Thanks for stopping in!

It's exciting that you already realize the importance of quality photography on your wedding day, enough to research and make sure you find the best fit for you and your fiancé.

That said, in addition to quality, I hope to offer you comfort and a wedding photography experience that gives you all the feels: a friend in the industry, who will make at least one decision easier. I know wedding planning can be overwhelming; there are so many options. But - deep breath - this is a time to savor every moment and be reminded of the exciting, life changing love you have found!


once-in-a-lifetime love


hi friend!

I’m Courtney, new mom to the most precious little girl, Mila, and wife to my college crush, Tyler. If I’m not taking pictures you will probably find me planting flowers, or browsing the internet for travel deals with re-runs of Fixer Upper on in the background!

I’m an Auburn University alum, who loves college football Saturday and NFL Sunday. For years I helped promote brands via local television affiliates and printed publications. I was always drawn to the creative side of the corporate world, but knew I wanted to build something of my own. My dream was something that allowed me to cultivate new friendships and have the ability to work from home with little ones someday. Courtney Sample Photography has been the answer to all my prayers - I get to focus on photography, while meeting cool couples and making new friends. 

For more about me, follow me on instagram or shoot me a message! I'd love to get coffee and learn how I can best serve you!

Xo, Courtney

we might be long lost friends if:

You're living your best life at home, in bed, watching a movie, with a clay mask on your face and a hydration mask in your hair..... eating cookies and milk and cuddling your loved ones!

You sneak off to Chipotle at least once a week and eat the entire bag of chips and guacamole.

You love animals and talk to your fur babies like they are human.

You can spend hours scavenger hunting in TjMaxx, Nordstrom Rack and Homegoods.

You'll go bankrupt trying to travel abroad because you love big adventures and seeing new places.
