Welcome and thanks for finding our site. Our photography strives to affirm the “good stuff” in life such as beauty, intelligence, loving relationships, competence, and fun.
Our studio is located on a few acres in San Lis Obispo, and our photography takes advantage not only it’s controlled space, but also beautiful local beaches, ranches, and vineyards. It would be our pleasure to fill your photography needs. How can we help ? 😀
"If my house was on fire, I would grab my most precious belongings (my Colleen Rosenthal photos) as I evacuated....Once you have had Colleen capture the beauty of your favorite people and special events, you will be hooked. She has photographed three bar/bat mitzvahs for our family and also done high school senior portraits of my son."Allison Alltucker
"Colleen is top notch. In all ways. She has an instant read on the energy of the event and takes it from there. She captures the best in her subjects in ways that are unexpectedly beautiful. We have been hiring her for the last 22 years and wouldn't think to look elsewhere."Jane-Jim Danks-Miller
"Colleen is an amazing photographer! She has such a calming presence about her. We knew we made the right choice when we had her take our engagement photos. We called her the day before wondering if we should cancel because one of us was sick."Sarah Brown
"Hi Colleen, I have just been going through the images again- I know how close you are to the truth of each of us in this family when the sheer BEAUTY of each one's soul is really evident in the photo. My tears bear witness to the reality of what you have been able to capture and reveal in an almost new way to our eyes- it is what we know in our hearts. The tenderness between Lisa and Amir his sensitivity and his strength...and the JOY in my daughter is the greatest gift that you could ever have given me :-) Thank you Colleen and may you be blessed for many years to bring this degree of joy to those with whom you work. What a gift you have and how APPREIATIVE I am that our paths have crossed. "Heather Mendel
