About Us

Welcome!

Faith, family and friends. Most important things in our lives.
Traveling all over, chasing love and light.

After photographing 5 years abroad, following the 2010 Haiti earthquake,  I moved back home to my home town of Richmond, VA to pursue other dreams. While working with a local One-for-One company one Friday afternoon, I bumped into Trevor.

…Well, a bottle of wine, brutal honesty and two weeks later, Trevor and I knew we’d spend the rest of our lives together. 
Backed with a film degree, a career both in front and behind the camera, a special effects & pyro-technician license and a crazy hunger for adventure and life. It was a match made in heaven.

Trevor doesn’t really realize it, but he saved my life in so many ways. He made me believe in soul mates, and perhaps thats the reason why I love to photograph other couples love stories so much. 

Now we live wherever a good story takes us. (Currently turning a retired military truck into a tiny-home-RV.)

Home is wherever we’re together and wherever your wedding is happening!

My siblings are my best friends. My parents are the greatest people I know.
Our two fur babies, Duke + Louis, are treated better than any human I know.

We travel often, love people and put our faith in Christ.

We are lucky & blessed indeed.
-Trev + Kourt

I never photograph without my second shooter
and husband, Trevor.
(Backed with a film degree and years of experience working both behind and in front of the camera, he’s the best.) He often writes our blog post as well!

I partner with, Sarah Elizabeth Videos, to ensure you can have it all for your event! Check her page out by clicking on the the link above.

Nicole Laughlin is my hair & makeup expert. She’s a goddess!
I wouldn’t do a boudoir shoot without her. I highly recommend her for wedding day makeup!

Why Photography?

First of all. I love people. Everyone has a passion,
or something that they just love to do.
The gym, cooking, painting, etc. For me, photography is a form of art that allows me to express moments as I see them.
I’ve never been much of a writer, but photos, tell the story for you in a way that words can’t sometimes and that’s always fascinated me.
