The Experience

Getting To Know You

It’s very important to me to get to know you so I can capture your true personalities and what’s most important to you in your photos. So, I’d love to set up a time for us to meet in person over a cup of coffee or a drink so we can get to know each other, I can hear about your wedding plans and we can build a friendship!

Capturing Moments

I’m dedicated to capturing the true spirit of my subjects, including emotional, funny and even awkward & silly moments. These are the photos that capture the essence of your day and the images you’ll appreciate when you look back on your photos.

High Resolution Files

I will not confuse you with pricing, restrict where you can post your images or hold your high resolution files hostage. You will always receive downloadable high resolution images so you can print them at any size and any lab of your choice!

Meet Courtney


If you’re searching for a fun & relaxed photography experience and wedding photos that include a mix of candid moments, creative portraits and emotional storytelling images, you’ve found your photographer! I’m a native Phoenician and love my historic uptown Phoenix neighborhood. My husband Chris and I can frequently be found riding our bikes to our favorite uptown establishments where we nosh on some excellent local food, and drink our favorite craft beers. I’m inspired by the outdoors and love shooting in the Phoenix desert, the pine trees and red rocks up north whenever I get the chance. I can’t wait to meet you!
