Mike and Courtney L. bring fun and fresh images to a very boring wedding world. "Photography for Cool Kids" isn't just a slogan, it is our style of photography. We love alternative couples and anything non-traditional makes us even more eager to spend your wedding day with you. Awesome, sweet, holy amaze-balls; all fav phrases of ours, well of Courtney's. Plus if you tend to geek out over zombies, Dexter and bright colors or shiny things, we just might be photography soul-mates.

p.s. Mike and Courtney currently live in Las Vegas but are relocating to Portland, Oregon very soon! We are very excited about our upcoming move but please feel free to ask us more about this if you'd like! Read less

Cannot say enough good things about these guys. Not only did the pictures come out AMAZING, but they went above & beyond the call of duty to help us on the day.

Seriously, anyone I have shown the pics to rave about them, not just the quality but how unique they are compared to the usual wedding pics. A photographer friend of mine was in awe of the pics & he said it's obvious they really know what they're doing.

Thanks Mike & Courtney, James & I really appreciate your work & it couldn't have ended up better.

I'm not really sure how to say how incredibly amazing both Mike and Courtney are. My now husband and I are a little bit awkward and not really into being the centre of attention, but we wanted some awesome photos of our destination wedding. We found Mike and Courtney through Offbeat Bride and as soon as I saw their work I knew that they would be a perfect match. All the conversations before our wedding (We're from Ottawa, ON) made me feel completely at ease with our decision. Courtney was great to communicate with and even helped us to narrow down our reception restaurant choice. On the day of, they were wonderful. They took the reins and organized our first look on the fly and brought us to this AMAZING area of Vegas full of colourful graffiti. They guided us to poses that were comfortable to us and not lovey-dovey (as that's so not who we are). We chose to have Mike and Courtney photograph the ceremony instead of using the inhouse photography at the chapel, and I'm very glad that we did. I know that they got some amazing shots and I can't wait to see the finished product!

I couldn't have went with a better photographer!! Mike captured our personalities, our love, and our wedding day just exactly how I wanted. He did not miss a beat or a moment. Even after, I had expressed to him I don't want to pose anymore, he was completely okay with that and got really great candid shots of us having a great time. I was able to enjoy my wedding without feeling overwhelmed with taking pictures. It was a great balance. I love my wedding photos because of the high quality, and you can tell how much work goes into perfecting these photos. I trusted him to have free range with the arrangement of my wedding album and he completely exceeded my expectations again. Best photographer ever!!

I've had to re-write this review many times because I can't stop gushing about how Mike and Courtney are amazing!! I've had to cut out so many paragraphs because I can't stop raving about how much I love these two. This was actually the very first vendor I booked. Once we started playing with the idea of going to Vegas to get married, I stumbled across their site and fell head over heels in love with their first Trash the Dress blog post. I then preceded to stalk their blog and website for the next three years. I booked eight hours of photography for our wedding day and then a rwo hour Trash the Dress session two days later. Courtney is the communication queen! I could have sworn I came off like a neurotic bridezilla, but she was so chill and reassuring in her e-mails to me. She always replied a quick as possible and even made suggestions to our wedding day timeline so that we'd be able to capture as much as possible. Courtney was particularly great four days before the wedding when I found out that the Cosmopolitan became really difficult about their photography policy and I e-mailed her in a panic, trying to come up with a plan B for our first look photos and Courtney totally help us work it out! Mike and Courtney really were incredible. They were flexible and accommodating and really felt like friends by the end of the evening. I really think booking them was the single best decision we made for our wedding. Our trash the dress session was incredibly memorable too. I had an idea to put paint in some super soaker water guns and Courtney was totally enthusiastic about it. It didn't work out quite like I'd hoped it would though. We had to water down the paint so much so that it wouldn't clog the guns that it the colour didn't show up very well when we sprayed each other, but that's not their fault. We still had an amazing time and some of the photos just take my breath away. <3 <3 <3

Mike and Courtney were excellent! Before our big day, Courtney went out of her way to answer all of our questions promptly and ensure that we were comfortable. We spent a great day with them out in the dessert after our ceremony. We are very happy with the photos that they took; they are exactly what we had wanted!

Let me first start off by saying that everyone has been raving about our wedding photos from Mike and Courtney's blog, turns out you were just as fantastic as I had dreamed about! Mike and Courtney managed to create beautiful images of us the day after our wedding - and we are definitely not models! We really wanted to steer clear of formal wedding photography and they matched our style perfectly. The photographs they produce are truly works of art. Mike and Courtney captured the memories of our wedding/honeymoon perfectly, they are utterly amazing!!!!

Mike and Courtney provided our engagement and wedding photos and we couldn't have been happier with the pictures or them in general! We had such a great time working with them.. We'd like to make up another event just to hang out with them again.

Ok seriously? I love these guys. Super down to earth, super easy to work with. Photography was the most important aspect of our wedding to us. Before we booked anything else wedding related, we booked Mike L. Courtney is always quick to respond and clarify anything. Their prices are amazing. I know there are cheaper photographers out there, but Mike and Courtney are worth every penny. They had all the fancy cameras, lenses, and lighting equipment. The quality of their work is amazing. They walked in and started shooting. They got all the detail shots, candids, family formals, and pictures just messing around. We gave them the reins and let them pick the shoot locations. They kept us on time and organized throughout the day. They cracked jokes and were easy to vent to during stressful parts of the day. If you haven’t booked a photographer, you really need to consider them. I loved them!
