Cory Parris Photography creates emotional photostories of your wedding and life.

Photographing weddings is a passion for me. I love to see the emotions of life and how they come to the forefront at the changing points of our lives. The tears on your mothers face, the pride in your father’s eyes, the passion between you and your spouse - I love it all. I want to capture the emotion that you show, showcase the passion that you feel and help you remember it for the rest of your lives.

I feel like my life actually started, and everything good in my life comes from the day I married my wife Leslie. Every time I photograph a wedding, I think of Leslie and the way I felt at our wedding day. That is my goal to capture. The real, beautiful, amazing love, passion and fun between the couple and by extension, their friends and families. Read less

I process all your images with a discerning and critical eye. I work to bring out the best in the image rather than working on special effects.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
I have photographed weddings for a number of years and you can't surprise me or stump me with any lighting condition!
Is your media preference film or digital?
My photography is done with professional digital equipment.
How many photographers do you work with?
I quite often work with another photographer as needed by the size and complexity of the event.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
I will be at your event. I have never missed one in 15 years. However, my contract states you are entitled to a full refund if I do not show, but no one has ever needed that clause.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
I never photograph more than one wedding in a day.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
If something should happen to me, I have an extensive list of contacts that I will use to provide you with another great photographer. If it is something truly unfortunate, my wife has access to the contacts. However, I have never missed an event.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
I have an extensive set of equipment and backup equipment that is too long to list in this space!

I have packages set up with different lengths of time to meet the needs of your wedding.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
As long as it takes to take a drink out of my water bottle or Diet Pepsi. Usually about 30 seconds at a time. I try to take one break of this length every hour or so. Oh, plus I want 10 minutes to shove some food down my gullet.
Do you charge for travel?
I don't charge for travel in the local Seattle area. I do when I am traveling farther than that.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
Officially the answer is 6 weeks. However, I try to surprise all my clients with service times a fraction of that.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
Yes. All of these are available.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
They own them.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
The couple may make as many personal copies as they would like. All commercial image use (billboards, advertisements, etc.) must be through me.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
Yes, unless specifically requested not to by the couple.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Will images be available for viewing online?
What kind of albums do you offer?
I provide a wide range of albums some of the world's finest manufacturers. I take great pride in the images I produce and the albums I create for my clients.
When will the client get the final album?
Usually the longest delay is with my clients choosing the images.

We were living on the East Coast when we first heard about Cory and we absolutely fell in love with his photography. The thing that we were initially drawn to was his ability to produce pictures that made you feel that you were there at each event. He was able to capture the emotions of people rather than the boring, generic wedding pictures that we had seen so often. We knew no matter where we got married, we wanted Cory to be our photographer! Cory photographed our wedding and was absolutely incredible. We had several guests comment about how great of a photographer he was; in that he was always there but kind of a fly on the wall. When we got the pictures back, we were absolutely amazed! He captured every moment of our day so perfectly and looking at the pics we felt like we were right back at our wedding day! We have had so many complements on our pictures (not on us, but in particular on the picture composition itself!) He is not only a great photographer, but so easy to work with. On the day of the wedding, he was such a wonderful, positive presence. Cory has an amazing eye and we feel so blessed to have had him capture our big day! I could not recommend Cory more highly for a photographer.

Cory was wonderful. He knew the venues and was able to capture many terrific pictures creatively. He worked very professionally to guide our bride and groom, and their guests (who included many non-English speakers) to get those important pictures. Cory was terrific to work with. Very personalized approach.

Cory is an absolute professional who delivered one of the greatest gifts of our wedding experience: lasting photographs that we will be happy to share for years to come. He brought his daughter Alyssa who, while a teenager, is extremely competent, and every single person who's seen our photos comments on how great they are. He is extremely personable and is able to capture the true emotion and joy of the moment while still getting flattering shots. THANK YOU, Cory!
