured some really wonderful moments. We’re so happy and thankful for Cole’s expertise and patience to help us accomplish all of this.

    Each time we’ve gone back through the photos, we find something else about them to love. We appreciated Cole’s keen eye in identifying elements around the lake to incorporate into our photos – some of the shots at spots he found while we were exploring are some of our favourites!

    Any opportunity that we might have to recommend Cole to others, for photography or officiating, Cole can count on it!

    The best day ever!

    I really can’t say enough about how wonderful Cole is. We struggled through postponements and changes to covid restrictions and he kept our minds at ease and was always super responsive and flexible. His photos are incredible and his energy brought so much fun and positivity to our wedding day! He was incredibly professional and knew exactly what to do and where to go for the best photos and awesome experience. Our guests even commented on how great he was! I am so thankful for everything that he did and I would recommend him to anyone for their perfect day!

    Highly Recommended!

    I can't recommend Cole enough, I would gladly give him more than 5 stars if I could! Especially coming from a couple who are not used to being in front of the camera, Cole made us feel very comfortable and we even forgot at times we were having our photo taken; it was as if we were chatting with an old friend! He sent us photo samples right away that are absolutely breathtaking and we are so excited to see the rest! Highly recommended!!

    Memories to last a lifetime

    If there was an option for 6 Stars I would give Cole 7.

    He was an absolute rock star for my wife and I when our wedding got postponed in April amidst the COVID craziness. He stayed in touch with us regularly and when we decided after six months of postponement that we would do a small family elopement and we asked him to officiate and photograph the smaller ceremony he graciously accepted and made a new date work with amazing flexibility.

    His fun and energy made the day memorable and truly special. His photography skills and artistic eye are only matched by his uncanny ability to read people and make things flow and work on the fly.

    He made the whole day stress free and kept us smiling and laughing throughout an amazing experience together.

    Highly recommended ❤️

    Cole was absolutely amazing to work with. We planned a last minute covid wedding last month and he was nothing but helpful and patient. He even suggested some good spots for an intimate ceremony which was really helpful. He was extremely prompt the day of the wedding, and made everyone comfortable and relaxed while taking photos. He was professional and down to earth and his work is absolutely amazing. I would highly recommend Cole to anyone needing a wedding photographer.
