Information

Every couple brings with them their own story. Their own adventures, their own connection, their own unique style of love. The goal of my photography is to capture that sense of individual personality.

I bring an artistic, editorial eye to every one of my shoots. However, I’m also flexible enough to realise that each couple deserves their own approach. 

No matter what type of adventure we embark on, you can trust me to represent you and your day both beautifully and honestly.

Well what can I say, Courtney was absolutely amazing from start to finish. Myself and my now husband really hated having photos of ourselves so we really wanted someone to capture the emotion and in the moment style photos with a few classic group styles for the family. From the moment she arrived her energy was amazing, she really put me at ease and also knew exactly what looked good and had no issue telling us what to do (which is what I needed with 8 bridesmaids!) Throughout the whole day Courtney captured the most incredible moments without us even realising she was there! Not only that, we we had a sneak peak of 10 images by 11am the next day!!! All of which were incredible and it really brought back the emotion of the day. Thank you so much to Courtney and Mel for capturing our day as perfectly as we remembered it. You are the best and we are forever grateful for the memories we can now look back on and cherish forever! Hayley & Callum xxxxx--

From the moment she arrived her energy was amazing..

I will keep this short and sweet... or NOT! Courtney is the most fun, creative, outgoing, wild, passionate and a perfectionist. All of the above are just a few to mention on how incredible she was before, at and after the wedding. When you meet Courtney It honestly felt like I have known her for years, and that’s because she is just a ray of warm sunshine who makes everybody feel welcome and happy. Courtney understood when I (the bride) explained that I find it hard to smile with teeth when trying to be posey for the camera, yet Courtney has managed to capture the most incredible and beautiful photos ! Who would of though I can smile with teeth after all? Courtney understood from the beginning that my now husband and I want to have spontaneous photographs. Even if it means getting my wedding dress absolutely filthy and ruined and ripped ! Courtney not just made it happen, she captured the moments which exceeded both of our expectations! Come on, I have climbed rocks with a post broken ankle just to get an incredible photograph with a rainbow in the background by the sea! She made this happen and was patient with the slow journey. We trusted Courtney’s judgement, we trusted her guidance. Considering we only had the sneak peek photos, every-single-one of the photos, both of us fell in love. This girl has incredible career in front of her and we are beyond happy that she was able to capture most magical moments for us in Malta. Couldn’t thank Courtney enough. We couldn’t recommend her enough. This girl has no limit.’’”

Captured the most incredible photos

The lead up to the wedding Courtney made sure she new exactly what we wanted – From a shots lists to her sending me ideas about things she had in mind for us. Well what can I say…. Courtney is AMAZING. I hate having my picture taken as I’m just so awkward and don’t know how to pose. Courtney made Me and all of my bridal party feel at ease and comfortable as soon as she stepped foot into the room in the morning. She is fun, bubbly and is truly talented. The morning of my wedding I had 8 Bridesmaids,6 Flower girls,2 Hair dressers, 2 makeup artists and a Videographer in a 1 bedroom Villa - Courtney noticed me getting stressed took me to the side told me to breathe and took me into the bedroom to do bridal prep photos – she was like a breathe of fresh air to have with us on the morning… Making sure I always had a drink and I was relaxed… what more do you want on your wedding day morning. We went off for our photos just me and my Husband which I was so nervous about but within seconds we were posing away in the sunset Courtney took control and told us what to do in such a natural way it felt like it was only me and him there. The next day Courtney sent me a few edited images and I couldn’t wait to see MORE. The pictures I received blew me away. They were everything I dreamt off and more – So good I think every wall in my house will be covered in photos because I just can’t choose!! You only have to look at Courtneys photos to know she is Professional, Creative and Passionate about her work and you can tell its not just work for her. I can’t thank you enough for all your hard work and efforts on the day and I can’t wait to use you for all my future photography needs’’”

The pictures I received, blew me away.

Thank you!!! We are both absolutely in love with our pictures, you’ve given us pictures and memories we will treasure forever. You were so supportive, patient, friendly and kind through the whole thing and had lots of fun and creative ideas. We feel so lucky that you were able to help us capture our day. You are super talented. I cried when I first saw the pictures as I was so happy with them. We will treasure these pictures forever and we are extremely grateful for you.

If you want your wedding photographer to be more than just your wedding photographer.

If you value the power and emotion of timeless wedding photography.

If you live for adventure and don't mind getting your hair a little wet and your dress a little dirty to get the last of the beautiful light.

We're A Good Fit...

The Experience...


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.

An Eye For Beauty

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.

The average wait time for your photos is 6-8 weeks. However, when it’s peak wedding season, the editing process can take up to 10 weeks - but I’ll make sure to deliver a 5-10 photo ‘sneak peek’ as soon as I can (usually within 48 hours) so you can share a few special memories of your day with the guests that attended and the loved ones who couldn’t.


How long after the shoot can I expect my photos?

Fill out my contact form and we’ll set up a call to chat through your plans and ideas. Once I get to know you a little better, I can recommend a package that best serves you and your day.

Do you offer videography?

Video highlights are offered in the top package alongside a second photographer. I believe a lot of moments during the day can only be captured once so I only offer this option when a second photographer has also been added to your package. 

Should I add a second photographer? 

If you’re planning a guest capacity of 80 or more, or if you want both of you to be captured during the morning preparations, then absolutely! There are so many benefits to having a second photographer during your day. They can cover the back of the ceremony and the reactions of your guests while I focus on the two of you. If guest photos throughout the day are important to you, it’s a good idea to add the extra photographer who can capture your loved ones while I whisk you away for couples portraits.

Talking for hours and dozing off with the tv on. The record skips a few times and we pick a new song to fall asleep to. Morning coffee, a few minutes late to work, a brisk walk down the street window shopping for the upcoming fall season. Wool sweaters, bare trees, cold nights. 

Question 8

So cold we can see our breath as we hike the open fields in the fog. Climbing and chasing waterfalls while the sun sets behind the mountain and the snow falls in the river. Chatting with locals while we sip our coffee and head out for the next adventure.

Question 7

Morning coffee and reading the newspaper together, the cool fall breeze blowing through the window as you pour another cup. Black denim and leather boots, the deepest crimson flannel. Rose gold and velvet. Rich and lush. Red wine and dark twilight nights.

Question 6

Cozy sweaters, vintage demin, and Pabst while telling one of a kind love stories. The trials and tribulations of love, joy, and happiness. Lastly, champagne brunch and avocado toast while surrounded by the finest exposed brick, dreamcatchers, and maps to our souls.
