Courtney Jess Photography

When my now-husband asked me to marry him, I knew two things for certain: 1) YES!!!, and 2) we need to get Courtney Jess Photography! Courtney is a fantastic photographer and her love of what she does shines through in each photo. She made the entire wedding party feel comfortable (even the family members who dislike their photos being taken). Courtney’s creative and doesn’t make everyone “pose” awkwardly but rather move about naturally, so you forget you are taking photos. She works hard to capture all of the special moments in the day. The photos are beautiful and now we can relive the wonder of our wedding day each time we walk by one of these photos in our homes. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for capturing the essence of who we are as a couple and the love we share. If you are thinking about booking Courtney, please do as you will not be disappointed; her pictures just might say more than 1000 words! Thanks, Court!

Courtney is amazing! She goes above and beyond to find the perfect location based on your vision and works with you to create amazing pictures. Your only problem will be deciding which ones to display.

Courtney was awesome to work with and catered her services to meet our requests! We are definitely NOT a photogenic couple and didn't want the typical posed/lovey photos that are part of most wedding packages. When we met with Courtney for our engagement session we were definitely feeling out of our element trying to "pose" for photos in somewhat public locations. During the session Courtney told my husband to "think about the first time I {insert long pause here}" - I had assumed she was going to finish with "said I love you" or "kissed you" or something equally as mushy, but when she finished with "farted in front of you" I knew she was going to be great to work with!

I'm sure most photographers appreciate a bit of direction on poses, shoot locations, props, etc., but aside from not wanting the rest-your-chin-on-her-head-while-you-gaze-into-the-future photos, we really had no opinions on anything (which I'm sure is slightly frustrating for a photographer!). Courtney did a great job taking the lead on our photos - even when we were dealing with an unanticipated, last-minute, huge dump of snow in October! She arrived early, was a fly on the wall snapping photos while we were getting ready, directed the limo to the photo locations, and was open to last-minute requests like taking a detour from photos for some shots - I literally didn't have to think about a thing through the entire process.

Overall she made us feel at ease, was very easy to schedule with (even when we had to reschedule our engagement session), captured exactly the casual-type photos we had wanted, and had all of our photos edited and back to us within a month!

I have absolutely no regrets choosing Courtney for our wedding. She is very easy going and although we first at the consultation, it was like we had known each other for years! She was very receptive to all of our ideas and we received our photos quickly. If I had to do it over again I would 100% stick with Courtney. I plan on using her (and her talents) for all of our photography needs in the future!

Courtney was amazing! She was so flexible with what we wanted, and had so many unique ideas! She even drove to the meaningful places we wanted our photos done (and they were pretty far). She made us feel so comfortable, and I would highly recommend her!! Her pictures speak for themselves!

Courtney was amazing to work with. She was incredibly organized, efficient and the kindest person. She helped us with things we weren't quite sure of and was always open to our ideas. Communicating with her prior to the wedding day was a breeze. She always was able to reply in a quick manner. The wedding day went perfectly with our photography! She saw so many moments of beauty that she was able to capture. We received our wedding day pictures within a month after the big day, which was incredible! Every picture was perfect and she didn't miss a beat. I recommend Courtney 100% to capture and be apart of your special day.
