Everything you ever wanted to ask me about your wedding day.

Nearly every question you've ever googled about a photographer; answered. Thought provoking questions about your big day, asked by, answered by April Corey!


  1. Is my wedding date available? Shoot me an email to find out if your date is available!

  2. Will you be the one shooting my wedding? If not, can I meet the photographer who will be on-site? It will be me. I don’t subcontract my weddings and I prefer to use the same dedicated shooter with every wedding if possible. I will meet you long before your big day. I also try to bring Amy with me so you can meet her too!

  3. How many other weddings will you photograph that weekend? I don’t book more than 2 weddings a month. I do this to balance my family time as well as my client work-load. This may change in the future, but for now it’s what I’m comfortable with.

  4. Will you have any assistants with you on our wedding day? Usually my second shooter, Amy. Occasionally for larger weddings I may also bring an assistant to help carry gear and set-up shots.

Background Check

  1. How long have you been shooting weddings? I shot my first wedding in 2010, although I did not advertise it until 2017 and at that time I started to consistently book them.

  2. How many weddings have you photographed? 30, including 5 out-of-state weddings.

  3. Do you often shoot weddings that have a similar size and style to the one we are planning? I’ve photographed weddings with just 3 people, and upwards of nearly 200 and everything in-between.

  4. Can we see the full galleries of a few of your recent weddings? Yes, however I do not host full galleries online as my images are delivered via USB, but I’m happy to show you them if you would like to schedule an appointment to do so.

  5. Have you ever shot a wedding at our ceremony and reception venues? If not, do you plan to check the venues out in advance? I typically try to research every venue I shoot. If it’s local and I haven’t shot there, I’ll plan a visit. I’d love to walk your venue with you as it can only help me do my job better.

  6. Have you ever worked with our planner? Videographer? Florist? DJ? Those are all tough questions, but I’m pretty transparent, so I’ll be happy to answer them all! As a raging extrovert, I have yet to meet a professional in the industry that I haven’t liked. I try introduce myself to the team before your wedding so we’re all on the same page for you. If its not someone I've worked with, I'm not ashamed to say so!


  1. How would you describe your photography style? What would you compare your work to? I describe my work as timeless, with an affinity for vibrancy. I love trends in photography like the next person, but I tend to try to shoot your images to be classic and clean so that they stand the test of time. As far as comparing myself to others, it’s just not something I do. I do what I love and that’s create images that my clients can cherish. I've never been one to stop and compare myself to others. Life's too short for that!

  2. How would you describe your working style? Do you prefer to blend into the background to capture candid moments, or do you like to be more visible and take charge to choreograph images? I am a bit of both. When I am preparing you for your getting ready photos, I’ll be careful as to what gets placed in the room. I want it to be clean and clutter free so that your images are focused on you, not the big gulp you grabbed from 7-11 on the way to the bridal suit. However, when I shoot your ceremony, I’m careful and try to avoid stepping in the view of the guests, while also doing my job. I like to blend in and be as quiet as possible. When it comes to the reception, I’ll help choreograph your formal images and cake cutting. We may do some posing for a bouquet toss, and I may even give you some pointers on where to look at the cameras or where to stand when you cut your cake. Everything else I’m just simply capturing. I think it’s hard for couples to know what to expect so I help as much as possible, without being controlling or overbearing. My goal is for you to spend AS MUCH time as you can with your family and friends, not being bossed around by me.

  3. Do you shoot digitally? With film? Or both? As much as I would have loved to have learned to shoot film, I’m strictly a digital shooter. I shoot with two Canon Mirrorless cameras (R5 and R), but also have 2 additional full-frame DSLR cameras that will be with me, just in case! I have off camera flash systems and more SD cards than any person should humanly be allowed to have. I’ll bring my tried-and-true lenses to shoot your day, including 35mm, 50mm, 70-200mm, 24-70mm, 100mm.
