Courtney is absolutely amazing. My husband and I were a little anxious about taking engagement photos since we had never been professionally photographed before, but Courtney instantly put us at ease. She guides you into very natural and beautiful poses, and nothing feels forced. When it came time for our wedding day, we were both so comfortable with her and trusted our photos would turn out beautifully, and we were not disappointed. Courtney surprised us on our honeymoon with a slideshow preview set to our first dance song and the pictures are everything. Courtney is so fun and upbeat and somehow managed to wrangle in my husband's 11, very rowdy, groomsmen. I've already told her that she will be hearing from us when it's time for maternity photos! I cannot recommend Daybreak and Dusk enough to anyone out there looking for a photographer!

We booked Daybreak + Dusk for our wedding last May. Courtney was super easy to work with, even for a camera shy couple. She finds ways to make you more comfortable on camera and creates a playful atmosphere. She also dabbles in film which was fun for us to experiment with. We loved getting to know her and her style in the engagement session, which also made our wedding day photos way less stressful.
On our wedding day, she helped keep us on schedule and captured some really awesome moments for us, all while being super fun and easygoing (and her assistant Lily was great too!). We got some sneak peeks only a couple days after the wedding, and our full online album about a month later, which is an amazing turnaround! All around an amazing photographer and person.

"Courtney is absolutely amazing!!! She is such a joyful and lovely person and we had a bunch of fun doing our engagement shoot with her and having her photograph our wedding! I felt so much peace knowing she had it covered, she does a great job at finding out how she can best make you feel comfortable in front of the camera! Her pictures are absolutely flawless and I couldn't have imagined anything better! We are so thankful to have found Courtney!!"

"I honestly am very grateful to have Courtney be the photographer at my wedding. I was planning to have my wedding at the Langham Pasadena so I had to do some research on the different venue settings. As I surfed the web researching photos for ideas, I came across these beautiful works of Courtney's at the Langham and I believed she would be the perfect photographer for my wedding. I believe that things do happen for a reason rather than a series of random events and with her agreeing to help was such a relief for me and my wife as we were close to the wedding but have yet to find the right photographer. Courtney's work turned out to be exceptional just like we have anticipated. Not only is she professional, she also happened to be a lovely lady who is super nice!"

"Courtney was absolutely amazing to work with! She took both our beautiful engagement and wedding photos. Her professionalism and attention to detail leading up to the event made the experience so stress-free. On the day of our beach wedding, Courtney made us feel so comfortable and brought out the perfect combination of energy and joy from our guests. We are constantly complimented on our photos and couldn't be happier with how they turned out. I highly recommend Courtney for your wedding!"

“Courtney was awesome to work with! She was very responsive with all my questions and was patient with all my indecisive moments. At the wedding, she was organized, professional, and listened to all my and my husband's last minute needs. I'm very awkward in front of the camera and she made me feel comfortable and beautiful. I absolutely loved working with her and would recommend her to any couple about the tie the knot. PLUS, the photos were fantastic! She really captured our moment perfectly and we couldn't be more thankful! All around, the experience working with her was wonderful!”

"Courtney is the absolute best!!! She has such positivity and genuine joy in what she does, and her pictures are wonderful. We are so lucky to have found her to capture our wedding. We won't use any other photographer in the greater L.A. area. Choose Courtney for any kind of event/shoot, she won't disappoint!"

"Courtney provided us with stunning engagement photos! Going into it, we were nervous about being in front of the camera but thanks to Courtney's happy demeanor and clear direction, we never felt awkward and ended up enjoying the whole experience. The resulting photos are so beautiful and ones we will cherish for years to come. I will certainly recommend her to my future clients!"

"We cannot recommend Courtney enough! She has done several family shoots for us since our son was a newborn. From our initial experience with her, she has always been kind and patient. She's been extremely flexible with our photoshoot requests including location, scheduling, special baby needs, allowing our dog to participate, and props to include in the shots. She's very professional, gets digital prints back to you in an extremely fast turnaround, and is affordable particularly for Los Angeles! Most importantly, she always delivers truly beautiful pictures! We'll always be grateful to Courtney for the beautiful family photos she gave us capturing our son's first year."

We have gotten so much great feedback on it and it really fit the tone for our web site.
