about us Hey there, We are Mitch and Savanna and we make up Colagrossi and Co! A little about us to get acquainted: We love cats, travel, impressionist painters, 19th century literature, martinis, weird art films, horror movies wine, hip hop, heavy metal, guitars, and coffee, but most of all, love. I’m a fan of the strange and unconventional, and I believe that is what makes life so beautiful. Your wedding, elopement, engagement, whatever it may be, means way more to us than just a paycheck. One thing that comes with being in this industry for over a decade is that it’s about so much more than just travel, and seeing cool places. After all this time, We've learned what this thing is truly about — it’s about you. It’s about giving you a memoir of the most special day of your lives that you can hold on to, to savor in the grayer, not-so-great moments of marriage that inevitably take place, and that can bring you back into harmony with each other where you belong. We want you to look at the photos and videos of your day and remember the smell of your bouquet, how the light looked in your partners eyes as they said their vows, the hug your dad gave you after walking you down the aisle, the taste of your cake as you smashed it into each other’s faces (the only real way to eat your wedding cake!), and the song that played during your first dance. It’s about providing you a timeless keepsake that you can show to your children (if that’s your thing), and then their children, and maybe even further down the line. The people We've shot over all this time have become my family. They’re the people we have over for dinner and talk about horror movies with all night long, or the people we stay out singing (it might or might not be closer to shouting) karaoke with until 1am on a Friday night. These people are some of our closest, most treasured friends, and it’s my hope that we get to do that too. This is what it’s really about for us, and it’s what we hope we can do with you. Everything else just sort of falls to the wayside.
our approach / working with us We've developed a darker moodier tone to our images. Our photographic and cinematographic approach is getting reliant on getting to know you as a couple and as people so we can get those little in-between moments that we find so special.
why we love weddings Being entrusted with a couple's memories of their special day is such a humbling thing. The images and films we create could possibly be shared with someone's great grandchildren. Making sure we capture moments that give generations in the future an insight into what your love was like is just so inspiring to us. We love love, and we love weddings.
our travel policy We do charge for travel but only to cover flights and hotel if necessary. We've shot weddings all over the world and we're happy to go wherever you are willing to take us!
