Photographer Central Profile

Photography by Brenda K. Colwell is my passion, my lifestyle and my creative outlet. It is my way to capture beautiful moments with your family. Everywhere I look there is a beautiful photo waiting, whether it is a fleeting expression or a twinkle in the eye. It is my job to create an atmosphere where you to feel and look natural.

My work can be found in every publication in Telluride.  I invite you to accompany me to places in Telluride's majestic landscape that will take your breath away (barns, fields, waterfalls and mountains).  Or, spend time with me in the only professional portrait studio in the area (great for children, family, babies and professional head shots.

Let's meet for your family portrait session, wedding or a business portrait, I will provide you with beautiful imagery, framing, prints, and retouch services. Session fees start at $425 for outdoor sessions, and just $300 for studio sessions.   We start with an initial consultation and end with something beautiful for your home.
