Hi! I’m Phillip, the owner of Colling Films. I am just a goofy dude from Chicago who by God’s grace, found a passion for filmmaking. After the shortest professional baseball career in history (28 days) and being a high school biology teacher for 6 years, I filmed my first wedding. After that, I completely fell in love with the emotional impact I could make in someone else’s life through story-telling. I haven’t looked back since. I genuinely love what I do, and my family and I are so incredibly blessed to be a part of your lives!
Meet the Colling Family...
I met my wife, Caitlin, while playing collegiate baseball and softball at Olivet Nazarene University.
We have been married almost 8 years and got married in Illinois in December.
We have 2 boys and 1 girl: 5 year old McCovey, 3 year old Declan, and our sweet Selah Clare is 1 year old.
I (Phil) do all the shooting and editing, but my wife is a fashion stylist so she always helps me look over every film to make sure everyone at every angle is looking their best! :)
