Adventure Session in Germany - Courtney Lynn

Adventure Session in Germany

If you have never been to Germany it must go on your bucket list! I was so excited when I talked to Walker and Mack about their session while they were taking a vacation in Germany. They had asked if I had knew of some cool places to go near where they were staying and while the list can go on and on of all the amazing place in Germany I thought Heidelberg would be a great choice. It is a smaller town, unique and offers beautiful scenery. This Adventure Session in Heidelberg Germany was one for the books!

Location Scouting in Heidelberg

When I did my location scouting beforehand I knew I wanted to check out The Philosopher’s Walk in Heidelberg. It is in the mountains and there looked like there was some beautiful places for some photos. So I went hiking and found some perfect spots! I found an old little shack, the Thingstatte and some old Monastery ruins.

The day I went location scouting the weather was perfect and the sun was shining. However, on the day of our photo shoot the fog rolled in nice and thick, but I was actually pleasantly surprised because it gave me the ability to take some awesome shots that wouldn’t have been as cool without the fog!

Learning to embrace the weather no matter what during my session’s is the best thing because it will always provide some unique opportunities!

I talked to Walker to get some fun information about these two.

The Love Story

How did you two meet?
We met in Nashville, Tennessee. I was going to school and Mack was working at a coffee shop. I was taking a film photography course that led me to take some photos in his shop. He gave me free coffee after letting me take some photos of him making it and the rest was history.

When you did you realize that you two were meant to be? What made you want to marry each other?
Pretty much immediately after we went on our first “date”. It was more of chill hangout but I basically stuck him with a bunch of my foreign friends and he held his own and didn’t need to be socially “babied”. That’s when I knew.

How did he propose? Were you surprised or did you expect it?
He pretended like a photographer friend of his needed to take photos to build his portfolio. We went through an hour long shoot before he proposed. I knew it was coming, and was 100% sure it was happening that day, but he doesn’t know that 😉

What are some of your favorite things to do together?
Traveling to new cities, working on our home, walking our dogs through the woods.

Any fun story about you two or any additional information you would like to add?
What really makes us work is that I’m insane and he levels me out and he’s cautious and I make him more spontaneous. It’s really a perfect match.

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."

Ellie & Zac

"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!
