The Experience!

  • “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.”

  • “Working with Kollene & Mattias was so enjoyable. We couldn’t be happier with the service and the final product we received from them. Our pictures are so beautiful. We look forward to working with them in the future for all of our photography needs.”

  • “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.”

  • “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.”

  • “Thank you Kollene and Blonde Cow Photography for capturing such beautiful moments during our shoot! You made it so easy to relax and to enjoy taking such fun pictures! We had an amazing experience full of a lot of laughs and smiles, including some pretty crazy ones with our dog Tucker! Kollene, you were the perfect person to have shared such a memorable time in our lives with last week. Your love for taking pictures and connecting with the people in your photos is evident through your stunning work. You gave us a chance to slow down and reminder that the most important things in life are the ones we love. We know we will look back on these pictures for years to come with incredible memories of the day!”

  • “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!”

  • “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.”

  • “It was mid-January, and the thought of taking senior pictures didn’t even occur to me until I saw the beautiful pictures my fellow classmates had taken with Blonde Cow Photography. Kollene and Mattias were gracious enough to squeeze me in despite their tight schedules and still managed to offer me an incredibly customized and comfortable experience. I wanted my senior pictures to have a sort of colonial feel to remind me of my hometown. Having heard my ideas during our first consultation, Kollene immediately came up with several venues for us to shoot. Her attention to details as well as professional eye for aesthetics made the final product beyond everything that I could have imagined it to be. Needless to say, I was absolutely satisfied. Mattias followed up with my printing orders, and he was very helpful in suggesting what products and packages would best suit my needs. To any one who seeks a personalized, memorable, and aesthetic photo session, Blonde Cow is your choice”

  • “Kollene and Mattias are not only talented, intelligent, people (with good taste, I might add), they are also genuine and caring, and will do anything to make your experience wonderful. Our family photos are BEAUTIFUL!!! We will cherish these photos in years to come even more, I’m sure. Everything was handled in a super organized, professional manner from A to Z. Thank you Blonde Cow!”

  • “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!”

  • “We have had a wonderful experience with Kollene and Mattias. We purchased the maternity to 1 year old photo package, and really got to know them with our 4 sessions. They are professional and stress free. What makes them exceptional is that they truly care about the kids, and trouble shoot to make even my diva toddler happy. Kollene invited my toddler on a special ice cream date before our recent photo shoot. Then they were best friends, and the photo shoot was perfect. I have a 3 year old and a 1 year old. I’m pretty sure Kollene deserves a Nobel peace prize. We couldn’t be happier, and our pictures are priceless.”

    Jean Ly
  • “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!”
