HEY THERE! I’M COURTNEY.
lover of puppies (of all ages,) white lilies, lattes + Chick-fil-a cookies
I’m married to my high school sweetheart and best friend, Kyle, and absolutely adore my two fur-babies, Nora and Winston. In September of 2019 we welcomed our first daughter, Hayden Grace. She sparked my love for photographing newborns, while still working with couples to capture their wedding day. I always pride myself on starting out as your photographer, but leaving your reception or session as a friend. I love connecting with madly in love brides and grooms, sweet families!
Fast-pace chaos has always been a passion of mine, and I love the creativity that goes into making photos unique. Photography became an important aspect of my life when I was old enough to look at photos of my grandparents that I had not, nor would not, get to meet. Leaving behind photographs and memories you can pass down through family is a legacy I believe should be cherished. I love all the small, yet beautiful and meaningful, details that go into making each and every session special.
Although I love photographing weddings on the weekends, I also soak up every moment I can doing all of the other things I love when I can squeeze them into my schedule. If I’m being totally honest, it’s rare you’ll catch me watching tv or relaxing by sitting down – I relax by experiencing. From coffee dates downtown with my main squeeze, to taking a short drive up to the mountains for a tough hike and a cold beer, to standing in the clearance aisle at Homegoods for a minimum of an hour (who’s with me?!) I’m always up for an adventure.
If I could only do one thing for the rest of my life – it’d be traveling. I never hopped on a plane until I was 20 years old, but I’ve been hooked since then.
My love of dogs comes from being an only child with fur-siblings. We always had at least one dog when I lived at home with my parents, at one point we had three!
I’d pick the mountains over the beach any day – I’m a neat freak so sand and I don’t mix well. Unless, it’s somewhere tropical and the drinks are free. Count me in.
I’m really terrible at writing and I am immediately regretting adding fun facts to this page, but it’s helping me procrastinate blogging (because, that too, involves writing.)
Don’t ask me to bake anything from scratch. I’m a boxed brownies, boxed cake, and canned icing kinda girl. There’s still a 70% chance I’m going to burn it because I never set a timer.
I’m not sure how anyone has a favorite song, I don’t even have a favorite genre! A single car ride with me will consist of 90’s, rap and country – Maybe within a 5 minute span.
