about ...
John and I met on the set of a catalog/fashion shoot. I was the hired makeup artist, John was shooting the campaign. Our creative working relationship and friendship quickly blossomed, we were married four years later in N.W. Montana. Our destination wedding inspired us to combine our skills in photography and beauty specifically for weddings. Our business started as Illuminated Bride for photography & beauty, we recently changed it to our first names. Eighteen years in the fashion and advertising side of our respective fields has taken us around the world from the South Pacific to Nepal working on documentaries, television commercials and editorials. We bring our extensive experience in photography, makeup and hair to every wedding we photograph.
We hope to share our extensive experience with you and add to your happy wedding day memories! Read less

INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Photojournalism
What do your packages include?
Digital Files, High Resolution Images, Negatives
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
Images are skillfully edited and color adjusted. Black and White is included for a beautiful collection of images with a professional and artistic presentation.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
John is our principal photographer he has 20 years experience in photography, he is also a director of photography (D.P.) and lighting director on commercials. His lighting experience is extensive. His travels have put his talents to the test under many different conditions. Please read his bio at our About page.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Is your media preference film or digital?
In the past John used strictly film he stayed loyal to this medium in the 
 first few years of the digital boom, he finally made his transition to digital when he photographed a wedding in India. This was an intense 
 3 day event with many different rituals, lit only by firelight. It was then that he fully appreciated the range of capture that digital was able to perceive (without added light or the use of flash that would take away from the natural beauty of the moment) Digital has come a long way and if you have an experienced photographer that understands both film and digital you can rest assured that your imagery will have the beauty of film with the range of capture using digital. It is by far the way to go, it was not an easy sell for a photographer that started with film but digital eventually proved its worthiness.
How many photographers do you work with?
We typically have 2 cameras at every wedding we photograph. Colette will most often take second camera when the days beauty schedule permits. We also have a select pool of photographers that meet our high standards of gracious personal manner and professionalism as well as artistic and technical ability (of course)
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes, we are the principal artists.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
Never in the same day. Very rarely do we take 2 weddings in the same weekend! It all depends on the logistics and timing. We like a happy work flow as much as our clients do! Our reputation depends on it.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Yes, absolutely.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Always.Absolutely without fail!
Do you charge hourly or full day?
We prefer to shoot the entire wedding day and do not have hourly packages. We do support unique wedding requests whenever possible.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
Dinner is usually our only true break. Meals are provided and we have dinner while the guests are dining. A perfect time since no one really appreciates having their photo taken while they are eating. A wedding is constantly moving for us and we do not have much time to sit back and relax. With this said we are very aware to stay unobtrusive.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Yes.
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes.

It was extremely important for my husband and I to find photographers who we felt could capture our wedding day in the most natural way possible. We wanted the process to be fun and we wanted to feel a connection with the people who would be capturing our special day.

From the very first meeting, to the Big Day, John and Colette were wonderful to work with. Their genuine personalities, kind hearts, pure talent, and professionalism, all come together to create not only wonderful photos but a joyful experience. Their process feels natural and comfortable like spending time with close friends. John and Colette provide the balance of being present and giving just enough direction to create the perfect photo while still maintaining a natural and non intrusive atmosphere. We cannot express enough how thrilled we are with the talent of John and Colette, and would recommend them without hesitation.

We had a great experience from start to finish, from our initial meeting to the follow up with our images! Colette addressed many of our questions and concerns with informative articles professionally and promptly. John and Colette worked with us within our timeline, offering valuable suggestions and ideas for our day. They even offered us a great deal on a second photographer!
Our images are amazing and we are excited to share them through some DIY album projects. Colette again gave us some great recommendations! Our day went by so fast, but we are so glad we have these beautiful images to look back on and remember our day!

Hiring a really good photographer was the one thing friends advised me not to skimp on, and I’m so glad I heeded their advice. John and Colette are incredibly professional and detail-oriented. I love their team approach, which allows them to capture different aspects of the event which are happening simultaneously. They are also very pleasant, warm people to be around—which is important on such a special day!

