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.
"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
