Barb Colombo, MFA:

A Boulder & Denver Photographer
With Artistic Spirit

I delight in delivering professional, inspired photography with an abundance of energy and creativity for your weddings, portraits, and corporate events. I also provide intimate botanical and nature photography to grace the walls of your home and office. This work and inspiration comes from my heart and is my true passion. It is my honor and privilege to photograph you and your families and to witness and capture the important moments and events in your lives.
My clients benefit from my comforting and relaxed approach and I deliver amazing photos that you’ll be proud to share with your friends and family. It is my great joy to preserve your memories through the art of photography.

Photo Galleries


I simply LOVE photographing weddings and welcome the opportunity to create beautiful, memorable images with you on this most amazing day in your lives. With 20 years of experience, I bring the technical skill and human connection essential for an authentic and fun photographic experience.


I  believe in genuine human connection and taking the time to get to know you as we create your professional headshot & lifestyle portraits. I work both in my studio as well as outdoor locations around Boulder. This ensures your portraits are natural, yet professional and allows for diversity in your images all in the same location.

Fine Art

My greatest intention is to show up, connect, and feel with a true, authentic heart. The world around me often meets me there. Whether it’s plants, animals or people, the desire to feel the presence of the other overrides all other distractions to truly see the true essence of that which comes before my lens.

  • "I wanted to get in touch to say thanks again!  I was always impressed with the quality of the pictures but having the book just reinforces what a great job you did. Aside from the pictures themselves, the book is fantastic.  I have shared it with some friends/co-workers and everyone has commented on what a great job the photographer did…so kudos to you! Again, thanks for a great job both with the book and putting everyone at ease on the day itself."
