In my opinion, investing in quality photographs is a game changer for making memories. Turning them into something you can look back on years ahead is truly magical. With the ever evolving phone technology these days with excellent camera capabilities, having an artistic eye capture you in your purest form and creating something beautiful is truly incomparable. While I know not everyone loves to be in front of the camera, I love to provide prompts rather than posing to get natural and real reactions rather than stiff moments. I'll make you laugh, I'll hype you up, we will have the ultimate best time creating art together.

Pricing & Packages
I LOVE elopements! If you want to step away from the stress of wedding day planning, I offer reduced pricing for elopement weddings. Elopement weddings typically are shorter than a full wedding day with very limited guest count (5-20 people on average). I am more than happy to help plan your elopement with you in a way that showcases your love & speaks to you as a couple. No pressures from the family, no stress to invite your distant cousin you haven't talked to in 10 years. The beauty of an elopement is it strips down the traditional wedding to what really matters - the couple! It also allows you to point your budget in a different direction such as booking a helicopter ride to the top of Whistler and joining union with epic mountain views - with me as your witness and photographer! Elopements open a whole new door when it comes to the topic of getting married.
The contract is something that protects both you as the client and me as the photographer. It outlines any expectations we have discussed and what I am to deliver to you, while it also outlines my terms of altering the images and usage rights.
No, part of my job is to select the very best. I get rid of any mid-talking, blinking or repetitive images.
Yes, the 30% deposit locks in your date & time and is to be paid upon signing the contract. The deposit is non-refundable unless something were to happen on my end that makes it impossible for me to attend or find a replacement.
No, thatʼs like asking a baker for the cake un-frosted! Part of why you chose your photographer is you love their style of photography & editing! Please make sure to look through my portfolio to know what style you will receive as I do not change my style for specific clients. If you are looking for a photographer that is light & airy, or someone who is dark & moody, unfortunately that is not me.
The images I choose to post will be ones that are in your gallery. If you do not want any posted to social media or on my blog, there may be an additional fee as I cannot advertise my work from your beautiful wedding or session.
Every elopement & wedding day is different but here are the bare bones to how the day will play out.
For your elopement, I will show up at the beginning of your adventure, whether you are planning a hike in Algonquin Park or visiting all your favourite spots in the city - I will be there from the beginning to capture it all!
For your wedding, I will need a timeline of events and addresses to make sure I am where I need to be at the right time. We will get intimate and personal, but for the most part, I will be a fly on the wall capturing everything!
My wedding guide will take you through how the day will play out with me as your photographer (and third-wheel). As part of the booking process, I will send this once you get booked in. Don't worry, you're in good hands.
If you need to postpone your wedding, your payments can be put towards the new date, granted I am available for it! If I am not available for it, I will send a trusted associate shooter who will photograph the wedding & deliver to me the memory cards. From there, I will edit all photos in the style you see. Communication and everything leading up to your wedding will be with me, however someone else will be there on the day of to photograph it.
If your wedding is cancelled due to an illness, death in the family, or you and your partner part ways, you are released from all further payment obligations. The 30% non-refundable deposit is not refunded. The reason being is this date was held for you and I most likely had to turn away other clients, losing work should you have to cancel.

"Courtney was a phenomenal photographer to work with! From booking, to taking the pictures, to receiving our beautiful engagement pictures, everything was smooth and well-thought-out. I appreciate Courtney's guidance in choosing a location for our shoot and flexibility when the weather was not co-operating. My fiancé and I are not models, but she made us feel comfortable to be ourselves and captured it beautifully in our photos."
