Say YES, to Solas Studios!
We had a remarkably wonderful experience working with Solas Studios, Colleen and Greg! Throughout the process, both were professional, flexible, and made our overall experience VERY easy. That says a lot because we were based on the west coast while planning our wedding and Solas Studios home base is on the east coast. From the start, we could tell that Colleen and Greg were the team we wanted to capture our wedding day. Colleen went above and beyond from start to finish. Through phone calls and emails, we were able to plan the photographic vision of our wedding day with Colleen. She was very prompt at responding and creating time to speak to us directly. She even helped us lay out a timeline for the wedding, which was a tremendous help as she has so much experience and was able to give us several perspectives and ideas for a day of timeline.Sent on 05/21/2019
The day of the wedding, they were at the site well in advance of their intended arrival and were able to organize our day in a way that was smooth and painless for us. We both have large families which lead to challenges getting them in the same place at the same time, but Collen and Greg were able to manage and photograph all that were both scheduled and spontaneous. They were even able to wrangle the ENTIRE family and pull off a photo that we will cherish forever.
Having both Colleen and Greg created a streamlined day because Greg was able to capture the groom while Colleen worked with the bride both during preparations and during the first look. Colleen and Greg balance each other well, both behind the lens and in person. They have their unique eye and will capture the same moment in complementary but separate ways. In person, they work just as well. While shooting the family portraits, Greg was managing the lights and camera while Colleen was organizing the next shot and grabbing the attention of the youngsters all while remaining completely relaxed and happy.
Initially, we were going to forgo an album, but after seeing the spectacular photo's, we chose to proceed with an album that will permanently remind us of our special day. Collen was efficient and supportive narrowing down and arranging our images in the collection.
Colleen and Greg's communication was instrumental both before, during, and after the event, which gave us great peace of mind. We are several months out from our wedding, and four different families have used one of their images as holiday cards.
Colleen and Greg not only work well individually but are also terrific as a team. We were more than satisfied with Solas Studios and will use them again for future special events in the North East. We cannot recommend them highly enough. When it's your special day, you want the best, and Colleen and Greg are the best!

Colleen and Greg were so professional, really on the ball, and extremely helpful throughout our whole wedding planning process and the day itself. They really put their blood, sweat and tears into getting the best pictures for our wedding day. They were also receptive to my ideas of the settings for photos that I wanted, even if it required a bit of hiking!Sent on 09/27/2019
We are waiting for the majority of the photos but the ones I have seen so far were amazing!! I would highly recommend Solas Studios.
Solas Studios's reply:Thank you so much, Joyce, for your kind words about your experience with us, it means a lot to us. Your wedding was absolutely wonderful, and we enjoyed getting to be a part of the adventure with you!

Incredible experience with Solas Studios! This duo brings an amazing combination of professionalism and talent to the table. They captured our wedding day in a way that felt natural and they made sure we got the shots we really wanted. I will always go to Solas Studios whenever I need an event photographer, and you should too!Sent on 09/11/2019
Solas Studios's reply:Thank you, Nettie, for allowing us the privilege of being there with you both on such an extraordinary day! We can't adequately express how lucky we are to have met you both, and experience such a lovely wedding celebration! You both are such a wonderful people; both separately and as a couple! We will always hold your wedding day in high regard, and we know it will be one we talk about for years to come!
It was an honor to work with Solas Studious at a recent Skaneateles New York Wedding. From the moment I reached out to them before the wedding and working together on the day of it was nothing short of a great experience! Outstanding professionalism and just look at their body of work that speaks for itself! I highly recommend Colleen & Greg to capture your once in a lifetime candid moments!
After having worked with Colleen and Greg from Solas Studios at many weddings now, it's easy to see why they're so highly respected in the area. They are the complete package! Always wonderful to coordinate with, and their photography is second to none. Obviously their pictures speak for themselves, but I can't say enough about how talented they are. Breathtaking photos that truly capture the vibe of the day! I highly recommend Solas Studios.
I've had the pleasure to work with Solas Studios several times, and always breath a sigh of relief when I see their names! They "get" the needs that a couple has on their big day - perhaps because they are a sweet couple themselves! They capture the fun, the details and do it all with professionalism and ease.
