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.

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

I don't charge for travel anywhere in the world

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

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.

What's the typical wedding coverage package that you offer? What is the price?

My typical wedding is 10 hours of coverage, it includes an adventure engagement session plus an album.

I have a studio located in Calgary AB, Canada. I conduct meetings through Skype, and Facebook calling.

What are your professional degrees, credentials, affiliations? Have you taken any recent educational workshops or classes?

Diploma in Photography from Western Academy of Photography Victoria BC 
Degree in Design Grant MacEwan University  
Product specialist Canon Canada for one year

Cole made us feel really comfortable (he took the pictures before/during/after our wedding). He easily adapted to our changing needs. Cole is super responsive, very professional and lots of fun. And the pictures we've seen are incredible. Cole is truly talented. He captured small moments and the big ones. We really couldn't be happier and we recommend him to anyone looking to capture something special on camera.

From the first time a met Cole to our special day, he was nothing but amazing. It is clear he is passionate about his work and every photo he took was so thoughtful. We are so happy with the quality of photos and would highly recommend his services to anyone looking!

Words cannot describe how amazing Cole is as a photographer! In addition to his professional attitude, he has this amazing and fun personality. My partner and I are both typically very shy and we were worried that we would look awkward on photos, but he just has this way of making you feel comfortable and laugh easily. He is also very understanding. My partner and I eloped recently and Cole was there to support us through the whole roller coaster leading up to it. I would recommend Cole to anyone and would definitely hire him again for future events!!
