As a professional wedding photographer myself, choosing someone to capture my wedding was more difficult than I thought it would be! After months of looking, we decided that it had to be Cory & LaRae, and we even flew them 3,000 miles to the east coast so that they could be the team capturing our wedding weekend. They did a great job, and, as they were friends of ours already, it was extra comfy having them at our intimate celebratory weekend! They both bring something special to the craft of wedding photography, and they put people at ease with their constant smiles and personalities. If you're looking for a unique product, and a pleasure of an experience, I recommend them highly!

Corey & LaRae were great to work with in our wedding. They were midrange in price, but for the money we got three photographers (2 + assistant) and half a day of shooting. They have more of an artistic style versus photo-journalist or staged style.
