Courtney Louise is a professional Gloucestershire based wedding photographer who covers mainly the Cotswolds and the surrounding counties (Wiltshire, Oxfordshire, Bristol). She also travel all over the UK with her wedding photography and is always happy to shoot destination weddings.
"I photograph weddings in a very laid back, un-obtrusive manner, capturing the whole day as it unfolds in front of me. I photograph all the elements of the day discreetly; creating a great mixture of natural moments, soft and romantic private newly-wed photos, relaxed group shots and never missing those sweet little details- all photographed with beautiful, natural light.
A few of the local Gloucestershire venues who recommend me include Kingscote Barn, Manor By The Lake, Charingworth Manor, Old Down Manor, Merriscourt Barn and the Bowood Hotel."

We had great fun looking through the photos, they’re brilliant and we cant wait to share them with all of our friends and family.
You really managed to capture the spirit of the day and everyone has commented on how happy and friendly you were, even after a full day on your feet in the blazing heat!
Choosing a wedding photographer has to be the hardest decision to make. The photos are one of the only things left after the wedding and the photographer is essentially a guest, so you have to be really sure they’ll fit in amongst your friends and family and take the kind of images you want to look at in 50 years’ time. We’re so pleased that we chose you and we can’t recommend you highly enough.
Thank you for all of your hard work, from meeting us multiple times in various locations, to the engagement shoot, to the wedding itself, to the super speedy post-production and somehow ensuring the adorable little box was waiting for us when we got back from our holiday! We really appreciate it, as do our guests.

Courtney was the first photographer I met, but I knew immediately from meeting her she was right for us. So relaxed and lovely, and her photos were just incredible. She made everything very easy. On the day she was wonderful, she just blended in like one of the wedding party. She made the whole process so relaxed and we hardly noticed her there. She captured the day beautiful, taking photos of all the little details. She even stayed late to take some great photos of the evening Ceilidh! We couldn't be happier with the photos, they are amazing! And they arrived so quickly! Can't wait to get the album now. Thank you so much for taking such wonderful photos of our special day 😊 xxx

Courtney was simply fantastic from day 1! Early on she took it upon herself to find out who key family members were, and the important relationships we wanted documenting on the day - this meant the quality of the natural shots were stunning, and really caught the essence of the day.
She gave invaluable advice throughout the morning, I turned to her a number of times for tips and tricks of the trade whilst getting ready! During the formal shots, she made us both feel incredibly relaxed with her warm and bubbly nature, and as a result, we thoroughly enjoyed that part of the day.
The quality of her work was incredible - we knew she was good when we booked her, but she totally blew us away when we got our photos through! She blended in so well that we called her the Photo Ninja!
Such a lovely person, and fantastic photographer, I simply cannot recommend her enough! We got the photographs through really quickly after the wedding, and have just received our wedding album too!
Thank you Courtney, you did a sensational job, we really can't thank you enough!!

Working with Courtney was a breeze from start to finish. She was immediately warm and friendly and responded to our relaxed style towards the photography at our winter wedding. We wanted to sit back and enjoy the whole day without having to spend hours having photos taken or our guests being dragged around to various spots and instead wanted natural shots taken throughout the day. Courtney provided exactly what we wanted, blended in as a guest and sent the photos to us in super quick time after the wedding. We really couldn't have asked for anything more!

We are so glad we hired Courtney to be our wedding photographer! The photos were perfect and she did a fantastic job capturing so many little moments and details from our day. Her work speaks for itself but she is also courteous, professional, relaxed and a genuinely lovely person. Courtney is everything you could want from a wedding photographer and we couldn't recommend her highly enough.
