About

Your story matters. Let's tell it.

We're an easy going couple who are all about capturing stories.

Ben grew up in northern Mexico and has a degree in Broadcast Journalism. Courtney grew up all over California and got her degree in Communications and Photography/ Videography.


We founded Sand and Stone Media because we think stories are the coolest part of being human. They connect us to each other, inspire us and help us remember the good old days.

As storytellers, we use our degrees in Broadcast Journalism and Communications (mixed with our super chilled approach to life, and love of breathing outside air) to create art through photo and video . Whether it's one of the biggest days of your life, a commercial shoot or just a casual in-between moment, we'll get to know you, crack some jokes and work our creative magic to authentically document your story.

What this means is that if you're looking for a wedding video, you'll get more than a few shots played over music. You'll get natural sounds and candid moments. If you're looking for a photographer, you'll get those inbetween moments instead of those awkward posed pictures.

We're stoked that you're considering us for whatever idea or shoot you have in mind!


Please feel free to contact us!

Courtney and Ben are both amazing!! They photographed our engagement photos last year as well as our wedding photos this past October. We could not be happier with how our photos turned out! We love them and will be using them for all our future photography needs!!

Sand and Stone Media is the best!

Ben and Courtney captured my daughter’s wedding day so perfectly. The pictures and videos are absolutely stunning. The angles, lighting, coloring and poses set them apart from all the other photographers/ videographers. They are not only incredibly talented but are genuinely kind and beautiful people. They are by far the best choice for your photography needs.

Absolutely amazing!

Courtney was so amazing to work with! We knew from the intro call that she would be perfect for her. Her positive attitude was exactly what we needed for our wedding which was a little bit of a stressful day! She captured all of the pictures that I really wanted and had great ideas for ones we hadn't thought of. Thank you Courtney!
