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.

Cole was invaluable on our wedding day as he was both our JP and photographer for the family and couple portraits. I cannot begin to express how amazing this man is at what he does! He is absolutely hilarious and easily made even our most stoic friends laugh along for the pictures. Family is still calling us to say how great he was. The pictures are beautiful, Cole. Thank you again for all you have done!

I really can’t say enough about how wonderful Cole is. We struggled through postponements and changes to covid restrictions and he kept our minds at ease and was always super responsive and flexible. His photos are incredible and his energy brought so much fun and positivity to our wedding day! He was incredibly professional and knew exactly what to do and where to go for the best photos and awesome experience. Our guests even commented on how great he was! I am so thankful for everything that he did and I would recommend him to anyone for their perfect day!

Cole was referred to us by some friends for our engagement photos back in January – and we are so thankful for that!

We wanted to do this shoot to help us get more comfortable in front of the camera, and also so that we would have some photos to treasure and celebrate our engagement while our wedding plans were on hold. Right from our first call with Cole we could tell that he would help us feel comfortable and that we would have a great time the day of our session – indeed, we had such a fun afternoon, and Cole perfectly captured some really wonderful moments. We’re so happy and thankful Read More for Cole’s expertise and patience to help us accomplish all of this.

Each time we’ve gone back through the photos, we find something else about them to love. We appreciated Cole’s keen eye in identifying elements around the lake to incorporate into our photos – some of the shots at spots he found while we were exploring are some of our favourites!

Any opportunity that we might have to recommend Cole to others, for photography or officiating, Cole can count on it!
