The Colagrossis

To us, love is synonymous with motion. Love is a moving, beating, breathing thing that only stops when your heart does. Travel is the perfect metaphor for marriage.

When we first realized we were in love, we found a spot on the map we’d never been to and just took off. That was the beginning of our story and the beginning of an epic wanderlust that we haven’t been able to silence.

Our souls are ignited by creativity, edginess, unconventional love stories, intimacy, trust, and fearlessness. We are non-conformists. We occasionally have crazy ideas, we make inappropriate jokes, and immediately treat you like old friends inviting you into our hearts. We understand what sparks that happy-dance-inducing “Hell-yes!”-emotion when the images represent the love we see in front of us. Capturing images is a partnership; it takes collaboration and a connection to make something truly beautiful.

We prefer hand-crafted to factory made. We use the natural, God-given elements of nature and light around us to expound on the beauty that is already present. We are constantly reading expressions, and anticipating the next laugh. We notice the minute and the uncomplicated; the hands that hold on tightly, the breath before the kiss. We linger with our couples, valuing the time from initial meeting to final goodbye.

Nevertheless, we are not a one-size-fits-all solution. We are not afraid of getting a little dirty, a little crazy, and spending the time it takes to craft the true representation of you at this one moment in time. If you are hesitant to trust us and our vision, and are opposed to taking an adventure, or If the concept of your wedding involves extravagant dresses and Pinterest-perfect details, we might not be the right fit for you.

This is going to be the story you leave behind for your loved ones. Let’s make it a good one.
