It all starts with your inquiry

Let's start

Okay, you sent me a message to book a session, I’m excited to meet you! - I’ll respond back in 24-48 hours to discuss availability and session details. Please make sure you’ve reviewed my standard session contract, by using my services you automatically consent and agree (if you don't want photos published or shared, you must let me know while booking) however, I always do my best to have you review it before our session.

Planning your session

Time & Place

I always encourage my clients to chose a meaningful location. However, if you're unsure of where to go, no worries. I have a few go to spots depending on the time of year, in the city or the outskirts of Timmins.

“ Okay, we have a date, time and place setup. What’s next?” I’ll meet you there - the shoot starts briefly after arriving to our location, allowing time for a quick huddle prior to our session. The shoot ends on the last shutter press.

I said small tips right?

What to wear & comfort

I may have some recommendations, for example, dress in season... Use a color wheel when dressing a spouse or family member. Meaning, don't wear all the same color, use shades... Dress with accessories, example scarfs, certain hats and jewlery etc... I’m no fashion expert so I’ll leave most of the outfit planning to you. Any mid session outfit changes should be discussed prior to the shoot.

 

"I’m a little awkward and/or nervous…" No worries! I’m a very “candid shooter” and will ask you to do silly things in order to get a laugh or natural pose out of you, your partner, or the group. In terms of posed shots, I’ll ask if you have any ideas or things you want to try at the beginning/during the shoot and I’ll incorporate my own with them.

Delivering memories

"Last question! When will the photos be ready and how will I/we get them?" Once the shoot is wrapped up, the remaining payment is due minus any deposit/retainer. Photo delivery time for a standard lifestyle session is 1-3 weeks (typical turn around time is 7 days), events & engagements, a little longer and weddings 6-12 weeks (typically 5-6 at times). Session pricing doesn't include prints, prints can be purchased

You'll receive an email with a link to your gallery or I'll message you a link to download the photos once ready.

 
 
 
 

FAQs

Frequently asked questions

 

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.

How can I book you?

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.

Making every experience unique and memorable.

 

Amanda K.

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!!

Holly C.

“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...”

Danielle L.

“"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!"”

Jen M.

“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”

Kyle R.

MJ A.

“Cory did such an amazing job with our couple shoot. He took the time to make sure our dog was always looking at the camera which makes the picture extra beautiful. He had a amazing idea and made us feel comfortable. If you are looking for a great photographer who isn’t afraid to try new things and makes the shoot fun, he is the guy!!”

Mike S.

“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.”

Karington V.

“Cory did our engagement photos, he did an incredible job. He was very patient with our chocolate lab, Lexi , which was very important to me. Cory took his time and made sure that we had all the shots I had hoped for and even encouraged us to use a second, further location that made for amazing photos even though it took more time then planned, he was more then happy to go explore. He did a great job and will definitely be using him to capture our life moments.”

Melissa L.

“We did a fall family shoot with Cory and he was very patient with our 5 and 8 years old. He had a lot of great suggestions for pictures and was willing to try poses we wanted. He knew we were excited to see our photos so he was very prompt in sending us a few sneak peaks. When we got or photos we were so happy. He captured so many special moments that we didn’t even realize he took photos of. I have received many compliments on the photos I have printed from his shoot.”
