I get so excited when I get to shoot at a wedding. I love all the little details and beauty of the day. I am incredibly passionate about weddings and I love capturing those special moments that you might have missed on your special day. I love grabbing those images when no one thinks anyone is looking. I love raw emotion and I have learned when and where to look to capture those moments for you.

I love getting to know my clients and really becoming a part of their circle of friends. I try and capture your personality in my photos, so that they are personalized as your own and not just "pose and snap." Its important to me that you have fun on our photoshoots and that you are able to trust me.

I have been featured on several blogs including A Thousand Threads, Aisle Candy, Wedding Wire, Bridesview, Pretty Little Weddings, La Bella Bride, The 30 Something Bride, Studio DIY, Wed Candy, Wedding Obsession, Wed4Less NW, and Brautstories.

Courtney took our engagement & wedding photos and we couldn't be happier with everything that we received back from her. She truly has an amazing talent and it shows in her work.

The pictures were really easy to access and download when she completed editing them, and she is always really quick to respond to your questions!

Courtney was really fun and easy to work with. She has such a fun loving personality- all of my friends and family loved her as well.

We are so thankful that we chose to go with her and will have these amazing pictures to treasure forever. We would choose her again every time!

Courtney was truly incredible! I could not have asked for a better photographer for my wedding. Courtney was so attentive and made the whole experience so much fun! When my family went a little crazy with wanting to take their own pictures she made a funny little joke about us wanting the pictures from her camera to get everyones attention back and it was perfect and carefree! Courtney-I can not thank you enough for everything you did to make my wedding perfect! You are amazing and so talented!

Courtney is amazing. Truly. Not only does she take incredible photos (and they really are stunning), she tries to make your day everything you want it to be. She has an astute eye for beautiful shots and goes above and beyond to make sure she captures the best of you. Her photos are timeless and elegant; I have never felt more beautiful than when Courtney's camera was on me. I always felt like she genuinely wanted our wedding day to be perfect. Some photographers can have a tendency to be a bit pushy or not really listen to what you are saying, but I never felt that way with Courtney - I always felt like I had a voice in what I wanted, which was a great gift.

I would highly recommend Courtney as a photographer for any event. From the beginning I felt at ease in her guidance and instantly clicked with her carefree style.

I'm just thankful I was able to snag her as my wedding photographer :).

My experience with Courtney was not for a wedding. It was just a couple session with my boyfriend of 6 years. We wanted to get professional pictures taken together and decided that Courtney would be the best photographer for us! During our session, I loved how comfortable she made us feel. I didn't feel awkward in front of the camera which is what I was worried about. I loved the Courtney was honest with what look great and what didn't in a photo. Like for posing for instance. She gave great tips and pointers for a perfect photo. Which meant a lot to me because I wanted GREAT photos, not just good. I also trusted in her with locations. She picked awesome spots that she found herself! I loved it because it wasn't a typical location that was crowded with people which made me even more comfortable. On top of all this, she got us our pictures done within the week of taking them! Courtney is a very sweet person and all around great photographer. I will recommend her to anyone who needs a photographer!

Courtney Bowlden is a great engagement/wedding photographer! The first time we met her, she immediately put both my husband and I at ease and made each photo session relaxed and fun. My husband can be pretty shy, so finding a photographer he felt comfortable with was very important to us.

All of our pictures turned out great. I've even had other professional photographers tell us our pictures look great. Courtney was able to get all of the "shots" we requested, but made them all look unique and unscripted.

I would highly recommend Courtney Bowlden to photograph your special event!

My experience with Courtney was amazing. Very flexible, so sweet and kind, she made it VERY easy to work with her, when usually I feel uncomfortable being photographed. I have a condition where I blush more than the normal person, but the pictures I've seen thus far were so amazingly edited you couldn't even tell. I will look back on that day and remember how beautiful it was, not about little insecurities, and that is priceless. She was on time, energetic, optimistic and I can't say enough about the quality of the photos. My husband and I love her and her work and would recommend her to anyone looking for a professional photographer. Her prices are more than reasonable considering what she can do. You'll be missing out if you don't go with Courtney! :)

Courtney Bowlden is truly amazing. Her photography is stunning but it's her personality and her attitude she sheds during your session that is what is beautiful. I've had multiple shoots with Courtney and not one time have I felt uncomfortable she's brings so much joy and fun to the shoot that I feel like I'm just having a good time not posing for pictures. She is so talented in her editing process, professional with her quick turn around time, she's simply one of a kind. You won't be dissapointed with Courtney, she'll bring you everything you wanted and more if you choose to go with her for your special day.

Courtney was phenomenal. I felt like captured every moment as if it was one for her own family. I am so happy with the photos! I've had other photographers for events and things ended up like line ups of the people who attend. With Courtney I felt like she captured feelings and moments that are now unforgettable. She gave me memories... Honestly the day goes by so fast you miss so many things in it. When I look back at the photos it makes me cry because I get to relive the whole thing. I can't say how amazing it was to have Courtney as our photographer. She's genuine, professional and she really cares.

Courtney Bowlden was an amazing find for our wedding photographer! We were extremely pleased with her eagerness, creativity, and talent! She did a remarkable job catching all of the special memories from our big day. It has almost been a year and we can look at all of our pictures and remember the day so vividly. With her beautiful pictures to remind us of all the little details and emotions, we can not only share our wedding with those that weren't able to attend but can also reflect on the best day of our lives! Thanks Courtney!

Courtney and her crew were fantastic all around. She always had a plan and a way to make everyone very comfortable for pictures which equals GREAT PICS!! She was always on time and if we were a bit late (which we were sometimes) she had a plan to compensate. She was very affordable and able to work with us on the pricing. Overall it was a great experience resulting in beautiful pictures. I would recommend her at any price!

She really captures the moments you would never end up seeing yourself. For example, you and your love are just talking sweetly to each other and she's able to take that moment and turn it into something you'll remember for so long. Courtney has such a talent, she pulled our personalities out and it is evident in our beautiful photos. She works with you and with what you want. She sticks to her word. Courtney really knows what she's doing and is so flexible. Something else I really noticed is that she catches all the small details as well. Other photographers that I inquired with showed me some sample photos and either the focus was off in the wrong spots or the angles weren't really what I was looking for. Should there be another chance she could be our photographer again (we are up in Canada now), we would totally choose her.
