GET TO KNOW ME

Hey there, sweet friend! I'm Courtney, a wedding photographer based in Indiana and I believe wedding photography is about more than just pretty pictures. You deserve a photographer who captures the sacredness of this day and all the emotion of each moment, delivers an intentional experience and feels like an old friend behind the camera.
From providing education to help you plan a photo-friendly wedding day to partnering with your planner to create your perfect timeline, I’ll bring an attentive eye and a helping hand to the entire photographic journey. Then, I’ll transform all the magic of your big day into memories you'll cherish for years to come. So, pour a glass of bubbly because it's time to check “book photographer” off your to-do list!

You know how your favorite pictures are always taken by your best friends when you feel totally relaxed and free to be entirely yourself? But when a professional pulls out a camera, you suddenly forget how to smile? I totally understand. This is why I have intentionally crafted a photographic experience that feels like spending time with an old friend.

From my playful jokes and hype-girl personality, to the way I move naturally from one pose to the next, I carefully blend spontaneity and sophistication in a way that makes my posed photos feel almost accidental. And with my incredible attention to detail, I ensure that every photo in your final gallery is nothing short of perfection.

So, whether you’re envisioning an elegant ballroom wedding frosted with crystal chandeliers or a classic white-tent celebration on the grounds of a historic estate, you can count on me to bring my signature blend of joy and intentionality to the best day of your life. 

A photographic experience where playful meets purposeful.
