“Which of my photographs is my favorite? The one I’m going to take tomorrow.” - Imogen Cunningham
Hey, I'm Cory! I'm a lifestyle and wedding photographer based out of Timmins, Ontario. That's about 3-4 hours from Sudbury (for those who aren't sure). You might know it as Shania Twain's hometown (I'm cringing a little about using that reference).
What's a lifestyle photographer you may ask? It's about capturing real life situations, being in the moment and not posing (often). It's about telling stories with photos really.
Nervous about your first time photoshoot? No worries, I'm a candid shooter and have been told by many that my sessions are very comfortable.
Enough about that though, let's talk about me! (this section of the page is about me, right?)
I'm an adventure seeker who thrives creatively when outdoors. A little stubborn and a slight perfectionist, but that's what allows me to capture timeless moments, again and again.
My passion for photography began back in 2016 while at a wedding in Mexico (it was my brother's wedding and my first time out of the country overseas). Although I always considered myself somewhat artsy, photography became my creative channel shortly after that trip. I'm a business professional in the retail sector and am available most evenings and weekends. I always recommend booking at lease 3 weeks in advance.
When working with clients, I pride myself with professionalism, a good work ethic, fast shoot to photo delivery turn around, and connecting with my clients to create a fun and comfortable atmosphere.
Have more questions about me? Simply just ask!
... and if you've read this far, I assume you're interested in booking a session. That said, I hope you consider me as your photographer. Well, I look forward to meeting you and creating memories together - for you.
Where are you located?
I'm based out of Timmins, Ontario however I'm willing and eager to travel anywhere you need me.
What do you shoot?
Couples, Families, engagements, Weddings and events. I consider myself a Lifestyle & Wedding photographer. I shoot a limited number of weddings per year.
Do I get prints with my session?
No. All sessions come with a private gallery where you can download your high resolution images and/or web friendly photos. Individual Prints & Print packages can be purchased via your gallery or by contacting Cory.
The digital files are yours, however be sure to ask about full resolution copies as some packages don't include them. It's not recommended that you print web friendly photos.
What kind of gear do you use?
I shoot with a Canon 5D Mark 4 as my primary and Mark 3 as my secondary. I use an 6D as a back up. I love my Tamron lenses. I shoot with a prime 35 & 85mm mostly. I use my 24-70 and 70-200mm for weddings.
Where do you shoot?
I have a few go to spots depending on the time of year, but encourage my clients to pick their own location near them, in the city or the outskirts. OR for a true lifestyle session, in your home or during a couple/family outing.
Do you do videography?
Just for fun, not professionally. Not accepting any inquiries.
I love your work but I'm on a budget. Do you offer any discounts?
To be fair to all clients and honor my work as a professional, I don't give any discounts on my fees.
However, once you become a client, I give referral credits... Ask me how it works!
What happens if it rains or there is bad weather?
If we're shooting outdoors and bad whether happens on our session day or during, we’ll simply have to reschedule for another day. Your retainer (deposit) is never lost in such cases. And if we can’t find a day to reschedule that works for both of us, this would be the only type of incident that I would refund your deposit.
How do I know you're the right photographer?
Well, if you're reading this by now, you must dig my style, right? ;)
When going through my portfolio, keep in mind two things: How I capture moments & expressions along with how I retouch my images. I love trying different ideas and always get my client's input on what they like. I also make an effort to never repeat an idea to try and keep it original. Second, read my testimonials. I make every session and event an memorable experience. One of my favourite parts of being a photographer is showing an image to a client and seeing their reaction to it.
Do you offer some kind of guarantee?
** For lifestyle sessions only**
This means that if you're not happy with your photos, I'll redo the shoot for free & offer a store credit to help purchase prints. I'm happy to say this guarantee has never been put to use before, but I do like to offer it as peace of mind to my clients.
Are you a registered business?
Yes, I'm a registered Ontario business and acting as a small supplier (CRA). I also have professional and commercial liability insurance.

Key is always to book early and I limit my sessions & events every month. Please note, Fall is my busiest time of the year typically and summer is my busiest wedding months.
