Venice Couple's Session | Italy Photographer | Courtney Lynn

Venice Couple’s Session

My sweet Venice, Italy! This city captured my heart many years ago when I took a trip around Europe and every time I get to go back I am always SO stoked! Jason and Nina’s Venice Couple’s Session was such a friggin blast. We met up around sunset and got to explore and walk around Venice as the sun was setting! These two got to celebrate their honeymoon in such a beautiful city and I was so stoked to be able to capture such amazing memories for them.

Venice Couple’s Session

How did you two meet?

We met when we were 15 years old at Jason’s uncles campground. My family and I were camping there the same time Jason was there.

When you did you realize that you two were meant to be? What made you want to marry each other?

We met at a time in our lives when we really needed it. My mom has passed away in 2007 and Jason’s dad passed away in 2008. We met in 2008 and it felt like our parents planned for us to meet. When it felt like no one understood our pain of losing a parent, we found each other that that’s when I knew.

How did he propose? Were you surprised or did you expect it?

Jason and I first met on the waterfall bridge at the campground when we were 15. He took me back to the bridge which was lined with petals and candles and proposed. My dad has just been out of the hospital and Jason and my sister said he was too sick to be there. We left the proposal and went to a restaurant and I was surprised by my dad and all my closest family and friends!

What drew you to have you honeymoon in Venice, Italy?!

Italy will always have a special place in our heart because that is where Jason’s dads family is and that is where Jason’s dad is buried. We knew we wanted to include Italy on our honeymoon somehow so that’s why we went to Venice and then cruised to Greece and Croatia.

Any fun story about you two or any additional information you would like to add?

Thinking back on all of the memories Jason and I shared, some of the best ones were made on our first trip to Italy where Jason’s family lives. The language barrier itself was tough enough (so I found myself conversing more with his Aunt’s dog than his family who only spoke Italian), but keeping up with their lifestyle was even harder. The time difference totally messed me up and each day I found myself sleeping more than I was awake, even during the world’s most beautiful drive down the Amalfi Coast. I quickly earned the nickname of “Nina Stanca” or tired Nina. Great impression right? So naturally when his cousin offered us coffee I was jumping for excitement for a nice caramel iced coffee, my staple drink back home. However I learned very fast that coffee meant espresso, and my soul just cannot handle espresso. Since I was already “Nina Stanca” I didn’t want to disappoint Jason’s family more each time we went to the coffee bar, so throughout the entire trip I would sneakily slide my espresso over to Jason, and the champion that he is he would drink both mine and his. The trip quickly turned into the most tiring trip of my life but the most energized one of Jason’s.

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!
