Michael and Courtney are absolutely amazing. I researched photographers for months on end and couldn’t be happier that we went with these two beautiful people. They’re so quick to respond to emails and phone calls and listen to everything you want; not only for your photographs, but for your entire wedding day. They want to know your background, how you met, and how you envision your perfect day. They make you feel so comfortable and confident and take the most breath taking photographs I have ever seen.
Look no further than Courtney and Michael, you will not be disappointed!! Thank you so much for capturing our special day and making it something we can remember for the rest of our lives ❤️

Courtney and Michael are AMAZING! We could not have asked for better photographers for our wedding. Courtney and Michael were extremely professional throughout the entire process and made my wife and I very comfortable from the engagement shoot to the actual wedding day. They took our theme and brought it to life, and they worked with our hectic schedule the entire way. They captured the entire wedding day from beginning to the absolute end, giving my wife and I spectacular photos that will last a lifetime. At no point did my wife and I feel like customers, Courtney and Michael made us feel like family through it all.

Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed and Something Blue, p.s. you’ll need a photographer too. Courtney and Michael captured every detail of our wedding in a way I could never envision, the photos were breathtaking. Some of the photos brought tears to my eyes because they were so beautiful; Courtney and Michaels work didn’t just capture a moment, but it made you feel the moment, once again I was back at that magical place in time. I highly recommend this duo, we couldn’t have asked for better photographers with such amazing talent. It doesn’t hurt that they are just as beautiful when they are not behind the lens as well. They are both super sweet, yet professional and attentive to your needs to make your day special.
Attention to detail! That's what you will get when you hire Courtney and Michael! They go above and beyond to capture every moment of your Big Day! They are a wedding planners dream team to work with! You guys rock and I look forward to working with you in the very near future! Tara - SSWEbyTara
