Client for life


the process




Collections are customized to fit the specific needs of my couples. Most of my couples spend $7k-10k on their experience.

Photography coverage ranging from 6 hours to 12 hours. Most collections are 8-10 hours long. I also offer fewer hours dedicated for small weddings and elopements. 

Plenty of coverage


Receive a custom online gallery within 2 months after your wedding. You can also share your gallery with friends and family, and order premium quality prints that ship directly to your door. 

Online gallery


Photographs are meant to be printed, preserved and cherished for generations. That's why all of my collections include a hand crafted album made of the finest materials available. My clients deserve more than photos on a screen, and so do you.  

Signature Album


I'll connect with your planner to help create the perfect timeline, and make sure we include enough time for the moments you want captured. We'll go over the entire timeline to ensure everyone is on the same page.

Timeline consultation


I personally cull, edit, and retouch every photograph I deliver to my clients. This  ensures consistency, quality, and the "Courtland Photography feel" throughout your entire gallery.

Photo editing


Adding a 2nd photographer allows us to capture more fleeting moments, document the same moment from different angles, and provide you with more memories of your special day.

2nd photographer


I make it a priority to learn about your passions and highlight those passions during your session. Some examples are: a day at the beach, wine tasting, paintball field , gun range, brewery, redwoods, paddle boarding, etc. This is your chance to be YOU.

Engagement session


 Let me document your family's journey! As long as we're both in Northern California, you'll receive one free photo session every year. You can also gift this session to friends and family.

Kat + Rob

"It’s been a long time since I’ve both met and worked with an individual who possessed great professionalism and creativity. I’m one who loves to be in the same position as Courtland, behind the camera, so I was honestly refreshingly surprised at how creative and spontaneous Courtland was. He made both myself and my fiancé feel at ease to truly be ourselves and capturing our beautiful moment but also the true raw moments that occur only noticeable behind a closed door!"


Kassandra + Nick

"Courtland did our engagement and wedding photos. We love all of our photos so much that we will need to order at least 2 albums from him. He is super responsive and asked us a lot of questions to get an idea of who we are as a couple, what our expectations were, and to ensure our wedding day went smoothly. He is creative and has a great eye for composition, detail, and capturing the memories that will last forever."


Kristin + Jason

"As ex-military, he had a lot in common with my fiancé as well as my whole family which made talking to him exceptionally easy. Not only did he go out of his way for phone calls, FaceTimes, and email correspondence, he made me feel like my wedding was just as important to him as if it were his own. I felt his passion towards his art and the day of our wedding went absolutely perfect with him and his assistant by our sides capturing all of our special moments. I would hire him 1000 times over, and cannot express enough how beautiful his pictures are, or how amazing he was to work with."


Sara + Aaron

"When we were looking to hire a wedding photographer we didn’t want photography that was boring or stuffy. We didn’t want a photographer that would simply check off a list. Courtland was that photographer, without question. For us, it felt like Courtland was a great friend at the wedding, as well as an incredible photographer. He was everywhere and nowhere. My wife and I could not have asked for a better experience for our wedding (and even for our family photos in the future)."


Alex + Phil

"Courtland is one of the most professional and talented vendors that I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Courtland was with us EVERY. STEP. OF THE WAY.  He is very proactive, you will never be left with a moment of doubt or uncertainty - which is immensely helpful when planning a wedding. The only thing more impressive about Courtland's professionalism is his talent and love for the craft of photography. We were completely blown-away by both the volume AND the quality of our finished photos."


Andrea + Meagan

"Courtland is such a genuine guy, it felt like hanging out with an old friend. Once we started our photo session he had such great ideas for natural poses and really made us feel comfortable and not too posed. He did a fantastic job of having fun with us while still remaining professional. We would highly recommend Courtland to anyone looking for a photographer!"


Amanda + Anthony

“There's no one I'd rather work with. He's professional, fun, and a problem solver. We first had courtland do our engagement shoot and loved our photos so much that we hired him for our wedding. He was involved in the wedding planning process from start to finish and his Facebook group always had helpful advice. I couldn't recommend him enough."


Courtney + Josh

“I am so thankful we made our decision about Courtland Photography. Courtland is very professional but yet fun during the entire process. He really takes the time to understand the connection you have between one another. Overall, I am grateful for our time during each moment we had with him. Thank you for everything, Courtland!"


Rochelle + Brandon

"Courtland is beyond amazing! When we started the shoot we didn’t even really notice because it happened so organically, starting with our daughter running to and from us. We all had the best time with it! We just cannot say enough great things about Courtland! He’s an all around great guy and he’s an animal lover, so that already puts him high on my list. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone!"


“So much fun to work with you! I think that made a huge difference because our comfort level was great and we could relax, have fun, and get some great shots. It allowed for some beautiful sunset shots and not just photos capturing us, but all of the surrounding details is our shoot location too.”
