Often, the elements of a beautiful, compelling photograph align in the blink of an eye. Corbin Gurkin is not only skilled at capturing that unique moment in time, but also understanding what that moment – and that photograph – mean to a couple in the context of a lifetime.
“I get to know couples over the course of several months, so the relationship definitely becomes a friendship,” she says. “On their wedding day, I consider the spontaneous and candid moments. The end result is a lasting narrative of the wedding, the character of the destination and a strong sense of the couple’s personality.”
Corbin has photographed weddings in places as diverse as California’s wine country, historical Charleston, the streets of Paris and hilltop villages of Tuscany. Her work has been regularly featured online and in print in The Knot, Inside Weddings, Brides and Martha Stewart Weddings.
