More than just a Photographer
Colbe took hundreds of gorgeous photos on our wedding day (despite the rain!) that my wife and I will cherish forever, but the photo that really sums up Colbis Photo wasn't taken by Colbe at all. One of our bridesmaids captured a shot of Colbe, with one camera under each arm, assisting my soon-to-be wife (and her 15lb dress) down a flight of stairs prior to the beginning of our ceremony. There were a lot of reasons that initially drove us to hire Colbis Photo for our wedding, but it was seeing THAT picture that confirmed for me that we made the correct choice.Sent on 11/26/2018
See, what I learned during my wedding is that there's more to a good photographer than good shots. Anyone with a decent phone can take a good picture (I've taken some stunners of my own with my iPhone 6), and there are probably dozens of other photographers in the NW Ohio area whose pictures and prices are just as good as Colbe's. The difference is, you get more than just great photos with Colbis Photo. You get professionalism... patience... vision... feel... You get a passion for the art and for the moment that rivals the passion between the two people getting married. And since you can't teach passion, you've got to take it when you have the chance. Colbis Photo is your chance.
Colbe went from a stranger at a wedding show, to our engagement photographer, to our wedding photographer, to our friend. He's a great photographer and an even better guy. You'd be lucky to have him shoot your wedding.
Colbis Photo's reply:Michael, I’m so happy that you noticed not only the photos but also the little things I do throughout the day to really work to help my couples! I like to do all I can do to make your wedding day as good as possible. You both were so wonderful to work with and really are so happy and in love. I look forward to seeing your love grow, as you said being good friends!

The Perfect Balance of Professionalism and Personal Touch
Based on my experience with Colbis Photo here is my take aways...
Colbe is a fantastic photographer. He is a master of lighting, and capturing candid moments.
He really breaks down any inhibitions you have about having your photo taken. He wants you to have fun on your day and not stress at all. He genuinely cares about your marriage. He wants you to be on cloud9 all day and make sure everything is going smoothly and wants you to really enjoy your time with him.
He not only wants you to have great images, but he also wants you to enjoy your time with him, and based on my experience you won't be disappointed!
He is extremely charismatic and upbeats and that even shows in the people he hires to help him. You find yourself thinking of him and his staff as friends and guests on the big day but somehow at the end of it they put in some real work that shows in the final products.
Best man for the job no doubt!Sent on 12/10/2019

Amazing Wedding Photos!
We hired Colbe to do both our engagement and our wedding pictures and we couldn't be happier with the results! He was super flexible and understanding when we had to change the date of our engagement session! During our wedding day, he was amazing to work with,! He kept everybody organized and made everybody laugh while stay professional! He even helped all the groomsmen with their pocket squares! I highly recommend booking him for your wedding! Thanks again for everything!Sent on 10/29/2020

I would highly recommend Colbe to everyone! He is highly professional and was happy to answer my emails when I had questions leading up to the day. He also paid close attention to the timeline of the day and making sure he wasn’t missing any pictures we wanted. He is also cool, calm, and go with the flow which honestly made this highly anxious bride feel better!Sent on 09/27/2020

Nicole Dailey · Married on 08/01/2020
Colbis Photo is amazing!! We had the best time with Colbe and Matt!! It was raining on our wedding day and neither my husband or I had any ideas of different locations for our pictures. Colbe recommenced the coolest warehouse in downtown Toledo, and it was awesome!! Our pictures were everything we could have wanted and we got them SOO quickly. Definitely a must have vendor!!!Sent on 08/15/2020
Courtney Hall · Married on 07/18/2020
Wouldn’t recommend anyone else!
Colbe went above and beyond on our big day. Between getting the most perfect shots to getting my husband and I drinks. He definitely goes outside of his job description to make you happy! Amazing hype man and overall just an amazing person to spend your day with! We highly recommend doing engagement sessions AND wedding day with him, he really just takes your vision and makes it a reality!Sent on 10/12/2020

Best Wedding Photographer in Toledo Area!
Colbis Photo did a FANTASTIC job capturing my wedding day. Not only is Colbe extremely easy (and fun) to work with, but his shots and editing style is beautiful. The color and lighting he captures in his images is spot on and never overdone like other vendors I have seen. I highly recommend booking Colbis Photo for your wedding or big event - thanks again Colbe (and Jason) for helping make my wedding day so special!!Sent on 11/12/2019

