To me, it's not just about the gorgeous images. It's about serving my couples with all my heart and celebrating along side them during this joyful momentous day in their life. When it comes to wedding photography, I believe it is one of the most important investments for your big day. At the end of the day when the dance floor has cleared, the happy tears have dried, and the wedding dress is hung, all you have left are your memories and your images. However, hiring a wedding photographer isn’t just about finding someone who takes amazing photos. When you hire me, you get an encourager, cheerleader, and best of all, you get a friend who you feel like you’ve known forever! I specialize in capturing both the big moments and the small moments, and take any stress or burden off of you during your big day, so that you can enjoy it to the fullest.

your Wedding Photography deserves to be more than pretty photos.

The Experience

from clients

Corey photographed my wedding day and other portions of our wedding journey absolutely perfectly! The professionalism, friendliness, and kindness he has is out of this world. Corey is an expert and his photography is truly timeless.

Cannot recommend Corey enough!!! He listened to every desire, got to know my family members, and kept our large bridal party in line! He turned around all the pictures so quickly, and every one of them captured the day perfectly. He is professional and kind, and so worth every penny we spent (my mom wanted to tip him more because she loved him so much hehe). Book him before he books up!

From the moment you engage with Corey you feel like you have known him forever, and are instantly comfortable as if you were already friends. We feel so lucky and honored to have met Corey, and to have had him as our photographer. We are so in love with all of our photos! Knowing that Corey was behind the camera brought us so much ease as we knew that they would turn out so amazing.

I can not recommend Corey enough. I was so blind throughout the process of planning a wedding, and when I met Corey, we just clicked! He has such a kind and caring soul and is equally professional and talented. After changing the venue at the last minute due to COVID, he agreed to drive to another state to photograph my wedding. The photos he took captured the love of that day, and I still look at them daily. Corey has become a friend of mine, my family, and my friends. Cannot say it enough: thank you Corey!

Corey is an absolute joy to work with and truly skilled at his craft. We were lucky enough to have him as our photographer. It was a DOWNPOUR when we arrived for my bridals and I was a mess. Corey kept me calm and the sun came out, the photos are everything I ever dreamed of! Our wedding photos are simply STUNNING! He made us comfortable, managed our chaotic wedding party and us, and captured absolutely magical moments. He is a true professional and such a joy to be around.

There are not enough kind words. Kind, talented, detailed, fun, quality, thoughtful. Corey made our mini-moon photoshoot so memorable. We started with a phone call to make sure we were a good fit and at the end I walked away feeling like I made new & extremely talented friend! If you are looking for a photographer that wants to invest in you, don’t think twice!

Planning a wedding during the covid pandemic made me very anxious, but every time I spoke or emailed Corey he had such an infectious enthusiasm about everything, it made me feel so much better despite the stress. He was so professional and so friendly. On the day of our wedding, he gave clear direction and made us feel so comfortable. The photos turned out STUNNING. He does amazing work! Hire him!!!
