"We eloped, but knew we would want to be able to share images with family and friends so they could ahare the experience after the fact. Colin was really flexible with our plans (hiked to a CO summit pre-sunrise with all his gear), professional, and friendly but unobtrusive. Aside from him, we were the only two people on the mountain and during our ceremony, he sort of became invisible. The photos came back quickly and were stunning. Colin's photos told our story more beautifully than we could have asked for. Highly recommend!"

"Colin was a great decision for our wedding. With his expertise in landscape and wilderness, he was a good fit for us because we wanted to capture the grandeur of our wedding venue - mountains, gardens, etc. He was extremely professional and helpful during our wedding planning and wedding day. He was a clear communicator, responded regularly to inquiries, and showed up bright and early on our big day to scope out our venue. He was just as excited about the beauty of our venue as we were, which made us know the photos were going to be very special, not cookie-cutter at all. Our families loved working with him. He was funny, amenable, and helpful, going above and beyond and remaining genuine and laid back. We are so happy with our photos. He caught the entire story of our day, made the landscape and lighting work in a magical way, and caught the moments of fun, laughter, and intimacy that only great photographers can do. We highly recommend him for any couples who want adventurous, Montana photography."

"Everything about our experience working with Colin Ruggiero was wonderful! Colin took interest in our specific requests to capture the important events and the bluegrass musicians on film, and he was flexible throughout the evening as the order of events changed. He was knowledgeable about lighting and sound and gave us suggestions on how to improve both to get the best picture. The videography team was respectful to guests and non-intrusive to those who are camera-shy, like me! The most impressive part is the artistic editing. Colin selected all of the must-see moments, omitted the non-eventful footage and created a condensed, high-quality video that is interesting to all viewers. We are so thrilled to have such an amazing video that allows us to re-live our wedding day, and we would strongly recommend Colin to shoot your once-in-a-lifetime event!”
