THE GIRL BEHIND THE ART
Hey there! Call me Kortni.
I’m a small town girl that grew up in the Adirondack mountains of New York that has a big sense of adventure. I love traveling the world for work + for fun! I’m a wife to my best friend. His name is Mike + he’s a cutie! We’re kind of inseparable. If you’re into Eneagram + Myers-Briggs, you should know that I’m a 9w8 + an ISFP. Some things I love are working out, being outdoors, traveling + watching dumb TV shows in bed with my Mike. I can’t start my day without a cup of coffee (w/ almond milk!) + I’m totally not a morning person!
I’ve always been artistic, but not very good at the traditional drawing, painting, etc. I had a few older friends that were into photography + they sparked my interest in it which led to me buying my first real camera. I kept falling more in love with photography + eventually realized how much I enjoyed photographing people which led to weddings! I shot my first wedding 6 years ago, but I started shooting + loving photography when I was in middle school.
For over 2 years I was the Creative + Branding Manager at an international non-profit organization up in the Adirondacks where I managed all of their photography, graphic design + video content. Now I’m a full-time freelance Wedding Photographer + Graphic Designer. I have a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Graphic Design and a minor in Photography, Business + Studio Arts from Liberty University.
I love capturing love, timeless portraits, candid moments + creative adventures. My unique style is journalistic photography, capturing moments as they unfold in the areas of portraits, engagements, weddings, elopements + just about anything to do with people. I’m constantly capturing real moments, raw emotions + creating art as I adventure all over the world. I strive to take photos that evoke emotion + take you back in time.
