capturing the adventures of love

about us

hi there, i'm courtney

I’m so happy you’re here! When I’m not capturing the beautiful love stories of others, my husband, Matt, and I enjoy the journey of creating and building our own. Together, we are renovating our old horse farm inside and out, slowly making it our own slice of heaven. We love the process and the endless project, from building a garden and replacing fence posts to gutting bathrooms and refreshing the living space. Even through trials and definitely lots of errors, we’ve had fun learning to become woodworkers, gardeners and interior designers. 

You can often find us chasing around our baby girl, Charley, and playing in the fields with our two pups, Gus and Ellie. Evenings are best enjoying a fire, glass of red wine and taking in the beautiful sunset. When we're not home, we love traveling between Maine, Pennsylvania and Virginia. We have a soft spot for the Maine coast, horse country in Pennsylvania and the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. It doesn't get any better!

Crispy bacon is a straight up weakness and I have never met a cinnamon roll I didn’t like, but the gooier the better!

 I grew up in Virginia, but call upstate Maine home too! It’s one of the most beautiful drives in the country and a trip I've made countless times a year. It signifies family, home and feelings of nostalgia for my childhood.

Exercise with the family


fun facts

Whether it’s Peloton rides or CrossFit workouts, we love the motivation and friendly competition. We are the best version of ourselves when we can fit in daily exercise. These days with a little one on the run, cardio includes dance parties in the kitchen or running down the driveway with the stroller. Wouldn't have it any other way. 

Pro tip: install a swing in your home gym for the little one, she loves the motion and the rhythm of the beat while cheering us on!

Not-so-sorry to all the cats. Our pups are our furbabies. Gus is our little lovebug Cavapoo (Cavalier King Charles & Poodle mix) and Ellie is our sweet Golden Retriever.
