Hi! My name is Kaitlin Colston and my passion is telling others stories through photography. With my cameras, I capture the still frames of your life. I do this so you can enjoy and relive the best moments of your life again and again.

I live to capture beauty, beginnings and families coming together. My goal as an artist is to capture images that are timeless and creative portrayal of your wedding. As a narrator, I want to show the emotion of the day through amazing portraits. My style is a mix of natural and posed portraits with a hint of lifestyle photojournalism. Fashion magazines and fine art photographers inspire me.

I have my Bachelor’s Degree in Photography from one of the best photography schools in the country. I didn’t stop at school though; my photography skills are constantly evolving through workshops and tutorials. I’m always learning new techniques and aiming to take the quality of my work to the next level. I do this to make sure your photographs preserve your memories and are creative and beautiful works of art. It is my goal to provide you with amazing photos that capture what your day was like and tell your unique story. I am always looking for moments and artful images that capture them.

I have a fun loving personality and I strive to use it to create a fun and memorable experience for you. We will meet several times before your wedding for coffee, engagement sessions, and a final meeting to go over all the wonderful details you have planned out for your wedding day. You will have my full attention every step of the way. By the time your wedding day occurs I will seem like a friend, not just a stranger with a camera!

I am based in Phoenix, Arizona, but I will go anywhere for your wedding day and engagements! I love to travel. I have shot weddings all over the country in places such as Pennsylvania, San Diego, Kansas City and Chicago. I would love to sit down and hear more about your wedding day! Send me an email and we can meet for coffee and get to know each other!

I had a hard time finding a photographer for my wedding and I searched the web endlessly. I finally came across Kaitlin's website and immediately knew that she was the photographer for me. I called her and we set up a time to meet and everything fell into place shortly after that. She did our engagement photos as well as our wedding photos- both turned out amazing. Kaitlin truly captured every moment on our special day. She is very professional and super sweet and made my husband and I feel comfortable. She was always early to our meetings and was very easy to get a hold of- email worked best for us. Her communication was awesome. I highly recommend you use Kaitlin Colston Photography for your wedding, she will not let you down. I can honestly say that my wedding pictures are phenomenal . . . not just because they are my wedding photos, but because Kaitlin knew how to capture the special moments on camera. Another thing I really like about Kaitlin is her editing style. The photos are professional and clean and are not "fake" - by fake, I'm talking about the photographers that edit every little detail to where the photo doesn't even look like you anymore. Overall super easy to work with, friendly, nice, professional, excellent communicator, great price! LOVE HER! Use her for your wedding, you won't regret it! :)

Kaitlin was the best choice we could have ever made for our wedding photography. I called around a few photographers and although the style of photography was important, I also wanted someone who I felt comfortable with. This was the case with Kaitlin, she's warm, friendly and although very professional and knowledgeable, never made us feel like our opinions or suggestions didn’t' matter. She answered every phone call, every email and was very flexible. Her pricing is extremely reasonable, and when we saw our pictures we knew our investment was a made well one. We would absolutely recommend her.

She met with us before the wedding to look at the venue and also ask questions, which then translated into the pictures being exactly what we wanted. I might add we had a great time with her too! The day of the wedding was a blur (as it is for any bride I'm sure) but somehow she managed to organize our entire families to make sure we didn't miss pictures with anyone (even aunts and uncles!). We got compliments on our choice of photographer from family and friends who appreciated she wasn't a pushy or bossy photographer like some can be. She captured every moment, more than that, our story and the happiness of the day. I re-lived my wedding day and still do every time I see them. I believe she's a story teller at heart because her pictures do just that tell the story of the couple and their day in a very unique way. And since our wedding was Jane Austen inspired I will end this review by saying:

It is a truth universally acknowledged that every bride to be is in need of a good photographer...

We are so glad we had Kaitlin!

Kaitlin is an amazing photographer, and we're so happy that we found her! She spent Friday night at our rehearsal dinner and her entire afternoon and evening with us on our wedding day, documenting the ceremony and reception, and she was so friendly and fun that she fit in perfectly with our group! She did a very thorough job, and took wonderful pictures not only of the main events but of all the small details along the way, including my jewelry, our rings, and our place settings and favors. I'm so glad that she did -- we were so busy running around that day that we didn't even get to see some of those details ourselves! She took pictures from so many different angles and settings that it's hard to believe she works alone! Kaitlin always responded quickly to phone calls and emails, met with us for over an hour before our wedding to make sure we were on the same page (we really hit it off here!), was very open to suggestions about the kinds of pictures we wanted, and sent us thousands of beautiful pictures to choose from, in color and in black and white. We own the rights to all of our photos, so we're free to print and copy them as we choose! We love the flexibility that gives us, and we can't wait to start working on our albums -- so many amazing pictures to choose from! Definitely consider Kaitlin Colston for your wedding photography -- we're so glad we did! :)

It was a wonderful experience working with Kaitlin. She made us both feel so comfortable during our intimate outdoor ceremony and it really shows in the pictures. She was incredibly attentive and made sure she knew exactly what we wanted captured on our big day. We enjoyed working with her so much that we plan on using her for a future maternity and family shoot. If you're camera shy and a bit awkward like myself Kaitlin is the photographer to work with. She was great.

Kaitlin was wonderful! Our engagement photos and wedding photos were absolutely gorgeous. The best thing about Kaitlin is that she listens to her clients and delivers the images they want, while maintaining her own artistic integrity. She was a blast to work with!

My husband and I used Kaitlin as our photographer for engagement and wedding photos. In addition to being very reasonably priced and fast with getting our pictures to us, Kaitlin was fantastic to work with. My husband and I both appreciated the direction she gave us and our wedding party, as none of us were very comfortable in front of the camera, without making anything look too cheesy or staged. We also marveled at her skills in wrangling our large extended family quickly for pictures immediately following the ceremony. We were shocked with how well they turned out, and they've become favorites of all our parents and grandparents.

One of the things I valued most about Kaitlin was her ability to pick the perfect venues for engagement and wedding party pictures based upon our personalities and style. When it rained on our wedding day, she even had a gorgeous indoor backup location ready, and I think I like the setting even more than the original outside location we'd selected.

I was also very grateful to Kaitlin for her flexibility and willingness to work with our unique situation. My husband and I spent the year before our wedding working in Africa and were in another state until the week of our wedding. But Kaitlin still stayed in close contact with us by Skype and email, and we felt like we knew her before we ever met in person!

Many of our wedding guests said that they hadn't even noticed Kaitlin was there during the ceremony or reception because she is so good at blending in and capturing pictures that wouldn't have been nearly as good if people had been aware of the camera.

I would highly recommend Kaitlin as an affordable, skilled, easygoing photographer that is great at working with families, couples uncomfortable with the camera, and anyone else looking for gorgeous pictures!

Kaitlin was a wonderful photographer/artist to have on my wedding day! She was willing to travel across the country just for us :) Even though she had never been to my wedding location before, she knew exactly what she was doing and where she wanted to take different shots. She was completely comfortable and professional around my family and friends and never just stood around, she was always shooting! Kaitlin is a truly talented and gifted photographer! I would recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding photographer! She is the best!

She was great and I highly recommend Kaitlin! We love our pictures! Thanks Kaitlin for capturing our special day so well and giving us beautiful images to have to treasure forever!!

This photography served as an intern and second shooter at my wedding prior to starting her own company; however we ended up being more impressed with her photography and service than the primary shooter we had hired. I recommend her without reservation.
