Elopements are all about allowing you to get married exactly how and where you want. They're an extremely intentional way of getting married, and allow the focus of your wedding day to remain on the two of you.
No matter how you want to get married, you can absolutely do it! If you can dream it up, I’m here to make it happen for you.
I’m going to guide you through EVERY. SINGLE. STEP.
You probably have a million thoughts running through your head making you a bit overwhelmed.
-How does this work?
-What can I do during my elopement?
-How do I choose my location?
-Is the ceremony legal?
-Can I elope with family?
One of the reasons you're probably eloping is because you want to have a stress-free day, but with so much uncertainty on how to plan an elopement how is it even possible?!
No need to stress, you're in the right place! This is where I come in and do the heavy lifting for you.
I'm Courtney, and I specialize in documenting adventurous elopements for couples who love the outdoors! My role is so much more than just an elopement photographer.
I'm here to guide you through every single step of planning your elopement and to give you a clear path tossing that stress out the window!
Lemme get this straight - THERE ARE NO RULES TO ELOPING!! If you don’t want to hike on your elopement day, then don’t.
There are SO many other methods or ways to get to epic locations that don’t include hiking! I’m all about crafting the day that you want, so however, you want to celebrate - you bet we can do it!
I’m a go with the flow kind of person and I’d love to go on an adventure with you. We’ll be spending such a special day together!
That's why I hop on that phone call with you to make sure we'll get along great! Before ya know it we'll be cracking jokes and taking a shot or two ;) I'm here to give you permission to be yourselves!
I want this to be an easy and even fun process for you! I don’t expect you to have it all together. That’s what I’m here for!
I’ll be working closely with you to plan out every single detail. From finding the perfect location to creating a seamless timeline, I got you covered!
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!
Pleeeasee tell me you know where that quote is from?! If you do, 10 points for Gryffindor! :)
-I'm a goofball and love to laugh. So, be prepared to have a blast with me! There are no other options.
-I'm all about being relaxed, having a good time and creating incredible memories!
-I’m a tea connoisseur, animal lover and travel addict! Spending time outdoors where all you can hear are birds chirping and the wind rustling through the trees is one of my favorite things.
-Although, as much as I love to travel there is seriously nothing like coming home to sleep in my own bed and to be greeted by my husband and all my furbabies! Who's with me?! ..and yes, my household is a crazy one with all these animals, but I freaking love it!
So, if you're down for an adventure and you're ready to have a blast - you're in the right place!
I LOVE Harry Potter, but I'm a sucker for a good Rom-Com!
One random fact?
If I'm at home I'm always in Pj's! Comfort is key.
What are you terrible at?
Singing and dancing! ..but I do both anyways :)
Coffee or Tea?
Both! Since becoming a mom coffee is now in the wheelhouse hahaha.
Margarita or red wine!
What can't you leave the house without?
I always have water and my Burt's Bee's chapstick!
Favorite Netflix shows?
The Last Kingdom, Great British Bake Off, Stranger Things.. the list could go on.
How many countries have you been to?
17 and counting!
This is Silver! She's a mama's girl, a big kisser and she's very protective of me.
This is Casper! My biggest love bug by far. He has since been passed on to the big liter box in the sky, but still in my heart.
Meet Mama! She's my big scared-y cat, but she LOVES belly rubs!
Say hello to Nancy! She loves to play fetch and wants to constantly be by me!
I've picked up all of my babies up off the street! Except for Silver which I got from a rescue.
My ability to take good photos to document your day has absolutely nothing to do with how comfortable you feel in front of the camera!
DON'T THINK OF ME AS A PHOTOGRAPHER. THINK OF ME AS YOUR STORYTELLER.
Let's capture the connection you two already have and to tell the story of your elopement day.
Don't be sweating, your elopement day is not an all-day photo shoot. Let's be real, that would be pretty dang terrible!
Your elopement day is about you. Not me.
You should to focus on each other and the epic experience you're having on one of the most incredible days of your lives!
Working with Courtney was a blast! She kept everything loose and fun. She had some cool creative things for us to do and the finished product reflected that. The pictures turned out amazing! I would highly recommend her to anybody.
