If Destany + Mitch of The Colagrossis had it their way, they would be hopping on a plane every weekend to capture amazing weddings across the globe. Their dreams are really not too different from their reality, and calling themselves full-time destination wedding photographers has allowed them to travel to some pretty epic places to photograph the love of some really incredible couples.
Destany tells us, To us, love is synonymous with motion. Love is a moving, beating, breathing thing that only stops when your heart does. Travel is the perfect metaphor for marriage. When we first realized we were in love, we found a spot on the map we’d never been to and just took off. That was the beginning of our story and the beginning of an epic wanderlust that we haven’t been able to silence.
Destany + Mitch dream of capturing weddings everywhere; from desolate deserts to tiny, little fishing towns. Knowing that those one-of-a-kind venues may be rare, but do exist, they are hoping to connect with some of you today who are planning your wedding in an amazing + unique location. (Because, ya know, GWS couples just know what’s up when it comes to all things beautiful, personal, and out-of-the-box!)
They tell us, Our souls are ignited by creativity, edginess, unconventional love stories, intimacy, trust, and fearlessness. We are non-conformists. We occasionally have crazy ideas, we make inappropriate jokes, and immediately treat you like old friends inviting you into our hearts. We understand what sparks that happy-dance-inducing “Hell-yes!”-emotion when the images represent the love we see in front of us. Capturing images is a partnership; it takes collaboration and a connection to make something truly beautiful.
We prefer hand-crafted to factory made. We use the natural, God-given elements of nature and light around us to expound on the beauty that is already present. We are constantly reading expressions, and anticipating the next laugh. We notice the minute and the uncomplicated; the hands that hold on tightly, the breath before the kiss. We linger with our couples, valuing the time from initial meeting to final goodbye.
Nevertheless, we are not a one-size-fits-all solution. We are not afraid of getting a little dirty, a little crazy, and spending the time it takes to craft the true representation of you at this one moment in time. If you are hesitant to trust us and our vision, and are opposed to taking an adventure, or If the concept of your wedding involves extravagant dresses and Pinterest-perfect details, we might not be the right fit for you. This is going to be the story you leave behind for your loved ones. Let’s make it a good one.
