I'm a Destination Elopement Photographer for couples who are hopelessly in love and crave adventure in the outdoors! Getting to express my creativity with amazing couples in epic places all around the world never grows old.
One of my goals with every wedding or elopement I capture is to create a memorable experience. This is about your story and giving you beautiful and quality memories that you can relive, cherish and hand down as a legacy for generations!
Part of creating a memorable experience is to get to know the two of you as a couple which will make you feel SO much more comfortable in front of my camera! I am so lucky to be able to work with couples who become more than just clients to me. They become some of my closest friends! I would love to be your elopement photographer and I can't wait to help you plan your dream elopement!
Hey, I'm Courtney!
You'll be able to wholly focus on you two as a couple and your unique relationship.
You get to enjoy the most important day of your life stress free!
You can do what means the most to you rather than taking everyone's opinion into consideration!
You get to be with the person you love the most in this world in a meaningful place.
I believe in getting a little mud on your boots.
I believe in getting to know the real you.
I believe in belly laughs.
I believe in enjoying the great outdoors.
Having a big wedding bash isn’t for everybody! Not everyone dreams of getting married in a ball gown, in a castle with 300 guests. So, thank goodness there is an alternative option for those couples who prefer adventure and having their cinderella moment on top of a hill instead of a castle. As a photographer who has been around many elopements, helping couples plan them, and getting to be a part of such a special day, here is a guide that I have created for those of you thinking about eloping!
Your elopement day is a story that deserves to be told from beginning to end. I am there to document the two of you on the best day of your life. It's a day that you will celebrate forever and I want you to be able to look back and remember it like it was yesterday. There won't be any "Look here and smile!" posey and cheesy moments, because I am there capture your genuine emotions throughout the day-the happy tears and the belly laughs-so that you can truly look at your beautiful images and say "That was a freaking blast!"
My goal is to document your real, authentic and in-between crazy, fun and weird moments! I'm not there to pose you for eight hours.
I want you to be able to look back at your images 50 years later and remember it like it was yesterday. I want you to be able to see, feel and remember your genuine emotions from your incredible day.
Some people may think they know what an elopement is or what it's really about, but let me break the overall impression you or your family members may have of eloping.
It's not about purposefully leaving your family out or running away and secretly getting married or even saving money. That's not what it's really about. Not truly...
Let. Me. Tell. You. It's not the technical aspects of Photography that are the most difficult. It's the human aspect. Remembering that as a Photographer, you may be behind the lens but you are still a human, in front of other humans, in some of the most raw and intimate of moments. Courtney balances both of these necessities (but rarities) with poise, great direction, and an overall kind calmness that just makes you breathe a sigh of relief. If you've come across Courtney's page and see what you like already, BOOK HER NOW! Don't spend another second looking for another photographer that doesn't bring anywhere near the amazing light and spirit that this girl brings right here. The images are stunning and I can't wait to blow them up and hang them in our home.
"BOOK HER NOW!"

My fiance and I were so lucky to work with Courtney for our engagement photos. She did such a amazing job and took the most beautiful pictures! Not only are the pictures absolutely stunning, she made the picture taking process so much fun! Courtney has such a great personality and made us feel so comfortable. She also gave us guidance on how to stand, what do to, where to go, which made it very stress free. We are in love with our engagement photos and so thankful for Courtney's ability to capture such wonderful photographs.

Courtney is a magician with a camera! She is really great at coaching and made us feel comfortable and natural during the whole session. We did a photo shoot on giant sand dunes with more wind than we had planned. We ran around in the sand and had a lot of fun. Even though the wind was blowing like crazy and we weren't sure what the outcome would be, our final images were gorgeous keepsakes that I will treasure forever. Thank you, Courtney!!
