I understand that it sometimes feels awkward to have your photo taken. That's why I've studied, practiced, and developed a natural method to make you feel comfortable in front of my camera. I utilize every day movement, conversation, and games to help you forget you're being photographed. This lets me create those great unposed moments when you look and feel your best. I promise that by the end of your photography session you'll be saying,"that was so much fun!".
You've checked out my portfolio and blog and you love what I do, whoohoo! The next step is to fill out my contact form. Expect a response from me ASAP! Once I've received your email, we'll setup a time to chat in person, over the phone or Facetime. I want you to meet the person behind the camera and I want to meet you! Let's make sure we both feel those warm fuzzy feelings together!
You love me, I love you - let's do this thaaang! Once you let me know you'd like to book, I'll send you all the wonderful booking information. You'll fill in your deets, sign the contract, and make your retainer.
If you've opted for an engagement session, we will start planning it as soon as your deposit is made! We will secure a date and location and I will send you tips for outfit selection and other helpful info to help you prepare!
About a month before your big day, we will sit down and create a photography timeline and family photo list. This helps everything run smoothly day-of and ensures you're getting the most out of my time!
I'm a strong believer that if you're not early, you're late. Expect to see me at least 30 minutes before my scheduled start time on your wedding day. Once I'm there, good luck getting rid of me! We are going to laugh and cry together - we'll hug, we'll dance - you know everything new best friends do!
I'll post a preview for you on your preferred social media site within 48 hours of your wedding. You'll receive your full gallery within 2 - 4 weeks after your wedding. I edit everything in-house and I'm quick like Grease Lightning!
I hope our new found friendship doesn't end once you get your photos! Let's meet up for a beer and catch up on life!
I will travel almost anywhere in Colorado free of charge. If you're venue location is more than 1.5 hours away from Denver, I do require a small travel fee.
I have a wide network of excellent photographers that I use as second photographers. The people I choose are successful wedding photographers in their own right and have styles that compliment mine.
I begin the process of editing your photos by selecting the best photos that represent your day. I'll keep in all the lovely candid moments, every emotion, and each detail that happened throughout your day to completely tell your story. You'll receive a focused gallery full of images that have been enhanced with beautiful colors and dramatic black and whites.
You can expect 50 - 100 images per hour. Image amounts depend on the size of your bridal party, family photo combinations and the number of hours I spend with you on your wedding day. Engagement sessions receive roughly 100 edited images
Yes! I carry liability insurance accepted by all major parks and venues.
Do I have to choose?? But if I had to pick one... I love a classic supreme pizza with all the toppings!
"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!"

Soleil did an AMAZING job with both our engagement photos and our wedding! We are SO thrilled with how the pictures turned out and couldn't be happier that we decided to hire Soleil! She was communicative and professional throughout the entire process and so easy and fun to work with. I'll be cherishing these photos forever!
