I’m Courtney Blair, an adventure elopement photographer in Utah & Alaska. Above and beyond is in the job description — literally (hey there mountaintop elopements) and metaphorically — leaving no trace and leaving no questions unanswered either. By fostering an adventure-filled wedding experience where unreal views are the usual, this is sure to be an unforgettable adventure.
Don't blame me if you find yourself lost in a daydream, musing over the memories from a once-in-a-lifetime adventure (and love) like this.
“I'm not sure where else you would find photographers willing to go that extra mile, but she does.”
I could not have asked for a better photographer to capture our day from beginning to end. Courtney was very thorough and was readily available at any time leading up to the wedding, providing questionnaires, phone interviews and examples to best help collab and make your vision come to life. She offered great ideas of places throughout the park to take our photos and was willing to drive way out of her way throughout the day to accommodate us and our wedding party. We left that wedding weekend with the most beautiful photos and a new friend!”
“She captured our love so perfectly.”
Don’t know how to pose or too shy to be in front of the camera? Don’t worry because Courtney genuinely makes you feel comfortable and beautiful in front of the camera. She provides guidance and direction but also lets you be yourselves and listens to your vision. Courtney made our first ever photo shoot in 10 years SO special... Now, we get to relive those moments whenever we see the amazing pictures she took. 100% recommend!! :) extra points because she was so good about us bringing our fur baby to our shoot!”
“Courtney was the best photographer [we] could ask for.
My husband and I moved our wedding date around a few times because of differing COVID-19 concerns, Courtney was so understanding through it all. She was knowledgeable about different locations for formals, she helped with poses, and made standing in front of the camera less awkward for me! We got our pictures quickly and I am still obsessed with how beautiful they turned out. Courtney was seriously amazing to work with and I can't recommend her enough.”
Just you and your partner in one of the most beautiful places in the world — it’s sure to bring a soaring feeling that can’t be matched. As a lover of adventure and an introvert at heart, I couldn’t agree more. Nothing can compare to such a rush, so why over-complicate it by throwing in dizzying amounts of detail and stuffy traditions?
Let’s kick open the doors (and maybe stay outdoors too). I’ll help you leave the fussy processionals and droning speeches behind in favor of something a little more organic. Here, aisles are (usually) replaced with dirt trails and glacier paths. With me as your elopement photographer, you get to keep all the warm feelings for yourselves, and a handful of your closest friends and family. Be ready for the unforgettable.
