I am a Queens based photographer living in Astoria, NY. I specialize in documentary style photography.
My goal when photographing weddings is to capture the story of the day. I’m just as interested in showcasing the small subtle moments and quirky personal details, as I am with documenting the big showstoppers. I find beauty in the imperfection and chaos that is a real wedding day.
Thank you so much for checking out my work!

Our dream photographer
We knew from the beginning that we wanted a documentary-style photographer for our wedding, and the moment we came across Corey’s photographs online we both instantly knew that she would be our dream pick. Corey has a natural eye for beautifully composed yet organic and candid people photographs, which is exactly what we wanted to remember our wedding by, and all those candid moments between our guests that we weren’t able to see for ourselves. As we researched photographers we kept coming back to Corey, but assumed that she would be outside of our budget. Fortunately we did eventually reach out, and to our surprise she was not only available, but she also was willing to work with us to offer us a package that fell within our budget, so we immediately said yes.
From our first conversation, Corey was easygoing and took the time to listen to the aesthetic vision we had in mind for our DIY wedding, and helped us hammer out a photography timeline for the day-of through her extremely organized and helpful questionnaires, and through several phone meetings where she reassured us and gave her opinion on what would work best for our day-of timeline (whether or not to do a first look, when to take family portraits and couple portraits, etc.). She also offered a free portrait photography session a few months prior to the day, which was incredibly helpful. Despite us both being a bit camera shy, Corey exudes warmth and kindness and we quickly felt comfortable, forgetting that the camera was even there as if we were catching up with an old friend. The session really helped us feel at ease for our wedding day itself, like a kind of practice round, and the photographs that came out were BEAUTIFUL.
On the day itself, Corey worked some kind of magic and made all of our family members and guests––even the groom’s extremely camera shy father––feel instantly comfortable and at ease, getting natural reactions out of everyone during the family portrait session. Looking back at the photos she captured overall, it was clear that she was there for every moment throughout the evening, but during the night we were barely aware she was there. The photos she captured ran the whole range from detail shots, to portraits, to candids, and they were all incredible. We received a lot of positive feedback from our family about the photos, and it’s easy to see why: every facet of the wedding––romantic, wacky, touching––came through in her photos. It’s impossible to stress just how much we will value the images she took of our wedding, so the best thing we can say is that if you want candid photos of your wedding, book Corey and we promise that you will feel the same!

We had the pleasure of having Corey photograph our wedding (and engagement) photos in April! We were blown away by the work she did at a friend's wedding a couple of years back, and sought her services.
Her professionalism matched her sense of serenity in going with the flow of the afternoon and evening. We trusted Corey with capturing the 'moments' of the day that may have gone overlooked with all of the running around and seas of cameras at a wedding, and we were VERY pleasantly surprised to see that she had caught stuff that we- as the guests of honor- completely missed in the hubbub.
A nice mix of formal photos and candids, Corey uses bold colors and contrasts to make her photos pop and create a dynamic effect. We are thrilled to have had the opportunity to work with her.
Perhaps the most endearing part of this (other than the anticipation before our First Look and having just a relaxed conversation to ease the buildup of nerves) was that Corey was really prompt in getting back to us at every step, including sending along photos that we didn't see in our initial roll and following up with a REALLY sweet gesture of sending us some prints from the day. A true professional, through and through.

Five stars are not enough! Corey's photojournalist approach to wedding photography quickly caught my husband and I's attention and, once a year, Corey offers free high-quality wedding photography to a couple with a tight budget who give back to their communities. We still can't believe she chose us as the lucky 2017 recipients! From our first meeting, we felt at ease with Corey. She answered all our questions, provided practical tips to prepare for the day, and was very responsive to all our communications, pre and post wedding. On the wedding day, she made us feel so comfortable that any jitters we had about being photographed, quickly went away. Our bridal party still talks about how warm and lovely it was to have her around.
As for the pictures, I spent many hours on her blog and Instagram and loved how different it felt from other wedding photographers. She captured all the formal posed pictures, little details of the church and venue, guest pictures during cocktail hour, and so many wonderful candids through out the day. Corey has an amazing ability to capture and edit pictures that convey emotions and a story. Would highly recommend!
