A Message From Colt

At Colt Melrose Photography, we know you are the kind of person who values family, success in life and career, and wants to be remembered for more than just your career. In order to live that way, you need to provide exceptional experiences for your family, children, and grandchildren. 

It is my great joy to uncover that spark of confidence within each and every one of my clients. Capturing you and your loved ones at your best is just the start. The final image presentation will serve as your daily reminder that YES, you are loved. You are incredible. You have worth and beauty.

The problem is that those iPhone pictures from vacation don’t ever make it to the wall, and you have forgotten what your kids even looked like as they passed through major life milestones. While it’s nice that we always have a camera with us, those digital images don’t help you to show value to those you love and care about most. And as such, our children are growing up without a deep sense of belonging. We believe that families deserve to be strong, and kids, especially young ladies, deserve to feel confident in who they are–right now. We understand what it’s like to wonder if you are loved by your family, and to feel less valuable that you really are. That’s why we go to great lengths to create an experience that celebrates your family, instill confidence in you and your children, especially women of all ages. Schedule an appointment today, so you can show your family just how valuable they are to you.

For a role this important, only the finest print products will do. We’ll help you design luxurious handcrafted Albums, elegant Display Boxes, and timeless Matted Prints. Our signature Premium Wall Portrait and Heirloom Fine Art Collections are the perfect addition to your living room wall. At Colt Melrose Photography, we aren’t finished until the last portrait is installed.

I can’t wait to help you decorate your home with love. Your unforgettable Custom Portrait Experience is just a heartbeat away!

“People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but they will never forget the way you made them feel.”

Colt is an amazing photographer, and most importantly, an amazing person. The experience was made magical by his attention to the people involved. The experience was first class. The selection and ordering process was super easy and he delivered photos that everyone has gushed over. I 1000% recommend him!
Gary C.
My family and I have used Colt for years. His photography fills our house, from large canvas prints to photos in almost every room. He’s taken photos for our pregnancy announcements, family photos, Christmas cards, our girl’s 1st birthday, and even my headshots.
Josh B.
Colt took the time to get to know my son personally, and then created fun and extremely creative photos of him. He truly captured the essence of who my son is. I chose many more than I thought I would. I even had Colt design and print graduation announcements . I fully intend to do the same for my younger son. This was an awesome experience!

Get To Know Colt

For almost a decade, Colt had enjoyed capturing images that celebrate and preserve his clients. From portraits of families, one or multiple generations; celebrating milestones like high school or college seniors, milestone anniversaries, new beginnings and lasting relationships; or keeping your personality at the front of your professional brand through quality headshots, Colt strives to capture the uniqueness of every season.

Colt lives by the mantra of his fellow Oklahoman, Will Rogers, in that he’s never met a person he didn’t like. As a photographer, Colt is approachable and relatable. His top priority is your satisfaction, and he offers nothing less. He’s a father of three beautiful girls (and a son on the way!) who are often called in to model for a practice session, and he’s been married to his incredible wife Lindy since 2008. They have resided in the Katy, TX area since 2011.

Every Experience With Colt Will Include

Complimentary Discovery Call

Our Complimentary Discovery Call will allow us get to know you, and go over our process as we answer any questions you might have.

In-Depth Style Consultation

Our Style Consultation will help bring focus to your vision and finalize all the details. We will build the wardrobe together, select the perfect location, and explore how your portraits will be displayed, all from the comfort of your own home.

This also gives your family the opportunity to meet me, so I’m not a stranger when you arrive for your session! We find this makes for much better portraits.

Whether you like a magazine style studio look or a more natural or urban setting, we love creating portraits that are unique to you. Have a destination in mind for your photoshoot? Let’s go. If we can shoot there, we’ll be there.

Frequently Asked Questions

My family and I have lived in the Katy, TX area since 2011. We have two studio locations. One just off the north loop at 610 & I-45. The other at our home in beautiful Simonton, TX. We also offer complete location flexibility and will travel for your photography session.

We typically schedule your in-home ordering appointment just a few days after your session. We find this works better for families and seniors. However, with proper planning/scheduling, we can review images immediately after an in-studio session.

Absolutely! Your portraits should highlight your favorite qualities about yourself. We apply standard retouching to all purchased images. We want you to look like the very best version of you!

As a father of young children, I am used to a little bit of chaos all the time. Our process is designed to make everyone in your family happy and comfortable, even dad. We never want anyone to feel rushed during your session, and we want you to walk away feeling cared for and known.

We can! Our extended package allows us to shoot in up to 4 locations. This is perfect for personal branding, seniors, or simply having that “Model for a Day” experience.

Our session fee varies depending on your needs. On your discovery call, we can understand which session type is going to serve you best. Our clients typically invest between $500 to $10,000 or more, depending on taste and budget. A luxury investment demands a luxury experience, and with Colt Melrose Photography, that’s exactly what you get.

A phone call allows us to understand your needs best, so we can provide you with just the right experience. So let’s talk! You can schedule a phone consultation at no cost here.
