The Cornelio Experience

My images are organic, with a lot of movement and emotion. They are full of light and a bit of romance, and I aim to make all my clients feel and look comfortable in front of the camera. This will make it easier for you to enjoy looking back at your photos, years and decades later, and still love them because they are really honest moments! 

When you work with me, you aren’t just getting a skilled photographer, but a friend who understands the emotions and stress that comes with a wedding. I will help you through timeline planning, tricky family situations, and scouting for picture-perfect photo backgrounds to tell your love story. 

my mission IS to capture the spirit of every person who is in front of my camera. 

"The first step is to say HELLO! Do that by filling out my contact form. Most of my couples book somewhere between 1- 1 1/2 years in advance. Some even 2-3 years. seriously!"

I love to do Zoom or FaceTime calls when we first meet, so that we can determine how to best approach your photography plan. I love coffee so meeting in person over a cup of Joe is something I love to do too, as we work together.

1. Say Hello

2. Engagement Session

Engagement sessions are a great time for us to get to know each other. I love spending as much time as possible getting to know my clients and building a relationship so that the day of your wedding you feel as if we are old friends.

I always ask you to bring two outfits, one dressy and one casual. Then about a week or two after your engagement session you have beautiful photos to use for your save the date! 

3. ask me Anything

Once you book with me I am fully on your wedding team! I will provide a link to my online wedding guide that will help with any questions you may have.

"Also know that you can ask me questions anytime, from planning and timeline to vendor recommendations and insider tips for make your day great. Or I'm also available if you just need an ear to listen to.

I am here for you and just know that I am always on your team!"

4. WEdding day!

"On the wedding day I typically like to arrive 30 or so minutes early." I start out by saying hi to the bride and groom along with bridal party and any family members that are getting ready."

"If it's a new venue I haven't been to, I scope out the best area for photos, the sun location and other details that will help capture the best moments."

5. your photographs

About 2-3 weeks after your ceremony you will receive another link with your wedding photos, organized by category (getting ready, first look, ceremony, reception, etc...).

You'll have the ability to share the link with family and friends, so that they can download, print and order photos as they wish. I don't require watermarks or copyrights. I try to make the process as easy as possible for my couples, their families and friends!

The Process

Before we talk price, I like to meet and get to know you, and hear your vision for your big day. I am in this business because I love photography and equally love connecting with people. Getting to know you as a couple and what's important to you, is where I like to start our conversations. As we get to know each other, I can design my services to best fit your speical day and story.

Say Hello


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.
