She is the keeper of your precious moments, hilarious fumbles, goofy faces, pet peeves, and little blessings. She captures it all in a few still frames with an eye for imperfection that becomes the best representation of your whole world. Courtney is amazing at finding that love, joy and grace of a moment and allowing us to cherish it forever. Being a mommy of some energetic boys herself, Courtney embraces the chaos of our little family and helps remind us that every second in this life is beautiful.
-Andy and Courtney Clouse, Akron, NY
Courtney had an incredible knack of keeping us engaged and making the entire process so effortless and enjoyable. Her personality is infectious, and she is certainly skilled in bringing out and capturing genuine personalities with her photography. Our time with her flew by, and when she wasn’t making us laugh, she was listening, and patiently moving us towards the next setting and shots. And when she shared with us the proofs, wow did she deliver a host of incredible and precious depictions of our family!
She truly is a gifted artist and offered her expertise again with our son’s graduation pictures. She uncovered and captured the subtle blends and essence of his character while accompanying his passions in each still shot. We are forever grateful to Courtney for capturing and preserving these milestone family events for us!!
-Dan and Gina Miller, Clarence, NY
Highly recommend Courtney !!! Along with doing an amazing professional job, she listened to what was important to us!!
-Cathy Gerhardt, Winter Garden, FL
Where do I even start? Courtney not only takes beautiful pictures, but she herself is a beautiful person! Courtney has photographed my engagement pictures, my wedding and now my family photos. She is so easy to work with, so incredibly kind, and really gets to know you and your family which makes it so much easier to be photographed when you are comfortable and truly know the person capturing your life's most precious moments. We love Courtney !
-Shawn and Ashley Hazlett, Corfu, NY
Courtney photographed our wedding (almost) 4 years ago and we couldn’t have been more pleased with the result! She does a great job of asking lots of questions ahead of time to ensure she captures all the photos we wanted. We especially love the wedding album she created for us. Would happily recommend her!
-Dan and Sarah Osika, Buffalo, NY
This woman has truly captured the most wonderful moments of our lives. We started our journey 9 years ago with our wedding, then continued with the newborn and 1 year photos with our 3 children. Her attention to the little things and getting the shot that reflects our family and that moment in time perfectly. I am so proud to display her work in my home. I am so thankful to Courtney for helping us keep beautiful memories of our family. She is a blessing to us and has become a wonderful friend.

- Joe and Katie Swierczynski, Cheektowaga, NY
I wanted to let you know how much Pete's family (and I) treasure that family photo you took of us a year and a half ago. Not only did we lose Aunt Karen that December, but we unexpectedly lost Mom Maier this past weekend….The family picture you took of us was on display at the funeral home and so many people commented on how beautiful it was. I never realized back when I orchestrated that gift for Mom and Dad that it was actually orchestrated by God instead. He knew that He was going to take Mom home sooner than expected and He gave us that gift.
-Jeanine Maier, Buffalo, NY

We can’t thank you enough for all you did on our wedding day. I am usually a well-organized person but throw some wedding plans into the mix and you are looking at a full-fledged flake! In the midst of cake, food, drinks, seating, music and PICTURES (oh my! ;o) I had my list of all these pictures ideas I had in floating around in my head and what did I do with this list…left it on the counter. However you stepped right in took charge and let your creativity flow, you embraced the true spirit of our wedding. Josh and I are not your typical couple and we defiantly did not have a typical wedding you were able take a crazy day of laughing, trampoline jumping, groomsmen swimming and some bad but entertaining dancing and you captured every beautiful moment of our day. You were able to wrangle the wedding party and the rather LARGE ‘Blasko’ family, which is admittedly, is as easy as herding cats. And on top of it they all loved you! We are however now faced with the task of picking our favorites from this selection of amazing photos; I must say I have no idea how I am going to choose!! We are happy to be faced with this great task and can to wait to see the printed products. Seeing your link to our photos made our weekend!! We were able to relive our fun filled wedding day!Thank you for keeping me sane when it started pouring rain. Thank you for being a great sport. Thank you for being so kind to our kids. Thank you for making sure we had lots of fun pictures. Thank you for making our wedding party listen to you… AND still like you! Thank you for catching moments we missed, but wanted to see. Most of all, thank you for being our photographer!
-Dusty & Josh Blasko, Akron, NY
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being a special part of RJ’s first year of life. You helped us create and “save” many memories and beautiful moments that he so quickly grew out of! The time and thought you put into each album and shoot is appreciated.
Thanks for your patience with us…You do great work!
-Bob and Christine Swierczynski, Amherst, NY
Words cannot describe how fortunate and thankful we are to of had you as our wedding photographer. You made everything that day go seamless. You are so dependable, timely, and professional. Because of these qualities, it made it really refreshing to have one less thing to worry about for our wedding. We never had any doubts that you wouldn't do an amazing job! Even though it poured on our wedding day, the pictures were beautiful. Weddings go by in a flash and we're so lucky to have all of our special moments captured. All of our friends and family are in awe of how beautiful our wedding album is. We are looking forward to being able to cherish our wedding album for many years to come and share it with our future kids and grand kids. Thanks so much again Courtney! We truly appreciate all of the hard work you put into making our wedding amazing.
-Brian and Alicia Jenkins, Tonawanda, NY
What the heck would I have done without you at the Christmas show this year? It gave me such peace of mind knowing you were the one taking the pictures and that you needed very little hand holding in the process! Thank you for helping us and being so reliable!

That day it was rainy and cold, but those pictures I really feel like they truly depict our story so far…it was not the most picture perfect situation but you made it beautiful. I don’t know what I was expecting, but whatever that was, you surpassed that. It was a nice teaser before the wedding. I can’t wait for the wedding now!
