ABOUT

Realizing how important this day is, I treat your wedding if it were my own, constantly looking for every moment.  I love my family and friends dearly and I know you love yours just the same. I may or may not have been known to memorize names of extended family members before your big day, and my approach is first and foremost to spur a connection, both with you, and between you and your loved ones.

Serving the Reno/Lake Tahoe area for over 12 years, I have been privileged to photography over 150 weddings and more than 500 portraits session of all genres. My experience, not only in photography, but it working with all types of people in all types of settings and situations is a valuable asset I keep in my back pocket. I love that the number one comment I hear back from couples is how comfortable I made everyone feel. That’s my ultimate goal, which means you’ll get the genuine, unposed, giddy-in-love, melt-my-lens moments.

TESTIMONIALS

Courtney is all around the best! MARRIED: July 10, 2021 VENUE: Sugar Bowl Resort Courtney is all around the best!! She is such an incredibly skilled photographer and has a way of making you feel comfortable and calm - which was MUCH needed through COVID and on my wedding day. She is professional and always quick to respond. We couldn't be happier with our photos and choosing Courtney to capture both engagement and wedding photos for us. Amanda Crissman and Ian Bruns
Talented, Professional, and Sweetest Person Ever MARRIED: September 11, 2021 VENUE: Palisades High Camp We bonded with Courtney the first phone conversation we had with her. Her calm demeanor and open to all our ideas was a huge plus, but she felt like an instant friend. To top it all off, her work is OFF THE CHARTS. She captures the most rawest moments and makes you feel like your friend is snapping photos of you. You can see in our wedding album we are insanely comfortable in front of HER camera. Throw us in front of a camera usually, we can be stiff and not nearly as photogenic. Lastly, I got the pleasure to work with Courtney for an additional year due to the pandemic. She is incredibly responsive, and her messages allows echo the same sentiment of my review above, kind and sweet. She was such a bright light in such an uncertain time, and we are so grateful for her. Taylor and Don Jennings
5 STARS IS NOT ENOUGH!!! MARRIED: July 31, 2021 VENUE: Private Residence, South Lake Tahoe Courtney was an absolute pleasure to work with from the moment we met her. Not only does she take absolutely gorgeous photos, but she brought an infectious positivity, warmth, and enthusiasm to every conversation we had leading up to the wedding and the big day itself. - Courtney has a gift at capturing a beautiful blend of formal and candid photos throughout the wedding day. - Courtney does her research. In the weeks and months leading up to your wedding, Courtney will make a detailed photography plan, making sure every shot you want has a time and place. - Courtney is a soothing and calming presence. Whenever things started feeling hectic on wedding day, Courtney was there to calm everyone down (especially me!) and make everyone feel comfortable. Even though she was busy working the whole time, I truly felt like Courtney was a member of our family and a guest at our wedding. I couldn't imagine our wedding day without her! Amanda Benjamin
"THE ONLY THING MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN HER PHOTOGRAPHY IS HER HEART!" We had so many compliments about our photographer. Courtney made everyone feel so comfortable, and we are thankful for that (and her!). Dream come true, and Courtney was such a huge part of it. You are EVERYTHING, Courtney!" Lucy + Chris
"...ABLE TO BLEND RIGHT IN WITH OUR FAMILY..." Yao + Aya
"Courtney was absolutely incredible-the epitome of a professional and the ultimate problem solver! Her calming presence relaxed everyone's nerves! Courtney is extremely creative, organized and efficient. She managed to handle a large bridal party (plus a rambunctious 9-year-old!) with grace and ease. She made everyone feel important and beautiful. Our videographers and guests continue to rave about her expertise. We couldn't imagine our wedding without her!" Julie + Mike
"...CAPTURED SO MANY CANDID, TENDER, & SPECIAL MOMENTS. Courtney was AMAZING to work with for our wedding and engagement photos!! She was warm, compassionate, and fun and she captured so many candid, tender, and special moments throughout our day. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience all the way through including the planning process, the day of the wedding, and after when we received our photos. Not only is Courtney always smiling and setting such a happy tone, but she is incredibly artistic and talented." Corrinne + Cam
"COURTNEY IS A GEM. Her professionalism and artistic talent truly cannot be beat. My fiance and I are so pleased from the results of our engagement shoot! We were so excited to tell our friends and family about the engagement shoot and share our pictures. She is prompt in responsiveness, punctual, funny, personable, and truly a talented artist. We are more than confident that choosing Courtney to capture our nuptials was the best decision we've made. I'm highly "picky" when it comes to taking my photo and she surpassed all of my expectations (very high - ha!). Our home will be full of framed pictures from our engagement shoot!" Trisha + Chris
