The Experience!
  • “I was referred to Blonde Cow by a friend. We were both getting senior pictures taken; In fact, many students from my school went to blonde cow. I still felt my experience was very personalized, and that they took the time to know who I was and what I wanted out of this experience. Going in, I had expressed my concerns with the pictures because I have braces so I was a little uncomfortable with my smile. Shortly within the photoshoot, I was comfortable and smiling with teeth.”

  • “Kollene is amazing! As soon as we first started corresponding I felt comfortable. She showed up at our house and it was like we had been friends for years. The professionalism and comfort she brings to each shoot is truly amazing. I still remember sitting in their beautiful studio watching the amazing slide show they put together of our newborn session and tearing up because of how beautiful each and every image was. The attention to detail that both Kollene and Mattias put into their work is remarkable. We are expecting our 2nd child in a few weeks and cannot wait for Kollene to capture its first year.  Kollene and Mattais are a great team and we are truly grateful to have them document such a special time in our lives.”

  • “Kollene and Mattias are amazing! They photographed my engagement session and my wedding. Working with them is so much fun, and I never felt awkward about having my pictures taken. They make the whole process a blast!”

    Molly & Sky
  • “My daughter had her senior photos done by Blonde Cow Photography. The entire experience was amazing! We had such a great time on the shoot. Kollene is so sweet and laid-back, it was as if we were with a good friend. Her husband Mattias helped us with the order and patiently showed us the most amazing photographs. His eye for color and detail complement his wife’s incredible talent. The most difficult part was deciding which of the beautiful photos to purchase. The whole experience was wonderful! The photos are perfect and will be cherished for a lifetime.”

    The Westheimer’s
  • “Blonde Cow was absolutely incredible! They were laid back, easy to work with, and eager to please! They were never in the way on the wedding day and came out with amazing photos. They’re also very responsible and back up your photos several times throughout the night and in several different places so that the photos are secure and you don’t have to worry about them accidentally deleting or losing them! They’re the best and think ahead on everything. They went above and beyond my expectations. I would highly recommend them to anyone.”

    Lauren & Jordon
  • “Kollene and Mattias have been photographing my family for 4 years now. It started with my first pregnancy maternity shoot, followed up by a newborn shoot, then 1 year… times that by 2 more children… and we are up to 7 photo shoots to date and another one planned in a year or two! They are so much more than just photographers! I’m blessed to call them friends. They have been a part of my family from the beginning and I feel very much a part of theirs. They are beyond generous and giving. You will always end up with the perfect picture(s). I have to say they are so easy to get along with, work with and talk to. You feel so at ease taking pictures – no stress. And trust me taking family pictures with kids under 5 is no easy task! As long as they are still taking pictures – they will be our only photographer – that I can promise you!”

    The Souza’s
  • “Kollene is a creative genius who knows how to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera.  She has the magical ability to rope in a busy toddler and inspire them to smile.  Mattias brings it all to life.  He gets a feel for your style and his ideas and suggestions are amazing.  Their collective work translates to such stunning art.  We can’t feel luckier to have found them to capture our family’s milestones and moments.”

    Lauren
  • “I had decided to skip the senior photos until I saw Kollene’s work.  I knew she could capture the spirit of my son in a way that was both timely and creative. Kollene and Mattias were efficient, relaxed, creative and just so fun to work with!”

    Lee Ann
  • “We are a blended family of 5 who have been together for years. We had no desire to have a big ceremony and decided to surprise our kids with our wedding. They were told we were going to the beach for a family photo shoot. Kollene was AMAZING. I knew the pictures would be stunning because I had studied her work and carefully chose her but she is such an amazing soul. She was so kind and elegant in ways I can’t describe. She felt like a member of the family. Her work is clearly her passion and I can’t thank Blonde Cow Photography enough for making this one of the happiest days of our lives!”
