        Q&A

        Q.
        How would you describe your style?
        A.
        I like to think of my wedding work as storytelling. I want to take your moments, emotions and details and capture them creatively and honestly. When I present your photos to you, my hope is that they represent your day exactly how you remember it.
        Q.
        How many photos will we receive?
        A.
        There are a lot of factors that determine the final number of photos you will receive. If I have a second photographer and one location, I typically delivery 100 photos per hour of shooting.
        Q.
        Do you have insurance?
        A.
        I am absolutely insured. I also carry permits for the public spaces where I shoot. I guess I’m kind of a rule follower.
        Q.
        What is a typical timeline?
        A.
        I usually arrive a few hours before the ceremony to capture “getting ready photos” and all of your special details. If you choose do a first look, the “formal” bride and groom and bridal party portraits typically take place before the ceremony as well. Family portraits usually take place immediately following the ceremony. Apart from formal portrait time, I prefer to let the events of your day to happen organically and capture them in a documentary style. Feel free to contact me to see a sample photography timeline.
        Q.
        What is in your bag?
        A.
        I shoot with Canon 5Ds and all L series lenses. It all started with my Canon rebel film camera that my parents gifted me when I graduated from high school. Thank you, Andre Agassi.
        Q.
        Can I have or see all of the unedited photos you took at our wedding?
        A.
        I do not ever offer my unedited images. This is an industry standard. When you pay for me to photograph your wedding, part of that service includes culling the images and professional editing. If you have specific needs, feel free to contact me so we can talk about it.
        Q.
        What is your typical wedding package?
        A.
        Most of my clients invest in the 8 hour package, with a second photographer, an engagement session and a 10×10 album.
        Q.
        Do you travel?
        A.
        I love to travel and would love to hear about your destination wedding plans. If you are getting married in a “bucket list” location, I may even be willing to cover all travel expenses. Please inquire!!!
        Q.
        Do you shoot elopements?
        A.
        Heck yeah! Contact me to see some of my elopement work. I’m always happy to help you plan your elopement or create a custom package to meet your needs.
        Q.
        How long before we receive our photos?
        A.
        I typically complete my wedding galleries within four weeks. If I need more time, I pick up the phone to let you know.
        Q.
        What if you get sick or injured on our wedding day?
        A.
        I have a great network of extremely talented photographers in Colorado who I would turn to step in for me. This has never happened, but back up plans are always important when working weddings.
        Q.
        What is your backup system for our photos?
        A.
        Right after any shoot, I immediately back up the photos to a hard drive and also keep my photos on my memory cards until your photos are safely delivered. I also hang onto your photos for one year after your wedding date (but I would encourage you to backup your photos as well).
        Q.
        We’d like to book you, what’s the next step?
        A.
        Amazing! I’m thrilled! If you have not already, please complete the contact form below. I will then get you an agreement and invoice, once we have agreed on the right package for your day. A 50% retainer holds your wedding date. After that you can check “find a photographer” off your list. Let’s plan our next consultation at your favorite brewery or coffee shop!

        Kind words from clients...

        Just book her :) I was looking for a photographer that would capture those unrehearsed moments and be as unobtrusive as possible. Hit the nail on the head! She caught the whole day beautifully and I barely noticed she was even there. She is a breeze to work with and I'm having a really hard time selecting my favorites from the super organized online album.

        Caroline was absolutely amazing to work with! We had so much fun at our engagement shoot and our wedding, it was truly like having a friend take our photos all day. She was super easy going but was able to keep us on our tight timeline without causing us any stress. Her work is spectacular and she made us look better than we ever could have imagined! Her photos are breathtaking and her natural photography skills are incredible. She goes above and beyond- she really took into consideration our tastes and the overall vibe of the wedding for a cohesive day, as well as choosing awesome locations. Caroline had great recommendations for both photography as well as other vendors to work with that made our day amazing. We would absolutely love to be able to work with Caroline again some day!

        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 was an absolute pleasure to work with. We cannot recommend her highly enough. This was a Colorado destination wedding, but regardless, email and phone communication with Caroline was a breeze. Well in advance of the wedding, she got to know our personalities and the style of photography we liked. She clearly takes great pride in making sure the end product fits what we desired. Her questionnaire ahead of the wedding ensured that all the small details were ironed out. During the wedding, her energy was infectious, and she helped ensure key photos were taken while being flexible in accommodating other shots. In the end, all the photographs were turned around for us within ten days. They were all superb and thoroughly exceeded our expectations! In fact, Caroline was able to provide a nice slideshow preview within just a couple of days of the wedding for the groom's father, who was unable to travel to the wedding due to unforeseen circumstances. She really goes above and beyond!

        Caroline was incredible. Caroline went above and beyond in every way and most importantly made my husband and I feel comfortable in front of the camera. I was just as concerned about the quality of person as the quality product when picking my vendors and it took one meeting with Caroline to know she'd be the perfect fit. We felt like we could be ourselves and made a friend along the way. Picking Caroline was the easiest decision we made throughout the wedding planning process and the pictures we have in our home remind us of that daily. She's the best!
