ALPACA MY BAGS.
Hey, I'm Cori, a natural light wedding photographer in Southern California, but down to travel anywhere you need me to go. The world could always use more light, joy, color, and beauty, don’t ya think? :) That’s what I try to show through my photos. If you're wondering whether I'm the photographer you've been looking for, well, here are 3 things you should know about me...
1) I love adventures seeking out beautiful landscapes that I've dreamed about from books. The world is so vast and I want to keep discovering and exploring. I have this insatiable curiosity for the beautiful world around me and dream of all the possibilities at night.
2) My happiest moment in photography is watching my couples becoming more confident in themselves during the shoot. As someone who struggled in the past with self-love and self-confidence, I love giving people that love and confidence in themselves. I love showing them they are enough, perfect, beautiful, wonderfully made, and loved. Seeing people suddenly bloom into confident models during photoshoots is the BEST feeling in the world I can’t even describe. That is why I LOVE what I do.
3) Other than reading books, I enjoy reading people. I love hearing people's stories, passions, and dreams and learning about where they've been to shape their life. I love quiet, deep, and meaningful connections with people and telling their stories in pictures and words.
THINGS I LOVE
Walking barefoot in the grass and collecting leaves and flowers to dry in my favorite books
Waking up slowly to the sound of rain pattering outside my window
Tea (sadly not much of a coffee person though I love the smell of it)
Cake, macarons, pastries, ice cream...did I mention cake? (Yes, I'll be wanting to try a slice of yours at your wedding)
Travelin' and Explorin' (The wilderness must be explored! Caw-caw-raar!)
THINGS I'M LEARNING
Letting go of perfection and celebrating progress
Meet The Team
Founder, Visionary Photo Boss, Lead Photographer & Designer
Hey thas me! I wear a lot of hats running this business. In addition to being the lead photographer at Cori Story Photography, I'm also a graphic designer and calligrapher. I design all the nifty pdfs you'll be getting once we book. Need custom calligraphy signage or hand lettered placards for your wedding? Coming right up!
Cori is the genius and artist behind it all and I am the sounding board that helps turns those dreams into concrete reality. Basically I make sure that everything runs smoothly. I also have the privilege of talking to amazing couples to see if we are a good fit for each other.
I love music, traveling (11 countries so far), and listening to people’s stories to empower people so they feel worthy, beautiful, and powerful beyond measure.
My late birthday gift came by email yesterday...I got the photos and oh my God... I have NO WORDS! THANK YOU Cori! Thank you so much! That indeed warmed my heart! I almost couldn’t sleep cuz I was so excited 😂 I have no words to describe the pics that I got...GOD, SHE IS GOOD!!! She rocks!!! Those photos are AMAZING! You rock girl! I am so proud of having a friend so talented! I will indeed post your pics with no changes, your work is perfect! Those photos were my birthday present, I will keep them forever (I will even print some of them to put on our future house, including the one that are the 4 of us ❤️). I wish you and David the best that this world can offer, and tons of success in your career! ❤️❤️❤️❤️ Girl I am serious, you rock! I hope you fly higher and higher everyday!
