    I'm an agent with a busy Real estate office and Colby is a joy to work with and the pictures he takes of our properties are always perfect and returned in a timely manner. Colby is both professional and a delight to work with! His drone photos are first rate as well! Highly recommended!

    Colby is a pleasure to work with. He is great for all types of projects and he does not gouge you with his pricing. I have used other photographers in the past and their pricing strategy is to get as much money out of you as possible. They take a bunch of pics and you get nickled and dimed.

    Colby does phenomenal work and is flexible to your wants and needs. He will insure you are happy with the transaction. I have had Colby take pictures of my kids on multiple occasions and I have used him on some technical videos for my business. I highly recommend him and his work.

    Colby made us a 30 second promo video for our business, and we couldn't be more pleased with the way it turned out... The video was spot on for our target market, and actually landed us a booking within 24hrs of sharing. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for videography work done.

    Our co-workers had introduced us to Colby during one of our corporate celebration events. He made a few pictures of us and we felt in love with those pictures. Those pictures were so natural and "breath taking away" that we arrange whole session with him right at the same event. Somehow, he understood our "pressures of the day" and captured everything we wanted to express it in our photos! Colby is truly a one of a kind photographer which you will quickly find out once you spend some time looking at his website, Facebook page etc. LOOK NO FURTHER! We are strongly recommending Colby as your photographer! Roman and Tatiana

    I am a local Realtor that always gets professional photos and a still shot tour for all of my listings. I had never used Colby before, but another photographer that I have used was on vacation. His photos came out AMAZING! It was a small house that he made look spacious and inviting. He even put it to music for no extra charge, which is exactly what I want to get people in to see my homes, so they will sell quickly for the most $. I would definitely recommend him and use him again for my listing photos.

    Colby did such a good job for our wedding photos!!

    My favorite part of the service was how enthusiastic he is about his work! I could tell he really enjoys photography and he does a great job!

    I was asked beforehand a list of shots we wanted to get for the wedding and he made sure I got them! (there was only one shot we missed, but that was our fault because the wedding had been running late all morning)

    The venue we had our reception at was rushing us the entire day (and I was already late as I mentioned before) they were also rude to our photographers. However, Colby took it like a champ and was very calm and respectful back to them. He and his 2nd shooter were also on a mission the entire time! They were all over the place and yet I barely noticed them (which is a good thing during your wedding right?) Because of this I was able to relax from the stress of wedding day hectics and be sure that we would at least have some really great photos. As I said before we were given a short amount of time to take couple shots since we were so rushed, but despite the time limit Colby was able capture it all very nicely!

    Thank you!!

    Colby was our videographer for our wedding in May 2017 at Miners Foundry in Nevada City, CA. We were very happy with the final product and it didn't cost us an arm and a leg. To be honest we were not planning to get a videographer at all to save the money, but then we saw the quality of work and the reasonable price and couldn't turn it down. So glad to get the referral from my photographer!!! I would recommend Colby any day as a wedding videographer.
    Thanks Colby!

    For the past 2 weeks I've been looking at our wedding photos, daydreaming. Having Colby as our photographer was the best decision we made. He truly has a gift, he captured all the perfect moments. When we look at our photos, we feel like we're reliving our wedding day over and over again! I can't wait to see our wedding video and I can't wait for our second day shoot! If you book him for your wedding or for any other event, you WILL NOT be disappointed. He is truly amazing! Not to mention, many packages and his prices are great!! Thank you so much Colby!!

    This is the most positive experience I've ever had with a professional photographer. It's difficult to find someone this professional, with this much value, also cares about your budget and you're needs. Not only are his rates unbeatable, but Colby performs at the highest levels of professionalism. His expertise is more than obvious. You will not find a better Photographer in the Sacramento area. If you're looking for the most professional service with a personal touch and caring experience, Colby Barrett Photography is the place to go. If you don't believe me, just call around and you will feel the difference.

    Colby did a phenomenal job shooting Kaitlyn's and Ryan's wedding. I never, ever would have expected for Colby to take some of the shots he took. He is creative and quick on his feet; moreover, one can just watch his mind working as he moves seamlessly from one shot or one location to another. Colby has a gift for putting everyone around him at ease, and before long, people don't even realize they are getting their pictures taken. The result is authentic, pure, and real photos that capture those most important moments beautifully. Kaitlyn and Ryan also took advantage of the engagement shoot that Colby offers as part of his package. He was open to traveling to the Bywater Lavender Farm where he took some incredible photos of not only Kaitlyn and Ryan but of them with their Great Pyrenees/Anatolian Shepard, Claddagh. Again, Colby's creative mind and unique talent combined to produce an exceptional array of photographs which captured the essence of Kaitlyn's and Ryan's love and devotion for each other. Colby will be our family photographer for many years to come.

