I am beyond grateful to have had Cory Lee Photography be a part of our special day. Cory and his wife make you feel so comfortable and truly captured every moment of our day. Everyone was saying how great the photographer was and how he went above and beyond to capture the littlest detail of our wedding. I can not wait to see all of the pictures!! I highly recommend Cory for all of your special moments and will definitely be using their services again!! Thank you!!!

Cory is amazingly talented! Quick to respond, clear in his pre-planning, great with his execution. Let's not forget: A quick preview turnaround! This is key for anyone looking for a GREAT photographer. As a wedding professional in the Charleston area, I can tell you that you're in great hands with Cory + Hillary! We even pulled them in last-minute for a sunset, Plantation proposal (with less than 48 hrs. to plan all details) and they absolutely killed it. This duo is not one you want to skip over... I promise!

I've done plenty of events with CLP. they are always fun to work with. As a wedding DJ I find it hard sometimes to connect with the photographer to coordinate anticipated great shots based off of my music. First time I met Cory I told him I am not like other wedding DJs that's why people hire me. I told him I will play certain songs that will get people to do different movements so I will notify you on each songs. Man it was like we worked together a hundred times, it was seamless and great symmetry. the first event went extremely well. After I saw his photos a few weeks later I was blown away, this dude has talent. Heck he even made me look good. Since then we have worked together on several other events and I have recommended him to many, even put him on my preferred vendor list of my webpage. Just can't go wrong with this guy. the pictures are elegant, classy, tasteful & fun. snag him up for your date fast.

Cory Lee photography is the best in Charleston. We shopped for a while for photographers for our wedding. None of them really gave us a great feeling, until we met Cory and Hillary. They were absolutely amazing to work with. The value is unbeatable- they are very reasonably priced! Our engagement photos turned out amazing. Leading up to our wedding, they have a very detailed website to help expedite all pictures on the big day. They were extremely professional, responsive, and FUN to work with on our wedding day. We just got our pictures, and are blown away with the quality. There are definitely tons of shots we will cherish forever! Definitely recommend!

What past clients have to say


“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”

— Aaron Siskind
