Passionate for the Planet + My Couplesmaine destination wedding photographer

Hello lovers, thank you for considering me for your unforgettable elopement! I’m thrilled that you would like to know more about how I can help you on your sustainable journey. This is just the beginning to the adventures you will be sharing together.  My approach is artful storytelling where you can be your authentic selves.  This will give you some background on your investment, my approach and what to expect.  I am happy to answer any questions throughout your planning process.  My couples say my superpower is putting them at ease so they can relax and enjoy every moment. I am excited to connect with you on a deeper level should you pick me as your photographer!

My couples appreciate the way I see the world and tell artful love stories.  My imagination is endless and inspired by your connection to each other and our natural surroundings.  Whether that is in your backyard, on top of a mountain, in the woods, the ocean or an art museum.

I will send you a questionnaire to help create a timeline for you so we have enough time for beautiful imagery.  I always seek natural light and look for the best lighting conditions for those gorgeous photos you see on my web site and Instagram.  Good light is essential for capturing the magic and if you can sneak away for golden hour for a few portraits, even better.

I require an 30 minutes to an hour for getting ready to get detail photos and candids, portraits by the best window light where there is room to move. Up to an hour or more for couple portraits. About 15-30 minutes for family and friend photos.  The best lighting is sunrise or golden hour for the most magical photos.

Because this is all about you, I prefer to spend as much time with the two of you together without anyone around for the best intimate portraits.  By having this time alone together, we will avoid distractions so you can be in the moment and freely express your love for one another in a private setting.  Should I be given this  time alone with you, the images you see in this guide will give me the tools and time to be successful in providing you with beautiful imagery.

My influences are art, nature, fashion and music. I always look for ways to tell your unique story Every elopement is fascinating because there’s nobody like you.  You are an original work of art and that’s how your photos should be, authentically you.  I don’t want to produce carbon copies of what you see on Pinterest. Beauty is everywhere and I see it in the most ordinary places to make it look EXTRAordinary.  I want you to feel something when you look at your photos and connect to that memory. I can’t wait to show you what I see in your love.

A ton of energy and investment goes into creating the elopement of your dreams.  Your time is your biggest investment and I value how precious it is.  Finding your destination, colors, flowers, details and so much more, this day will be the most planned and photographed in your entire life, so why not capture everything.  It’s a BFD and I value your efforts.  I love bringing meaning to the details, so please have them ready for me when I arrive.

Your day will go by in a blink and I am going to capture it all so you can remember how you felt, what it looked like and provide you with everlasting memories.  After the party has ended, the flowers have passed on and the delicious food consumed, all that will remain are your photos.

I take my work seriously and am fully committed to not only taking moving photographs, but to get to know you along the way, so I know what means the most to you.  I’m passionate about the planet and my couples. I respond to your energy and natural way you communicate and interact with one another.  I want you to feel comfortable and relaxed knowing you can be yourselves and you can remember how you felt that day when you married your best friend.  The laughter, the tears and the passion.

Looking for real unposed moments, but feel awkward in front of the camera?  No worries, you are not alone.  As a photographer, I’ve been in front of the camera and know how important it is to put myself in your shoes and feel vulnerable.  I have suggestions to help you feel at ease and prompts to interact with one another.  The last thing you need to worry about is looking at the camera.  Rather, when you focus and connect with your partner, touch as often as possible, take deep breaths, move, walk together and laugh until your cheeks hurt, those are the most memorable photographs.  I want you to feel comfortable, not do something that feels unnatural to you and your relationship.  Some couples are touchy feely and others are not.  It’s up to me to get to know you and suggest the most comfortable ideas to you.  Having your photos taken by me is better than couples therapy.  You’ll find ways to connect that would surprise you.  I am far from traditional, but am happy to capture a few of the those for you for your folks to appreciate.

Love Notes

lace factory weddinglace factory weddingLong before I picked out my dress or knew the color scheme of our wedding, I knew the style of photography I wanted for our wedding day. I was looking for a photographer who could tell a story through pictures and bring back all of the feelings that we had felt that day. When I found Corey online I could immediately tell she was a brilliant artist but she turned out to be so much more than just the person behind the camera. She became an integral part of our wedding. We first met Corey at our engagement shoot in 2017. My husband and I were a bit nervous but Corey’s lightheartedness put us at ease. By the end of the shoot, it felt like we were already old friends. From there, Corey personalized our experience so much so that we wondered how she possibly could be so involved with each and every one of her couples. From the moment we met her, it felt like her sole focus was on us and our journey but we soon realized that this is just the person she is. She’s genuine, compassionate, spirited, and full of love for her couples and her craft. Her passion of course shined through in all of the photos she took on our wedding day. Corey captured every last detail, from my bridesmaids and I getting ready at the hotel to our sparkler sendoff at the end of the night. The pictures are so beautiful that it’s actually hard to put into words how much they mean to us. To say that we had a flawless experience would be an understatement. From our new friendship to our truly epic engagement and wedding photos, we could not have ever dreamed of anything more. Corey, you already know this but we love you and we can’t thank you enough for so perfectly capturing the best day of our lives. To all the future brides out there, I hope Corey is free the day of your wedding because I really can’t imagine anyone better than her.

Choosing Corey as your wedding photographer is the best decision you can make! We received our wedding gallery quicker than expected and the pictures are absolutely stunning – so soft, organic and natural. We happened to come across Corey on Instagram and immediately loved her style. We met with her in person about 8 months before our wedding to get to know one another. She was so kind to host us in her studio on a Saturday and talk through all of the details with us. We are so pleased we did an engagement session with her as it helped loosen us up for the big day and also gave us a sense of what kind of photos we were looking for come the ceremony/reception. Corey was always extremely responsive via email, on time and full of positivity. Not only does she take beautiful photos, she has a calming presence which we so appreciated the day of the wedding. Corey made sure we took advantage of every opportunity during our ceremony to capture every shot imaginable. We are so glad we have over 800 photos to look back on for years to come.
