  • We could not thank Cornelia enough for the incredible work she did for our wedding. She is simply an amazing photographer and businesswoman! First of all, her photography skills are just impeccable. She has that “eye” for capturing truly incredible photos. She is also vocal about how to get the pictures that are so Instagram worthy. She is incredibly helpful in coaching couples on what to do to get those money shots! Her editing style is beautiful as well. All of the images that she produces are fairytale-esque, dreamy, and romantic. Photography really matters to me and if you look at her work she is consistent in her quality, every single photo is a work of art. After looking at SO many photographers her pictures stuck out to me because of this, you simply will not find and unpolished photo by her. She is wonderful on the business side of things as well! Her website is user friendly, getting in contact with her is easy, and when it comes to planning she has thought of everyth... Read more

  • Words cannot express how amazing Cornelia is and how highly we recommend her!!!! My husband and I are from Chicago and we got married down in Sarasota in Florida in February. I knew absolutely nothing about Florida wedding vendors and stumbled upon Cornelia's Instagram page and immediately loved her overall look. After talking to her and seeing more of her work, I was sold. I booked her before any other vendor because I knew I just had to have her. Throughout the whole wedding process, Cornelia was so friendly and kind. She would respond immediately and I never felt like I was bugging her. She helped answer any question I had, even if it didn't pertain to photos. She was so on-top of the details leading up to our big day, so when our wedding day came, I had 0 worries that she would photograph what we wanted. I also quickly realized Cornelia is very well-known and respected throughout Sarasota/Tampa area as literally every other vendor I booked not only knew her but all had wonderful th... Read more

  • We planned our wedding in about 3 months. I had been "stalking" Cornelia's Instagram for months before we even planned anything, and as soon as we nailed down a date, I reached out to her in the off chance that she was available on our date for this year. SHE WAS! From the beginning of this whole process, Cornelia was so punctual with all her responses. I think she answered any and all questions I had within a day at most, usually it was just a few hours. Our initial consultation was at a coffee shop, where we talked for hours! Not only was she so helpful and informative, but she was also so easy to talk to! We had our complimentary engagement session and she made us feel so at ease. My husband usually gives me 1-2 pictures at most, and Cornelia was able to get him to take pictures for an hour with no complaints! A true miracle worker. On our wedding day, Cornelia was prompt and professional. She was natural during the ceremony- you couldn't even tell she was there! Again, she got my h... Read more

  • If you're reading this, stop everything and HIRE CORNELIA! She is so professional, quick to respond, and goes above and beyond for her clients! Her work speaks for itself but it's always great to know you'll be working with a truly kind person. Cornelia's attention to detail goes unmatched. On our wedding day, she was always adjusting my hair, my dress, and helping us pose. She got all of our best angles. Cornelia provided us with sneak peeks shortly after the wedding and we were blown away! What is even more impressive is we thought we'd have to wait a couple of months to get our whole album but Cornelia delivered us over 1100 photos (how will we EVER pick favorites?!) in under 4 weeks! Looking though our wedding photos always brings a tear to our eyes. She captured the best version of us and we will cherish her work for the rest of our lives. Thank you Cornelia!

  • Photography was the most important decision to us in wedding planning. These are the photos we will show our grandchildren one day and I wanted them to be timeless, classic, and romantic. I also knew I would be spending my entire wedding day with whoever we chose, so I had to enjoy their company as well. Cornelia delivered on all accounts. Every picture we received from her was so gorgeous, timeless, and special. Working with her for our engagement photos and on our wedding day was seamless, easy, and fun. Cornelia is a true professional, everything she captures is truly magic. Friends and family who were unable to attend our downsized event experienced it through her lens, making these photos more significant to us than ever before. We are so thankful we chose to book with her. There are so many wonderful photographers but Cornelia really made us feel comfortable and able to relax and enjoy our day in addition to providing us timeless family heirloom quality photos. Forever grateful a... Read more

  • I knew right from our engagement session that Cornelia was the right choice for our wedding. She is unbelievably organized, professional, and attentive. She makes you feel so comfortable on your day and completely stress free. Our wedding was last week and she already sent a preview of our photos (so fast!!). I HIGHLY recommend Cornelia if you want incredible photos & memories that’ll last a life time.

