4 Reasons To Invest In Printing Your Photos

Most brides put a LOT of effort into planning their wedding or elopement. You spend months finding the perfect venue and plan out every single little detail. Then, with a blink of an eye you said “I do”, the wine is gone and the dancing has ended. After all that hard work there is little to remember your day besides your memories and your photos.

I know when I got married everything felt so surreal to me and the whole day I kept saying I feel like I’m not at my own wedding. Everything flew by and just like that it was over! Thank goodness I spent time finding a photographer I loved so that those memories could be treasured forever. I have them all over my house and albums that I look through all the time!

Some people decide to just keep them locked up on a hard drive. Don’t you think that’s a waste? After you spent time finding a photographer you loved and planning the perfect day you need to display those babies everywhere! It’s time to invest into printing your pictures. In my opinion, it is so important to print those beautiful photos and let me tell you why. Here are 4 Reasons To Invest In Printing Your Photos!Elopement Photographer


4 Reasons To Invest in Printing Your Photos


Looking through an album in chronological order will be like a time machine. You’ll remember things that you had forgotten that will bring a smile to your face. There is something special about actually holding the image in your hand verses having it only on your screen. Sorry not sorry, but this is where the old school ways will always win!


You most likely spent a lot of time and effort into choosing the perfect photographer for your day right? If you value photography that is what you did. If not, then keep reading and hopefully I’ll change your mind 🙂 If you chose your perfect photographer you probably spent a good amount of money investing into this person who creates images that you adore. If you already spent top dollar for the best photos, shouldn’t you treat them like the work of art that they are?

For an additional fee, most photographers will offer a printing service, and can take care of designing an album and printing whichever images you want to display in your home. I will always recommend ordering through your photographer, because the shop they use to print will be top notch.

I wasn’t a photographer when I got married, but I still knew the value of having a good wedding photographer, but I printed some of my photos out at CVS (biggest cringe ever!). Yup.. CVS Pharmacy. Please don’t do that and learn from my mistakes!


Having a quality wedding album is something that you can pass down from generations. Your grandkids or nieces and nephews can look back and make fun of your dress 😉 Not to be glum, but it’ll be something that family members can remember those who may not be with you anymore. I don’t think you want to remember your loved ones only by a silly photo with a filter over it. It will be a meaningful heirloom and momento for future generations.


Do you really think technology has taken over? I think not. How often do you actually go back through Facebook albums to remember a certain day or event. Not very often if at all huh? Growing up my mom always put scrapbooks together and I love going through the old photos of my family. When I went to Holland a few years ago to visit my family there you bet old photos were taken out of family members I barely remember and pictures of my Grandparents when they were young.

This is a way to make sure your memories don’t disappear. By investing in quality prints you can be sure that they will be with you for a lifetime and for generations to come!

trusted by & seen in

"When my now husband and I started planning our elopement, we were confused to the max. We didn’t know where to start or how to go about planning anything. 

COURTNEY MADE THE PROCESS SO EASY! She is organized, professional, sweet, and so so funny!! She does more than just photograph your day, she cares about you having the BEST elopement experience possible!

She helped us plan EVERYTHING! Even down to the little details! She helped us narrow down where, giving us her informative opinions on each of our options! She gave us cool ideas that we could incorporate into our special day. No idea was too big! When the day came, we had the absolute best time exploring and getting married!

Our elopement was an absolute DREAM COME TRUE! I will never be able to thank Courtney enough for making our dream day happen. 

So, for anyone on the fence, swaying back and forth about whether or not work with Courtney, SWAY NO MORE! You’ve found your person!! My day couldn’t have been any better and my pictures are beautiful and capture the fun we had!!! I can’t wait to work with her again!"

"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."

"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. 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."

Shannon & Brandon

"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 adventure session.

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 she was catching them every second. Perhaps the best part of our session was that Courtney knew all the characteristic and peaceful places of where we were, which made our photos even more extraordinary.

She kept the focus on my wife and me. When we shared our images with friends and relatives, everyone complimented on Courtney's aesthetics and the emotion she was able to capture. I can't thank Courtney enough for exceeding all our expectations with this photo shoot!!"


"Pick her -- she's the best! Courtney is amazing! Seriously! If you're thinking about eloping you should snatch her up to capture your day. She makes the entire experience fun and relaxed plus the pictures just blew us away. I will never forget our magical time in Venice and I'm obsessed with the gorgeous photos Courtney took of us. She's so so good!"

Jami & Tim

Courtney is not only a talented photographer, but she makes you feel so comfortable even though being in front of the camera can be nerve-wracking! She did such an amazing job with our day and if I had to pick my favorite photo it would take FOREVER, because I love so many! Definitely consider her if you want adventurous and beautiful photos coupled with an amazing experience!
