I grew up living on the beautiful beaches of the outer banks, NC. I attended Liberty University, where I acquired the necessary skill set to take great photos. Amazed by the naturally beauty of the surrounding landscapes all I wanted to do is take pictures. Working this into a concentration for Wedding Photography, I have to say that there is no other job for me. With my wife Lauren(on my right) I love the relaxed style of living that only the outer banks offers. I thank God every day for the life that he has blessed me with.

Rich (and Tom) with ColemanShots is a truly wonderful person and photographer! We used them for both our engagement shot and for our big day, and we couldn't be happier. The photos were exceptional and we had a blast working with them on both occasions! Two HUGE thumbs up!!!

Absolutely go with Coleman Shots!!! We were so impressed and truly in love with how Rich and Tom captured our day, they look like they are ready for a magazine! They paid close attention to details and were very professional. Rich really took the time with me (the bride) with any questions I had and was extremely thorough. On our wedding day what really stood out to me was Rich knew exactly what to do, great critiques on how to pose, fanned out my dress and veil, and even played as my wedding coordinator. He was always watching my husband and I to see if we were happy, made wonderful suggestions during our reception that no one noticed but him. Rich is so passionate about his work and it shines in his photographs! i He is a keeper!!! Looking forward to future photos with him!!!

If you need a photographer in the Outer Banks -- this is the crew to do it. We live in NJ and after doing some research we decided to go with Rich and his group. It was a great decision!

So easy to get along with, incredibly nice, very helpful, prompt with getting back to you and they take amazing pictures. We had Jeremiah and Tom on our day -- they were awesome. Whatever we asked, they were more than willing to get the picture taken.

An overall great experience.

We were so happy with the services from Coleman shots! I was nervous about having 2 photographers for a small wedding (approx 50 people), but everything worked out perfectly. Both Rich and his assistant made us feel comfortable and relaxed. The pictures came out BEAUTIFUL! All the guests at the wedding had great things to say about the photographers. They are professional, but fun at the same time. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Rich and Tom were absolutely awesome!! They photographed both our engagement session and our wedding, and all of the pictures turned out beautiful. Rich would always respond to my emails within a few hours (and trust me, I had a lot of questions). They also showed up for the wedding about an hour earlier than originally planned because it looked like it was going to rain, and they wanted me to have the beach shots that I wanted so much. They made everyone feel so comfortable, and all of our guests kept commenting on how nice the photographers were. I would definitely recommend using Coleman Shots!

We were very pleased with the service we recieved from Rich and his staff! Not only is he one of the most affordable options on the beach, his pictures are amazing! He is a very down to earth guy who works with you and makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera. All of my wedding guests raved of his personality. He responds to emails very quickly, which was very inportant to me! He was very knowledable of the wedding circuit and gave advice on vendors and even assisted on the wedding day with tips for securing my veil, cutting the cake, etc. Very nice guy with a lot of talent! I would highly recommend!

Coleman Shots was amazing to work with. Everyone absolutely loved Rich & Tom for our wedding ceremony and reception. Rich is a funny guy and had everyone laughing which was great for pictures. My pictures are gorgeous. I couldn't be happier. They captured the happiest moments of my life in such a beautiful way. Honestly, i get teary-eyed when I start looking through all of the pics, so that sure says something about their skill!

I highly recommend Coleman Shots!

They were such professionals and exactly the personalities we needed for our wedding, professional, patient, understanding, calm, cool, and fun. Rich did such an awesome job working with us on post-wedding items, he too was amazing with all of the questions answered and photos delivered in a very timely and high quality manner. Can't say enough good things about ColemanShots.

On May 11, 2013 my wife and I got married, we choose Coleman Shots after researching a few of the competition here on the Outer Banks. Coleman Shots did an amazing job on our engagement photos, my wife's bridal shoot, and the wedding and reception photos as well. Rich and his team were not only very professional but they made the whole ordeal of having to take so many pictures enjoyable, and personally I am not one to enjoy having my picture taken. After experiencing a first hand account on the amazing job Rich and his team provided for my wife and I, I would never hesitate on using Coleman Shots again or recommending them to anyone.

Coleman shots were sooo amazing! We knew right after our first meeting with Rich that he was the one - He always answered my e-mails quickly if I had any questions. He did way more than photography the day of the wedding as he has so much experience with weddings and knows things that will come up the day of that I wouldn't even begin to think of. Tom and Griff were so nice and easy to work with as well - We had a great day with them all and so happy they were there to capture our day :)

Dear Brides to be,
ColemanShots is amazing! Our engagement session was so much fun. Rich actually got my fiancé to smile and he makes you feel so comfortable. What can I say other then, hiring ColemanShots was one of the best things I could have done. On our wedding day, we were supposed to have two photographers and got graced with three. Griff, the intern was a wonderful addition to the gang. If you are worried about the photographer being on time... Don't! Rich was there right on time and the other photographers joined right when they were supposed to be there. If there is a picture you want or a certain spot you want your pictures taken, ColemanShots does it. As a bride, I was worry free! No need to freak out or worry about anything. So you ask, why pick ColemanShots. They are fun to work with, on time, friendly, wonderful people and great at what they do. I was looking for some traditional pictures with a modern twist and that is what I got.
Thank you Rich, Tom, and Griff... You all Rock!

The decision to choose ColemanShots couldn't have been easier. Rich is one of the most down to earth person we have ever met and that made working with him that much easier. He encompassed everything we were looking for. Rich could make you laugh and feel super comfortable but then also knew how to tie professionalism and get the job done. We would recommend him to anyone who may be getting married in the OBX or surrounding areas!

