VALLEY & PEAK

Our approach to capturing a wedding is relatively simple; tell it the way it happened. We're not in the business of creating moments, we leave that up to you. What we will do is make sure we're there to capture every raw emotion, every hug, every tear - the whole lot. We like to think of ourselves as just another mate at your wedding that happens to have a camera in hand.

COREY WRIGHT

Your wedding will be an incredible day that will probably feel like it takes forever to plan, only to be over in a flash. Beautiful, natural photos will help your memories of the day last well into the future, beyond your own lifetime.

Corey doesn't do cheesy, forced or posed - bleh!  Instead, he captures natural, fun, authentic moments that happen organically because two people in love are celebrating one of the best days of their lives!  People say he's got a knack for seemingly being everywhere at once, so he'll capture moments you probably didn't even see happen.

He's happy to give you some guidance, but all you really need to do is be yourself.  Relax, be in love, and be in the moment.

“HAVING COREY WAS THE BEST DECISION WE COULD HAVE MADE! IT WAS SERIOUSLY LIKE HAVING A FRIEND THERE - A FRIEND WHO JUST HAPPENS TO BE AN AWESOME PHOTOGRAPHER!”

This might be the first, and maybe the last time that you hire or commission an artist of some kind. So it’s really important to me that I let you know that I came second in my grade two colouring competition somewhere back in that formative decade that was the 1990’s. I was kinda a big deal back then before hitting double-digits, but I’ve since left the public eye and now spend my years chasing the monumentally important small-stuff that colours our strange little human world: love, connection, and ritual, in all it’s forms, all over the globe.

ONE SPOON TWO SPOON

I’m utterly addicted to the romance and infinite hope of a wedding. 

What I love about being invited to photograph a wedding, is being able to observe the natural and love-filled interactions between two lovers, to see what makes their love different, special and unique. I’ve been fortunate enough to stumble my way into a profession where I get to witness these beautiful fleeting moments. I want to take a step back and let you do your thing. I want to move in close and catch those secret smiles, the lingering eye contact. I want to grab that mood of just married excitement and make it a still. But I also want us to have a damn good time, full of beaming smiles and big deep belly laughs. Preferably with some natural light.
