ourtney has always been telling stories, ever since

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.

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

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.

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.

"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."