    Had the absolute pleasure of working with Colby for my family photos. He understood my vision because I did not want typical family photos. We went on site and it was a lot of work but it was all worth it in the end. I love my photos . I would recommend C B photography to anyone who wants quality photos at a reasonable price.

    CB Photography & Videography is the place to go! Colby does an amazing job and has given me everything I wanted and more for my photos. I have gone to him twice now. He has taken photos for my daughter's first and second birthday as well as "3 generation" photos that I wanted for my mother. He has a variety of back drops and works with you on what you are looking for. He has his own props and you are welcome to bring your own, which is what I did. Colby is also great with kids and knows how to work with them to get the shots you're looking for. Thank you so much Colby for these great memories!! You're amazing!!

Thank you so much Colby!! You're amazing!!

    Colby and his team are absolutely amazing! From beginning to end, he was a pleasure to work with and an all around GREAT photographer. So talented. Our wedding photos turned out better than I could have imagined. I keep going back to them just to remember the highlights of the best day of my life. The gift box we received was so perfect. Thank you so much for everything CB photography! We will definitely be recommending your work to all our friends and family

    Colby was willing to help me capture my last days with my dog Ryker. The fabulous photos will always be a reminder of how much I adore him and thanks to Colby, he will not be soon forgotten. Colby's suggestions, knowledge, experience and patience with us was beyond measure. It is a challenge to work with both people and animals at the same time, and he really surpassed all expectations!

  • *****

    Great videography. We couldn't be more satisfied. He was on time, well dress and was on point. was able to capture every moment. Had great ideas of what to do, or how to pose. Colby's work was amazing. Even though it took some time to recieve our video, it was worth the wait. Everytime I look at the highlights I feel like I'm living in that moment again. He was able to capture everything we wanted and created an amazing video with excellent quality. I would highly recommend him to others. You will not regret getting him as your photographer or video man. Great personality and great work

    We already knew that Colby was a talented wedding photographer, but he amazed us with his ability to create memorable photographs of our seven-year old granddaughter. We wanted her photographed in her great grandmother's childhood dress from the 1920's. Colby chose an outdoor setting near the American River and photographed her in a variety of natural environments. He supplied an old-fashioned parasol, which not only added a bit a whimsy to the pictures, but of course charmed my granddaughter. What little girl doesn't like to twirl a paper parasol! Colby was able to capture the playfulness of this child's expressions and personality. From the beginning to the end of the photo shoot, she was engaged. Never letting a spontaneous opportunity slip by, Colby asked the owner of a beautiful horse that we happened upon, if he could take a picture of the magnificent animal and our granddaughter. The entire album of pictures are a testament to the creative genius of Colby. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone who wants to create a keepsake.

    Colby is AWESOME! We truly appreciate his great talent and skill as a videographer. Colby is very friendly and professional. He accommodated all of our requests and over delivered. His artistry really shines though his work. We cherish our amazing wedding videos! We highly recommend his services.

    Colby is fantastic! He not only was the second shooter for our wedding, but we also used his photo booth for the reception and we absolutely loved it! He even allowed us to use our own props for the booth. We bought an album for the photos and Colby printed each of them out and put them in the book for us so people could sign a message next to the picture. It's such a wonderful souvenir of our wedding and is so special to us. Colby was so easy to work with and I could not have asked for better people to have document our special day. Thank you, Colby!!

    Choosing Colby to photograph our daughter's wedding was a great decision! The quintessential professional, Colby was personable, well-dressed, and extremely skilled in capturing the essence of this special backyard event. Of the 525 shots taken, Colby created a balance between the posed and the spontaneous. The posed shots were not the traditional line-up of family members. Instead, there is a creative and often playful flair in these compositions. His photographs reflect the happiness of the bride and groom and the celebratory mood of the guests. No doubt many of our guests will be ordering photos of their own children caught in the act of having fun and revealing their personalities! His website allows you to download the photos or order prints. Ordering the prints was so affordable and conveninet that I chose that option. The biggest problem, of course, is deciding which prints to order!

    Thank you Colby for sharing your talent with our family. I can't tell you how much we were impressed by your work ethic and your creativity. Without direction, you knew which shots were important. We look forward to working with you in the future.

