Hi, my name’s Courtney and I’m an uk based International elopement and destination wedding photographer.

Taking inspiration from photojournalism, high fashion and romantic movies, I shoot using a mix of documentary-style photography, enlivened with editorial snapshots. This approach results in curated albums that convey a storybook aesthetic of timeless glamour.

I’m a firm believer that everyone should embrace their individuality. True love doesn’t conform because each instance is one of a kind. Your wedding day - a celebration of this love - should be no different. Forget about other people’s expectations, rules or traditions.

Whether you charter a private boat to say your I do’s above the colourful reefs of the Maldives, stage the biggest bash of the millennia in a neoclassical French chateau - or anything in between - just make sure that it’s intimately, emotionally and authentically you.

Because if you’re all in, I promise you that I am too.

A little about me...

Your day. Your bond. Your story. 
Told with elegance, intimacy and beauty.

the luxury experience...

are you looking for timeless magazine worthy images that stand the test of time yet still portray the story and emotion of your day?

Are you looking to say your I do's somewhere luxurious, exotic or adventurous?

Do you plan on having a day that is unapologetically you. That oozes style, class and originality?

are you looking for an exclusive photographer who won't treat your day like another job? someone that makes you look and feel confident on your special day?




An Eye For Beauty
A good story relies just as much on what you DON’T say - to create drama and build excitement, you need a keen sense of knowing which points matter. My eye is naturally drawn to flattering angles, lights and backdrops. The way I shoot ensures that I only capture you at your best; a blemish may be considered ‘candid’ but it’s not permanent, nor is it a reflection of who you are. If a spot emerges on your big day, I’ll use subtle skin editing software to give you a fairytale flawless finish.



A Friend You Can Rely On
One thing of which you can be certain is that I got into the wedding business because I LOVE weddings! I also know a tonne about them by this point and would like nothing more than to pore over your plans to help you bring your dreams to life - both on the day and before. I’ll offer you an honest opinion whenever you want it, and over the course of our working together we’ll build enough trust that you won’t think twice about me capturing even your most intimate moments on the morning of your wedding.






Efficiency & Flexibility 
I believe that the most important thing a wedding should be is FUN! To that end, I won’t take hours setting up endless group photos after your ceremony. Instead, my approach will be quick, efficient and with a focus on keeping the celebratory spirit buzzing. I also believe that weddings should be stress-free. Let me handle finding perfect lighting - you just focus on enjoying yourselves and when the time is right I’ll whisk you away for those romantic golden hour sunset photos you’ve been dreaming of.







Extra Miles…
I don’t just want you to be excited in the run-up to your wedding, I want you to STAY excited. So, 42 hours after your big day, I’ll send through a few sneak peek highlights so you can relive all the highs again with the loved ones who were there and share the memories with those who weren’t.








yes! i would love to know more information!

Wow, where to start!! I can’t thank Courtney enough. 5 stars just doesn’t seem enough for this girl!
We found Courtney on Instagram over 2 years ago and fell in LOVE with her style. After a few messages back and forth I realised this girl was not only super talented and knew her stuff, but was one of those special people you just click with immediately and feel like you’ve known them forever.
We Immediately booked her for our wedding day on 18th Dec 21 and even though it was a 2 year engagement, we never felt ignored and forgotten about. If anything Courtney became a pen pal and couldn’t have been more helpful with all wedding prep! We shared our thoughts and ideas and she answered all our questions during this time. Any day, any time, she was there!
We met up with her for our engagement shoot which was so much fun! Not only was it so lovely to meet her in person, but she was she so great at organising the day. She went through my entire wardrobe choices over the phone with me and went above and beyond to get the photos we wanted. She made both of us feel at ease in front of the camera and caught stunning photos which we used for our wedding website and invites.
On our wedding day Courtney brought the friendliest, warmest smile all day long! She honestly felt like one of the girls, all my bridesmaids loved her! We had so much fun and she worked her socks off! We trusted her completely and wow did she deliver!! Our photos are just incredible, all our friends and family are totally blown away.
One of my best friends (and bridesmaid) got covid so couldn’t be there, Courtney knew how heartbroken I was about it and without having to say, she made sure to include her in our photos via facetime and ipads.
I could talk about her for hours, she is truly amazing in every way. If you are thinking about booking her DO IT! If you don’t you will regret it. Her work is magic, I felt like a vogue model. You will not only get a photographer but a friend too!

Some kind words about my work...
