About

Courtney Stockton_Napa Wedding Photographer_0152

| Wine Country Wedding Photography for the Elegantly Fun Couple |

My work can be described as charismatic, joyful & vibrant. It is playful, yet sophisticated; modern, yet timeliness. I focus on capturing those magical moments in a real and honest way, prioritizing natural light and moments over poses.

My style is natural, organic and free. While I may ask you to sit and smile for me, I will more likely ask you to run, play and even dance. I strive to create images that illustrate the pure joy in these moments and represent your character, quirks and love. I love vibrant color, photos with personality and authenticity.

My wedding & portrait photography is a unique mix of photojournalism & styling + art direction. I am passionate about working with my clients prior to the wedding/portrait session, to help plan for the best possible lighting scenarios & maximize the visual style.

After being inspired by my own love story, wedding & wedding photography, I decided to study photography at Academy of Art (I love school! ha, I used to be a high school teacher). I began shooting weddings in 2012 & haven’t looked back! I live in Calistoga, CA with my husband Joey (& second shooter!), our son Theo (aka Theo Bear) & our dog Louie.  I’d be honored to chat with you more about your wedding, please get in touch at courtney@courtneystockton.com!

My work has been featured on Green Wedding Shoes, Grey Likes Weddings Wedding Chicks, Maharani WeddingsEver Ours, Le Magnifique, Desiree Hartsock’s wedding blog here , here & here, Bridal Musings here & here, Glamour and Grace & here, Grey Likes Baby, La Petite Peach, and Evoking You
