I met Trey over 10 years ago. We worked together and have remained friends ever since. When he and Whitney asked me to be their photographer, I was truly thrilled. They are seriously two of the nicest and kindest people you will ever meet. When they told me they were going to have an intimate wedding in Napa with only a few close friends and family, I was beyond excited. Intimate weddings are so lovely – there is truly something so special about them. I knew their day would be so sweet, and it was. From beginning to end, I completely loved every moment. They have a 4year old daughter and she was included in so many moments, which made it even more sentimental and beautiful.  I have never seen Trey happier, he was smiling all day. I could go on and on, but I am going to let the photos tell the story.

Whitney, Trey and Rowan: THANK YOU!!! I will always cherish your day and memories. I am so grateful you chose me to be a part of it. Never stop loving each other.

So the day began…

Whitney and Trey decided to see each other right before the ceremony and it was so beautiful.

So much love and happiness.

After allowing them a few minutes alone, we had Trey turn his back again and Rowan had her very own First Look with her daddy. It was seriously the cutest thing. Just look at that face.

I made them climb this ridiculously steep hill to get to this spot. I love that they were down for literally whatever I asked of them. And I am so glad because I love the next few shots.

The rest of the evening was spent having so much fun with their friends and family. It was a night to remember forever.

These cuties right here… oh my goodness. Christina and Kevin’s love is inspiring. They are genuinely happy and in love with each other and besides that, they are SO LOVELY and kind. Both of them are always smiling and always so attentive to me and whatever I needed from them. It was so easy to work with them and I literally smile every time I look at their photos.

Allison and Ryan’s wedding was truly nothing short of amazing and fabulous. A dream wedding!! Even though it POURED that day in New Orleans, the wedding went off without a hitch and was just stunning. All done at Mardi Gras World in New Orleans, they made use of the entire property to its fullest. Wink Designs was there to create a spectacular event and make sure everything ran smoothly. They TRANSFORMED this venue. It looks absolutely nothing like this normally. They created absolute magic and an atmosphere that you would never forget. Not only are they total geniuses when it comes to designing a beautiful wedding, they were wedding ninjas with keeping this event running perfectly. I was beyond impressed with their talent and professionalism. What a great team! I was thrilled to see them make Allison and Ryan’s wedding day dreams come to life.

Thank you Allison and Ryan for having me be a part of your magical day! It was an honor and I hope you cherish your photos forever. xo

  • Oh my goodness. I just love how you see and capture the world. It’s this honest story telling that is so artistically done it slays me. So beautiful.

It’s always fun to shoot on the water. More challenging for sure, but it’s amazing to capture something so romantic as a couple in a pirogue. We went down to the bayou to photograph Victoria and Corey’s engagement shoot. And I love what we got of them. I know they will cherish these photos forever. This is such a special time in their life and I glad I am the one who will be able to document their big day this fall.

    Courtney,

    Your work is amazing. I have been following you a few years and love everything you share. Corey and Victoria, you two make a beautiful couple and I can’t wait to see you start a family together! Congrats

  • Victoria Johnson

    Courtney came out to Lake Martin, to do my engagement shoot it was hot and windy and humid. I almost second guessed my location idea wondering if I had picked the wrong place, but when I saw these shots with the beautiful trees and what Courtney captured I was so Happy. My wedding theme is centered around the South and our Cajun Heritage and I can’t wait to place one of these in our new home. :)
    They will be cherished forever. Thank you Courtney and Emily xoxo

I completely adore intimate weddings. There is something so very special and memorable about it. It is so peaceful, calm and emotional. I love that Ashley and Jeremy opted to only have family members at their wedding. They had about 30 guests total. When I arrived, Ashley was so peaceful as she got her hair and makeup done. It was just her and her mom together in her room and she prepared. The entire mood of the day was so very sweet. No stress whatsoever. I cherished every moment and it was such an honor to be a part of such a sacred and beautiful day.

Ashley + Jeremy: Thank you for inviting me to photograph your special memories. I truly enjoyed every single moment. I wish you both a lifetime of happiness and love. xo

I love that they chose to do a First Look before their ceremony. This is my absolute FAVORITE moment of any couple’s day. There is just something soooo special about the couple having an alone moment to see each other before anyone else does.

terrellhouse006 terrellhouse007 terrellhouse008 terrellhouse009

It’s so obvious these two are truly in love and meant to be together.

    Courtney, I have been a photographer for over 30 years and I am completely inspired by your work. Fantastic job!!!

NaKesha and James are the cutest!! A truly stylish and lovely couple. I LOVE what they wore for their shoot. They are definitely a fantastic example of how to dress appropriately for your engagement shoot and how to coordinate outfits but not be too matchy.  I am so very thrilled they chose me to document their love. I absolutely adore what we got of their engagement shoot. And I absolutely cannot wait to photograph their wedding later this year!

Sidney is one of my cousins and she asked me to take her senior photos. I rarely do senior pictures but every now and then I will shoot one. I absolutely loved how Sidney’s turned out. She was a great subject and took direction really well. We were able to include a few with her horses and I just adore those!!! Be sure to scroll all the way to the end to see my favorites. :))
