I spent most of my childhood covered in mud, clutching action figures and running around in the woods. I loved to draw (monsters mostly) and to build things out of scrap wood or cardboard boxes. I had an extensive collection of bottle caps and I always stuck my belly out when I posed for pictures.
These days, when I am out creating pictures, I think back to that carefree, imaginative little kid. I try to keep things comfortable with clients, to envision the story behind every photo and to not stress about getting a little dirty in the process.
In my spare time, you will find me relaxing with my family or off playing in the woods.

SERVICES & EQUIPMENT
I have over 10 years of professional photography experience and offer a variety of services, including weddings and events, family, lifestyle, commercial and much more. I work alone or with assistants and second shooters as needed. My home base is Colorado, but I will travel wherever photography is needed - the more adventurous the location, the better!
I shoot with a Canon 5D Mark III full-frame DSLR and a variety of L-Series Canon lenses and flashes.
Unlimited, non-exclusive use rights are granted for all photography services.
My photography tends toward a candid, documentary style. I search for those honest, everyday moments that occur when people forget about the camera and naturally connect. Primarily, I see myself as a storyteller - building narrative one image at a time.
I process all of my photos in Adobe Camera Raw and Adobe Photoshop and apply a range of subtle finishes. I might choose a cleaner and brighter look for one project, while applying a more raw look to another. How those photos are processed depends on both the specific requests of my clients and what I feel best suits each image.
“Travis was exceptional! He was enjoyable to work with from initial planning to final delivery and the photos are amazing! We couldn’t have been happier!”
“Travis took our engagement photos. Before scheduling our shoot, he took the time to get to know us as a couple. He soon realized, we too were creative people. He encouraged us to think of a creative location that capture our personality. He was on time, very comfortable to work with, and did a phenomenal job. We couldn’t be more happier with our colorful creative photos! 3 Thumbs Up!”
“I have really admired Travis’ work from previous photography shows. I contacted him to shoot some pics to promote my yoga practice. Having much faith in him as a person as well as his outstanding work, I was not the least bit underwhelmed. He is a true professional with a gift for the artistic eye. Every shot he took was artistically thought through and showcased the subject and his talents.”
“Such a privilege to have Travis shoot the first precious moments with our baby! The relaxed approach was perfect. Timeless work by an exceptional talent. We’ll be scheduling our next photo shoot very soon.”
“Working with Travis was a natural and inviting experience for us – our twin babies were just 3 weeks old and we wanted to capture their newborn glory. His observant eye, coupled with a gentleness to us all, reflects clearly in the photos he shot. There’s a special connection that surfaces in his photos between the subject and the camera, and we were awed by the expression that came forth in his work. We look forward to working with him again!”
“Travis is our go-to photographer. We love his work and photo sessions with him are so easy and natural. He is friendly, laid-back and has a great eye for detail. Even with our two kiddos, he always manages to get great shots of our whole family. Highly recommend!”
“Travis is a father himself, so he understands how to catch children being themselves. He has the ability to capture the spontaneous moments between the moments. We have had him shooting our family annually and the photos end up blowing us away every time. We all always enjoy catching up with him.”
“We could not have been happier both working with Travis for our wedding. As two people who generally shy away from the camera, we felt at ease having Travis photograph us and knew that his quick and painless style would yield amazing results. As a good friend, we were sad that he couldn't just be a guest at our wedding, but his sacrifice was definitely our gain. We didn't want to spend our wedding day away from our friends and family taking pictures, but still wanted great photos. Because of Travis, we achieved both. We were able to fully experience our wedding day while he stealthily snapped spectacular framers. We have beautiful photos where the smiles on our faces are genuine, and the moments are candid, natural, never posed. These pictures still pull on our heartstrings every time we look at them.”
"For over the past year Travis Percival has done all our commercial photography. As a company that sells a high-end visual product the photos of our work are very important. Travis has been able to accurately capture not just the images of our work, but the mood and feeling our projects convey. His ability to approach each project with a creative lens has allowed us as a company to highlight our work in all our marketing materials. We will continue to partner with Travis for years to come as he is a true asset to our business. I would highly recommend him."
"Travis was awesome to work with and he is somehow able to be a true professional while feeling like an old friend. He went above and beyond for our wedding and created beautiful photos. My husband and I were not very natural in front of the camera but Travis made us feel comfortable and was able to get original and authentic shots. His innate ability to capture personalities and emotions through his lens shined through in the photos and reflected the joy and love at our wedding. We hope to be able to work with him again!"
