• This was my first time in many years having my photo taken professionally. Coltt made sure I could have my only child (a 12yr old German Shepherd) included in the experience. He was patient and kind and gave direction but nothing was really posed which was what I wanted.

  • My Fiancé and I love how talented Coltt is! We’ve known him for a while and weren’t aware he was a photographer until Recently! He worked with us so well and was very considerate on having the focus on us and what made us happy! We will definitely be getting more photos done with Coltt!

MY STYLE

 

Like anything that is unique, my style didn't come easy. It took me years to find my style. Now that I have, I am running with it. I like to describe my style as timeless, and something that will still look good in 10 years. It takes a lot to get to where I am, but I am now taking it a step further. I want you to be in front of my camera, and I want to capture your feelings, your smiles, and your beauty.

YOUR MOMENTS

I want you to imagine one of the happiest days of your life, perhaps from a wedding, a vacation, or an engagement. There's a certain nostalgia to those moments, the songs that you listened to, the places you went, and the things that you saw. That's why, more than ever, I became a photographer. I want to help you capture those moments, I want to help you lay them out in an album for your family to see, and I want you to have something to remember by. Moments are here and gone in an instant, but with photos, your memories will be forever frozen in time for you to look back at.

MY VISION

From the time you pick up the phone to schedule with me to the time the photo albums are delivered at your door, I am constantly envisioning how to make your photographs beautiful. I believe a lot in pre-production, that is preparation. I believe that as a photographer, it is my responsibility to come up with a concept that highlights you and your life.

MY INSPIRATION 

Sorry for the old photo, that's my grandmother. She passed a way back in 2008 and I have very few photos of her. Anyhow, I consider her to be one of the biggest inspirations. She gave me one of my very first first camera when I was very young, the disposable kind. I can still remember the day I used it and how alive I felt when I was 8 years old. I didn't know what I was doing, but I just knew to press the button and that these mysterious people would make photos from it at a convenience store. The passion I felt when I picked up that camera was unreal, I had never felt anything like it. Much like when a songwriter writes there first song, or a teacher teaches their first class, something sacred happened that day. I got hooked, and I wanted more. I'd bother my parents all the time to take me to the store so I could pick up a disposable film camera. Over the span of three years, I'd say I took close to 500 photos. It never got old, and still doesn't. Taking photos is my life, I live it and breathe it. My grandmother inspired me with something as simple as a 5 dollar piece of plastic and some film. I say my thanks everyday for her giving that camera to me because my life has been better ever since then.
