Desert Dweller

If you're looking for another vendor that ends up feeling like a stranger on your wedding day, I’m not your girl. And that’s okay.

BUT if you're looking for a photographer-turned-friend who is just as invested in your wedding day as you are, well then I might just be your newest third wheel. From the moment you book with me, I am there every step of the way throughout the planning process (and even after). 

Need trusted vendor recommendations? I gotchu. Not sure how to make a wedding timeline? I’m your gal! Feeling a little overwhelmed about how you’re going to pull this whole thing off? That’s what I’m here for.

When I say I am here every step of the way, I mean it. I have been photographing weddings for almost seven years now and have learned a thing or two about the process.

Are you as excited as I am?!?

My Approach

I am fully invested in serving my couples from the moment you inquire with me, not just on your wedding day. I pride myself on getting to know my couples so that I can help bring your wedding vision to life. I consider myself more than just a vendor to my couples. I am here for every step of the planning process, answering questions, providing my expert advice, and preserving memories that you will truly cherish for a lifetime.


Post-processing is the most time intensive part of my service to you. I hand select and edit each image to meet my artistic standard. This includes but is not limited to color correction, light retouching, cropping, eliminating excess noise, optimizing contrast, vibrancy, etc. Finally, I create an online gallery that seamlessly tells the story of your wedding day, available for download for you, family, and friends.


Engagement sessions are delivered within 2 weeks after the shoot date. Wedding galleries are delivered within 3-4 weeks of the wedding date, and a ‘sneak peak’ will be delivered to you 24 hours after you marry the love of your life! However, times may vary based on seasons – my busiest months being March, April, September, October, and November!


Heck yes! I am so grateful photography has taken me to some of the most incredible destinations such as, The Virgin Islands, Wyoming, San Diego, The Grand Canyon, and Hawaii (to name a few), that hold a special place in my heart. Travel fees may apply and vary based on location - but be sure to check out my bucket list destinations for special rates and discounts!


I mean it when I say literally everyone asks me this! For most people getting in-front of a camera, that is not an iPhone, is not an everyday thing, so I don’t expect you to come out and be like America’s next top model. And honestly that is not what I want. I want these photos are an authentic reflection of you and your story. I will provide you with prompts that provide movement and genuine smiles to help you feel comfortable. Have some dream poses in mind? Feel free to share your pinterest board with me!


Yes! I have extensive experience shooting in all types of lighting situations. Experience in this area is extremely important for weddings because the lighting can often times change quickly and it is important to be able to anticipate the situation vs reacting to the change in lighting. This way, I dont skip a beat on your wedding day!


I do not put a limit on how many photos you will receive. You can typically expect 75 images per hour of coverage. I love to provide a variety of images that are true to tone and color as well as black and white images. 

You will receive your images within 2-4 weeks depending on the event. 

These images will be shared via an online private gallery for you to share with family, friends, and social media. It’s not official until it's facebook official, ammiright? :)

There will not be any watermarks on your images and all of your images will be available to download in high resolution. You will receive a separate online gallery for your engagement session and your wedding day! Each gallery is separated into events such as "Getting Ready," "First Look," "Ceremony," and so on. This allows you to seamlessly view your wedding day in a way that tells a story.

THIS GALLERY IS YOURS, so please feel free to share but also make sure to download and backup to a physical hard drive as well as a cloud storage for safekeeping.


Why invest so much into photography for your photos to only live on your desktop? These are your memories, and your memories are meant to be revisited, felt. Don’t let them die on a computer screen.

Kyle and I have always said that we would grab Leo, Layla, and our wedding album if our house was on fire! Could we always build another wedding album if something happened to this book? Yes. However, there is something special about creating your first heirloom. We made our wedding album right after we were married and we treasure it! Having digital images is wonderful, but having a printed keepsake that tells a visual story of our wedding day is priceless!


I SURE DO! This is a service I provide to all of my couples. I want to help make sure that you are getting the wedding day images you have always dreamed of, and your timeline plays a HUGE role in that. How do you get what you ultimately desire? What are the best practices for the timeline of the day? How do you get the most out of your photography investment? What are common mistakes to avoid? There is so much to consider and I'm here to help you make the best decisions for your day!


ABSOLUTELY, YES! An engagement session is included in all 6, 8, and 10 hour wedding collections. I include an engagement session as part of the experience because engagement sessions add so much to the story of who you are as a couple right now, and they're an ideal way to become more comfortable in front of my lens before your wedding day. Your engagement session can be as simple as a stroll through your favorite park, a desert sunset shoot, or even a romantic return to where he proposed- anything you can imagine to share the imagery of your personal love story.

Formal or informal, images from your engagement session are a beautiful addition to your wedding experience, and also make a wonderful signing book. They help craft the whole story, and can even be used for save-the-date cards, invitations, or thank you cards.

Next Steps....

I am absolutely blown away by the images from our wedding day and the service Korie provided to us. Not only did she help us with our wedding day timeline, but she answered questions we didn't even know we had! Korie’s attention to detail and love for her job was portrayed in every single image of our wedding gallery. She was truly one of the best investments we made on our wedding day!

She made us feel at ease...

From day one, she was so easy to work with, Kind, and personable. She made us feel comfortable and not awkward at all. I was nervous about planning my wedding because I was absolutely clueless on how things went but Korie knew exactly what to do. We loved how our photos turned out and got them back in a VERY timely manner, which was a huge bonus!

She allowed me to fully be present in the moment...

She was such a joy at our wedding and all events leading up to our big day. She was organized and professional but you could tell she genuinely wanted to be a part of telling our story. When we got our pictures back we couldn’t help but cry, they captured the emotion of the day perfectly. Her laid back and warm personality made both me and David comfortable and that meant we could just be ourselves.

Korie was phenomenal!

Korie was the best Photographer I could have asked to shoot my wedding! She was an absolute angel the entire day and offered help beyond what we hired her for. She took all the photos I wanted and more. My husband hates taking photos because they take so long but she made it feel so fun, effortless, and in a timely manner. I will FOREVER recommend Korie!!

I love every single image!

Korie is a wonderful photographer. She is open to exploring new places, and makes the experience exciting and fun. Her style of photography is modern and moody, making her photos beautiful and unique. I would call Korie to photograph any occasion without hesitation!

She really takes the time to get to know you...

She was so helpful from the time we found her to delivering our wedding images. Korie invested so much time in getting to know us that taking photos with her felt effortless. We are beyond excited to relive the magic of our day over and over again through the photos. We truly feel blessed to have worked with Korie!

You can feel the passion she has for her work.
