Coming Soon

Saturday, January 24, 2015

Hey all, get excited. A new website for Courtney Leigh Photo + Video is in the works and I can't wait for you to see it!


Charlene + Cheresse

Monday, December 22, 2014

There's nothing quite like a sister. These photos are proof of that. This session was in honor of Cheresse's 10th birthday, so we did it up big -- rocking out to "All About That Bass" (Cheresse's favorite song), flipping hair, and laughing (a lot). 


Erika + Joey

Thursday, November 6, 2014

Erika and Joey's engagement session consisted of: good light, golden trees, comfy sweaters, cozy blankets and lots of love. I can't wait to document more precious moments between these two at their wedding come July 2015. For now, bask in the beauty of their Macomb engagement shoot.



Mara + Andrew

Monday, October 20, 2014

This couple, you guys. So, so sweet. For their engagement shoot on the University of Illinois campus, we started out at the Arboretum. (Autumn did good there -- go visit.) And we ended up on the good ol' Quad. I cannot wait to photograph Mara and Andrew's wedding in May 2015. 




Kaleigh + Matt

Sunday, October 12, 2014

I am now a firm believer in having couples dance: swing, slow, any kind. Dancing makes for beautiful, authentic photos. Thankfully, Kaleigh and Matt are expert swing dancers, and they were eager to show off their moves. Here are some of my favorite photos from their engagement session at Allerton Park. It was a sweet preview to their wedding, which I'll be shooting September 2015.




Katie + Michael

Thursday, September 18, 2014

This day, this wedding, this couple ... Perfect. I hope you can feel the love that Katie and Michael have for each other through this sweet little film. Enjoy! :)


Margaret + Thomas

Sunday, August 3, 2014

I'm beyond excited to share Margaret and Thomas's wedding video with you. I couldn't have asked for a more easy going, sweet couple to work for -- especially with this being the first wedding I've ever filmed. Their day was filled with family, friends, fresh flowers, lots of love and beautiful details. Congratulations you two!
