Introduction: 🌻 Please Be Advised 🌻 Thumbtack is a wonderful platform that connects professionals with future clients. However, this platform charges us for each initial message sent, whether booked or not. With that in mind, please respond with serious inquires only so I can keep my small business on here. Thank you! -Colleen Warm, passionate and detail oriented lifestyle photographer. My goal is to create a safe, comfortable session space for us to capture special moments in you and your families lives! As a special education teacher by trade, I aim to make everyone feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera. I look forward to creating an album together that you are proud to share.

Portrait Photography

We hired Colleen to take family portrait pictures. She's an amazing photographer, and really fun person to work with. She made the shoot very relaxing and pleasant experience. Her attention to details is extraordinary. Bonus points for bringing hand warmer in cold weather :) Our son loved it.

Engagement Photography

Colleen was extremely helpful and got me out of a tough spot when my initial photographer canceled on me with only two weeks until my engagement. She helped my now fiancé and I navigate poses and set up of our photo shoot and was extremely helpful with the surprise engagement and capturing the perfect moments for us. Overall great experience and would recommend her services any day

Wedding and Event Photography

If you are reading this then do yourself a favor and book CM Photography immediately!!! I had the pleasure of hiring Colleen for my sister’s wedding and I truly cannot recommend her enough. She was absolutely excellent from start to finish! From the very beginning Colleen responded to all messages quickly and had an open line of communication throughout the whole process. She was always a message or phone call away if needed. On the day of the wedding Colleen went above and beyond in every way to make sure my sister had the perfect day captured in photographs. She had a wonderful laid back attitude that put everyone at ease. My sister usually hates getting her picture taken but Colleen made it such a fun and easy going process. Not only is Colleen an excellent photographer with an eye for the perfect picture but she is a genuinely great person and was a pleasure to be around. I wish I could give 10 stars instead of 5 because CM Photography truly deserves it!!!

Portrait Photography

Colleen is truly exceptional! Professional, kind, and a pleasure to work with! She captured the most beautiful newborn photos of my son and was able to edit and send me the album the SAME DAY, which blew me away! She went above and beyond and I’m so grateful! Highly recommended photographer! :)

Colleen did our wedding and honestly we both couldn’t have asked for anything more perfect. We actually searched for photographers before asking her but the quality wasn’t what we were looking for. She really makes the effort to focus on making that moment special for her clients. She actually did our engagement and wedding. Her kindness and professionalism were the difference and will not make you regret hiring her.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I provide competitive pricing that also values my time poured into preparation, the shoot itself, and the post-editing process. My rates are standard, but travel fees up to $200 may be applicable for distances over 100 miles.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    My favorite part of photography is connecting with new people and helping them tell their story! When we first make contact, I’ll ask you questions and we will chat about your vision for the pictures. Once we have a shared idea, we will find the perfect location, coordinate colors to match the landscape, and match the timing according to the season. Together we will create an album you are proud to share!

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I moved to Germany at 15 years old and was inspired by the architecture and people to begin experimenting with digital photography. Upon returning to high school in the US, I began taking courses in composition and Photoshop. Upon college graduation I moved to South Korea to pursue teaching and continued my passion while gaining more experience with DSLR cameras . In 2018 I opened CM Photography based out of Daegu, where I began with weddings, engagements and couple shoots throughout the expat community. I have always had a passion for capturing special moments in peoples lives, helping to tell their unique story, and creating beautiful art!
