I'm flattered you want to read more about little old me! My name is pronounced 'So-Lay' and it means "The Sun" in French. A LOT of people call me 'Sunny'. I'm a Colorado native... I know, I'm a unicorn! I grew up in the Denver metro area and attended college at Colorado State University where I majored in preforming arts and met my soulmate and partner in this crazy thing we call life. I found photography after graduation and while I was working as an administrative assistant for a local studio. After shooting weddings for four years while also holding a full-time job, I took a leap of faith in 2015 to focus solely on my photography. IT WAS THE BEST DECISION I EVER MADE!
When I'm not out photographing the best couples in Colorado, I'm snuggling at home with my two border collies and three cats while watching Star Trek with my husband. I also love to go hiking, ride dirt bikes and going to see my favorite sport, MotoGP.
And because we've come this far, you should probably know a few embarrassing facts about me:
- I love 60's music!
- I never miss an episode of 'The Price is Right'. It's on my bucket list to go...
- I love playing Mario games. I can kick my husbands butt at Super Mario 3!
- I'm a Rock N' Roll girl at heart with an inner nerd who frequently makes an appearance
- The "Cupid Shuffle" gets stuck in my head more often then I'd like to admit...
- My husband tells me I would put blue cheese on cereal if I didn't think he would judge me..... he's right.
- I'm totally that annoying person who says hi to every dog she sees
- I apologize to inanimate objects when I run in to them
- I can't dance, but I LOVE to dance!
"Soleil absolutely crushed it on our wedding day. Not only were her photos stunning, she was highly professional, timely, and organized. She captured the most intimate moments of the day just as well as the candid shots of our friends and family. In particular, Soleil's control of light was impressive, ranging from bright, sunny Colorado blue-sky-day to moody, indoor Madmen style scenes. I cannot recommend her enough to you and your spouse for your wedding. You should probably book her now because Soleil is clearly a rising star in the industry." - Audrey and Desmond - 9.17.2017
"Swing Photo Colorado did both our engagement and wedding photos, and we absolutely loved working with Soleil! My husband and I are not huge fans of having out pictures taken, but Soleil made the entire process easy and fun. She is so incredible organized and communicative and she takes the time to get to know you as a couple. She also has great suggestions on locations for photo shoots. The pictures turned out amazing, and we received so many compliments on them. I feel so lucky that we found Swing Photo Colorado, and we will be recommending them to all of our family and friends!"

She was communicative and professional throughout the entire process and so easy and fun to work with. I'll be cherishing these photos forever!
