About Colin

Photographer Colin Coleman

Hello! I am a Philadelphia photographer specializing in wedding and commercial photography.

Do you want badass wedding photos? Crappy photos suck. Check out my wedding portfolio.

Who I am

The Photographer

I could be cliché and say that I’ve had a camera since I was little, but that just wouldn’t be true – photography found me later in life and that’s something I am grateful for every single day. I truly believe I have the best job in the world! For a very long time, I knew I would never be happy with a normal 9 to 5 and this is absolutely not a normal 9 to 5. I just couldn’t be strapped behind a desk not doing work that was meaningful to me and more importantly, other people. I can honestly say that I still get excited every time I pick up my camera – the adventures never end when I have it with me. I love chaos, rolling with the punches and making split second decisions under pressure. This is the perfect job for me.

The Daddy

If you see me tear up for a second during your Father/Daughter dance, this is why. My absolute most important job. Kenzie Grace is the name of the little girl who owns my heart. She’s literally me in a dress. She has my eyes, dark hair, big bottom lip, she’s super tall and lanky which contributes to her clumsiness and radiates my goofy personality. Seriously, she’s the funniest person I’ve ever met and she doesn’t even try. She’s a diva and she knows it. Future rockstar (doesn’t Kenzie Grace sound like a really great stage name?) She’s a cookie snatcher and movie binger. Craziness. Literally everything I do is for her, she’s my sidekick and partner in crime.

The Ukulele Player

So… what if I told you I occasionally am a weekend rockstar? Would you believe me? The ukulele is a HUGE part of my life. I have met some of my best friends through the 6 years that I have been playing. If you don’t count the trumpet I played for a week in 5th grade, ukulele is my first instrument. I love it because the natural sound is simply a happy sound – it’s a stress reliever. I play all kinds of music from the Beatles to Flo Rida and even some Miley Cyrus. Occasionally I even play at festivals around the country and am a supported artist of KoAloha Ukulele! Fun times, just don’t ask me to play Tip Toe Through the Tulips.

Philadelphia Wedding Photography

There are thousands of Philadelphia weddings every year and I truly believe that each couple is unique. My main focus is creating real relationships with my clients to understand who you are and how I can tell your story, your way.

Features and Accolades

I have been lucky enough to be featured in many distinguished wedding magazines like Lehigh Valley Style Magazine, Philadelphia Magazine, Leo Designs and Numinous Magazine.

It's very hard to get highlighted in a wedding blog, so each time I do - I don't take it for granted! So far, I've been featured in Huffpost Weddings, Munaluchi Bride, and Offbeat Bride.

I've also won multiple awards from SLR Lounge, Wedaward, The Knot, Fearless Photographers, ISPWP and Masters of Wedding Photography.

I am a proud member of Fearless Photographers, International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers, and Masters of Photography

So, I asked my friends to describe me in three words..

Surprisingly, they were pretty nice about it. My friends described me as personable, fun, genuine, laid back, hardworking, ambitious, friendly, honest, kind, curious, bold, adventurous, passionate and most importantly - goofy.