Before we met we negotiated a very clear and precise contract. About 6 months out we had an in-person consultation during which got to know each other and Colette did a trial run on hair and makeup. During the following months we were in frequent contact, going over the details of the wedding timeline so that Colette and John knew exactly what we wanted photographed and when. She emailed with my bridesmaids to be sure that they had the looks they wanted for the wedding too. On our wedding day Colette did a fantastic job on all of our hair and make-up. She made us look gorgeous, and was flexible when I changed my mind about the hairstyle I wanted at the last minute. Both John and Colette exude competence. I felt really comfortable letting them guide me in poses. They were patient when my husband and I were reluctant to leave the party to take special shots which now we are so grateful that we have (as they knew we would be). And without my being aware of it at all, they took beautiful shots of the scenery, flowers, cakes, etc… All in all, we are thrilled with their work and would recommend them highly to anyone.

I was highly impressed with John & Colette! The photos of my November Wedding turned out incredibly. The photos were not only beautiful, but appeared to be works of art.
As many brides, I had no clue of how much work and planning went into a Wedding. John & Colette met with my Fiance and I several times to go through the details and to create a timeline in order to ensure that everything ran as smooth as possible on the special day. Colette did my make-up and hair and I truly felt like a princess! I was going to cut that luxury due to budget restraints, however I am so glad that I did it, because she made me look like a movie star.
The day goes by so fast and so it is crucial that the photos reflect every aspect of the "perfect" day. This incredible team will capture the beauty that radiates through you from the inside out. I highly recommend John & Colette Photography & Beauty!

Finding the right Photographer(s) was the highest priority task in planning my July 2011 wedding. Regardless of what lovely location, or magical gown I found, I knew those precious moments are over in a flash, and that I had better work hard to find just the right person/team to capture every last detail!

John and Colette are all that I had hoped for, and so much more!

The examples in their website albums are breathtaking! Their attention to detail and ability to capture the most elusive magical moments & expressions was true to their examples. They captured virtually everyone's personality in subtle, priceless candid photos. I have past experiences at weddings with other more forceful, less charismatic photographers, and I know this can put a big dent in your special day; however EVERYONE loved John and Colette! They blended so well into our wide variety of personalities, and each picture has the feeling that it was taken by a dear member of the family.

Things I appreacitated most ~
* Pre-event connections:
1. We (my fiance, Colette & John) met initially, and spent a few hours talking and getting to know each other. They are amazing human beings and a warm and welcoming couple. We had a great time chatting, and really appreaciated their great recommendations of local eateries after our meeting too!
2. Very clear contract and everything was just as promised.
3. I met with Colette for a "practice run" for Beauty (hair & make-up) - so much fun! I looked so good when I got home, my fiance took me out for an impromptu date night saying, "you look too good to just go home!" ;)
4. Many, many phone calls and emails to dial in every last detail, as well as to come up with a personalized game plan and a timeline that was perfectly aligned with that of the other vendors.
5. Final pre-event meeting to talk about the focal points and people. They really took a lot of time understanding who the key people were in our life and what the imporantat things were to capture for us!

* Colette is a calming presence and a gifted artist! The "day of" is always chatoic. I know this from being a brides-maid several times over. It can get away from you quickly, and you can become frazzled easily. Colette kept me in the moment, and all while she transformed me into "The Bride"! I can not say enough about how many compliments I received on my hair and make-up... It was breathtaking, and every bride should have that experience!

* John leaves no stone unturned! I am the type of person who appreciates the nature, the details, the decor, and I have the most fantastic images of it all! He finds the perfect angle and turns easily overlooked significant structures, flowers and decor into gorgeous works of art.

* Flexible, patient, fun-loving! The event went off without a hitch, and largely because of the timeline they had provided. Again, everyone loved them and they did not have it easy with some of my more "difficult to round up" family members!

All in all, and as I'm sure you've already gathered from the above, I very highly recommend John and Colette! A better Photography and Beauty team... you will not find!

