"Cory and Yamalia were fantastic to work with. They do this for fun, and they have a real passion for photography. They are very chill and easy to work with, and very reasonably priced. After they finished shooting on our wedding day (well into the reception) they partied with us for the rest of the night! We loved that they had as much fun at our wedding as we did, and they were a part of our memories, not just bystanders, and that's how life should be!"

Brittany

"WE LOVE CORY AND YAMALIA!!! They were an absolute dream duo. We felt completely comfortable around them AND they honestly were a blast to hang out with all day. We felt more like they were friends than our photographers. We've even received some of our teasers and it's only the day after our wedding. So far, we are absolutely blown away at the beautiful shots they took. I would HIGHLY recommend them. Look no further...THEY should be your photographers. I cannot say enough good things about either of them.

"Cory and his wife were AMAZING. They met with us before the wedding to go over details, answered all emails in a timely manner and showed up early/stayed late day-of the wedding to get all the shots. They listened to what we wanted but also had great ideas and viewpoints that turned out incredible. We got our photos back earlier than expected and we were especially grateful! They are a great team and just really nice people to work with, I highly recommend.!!"

Rose

"Cory took care of me and my fiancé's engagement shots and we couldn't have asked for a better outcome. He was so creative and detailed. I have already recommended Cory to all of my friends! Awesome Job!"

Patricia

"Best photographer I've ever worked with. We had wedding photos done. The service was fantastic, photos are beautiful. Could not have asked for a better team. Five star isn't a high enough rating."

Allison

"Far exceeded our expectations, beautiful photos, fast turnaround, and exemplary customer service. Fun & easy-going to work with. I hope to have an occasion to get more photos soon!"

Andre

"I would gladly hire Cory & his wife again in a heartbeat. I loved the relaxed vibe, they made me comfortable, and had a great attention to detail."

Melinda

"Awesome Photos of my 1970 Olds 4-4-2
Convertible, yet Cory's personality is even better!
 He came to my house 3 times - brought the pix later the SAME DAY and then came over to help me with compression, downloading, and uploading.
 Exceptional service all around!"
