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.

We had such a good experience with Colleen! We have a toddler and even with his chaotic energy, Colleen got some great shots! You can tell that she has a lot of experience wrangling kids and is able to really capture an authentic portrait of your family! She was also extremely easy going and super easy to talk to. I look forward to working with Colleen again!

I contacted Colleen through Thumbtack because we – myself, another mom and 2 teenage girls, one a birthday girl, wanted to have a photoshoot in SoHo. Colleen immediately responded after I reached out. We had a nice conversation that involved the business arrangement but not only that, she offered to help identify photoshoot locations and assist with our color theme –what we would wear! Before our conversation ended, she told me to call her with any questions before the event. Later on that week, we did coordinate regarding the location to make sure it was feasible both logistically and artistically. On the day of the photoshoot, she arrived on time and after waiting a few minutes good naturedly for the rest of my party to finish with the bathroom, she started shooting. She was in charge but was open to our input. She was actually quite creative. One shot in particular delighted me –it was something only a professional photographer would think of – but I’m not telling! It was a fun experience and the pictures came out great. I really couldn’t have asked for anything more.

Colleen was absolutely amazing with my clients. She met with them at an apple orchard and did a fall photo shoot. They were very pleased with their experience with her

FAQs

  • 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!
