Hi there! Congratulations on your engagement and thank you so much for stopping by. :) I'm Cornelia and I'm a international wedding and portrait photographer with a love for people, fun, and of course cake. I'm currently based in Tampa, Florida, but travel all over the country and world to capture my clients' special moments. I've been doing wedding photography for 8 years now and I still absolultely love every single wedding day I get to capture. Being able to be part of someone's big day and capturing all of the love, emotions, and happy moments is very special to me.
While photographing, I approach things in a light-hearted and fun way, so that everyone can feel comfortable in front of the camera. Because let's be honest, being photographed can be extremely awkward and is not something that most people are used to. And I truely believe someone who is happy and relaxed will look their best in photos. My goal is to ensure that you get to enjoy your wedding day to the fullest and receive beautiful images that you can treasure for a lifetime as they allow you to relive every magical moment of your wedding day over and over again.
I offer a variety of services to help ensure your wedding day is exactly what you wished for and more:

Simply The Best
We could not thank Cornelia enough for the incredible work she did for our wedding. She is simply an amazing photographer and businesswoman! First of all, her photography skills are just impeccable. She has that “eye” for capturing truly incredible photos. She is also vocal about how to get the pictures that are so Instagram worthy. She is incredibly helpful in coaching couples on what to do to get those money shots! Her editing style is beautiful as well. All of the images that she produces are fairytale-esque, dreamy, and romantic. Photography really matters to me and if you look at her work she is consistent in her quality, every single photo is a work of art. After looking at SO many photographers her pictures stuck out to me because of this, you simply will not find and unpolished photo by her.
She is wonderful on the business side of things as well! Her website is user friendly, getting in contact with her is easy, and when it comes to planning she has thought of everything. During the holiday season, she even sent a WONDERFUL care package including a ring cleaning pen (SO Thoughtful!) and an AMAZING magazine she created filled with helpful wedding planning tips and info (It’s seriously so helpful, I’m currently sharing it my friends that are getting married!)
As we were planning, Cornelia was so helpful. She created and collaborated with our DJ and videographer to make the perfect timeline. She even contacted my florist to make sure that there were flowers available in our get-ready room for invitation suite pictures!
During the day when the site organizer fell short, she went above and beyond to keep things moving and our timeline on track.
We hired Cornelia because of her obvious photography talent but we got so much more than a fantastic photographer. Her friendliness, professionalism, and overall wedding-planning and coordination knowledge are what sets her above the rest.

Stop your searching and hire Cornelia!
I could not have asked for a better wedding photographer. Cornelia was fun to work with and she had the best ideas that made every photo so special. Her attention to detail is impeccable. If I had one little hair out of place, she would stop and fix me to make sure I looked 100% perfect before she took a photo. She also got the photos back to us extremely fast (within a month) and sent us sneak peaks 2 days later!! Now that's top of the line service!Sent on 03/19/2020
