I love to turn what's in front of my camera into lasting memories in the most beautiful way possible. Each photo session or event I photograph is unique, which ensures a truly personalized experience!
Whether I spend an hour on the beach at sunset with you and your family or am with you all weekend in Mexico capturing your destination wedding, I strive to create priceless images you'll hold close to your heart always. It really is such an honor each and every time I photograph my clients.
I take my job seriously, although my sessions are anything but! I know it can be nerve-wracking getting in front of the camera, but I promise our time together will have more of a fun, comfortable, "friends just hanging out" kind of vibe. Are you ready for the most gorgeous photos of yourself ever?!
I highly recommend Colleen Putman Photography for a family photo session, especially with a little newborn! Colleen's warm and friendly personality made us feel at ease, right from the start and also helped keep our baby very calm.
I'm beyond happy with how our photos turned out and look forward to having Colleen photograph our family again in the future!
Colleen has a gift for bringing out the best in her subjects. Our family brought some challenges to her shoot, from a daughter who would like to be in every shot, a husband who would prefer not to be in any, to active young twin boys.
Colleen made my daughter feel like a supermodel, actually got a real smile from my husband instead of his usual grimace, and even got both boys to cooperate at the same time! We are beyond happy with our photos!
I was so happy I got Colleen to take my portraits! She made me feel so comfortable in front of the camera, which let my true personality come out.
Colleen had such great ideas for locations and helped me to pose in flattering and comfortable ways. It was such a great experience and I absolutely love my senior photos!
First off, what can I say but these pictures are BEYOND amazing. Our biggest regret is that we didn't know you for our older daughter's Bat Mitzvah.
How you managed to capture those glimpses of Allie smiling in the middle of it all is BRILLIANT! You totally captured the feel of the night and these pictures are the best memories we could imagine.

Colleen has photographed both our engagement and wedding photos and we are so happy we trusted her with capturing those special days for us. She is professional while remaining as personable as can be. She makes you feel very comfortable, understands your photo wishes and concerns, and always gets creative shots. I feel like she really captured the essence of our relationship and we will treasure these photos for life.
How many photographers do YOU know would spend HOURS shooting your wedding day and then go back to their room and post a first look so you can see how magical the rest of your photos will be? THANK YOU to the best photographer and friend ever!
I'm still SWOONING over our wedding photos and wishing I could go back and relive the entire day all over again. Feeling so grateful for our amazing photographer. I'm just going to keep saying it... she's a MIRACLE WORKER and I feel so lucky to have worked with someone so sweet, so professional, and most importantly... someone who understands us so well!
When I needed some photos for my new website, I knew I would use Colleen Putman. I had seen her work on a website that I really loved and was very impressed with the striking photos. When we met for the first time at the Met for our photo session, I felt Colleen’s warmth and professionalism. I was a tad nervous but under her gentle and confident guidance, she was able to get many beautiful photos. It was such a pleasure to work with her and she also made it fun. It was an incredible time and I cannot wait to work with her again.
You are amazing! How did you take him in his most comfy clothes and make him look so polished while capturing his personality at the same time?! An A+ for photographing my active 2 year old.
