Hey, I'm Peighton!
Also known as "C", “P”…or "Little C".
Where I'm From
This part of my story is what I like to describe as the messiest. SO! I was born in Cold Lake, and lived on Vancouver Island until I was about 11, and then my family was posted to Edmonton. We have been here for nearly 15 years now, and even though I never enjoyed calling Edmonton "home", it truly has grown on me. I spend a lot of my time outside hiking, fishing, surfing, camping, running with my dog, photographing, traveling..etc. I'm ALWAYS outside, it's truly where my heart is the most full. Being in Alberta has taught me many of these outdoor skill sets, and I have learned to embrace and share gratitude to Alberta and all of it's beautiful terrains and locations. We have the Rocky Mountains, we have drumheller, prairies and farm land, and then we have the river valley, and beautiful lakes. I miss the ocean, but I truly appreciate Alberta.
Something new over the last year that has taken place is my name change. A lot of you know me as Court. For many years, I waited to decide fully when and if I was going to change it. But without hurting my family, I decided to keep Courtney, and go by my middle name which is Peighton! For those of you know still now me as Court are still so more than welcome to call me this!
I’m excited for the personal change and what is to come of it :)
how did you start?
It all started for me when I was introduced to Photoshop at 13 years old. I LOVED horses and I began to teach myself how to make photo manipulations from stock images. Nerdy, I know. But I loved it! This continued until I was about 15 and eventually this love for Photoshop left me momentarily, but this is when I first picked up my friends dad's canon Rebel..My best friend and I would skip classes in high school to get ready and jump around town to take photos of each other. It wasn't until May 2017, I bought my first used Canon 5D Mark III, and began my photography journey. I am now just one year over being launched, and it has been SO humbling to see my business become so successful and just a very short year. My friends, family, and amazing clients have been so patient, trusting, and loving towards my journey and I can not express my thank yous' and gratitude enough. Truly!
I am 100% ALWAYS available for travel! Ever since I visited Africa in February 2018, I have been forever bit by the travel bug and would absolutely LOVE to connect with couples who are adventurous, and want someone with a similar mindset and passion to capture their authentic love in a place that is special to them. I travel to Vancouver Island 1-2 times a year to visit friends and family. You can always connect with me anytime to see where I will be and when to line anything up!
I will 100% hike with you if you are experienced hikers! It is super important to have all of your hiking equipment. If you are planning an elopement that requires a hike, sign me up!
I am used to doing it all, and would LOVE to be apart an epic hike that involves you saying your "I Do's" or "YES! I will!".
Working with me
When you decide to work with me, be ready for a year of memorable adventure. I embrace your moments when your hair is a mess and your eyes are full of tears. I am not a stand-pose-smile traditional photographer. I can be described as wild, authentic, intimate and striking. I put a lot of heart and soul into not just my photography, but our experience together. My clients become my friends. The goal to every client I have is to build a life lasting friendship.It's truly the most important to me!
