Justin & Courtney


Justin and Courtney are a laid-back, loving, friendly, and outgoing couple. They are passionate about their pups, they are adored by their friends, they love to have a good time, and they ‘ain’t afraid of a little booty grab ;) Their wedding day was a perfect reflection of them, as their day started off with a relaxing morning for the girls getting ready at the barn, and the fellas showing up with Justin and Courtney’s pups mid afternoon. It was a beautiful, sunny day!

We started off with Courtney’s first look with her dad. It was truly something special, the look on his face was priceless when he saw his daughter on her wedding day, and the tears did not stop flowing. Shortly after that, Courtney and Justin got to see each other for the first time and then we wandered around the lovely property of the Peterson’s Red Barn with their whole bridal party. They certainly had a fun group of friends!

One of my favorite parts of their day was cocktail hour. Everyone enjoyed sipping cocktails from their adorable bar, Blue Stag Mobile bar, while playing lawn games and enjoying each other’s company. They had a great playlist going in the background, and it was just a lovely setting.

My absolute favorite part of the day though was golden hour, and not just because the light was pretty. Golden hour on Justin and Courtney’s wedding day of course included some epic portraits with just the two of them frolicking out in the open field as husband and wife! But, then we also came back to their whole party being back outside, having left the dance floor, to play drinking games at sunset. Justin and Courtney delightfully joined in. We ended golden hour with some girl squad pics. Love me a good group of girlfriends that will kick their shoes off and run around an open field, swaying their dresses, hugging each other, and enjoying the beauty of true friendship.

Court and Justin, your wedding was TOO fun! I enjoyed being a part of and soaking up every bit of it, just as much as I enjoyed capturing every moment of it. Thank you for including me on your wedding day, I feel blessed to know you guys and consider you friends as well!
Your unique love is so fun for me to capture and I hope to get to do so for many years to come. Cheers to Mr. and Mrs. Kempf!
