Welcome to my online photography portfolio. You can find out more about my filmmaking and photography work on my website at www.ColinRuggiero.com or on the social media sites listed here. Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments or just to say hi.

So... I admit to being a little put off by the wedding industry in general.  There are so many vendors out there trying to capitalize on the emotion and gravity surrounding a wedding - trying to leverage that once-in-a-lifetime feeling to charge three times as much as a thing should actually cost.   But I love to shoot weddings. As a photographer with a background in cultural anthropology, I am drawn to them as one of our culture's most beautiful celebrations of love and community.  My approach to weddings is simple:

I am inspired by all sorts of photography and I bring all of these different approaches to my wedding shoots. Much of what I shoot is a non-invasive, photojournalism style but I also enjoy setting up more creative and artsy shots. Of course, I tailor my approach to your individual wedding and preferences. When I shoot a wedding I am there for the entire event. I’ll be there before set-up begins and stay through the end. I believe this is what is required to capture a wedding well.

I select roughly 250-400 images, depending on the length of the wedding, to edit and post in an online gallery. The gallery can be password protected if you wish and this gallery is the best way I know of to share photos with those who couldn’t be present. In addition, all of the photos are optimized and color-calibrated for printing through the professional lab I use and these services are integrated directly into the online gallery. You can order prints, high-resolution digital downloads and everything from wallet photos to giant, museum-quality canvas wall hangings simply by clicking on the photos. For a full list of available products please see this catalog.  

All weddings come with:

- High resolution images delivered via one click download (with unlimited download & printing rights)

- ​Albums and archival grade prints available through partnership with professional print lab

- Multiple cameras with backup equipment on location

My standard rate is $2500 for local weddings and $3000 plus travel for destination weddings.  This rate includes the online gallery and the images on disc.  While I don't offer a bunch of pre-made packages, I can accommodate a wide range of special requests, custom slideshows, engagement shoots, trash the dress sessions, etc. Please contact me for more info on these rates. I’d love to talk with you about your wedding. Feel free to call or email me with any questions or just to say hi at 406-570-9532 or ruggiero.colin@gmail.com. Or use the contact form on my site.
