Corbin Gurkin Photography

February 14, 2012

Hello everyone, how are you? I took Monday off from blogging to catch up on administrative tasks (oh so fun! not!) but the good news is that I’m on top of things in the office and feel loads better and more inspired to write again! I find writer’s block strikes when I have mountains of emails to reply to, tax stuff to sort out, expense reports to complete and calls to make – then it’s impossible to write with a mind heavy with tasks. I feel free again with my To Do lists in good form so let’s kick off the week by enjoying some beautiful photography by Corbin Gurkin, a super amazing wedding photographer based in Charleston, South Carolina.

I thought since weddings are not the focus of this blog that I’d highlight more of her lifestyle shots – particularly those that focus on texture, detail and color because in decorating, all three are key elements in making a space feel cozy and special.

What I love about Corbin’s work, in addition to her fantastic attention to detail, is how she works with light and her notice and capture of moments that some would have overlooked otherwise. I also appreciate how diverse her portfolio is – it’s a lot of work to be a destination wedding photographer! She is available for hire to shoot all over the world and she definitely has shot everywhere from Tuscany to Paris, London, California and Hawaii.

With work regularly praised by top wedding blogs and featured in top publications like Martha Stewart Weddings, The Knot, and Brides magazine, it’s no wonder why she is a sought-after photographer. To top it off, she was named one of the top twenty destination wedding photographers for 2011 by Destination Weddings & Honeymoons magazine. You can learn more about this talented lady here. Wonderful work, Corbin! Your work really kick- started a new week for me!

    We adore Corbin… wedding photography has been getting more and more faded into a honey coloured, sunlight flared space, which is lovely… but Corbin continues to inspire and infuse with generous colour and knows how to use it!

    What lovely photos! Such gorgeous and pure colors. The last one begs to become an art print on a textured canvas, gracing the walls of a lovely home.
