Book far in advance! He books up fast! Best decision we made out of all of our vendors! Photography was one of the most important things to me for my wedding day and I am so happy we found Colin!

Just Book him!
Colin is a pro, and his team is wonderful. We hired Colin for our very colorful wedding and engagement shoot. My Husband and I had a very unique vision for our wedding and engagement photos, and Colin was not in the least bit overwhelmed with our non-traditional vibe. He is a class act and comes prepared for whatever your wedding day throws at you (rain! & Hair/Makeup Delays/ pop up photographers). We knew we will look at these pictures forever and we wanted the best, paid for the best, and got the best! Also, an online mag contacted us to use our engagement pics.... just sayin' lol. He'll for sure be our family photographer as we grow as a family.

If you want amazing wedding photos with someone who is incredibly easy to work with, look no further than Colin Lyons!
We reached out to Colin after viewing his photos online, and met with him over a year before our wedding at his studio downtown. He pulled out a bottle of champagne as soon we arrived, and let us look through his albums (digital and print) while talking through his process. We booked right away for our 9/8/18 wedding and we're so happy we did!
Originally we hadn't planned on getting engagement photos, but Colin included them in his package and we thought they would be good practice. We got great photos and had a lot of fun, even though it was cold and snowy outside. Closer to the wedding, I reached out with our list of photos we wanted to get and to talk through a rain back-up plan, and Colin responded immediately suggesting we connect the week prior to the wedding to confirm and touch base on everything. He had great suggestions for a rain back-up, and totally put our minds at ease.
The day of the wedding he arrived at the hotel where we were getting ready with the second photographer, Jordan. Everyone loved him and Jordan and they were great about working around our hair and make-up team and all the others coming in and out of the room. They fully coordinated our first look which was perfect, and helped to make sure we stayed on time for the rest of the wedding party and family photos. Colin included a photo booth at no additional cost for our wedding (a big hit), and brought another photographer to capture those photos. Throughout the event I barely noticed them there, and he was great about timing our 'sparkler exit' photo so that it didn't kill our dance floor.
In addition to being relaxed and easy to work with, Colin sent over a preview of our photos the night of the wedding. They are AMAZING, and we've received so many compliments on how perfect they are. We can't wait to see all of the photos captured on our special day!
Colin and his team shot our wedding and the experience was great. From the initial meeting , day of and delivery of our wedding album- amazing. Highly recommend him and his talented team.
Colin is so fun and easy to work with!
We've worked with both Colin and Elena and could not be happier with our experiences. Both were professional yet fun and the resulting photos were definitely frame-worthy! Highly recommended.