As a bride and groom we spend so much time thinking about how to make our day feel as special as possible. But when the day comes it goes by quickly. Nothing is more dear to us than the photos John and Colette took of our wedding. Natural, calm and collected, John and Colette blended in with the crowd catching every nuance and personality of the event. It is one thing to pick a photographer based on the photos- agreeably an important part. But when your photographers personalities are calm, confident, happy, and relaxed, not only are you, the bride and groom relaxed, so are your guests. The proof is in the pictures.
Thank you John and Colette for adding so much to all our events by just being your amazing selves. We are thankful for your amazing artful eye. And the result- as the cliché goes- pictures for a lifetime.

John and Colette are an exceptional photography and beauty team, besides being warm and wonderful people. At every stage of the process -- from the first meeting at the studio to walking through our unique venue, from the engagement session to the make up trial, the wedding day, and afterward, John and Colette went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. They really take pride in their work and it shows.

For make up and hair, I didn't have very specific ideas. Colette was really patient to work with me until we got to something that I liked. I never looked too made up, which was most important to me, and it was great to have touch ups all night, especially with a 90 minute ceremony and a costume change!

We had a long and chaotic Indian wedding with so much to cover, so we really needed two cameras. John and Colette seemed to love the challenge. Colette shot 'second' camera after finishing make up, and worked really well together with John. Our photographs truly captured the spirit of our day and we couldn't be happier with our choice.

Like all good photographers, John and Colette have their own particular style and aesthetic, and it comes through clearly in their images. If you respond to them the way I did, then hire them and be assured you won't have to worry about a thing!

John and Colette went above and beyond to make sure that we had the best pictures we could possibly have from our big day. They were professional and experienced yet blended into our wedding with ease. We wanted to be comfortable with our photographers while at the same time we needed them to be able to take control in order to get those shots that hang on your wall for the rest of your life. John and Colette made us feel comfortable and at ease which resulted in amazing photos.

When you pick a photographer you are picking someone who is going to capture an important moment in your life. They are invited into your personal space and sharing in those moments with you. You want them to see those moments but let them organically happen. I couldn't have asked for two people more at ease, skilled and able to do just that.

It was also important that we have two photographers that could shoot from different angles while events were taking place simultaneously. We had a large wedding and having two photographers helped us to capture so many of our friends and family.

Colette did my bridal hair and makeup. It was important to me that I looked like the freshest and prettiest version of myself. I wanted classic timeless beauty and Colette completely understood my vision. She takes the time to work with you on your "look" before the big day. I have had my hair and makeup done for many weddings and Colette was the first person who actually listened to what I wanted and helped me to improve upon it.

We were sent a CD of all of our pictures after the wedding and I also used the website provided by John and Colette to order prints. The quality of the prints was outstanding and I would recommend ordering from this website.
John and Colette went above and beyond to make sure that we had the best pictures we could possibly have from our big day. Read more...
John and Colette went above and beyond to make sure that we had the best pictures we could possibly have from our big day. They were professional and experienced yet blended into our wedding with ease. We wanted to be comfortable with our photographers while at the same time we needed them to be able to take control in order to get those shots that hang on your wall for the rest of your life.

John's photography was my and now my husband's favorite when we started looking for our destination wedding. From the first time I spoke with Colette she was very kind, helpful, and professional. Her response time to email and phone calls was extremely timely.

We met them 2 days before the wedding in Montana and I never doubted they would deliver. John had already been to the wedding venue and found great ideas for places to shot pictures.

During my beauty run through and morning of the ceremony Colette ended up meeting most of both of our families and friends. She remained very professional but fit right in.

Having Colette do my make-up and hair and then my two Matrons of Honor the morning of the wedding was such a relief. Throughout the wedding Colette was more then willing to touch up my hair and lips as needed. Which was amazing since the wind was blowing and the wedding was outside.

Once Colette was done with my hair she picked up a camera and was the second photographer. She does an amazing job taking pictures and offered a different view from John's. Her versatility makes them a wonderful duo.

They were around us for 12 hours and never once were in the way. The groom would agree! Both fathers were impressed by how much they "worked" that day.

I can't describe to you how amazing the photos turned out to be, but I can say that I will never regret choosing them to shot our wedding day. I would hire them again in an instant.
