About Me

I can’t wait to tell your story.

Hello, i’m COURTENAY!
If you’re hunting for a Dorset wedding photographer who is chill, up for a laugh and completely unflappable when the marquee generator breaks and the venue floods, you’ll feel right at home here.

Stylish documentary wedding photography with a sense of humour – if you’re chill, up for a laugh and planning a quirky fun wedding then we’ll get along famously.

I’m a wedding photographer – but I’m also a storyteller, and every time I press the shutter I try and show that moment. Take a look through my gallery – I do very few set formal poses on the day, 99% of my imagery comes when the subject is unaware I am photographing them.
The images you see in my gallery all have a story to tell, and all were taking as the moment happened – nothing staged, nothing set up or posed, this is weddings as they happen.

I am a Dorset-based wedding photographer, and I’ve photographed almost 1,000 weddings. I love making the ordinary magical, and the invisible beautiful. I also love coffee, mountains, sleeping late and a perfect orange jacket.

I’m Courtenay, and I am a photographer.
It’s a bit simple when you look at it written like that – but really, let’s not make things more complicated than they need to be.

Every wedding day is the same… but every wedding day is different. Yes, there’s always some vows, a kiss, some signing, and some toasts.

But actually? No wedding day is ever the same. This is your day, so let’s have fun with it.

I have won awards for my work, and I’ve been featured in magazines over the years.
If you’re looking for a wedding photographer take a look through my gallery. If you like it – get in touch and let’s have a chat.

It takes a lot of imagination to be a good photographer… everything is so ordinary; it takes a lot of looking before you learn to see the extraordinary.
