Absolutely Brilliant!

We hired Cory from out of state in the comfort of our home over the phone/email . From start to finish Cory was very professional, he made talking through pricing easy to understand and was very helpful navigating us through a schedule that was time/light sensitive in a city we love but don't call home. We didn't even think about some of the things Cory recommended, and we are so glad he spoke up when we were blindly bouncing ideas around. On our wedding day plans had to change last minute due to weather but Cory made sure we both remained calm and in the loop on his ideas, it was so reassuring to know that Cory had thought through our wedding day and planned for back up ideas in case of rain, things we foolishly didn’t even consider. He recommended a beautiful bar around the corner of our venue where he captured some incredible pre wedding candid moments between friends and family. Cory took some stunning photos of us walking and posing through the streets of the French Quarter, he made us feel so comfortable and relaxed in-front of the camera in a chaotic environment. During the second line Cory went above and beyond even making sure the lights from the police escort weren't too close so our pictures wouldn't be covered in flashes of red and blue lighting, he was always thinking ahead. Throughout the evening Cory seemed to be everywhere without being in sight, the photos of us and our guests are amazing and just so beautifully shot. He managed to capture what we can only describe as pure love and happiness in our photos. We loved having Cory be a part of our day and are so thankful for his professional and easy to work with personality. He some how manages to stay cool, calm and collected whilst being so excited and hyped for everything. This is just one of many things that we feel sets him apart from other photographers who just show up and do the job, Cory showed up ready to create memories and beautiful artistic images. Thank you so much Cory!

Incredible!

I spent hours and hours trying to find a photographer that would match what I was looking for - capturing the day but in the most candid, classic way and having received our photographs I can say I'm so happy I found Cory. He was able to find the most stunning backdrops at our venue Race and Religious with stunning light, and was also efficient at getting our family shots as well. His style is timeless and it's so difficult to find that in wedding photographers. We also received our photographs back one week later which was insanely fast and the quality of work was super high. Everyone loved him as well and he was so easy going! Highly recommend
