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!

You guys, I have been obsessed and amazed with light lately. There's just something about it: the warmth it creates, the shadows, the contrast. I love it so much that I had to document it's beauty, as simple as it is. These photos are my ode to the light.

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

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

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.
