A lil' bit about me

I was born and bred in Arkansas, but tried my best to not retain a southern accent - so I traveled any chance I could get. Still do!

I've always been the girl with messy hair, blonde sheep of the family, free spirited, open minded, but always has her roots to ground her. 

My roots are in cultivating a life that's kingdom driven with my sweet hubs and I, and simply striving to be the best humans we can be.


HEY,
i'M COURTNEY!

Not just a photographer,

for lovers and rule breakers.

a visual storyteller

I grew up on disposable cameras and scrap booking, so the same feeling of sweet nostalgia that
I get when I think about the good ole days is the same kind of feeling
I want to give YOU when documenting your special moments.

When it comes to documenting your big day, there's one thing that I want to guarantee --
you won't just be hiring a girl with a camera, you're going to get an EXPERIENCE of a lifetime!

We will most likely always breakout in dance at some point of our session, and I may get emotional when you say your vows, but let's create some magic together because it'll forever be worth it.

I was born to create, so that is what sets my soul on fire.

MY PHILOSOPHY

LET ME KNOW IF THIS IS YOU TOO!

Considers sushi as its own food group but also throws down on Chick-Fil-A.
Thrives off of traveling to new places.
Prefers to fly but don't put me in the middle seat because I'll go from sweet to hood before you can blink.
Strong believer that naps are necessary.
Loves hand-written letters and smiles at old couples holding hands.
Obsessed with essential oils.
Always jamming to Johnnyswim, Leon Bridges, or Maverick City Music.


I shamelessly get excited over the Target dollar aisle, laugh cry to anything Tiffany Haddish, and 100% obsessed with hats.

MY FAV THINGS

WHAT
INSPIRES ME

I've always been inspired by art, stories, and most importantly love. Not always just the mushy love either, but love in general. My major inspiration was when I went over to my grandparents house one day for breakfast and my grandma pulled out her special box of love letters between her and my grandpa. They read them back and forth that day and told me all about their love story,

I inherited those love letters to this day, and they mean everything to me. So the fuel I have when it comes to capturing people's stories forever is directly derived from my Gpa and Gma.
We only have one life to live and it's the BIGGEST HONOR to document it for you!

My grandparents inspired me to love love...mushy, I know.
But it was when I inherited my their love letters
that everything changed.

BEHIND
THE LENS

Behind the lens is a crazy girl from Arkansas married to the sweetest Dominican man in the world!
My favorite person in the world is my husband, Guillermo, and we're going on TWO WHOLE YRS of being married!

Honestly, our lives are pretty wonderful because we have each other and get to pursue what we love! Also shout out to the main man upstairs, Jesus, because none of this would be possible without Him. Our lives in a nutshell would be Jesus and family first, so a large part of us is that. You can also catch us cooking, traveling, shooting events together, trying different local coffee shops, watching our guilty pleasure - The Bachelor, or doing something creative.

Just a curvy creative married to
her Dominican bff.
