My desire is not merely to be a photographer, but an artist and my pursuit is as such. My deepest joy in this industry is to create emotive imagery paralleled with my intent to foster a relationship with the Lord and represent that which He establishes in our lives and to meet and work with others who are passionate about the same. My eye seeks authenticity and I thrive with poetic, organic, and honest imagery. From our first interaction, you’ll discover my outpouring desire for genuine, relational connection. This, paired with my ability to truly feel and harmonize with those tender moments of love and emotion are the ideal components that allow for the continuous outcome of timeless and ethereal imagery. I don’t want to simply preserve moments. I want to give you a better understanding of who you are and give a voice to the most intimate pieces of your heart, the things that you place value in… the things that matter most.
Raised in a family that traveled often, I knew the feeling of wanderlust from a young age. Home is a small town in Alabama, where you can find me just as often, with my husband, Justin, and our little dachshund, Cooper.
The early stages of my career began in art history and design; a short period of time spent in a dark room developing film, I fell in love with the process. Little did I know the passion I would unearth, nor how deeply it would begin to shape the way I view the world around me, establishing the foundation of my timeless photographic approach and olde world aesthetic.

Courtney has such a beautiful vision for her work.
She is thoughtful and intentional with her clients, connecting on a deeper level to treat them with the utmost importance, as if there is no one else around.
I loved working with Courtney - she made me feel comfortable, confident, and beautiful in front of the camera. She is truly a gem; I am so happy to have worked with her and am already planning when we'll work together again!
I can't say enough about how impressed we were from start to finish. During our engagement photoshoot, Courtney made us feel so comfortable and the outcome was breathtaking. Skip forward to our wedding day and she made all the anxiety disappear by making each photo session fun all while capturing each emotion throughout the entire day and night.
Courtney Woodham Photography has created beautiful memories that we will cherish forever!
Courtney is so talented and a pleasure to work with!
I love that she uses both film and digital cameras. The film captures color and texture so well. Courtney spent time getting to know us during engagement pictures and then worked closely with me planning the picture agenda for the wedding day. She was so consultative and did a great job talking through expectations for the day.
I cannot thank her enough for the wonderful pictures of such a special day for us and our families!
Courtney was amazing and I cannot say enough about our experience working with her. She is professional, yet fun and personable and so sweet! We were communicating from different states and she was super responsive and organized. It definitely would have been a train wreck if not for her ability to stay on top of things and manage crazy, happy “my kids just got married” families. She is also super talented, seriously! I cry every time I look through my wedding photos because they were just captured and edited so perfectly. I 100% recommend Courtney.
You will not be disappointed!
Courtney Woodham is a delightful person and a gifted photographer. Our family has been fortunate to have her photograph three special events. Each time, Courtney captured the happy spirit of the event and produced the most beautiful pictures for us. We are thrilled because her pictures are ones we will treasure for a lifetime. It is a joy to be a client of this sweet professional, and it is especially joyful to be the recipient of her tremendous talents!
Courtney is great! She is so accommodating, professional, and helpful! The day of my wedding I was a ball of nerves and not only did she take amazing pictures, but she helped me with literally anything I needed! I would recommend her one hundred times over, and will definitely be using her in the future for any pictures I need taken.
Courtney is everything you could even want or need in a photographer. Her vision and talent transcends what you could ever hope for in a photographer. I was married one day after a hurricane with power outages debris everywhere and I never once had to worry about photos or whether the day would truly be showcased as the happiest of my life, which it was. For an even more anxious bride than the typical, that was a true blessing. I’ve filled my home with beautiful memories of that day, and I owe it all t0 Courtney.
I was completely pleased to have chosen Courtney Woodham Photography to photograph my wedding day. Through the rain, heat, humidity, and blazing sun she worked her complete magic and blew me away with how perfect the photos captured each moment of the day. I have received so many compliments on how beautiful my wedding photos are and how they should be in a magazine! I love to look at the photos over and over again and remember the exact feelings each photo captured so perfectly of that amazing day. Thank you so much, Courtney! You were an absolute pleasure to work with and your work surpassed any expectations I could have ever imagined!
