About Courtney Collins Photography

Nobody wants to look back at a photograph of themselves looking stiff, shy and uncomfortable. Listen, I get it. Getting your photograph taken can be awkward. I like to tell my clients that the first 5 minutes of a shoot are like an awkward first date, but then it gets better. It's my job to make you feel comfortable and - maybe crack a bad joke or two - so that before long you’ll forget the camera’s there and we’re just having fun. Robert Cappa once said, “if your pictures aren’t good enough, you aren’t close enough.” To me, this doesn’t mean barking commands and staging meticulous poses in the attempt to get a perfect shot; it means creating an environment where you feel comfortable enough to let your guard down and be who you genuinely are. That's the version of you I want to photograph. I strive for authenticity with everything that I do and I’m always rooting for my clients to have the best experience.

What is essential about photographing a wedding? Of course the undeniably important moments, but I’ll also work the peripherals of the room. I take pride in capturing the moments that otherwise would have slipped through the cracks. The look in your grandparent’s eyes as they admire your first dance or your baby cousins’ running underfoot. The little bits of time that without a photograph would otherwise be forgotten. I take this philosophy with me to every shoot. Whether it be a portrait shoot, elopements or events: capturing the imperfection of humanity is the foundation of what drives my photography. Our lives are an ongoing developing experience and I want your photos to tell the story of what really happened.

    Courtney is amazing

    From the first conversation we had over the phone with Courtney we knew she was the perfect person to have apart of our wedding. She is so amazing at what she does. Courtney makes you feel comfortable, and makes everything feel "easy". By no means am I or my Fiancé comfortable getting our photos taken, especially in a photoshoot manner, but Courtney honestly made the day SO fun that I wish we could do it every day! She is not only so easy to work with, but she genuinely cares about her clients. ALSO she is AMAZING with animals! We brought our 10 week old puppy and a 12 year old dog to our engagement shoot and even they had a blast! Courtney has only done our engagement shoot so far but I am SO excited for her to do our wedding!

    Simply Amazing!

    After stumbling upon her profile on weddingwire and falling in love with her style of photos, I reached out to Courtney in January 2020. Courtney showed a genuine interest in getting to know me, my vision, and was so accommodating and flexible every step of the way. She even helped me narrow down my outfit choices based on what would photograph better! During the shoot itself, I felt instantly at ease. Courtney has a way of making shoots feel like you're just hanging out with an old friend :) ! Fast-foward a few weeks after the shoot, and I pleasantly received an online gallery of absolutely stunning photos. I 100% recommend Courtney. She is an amazing and understanding photographer who I guarantee will bring a smile to your face.

    She really made our special day even more special.

    Reviewing 8th months after the event? No problem! Not going to talk much about the photos, they where absolutely fantastic! I had high expectations, and they where all met. Courtney have a absolute professional, consistent tone to all the photos. She really delivers! We had some correspondence prior to our wedding, discussing locations, timing, areas, and so on. We got good feedback and response to or thoughts, always enthusiastic. Courtney really cares for making this a good experience. We, a couple from Sweden, somewhat nervous about hanging out for hours with a stranger taking our photos. Ha! Courtney is such a lovely person! Really making us feel comfortable in this quite strange situation, kissing in the middle of a busy street, modeling in central park, and getting into conversations with people around us. Ending up having a few drinks together at a rooftop bar at fifth avenue. She really made our special day even more special.

    Best regard, Samuel and Frida Carlstedt.
