Seattle Wedding Photography by Cory Parris

Hey there! I’m Cory and I am a photogeek that does Seattle wedding photography. I call my style “Creating Emotional Photostories”.

I really appreciate you making it to the bottom of the page. This is the part where I will talk about myself. I am a rather self-deprecating person, but I’m going to shake that off and tell you and the rest of the world about how great I am at Seattle wedding photography.

I started my path to professional photography in high school at the age of 15. I was in the yearbook class and had just picked up a camera for the first time. At that moment I remember thinking that this is what I wanted to do with my life. I then majored in journalism and photojournalism including an internship at a daily newspaper. Of course, like almost all college students, I then changed my mind about what I wanted to do. I didn’t want to be in journalism quite often taking photographs of people on their worst days. A little while later I met my soon-to be wife and we started this business on the first day of January 1994. In the over 20 years since, I have been very fortunate to meet some amazing people and have some fantastic experiences.

My style is largely shaped by my photojournalism experience. However, most people think of photojournalists as only doing live news and sports. A great deal of the time, being a photojournalist also means that you are assigned get portraits of a scientist, a still life for a feature article, illustrating a sunny day in the city, or any of the thousands of other things the paper might be writing about that day. So to be a good photojournalist, you have to be good at a little bit of everything as a photographer.

Wedding photography is very similar that way. On a single day doing Seattle wedding photography, I am the landscape, architectural, still life, and portrait photographer. Most importantly, though, I am the documentary photographer there to capture the way you really feel and the way your family and friends feel on the day of your wedding. Put that all together, and I consider wedding photography to be the most demanding type. In one day, I get to do all kinds of photography, and do them all well and right the first time.

I also love to do other types of photography work. I love to create images of people. I have a great job!
