“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.

BIG BIG thank you from the bottom of our hearts for capturing such beautiful pictures and moments, we couldnt thank you enough!
You are truly skilled and appreciate every minute you put into all of our photos!!
Cory was incredible and so easy to work with. His attention to detail was amazing. Prior to our session, we met in person to discuss exactly what I wanted to capture in our images. Cory truly put a lot of thought and effort into our session, and his photographs are the proof of this. Not only did Cory capture every image I had wanted, but he also suggested different poses/styles and themes he thought I would like. We spent 3 hours on our session, and at the end; he asked me if there were any other photos...
We had such a great experience doing our maternity shoot with Cory! he was very well prepared and kept things fun while remaining professional. He also made sure the location and the poses were easy to get in and out of, which was important to me because being 9months pregnant isn't easy lol. Pictures were ready in record time! 100% will choose him again for our next shoot!
Cory did both our engagement photos and wedding. His creativity, style and patience shine through every photo. He was able to blend our vision with his own to create some very special photos. Cory has all of the right equipment to get the best shots in any lighting conditions and can even make creative use of otherwise poor weather. It rained a bit on our wedding day, but Cory used that to create some one of a kind shots. If you're looking for a talented photographer to capture your event, look no further
My whole family truly enjoyed our photo session with Cory. It was fun, light and easy. Being the organizer of our family I was pleased with how efficient the whole process was. From start to finish I had access to all of the information I needed and all of my questions were answered before I even had to ask them. We received our photos earlier than we expected and could not be happier with the final product! All of this, for a reasonable fee. We will cherish these photos forever and look forward to our next
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.
