you do. I do. we do.

The best part of about your wedding is not the details and the frills, it's the celebration of a new beginning; a new team; a new family. It's the only time that all of your favorite people are in one place, at one time, to celebrate YOU!

The good Life

Family sessions with Courtney Z will focus on your life as it is right now. Families change, and kids grow up in the blink of an eye. In 10 years, you'll thank yourself for taking the time to document your unique family dynamic and relationships.

NOt-so corporate

It's time to focus on the person behind the business. What do you want your current and future clients to know about you? What do you want them to see before they walk in the door. Let's show them the real you because that's the best part.

Courtney Z has one, very simple mission:

to save the world


...okay the whole world may be slightly ambitious. Really, my goal is to give you something real. Something that you will look back at in 5, 15, and 50 years from now and be instantly transported to that moment. Something that will make you feel all the same feelings and give you the sweet tinge of nostalgia.

In my experience, the best things in life are those moments that you don't want to let go; when the pretenses and expectations are set aside and we are able to revel in the beauty of real life.

We all have one life to live.
i'm herE to give you back the best of yours.


I'm lucky enough to work with some amazing clients.


I'm still in awe that I get to document one of the most important days in people's lives. It really is an honor to be a part of such an intimate experience. I work to give you something that you will not only love now, but that you will love even more in 35 years. A timeless piece of your life that tells a seamless story of that one perfect day.

In all the world, there is no heart for me like yours.
In all the world, there is no love for you like mine.

Celebrate family. Celebrate life.


It amazing how fast time flies. It sounds cliche, but the truth is I love to document all the stages of life. Life can change so much in 6 months.

I'm here to make sure you can remember the best part of each stage of your life.

Family is not an important thing. It’s everything.

celebrating real life


show the real you


You know what sets you apart from other people/businesses in your field?

it's You!

I work with individuals and small groups to showcase what makes their business unique. Stay true to yourself and your brand and showcase what makes you the right person for your current and future clients.

Don't use another boring headshot to market yourself. Give the people what they want!

People do make judgments for trust on appearance;
in the real world and online.
