They made sure the bridal party had fun, the parents were happy with the photo combinations and even took photos with guests cameras for them. Couldn't have asked for better photographers or wedding guests!

Capture Life Moments did a magnificent job with our wedding and engagement photos. Our engagement shoot was in the winter, because we wanted to have a snow in the background. Well, turns out there wasn't any snow on the ground, but instead, it was freezing cold! They made the... Read More entire experience enjoyable and we couldn't have asked for the pictures to turn out better, despite the cold. Before the wedding, Colleen met with us to run through the day and asked if we had any questions, which was very helpful. She even took us to the spot she was planning on getting some shots the day of the wedding. When the wedding day came, they were flawless. As hectic as things can be on the big day, Colleen and her assistant were clam, relaxed and ready to rock and roll. They did a great job of corralling the troops (AKA family, friends) to make sure everyone was where they needed to be, when the needed to be there. A couple of days after the wedding, they had a few images ready for us to view, which was very exciting! We received all of the images back about two weeks after the wedding, which we thought was incredibly quick. That being said, Brad and I would highly recommend Capture Life Moments to others. They will make your big day even better and provide you with a lifetime of beautiful memories.

Capture Life Moments went over and beyond in every aspect. They were there from our engagement, to the bridal shower, rehearsal dinner and of course the big day. It is rare to have my entire family together. Capture Life Moments understood this and in turn took a plethora of... Read More pictures of just my family (35 members). It was no small project.

We are beyond thrilled with our engagement and wedding pictures from Capture Life Moments. After looking at our engagement photos, we didn't think the wedding pictures could be better...but they were! All of our pictures were crystal clear and truly captured the special moments... Read More during our big day! Colleen took our engagement pictures and Ly and Jeanne were our wedding photographers. Colleen edited our wedding pictures. Every photographer we worked with took the time to get to know who we were as a couple and individually. They listened to what we wanted and what we didn't want. They also took the initiative to come up with new, creative ideas for pictures that we LOVED! We had multiple photos to choose from and truly had a hard time deciding our favorite because every one was perfect. One of the best things about the three photographers was their ability to keep the family/wedding party pictures moving the day of our wedding in a friendly manner. On your wedding day, every moment is precious. You want perfect pictures, but you want to enjoy time with friends and family. Ly and Jeanne took amazing pictures but kept picture time moving in a very polite, professional manner. The turnaround time for our pictures was about three weeks. When we saw our wedding pictures for the first time, Colleen made the viewing very special. She took time for us to look through the pictures and shared in our excitement. I would recommend Capture Life Moments to anyone getting married or needing professional photography. They are by far the most professional photographers, and they take extremely high quality pictures.

Meet The Owner


photographer | storyteller | wanderluster 7 years ago, I returned from Iraq and realized that life is simply too short to keep putting my photography dream on hold. I picked up my first digital camera in 2010 and sought out my passion. It's funny how you imagine doing something for so long and then it takes going to war to kick you into high gear about pursuing that one thing. I've loved photography since the day I held a 35mm Film camera in high school. I enjoy listening to and telling stories, life stories, all stories. As a wanderlust, I enjoy traveling all over the world.
