A couple months ago I was in the same boat you are right now. I had pages and pages of photographers that I had looked at and wrote down notes about, stressed out to the maximum freaking out about finding the best photographer because after all, the pictures are what you'll have... Read More to look at and reminisce for years to come. Well you can stop now because you've found hands down best photographer in ALL THE LANDS. As far as every choice I made, whether it be the venue, food, flowers, all that, choosing Courtney is the best choice that I could have possibly made for my wedding as a whole. She kept the timeline, the mass amount of confused people and family whining about getting their picture taken, and my wants IN. CHECK. She made the entire day/night go so ridiculously smooth, without her it would have been a train wreck. She has such happy, positive and calm vibe about her that no matter what comes at you on you're big day you got an amazing not just photographer but friend right by you're side helping you with EVERYTHING. I had so many family members and even friends that had just gotten married come up to me and say wow, you have the best photographer I've ever seen and I wish I would of had her photograph mine. Heck even my sister's and cousins said they'd use her for their weddings in the future. She absolutely went well over above and beyond more than you could have ever asked from a photographer. Now for the pictures let me tell you, I could cry they were so perfect. She gives you a sneak peak the next day of a couple pictures from the wedding and boy I could not have been more floored. I'm so so so picky about how I look and pictures and they were the most beautiful things I've ever seen. I mean it literally looked like a pictures youd find on pinterest. She knew exactly what poses to do in just the right places. She came early that day just to scope put and plan where to do what. I have friends who got married before me and they are still waiting for pictures but not me ha, she is on top of it, I dont know how she does it. I could not be more pleased with the entire experience that Courtney provides, from initially meeting her, to getting the pictures. Just wait until you see what the USB comes in when you get the pictures after, it's so neat and I've never seen anything like it. Booking Courtney will be the best decision you could make I promise you. :)

I tied the knot back in January and we picked CMS Photography to capture our wedding. Courtney was exactly what I wanted. She made the months leading up to my wedding super easy as far as helping me get together a timeline for her- not to mention I recieved a super cute Bride... Read More bag and koozie for the Groom just for picking her to shoot the wedding. The day of the wedding was perfect. Courtney was on time and instantly started getting to work. I loved that she was not hesitant to introduce herself and let everyone know what she needed from them to keep everything flowing. My family and wedding party LOVED Courtney and how professional she was but also had a great time and made everyone laugh. One thing I appreciated was Courtney’s direction. Me nor my husband are huge picture people and she guided us on what we needed to do how to stand how to look. She just made it so easy and made us so comfortable. We laughed and she was constantly making us smile- which is obviously great for the wedding pictures! I couldn’t have asked for a better person to capture our wedding. After the wedding she stayed in contact on a regular basis to let me know how the pictures were going and I loved having the sneak peaks on CMS Photography Facebook page. Courtney was super quick with getting my pictures to me with a super cute USB set up and another amazing gift she gave to us that she let us pick our favorite picture- don’t want to ruin all the surprises :) just truly overwhelmed with happiness with the whole experience- we will for sure be booking CMS Photography in the future so she can capture other milestones in our life.
