I've always loved a good story. I studied Journalism in college. I spent hours at a time in a quiet darkroom at the University of New Hampshire printing photos of my friends. I treasure them and the memories they hold. After graduating from college, I left for Colorado. I told my parents I’d be back in six months.… I’m still here.
After my daughter, Cassidy, was born I had a new reason to pick up the camera. Seeing how quickly my daughter was growing, I found a new story to tell. I discovered that the most honest photos were those that were not staged. There is a familiarity and attachment to the shots that I have of her in her first year. Seeing these photos brings out the memory of this sweet spot in life. Motherhood was new to me and the world was new to her. We both had a lot to learn.
Right after the birth of my second daughter, Sierra, I was leaving yoga and read the quote “what would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?” I was grateful to realize the answer was clear to me. Soon after, I quit my full time job and dedicated myself to turning my photography hobby into a career.
I’m so happy you’ve stumbled upon my work and I hope to have the opportunity to tell your story through my photography.
"It seems that the more places I see and experience, the bigger I realize the world to be. The more I become aware of, the more I realize how relatively little I know of it, how many places I have still to go, how much more there is to learn. Maybe that’s enlightenment enough - to know that there is no final resting place of the mind, no moment of smug clarity. Perhaps wisdom, at least for me, means realizing how small I am, and unwise, and how far I have yet to go."

I am so so thankful that we were able to work with Caroline for our wedding photos! Caroline was so professional and fun throughout the entire process and really took into account the photos we wanted taken. On top of our choices of photos, Caroline and her amazing team took some creative liberty and got some AMAZING shots. Our entire wedding party and families raved about their experience working with Caroline and are thrilled about the pictures! I would highly recommend working with Caroline for your wedding, engagement, and family pictures!
Caroline is amazing!! If you are looking for someone to truly capture the story of your wedding day, Caroline is your person. Every shot turned out beautifully, and truly captured those candid moments, the emotion and the fun of the day. She made sure that she understood what was important to us, and made sure it was captured. So many guests complimented me during the wedding and the following weeks on Caroline - she was fun, respectful and engaged throughout the entire day. I couldn't have picked a better photographer and would recommend her to anybody.
Caroline worked with my fiancé to set up a perfect proposal! We were coming from out of state so he wanted to search around to find the perfect photographer before choosing. He told me (after the fact haha) that he knew right away Caroline would be the best! She captured each moment perfectly and genuinely cared about getting amazing shots. I couldn't have asked for more beautiful photos to have forever. Thank you so much Caroline! She also got the pictures to us right away and downloading/ordering was very easy and stress free!
Hiring Caroline Colvin to photograph our wedding was one of the best decisions we have made. Caroline is obviously talented but what sets her apart is that she is kind, thoughtful, and makes you feel so incredibly special. Caroline has truly become a friend to us throughout this process and having her at our wedding felt like having one of our oldest and dearest friends there. She went above and beyond for us in every single way possible to make sure that every element of our wedding was documented, even staying past her required time to capture the end of the reception and our sparkler exit! When we looked at Caroline’s portfolio we fell in love with her amazing ability to capture more than just gorgeous portraits but to capture photojournalistic shots that capture the mood and love in a room. She did not disappoint! Her mastery of capturing emotion and light came through in the photos and we are so pleased that we have these images to remember our special day. Do yourself a favor and hire Caroline to capture your wedding, event, birthday etc. She is a true professional. And did I mention she does amazing boudoir photography?!? What can’t she do?
Caroline did such a fantastic job working with us! We had a destination wedding in Estes Park. Being located in Ohio, we were reliant upon solid communication and a smidge of faith for this to all go well. We found all those traits and more working with Caroline. She suggested an ideal location and worked around our goals for the event. Within a couple of weeks after the event, we had over 4 gigabytes of beautiful photos waiting for us. There was no additional fuss as with other photographers for upcharges on the photos or limitations. All the high-res images were waiting for us and were so beautifully edited. We could not be happier with how our special day was captured!
Caroline Colvin is a wonderful family photographer -- if you are looking for family photos, I cannot recommend her highly enough. We've done a photo session with her each year now for 4 years, and we always get amazing shots. We have photos of our kids growing up that are just priceless. We've done photos at our house and at a beautiful park, and we've done private sessions and her mini-sessions -- and with and without our dogs. Always amazing results. We got started by doing a mini session with her, and you can't go wrong with that. Definitely give her a try if you're looking for some great photos of anyone in your family.
