Hey everyone! I've been working very hard on some new changes to Cortni Marie Photography. Soon, you'll have to update your bookmarks ;) There's still a little more to be done, but just thought I would give you the heads up!

Spring is in full arrival here...actually, I think summer may be right around the corner, ha! If you are thinking about booking a session, please do so soon!! Everyone likes to take advantage of the beautiful weather. Right now is the perfect time to book a session for mother's day and father's day! There's no better gift than the gift of some wonderful memories. You can contact me for more details at

And because it just doesn't feel right to post without a picture...

Casey and Ben | Charlotte, NC Engagement Photographer

I spent an entire day with this couple who happens to be very super special to me. It's my beautiful sister and soon to be brother in law. They are tying the knot on August 1st, 2009. We had a blast exploring different locations to get some shots that fit their personalities. What's great about them is they aren't afraid to be themselves in front of me or my camera and lets face it, we all get camera shy. I felt like a paparazzi snapping shots of them, which is what I love because I get to capture true moments instead of just staged ones. So, as promised, here's just a taste of our session (that literally lasted 8 hours! ha!). I had fun and I'm pretty sure they did too :)

They are each others future :)

Beautiful blue eyed couple

Can't wait for August 1st! I get to stand beside her on her big day which is a huge honor to me!

Until next time...

It's almost here! |Charlotte, NC Childrens Photographer|

The warm weather! We've had some very very beautiful days, and soon, it'll be here for good. I'm really looking forward to Spring, except for my crazy allergy attacks! But I just love the perfect weather and all the beautiful blooms! We always take full advantage of gorgeous days because they don't last long. I'm not a hot weather person which means I don't really love our Summers. The heat + humidity combo we have down south isn't fun for me so Spring goes way too fast for my liking, but I'm really looking forward to no more freezing temps and cold rain!

This shot just makes me long for Spring/Summer even more! That warm light....{sigh} You would never know it's still winter.


Stay tuned for a fun engagement session!

Please excuse my lack of posts in the last few weeks. I've been extremely sick with just about everything you can think of. I'm currently battling the flu and I think I'm winning today...who knows about tomorrow though, haha. So, since I'm having an ok day, I figured I'd sign in and post a new shot to go with my last post. Same tree, same flowers. Aren't they so pretty?


It may look like spring has arrived, but trust me, doesn't feel like it now. I'm ready for the warmer temps so I can start my outdoor shoots!

If you are interested in booking a session, please email me! I'd love to hear from you!

|One More| charlotte, nc photographer

A few days before our snow day, I noticed a flower bush in front of our house had buds all over it. I couldn't believe it! It's not cold here compared to other states, but it gets pretty chilly so I was surprised to see these pretty little bright pink buds growing. In North Carolina, our weather is very fickle. One day it'll be 70 degrees, and the next it'll be freezing, or in this case, snowing. I thought this was the perfect picture to describe NC and it's crazy weather. This wasn't a spontaneous spring snow shower. It's winter here, full blown winter since the coldest days usually kick in around January around here. How pretty are these perfectly bright pink buds covered in snow? They are dead now. They couldn't survive in those freezing temps, but I look forward to seeing them again soon.
