About

Your wedding day begins a new, exciting chapter in your life, one filled with joy and adventure--and it is an honor to capture the first moments of your new journey together.  Generations will look back on the timeless images and films that we capture to remember the beautiful love that emanated from the two of you, and the radiance of friends and family as they witnessed every moment.

My name is Cory, and I lead a team of unique, creative and experienced photographers and cinematographers with diverse backgrounds.  Both my team and I have a shared interest-We've always had a passion for the arts.

Along the way, all of us discovered something in common;

I live in Richmond, Virginia with my lovely wife Erin and our 3 pups, Sully, Bear and Smokey. I love a good Irish whisky and take every chance I can to learn something  new. I have been shooting weddings since 2006, have over 250 weddings under my belt (over 90 of those South Asian/Indian) and have been a full-time photographer | cinematographer since 2012. I go out of my way to make sure every client is treated like family.

I created Afterglow Creative over 15 years ago as a labor of love that grew into something much more than I ever could have imagined.  Now we are a local full-service photography and cinematography company, complete with a team of high-class and high-quality creatives.  My team and I am so thrilled that you are considering Afterglow Creative to capture your love story. We will cherish your memories as if they were our own.

LOVED THEM. I told everyone, the photographer/videographer was the most important vendor for me during my wedding weekend. I am so glad I chose Afterglow. I loved that they had so much experience with Indian/South Asian weddings. They knew the significance and meaning of all the events and ceremonies, so they knew exactly which moments were most important to capture. In addition to being knowledgeable, they were also so fun and easy to work with!

Cory's team were the perfect people to work with throughout our engagement and wedding weekend. They made our time stress-free, and kept the focus on exactly what we wanted- capturing the love between and surrounding us. We cherish our pictures and wedding film so much! Thank you Afterglow Creative!

My husband and I are so glad Cory was our wedding photographer! He was amazing from the first time I reached out and even now after we've received our photos. A friend recommended him after her wedding and I loved the style of his work. Each one is a work of art and they aren't like everyone else's standard wedding photos!
