No b.s. let's keep things real


I don't know about you, but I'm over the stiff portraits where the couples look like they are holding in a massive fart. Too far? Possibly, but that's who I am. I'm not prim and proper. I like rock and roll, tacos, and putting in some leg work to get to some seriously fantastic portraits. If you're looking for adventure and don't give a crap about getting your dress or hair wet, and care more about emotions above anything else, I'm your girl! Is it me you're looking for? Hopefully.

is it me you're

looking for?

Kind Words

We are SO happy we chose Courtney to do our engagement/wedding photos. We have had a million compliments on our beautiful engagement photos - everyone that saw them asked the same thing - “who took these photos, they’re AMAZING”. Not only is she extremely talented artistically, but she has the incredible ability to make you feel totally comfortable and relaxed throughout the shoot. I would highly recommend hiring Courtney!”.
