Corey Balazowich

I am 35 years young and have been photographing the world since I could figure out how to push the button. I grew up as a Daddy's Little Girl and shared his love for photography, often taking his Canon FT and capturing the world as I saw it with that camera (not that it always turned out mind you!). As I grew up my love for photography never diminished and eventually after my Father's death I decided to try my hand at pursing this as a career and thus far it has been a productive one!

I have been photographing weddings for over 6 years. I aim to capture and preserve the laughter, tears and joy, all of the emotions that come together in a magical bow on your wedding day, forever. I like to call my style photojournalistic with a dash of Mom. I call it with "a dash of Mom" because if you don't take the time to have the standard posed images with your families I promise you, Mom will be upset! On average, I shoot about 25 weddings per year. I enjoy destination weddings, especially since I had one myself. Travel photography comes second to weddings in my heart. I have also been published in the New York Times, Everywhere Magazine, CNN, The Weather Channel, The Knot: Ohio, Carpenter Magazine, Style Me Pretty, Wedding Chicks and Rangefinder.

    WHERE DO WE BEGIN??.... You not only provided amazing services with the help of your husband, but you two captured EVERY wonderful moment to make sure our wedding day would be unforgettable and guaranteed that we would have memories which we can share with people we meet for the rest of our lives. From our engagement pictures where we required a little bit of coaching, to our rehearsal dinner fun at the bowling alley all the way to the beginning moments of the rest of our lives together, you captured the moments that made that day special for both of us. We rave about you to everyone we meet and are most excited to start our family just so you can do maternity and family pictures for us!!! You are going to be the gal we call to capture all the important moments for the rest of our in a way, I guess we married you and your services on our wedding day too! THANKS again and again for everything Corey, and husband! You are amazing!!!!

    There is more that I want to say than I’ll have time to right now. We made an entire event of looking at the pictures last night, cracked a couple of trappist beers, and we didn’t even get through all of them. All I kept wanting to say was “THIS is why we hired Corey.” Bethany is thrilled and showering me with credit for finding you. There were countless great ones, and a number of them that totally blew us away. That’s why we couldn’t get through them. We just had to stop and stare for a while. We could spend weeks, and probably will. So many things “went wrong” that night. The rain, mud, power shorting out... we almost didn’t have a way to even play the music for the weekend, but someone problem-shot that one on Friday for us too. There were a lot of coincidences and collaborative efforts that saved us from ever getting too stressed out. And anyway, it wouldn’t be our style if things went flawlessly. Every dramatic or climactic moment in our relationship’s history has had some awkward or funny thing happen to mess it all up. The fates never let us take ourselves too seriously. That was why, on Sept. 26 2008, I decided to propose while we were getting dumped on in the middle of a 20-mile day on the Appalachian Trial. It was not a scenic spot or at a break in the weather. We were exhausted and soaked. But we had a bounce to our step for the rest of the day after that. All the crazy details aside, we had as much fun as I can ever remember having, and you captured that. Thank you for giving us the ability to relive it with these beautiful pictures.

    I just wanted to write and thank you soooooo much for your amazing work on our wedding! We absolutely could not be happier with how they turned out and we are amazed at how quickly you had the gallery up. It was so exciting and fun to look through all the galleries while we were still on our honeymoon. My parents are absolutely thrilled at the gorgeous family portraits, and the beautiful candid shots of so many different people as well. I seriously think you somehow managed to capture every moment and detail of the entire day--I cannot WAIT to write my Weddingbee recaps. Speaking of which, I have gotten comments even just from my post today asking about you and your services, so that's great too! So, thank you again, we are just so happy with our photos. I am so looking forward to making some albums and prints for my family this Christmas. xoxoxo,

    I finally have a minute to truely thank you for everything! The pictures are absolutly wonderful! I am very very happy with them :) The only thing that could have made them better is a little more sunshine! My advice to future brides is to do a sneak peek. We would have had a lot more time! Thanks for everything Corey! Especially getting rained on! Thank you!!! ,