    My husband and I married in January of this year. When we envisioned our wedding our main goal was to capture every moment possible. I couldn't decide between hiring a photographer or a videographer, after meeting with Colby we decided the video would give us what we wanted. We were confident that he would create an amazing video that would last forever. I was extremely impressed by his professionalism and communication during the wedding. He was very personable, interacting and directing our guests with ease. When we first watched the video it brought me to tears. You could see how much time and effort he put into creating it, Colby went above and beyond for us. Every part of the video was amazing, it told the entire story of our wedding day and now we can relive the most amazing night of our lives everyday. He truly cares about his work and above all else, his clients. He spent so much time making sure everything came out perfect and he even gave us a beautiful keepsake box to store our video in. There is no one else that could do what he does, as well as he does it. If you want an amazing, well thought out photogrpaher, who takes true pride in their work then CB Photogrpahy is the place to go. We will be using him for any of our future photography or videography needs. Thank you Colby for giving us a lasting memory!

    Colby, thank you so much for being my FAVORITE second shooter at weddings. Not only do you know your stuff, but you're a hard worker who always goes the extra mile. I've never been disappointed with your photos but have been blow away by your talent. Thank you so much for your hard work. I truly appreciate it, working with you is always a pleasure. :)

    Colby is a qualified, patient, and easy going photographer. His eye for detail and use of techniques are flawless. I went through him in the past to get my daughters two year old photos done and they turned out amazing. Even though this was a bit of a challenge because she couldn't sit still longer than a couple minutes; he was more than qualified to handle the job. Colby captured her personality, as well as, added his own spin of creativity into the mix. My daughter is quickly approaching her fourth birthday and I look back on her photos from the photo shoot with Colby and it brings tears to my eyes. They are just that good! If you decide to have him as your photographer you will not be disappointed.

    Colby is amazing! I would never consider going to another photographer. He's done a few different shoots for my daughter and she adores him, makes both her and I feel very comfortable. He goes above and beyond on every photo he takes, and they always come out incredible! He has great ideas for poses as well as an eye for the best back drop to use. I could go on forever about how great he is! So worth it!

    This was my first photoshoot. I was a bit nervous on how it would go, but Colby's photo shop had a nice, calming atmosphere. He made it very easy for me and was exceedingly talented with getting the good shots. We came out with a lot of great shots. Colby made even the smallest adjustments to make sure that every photo was perfect. I can't recommend you use him enough.

    Where do I start and tell you about how wonderful and easy Colby is to work with. After interviewing a few videographers I feel we hired the best videographer ever! Colby was absolutely phenomenal!!! We couldn't be happier with the level of professionalism, creative excellence and innovation.

    He took the time to listen to the details I wanted to capture during the event. When we received the final DVD HD video with the highlights “WOW”, priceless.

    I can’t thank “Colby” enough for capturing one of the most important moments of our daughter “Sweet 16”.

    Had my baby's first birthday photos done and love them! Couldn't be happier! He's very nice and patient, she really liked him even when she got tired at the end! We did a cake smash photo even and it turned out great! He has tons of different backgrounds and the studio is comfortable! Thanks!!!

    Colby and his two assistants took pictures at my daughters wedding in Nov 2015. They did an amazing job! Was great to work with and was taking pictures till the last moment. We are so happy with his work and would definitely recommend him for any photography job you may have. Very affordable as well.

    Colby did my wedding photos in oct 2015. From the first moment of contact to the last he was amazing to work with! He had patience with my constantly changing plans, and really listened to what i wanted out of the day and what was most important. He shared ideas for photos back and forth for the time leading up to the wedding and was open to trying new ideas. All of my family and friends were so impressed by his professionalism and personality. I will definitely be hiring with Colby again and would highly recommend you do to!

    These guys just took head shots of our whole company over the space of a couple of hours, and results are great. They were able to easily adapt to a couple of last-second changes (including the location of their setup) without any problem. They did a great job of making everyone feel comfortable, including the people who don't like having their pictures taken. Highly recommended, and we'll keep using them in the future.

I loved his creative ideas and all hard work he put into making the photos come out great to show our special day.

    I worked with Colby for a large scale decent with 10,000 people, black lights, and a lot of powdered "color". His pictures were crisp and vibrant, very pleased with his work. So much I even booked him for an event a month later, while our event was still touring that area. No doubt top quality work from this guy. 5 stars
