Working with Love to the Core emboldens you to be complete true to you and the person that your partner fell in love with.
Not only are we going to barefoot dance, Space Jam jump, Mary Poppins’ skip, Forrest Gump run, sing like Whitney Houston (attempt to anyways), but also strip away any boxes that you may have been placed in to get to the core of who you and your partner are together. Your wedding images will be a reflection of the true partnership that you have.
I can be camera shy, but Corinne makes you feel so comfortable in front of the camera that the pictures turned out feel so natural. My wedding photos are some of my favorite pictures of my husband and I, and we have nothing but positive memories about how they came to be! Even when we were short on time after the ceremony and I started to get a little freaked out from all the stress, Corinne remained calm and happy and knew exactly what she was doing. I didn't realize how important that was in a photographer until after the fact, and I'm really glad she was there :)
We have never felt as comfortable in front of a camera as we did when Corinne photographed our proposal. She captured the love between us so effortlessly and made us feel so comfortable. Her eagerness and excitement to work with us, both before our engagement and now for our wedding, is confirmation that we chose the right photographer!
Her flexibility was incredibly appreciated with our limited availability and "meeting" with us over Skype. She was a miracle worker - from giving us a list of trusted vendors to tying the bustle on the wedding dress. Corinne encourages you to just be a couple; as a result, the photos come through with pure honesty. She puts her heart into her photography and it so clearly shows. We even had guest mention how great and attentive our photographer was at the wedding.
If you want amazingly perfect wedding photos, Corinne is the photographer you want by your side. She did a fantastic job getting to know me and my husband before the wedding so she could truly capture our personalities and love on our special day. Thank to Corinne, we now have photos that will last a lifetime that truly show the spirit of our wedding and marriage.
An engagement session is the perfect opportunity for me to get to know you as a couple; to see how you interact together and what is the best way for me to direct you. It also gives you the opportunity to see my work ethic as well as feel more comfortable in front of a camera before the big day.
Can be anywhere! Love where he proposed? Want to have the session in the home that you have built together? Going on vacay before the big day? Take me with you! Or Do you already have a location in mind? Perfect! If you don’t? No worries! I have plenty of places that I can recommend!
*NOTE - Some locations are free but some have a permit fee. If you decide to go with a location that has a permit fee it will be added to your wedding invoice.
Anything that makes you feel comfortable! We want the images main focus to be on you two. We do a lot of moving around during this session so heels and dresses with slits aren't very adaptable to the directions you'll be getting.
A good tip to add variety is to wear layered pieces. Like maybe a leather jacket, a hip hat, changeable jewelry, maybe even switch out your shoes!
Lighting! Lighting makes or breaks images. Interestingly enough, direct sunlight is not good for portraits. It causes harsh shadows across your face because the sun is right above your head. For me to give you the quality images that you see on my site we will schedule your engagement session either the hour after sunrise or the hour before sunset! Because who doesn’t love those colors in the sky?!
I know it can be a lot but I will be there helping you the entire time! The first couple minutes can be awkward but it gets better as the hour goes on! I swear ;)
I want you to feel like yourselves so I have plenty of tricks to make you two feel comfortable and focus on one another rather than me.
If your ceremony is outside makes sure the start time happens no more than 3 hours before sunset to ensure the best lighting for your photos. Lighting is everything!
There is definitely pros and cons to first looks. I personally think they are cool because it allows you and your significant other to have a moment together alone because before you know it the day will be over, it goes by so fast.
This allows you to reflect on your journey together and say that you two made it! If a first look isn’t for you and your fiancé then do a first look with your dad, your mom, a brother, or even your bridesmaids or groomsmen. The element of surprise is such a sweet moment and the surprised party will never forget it!
Consider your DJ lighting. Strobes and track lights that are multiple colors cause terrible color casting on you and your guests faces. If you still want lights opt for white color track lights to uplight your venue.
Find beautiful rooms for getting ready! Pick rooms with lots of windows for the best lighting, When the big day comes designate someone to clean up, to ensure the room is tidy and doesn’t have things all over the place.
No one likes pictures of people eating. Guests want to enjoy their meal and not have a camera in their face. So if the catering company doesn’t feed the photographers at the same time as the bride and groom we just stand there looking really creepy in a corner with nothing to do. I personally like to stay productive, so waiting around for almost an hour is a waste of the coverage you booked. Also if we’re the last to be fed usually we don’t get to eat because toasts will begin (fainting photographers is never good!). So contact your caterer beforehand to coordinate when we will be fed and no coverage will be wasted <3
Let's showcase your hard work, and get some amazing details shots. Have your invitations, save the date, jewelry, shoes, flowers, and all the rings together at your getting ready location so I can grab some shots arranging them all <3
Don't have enough time with me for a sparkler exit? Instead how about some confetti rockets during the ceremony when you are walking back down the aisle as a married couple!! Makes for some awesome celebratory shots that will wow!
HELL YES!! We photograph all and celebrate love in every way <3
Both you and your partner will need to sign a contract and then a 30% retainer will be due to reserve your date! The remaining balance will be due 30 days before your wedding date.
Definitely! I love to see how excited you are about the photos! So share away :D There will be no watermark on the digital images I send you. Please credit me on any photos you share, we love referrals!
Yes! The final product is why you hired me right?? I edit each photo individually until it is perfection under my standards and the quality you expect to receive.

6-8 weeks is usually how long it takes, depending on how busy the wedding season is. You will receive an online gallery of high resolution images. When I get home from your wedding I usually try to text you a sneak peak for you to have something to post for your friends and family to see the next day! BTW we love photo credit on social media, it’s our livelihood.
Absolutely! I am always a fan of exploring new places! Weddings over 100 miles from Baltimore, Maryland I have flat rates that we will discuss that includes travel.
You get all the photos that look good. All the beautiful, fun, badass, meaningful moments will be in your gallery. There is no reason for us to keep any of the beautiful images from you. We weed out duplicates, blurry shots, and awkward faces.
Yes but that just means that you cannot use them for professional use without permission and cannot sell the images for profit. You will receive personal copyright allowing you to post them to social media and permission to print the images.
I have been photographing weddings since 2015!!
You will receive an online digital gallery with your high resolution images. Here you can share the gallery with friends and family, order high quality prints, and download the full gallery .zip file for you to save to your computer. I usually deliver an average of 600-800 images. After you download the images you will be sent a print release allowing you to get images printed anywhere. After the gallery has been delivered to you, it is your responsibility to save your images and back them up in a safe location.
I am very capable of working on my own. But I want to ensure I am not only capturing you, the couple, but also your guests and any moments that occur if you aren’t around. But it can be hard to cover everything when there are 150+ people. If that is around your guest count I highly recommend adding the second shooter option to your collection for a full picture of your wedding day :)
There are always so many awesome moments during weddings but my hands down favorite is right after the couple has made their way down the aisle after the ceremony. It is that split second moment that they are finally alone just together away from all of their guests and bridal party. There’s this amazing interaction between the two of them where they are so excited and so stoked they made it to this point!! It’s such a beautiful moment.