  • My husband and I just got married on 8/01/20 in Sarasota Florida! We were originally suppose to get married in TN but due to covid we had to basically replan our entire wedding again! I had to start from scratch and planned it all within 3 months! Cornelia was quick to respond, supportive, and very thorough. She helped me put together a list of every photo I wanted and the pictures came out amazing! I can’t thank her enough! Before we booked Cornelia I asked her about her policy with covid and if we had to reschedule, what that would look like, she was completely fair and flexible! Cornelia and Amy did and amazing job and my pictures were absolutely gorgeous! These poor girls worked their butts off at my wedding considering it was Florida in the dead heat of summer! They were extremely dedicated and got all the photos I wanted! I got all my photos already and my wedding album too! I can’t believe how quick she was considering my other friends who just got married this year all wait... Read more

  • I would highly recommend that every couple consider Cornelia when choosing their photographer. My husband and I were blown away with the level of service that was provided to us throughout the entire process. Cornelia did our engagement shoot as well as our wedding and we are SO IN LOVE with the photos. Cornelia is incredibly organized and gave me a schedule 6 months in advance when I asked (type A people - she's your girl!). She makes the shoots very comfortable and natural and told us just what to do. Cornelia was incredibly responsive and made herself available to us. We were truly blown away with her work as well as her in general. She is very personable, professional and pretty much awesome. Would 10/10 recommend and we know who we're calling the next time we need a photographer! Thank you so much!!!!!

Thank you again for letting me be part of your big day and having me capture this special day for you!! I'm looking forward to future shoots together! :) Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to you and your family! :)

  • Cornelia is beyond talented in creating the most breathtaking images that you will treasure for a lifetime. Her personality, professionalism and eye for detail are exceptional. We hired her to take photos in celebration of our 30th wedding anniversary while in Florida. Cornelia did an amazing job capturing the love my husband and I both share. Best experience ever working with this beautiful lady! We highly recommend Cornelia Zaiss Photography!

  • I can't speak highly enough about Cornelia. Talk about an outstanding partner to have on your side through wedding planning stress. She is so great and passionate about what she does. Her work is absolutely stunning and she is truly the best in the business. I couldn't ask for a better photographer and would recommend her to absolutely anyone!

  • I could not have asked for a better wedding photographer. Cornelia was fun to work with and she had the best ideas that made every photo so special. Her attention to detail is impeccable. If I had one little hair out of place, she would stop and fix me to make sure I looked 100% perfect before she took a photo. She also got the photos back to us extremely fast (within a month) and sent us sneak peaks 2 days later!! Now that's top of the line service!

  • Cornelia is absolutely amazing! Hiring her for our wedding was the best decision we made. She was so easy to work with and made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. We used Cornelia for our engagement photos in Florida and we loved her work so much, we hired her for our destination wedding in Amalfi Italy as well. Her work is quality and she has an eye for knowing what scenery and lighting works best. She was able to take photos with us in many different locations, making sure to capture the beauty of our wedding and Italy itself. We cannot recommend her enough. Thank you for everything Cornelia!

  • Cornelia was not only so sweet and sooo easy to work with, her photos are the best I've seen in the industry. My expectations were already high and she far surpassed them. She really captured the true emotion and beauty of the day I will cherish these photos forever. In my opinion I got far more than I paid for and would hire her and recommend her to everyone I meet. Check out her instagram, her work speaks for itself. She has one of those infectious bubbly personalities that you just feel so comfortable to be around as if you were family. Love her and love my photos.

  • My husband and I were planning a wedding from out of town and got connected with Cornelia. We are SO happy that we hired her to photograph our special day. Cornelia was super responsive to emails, which was so helpful planning it from the distance. Cornelia helped coordinate a realistic timeline. Most importantly, Cornelia actually stuck with the timeline. We had a huge bridal party, with some outgoing personalities. Cornelia was able to direct and keep everyone in line in order to get some great shots. Besides Cornelia's amazing organization, she captured the MOST beautiful pictures throughout our day!! I am bias, but they are absolutely stunning. Its going to be so hard to pick which ones we want in our album. Thank you Cornelia for capturing our wedding with photos that we will have forever! If you are looking for a talented photographer in Sarasota, Cornelia is your girl!

  • Cornelia is amazing!!! She has exceeded all my expectations for all of the shoots I’ve done with her (yes, that’s multiple!)! Being in front of the camera is not always the easiest for me, but we had so much fun and felt incredibly comfortable with her guidance! Not to mention our photos are so perfect!!! You won’t regret going with her!!
