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.

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.

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

Cole is an amazingly talented, personable, and professional photographer. He is very quick to respond to emails and was very willing to accommodate our change in plans from a big backyard wedding to an adventure elopement with a challenging hike up a mountain! We really enjoyed working with him, our entire family was raving about him at our reception dinner, and he sent us so many sneak peek pictures on the same day! We highly, highly recommend Cole Hofstra Photography!

We loved working with Cole. He was lots of fun and very personable. He is very talented, professional and creative. We booked our engagement shoot and Cole came to Mexico with us for our wedding. During both experiences Cole made us feel comfortable and laugh so we could have the best candid photos. He got along with our group very easily and all of our friends and family loved him. He was reasonably priced for a destination wedding and has lots of experiences with destination weddings that he was an added resource for us when we were making decisions. I would highly recommend Cole to anyone!

Cole completely exceeded our expectations of a destination wedding photographer.  
He totally fit in with our guests and captured our wedding week perfectly!  
His ability to capture our pool parties, dinner parties, dance parties... oh, and the wedding itself, was amazing! Our wedding wouldn’t have been the same without him!
