A Wedding at Patriot Hills

We first met Cory and Joe at a bridal fair at Round Hill. Months later, Cory called to say that she had fallen in love with our work, and although she had looked at other photographers, we were the ones that stood out in her mind. We were drawn to them, too. We’re so glad we had the opportunity to get to know Cory and Joe, and to spend their wedding day with them.

Cory and her girls were so much fun when we started at her parents’ house with her dressing. Then Cory and I rode in the limo together to go see Joe for the first time in a private location. We laughed during the entire ride. Ulysses and I had already found a rather unconventional location for their session, a place you might expect to be more suitable for the increasingly popular “trash the dress” type of sessions. It was perfectly stylish for Cory & Joe; they completely trusted us, and we are so glad they did! The results from this session are fantastic, and we can’t wait to show them the full gallery!

For now, here is a preview slideshow for all of you to enjoy while Cory and Joe are away in Hawaii on their honeymoon. Just click the “PLAY” button to start the show:

Once they return, their full proof gallery will be released on our main website under “Client Proofs.” If anyone would like to leave comments for the happy couple, or tell us what you think of their photos, we’d love to hear from you by clicking the “Comments” link immediately below.

  • Ulysses - Awwwww, you are just the best, Cory! (and Joe, too!) πŸ˜€

    We felt so welcomed as soon as we walked into your parents’ house. And I have to tell you, we got the BIGGEST kick out of telling you where we were going for your private photo session (don’t tell anyone except your wedding party… it’ll be our little secret!). When we saw the pictures ourselves, we were so excited about making this call, and the fact that you TRUSTED us with it. You guys actually bowled us over with how well you did. And that wild scenery in the background was heart-stopping. We just love them, and so we knew you’d love them too.

    And don’t worry about difficulty choosing. Jenni can be lots of help with that if you need anything at all.

    Joe is so easy-going. And knowing that he simply wanted you to be happy made all the difference in your moods on that beautiful day. The biggest surprise was seeing how much he cut up on the dance floor!!! That was awesome! πŸ™‚

    You’ve got such a great set of family and friends. We could easily tell how endeared you are to them. We couldn’t be happier for the two of you.

    Congrats!!!July 3, 2007 – 9:32 AM

  • Cory - Hey Guys,
    Well all I can say is unbelievable. My breath has been taken away. You two were fantastic which I knew you would be. You made the best day of our lives even better than we had ever imagined. You are not photographers you are artists. I can’t believe how you captured every single detail. You don’t realize how much you had missed durng your Wedding Day until you see the pictures and you guys got it all. We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our Wedding Day fabulous. Also I know our Wedding Party had a great time with you as well. Thank you for making them feel at ease and comfortable too.
    Love Always,
    CoryJuly 3, 2007 – 12:24 AM

  • Linda Ettinger Lieberman - My parents, Cyrus and Shirley Ettinger, are cousins of the bride’s father,
    Lenny Glick. They flew up from Florida to attend the wedding and stayed with us for two weeks. I know that they were so happy to share this joyous occasion with Cory and the rest of her family. You do lovely work and I look forward to peering at the gallery to see if my parents are depicted in any of the shots.July 2, 2007 – 5:25 PM

  • Michelle - Hi Guys! I’m Cory’s sister-in-law, remember me? Crazy maid of honor… Just this little preview has completely taken my breath away. I knew you guys were great but these are truly unbelievable!! And of course having such a beautiful woman and handsome man as subjects enhances your work that much more. We all had such a fun time with the both of you. Your professional yet easy going demeanor really put Cory at ease and helped to make the day such a pleasant and special experience. Thank you so much for capturing the mood and beauty of the entire event. Can’t wait to see the rest! Cory and Joe, love you both, you look AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL and so in love.

  • Ulysses - Yes! Nowwwww, I remember. πŸ˜€

    And I’m sure we have a picture or two from that period of the evening. You’ll definitely have a chance to relive those moments of the two of you having a great time. It’s fantastic for us and for everyone to see individuals enjoying themselves so much. πŸ™‚June 20, 2007 – 12:18 PM

  • nellie - Hi Jenni and Ulysses, I’m sure we’ll have some awesome shots, I was the crazy person in the blue outfit and I have to remind you, that I saw the biggest grin on Ulysses’s face when I tried to get too close to the floor and back-up on my husband, it was the funniest, I really had a blast, guess I showed my roots!!! Hope to see you guys soon again, and all the best to Cory and Joe, just rememeber give it your ‘ALL”
    Allow each other
    Love each other
    Listen to each otherJune 20, 2007 – 11:54 AM

  • Ulysses - Thanks so much for the warm comments, Nellie! They made both Jenni and myself smile immediately. I think you got the perfect impression of us. We really do enjoy — no, we LOVE what we do. And it’s good to see that it shows so easily. πŸ™‚

    You’ll have to remind us of what you were wearing, or what your hair looked like, or some little clue so that we can look for you again in the photos. If you were out there dancing, then I KNOW we’re certain to have caught you on the dance floor having an awesome time. We’ll have all the pictures available when the happy couple returns from the honeymoon, so stay tuned!! Just wait until you see Cory & Joe. They were The Celebrities on their wedding day. πŸ˜€June 20, 2007 – 11:33 AM
