From Corey Cagle ~
I love to see other people happy and I am a sucker for a love story.
I love the crazy things people do. You can't pay for comedy like that!
My favorites: Skydiving, white chocolate truffles, music of all kinds, obsessing over crypto, Pittsburgh Steelers, exploring new places, crying over romantic comedies, dancing, helping others succeed, seeing the Cirque Du Soleil, sunshine, friends, laughter, adventures, and most importantly living life.
Education: I have two degrees, one in Mechanical Engineering and one Mechatronics Engineering. And yes I will brag about my 3.86 GPA because I worked hard for it!!!!!
What is your experience? I’ve been professionally capturing weddings since 2003. Mostly self taught, I've studied everything I could to help me learn the technical aspects of my work. I crave learning and finding new and creative ways of conveying what I see into images for clients to keep. I am consistently practicing and perfecting my craft. I maintain my equipment with the most up to date tools and resources available. Each wedding has its own personality, the character of the people, the families, the scene, the details, the laughter, the tears, etc. They are all unique to the couple and each event is an opportunity to really see that beauty and magic, and to help bring that up and to life through the images I capture. Combining a keen understanding of the technical aspects of photography with my artistic view of the world... I love what I do, and love being able to share my talents, skills, experience, and passion with my clients.
What is your photography style? I cannot say I have a set style simply because I like to capture everything! I want to showcases YOU and your vision! There are editing styles and photography styles. You may notice the featured galleries have a couple of editing styles. Some images have a classic traditional, or should we say...timeless appeal to them. They seem true to life with the color, brightness, and natural tones. Other galleries have a pop to them with bright whites and vivid colors. With over 20 years of professional experience, I can create any editing style. This is all part of getting to know you, your style, and telling your story! I want to capture your personalities in ways that let you feel at ease in front of the camera, knowing you will have incredible photos of your day!
Do you travel? Yes!!! I love love love to travel for weddings! I have had the honor to photograph in areas such as Canada, Hawaii, Vegas, DC, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, NY, Virginia, Texas, Ohio, Colorado, and Tennessee. And, it doesn't necessarily have to be for weddings. It could be for your engagement or bridal session, or now you've added a new addition to your family and celebrating their arrival with newborn photos. I love that the couples I work with become lifelong friends and I get to see their family grow.
