Seattle & Palm SPrings wedding photographer

Miguel Cornelio

For as long as I can remember, I have had a passion for photography. I first started photography while in high school taking a photography class and working for our school yearbook.

I later photographed my first wedding and that is where I learned to capture all the love, joy and happinesses of the day and I knew immediately that is what made my heart full!

Your experienced wedding photographer

Hi, I'm Miguel


n an era where there are so many wonderful photographers to choose from, I am honored to work with so many amazing clients, and I sincerely thank you for your interest in my work and services. 


Say Hello

Even though I was accepted to Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, CA. I wasn't able to attend because of the cost of tuition. I continued my education at Spokane Falls Community College and then Central Washington University (CWU). At CWU I received my bachelors degree in interdisciplinary studies with a minor in psychology. Honestly, I believe my psychology minor is what helps me the most with photography, allowing me to understand the needs of my clients, their personalities and how to best capture their special day.

My background story

was born in Mexico and moved to Washington with my family when I was nine years old. I love this country and the many opportunities I’ve been given throughout my life and continue to receive to this day. 


A Look into my


1 / 2

When I am not photographing clients, I am most likely chasing the sun to our second home in Palm Springs. I love to run, workout, ride bikes and paddle board. I try to stay as active as possible and enjoy the beautiful outdoors.

But in all honesty my very favorite thing to do is stay home with my husband and our two pugs Bella & Frank. "I love cuddling those two!"

My Favorite Things

I’ve been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to travel to many places not just for my work but to savor the beauty around us!

Travel makes you more open-minded and knowledgeable of other people’s experiences. I have been to more than 15 countries and have had the opportunity of experiencing many cultures and communities.

Exploring new places


Miguel photographed my wedding, which was featured in Seattle Bride magazine as well as Style Me Pretty. Ever since, I have invested in having Miguel photograph the major events of me and my family's life -- our annual Christmas cards, my maternity shoot, our newborn announcements, our first family photos as a family of 3, my daughter's 1st birthday cake smash.. everything. I can't recommend more highly. Thank you, Miguel!

Miguel- while obviously an insanely talented photographer - also has to be one of the sweetest most genuine, supportive and wholesome individuals in the industry. If you are looking for an incredible soul and a beyond-talented photographer for your wedding or any other occasion for that matter, you've found the best. Lock. Him. Down. 6/5 stars.

Miguel is exceptionally talented and all of our friends and family commented on how wonderful the photos turned out, and how friendly and nice he is. In addition, he gave us a sneak peek of a few of our photos the very next day and got all the rest of them done within a few weeks (we were barely even back from our honeymoon!). In short: go with Miguel and Momentous Images!

Miguel is truly one of a kind. He has a special and rare gift of making everyone he works with feel comfortable. He is patient, creative, kind, funny, warm-hearted, dedicated...the list goes on. I have and will continue to recommend Miguel! I cannot appreciate and thank Miguel enough for so beautifully capturing so many special moments in my life.  

I cannot express my love and praise for Miguel and his photography enough. Miguel did our engagement and wedding pictures. He has been so friendly and professional the whole time. I would recommend Miguel to anyone and I've already been telling all of my friends!

Miguel went above and beyond to make sure we had the perfect day! He was able to capture beautiful images while insuring we enjoyed our entire day. His images are perfectly captured and have this beautiful and natural glow to them. He is very flexible, responsive, and easy to work with! I feel so luck to have found him not only for the obvious reason but because I feel like he is now one of my good friends. 

Miguel is a beautiful person who creates and captures beautiful moments. From our initial communication to the day of the shoot, everything was perfect. He’s flexible, considerate, professional, extremely thoughtful and kind, and our photos are just freaking gorgeous! I can’t say enough great things about him. My fiancé and I had so much fun shooting with Miguel. Just book him; you’ll be glad you did!!

Miguel is incredible. He's professional, friendly, caring, and lovely while also having a keen eye. We hired a photographer, but we gained a friend; I know that sounds beyond cheesy, but he seriously is a light in this world. I knew wedding day would be busy, but looking back it was an absolute blur. To have a trusting, reliable photographer (+ assistant) working with us on that day was KEY.

My husband and I can't praise Miguel enough: he's not only extremely talented in his art, he's also such a wonderful person and a pleasure to work with. He listens, is curious, adapts well, is extremely friendly and fun, makes himself available to all his clients and just makes the entire process (engagement photos & wedding photos) clear, simple and extremely enjoyable. We recommend him 100% for weddings and any other events.



You Deserve the best
