We love wedding day! The gown, happy tears, and palpable joy felt all around. We know how to capture every moment you'll want to remember forever.

Each celebration is different and each couple has different needs and desires. We intend to provide everything you need and more, which is why Courtney will discuss your timeline and vision to make sure everything is as you imagine it to be and nothing is missed. On average, couple's spend around $6900-$8900+ for 8-10 hours of wedding day coverage.
Every wedding comes with a second photographer.

details that help you shine.

Booking a destination or travelling photographer is likely one of your first vendor decisions. Your photographs are what will preserve the moments and memories of this once in a lifetime experience. I believe in keeping travel fees simple and overdelivering every step of the way.

A travel fee allows me to handle my own accommodations. I will arrange to arrive beforehand and acclimate to the destination, scope out the best photograph locations, and be ready the moment you arrive.

we're just as excited as you.

Because destination weddings include a few additional details, we recommend you book well in advance, when possible, to ensure your date is available. This also allows for Courtney to help you with your planning and questions along the way. Not all photographers are created equal, but in this case, Courtney is the absolute best you could ask for when it comes to planning destination.

Like we said, it really is that simple.
