What's the difference between an intimate wedding and an elopement?

You may think that the difference between having an elopement and an intimate wedding is defined by how many people you choose to have witness your marriage, but I don't think that is an accurate definition.


Choosing to have an elopement is about the experience you want. If you friggin want to have your closest friends and family with you, then do it! 

So, in the end, it's about your intentions on your wedding day. As long as you want to have a friggin epic experience I would love to be a part of your epic elopement!

I define elopement by the type of EXPERIENCE you want and not by how many people you want by your side on your wedding day. So, whether you have 0 or 50 people, but you want to have a stress-free day and want to keep the focus on the two of you and how you want to commit your lives together, then call it whatever you want. I'll be here for you!

Get in touch about your dream elopement!

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.

what i'm all about

Your elopement deserves to be documented from beginning to end. 

Yep! You heard me right. I am definitely suggesting you hire your elopement photographer (eh-hem--that would be me!) to document your elopement all fricken day! You may be wondering what on earth I could take pictures of for 8 hours on an elopement day. Well, the answer is so simple!

Our memories are fleeting and you'll soon forget the little details of that day and if you don't have beautiful images to remind you it will soon be forgotten. Our brains suck sometimes.

You wake up, you and your fiance hop in a jeep and head to a rad AirBnb in the mountains, you spend a few hours getting ready and write out a note to each other, you share an intimate first look, hop back into the jeep for some off-roading and head to your epic ceremony location, have a beautiful ceremony and first dance by a lake and then stroll around, and then head back to your AirBnb where a private chef awaits, have an incredible meal and end the day by a camp fire having s'mores.. and it's all documented from the beginning to the end. 

Everything! I am there to document--not pose--your elopement day from beginning to end. Do you really only want to have pictures from two hours of such an epic day?!

But, Imagine this.

Learn how it works

you'll be able to look back on your elopement day and remember it like it was yesterday. 

You deserve that.

Planning for our day and the day itself would have been completely different without Courtney. We only knew that we wanted to share our vows in the Tuscan countryside and have beautiful photos, and Courtney planned the perfect agenda for that to happen. She coordinated our timing around sunset, and not only were the photos breathtaking, but the actual evening was too. I remember looking out over the vineyards as the sun set, the view becoming more and more stunning by the minute. There were no moments that felt forced or posed, every shot was comfortable and fun and full of love. Courtney is such a sweet, kind, fun person and we truly enjoyed spending the day with her.

Courtney helped us to turn our dreams into reality, and we hardly had to do a thing. She allowed us to be in control of our day but gently took all of our wants and needs into consideration while making everything happen.

Lastly, our pictures are just magical. Courtney is an incredibly talented photographer, and I feel so lucky that we were able to work with her. I would recommend her over and over again to anyone eloping.

"We truly enjoyed spending the day with her!"

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.

As a Photographer myself, I see a LOT wrong with how Photographers approach their clients, as well as Wedding Days. 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.

Thank you again Courtney for allowing my husband and I to "marry" each other all over again! The images are stunning and I can't wait to blow them up and hang them in our home.

"BOOK HER NOW!"

Shannon + Brandon

We met Courtney over in Venice while we were traveling in Italy this summer! She was so flexible in meeting us there in Venice especially for a sunrise shoot. She made us feel comfortable from the moment we met her and completely blew us away with her creativity. She definitely has a natural eye for photography and she amazed us.

She captured our love and relationship so authentically. When we received our gallery we were speechless, we can't even choose a favourite because there are too many! We highly recommend Courtney any day! We cannot wait to meet her again somewhere new in the world!

"She made us feel comfortable from the moment we met her!"

Meaghan & Brad

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 has such a great personality!

Melissa + Justin

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!!

"Courtney is a magician with a camera!"

Kim & Lewis

I can’t thank Courtney enough for the breathtaking shoot we had! I have seriously been obsessing over the photos since I’ve got them & had the absolutely best time shooting with her! Her work is phenomenal and she’s so personable! I’d highly recommend her!

"Her work is phenomenal and she's so personable!"

Anna & Justin

Courtney did an awesome job on our elopement pictures! She gave us directions on natural poses which just had everything going super smoothly and fun. The outcome looks just amazing, we received the pictures earlier than expected and they are all just looking wonderful! Thank you so much again, Courtney!

"The outcome looks just amazing!"

Julia & Matt

Working with Courtney was an extremely easy experience, seamless, positive and obviously fun. My wife and I went on our honeymoon and wanted to surprise her with a surprise honeymoon photo shoot in Venice. Courtney worked with me to make that dream gift for my wife a reality. Meeting and posing for a photographer for the first time can be intimidating, but with Courtney it was anything but that.

Courtney is extremely positive and helpful and made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera. She played some of our favorite songs and before we knew we were just having fun and he was catching them every second. Perhaps the best part of our session was that Courtney knew all the characteristic and peaceful places of Venice, which made our photos even more extraordinary. There were no crowds of people in the back and the focus was on my wife and me. When they shared our images with friends and relatives, everyone complimented not only on Courtney's aesthetics and the emotion she was able to capture, but also how much the photos seem because there is nobody in the background. I can't thank Courtney enough for exceeding all our expectations with this photo shoot! We will definitely keep in touch for our next trip !!

"Working with Courtney was seamless!"

Nina & Jason

I just received my photos from Courtney and absolutely love them! She made our photo shoot experience seamless and exciting. She has done a wonderful job capturing true moments in our photos. I would highly recommend her!

"She made our photo shoot experience seamless and exciting!"

Sabrina + Connor

Courtney is amazing!! My husband and I wanted some photos for our anniversary and we love them! She suggested the perfect location and she made things so easy for us. We aren't used to getting our pictures taken but she made us feel relaxed and it was truly a great experience. She is professional and you simply can't go wrong! Hurry and book her!!

"It was truly a great experience!"

Sarah + Nick

If you're looking for candid pictures with a special touch, don't think twice before booking your session with Courtney! I knew that the shoot went well and I expected the pictures to be pretty but they actually turned out to be out of this world!!! I definitely recommend Courtney for high quality pictures that will make your memories last a lifetime. I can't thank you enough Courtney :))
