About Courtney

I live in the North Carolina Triangle area and travel for weddings from the Carolinas to the California coast. Non-wedding projects have taken me across the world doing documentary photography and earned me several awards. That cross-cultural experience has endowed me with a love of storytelling and revealed to me the beauty and diversity of humanity. 

I earned my bachelor’s degree from The University of North Carolina–Chapel Hill, which boasts one of the most prestigious photojournalism programs in the country. After graduation I started my photography business, devoted to telling stories, and have been shooting weddings ever since. In 2012 I founded a second company, The Birth Collective, which provides birth photography and advocacy journalism for mothers, doulas, and childbirth educators. 

With midwestern roots and a home in Raleigh, NC, I am preparing for a relocation to the San Francisco Bay Area in 2017. I’m available to travel wherever you are to tell your story - I’d love to chat with you about it!

When not eyeball-deep in photography, you'll probably find me biking in the great outdoors, trying a new dance class with friends, painting, or traveling. My deepest joy is found in exploring (whether it's new ideas, the world, or my own creativity) and connecting (with my community, my family, and my friends). Also, the pelvis is my power symbol.
