About Courtland

The importance of choosing a wedding photographer that is a good fit for you and your wedding cannot be understated. Your wedding will be one of the most important and memorable days of your life. A photographer should be there to capture and enhance your fun and incredible day, and that is what I strive to provide. After all, your wedding photos are the only thing that gains value over time.

It is imperative to me to give you the peace of mind that your wedding will be captured in a beautiful way that will allow you to vividly and emotionally relive your day for years to come. I strive to capture authentic and personal moments in a mindful, adaptive, and spontaneous way. I focus on taking fun and energetic photos that are striking and alive, and love working with adventurous couples that like to travel and think outside of the box.

My goal is to provide you and your family with photos that will make you laugh, make you cry, and render you speechless. Your wedding photos will be cherished memories that you will share with your children and generations to come.

A little about me: A Denver native, I am an award-winning photographer with a degree in photojournalism from Metro State University. My father introduced me to photography at a young age and ignited my passion for being behind the lens. My original interest was in war photography, but five years ago I stumbled into wedding photography and became instantly hooked. Complete opposites, I know!

I joined the U.S. Army directly out of high school and served two tours in Iraq in the infantry. While I was in the army, I had the opportunity to travel throughout Europe and the Middle East, camera in hand, and developed a passion for experiencing different cultures and customs. One of my goals is to travel to as many countries as I am old. I am currently at 30 countries with just two more to go!

I have a serious soft spot for dogs as well, and have a passion project called Barks Abroad. I also volunteer for a veteran-owned and operated non-profit organization called Task Force ISO which helps promote photography as a means for veterans to tackle PTSD.

A few more fun facts about me: I have a Shitzu named Dusty Bottoms, and yes, I know this is not the typical dog you expect for an army grunt, but he just gets me. I have a black belt in Taekwondo, have been snow skiing since I was four, and consider myself a “cork dork” due to my love of wine.

If you think that I might be a good fit for you and your wedding, please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. I look forward to hearing from and getting to know you.
