A hurricane decided to crash my beautiful outdoor wedding I had been planning for over a year, and all plans and details had to change morning-of. I was so grateful for Corrin's calmness and positive-attitude. Shortly after the reception started, Corrin pulled Robert and I aside to briefly show us a preview of some of the pictures she had captured. The photos turned out beautiful, bright, and full of color despite the gloomy, windy hurricane going on outside. It is now almost four months after our wedding and our friends and family still talk about how amazing our photos are. Thanks to Corrin I now have these photos from our wedding day that I will treasure forever.
Corrin went above and beyond for me! She made my vision come to life, the engagement pictures were more than I could have ever dreamed of. When I received the wedding photos I cried looking at every single one! She captured all of the emotions and laughter that happened during our wedding day. Corrin has this ability to always put a smile on your face. She is the kindest most genuine person I know, and there is no doubt in my mind that Corrin was the best choice for us.
The decorations, the band, the food, the flowers, etc. are all super important, but pictures and video were extra important to me. It's priceless to be able to look back on that day and to know we will be able to share them with the family for generations to come. Corrin's heart for her job really shows. She doesn't want just the best picture, she wants the best picture for that couple. If you didn’t get the point by now - we were THRILLED to have Corrin as our photographer. She rocked every bit of it and I'm proud to be a CJ Bride!
I cried my eyes out when my wedding was over. I hugged Corrin like my life depended on it. Because for the months leading up to my wedding I need Corrin more than anything. She was my wedding life line. She kept me so organized, calm, and really just sane. I truly don't know how I would have ever got through the wedding planning without her. There was no other choice but Corrin. I just LOVE her. She made my wedding more memorable than I could have imagined.
Corrin was seriously all I could have asked for and more! Corrin and I have known each other since college, and I didn't think twice when I asked her to be my wedding photographer. I have always loved her work, and I couldn't think of anyone else that could do a better job. She traveled all over Virginia to accommodate where I wanted the perfect pictures taken. She came to Richmond for my engagement shoot, to Roanoke for my bridal portraits, and then Roanoke again for my wedding day! I loved every single one of my pictures from all my sessions. They came out beautifully and it was exactly the style I was looking for!
We decided to take a few pictures of just my husband and I before the ceremony. After the first shot I remember hearing Corrin saying "hold on, the photographer should not be crying right now!" Naturally I shed a few tears as well! She blew us all away with the images that she shared...they were displayed throughout the whole reception. Beyond amazing. I will always remember when she jumped in and danced to Copperhead Road with me! Corrin is my life long show choir buddy and I absolutely loved that she was able to share that moment with me.
Corrin was the first vendor I locked down in the process of planning our wedding. I was ecstatic to have her be our photographer since my husband-to-be and I had gone to high school with her and she already knew us personally. Corrin kept it 100% professional the entire time and her organized, Type-A personality even helped me with other aspects of planning (and, trust me, I mean Type-A as a huge compliment.) Every bride wants their photographer to be involved in helping to choose a venue to shoot, guidance with picking out accessories, and to be timely for all meetings. Corrin has all of these qualities and truly exceeded my expectations with not only the planning process, but also the photos she captured.
The engagement pictures really set the tone of the whole story and served as a way to capture the relationship you just said yes to for the rest of you life. Then came the wedding and I can't even tell you how much we loved those pictures. You exceeded all expectations. You captured every moment I wanted to take with me. Even the ones with the groomsmen, and those boys are hard to get under control! They are elegant, Kodak, and fun. I seriously look at them at least once a week... no lie. It's one thing to snap away on a camera, but it's another to get the kind of pictures you did... especially with the crowd we had!
She was so knowledgeable and answered all my questions, and I had a lot of questions. I have taken away a lifelong friend in Corrin. Her kind loving spirit makes you want to just be around her. She just makes you feel so happy. I was pretty confident we were going to have the most amazing pictures but I didn't know just how perfect they were going to be. She made sure every detail was just right. From a strand of hair to a wrinkle in the dress. It's those little details that just make every picture stunning.
She made me feel so special on my wedding day, and I am so grateful for that. Also, she puts all of the pictures on a website, so you have access to all of them at anytime which is amazing. I was able to save them all to my computer and print the ones that I wanted. If you need a wedding photographer, you should definitely go with Corrin. She is down to earth, the sweetest person, and does fantastic work!
This one choice is the only investment from your wedding day that you will be able to cherish for years and years to come. This is YOUR love story; invest in YOURSELF. I'm based in Virginia (or wherever you're based) and I love to travel anywhere I can shoot beautiful-souled people having the time of their lives.
