Hi, I'm Courtney!

I'm a wedding photographer and educator from Indiana! I'm so glad you've found my little corner of the internet! This is place where I like to share the love stories of my sweet couples and teach other photographers the secrets to my success. Feel free to stay a while!

Welcome to the blog!

WHAT. A. YEAR. To start my “Best Of” blog posts, we’ll start with the beginning of the Rose Courts Experience — The Engagement Session! We started all the way in April and ended these sessions on Halloween! We have Spring vibes with flowy floral dresses and Fall vibes with colorful leaves and cozy sweaters!
