"From initial inquiry to photo delivery, Cory was a pleasure to work with. He responded quickly to all emails and questions, stayed extra at our event to ensure we were satisfied, and delivered the professional photos quickly afterwards."


"Cory and his wife were amazing to work with! They put us at ease and were a pleasure throughout the entire experience. I would highly recommend them!"


"We picked out a place to do the photos but had
no idea it was under construction. Thanks to Cory going the day before and noticing that, we had
found a much better place!! He & his wife are very professional and have high quality work! I will definitely return to him and send anyone his way
for future needs! 100 Thumbs up!!"


"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!"


"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."


"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!"


"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."


"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!"
