Brides Talk | Katie

I love love love it when I get past bridesmaids as clients.  It’s always super awesome because I already know them and they know how it rolls on wedding days with me.  It’s also fun to see past brides and grooms since I consider them all friends 🙂  I have to admit Katie & Grey became one of my favorite clients ever when they had CUPCAKES ready for me when I arrived!  Katie is a fantastic wedding invitation designer so her wedding was a photographers DREAM to shoot because not only did she have amazingly gorgeous details but she is in the industry so she tailored her wedding for optimal wedding photography opportunities.  Love!


“We first met Corey in August ’09 because she was shooting our friend’s wedding – Carla and Craig. I was a bridesmaid so I got to spend a lot of time with her. But I first started admiring her work a year earlier, and kept her in the back of my mind, and after Carla and Craig had their engagement photos done, I got on the phone to see how she liked her! Of course, Carla loved her, and I put in our call and booked her after we were engaged. Since we live in Columbus, and Corey is in Canton, we didn’t actually meet Corey until Carla and Craigs wedding, after we had booked her! — Booking Corey was the first, easiest, and most stress-free vendor booking we did after we got engaged!

You should really enjoy being around your photographer because they are going to be with you, all day. They are there for all your sweet and semi-private moments. Its SO important to trust and enjoy them, and that is exactly how we felt about Corey. She is sweet, helpful, jumps in when she needs to take charge, and sits back when she doesn’t. Also, she was SO accommodating when we told her we wanted to have our fur-son come join us for some of our photos, and accommodated our very full schedule and large families. It means so much to us that she took the time to capture all of the little details that we had incorporated into the day because they all meant so much to us. She captured every single one of them!

I loved Corey’s ability to capture the emotional moments and her photos are so filled with life! The images we got are bright and colorful and really help convey the fun, and lively atmosphere we had. Working in the wedding industry, I have been looking at wedding images for years and Corey’s always stood out and spoke to me.

Thanks Corey – You were a wonderful part of our wedding day and it was a pleasure to have you with us. The only drawback is now I can’t wait to do more photo shoots with you!

p.s. Corey is the fastest photo-proofer in the west. She had our photos online in the blink of an eye!”
