I'm Courtney, a Gloucestershire wedding photographer. I live in the Cotswolds with my husband Adam, our baby daughter Aurla and our two crazy border terrier pups Elsa & Albie.

I have been a full time wedding photographer for over 12 years, with a portfolio of 400+ weddings,  I started my photography business in Lincolnshire in '07 and have had the pleasure being commissioned for a great range of events from fashion, celebrity shoots, film stills and live music through to weddings, portraits and commercial shoots.

I moved down to Gloucestershire at the end of 2013 with Adam & I feel extremely lucky to be able to call this beautiful part of the world my home. There are also so many stunning and luxurious Cotswold wedding venues around - I can see why people travel to marry here!


Photography is my absolute passion and I am forever grateful that I get to photograph people getting married for a living!  

Weddings are such an honour to photograph and to be a part of.
I capture all the elements of the day discreetly; creating a great mixture of natural moments, soft and romantic private newly-wed photos, relaxed group shots and those sweet little details – all photographed with beautiful, natural light. 

I got married myself in July 2016, there's nothing quite like being a bride for the day and its an experience I will never forget. The day really does go by so fast and my approach to photographing your wedding day will ensure you have those memories forever. No cheese, dictation or standing for formal photos for hours on end with me - Instead, lots of fun & good laughs! I always get comments from guests, asking how long I have been friends with the bride & groom for, which to me, is the best compliment!!

I always like to get to know you before the big day so to help you get to know me a bit better, here are a few fun and honest facts about me:

* I use Canon equipment - i'm a camera hoarder! 
* I have a huge obsession with Pearls and own a selection from earrings to an engagement ring.
* White Chocolate Hot Chocolate (with marshmallows) or Chai Latte are my favourite drinks, but please don't get me to choose between the two!
* My dream is to one day, convert an old barn into a home!
* I mentor for the Young Enterprise, helping to inspire young teens to turn their passions into a business. 

* Some career highlights for me include photographing awesome celebs and bands including Idris Elba & Status Quo (where i met my husband, he was the sound engineer!) Being published in Professional Photographer, Wedding Ideas, Brides, Practical Photography, Photo Pro, Digital SLR photography, Cotswold Style plus numerous book covers and on national wedding blogs, on a regular basis. 

I love to chat weddings and will definitely want to hear your plans for your big day; please do get in touch on 07823440536 or email me at: info@courtneylouisephotography.co.uk
