My name is Courtney McManaway

I'm a Temecula-Valley based wedding photographer that photographs funny, heartfelt, wildly-in-love couples all over Southern California!

my style

The words I use to describe my photography style are colorful, authentic, and emotional!

To me, a wedding day is not only about the love between the couple getting married, but it's also about the connection to family and friends, and the exuberance and joy of celebrating with your nearest and dearest! I utilize the best light in the space and take a light hand towards editing because I want you to remember your emotions of the day 20 years from now, not a trendy editing style!

Hi I'm courtney

I've been a photographer for 12 years now! I've photographed weddings all over Southern California and started my business in Orange County; I'm currently located in the Temecula Valley area and shoot a ton of weddings here in Temecula!

I love getting to know clients, helping them with vendors, and creating a wedding day timeline to ensure you have a STRESS-FREE day

my story

While my photo style is the primary reason clients hire me, your experience is just as important to me! 

BOOK HER NOW. Courtney was absolutely phenomenal

From start to finish she worked so hard and was super encouraging during it all. I personally feel really awkward and uncomfortable taking photos but she made it fun and I absolutely love love love the photos. I showed them to all my friends and I already have a friend that just got engaged asking for Courtney's contact info because she too loved how my photos turned out. I would 100% recommend Courtney for not just wedding photos but for any event/family photos.
