Courtney Potter Weddings in Raleigh-Durham

    Your wedding is an expression of who you are as a couple, and chances are you’re planning a celebration that’s a little unconventional. Your wedding won’t be traditional – why should your wedding photography? My passion is to help you break free from the mainstream, reject the mediocre, and really, honestly, be true to yourself.

    I’m an award-winning photographer with an artistic documentary style. Just like you, I’m tired of the same old cookie-cutter shots (the sappy couple pose that could slay a 90’s rom com, the wedding party that seems to have turned into statues, the dreaded prom pose...). On your big day I’ll capture the spontaneous, authentic moments that really matter. Like when the ceremony has to stop because you’re both laughing too hard, or when your partner cries after they swore they wouldn’t. Like when your sister grabs your boob during a family portrait, and at the end of the night when the dance floor is super sticky with beer, but nobody cares. When you look back on your wedding photos for years to come, you’ll truly be able to relive the day – with all of its mountain-top moments, quirky details, and unexpected turns.

    Other photographers may view your wedding as just another gig. For me, your celebration is the culmination of the larger story of your journey together as a couple. In order to tell that story, I’ll spend time getting to know both you and your partner before ever picking up my camera. I’ve photographed all sorts of weddings: same-sex, Indian-fusion, Jewish, and blended families. Whatever your orientation, culture, or creative vision - I’ll collaborate with you throughout the planning process. Whether you have a bounty of ideas or choose to give me free rein, I will always stay true to you.

    I’ll scout out your venues, work around your schedule, and rely on your input. I plan and plan so that on your special day we’ll have the flexibility to work around any surprises. On the wedding day I’ll be there for you – from your pre-game with your posse, to when you kick off your shoes and kill it on the dance floor. The final product will capture not only the events of your wedding celebration, but also those beautiful, raw, unscripted moments that make the story yours.
