Colling Photography Gold Canyon, AZ

About Us

Hello – and welcome to our site. We are Jeff and Rena Colling, an internationally award winning husband and wife photography team. Yes, there are many husband and wife photography teams, but we are unique. We have been making hundreds of clients extremely happy with reliable service, high quality and expanding creativity for years. Every year we strive to stay ahead of the latest trends to give our clients the best images possible – being leaders in the industry instead of becoming complacent and predictable. We believe in growing as photographers and feel that entering competitions helps us to achieve this. On the local level, we both have individually won the Phoenix Professional “Wedding Photographer of the Year” award. And now, with Rena just having received the Arizona Professional Photographer’s Association “Wedding Photographer of the Year” award, we both can claim this even higher state accomplishment. On the international level, we both have been awarded the Wedding and Portrait Photographer International Accolade of Photographic Mastery. At this point in time no other husband and wife team in Arizona has accomplished this. With us you will have two acclaimed photographers shooting your wedding!

Below is a list of frequently asked questions that we hope you will find helpful.
