HONEST MOMENTS

Moments aren't meant to be directed. You don't need to be told where to put on your shoes, how someone else's tradition dictates who helps you in your dress, or how you should react to your story unfolding. 

It's not just about moments though, but documenting authentic moments that are as diverse as the wedding stories I document. They're shy, emotional, chaotic, calm, a little buzzed, and definitely worth remembering. 

Your story will be filled with the people and memories that make YOU unique-- and there is no reason to fake that!

KILLER

PORTRAITS

Seal your wedding's fate as the most kickass love story.

wedding party are not left wondering if you look okay. I believe having well-executed portraits,

W

hen it comes to portraits, I take more of a director position so that you, your spouse, and your 

ones that WOW your friends and family, is just as important as the candid moments. Time and time again, the candid images tell the story, but the portraits are the images we hang on our walls. My style is always looking to push the envelope and create something new...a killer portrait... and I LOVE thinking outside the box. It's not unusual for me to say "Okay, I want you guys to do XYZ and just trust me on this."

"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!"

TEVONA + DAVID
