Photojournalism believes that the best moments are 
honest ones.


Anyhow, the older I get, the less impressed I become with originality. These days, I’m far more moved by authenticity. Attempts at originality can often feel forced and precious, but authenticity has quiet resonance that never fails to stir me. 

Elizabeth Gilbert

Somewhere we know that without silence, words lose their meaning.
Without listening, speaking no longer heals.
Without distance, closeness cannot cure.

Paige and Sam were married at El Chorro in Paradise Valley, AZ. Sam is an Englishman with his family traveling in from Cambridge for the ceremony. 
The two fell in love with Arizona, where Paige is from and said 'I do" under the desert sun.

Their relationship began online when the dating app continued to pair Daniel up with Noz (three times) and he finally took the hint. It didn't take these two long to figure out that exactly how perfect they were together and begin to plan their dream wedding. CORRECTION: MY dream wedding!

Daniel and Noz decided to have their ceremony in agruably one of the most amazing venues in the world, San Francisco City Hall. This was a bucket list spot for me and I had to hold back giggling like a school girl as we walked around! Following the ceremony, guests were invited across the street to the War Memorial Opera House in what is called The Green Room. Wow. The space, regal and classic, paired perfectly against the industrial modern chairs and Noz's modern silk jumpsuit. Yes, I said JUMPSUIT. Oh, with a CAPE! You know, let's just get to the photos because you need this wedding in your life!

Courtney has always been telling stories, ever since she can remember. Whether it be crayola doodles, painting on a canvas, traveling the country with fellow actors, running her own jewelry business, or living abroad, she has been sharing the narratives of her life and of those around her. As a devoted artist and on the adventure of life that is motherhood, photography has become her medium of choice…and the rest is history.

+ I've been to every continental US state, lived in six states and two countries, and have visited eight other countries. I sort of like/love to travel and take every opportunity possible to experience the world. 
+ I have pumped my own gas just a handful of times (once a Jersey girl, always a Jersey girl.)
+ After working at Starbucks for seven years, I believe I have created the most high-maintenance drink. Thankfully, this is the only place my inner diva comes out.
+ I've had my work published seven times and been named one of the 100 photographers to watch in 2016. 
+ I am an ambassador for Canon USA. 


I believe we are called to love for love's sake.


He told me he was going to marry me the second time we ever met. He is spontaneous and creates adventure everywhere he walks. He feels deeply and forgives completely. When he proposed, I responded swiftly with "It would be my greatest honor." Not a day goes by when I don't feel completely blessed to be his wife, friend, confidant, spiritual warrior, and secret keeper.

I called him my Common Stranger after holding him for the first time. On one hand, I was just getting to know him, as I studied each little part of him. But, then my soul connected so deeply to him that it was as if I had always known him. He lines his cars up in a row and gives out 'I love you's at just the right time. 

He loves giving slobbery puppy kisses and 
he calls me his friend.




She arrived just 13 (too short) months after her brother and was born backwards. She has continued her journey of doing things her way and in her own time ever since. She has kept up with her brothers every move and then some. She will yell louder, run farther, or sleep harder than everyone around her.
She is strong and likes to speak her mind...and I am doing my best to remind myself that is a very good thing. 

Raising a world-changer or growing my patience. Hopefully both.




Story Mae is our newest little girl joining all the chaos in September 2015. She was 6 days late and came quick and fiercely. Britain lovingly refers to her as "my baby" and summarizes just how deeply we all have taken to her. We are so thankful to have her here. 

She has completed us all in ways we never even knew.

"Courtney presented our story so richly, with emotional integrity and beautiful nuance. She has a way of catching the heart of the moment, the transient external gestures expressive of the otherwise invisible, quiet, inner monologue. She sees detail, she sees the spirit, she sees beauty and life. Her photos are powerful statements that honestly speak of who we are and how we love."

molly + DAniel

"Courtney was better than just a photographer for me. She was always willing to answer any questions and helped me during my wedding planning. She has such an easy going personality and helped us feel comfortable on our special day. Her professionalism and personality were way above my expectations. Even guests were commenting to me about the great photographer. And then...... The photos......they are so amazing."

julie + tim

"I really can't say enough about how much I loved working with you, your energy and spirit is so warm and positive and your directing style is so relaxed yet serious and in control. And the pictures... Well my heart is melting. Thank you doesn't quite cover it... I never thought I could feel so at ease with a photographer and be so thrilled with the results. You are one of the gifted ones and I'm so grateful we got to share this day and work with you!!!"

Hannah + KEvin

"Courtney was everything I wanted in a wedding photographer and more! Her photojournalistic style was exactly what I was looking for. She traveled to NY and was very easy going when it came to accommodations, planning, etc. We are thrilled with how everything turned out!"


"You recognize and capture beauty, love, and strength because you embody them. You're an asset to our tribe. I'm happy to now call you my friend and can't wait for you to document future life events with Dave and I."
