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‒images that 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:

My Absolute Dream Photographer
Cornelia was not only so sweet and sooo easy to work with, her photos are the best I've seen in the industry. My expectations were already high and she far surpassed them. She really captured the true emotion and beauty of the day I will cherish these photos forever. In my opinion I got far more than I paid for and would hire her and recommend her to everyone I meet. Check out her instagram, her work speaks for itself. She has one of those infectious bubbly personalities that you just feel so comfortable to be around as if you were family. Love her and love my photos.Sent on 06/12/2019

My husband and I were planning a wedding from out of town and got connected with Cornelia. We are SO happy that we hired her to photograph our special day. Cornelia was super responsive to emails, which was so helpful planning it from the distance. Cornelia helped coordinate a realistic timeline. Most importantly, Cornelia actually stuck with the timeline. We had a huge bridal party, with some outgoing personalities. Cornelia was able to direct and keep everyone in line in order to get some great shots. Besides Cornelia's amazing organization, she captured the MOST beautiful pictures throughout our day!! I am bias, but they are absolutely stunning. Its going to be so hard to pick which ones we want in our album. Thank you Cornelia for capturing our wedding with photos that we will have forever! If you are looking for a talented photographer in Sarasota, Cornelia is your girl!Sent on 06/05/2019

Cornelia is amazing!!! She has exceeded all my expectations for all of the shoots I’ve done with her (yes, that’s multiple!)! Being in front of the camera is not always the easiest for me, but we had so much fun and felt incredibly comfortable with her guidance! Not to mention our photos are so perfect!!! You won’t regret going with her!!Sent on 09/10/2019
