What people are saying
“We can’t even begin to describe how awesome it was to have Colin as our photographer on our wedding day!” Kim and Tom
I feel so lucky to have the kind of job that allows me to meet amazing people and to create images that they love and will cherish for their entire lives. It makes me feel like I do the kind of work that really matters! I am very proud of how many referrals I get from past clients and how many come back after I was their wedding photographer to have me as their family portrait photographer. Review sites like Google, Yelp and Weddingwire are a great place to see what people are saying about my photography services so don’t take just my word for it, read what they have to say about me and what it’s like to have me as your photographer.
“We just received our wedding photos so I can definitely say that Colin and his assistant are truly some of the most gifted photographers (it only took a week to get the photos!). The pictures were simply amazing and exactly what we were wanting for our wedding memories. I know that everyone has their different style of photography, but take a couple minutes to check out Colin’s and you’ll love them. I say this because we had numerous newlyweds go out of their way to tell my wife and I that they wished they had hired Colin.
On top of the great product we received, Colin is a down-to-earth, normal person. In my experience, someone with great talent has some quirks; however, Colin was extremely professional and personable. You can’t help but to be great friends with him, which greatly helped keep the wedding day fun!
I highly recommend Colin and his team, for any and all wedding photography (I imagine any other type of photography would be just as good). I expect it would be hard to find a photography team that was more professional, enthusiastic and knowledgeable than Photography by Colin Micheal.”

“We can’t even begin to describe how awesome it was to have Colin as our photographer on our wedding day! Anyone looking for an amazing photographer should stop their search and give Colin Michael a call. Working with Colin was such a great experience. He was on time, professional, personable, and came well prepared for the event.
Colin was an incredibly respectful man who made both my wife and I relaxed which allowed us to have fun while taking our pictures. He has a unique eye for choosing the best spot for all the beautiful photos that speak for themselves.
In addition to the breath taking photos, Colin is a pleasure to deal with and is someone you feel is a friend from the first second you meet him. He is genuine and truly makes you feel like your wedding is the most important he’s ever shot.
Our pictures are nothing short of fantastic, and the comments we have received have been amazing. The pictures literally look like they should be in a magazine and multiple people have made this comment to us as well. Words can’t express the gratitude we feel towards Colin and the amazing pictures he took on our wedding day. You will be delighted with his creativity and his ability to capture the most beautiful photos.”

“Colin is AMAZING!! He perfectly captured our Rehearsal and Wedding day. He is professional and friendly and knows exactly what pictures to take, making the day seamless. His follow-through and timeliness are outstanding! He asks enough questions beforehand so that you do not have to worry about a thing when your special day arrives. You can not go wrong by choosing Colin to shoot one of the most important days of your life. Colin will be our family photographer for years to come and I would recommend him a million times over.”

