COURTNEY MORGAN PHOTOGRAPHY IS A VIRGINIA + DESTINATION

dedicated to documenting your genuine love story in a timeless way!

I'm so happy you're here.

Congratulations!

Whether you just got engaged, are eloping in a dreamy location, or celebrating your one-year wedding anniversary with your husband, you came to the right place! After being a professional photographer for five years, I have had the privilege to photograph joyful couples with their bursting love for one another! I believe that every couple has a story to tell and I would love to hear your story; how you met, how he proposed to you and what made you fall head over heels in love.

What I love most, is connecting and building a relationship with my couples on a personal level and getting to know them to ensure we are a great fit!! On your wedding day, I want to feel like one of your best friends! After all, I’ll be by your side your whole wedding day! Choosing the right photographer is extremely important, because after your wedding day passes, the only thing you will have left are your memories and photographs. I'm here to capture these timeless memories.

"I love this part of the process! It is almost a guarantee that we will be the perfect fit for each other! Let's chat over FaceTime with a glass of wine (or drink of your choice) and lets do this!!!"

01

Let’s Be Friends!

step 01.

One of the most important things to me is building an amazing relationship with you! This isn’t just a business transaction for me - I truly value you! I want you to have faith in the fact that although I am technically a vendor, I consider myself a friend first. I love to set up video chats and so we can meet face to face and discuss all the pretty details about your wedding day!

"This is probably the easiest step in the process but can be a little overwhelming with the contract. I promise, the contract is straight forward and I'm always here to answer any questions you may have!"

02

Save the Date!

step 02.

Yay! You decided to be a Courtney Morgan Bride! Once you make the decision to move forward, the booking process is a breeze! I will gather some information and from there, I’ll write up our contract & send the invoice for your retainer. Once that is signed, we are officially OFFICIAL!

"WELCOME TO THE FAMILY! Now that the contract is signed, it's time to officially meet each other, talk about your love story, talk all about wedding things, and show off that love of yours to the camera!"

03

Engagement Session

step 03.

It’s time to pick the perfect location for your engagement session. I’m an adventurer so if you’re looking to hike to get that breathtaking view or if you’re looking to take a road trip to the beach, I’m so down for that! We will spend 90 minutes together and I will coach you through posing for the entire session. This is the perfect time for us to get to know one another & get comfortable working together!

"At this point, I'm just jumping for joy after reading all your beautiful details! This is where we will discuss the timeline, your must have photos, and anything I should know about for your wedding!" 

04

Final Video Chat

step 04.

As your wedding day approaches, I will send you a questionnaire that gives me all the details I need to know about your wedding day. Finalized timelines, all vendors involved, and all the details you worked so hard on! Once that is submitted, we will have our final video chat to discuss all wedding things and any questions you may have!

"I am sure your body is just filled with so many emotions and SO nervous. Don't worry! I got you, girl! No need to be nervous because you're working with incredible vendors and you're about to become a wife!!!"

05

Wedding Day

step 05.

Yayy!! The day is finally here! The day you’ve been waiting for your entire life! At this point, all questions have been answered, the schedule has been finalized, and you are ready to walk down the aisle. I will be there from beginning to end capturing your most special day!

"Are you ready to relive your wedding day through photographs?! Your online gallery is customized just for you with easy navigation and your images organized into different categories!"   

06

Gallery Delivery

step 06.

You can expect to receive your finished gallery approximately three weeks following your wedding day. Your online gallery is where you are able to download, share and print all of the high-resolution digital files. They are backed up for 10 years online, so your gallery won’t disappear on you! The link I give to you is shareable as well so your entire family/friends can see them as well!

"Once you have looked through your gallery, it's time for you and your HUSBAND to sit down together and pick your absolute favorites that you want displayed in the album! Now might be the time for wine :)"

07

Album Design

step 07.

If you choose a wedding package with a custom designed leather album, we will begin the album design process after you receive your digital gallery. We will work together to create beautifully designed spreads, choose cover options and finalize details for your album before it’s printed and shipped directly to you.

the investment

All wedding collections include a complimentary engagement session, 8 hours of coverage, and an online gallery that displays all of your beautifully high resolution digital files.

If you are eloping or renewing your vows and won’t need full day coverage, I would absolutely love to create a custom collection that will suit your day best!

Next Frequently Asked Questions ⟶

I am located in Fredericksburg, VA which is about 45 minutes outside of Washington DC...but I love to travel and always have my passport ready!

Where are you located?

ABSOLUTELY! I travel all over! I’ve photographed weddings in North Carolina, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Delaware, and all the way across the country in Washington State!

Will you travel for my wedding?

Truthfully, it’s best if you book me as soon as you book your venue and have your wedding date secured. Especially if you’re looking to book in the fall! My calendar fills up very quickly during the fall months!

When should I book you for my wedding?

I will guide you through this whole process! I will give you tips and tricks on what looks phenomenal and what doesn’t photograph so well. I promise, you’ll look fabulous for your session!

What should I wear to my engagement session?

For an engagement session, expect to receive your online gallery 1 week from your session date. For your wedding photos, expect to receive your online gallery in 3 weeks!

When will I receive my photos?

I do offer the opportunity to purchase a second photographer option! With that said, I have photographers that I absolutely adore and trust to photograph your day along side of me if you do choose that option!

Do you have a second photographer?

Y'all have me Blushin'...

"Don't let anyone else take your pictures, she is the absolute best!!"

Courtney was so wonderful to work with! She goes above and beyond to make sure her clients are 100% happy. She was calm, relaxed, and constantly making us laugh which was exactly what we needed on our stressful wedding day. We got married on a rainy day and she stuck it out for 2 hours even getting on the ground to get the perfect shots we fell in love with. I cannot imagine my wedding pictures being anymore perfect, despite the rain!

- Selena Petters

"I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, Courtney is a rockstar!"

Courtney is a wonderful photographer! My husband and I were a little nervous when we arrived at our engagement shoot site because it was our first professional session. Courtney instantly went to work posing us which eased our nerves. We left there knowing we were in great hands for our wedding day! I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, Courtney is a rockstar! We can’t wait to have her take our pictures for future milestones. We love you girl!

- Candice + Dylan Gramling

"Her laid back personality is just what you need on your wedding day."

Courtney is amazing!! Her laid back personality is just what you need on your wedding day when the stress level is high. She is super professional and has an amazing eye. She is able to see a shot and take it leaving you more and more time to enjoy your guests and the celebration. I can't say thank you enough for capturing our special day so that we can relive it for many years to come.

- Jenn Pyles Wright

"...we had the easiest decision, we didn’t want anyone BUT Courtney!"

I don’t even know where to begin, besides saying that Courtney is the best photographer I have ever met! She is genuinely interested in getting to know her clients, and she is always interested in your ideas and suggestions! My husband and I have used Courtney for 3 separate occasions now, and when it came time to choose our wedding day photographer, we had the easiest decision, we didn’t want anyone BUT Courtney!
