Contact Cole Hofstra







I have a passion for life and love, and the opportunity to capture those moments for others within single frames is a magnificent opportunity. I shoot with creativity and never hold back, you'll find me in the dirt or on top of the table trying to capture the beauty and excitement of the day that is as unique as you are. Wedding days are a story, your story! One that needs to be told in detail and extravagance! My goal, is with a photo journalistic style is to capture that story so it can be told through time.

I am fun and outgoing and I use a big personality to bring a light feeling to the day. I like to capture the candid feel, and small moments of the over all day. When you look back 20 years from now you should remember the day how it was, not how it was posed.

Natalie + Geoff
Cole was our wedding photographer for our intimate wedding at Storm Mountain Lodge in Banff. He is so talented and really made us feel incredibly confident and comfortable the whole day. His eye for a beautiful picture is unmatched and he was fantastic at being present for all the important moments but not intrusive. All of our family and friends loved him. He was so personable and clearly a very experienced wedding photographer. We had a wonderful time working with him and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a great photographer!  
Thanks Cole!

Cole brought a great energy to our wedding, and was loved by all of the guests as he was very fun to be around. He was very flexible, and we really appreciated his direction. If you are debating whether or not to choose Cole, stop thinking and just pick him. We spent weeks interviewing photographers and we have no doubt that he was the right person for the role.

Ryan + Cassie
Cole was absolutely amazing to work with. His willingness to meet in person before hand and go over all of questions really quieted our worries. He was so helpful on the actual day of the wedding, calm and in the zone, which was exactly what you need when there is so much going on! Over all he made the day just that much better with how much fun we had with the shoot!
