I met Courtney a year and half ago when I photographed her intimate backyard wedding. She has become a dear, dear friend. I love this girl, and she has taught me so much about creativity and hustle, feminism, living a life of joy even after consuming grief, and building a marriage.
Anyhow. She’s super cool.
Recently, she launched a wedding planning and design business. I’m not generally the hugest fan of styled shoots–I love capturing real moments over staged ones. But when Courtney asked if I would collaborate with her on an editorial wedding shoot, I couldn’t say no. Her eye for design is fantastic, and it was super fun to work with so many incredibly talented wedding vendors. We wanted (or should I say she–she was the momentum behind all of this) to create something inspired by Colorado living and sharing a meal with friends. So here it is!
A huge thank you for the talented vendors that worked on this–check them out at the bottom of the post!
