Where old souls with big hearts can be at ease having their most meaningful moments captured naturally.
My goal with all the couples I work with, and my brand for that matter, is high end images with a laid back experience
I don’t want to be a photographer you hire. Photographers just take pretty pictures. I want to be your friend. Friends relate, they laugh together, and share stories. I want to capture your stories.
I approach each wedding as if it were my own. I want to capture all the people you’ve chosen to share this day with and all the little things you’ve spent months preparing. Every part of that day is equally important. I want to catch the deep breath you take as your slip into your wedding gown or tighten your necktie, the passion in your embrace as you first lay eyes on each other, the tears that fill eyes as they watch you recite your vows, your grandma who cuts loose on the dancefloor to Vanilla Ice, and everyone and everything in between.
I do what I do because of the warmth I feel capturing the love between others and letting them see the beauty they possess through the art of photography. I adore love. It needs to be shared more often. It makes the world better and I want my images to make your world better.

Courtney's photographs are a dream AND she is a wonderful person to be around!!! Highly recommend.
Courtney was a dream to work with & have with us on our wedding day!! Throughout the entire process of finding a photographer, planning our wedding day timeline, selecting our preferences for photos on the big day, and the actual wedding day, Courtney could not have been more professional, kind, warm, thorough, and easy to be around! She brings an energy that put me, my husband, and my entire family at ease. A bride spends a lot of time on her wedding day with the photographer, and Courtney was absolutely someone I wanted with me & my closest loved ones on my wedding day! We did our engagement shoot with Courtney, which I really recommend, since it gave us all a chance to get to know each other and get more comfortable in front of the camera before the big day. And, we got to tell her exactly which of the engagement photos we liked the most, so she could capture similar expressions/landscapes on the wedding day! And she absolutely did! Her photos are incredible, and she captured so many glimpses of small, special moments throughout our wedding day that we will treasure forever. She captured many special little moments that we didn't even get to see ourselves on the wedding day, and we are so grateful for those photos (i.e. pictures of our ring bearer doing sweet & silly little things pre-ceremony). She also respected our wishes for limited portraits and more candids, so we could join our cocktail hour/reception for as much time as possible! We are so happy with our album of photos, and it will be difficult to choose which to frame. On a final note, Courtney learned the names/relations of our family members (based on the questionnaire we filled out before the wedding day), which REALLY impressed our family and helped move portraits along quickly after our ceremony! Thank you Courtney!!!!!! We are SO grateful for you!Sent on 10/12/2019

Courtney is truly amazing - WOW!
Courtney was incredible. My now husband and I spoke with a few photographers and from our first conversation with Courtney, we knew she would capture our day perfectly. We met with her via Skype and talked through our perfect day and she was so so helpful - before we had even signed anything with her! She made us feel comfortable and excited and she was so fun! We immediately said yes! Once we got the ball rolling with wedding planning, Courtney surprised us with a goodie box (so unexpected!). It’s the little touches like those that made us feel like we were important to her.Sent on 11/30/2018
Leading up to the wedding, she was so helpful with our timeline and determining who needed to be where, when. We didn’t have a planner, so we were nervous that we were missing something along the way and Courtney kindly helped us through anything we needed with the timeline.
For the day of, I don’t even know where to begin. Courtney brought us the sweetest gift to celebrate our big day and immediately started capturing all the special moments. From the girls’ makeup to the details to all the little moments with my bridesmaids. It was perfection. We added a second photographer, Eden who captured everything for my husband as they were getting ready. She was also AMAZING! (I am convinced Courtney only knows incredibly talented people). She made sure we were on track with our timeline and that she was there to capture every moment. We had even included the photo booth and all I can say is WOW! If those images were the only images from our wedding - I think we still would’ve been happy! Even those were amazing. She snuck us out onto the dock at sunset to capture a few photos of my husband and I during dinner (and when I say she snuck us out she went and found someone to get the keys to open the dock gates for us - again, she went above and beyond!). There were so many great photos of our family and friends enjoying our big day. I had a handful of friends who were married at the wedding and they all came up to me during (and when we got all our photos) and told us they wanted to do their weddings over again and have Courtney capture it. She was that good. Anyone would be lucky to have her capture their big day
We requested a Sneak Peak of a few photos to create a thank you card - Courtney didn’t even hesitate in saying yes and rather than sending just five or so photos she sent nearly 100! Just as she did at all the other moments she went above and beyond.
We received all of our photos sooner than anticipated from Courtney (which led to a long weekend, looking over every single photo together) and she captured moments I couldn’t even remember happening. They were all perfection. Words cannot express how thrilled we are that Courtney was there for our special day. Nobody else could’ve captured the moments she did and in the way she did it. We had portraits, candids, beautiful scenery shots. Everything we had wanted and more! She also sent us Zip drives AND nearly a hundred printed photos (which we were NOT expecting). Seriously, the little touches of hers were truly the icing on top of our already perfect wedding cake.

Courtney is a GEM. Her professionalism and artistic talent truly cannot be beat. My fiance and I are so pleased from the results of our engagement shoot! We were so excited to tell our friends and family about the engagement shoot and share our pictures. She is prompt in responsiveness, punctual, funny, personable, and truly a talented artist. We are more than confident that choosing Courtney to capture our nuptials was the best decision we've made. I'm highly "picky" when it comes to taking my photo and she surpassed all of my expectations (very high - ha!). Our home will be full of framed pictures from our engagement shoot!Sent on 07/05/2018
Courtney is beyond creative, ultra professional, has an incredible eye for capturing weddings (and all the details that make events like this so special?), and is a dream to work with. She's not only a really talented photographer, but she's down to earth and has a super sweet personality which allows you to feel quite comfortable in front of her lens. I highly recommend her services. She's the best of the best!
If you are looking for a wall of beautiful art, then Courtney is the girl for you. She is very creative and has a way of capturing her subjects in a way that other photographers miss. Your photos are the memories that will last a lifetime, and Courtney will captured them in a unique and beautiful light.
Courtney is an amazing photographer. Don and I have shared several weddings with her over the years and we have a very special connection. Our duo, Avalanche an Acoustic Duo ~ Violin and Guitar, was honored when she selected us to provide the live music for her own wedding. Check out our website: www.tahoeweddingmusic.com She took the photos for our web site. She has an incredible ability to connect with her clients. You will be very pleased if you select Courtney to capture your precious wedding moments that you will cherish for years to come.
