Hi, I’m Courtney! A believer, sister, daughter - Columbia-raised, Greenville-based & Charleston-infatuated. I’m an SC-based wedding photographer who is deeply passionate about creating a life-giving experience for brides & couples throughout their engagement season and on the best day of their lives.
Chances are, you’ve found your person, you’re planning the best day, you can’t wait for all of your people to be in one place, and you want to soak up every bit of this season! You want a photographer who is experienced and invested in your day. Someone who is warm, genuine, organized and encouraging.
As a former wedding planner & coordinator, I truly have an understanding for the time, hard work and the many details involved in the planning process. As your wedding photographer, my goal extends beyond my camera to put you at ease and offer encouragement so you can enjoy this sweet time. It is a great honor to capture these fleeting moments that begin your legacy, and my hope is that a lasting friendship is built as we walk through this season together!
I believe in being intentional, grateful, & kind, cherishing each season, and serving and coming along my brides. I believe in the sanctity of marriage, and that it is one of God’s greatest gifts. After photographing 50 weddings, my passion has only grown deeper and I have to pinch myself every day over this incredibly meaningful work that has been given to me!
When I’m not behind the camera, you can find me in comfy clothes, goal-setting and swinging on the back porch with my pup, working out with friends, or planning my next day trip to Charleston. My favorite days begin with hazelnut iced coffee and scripture, and end with moose tracks ice cream.

Now, on to the fun stuff!
I can't wait to hear from you! Once you reach out, we'll either set up a phone call or a time to meet for lunch, coffee or ice cream! I love hearing all about your story, plans for the wedding day and want to offer encouragement and friendship throughout this season. Upon booking, you'll receive an extensive Welcome Guide full of tips, details and everything you need to know!
Next on the list
Our first step after booking will be to schedule your engagement session! We'll work together to coordinate the best date, time and location. I'll also send over an outfit guide and you'll have your photos back in 1 week!
AKA the best excuse to snuggle your person
Bridals are next on the list! We'll schedule this once your alterations are finished, and about 4 weeks out from the big day. We'll coordinate with your florist and hair/makeup vendors and have a blast capturing you in your dress!
Photos to cherish and your floral/HMU trial all in one!
Onto the best day ever!
In the last couple of months before your wedding, we will finalize all your details, create your timeline and family photo list, and keep that final countdown going! As a past wedding planner & coordinator, I truly understand all of the elements that go into a wedding day, and I am here for you every step of the way!
the heart behind the camera
My goal on a wedding day is to always bring a life-giving, encouraging and loving presence, serving and pouring out generously in reflection of the One who has been so generous to me. This form of serving, this wonderful gift of capturing such a meaningful day often feels more like a way to worship as my cup continues to overflow!
