hey hey hey

it's me colette!

I'm sure if you landed yourself here you want to know about the girl behind the camera. I am a wedding + engagement photographer based in Chicago. I love my couples, hearing their stories, and capturing their happiness through my lens. My approach is to capture true and genuine emotion like that feeling you get right before your first look. I want to capture all the crazy, calm, and in-between moments that truly matter to YOU. I am the ultimate 3rd wheel and promise to take the best care of you on your special day. I'm not just your photographer, I'm your best friend, hype-woman, dress holder, dance partner, basically whatever you need me to be.

Yes, I do love photography BUT there's much more to me. For starters, I am a dog lover, I am completely obsessed with my fur child, Rudy. I would consider myself a city gal BUT I recently moved to the burbs with my boyfriend Brian and let me tell ya, having a front/backyard for bonfires is VERY clutch. Cheap red wine on a rainy day or a cold Angry Moon make me very happy (yes an angry orchard + Blue Moon, TRY IT). I recently fell in love with sushi and if you're ever in Chicago you must try Sushi Taku, actually call me and I'll go with ya. My friends and family mean everything to me. I love traveling to new places and going on vacation, cause who doesn't? I make a MEAN chocolate-chip banana bread that sometimes gets confused for meatloaf but don't worry, it's cool. Thrillers and horror films with a big bowl of popcorn are my fav. And I will always say yes to pizza, thin crust and ranch everyday baby. If I'm the kinda gal you want by your side, don't hesitate and let's make some magic!