Amazing! Look no further!
Colbe and Matt were fantastic! A few days before Colbe texted me with backup plans in case it rained on the day of my wedding. No bride likes rain on their wedding day but Colbe did everything in his power to make sure the day was perfect. Colbe was so encouraging and positive even though I was quite upset with the weather. He had indoor spots in mind where we could get shots before we headed to the reception. These spots were perfect. Colbe and Matt were so goofy that it helped make our “laughing pictures” seem authentic (since I cannot fake laugh for the life of me). Matt and Colbe were such a great pair and I hope you guys get to experience how great these guys are. They truly will make your day full of laughs, effortless, and beautiful. I wouldn’t have been able to choose anyone better!Sent on 11/08/2019

Colbe is professional, kind, and so much fun to work with. After our meeting with him, we knew right away we wanted him to take our wedding photos. He responds quickly to any questions or concerns you may have, he is flexible on dates and times to meet, he is knowledgeable and offers great advice for the wedding timeline, and his photography skills are phenomenal. He did an amazing job capturing every special moment of our wedding day. He made our day enjoyable, fun, easy, and laid back. He finished our sneak peek and our final wedding photos faster than any other photographer that we know of from previous family and friends experiences, which was so exciting! His final photos gave us a chance to relive our day and see our wedding through other people's eyes. He created beautiful photos that we will be able to frame and reminisce on for the rest of our lives :) I can't thank him or appreciate him enough for making my husband and I feel beautiful and handsome on our day!!!Sent on 11/04/2019

My photographer & our friend.
After meeting with Colbe the first time to get a feel for his personality & work, I was 100% confident in him IMMEDIATELY. He was so professional, he had do many examples to show us in exactly the style we were looking for. There was different options to pick from, & he really spent his time getting QUALITY shots. I was so happy with his work, I truly feel as though I would have regretted choosing anyone else. The day of my wedding, it just felt like he was supposed to be there. He was laughing and getting along with our bridal party & his second shooter was so sweet and helpful. We got some amazing shots & the pictures were edited so quickly. When it was all done, he shipped us a custom leather box with our names on it & our flash drive in it. I would recommend Colbe to every single person I met forever. He is now a personal friend!Sent on 11/03/2019
Colbis Photo's reply:Harley....wow you and Ryan both are such cool and happy people! Experiencing your day with you, seeing the devotion, the love, the smiles, and all the happiness in your eyes.

Capturing our love through a camera lens!
Colbe was amazing! Not only does he have such a welcoming personality, but he truly has the best interest of his clients at heart. We met with him beforehand to get to know each other and for him to discover more about our vision for engagement and wedding pictures. We haven’t laughed so hard meeting a stranger! He’s passionate about showing the love you have for each other through his lens. If you want a photographer that makes you feel comfortable, is willing to explore and try new things, and will put YOU first, then he’s your you guy! Shoutout to Matt too! He was fun to work with as well!!Sent on 11/10/2019

Would Recommend to Anyone!
We couldn’t possibly be happier with Colbe and his services. He took our engagement and wedding photos, and he was very professional the whole way through.
On the day of the wedding, he was also a coordinator, delegator, and a friend for when I was on the verge of freaking out.
We got our sneak peeks two days after the wedding, and the rest of the pictures a week after that. They’re all beautiful! Everyone keeps asking who took our pictures. We will direct all of our engaged friends straight to him!Sent on 10/08/2019
Colbis Photo's reply:Allie thank you so much! I was so happy to be able to be a part of your day, Im glad we were able to keep the rain at bay and have a gorgeous day! I so look forward to seeing your beautiful family grow!

Callie West · Married on 08/17/2019
We knew from the first time meeting Colbe that we wanted to work with him. Especially because he has covered weddings at The Summit, where we were getting married. His photos turned out beautifully and we received many compliments. He was responsive, flexible, and worked well with our vendors. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a reliable, funny and energetic photographer!Sent on 08/28/2019
