Hi, I'm Courtney.

I am an artist by nature and somewhat of an old soul. I’m a collector of cameras and lover of naps. As a freelance creative photographer based in the San Francisco Bay Area, I enjoy shooting a wide variety of subjects.

I picked up my first camera over seven years ago and I haven’t stopped creating since. I take on everything from portraits (pets and people!), to weddings + elopements, engagements, family sessions, and beyond. There are different parts of each subject field that I love, and to say that this is more than simply a job for me is an immense understatement. I have a special love of lifestyle work and elopements.

I take a natural, photojournalistic approach to my work. My goal with every shoot is to tell a story and to let it grow organically. I enjoy the in betweens, the moments right before and after the posed photographs. I don’t do artificial, because artificial doesn’t translate into true art for me. What interests me is every unplanned detail, every genuine emotion. I want to capture the feelings that make you feel alive, the feelings that matter most to you. I am not here to tell you to “say cheese!”

If what I do sounds like what you're looking for, drop me a note. I look forward to hearing from you.
