I wish I could give Colleen 10 stars because 5 does not do it justice! She was absolutely amazing and truly so very talented in what she does.
Let me tell you.. this woman lives for her work! She did our engagement photos and they were PHENOMENAL! We are still gushing over them.. and my goodness you should see our beautiful wedding photos...we just got them back last week and I am the HAPPIEST bride you will ever meet!!! SUCH AN AMAZING JOB!!!
Colleen's work is unparalleled. She has SUCH an amazing vision and executes perfectly each and every time. She is SPECTACULAR!!! Can't wait to have her photograph other moments in our life.
Colleen photographed our wedding on Labor Day weekend this year and let me just say it was AMAZING!! The amount of work she did with me and responded to me before the wedding was a lifesaver and put my mind at ease - she was kind of like a partial wedding planner with me!! The wedding day was perfect with all the poses, the wedding party pics, and just the way she made us feel especially when she and her associate were doing alone shots of us. We were able to get all the photos we wanted and everything turned out breathtaking! I have been recommending her ever since our wedding!! With Colleen you get amazing quality and organization which is worth every last penny!! Colleen rocked every moment of our wedding!!
Colleen was so amazing to work with and we can't recommend her enough!!! She did our engagement pictures and was able to fit us in when we only had 2 days left in town! Our session was extremely fun and comfortable, especially for my fiance who hates getting his picture taken!
I've been pleased to see our clients featured in a number of national and international blogs and publications some of which are listed at right. I love that their weddings get to be experienced by the whole world too!

frequently asked questions
CBP Associates are professional photographers that have trained with and photographed with myself so that they learn my Colleen Bies style of photography. They are there to document your engagement session and wedding day, while you still get all the perks of having me help with your wedding day plans, timeline planning, and post processing and delivery of all your beautiful images. They are wonderful all on their own, or as an alternative should I not be available on your day.
Booking is made as simple as possible. To be fair to everyone, I take weddings on a first come first serve basis. A signed wedding agreement along with a 30% non-refundable booking fee is required to reserve your wedding date. Weddings book quickly so please inquire on your date.
Absolutely! I have been shooting video for nearly 5 years and have a team of videographers that I've worked with over the last few years. All video collections are full day coverage and begin at $4200. Just note this in your submission form so that I can get you all the dets.
Engagement photos are ready within 3 weeks of your session while wedding images will be ready between 4-6 weeks of your wedding date. Either way, you'll see a sneak peek on social media soon after so that way...you've got a little something pretty to peek at while you wait.
Challenge accepted! Fear not my friend. Part of why I love what I do is my ability to really get to know you both and to help showcase your naturalness. Real smiles and laughter and love all around. Let me help you remove that stigma eh?
All your final images will be cared for and edited to the my standard editing. That includes composition, cropping, exposure and color. Any extensive photoshop work such as "airbrushing" or "removing 10 pounds" etc are extensive time consuming work and thus is an additional cost.
