Makenna Colon Wedding Photographer in Denver, CO

How long have you been a photographer? 

I have been a professional photographer for 5 years, but I have been taking photos since high school.

Why did you decide to become a photographer?

I have always loved photography and would have a million instant film cameras filled in my room. For our family photos, I would be in charge of bringing the tripod and setting up the camera. It’s always been something I gravitate towards, which is why being a full time photographer feels amazing!

What’s your favorite memory from an event that you’ve worked?

Honestly, there are soooooo many memories. Some are sweet and some are fun, but I guess the most unique one is that the groom brought a samurai sword to the dance floor and then sliced the top of a bottle of champagne with it! One of the best photos!

How would you describe your photography style?

I like to take photos that show the emotion and and also show the beauty. I like to be a fly on the wall during times when people are making memories and get the candid shots. Sometimes I do like to get the timeless shots of the couple when they are together and give them prompts to do as I capture them. I have an artistic/editorial view as well to my detail shots

What venue has been your favorite to shoot at?

Honestly, I can’t pick a favorite venue but I tend to gravitate towards to loft style venues with a beautiful view. I love the outdoor/minimalist look.

List one fun fact not many people know about you!

I love animals! My husband and I have 2 dogs, 1 cat, 1 chameleon, 3 leopard geckos and 7 ball pythons. My husband and I want to have a farm and zoo eventually!
