“Life is art.” This is the quote that inspires Courtney Stockton and how she approaches her work every day. This lifestyle photographer was inspired by her own wedding planning experience. Her favorite part? Looking for a photographer! Courtney realized her love for weddings and wanted to be a part of that process for other couples!
Based in Napa, California, Courtney is honored when couples invite her to tell their love story through her lens. Her photos are candid, romantic, natural and free. She encourages her clients to have fun during their sessions, having them run around and be a little silly. It’s more than simply smiling and posing for the camera!
“I am a lifestyle photographer that focuses on creating fun and charismatic imagery that centers on the emotion and energy of my subject(s).”
Courtney believes that every wedding story is a good one. She always makes sure to capture the look on the grooms face when he first sees his bride.
The works of Peggy Sirota, Annie Liebovitz and Erik Almas continually inspire Courtney, as does her own love and marriage. Check out another one of her favorite quotes from Cecil Beaton:
“Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary.”