“Colin was referred to us by one of my groomsmen who had previously shot a few weddings with him in the past. I had a few conversations with Colin but hadn’t met with him until the day of our wedding. However, even with minimal interaction, it felt like Colin and I had been friends for years. He has a natural and casual demeanor, and at the risk of sounding cliche, you almost don’t even feel like he’s there. He picked beautiful backdrops for our photos, and he stayed with us late in the evening to take some industrial photos with us and capturing fireworks in the background since we got married on the 4th of July. The quality of Colin’s work is second to none, and one of our wedding photos was even a national finalist for my work’s vacation photo challenge. Just to put that in perspective, my firm has over 19,000 employees in the US, so to be selected as a finalist was a big deal. We have received raving reviews from our wedding album and photos, and Colin’s work is synonymous with quality. I strongly recommend him to anyone that is looking for a photographer for weddings, engagement shoots, baby photos, and pretty much any special occasion. Thanks Colin!”
Rosemary and Ravi
“Colin was great to work with. He’s great about getting to know what you’re looking for and delivers. We couldn’t have been happier with how our wedding photos turned out. He gave us a great mix of candid shots that really captured the day. I would highly recommend Colin for capturing your special moments. He’s flexible and great at what he does. The bonus is that he’s someone you’d also want to grab a beer with at the end of the day.”
Amanda and Michael
“We hired Colin to photograph our wedding last year. He came all the way from Bend, Oregon to Nevada City, California. Our ceremony was outdoors and it rained off and on. He managed to coordinate all of the pictures at the most perfect moments. From the pictures, we can’t even tell it had rained. They are so beautiful! He did a great job of using the natural surroundings of the state park and now we have awesome pictures to always remember our special day. He is so professional and thought of everything. We know several other couples that used his services as well and they all had great experiences. I highly recommend him.”
Cassandra and Sheldon
“Goodness, I guess I’m just “seconding” all the amazing reviews already in place! Not surprising, since Colin was so amazingly easy to work with. Great personality, easy going photographer – he managed to put myself and all my bridesmaids at ease during the pre-ceremony shots, and then found the most incredible backdrops for my husband and I to shoot against after the ceremony. It all seemed so carefree and easy – and the pictures turned out INCREDIBLE. Even more impressive, though, are the shots of the dance floor. I don’t know how one goes about capturing gorgeous photos when there are limbs flailing and people noticeably sweating after Hour 2 of a dance party…but Colin somehow managed to make this happen. Serious kudos, Colin! Didn’t think it was possible!”
Claire and Greg
“Colin shot our engagement and wedding last year. He captured so many moments authentically. We were beyond happy with the photos and enjoyed his process. We didn’t have to spend much precious time away from our guests on our big day, but we got all the essential group shots.”
Emily and Chuck
“My husband and I were so happy to have found colin to do our engagement and wedding photos! Colin made us feel very comfortable and at easy with the whole process. The photos turned out amazing and I can honestly say we couldn’t have asked for a better photographer! Colin has a great personality and everyone one at the wedding loved him. Our wedding album turned out fantastic and everyone that I show it to loves it. You can just look on his website and see how talented he is! I would recommended Colin for any of your photography needs! Thanks again Colin for being a part of making our day so special!!”
Krista and Nofio
“Colin shot my engagement and wedding photos last year and my husband and I couldn’t have been happier. Colin was referred to us by my husband’s sister, who also had an amazing experience. Meeting and working with him was like working with an old friend. Shooting our engagement photos felt like a silly and fun adventure that resulted in some of the most beautiful pictures. Colin has an eye that can pick the most ordinary looking spots and turn them into something breath taking. I was afraid of picking a bad photographer for the day of our wedding, but Colin felt like he was part of our family and made pictures right after our ceremony still feel like it was just me and my new husband. Colin took pictures that not only got people, but some very special memories that come alive in the pictures. I’m also kind of awkward in front of a camera and he somehow got me to look effortlessly gorgeous. Especially if you feel like you have no clue what you’re looking for in a photographer ( like I did) Colin is the best guy for you. You’ll get amazing pictures for a great price (we were on a tight budget and we got so much for our money) and his pictures won’t just capture the moment, but the entire experience of that moment. I cannot recommend him and his work highly enough. Thanks, Colin!”
Keely and Seth
“Colin was our photographer for our wedding and did such an amazing job. From the moment we met him we were comfortable with him right off the bat. When we walked out of his office my husband said I want him to shoot our wedding. That was saying a lot since my husband hates getting his picture done. Colin made him feel at ease and made everything fun and easy for us. Along with him being an awesome person to work with, his photos are amazing. Looking forward to photos by him of my husband and I with our baby on the way.”
Chelsie and Cody
“Choosing a photographer was one of the first boxes I checked off of my wedding to-do list when we first got engaged. I looked through a list of recommended photographers from one of the reception venues we were considering and just started browsing through some portfolios online. I was instantly drawn to Colin’s style and was pleased to find that his pricing was surprisingly reasonable. Colin was extremely responsive and professional from the start. I have to admit I really don’t like having my picture taken and didn’t quite believe Colin when he said the engagement shoot would get all of the awkwardness out of the way so that the wedding day would just be fun. But when we met Colin for our engagement shoot his calm and easy-going demeanor made us almost instantly comfortable. Rather than posing us artificially, he told us to just be ourselves. The pictures were very natural (just the way I wanted them) and beautiful. On the wedding day, I really appreciated that Colin made an effort to limit the time we spent away from guests. I was amazed at how fast he can work! Our families and the entire wedding party loved Colin as well. By the end of the day, we all felt like her was an old friend who fit in perfectly with the rest of our guests. One of my favorite memories from the entire wedding day was when my husband and I raced Colin around the reception site in golf carts to multiple shooting locations (which Colin scouted out beforehand). Pretty surprising coming from a girl who doesn’t like getting her picture taken!”
Victoria and Alex
“Worth every single penny!!! Not only did my hisband and I love him and his amazing work but our families loved him too. Colin won our trust instantly, we absolutely felt we were in good hands. I highly recommend taking engagemement pictures with him. He’s incredibly creative and it’s your opportunity to bond. That was most important to us…the day of he makes you feel like he’s your brother. He captured every moment, made everyone feel comfortable and although he was always there he was never obnoxcious. Everyone who has seen our wedding pictures ends up hating the photographer they used for their wedding. :0) It’s no surprise, he truly takes pride in his work. Trust me…you’ll end up kicking yourself if you don’t use him.”
