Frequently Asked Questions
How would you describe your photographic style?
My style is soft, romantic and has a luminosity that tends to give my photos a dreamy, watercolour quality. I believe in photographing weddings in a timeless way with a blend of editorial and documentary style, resulting in beautiful classic imagery that will be cherished as heirlooms by you and future generations!
What is your payment schedule?
There is a non-refundable deposit of $1,500, which is due upon signing the contract. The balance is due 4 weeks before your wedding date. I accept payments by email money transfer and PayPal.
Do you work with a second shooter?
Yes, I tend to always work with a second shooter since a Wedding has so many fast-moving fleeting moments (i.e. the first kiss, a loving look from a parent, etc.) and it’s easier to ensure they are all documented when you have at least 2 photographers. The only collection that is photographed solely by Corina is the 6-Hour “Classic Collection”.
How will you and your second photographer be dressed?
Since many of my clients have luxury weddings in very upscale venues and manor houses, I like to also ensure that I’m appropriately dressed in an elegant way. I usually wear black pants, black flat shoes (to make sure I’m comfortable enough to get that perfect shot) and a simple black top/blouse.
Do you edit all the photos?
Yes, I do! I take a lot of pride in the fact that every single image that you receive has been hand-edited individually without batching them all together and mass editing them. Since I am a perfectionist (to a fault), I prefer to edit all my weddings myself and don’t outsource them to photo editing companies.
Would you travel to Paris or France for a wedding or portrait session?
Absolutely! As a self-professed Francophile, I LOVE photographing couples in Paris and France—the light is dreamy and the architecture is the perfect romantic backdrop as the City of Love. My passport is always up to date, and I’d love to chat more about how we can make your dream photos abroad a reality!
How far in advance should we book you?
It’s never too early to book me if you already know your wedding date and have your venue booked. I tend to get booked up quite quickly, usually at least 1-2 years in advance, so to avoid disappointment, I would recommend booking sooner rather than later!
Do you have back-up equipment? What happens if you are sick on my wedding day?
Yes, ensure that I’m always prepared with fully charged multiple Canon cameras, many Canon lenses, charged back-up batteries, 2 flashes and tons of memory cards. I once had an emergency appendectomy 4 days before a wedding and against the doctor’s orders, I ensured I was at my clients’ wedding to photograph the getting ready, formal portraits and family photos, ceremony and some reception details. Once those events were photographed, I left to rest and my second photographer and another associate photographer took over for the rest of the reception (I don’t have an appendix anymore, so no worries there). However, on the off chance that I can’t make it, I will ensure you have 2 very qualified photographers to photograph your wedding day!
Do you have insurance coverage?
Yes, absolutely! I have full public liability and professional indemnity insurance, as you would expect from any professional wedding photographer. If your venue requires proof, I would be happy to email them a copy for their records.
How do we receive our wedding photos?
I believe that beautiful wedding photographs should be presented in a tangible and beautiful way, therefore every couple will receive their high-resolution, edited wedding photos on a custom glass USB in a handcrafted, linen keepsake box with 100”x 4” x 6” artist’s selection fine art prints.
What happens if it rains?
I’m a huge believer in being prepared and recommend to my clients that they purchase some pretty umbrellas (maybe in white or pale blue) and keep the receipt and price tags just in case. That way, if it rains, we are prepared and can still take some fun shots of you and your bridal party outside; if it doesn’t rain, you can always return them. We can also have a back-up plan, such as photos indoors at your church or reception venue or a large, full tree can sometimes work as a great natural umbrella, as well.
