My style is Emotive, Romantic and fun. My approach to the day is 90% documentary which means for the most part you won't even know I'm there or capturing your special moments but the other 10% of the day will be shots that we discuss and get an idea for by having consultations and talks prior to the big day to make sure you get 'the shots' that you've dreamed of!
Reviews for Courtney Marie Photography

We couldn’t have been happier, Courtney captured so many moments we didn’t think were possible!
Courtney is much much more than just a wedding photographer. From the minute we booked she’s been like a second wedding planner, she’s always on hand when we need any pointers especially with location scouting for the wedding venue and especially photo opportunities! On arrival of our wedding photos we couldn’t have been happier, Courtney captured so many moments we didn’t think were possible! Courtney is not your box standard photographer, she goes above and beyond throughout the whole process. Couldn’t recommend her enough ??Sent on 18/06/2020

I honestly couldn’t believe the photos when we got them
As soon as I saw Courtney’s Instagram page I was in awe of her work. I knew I wanted her to be the one to capture my big day. There was just something about her work that I loved, everything she posted! Even before I had booked Courtney, after making enquiries, her communication skills were great. She would keep in touch with me, making sure I was ok and keeping up to date with any wedmin i was doing. She was really responsive anytime I contented her, asking various questions and gave us such great suggestions and support! She was just as excited about the wedding as we were! I honestly couldn’t believe the photos when we got them, it was better than I ever imagined. And I felt like I got to relive our big day all over again, seeing all the little bits you sometimes overlook/don’t see as a bride. I honestly can’t recommend Courtney enough.Sent on 18/06/2020

I couldn’t be happier with our pictures. I feel like they really represent us as a couple
I spent quite a lot of time trying to find a photographer for the wedding. At one point we had even decided we didn’t really want one, me and my husband aren’t really the posey type and we both felt quite awkward about the whole situation. Everyone convinced us we were crazy! But, I came across Courtney on Instagram, and her style was something I could connect with. After speaking to her (and many others) I knew I wanted her, we spoke frequently and she reassured me that we didn’t have to do any that were posed if we didn’t want to. We did end up having some very small group photos (for parents and grandparents) but all others were unposed. I couldn’t be happier with our pictures. I feel like they really represent us as a couple, we’re both quite laid back and our wedding style was similar. It wasn’t a very formal wedding! Doc martens and leather jackets etc. The pictures really show how much fun everyone had, and how wild our families and friends are I am really glad I picked her!Sent on 18/06/2020
