I strive to create unique portraits that capture the essence and spirit of each individual, couple, friendship and family. 

My hourly rate for a portrait session starts at $95.

A session includes:

About a week after the session, an online, digital gallery of images, which is password protected, will be available to you.  You will be able to view and download your images right from the gallery.  

Prints can be purchased separately from a professional lab service through Courtney Ley Photography.  The minimum order for prints is $15.  Many print sizes are available.

Books, cards, calendars and other products are also available.  A designing time fee will be added to the order.  Contact me for details.


 I am passionate about the adventure that the mountains and outdoors provide. I have climbing and mountaineering experience and have travelled to the major mountain ranges in the United States including the Sierra, Cascades, Rockies, Appalachian Mountains and the Alaska range. I also enjoy skiing, mountain biking and road bike touring. Having these skills and ability allows me to access the outdoors in a way that some photographers can not. If you have an adventure and would like to document it in striking, story-telling images, I have the ability to accompany you and provide that service.  Investment starts at $350.


During any wedding or occasion, my goal is to capture the special moments but do so discretely, as to not disrupt your experience. It is your day and should be kept as that beautiful time that you share with your friends and family. That said, I also enjoy getting those staged and choreographed shots that produce images you couldn't get just through candid shots! Those can be fun and exciting to design and plan.  I offer affordable pricing for couples that starts at $500.  Please feel free to contact me to talk about your wedding day and we can work out an investment you will be happy with!

I would also love to be your photographer at any other event, whether it's your children's sports game, a birthday party, corporate event or a family reunion. Investment starts at $250 for these type of events.

"We cannot say enough wonderful things about Courtney Ley Photography! Courtney is just amazing and so talented. Her patience and professionalism put at ease two awkward and nervous brides and produced stunning photos. Courtney beautifully captured our wedding ceremony and reception without us even know she was there. I do not know how she did it. Group shots, dancing shots, embraces, she captured so many little natural moments that we are just so grateful to have and will cherish forever.  We are in awe of her work."


"Wow! All I can say is, Wow!! Courtney was amazing. She was professional, personable, and VERY easy to work with. I am incredibly happy that we decided to work with her for our wedding. I cannot express how happy I am with the photos from our wedding. You will not be dismayed if you go with Courtney. She is fantastic! Thank you Courtney for doing such a wonderful job on our photos."      


"The best! Courtney is professional, reliable, and has an easy going attitude that makes her fun to spend time with (which is important when you're one on one taking photos). My fiance and I hired her to take some engagement photos for us, and we are beyond thrilled with how they came out. Courtney has a great eye for detail and is honest in her approach. We hope she is available to photograph our wedding next year! We would recommend Courtney to anyone for any life event they want captured. You will not be disappointed if you choose Courtney Ley Photography - we are so glad we did!"

"We cannot say enough good things about Courtney! My fiancé hired her for a surprise proposal photo session and the pictures turned out so great, it made the day even more special to have such amazing memories captured. We loved working with her so much that we asked her to do our engagement session as well! Of course, the photos turned out amazing again! We hope to work with Courtney again soon!"
