About Us

We are primarily wedding photographers in Syracuse NY, but we specialize in all forms of portraiture including (but of course not limited to) family portraits, newborn photography, and senior portrait photography. We would love to work with you and have fun! We travel to all of Upstate New York including the Finger Lakes, Adirondacks, and Thousand Islands, but we also love to travel and would be happy to be your destination wedding photographer!

Colleen & Greg are not your typical husband and wife photography
team. Greg got his start in photography at age 14 with an interest in
landscape photography. Colleen developed an interest in photography by
taking children's portraits.

 

They met each other while getting their photography degrees in
college. After graduating, they opened Solas Studios in 2010. Inspired
by their Irish heritage, "Solas" is the Irish-Gaelic word which means
"light" - and photography is all about light! Their favorite colors are
coincidentally orange and green, so it's a perfect fit!

 

For your wedding they are the perfect team - Greg, with his
experience as a talented landscape photographer brings his vision to
your wedding to capture scenic and breathtaking photos showing the
beauty of your surroundings. With that experience, he also uses his
skills with a wide-angle lens to capture all of the excitement on the
dance floor. Colleen has a knack for capturing the beauty and elegance
of the bride on her wedding day, capturing all the important details,
and with her background in children's portraiture she is adept at
capturing all of the precious moments that will make your heart melt.

 

Our director is our beloved feline friend, Smeagól. While he does not
accompany us on the job, he does play an active roll in the business,
supervising and making sure that we are working up to his standards!

"When it's your special day, you want the best, and Colleen and Greg are the best! "

We had a remarkably wonderful experience working with Solas Studios, Colleen and Greg! Throughout the process, both were professional, flexible, and made our overall experience VERY easy. That says a lot because we were based on the west coast while planning our wedding and Solas Studios home base is on the east coast. From the start, we could tell that Colleen and Greg were the team we wanted to capture our wedding day. Colleen went above and beyond from start to finish. Through phone calls and emails, we were able to plan the photographic vision of our wedding day with Colleen. She was very prompt at responding and creating time to speak to us directly. She even helped us lay out a timeline for the wedding, which was a tremendous help as she has so much experience and was able to give us several perspectives and ideas for a day of timeline.

 

The day of the wedding, they were at the site well in advance of their intended arrival and were able to organize our day in a way that was smooth and painless for us. We both have large families which lead to challenges getting them in the same place at the same time, but Collen and Greg were able to manage and photograph all that were both scheduled and spontaneous. They were even able to wrangle the ENTIRE family and pull off a photo that we will cherish forever.

 

Having both Colleen and Greg created a streamlined day because Greg was able to capture the groom while Colleen worked with the bride both during preparations and during the first look. Colleen and Greg balance each other well, both behind the lens and in person. They have their unique eye and will capture the same moment in complementary but separate ways. In person, they work just as well. While shooting the family portraits, Greg was managing the lights and camera while Colleen was organizing the next shot and grabbing the attention of the youngsters all while remaining completely relaxed and happy.

 

Initially, we were going to forgo an album, but after seeing the spectacular photo's, we chose to proceed with an album that will permanently remind us of our special day. Colleen was efficient and supportive narrowing down and arranging our images in the collection. Colleen and Greg's communication was instrumental both before, during, and after the event, which gave us great peace of mind. We are several months out from our wedding, and four different families have used one of their images as holiday cards.

 

Colleen and Greg not only work well individually but are also terrific as a team. We were more than satisfied with Solas Studios and will use them again for future special events in the North East. We cannot recommend them highly enough. When it's your special day, you want the best, and Colleen and Greg are the best!
