Hello, I'm Courtney

let's get to know each other

I grew up watching my father run his photography studio. To see special occasions turn into beautiful portraits from the time I was young; I knew I wanted to do that for people too.
Fast-forward to 2021 I made the jump to being a full-time photographer traveling through-out Michigan. I fell in love with capturing genuine, pure connections between lovers and families. Getting to know so many different love stories is my favorite part of this job.

Meet Max!

My husband Max is my partner at every wedding or big event we photograph! He's been by my side since I first started my photography journey, and has grown so incredibly much. He enjoys taking photos of the groomsmen and getting to meet so many amazing new people! Max also loves cars and car photography as well!

Life Outside of Photography

When we're not behind the cameras you'll most likely find us out adventuring for some fun new spots to eat or visit! We love trying new things and being adventurous, spending time in the UP or getting to visit all our family and friends in Arizona! We also love our at home days spent with our four crazy cats, binging our favorite shows and feasting on snacks!
Living just outside of Grand Rapids for almost 4 years now, we absolutely love this beautiful city and all the amazing spots and hidden gems!

Life is all about people, moments & emotions that we want to hold on to..

White Rose is described as elegant, warm,

timeless, artistic, adventurous, confident, creative, kind, trustworthy,

and emotive.