My husband and I had a wonderful experience with Coleman shots. Rich was great to work with from start to finish. They were very detail oriented, which was great because I was planning the wedding from over 8 hours away. They made the whole process very easy. They were very funny and helpful on the day of our wedding, which made us feel very relaxed. And the pictures turned out GREAT! We couldn't be happier with the way everything turned out or think of a better way to document our special day or preserve our memories.

My daughter lives in Denver so there was no opportunity for bridal portraits in the months leading up to her wedding on 6/1. Rich worked with me to customize a package to suit our needs, including a portrait session 3 days prior to the wedding. The day of the wedding, Rich and his assistant arrived and immediately began recording the day's activities. Having 2 photographers that day provided for greater coverage of the event. His prices are extremely reasonable and I would recommend him for any occasion!

Rich and the rest of his team are AWESOME! I took my bridal portraits at the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse during a nor'easter and Rich and his intern James worked awesome with the terrible wind and gray sky.. When it came to the wedding, Coleman Shots took SO many pictures. I got a little frustrated at the time, but now I am SO glad they spent so much time with us. Our pictures are perfect:) The Coleman Shots crew is hilarious and can make any one laugh during the stressful times a wedding can bring.

Rich and his wife Lauren are two of the sweetest, most talented people I had the pleasure of working with while planning our wedding.

Rich responded to all of my emails in record time and with utmost professionalism. He would even call to follow-up if emailing became inconvenient, and he answered all of my questions graciously (even the dumb ones!). Due to the fact that I planned our wedding from out-of-state, I truly appreciated how organized ColemanShots made all of our contract paperwork and the care with which Rich handled scheduling and timing.

All of my expectations were met and exceeded. Not only did I have the wedding of my dreams, but Rich and Lauren gave us beautiful photographs that we will have to remember our day for many years to come. I couldn't be more satisfied.

We had a destination wedding on the obx and if you have been to the expo you know that it is very overwhelming because there is so many different vendors. I spent six months doing my research and studying all vendors and photography was the most important to me. First vendor we met with was Rich Coleman and he was so helpful. We talked to him about what kind of wedding we wanted, asked for his advice and ended up using all the vendors he suggested and had one amazing day. He has an amazing personality and makes taking pictures so much fun. Rich and his assistant Tom made the whole family laugh and made taking family pictures a fun stress free experience. After a day of taking pictures it felt like he was already part of the family. The Photography and prices are amazing. He works with you on a payment plan and he is very flexible. Great thing that I loved from the very beginning is that he always answered the phone and if he didnt he called back that day. We loved him, our family loved him and even the little kids loved him! You would be crazy not to choose him to capture your special day. His just that good!!

Rich was great to work with! He was a lot of fun on our wedding day and very flexible when it came to changing some pictures. Definitely a no hassle, laid back kind of guy who takes great pictures. We can't wait to see them all! He also helped fix a little technical difficulty problem with our speaker system right before our first dance! Rich is ready for anything!

Rich was an awesome photographer. He did my bridal portraits and my wedding and the photos were absolutely amazing. I did my bridal portraits the weekend before the wedding and he returned the proofs to me 2 days later so I could display it at the reception the following weekend. I would absolutely recommend Rich and his staff for any wedding or event!!

Rich Coleman has to be the most flexible, easy-to-work-with photographer out there. He was willing to customize packages, hours, and amount of photographers for our wedding day. But way beyond that, Rich had a genuine concern for our satisfaction with the picture results. We had planned to get married on the beach, but the day turned out rainy and chilly. Rich offered to come to our beach house the next day (which was sunny and gorgeous, of course) and take beach photos so we could have some. He took many awesome pictures both on the wedding day and the day after. (What photographer offers to take more time to come out the next day to a completely different location?! He's amazing!) When you book Rich Coleman, not only do you get the above quality of service, but you get it with a great sense of humor and much creativity. He kept us laughing the entire night, took funny shots, meaningful shots, memorable shots, etc, and then surprised us with creative, off-beat photos. He takes basic shots, then he checks with the client to see what their style is...he asked us if we wanted some fun shots or shots with perspective and we gave him the go ahead...we were pleased with the unique shots we got as a result. I feel like I am highly unusually lucky with this wedding vendor find. We couldn't have asked for anything better. Thanks for making our wedding day memorable! We loved having you as a part of our day, Rich!

We were very fortunate to come across Rich Coleman and his photography just in time for our wedding. He made sure to make us feel at ease and we had so much fun getting our pictures taken. Very professional and creative! We actually live in Virginia but since his services were outstanding, we choose to go with him for our wedding day. I personally as the bride searched over 52 photographers in the VA and NC area and found him to be the best!

We pulled our beach wedding together in a short five weeks! Rich was the most flexible and easy going photographer that I spoke with on the outer banks. We were able to craft a package that met our needs and both he and his assistant Nic were a pleasure to work. The images are wonderful, we love the way Rich & Nic were able to capture our big day! If your looking for beautiful shots and a great team - Coleman Shots comes recommended!

Rich is not only an amazing photographer but he is also a great guy. He is very flexible and wants to make sure that the wedding day pictures are exactly how the bride wants them. He even asked me to look up pictures I liked and send them to him so he could get exactly what I wanted. The pictures are amazing anf he is very talented. I have never seen more beautiful wedding pictures. He also likes to change it up so if you want fun, classic, or any other type of wedding picture he can do it all. He is very good with Kandid photos as well. I highly recommend him!
