My Name Is Korbyn.

Korbyn Skye Newsom, in full. (Skye is my middle name- thus, Korbyn Skye Photography!) and here is a little about me and why I love taking photos.

I have been pursuing photography for almost two years now. It all started when I was young! I always had an artistic side and I dabbled around in painting, drawing, arts + crafts (you could always find me at arts + crafts at any given function as a kid) It wasn't until I was about 18 that my interest in photography peaked. My initial thought was "Everyone and their dog is a photographer right now- I don't want to do what they are doing and be a "follower". (I know... super hipster, right?) Well, then I thought... I'm not going to limit myself because of what others are doing. So, I took the plunge! Little did I know I would fall in love with the thrill and excitement of capturing real life moments. Seriously- how cool is it that I can take a rather fleeting moment and freeze it forever. Not only that, but I have complete control over what that photo looks like artistically? It's like painting and drawing and experiencing other people and moments all at the same time! I'm a bit of an extravert if you can't tell... so that feeling blew my mind! The feeling of experiencing and sharing my art with others and they actually like it! Or better yet- love it! To me, there is just no greater feeling. 

 

A little more about me|

Why did i choose weddings + couples?

It's easy... I love, LOVE! When you think of the times in your life that you felt the most alive//passionate//free//happy//vulnerable//careless//and basically like a kid on Christmas morning, it's most likely you felt this way because of LOVE. The power that love has just sweeps me off my feet and makes me daydream of all the most cheesy and romantic rom-com you can think of! (Might also be where my obsession with Ireland comes from- we will get to that later...) So, I would absolutely love to be the third wheel that captures YOUR love story so other people can gush over how cute you are!
